How to Add a Computer Like Recycle Bin to your Android Smartphone

We as a human we make mistakes, and we regret it later. Doing mistake is normal for everyone of us. This is what makes us human. Can you tell me what is the most common mistake every individual does in this era? Any guess? Ok, I am answering this as well. The most common mistake for this generation is deleting files accidentally. We use phones to store various files, images, audio, in a nutshell, our whole memory on the phone. Can you imagine what you would do if you accidentally delete the last photo of your late grandparents? It is quite heartbreaking, right?

I am not scaring you; I am telling you the truth. In this point, you might be thinking of having a recycle bin for your phone like you do on your computer. You wish you had that functionality on your phone so that you could just restore from the bin. This is what this article is all about. I just figured out a way fo adding recycle bin to your Android smartphone to restore all your deleted files.

How to add a computer like recycle bin to your Android smartphone

There is no inbuilt method of adding a recycle bin to the Android system. But, we have some apps that do the same thing. The best app that I found is the dumpster. This app works exactly like a recycle bin to store all the files you delete from your phone. With this, you can view and restore all the files that you deleted from your phone.

  1. The very first thing you need is to download the app. This app is available for free in the Google Play Store.
  2. Once you install the app open the app.
  3. If your phone runs on Android 6.0 or above like me, then you have to grant permission to the app. If you are running 5.0 or below then just skip this step.
  4. Now you are ready. This app has lot of settings, but the default one seems to work fine with every device.
  5. If you don’t want to mess with the setting, then you are ok. Your recycle bin is now enabled.
  6. Everytime you delete anything it just moves those files to the app. From where you can view all your deleted files for free. In case you see anything you have deleted by mistake you just simply tap the restore to restore the file.
  7. If you want to play around the settings, then you can mess around the setting to customize the settings according to your need.

This is also worth noticing that the app can only recover those files which are deleted after you installed the dumpster. The files you have deleted before the app, this won’t help you to restore anything.

This is how you add a recycle bin to your smartphone. Let me know what you think about the app in your comments.

How to Save and Share your Favorite Places on Google Map?

Google map is one of the most used mobile maps around the world. If you are using Google map for a while, you will know how Google Map is transforming itself over the few years. It is now becoming your tourist guide from being just a map. It navigates you around the new city, shows some interesting that you can do in any place. It also helps you find important places like restaurant, ATM, Gas Station, police station and much more. You even get recommendations based on the places you visit.

It has evolved a lot, and we are seeing some cool features being added now and then to improve its usability. Recently Google has added a new feature to the Google Map which lets you save any places to any of the pre-made lists, or you create your own list. Even you can share your list with any of your friends, family members or colleague directly.

Google Map

This feature is now available with updated version of Google Map on both Android and iOS. The web version of Google Map also has this same feature.

How to Save and Share Places on Google Map

Saving and sharing any place on Google Map is easy as you would expect with every Google product.

The very first step would be updating your Google Map app as the new feature is only available on the updated version of the app.

Once you are done updating your app, simply open the app and search for any place you want to save.

Tapping on the place will bring the Google Plus page of the place with all the reviews and photos about the place. The new thing you will notice now is the new “Save Option.”

Tapping on the Save option will bring a small menu with some pre-made lists like “Favorites,” “Want to Go” and “Starred Places.” You can add any of the options, or you can even create your own list. If you decide to add a new list just tap on “New list” option. Name anything to this list and save it.

To access all your saved places click on “Your places” inside the menu. Here you will find all your saved places according to your list.

Whenever you are ready to share any of your lists just tap on the share icon situated inside the list and select any of the desired methods of sharing.

Another cool feature is the “follow” feature. Imagine you shared a list with your friend and if s/he click on the follow icon s/he will get update whenever you add a new place to that list. This saves you from sharing the same list over and over.

Google also made a video showing how it works. Here I am embedding that same video for illustration purpose.

This is a great feature by Google to improve already improved Google map. What do you think about this feature? Is it worth sharing?

ClearlyDrunk has a fast connection which is suitable for online streaming. As ClearlyDrunk gives all the connection over SSL, you don’t have to worry about the privacy.

VPN is another free and great way to access all the blocked entertainment websites. VPN is also easy to use as you just have to pick a desired server location from the VPN interface and you will be connected to the website you want to access.

  • VPN for Computer:

There are many VPN service available both free and paid. All the paid servers are fast, but if you are on the free plan, you won’t get that speed you wanted to. Not all VPN is not like that there are some good one with speed. If you are on a computer, then consider downloading Hola extension for your Google Chrome browser or Firefox browser. This will give you the speed that you wanted to access blocked entertainment sites. Or if possible download Opera browser for your computer because it has built-in VPN.

  • VPN for Smartphone

If you are on your phone and using the WiFi network that blocked all the entertainment websites, then I suggest you use VPN for your smartphone. Opera VPN is best VPN service that is available for free for both Android and iOS based smartphones. No need to pay any VPN provider as Opera gives you the free VPN with best possible speed.

Proxy is another great website that you might be interested in as it also helps to unblock all the blocked sites for free. There are hundreds of proxy server available for both free and paid use. Hide My Ass is one of the best free proxy servers with the speed that is perfect for streaming.

Apple Sold More Phone than Samsung and Became the Top Smartphone Maker in the World

When it comes to selling the smartphone, Samsung leads the market by selling the most number of smartphones in the world. This thing is continued fro several years up until now. Recently a report published by a research firm Strategy Analytics which suggests that the Apple is now leading the market by selling most number of smartphones in the last quarter of 2016. Samsung holds this record, but now it seems like Apple is taking over the market. If you look into the report, you will find that the Apple has sold 78.3 million phones whereas the Samsung has sold 77.5 million phones.

Samsung vs Apple

The main reason behind the fall of Samsung’s device is the Note 7. Samsung’s Note 7 was one of the best phones of 2016, but unfortunately, it had some issue with the battery which forced the company to recall all the phone that they sold in that period. Later Samsung discontinued the Note 7 which made a negative impact on the brand Samsung. This incident helped Apple to sell such huge number of phones.

report

That was just the report about the last quarter of 2016. If you take the whole year as the example, then Samsung still leads the market following by Apple and Huawei at 2nd and 3rd place respectively. In the year 2016 Samsung has sold 309.4 million phone whereas the Apple has sold 215.4 million phone. After Samsung and Apple, Huawei is at the 3rd number for both last quarters of 2016 and for the year 2016 as a whole. Huawei maintained to sell 44.9 million in the 4th quarter of 2016 and 138.8 million smartphones in the year 2016.

The same goes with the market share. In the last quarter of 2016, the Apple took the top position by holding a market share of 17.8% where the Samsung was in 2nd with 17.7% market share. But for the year 2016 Samsung was on top with 20.8% market share and the Apple was in 2nd with just 14.5% market share. This is also notable that Samsung is releasing some models in a year with a price range in all different budget. But the Apple only sold 3 model in the year 2016, and all of them were in top budget only.

The smartphone industry is moving very fast, and it will be interesting to see who lead the year 2017.

Turn Off Safe Mode on Android

Android system syncs into safe mode when our phones get infected with any potentially harmful app or malware. This process helps us to remove that app by entering into the basic system so that all the other things don’t get affected in any way.

But once we enter into the “Safe Mode” maximum of us could not get an easy escape from it and every time we start the device, it starts within safe mode even after we disable or delete the app.

How to turn off the safe mode in Android

Let’s have a step by step guide on how to disable safe mode on Android easily without any hassle.

Here are the steps:

  • Check the notification panel: first of all, have a look on the notification panel because some moderated Android OS have a safe mode option on the panel, and a simple tap on that option can enable and disable the option. If you have got that, then you are done, otherwise check the other options here in below.
  • Reboot the device: One of the best processes to get the phone back into normal mode. Press the power button and get the phone restarted once. If the phone is back in its normal Android version, then the job is done. Otherwise, you may have to burn a lot of energies.
  • Press Power and Volume down Button: Another useful way to get rid of the safe mode. Press the power button and the volume down button simultaneously. It will reboot your device within a second, and many users reported that it helped them a lot to get a way out of the safe mode.
  • Remove the battery and reattach: if possible (if your smartphone battery is detachable then o a trick- remove the battery and reattach it. Start the phone and see whether the safe mode is gone or not. In maximum cases, users got relief from the safe mode.
  • Uninstall the newly installed app: Try to find out the app which is doing the mischief and kicking the system into the safe mode all the time. Uninstall the app immediately. If you can’t recognize the app, then uninstall all the newly installed apps on your mobile and restart by pressing power and volume down button together.
  • Perform factory reset: Doing this action you can fix almost every problem related to the software. Before doing this don’t forget to get a backup of your data and important things. Then go to the “settings” and perform the “factory settings.” It will remove all the apps installed.
  • The last step will erase all the things and make the phone as it was got the first time when you received it. Remember you can’t get all the data and files once it’s performed.
