September 2, 2014

When you use your smartphone or tablet as a GPS Navigator, the mapping component often needs to handshake with the internet in order to perform the map updates. This is all fine and good if you are in areas where the updates can occur. An alternative solution that will make your phone and/or tablet a true GPS device is to download the app called MapFactor: GPS Navigator.

MapFactor: GPS Navigation

MapFactor Navigator is a free turn-by-turn GPS navigation app for Android phones and tablets using OpenStreetMaps data. Maps are installed on the SD card so there is no need for an Internet connection when traveling. Map and app updates are FREE every month.  If you live in the U.S., you will have option to download map data for sub-regions and individual states.

DSynchronize – A Stand-Alone Utility That Lets You Periodically Synchronize Two Or More Folders On Your Hard Disk

August 30, 2014

With DSynchronize you should never again have an excuse for not backing up your files. This small utility rocks and is what I use to backup my main folders (such as Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc…) to my external drives. There is no installation.  Download, unzip and run. Simply select your source (the files/folders you want to back up) and select the destination (where you want to back the source files/folders to).

The only negative I see with DSynchronize, is that there is no help file; however, if you go with the “checked” settings (that I use), under General Options and Deleted Files, in the graphic below, you will be good to go. Once you have everything setup, click on “Synchronize”.

ALSO, to further help you, if you watch the YouTube video below, you will get a really good understanding on how DSynchronize works. This is really good software, is FREE, easy to understand and it just plain works. You can even set up DSynchronize to perform a realtime sync. Great job to the developer on this.

NOTE:  To download DSynchronize, visit [HERE], and scroll down the page and you will see it.
