Using a mobile network’s SIM is one of the requirements of using a mobile device in this part of the world. We go to the market and select a mobile network that suits our lifestyle and begin using it. But each mobile network comes with different unique USSD codes for specific purposes. Each of these USSD codes is important to carry out specific functions.
Now, the problem is, these USSD codes are numerous and can become an uphill task to remember them when the need arises. For example, there is a different USSD code for recharging, checking data balance, checking account balance, checking bonus balance, etc. Sometimes, you would be forced to check on the internet for the specific USSD code you need. And different carriers have different USSD codes. This can pose a problem when there is no internet connection or no one around to ask.
So, looking at this problem, the HiOS team sat down and deliberated on how to create a feature to solve this problem. Then they came up with a unique solution. With this feature solution, you don’t need to cram in different codes in your head, all you need to remember is the “Star” key. Once you press this key on your phone’s dial pad, all the user codes of your mobile network carrier show up.
Cool Right? Yeah, we thought so too!

The game for everyone. This is the promise displayed by the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X / S arriving this November. Next-gen consoles hope to rally as many players as possible to their cause. They still need to give them the possibilities.
SONY IS NIBBLING AWAY AT XBOX
For years, Xbox has worked to make its menus, games and controllers accessible to as many people as possible. Sony and its PlayStation were still a little behind in this area, even if the PS4 had some accessibility parameters such as button customization, bold text, speech synthesis or even color inversion.
Basic functions to improve the video game for a large majority of players, but not yet extensive enough, by the Japanese manufacturer’s own admission. The latter therefore decided to move up a gear.
On its blog, Sony reveals a few of the new accessibility settings that will be found on the PS5.
Voice dictation made its appearance: it allows the player to quickly write text without a virtual keyboard by simply saying words that will appear on the screen.
Reading on screen : voice synthesis is still present. It allows the blind and visually impaired to hear the text displayed on the screen as well as all the features, menus and tabs on the screen that the controller passes over. But it will also be possible for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to send written messages that will be read aloud to other players.
Color correction : the PS5 will allow you to better adjust the colors according to each player. For games that support this function, the presets will be applied directly without going through the menu of different titles.
Good news too, these settings will be available in different languages.
The DualSense controller also fits
One of the attractions of the new PlayStation console is also its DualSense controller. This draws its strength in particular from its haptic feedback and its adaptive triggers. All this will be adjustable in order to reduce or even deactivate the force of the return or the vibrations to better adapt to the handicap.
Likewise, the audio that escapes from the controller during gameplay for more immersion can be adjusted as needed.
Sony is clearly building on the accessibility advancements Naughty Dog studio has made since Uncharted 4 : A Thief’s End. This year, The Last of Us Part II could thus boast of more than 60 parameters of accessibility to answer a maximum of needs, of the reinforcement of the hearing to the adaptation to multiple color blindness or even sharp adjustments for motor skills.Read all >>
Gaming over the years has evolved and has become a phenomenon. From simple 2D games like Pac Man, Tetris, Candy crush, gaming has evolved to highly graphical and complex games like Call of duty and PUBG. Now gaming has evolved into something much more fun and graphical.
A highly graphical game would definitely require a highly sophisticated gaming environment and this is where the Game mode comes in.
What is Game Mode?
The Game Mode is a mode designed to help you experience optimal gaming experience during gaming. The game mode provides a gaming ecosystem that allows you to experience and do much more. Once you are in the Game mode, it appears like you have been locked in a room full of gaming options without any interruptions.
What are the advantages of Game Mode?
The game mode is filled with lots of options, so we are going to be highlighting a few of them:
Magic Button: Most games require a “fire” button. The Magic Button option allows you to convert any of the volume rockers into the fire button.
Incoming Call Reject: This feature blocks all incoming calls during your gaming session. This has solved the problem of incoming calls interrupting smooth gameplay.
Pop-up Notification: This feature allows you to view your Whatsapp and messenger notifications scrolling in the background of your screen while playing games.
Floating Screen: This feature allows you to reply to Whatsapp messages and even browse the internet on Chrome by providing a floating screen. This floating screen can be moved around and the size can also be adjusted.
Increased Game Speed/Frame Rate: With the Game mode, more RAM memory is allocated to the game, thereby making the gaming experience smoother with faster frame rates.
Game Anti-Addiction: This feature reminds you when to stop playing games to avoid addiction. You get a timely reminder when playing the game so you know when to quit.
Parental Control: This feature allows parents to monitor what goes on the child’s device. Parents can see and monitor children games
Have you tried the game mode?

To help people feel more comfortable with their tweets, Twitter is launching its Instagram's version of Stories called "Fleets"
Right from its name, "Fleets" is a feature that brings ephemeral tweeting to the platform - allowing people to share short stories that sticks for 24 hours.
Living at the top of the timeline in a row of Stories-like bubbles, Fleets looks like Stories on every other social media platform, except Youtube, that let people post texts, photos, videos, and even share tweets which disappear in 24hrs.
Twitter's aim of bringing Fleets to the platform is pretty simple and understandable. Many Twitter users said, "Tweeting is uncomfortable because it feels so public, so permanent, and like there's so much pressure to rack up Retweets and Likes."
Twitter said, in their tests in four different countries, Fleeting helps people feel more comfortable sharing their personal and casual thoughts, opinions, and feelings because they disappear in a day, compared to the everlasting tweets.
Currently, you can't react or like or retweet/refleet a Fleet, and you won't be notified if anybody ever screenshots your Fleets. But you can always reply to a Fleet which automatically starts a Direct Message if the author has it enabled.
This new feature is being rolled out to many users on both iOS and Android. Kindly update your Twitter app and start Fleeting!

Being slightly biased, the BBC produces some of the finest audio and visual content on the planet. The iPlayer was yet another groundbreaking streaming service, but here in the UK, the audio element was spun off into the BBC Sounds app a couple of years ago to make finding BBC radio and podcasts much more consistent.
Those in the rest of the world still had access to the iPlayer Radio app, but now, as per the Beeb themselves, it’s time for you to switch to the BBC Sounds app fully (via Android Police). Now this might initially seem like an annoying and pointless endeavor, but once you give the new app a try you’ll actually feel right at home. For starters, it’s much easier to navigate and listen to radio, podcast, interviews and more.
If you have a smart speaker, asking to listen to BBC radio shows and podcasts should already be pulling or launching the Sounds app. This is just a move to contain all BBC-produced audio content in one consistent place. The app is pretty standard, with the ability to download shows for offline listening, live radio broadcast, plus the usual search and favorites options.
When launching iPlayer Radio around the globe, you should see a pop-up gesturing you to download and use the BBC Sounds app over the coming days and weeks. Eventually, you will be forced over — as we have here in the UK — but as someone initially staunchly against the switch, it is pretty painless. In fact, the BBC Sounds app looks much better in every aspect.
I highly recommend the Peter Crouch podcast if you even have a passing interest in the Premier League or football (soccer) in general. Oh, and the BBC won’t ever ask for payment information. So long as there are no geo-restrictions on content, listening is completely free. You can download the BBC Sounds app on the Google Play Store now.
