Android-Wear-Get-Free-Message-Notifications
While creating an Android messaging application, you can add notifications by implementing the “NotificationCompat.Builder” class, to help notify your user about a new message. By using this class, the system will ensures its appropriate working. If you have implemented the notifications in your application, it will automatically work on both handheld and wearable. 

Moreover, the incorporated “Open on phone” action enables users to reply via the application installed in their handheld with absolute convenience.

Incredible features: Voice to reply text messages 

Android-Wear-Voice-to-Reply-Text-Messages
Have you ever wondered that what if you will be able to reply your text messages via your watch itself? Isn't it fantastic?

Yes, not just notifications, but you can allow you messaging app to allow users to send voice replies to the text messages via their watch. We know that sending text message through the watch would be a cumbersome task, as the screen size is limited and not sufficient for a convenient keyboard. Thus, introducing a voice reply feature offers the perfect solution.

For adding this feature what you need to do is, simply use the RemoteInput of the WearableExtender to catch the user's voice input as a string. If you are interested in offering both the options voice and text replies to your users, then you can forward an array of choices to the setChoices method included in the RemoteInput.

View sender's image along with notifications

Don't you think so that introducing the sender's images as background for the message notifications will add to the intuitiveness of the application!

✔ It is recommended to use a background image of 400 x 600 resolution to support parallax scrolling.

✔ For including the background in the apk, save the image in the “res/drawable-nodpi” directory.

✔ For introducing it in the notification window, you will need to make a call to the setBackground() method within your WearableExtender and add it in the notification.

Custom Actions to make the conversation more interactive and fun

Android-Wear-Custom-Actions-to-make-the-conversation
You can develop a creative and impressive messaging application by integrating custom actions in your app. It will make messaging more fun and intuiting. For instance, the popular Whatsapp is an application that features an attractive list of emoji, which makes the app stand out of the box.

You can offer your user to send an emoticon by using a notification from the wearable. It follows a simple cycle as explained below.

✔ As soon as the handheld gets a new text message, a notification is issued via setLocalOnly(True) and a message is sent to the wearable through the integrated Data Layer API of the application.

✔ The WearableListenerService fetches the message and generates a custom notification via PendingIntent that tells it to launch an activity when the notification is viewed by the user.

✔ Along with the Wearable UI Library a custom layout is defined in the activity.

✔ The user selected emoticon is then sent back to the handhelp from the wearable.

✔ The handheld then forward the received message to the server.

These are the incredible features that you can add in your Messaging application for Wearable and Handheld, and create a remarkable application.

Karbonn Sparkle V: Affordable Deal for First Time Smartphone Buyers

In a market like today’s, where already the big smartphones and phablets have taken a premium position and are making waves with their big price tags, it is important to think differently, something that the consumers can easily buy without much pressure on their pockets. For this, Google has come up with a brilliant idea of Android One smartphones. With this latest launch, Google has ultimately raised the bar for the smartphone platforms.

In this new range of Android One Smartphones we have the Micromax Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V and Spice Android One Dream UNO. Even before they launch, these smartphones have booked some top shelves in the Indian smartphone market. With amazingly cool design, the latest features embedded inside, what else would anyone need?

KARBONN SPARKLE V – A Great Buy

Karbonn Android One Sparkle V Blue 01

The Karbonn Sparkle V is the newest addition to the Karbonn series and is also the first smartphone for Android One. The Karbonn Sparkle V has been priced at Rs 6,399. It is an affordable deal for the people who are thinking of switching from their old multimedia phones to a brand new smartphone.

Now they will surely have something that they can boast of.  Karbonn has till now managed to deliver some really good phones that have earned huge compliments from all over the market place. With this new phone in its segment, we hope Karbonn will once again bag the top spots for the budget friendly smartphones. Karbonn Sparkle V comes in an array of colors and has a brighter screen as compared to its other rivals. Perhaps there is some buzz that Google could have worked more on the resolution of the screen.

Nevertheless, Karbonn has still some great features to offer. It has been equipped with a 4.5 inch FWVGA display screen which is quite much for the price and a resolution of 854 × 480 pixels. The screen though is quite reflective in the sunlight and not to forget the finger marks that look a disaster altogether. This can be a minus point for this smartphone.

Next in its store is a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor with a 1GB of RAM, which will allow all your games and applications to run smoothly and fast without any hindrances. The quality of touch is just perfect for the price range. Karbonn Sparkle V runs on the Stock Android 4.4.4 Kitkat OS which can be updated as and when the new upgrade is available in the market. Now this is one of the few perks of having Android One in your pocket. There is no doubt that other brands have already reached their phones to another level and Karbonn will have to gear up to keep pace with them.

Karbonn Sparkle V has a decent rear camera of 5 MP with LED flash and a front camera of 2 MP which was expected for a Smartphone at this price range. The camera holds good quality as far as the bright pictures are concerned and the front facing camera will satisfy the users.  A drawback that comes with this Smartphone is that the pictures cannot be taken unless there is a microSD card inserted in the device.

The Karbonn Sparkle V has a 4 GB memory on board that can be expanded upto 32 GB via microSD card. Though the ROM is 4GB, yet the total available memory for the user is just 2 GB which makes it compulsory for the user to have a memory card because 2GB is just not enough for a Smartphone.

Karbonn does not offer a good battery with the Sparkle V. The Smartphone has a 1700 mAh removable battery that offers a talk time of 8.9 hours and the browsing time over Wi-Fi is about 5 hours, not so impressive. Other features of the Karbonn Sparkle V includes GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3.5 mm audio jack, FM radio, microUSB, Dual SIM and gyroscope.

Overall the Karbonn Sparkle V is a value for money device. It is a great Smartphone for the people who are going to buy a Smartphone for the first time. The features it offers are more than enough at such a price range.

A Beginners Guide to How Data is Changing the Face of Telecommunications

Ignorance is bliss, especially when it comes to technology and how it works. Most consumers are oblivious to how most technological items work, especially their mobile devices.

How consumers use their mobile phone has changed. Since their introduction in 1973 by Martin Cooper of Motorola, today they bear little resemblance. Back then, the newest technological advance on the market weighed in at more than 2kg. They looked like they had come straight out of the military.

Over 40 years on and the technology and telecommunications market is straining. Communication providers have to cope with more demands that were not apparent back then. The leaps and bounds the advancement in technology has taken have been nothing short of magical. Consumers are now using their mobile phones for a variety of different things. Today consumers can stream videos, access the internet and play music. These demands are all on top of using their mobile phones to call and text.
Changing-the-Face-of-Telecommunications

Today mobile devices are, in a nutshell, little computers. Consumers place these little computers in their pockets and within their handbags. They just pull them out to get the latest football results, to view the latest celebrity news or to answer a call. Consumers are ignorant to how this happens. However, telecommunication providers know all too well the difficulties it can bring.

If you break down all the new functions and features of a mobile device you are left with data. Data is the biggest demand that is placed on businesses and telecommunication providers. Wherever they are in the world. Whether the consumer is making a telephone call, browsing the internet or checking in on Facebook, it all uses data.

Data is the information that is being sent from a mobile device to its intended recipient. If a consumer is checking in on Facebook, the mobile device needs to know where to send this information. The data is then sent to a Facebook server which uses the information to service and communicate with your account. The change is then made, and data and information is sent back from the Facebook server to your phone. It is complex. It is of no surprise why consumers choose not to know about how data services and mobile devices interact with each other.

Data demands are driving a change within communication providers. All businesses need to have something in place to ensure that they can react to future changes and demands. A PCEF helps communication providers manage this traffic. It also allows for the accurate recording of use and ability to charge.

As the technology advances, the applications change. In 1973 no one could have predicted just how much the mobile phone has impacted on people's lives. Martin Cooper and all the developers at Motorola would have never dreamt just how their mobile phone would advance. The humble mobile phone has evolved over such a short space of time. Communication providers have a duty to their customers and to their stakeholders. They must ensure that they can maximise the delivery of data, whilst minimising their costs.

Top 10 photo editing apps for iPhone

iPhone has come a long way since it was launched for the first time. Like any other phone, one of the most common attributes of an iPhone is its camera. And in order to give its user a wide array of choice in photo editing, Apple has come up with different apps over the years that one can use to jazz up their pictures in the most attractive way. Here I am discussing top 10 photo apps that is going to give immense pleasure and joy to the user.



#Filterstorm: If you have been searching for an iOS app that can stand up to the editing features of Mac OS X then you have got your prayer answered in the form of Filterstorm. This app allows you to import pictures so that you can process them in the raw format. This is not enough one can uses the different editing tools like the color correction, sharpening and vignetting, manipulation and even noise reduction. This is not all. All the features are mentioned in the interface so that one can use it in the most convenient way.

#PhotoGene: compared to the first app, this one also has some interesting features in the form of preset effects that you can easily opt for depending on the kind of effect that you would like to achieve.One can add a text on the picture, add or subtract a shadow effect along with a frame tool as well as speech bubbles that you can use on the picture to convey something that you would like to say. One of the major strengths of this app is that you can easily share the picture in Facebook, twitter and other Social Medias.

#Photoshop Express: if you are looking for a basic photo editor then you can opt for this app. Compared to the previous two apps mentioned it has very few editing features and comes with preset features that are quite garish to say the least. But with this app one can flip, rotate and even resize the picture. Unlike the other two apps it has no clone tool and one can only undo the last edit done. However the self timer and the auto review is a great option as it allows one to check the previous photo clicked before you decide to click the next one. However in order to avail all these features you need to download the Camera Pack.

#Camera+: this app is relatively easy to use and has features that you will find in a digital camera. Features like Sunset, Cloudy and Backlit are there that can be used. One can use this app in two different ways. One can either edit the already stored pictures in your phone’s library or you can also use it to edit the clicked pictures. Both ways this app makes the best use of the iPhone app in order to give you a great result.



#PhotoPal: the interface of this app is very informative as it provides the user with a clear idea of what each tool is used for. Some of its popular editing features include the rudimentary Spot Healing tool, De-noise and so on.

#FX Photo Studio HD: compared to the other apps this one is alright. Neither does it have too many features nor does it lack the basics. In other words it is a so-so app that allows you to resize, flip, crop and rotate but you cannot straighten the tool.

#iDarkroom: the preset features like the texture, vignette, cross process and bokeh are quite fun to use. You can easily user the pictures from both the phone’s library of saved pictures as well as the just clicked ones that you would like to edit. Once the editing is complete you can easily share the pictures in Facebook, twitter and so on.

#Best Camera: the main aim of this app is to help you edit the pictures so that you can share it with your friends on a jiffy. However none of the effects are named and you need to try out each one of them to see what it does. Each of the effects is represented by a suitable icon. Once edited, you can share the picture in different Social Medias of your choice.

#TiltShift Generator: this app is perfect when you want to edit a cityscape. The different preset features help you to fade in, fade out, and contrast the different areas of the picture so as to achieve the look that you desire.

#Instagram: although it is not a photo editing tool (it is more on the lines of a photo sharing media) but it comes with a variety of editing tools that you can easily use to achieve the desired look and finish. In order to use it you need to create an account in Instagram so that you can edit the pictures the way you want it before you go ahead and upload it.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and install these photo editing apps in your iPhone so that you can happily click and edit the pictures just the way you want it.

The World’s Top Tech Airports

Top Tech Airports in the World
Top Tech Airport in the World
Airports are the hub of some of the most advanced examples of technology on the planet. From state-of–the-art traffic control centers that keep the skies organized to the innovative technology located on the ground, airports are a hive of electronic activity. Most recently, Copenhagen Airport incorporated Google Glass to help check-in passengers, which has been proved very successful with customers. As an increasing number of airports step up their technological game, "low cost holidays" gives us the rundown of the most advanced, tech-savvy airports in the world.

Top Tech Airports in the World

Sacramento International Airport (SMF)

After coming in fifth in PC World’s list of Top 20 Tech Friendly Airports in the USA, it comes as no surprise that Sacramento International is well equipped to deal with the tech-savvy generation. From the unseen gadgets, such as the convection-based cooling system to keep you feeling fresh, to the use of the ‘B4 You Board’ smart phone app that lets you pre-order a meal directly to your gate, Sacramento is keeping tech-loving travelers well catered. For those wanting to keep in touch with the outside world, the new Terminal B complex offers free WI-Fi and an average of 30 USB ports and outlets at each gate.

Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS)

This slick, modern airport offers an abundance of Internet access points coupled with plenty of conferencing facilities; ideal for business folk on the move. To keep everything efficient, there is automatic iris recognition at the border, fully automated luggage drop off and even unique screening technology. Known as Security Scan, Amsterdam Schiphol is the only airport in the world to use this millimeter wave screening technology to ensure passenger safety. Another great reason to fly through Schiphol is the recently installed Near Field Communication (NFC) – ready boarding gates. These gates allow passengers to use their NFC-enabled mobile phone to pass through the boarding gate, even if their phone is switched off, making your airport experience that little bit swifter.

Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC)

You may not initially assume that San Jose International is particularly technology-savvy, but this innovative airport has become a popular stomping ground for tech-loving travelers. Relaxing while waiting to board your flight comes naturally, especially when you take advantage of the fast, free WI-Fi and keep your power topped up with electrical outlets that are built into the arms of all the chairs at the gate. If you want to splash out, visit The Club at SJC, a VIP lounge and technological paradise. Kitted out with super-fast WI-Fi, workstations, PCs, free drinks, snacks and showers, and all for just $35, you can ensure your holiday begins from the moment you check in your bags. To regulate temperatures, the terminal chairs are integrated into the ventilation system, diffusing fresh air over eight feet, but only when they sense a person is sitting in them.

Changi Airport (SIN)

While you never need a specific reason to visit the beautiful city of Singapore, passing through Changi Airport certainly provides an added bonus to your trip. The centerpiece to this stunning airport is the interactive Social Tree, made up of 64 massive screens standing at ten meters tall. Fully interactive, this ‘tree’ allows users to log in and upload personal photos and videos which are displayed for everyone to see. The most incredible aspect of the Social Tree is that you can continually revisit these stored memories in any subsequent trips through Changi Airport. If you happen to be feeling stressed, just head to the Enchanted Garden, an interactive experience that comes to life as you walk through it. Triggered by motion sensors, the blooming flowers sparkle and shimmer, creating an ideal place to relax before your flight.

Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW)

Topping the poll on PC World’s extensive search for America’s top tech airport, Dallas Fort Worth was crowned the king of connectivity. The airport benefitted greatly from a partnership with Samsung, who kitted out each gate with charging stations, mobile travel lounges, mobile kiosks, flat screen televisions and video walls. Gone are the days of scouring for an outlet to desperate charge your PC before that long haul flight; DFW boasts the top average number of electrical outlets, fast WI-Fi speed and cellular service. The free Internet access for its 57 million annual travelers goes down pretty well, too.

With everything from automatic cooling chairs, interactive electronic gardens and social trees already in use in airports across the world, who knows what the future will hold for tech-hunting travelers. The airports in this list are present among the most advanced in the world, but with new terminals continually popping up, the next big thing may only just be around the corner. In the meantime, keep your laptops charged and a movie on standby – just in case.

Top Apple iOS 8 Features that can Tempt Any Android User

Apple has recently launched the latest version of OSX, OSX Yosemite and iOS 8, the most anticipated next generation operating system for Apple devices. The iOS 8 has taken the world by storm. I am an iPhone user and am quite happy with the special features that it is offering. Top Apple iOS 8 features are worth mentioning that have caught the attraction of users across the globe.

Top Apple iOS 8 Features 

Whatsapp + Snapchat + Instagram = iMessage:
The new version of iMessage comes packed with a variety of features that is a combination of whatsapp, snapchat and instagram. Like whatsapp one can now audio message, share videos like Instagram and opt for ephemeral messaging like that of snapchat. It also boasts of group chatting and location sharing, which is very much similar to that of whatsapp.

Apple IOS 8 Features

IOS 8 Interactive Notifications:
Apple seems to have outbid its arch rival Android in this aspect. Now one can easily check the notifications, whether it is of a third party app (like Facebook), check Gmail in the same screen without opening that particular app.

IOS 8 keyboard prediction:
Apple has relaunched its QWERTY keypad, but with advanced features. It has an auto suggestion option where the keypad will suggest words based on what you are writing and to whom you are writing. Don’t confuse it with auto corrections. Both these two things are quite different. The iOS 8 also supports Third-party keyboards, something very similar on the lines of Swiftkey, Swype and Fleksy keyboards.

IOS Health App Screenshot:
One of the best features, this app aims at collecting all the information related to your health like pulse rate, calories burned, walking, sleeping pattern and store all the information in this app and will suggest the measures that can improve your health and fitness. It will also notify your physician in times of emergency.

IOS 8 Family Sharing:
If you are a family of 6 then this app is for you. Your family can easily share the purchased apps via family sharing provided the apps have been purchased using a single credit card. In fact, through this feature one can also share family pictures quite easily via family calendar.

IOS 8 Continuity Handsoff: 
Through this feature the user can easily synchronize between the iPhone, iPad and Mac and use any one of them through the other gadget say for example work on Mac via the iPhone. If Wi-Fi feature is not there then the devices will automatically connect to the personal hotspot. Attending calls, writing mails have been never so easy and convenient.

IOS 8 iCloud Drive:
Very much like Google Drive, the iCloud drive will allow you to upload and save any documents. And since you can synchronize between the three devices, if you make an edit on a doc in iPhone it will be immediately reflected on the other two devices as well.

IOS 8 Spotlight App Store:
Now searching anything on your iPhone became more convenient. Whether it is the contact, music or iTunes, App Store, Wikipedia, News, Places and much more, this app store everything under a single index so that you can locate anything at any given point of time.

Although iOS 7 failed to attract the users iOS 8 has garnered its own fan following. And by the year end Apple is hoping to see many Android loyalists becoming a fan of the iOS 8.

The Nexus 6 has some serious astonishing features which will surely turn the thinking hat on for the manufacturers like Samsung, Apple, Sony, LG, HTC and others.

Here below is a review of Google Nexus 6 with a few rumors which are hovering over the market.

Hold for the Bendable display with Metal Body

Metal bodies are the most expected from any smartphone which gets launch today. The Nexus 6 is doing the same this time and will ditch the plastic as per the rumors.

Now, the interesting part is that how the Google will put on the bendable display, which is the latest new out in the market on the Nexus 6. Well, I guess there will be some extraordinary thinking from the developers, but I’m happy with both the features and ready to test them on my phone.

Fasten your Seatbelts while Using the Processor

No, you don’t need to get aboard on a flight to use the Nexus 6. It’s just the details of its processor, which has come out and forces me to write it as above.


The Nexus 6 is very much in the mood to get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset working @ 3 GHz with 4 GB RAM and 64-Bit architecture support for the its OS. So, don’t you need to sit back hard to handle such a high speed?

Don’t forget to Charge it!

You must be thinking that I’ll tell you that the Nexus 6 will have a decent battery only. Wait, I said don’t forget to charge it because the Nexus 6 won’t require that irrespective of your uses until you get to sleep.

The 3100+ mAh Li-Ion battery is surely enough to support my statement above as Nexus 6 is supposed to get power from this beast.

Can click pictures? Let’s see what you’ve got!

The Google has vowed to provide the never seen before camera technology with the launch of Nexus 6. The 18-22 MP HDR LED camera will surely redefine the clicking world and will give the Sony and HTC a headache for sure. The company is working on video capturing technology and soon you will not need to carry handy cam all time in your pocket and the device will fulfill your all desires.

Now, if you believe that you’re one of a good cameraman then, show the world your uniqueness and craziness with this camera.

The Android will taste awesome

This is the only thing which is confirmed that the Google will launch the new android with the Nexus 6 as its doing the same with other Nexus phones in the past.

The latest android 4.5v Lollypop or 5.0v Lion Bar will ruin all the launchers and TouchWizs also available today as it’s just too tasty to get handled by them.

Wait, it’s not over yet

The Google Nexus 6 will have a handful of features like smartphone mirroring to watch your content on your smart TV, and yeah a security feature which you can use to lock your phone with your gestures. It’s needless to say that it’ll be water proof and dust resistant.

When it’s coming out?

There is no confirmation about the release date of this high end Nexus phone, but if we look back at the launching dates for previous dates of Nexus series and take the official statement from the Google into the consideration, then the Nexus 6 will hit the market sometime after the first half of this year, that could near the October I guess.

Final Words

The Google Nexus 6 is looking like a perfect device to me who is a hard core android fan and just fed up with the repetitive models of Samsung, features of Sony, average camera of HTC and yeah copy of LG.

The Nexus 6 is going to provide a wholesome option to all the users which are so desperate to get some change in the boring launches of the other manufacturers with only one or two ad ons.

The Smartphone geeks are waiting keenly to hold the handset in their hands with latest OS and awesome features. I would prefer to wait them some more time, which is planning to buy an android phone presently. No other device can be seen in the market equivalent to Nexus 6’s features.
