Yu Yureka Black and White Back Cover

The above back cover is actually a full black cover and the user has drawn the white strips. It looks beautiful and reminds me zebra.

The above image is not a physical cover but a design made in photoshop. The user who created this back cover design is Rahul. Rahul works in bike sticker shop and he is actively working on this design to make it physical. It seems he almost completed the base design, the black texture.

Mi Band:
Price - Rs.999Release date - April 2015Pros - Waterproof,  affordable price, compatible with iOS and AndroidCons - Mi Fit app needs more improvement  Mi Band - Is it a watch?

When I opened the Mi Band box, I thought it will be a watch. But there was only a rubber strap and dongle. The dongle is the actual device and doesn't have any display. The dongle's chip features accelerometer and Bluetooth. The strap will hold this dongle. There are several colors and designs in straps, I got the black one. The dongle part of Mi Band has three lights to indicate goal.

Mi Band app To use this band you need to download Mi Fit app. All the data collected by Mi Band can be seen in the Mi Fit app. Without this app the band is not complete.

How to send pics and videos from Android phone to iPhone?

I am not able to receive picture or videos sent from Android phone in my iPhone. So I found some apps using which we can transfer files between Android and iOS system

Apps to share files between Android and iPhone:WhatsApp - Sounds crazy but works great if you have unlimited Internet connectivity.Shareit app - Popular app for sharing files. This app transfer files faster than bluetooth connection.Xender app - Files, pictures, music, videos, even apps can be shared. Has group sharing feature. Zapya - Cross-platform sharing for Android, iOS devices, WP & PC.
How to use: You need to install above mentioned app in both Android and iPhone. Instruction will differ for each app. I think except WhatsApp all the app uses wi-fi direct. Not sure but you don't need Internet to transfer files while using apps other than WhatsApp.

Cable is longer than the Original Cable ( 1.5mtrs ) Decent packing. Nothing fancy...
