Staying at home is boring, right?
What about playing an exciting game on your phone?
Mobile games can be great time killers when you’re bored or waiting in line somewhere, but there are times when normal smartphone tasks interrupt your gaming session.
This is why the HiOS team sees the Game Mode feature as one of its top priorities, and they developed a Game Mode Feature.
The idea behind the Game Mode feature is to automatically apply various settings when you start playing a game on your device. Since different settings annoy different people, the Game Mode application lets you choose what you want to set when a gaming session has begun.
Some of Game Mode Features include:
o Restrict Incoming calls notification to the top of the screen (instead of the full screen) and you can choose to accept or reject the call.
o Pop-up messages.
o Off-screen gaming.
o Change the Wi-Fi state.
o Magic button.
o Game Anti-Addiction.
o Switch SIM data.
When playing games on your Phone, unsteady graphics, network delays, incoming calls, notifications, and the accidental touching of keys are all common issues that may interrupt and affect your gaming experience. Game Mode provides the perfect solution by optimizing the performance, network connection, notification delivery method, and other key settings of your Phone, so you will always have smooth gaming experience.
What is your favorite feature in the Game Mode?

The Pokemon Company has announced the Pokemon Unite, a new mobile game in the MOBA genre, developed in collaboration with Tencent Games.
Pokemon Unite launches on Nintendo Switch, Android and iOS. The game will put two teams of five players against each other - they will strive to gain experience, fulfill goals and score points that will ultimately lead them to victory.
Some creatures in the game, such as Charmander, Bulbazavr and Squirtle, will develop during each match, giving you access to new skills and abilities, similar to traditional MOBA, such as DOTA 2 or League of Legends. Pokemon Unite differs from the latter in that it attracts a younger and more diverse audience.
Players earn points by defeating enemies and moving across the map, which consists of various environments with their own excellent terrain. You can even find wild Pokémon hanging around who can be defeated in exchange for experience and extra buffs. The full experience will include several maps inspired by the regions of different generations of Pokemon and this will certainly be a great way to please fans.
Once you get enough points, you must go to one of the many areas located on the other side of the card and cash them out, although it is possible that they will be guarded by the enemy. To win, you need to work with your friends and come up with smart strategies and workarounds.
Pokemon Unite will be a free and cross-platform game on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. Most likely, there will be in-game purchases for real money.

Twitter has decided to drop the use of programming terms; Master, Slave, & Blacklist, with an origin of decades ago.
In programming, "Master" refers to the main version of code that controls the "Slaves," or replicas. "Blacklist" is used to describe items that are automatically denied, typically forbidden websites. The move to do away with such terms according to twitter, was to encourage an all inclusive language that fosters togetherness where all can thrive, doing away with racism of any form following the death of George Floyd.
Google has also encouraged developers on its Chromium Web Browser Project and Android Operating System to do away with the word "Blacklist" & "Whitelist".
Google's Chromium web browser project and Android operating system have both encouraged developers to avoid using the terms "blacklist" and "whitelist".
Last month, the world's biggest site for software developers, GitHub, owned by Microsoft, said it was working on changing the term 'Master' from its coding language.
With the heated events following the death of George Floyd, social media platforms have been under so much pressure over hate speech/contents allowed to air on their site. Facebook seems to be hit the most, with a widespread of ad boycott from the Stop Hate for Profit Campaign.
Ford, Adidas, Coca Cola, Unilever and Starbucks have all added their weight to the campaign, aimed at removing hateful content on social networks.
Let us hear from you over this in the comment box. Don't forget to leave a like, and you can also follow me on Tspot for more.

Our smartphones command our attention several times every day. Some people even check their phones in the middle of the night. Why do we allow this endless torrent of incoming notifications, which are often unimportant, or worse, email spam, to interrupt us? If you can’t resist that blinking LED or that buzzing in your pocket, then you need to get to grips with the Do Not Disturb mode on Android.
Don’t let your smartphone addiction win. Set some ground rules with your phone and ensure that it doesn’t bother you at meetings, whiles you are working or when you are sleeping. Let’s look at how to use Android’s Do Not Disturb mode.
How to access Do Not Disturb on your phone:Go to Settings > Sounds > Do Not Disturb > Turn On or simple draw down the Quick Settings menu (Notification Panel) and click on Do Not Disturb
Features and configuration of Do Not Disturb
BehaviorIn the Behaviors section, there are two options. Sound & vibration which lets you add exceptions for what should be muted: Alarms, Media, and Touch sounds. Toggle each one on, to make sure they work in Do Not Disturb mode.
The second option is Notifications. Here, you can customize how Do Not Disturb works. You can hide just sound from notifications (they will still show up on your device), or you can hide visual and sound interruptions (the default).
Tap on the gear icon next to Custom to tailor the feature even further. You can toggle off things like don’t turn on screen, hide notification dots, and more.
ExceptionsIt is the second section, which allows you to white-list certain contacts or callers. In the subsection called Calls, you can configure exactly who can reach you while Do Not Disturb is turned on, and there’s an option to make it starred contacts only. You can customize starred contacts in the Contacts app of your phone, or just look below to the Starred contacts section to set it up.
There is a toggle for allowing repeat callers to get through as well, in case you get a call from someone more than once within a 15-minute period.
ScheduleIn this section, there are two different subsections: Duration, and Turn off Automatically.If you tap on the Duration tab, a popup will appear allowing you to enable Do Not Disturb until you manually turn the feature off, set a defined time limit, or have the system ask you each time you wish to enable Do Not Disturb.
The Turn on automatic section is a little more robust. It allows you to automatically turn on Do Not Disturb during sleeping hours and meetings. You can also set custom rules in this section, based on events or time of day.
Tap on Add rule to create a rule, choose whether it’s an event or a time, add a name, and then follow the instructions on the screen to configure it further.

There a lot of reasons why you might want to hook your smartphone up with your TV or other bigger monitors: to play games, for a more immersive movie experience, to access files, pictures and other multimedia etc. True, Miracast and other wireless methods are convenient and less messy. Using hardwired connections, however, comes with its advantages: reduction in lag, low-latency signal etc. To add, it is relatively easier to set up compared to wireless routes. As easy as it is though, the method to adopt will vary according to the type of smartphone you intend connecting to your TV (iPhone, Samsung, or other Android), your TV’s display input (HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort) as well as why you need to connect to your TV.
Connecting as a Storage or Media Device
Should you just need to share a couple of pictures from your phone with your family and friends, and your TV has a USB port, the connection can be made inserting a regular micro USB or USB-C charging cable directly to your TV. This method also works if you need to charge your phone. Otherwise, if you intend to twin (read: mirror) your smartphone’s display onto your TV using USB, read the methods below to see how to about it.
Mirroring your Smartphone with USB using MHL
MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) is a technology that allows smartphones, tablets, and other MHL-compatible connect to TVs, projectors, and other displays. To foster this connection, the following are required:
A USB-to-MHL adapter
An HDMI cable
A TV with an HDMI connection
NOTE: USB to HDMI MHL adapters vary according to the model of your smartphone. Before buying one, ensure the cable you’re purchasing is compatible with your device. Google “MHL cable ” to find the best adapter for your device.
MHL adapters help convert the signal from your phone’s USB port to a format the HDMI port of your TV can read an interpret. These MHL adapters usually come with a dongle which requires a power source.
Plug-in the MHL adapter to your phone’s USB port
Hook the adapter up to a power source. Some newer adapters do not require an external power source, though.
Connect your phone to your TV by inserting an HDMI cable into the adapter and to your compatible TV
That’s it. You can proceed to start watching movies and playing games on your TV.
Mirroring your Smartphone with USB using SlimPort
Like MHL, SlimPort is another technology that allows you send audio and visual signals from your smartphone to your TV using a wired connection. However, compared to MHL, SlimPort is better in that its supported video output isn’t limited to HDMI only. SlimPort supports the transfer of signals to TVs and monitors with DisplayPort, DVI, and VGA input. To add, SlimPort adapters and converters do not require an external power source as they draw needed power from the connected smartphone.
The requirements for this method include:
Insert the SlimPort cable or adapter to your smartphone
Link your smartphone to your TV by inserting one end of the appropriate (HDMI/DVI/VGA/DisplayPort) cable to the adapter, and the other end to your TV
Change the input source of your TV and you should now see your phone’s screen on your TV.

As it happens, our devices do have battery-management systems, which reduce damage from overcharging and shut down automatically if the battery gets too low. Nonetheless, to maximize the battery capacity in the future we should avoid that 0% battery mark altogether, while also keeping those batteries at least partially charged if storing them for a prolonged period of time to avoid deep discharge.
Extend charging times
Many of today’s mobile devices have a fast charge option that enables users to supercharge them in minutes rather than hours. This is convenient when we’re in a rush, but should be avoided otherwise. Why? Because charging a battery too quickly reduces its storage capacity. Physically, the shuttling of lithium metal and lithium ions between the electrodes in lithium-ion batteries is a slow process. Therefore, charging at lower rates allows more complete shuttling to occur, which enhances the battery’s charge capacity.
For example, charging a phone in five minutes compared with the standard two hours can reduce the battery capacity for that charge cycle by more than 20%.
Keep the temperature just right
The exact range in which lithium-ion batteries can be stored to maintain optimal long-term charge capacity is between 0℃ and 45℃.
Below 0℃, the amount of power available within the battery system is reduced because of a restriction in the movement of lithium metal and lithium ions within the electrodes and through the electrolyte. Above 45℃, the amount of power available is actually enhanced compared with lower temperatures, so you can get a little more “juice” from your battery under hotter conditions. However, at these temperatures the degradation of the battery is also greatly accelerated, so over an extended period of time its ability to store charge will be reduced.
As a result, phones should be kept out of direct sunlight for prolonged periods, especially in summer when surface temperatures can increase to above 70℃.
Use battery-saving modes
They concluded there are a handful of simple software and hardware strategies that can be used to preserve battery life.
Reduce screen brightness. The easiest way to conserve battery life while maintaining full function is to reduce the brightness of the screen. For devices that have an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display, you can also use the “light on dark” option for viewing.
Turn off the cellular network or limit talk time. The connection to the cellular network uses the global system for mobile communication (GSM) module. The GSM is the most dominant energy-consuming component in a mobile phone, so it is beneficial to turn it off altogether or at least limit call time.
Use Wi-Fi, not 4G. With Wi-Fi being up to 40% less power-hungry than 4G for internet browsing, turning off cellular data and using Wi-Fi instead will help your battery life.
Limit video content. Video processing is one of the most power-consuming operations on a mobile device.
Turn on smart battery modes. All modern mobile devices have a smart battery saving mode (for instance, Android has Power Saving Mode and iOS has Low Power Mode). These software features modify central processing unit (CPU) usage for different apps, screen brightness, notifications and various hardware options to reduce energy consumption.
Use Airplane mode. This mode typically disables GSM, Wi-Fi, bluetooth and GPS functions on your devices. When turning off all such auxiliary functions, the device will use only up to 5% of its usual energy consumption with the screen off. For comparison, simply having your device in idle can still use more than 15%.

Last month, it was discovered that Google was working on bringing a dark theme to its suite of office apps. Not just for the front page of the apps either, but full dark themes that extend to the editing view. Today, Google officially announced the dark themes are rolling out to Docs, Sheets, and Slides on Android.
As was previously revealed, the dark theme applies to the document browser front page and the actual editing view. The dark theme in the editing view only applies to Docs and Sheets, though, as Slides already supports changing background colors. The dark theme itself is the typical dark gray that Google uses and the apps all maintain their respective accent colors.The theme for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides respects Android’s system-wide setting. Users can also adjust the theme in the apps individually by going to Menu > Settings > Theme > Dark. If you’re using the dark theme you can always quickly preview a document in the light theme by using More > View in light theme.
Google has begun rolling out the dark theme today for all G Suite customers and anyone with a personal account. Users should see the new theme in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides over the next couple of weeks. It’s likely that this will be enabled via a server-side switch like many of Google’s past dark themes. Regardless, editing and browsing documents at night is about to get a lot easier on the eyes.
