    I used my LG to make a small video of my grandchildren and when I tried to email it to my wife I got the message that the file was too large. Is ther an app that will let me "zip" the file or somehow make it small enough to send by email? Thanks in advance.

    At the Market there's an app called AndroZip File Manager. If that doesn't solve the problem, you could upload the file to a free, no-registration file sharing site. Another possible solution, depending on the size of the file, is to create an email account at an outfit with a bigger attachment limit.

    How large is the file? Compressing it to a zip file doesn't really cut it down all that much, and email attachments are usually capped at 10 MB, but 20 MB if you're using a Gmail account (and I think they might need to be on a Gmail account, too). So your best bet is to put it on something like Google Drive or Dropbox and send her the link.
