Android Tips

These tips are OS dependant meaning they might not work on your revision.  Who knows, just give them a try.

Prefer not to be bothered by a sound every time an e-mail arrives? Head into Gmail's Settings menu and set its ringtone to Silent. You'll still see new-message alerts in the notification panel at the top of your screen, and you can always pull the panel down to get detailed information. You can configure text messaging and other alert-generating apps the same way.

 


 

Make file management a snap with a utility such as Astro, which allows you to browse through your phone just as you would a computer, navigating directories and moving or deleting files at will.

 


 

 Need to cut and paste text? Long-press on any text input area. If you're on a Web page, tap the Menu key and use the Select text option

 


 

You can see the current date at any time by touching your finger to the top-left corner of the screen.

 


 

 If the on-screen keyboard pops up when you don't want it, touch it and swipe downward to make it disappear.

 


 

Want to have your PC's browser bookmarks on your Android phone? Download MyBookmarks from the Market to import them.

 


 

Keep annoying callers away by routing them directly to your voicemail. First, open the offending person's profile in your contacts list. Then, press the Menu button, tap Options, and check the Incoming calls box.

 


 

The Incoming Calls screen also holds the option for setting custom ringtones for callers. Tap Ringtone and change each person's tune as you wish.

 


 

Want to use your own MP3 files as ringtones? No problem: Make a new folder on your memory card and name it ringtones. Copy your MP3s there, and they will automatically show up in your selection list. Folders called alarms or notifications will do the same thing for those respective functions.

 


 

Take full advantage of your phone's LED by installing Missed Call, which configures your phone's light to flash specific colors when calls from certain people slip by.
