I started customizing my smartphone ever since I first owned one. I think that Android launchers, icon packs, and widgets are a core of Android ecosystem. I’m sure that even if you are not a power user, you still have at least one widget on your home screen. Even my grandpa, with his Galaxy S4, has a battery widget on his home screen, and he absolutely loves it!
As you may know, Android devices are really customizable and you can change many aspects of the phone. One of the basic things you can change is your wallpaper. We usually pick wallpapers that we like or that represent us.
None of the wallpapers from this article are ours. The credit goes to the original creators! We hope that this article will help someone to find their new favorite wallpaper!
Even though email is technically really old service we still need it. You can sign up to most of the social media websites and subscribe to your favorite blog with it. But because we use our smartphones more and more companies and developers started working on mail apps so we could check our emails almost everywhere we are.
I’m using Google Calendar on daily bases. I have all of my classes schedule so I never miss one. This is not Google Calendar review but I can easily say that it’s one of my favorites calendar apps. Since I’m fan of material design and everything sync to other devices, it have just enough features for me.
With the latest update, Google Calendar, adds option for connecting to Google Fit. Before this integration we already have an option for setting up an activity or as Google is calling it ‘Goal’. You can choose different goals like exercise (which is not new but because of new Google Fit integration it works even better), build a skill, family and friends, me time and organize my life.
Have you ever heard of something called a VPN? VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. You can do different things using VPN and I’m going to explain and show two most common ways why people use VPN.
Even if a Virtual Private Network sounds strange and complicated, there are tons of apps on the Google Play Store that will activate a Virtual Private Network by just tapping a button. Over the years I found and tried out many different apps that allowed me to use VPN. Even though almost all of them have a premium option, that I never felt like I needed it. Some of them required an account, and some of them were just filled with ads, so I was really struggling to find the best VPN app.
As someone who likes to freshen up his device with new wallpapers, I’ve been ever on the lookout for the perfect wallpaper app. Some apps were hard to use, others had a poor selection, and still others bombarded me with ads. I had resorted to using a more archaic method of changing my wallpaper. I would find wallpapers online, download them, then set them manually. It wasn’t until recently that I heard again about this free app called Backdrops, an app that I had used in ages past, but had found extremely buggy.
Storage on our devices is precious to us. Typically, we pay more if we want a phone with extra storage, sometimes even more than a couple hundred for the bigger storage version of the same phone. In Slovenia, the country where I live, there’s usually just the model with less storage, with no option for an upgrade.
Over a year ago, Google announced yet another round of Nexus devices, which launched with the most current version of Android at that time: Marshmallow. Unfortunately, we didn’t know it, but those would be the last of the Nexuses. A year later, Google would unveil two new smartphones with a new brand-name: Pixel.
