"Was this the droid we were looking for?" What exactly is the "Xiaoying" software application bundled with new Android smartphones? A Google search returns the following quote, "Xiaoying is a mobile app focused on filming and sharing mobile phone micro videos and micro films." Can someone please elaborate in GREATER DETAIL the five w's for this application. Who manufactures the Xiaoying application? What is the Xiaoying application's purpose? How does it function? When was the Xiaoying application started? Where did the Xiaoying application originate geographically, and where is it stored on my phone? and Why do I need this application? If I remove Xiaoying, how will it affect my smartphone's performance!!! Respectfully, - John McKnottilus Esq.
