lollipop

 

Android Kitkat brought many storage problems and headache to the App developers, users complained about this many times and the only solution is to Root your phone to be able to transfer files from the Internal storage to the external storage (microSD cards). Google finally solved this problem with Lollipop.

Now with the release of the final version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, new APIs were added to allow apps to request full access to directories owned by other providers. These APIs have been improved to offer more capabilities than before, and they do it in a very user-friendly and secure way. You'll no longer have to Root your phone to access/modify your microSD data.

 

Here's what Google Developers said about lollipop shared storage devices:

 

Richer access to secondary shared storage devices
In KitKat we introduced APIs that let apps read/write file in app-specific directories on secondary storage devices, such as SD cards.
We heard loud and clear that developers wanted richer access beyond these directories, so in Lollipop we added the new ACTION_OPEN_DOCUMENT_TREE intent.
Apps can launch this intent to pick and return a directory from any supported DocumentProvider, including any of the shared storage supported by the device.
Apps can then create, update, and delete files and directories anywhere under the picked tree without any additional user interaction. Just like the other document intents, apps can persist this access across reboots.
This gives apps broad, powerful access to manage files while still involving the user in the initial selection process.
Users may choose to give your app access to a narrow directory like "My Vacation Photos," or they could pick the top-level of an entire SD card; the choice is theirs.

Samsung has now officially developed and patented the graphene ball tech which makes lithium-ion cells used in smartphones last a lot longer. As per reports, the utilization of graphene ball can not only make li-ion batteries last up to 45% longer, but it can also make the cells take charge up to five-times faster than before! To put that in a real world scenario, consider the fact that the Galaxy S8's 3,000mAh li-ion battery takes roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes to get fully charged from 0%-100%, but with graphene ball, it would take about 15 - 20 minutes or less to do the same! If that's not incredible, then we don't what is!


Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) was the division responsible for developing the technology, but that's no surprise since the division has been behind developing breakthrough tech for quite a while now. Another one of its recent successes include introduction of the cadmium-free Quantum Dot display tech used in Samsung QLED TVs. Does this mean that we will see the Galaxy S9 debut with unbelievably fast recharge times and incredible battery life? Not really! It's just a patent and there's no guarantee that grapheme ball will be ready by the time Samsung goes into mass production with the Galaxy S9.

Google has released a free Motion Stills app that allows any Android phone with a built-in gyroscope that runs Android 5.1 or higher access to the latest augmented reality technology. Google's latest app was built with editing videos and GIFS in mind. It allows the user to capture short videos and change them into stunning cinemagraphs or sweeping cinematic pans using their advanced rendering and stabilization technology. Now you can combine AR stickers and clips into movies or create looping GIFS that you can easily share with your friends.


Not Just For Pixel 2


Google Pixel 2 owners have already been enjoying adding a host of fun AR stickers, including R2-D2 and Stranger Things characters, into the real world using the device's built-in ARCore technology. Pixel 2 owners with the Android Oreo 8.1 update received early access to Google's library of AR stickers since December last year.

This is no longer an exclusive club of AR aficionados as Google's Motion Still app is opening the market by making it easier to access. The latest version of the Motion Stills app brings all the fun of these AR stickers to a decent cross section of Android devices, making it easy for anyone to insert 3D objects into the surroundings before recording.


Motion Still Features


With Motion Still, you can:


        Use the AR mode to add fun characters to your surroundings.

        Create a short, 3 second clip with a simple tap of your screen.

        Condense up to a minute of video into a short clip by using the Fast Forward mode.

        Combine clips to create movies with a simple swipe to the right.

        Share your Motion Stills as short videos or cool looping GIF's directly with your friends.


The AR functionality is by far the most appealing feature of the app. Using this function you can stick an animated 3D object on any surface, even if it is moving. You can then record a video or GIF of the animated character's actions in the real world and share your Motion Stills clip directly with your friends. Sounds pretty awesome!


How Does the App Work?


You can get into the finer technical details of the app on Google Research's blog but the short explanation is that the app will track your phone's 3D rotation and location in relation to the ground or any flat surface that is in view. With this data, it is able to insert a 3D object into your real world surroundings and will scale up and down proportionally as you move closer or further from the AR character. This could be implemented in many ways and would also making playing at River Belle casino and any other gaming site so much more interactive.


Accessing AR Technology is Becoming Easier


Google is paving the way in terms of making the wonders of augmented reality technology more accessible to a wider audience. You'll probably have noticed that some of the best and most recent apps in the augmented reality category are confined almost exclusively to more advanced phones that run the latest operating software. So it's a great thing that Google is trying to grow the market by making these AR features available on any Android device that runs Android 5.1 or higher. Of course, the hope is that these new users will enjoy the taste of AR so much that they'll be more inclined to upgrade to the Pixel 2 which comes standard with the more advanced ARCore tech.



The Ultimate Root Checker Allows users to check root access on their devices by just tapping on Check Root. The Root Results are then presented back in rich visual representation.

 


Rooting is the Android equivalent of jailbreaking, a means of unlocking the operating system so you can install unapproved apps, update the OS, replace the firmware, overclock or underclock the processor, customize just about anything.

The use of VPN or proxy servers is quite common as people around the world often use it to either get access to the services of Netflix or just to watch programs that would otherwise be locked in their region. Netflix is determined to stop this in hopes of limiting its users to only the services and shows that are offered in their respective geographical locations.


Netflix offers its services across 190 nations now and although it is good news for the company and its viewers, it also makes things extremely complicated. If the media rights to certain content are owned by a company in Australia, it is probably owned by a completely different company in the UK. This is what creates a lot of problem with licensing and thus the library of content for Netflix differs with the particular country it is providing its services to.


We imagine that Netflix is under pressure from the local media companies to limit user access unless they have already paid for broadcasting rights. Netflix has assured its users officially, that over the course of time, they will be able to minimize the gaps in between global content across several countries.


If you are still interested in seeing shows that are locked in your area, then we might have good news for you. Rumor has it that the new content restriction measures taken by Netflix works by detecting the IP address of the user. Therefore, it might be possible to still watch those locked shows if you just change your IP address through VPN. How well it works is debatable though.



WiFi

 

Having an Internet access while flying is important to stay online while flying, either for work or just entertainment. Many major airlines now offer internet access to their passengers through an on-board Wi-Fi connection. Data is delivered via satellites or from ground-based cellular antennas beaming 3G/4G airwaves at the sky. However, its very expensive, starting from $30 per flight.

 

To make things easy, Here is a list of Airlines with free Wi-Fi internet access on their flights:

 

• Norwegian Airlines: has high-speed broadband on flights within Europe. The service is available on the company's Boeing 737-800 aircrafts.
• JetBlue: has all of its Airbus 321s and most of its A320 planes equipped with Wi-Fi gear. There's a catch, however. The free access option imposes restrictions on your connection. To go online at full speed, you'll have to buy a pass.
• Hongkong Airlines: has free Wi-Fi on its Airbus A330-200 aircraft operating from London to Hong Kong. The connection speed, however, is limited for those using a free pass.
• Air China: free Wi-Fi service comes with a catch. Passengers cannot connect to it from their smartphones as these are not allowed to be on during flights. Tablets and laptops, on the other hand, are A-OK.
• Nok Air: provides free Wi-Fi internet access on domestic flights throughout Thailand. The service is only available on two aircrafts, however.
