Live Photos for all! Google Photos now lets you share and view your moving pictures over iOS, Android, and PC

A couple of years ago, Apple introduced its “Live Photos” — a feature, which has the phone’s camera record a short video that spans the time just before and just after you press the shutter button. Photos are viewable as normal, but force-pressing (or just long pressing if you don’t have 3D Touch) makes them “come alive” with the frames that were captured just before and just after. A neat little feature, great for capturing family moments with that fidgety little one, pets, fireworks, and other unpredictable stuff.

For quite a while, Live Photos have been an exclusive club. If you wanted …


Dock for Huawei Mate 10 allows it to be used as a PC with a desktop UI for Android apps?

Samsung’s Dex dock offers users a desktop style UI when a Android flavored handset being used is connected to a large screen via the dock. This is obviously an improvement over a simple blown up image of the Android UI that the previous technology was capable of. Now, out of France, comes word that the Huawei Mate 10 will be able to sync with a  Dex-like dock, which will enable users to use a desktop-like UI to access Android apps. This will work even if the phone is connected to a large screen wirelessly through Miracast.

MirAxess CEO Yanis Anteur said in a published report that the …

How to turn the Galaxy Note 8 into a graphics tablet for your PC

Arguably the biggest stand-out feature of Samsung’s Galaxy Note series is the S-Pen that comes with each device. Over the years, Samsung has greatly expanded the functionality of the S-Pen and the software powering the Note line, turning them from a simple pen and notebook substitute for the digital age, into a killer feature for the brand.

The brand new Galaxy Note 8 does its part in expanding the said functionality further, adding up to a 100 pages worth of hand-written notes on the always-on display and a number of other S-Pen-related bells and whistles, …

Middle-earth: Shadow of War soft-launched on mobiles ahead of PC and console release

Monolith announced the sequel to the highly-acclaimed Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be making its debut on PC and consoles on October 10. Until then, iOS users can get a taste of what’s to come by downloading the game, called Middle-earth: Shadow of War, on their devices. Well, sort of.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is only part of the same universe, but its scope is much more focused on a mobile experience, so you can understand that there will be a lot of gameplay features missing that will be included in the PC/console game.

Nevertheless, publisher …

Samsung DeX review: the S8 won't replace your desktop PC

Introduction

Samsung had an idea: what if, instead of constantly juggling between a smartphone and a desktop, one could simply use their phone to do all of their daily work, simply plugging it into a dock when in need of a bigger screen? Okay, when we say “Samsung had an idea”, we actually mean something more in line with “a bunch of companies, including Microsoft, Splashtop, and Jide, had an idea which never really took off for a variety reasons, and Samsung is now trying it out as well” – but that sure isn’t as catchy.

And it’s easy to see why this would be an attractive …

Remix OS on Mobile will allow you to have an Android smartphone that can also work like a PC

In 2015, a company by the name of Jide hit the scene with the Remix Ultra Tablet. The Remix Ultra Tablet featured a design very similar to Microsoft’s Surface line of gadgets, but rather than running Windows, the Tablet was powered by something called Remix OS – Jide’s custom take on Android with various elements that are very akin to a desktop operating system. The Ultra Tablet created for somewhat of a cult following, and Jide was quick to follow it up with the Remix Mini later that year. Dubbed as “The World’s First True Android PC”, the Remix Mini is a tiny $90 PC …

How to run Android in a PC ( BlueStacks )

Android is the most widely used mobile OS while Windows is number one in PC operating system usage. How cool would it be if we can run both of them on a single device. I bet you wanted to do this at sometime when using your PC. In this article we provide necessary information to run all Android apps in Windows PC.

BlueStacks

Possibly BlueStacks is currently the best way to run Android apps on Windows. It doesn’t replace your entire operating system. Instead, it runs Android apps within a window on your Windows desktop. This allows you to use Android apps just like any other program. BlueStacks also includes support for easy installation of apps from Google Play, so the process is as seamless as possible. Even better, BlueStacks runs Android apps and games with surprisingly good performance.

The UI is fairly simple and installing and running is a child’s play. This is only a solution for running Android apps on Windows. Unlike many of the other options here, this is a fairly stable and polished experience.

Similar applications, including YouWave and Windroy, lack the speed and easy app installation which BlueStacks offers.

Official Android Emulator

Google provides an official Android emulator as part of the Android SDK. You can use it to run the Android operating system in a window on your existing computer. This gives you complete access to the entire Android operating system. It’s intended for developers to test their Android apps.

Unfortunately, the official Android emulator is rather slow and isn’t a good option for everyday use. It’s useful if you want to test apps or play with the latest version of Android, but you wouldn’t want to actually use apps or play games in it.

To get started with the Android Emulator, download Google’s Android SDK, open the SDK Manager program, and select Tools > Manage AVDs. Click the New button and create a an Android Virtual Device (AVD) with your desired configuration, then select it and click the Start button to launch it.

Android-x86

Android-x86 is a community project to port Android to the x86 platform so it can run natively on Intel and AMD processors, allowing you to install Android on a laptop or tablet just as you’d install Windows or Linux. This project was originally noteworthy for providing a way to run Android on low-power netbooks, giving those old netbooks some additional life.

Only certain devices are officially supported at this time. The official page lists ASUS Eee PCs, the Viewsonic Viewpad 10, Del Inspiron Mini Duo, Samsung Q1U, Viliv S5, and Lenovo ThinkPad x61 Tablet as tested platforms. However, you should also be able to install it inside VirtualBox. This allows you to install Android inside a virtual machine.

Bear in mind that this project isn’t stable. You should exercise extreme caution when installing it on physical hardware.
