Galaxy Note 9

Transferring your photos and other personal data from your old phone to your new Samsung phone (congrats on the upgrade!) is extremely easy. You might not even need a USB cable.

Upgrading is AWESOME. More storage, new features, a killer new camera—the only downside is transferring all of your old data. Lucky for you, sending all of your old photos to your new Samsung phone is way easier than it is with any other type of phone.

Here are the 3 ways you can save all of those photos of your family pets:

#1) SHAREit Mobile App – Share Files Wirelessly

 

The SHAREit mobile app is available for Android from the Google Play Store. The app is free and allows you to transfer photos and other multi-media seamlessly.

All you have to do is:

  1. Install SHAREit on BOTH phones
  2. Tap SEND from your old phone and RECEIVE from your new one
  3. Select your photos and anything else you’d like to send on your old phone
  4. The transfer will happen AUTOMATICALLY to your new phone
  5. Enjoy showing off all your awesome travel photos to your friends

The downside to the SHAREit app is it’s a bit slow and supported by ads. In our opinion, that significantly downgrades the experiences and could even open you up to viruses. The good news is, there’s a better wireless option (check out #3 if you want to go wireless).

 

#2) Samsung Data Transfer – for Windows or Mac Users

Samsung’s data transfer program is an old-school, phone-to-phone method that only requires a few USB cables (and a computer). It’s good for heavy transfers, as it lets you send eBooks to your new phone too.

If you want to migrate photos to your new phone, follow these steps:

  1. Download the Samsung Data Transfer program (Windows or Mac)
  2. Connect both your phones to your computer (the program should now recognize both devices)
  3. Check to make sure there is a “CONNECTED” sign beneath the phones
  4. Make sure your old phone is on the “SOURCE” side and your new one on the “DESTINATION” side
  5. Select what you want to transfer, and you are good to go!

It’s that easy!

 

#3) The Smart Switch Mobile App – The BEST WAY to Send Old Photos to Your New Samsung Phone

 

Samsung’s Smart Switch mobile app is a godsend that makes sending old photos to a new Samsung phone as easy as a few taps of the screen. It’s totally free, the UX is awesome, and it’s really FAST. Also, it lets you send ANY multi-media file, so if you want to send your old videos as well, you can. By the way, merging videos is a great way to save space and create awesome presentations. Check out Free Make Converter tool that lets you merge videos w/t limits FOR FREE.

If you’re upgrading to the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (by the way, you should!), you won’t have to worry about losing everything.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Install Samsung Smart Switch on BOTH devices
  2. Put the devices next to each other
  3. Tap connect on one of the devices
  4. Choose which data you want to migrate to the other device
  5. Accept the transfer on your new phone

That’s all there is to it—no cables, no confusing programs, no nothing. Your new phone’s library will be full of your old selfies in minutes.

These are the 3 best ways to send old photos (and more) to your new phone. We definitely recommend the Samsung Smart Switch mobile app for all transfers.

Dom Hofmann, the co-creator of Vine just posted a tweet about Vine’s successor, Byte. He says that the app will launch in Spring 2019.

Hofmann says that he was a part of the project since around 6 months now and the project was earlier nicknamed as v2. However, he postponed v2 citing funding and logistic issues.  But it seems like he’s now squared away some type of funding to get v2 off the ground as Byte.

Keep following us to know more about Byte.

We all do want a proper app to download high-quality videos from different sources. However, many other first-party apps only allow you to download content, but can only be readable by that particular app. Thanks to Snaptube App, we now have an app that can allow us to download high-quality videos from providers like YouTube, Vevo, Vimeo etc.

It is a lightweight app, that allows you to freely download video content from several providers like YouTube. After all who doesn’t want to download those videos in high-quality, and see them later. That too using their own favorite video player?

Snaptube has multiple sources for you to download videos from. If you think that this kind of app is heavy, let me tell you, the app weighs just 11MB. Yes, lightweight and greater performance.

Also, for your eye protection, the app comes with inbuilt Dark Mode. It also comes with the PiP mode as well.

Snaptube app Features:

  1. Allows you to download MP3s for free
  2. You can download the videos in HD as well as 4K and 8K since Snaptube supports them too.

  4. Completely Free
  5. Safe to use.
  6. Get hands-on every new video that goes online every day.

Apple Wallet will start supporting University Student ID Cards https://www.onetechstop.net/2018/10/02/apple-wallet-will-start-supporting-university-student-id-cards/ https://www.onetechstop.net/2018/10/02/apple-wallet-will-start-supporting-university-student-id-cards/#respond Tue, 02 Oct 2018 15:23:01 +0000 https://www.onetechstop.net/?p=33105

Students at Duke University, the University of Alabama and the University of Oklahoma, students can now add their ID card to Apple Wallet and use it to pay for services at school, or unlock a dorm room door.

Apple announced that it’s launching a pilot program with three universities to support student ID cards in Apple Wallet. Students can add their ID cards to Apple Wallet, allowing them to do things like access dorms or pay for cafeteria meals holding their iPhones or Apple Watches above card readers.

The new feature enables students to add student ID cards to the iPhone’s Wallet app that then can be evoked for anything the card would normally be used to do: gaining access to dorms, gyms, or school libraries, as well as making payments for books, food, and laundry services. Anywhere a card would normally be accepted, the digital version works as well.

“iPhone and Apple Watch have brought us into a new era of mobility, helping to transform everyday experiences,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. “When we launched Apple Pay, we embarked on a goal to replace the physical wallet. By adding transit, loyalty cards and contactless ticketing we have expanded the capabilities of Wallet beyond payments, and we’re now thrilled to be working with campuses on adding contactless student ID cards to bring customers even more easy, convenient and secure experiences.”

For people who have the habit to lost the student ID card, the feature also seems genuinely convenient, and potentially more secure than tying campus access and money to a small piece of plastic. Just be sure to keep a spare battery in your backpack.

Musical.ly users got surprised today as they found the app replaced with a new name and logo. The app, rebranded as “TikTok” is the result of rhe acquisition of Musical.ly Chinese company ByteDance in November 2017.

Existing Musical.ly users have been migrated to their new TikTok accounts, which has a new interface. But the new app includes the existing core feature : Short videos upto 15 seconds.

Musical.ly, which is very popular across teens in China, India and other Asian countries has over 100 Million active users. The acquisition is a part of ByteDance’s strategy to break into the US market.

In the first quarter of 2018, TikTok was the world’s most downloaded iOS app, according to a report from US research firm Sensor Tower.

TikTok will remain a standalone app in China, where it operates as Douyin and boasts over 300 million monthly active users. You might’ve seen Douyin clips floating all across internet in the famous “Karma’s a bitch” meme which went viral this year. (YouTube video added. *wink*)

There is a mixed reaction between Musical.ly users. Some Musical.ly users are welcoming the changes, while others are debating how to identify themselves going forward:
“musically is now “tik tok” but i will always be a muser. not a clock.”
— Brian (@brianbertoline) August 2, 2018

This bold move by ByteDance can actually alienate the original Musical ly community, even though TikTok has 15 seconds video feature.

Let’s see how the teens help translate TikTok’s popularity in the US.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Google Clock receives an interesting update:- Clock app is the essential app to start your day with.

Well, forget about me. Let’s Move to Google Clock. This clock app is a lightweight app by Google. The app was updated today and brings a very nice feature – Spotify Integration. This happened due to a recent partnership between Google and Spotify.
