shake to unlock

Yes, shake your mobile in order to toggle between lock and unlock. I think this is a smart way to unlock mobile in front of your friends, right :P. Actually, this isn’t an app it is just a simple setup/profile which we going to create in Tasker.

What is a tasker?

Tasker is one such application with which we can do multiple tasks by creating a profile according to time/state/event/etc. The present shake to unlock is also a profile which I created using Tasker. So here is how-to!

sidebar launcher alternative by senior xda developer

Though the phones getting smarter none of the OEM’s are concentrating on the UI. Yes, esp. the devices running stock android. Though the new version is buttery smooth, lag free and lite but Google didn’t made much in user interface. Thus comes the apps like sidebar launchers, floating Touchers etc etc…

So here, the app by name lmt laucher also called as pie launcher is rock stable, lite (just 1.15mb in size), super smooth, lighting fast, single touch or multitouch gestures , commands, ISAS (invisible swipe areas) all these actions can be performed on any app/screen/etc and the options under setting’s  and other customization options made this as one of the best in the class.

Today out of 10 guys 6 were using an android device. See, how far the Google’s fine product has gone. Android has changed the way we see things and their functionality. If we have working Wifi at home or in office we can do miracles, the phone which is in your hands can act as a remote, mouse or even as a joystick.

Yes, here in this post the three awesome apps which I am going to share makes your jaw drop for sure.

kitkat 4.4.2 KOT49H

Yesterday Google officially rolled out the 4.4.2 update to all nexuses, But what the hell is new in this latest update as the same old story Google says now with this update kitkat is complete and other bug fixes in which the camera is included.

The nexus 5 UI is far better than the basic kitkat on any other nexus device.  Accessing Google now right from the home screen itself is just awesome and you won’t see the same old apps and widget tabs in app drawer and in turn increased the size of the icons and the transparent notification bar just another awesome update that one could find in the Nexus 5 all these are upto User interface and at the back end there might be lot more updates.

Nexus and Me
Though the Nexus 4 owners had to wait a long time for the OTA update but it is worth waiting because Google today rolled out a bugs free clean OTA for Nexus 4 even the Nexus 5,7 & 10 again received the same to update to fix those bugs.
Those who have not updated their device to KitKat KRT160 will receive the KRT16S update over the air and to those who have already flashed the Factory Image have to Flash this KRT16S manually.


It’s been 22 days by today, the new version of Android KitKat 4.4 has its update rolled out to all the nexuses except the nexus 4. Don’t know why the Google hasn’t thrown an OTA update but to the astonishment they uploaded the Factory Image even before the official OTA release. Guys who are thorough with custom roms and factory images might have updated their devices to the latest but for those who has no clear idea about setup and installation procedure here’s a how-to guide.
