Battery Woes Got You Down? Supercharge Your Battery With Wakelock Detector [Android]

My phone’s anemic battery life really drained the fun away from an otherwise awesome phone, the Nexus 4. Overnight, it would typically lose about 30-50% of its battery charge – while idle! I would get about two or three hours of use before needing to recharge. However, my battery problems went away after using a single app: Wakelock Detector. Unlike other battery analysis apps, Wake Lock Detector provides an easy method to seek out app issues causing battery drain.

5 Awesome DIY Tablet Mounts For Bed: Vote For The Best And We’ll Build It

I love my iPad so much, I take it to bed with me – and I don’t think I’m alone (69% of British iPad owners also do, it seems). But resting it on my chest is far from ideal – I get neck cramps trying to look at the peculiarly angled screen, I certainly can’t type, and any attempt to move knocks the thing right over. Since my significant other usually doesn’t care for being face-palmed by an iPad while half asleep, it’s about time I did something about it.

Star Conflict Free-To-Play: A Multiplayer Space Sim Game You Can Go To Combat With

Free-to-play games have served most genres well. Role-playing, strategy, and first-person shooters are represented by numerous offerings that don’t cost a dime. But what about space shooters? All of the genre’s best titles are paid. Most don’t even offer multiplayer or, if they do, the community has been dead for years. There is a new kid on the block, however. His name is Star Conflict

DJ App Crossfader for iPhone Uses Movement To Mix Music

iOS has a lot going for it when it comes to mobile music creation, curation and performance. Apple’s App Store is absolutely jam packed with synths, drum machines, effects processors, DJ tools and other weird and wonderful noisemakers for your musical pleasure. One such app that produces fantastic results with relatively little skill is Crossfader, an app from DJZ that launched on the App Store at the beginning of April and has been “free for a limited time” ever since.

PhoneClean 2 Promises To Free Up Space on Your iOS Device, But Does It Work?

I have been looking for something that could clean up my iPad for me and, according to iMobie, PhoneClean is the program to do that. The free program that claims to free space on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch by deleting files that should be useless to you, such as temporary files, cached and offline files, cookies, script files, and media files that failed to sync properly. On paper, this should be quite useful, especially if you own a 8GB or 16GB iDevice. But does it really work?

7 Sticky Notes – The Most Full-Featured Sticky Notes Program [Windows]

It won’t be until you actually give digital sticky notes a try that you’ll understand how useful and effective they are. I won’t argue that physical sticky notes pressed around your desk or monitor is an unbeatable solution, but it also isn’t the prettiest, fastest, or cleanest. If you use a desktop or laptop, sticky notes are especially useful because of how many applications offer to bring them right to your desktop.

How To Root The Samsung Galaxy S4 (I9500 International Version)

So, the brand-new Galaxy S4 has just started retailing! And as most early adopters, one of the first things I wanted to do with my new Galaxy S4 was of course to root it. This post shows exactly how I’ve done it. The root exploit I used was released by XDA developer cofface. It is not a foolproof procedure, and it does involve some trial and error. The exploit itself offers two rooting methods, only one of which actually worked for me. So, caveat emptor! The good news is that I did end up with a rooted phone, and so can you.

Rethinking The Business Card

The business card is a ubiquitous sight in any business meeting. The first documented use of them can be tracked to Japan in the 15th Century. These formal royal announcements, known as ‘meishi’, were distributed amongst the local community as a sign of a potential visit. The use of cards as formal announcements was later adopted by aristocrats in 17th Century France.
