Best 5 Live wallpapers in Playstore : Part One

What it makes android different from other operating system is the customization part. You can change the look , the behavior, sounds and what not ? Google Playstore got a separate section just for the personalization apps . You can choose from the thousands of themes, icon packs, wallpapers and launchers .  You will easily get lost in that wilderness. Don’t get baffled by the ratings . I have tested many of the top applications in that genre and must tell you , most of those highly rated apps doesn’t fare better than the free apps available .

Given the size of the playstore , the task of testing each and every app is not going to be feasible for us. So i randomly test apps , mostly from the small developers . I will list out the apps that i found worth mentioning over here . Today , the app that caught my eye is Live Jellyfish LWP

This was a surprise app for me. Found this one on my friends mobile . I instantly fell in love with it. This is a very simple live wallpaper . Smooth and clean animation. It is a very light app and doesn’t consume ram and lags . Since the wallpaper is a dark one , it also doesn’t consumes the battery too much. So easily a 5 star from me

You won’t regret paying for this live wallpaper.

How to watch MOD channels on Dish TV without subscribing

So are you a dishtv user ? Go to channel number 250 , 251 and 254 . If you are a non subscriber , most probably you will be seeing a transparent conditional access message window displayed over the picture as shown below.

 Yes, you can watch the movie , or atleast hear , till the window becomes solid in colour.To continue watching , you have to pay for the movie .  But there is a trick to watch the movie without paying .

In your dishtv remote , press ‘ok’ button to evoke the program menu .

Now press the green button in the remote quickly  for ‘Options’ . That is it . Now you can watch the movie , albeit the options menu bar. Do not press OK or Exit . You can press OK to choose the audio language ( if available) , but don’t press Exit .

Please use this trick only for a preview . Please pay to watch watch the movie . Afterall , they are just asking a price of Rs. 30-50 per movie. In addition , you can even pay using your points .

This post was a subject of a huge debate among us . One of them says it is an act of piracy and hence a crime. While the other one says it is not . My stand was neither . I don’t support people watching paid channels for free through some kind of hacks . But this is not a hack. This is a glitch on the side of the dishtv . We are happy if someone reports this loophole to dishtv and are ready to take this post down , if asked .

How to create your own android app without any coding for free

There are tons of resources available for you to learn android , and almost all are absolutely free . Being open source , Android SDK and toolkit can be downloaded from the official Android Developer website . Android website itself have great articles to start your learning .But learning a language is not an easy task. It takes weeks of training before you could even try to develop your own app. But i will tell you an alternative. This option is for those guys , who wants to develop their own android application without even writing a single line of code . All you need is the imagination .

So how you are going to do it ? Actually there are many websites that offers the users to develop their own android applications , but most of them on a subscription plan . Subscription fees depends upon the pack you are going to choose and will cost you anywhere not less than $33 . If you can’t shell out money , don’t be disappointed . There are a couple of web services that offers this for free of cost. I tried out two of them Appypie and Andromo , both are free , but subscription packs are also available . But i would recommend you to start with the free service before moving out to a paid service. As i said , i tried out Appypie and Andromo but ultimately i ended up with Andromo . I felt Andromo will be more friendly for a novice user . But Andromo requires you to sign up before starting , whereas Appypie will let you develop your app but need to complete the registration procedure before actually building it . Here i will be using Andromo .

STEP 1

Go to http://www.andromo.com

STEP 2

This is the main page of your app. Click Add an Activity button to evoke a drop down menu , where in you can choose the type of activity . Choose the activity of your choose to evoke the sub menu where you can add further details. You can choose as many activities as you can , but requires a minimum of one . Please be careful about choosing the activity , as this will be the content of your app. Once finished don’t forget to click save and continue .

Here you can choose the style of your app . Colours , Themes etc .

Now click the Build My App button to start the building procedure. All the compiling and building will be done by the Andromo servers and this will take some time. Once the building is completed , they will send you a notification into your registered email upon which you can download your app by clicking on the Actions button . If you are not satisfied with the app , you can go back and edit each and every step. That is it . Now you have made your own Android App. If you want , you can publish it into Google Play store. We will update you on this later. For now i am winding up this post. Hope this was helpful for you.
