How To Improve Android Battery Life

1. Use Android Power Control widget
Put simply, you’ve got to take control. The best way of maintaining battery life is indeed to dumb-down your all-powerful new phone by switching off features – but do it in a stylish way. Don’t just leave everything turned off all the time, or you may as well still be using a Nokia 6610.
Home screen widgets that flip Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and other power-hungry options on and off with a single press take the pain out of switching features off, while Android 1.6 added Google’s own power icon strip – set it up by long-pressing and installing the Android Power Control widget on your Home screen.

2. Calm down on the status updates
No one’s saying you can’t use your Android phone’s features, but do you really need to be pinged every two minutes about a new Tweet or email? Lower the notification frequency in any apps that constantly update you on the minutiae of everything everyone does, ever, and you’ll maybe still have a bit of battery left by bed time. So you can tweet that it’s your bed time. Then tweet ‘night night’.

3. Switch off auto-sync
If you’re not a power-user of the Google life-management apps, turn them off. If you can live without Google Calendar and Gmail, it’s possible to do away with auto-sync altogether – just remember to manually sync your Contacts every once in a while, in case you drop your phone in a toilet.
The app MySettings will give you numerous little toggle switches and let you turn auto-sync on and off easily, if you like the idea of having a whole screen full of power-saving icons.

4. Disable 3G connectivity
Good old 2G is perfect for calls and texts, so kill 3G unless you’re planning a bit of emergency web browsing on your phone. You’ll also benefit from the general feeling of increased calmness that follows naturally once you’ve stopped staring at the 3G icon every two minutes and fretting about what your mobile network connection state is.

5. Lower the screen brightness
As impressive as it might be to have your stunning OLED screen blazing out so much light that the current inhabitants of the International Space Station have to squint and lower the sun visors when you wake it up, it’s completely unnecessary. If you’re inside, Android’s default 0% brightness setting ought to do. Again, install a brightness widget on your desktop, for easy access when you do need a visibility boost.

6. Turn off GPS
GPS is a monster power-drainer, and it’s barely of any use most of the time. Is it? Really? Even famed mobile-sensitive app Foursquare can do a good enough job of tracking you down via approximations based on which mobile masts you’re connected to, so unless you’re actually doing a bit of serious satnav action, switch it off. You’ll be able to hear your battery sigh with relief. Seriously. Try holding your phone to your ear as you uncheck the box.

7. Monitor everything
Android 1.6 introduced a menu that lets users see precisely where their battery life is going, with the OS giving you a percentage breakdown of what sucked away all your phone’s power in the final few minutes before you actually wanted to use it. Like a mobile black box recorder.
The ‘Battery Use’ tab under Settings/About Phone will give you a detailed breakdown of what’s absorbing the most power, letting you take manual control – and delete any power-hungry apps. Try replacing them with alternatives and see if there’s a difference. One rogue app that sucks power on your particular phone could be the problem.

8. Set a Wi-Fi timeout
There’s a semi-hidden ‘Advanced’ Wi-Fi management screen in Android, accessed by navigating to your phone’s ‘Wi-fi Settings’ tab and then pressing the Menu button. From here, you’re able to manually select a timeout option for the Wi-Fi connection – one of the biggest power drains on idle phones.
It may make your phone take longer to connect to Wi-Fi when you wake it up, and therefore feel a little less ‘smart’, but at least it’ll still be significantly smarter than a lump of useless plastic with a dead battery.

9. Go Gothic
Modern popular thinking has it that phone screens, particularly OLED versions, use more energy when displaying brighter, whiter colours. So go Gothic. Ditch that vibrant wallpaper and select a nice, dark Home screen background, then enjoy not having to reach for the charger for at least an extra minute every day.

10. Install a time-sensitive power manager
There are plenty of time and location sensitive apps on the Android Market which automatically handle your phone’s power and communications settings. For example, there’s no point leaving your phone connected to the mobile network while you’re asleep – so a simple app like Airplane Autoswitch, which kills all radio communications, will save loads of power and also help you sleep uninterrupted by notification pings.
Set it to activate Airplane mode at your usual bedtime, then get it to fire itself up again when you wake up. Simple, and your battery will make it through the night with only a minuscule drain.

11. Put your phone somewhere there’s a good reception
Your phone uses more power when it’s seeking a mobile mast connection, so, believe it or not, your battery will last much longer if you leave your phone in a place where it gets a good reception. Put it on the other side of your desk, or on the windowsill. It will make a difference.
An app like Antennas will give you a ridiculously detailed summary of your phone’s current network connectivity state and all the masts in the area, if you fancy locating the optimum low-power placement within a three-mile radius of your home.

12. Don’t drain the battery
The old advice to completely drain your battery to ensure proper operation doesn’t stand any more, thanks to modern lithium-ion batteries. They don’t have the charge memory issues that affected previous generation cells, and in fact perform better if you regularly charge them and keep them topped up.

13. Buy an in-car charger
And leave it in the car. Buy a spare one and leave it in a friend’s car. Also leave USB cables everywhere. And get a spare battery. And a spare spare battery. There’s no guaranteed way to beat the system. It will be flat the one time you fall down a cliff and need help.

Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot v1.0

Classic pinball at its best; fantastic physics, great sound and fast gameplay!

Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot is classic pinball at its best; with fantastic physical feel, great sound and realistic gameplay. And a bit rugged and worn from its years of use in the arcades, as it should be.

The Intergalactical Rob-O-Bot has invaded Femtopia and is laying waste to this once peaceful city of the future. No-one knows why or where he comes from. It’s not important. Just help Bazooka Commandrix Betty to save the metropolis from destruction! ...But beware, the Rob-O-Bot is programmed for REVENGE!!

- Fast-paced gameplay and realistic physics
- 5 challenging missions to roll through
- Fantastic visuals and glistering light shows
- Great retro display animations
- Up to 5 balls multiball
- 10 evil Rob-O-Bots to defeat
- Tons of combos, bonuses and multipliers
- Tilt with style, be be careful not to overdo it
- Global high score list

Designed by Color Monkey, powered by Nena.

How to play
There is no “one way” to play a pinball game. Most things give you points and points are what you are trying to get.

Shoot the ramps and hit everything that blinks, especially blinking arrows. Combos are the best and so are jackpots. And don’t forget to increase your bonus ‘cause that will certainly give you a lot more points in the end.

Your main goal is to defeat the evil Rob-O-Bot and you do that by completing all the missions. There are five of them and you start them by entering the Mission controll. If you are not in a mission, the mission control is always opened. Hit it, and follow the instructions.

Good luck!

- Use one flipper at the time
- After you've flipped, drop the flipper back down immediately
- In general, don't flip any more than you need to
- Push the device upwards to tilt
- Watch and listen to the game while you play to learn the rules

SMS Spy Deluxe v1.3.3

SMS Spy Deluxe is the extension of the popular Android app SMS Spy. With SMS Spy Deluxe you can spy, lock and wipe the phone, SMS Spy Deluxe is installed on, with just a simple SMS.

You also receive a simple SMS with location and provider details, if/when the SIM card in your phone has been changed or you can let your phone play a noisy sound with a SMS, even if the sound has been deactivated before.

And if you have activated the NEW Move Protection feature of SMS Spy Deluxe, your phone plays a noisy alert, if somebody tries to steal you phone from your unobserved desk.

Additional features compared to SMS Spy:

1. Increased de-installation security via 'Android Device Adminstrator'
2. Password protection for SMS Spy Deluxe
3. Wipe/Reset your phone with a SMS
4. Sound Alert on your phone with a SMS
5. IM card change detection

No need for a special app for the locator or for registering for a special service. Just install SMS Spy Deluxe on your phone, and if you've lost your phone or it has been stolen, just use any phone with simple SMS functionality to locate your phone.

SMS Spy Deluxe for Android is mainly a background service and needs to work no explicit starting. If you have once activated SMS Spy Deluxe in the preference screen, SMS Spy is always on, even after a reboot!
To be fair: SMS Spy Deluxe is no 100% protection against lost or theft. There are still available means to bypass the protection for skilled people, but it's far more than no protection.

SMS Spy Deluxe includes no (hidden) behavior, that hasn't been documented here. It uses for 100% the official Android APIs and doesn't replace or change anything within you phone.
SMS Spy doesn't track or save anything, neither does it report anything to anybody, not even to us, the developers of SMS Spy Deluxe.
And after de-installtion of SMS Spy Deluxe nothing of this app will remain on your phone!

SMS Spy Deluxe is (a new) software, and the nature of software is: It usually contains bugs. Thus we can't guarantee that it will always work properly and on any Android device (there are so many out there, we can't test them all).
But please feel free to contact us whenever you like, ask and report bugs (especially before you comment).
