Improve Your Multitasking with Sidebar Plus

When available time is at a minimum and you’re trying to perform tasks as efficiently as possible, multitasking is key. And in order to best do this, it is important to have easy access to your common applications, most often used functions, and relevant information. Luckily the freedom of Android allows us to add this functionality when necessary with the appropriate add-on application.

XDA Forum Member leducbao aims to make multitasking more efficient with his application Sidebar Plus. Currently in its first beta, the app creates various sidebars of your choosing. You can put various items in the sidebars such as apps, contacts, commonly accessed settings, shortcuts, and DashClock extensions. Furthermore, you can add widgets to the sidebars for glanceable information. You can also create multiple bars, as well as change the visuals and trigger options for the bars.

Get the goods and test the beta over in the application thread. Make sure you leave feedback for the developer as he further refines his app.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
