I need a new unique user ID that’s truly representative of me and at least 8 characters long, to cover all requirements of various online services that I sign up for. Obviously, “deuts” won’t cut it anymore.
It has to be extremely unique so I won’t find it a hassle anymore to be the first to grab the username everytime I sign up for a new service.
One of the selling points of an Android system is the ability to share about anything from any app. Apps that solicit sharing to, add their sharing shortcuts to the sharing window as you can see in the screenshot above.
There’s just one big problem. When the sharing options have too many services already, it becomes too crowded. You have to scroll down all the way down to share to say Twitter or Tumblr, because sharing services are alphabetically arranged. They’re not even arranged according to which service you usually use.
And yet, no settings to streamline these options. Or, I may be missing something. I’ll be glad if you can point me to the right direction.
Note: I’m currently using the LG G2 running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
A beautifully designed platform dedicated to one thing: Publishing.
Ghost is an Open Source application which allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even fun to do. It’s simple, elegant, and designed so that you can spend less time making your blog work and more time blogging.
When you open the BBM settings for Android, you’ll have the following option:
It means that BBM has to persistently run in the background in order for it to get going and receive new messages. This is in contrast to how other instant messaging apps like Viber, WhatsApp, and WeChat are operating, and is because BBM ignored to use the Google Cloud Messaging service.
This is the news you’ve been waiting for! I am thrilled to tell you that we are about to officially resume our rollout of BBM for Android and iPhone customers around the globe! In the next few hours, people will start seeing BBM in Google Play, the App Store and in select Samsung App Stores – where it will be free to download.
If you’ve been following me on Twitter and on this blog, you’ll notice that I’m an Apple fan. I’ve had so many issues with Android before, especially with the Samsung Galaxy S2, when compared to the iPhone 4.
But the LG G2 is completely a different league from the S2. That’s why when it came out, I grabbed one for myself.
One of the selling points of the LG G2 is the QuickWindow feature when used with the LG’s own QuickWindow case. Android Central defines it as:
This latest iteration serves a couple purposes. First is to protect your phone. The QuickWindow Case is a thin shell that covers most of the G2 — and it does so with minimal thickness. It also protects most of the display, save for the window area. (That’s another change from similar covers — this window is wide open, no plastic between you and the display.) And, finally, it brings a bit of functionality to the display without having to open the cover.
Whatever happened to the quick post buttons and windows for Twitter and Facebook, just like what you see in the screenshots above?
Obviously, they were removed from the notification center when iOS 7 came. I missed it because right now in order to do a quick status update to Facebook, I need to open the SLOW Facebook app, which takes forever to load before I can proceed any further. And I don’t have Siri to do it for me. Keep Reading »
I’m looking for a sleek, minimalist timer app for iPhone that keeps the display from dimming or turning off completely while in use. Of course, I need to check how much time I have left when answering test questions.
Obviously, the stock Clock app won’t cut it as the display turns off automatically after a few minutes, and I need to unlock the screen everytime I need to check the time.
