Got bored with the default android switcher!!!
             A new switcher is on its way to change it, it is called the "Switchr". It is a application for all the android devices which will help to change the trend of switching between multiple applications on your android device.

            This application has been created by a XDA senior member, Mohammad Adib. This application is inspired by the Paranoid Android's Halo. Users can use this application to switch between running applications and even close them by swiping over it. If your device is rooted, you can also integrate the app with Halo, enabling even more possibilities.

                                                                         Arc style

                                                                         Flow Style

                                                                          Slide Style

            The best part of this application is that it is free and has three styles of switching. So it is a must to install application on your android phone or tablet as it is compatible for all android devices. This application can be easily downloaded from the Google Play store.

Floods in Uttarakhand, India: Google Person Finder launched to offer information on missing people in flood affected areas

Since last week, the state of Uttarakhand in India has been grappling with severe floods. Given that most of these areas are highly inaccessible and have intermittent communication, we in the Google Crisis Response team are opening up  Person Finder — a tool that can help trace the missing people in flood impacted regions of Uttarakhand.This version is available in both Hindi and English.

Google Person Finder is a web application that allows individuals to post and search for the status of relatives or friends affected by a disaster. All data entered into Google Person Finder is available to the public and searchable and accessible by anyone. The program also lets press agencies, non-governmental agencies and others contribute to the database and receive updates by using the Person Finder API based on the PFIF open standard.

The National Disaster Management Authority has listed the following helpline numbers for control rooms across rain affected areas in the state of Uttarakhand (please use India country code +91 as appropriate):

Uttarkashi: (+91) 1374-226461, 
Chamoli: (+91) 1372-251437, 9411352136, 
Rudraprayag: (+91) 1364-233727,9412914875,
Tehri: (+91) 1376-233433, 9411548090
Kedarnath: (+91) 1364-233727
Control Room (Uttarakhand): (+91) 135-2710334, 9557444486,

We hope Person Finder helps people get the latest information about their near and dear ones in these flood affected areas. For more information about how it works, click here.

Google Will Battle Child Porn Contents On Web Setting Up $2 Million Fund

Image Credit: The Verge

Internet search engine giant Google is recently involved in a new project that will wipe out all the child porn from the web. According to the telegraph, UK google along with other companies and law enforcement agencies is trying to build a database consisting of images of child porn which will be soon removed from the web.

Earlier it happened in haphazard way finding each image abusive and blocking it but it didn't solve the problem as a whole. So now they are planning to form different groups and share databases so anyone can contribute content related to child porn.

UK Prime minister David Cameron has earlier asked technology giant company google to find a way to block these absurd images. Google is reportedly setting up a $2 million fund to help independent software developers create new tech to identify and hide child porn across the web.

But there are a second group of people too who want to explore their devices to the fullest by flashing custom ROM or flashing any new update or adding a modded feature of some other phone to enhance the properties of their phone. At the time of flashing or rooting you require a USB cable and a laptop, but many a times you will not find the USB cable in place or it would be not in a good condition due to frequent use. Despite of this if a person uses this faulty USB cable for flashing then its mere risk.

To minimize this risk developers have come up with a application which will allow users to flash there phones wirelessly. The application is called as 'RemoteFlash'. It allows you to flash ROMS, Mods, and Updates directly from your computer, over WiFi.  APK's can also be installed on your device  wirelessly using this application.

This application consists of two files. The first  one being a standalone Java application that will  run on your computer and  the other file is the RemoteFlash apk which will be installed in your android device. The PC and the android device should be connected to each other via same WiFi network.


  • Install the java application on your PC and the APK on your android device.
  • Run the RemoteFlash apk.
  • Reboot the device.

What Is iOS 7? Features, Description & Availability

After Tim Cook took the stage for the introduction to the new iOS 7 he described it as "the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of iPhone" followed by playing a video.

We have waited long for it to know what was it, whether it was black and white or it was flat but afterall it was going to be a totally different experience. It was a massive six year old change to a popular mobile operating system that was disclosed today at WWDC '13 event at San Francisco. 

Not wasting much of the time, i will rather quickly sum up the changes that took place to this operating system. :)

Notification Centre:

Notification centre which debuted up with iOS 5 was a major change that came up with that time but now with iOS 7 it has evolved itself more better,for now users can see all important notifications without actually unlocking. Now it's no more a home screen feature only.

It's no more laced with dark green linen background anymore and now appears to be a very flat look where one could see friends birthdays, upcoming invitations, calendar, stocks, and a quick look at tomorrow.

Control Centre:

Apple guys are investing too much time in studying the tweaks that was around for awhile  Notably, the gesture feature was introduced earlier from a jailbreaking tweak which was around for a decade called "Zephyr".  One of the major reason why people jailbreak is to get more from this device which Apple does not permit. SBSettings was something similar to this control centre which helped people to toggle on and off certain stuffs like Wifi, bluetooth etc.

So basically this brand new Control centre is a pull up tray that is available in the lock screen where you can adjust brightness, volume, Wifi, Airplane mode, rotation lock, or Bluetooth.

Also offers flashlight toggle button along with music, camera and quick access apps. One of the cool feature that it's integrated with is, it absorbs the environment you are working on. So if you are on the email and you swipe up for the control centre it will take the same blue and white coloring under that translucent panel.


The new multitasking feature comes in with better performance and promising a better battery life. It will be same like the previous generations like to double tap the home button but the design is much changed with this OS. 

In shorter way it provides better multi tasking environment with much better battery health.


Airdrop existed in Mac earlier for exchanging files smoothly and now its coming to the iOS 7.


The new Safari will now open a straight into full screen mode now, with the option to pull down to bring up the search bar at the top. The tabs are in a totally new interface. Switching between multiple window will be totally amazing.

Also, the new Safari is integrated with iCloud keychain from OS X Mavericks, and also comes with parental controls.


Siri has got a new voice and with this update you will get an option to choose between male or female voice and you can chose with different languages. The earlier UI has also been replaced with the new one in which the sound wave will travel and displayed. It has also been integrated with feature such as setting in which you can tell her to turn on bluetooth, or lower the screen brightness. Also added support for Twitter, Wikipedia, and shows web search results directly from Bing.

iOS In The Car:

With this feature users will be able to free themselves from the phone with cars supporting this technology. It puts the iOS home screen on the screen of your car, and lets you search for directions, listen to music, etc. 

It makes the experience easy while driving and for the driver to respond to any alert on their phone.

App Store:

Now apps with automatically update in the background. You can now search for apps based on location.

iTunes Radio:

Apple has finally introduced iTunes Radio. You can see the full list of songs on each station by clicking history, with purchase and preview buttons built right in to send you to the iTunes store. iTunes Match users will get an ad-free experience, but others will be able to use the app for free with a few audio and text ads.

Activation Lock:

This is interesting security feature inbuilt in the iOS 7. If your phone is stolen and the thief tries to turn off "Find My iPhone" then he may not be able to turn the device back on without the iCloud password. Also users can now block unwanted calls and messages.

Camera and Photos:

The camera will come with inbuilt filter option and no third party apps like instagram will be now necessary.


iOS 7 will be compatible with the following devices: iPhone 5, 4S, 4; iPad 2, 3, 4 iPad mini and the latest fifth-gen iPod touch.


iOS 7 will drop this Fall, and the first beta will be available to developers as of today.
