I’m greedy, I want my cake and eat it too! (When I buy an app)psx-original-controller

 You get full functioning features with the free app. The paid version had some really nice features but the upgrade is not necessary to get a great app.

 

 

Pie controls has a self explanatory name. It creates a pie shaped pop-up menu that you can customize in very useful ways. In the video below we have gone thru most of the app and have instructions on how to use it. Enjoy. It’s a great app!!

Pie Controls

The app has three or four useable area, depending on which version you are using (free or paid). The “crust” is the battery and clock bar. Like the other layers of pie controls it is highly customizable in both visual and physical ways. Color, outline, 12/24 hours, no time, no battery and some more.

Whats inside??

The inner slice is the first “quick apps” area. Each button area has the ability to hold two apps. One being quick touch and the other being long press. The next slice is the last one for the free version. It works the same was as the inner slice. Both the first and the second “quick apps” area have five buttons for use in the free version. While, the 2 slice has 8 buttons in the pro version (5 in the free version). There is also a third slice has 12 available with the pro version purchase.

 

There is two different types of pie slices. One for the top, button, left and right while the other is strictly for the corners. The corners are limited to one level and had no battery bar. Lastly, there are two different modes. One is for portrait and one for landscape. There is a check box  in the active area settings to make one mode mimic the other. If checked the height, width and position will be the same for both modes.

Kodi for Android Tutorial – Free Movies on android

Kodi for Android Tutorial – Free Movies on android

Kodi can replace your cable bill!

Do you want free movies without cable? What about current tv without that cable bill? You have found a full tutorial on how to get free movies on android and your tv. There are many options when it comes to Kodi. One option is your cell phone and you can send it to your tv with a chromecast or Amazon fire stick! Another option is something like apple tv but it has Kodi loaded on it, G-box q2. With all of these devices you can install Kodi and get free movies.

amazon-fire-stick   chromecast  gbox-like

Here is the best thing since color tv! This is a review for the best video streaming app for any device, Kodi. In this tutorial we have the details on how to install Kodi for android. Kodi can be downloaded from the google play market but it does need some modifying to get it to be the ultimate Netflix killer. With this tutorial you can have Kodi up and running in less that ten minutes, plus any download time that would be needed. As always feel free to contact us and leave comments if you have any questions.

It is simpler than it looks. Kodi started its life as an app called XBMC. Thankfully so, they changed the name to something a little more pleasing. The app can be added to Android, Mac, PC and jailbroken iPhone’s. Sorry to iPhone users.

The app starts as just a generic media player. It has none of the bells and whistles that make it great. A modification needs to be done to add the ability to have the “channels” to watch the movies. Not a problem. If you are trying to install it on any other operating system just leave a comment and I will get the info to you.

Team Viewer – Remote Desktop

Team Viewer – Remote Desktop

Team Viewer is designed to allow two devices connect in what is called remote desktop. It is designed for IT departments to provide support, allow employee teamviewer_logocollaboration or as a way to work from home when you can’t get to the office. It requires very little setup and is very user friendly. There is a admin and a host computer. Where the host is usually the IT professional you need help from and the client is the user’s computer.

Another way to get free help! The program is free to use to anyone and there is also a commercial use version that is available. Once the program is installed on both host and client the program automatically generates a passcode which needs to be shared with the other computer to gain remote access. This can go both ways, from client to host or host to client.  This feature has been called switching sides. This feature can be handy if the person receiving help for the IT department needs to see the desktop of the other computer. The IT pro can simply switch sides and the user will then be allowed access to the host computer.

Share files with your other devices. Your own personal cloud.

Team Viewer can be also used to share files. It uses a simple drag and drop sync-filesinterface. There is also a copy feature so you can easily move only copiedparts of a file to the connected computer. Transferring files if quick and painless with this feature of Team Viewer. Maintaining a database on multiple computers can be difficult unless you use a great program like this one to make the process simple.

There is also a mobile app that Team Viewer has to help make tech help that much easier. It is identical to the design on the PC/Mac program. Functions available to the mobile app include but are not limited to the control panel, chat feature, remote control, remote view and much more. This is a full feature app and provides the best solution for a remote desktop available, free or commercial.

Recently TeamViewer has added additional security features to its remote apps to prevent anyone from accessing your account. One of these features is called “trusted device” which enables you to create a more secure link to the computers that you know and trust while excluding the ones that have not made any previous authorized connection. This feature was an extremely needed feature in today’s word. The programs now uses a 256 bit encryption which is higher encryption then most online banks use. Team Viewer also watches from unusual behavior and notifies you of this kind of activity.

Summary:

computer-protectionTeam Viewer is a solid solution many IT professionals use day to day. There are other choices out there but most are more difficult to use and there features are limited or complicated. Team Viewer has a easy to use interface that anyone can become familiar with quickly and connects very simply. The mobile apps make this a no brainer for anyone wanting to use a remote desktop connection program.
