Android Phone Tips

Business Technology | December 9, 2011

Android smartphones and Apple’s iPhones are very different. Android phones are highly customizable. You can change everything from your Android phone’s home screen to the way you download apps because Android is open source. The tips below will highlight how easy it is to tailor your smartphone to your specific needs.

One-Touch Dialing
Certainly there are people in your life that you call more then others. With Android phones, it is possible to setup one-touch dialing for these people. Just press an open space on your home screen, when the menu pops up select the “Shortcuts” option. Choose Direct Dial and find the right person from your list of contacts. After that you can select which button you want them set to. Easy as that!

Saving Time Searching the Web
If you have Web sites that you visit daily, it is possible to customize your home screen to incorporate shortcuts to these sites. To achieve this, press and hold onto the desired site in your browser’s bookmarks until a list of options pops up. Select the option “Add Shortcut to Home.” You will then see the selected Web page show up on your phone’s home page.

Organizing with Folders
Folders help you stay organized in your office, so why not on your Android phone? You can create folders for projects you are focusing on or essential documents in order to easily access them. Accomplishing this is easy! Simply press on a blank space on your phone’s screen and when the list of options pops up, choose “Folders.” Then name your newly created folder and drag and drop your documents into it.
