Trick To Update Android Apps Without Google Play

Published by:

Hello android geeks, today I found unique method to update all android apps without using Google play ! You may have heard this line Need is mother of all inventions. well I’m not so intelligent to invent new stuffs but just found simple trick which I’m gonna share with you in this tutorial.

In earlier days, I used to upgrade all my apps using android market itself which was simple and quite easy task. But all of you know that internet / broadband plans are becoming too costly now a days to afford. So most of us prefer to choose limited data plans. If you update apps via google play, it consumes lots of internet data in background which reduces overall download speed consuming your valuable time. Even though there are plenty of third party app stores such as Mobogenie, 1 Mobile, Blackmart ( Get Paid Android Apps Free ) they are not handy to upgrade your old app versions & sometimes they don’t have record of new app updates. So, here is solution to all your questions. Just follow the simple steps given below.

  • Step 1. Type the name of application in google search which you want to update.
  • Step 2. Look for google play store link & open it using stock browser / chrome ( do not open it using play store app ) .
  • Step 3. Copy the required app URL as visible in screenshot given below
  • Step 4. Open another tab and go to app evozi, & paste copied URL as shown below
  • Step 5. Click on Generate Download Link and your download will begin shortly. Now take a chair and relax. Install downloaded app & enjoy updated version. it’s as easy as that !

SMS Popup App Review

Published by:

SMS Popup has been around for a long time on Android. There are many programs which aim to enhance SMS on Android but SMS Popup is the original. The app is pretty simple – when you receive a new SMS, instead of just having an icon in the notification bar you also get a popup. Many complained that this should have been built in to the Android operating system from the very beginning but that’s the great thing about Android, if a feature is missing then there’s a good chance someone can make it.

Unlike other apps which have an SMS Popup such as Handcent SMS and ChompSMS, SMS Popup is just that – a popup and it doesn’t provide a different looking SMS client, it works along side your stock messaging app but remember to turn the notifications off on the default messaging app or you will get two icons every time you receive a message.

Even though the app is rather small it packs some impressive features. One of the best features is the ability to “quick reply” which means you can reply directly from the popup without ever having to open up the messaging app. SMS Popup also has a great privacy feature which allows you to not show certain information within the popup so anyone snooping on you can’t see anything until you choose to – I’m sure many people will have a use for this. In addition to these great features there’s an option to input some preset messages which can allow you to reply using a preset – great for speed.

SMS Popup has a wealth of different options and settings, these are great as it allows for great customization of the popup even down to the button placement. Notifications can be configured and customised for individual contacts which over-rides the default set notification. Notification settings include LED settings such as colour and blink rate, periodic reminders for unread messages, vibrate notification sound and the ability to change the notification icon – there’s currently 3 different icons available but more are planned.

SMS Popup is a great app and if you don’t want anything as fancy or bulky as Handcent or ChompSMS then it’s a great option. The only major flaw for me was that if you have more than one unread SMS it doesn’t allow you to scroll through them like Handcent and ChompSMS do, instead they are over the top of each other and to access the bottom message you need to go in to the messaging app or click the notification in the notification bar. For some people I’m sure this won’t be a huge problem but for me it was a bit of an annoyance.

Overall it’s a great an lighter alternative to Handcent SMS and ChompSMS and is definitely worth a try.

What to do if you dont want to but a new Android phone and just want to have it installed in your phone and having its all features get into your phone with paying a single cent for that and that is possible with the help of this single click emulator which is not a theme change etc, it is full package of all Google SDK files and fully customized to be used on Windows.

This emulator was developed by the Haseeb, a member at XDA-Developer and he has customized and packages all the SDK files to get them run on a single click to get the best for the users. When I used it I found wow! a new Android phone was there in front of me to use.

I’m telling the drawbacks of this emulator too here, when I used..I think that they can also be changed by some tricks but some features which were missing are:

  • 1st: The phone was working in an Airplane mode.
  • 2nd: I was unable to use browser as if there was no internet connection.
  • 3rd: I too felt the emulator working a little slow may be it can be due to too many processes running on my windows phone but that can be resolved with a good processor.

So what to do to get this running on your phone or PC. It is just a matter of a click. From the link given below download the package and it will be consisted of two files one with boot manager and other without it. You can you any of them and I even suggest all the geeks to have it more explored by further customization and post it here as a comment so that we can get the best of it.
