Social networking is one of the most popular sector that has been growing over internet because people love to share their opinion, their good or bad news with their friends and the known ones over internet. Today I will be sharing an application which has its own social circle and which has been primarily developed to let you interact with new people who somewhat share the same opinion about the intellectual matters happening all around the world.
Honestly speaking I avoid killing time on Facebook and I feel that Twitter is far better than that because Twitter is not much famous in my country and there are very less number of people over Twitter as compared to Facebook and so there are less number of distractions over Twitter as compared to Facebook. So I end up reading opinions from great scholars and orators about some of the very important topic and news happening round the globe and sometimes I also participate by stating my views.
How Does This Application Work
Hammer as an application is solely dedicated to the last 2 lines mentioned above in the paragraph. It will ask you a general question and based upon your opinion it will show that what others have to say about it. We will recommend you to directly choose the news section and then share your opinion about the latest topics. You can choose to change the topics by choosing a different category.
One of the sections of this application will ask you a question and show you two options in form of images and you will have to select an option and once you select your option, you will see the result of the poll which will tell you whether you go with the majority or not. You can also leave a comment related to that question and you can also post or own question which can be also be shared over the other social networks.
This application is unique in its operation and you will surely use it once in a while (even if you don’t get addicted to it).This application is really great for the Marketing research surveyors who will at least the get opinion about their questions from the 50 to 60 users. Please let us know if you face any problem while using this application, you can download the same on iPhone and Android smart-phone both.
It was just few years back when we scanning a document meant connecting a scanner first, then placing the document in the required orientation and then keeping the digital format in memorable format.
But just imagine the way offers have been now, where you either need to produce the previous bill number to avail the discount. Every time you went to home and instead snapping pictures of the cool gadgets you bought you had the urge to OCR the bills to your computers.
But thanks to the smartphone. (Are the really smart, i doubt) We don’t need to have so many steps. Instead we have now capable apps to do the job done uberly through camera. Here are top apps for scanning document on your Android and iOS smartphones.
Evernote has myriad of functions and note taking one of the primary one. Very few people know about the inbuilt feature of it to take pictures and store it as documents even PDF formats. Now how cool is that?
With in the note app, tap the plus-sign button and select Page Camera. There you go. The best part it you can scan multiple documents and then merge them into a single one.
Google drive is another multi-utility app available for both android and iOS. Simply snap a document and it gets saved into your drive in the form of PDF. It will automatically (obviously) add the OCR so that its easily searchable in the drive.
Unlike the two of the apps mentioned above, this app is a premium but at first glance looks like worth paying. The interface is clean and easy enough to operate. Once you have scanned the document, you can scan them directly to Dropbox, Evernote and Google Docs.
CamScanner is another option if you wanted to turn your smartphone into an OCR scanner. The app lets you access documents from the web from its web interface www.camscanner.net where you can also edit file name, tags and other attributes of file.
TurboScan is among those apps which deliver better performance with high image quality. If your main objective is about document scanning accuracy, and want documents to be crisper and clear, TurboScan is what you should get.
DocScanner is another option for iOS, Android and Mac users which offers a decent interface. The app also has the feature to detect the edges of the pages so this can be an addon.
If personally i would have to pick one, i would go with either with Google Drive or Evernote app. Not only because these are free to use, but also offer the best possible synchronisation on different devices. For a premium service, i have my reservations with Scanner Pro.
Battery of an iPhone has always been of a huge concern to the users specially when iPhone 4S was released. On the specifications page, it clearly states that stand up time and the talk time on the network is 66.66% of what iPhone 4 offers.
I am sure that many of you would have tried many apps on App Store and Cydia but they don’t really alter the battery backup and after some time, we delete them. The reason being some of the times, we don’t know that what this application actually doing to increase the battery backup. But today in this post we will talk about a tool named ‘BattSaver’ which claims to double your battery back-up.
After only reading the description you will know that this tool we surely work because it does not have any anonymous operation for increasing the backup. We have mentioned about the tips of increasing your battery backup in this post. Obviously, we have lot more things to focus on apart from following those tips whole day. But this jailbreak tool mentioned above will do this for you.
First screen of the tool will appear as mentioned below in the screenshot. There are 4 options which can be seen on this screen. ‘View Graphs’ will show you a graph plotted between time and the Current Capacity.
You can see the graph below, it shows the current capacity is falling with time, so once you will use it will fall with as time proceeds.
Other option is ‘Last Battery State’ which will show you the complete details about the battery, number of times this battery has been charged, maximum capacity of this battery, the present status of current level in the battery, temperature of the phone, info about the charger to which your phone is connected and many more.
Under Settings section, you can see the graphs for the data collected over past weeks or you can change the mode of operation of the tool. Now let us talk about those modes in detail.
None Mode, will not do anything to your mobile. Selecting this mode means not allowing this tweak to make any changes to the settings of your phone.
Normal Mode, under this mode it will disable the exchange of cellular or any data online, when you will lock your screen. It will keep on activating them on every 15 minutes for receiving emails and notifications from all the applications on your iPhone.
Aggressive mode, under this mode it will everything that has been included in the previous mode but with longer gap of 45 minutes and if you have switched on Wi-Fi usage, then it will automatically kill edge and if Wi-Fi is ON but if it is not connected to any hot-stop then Wi-Fi will be disabled by this tool. After the battery backup reached below 15 percent, then it will automatically switch itself to Ultimate mode.
Ultimate mode, under this mode the only extra feature it will have is the permanent disabling of the radios and then you will have to enable them on your own.
Custom Mode, under this mode you will decide your own plan of saving the battery; you may decide which components of controls should be automatically controlled by this application and which components should be handled manually.
To make sure whether this application is working or not, you can select None as the mode and then watch the graph for few hours, then use any of the suitable mode and then match both graphs. You will definitely see that the graph will become steadier with lesser slope.
