1. Multitask better by loading links in the background.
Flynx for Android is an app that lets you load web links in the background on your device. Whenever you come across a link in any app on your device and you click on it, it will load in the background instead of taking you to the web browser to show the webpage. That way you can focus on the work that you are currently doing with the app and see the webpage when you are done.
Here’s how you can use the app on your device.
1. Download and install Flynx from the Google Play store on your device.
2. Launch the app from your app drawer. It will walk you through the features showing what it can do.
3. Now launch an app that has a web link you can click on. It will check if the app is working properly and if it is really loading links in the background on your device.
I have opened an email in the Gmail app to demonstrate the functionality of the app.
4. Click on the link, and you will be asked what app you would like to launch the link in. At this stage choose “Flynx” from the list, and tap on “Just once” to load the link in the background on your device. You can choose “Always” instead of “Just once” should you want all of your links to always load in the background.
2. Set up automatic phone unlock when you’re at home.
- On your device, open the Settings app .
- Scroll down to “Personal” and tap Security.
- Scroll down to “Advanced” and tap Trust agents. Make sure “Smart Lock” is switched on.
- Scroll up to “Device security” and tap Smart Lock.
- Enter your screen lock. If you don’t already have one set up, follow the on-screen prompts to set up a password, PIN, or pattern. You need to enter this screen lock any time you want to change your Smart Lock settings.
3. You can Can Actually plug a mouse (wireless or wired) into your phone.
- Mouse: Connect a mouse and you will see a familiar mouse cursor appear on your screen. The cursor can be used to navigate through Android’s interface, clicking on things you’d normally tap. It works just like it would on a computer. Of course, you can also still reach out and touch the screen while the mouse is connected.
- Keyboard: Your keyboard should just work when typing in text fields, allowing you to type at a reasonable speed on a mechanical keyboard and see more of the screen by removing the need for the on-screen, touch keyboard. Many keyboard shortcuts work like they do on computers, including Alt+Tab for switching between recent apps and Ctrl + X, C, or V for Cut, Copy, and Paste.
