Here’s some of my first thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy S4 that was just announced officially.
I get a lot of questions on how to transfer files between two Android smartphones or tablets.
Without a doubt, Google Maps and Navigation is probably the best maps/GPS/navigation software in the U.S. and other countries that support Google Navigation. Well, that changes as soon as you step outside the U.S. as I found out.
Couple weeks ago when I was planning my trip to Thailand, I searched all over the internet and wondered if I was going to be able to get 3G data working (since Thailand doesn’t have 4G LTE yet) while I stayed for couple weeks.
For those of you with one of the latest Android smartphones/tablets that have NFC but cannot use Google Wallet (such as any AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon phones), here’s how to install Google Wallet.
I’ve been traveling to Asia often lately and found that when I am in countries like South Korea or Thailand (where I am right now), I found that you cannot access certain apps on the Play Store. Now, this can become a headache especially when I can’t get apps like Google Voice, which I need to keep in contact with my friends and voice messages for my phone number in the U.S. Also, I do enjoy listening to music using Pandora app or watching movies with Netflix when I am traveling outside the U.S.
For those of you who want to run your favorite apps in Phone mode or Tablet mode (such as Netflix shown above running in tablet mode with a Galaxy S3), scale fonts, keep screen ON, or even change language on “app basis”, you can do it easily on “any” rooted Android smartphone or tablet device running Android 4.0.3 or higher. (ICS and Jelly Bean)
What’s hot around town right now? Of course, it’s the PIE Control!
If you are running the latest ParanoidAndroid ROM, you can get PIE Control, a new way of accessing your home buttons.
Those of you who want to take a small peek into the future of Android 4.2, you can now get GoogleApps (GAPPS) 4.2 for your Jelly Bean ROM.
