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.

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 [...]

So, you bought yourself a new device the other day, let’s say, an Android phone. You’ve worked day in, day out just to save up for that gadget. When you finally got it, you followed all the things you should do to take good care of the phone. But one day, you’ve noticed that the battery drains awfully faster than in the other day and you weren’t even playing games on it. What gives?
I’m sure some of you have been in this kind of situation and you ask yourself, “Did I get the right gadget? What if I bought blah blah instead? Maybe its battery would have lasted longer than this.” Battery life is just one of the factors someone [...]
The beauty of newer smartphones is that you don’t need to cramp your fingers by navigating menus by physical buttons. Just use your fingers to swipe and tap and you can breeze through the various functions of your phone. There are days, however, where you feel so worn out from the week that don’t want to expend more energy than you need to. Don’t you just wish you could control your phone with your mind?
Technology hasn’t gotten that far yet, but there’s definitely an app that will help you launch certain applications when you don’t want to swipe and tap. Developed by Project Trinity, Voice Shortcuts Launcher doesn’t [...]
Since Android devices have become such vital parts of our lives, we’ve gotten so used to storing delicate information such as contact details, important e-mails, photos and a whole lot more.
There are options to have your phone request a passcode every time you need to unlock your device, but that can be such a waste of time. What if you need to call someone right away? You’d have to waste precious seconds punching in the combination when you’re in a hurry or when there’s no one around to protect your information from. You might get so fed up that you’d just want to disable the passcode, but then you’d put yourself and your phone at [...]
When you hear the name ClockworkMod, you instantly associate it with the custom recovery that almost all Android phones are using. Though ClockworkMod Recovery is certainly very handy, that isn’t the only thing Koushik Dutta, also known as ClockworkMod, has contributed to the Android community. ROM Manager, Bionic Recovery Bootstrap, ClockworkMod Tether (no root), and DeskSMS are just some of the apps he’s offering on the Google Play Store.

Do you remember being a kid, just bursting with questions? “Why is the sky blue?” “Why is water clear?” “How do airplanes stay in the sky?” I was so full of questions that it annoyed my parents.
Sure, we can be fed answers through a number of media — our school teachers, Google, Wikipedia — but are these answers the right ones? Sometimes, you might have a question that no one can easily answer. Maybe because no one’s put the information up on the Internet yet or because people have never asked that question. Regardless of the reason, if you have a question, you deserve an answer.
Today we’ll be [...]
