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.

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!

A Must Have Android App

April 24, 2015

Probably one of the most underused functions on computers, by the everyday computer user, is the copy and paste function. I am sure this is probably true when it comes to using our smartphones. As a matter of fact, I randomly asked some of the my friends if they knew how to copy and paste text on their Android phones??? As usual when I ask these geeky type of questions they sort of look at me with that deer in the headlight look and wonder what planet I am from. Every single person I asked this question did not know that was even possible on their phones.

Copying and pasting text from one app to another on our phones is a function you need to learn and if you want to get a good start on this I suggest that you take a look at Easy Copy.

Easy Copy - 1-Tap Copy Paste - screenshot

Easy Copy is an Android app that is better than the standard built-in copy paste function in that it has the following features that makes using the copy paste function a more powerful function. After you tap on copy, a pop-up menu will be displayed and allows to:

  • locate in Google Maps
  • call the number
  • translate with Google Translate
  • create an event
  • modify the text you copied (very useful in Hangouts when you only want to copy part of a message!)
  • send by text
  • share (when not already developed in the given application)

I found that when the menu appears to perform these function, you can drag the order of the menu around to fit your personal needs. For example, on top of my menu list is the “share” function, due I use that function the most.

This app appears to be relatively new app in the Google Play store, so expect some bugaboos; however, my geek senses is telling me that this app will improve and become very, very popular…

Turn Your Android Phone Into A Pocket Document Scanner With Microsoft Lens

April 7, 2015

Currently circulating around in the tech world is news about Microsoft’s popular and free Office Lens app, which turns a smartphone into a pocket document scanner, NOW being offered in Android and iOS versions.

I did take this for a spin and found that it does a nice job of using your camera on your phone and/or tablet to capture a document and saving it to Microsoft OneNote, OneDrive, Word, Powerpoint, or as a PDF or as an image file… One option that I would like to see, is an option to directly share my scanned docs to other services.  You can share to other services, but you have to jump through some hoops to make this happen.

Features in a nutshell:

  • Identifies printed text with optical character recognition (OCR) so that you can search by key word for the image in OneNote or OneDrive.
  • Converts images of paper documents and whiteboard notes into Word documents, PowerPoint presentations and PDF files for easy editing and reformatting.
  • Captures business cards and generates contacts you can add to your phone.
  • Inserts images to OneNote or OneDrive (as DOCX, PPTX, JPG or PDF format) and gives you options to save, export and share the image.

February 11, 2015

I have to love Android and the constant flow of apps that are constantly under development. Flush – The Android Public Toilet Finder is one of the newer apps to hit the Google Play Store that is a real attention grabber.

 Flush - Public Toilet Finder

Flush is a database, with a pretty nice interface (with animations) that will help you find the local public john using the Google Map technology. My first question to this is what happens when I am in need and there is no internet access. No problem with Flush; it works offline, as well.

Features:

. Find public restrooms/toilets quickly and easily

. Locate toilets anywhere around the world, wherever you are

. A database of over 100,000 toilets available, constantly being increased

. A beautiful material design inspired interface

. A quick directions button, to get you directions to a toilet as quickly as possible

. Find whether a toilet has a fee, requires a key or provides disabled/accessibility access

. Works perfectly offline, no internet connection required to find a toilet

Remote Desktop App For Accessing Your Windows (or Mac) Computer Using Your Android Phone or Tablet

January 30, 2015

One of the best Android Apps to remotely access your PC is Splashtop 2. You would never think this is possible, but it is with this app (and it works exceptionally well). I do recommend that if you do give this a shot that you use a tablet computer to take advantage of the screen space.

Splashtop 2 Remote Desktop - screenshot

Simple steps on getting you started… Download and install the Splashtop 2 app to your Android tablet or phone (get it HERE) and download and install the Splashtop Streamer Windows installation to your PC (get it HERE). After installing the Windows app, launch Splashtop on your device and create an account. After creating your account, Splashtop will go looking for your PC. One thing that I did was go into the Spashtop Streamer software on the computer (under “Advanced”) and enter my IP Address for my computer. This made things even better…

How well does this work? In my scenario I am using my Samsung Galaxy Tab S Android Tablet to remotely access my ASUS Desktop Windows 8.1 Computer. Using my setup (as described) I can remotely access my desktop computer from anywhere in my home, start up my WinTV application on my desktop computer and stream TV from the computer to my tablet. I am amazed at how well this works. With Splashtop 2 I can operate my computer from my tablet as if I am sitting at the computer. I have found Splashtop 2 to be an exceptional app…

With Splashtop 2 You Can:

* Use your Android device to access all of the programs and files on your computer with 100% compatibility, including all PC/Mac applications

* Use your full desktop browser with Flash and Java support, with all of your bookmarks and your favorite plug-ins

* Enjoy the full video and music libraries that are playable only on your computer, whatever formats they’re in

* Play all the 3D games and all the Flash games

Requirements:

* Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP, Mac OS X 10.6+ or Linux (Ubuntu 12.04).

* A computer with dual-core CPU is strongly recommended for best performance.

* Internet connection is needed to use this app.

* Productivity Pack is available for Android tablet only
