Android Tips&Trick-Part 1

This tips and tricks is mainly for Android users which have OS V4.0 and above

1.Avoid task killers It is best to avoid task killers such as Advanced Task Killer. Android is designed to automatically pre-load certain applications, even if you don't load them yourself. If it starts to run low on memory, it will smartly unload the oldest running apps automatically. Manually killing tasks will only mean they get loaded in memory again. Task killers can make the phone slow, laggy, or drain battery life more quickly.

2.Bookmark a contact on your homescreen To bookmark a contact on your homescreen, long press on the home screen background and select Shortcuts. Then select Direct dial. If you call someone regularly this can be useful as you will have a shortcut to them handily placed on your homescreen 

3.Bookmark a web page on your homescreen To bookmark a website on your homescreen, go into your browser and find the bookmark of the page you want to create a shortcut for.  Then long press on the bookmark and select Add Shortcut to Home. If you regularly visit certain websites, this can be handy as you will have a shortcut to the site on your homescreen. 

4.Create folders to tidy your Apps If you find yourself with too many Apps on the homescreen, then you can create folders to organise them. To start, simply press and hold on an App and drag it over the top of another App. The App should change colour/shape. Then release your finger and the two Apps will be combined into a folder.  You can then drag more Apps into this folder using the same process. To give your folder a label, simply long press on the folder and you will be able to enter a name.

5.Double tap for a full stop (period) While typing emails or notes, you can simply tap the space key twice and the phone will insert a full stop / period
