Fantasy Magic Fonts/Font Manager has recently received some additions of newly added fonts. These includes;
Merry Christmas Stream
You may want to go check it out via the Fantasy Magic Font app or you can also choose to do so via Hi-Themes (launch the app>discovery>font) and choose from the list of fonts available.
And just incase you would like to explore some other options, like the use of third party fonts, I know a lot of people previously said this wasn't possible on a Tecno device but that's not true. Click here if you would love to explore this option without the need of rooting your device.

People do different things on their WhatsApp and you’ll agree that Flashlight Notification is the coolest thing ever to be added to WhatsApp. How do you see it to have your phone’s flashlight blink when there is an incoming call from whatsapp or when you receive a message on your phone? Cool right?
That’s what you get with the Flashlight Notification. With this feature, you can differentiate between phone calls and WhatsApp calls while setting yourself apart from other people. Also, this is really a very good accessibility feature for the deaf and hearing impaired that uses LED flash, to provide a visible clue for incoming notifications.
How to turn on whatsapp flashlight notification on any TECNO device.First you need to have social turbo on your TECNO device. If you don’t have that, you can download it from HiOS lab and install. If you already have it, all you have to do is open your social turbo app in settings and enable flashlight notification and you are good to go.
Just imagine you are with your friends on a Friday night partying and somehow you are lost in the moment because you don’t want to miss out the fun and just at that moment there is an urgent incoming call via whatsapp from your boss, You’ll have no idea about the call and you would have missed it but flashlight notification feature won't let you do that. The flashlight notification will pop up to help draw your attention to the device.
Whether you need flash notifications or you just want them for cool points, once you enable the feature, all you have to do is leave your device screen-down, you won’t just hear notifications come in your phone, there will be a notification light too.
feel free to share with us your experience using flash light notification feature in the comment section.Read all >>
A recent study shows that 70 million phones are lost each year. Without a SIM card, GPS location or Internet access, it may seem like all is lost when your phone goes missing. But did you know that you can use the IMEI number to track your lost Android phone?
IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique 15-digit code authorized by GSMA, just like an identity certificate for your phone. Every time a phone uses a particular network to make or receive a call, send or receive a message, its IMEI number is automatically emitted and tracked. Because the police and service providers have databases in which these ID numbers fall into white and black lists, an owner can report his/her IMEI number and make it blacklisted after a theft.
In our daily lives, some people use a Bluetooth tracer GPS locator to locate smartphones nearby — however, this approach has distance limitations.
If, unfortunately, your phone has been taken out of the 10-meter range, use the IMEI number and an anti-theft tracker to know where it is and turn it into nothing more than a brick for the thief.
GET THE IMEI NUMBER OF YOUR ANDROID PHONE
Getting to know the number is easy. The fastest way is to dial *#06#, a command to make the unique ID appear.
Another easy way to find the IMEI number is to navigate through “Settings” and tap “About Phone” to check the IMEI code of your Android phone.
In most cases, the IMEI number exists on the reverse side of a phone, or underneath the removable battery. If your phone is lost, but its packaging is kept, you are still able to find the IMEI number on the label.
LOCATE YOUR LOST PHONE WITH AN IMEI TRACKER APP
There are many phone finder apps available for you on Google Play, such as AntiTheft App & IMEI Tracker All Phone Location, Find Lost Phone, Find My Device, SeekDroid: Find My Phone, and so on. Most can be activated by the SMS you send; some support using the IMEI number. Let’s take the first one for example.
Search for “IMEI tracker” in Google Play, find “AntiTheft App & IMEI Tracker All Phone Location” on your phone. Make sure your phone is running on Android 4.4 or higher. Then, start installing the app.
After finishing the installation, run the app. Give all the permissions that the IMEI tracker App asks for, including contacts, calls, storage, SMS, and location. In case you need to track your phone, all these permissions will be necessary to activate full functionality.
Press “continue” to move on after watching a short commercial. This free IMEI tracker App is great, but the only problem is that it contains ads that you have to watch. Unluckily, you cannot skip the ads, if the video is not yet loaded, you will not be able to go to the next step.
Input the IMEI number of your lost Android phone, check your input, and tap “Track”. A small window with a list of places will appear, indicating the location and the close proximity of your phone.
Using the IMEI number to track the lost phone is not the only function of an IMEI tracker. There are also some important anti-theft functions that you should know about.
To protect your device further — and before the theft — you should set the PIN number and remember it. Thus, you can control the stolen phone by sending the corresponding codes to make it give out alarms, send SMS about its real-time location, sync data to the device you are using and more.
Embedded on the handset, an IMEI number is difficult but possible to be changed for thieves with professional tools. Once it is changed, a phone is no longer identified as the same by the network.
Get acquainted with your IMEI number beforehand, and never wait till it is too late after your phone is stolen or lost. Report your IMEI number to the police, ask the service provider to block all services of your lost phone as soon as possible.
Daily *#06# to know your IMEI number today..
Please if this information helps you alot, please comment, like and and follow me for more.. THANKSRead all >>

Hello again T-spot users. So today I cover what it's like having Android 10 as a daily driver. I threw tantrums about an OTA that to date has never come, and I decided to do the upgrade manually (that is get the software and flash using SP Flash Tools).
Tecno really put work into the software, but considering that they only do so in order to get the software onto a newer device (i.e the Camon 15 in this case) is just 'Argh!'. But oh well, the Spark 3 Pro release is buggy, not you know phone life threatening bugs, but just little annoyances. Like on the lockscreen for example, sometimes the device won't unlock and requires the PIN or pattern to unlock, instead of the biometric options. Such small bugs however would be fixed by the OTA to HiOs v 6.0.1, which at Tecno's pace will probably come in July.
Other than the little bugs here and there, the release is stable. To enjoy this release that was well sent out to only 2000 people, send me a PM and I'll share the link to download the ROM. (Please note that it's only for the Spark 3 Pro). Happy upgrading people!!Read all >>

Kotlin has become quite popular since Google announced it is supporting the programming language at the Google I/O 2017 conference.
Kotlin helps you avoid common programming language mistakes such as NullPointerExceptions because of the built-in features that improve the quality of app development. Another advantage is the fact that Kotlin is 100% interoperable with Java and requires writing less boilerplate code which in turn saves time in testing and maintenance.
Kotlin runs on Java Virtual Machine, which is widely used for developing Android apps.
Here is a simple guide to build your first app with Kotlin.
1. Android Studio
To build apps using Kotlin, you will need to have Android Studio installed on your machine. The platform works seamlessly with Windows, Mac and Linux. The installation process is similar across all platforms.
2. Create Project
Once you have setup Android Studio, you need to click on create project. On the welcome screen, click on Start a new Android Studio project. In the new project dialog box, enter the name of your first project. Accept the default example domain. Check the box that reads ‘include Kotlin support’.
Accept the default project location and go to the next step. In Target Android Dialog, accept the defaults, and click Next. Select empty activity here and click next. In the customize activity dialog box, you will find an option to accept default.
3. Create user interface
Let’s look at an example of building a counter app with plus button to increment the value and minus to decrement the value. You can easily create the user interface by using existing components.
The user interface of an app made with Kotlin will give the following three components:
•A Plus Button to increment the Counter
•A Minus Button to decrement the Counter
•A TextView to display the value of the Counter
4. Write code of the main activity
The Kotlin Android Extension Plugin does this job easily. You need not make findViewById() calls while writing the first app. You can give references of Views in MainActivity easily with the extensions plugin. Under the main activity, you need to define a property to store value of the counter. Once you set OnClickListener on the plus and minus buttons to update Counter value, Android Studio will generate the code.
5. Testing the app made with Kotlin
You can click on build button to test the app. Android Studio will run the app in emulator that will help you test the app.
Stay tuned for more interesting informations.
