An “Ad Free” Battery Optimizer App For Your Android Smartphone

July 20, 2015

When I saw Intel and McAfee together, as an app logo, it caught my attention. What they have developed is called the Intel Security Battery Optimizer. I know there are some really nice battery optimizer apps out there, but what has drawn my attention to this one is that it works in an ad free environment and it appears that, based on the number of reviews, it is relatively new.

A Mid-Range Inexpensive Smartphone By ASUS

July 7, 2015

ASUS has become a well known product name for desktop computers; BUT, did you know that they make an Android Smartphone that is probably one of the best mid-range inexpensive phones out there. It is called the ASUS ZenFone

ASUS ZenFone 2

Based on the excellent customer reviews at Amazon, this phone is a hit. I am sure the price point on this phone is a main factor; especially, when you start comparing this phone with some of the other more expensive phones (such as the Samsung S6 or Apple’s iPhones). This phone comes unlocked and is compatible with the GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile and cellular network providers utilizing GSM network such as: Straight Talk, Walmart Family Mobile, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile, Brightspot, Net10, h20 Wireless, and Cricket Wireless. I encourage you take a look at the reviews and I think you will agree this phone is a phone to consider. From what I have read the processing power is right up there, but the camera is not up to what maybe the Samsung S6 is…

The ASUS ZenPhone is definitely a phone to consider purchasing straight out to reduce your monthly cell bill where most people are paying for their phone a bit at a time each month.

Features At A Glance:

  • Unlocked, No Carrier Contract required. 4G/LTE Ready
  • Android 5.0 – Lollipop
  • 5.5″, FullHD 1920×1080 IPS
  • Available in 2GB or 4GB RAM
  • Dual SIM slots, Dual Active phone lines
  • Intel Atom Quad Core (1.8 or 2.3GHz) with OpenGL 3.0 support
  • 16GB or 64GB onboard storage
  • 5GB lifetime ASUS WebStorage
  • MicroSD card slot (up to 64 GB)
  • Lastest WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n/ac

The Floating Android Launcher Called Rovers

July 1, 2015

What I like about the Android platform is that you can customize your device to give it an identity of its own. I have always loved menu launchers and many of the app launchers available for the android platform gives you that freedom to customize your device (smartphone or tablet) to your liking.

A launcher that I want to share with you, that has been a hit with me, is the completely customizable app launcher called Rovers, The Floating Launcher. The name of the app pretty much explains that it is a floating “menu” or app launcher that is there when you need it and not there when you don’t need it (and if you are a multi-tasker, this app is for you).

To see Rovers in action, watch the video below:

Rovers will always be there with you, to create the PERFECT multitask utility on Android. With Rovers, you’ll always just one-click away from your favorite apps, shortcuts and actions.

Rovers as a floating launcher:

• Your favorite applications

• Android Shortcuts

• Rovers Actions (special one-click add-ons)

• Folders

Make Rovers your own by:

✓ Choose an icon for each Rover

✓ Change Rover’s color

✓ Organize your Rovers in Folders

✓ Hide the Floating Trigger on the notification panel

✓ Open Rovers Horizontally/Vertically

✓ ‘Edit-Mode’ by long press a Rover

A Software (App) Solution For The Nexus 5 Power Button Problem

May 22, 2015

I started experiencing an issue on my Nexus 5 Smartphone where the phone would enter into a reboot loop, rebuild the app list, etc… (common problem with the Nexus 5 when the power button is failing). If you perform a search on this problem, you will find multiple solutions, including one (last resort solution) where you take the phone and hit it against a table to cause the power button to release itself (which actually worked in my case). Once I did get the phone back to where it was functioning (power button and all), I knew I needed another solution before the power button failed again…

The solution that I found, that has worked for me so far, is an app called Gravity Screen. Gravity Screen will automatically turn “on” your screen when you need it and turn it “off” when you don’t. For example if I lay the phone down on a table or put it in my belt case, the phone will go to sleep. When I pick the phone back up, depending to the length of time it was asleep, the phone will awaken. Pretty neat…

Gravity Screen uses the sensors that are already built into your smartphone. This app, from what I researched, is one of the best out there for what it does; AND, as with any app that controls hardware features, the results can be mixed (depending on the phone, Android OS, etc…).  So far, on the Nexus 5, it has performed superbly and has given me a level of automation where I should never have to touch the power button again, other than on occasions to reboot the phone, etc… This app is not just for broken Nexus 5 phones, but is for any Android Phone; and, if it continues to perform as good as I have experienced, I can see me installing this on my next Android smartphone….

Below is a video explaining how Gravity Screen works and its’ associated features…

Turn Your Android Smartphone Into A Level

May 19, 2015

iHandy Level Free may be a handy app to keep on your phone for those times you are hanging a picture on the wall (to get things straight). Not only handy, but a beautiful app as well.

iHandy Level Free

 

NOTE: Because the sensor inside every individual device could be built slightly differently, to make the level more accurate for your device, you need to calibrate before use.

To calibrate:

1. Find a flat surface.

2. Hold your device upright , put the bottom edge of the device on the flat surface, then press Calibrate button (the one with a target image on it) to calibrate the portrait mode.

3. Turn your device 90 degree clockwise , again keep it upright, and put the current bottom edge (long edge) on the flat surface, then press Calibrate button to calibrate the landscape mode.

4. Put the back of the device against the surface, then press Calibration button to calibrate the face-up mode

5. You are ready to go!

Send Notes and Send Directions To Your Phone From Google Search

April 26, 2015

This week’s hot Google news is similar news from last week, with a different twist, where you can go to the Google Search page (or the Google Chrome’s omnibox) and type in “find my phone” (see article here).

This week Google revealed you can go to the Google Search page (or the Google Chrome’s omnibox) and type  “Send Directions” (to push driving directions to your phone) or “Send Note” (to push a note to your phone). Appears you have to be signed into your Google account through your web browser (Google Chrome) to make this work. READ MORE…
