I am not impressed with neowin search at all so i rarely like to use it...

However its strange that i completely missed this thread.

Still, most of the stuff there is older posts, only a few more or less recent.

So i still welcome suggestions on the newer apps.

Here or in the other thread, does not matter to me.

You know an app you love post it.

pushbullet .. for getting and responding to texts from my computer .. also alerts you of any notification that is on your phone on your computer including but not limited to incoming phone calls, when your phone is not next to you. (The most handy thing ever) I recommend disabling all notifications and turning on just the ones you want.

send-anywhere for sending stuff from my computer to my phone and vis versa

Silence Premium for muting my phone when I sleep or take a nap.

Unread Badge widget for showing me how many new emails I have in each of my 5 gmail accounts

Event reminder makes my phone go off when a calender event comes due.



Textra Just my personal favorite Text messaging Application. I just love how easy it is to create a new text message and choose who you want to send it too. Its .99 for life for no ads.

Parkopedia - Help finding places to park your car.

Velociraptor - Overlay for Google Maps showing current speed from GPS info.



Podcast Addict



Avira Optimizer


FAST (Speed checker)

WiFi Analyzer


Android Oreo Specific:

Hide "using battery" Notification - As describes, this hides the notifications that x apps are using battery.

No Signal Alert - Oreo notifies/vibrates the phone every time it loses and regains signal. I work in a place with intermittent signal and it's extremely annoying.

Depends what you're into and what you like.


I use HERE maps instead of Waze as I've used Here since Windows Phone days and found it pretty good.


I use ColorNote, which is one of the most simplistic notes apps I've found. I didn't want anything fancy, just an easy way to save text.


I also have FlightRadar24 for nosiness on what planes are above me. That's a recent addition.


Adaway (needs root) is a good one though. Only had it about 6 months but has actually been quite useful.

Some of my favourite apps include Wifi Analyzer, Sandbox, FlightRadar24, Subway Surfers and Instagram. I have a folder which includes CPU-Z, IP Tools, Who's On My Wifi, AIDA64 and XDA. I have an app called Files which I find good for file management and freeing up storage space.😁

      Google Duo might soon stop working on unsupported Android devices
      by Jay Bonggolto

      A recent update to Google Messages was found containing a string that indicated the app would stop working on uncertified Android devices starting March 31. This was spotted courtesy of XDA Developers' teardown of the app's version 7.2.203.

      The change could be due to the rollout of end-to-end encryption feature for Rich Communication Service (RCS) messages. Now, a new app teardown by the folks at 9to5Google suggests that Google Duo will also stop working on unsupported Android phones in the future.

      This was found on the latest version of Duo (version 123), which contains the following notice:

      The app’s code also indicates that this upcoming change is related to “GmsCompliance" or Google Mobile Services (GMS). It's basically a collection of Google applications and APIs that support functionality across devices. Currently, even phones that are not certified to run GMS like those from Huawei can still use Duo.

      When the upcoming change takes effect, Android phones that are not certified to use Play Services may soon be unable to run Duo. It remains unclear, though, when the app will stop working on unsupported devices.

      Google Messages might stop working on uncertified Android devices starting March 31
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Google Messages is a popular messaging app that is installed on more than a billion devices, an impressive feat considering that not every Android device comes pre-installed with the app. The offering serves as a viable alternative to OEM-provided messaging apps on non-Pixel devices. The search giant’s offering can also be sideloaded on devices that are not certified for running Google Mobile Services (GMS), meaning that even devices like those from Huawei – which no longer ship with GMS – can leverage the app.

      That might be changing soon, if a string in the Messages app spotted by the folks over at XDA Developers is to be believed. A teardown of the app points to a “compliance warning message” that implies that the app will stop working on uncertified devices starting March 31. The mention was spotted on a teardown of version 7.2.203.

      The publication speculates that this change is being made due to the end-to-end encryption feature that is rolling out for Rich Communication Service (RCS) messages. The inability to vet uncertified devices or ascertain if they are compromised – due to the lack of Play services – might pose a risk for users. This means that starting April 1, uncertified phones could begin losing the ability to run Messages and users must look for alternate services.

      It is not clear when the updated version of the Messages app will make it to all users with the compliance warning. While the change should affect only a small number of users, it further helps make the service a secure alternative for RCS messaging.

      by Jay Bonggolto

The devices are powered by octa-core processors, although Samsung didn't specify each of the phones' chipsets. That said, we know from the company's previous announcement that the Galaxy A12 is powered by MediaTek's Helio P35 SoC.

      Both the Galaxy A12 and A32 5G have a quad-camera setup on the back. The A12's camera module consists of a 48MP main sensor, 5MP ultra-wide shooter, 2MP macro sensor, and 2MP depth sensor. The A32 5G also features a 48MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide camera, 5MP macro sensor, and 2MP depth sensor.

      Samsung's rugged Galaxy Tab Active3 is now available in the U.S.
      by João Carrasqueira

      Samsung first introduced the Galaxy Tab Active3 last September, as the latest member of its lineage of rugged tablets for the enterprise. Today, the company has announced that the tablet is now available to buy in the United States, and it's the first one to come with an Enterprise Edition that offers one year of Knox Suite and up to five years of security updates.

      Samsung also promises up to three generations of Android upgrades, which will be welcome considering it still ships with Android 10. Samsung plans to deliver an update to Android 11 that will also add the device to Google's list of Android Enterprise Recommended devices. The tablet also supports Samsung DeX for users that may want to connect it to a larger screen and have a desktop-like experience.

      In terms of the hardware, it's the same device we already know of. It's meant to be durable, with a MIL-STD-810H certification and IP68 water and dust resistance rating. The included S Pen is equally durable with the same IP rating, and the tablet itself has a display with enhanced sensitivity that lets you use the screen with gloves. Another feature that businesses might appreciate is the user-replaceable 5050mAh battery, and support for a no-battery mode, for situations where the tablet might be permanently attached to a power source.

      As for the specs, the tablet is powered by an Exynos 9810 octa-core chipset, 4GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage. The display is an 8-inch panel with Full HD+ resolution (1920x1200), and the rear camera is 13MP, while on the front there's a 5MP shooter.

      The Galaxy Tab Active3 comes in Wi-Fi-only and LTE models, starting at $489.99 for the former, and $589.99 for the latter. It's available to buy today.

      Honor reportedly working on a new device lineup with support for Google's services
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Back in November last year, Huawei sold its Honor brand to a Chinese consortium owing to the stress created on its supply chain caused by the U.S. trade bans and the firm’s inability to source key components for its phones. The sale would allow the company to not only conserve resources for its own phones but also for Honor’s buyers to develop hardware using parts sourced from the likes of Qualcomm and software from Google.

      Now, a new report from Kommersant, a Russian publication, suggests that Honor is working on a new device lineup with support for Google services. The possible addition of Google’s Play Store coupled with the fact that the firm is no longer being owned by Huawei might also result in the devices dropping Huawei’s AppGallery, the publication adds. These phones are expected to make it to the Russian market in the spring, though availability and plans for other regions are currently not known.

      The report also adds that the lack of GMS has adversely affected the Honor brand in Russia, citing an earlier report that suggests that the brand held the second position in terms of unit sales in 2019, which was taken over by Xiaomi. The inclusion of Google Mobile Service (GMS) and the now-removed trade blocks for business with the likes of Qualcomm could greatly improve the sales of the devices in Russia and elsewhere.

      While it is no surprise that the new owners of the Honor brand expect to begin shipping devices with Google’s services, it will be interesting to see if the company continues bundling Huawei’s AppGallery with the phones. The report speculates that the removal of Huawei’s store might reduce developer efforts for that company. Additionally, it is highly unlikely that Honor’s upcoming flagship, expected to be called the V40, will bring support for Google’s services.
