How to make your Android device charge faster

screenshot_2016-10-15-14-39-51

Let’s say, your phone/tablet has 17% charge. You need to go to out in 15 minutes. You will definitely need to charge it up. But does your device gain enough charge in just 15 minutes? Probably not.

Here is a guide of how to boost up your device’s charge:

1. Enabling Aeroplane mode, plugging in your device to charge, waiting for a bit, then unplugging your device and disabling Aeroplane mode.

First, swipe the top of the screen and then tap Aeroplane mode to enable. Then plug in your device and charge it. After a bit, unplug your device and swipe up and tap Aeroplane mode to disable.

TEST: 17%, in 7 minutes 21%

2. Closing all apps and then plugging your device in. This will help charging, but doesn’t help much. It will help a bit.

TEST: 23%, in 8 minutes 29%.

Combine Step 1 with this step!

 

3. Power off your device and charge it. This helps. Once it has enough charge, power it on and unplug it.

Hope your device now charges a little quicker!

A tablet buying guide

Android, iOS or Windows 10? What kind of tablet should you buy?

How to make your WordPress blog get more comments, views and likes

WordPress dashboard in Chrome Browser for Android

ANDROID:

Very common for tablets. Android tablets are extremely fast and popular.

Android tablets – pros:

You can install Word and the other Office apps onto Android.

Whether you are looking for amazing graphics, or basic power, you’ll find an Android tablet right for you.

Some apps are android exclusive

Android tablets – cons:

The Chrome Web Store doesn’t work on Android.

Some Android tablets can’t update to the latest Android version.

WINDOWS 10:

Windows 10 tablets are like PCs but they are tablets.

Windows 10 – Pros:

You can run full computer software on full Windows 10 tablets.

Your tablet works just like a PC.

Windows 10 – cons:

If you use ‘PC Mode’ it won’t be very tablet friendly.

Microsoft’s official tablets like the Surface Pro 3 and 4 cost an awful lot.

iOS:

IPads cost a lot of money but work like normal tablets. But the OS – iOS is different

iOS – Pros:

Some apps in the iOS store are iOS exclusive

There are some iOS exclusive features

iOS – Cons:

There is no “All apps” Menu like in Android. This means apps can clog up your home screen

You are restricted to the built-in apps and apps from the app store – you can’t install from third party .apk files like you can on Android. However, this restriction helps you stay secure.

So, what tablet do you think you should buy? I hope this guide helps you! Remember, if you would like to recommend something to me tell me in the comments!

Enjoy!

The Pi 3 review

Months ago I got my Pi 3. I also got a microSD  preloaded with NOOBS v1.9 and a Raspberry Pi 3 official power supply.

I was asking myself lots of questions when I got it out the box. As the Pi 3 is more powerful, are there any plans for Mojang to update Minecraft Pi Edition to add new features and improve the API? Are any new Linux Distributions going to be ported over?

The Pi 3 booted up and I sat down. It booted up in seconds and I connected to Wi-Fi using the built in Wi-Fi support. I installed GIMP (sudo apt-get install gimp) and it ran fantasticly on the Pi 3 and played Minecraft – Pi Edition and it ran really fast though it was still the same version as normal.

OpenGL support was amazing. I put video=1184×624 into /boot/cmdline.txt and enabled OpenGL and put gpu_mem to 128. I could play GLTron (sudo apt-get install gltron) and Neverball (sudo apt-get install neverball) on my Pi 3. I did disable OpenGL though. However, I like OpenGL and I will enable it sometimes.

Last month, a Raspbian update arrived and it contained the Chromium Web Browser v51! Epic! Chromium ran fast on the Pi 3.

Scratch and Geany ran very well.

 

In my opinion, the Raspberry Pi 3 is a great device for programming, play and web browsing. It only has 1GB RAM so do not open too many things at once. (example: don’t run LibreOffice Writer and Impress at the same time as 3 Chromium Windows.

 

The Pi 3 is great!

Minecraft Pi Edition can’t load libsdl-1.2.so 

So, you have downloaded Minecraft Pi Edition and you run it from the terminal. You get an error about it not being able to load libsdl-1.2.so.
I used to get this error. It can be fixed.

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install python-pygame

If python-pygame is already installed, remove it with:

sudo apt-get remove python-pygame

sudo apt-get clean

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install python-pygame.

Now Minecraft Pi Edition shouldn’t give you that error!

Enjoy!

Stuck at a certain amount of views

Lets say, you one day view your Stats. Lets say you had got 21 views that day. You leave your stats alone for a bit and post a few things.

Then, lets say your blog attracted a lot of traffic yesterday. But it doesn’t matter about views. Then, about 10 minutes later, you go to stats. It still says you have 21 views. Wait for the page to load. Still 21 views.  But it doesn’t matter about views. What time is it? If it is teatime, people might be having their tea. If you are writing at night and are about to go to bed, people with the same timezone as you or similar may be asleep. People might be playing on the computer. People might be trying to make their own blog awesome. That is OK. You will get some more views soon.

Try refreshing your stats regularly.

Remember, it doesn’t matter about views!

Why I created my blog

This blog has became better throughout the years – How did it happen? When it started – it was small. I don’t even believe the blog had a start.

I created my blog using WordPress.com and COMPLETELY FORGOT (sorry) about it in 2015, but I still got views that year.

The first ever spam comment I got made me so annoyed. I had hoped my blog would never get spam. But it did. I marked the comment as spam and Goodbye nasty spam comment.

On October the 7th 2016, I got 180 views (Oh my!) and today I have over 225. Amazing!

I wonder what is in store for the future!
