With the launch of the new iPhone 6s and 6s plus, Apple once again impresses with new features that set them a step ahead. The 3D Touch feature is a world’s first and provides various useful tools to assist users in everyday tasks.

iPhone’s 3D Touch

Apple has taken the extra step and created and entire new display that measures the amount of force placed on the screen. This allowing the developer to set various options depending on the pressure. For example; before a soft or hard tap on the camera app would only open the camera and allow users to take pictures, but now you can tap softly to open the quick menu where options such as take selfie, record video, record slo-mo or take a picture are presented. Thus giving users the ability to access the feature they desire within the app instantly.

The 3D Touch also allows a peek function. This will allow a hover screen to be open when pressing on pictures, emails, websites, Facebook pages and much more. Once again the amount of pressure applied is crucial as users can get a quick view into emails to see content without opening the email. This feature has proven very beneficial while searching for certain files or emails on the device. We are expecting many more features to become available with 3D Touch, which will only make it more useful and enjoyable with future smartphones.

Apple has managed to impress with all of their devices launched over the years. The world-renowned mega company has been a leader in both mobile and computer devices and have managed to stay ahead with some unique features. Android might be bigger, but is supported by multiple mobile companies such as Samsung, LG, Blackberry, Sony and more, whereas Apple has always been independent and offered used amazing features that can only be utilized by those with Apple devices.

Real-Time GPS Tracker app

The Real-Time GPS Tracker app is completely free and only available on Android devices. This allows users to share real-time location details with each other no matter where you are. Using a GPS signal, which is stronger than a data signal, you will be able to track approved family members and see their exact location.

The app provides many settings that can adjust privacy or when someone will be able to track you. With family members and loved ones, the apps allow tracking without the other person interaction. This feature is excellent when loved ones cannot be contacted or while they are driving. The app will update on their locations within seconds once logged in.

As an additional security measure, the app can be used to track children’s location. Once again users can see exactly where the mobile device is where it’s headed. The apps also include the ability to lock the device in case of theft, which will then require a matching password before the phone will become useful again. Users can also take advantage of remote control over the mobile device in this case to remove all data from the phone to ensure sensitive information is protected.

There are a few of these apps available, but not quite as many with all the features offered by Real-Time GPS Tracker that are free. Unfortunately, the app is unavailable with iPhones, which means all users need to have Android devices or access Google Maps on a PC to track allowed devices. We are hoping the developer will create and iOS app that allows users with either iOS or Android to enjoy the features offered.

Pushbullet announcing a paid version of its service appeared fair yet the method the company used to handle the transition is what caused users to be upset. As a substitute of introducing new features for the pro version, Pushbullet relocated previously free features and locked it behind their paywall. These previously free features included universal notification mirroring, copy and paste and unlimited messages. The new price per month is also quite heady at US$4.99 a month, plus upsettingly there was no grace period for existing users to purchase a subscription at a discounted price.

Users had no choice but to pay or look for alternatives and thankfully, a praiseworthy alternative arrived on the scene. Join went live across all platforms recently, including Chrome, Android, Windows 10, web and has already proven itself to be a lot more versatile than Pushbullet. Even though the service is still in its embryonic stage and cannot currently measure up to the pretty offered by Pushbullet’s it is overall a superior service that appeals to mobile users and it’s available at an affordable a one-time payment of US$3.99.

Join offers pushing images, links, clipboard, messages and when tested everything worked with only minor occasional hiccups. All files are shared through Google Drive and stored in a dedicated folder, allowing you to go back and access them at any time from any device.

The service allows you to automatically share anything that is copied to your clipboard, reply to messages from within notifications, set images as backgrounds on remote devices, and pretty much anything else you might wish to do with such a service.
