features that make android lollipop worth the upgrade

The latest version of Android is a big upgrade. Android 5.0 Lollipop is here and beginning to make its way to more and more devices as manufacturers and carriers slowly send out updates.
I have dig a little deeper into a handful of the most compelling new features and upgrades that make the fifth major revision of Android the sweetest yet.


ART makes everything better

That's not Warhol, that's Android RunTime (ART), which is the new run-time environment that completely replaces the old Dalvik VM in Lollipop. Google claims that ART "improves app performance and responsiveness" and is 64-bit compatible.
ART seems to deliver the goods. Even with Lollipop's focus on animations all the time in Material design, apps run smoothly and with almost no lag, even when moving quickly among multiple running apps in the new overview screen (formerly recent apps, overview is Lollipop's new multitasking center).
There is a minor downside to this official switch to ART though, which is that compatible apps are typically going to take up more storage space.

Android RunTime enables the many animations found in Lollipop


Pinning is power for parents

I find that the ability to "pin" a single screen or app – essentially locking a user out of all the phone's other functions temporarily – is the real star in a suite of new security and sharing features.
To pin a screen, you'll first have to turn the feature on in your security settings. Then open the app or screen you want to pin and hit the overview button (better known as "recent apps" in previous Android versions). Drag the app, document or tab (on certain devices, Lollipop will allow you to access individual documents or Chrome tabs from overview) to the middle of the screen and a pin icon will appear in the lower right.

Apps can be 'pinned' from overview

Tap that pin and you'll be asked to confirm that you want to pin it. Once it's pinned, you can hand your phone to your child, frenemy or whoever without having to worry that they'll go rooting around your personal data, access something inappropriate or mess with your settings. You'll want to be sure to set up a pin or other password to get the most out of pinning, as that's the security layer that actually prevents users from "unpinning" whatever screen they're on.
Beyond acting as a parental control, pinning is also useful for setting up a Nexus 9 or other device as a display or demonstration model, say at a conference or trade show of some sort.


The right to remove bloatware

Lollipop comes with a bit of good news on the down low for those of you who could easily do without NFL Mobile and the many other examples of carrier bloatware that find their way onto Android phones.
If you have a phone that is locked to Verizon's network in the United States, you have probably noticed NFL Mobile: it comes installed on all Verizon phones and there is no easy way to uninstall it. While I personally depend on this app, I understand that many of you could care less about how the Denver Broncos did this week, no matter how blasphemous that may seem to me.

Android RunTime makes apps run smoother

Of course, this is just one example of irritating bloatware that sits unused, taking up valuable storage space on many devices. Carriers have a tendency to include their own messaging, navigation and other apps in the system partition of devices, making them much more difficult to uninstall.
Lollipop attempts to quietly address this by being setup to automatically download carrier software from the Google Play Store whenever it detects that SIM card has been inserted. While this seems like Google doing a favor to carriers, which is surely how it was explained to them, it also means that carrier software should be just as easy to uninstall as any other app downloaded from the Play store.


Better battery use

Back at Google I/O in June, Google introduced something called Project Volta, which is basically a collection of tweaks and best practices for developers designed to make Android and apps run more efficiently, draining less juice out of a device's battery along the way.
Evidence of this effort is visualized for Lollipop users in the form of a new, detailed power usage chart and a battery saver mode that Google says will squeeze an extra ninety minutes or so out of each charge, but there's more going on in the back end with Project Volta, too.

Battery usage is more easily monitored

Changes in how a device's various pieces of hardware and software work together reportedly gives Lollipop as much as a 36 percent boost in battery life on last generation devices compared to KitKat.


Apps get full SD card access

You might have noticed starting with Android KitKat that there were some changes to how apps could access different areas of a device's storage, particularly an inserted microSD card. Developers complained about these restrictions, and Google responded in Lollipop by more or less completely opening access to inserted memory cards. This makes it much easier for media-heavy apps to seamlessly store and access photos, video or audio files on a memory card with less hassle.
But perhaps most notably, the change also makes it possible for apps to install themselves entirely on the SD card, which should be a nice way of offsetting the fact that ART-friendly apps now take up more space.

*Just upgrade your phone to android lollipop and enjoy the latest release.

signed in as temporary profile problem in windows 8 and windows 8.1

When Windows Operating System doesn’t read particular user profile settings and files properly during the booting process, it will load with temporary new user profile. That will look like a brand new user profile and have the default desktop and icons. You can’t find your customized desktop with icons, files and program shortcuts, that could shocking for you. Do not worry, your files and folders are safe in your computer. This guide talks about temporary profile in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and how to fix it.
Realistically Windows 8/8.1 handles temporary user profile issue better than Windows 7. You will not face this issue most of the time if you have a freshly installed Windows 8 or 8.1 computer. But you may face this sometimes if you have a Windows 8 which was upgraded from Windows 7.
This problem usually occurs when user profile settings got corrupted by some software or virus or unexpected shutdown of computer and even by delay in reading settings files while booting.

In order to prevent Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 from loading using a temporary file, step-by-step instructions given below must be followed:
  1. Restart the Windows 8 computer.

  2. Enter into the BIOS setup and configure the system to boot from CD/DVD Drive.

  3. Save the modified settings in BIOS and reboot the computer.

  4. Insert Microsoft Windows 8 bootable installation DVD into the optical media drive (CD/DVD Drive).

  5. When prompted to Press any key to boot from CD or DVD, press any key to boot the computer from DVD support.

  6. On the displayed Windows Setup box, click Next.

  7. On the next page, click Repair your computer.

  8. On Choose an option screen, click Troubleshoot.

  9. On Troubleshoot screen, click Advanced options.

  10. On Advanced options screen, click Command Prompt.

  11. On the opened command prompt window, type C: and press Enter.

  12. On C: prompt, type NET USER ADMINISTRATOR /ACTIVE: YES command, and press Enter to enable the built-in administrator account.

  13. Once the command executed successfully, type EXIT command to close the command prompt window.

  14. Back on the Choose an option screen, click Continue to restart Windows 8 computer.

  15. Eject Windows 8 installation DVD from the optical media drive when done.

  16. Log on to Windows 8 computer with the administrator account.

  17. Click Desktop tile from the Start screen to go to the desktop.

  18. Once on the desktop screen, click File Explorer icon from the taskbar.

  19. On the opened Libraries window, right click Computer from the left pane.

  20. From displayed context menu, click Manage.

  21. On the opened Computer Management snap-in, go to Local Users and Groups category and create a new user account.

  22. Close Computer Management snap-in when done.

  23. Logoff from the Window 8 computer.

  24. Log on with the newly created user account to activate the user profile of the logged on user.

  25. Logoff the current user account.

  26. Again, log on with the administrator account.

  27. Click Desktop tile from the Start screen.

  28. On the desktop screen, click File Explorer icon from the taskbar.

  29. On Libraries window, navigate to locate C:\Users\<Old_Username> folder.
    Where old username is the name of user profile from which files are to be copied.

  30. Once located, go to View menu at the top right corner.

  31. From displayed options in the ribbon, click Options.

  32. On the opened Folder Options box, go to View tab.

  33. On the selected tab, click to select Show hidden files, folders, and drives radio button to
    view hidden files and folders of user profile.

  34. On the same tab, uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) checkbox.

  35. Click OK to save the changes.

  36. Once done, copy all the contents of the folder except NTUSER.DAT, NTUSER.DAT.LOG, and NTUSER.INI files.

  37. Once copied, paste the contents to C:\Users\<New_Username> folder. Where new username is the user account name that was created earlier.

  38. Close all the opened windows when done.

  39. Restart the computer and logon with the newly created user account.

* Also, you can try system restore or re-installation (repair) of whole Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 Operating System if above steps not work for you.
(System restore is always the best solution to such problems and every time it gives 100% success)

best app to create backup from android mobile

I have tried many backup apps(Super Backup is also a good app for backup) but I find Titanium Backup as best app.
To use this application , you should have a rooted smartphone. 
If you haven't rooted your smartphone yet, 
you can root your android phone by following few simple steps here
Download Titanium Backup application from play store
If you want the paid version , this will activate the paid version for the application.
Download Titanium Backup Pro here
Titanium Backup is the ultimate app of choice for every avid Android user with a rooted device. This app is your answer to the most frequently asked question coming from Android users who just rooted their device – “How do I backup my apps when moving to a custom ROM?”. Titanium Backup will not only backup your apps, but their data as well. This means, that by backing up a game, you can back up your progress in the game as well. If you’re really into music, Shazam, for example, can be backed up with all the tags intact. Of course, Titanium Backup does allow you to restore, otherwise, what’s the point? But that’s not all the app has to offer. Titanium Backup actually boasts a variety of feature rich options that most of us do not even bother looking into. For a complete look into one of the best Backup & Restore tools ever made for Android, read on!

Titanium Backup can seem intimidating to the first timers, but the app is actually quite simple to use once you know your way around it, and that’s exactly what we’re here to do. The app is available as an unpaid version and a paid one, that is Titanium Backup Pro, with the latter offering some advanced features that will be discussed later on.
Good, so you have Titanium Backup installed, now how do you backup your apps? Simple, hit the Backup / Restore tab as seen in the screenshot above and you should see a screen somewhat similar to the one below. The apps with their icons visible are the one’s that are already installed on your system, and the ones that are crossed out, are those that have been backed up, but not yet installed.

 But what’s with the creepy smilies, the excalmatory marks and all? Tap the Menu button on your device and hit the Legend tab. You will be shown a screen similar to the one below, listing all the symbols and what they actually mean.

Right , so you’re in the Backup/Restore menu. To backup any particular app, simply tap it and a sub menu like the one below, will pop up. No need to go all Dee Dee on Dexter here, stick to what you were here for. Hit the Backup button and leave. Please note that you can only have a single backup for every app in the unpaid version of Titanium Backup. Now that you know how to backup an app, here’s how to restore an already backed up app. Simply tap on an app (yes the crossed out ones) and when the sub menu appears, hit the Restore button to restore that app. You will be asked whether to restore the app alone, or the app with its data. Take a pick. In some cases, restoring an app with data may cause the app to become corrupt or force close, especially when you have moved from one ROM to an entirely different ROM. In such cases, try restoring the app alone, without the data.
It is advised that if and when you do make a backup of system apps and settings, do not restore them on a totally different ROM. For example, do not restore system apps backed up in MIUI on a HTC Sense based ROM unless you want a mess on your hands. In all likelihood, the ROM will act up.
Now that you’ve familiarized yourself with the Backup and Restore option, it should be safe to tell you that Wipe Data removes all the relevant data associated with that app and Un-install does exactly what it says. If you want to remove a particular backup of any app, hit the delete button. This will remove any backup of the app along with its data from your device. Freeze (Only available with Titanium Backup Pro) is a very useful option that lets you freeze up any app that you don’t want deleted, but don’t exactly want it to be running either. This option is handy for use with system apps mostly, that run unannounced and in cases where a certain app drains a lot of battery. If you’re not sure you want to delete them, you can at least stop them from running constantly in the background.
The above Backup and Restore options are all good for a few apps, what about when you have, say, a hundred of them or even more? It would be cruel if we had to go through the tap to backup process for each app one by one. Luckily, for sanity’s sake, the developers included a Batch Backup / Restore feature. Batch operations are split into 9 categories including Backup, Restore, Backup Verification, Move / Integrate, Freeze / Defrost (Pro version only), Manipulate Data, Un-install and Delete Backups.

Something different to app backup and restore is the Move / Integrate feature, which allows you to move all your apps to the SD card in batch. Coming back to batch backup and restore, here’s how you can backup all of your apps with just one tap. Hit Menu -> Batch to bring up the batch operations menu, then select RUN with the backup type of your choice. In our case, we chose Backup all user apps and were taken to a screen as shown below (on the left). You will be asked if you want to exclude backing up the apps that are active or kill them to back them up. Select the apps that you want, or just hit Select all, and once the choice is made, hit the Run the batch operation button on the top.

As for batch restore, here’s what will make you want to purchase the Pro version. Hit the Restore type of your choice, in our case we chose Restore missing apps with data. Select the apps and choose whether you want to restore the data as well. Hit the Run the batch operation button and voila! The restoration has started. “Uh oh, it took me to the app installation screen! Is that normal?”. Unfortunately, yes it is. The free version of Titanium Backup is not so hot on restoring your apps for you. You will have to install and then hit the done tab for every app being restored in succession. Frankly, it is a pain! The Pro version lets you restore your apps in a batch as any normal batch operation should, be it 10 apps, 300 or even more.

So we’re done with the backup and restore operations but Titanium Backup has not yet run out of tricks. Did you know that you could send a list of all the apps currently installed on your PC via Bluetooth or email? Hit the Menu button on your device and tap More to bring up a list of options. Select Send Data and the screenshots pretty much say the rest.

You can also schedule when to backup your apps and system data. Even better, you can set multiple schedules. Hit the Schedules tab on the main screen and now you can add new schedules, or simply edit or remove existing ones. This can be pretty handy for times when you haven’t exactly backed up your recent apps and some custom ROM decides to go all Kung Fu on you or if you’re just forgetful. With Schedules, you can rest assure that your apps will remain safe in times like these.

There are also a couple of other nifty options if you go into the Preferences menu of Titanium Backup. If you have the Pro version, you could enable the use of Dropbox with Titanium Backup and have a cloud based backup of all your apps. Those paranoid about the safety of their backups can have an encrypted backup, but this feature, again, is for the Pro version only. By default, Titanium Backup saves all your backups in a folder named TitaniumBackup on the root of your SD card. You can change that by going into Backup folder location. If you have ever been through the backed up contents in the TitaniumBackup folder, you would have noticed how the files aren’t exactly the APK’s one would assume they would be. Instead the contents are compressed, but you can change that. Even more, you can change the compression level or choose not to compress the backup at all.
If you have the Pro version, your maximum history of a backup for each app is increased to 5! You can change the default maximum history from 1 to 5 from the Preferences menu.

One more handy feature is the Filter. Adding a filter makes finding an app from a list of hundreds very easy. Simply hit the Menu button on your device and tap the Filters button (or simply hit the Search button on your device). That said, try keeping a listed app pressed, and menu similar to the one below on the right will pop up. If the app is already backed up, you can send the backup via email or Bluetooth (Pro version only) The link for pro version is given on the top of this post. Moreover, you can convert the app to a system app or choose to enable multiple profiles for the app (again, Pro version only) and much more.

Lastly, if you want, you can create an installable zip file of Titanium Backup to be installed via a custom Recovery. Go to More and hit Create “”… to be taken to a screen similar to he one shown below. Choose the Script type wisely, use the newer Edify script if you’re on ClockworkMod recovery 3+ or the older Amend script for ClockworkMod recovery 2. You can choose whether to install Titanium Backup as a system or user application. Select the name type and hit the Create“”… button to create the file.

I tried to explain everything clearly still if anyone of you face any problem you are most welcome to inform me about that I will try to solve it and reply you ASAP .

Note: Samsung Galaxy Trend users can also use this app :)

how to increase battery life of android mobile

1. See what's sucking the most juice. Navigate to Settings -> Battery to see an organized breakdown of what's consuming your phone's battery. Applications and features will display in a descending list of battery hogs. If you see an application you barely use or a feature you never use, you'll want to uninstall the app or turn off the feature.

2. Reduce email, Twitter, and Facebook polling. Set your various messaging apps to "manual" for the polling or refresh frequency, just as a test, and you'll instantly extend your device's battery life by a significant amount. Once you see what a difference that makes, try re-enabling just the most important ones, and possibly reducing their polling frequency in the process.

3. Turn unnecessary features off. It's great that today's phones have LTE, NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, but do you really need all five activated 24 hours per day? Android keeps location-based apps resident in the background, and the constant drain on your battery will become noticeable, fast. If your phone has a power control widget, you can use it to quickly turn on/off GPS (the largest power drain), NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and LTE. On stock Android, swipe down to bring up the Notification bar, and then tap the icon on the top right corner.

4. Use the extra power saving mode if you have it. Ultra Power Saving and Extreme Power Saving modes, respectively, that limits the phone to texting, phone calls, Web browsing, and Facebook. This can squeeze extra hours or even a day of standby time out of just a few remaining percentage points of battery.

5. Trim apps running in the background. From Settings -> Apps, swipe to the left, you'll see a list of apps that are currently running. Tap on each one to see what they're for, 
you can stop any apps that you don't need running in the background all of the time.

6. Dump unnecessary home screen widgets and live wallpaper. Just because they're sitting on the home screen, seemingly inactive, doesn't mean they're not consuming power. This goes for widgets that poll status updates in the background, as well as ones that just sit there but look pretty and animated—not to mention animated live wallpaper. (But don't dump everything, as part of what makes Android great are the home screen customizations, just remove the ones you don't use.)

7. Turn down the brightness and turn off Automatic Brightness. It's probably obvious at this point, but you'll be surprised by how much this one alone helps to improve battery life.

8. Update your apps. Applications often get updated to use less battery power, so you should make sure your apps are up to date. Even if you configured the phone for automatic updates, some apps still require that you manually install updates. Check for app updates in Google Play by hitting the menu key and going to My Apps.

9. Keep an eye on signal strength. If you're in an area with poor cellular coverage, the phone will work harder to latch onto a strong-enough signal. This has an adverse effect on battery life. There's not much you can do about this one, but keep in mind that this could be the culprit behind a seemingly weak battery; it's worth popping the phone into Airplane mode if you don't need data or voice calls.

10. Check the reviews. We conduct battery life tests on every single Android phone we review. Unsurprisingly, the results vary widely between handsets, even on the same network. When choosing a phone, make sure that real world talk time is sufficient. You can't go by what the manufacturer says; we see variances on the order of several hours of usage in both directions on a regular basis.

whatsapp working slow or delay in incoming messages









Make sure to have a strong internet signal on your phone

Make sure your phone has an internet connection. You can check this by opening a browser and going to a website. If you're having connection problems, try these connection steps.
If web pages work, but WhatsApp doesn't, you will need to contact your mobile provider and system administrator and make sure that your APN and router are configured correctly to allow non-web and socket connections.


 You may just need to change the notification settings in WhatsApp

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Push the Menu Button.
  3. Tap Settings > Notifications.
In this menu, you have options for Message Notifications and Group Notifications. Adjust the settings to your liking.


If messages are still taking too long to reach your phone

It may be that you are not receiving your message pushes from Google's push notification service.
We recommend that you:
  • Reboot the phone (Turn it OFF then ON).
  • Delete and reinstall WhatsApp.
  • Make sure that Background data is allowed under Settings > Data Usage > Menu Button.
  • Launch the Hangouts app, press the Menu Button, and sign out of all of your accounts (tap the account, scroll down and select Sign out). Then re-launch Hangouts and sign back in to your account(s).
  • Turn off Wi-Fi.
  • If you are often connected to Wi-Fi, check your Wi-Fi sleep policy (Settings > Wi-Fi > Menu Button > Advanced > Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep) and make sure it is set to Always.
  • For Android OS 4.4 and above, make sure that Wi-Fi optimization is unchecked (Settings > Wi-Fi > Menu Button > Advanced > Wi-Fi optimization).
  • For HTC devices, try turning off fast boot in Device Settings > Power > Fast Boot (make sure it is unchecked). You may also try turning off Power Saver, Extreme Power Saving Mode and Sleep Mode. Make sure to reboot your device after changing the settings to ensure the changes are applied.
  • Make sure to uninstall any task killers, these will keep the app from receiving messages when you are not in the app.
  • If you have no idea what a task killer is, then you probably don’t have one.
I guess your problem should be solved by above steps and if its still not solved then let me know and don't forget to comment if it works for you.

how to make android phone run fast

Android was developed for many devices that do not share a standard hardware specification. It’s like the Windows of smartphones.
There are some Android phones that run on few hundred megahertz with a handful of internal memory while there are beasts like HTC One X that run on a multi-core processor with 1 GB of RAM. Due to these reasons, performance of Android phones differ and thus some appear slow when compared to others.
Even though the performance issue is mainly related to the device hardware configuration, there are few things you can do on the software front which can reduce the pressure on the device hardware making it considerably faster. So let’s have a look at these tips.

Note: The following tips are for non-rooted Android phones. If you don’t understand what “non-rooted” means, this post is for you. This post is also for those who don’t want to root their phones just to make it run faster, and are looking for easier workarounds. If you have a rooted phone, then still it is very useful.

1. Disable Screen Animation and Live Wallpaper

You need to be sure what you want with your device – performance or appearance. Both never walk hand in hand, not if your phone isn’t high end i.e. a highly configured device. If you are looking for a superior performance, you should disable all the Live wallpapers (if at all you are using them) and the screen animation that gives fading effect to your menus and unlock animation.

Android Live Wallpaper

Selecting common image wallpapers over a live wallpaper is easy. To disable the screen animation, IceCreamSandwich users should navigate to Developer options in the settings while other users should disable it from Display—>Animations.

Android Disable Animation


2. Install Apps on Need to Use Basis

Even though Android Play Store is a home to millions of free applications, it is recommended that you only download and install the apps that you need. Apps on Android are installed in a special memory called the ROM, which is usually limited in storage space.
Thus if you populate it with unnecessary apps, it will only reduce the consistency of the memory and make it slow. One of the best practices you can follow is that you should install only basic apps on your ROM and create backup files of once-in-a-while apps as APK on the SD card using an app for backup of these APK files.
Later, when you require a particular app out of the blue, you can install the app using the APK file and perform the operation.

3. Switch-on different features and disable them after use

Enabling too many features make a device comparatively slow and drain its juice. You should enable only those features which are required at a time and don't make several features running unnecessarily.

Switch on these features only when you require them and when the work’s done, disable them. This trick will not only make your device faster but also help your battery to last longer.


 4. Use Apps to Free Up the RAM

Once you launch an app on Android it remains in the memory until it’s killed(means closed). Although some people say that killing(means closing) applications on Android is not a healthy habit, I believe that killing only the ones that are bloating up the memory is a good thing to do.

There are many app available that acts as a task killer for your Android and increases the device’s free memory. And I don’t need to tell you the fact that performance is directly proportional to the amount of free RAM on a device.


5. Keep your Home Screen Clean

Last but not the least, always try to keep your home screen clean. Widgets are not a fancy item. They are there to solve a specific purpose. Thus use only what you require and reduce the number of home screen panels that contain icons and widgets.



I consider myself an experienced and geeky Android user, and the above tips were the best that struck me among all such methods.I guess these above mentioned methods will surely boost up your device. But if you think that I have missed an important point, please talk about them in your comments.
