    Next Laucher 3D

    Next Launcher 3D I want to state this up front... I have encountered no problems with the S4 stock launcher; it is responsive and works well. I have been using the Next Launcher 3D on my Galaxy S4 for about 2 weeks. I decided to try the Next Launcher 3D as I have been a user for the "Go...

    Saving battery on your S4

    Another way to save battery life (at least in OG Droid and Droid 3) is to make sure that when you are finished with Facebook, you press the home button to end it and not the return key. Facebook makes extensive use of an active GPS. When you 'return', you leave facebook, but the GPS remains...

    Reboot aka power down/power up your S4 after the first time you pair each device. My experience with connecting/pairing BT devices with my S4 is that after you pair a device, for the first time, you need to reboot the S4. I have 3 BT devices, Logitec UME Boombox, Lg Note/700 BT earbuds, Ford...

    Dialing Sluggishness IMPORTANT: Make sure you have or know the log in/sign in information for your apps before doing a factory refresh. Actually the "Factory Refresh" was quite painless. I was already storing all my pics, docs, and music on the External SD Card or in one of my cloud...

    Rapid Battery Drain and Very Sluggish on Phone dialing

    The first things I did was delete all text messages and cleared cache. I removed Google Voice and Facebook. I pulled the battery after each un-install. Since there was no improvement, I just moved all pics, docs, music, etc from the internal media. I bit the bullet and did a factory reset...

    Rapid Battery Drain and Very Sluggish on Phone dialing

    Update: Last night (December 27, 2012), I did a factory refresh and limited the apps I re-installed to those I primarily use. I did not re-install the home screen/launcher replacement (though there have been no reports of the type of behavior I was experiencing), "Beautiful Widgets" or...

    Transferring music from an app to computer?

    Not sure of your question. There are many ways! 1. If you want to download music from your Droid 3 to your PC, you can connect the USB cable and use file explorer or use an App like Air Droid and move it through a web interface; 2. If you use Google Music or the Amazon MP3 app, you can move...

    Launcher search on market

    It is not stupid. It is easy to forget because these functions do not work with searches at every site.

    Launcher search on market

    This is very easy to get around by using the standard search functions. For searching you can use the '-' function (that is search but "less/do not include" the following term. In the search criteria type "launcher -go" (without the apostrophes). This will drop all launcher items that are...
