I recently downloaded the Pushbullet app and it has made my writing life easier. Often times when I’m writing I find myself repeating the phrase “I wish I could just…” or “It would be nice if I were able to…” When I hear myself say that too many times its time to go app shopping. As a […]

How I Rooted My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Back in December of 2013 I aired my frustration about Samsung’s bloatware and the inability to install certain apps because I did not have root access to the device.

A little over a year ago I wrote a post regarding cell phone GPS apps. I had a tough time using the on-screen navigation systems and things did not improve over the year. Not only did the GPS use quite a bit of my monthly data allotment, it was cumbersome with plenty of hiccups. Having […]

Save gas and save time by using your smartphone or mobile device to make bank deposits. Why drive to the bank when you can deposit your checks right where you stand (or sit).

Since I’m in the middle of reformatting my computer (that’s a long story), I don’t have access to my usual software. Being that I’m inspired to write, I needed software that would facilitate writing and still be operational on a computer that is not fully functional. Since I have a Google Drive, I thought why […]
