Spice up your Hangouts chats with stickers using this app and Xposed mod

by: J. Angelo RacomaMay 19, 2014

An extension of the usual IP-based chatting service, stickers have grown in popularity among mobile users, especially with the rise of cross-platform apps like LINE and Viber and even Facebook Messenger. Google’s own Hangouts service was actually late in the game, only introducing stickers in late February this year in its iOS release.

Users could only send the usual emoticons and smileys, but not the bigger, more interesting, stickers. An app, Stickers for Hangouts, addresses this deficiency by providing a means for [...]

Can’t wait for Pressy? Free QuickClick app gives you custom volume button actions

by: J. Angelo RacomaMay 18, 2014

Extra buttons? Why not use the ones you already have?

On popular crowd-funding platforms today are a couple of interesting smartphone add-on accessories. On Kickstarter, we have Pressy, which plugs into the phone’s 3.5mm audio jack and acts as an extra button.

The key functionality in these accessories is the easy access to functions through button-press shortcuts. For instance, a series or combination of button presses could turn on your torch or launch the SMS app, and so forth.
