It's that time of the year again, when the largest players in the mobile sphere gather in Barcelona for MWC, and one of the most highly anticipated unveilings is the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy S series, Android's biggest OEM and one of the best selling series in the world. Numerous leaks have ensured that nothing mysterious remains about the supposed Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, with images of both devices from multiple angles, as well as side by side shots and...
Smart Hide Calculator is a Calculator That Stealthily Hides Your Files
Some of the more popular file-hiding apps on the Android market right now are pretty good at their jobs, that is hiding photos, videos, documents, and such. What many of them aren’t very good at doing is hiding themselves. More often than not, such apps have their very own, very obvious app icon and name in the app drawer. Or in the case of the more ‘elaborate’ apps, there may be a ‘dummy’ UI with an icon of a shady looking character in the corner that you must press.
So rather than making it obvious that you have things to hide, XDA Forum Member IDSprofile created an app called Smart Hide Calculator, which not only hides files, but also hides itself. It takes on the innocent disguise of a fully-functioning calculator; has ‘Calculator’ as its name, as well as a matching app icon in the app drawer; and a calculator UI that will rouse absolutely no suspicion.
However, by tapping a pre-determined pin number and the equals button, Smart Hide Calculator reveals its true self: a fully fledged app that hides and unhides files, and freezes and unfreezes apps. One must keep in mind that root access is required to freeze apps. As of right now, Smart Hide Calculator is still in its beta phase, and according to IDSprofile, a host of new features and functions will be implemented in the future.
So if you want to give this app a go, or have a suggestion for a future update, make your way over to the application thread for more details and download.

When Google announced its wearables initiative around this time last year with LG and Motorola being the frontrunning hardware partners, many were skeptical about the endeavor. However, in the time since then, the platform has grown in leaps and bounds and what started off as a two manufacturer arena, soon expanded to include all the big OEMs out there. Today marks another step in Android Wear's advent, as one of the relatively smaller OEMs, Huawei, took the wraps off the...
