MissingLink Bridges the Gap Between Your Android Device and PC

There are many ways of ‘bridging the gap’ with device synchronization between our Android devices and our PC. After all, for many of us, the PC is the main workhorse at home, school, or work. Despite this, our phones and tablets are just as important in many other situations. This is why we’ve sought to bring these things closer together through apps, PC clients, and synchronization features.

With this said, XDA Forum Member peaklabs.net has developed an app called MissingLink, which allows you to more easily communicate between the PC and an Android device, as well as between two Android devices. It does this by providing a pretty inclusive set of features and functions we normally see fragmented among multiple apps, such as:

  • Remotely control your PC with your Android device (mouse, keyboard and media)
  • Transfer files between your PC and phone or tablet
  • Automatic file synchronisation
  • Share clipboard data between devices
  • Open URLs and files on remote devices

Expectedly, in addition to the app, there’s also an accompanying PC client, which as of now, is compatible with only Windows. However, the developer has plans of expanding compatibility to include OSX, Linux, and iOS in the future. Furthermore, the free version is technically a trial version. However, peaklabs.net has kindly made it possible for you to reset the trial an unlimited times.

If you would like to give MissingLink a go, check out the MissingLink app thread for more information.

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...
