Popup Browser Invoker Opens the Pop Up Browser Without Clicking Links on the Galaxy Note

Floating apps have been steadily gaining popularity. They open a window over your current screen, much like how it’s done on desktop interfaces. The windows can be re-sized and moved. They allow users to use applications without taking up an entire screen. One such app is called Popup Browser on the Galaxy Note. It opens up a floating window browser when some links are clicked. Now there is a way to open it at all times on the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000.

The mod is called Popup Browser Invoker, and it does essentially what it says. It allows users to open the Popup Browser without going into the regular browser and finding a link to click. It was released by XDA Senior Member vijai2011 for use on Jelly Bean ROMs.

Installation is pretty simple. Users can download the app and either install it like a normal APK or move it to /system/app and change the permissions to rw-r-r. Once installed, you can open the floating browser whenever you want. Unfortunately, it’s only compatible with Jelly Bean ROMs with TouchWiz. AOSP offerings aren’t available a this time, as AOSP doesn’t include the Popup Browser. If you’re a fan of the Popup Browser, this is definitely an app to try out.

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...
