New Google Photos App : Leaked Images

Posted By: Arin Dey - May 26, 2015
Google is launching an amazing photo app very soon. While using this photos app, users will be greeted with the awesome pinwheel animation similar shape what we see in Google Photos option. Splash screens aren't traditionally used on Android because they aren't strictly necessary, but Google has been having a lot of fun with icon motion lately, which may explain its presence. Next, of course, is the first-run experience. As with most Google apps these days, Photos explains itself up front in a series of friendly, animated illustrations. The user can then fiddle with some backup settings before being ushered to a few more illustrations.

New Google Photos App : Leaked Images

Google’s senior vice president for products, Sundar Pichai, was quoted by Venture Beat as saying the company would be looking at ways to improve user experience when it comes to photographs.

“Photos are a big use case,” Pichai said. “So we are going to say this is the stream now.”

Most of the app's functionality is given away in the above screens. This app will let users search for specific people, animals, or objects, back up photos automatically, and take care of general photo management. Addition to all of these this app gets a revised interface with several "views" to choose from. Users can see their photos sorted by day or month, or a "comfortable view" which tiles photos by day in a staggered grid sort of like Google+ photo albums on the web do now.

Lets see how it appears once it is live.

Clickdrive has officially announced that they are going to launch “a device placing the intelligence of cloud computing into the driver’s seat” by incorporating with data analysis to create a reliable, more efficient and intelligent driving experience. Sutheran has developed Clickdrive to create the world’s first device to be entirely dedicated to driving along with business partner Rishi Saraswat.
Mark Sutheran who tried to build up such device long back in 2004 but had flopped for poor maintenance. Sutheran stated “We all saw the revolution in mobile technology; Wi-Fi, and high-speed networks become ubiquitous,” “But I could not understand why our cars are mostly no more connected than the Ford Model-T?”

Sutheran left his job in 2012 to develop Clickdrive and advance automotive technology for cloud-connected service. 

How it works? 

The device will be directly plugged in to an automobile, which enables motorists to download a number of apps to enhance their driving experience and given them information readily available when their hands are on the wheel. It means that it can be connected to iPad or any android device which will show the readings.

It was also heard that “So far, the Clickdrive team has worked out a strong prototype that works — and works well. Clickdrive outperforms existing smart driving technology by up to 500 percent.”

This project will be funded by a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Till date they have managed to raise $4,000  out of the $100,000.

How To Increase Android Device Performance And Battery Life With Greenify

Posted By: Poketors - September 25, 2013
No introduction is required for the massively popular mobile operating system Android which offers many benefits for both developers and end-users.

A lot of android apps are there and the features can be great and sometimes offer a completely satisfactory user experience, but need proper maintenance else it can also slow down your device and drain your battery. If your Android device has multiple apps installed, it may lead to slow performance.

Greenify is a free Android app which can increase your Android device performance and battery life. 

What Is Greenify :

Greenify helps you to identify the apps which hang or make your device run slow and also gives you the option to put them into a hibernated state. Once hibernated, the apps won’t be able to start background services unless you start the app again. It means few background services will run on your device which leads to better CPU and RAM usage resulting an improved system performance and longer battery life. 

How To Use Greenify :

1. Login to Google Play and install the "Greenify" app.
2. Once it is installed, launch the app.
2. Press “+” and choose the apps.


Greenify shows you all the apps that are scheduled to run in the future as well as apps that will slow down your device. The only constraint with the free Greenify app is that it doesn't greenify system apps. If you want to do that you have to go with the paid donation version.


Greenify offers you all the benefits and you should choose apps wisely. If you try to greenify apps like alarm clocks or instant messengers, these won't work as “intended” anymore. The alarm clock won’t wake you up and you’ll not receive notifications if somebody sends you a message via instant messenger.


Available Versions :

Greenify is available in a free and a $2.99 donation versions. With some extra features, donation version includes greenifying system apps and providing notifications after hibernating an app. Initially you should try with the free version. Later on, $2.99 donation version would be helpful if you want to scan your apps and get a better system performance and battery life.

Share your experience once you try the Greenify app.

iOS 7 : Inspired By Android And Windows Phone

Posted By: Poketors - September 23, 2013
The new OS from Apple made it full of fundamental changes. If you have iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 you mish have upgraded to iOS 7 and if not go for it now. Feature wise it is the best iOS version that Apple has ever introduced with some issues for battery life which can be saved by following some tweaks.

When we say iOS7 is inspired by Android and Windows Phone, then there should be some reason which made us to write this post. If you have an Android device or a Windows Phone then you should be aware of some features which is similar to iOS 7.


Apple used to have skeuomorphism design which helps in turning on the faux glass effect and with this they used real world symbols giving a 3D look. Once Microsoft made their logos and operating system apps look like 2D and very flat, Google introduced a flatter used interface afterwards and released Ice Cream Sandwich. In a similar way Apple also followed the same concept and they removed the skeuomorphism design  with all the decorations and moved to flatter and sleeker designs with apps.


Here are the iOS 7 features which resembles with Android And Windows Phone :

1. Control Center : 

Similar to Android gadgets, iOS7 also introduced a easy approach where you can easily switch on or off Wi-Fi/data connection or change brightness by opening the notification shade by swiping down from top of the screen.

2.  Thumbnail View : 

Thumbnail view was introduced by WebOS in 2009 and late on this feature was adopted by Google Android. Even Microsoft stepped into the same method implementation of multitasking in Windows Phone.  Apple also shows thumbnail view of open apps when multitasking in going on. It means it is similar to the Android where we find apps keep running at background.

3. Swipe On Lockscreen : 

Like Android phone, now you can swipe at any area on iOS 7 device to unlock it. Earlier it used to be there but in a particular area. 

4. App Updates : 

If you want to change the setting for app update automatically, Android allows you to do that when phone is connected to internet. Apple has also added similar feature.

5. Dynamic Wallpaper : 

You can select from multiple dynamic wallpapers of faux 3D. This is similar to Live Wallpaper in Android.

Even it is having multiple useful features, it lacks in some areas where Android is ahead. Here are the aspects where iOS 7 stays behind Android :

1. Fixed App Usage : 

Unlike Android, you can't change the web browser in iOS 7 because it is fixed and you have to use Safari as Apple wants it to be used. On the other hand, Android has the option to choose the default browser from Chrome to Opera or any other.

2. Third Party Apps : 

Apple is very much strict when it comes to device security and that is the reason iOS 7 has very few approved apps which can be used. On the other hand, Android has plenty of third party apps which can be used to share information. 

3. Widgets : 

In Android widgets are used and useful also. iOS 7 has no provision for widgets.

Apple has already made huge changes to iOS 7 and hopefully it will be able to fix the ongoing issues and will work on the pitfalls. Share your experience with iOS 7 and comment.
