In this article we will try to go through certain tips and tricks useful in day to day activities of the users while using theWhatsApp:

WhatsApp-Tricks-and-Tips

  • Get connected to WhatsApp without any phone number: User needs to get connected to Internet via Wi-Fi or modem and get WhatsApp installed in the smartphone. For installation user needs to  visit the official site of WhatsApp and click the application to get it downloaded. Once the app gets downloaded it gives the welcome screen, just click the “Agree to the terms” and then user would be asked to provide the phone number so user needs to type their phone number and click OK. In the next 10-15 minutes the verification process will begin, in the meantime the downloaded application gives a text message in this user needs to click the “call me to confirm” and user gets a call from WhatsApp followed by a verification code on the phone number that they provided. Type this verification code in the downloaded application’s screen and soon the WhatsApp would be activated on the smartphone without any phone number.
  • Change your WhatsApp phone number: Most of the time the Phone number synced with the WhatsApp is seen by other users and suppose if user is using multiple phone numbers then user will have to uninstall and reinstall their WhatsApp to change the synchronized phone number. An easy way to change the synchronization of the WhatsApp number is present in the WhatsApp application : Go to ‘Settings’ then ‘Account’ then ‘Change number on your WhatsApp’, here user would need to type their new phone number in the first field and then in the lower field add the old phone number and click Done. The new phone number needs to be validated and all the chat history and WhatsApp data get transferred to the new phone number as this number has now been synchronized to WhatsApp. User needs to understand that the device is same and only the phone number has been changed in this case.
  • Need to Send files that are not officially supported by Android: WhatsApp has some limitation to its file sharing capability. RAR, ZIP, PDFs, .EXE, APKs, Word files and the files which are more than 15MB cannot be shared through WhatsApp. Users need not worry, now they can download the CloudSend app and upload the required file through this app then copy the link and send it across to the person via WhatsApp. When recipient clicks on the link they will be able to download the file without any restrictions.
  • Stop Automatic media download in WhatsApp: Media files like images, videos, audio files get downloaded automatically in WhatsApp previously users needed the WhatsApp plus application to stop this download. However, now WhatsApp has included this feature in its configuration settings and users can choose whichever images or videos they want to download hence controlling the overall space in the device.
  • Users can create Fake WhatsApp Conversation: There is an application “Whatsaid – Whatsapp Prank 1.2″, users can download this from http://whatsaid-whatsapp-prank.soft112.com/. Users can start fake conversation using a different display picture, last seen and even personal settings. Now, this app is mostly used by celebrities, common users can use this fake conversation just as a prank.
  • Disabling the “Last Seen” time stamp: WhatsApp’s feature of Last seen timing is helpful to know when the friend was online however it can also be frustrating as it gives away the personal information of the user and hence is a threat to user’s privacy. Now users can learn the trick of disabling the Last seen time stamp. User just needs to go in WhatsApp settings : Click on Account; Click the ‘Last seen’ button and make the necessary changes. This feature is available both in iOS as well as Android users and user can easily disable the “Last seen” time stamp however if user is online it will still show up.
  • Locking of WhatsApp: Yes locking of the WhatsApp is possible. For Android users they can download the “Messenger and Chat Lock” from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.whatsapplock. For iPhone users they can download “Password for WhatsApp” from http://www.app-pocket.com/app/password-for-whatsapp/ and for Blacberry users “Lock for WhatsApp Messenger” can be downloaded from https://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/27179877/?countrycode=IN&lang=en.
  • Managing the notification sounds: The sounds and notifications especially from the Group chats can be frustrating hence user can manage the notification and the message sounds by going to Settings and then Notifications and turn off the sound and notifications from group chats.
  • Archiving all chats: Basically this helps users to back up and restore all the chats. WhatsApp has auto backup facility and users can also create manual backups for their WhatsApp chats. In case user changes the device or uninstalls the WhatsApp then WhatsApp restores the chat information automatically. For manual backup and restoration users need to follow these steps: In case of Apple iOS, users need to Go to Settings then Chat Settings then Chat Backup then click Backup. In case of Android : users need to Go to Settings then Chat settings and then click Backup chats. Android users need to make a note that this method will only take back up of the chats and for the media they will need to use a File manager to backup the media files in either of these Sdcard/WhatsApp/Media in their phones. On the contrary one more easier method for backup and restoration would be by using the Google Drive.
  • Users can use WhatsApp from their computer using a rooted Android phone: This is done by “over the air transfer of messages” from user’s rooted Android phone to a Computer running a modern browser like Chrome. Basically here user would need to Install WhatsAir app in their Android device, then grant it root permission. Please note that the Android phone is connected to the network of the computer through Wi-Fi. Click the start button and the WhatsAir app generates a password and gives a address which needs to be typed in the browser of the computer. This works fine with Chrome browser in the computer, the browser page will ask for a password and user needs to type the same password which the Android phone’s WhatsAir app had given while installation. After authentication process the Computer gets connected to the WhatsApp. Users need to understand that this connection stays till the web browser tab is closed or the stop button in app is clicked. Users can enjoy the WhatsApp messages from their Phone to computer and the replies would promptly go through Computer to phone.


LG G Flex2 With 5.5-Inch

The LG G Flex2, launched in India last month, has been made available to buy in the country on Thursday. The curved display smartphone is priced at Rs. 54,990, and was first globally introduced at CES 2015.

LG-G-Flex2-5.5-Inch-Display

To recall, the LG G Flex2 when announced back in January, was the first smartphone to run Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 (a 64-bit octa-core SoC). It is coupled with the Adreno 430 GPU and 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The single-SIM smartphone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and features a 5.5-inch full-HD curved P-OLED display with a 1080×1920 pixels resolution and a 403ppi pixel density.

The LG G Flex2’s display has a 700mm-radius curvature, while the back is slightly sharper with a 650mm-radius curvature for grip. LG says the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 has been toughened approximately 20 percent from the previous generation with the firm’s own special chemical treatment technology – LG calls this Dura-Guard glass. The whole phone is supposedly 30 percent more durable than the original.

The company has also improved upon the ‘Self Healing’ back from the original LG G Flex, and it will now get healed within 10 seconds at room temperature – significantly lower than the last-generation’s three minutes.

The LG G Flex2 sports a rear 13.0-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS+), dual-LED two-tone flash, and laser-guided autofocus just like the LG G3. It sports a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. The G Flex2 will come in 16GB and 32GB storage variants that are expandable via microSD card.

Connectivity options on the LG G Flex2 include 4G LTE-A with tri-band carrier aggregation, HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth Smart Ready (Apt-X) 4.1, NFC, SlimPort, GPS/ A-GPS, GLONASS, and USB 2.0. The device measures in at 149.1×75.3×7.1 – 9.4mm, and weighs 152 grams. The curved handset packs a curved embedded 3000mAh non-removable battery.

The other features include things like a simple hand ‘Gesture Shot’ recognisable from up to 1.5 metres away; ‘Gesture View’ to check last clicked shot; ‘Glance View’ to swipe down for notifications even when the screen is off, and ‘Fast Charging’ – which can charge the battery up to 50 percent in under 40 minutes. The smartphone is available in Titan Silver/16GB variant for now.

WWE 2K Game For iOS Android Free Download

We told you a few weeks ago how WWE 2K was set to be released in spring and today that has happened, with the wrestling game is available to download for both iOS on the App Store and Android on Google Play. You’ll need to hand over $7.99 in order to play it, but there’s plenty to get your teeth into once you have.

WWE-2K-Game-For-iOS-Android-Free-Download

Featuring some of the biggest names in past and present wrestling, WWE 2K allows gamers to play as the likes of Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Sting, Triple H, Undertaker, Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Bray Wyatt. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy then you can even create your own custom character too. Just try and come up with a good name when you do!

In a press statement, Visual Concepts president Greg Thomas said that “as the first simulation-based WWE video game for mobile devices, WWE 2K provides an opportunity to experience virtual WWE action anywhere and at any time.” Notice the word ‘simulation’ in there? WWE 2K is the closest thing to a real wrestling game you’re going to find on iOS and Android, which is another reason that $8 price tag shouldn’t put you off in a day and age where developers have conditioned us to expect games to be free with in-app purchases.

Available for both tablets and smartphones, WWE 2K features a career mode that is likely to be the game’s main focus point for most players. Taking your favorite character, or indeed a personally created one, is the kind of thing we used to love about console wrestling games as we grew up. Being able to do it on a tablet or smartphone is just awesome.

Download WWE 2K from the App Store or Google Play Store today. Again, it’s $7.99.

(Download: WWE 2K for iOS / Android)

Rooting Samsung Galaxy S6 Will Break Samsung Pay Functionality

Not long after the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, it has been confirmed that rooting the devices in order to perform further customization and development will result in the breaking of the yet-to-be-launched Samsung Pay mobile payments functionality, which is being sold as a key feature of the S6.

Samsung-Galaxy-Pay

Samsung Pay and the KNOX data security features require the device to be unrooted in order for their respective features to work as intended. By rooting the devices in order to perform further customization and development, the security integrity of both programs is compromised and are rendered useless.

Samsung Pay works through the February acquisition of Loop Pay and its magnetic stripe transfer technology. The technology allows the phone to be used in standard swipe-only card readers by touching the phone to the reader, which the reader interprets as a full card swipe.

This is said to be more compatible for current merchants than Apple Pay and Google Wallet, since those require the availability of more expensive NFC-compatible card readers and it’s estimated that only 300,000 storefronts are equipped to support NFC-based payments in the US.

Samsung Pay is set to launch later this Summer and counts MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, and U.S. Bank as its initial partners in the program with further expansion in the future.

Nokia Coneccting Android phones in 2016

Nokia’s Microsoft-induced restrictions on producing phones, and using its brand on them, will expire next year, and the Finnish communications juggernaut already hinted it will be back in the mobile industry with a vengeance then.

Nokia-exec-our-Android-phones-coming-in-2016-China

It turns out, as per the President of Nokia China, that the company is actually going to fulfil many fanboys’ dreams, and will start churning out Android smartphones, likely manufactured in Sichuan, where Nokia’s R&D center will be relocated for good as well.

We know that Nokia toyed around with Android before, and even outed the N1 tablet with the green robot’s backing, but having actual Nokia Android phones is bound to cause some movers and shakers in the mobile world come 2016, so we can’t wait for further snippets on the matter.

Turing smartphone is extra secure and stronger than steel

If you’re Turing Robotic Industries, you pour your energy into clever design both inside and out. The newly unveiled Turing Phone puts an emphasis on security, with its own server-free encrypted communication between owners and a fingerprint reader that encourages you to lock down your device. There’s also an Apple-like magnetic charging system, so you won’t send your phone flying. However, the real star of the show is the frame. It’s built from “liquidmorphium,” a metal alloy that’s reportedly stronger than steel or titanium. While there’s also aluminum, ceramic and plastic on the body, that exotic structure should reduce the chances that you’ll wreck your handset through a nasty drop.

turing-smartphone

Performance-wise, it’s not so cutting edge. You’re looking at last year’s Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch, 1080p screen. That’s certainly competent, but you probably won’t regret snagging that Galaxy S6. Its biggest advantages are a healthy amount of built-in storage (up to 128GB) and the combination of an 8-megapixel front camera and a 13-megapixel rear shooter with dual flashes. There’s broad support for North American and European LTE bands, too, so you shouldn’t miss out on fast data.

Like the idea? Be prepared to wait, and pay a fair amount. Turing tells us that its phone should ship on August 10th, and it’ll sell for $740 unlocked in 64GB form, or $870 for a 128GB variant. There are promises of carrier deals as well, although it’s not saying which networks are on deck. Given that many big providers tend to be leery of supporting relative newcomers, a direct order will likely be your best bet.

Europe opens antitrust investigation into Android

The European Commission has been examining Google’s Android operating system for nearly three years, and it is now ready to launch a formal investigation into claims of unfair app bundling. Google services and apps like Maps, Chrome, and YouTube are often bundled with Android devices, and competitors have complained that it’s giving Google an unfair advantage. Regulators previously questioned telecom companies and phone manufacturers, to see whether Google forces them to bundle apps or services at the expense of competitors.

Europe-antitrust-investigation-Android

THREE KEY AREAS OF FOCUS FOR EUROPE’S ANDROID INVESTIGATION

“The investigation will focus on whether Google has entered into anti-competitive agreements or abused a possible dominant position in the field of operating systems, applications and services for smart mobile devices,” says the Commission. The European Commission will focus on three key areas for its investigation. The first is whether Google has hindered the development and market access of rival apps and services by requiring or incentivising smartphone and tablet makers to exclusively pre-install Google’s own apps and services. The Commission will also investigate whether Google has prevented smartphone and tablet makers from creating modified versions of Android that run Google’s apps and services. A final key area will focus on whether Google is tying or bundling its apps and services on Android devices with other Google apps, services, or APIs.

Google has been increasingly adapting Android and its own APIs to bundle more of its own apps and services into the core benefit of Android, meaning forks like Amazon’s own Fire OS do not always have access to the latest features and changes without access to the key Google Play Services APIs. Members of the Open Handset Alliance are forbidden from producing Android devices based on forks of the OS, so the majority of smartphone makers use Google’s own version. The European Commission is clearly focusing on all of the intricacies of Google’s smartphone agreements, and the Android investigation will run separate to the Commission’s investigation into Google’s internet search behavior.

GOOGLE DEFENDS ANDROID

Google has responded to the Commission, defending Android in a number of ways. Google claims anti-fragmentation agreements ensure apps work across all Android devices, and app distribution agreements “make sure people get a great ‘out of the box’ experience with useful apps right there on the home screen.” Google’s VP of Android engineering, Hiroshi Lockheimer, argues that the company’s app bundling “helps manufacturers of Android devices compete with Apple, Microsoft and other mobile ecosystems that come preloaded with similar baseline apps.” Lastly, Lockheimer compares Google to Apple, noting that “there are far fewer Google apps pre-installed on Android phones than Apple apps on iOS devices.”

While Google’s comparison to Apple may be valid, recent IDC figures show that Android dominates smartphones shipments with 81.5 percent marketshare, a huge lead over Apple’s 14.8 percent. Together, Android and iOS made up 96.3 percent of all smartphone shipments in 2014. “We are thankful for Android’s success and we understand that with success comes scrutiny,” says Lockheimer. “We look forward to discussing these issues in more detail with the European Commission over the months ahead.”
