  Opera updates Mini web browser app after long time
Posted by: nairrk - 06-03-2020, 06:37 PM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

[Image: opera-mini-india.jpg]

Remember Opera Mini? The mobile browser has got a new update after months. The changes are limited to the design of the mobile browser. You can update the version 50.0 of the app from Play Store. Even though Chrome for Google is the go-to mobile browser, millions have used Opera Mini and liked it.

The mobile web browser is now offering new set of features based on the design. The moment you in open the app, users will be able to pick theme and colour for their profile. These changes will reflect on the homepage of the browser. But you’ll notice the header part of the browser now gets a subtle shade of gradient. The company has also added new set of button above the search bar. Even categories like news get new colour and their placement has been changed.

These are the only noticeable changes in the Opera Mini browser. The last time we heard from Opera, it had launched offline file sharing feature.

This allowed users in India to transfer images, videos and audio files. With nearby devices at high speeds, without using their mobile data. It said users don’t need to download a dedicated file sharing app anymore. The native offline file sharing feature in Opera Mini can transfer files at speeds of up to 300MB/s, making it the fastest solution for file sharing.

To start sending or receiving files, a user needs to open File Sharing in the menu and choose Send or Receive. Opera Mini will display a QR code for the nearby device to scan, connecting the devices. Once a file is successfully transferred, the sender will be notified, and the receiver will be able to access the file in the Received tab shown in Opera Mini.

Posted by: nairrk - 06-02-2020, 03:17 PM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

[Image: jiphone_425_735.jpeg]

WhatsApp for JioPhone and other feature phones running on KaiOS will soon get WhatsApp Status feature. KaiOS has revealed that the brand is planning to bring the Status feature to its platform.

KaiOS Joe Grinstead, in an interview with Android Central, revealed that the Status feature on WhatsApp for JioPhone users is at ‘Gold Master’ stage. This means that the update is ready and it will be soon rolled out to the KaiOS users. He further added that voice calling for WhatsApp on KaiOS will be launched soon, though there is no timeline for it. He says that the voice calling has been ‘particularly challenging’ to implement on low-end smartphones and feature phones.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is testing QR code support with the latest beta version. The QR code feature is now available on WhatsApp Beta v2.20.171 and users can download it from TestFlight. The website has also shared some screenshots of what the feature may look like.

The WhatsApp QR Code feature will appear in the Profile section in the Settings menu. When you tap on the relevant icon, it will show a QR code. The code can be shared with your friends who can scan the same to get your number, in order for them to find you easily on WhatsApp.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is reportedly working to bring Messenger Rooms integration to its platform. The new feature is currently under development and it will be introduced to users in the near future.

  Remove China Apps crosses 1 million downloads on Google Play Store
Posted by: nairrk - 06-01-2020, 06:45 PM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

[Image: Remove-China-Apps.jpg]

Remove China Apps, an Android app that claims to recognize and remove Chinese applications from Android phones is becoming quite popular in India. The app currently tops Google Play Store’s list of top free apps. Launched on May 17, the app has downloaded more than 1 million users so far. A

This came in the limelight when anti-China sentiment reached its peak in the country. Since China is accused of spreading coronavirus on one side and tensions of the India-China border on the other. However, the creators of the Remove China apps claim that the app is “developed for educational purposes.”

Why is it gaining ground
As the name suggests, it identifies the apps that have been developed by Chinese companies. And users can also uninstall them directly via the Remove China apps if they wish. The app went live on the Google Play Store on May 17 and has been downloaded by over 1 million users. The app has largely received positive reviews on the Google Play Store with a 4.8 rating. Also Read - Meet Mitron App, the Indian rival to TikTok developed by IIT Roorkee student with over 5 million downloads

In particular, the Remove China app only detects applications installed in phones by the Google Play Store or other third-party app stores. Hence, the pre-installed apps delivered to phones by Chinese smartphone manufacturers are left unchecked. The Remove China apps, developed by OneTouch AppLabs, is listed only on the Google Play Store. OneTouch AppLabs claims the company is based in Jaipur, and their website was created on May 8.

At the time when anti-China sentiments are increasing in the country, the ‘Remove China apps’ is being widely downloaded. This sentiment has been sparked by many controversies such as YouTube vs TikTok, India-China border dispute, and the ongoing Covid-19 epidemic. Notably, a survey recently indicated that 67 percent of Indians blame China for the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak. Therefore, due to these controversies, many Indians are now exploring alternatives to Chinese products and phone apps.

  Night Vision is an app that allows your phone to see in complete darkness
Posted by: nairrk - 06-01-2020, 11:57 AM - Forum: Technology & Web Services - No Replies

Smartphone cameras have come a long way, and we’re not just talking about image quality. From a raging megapixel war to built-in multi-sensor modules that give users access to super-wide as well as acro shots, today’s cameras have it all. However, night photography and low light are one area where camera sensors are developing but still haven’t reached their peak. So an app that lets your phone use night vision, that is seen in pitch darkness, sounds unconvincing.

However, the trick is possible if your smartphone happens to have something called a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor. These small sensors are being equipped with more and more phones for various reasons. On some phones, this sensor is on the front and works by sensing faces in 3D to unlock devices. On others, this sensor is on the rear and assists the main camera module with some pretty creative use-cases.

However, today we’ll talk about how you can use your ToF-equipped phone to get night vision. Its pretty simple. All you need is this app called Night Vision / ToF Viewer. The app currently works with Huawei, Honor, and Samsung devices with the sensor.

Night Vision by developer Luboš Vonásek uses your phone’s ToF to quite literally “see in the dark”. The app’s interface essentially works like a camera that takes input from the sensor and gives you a low-resolution output. Not the clearest views, but it does let you see enough to identify what is what in dark environments and may be handy in emergency situations.

As per Max Weinbach from XDA, the app provides a better range on Huawei and Honor devices with the sensor and better quality on Samsung devices. The Night Vision / ToF Viewer app can be downloaded right from the Google Play Store. You will get outputs of resolution 240 x 180 on most supported devices. However, on some newer devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 + and the Galaxy S20+, the app can render surroundings in 320×240 resolution.
