Has anyone tried the Nox App Player (Android Emulator for Windows / Mac)?

July 26, 2017

I discovered Nox App Player on FreewareFiles and it has me interested; however, if anyone out there has installed this, I would be interested in knowing what their experience was. The Nox App Player is a 277MB install and serves as an Android Emulator. What that means is, if you install Nox App Player you can install and run Android apps on your Windows based computer through the emulator.

Although there are several programs providing an Android environment on PC, it is difficult to get a complete Android experience using the traditional emulators. However, Nox App Player provides an interface that looks like an actual Android device in all ways. The intuitive emulator is based on Android 4.4.2 and compatible with both AMD and x86 systems.

Protect Your Android Apps From Unwanted Access

April 18, 2016

… and, MORE GREAT GEEK SQUEAK STUFF (#2016-016)

Recently I have been paying special attention to folks who have Android smartphones (and tablets) and I am noticing that the majority do not have their phones locked down (either with a pin code or pattern lock). I highly recommend that you get into the security setting on your devices and lock them down; preferably, with a pin code so that when your phone is turned “on” or awakened out of its’ sleep mode, a code (that you pre-designate) is required to access and operate the phone. You will not realize the importance of this “slight” inconvenience, until your phone is misplaced.

To take this a step further, there are apps available that allow you pass code protect individual apps to prevent apps from being launched on your phone (or tablet) in the event you hand off the device to someone else, such as your kids. An app locker that I have been testing out is called Avira Applock+. What I like about Applock+ is that it is very easy to setup; and, it specifically focuses on securing access to your apps (and not a bunch of other stuff is bundled with it). An included powerful feature in the FREE version is the unlimited remote device management, where you can remotely lock and unlock apps on your managed phones (as many as you like!) from Avira Online Essentials – your online dashboard.

Just like on Android and iPhone, you’ll get the following:

  • Reminders stick around – If a reminder isn’t completed, it will appear at the top of your calendar until you mark it done.
  • Reminders work across Google – Reminders you create in Inbox, Keep, and the Google app will also show in Google Calendar.
  • Reminders sync with mobile – Reminders created in mobile show up on the web and vice versa. So you can stay on track from just about anywhere.

An Online Mobile Phone Emulator (try before you buy)

March 21, 2010

Buying a mobile phone is one of those costly decision-making processes that will either make you or break you. If you are not prepared (and educated) you could ultimately end up in a contract situation with a carrier for a 2 year period with a phone you ultimately are not satisfied with. Personally, I am no expert when it comes to mobile phones; however, it is in my opinion, a lock in for a 2 year period of time, with a phone being used as bait, just does not sound too good to me (from the bargaining standpoint).

One thing I do know about mobile phones is that today they are a member of the information technology family (as a form of an electronic medium) and as with any member of that family you have to do your homework in order to educate yourself and bring yourself up to speed.

Now the beauty of today’s internet is that you can access information on just about everything, including mobile phones. The real beauty though is that today’s internet is evolving into a virtual world (with interactive content) that in essence allows you to manipulate and animate from your chair using a web browser. Once such instance of this technology is a web site called TryPhone.

TryPhone is an online interactive (virtual) web site that emulates various models of mobile phones and gives you the ability to actually take them for a test drive (for free). You can also do “side-by-side” comparisons, watch demos, etc…  Remember educate yourself, prior to buying any electronics, AND TryPhone is one way to help educate yourself about mobile phones.  TryPhone is currently in beta (the testing stage).

TryPhone gives you the ability to try before you buy. Use our fully interactive online virtual handsets to test-drive mobile devices, applications, content and services, as well as watch demos – right from the comfort and convenience of your own computer. No pressure, no salespeople, no product uncertainty and no features you don’t understand. Try it, then go buy it… on your terms.
