Fast Finder – Android App To Search For and Find Files, Apps, Contacts, Songs and Videos In Milliseconds

August 5, 2017

I want to share a small Android App with you, that I came across, called Fast Finder. Once installed on your Android Device (smartphone or tablet) you simply invoke a search by tapping on the Fast Finder icon. A search dialog box will quickly appear where you can type in whatever it is you are looking for (i.e. files, apps, contacts, songs and videos). I am finding, as I use it more and more, that it is extremely useful in finding (and launching) apps and when searching for contacts. Super, Super fast! Definitely a keeper on my phone…

The Benefit of Turning Off GPS On Your Android Phone (KitKat Version) And Using WiFi To Determine Your Location

June 18, 2014

[FEATURED GEEK SQUEAK] The Benefit of Turning Off GPS On Your Android Phone (KitKat Version) And Using WiFi To Determine Your Location – When the GPS function is activated on your phone it is constantly performing a satellite handshake to pinpoint your location. Personally, I do not see a need for GPS unless you are going a trip and need to use the phone for navigation purposes; PLUS, GPS turned “on” drains the battery.

The 2nd best option to GPS, that is more battery friendly, is to use Wi-Fi and the Mobile Networks to determine your location. To do this on your Android Phone (KitKat version), Go to Settings > Location Mode AND select Battery Saving (Use wi-fi and mobile networks to determine location).

Remember To Use The F3 Key When Browsing

March 9, 2012

While making my rounds on the tech blogs, I was reading an article at Guiding Tech and in that article was a side tip informing people about using the F3 key in Google Chrome.

image

To expand on that tip, the F3 key is typically used to invoke a search (for text) in your web browser; whether it be Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. I am pretty certain the F3 key is a standard key used in just about any browser to invoke a text search on a web page. For example, let’s say you pull up a news site and you are looking for an article (or text) related to a specific topic. Simply hit the F3 key and you will be presented with a search box to type in what you are looking for. Once you enter the text and hit “Enter” on the keyboard, every instance of the text on the web page will be highlighted.  Usually there are up and down arrows to navigate through each instance of the text on the page. I found that Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome do the best job in highlighting the text; whereas, Internet Explorer you can lose track of where the highlighted text is located.

Using the F3 key is especially helpful when viewing a list or very long web page and will definitely save you time. When I saw that tip on Guiding Tech, I thought I need to get that tip out there.  This is one key that I definitely recommend remembering…
