Christ Google is so out of touch. No one wants your ugly ass knockoff iOS emojis, give us the blobs. I want the blobs. And imma get em too cause https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stevenschoen.emojiswitcher&hl=en has my back.
BubbleUPnP. This app is simply fantastic! You can do so many things. I'll give you one scenario. I don't like having my music collection all over the place (Phone, PC, Laptop). So I store it in the central location (Dropbox) and then using BubbleUPnP, I can stream to either the phone or foobar on the Windows machines. I save space and there is no needless duplication. EDIT: Also forgot to mention that this is the only app that displays artwork over the stream.
I disagree about it being unintuitive. The gesture feels very natural and "physical." In fact, I used an app to add some similar gestures to my S7 out of curiosity, and I'm loving it.
Edit: This App
It looks hip but does it actually bring practicality to the table? It may be more functional than iPhone X's implementation but that had a point and no soft bezels. Google's way is gestures only for the sake of it. I don't see how it can be faster than touching once in any situation. And as someone who uses Allinonegestures maybe I'm biased. Still being on OS level means less latency I guess.
I don't think many people know about that. It uses phone's accelerometer and proximity sensor to wake up and sleep the phone. It's pretty easy to use and saves your phone's sleep/wake button.
> Probably any of the warehouse employees, since they all have barcode scanners on their machines and trucks.
Or you know, anyone with a phone.
> Pretty normal stuff.
Not for a VPN app supposedly about security, there should be nothing included that isn't absolutely essential.
In fact, it'd be better to allow users to export .openvpn files and import into their own application - such as this one, which has no bloat and is open source.
Sorry but Facebook and 'secure VPN' will never go in the same sentence.
Just read the 1 star reviews. It is obvious the majority of them are jokes. (even when you sort the reviews by helpfulness) There are even comments trying to dissuade people from moving to iOS, as if this is some sort of political issue or something...
Gravity Screen on off
I can never get enough of this app. No longer need to use your on/off button, like a feature you'd pay a lot for, for free.
If you have root, use Emoji Switcher - this will allow you to see the emoji other people are using. I'm hoping that this paired with an updated Google Keyboard app will let non-nexus users see and use the emoji from Unicode 8.0
Edit: Like 3 people all said the same thing lol
thats the terms of service, you agreed to that but apple locks you into their ecosystem of overpriced bullshit and makes it as hard as possible to move to another platform, on andr9id there is literally an app to Move to IOS
Might I suggest All In One Gestures (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phoenixstudios.aiogestures) from the play store? I have swiping from the right edge of my screen set to back, and it's been working great for me, especially since the capacitive back button is on the left side of the navigation bar.
Use the open source OpenVPN app with your providers ovpn files. Works great for me. Don't see the need to install proprietary apps.
Also there is no such thing as a truly free vpn. If you are not paying with money you are probably paying with your information.

I use Smart Launcher.
I absolutely love having only one screen. I have nine icons arranged in a nice circle.
Each icon will open a different app if I double tap it. This allows me to open up 18 apps which cover the vast majority of my phone usage while not looking cluttered. For example starting at the bottom left:
It might be confusing to other people. I've been using it for well over a year without changing it so it's second nature to me. I rarely have to go searching for apps in the drawer and when I do, Smart Launcher makes it super easy and very fast even on my slightly outdated phone.
Not sure any reddit app does that but you can use a VPN Client that will only route certain apps through the vpn. OpenVPN for Android does this.
Barcode scanner only requires camera permission. It's light weight, fast, fairly feature complete and been around since the stone ages.
You can have a quick toggle for your OpenVPN connection if you use the superior OpenVPN for Android app instead of the official one. Supports way more modern Android features and is much nicer to use.
Here's a screenshot of it in use on my phone.
This should help =) no root needed
Just download the app, go to the far left tab, enable the hard keys, a pop up will come up to enable it in the system settings so do that, go back and hit the + button, and add the volume up and down keys, then set them how you like =)
> "sleep as Android" [...] requires a third party qr code reader app and those almost always spam your phone all day.
It works with "Barcode Scanner" by ZXing, which is the same barcode scanner that Google Authenticator automatically prompts to install if you try to scan a QR code. It's safe to use.
Apple's Move to iOS app for Android worked perfectly for me. It moved my text and phone call histories, as well as contacts, photos, etc.
However, AFAIK, it needs to be done during the initial setup of your iPhone. You can't use it to copy your phone/text histories after the iPhone is setup.
If you want to switch between emojis for different devices (including iOS emojis), and you have root, check out Emoji Switcher . Works perfectly for me.
Use the open source OpenVPN app with your (paid) providers ovpn files. Works great. Don't see the need to install proprietary apps.
Also there is no such thing as a truly free vpn. If you are not paying with money you are probably paying with your information.
Bubbleupnp is the best app I have used for sending anything to Chromecast that doesn't already have it's own app. Supports casting local media, media from local or remote DLNA servers, and a multitude of cloud services. Even supports transcoding of media not natively supported by Chromecast.
I'd suggest on Android users take a look at "OpenVPN for Android" by Arne Schwabe. It's is Open Source, and gets patches frequently.
Ich benutze BaconReader. Hab auch schon viele andere Reddit apps probiert, werd aber mit keiner so richitg warm und greife dann wieder auf den Speckleser zurück
Gravity Screen - On/Off
Basically turns the screen on/off for you. It can use any combination of the proximity, motion, and orientation sensors to turn the screen on/off for you.
It doesn't jive with everyone's "workflow" with their own phone, but I'd hate not having it on my phone. Saves plenty of wear and tear on the power button, and my fingers/wrists.
> Most apps are just awful when it comes to QR readers. Haven't seen a good one yet.
Barcode Scanner has worked perfectly for years.
Smart Launcher 3 - by far my favorite launcher of all time. Automatically get a killer home screen and organized app drawer in seconds.
Apple's "move to iOS" app that basically transfers your data to an iPhone if you're switching over. App itself works just fine, but people are bombarding it with bad reviews because they think Apple and iOS are bad. Funny thing is, you have to install it first before you can review it...
All In One Gestures
Swipe from the edges/corners of your screen to perform custom actions like back, recent apps, notification shade, screen off, screenshot, scroll to top, play/pause, launch specific app.. the list goes on.
You can also remap all hardware buttons (including earphone buttons/Pressy) & capacitive buttons to do those things. Buttons also have a long press setting. Absolutely useful but hardware customizations don't work when the screen is off.
Das liegt daran, dass die kommerzielle Nutzung von Apples Emojis an Apple gezahlt werden muss. WhatsApp hat das immer getan, aber ist Facebook jetzt eventuell zu teuer geworden nachdem sie WhatsApp übernommen haben. Deshalb hat auch jeder Hersteller eigene Emojis; das ist am günstigsten so.
Mit Root-Rechten kann man aber hiermit fürs Betriebssystem und hiermit für WhatsApp die Emojis ändern. Mache ich schon immer so seit ich Android habe, finde alle anderen auch hässlich.
Definitely going to check out the BuildProp editor, using a Note 4 currently and the DPI is so high it feels like a phone made for the elderly (even with the smallest text).
While I don't have nearly as long of a list of apps for customization, Emoji Switcher (root required) was one of my biggest incentives to root my phone. This allows you to switch the theme of your emoji to iOS, stock Android, and a few others. With most of my friends having iPhones, and my phone not natively supporting all of the newest emojis, I got really fed up with not seeing all emojis. This app fixed that and now I don't have to live with ugly emojis or crossed out boxes in place of emojis that aren't supported by my phone.
Do you mean this one? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stevenschoen.emojiswitcher&hl=en
If so, what bugs are you experiencing? I've been using this app for a long time and it's been working perfectly.
How must then Apple feel https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apple.movetoios
Just ignore these types of reviews, they cant really harm your rating on the long run (unless you get thousands of them like Apple)
Haven't seen anyone mention it, but I bought BubbleUPnP when Chromecast first released as it was one of the first to cast local stuff I think. but I've been using it since then flawlessly. I also use it to stream to my ps4. the license costs a couple bucks but the devs deserve it. really great product with fairly regular updates.
It's not a feature so much as an app that works but I fuckin love Gravity Screen.
It basically lets you set all kinds of parameters to wake the screen by orientation, motion or proximity. It only uses a few percentage points of your battery per day and makes it so I never have to hit the power button.
Lots of people who see my phone wake up as soon as I pull it out of my pocket or flip it over have asked me how I do it. I tell them magic, but for you guys I'll make an exception.
You don't need root for either of these.
You download a launcher and then you will set it to be the "default" launcher instead of whatever the phone came with.
The settings are within the menu of that particular launcher and allow you change basically anything:
All of this is through adjusting the settings from within the app. You will inevitably spend a lot of time playing with settings.
I use Smart Launcher because it excels at easy access to my apps while still looking nice.
Reddit's app is shit, same with the default website.
Bacon Reader Android
Bacon Reader iPhone
I use this all the time. It also has a windows server that can transcode on the fly to play videos whose audio codecs aren't supported by Chromecast.
Smartlauncher is what I use.
I turn off the categories in the app drawer, hide all the things I don't want them to click on, and set it to the circle of icons on the home screen. Then I increase the size of the icons as much as it fits. After that I use one of the app password apps to put a password on the Play Store. And long press the home screen and lock icons. It's pretty beginner friendly at that point.
Most people only want a few things. Phone, Messages, Mail, Browser, YouTube, Camera, Maps, maybe Calendar and a date/time/weather widget is like icing.
You can set Smartlauncher to open Camera on a single tap and Gallery on a double tap of the same icon. Mail on a single tap, Messages in a double tap of the message icon.
So even the preacher who wanted to have access to his Bible app and Pandora, everything fit on the circle. I generally put the more relevant app as a double tap, because he won't forget to double tap Calendar to get to the bible.
Not sure if you can do by calling customer care. But you can block numbers based on area code by using apps like truecaller...
Adding link on how to block using truecaller.
If you can, hold off. There'll be new iPhones announced in September, and the 2nd gen of a device (IE. The new iPhone X style) is always a vast improvement, and there'll be a couple of screen sizes to pick from.
When you do move, Move to iOS will be your best friend.
I don't think nav button remapping requires root. Apps do it via Accessibility. The OG remapping app is All In One Gestures but I've found it to be unreliable on Nougat.
I did discover Button Mapper recently and it's a well designed, well maintained and sophisticated app for sure. I'll stick with it since it allows you to map an action to a Volume button double press.
Explanation of the differences: http://ics-openvpn.blinkt.de/FAQ.html#faq_androids_clients_title
Use the open source one(OpenVPN for Android) because open source code is nice for stuff like this, it also seems to get more updates or at least updates that mentions the vulnerabilities they fix (CVE-2017-7508 for example).
If you have Android, you can still do that by using this app (no root required). After installing, launch the app and go to the 'Hard Keys' tab then set the desired function for long presses on the volume buttons.
The only slight inconvenience is that the screen has to be on or nothing will happen. So if I want to play the next track, I have to press the power button first to turn on the screen then press and hold the + volume button to skip to the next track.
de.blinkt.openvpn is the best one.
It's the one we recommend at r/OpenVPN, it's opensource, material-design, yadi, yada.
Some people reported issues with password-protected certs on the "official" closed-source client. Dunno if they were fixed.
> If you are on Mobil (and I personally always am), you can't see the sidebar (I think that you can find it in the upper right corner of the screen).
Yup, on BaconReader at least you click on the menu icon top right and there's a "View sidebar" option. I imagine other apps have something similar (and, if they don't, perhaps it's time to think about using another app).
Per il cellulare io utilizzo TrueCaller https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.truecaller
Non sai il gusto che provo nel mettere giù le chiamate o lasciarle squillare... Dopo un po' di volte non richiamano più, ti danno per perennemente irraggiungibile.
Per il telefono fisso io vedo 3 soluzioni possibili:
Io probabilmente propenderei per la terza opzione (anche se non ho mai provato)
Funnily enough we just had a thread for helping travellers!
As for a VPN app, I use OpenVPN for Android. Happy travelling!
> I did read the full FAQ.
1) It isn't supported according to that list, but de facto it may be. Give it a try.
2) I don't use any, I think this "management with an app" thing came over from iOS where people have to rely on iTunes whenever they want to manage their stuff on the phone.
3) As far as I know there's an Android app created by Apple called "Move to iOS". Search for it.
Oh wait, I found it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apple.movetoios&hl=en
I'm assuming you've had it with free players by now. I don't think anything beats BubbleUPNP when it comes to this kind of thing.
Smart Launcher has been my go-to launcher since ~2013.
It's extremely unique, has a very robust feature set, and very active/responsive developers.
Another unique launcher to check out.
Barcode Scanner is still free and works great for QR codes. It's based on the open source zxing.
Depends if you need any of the extrea features (likely) provided by the proprietary client. Quite often the client is basically just a rebraded OpenVPN client, though.
Battery life: might vary. "Keep alive/always on VPN" setting will have a big effect.
Data use: probably no difference.
I'd use OpenVPN, since I don't need the extra features. I use "OpenVPN for Android" client instead of "OpenVPN Connect", might work better but your mileage may vary. With OpenVPN you need to download and import the .opvn config files from your provider, so that might be a tiresome process depending on how many servers you want to use.
> Also, if I go this route, do I need to keep NetGuard activated? Thanks!
No and actually, you can't use it at the same time because Android only allows one VPN service to be run due security reasons. And NetGuard acts as a local VPN.
All in one gestures
Mine is set up exactly as you asked - swipe up from bottom for home, swipe from left for back and swipe from right for recept apps.
The Move to iOS App will make it easy for him to migrate his data over to an iPhone. I’ve found the concern of losing data is high on the list for reasons to avoid change.
On the same note, iCloud and iTunes backups make it super simple to upgrade iPhones without losing any data at all, you pick up right where you left off. That’s something you don’t see as seamlessly on Android.
Slight battery drain when I used it on my N6, but that's to be expected since its always "listening" or whatever you call it.
A suggestion. If you’re not already using it, I’ll suggest Truecaller for IOS or Truecaller for Android, a free app that has made dealing with spam calls much easier.
Results may vary, as some spammers use the same number, while others change numbers constantly. The app allows users to block and report spam numbers, which are added to their block list database. I update the block database every day or two and I’m pretty happy with it.
Fixed your link.
Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of Samsung for reasons like that as well as I've found their build quality to be pretty poor.
If you're rooted you can download the app from the playstore called "emoji Switcher" you can change it to any os emoji including ios 10 or 9. It works flawlessly for me.
edit: link for it : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stevenschoen.emojiswitcher&hl=en
It's shitty because it uploads your phonebook to them, and the new version is just annoying. I started using it because it lets me block a range of numbers -- my phone number is 212-555-1212 and I keep getting calls from a spammer who spoofs random numbers that begin with 212-555
I recommend using Barcode Scanner to read the code. As for plugins, you can get those at the plugin store of your browser of choice.
This happened to me recently and I ended up getting it replaced via warranty. In the meantime, I found I could get it to turn on and stay on by wiggling the power button across the long axis or tapping it hard quickly and repeatedly. Then I downloaded Gravity Screen to unlock the screen via the accelerometer so that I didn't have to use the button again once I got it wiggled appropriately. The hard part is fighting your muscle memory to hit the power button to lock the screen again.
Chavos, usen Truecaller en sus celulares. No solamente me ha salvado de llamadas de extorsión si no también me salva de llamadas de los bancos, telcel, movistar y otros.
I've suggested it in the past but for the sake of reference I'll post again.
If you've got an Android phone, download and install TrueCaller. It'll integrate with your phonebook and each time someone calls you'll get a more in depth caller ID. Most spam callers are identified by default when you first run the app. When you receive a call, the app will notify you who exactly is calling and if it's a legitimate number so you don't have to waste time picking up and hearing trash. Pretty handy little app to have especially considering I've not heard those messages in well over 2 years.
Link to App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.truecaller&hl=en
If you have an Android phone, install an app called TrueCaller. It has a giant directory of scam numbers/telemarketer numbers/etc. and integrates with your phone app. It functions like an enhanced caller ID so that when you receive a call it'll tell you if the call is legit or from a flagged number so you can decide to pick up or ignore it altogether.
there was one simlar i used to use called truecaller that was really cool, it shown the person you are being called by if its a company, but AFAIK a lot of newer phones (i think the one plus 6 defo) has this functionality built in (wouldnt be surprised if BT networked phones have it built in too seeing as truecaller is on a fair few bt handsets)
This is the one I use. It's been on the Play Store forever and doesn't ask for anything egregious permissions-wise (and they explain why they ask for what they ask). No ads.
I was about to buy it as well, but then I remembered I have loads of storage on my phone. I installed BubbleUPnP and copied some files over. Tested it out by setting my phone in flight mode and streamed an episode over tethered wifi (used an app called WiFi automatic to start tethering while in flight mode). It drained about 3-4% of my phone battery during that half hour, so I've now transferred lots of movies and episodes to my phone. :-)
The big shift for me was getting used to the back button after being so used to swipe to go back on iOS. I installed an app called All in One Gestures and mapped swiping from the right to go "back" in Android. Saves me a lot of hassle with trying to stretch my thumb when using the phone one handed, and it works great IMO!
If you want the animation for this... that won't be possible due to this not being an official feature so those elements that should be animated can't be touched by 3rd party apps.
But for the simple effect of swiping up to go home, yes, that's possible through Gesture Apps.
For example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phoenixstudios.aiogestures&hl=en
See that first photo? The example there is swiping from the bottom edge to go Home.
VPN->OpenVPN->Wizards (choose Local user access).

Go to OpenVPN->Client Export
and export config for user created at step 1 (inline Configurations, I prefer "Ohers" option)
Import downloaded config file in Android app and run it.
For Samsung users, I have to recommend All In One Gestures. I was using it to disable the buttons to use an app called Simple Control for an onscreen navbar but I switched to just using it to swap the back and recents keys, and I also gave long press actions to all the buttons on my S7 edge.
BubbleUPnP can do it IIRC, but you need xposed.
Its been awhile since I've played with it so I'm not sure if it'll route all audio or just media, but you could try using bluetooth. If your pc doesn't already have it, USB dongles are cheap.
I wouldn't recommend using Google Goggles as it is no longer under active development. I switched Barcode Scanner after I noticed the last update to the app was back in 2014.
I know most people here hate Truecaller but after testing every caller ID I could find on the Play Store this was the only one capable of identifying telemarketing, bill collectors and even personal numbers.
The second in line is Whoscall. Also very good but behind Truecaller in the matter of ID-ing numbers.
It is important to note that this was all tested in Brazil, so results may be different for your region.
Boom Beach now uses the native fonts for emoji instead of trying to render them (and failing hard).
This screenshot was taken on my Note 3 - I installed the emoji fonts from iOS 10.3 and they're displayed perfectly!
If you're curious (and have Root) how to switch Emoji sets I highly recommend this free app:
pro tip, use a whitelisting app like truecaller, or the local one Hiya. shit works.
There are apps to help you do that like
WhatsApp Emoji Changer
The best thing I ever did was install an app called Truecaller. It blocks pretty much all of those pesky marketing calls. There are iPhone and Android versions.
It's better than the Do Not Call register because it can also identify and block overseas callers who can ignore any DNC
Check out emoji switcher on the Play Store. Requires root but you can choose a bunch of different emoji sets.
Edit...It's not an Xposed module.
I've had no issues with OpenVPN for android.
Edit: It's also on F-Droid, if that's your bag.
This will probably be buried since I am so late, but I use this;
I also simply do not answer any number I don't recognize, if I see the same number a few times and it isn't shown as bad in Truecaller, then I block it and it will add it to their database also.
If you have root, you can use the Emoji Switcher app to change your emoji system-wide to a few different types of emoji: Google, iOS, LG, Samsung, Twitter or Emoji One.
This app will let you swap the back and recent apps buttons- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phoenixstudios.aiogestures
This app will let you use the home button as a capacitive touch home button thanks to the finger print sensor being capacitive- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jamworks.easyhome&referrer=utm_source%3D42matters.com%26utm_medium%3DWidgetWeb
Or just buy a nexus device, since they have support for Unicode 8.0
I also went for a 5x from a moto x 13. I do miss the smaller form, but I got used to it. It's not crazy big like the Pure. I also seriously missed active display, but luckily found Gravity Screen and it's a comparable replacement. Not exactly the same, but it's a lot better than using google's ~~stupid~~ broken ambient display.
The camera is way better than the 13, and you can't beat Marshmallow's Doze, which basically almost uses no battery when it's sitting undisturbed. The fingerprint scanner is also speedy and effective. And being a Nexus device, you're guaranteed security updates every month, and you get the newest OS right when it's available.
The only minor issue I have with the 5x is that the adaptive brightness is kinda dumb. It doesn't seem to ever know how bright it should be, and often is too dark or too bright. So I just turn it off and leave it at the lowest brightness, which is already bright enough.
My suggestion would be to get a 5x, try it out, and if you don't like it, you can always send it back. Both phones use nano sim cards, so you can just pop it into the 5x with no problem. Google has a good return policy, and you can also get it from B&H with no shipping and no tax (as long as you're outside of New York)
I had considered both the moto g '15 and OPX, but OP's support is complete garbage and the moto G's camera isn't so great.
I use BubbleUPnP. It supports a variety of media sources (dlna, samba, etc) so if you've got a media share of some kind it should work and it chromecasts fine. There's optional server-side software you can run on your PC if you want it to transcode on-the-fly (to support media that isn't in a format chromecast supports).
linkme: emoji switcher.
Personally I think Samsung's look like ugly cartoons
edit: sorry I thought I was on /r/Android, I don't think the linkme bot works here.
here you go, I don't know if it works on marshmallow yet.
If youre rooted theres THIS
I also use Chomp SMS it has an option for Google/Vanila Android, iOS and Twitter emojis in the keyboard
BubbleUPnP UPnP/DLNA is my go to App for playing anything on my Chromecast that does not already have it's own app. Supports any DLNA server. Local server on the device. Supports transcoding if you install the server. Will play from your cloud storage (drive, dropbox, box) as well. You can even set up any of your servers to have remote access when you are away from the house. Dev is also very responsive to feedback and updates often.
It doesn't work 100% of the time, but I'm always getting a good number of results, even with just a few hundred books that I added.
>"About half use a browser while on a mobile device"
>"Very few of you use the .compact (mobile) version of Reddit in said browser"
Oh my god. People.. BaconReader exists! And it's extremely good.
You can also use "Move to iOS", which is an Android app developed by Apple to migrate most of the apps from your previous phone to iOS
Je ne comprend toujours pas pourquoi un VPN consommerai plus qu’un autre alors.
La vitesse est lié au service VPN, à ses serveurs. La consommation de batterie est lié à l’application client utilisée. On peut utiliser différents service VPN avec la même application.
Si j’utilise ce client VPN avec différents services VPN, la consommation de batterie de devrait pas varier d’un service à l’autre.
>Does anyone else maybe have an idea how to do this automatically on android?
Android was the only OS capable of doing this until a couple of years ago. I see iOS finally caught up. This app is the one I've used for years. You should be able to install Google Camera though as well.
