Wake Up Your PC with WoL Everywhere

Have you ever gone through the BIOS on your computer only to see an option called “wake up over network”? If you have, then you may be wondering how to make it work. With this in mind, XDA member LichtiMC has released an app called WoL Everywhere. The purpose of this app is to allow a user to remotely turn on his/her computer. The beauty of this is that it can literally be done from anywhere in the world, as long as your computer and your device have an internet connection. This is particularly useful for people who travel often and need to access files at home from their location. The dev has mentioned that the app is still under development, but it has been reported to work well on the HD2.

As I use Software developed by XDA-members, I decided to give back a little bit… So I developed a piece of software, with which you can send Magic Packets to Computers either over LAN or over Internet.

To use WoL over lan, you do not need anything else like a connection to your (home-)network with your device (over W-Lan…)

You can find more information about it in the application thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
