Turn your Android phone look like Android L

Image
Android L is not a phone as it sounds like. It is a newly launched Android version, i.e next version to kitkat. Many new features are added to this OS but my concern is my phone should look like Android L. Android L has extremely new design they are more colorful. One of the feature is the notification in the lock screen. So I found a beautiful app which consumes less memory and you can install in any Android device.

App name - AcDisplay

Actually in Android L version you can perform actions even from lock screen. Say if you have received a new mail then it will appear in the lock screen and you can reply, forward or perform any mail action right from the lock screen. However using this app you can launch the app from the lock screen. It just shows notification like app icon and the number of new notification. Below is the screenshot of this app.

However there are some downside like it always keep your sensor on. It means you are losing your battery backup every second. However sensors…

What apps to install in my new Moto E?

Have you got your new Moto E? Wondering which app to download first? Here are some apps that I have in my Moto E which are extremely helpful and they are not available by default. 
1. Download file manager like ES File Manager because Moto E doesn't come with a file manager. If you are comfortable with any other file manager then go for it. ES File Manager works faster in Moto E and so I didn't had a chance to install any other.   2. An Antivirus - I suggest you to go with AVG's Antivirus. I am big fan of AVG and I have them in my Windows 8 laptop too. If you know any other better Antivirus then suggest me.  3. Download Mobogenie app. It is an app store like Google Play Store. It is much better than Google Play Store because of the added option like pause your downloads. Also all the apps available in Mobogenie store are free . 4. Download the Flipkart eBook App and u will get free e-books worth Rs.1000 if you login to the app with the same username with which you have bou…

Interesting features in OnePlus one phone - inbuilt screencast, themes and much more

Image
OnePlus One features OnePlus One is a newly launched smartphone running Cyanogenmod OS. I was using this phone for a month and found several features inbuilt were interesting. So let me share some of the feature that you can't get in other Android phone by default.
Screen cast records your phone screen as video OnePlus one has got inbuilt screen cast app. With screen cast app you can video capture your phone. Many users were dying to get this app. I spent almost 2 days to get this app in my Samsung Galaxy S3. Get this app is not a easy task. You need to root your phone first, it is a long process. Screen cast is awesome with no tricky configurations. Just you need to tap on start screen cast button to video capture your phone. You can stop the screen recording from the notification bar.

Has Theme Showcase used to change font, icons and even boot logo This is really an awesome feature to customize the phone look. Generally a theme is a whole package when applied your mobile looks…

Simple Present, Simple Past and Past Participle list

This was home work to my sister daughter studying 1st grade. I thought adding -ed will make past tense but I was wrong. There is a thing called irregular verbs in grammar. It means you should not add -ed to end of verb to make it past tense. So see the list there are many irregular verb as well as regular verb. Don't worry I made this list after referring to a good grammar book. Below is the list.

How to reduce Nokia Lumia 520 heating?

Image
I bought my Nokia Lumia 520 six months back. Things were good when I purchased. Recently I am facing heating issue in my handset when I use 2G or 3G internet connection. I can't bear the heat when I was in call. It heats up more surrounding the camera. Fortunately all users having Lumia 520 are facing exactly the same issue. So there is no complete solution for this problem but I came with solution that don't completely solve the issue but it is temporary.
My dumb solution - Buy pouch First thing I did is I bought a purse-type pouch. It means even if the phone gets heat up I won't be able to sense it. I know this solution is lame. But I have no other solution and experts from Microsoft and Nokia are reporting it is usual in electronic device. Another thing I found is, restarting the mobile reduces the heating time. If your mobile gets heat up after 20 minutes of internet usage then restating your phone makes your phone heat up after 35 minutes. It is because your RAM will…

Which is the latest Nokia Lumia model?

Several Lumia phones has been launched. Users were not given with details about the latest  model. In online shopping sites I have seen still they are selling Lumia Windows 7 models. They look like latest Lumia handset but they are not. People end up purchasing the old handset and regret  for it. I have given here the latest handset with their release date.

Why should I care about it Latest phone comes with high configuration and new software. If you use old phone you may lose updates and software support. Microsoft entered mobile market with WP 7.5 which was released on 2012, February, after few month Windows Phone 8 came into picture at 2012, September. Now there is no apps or support for this WP 7.5 phones. If you look it clearly it just a matter of 7 months everything has changed. Especially in mobile market new upgrades can be seen in every quarter of the year.

Micromax Windows VS Nokia Windows - Which you will buy?

Image
It is clear that the first phone to compete Nokia Windows is Micromax Windows. Micromax came up with two Windows 8.1 phone with very low price and high specs. They were priced at Rs.6500 and Rs.9500, a low end and a high end respectively. Micromax presence in Windows platform filled the low configuration gap. Users complaint about Windows phone has only 512 MB RAM but for the same price I can buy 1 GB RAM in Android. Such things were discussed a lot and Micromax made a full stop to it.

Micromax - A high specification Windows Phone People looking for Windows Phone with good specification for low price then obviously it's for you. What I mean good specification is the 1 GB RAM for Rs.6500. This is a big threat to Android phone in this price range. I feel people may move to Micromax instead of Moto E. I wonder whether Micromax has Nokia specific apps like Nokia Here Map, Nokia Drive, Nokia Camera etc.

How to receive SMS in laptop using SIM without phone?

Image
I really need a device to receive SMS and that can be viewed in my laptop. So I thought of a device which should be a USB device and it should have a slot to insert SIM. If I plug this USB device to my laptop I should receive SMS. Below is the idea that I hold in my brain.


Google search results came up with a dumb device SIM CARD READER. This device rode me crazy. This dumb device can hold SIM card but it has no antenna to recieve any form of signals. I was decieved by the CD driver they gave along with the device. Its work is to read contacts and already present SMS. To do this we need to install software.

I didn't gave up my search. I found another solution for this problem. It is Mobvirto.

Solution - Mobvirto It is really a good technology to solve this multiple SIM issue. It is actually a cloud software. You can configure your SIM number in the cloud and you will recieve all your SMS and calls through cloud. All you need is a client software to recieve those SMS and calls. S…

Nokia Lumia 520 VS Nokia Lumia 630 - Performance & Battery Comparison

Image
I Used Lumia 630 for 4 days I am using my new Nokia Lumia 630 for past four days. I compared the specification of L520 and L630 and was not impressed. But I was proved wrong. There are many improvements in Lumia 630 which can be felt only by using it. I complaint myself about 512 MB RAM in this mobile but after using I felt it is really enough. I choose this mobile as it can accommodate two SIM.

New processor purely optimized for Windows 8.1 Nokia Lumia 630 runs Windows 8.1 out of the box. Some tweaks have been done and shortcuts like Android for Wi-FI, Bluetooth etc has been added. The new processor in Snapdragon series (Snapdragon 400) has been used in this phone. It has four cores which will improve battery performance and reduce phone heating up. The performance is up to the expectation, I won't say it is very fast but is good for the price I paid.

Nokia Lumia 520 has Snapdragon S4 processor which has been launched way back. It is dual core processor and so you might have f…

Not able to install from Windows Phone store asking to parent setup in Nokia Lumia

I am not able to install anything app from Windows Phone store. I am using Nokia Lumia 520. I came up with an error like setup with parent account. I came to know that it is related to the age given to my Live account. So I visited the Microsoft forum and it was told that people under age 18 can't download apps. Probably I might have given the age less than 18 in my Live account. I thought the solution is going to be simple, adjusting the age will solve my issue. But it didn't in my case. Then I was suggested to reset my phone and create new Live account.

Reset Windows Phone: Resetting the phone will make your phone as new as when you bought. Your apps, contacts, games and all data except system files will get erased. So backup all your data before resetting your Windows phone. To reset the phone follow below steps.

1. Open Settings
2. Open About, then open Reset your phone
