App 2 SD: transfer your apps on the SD card

When you want to make a little space on the internal memory of your phone, one of the first things to do is move your applications from memory to the SD card in your smartphone. The problem is that it takes quite a while since you have to do it manually, application by application. App 2 SD offers your convenience.

The concept is simple and effective. App 2 SD will automatically search all apps installed on your phone and you will sort them into categories.

You navigate and from three different tabs:
    "Movable" means that you can move apps to SD card
    «On SD card" apps already installed on your SD card but you can once again back on the phone's internal memory
    "Phone only" apps that can not be transferred to the SD card

Behind each tab, you will find is the list of apps in question, their number and, below, a gauge that tells you the place you have left on the internal memory or SD card.

App 2 SD is actually a graphical interface that refers you to the settings for each application. You just have to touch an app icon and select the desired option: move the SD card or to internal memory of the smartphone. Do not expect however to be able to change the location of the native apps that are not transferable (such as Google Maps, Facebook or Gmail). App 2 SD does not allow it. Too bad.

The Galaxy Nexus is one of the most powerful mobile time

Choose a new mobile, it is not easy. We must of course take into account its general appearance but also its performance, not to mention its platform. In short, it is often a real headache, but to help us make the right decision, it is possible to rely on product testing and more particularly on the benchmarks.

And the guys are just AnandTech managed to get hold of a Galaxy Nexus and they obviously have opportunity to test the beast. And you want to know? If we are to believe their results, then the Galaxy Nexus is one of the most powerful mobile time. But be careful because you have all the same perspective ...

 To recap, the Galaxy Nexus offers a 4.65-inch 720p screen, a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 Ghz, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB of storage space and a lot of nice stuff like a 5-megapixel sensor , WiFi, FM radio, the NFC and so on. So it is a mobile technical features very correct, especially as its processor is supported by a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU. Not bad, but so far no one had yet had the opportunity to submit it to the benchmarks. In other words, the tests conducted by AnandTech may therefore be of interest to people.

 On SunSpider, the Galaxy Nexus therefore reaches the top spot with a score of 1879 and therefore before the Motorola Razr Droid (2067), the iPhone 4S (2250) or the iPhone 4 (3545). Even the Samsung Galaxy S 2 is a little behind with a score by 3634. Same with BrowserMarks where the new Google Mobile manages once again to win the prize.

However, it is closely followed by the iPhone 4S, the Razr and the Galaxy Droid S 2.The OpenGL ES 2.0 test did not succeed, however. On the latter, it is indeed the iPad 2 which comes first, then the iPhone 4S, then the Galaxy S 2 and finally there is the Galaxy Nexus.

 But it is also particularly important to emphasize is that the Nexus Google is currently the only mobile to run officially as Ice Cream Sandwich. And that's just very important since the latest version of Android is much better optimized than the old. And in my humble opinion, if all androphones listed in these tables had taken advantage of this update, so there is no doubt that the results of these benchmarks have been very different.

HTC Zeta: the anti-iPhone 4S?

Rumor classic or simple delusion of a user, the HTC Zeta displays the most powerful configurations with Android 4.0 and quad-core processor at 2.5 GHz.
 Simple concept or real leak? Anyway here is the Zeta. This smartphone that Engadget published visual characteristics, if it becomes reality, promises to be the most powerful of the market and it is signed HTC.

 The configuration is breathtaking: 4.5 inch touch screen (1280 x 720 points), a quad-CPU Snapdragon heart at 2.5 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, a camera of 8 megapixel camera on the front of a , 3 million pixels, Wi-Fi 802.11n, the latest standard Bluetooth, GPS and 32GB of storage internally.

 For the operating system, Android would find 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), while his party would be provided by Beats Audio following the acquisition of the brand of Dr Dre by HTC. We remain cautious about the credibility of this information

Samsung Galaxy Nexus: voice commands, battery, Flash Player and benchmarks

Let's start with one of the features that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is currently exclusive to Galaxy Nexus, wanted to improve over previous versions, we are talking about the voice command, namely speed of dictation of texts.

This feature, also present on Gingerbread, has been improved in this version of 'Google OS, resulting in exceptionally accurate.

Here's a video test done in English, performed by SlashGear, which shows how the speech recognition app will be able to easily handle the language with great precision. (Voice recognition requires a data connection to communicate with Google servers).

Galaxy Nexus: no USB mass storage

Galaxy Nexus is now on the agenda, but this time we do not want to speak only of the smartphone itself, but a "problem" that plagues the entire operating system Android Ice Cream Sandwich . The tests carried out on devices Galaxy Nexus test was taken a major change in the organization of internal memory that we explain after the jump.

From the beginning we used to see two different Android devices in our memory, one of mass (for images, videos, music, etc..) And one for applications, on Ice Cream Sandwich this does not happen.

Starting from Android 4.0 (Honeycomb but also with regard to tablet), in fact, no longer exist any division between personal data and apps, but it will all together in a 'unique internal memory, this was not, however, exclude the fact your phone can have a MicroSD. As you well know, in fact, does not have a MicroSD Galaxy Nexus as it will have a single 16GB internal memory (32GB and later), this, according to Google, would facilitate the management of memory by the user, who will no longer worry about internal memory runs out quickly.

Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Nexus S

As expected, and come out the new ROMs with Android 4.0 and after upgrading OS SDK by engineers from Google .
The first was the brand new Nexus S which, as already proposed in a previous post, will update via OTA Android Ice Cream Sandwich , Android 4.
After the sad news that the former flagship of Google, the Nexus One , you will not get the update to be old with 22 months on the market, this news brings new hope to users with root access to Android phones.
Following the release of the new Android SDK to program in, the guys at xda-developers as it could not otherwise have been put to work and it's true that OS in the Nexus S with root access, with occasional bug by not having the drivers compiled perfectly in that OS, but running light and well coupled.

 The ROM is in Beta and are on version 4. By not being released even the source code of the Android OS version, it is difficult to create a fully functional ROM, stable, lightweight and perfectly compiled, but watching the following video we show below, it is very likely that when the code is released, Many terminals have root access to be able to apply thanks to people like xda-developers already researched and tested with it.
By the time this review number 4 contains some bugs in apks as GPS, Bluetooth, Panorama function of the House and facial recognition and the transfer rate of USB, Flash Player and a few more. All these problems are being corrected in the next revision called No. 5 in which they are working and that's coming out shortly as discussed from xda-developers.

Inspired by the Nexus wallpaper of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, is now available on the Android Market. It offers you a beautiful Ice Cream Sandwich experience on your phone. The Ice Cream Sandwich live wallpaper provides a magnificent moving background out of dust,stripes and white particles which are touchable. This live wallpaper runs like a charm on all tested devices due to its RAM efficiency.

Here we bring you a live clone of the official wallpaper of Android 4.0, called Beam Phase, which have added some modifications to make it more eye-catching 3D. The animations are very smooth and not distracting at all. The application is free and works great, but beware the battery consumption such as moving desks tend to consume more than normal and each time the terminals have more power and require a larger battery capacity. You can choose between 6 different themes and you can toggle the noise effect, the 3D scrolling effect, the touch effects and the fade in effect. Additionally you can change the colors for the wallpaper.
