Air Call Accept is a new Android app that allows you to answer the phone without touching it

Air Gestures on all Android devices

If you have used or tested the Samsung Galaxy S4, you may know the feature Air Call Accept that allows you to accept calls without touching the phone. If you do not have top of the range Samsung phone just be envious: this function can now be imported even on your Android smartphone. Air Call Accept is a new Android app that allows you to answer the phone without touching it. You can simply pass the buck on the phone to accept the call.

Using the proximity sensor of the phone, the device detects when the hand passes over the screen or when you place the phone to your ear. So when you receive a call on your phone, you can simply wave his hand over the phone to accept it.

So what is the real purpose of the app? The app is especially useful for those who are often receive calls while driving (with a Bluetooth headset, I recommend!). In fact it avoids tinkering with the phone trying to press the correct button, allowing you to focus only on the road. You just need to quickly move a hand to receive the call.

The app has a paid version that also allows you to reject calls and turn on the speakerphone when you receive the call.

How to move application from Galaxy S4 to Micro SD card?

Shortly after the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the internal storage space offered by the device had generated much controversy because it appears that the device does not offer users about 9 GB of the 16 GB available. Something that was not very dramatic as the Micro SD card may very well take over for storing media files. For cons, the lack of space was quickly felt when we started to install some necessary applications, and the memory was quickly saturated after installing some good games on the device.

A few weeks ago, Samsung has released an update to include some applications to move to the memory card (see our article on this subject: the first update of the Samsung Galaxy S4 to move applications to a memory card).

You can then sort your applications by size for better visibility

Yet moving application is not easy, because it turns out some files related to the application that can not be moved to the memory card. Indeed, if we take for example the case of the Amazon Kindle App application. Once the application is moved to the memory card, it also tried to move the e-book files on the card via a dedicated application, and it is the Samsung Galaxy S4 that cannot find the file just moved. Anyway, moving applications to the external memory card can save you so many GB of storage on your device.

Thus, to move an application, you must go first in “Settings.” Then you can press the tab “more” at the top right of the screen as you can see on the image captured below:

Samsung has released an update to include some applications to move to the memory card

By tapping the “storage” menu, your Galaxy S4 calculate for a moment the memory used by your system, and the remaining memory. Once you have an idea of the remaining memory, you can press back and go to the application manager. You can then sort your applications by size for better visibility.

How to move an application from the Galaxy S4

At this stage you can decide about the application you want to move. Once you press the application icon, you will see a button that will prompt you to move it to your memory card. If this button is grayed out, the application can not be run from your Micro SD card, otherwise you can move applications to the external storage card.

With Schemes, the client can send messages through Twitter, Facebook, SMS or via e-mail service, Gmail

Schedule emails, SMS or social networking on Android

Have you ever needed to send an email to a specific time and you have been impossible? Like say good morning to your followers on Facebook or Twitter at a certain time? Or, do you want to send an SMS to a contact for her birthday and always forgets you? If you have a phone with Android all this can be solved by using the application Schemes.

With Schemes, the client can send messages through Twitter, Facebook, SMS or via e-mail service, Gmail

It is difficult to always be available to send a text message (SMS), email messages or through social networks. It is quite possible that the time indicated for this procedure while you forget it. Hence, there are some solutions for these cases. For Android platform there is a free application called Schemes, available for download on Google Play.

Once downloaded the application on the smartphone, you only need to enter the account data to be used. With Schemes, the client can send messages through Twitter, Facebook, SMS or via e-mail service, Gmail. Once data is entered in the accounts, the application is ready to be used and programmed.

The screen where you create the texts to be sent later, has a clean and very intuitive interface: you only have to choose the services that are going to come into play-you can use the previous four at a time. Place the recipient as if it were an email, write the text, and you program the day and time where you have to leave for your destination.

But you must take into account some limitations such that if the user normally works with different user accounts, both email and social media, it must go in and out to switch accounts; Schemes only works with an account. To get in or out of them, the user must press the “Menu” main settings appear where you can leave the accounts that are being used at that moment.

Also keep in mind that the application will only work with Google email service, GMail; other accounts on services like Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, corporate email, etc. are not supported by this new feature.

Now, what do you get with Schemes? Let the Android device becomes all a work tool and make the user do their work on necessary day and time. On the other hand, if you do not want to have any of the accounts (Twitter or Facebook) abandoned for many hours, or you want to be timely in sending a greeting here you can enter SMS, Schemes can be a good choice. Similarly, in Google Play there are other options like TweetCaster or Buffer which will undertake to the Timeline of active user, through its programming service messages. These two options are also free.
