How To Track Lost Device

You probably know how it feels when you are losing of your device. Its pretty because we have so many important stuff there. The device itself is not too important because we could get it back if we talk to our service, but how about our important data? I guess everything would be lost and there is huge chance that we are not going able to find it.  Now everything is much different because of the huge development of software and hardware. Now we could track our device anywhere we want even if it’s stolen as long as it’s connected to the internet. I have some good apps recommendation that you can try now.

Family Locator

The app itself is pretty interesting because we are not only able to track of your device, but also your friends and even your family. First, you have to input their device and then it should be ready to be tracked.  The app it’s free to download, but it lacks the feature for erasing the data if the phone is stolen.

Android Device Manager

Android Device Manager is provided by Google to track our lost phone as long as you already connect it with your Google account. You need to activate it on the setting and then the tracking is working and it’s pretty accurate, thanks to their Gmaps. One thing that I love here, we could see our phone on any browser so you don’t need to download their app. Go to their website and enter your account. You would see some simple bars that will let you doing anything including tracking, erase data, and give the message.

Cerberus

Cerberus has been popular for this case, but the app is not totally free because you are going to pay some extra bucks in order to fully activate the service. Its tough, but it’s a really great app and worth for the money. Locking the phone, resetting it, making alarm are only some of its great features that you want to see on your smartphone. They keep updating their app, it means the feature and security might be improved as well.

Every app has their own plus and minus. Some of them are free and many of them need money to get some extra features. It does not mean bad because you are pay for its greatness. There is nothing to lose, but it backs to your choice on deciding.

 

Screen Mirroring App To TV For Android

Have you ever thought that your smartphone screen is too small to watch any movie? I thought the same thing for many times since I cannot really enjoy watching movie in small screen. I could go buying a new tablet, but I pretty much need to spend much money on it and I don’t want it to happen because there are lots of things that I need to consider in my life. I guess you also have many other things to consider rather than buying a new gadget. I feel lot saver when I heard there is an app which is able to stream everything that I do to my TV. It’s pretty much a live safer since I don’t have to buy a new device. The name of app itself is Screen Stream Mirroring. The app is free to download and you can download it on Play Store. I am sorry that I don’t have any recommendation for IOS because I could not afford the device, so I cannot tell you. The function of the app is pretty much simple since you are able to stream anything including movies, your apps and even your games.

I am stick with free version on this review and there is paid version for more features and support, but for me the free version is much capable on streaming anything. I tested the app on Android version 5.0 and it’s working very well. You only need to do some setup which is easy to do and you are ready to play anything. There is two ways on connecting of your device to TV. The first one is by using the Chromecast if you have it or WIFI is also available if you don’t have that thing. I would give 4 starts for this app because of the capability is so much here and there is no limitation that you are going to face. They also make a really good tutorial and easier to follow even though if people are not too familiar with the tech. The only thing that keeps annoying me is the ads pop up. There are too many apps that showed up and sometimes breaking my mood. You also need to do some special start up if you are using Android 5.0 because for some reasons application is not working pretty well if you just launch the app. But for me it’s pretty more than enough to enjoy my weekend while watching movie.
