Teach Noobs New Tricks With “Let Me Android That For You”

Often seen throughout the interwebs, are people that don’t quite comprehend the idea of the “search” button. Here on XDA, we often see members asking the same questions that have been answered, time and time again. The general response to these questions can be as tame as “please search before posting” to as harsh as “you %*@#%, cant you read!?” This kind of response is usually given several times before someone volunteers the helpful answer. But what if you could be snarky and yet helpful at the same time?

Now there is Let Me Android That For You, it will generate lmgtfy link, bit.ly links (so people can’t see where are you linking to) and copy them directly to your clipboard and you can directly share the link to Twitter, Facebook, Messages, Email and many more.

XDA member Quacktop has taken “Let Me Google That For You” and transformed it into an android friendly app called “Let Me Android That For You”. If you have not used LMGTFY, now is your chance to get familiar with it. This program gives you the opportunity to demonstrate just how Google search is used. All you have to do is type in a question, and let the app generate a link to share your findings. This link is no ordinary search link, mind you. Upon visiting the link, the user is taken to an interactive Google search, complete with step by step instructions on how to search. After the short demonstration, the user is taken to a list of links directing them to possible answers to their question.

For more information on how to teach nOObs new tricks, visit the original thread or download the app in the Android Marketplace.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
