Though a picture can speak a thousand words, there’s nothing quite like taking a video. Capturing a picture is one thing, but a video can tell viewers a whole lot more, not to mention really immerse them in the memory. Social media has expanded way beyond just telling people what you’re doing or thinking of in 140 characters or less and taking pictures of where you are and what you’re eating and throwing a filter on it for a chic look. YouTube allowed people to create video blogs (vlogs) so that they could connect better, and services like Keek let users take a 36-second video of whatever they wanted to share.
There’s another way of keeping in [...]
Having a mobile device means that you can take your work with you when you step out of the house, read your latest RSS feeds when you’re on vacation, and stay connected to the music you like. Unfortunately, unless you’re very religious in syncing music between devices, chances are you’ll forget a song at home and your playlist just won’t be complete without it. You might not be able to enjoy your newest music find when you’ve left it on your computer and you completely forgot to load it up on your phone.
Imagine that scenario happening when you just have one mobile device. But, chances are, you don’t have just one gadget that you [...]
One of the things I hated the most about statistics was not the fact that I was working with numbers but that I had to deal with long and tedious equations. It’s one thing to write the equation out on paper but a completely different thing to slowly work your way through solving it. Scientific calculators are certainly handy in tackling them, but punching in numbers can be tiring. Wouldn’t it be great if you could instantly solve your handwritten equations?
MyScript Calculator is perfect for the person who wants to manually work on math without having to actually manually solve it. Write a number on the screen with your fingertip and MyScript [...]
The more powerful the phone, the more things it can do. Unfortunately, the more things a phone can do, the faster its battery will drain. You can’t expect a person to multitask and not get tired, after all. It’s easy to abuse our phones. When you have a powerful processor and a lot of storage space available, it’s pretty hard not to install and use a lot of apps at one time. Though theoretically a device can last, say, up to 12 hours, you might find it kicking the bucket at only 8. It isn’t a device malfunction, but it’s the way you’re burning through your battery power. What’s an Android user to do when she or he has to stretch the [...]
The beauty of the Internet is that you can keep updated without having to waste paper. Sure, there’s something about being able to feel a magazine or newspaper in your hands, but if you want to help Mother Earth, going paperless is the way to go. There are a number of ways to get the newest information. You can stalk certain websites like Android Authority to get your fix on the latest in Android news or keep updated on what’s happening around the world by visiting CNN. Checking these websites individually can be tiring though, and it can waste precious time. Be good to yourself and go the way of RSS feeds which allow you to check all the latest updates in one [...]
Note taking is important in everyday life. If you’re a writer, for instance, you often need to bring a small notebook so you can write new ideas when they pop up in your head. Students also need to write important notes so they can easily review their lessons. Even ordinary people use notepads to write important notices or make their grocery lists.
Note taking is very important that even phone manufacturers have created phones and tablets dedicated to taking notes. The Google Play Store also offers a variety of note taking apps that will allow you take notes on your Android device. One of those note taking apps is the Note+ Notepad app. This is a simple app that [...]

Our article on the best android apps for teachers, tutors, and educators featured apps that allow you to check your students’ attendance. Checking attendance, however, is not limited only to the classroom. You can also check attendance during events or other activities outside the classroom. If you’re a teacher and, at the same time, an event organizer for your school, it may be inconvenient to bring a separate attendance sheet for a specific class or event. Life would be easier if you could merge all your attendance sheets into one. Thankfully, we have the Attendance Tracker app to help us with our attendance-checking needs.
Unlike some attendance checker [...]
