How To Improve More On Your Android App Development Skills

It's good to always develop oneself in any area or aspect we find ourself. Developing Android apps is a very rewarding job. Seeing how your creations are used and appreciated by thousands of Android users definitely will be an amazing experience.

Unfortunately, the road to becoming top Android developers is far from easy. There are millions of apps out there so it will be very hard to have your apps noticed by the users. If you are serious about building your career as a respected Android developer, just follow this simple tips that can help you build your Android development skills even more than what you expect. Now let's start.

Steps to  take to improve more on your Android Development skill

1. Develop Apps that Work with Multiple Devices

Read This: 3 Best Android Apps For WiFi Hacking(No Root)

One of the biggest challenges of developing apps for Android is there are myriads of different Android devices out there. As a result, what might work on one Android device could fall short in the others. Of course, it is extremely hard, if not impossible, to test your apps on all Android devices under the sun.
But there is one thing that you can do to make sure your app works on most Android devices. It is consistency. Instead of pixels, it will be best to use dip (density independent pixels). While there are some shortcomings about the dip, it is great for Android because it can easily adjust to the size of the user’s phone. As a result, no matter what the device is, the users can use your apps conveniently.

2. Make User Security as One of Your Priorities
As an Android app developer, you must take the users’ security into consideration. Find out how hackers and security flaws usually affect the user’s data and make sure your app doesn’t pose a threat to the security of users of your apps. Limit the number of permissions your app needs to improve the security of your app. Furthermore, don’t forget to always follow Android’s best practices which are designed to protect the security of users.

3. Be updated with the Trends but Think Out of the Box
As an apps developer, you should not only learn how to code. You also should find out about the latest trends and what users expect from an Android app nowadays. This is very important because creating an app that nobody likes definitely is a waste of your great talent and skill. Following the trend is a must because it is the most effective way to create Android apps that appeal to the public. However, you also should be able to think out of the box so your apps can stand out from the competitions.

4. Learn More Codes

Always concentrate and focus on your work and use codes that you have mastered. However, you will not go anywhere as a developer if you only dwell on what you already know. As a developer, it is very important to always improve your skills by reading Android PDF courses and even see how the other developers work. Take a look at some open source apps and then learn the code, find out how the developers of that apps work. There are so many great things to learn out there so make sure to use every opportunity as a chance to learn new things.

5. Testing Is Important
When you test your apps, don’t use emulators because it doesn’t give the right image of how the app works on a real smartphone. Furthermore, it is always best to test the app on a low-end device because this is where the apps could have some issues.

6. Listen to What the Users Say
You are developing apps for users, to give them a great experience when using their Android smartphone. So, you definitely need to listen to their feedback. You are not going to hear nice comments every single time, especially if you deal with pissed users who are disappointed with your apps. However, listening to what the users say is a great way to improve. Besides, you also can use their feedback to make your apps more perfect, or even as an idea for your next applications.
Being a successful Android developer is certainly not easy. But let’s not forget the fact that Android users keep increasing every year so, the Android apps market will always have more room for new creative developers. If you are persistent, keep improving your skill and always keep your eye open for the new trend and what the users want, the road to be a successful Android developer will be very smooth.

Once you consider all this trick I showed you and put it into action, am very sure your Android Development skill will improve more.

How To Set AdBlock To Any Block Ads On Specific Sites

As we all know that there are some site that pop up ads which might be annoying to us. If you like the idea of blocking overbearing ads, but don’t want to steal revenue from sites you like, That is why today i will be showing you how to set AdBlock to allow all ads by default, and then block them anytime you like.
Google is really doing their puossible best to make your ad experience better on the web by blocking ads that don’t meat certain standards, the amazing part is that you can have the control wherever you want it. That’s where AdBlock comes in but not in all way you think of this controversial plugin.

On a normal ground, Adblock default settings block ads on all sites. Though not all ads are bad, overbearing, or otherwise in the way. In fact, ads are how many websites make money. While we go out of our way to make sure the ad experience is as out of your way as possible, we also understand that not all websites are as aware of their ad situation as they should be or in some cases they just don’t care. Whatever the reason, if there comes a time when a website is forcing too many ads down your throat, you can wish to block them at this point in time, now let's go straight to the point by showing you how to set adblock to allow ads and how to re-enable ads on blocked sites.
Read This: Facebook Set To Start Bypassing Adblockers & Forcing Ads Show On Your Gadgets

While we definitely encourage the “innocent until proven guilty” mindset when it comes to blocking ads, we also understand that some websites are just awful when it comes to putting ads in your face. We feel like allowing ads in general, and then blocking ads on offending sites offers a great middle ground in the debate over blocking ads.

How to Set AdBlock to Allow Ads
First of all, Install AdBlock. It’s available for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. After you install it, the instructions are essentially the same across all browsers.
But note what am about to do now, I will be using Chrome for the tutorial so it might look slightly different if you’re using another browser, now let"s start

>>After installing the AdBlock..Click the extension icon, and then choose the “Options” entry (This opens a new browser tab).

>>On that tab, click the “Customize” option at the top.

 >> The next thing you will notice is that there are quite a few options on the “Customize” page, but you’re looking for the “Show ads everywhere except for these domains” option. Then click it to expand a new input box.

>>While In that box, you can start adding the sites on which you want to block ads by using the format displayed just below the box. The sites you type are added to the “Filters” section.

NOTE: You can edit the filters section manually as well, but be aware that it’s very particular about formatting. One incorrect character then everything might mix up

But you don’t have to worry anymore about manually inputting every site for which you want to block ads. Instead, you can just use the extension icon as you’re browsing.

When you encounter an offending site, just follow this below steps. 
>>Go to that site’s home page
>>Click the AdBlock extension icon, and then choose the “Enable AdBlock on this page” option.

NOTE: You do need to do this on a website’s home page, otherwise it only block ads on the exact page you’re looking at. When you enable it on the home page, though, it only blocks ads across that entire domain. Now how to re-enable ads for block site
How to Re-Enable Ads for Blocked Sites
At any point here, maybe you have a change of heart (or perhaps accidentally blocked ads), you can easily undo this setting. While you can edit the Filters list, I’d generally recommend against that unless you’re absolutely sure of what you’re doing. And again, if something is entered improperly, it can break the entire list. Once you notice that mix up, just follow the below steps.
>>Vsit the site’s home page, click the AdBlock icon, and then choose the “Don’t run on pages on this site” option.

>>This open a new window, then just click “Exclude” to allow ads across that domain.

That's all, pretty simple.

How To Factory Reset Your Synology NAS Drive

First of all, the full meaning of NAS is Network Attached Storage for home and business while Synology is dedicated to provide DiskStation NAS that offers RAID storage, storage for virtualization, backup, NVR, and mobile app support.

If you note that your Synology NAS drive is giving you problems, or you’re just upgrading to a whole new system, there are a few ways you can reset it, depending on the action you need it for.
Before i proceed on the steps, it’s a good idea to install the Synology Assistant app on your computer (which you can do from this page). It lets you view the status of your NAS drive without having access to the drive itself.
It’s also great to have if the IP address of your NAS drive changes when you reset it and you aren’t sure what the new IP address is. Now, let's proceed to the three methods of resetting your Synology NAS drive.

There are three ways to reset a Synology NAS:
1. Resetting just the network settings (which will also reset the admin login password)

2. Resetting and reinstalling DiskStation Manager (still keeping all your data intact)

3. Resetting everything (including erasing all data on the hard drives).

First of all, let's talk about "Resetting Network Settings"

See This : The Easiest Steps To Access Your Computer Hardrive With Your Smartphone

If you notice that your NAS drive is giving you some network issues, you can do a simple reset of just the network settings. This also resets your admin login password, and you’ll be prompted to create a new one after resetting the network settings . follow this below steps for resetting the network setting

>>Start by locating the reset button on the back of your NAS drive. It’s usually right next to the USB and Ethernet port(s).

>>Get a paper clip or a SIM card removal tool and hold down the reset button for about five seconds—until you hear a beep. Then let go immediately.

>>After that, fire up Synology Assistant, and then double-click your NAS drive to access it and login.

 >>Now, "Sign In” by filling the username and password box.. The default username is “admin” and the default password is left blank.

>>You’ll then be prompted to create a new password. Hit “Submit” when you’ve done that.

>>On the next screen, click the “Log in Now” button.

>>From there, just login with your new password and you’ll be back up and running!
That's all for the network settings

Now, How To Resetting and Reinstalling DiskStation Manager (still keeping all your data intact)

Read This: How To ByPass And Reset Password On Every Operating System

This will completely reset the DiskStation Manager "DSM" operating system, but still keeping all of their data intact on the hard drives—this is great for those upgrading to a new NAS box, or if DSM is just giving you some issues and you just want to wipe and start fresh. Be sure to create a backup of your configuration so that you can restore it after reinstalling, just follow this pretty steps carefully

>>Firstly, Locate the reset button on the back of your NAS drive. It’s usually right next to the ethernet port(s).

>>Now, Get a paper clip or a SIM card removal tool and hold down the reset button for about five seconds—until you hear a beep.

>>Immediately after that, hold down the reset button again for five seconds until you hear another beep. Let go immediately after that.

Then your NAS will beep a couple more times, and then the NAS drive will reboot. After a couple of minutes, the status light will blink orange. DSM is now ready to be reinstalled.

>>So just open up Synology Assistant, and then double-click your NAS drive (it will say “Configuration Lost” next to it) to access it.

>>Click the “Re-install” button.

>>Hit the green “Install Now” button.

>>Wait for the NAS to reinstall DSM and reboot itself. This usually takes 15 minutes or so, just wait.

>>When the NAS has rebooted, click the “Connect” button.

After that you can then create your admin account and go through the same setup process you did when you first got your NAS drive.

Now the last but not the least which is "Reset Everything and Erase All Data"

Erasing everything simply means deleting. If you want to go the more extreme route, you can completely reset everything, including wiping all data off the hard drives. This is also a bit easier to do since you can do this right from DSM, rather than having to deal with the physical reset button on the device. Before we proceed, I will advice you to back up everything first then follow these below steps to reset everything and erase all data.

>>Login to DSM (DiskStation Manager), and then open up the “Control Panel” window.

>>Click the “Update & Restore” option.
>>Switch to the “Reset” tab at the top.
>>Hit the red “Erase All Data” button.

>>When the pop-up window appears, check the box next to the red text, and then click the “Erase All Data” button.

>>After that, enter in your admin login password and hit the “Submit” button.

Synology NAS will begin the reset process. This could take anywhere from 10-20 minutes, but once it’s done, you can fire up Synology Assistant and your NAS will indicate that it’s “Not Installed.” At that point, you’ve completely reset your device, then you can now set it up afresh
You can follow any of the three ways to factory reset your Synology NAS drive

How To Create Your Own Custom Templates In Microsoft Excel

Excel is one of the package in Microsoft Office which most people/company use in calculating, analysing, arranging, estimating data's of particular things. You can now create the same types of Excel spreadsheets over and over again. Creating a custom template can help make that process looks more smoother and prettier.

While creating similar spreadsheets, many people pop open an existing sheet, delete the data they don’t want there, and then save it as a different file. The funniest part is that some just create the file from scratch every time but with the help of custom template, it can make this go a lot faster.

Template files are more or less the same as standard Excel files, but with formatting and boilerplate content already set. You just use the template to create a new Excel file, and fill in the data. You can create a custom template from scratch, or you can save an existing spreadsheet as a template, and then clean it up a bit. The only difference is whether you start with a new, blank sheet or one you’ve already created. Let me show you how to create a template at first...

Read This: How To Adjust Column Size In Microsoft Word(MS Word)

How To Create a Template
For instance, we want to create template from an existing spreadsheet. Here’s a standard sheet we use for expense reports.

The file is just a regular Excel file saved with the .xlsx extension. Ours is already nicely formatted, so we just need to delete any actual data we don’t need to be there.

If you’re adapting an existing sheet (or creating a new one), just follow this process below

>>Go ahead and clean it up.

>>Set up the base sheet

>>Add your headings, include formulas , format cells, create borders , whatever. In short, make it so that when you create a new file based on the template, you can just start typing in data.

>>When you have got things looking the way you want, you need to save the file as a template. Open the “File” menu, and then click the “Save As” option.

>>In the file type dropdown (just underneath the file name text box), select the “Excel template (.xltx)” option.

>>Normally, if you want to save any template Excel likes to save it in Documents\Custom Office Templates, but you can save them wherever it's easy for you to access.

If you want an even more organized approach, you can change the default location where Excel saves templates. On the “File” menu, click the “Options” command. In the “Excel Options” window, slick the “Save” category in the left column.
On the right, you’ll see a “Default personal templates location” box where you can type a path to a custom save location for templates. There’s “Browse” button for some reason, so type the full path to the folder you want to use or copy and paste the location from a File Explorer address bar. Now, let me show you how to use template to create a new document

See Also: How To Prevent Windows 10 Drom Automatically Downloading Updates (Minimize Data Consumption)

Using A Template to Create a New Document
As per the above steps on how to create and save template, once you have save your template, you can use it to create new documents. You can do this in one of two ways.
Once you have save your templates in the official custom templates folder Office uses (whether that’s the default Documents\Custom Office Templates location or you configured a new save location in Settings), those templates become available on the Office splash screen. That screen shows featured templates by default, but you can see templates you’ve saved by clicking the “Personal” link.
What you have to do is by clicking the template you want to use, and Excel creates a new document for you based on that template.

You can also create a new file based on a template by double-clicking the template in File Explorer.
NOTE: The default action on template files is to create a new file rather than open the template file, so double-clicking a template immediately opens a new Excel file for you.
If you want to open the actual template file to modify it, this is what you need to do....Right-click the file >>then choose “Open” from the context menu. 
You have to observe this, template files are functionally much like regular excel files in the end but the big difference lies on how Excel handles those files, making it easy for you to create new documents based on them, that's just the big thing you have to observe there.

How To Protect Your Identity On Facebook With Face Recognition Technology

It not new that people are using someone elses pictures to fraud on social medias. Facebook is now doing a great job concernng this because they revealed a new feature that will automatically let users know when they appear in a photo or video, even if they weren’t actually tagged instantly.

Though this feature was first announced in December 2017 but was fully integrated on February, 2018. Those who logged onto Facebook on Tuesday could attest to the fact that Facebook notifies them on their News Feed of the firm’s new facial recognition technology.
For you to be part of this great feature which has rolled out to every user, this will only be applied to newly uploaded photos. And you will only receive a notification if the person uploading the picture makes it visible to you through their privacy settings.

See This: How To See Pictures In Facebook Free Mode

How To Easily Detect Fake Facebook Profile Picture

NOTE: This tool will not roll out to Canada or the European Union, where Facebook faces much more intense backlash over its use of facial data.
As per this feature advantage, If a picture featuring your face is uploaded, you will notice a dialogue box pop up, once you noticed that, Then, you’ll have the option to tag yourself, message the user who posted it, notify Facebook that the face isn’t you, or report the picture for violating the site’s rules. Facebook says it will also now notify users if their photos are being used by another profile, a move that could cut down dramatically on imposter accounts.

Facebook now is spinning the feature as one that gives users more control over their online privacy and content.
While it may be good for users to know what pictures of theirs are floating in cyberspace because there may be photos that exist that you don’t know about. There’s a major plus in it for Facebook also.

The more users trust the social media giant with their photos, the more they will upload and the more they will engage with the site. And more engagement means more money, so we have to be very conscious of our Facebook account.

How To Adjust Column Size in Microsoft Word(MS Word)

MS Word is a package in Microsoft office. You might have been having issues in inserting column in Microsoft word..... There is a default width in MS Word but it's very easy to change that default width for each column. Let’s look at those ways you can do that.
How To Set Up Column Width With The Columns Dialog Box

Just note that when you set a Word document to use multiple columns, Word assigns a default column width that depends on the number of columns you choose. Here are those default widths below...

One Column: 6.5″ width for the column. Most people are used to this standard setup when you start typing in a blank document with default page settings. Start with an 8.5″ width for the paper size, take away 1″ on either side for the default page margins, and you’re left with 6.5″ for the actual text.

Two Columns: 3″ width for each column, with a 0.5″ space between columns.

Three Columns: 1.83″ width for each column, with a 0.5″ space between columns and it goes on like that.
Word lets you have up to 13 columns, and the more you add, the less space each column gets.

Among all this column, you can just set the number of columns you want and go about your business. But, you can change things up if you want. Maybe you want smaller columns, with more space in between those columns. Or, maybe you two columns to be a similar size, and then have a smaller column off to the right.

Now, i will be showing you how to do all that using the “Columns” dialog box. This is the best way to set up columns if you don’t yet have any text in your document, or if you know the precise measurements you want to hit. Check it out below..

Read This: Trick To Get Windows 10 Upgrade/Updates on your Window 7&8 PC After Deadline

1. When using MS Word column dialog box, you have to switch to the “Layout” tab on the Ribbon. That’s where the column magic happens. Click the “Columns” button and a dropdown menu opens with a number of options.

2. Choose any of the numbers on the list to create that many columns with their default widths. Choose the “Left” or “Right” options to create a two-column layout where the column you chose (left or right) is smaller—about half the size of the other column. It’s the “More Columns” option we’re after here. Click that to set up your own custom column widths.

3. The “Columns” window that pops up lets you perform your customization. The “Presets” section contains the same options you saw on the “Columns” menu.

4. You can also use the “Number Of Columns” box to set a specific number of columns from 1 to 13. So, start by choosing how many columns you want.

5. Select the “Line Between” option to have Word put a vertical line between columns.

6. To actually adjust the column width. If you want your columns to all stay the same width as one another, you can just adjust the number in the “Width” box for column #1... Changes you make there apply to all columns, no matter how many you have. Same goes for spacing. Adjust the number in the “Spacing” box for column#1 to change the spacing between all columns.

7. Note that as you change one value (width or spacing), the other value changes as well. Bump up the width, and the spacing goes down. Bump up the spacing, and the width goes down. You only have so much page width to work with, after all. Here, we set the width down to 1″ and the spacing went up to 1.75″ to compensate.

If you want to control the width of each column individually (making some wider and some narrower), disable the “Equal Column Width” check box.
When you do that, the width and spacing boxes for each column become available, and you can change them however you see fit. Keep in mind that you still have a fixed page width to work with, so adjust the width or spacing for one column will cause the others to change. You may have to work with it a bit to get things how you want them.

Here, we’ve set up three columns. The first two are 2″ in width and the third is smaller at 1.5″. We left a .5″ spacing between all columns.

Note also that you don’t get to adjust spacing for your final column. This makes sense, because the spacing only happens between columns.
How To Change Column Width on the Fly with Word’s Rulers

Now that you’ve seen how to set up column widths using the dialog box , let’s take a look at how you can change them on the fly with the Word ruler. This method is great if you already have columns in your document and you want to play around with widths to see what looks right to you.

>>Firstly, you need to make sure that your document rulers are visible. If you can’t see them, switch to the “View” tab on the Ribbon, and then select the “Ruler” option. Word’s rulers are great for lining things up, keeping tabs on measurements, and controlling indentation and margins. You should really leave them on all the time.

>>Assuming you’ve already got your document set up for two or more margins, look at the horizontal ruler at the top of the page. You can see that there’s a gray space in the middle of the ruler between the two columns.
That represents the spacing between columns that we talked about in the previous section, and it’s defined by two margin markers (the upside-down “L”).

>>Dragging either one of the margin markers changes the size of the spacing, and the margins for the columns themselves. For example, if you slide the left margin marker to the left, the right maring marker automatically moves to the right, increasing the size of the spacing between those margins. The columns of text in your document change as you do this, too, giving you instant feedback on how the changes will look.

Here, we’ve dragged it it so the spacing is much greater than the default, leaving a wide space between columns.
You probably noticed that the ruler also contains a small white triangle (although where it appears changes based on which column you’ve selected text in. That’s the indent marker, and it lets you control the interior indent on paragraphs in each column—the right indent for the left column and the left indent for the right column.

How To Use The HomePod With Your Apple TV (Step-By-Step)

Recently, we published a post on how to customise or disable siri inwhich homepod was included and we get diferent testimonies on our mail about it work. Then most iOS users don't even know how to disable the siri talkless of customising but after publishing that post here, Many people sent a "Thanks" mail to us.

But today we will talk about using the homepod with your Apple TV. Apple’s HomePod is a great little speaker, and while you can AirPlay music to it from your iPhone, you can also wirelessly hook it up to your Apple TV through AirPlay. Here’s how to do it. 

You must have this in mind before going through these steps below...Using your HomePod as your new home theater speaker setup, it’s important to know that using the HomePod like this isn’t really its intended purpose.
The HomePod only works with your Apple TV and no other television inputs. So, for example, if you frequently go back and forth between your Apple TV and watching cable on a different input, you won’t be able to use the HomePod as a speaker for when you watch cable.

Let's be frank...that AirPlay itself has a bit of a lag since it’s a wireless protocol. However, the Apple TV and the HomePod are smart enough to recognize this and compensate for the lag so that video and audio are lined up just right. The bad news is that this really only works with video content. If you play any games on your Apple TV, the lag is more apparent. You also need to reconnect the HomePod to your Apple TV every time you reboot either device. And if you ever tell Siri to play music on the HomePod, the HomePod will disconnect from your Apple TV, just take note of that very well, nevertheless the HomePod is only compatible with the Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 4K. So if you have an older model, it might not really work the way it should.
Using your homepod with your Apple TV, it enables you to control video playback a little bit using Hey Siri on the HomePod. Things like play/pause, volume, and scrubbing can all be done using your voice. So if anything, this gets you one step closer to being able to control your Apple TV with your voice. Stay tuned while I show you the steps to connect the homepod to the Apple TV.

Read This: How You Can Disable Or Customize Siri On Your iPhone Homepod

Step By Step On How To Connect The HomePod With The Apple TV
This setup is pretty simple...

>> With your HomePod and Apple TV on the same network, start by holding down the Play/Pause button on your Apple TV remote for about three seconds until a menu pops up on the screen.

>>After doing that, the menu lets you select the audio output. In this case, you will have to select your HomePod.

>>After the selection of the HomePod, a checkmark displays next to it. Press the “Menu” button on your Apple TV remote to go back to the home screen.

>>When you get to this stage,  you can begin using it as usual or  still use your Apple TV remote to adjust the volume of the HomePod, or use the touch panel on the HomePod itself. An indicator appear in the top-right corner of the screen to show you the volume level.
That's all about that.

NOTE:  When pausing or scrubbing through the video you may notice some increased lag depending on which app you use to play video content, but eventually it will sync back up without a problem.

GamePigeon is also a free game on iMessage which offers 22 games in a fairly small package. Those games include Mini Golf, Chess, 20 Questions, Poker, and Sea Battle (think Battleships). Not all the games quite hit the spot, but in terms of sheer wealth of options, it’s hard to criticize it.

A social RPG, you explore the fantasy land of Moji with friends, battling monsters and solving puzzles. It’s not quite up there with ‘proper’ RPGs, but it’s still quite the accomplishment.
This game just require simple process because it just deal with levelling up with plenty of equipment to unlock and quests to complete. It’s satisfying yet easy to dip in to.
