0 comments



The insufficient storage available bug on android is for many people a nuisance. It is a widespread problem among many android users who experience the problem with their devices. It mostly occurs whenever an android user is about to install some apps. The error message ‘Insufficient Storage Available’ will suddenly appear. This is a very common problem with the Android OS since all apps, by default are installed in your phone memory. Coincidentally, the memory on android phones is not very large.

Command # 1:
adb shell pm getInstallLocation
or adb shell pm get-install-location (for ICS versions)
command 1
The output will be 0[auto] by default. Below are the options you have:
0[auto] : Installation to auto location decided by Android OS
1[internal] : Installation to internal storage of mobile

To set SD Card as default install location, run this command:
Command # 2:
adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2
or adb shell pm set-install-location 2 (for ICS versions)

or adb shell pm set-install-location 0 (for ICS versions)
command 3
Run Command # 1 again to verify the install location:
verify install location
You can simply unplug your mobile from PC after setting install location to SD Card. Finally, go to the phone and disable USB debugging and close the command prompt.

How to Hide Last Seen Status on Whatsapp

0 comments

Whatsapp is used by almost everyone who owns a smartphone today. The reason behind its success is simplicity of app and number of features provided by it. It is an instant messaging application which has now updated with time and able to send and receive voice messages as well. Apart from just voice and text messages it is capable of sharing multimedia files like videos , images , songs etc. Because of these features Whatsapp has became much popular.

But it also has a feature which irritates many users i .e. LAST SEEN. So here i will tell you a trick to escape from the time stamp of whatsapp's Last seen feature.



Hide Last Seen In iphone :

In iphone there is a default setting to enable and disable the last seen timestamp of whatsapp messenger which makes it much more easier to hide your last seen status on whatsapp and you dont need to download and install any third party application to hide your last seen status from others.

All you need to do it to upgrade your application to latest version available because the latest update of Whatsapp for Iphone have “Last Seen Timestamp” option. So simply go Settings>> Advanced>>Last Seen Timestamp and turn it OFF.




Hide Last seen in Android :

If you are an Android OS user then there are two methods by which you can hide your last seen status. But they really seems nothing as compared to the above mentioned feature of iphone. But still if you want to get rid of this last seen time stamp you must follow one of these methods.

METHOD 1 - USING NOT LAST SEEN APP :


This is an app of android which disables the network packet data when you wish to hide your last seen status. But the drawback of app is that you can not hide your status while you wish to chat with someone for long time.

Because this app basically disconnects your handset from packet data when you enter whatsapp, so servers of whatsapp dont get your status that you are using it and then after reading the messages when you close the whatsapp , it again enables the internet active automatically so in this way you get to read the messages from your contacts without being noticed by whatsapp servers and hence your last seen status is not updated.

You can download Not last seen app for your android phone from here : DOWNLOAD



METHOD 2 - MANUALLY


1. Go to settings and Disable your cellphone’s Interent and Wifi.
2. Open Whatsapp. Read and send messages.
3. Close Whatsapp, now enable Internet and Wifi. 

As soon as the Internet connectivity re-initialized , Whatsapp will synchronize with the servers and the messages will be sent without the server getting to know your last online status update.

Unfortunately for our Blackberry and Windows phone users, there is no such method other than Manual at this moment. However in the past, Blackberry had an app known as OpenWhatsapp for hiding Last Seen, but it has been discontinued by its developers. But stay tuned, we will find some trick for these two very soon.

How to Run Android Apps on a PC Using Bluestacks

2 comments


BlueStacks App Player is a versatile program that bridges the gap between mobile and desktop by allowing users to run their favorite Android apps on their Windows or Mac OS X devices. An innovative "Cloud Connect" feature allows you to push apps from your Android device to Bluestacks, and vice versa. First released to the public in 2011, the program has continued to grow, and is currently free for download in its current beta form. Want to get a taste of Android on your desktop? Here's how to set up BlueStacks, as well as a rundown of some of its controls and interesting features.

1. Installing BlueStacks

BlueStacks App Player is available for Windows and OSX computers, and is a quick, compact install to your boot drive (there's no option in the installer to go to a different drive or directory). The only choice you make during the install is whether to allow the program to make notifications, as well as the option to opt in to BlueStacks Spotlight, which holds daily app giveaways.

2. The Home Screen

Once installed, BlueStacks will boot up to its Home Screen, where you can access your installed apps, look up apps in the "Top Charts," search for apps, and access settings. You can use the mouse for basic touch controls here, with clicking and holding to simulate basic tap and swipe controls. From here, we'll need to do a bit more setup before you can get around to installing apps. You'll need to set up access to the Google Play store and associate a Google Account with BlueStacks.

3. Setting up the App Store

With BlueStacks installed, the first thing you'll want to do is associate a Google Account so that you can get onto the Google Play store and download apps. Go to "My Apps" and click on "1-Click Sync Setup," which will bring up a wizard interface that will guide you through the process. Basically, you'll need to either create a Google account, or sign in with your existing one.

4. Setting up BlueStacks Cloud Connect

An optional step for users with an Android smartphone or tablet is to set up BlueStacks Cloud Connect, an app that allows you to push apps from your Android device to BlueStacks, and vice versa. Download Cloud Connect for your Android device, and then go to the Settings button on BlueStacks and click on "Cloud Connect".
If you have an Android phone, input an email address as well as your phone number. You will then receive instructions via email and SMS on how to connect your phone to Bluestacks, push apps, and sync SMS.
If you're running an Android tablet, you instead just use an email address to synch BlueStacks with your device. After registering BlueStacks Cloud Connect, you should receive an email containing a PIN number, which you input into the Cloud Connect app.
You should now be able to push apps between your device and BlueStacks. You're essentially istalling the same app on your desktop and mobile device, without syncing app data (such as login credentials or game progress). Still, it's an easy way to copy apps from your device to BlueStacks, or vice versa.

5. Installing & Running Apps

If you're not going to sync apps to and from your Android device, you can just use the built in App Search to search for and install apps from Google Play, Amazon, or 1Mobile.
It may seem confusing at first, but BlueStacks won't let you get to its three built-in app markets directly. You'll need to go through the App Search button. Type in the name of the app you're looking for, and it will search 1Mobile, Amazon, and Google Play for matches, and give you the option to install apps from any of the above three stores.
Once you've accessed one of the three app stores, you can then navigate that store. Within Google Play, for instance, you can take advantage of the store's search and other features.
Once you return to the Home Screen, your newly installed app should be ready to run. BlueStacks can run an impressive variety of apps from social networking tools and multimedia apps to games. However, BlueStacks won't run everything, so expect a little trial and error for compatibility.

6. Controls & Settings

You should now have everything you need to install and run apps from BlueStacks, so we'll finish up with some extra notes on in-app controls, as well as settings. Unless you happen to be running a touchscreen rig or a Windows 8 tablet, you're going to need some way to approximate pinch to zoom, as well as tilt controls.
Pinch to Zoom: Control +, or Control -
Tilt Controls: 'Z' or 'X' can be used to simulate tilting a device left or right.
BlueStacks supports the use of gamepad controls for many apps, which will be a godsend for users looking to play Android games on a PC. Plug in your controller, and Bluestacks should inform you if a particular app supports a controller.
Finally, the Settings menu (gear icon) contains assorted system settings for language, keyboard settings, contacts and account management, and an app manager for uninstalling applications and setting their default sizes.
There's your quick visual tour of the BlueStacks App Player. It may not run every Android app perfectly, but BlueStacks puts you just a mouse click away from thousands of compelling choices.
