One of the things we always suggest in our Tips & Tricks articles is to crank up animations to make your phone feel faster. It’s a very simple trick, but you have to enable the “Developer Options” to do it. The Developer Options is like a secret world for Android enthusiasts to do cool stuff. Not only can you speed up animations, but you can force all apps to do multi-window and much more. If you’re a savvy Android user you need to know these tricks. Enable Developer Options Developer Options have been around since Android 4.2, but they’ve been hidden in the same spot ever since. The good news is it’s easy to enable the options, and it works the same on pretty much every Android phone or tablet. The steps below should work on any device that has KitKat or above. The process may be slightly different, but you just need to find the “Build number.” Go to Settings > About phone/tablet (Some phones will have an extra step here. … [Read more...] about How to enable the secret Android Developer Options

Most apps originated on the i interface then got made half ass to work on Android. I have an android, and I have used some apps that my mom (who has an iPhone) has, and they suck on my phone... posted on 28 Apr 2011, 08:25 3 4. JeffdaBeat (unregistered) And the biggest thing is developers think folks on the iPhone are more likely to purchase apps. There was a survey on PA a few months back that showed developers put more work into The App Store because that's where the money is and Android is just kind of a side project. Google has to change this perception to get quality apps... posted on 28 Apr 2011, 08:33 4 5. protozeloz (Posts: 5396; Member since: 16 Sep 2010) devs will see the android market is a really profitable source, but it takes time and work... last few Google updates have being in concern for … [Read more...] about Comments for : Android Market to outgrow App Store in July?

Will we have to hold back to bring up the multitasking menu? Because that's fine and all but we already have the x to tap. I'm hoping, it will be that and like windows 8 and we can drag from above the screen to achieve this without going into the multitasking screen as well. posted on 02 Dec 2013, 09:08 3 10. eisenbricher (Posts: 973; Member since: 09 Aug 2012) I guess yes, that would be the way. And flicking down is more intuitive than tapping on that small 'x' icon. posted on 02 Dec 2013, 09:53 2 24. cezarepc (Posts: 718; Member since: 23 Nov 2012) True. On a tab that small X works fine but on my 4.5" screen (Lumia 925) it takes a little aim to get it spot on. posted on 02 Dec 2013, 12:52 1 44. elitewolverine (Posts: 5192; Member since: 28 Oct 2013) i agree, though … [Read more...] about Comments for : Windows Phone getting flick-to-close, apps on the memory card and built-in file browser
