How (and when) to clear app cache or data on Android

Apps sometimes can misbehave. If it happens to you, here’s something to try.

Update May 2017: This post has been updated to be in line with newer versions of Android.

All four major U.S. carriers offer an unlimited data plan again. After years of hearing how they were unable to provide unlimited data to every customer and maintain the quality of service they wanted, new technology and a more competitive market means an 180-degree turnaround was in order and here we are.

For those exact times, Google has bundled a new feature into Chrome for Android that will allow you to download a webpage for offline viewing. Available via a long press […]

Back your phone data up and charge it at same time with a MEEM Cable

Charging a smartphone is something nearly all of us do on a nearly daily basis. Some of us can get a few days between power-up, but we all eventually have to juice up on a semi-regular basis. How often, though, are you backing up your files? Surely you don’t rely on only one copy of all […]
