INTRODUCING CATCHUP: From Facebook NPE Team.

yusufaliu | 2020-05-285577

General
Hello T-fans.Facebook's New Product Experimentation team (NPE) has launched a new app "CatchUp" which addresses the issue of notification for chat availability. The new app keeps you aware/updated on when your friends/family/loved ones are available for a voice call, as well as in-progress group chats that you can join. This has added convenience and ease to keeping in touch with friends and family. In the app, you can set up your availability for chat or call so others get to see and get in touch with you at your convenience. With a single tap, you can also engage in simple and well coordinated group calls to catch up with lots of people at the same time. The NPE team is always on the lookout to capitalize on the latest trend in keeping Facebook ahead of the competition. And in this case, it could be "Clubhouse". An audio app that’s still in beta, but has turned buzzy because celebrities and high-profile venture capitalists are promoting it. The company has just been valued at about $100 million by Andreessen Horowitz, even with the lack of a public website. Keen to avoid the disruption of another Snapchat, Houseparty or TikTok, Facebook's NPE team seems determined to launch apps latching onto any such trend quickly, with a view to maximizing their popularity through Facebook's scale. So far, NPE has launched six apps (CatchUp inclusive) over the last six months. They include; • KIT: (Keep in Touch): An apple watch messaging app • HOBBI: A photo and video sharing app designed for documentation of your personal projects and hobbies in celebration of your progress. • WHALE: A meme creativity app with simplified templates and tools. • AUX: A social music listening app • BUMP: An anonymous chatting app aimed to help people make friends through conversations, not appearances. And now CatchUp, facilitating connection via voice calls. Click here to download "CatchUp" and don't forget to follow me on Tspot as well. You can also share your thoughts with us in the comment box.

WHAT IS AN ANDROID ROM? 3 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-05-273968

Rom
You might know that ROM stands for read-only memory, but it has an entirely different definition in the Android world. On Android, a ROM refers to the operating system that runs your device. Let’s take a look at a few basic facts about ROMs you should know. Ever had a question about your Android device, but the answer had a bunch of words in it that you didn't understand? Let us break down the confusing Android lingo for you. 1. TONS OF ANDROID ROMs EXIST Every Android phone is different, because hardware manufacturers customize stock Android to their liking. This is why Samsung’s phones look vastly different from LG’s devices, even though they both run Android. How Android Differs Depending on the Hardware Manufacturer Not all Android devices are created equal. See how yours stands out from the crowd with our comprehensive guide. Aside from the official ROMs, there’s an entire community built around custom ROMs. These are third-party ROMs built for various purposes. Sometimes a dedicated fan will create a ROM alone, but Often times they’re made by small teams. 2. THIRD-PARTY ROMs UNLOCK DIFFERENT FEATURES Just like Samsung phones have some features that stock Android doesn’t, you’ll find cool features in custom ROMs. They might add settings that aren’t normally available, or different methods of navigation. For a long time, one of the most attractive parts about using a custom ROM was receiving timely Android updates. Many cheaper phones, especially when Android was new, never received updates. This left owners of these devices without important security patches and fun new features. 3. MOST PEOPLE DON’T NEED ROMs Speaking of which, the custom ROM scene has seen a drop in popularity over the last few years. This is partially due to some ROMs dying out, but it’s mainly because most people are fine without a custom ROM. WHY YOU NO LONGER NEED A CUSTOM ROM FOR ANDROID DEVICES Android phone have gotten a lot better in recent years -- so do you even need a custom ROM Aside from the risks of modding your device, you can lose out on important features, like camera tweaks, using a custom ROM. Android is a lot more stable out of the box than it once was. And many features that were once only available on custom ROMs, like granular app permissions, control over notifications, and removing bloatware, are all built into modern Android phones. Of course, there will always be a group of Android enthusiasts who continue to work with and use custom ROMs, which is part of what makes Android so great.Read all >>

General
Hello T-fans, the Japanese video gaming developer "Square Enix" has today announced the coming to Android of a remastered version of Final Fantasy, Crystal Chronicles, now scheduled for August 27. The original game had its first launch on the Nintendo GameCube back in 2003 with over a million sold out copies. It is an essentially action RPG which takes place in an unnamed fantasy world inhabited by four races. The player takes control of a caravan of chibi like characters hailing from the village of Tipa, in which members of the world's four races comes together to help its mission in protecting the world's settlements from a deadly poison vapour called the Miasma, caused by an alien lifeform in a meteorite which shattered the world's sustaining Great Crystal prior to the gaming event. The remastered version which includes enhanced graphics, new sounds, new bosses of levels/stages, character voice acting and cross platform online multiplayer, originally dated for January 2020, is now scheduled for August 27 with a more polished look to the game.

WHAT IS GBOARD?: GOOGLE'S SMART KEYBOARD FOR PHONES AND TABLETS, EXPLAINED.

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-05-282214

General
Gboard, Google's virtual keyboard, is a smartphone and tablet typing app that features glide typing, emoji search, GIFs, Google Translate, handwriting, predictive text, and more. GOOGLE'S KEYBOARD Many Android devices come with Gboard installed as the default keyboard, but it can be added to any Android device. Gboard is a virtual typing app developed for Android. While it's the default keyboard on several devices, it can also be installed. Gboard combines the modern mobile keyboard with fun, and helpful Google features. HERE'S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GOOGLE'S KEYBOARD. What you need to know about Gboard, Google's virtual keyboard Gboard has a ton of features that make communicating on a mobile screen and with a smaller keyboard easier. It features standard tools like Google Search and a predictive typing engine, but it also supports more than 900 languages and a floating keyboard. Over the years, various updates have expanded Gboard's capabilities, from Google Translate and offline voice recognition to voice dictation and glide typing, which takes the pecking out of texting. 1-WHAT IS GBOARD? Tapping the taskbar above your Gboard keyboard opens a window to Google Search, where you can find news headlines, weather, sports scores, and more. When you find something you want to share, tap it and watch as the link is automatically added to your email, text, or other text apps you're using. The keyboard's text editing tool makes selecting, copying, and pasting text faster and more precise than the traditional method of tapping and dragging your finger. But Gboard isn't all work, and a number of keyboard options make having fun more accessible. Gboard offers users the ability to add a personal image from your camera roll as your keyboard background, and its smart GIF suggestions feature identifies GIFs relevant to text written , so you don't have to go looking for what you really want to say. Gboard also features an emoji library , stickers, and a handwriting mode when you want to add your personal flair. Most Android phones have Gboard pre-installed, but Android users can download the virtual from the Google Play store. Follow me for more.Read all >>

TECNO PLACES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN THE HANDS OF THEIR FANS WITH SPARK 5

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-05-265593

General
It is no news that smartphone users always want to get their hands on the latest and most innovative smartphones. Unfortunately, the more innovative most smartphone brands get, the more expensive their offerings become, putting these modern smartphones out of most people’s reach. Despite this, consumers continue to have increased expectations of their smartphones; from large storage space and superior camera quality, to long-lasting battery life and powerful performance, all at a price they won’t have to break the bank for. With the new TECNO Spark 5 Series, TECNO has met and exceeded such expectations while having the financial concerns of their fans at heart. The smartphone brand has once again designed a product that delivers a premium experience and a power-packed performance with the best of Artificial Intelligence at a sweet price range. The Spark 5 Series comes out of the box with TECNO’s proprietary HiOS which is based on Android Q. The smartphone has a unique AI powered 5 camera system that differentiates it from any other device in its category. For the young, urban, aspirational consumer, the Spark 5 combines the latest in technology breakthroughs while allowing them to share their photos and videos across their social media channels with ease. Questions people usually ask when they want to get a new phone this season: 1. Can I afford it? 2. How good is the camera? 3. I hope I will not have to spend a lot to fix the screen if screen is broken. 4. Is the selfie camera very amazing? 5. Does it have a good storage? Spark 5 series ticks all these boxes. Indeed, Spark 5 gives its users a transformative AI powered camera experience. Equipped with a 13 megapixel rear AI Quad camera and an 8 megapixel front camera, SPARK 5 brings unmatched quality in image and video creation. The cameras at the back consist of a primary camera, a camera that captures depth of field, AI lens for edge detection in portraits, face recognition, and color profile enhancements as well as a macro lens for photographing small subjects at very close distances. Behind the scenes, SPARK 5’s cameras are powered by an AI Camera 3.0 algorithm and AI Scene Detection. It also features 6 flashlights with 4 situated around the back camera and a dual front flash. Users can also enjoy close-up photography with a 4 cm macro photography mode that enables them to capture small and minute details. Additionally, the device includes AI HDR technology to increase dynamic range beyond what is captured by the camera’s sensors, allowing users to take photos with a higher dynamic range, fewer noise and clearer details. TECNO’s Spark 5 Series is a High Performing Machine. It allows for a wide range of user customization without requiring rooting the mobile device. The operating system is also bundled with utility applications that allow users to free up memory, freeze applications, limit data accessibility to applications, and more. See? Worry no more about going out of storage or memory on an affordable phone. Building upon the Spark 4’s battery performance, the Spark 5 Series packs a punch with a powerful 5,000 mAh battery, so that consumers can run powerful applications and multiple tabs without the need to constantly recharge. The device has a premium, immersive and alluring design. SPARK 5’s 6.6-inch dot in display screen is massive and is very elegant. With an industry leading 90.2% perfect screen ratio and a screen resolution of 720*1600 HD, users will have an immersive display that will transform their experience. With dark mode, the phone also gives users more battery time and decreased blue light emission, reducing eye strain. The finishing, the material and the device’s sparkly gives it a unique and elegant look. In all honesty, this sounds too good to be true, but it is in fact true. Spark 5 Series is everything a smartphone lover wishes for on a very convenient budget.Read all >>

How to Save Your Wet Cellphone…with Rice!

Hoilakes | 2020-05-264154

This post was last edited by Hoilakes at 2020-5-26 10:05 YES UNCOOKED RICE... Just leave the phone (and its disconnected battery) submerged in a bowl of grains overnight. If you're worried about rice dust getting inside your phone, you can instead use the packets of silica gel that often come stuffed in the pockets of new clothes. But acting fast is far more important than avoiding a little dust, so don't waste time shopping if you don't already have a drawer full of silica gel. The most important thing to remember is to avoid heat. That means no hair dryers, ovens, microwaves, or extended periods in direct sunlight. While heat will certainly evaporate the moisture, it could also warp components and melt adhesives. Those fragile glues are also why you'll want to avoid dunking the phone in rubbing alcohol (an oft­-prescribed tip on the Web). Alcohol is a solvent and can dissolve the internal adhesives. (If you drop your phone in the toilet, it's okay to wipe the outside with alcohol to disinfect it.)One final, perhaps surprising, note: If your phone gets soaked in salt water, you should probably flush the whole thing in fresh water before it dries. When salt water evaporates, it leaves crystals that can damage a phone's fragile components. Just be sure to remove the battery before flooding the device... BRB... Read all >>

JUST BEFORE YOU SHOP ONLINE

Exceptional | 2020-05-272120

This post was last edited by Exceptional at 2020-5-27 17:45 With the gift giving season approaching gradually, many people will be doing their shopping online especially at a sensitive moment like this. Mobile shopping is up 25% since last year and I can't imagine what this year would look like. With all of this online shopping, lots of personal information—phone numbers, home addresses, and credit cards—will be flying around the Internet. This personal data translates to dollars for cyber criminals who are gearing up for the heavy traffic and increased online sales in the upcoming months. Protecting Your Data Even though brick-and-mortar stores like Target and Home Depot have been targets of data theft over the last year, ecommerce transactions are also vulnerable to attacks. In addition, online shoppers are vulnerable to scams like phishing or fraudulent websites, Man-in-the-Middle attacks, spam/phishing emails, pop-ups, social engineering attacks, and fraudulent charities or causes. Once you give an online retailer your information, it’s their job to protect the data that you gave them, so it’s important that you be careful who you trust with your information online. But how do you know who to trust? How do you know if a site is legitimate and if you should give them your data? How to know if a Website Is Secure Before giving any information to a website, you should make sure it is secure. Below are some quick tips that you can use to tell if a site is secure. Check the SSL Certificate Look at the URL of the website. If it begins with “https” instead of “http” it means the site is secured using an SSL Certificate (the s stands for secure). SSL Certificates secure all of your data as it is passed from your browser to the website’s server. To get an SSL Certificate, the company must go through a validation process. However, there are a few different levels of validation—and some of them are easier to get through than others. The lowest level of validation, Domain Validation (DV), simply validates ownership of the domain and not the legitimacy of the organization requesting the certificate. In other words, if you bought the domain “amaz0n.com” and requested a certificate for it, you would get the certificate because you own the domain. The highest level of validation, Extended Validation (EV), is the safest and most extensive. With Extended Validation the company requesting the certificate has to prove their identity as well as their legitimacy as a business. You can tell if a site has an EV certificate by looking at the address bar. Browsers show a green address bar with a lock icon for websites with EV certificates, as shown in the picture below. Look at the Domain Cyber attackers will sometimes create websites that mimic existing websites and try to trick people into purchasing something on or logging into their phishing site. These sites often look exactly like the existing website. Let’s use the same example as before: a cyber attacker purchases the domain “amaz0n.com” and sets up a website at that location that looks exactly like the amazon.com website. They buy a DV certificate for their website and try to trick users (by using phishing emails or other methods) to purchase items or log into their accounts on the mimic phishing site. To avoid these kinds of attacks, always look at the domain of the site you are on. If you get an email from your bank or other online vendor, don’t click the link in the email. Type the domain into your browser to make sure you are connecting to the website where you intend to be. Look for Signs that the Company Is Real There are a few signs that you can look for to help you know if a company is real or not. Physical address and phone number – If the company lists a physical address and phone number there is a higher chance that they are a real business. Reputable companies will list their information so you can contact them if there is a problem. Return policy – Reputable sites should list their return policy as well as their shipping policy. If you can’t find these policies on their site, you probably don’t want to purchase from them. Prices are too low to believe – It’s great when you find a bargain, but you should be wary of sites that offer products for prices that are far lower than they should be. You could end up with knock off merchandise, stolen goods, or not get anything at all. Privacy statement – Reputable sites should tell you how they protect your information and whether they give your information to third parties. You should make sure a site has a privacy statement and read it before you make a purchase. Be Safe Out There Shopping online is extremely convenient and can make finishing up your holiday gift list quick and easy. But falling victim to an online scam or data theft would ruin anyone’s holidays. Make sure you stay safe online and protect your information by following these quick tips during the holidays, and throughout the year. #Stay Safe both offline and online. Good news: I'll be sharing with us some quick, tested and trusted legit ways to make cool cash especially this lockdown with little or no capital! I'm sure you would love it, you may want to follow me to stay updated. Thanks, see you soon. Read all >>

This post was last edited by Hoilakes at 2020-5-27 08:58 Find out which free and paid Android apps are worth downloading for sketching ideas & creating new designs, including Sketchbook Express, Infinite Design, Adobe and more. Which are the best Android apps for designers? Here, we bring you some of our favourite apps for designers with Android tablets to help you kick start your mobile creativity.From budget Android tablets made by companies such as tecno and others are powerful, high-end tablets– and smartphones too – are still very popular tools for designers from all walks of life.What really makes tablets and smartphones useful for creative, though, are the apps available to install on those devices, but with so many apps to choose from in the Google Play Store it can be daunting task to try and pick out what's worthwhile downloading.To help you, I have collected some great Android apps that should get you started, and could become invaluable assets for all designers. and i will try enough to break them down for you... Infinite DesignCreated by developer Sean Brakefield, Infinite Design is a vector graphics apps for Android that lets you create designs using your tablet or smartphone. If you want to try before you buy, the free version includes an infinite canvas, infinite layers and an infinite undo and redo system (hence the name), layer options such as split, merge, flip and duplicate and five symmetry tools, the ability to import images to the canvas and add special effects and a path editing and pen tool for precise control. Without paying for the full version, you'll be able to save your work as a JPEG, but the full version will give you the ability to save images as PNG, PSD or SVG, and is ad-free. Sketchbook Created by Autodesk, Sketchbook is free to download painting and drawing application that can help you achieve simple tasks like sketching out ideas to more complex undertakings that involve layers and intricate brushes. The tools aren't as comprehensive as those found in the Sketchbook Pro app, which is available as an in-app purchase after downloading the free Sketchbook app here, but will do the trick for most designers who need a tool for moments of inspiration while out and about. to be continued...REMEMBER TO FOLLOW ON TSPOT THANK YOU Read all >>
