The Secret to Using your Smartphone Like a Pro


Your smartphone is capable of so much more than you might think. Hidden inside, deep down in the darkest corners, are possibilities just waiting to see the light of day. These can make your life a whole lot simpler and you will see your smartphone in a whole new way. Impressing your friends and family will be a bonus too! 

Use your Smartphone as a Scanner


Ever needed to scan and send a document to someone, but the only problem is you’re nowhere near a scanner? Thanks to the ever increasing camera quality in Smartphones these days and access to apps for just about anything, there’s no need to worry anymore, because your smartphone can now be your scanner. Simply find yourself an app that can do the job, like Genius Scan or CamScanner and you’ll be all set in no time. 

What’s that Song Called?


You’re out and about, an amazing song you’ve never heard before comes on, you dance your heart out and realise; you need that song! Just ask your phone. Google Now and Siri can both respond to the voice command "what song is this?” which makes finding that song easy. If you would rather use an app and save your voice, try Shazam or MusicMatch. These music recognition apps will not only identify the song in seconds, they will also give you the option to get the song and its lyrics. 

If Found Please Return to…


People are constantly losing their phones and on the off chance a Good Samaritan finds it, how would they know who this locked device belongs to? If only there was a way to have your details visible even on your lock screen. Well there is, because Android and iOS have you covered! The option to add your information to your lock screen can be found in "Settings” for Android users and in "Health” for iOS users. 

Smart Phone, Smart Remote


As if there weren’t enough amazing things you could do with your phone, then add this to your list. Smartphones can be used to control a range of devices with the right app installed. From your television to your computer, apps like Unified Remote can do it all for you, with just your smartphone. Loving your smartphone a bit more now, aren’t you? Of course you are! 

In a Hurry? Here’s How to Quickly Charge up


We’ve all been there before, needing to do something extremely important with our smartphone, like beating that stubborn Candy Crush level, but the dreaded low battery stops us in our tracks. Well sure, we could put our beloved smartphones on charge and wait, but that could take forever or at least feel like it. Next time just switch to airplane mode and then start charging. It will charge much quicker and you’ll be well on your way to beating that pesky level in no time.
