Nice & Awesome Android tips and tricks

If you use a smartphone, chances are it’s an Android.

Not only are there multiple phone makers that embrace the operating system – including the likes of Samsung, HTC, LG, Moto, Sony, and so on – but it’s by far the world’s no. 1 mobile platform with a whopping 88 percent market share, according to Strategy Analytics.

As with most of your gadgets, however, you’re probably only scratching the surface of what your ‘droid can do.  And so we’ve compiled a list of five useful tips and tricks to help you get more out of your device.

Note: Most of these will work with all makes and models — running the newest version, Nougat, or previous versions like Marshmallow, Lollipop, or KitKat — but some of the following step-by-step instructions may vary a bit depending on which smartphone you own.

At home? Have your phone automatically unlock

It’s a necessary evil, but we all know it’s a pain to type in a PIN or passcode, draw a pattern or use a thumbprint to unlock your phone each and every time. After all, if it’s lost or stolen, we don’t want our info falling into the wrong hands.

But you shouldn’t have to do this at home, right? Good news: Built into Android is a “Smart Lock” feature. Enabling it means when you’re at home – or another location of your choice – your phone won’t be locked.

Go to Settings > Security (or Secure lock settings) > Smart Lock > Trusted places, and then type in the address where you don’t want to be locked out of your phone. Alternatively, let your phone identify your current location on a map.

There are other “smart lock” settings, too, like when it’s in your hand or in your pocket, when you’re near another device (like a Bluetooth watch), and more.

Plug in a mouse or keyboard. Or run Android on a PC

Don’t try this with an iPhone.

Some Android applications simply work better with a mouse (including productivity-killing strategy and role-playing games), and you can indeed plug in a USB mouse into your Android phone and it’ll work right away. Yes, whether it’s microUSB or USB Type-C, you’ll immediately see the little cursor on your screen. You could also use a Bluetooth enabled mouse. Keyboards work, too, by the way.

On the flipside, you can run Android on your computer at home or at the office. Simply install the free BlueStacks emulator on your PC or Mac, and you can play Clash Royale as if it were on your phone.

Download Google Maps directions for offline use

When you’re navigating unfamiliar roads, chances are you launch Google Maps on your Android. But using this app eats up data – and if you’re roaming in another country, you might come home to a surprise on your mobile phone bill.

While it’s not widely known, Google Maps now lets you download and use Google Maps on your device, without using up any data.

To do so, when you’re in a free Wi-Fi hotspot, type a destination into the search window and the app will pull up an overhead map. Now tap the three lines in the top left of the screen to open some options, one of which will be “Offline areas.” Tap this and select to download the map to your device, but be aware it will take up some storage (Google Maps will tell you how much).

There’s a hidden game.

Bored at work? In line at the supermarket? Need to keep the kids entertained? Android has a hidden video game.

Go to Settings > System > About Phone (or Software info), and when you see the words “Android version,” tap on it multiple times and you’ll see a logo for Nougat or Marshmallow. Tap a few times again and now press and hold on the screen. A secret minigame will appear.

Tap the triangle to start. See how long you can keep the Android character alive by tapping the screen to jump, and without hitting any obstacles. It’s not as easy as it looks!

Spit-screen mode

Once reserved only for high-end Samsung devices, Android Nougat offers a split-screen mode, natively, and it works like a charm. As the name suggests, this split-screen feature lets you view and/or access two different apps on the screen at the same time.

To use it, launch an app and then press and hold the Recent Apps button (usually to the left or right of the Home button). This will snap your open app onto the top of the screen, and allow you to open another app on the bottom. Or turn your phone sideways, for a landscape view, to access the side-by-side apps.

For example, you can watch a movie while flicking through some emails. Or play a podcast while browsing the web in another window.

Not every app works with split-screen, but many of them do.

And a few more tips.

To quickly access some Settings and Notifications, swipe one finger down from the very top of your phone (start above the screen). To access many more Settings and options, use two fingers to swipe down instead. Cool, no?
Hopefully you’re using your voice to access info while on the go, as it’s super easy, fast, and convenient. To enable the “OK Google” feature, tap on the Google app from within your Google folder (or on your home screen), and then tap the top left Options tab (three horizontal lines) and under Settings, tap Voice and then enable “OK Google” detection from any screen. Now you can simply say “OK Google,” followed by a command or question tied to a web search, destination address, texting a contact, and more.
To take a screenshot of a website, message, or anything else, Android users can simply press the power and volume-down buttons at the same time. The screen will flash white, you’ll hear a camera shutter sound, and the image be saved in your photo gallery. Some phones, like Samsung devices, let you slide the side of your hand (left or right) to quickly screen grab what you’re looking at.

WhatsApp Features Revealed In iOS Beta

WhatsApp beta for iOS has revealed a string of new features for the popular communication app. In December, some of these features were leaked by WABetaInfo, a Twitter account known for regularly leaking information related to WhatsApp updates.

While the company hasn’t confirmed when the official update will be out, the changelog of the Beta version mentions features such as live location tracking, which tracks the physical location of all participants of a WhatsApp group.

Here are five features expected to roll out in the official WhatsApp update.

Edit

This new feature will allow users to edit a sent message, but only if it hasn’t already been read. Messaging services such as BBM and Telegraph already have similar options available.

Recall

Recalling sent messages might be the longest-waited feature for WhatsApp users. If you have ever sent a message using the app and then regretted doing so, this feature would help you out. But just like the edit option, this will only work if the recipient hasn’t already read the message.

Live location tracking

This one seems a little different from previously rumored features of the app. Live location tracking will let you know the location of members in a WhatsApp group. The feature will be disabled by default and users will need to enable it in the WhatsApp settings menu.

Users can also enable the feature for a limited time — 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes or indefinitely.

Reply to status messages

Up till now, other users could see your status message but couldn’t reply to it. With the new update, users will able to respond directly to WhatsApp status messages as well.

Contact option

When you shake your device in middle of a chat, you will see a Contact Us option, which will likely let users report spam directly to WhatsApp.

How to use your phone to lose weight

Sarah Tew/CNET

Every January the treadmills and ellipticals are filled with eager gym-goers. Like clockwork, however, after a couple of weeks the gym returns to its normal state of isolation.

Resolutions are hard to keep and living a healthy lifestyle can be even harder. With the demands of work, raising a family and other obstacles we are met with, it’s just too much of a hassle for most people to count calories, make healthy food choices and get to the gym a couple of times a week.

Luckily, tech makes it easier than ever to stick with your fitness goals. From goal-specific apps to wearable devices, here are some of the best tools to help you lose weigh and maintain a healthy lifestyle:

The best fitness apps

There are many (and I mean many) apps for iOS and Android that turn any phone or tablet into a personal trainer that can help you shed those extra pounds.

But first, let’s talk food. There’s an old saying: perfect abs aren’t made in the gym, but are cooked up in the kitchen. Lifting weights and cardio are important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but eating right is just as, if not more, beneficial as working out.

Calorie-tracking apps

There are hundreds of food-tracking apps out there, but one of my favorites is MyFitnessPal, an app that simplifies the process of counting calories. MyFitnessPal is free and available on iOS, Android and even Windows Phone.

You’ll start by telling the app about your weight, goal weight, gender, height, birth date and daily activity level. Then, the app will calculate how many calories you should eat each day.

Now it’s time to put in the work and log your meals. Food can be entered in manually, chosen from a user-generated catalog of more than five million items or even scanned with your smartphone’s camera. You can even set reminders to ensure that you never miss logging a meal. The app can also connect with many popular fitness trackers from Fitbit, Garmin, Withings and others.

MyFitnessPal is just one of the many calorie-tracking applications available for mobile devices. I’ve been using the app for years and am accustomed to its interface, which is why I recommend it. One of my colleagues has been a loyal Lose It! user for years. The free version for both apps offer similar features, although Lose It does include a cool feature that can analyze a photo and automatically log the meal.
