The first beta MoDaCo.SWITCH lands on the Galaxy S4

MoDaCo.SWITCH is a bit special ROM. Not only does it allow to switch on the fly between the two ROMs simplest way, but it also shares data with each other. A real time-saver and ergonomics.

So far, this ROM was only available on HTC One, MoDaCo.SWITCH now sees with a version of Galaxy S4 following a successful Indiegogo campaign. The first beta comes with several applications including:

SwitchUp: which allows you to search and retrieve updates.
Switch companion: the companion being developed, which allow you to configure certain aspects of switch.

Switch which allows to pass from TouchWiz Google Experience simply by pressing the application icon and select “yes.” It can hardly be simpler, but when in doubt you can find a video of Paul O’Brien, the developer of MoDaCo.SWITCH, presenting the main features.

Finally, for those who are interested in land and MoDaCo.SWITCH, it will take its troubles patiently. Indeed, beta 1 is currently only available to participants in the Indiegogo fundraising campaign. It is quite possible that this is open to everyone, no specifications have been published and therefore we can not know if it will happen and how long. By cons, if you had participated in the campaign, you should have received an explanatory email with a download link.

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:

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.

Whatsapp Brings Important New Features For Windows Phone

The messaging application WhatsApp is generating buzz. The question is which is not always for the better. This time it is a supposed list of new features that are coming for the version of Windows Phone. The dissonant note is that users of this platform take two months waiting for an update to improve this communication tool. And not for the news, which are quite interesting, but because they are using a tool that compared to other platforms is below about features and performance.

the trajectory of WhatsApp for Windows Phone are awaited and useful options

This new list has leaked from an Italian website where supposedly a beta tester, a person responsible for tests the performance of products in development, in this case of WhatsApp, discussed the innovations this version bring. A version with the number and quality of new products is expected to raise the number of version 3.0.

The first is an improvement in terms of the user interface, i.e. at the interface and visual appearance of the application.

Something that would come from the hand of an agent code rewriting to avoid having to use the music section and improve the performance of the implementation.

It is also possible to enable users to call through the mobile phone and the Internet (VoIP) from the profile in the talks.

New emoticons to use in conversations. Perhaps the new selection that users of Android and enjoyed for several months and that they inherited from the of iPhone.

The emoticons also be reflected in the live tiles or medium sized tiles placed on the desktop of the terminal.

The rewrite and improvements also allow open the application from a notification does not take too long as to date, losing several seconds to load. According to leaks, it will be like in Android, virtually instantaneous.

Alongside these developments would also include a function to retrieve a backup application installed nothing. This means retrieve stored messages daily if uninstall or lose the application for any reason. As long as you do not format or delete all files in the terminal, of course.

The new design results in a user viewing the images larger, taking over the terminal screens.

Finally, you know that in the next version it will be possible to delete the files received to avoid filling the memory.

News that may be basic for other platforms but that, given the trajectory of WhatsApp for Windows Phone, are awaited and useful options. Still remain one more customization and proper functioning of the application. Issues hopefully improved in this release have not yet arrived but that is expected in the coming weeks.

Facebook Could Present Its Own User Interface For Android Phones

On April 4, Facebook will teach something new related to the operating system of Google, Android. For some time, it has been rumored on several occasions that the company Mark Zuckerberg was thinking to launch its own smartphone market. However, in the event that the company is expected to show social network a new user interface for green android mobile platform.

The great social network Facebook being left behind. He knows that the mobile terminals are a great springboard to pair this platform, and more, if it is the most used operating system worldwide with more than 80 percent of the market share. Moreover, it is not the first time he has worked with some mark in the industry, as is the case with HTC.

April 4 plans was made known to the relevant specialized media sending invitation

April 4 plans was made known to the relevant specialized media sending invitation, which can be the slogan: “Come see our new home on Android.” Hence, the speculation has not been long in coming and is betting on a new user custom interface-layer that would be based on Android.

However, there are others who are favoring the presentation of its own smartphone market and compete with the big boys. Mind you, it would not be the only company that would start in this market: Amazon has also confirmed that this year they will come with a smart phone and could have as its main argument great service platform today, and enjoy the different tablets.

Still, the proposal would be the most logical one: an interface based on the services it offers full integration with Facebook and all. Also, the website TechCrunch doesn’t not ruled out the possibility that during the event next Thursday, a new smartphone made an appearance. And, the Taiwanese HTC could have much to do in this regard.

On the other hand, it has also considered the possibility that it is a single mode application launcher as those already in the Google Play store. But again TechCrunch believes that the scope of this paper intends to go further. And that goal would certainly be able to achieve the release of its own terminal. Yes, present your operating system is the first step.

But what do you especially should not do Facebook with this release? Perhaps most important would be to have a fully functional phone with green android platform and don not restrict the installation of third party applications. This is something that will surely not get the phone to launch Amazon along this year, the company’s practice is to present a modified version on their computers, which only rotates about its services. Now, all is conjecture and Facebook reveal all the mystery in a few days. What is clear is that the company will bet for a more technological social life.

How to Enable Google Now on Samsung Galaxy S3
