Android smartphones and Apple’s iPhones are very different. Android phones are highly customizable. You can change everything from your Android phone’s home screen to the way you download apps because Android is open source. The tips below will show you how easy it is to tailor your smartphone to your specific needs.
We all have people that we call regularly. With Android phones, you can set up one-touch dialing for those people. Simply press your finger on an open space on your screen until a menu opens. Then select the “Shortcuts” option. Chose Direct Dial and select the person you would like to set from your contacts. Now you can call that individual by pressing one button.
Saving Time Searching the Web
Your Android phone can be customized to include your most frequently visited Web sites on the home screen. This is done by pressing and holding the desired site in your browser’s bookmarks. A list of options will pop up. Select the “Add Shortcut to Home” option. This will add the Web page to your phone’s home page.
Organizing with Folders
Folders allow you to stay organized in your office, so why not on your Android phone? You can create folders for projects you are focusing on or essential documents so that you can easily access them. Doing this is easy! Simply press on a blank space on your phone’s screen and when the list of options pops up, choose “Folders.” Then name your newly created folder and drag and drop your documents into it.
