Product Description

Product Description

Android will be powering not only your mobile devices, but in the near future, it will control your TV, Cars, general electrical equipments and even your whole home.
You can be in control of all those things and will be controlling them with your hand held device like a mobile or tablet. This book lists a hundred ways you can use your android device.

Here is a sample of what you will get.

Take measurement

You can now use your android device to take measurements of all sorts. Hard to believe? Take a look at the various apps which belong to this category. First of all there is an app called Smart Measure which measures the distance and height of an object by trigonometry. The effective distance in which it does the calculation is about 1-50 m. Just stand up and press the camera shutter button. The important thing to keep in mind is to aim the camera at the ground, not the object. Another app which belongs to a similar category is called the Smart Ruler. You can measure the length of small objects with your phone by touch. Put an object on the screen of your phone. Adjust the object to the left of the screen and touch the screen and read the length.

As a leveling stick

Ever wanted to see whether a surface is level or not. You can now do just that by simply putting your android device on the surface you need to measure. "Spirit level plus" app allows you to do just that. It makes very good readings once it is calibrated. It might be pointless for someone but hey, it will do its job for your home / college projects. It is one of those things you never thought your android device can do. But these kinds of apps prove that only human imagination is the limit when it comes to making mobile apps.

Locate where you parked your car

This one was a life saver for me. I have a very short term memory. Especially when it comes to parking cars in a unfamiliar place, I often waste a few minutes figuring out where I parked my car(especially if the parking lot is huge). I guess there are other people like me who will find this app useful. The name of the app is MyCar Locator Free. It is the easiest to use car locator on the market according to the apps creator. The app remembers where you park with the push of just one button and guides you back to your car easily. It is also great for remembering the location of your hotel, camping spot, or any other location you would like to easily return to later. It works more outdoors than indoors. In fact, it rarely works indoors.

Weather radar

Crazy about tracking weather? There is an android app called radar now which is made just for you. The app fixes your location to display the animated weather radar and current conditions closest to you. The main feature of this app is that it has a simple interface which is really fast. It requires no user input or configuration to retrieve the display. One thing I would change about this app is the ability for the users to input the location. Suppose I am traveling from California to New York and if I want to know the weather condition in NY, then I would have to rely on the conventional websites. There is another app which is in the same market which is called rainy days. Some people like rainy days app more than radar now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick review 100 ways to use your android 16 Feb 2012
By margo b
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good easy to read guide on using android devices. I have quickly read it and bookmarked all the pages I need to go back to. I only currently use my device for reading and would like to exploit it's potential.For anyone like me with limited ITC education this is very helpful. The language is pitched about right as many authors loose my interest with their technical talk earlier on. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn how to use an android.

The book does not provide anything but basic information that is readily available FOC using a basic web search. There is no list of apps available or links to where they can be found let alone any comments about their capabilities, value for money etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor level of information, slanted State-side. 24 Sep 2012
By Nothern Climes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not happy TBH. The preview of the titles seemed to promise much more. It might only be a quid, but I feel it's been money (& time) wasted.

Not a lot of American references, but there are some - not a big deal, but worth mentioning.

The grammar & spelling aren't great (some words run into each other as well) but it's understandable & there are some links for useful(ish) apps. I was hoping for a link or recommended app for using the phone as a mirror (used to exist as an option with some phones) but all the author does is say that yes, they might exist, but why not use the camera (doh!) or buy a reflective sticker & attach it to the back. Hmmm.

On the other hand, the author suggests an app that lets you use your phone as a spirit level, which when camping (for example), might be a useful thing to have.

All-in-all though, not really what I thought it was.

Hope this helps.
