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.

Among the features it offers:
Answer the call by gesture

Here is a small demonstration of the app in action:

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.
