Check Out These 21 Hidden Android Tricks You May Have Missed

1. Automate your tasks

They say don't waste time on things that have already been invented. And this saying can be wisely picked up and applied to our daily lives, especially when it comes to our smartphones. So how to achieve this? Simple. We automate tasks. MacroDroid is the application that rises to the occasion and handles tasks seamlessly.

Need to know when the phone is 100% charged? Ask him to play a sound. This is just a simple example of what this powerful application can do. It contains a multitude of macros that you can use. Plus, there's a whole world of actions, triggers, and constraints you'll need to create your own macro.

The app comes with a simple interface and is extremely easy to use. And before you know it, these macros will handle tasks for you like a pro.

2. Translate text on the fly

Undoubtedly, Google translate is an amazing application that allows you to translate text on the fly. But then, copying the text and then pasting it into the browser can be tedious. Android app for google translate is a nifty app that solves the dilemma for you. The implementation is so neat that you wouldn't need to leave the current application to do the translation.

All you have to do is select some of the text and tap the three-dot menu. Once done, you will see the pop-up translate option on the screen. And from there, it's a piece of cake, select the language you want and bam, you have the translation at your fingertips.

As soon as you unlock your phone, the app notifies you of unsuccessful bids.

3. Take action

All in one Gestures is an app that lets you create custom gestures for the tiniest of tasks like turning on the flashlight or taking a screenshot. Not only does it allow you to create them by swiping from the sides of the device, but also from the corners of it.

Thus, you save a lot of your time by avoiding doing redundant things.

4. Multitask like a pro

Android Nougat unleashed a host of amazing features and among them, the one that got me most excited was the split-screen mode. But then, it usually takes time, patience, and practice to perfect the art of splitting the screen in half. So if you're pressed for time, an app called Screens solves that particular problem.

This nifty app lets you create two shortcuts for the apps you need most during your multitasking sessions. Say, for example, you often need Google Keep and the calculator to sort through weekly expenses. All you have to do is add these apps and these shortcuts will be on the home screen for you to access at any time.

The screens require accessibility permissions to be set and once that's done, handle multitasking like a pro.

5. Catch the crook

Security is of utmost importance these days and it is essential that we lock our phones with the most secure password or pattern. But does that stop people from trying their luck to unlock your phone? Unfortunately, the answer is no. From your friend to a stranger, chances are that if a phone is found inactive (with no owner in sight), people will try to unlock it.

CrookCatcher helps identify who is pushing their luck to unlock your device. It clicks an image every time a wrong password or PIN is entered.

The scammer's selfie is then mailed to you. Mainly used to find the location of the stolen phone and the identity of the thief, this application also sends the location of the device.

6. Solve the equation

Well, most will definitely agree that being stuck with a difficult equation can be taxing at times. But wait, before you throw your hands up in frustration, there's an app that promises to fix (yes, literally fix) these problems. Say hello to Photomath. All you have to do is point the camera at the equation and this app will not only provide you with answers, it will show you the steps to answer.

Well, isn't that nice? From finding square roots of numbers to solving logarithms, it's a dream calculator. Beyond that, it also includes a magic calculator where you can enter your equations and Photomath will come up with the answer.

Cool tip :Make sure you write neatly and legibly and put in parentheses where necessary. Yes, the hooks really helped.

As for me, I was grateful that at least my handwriting was still readable for robots. I can't say the same for humans, though.

7. Round the corners

Want your phone to sport rounded corners like the latest LG-G6? Cornerfly helps you achieve this. It takes the sharp look off the corners of glasses and blends it in for a cool rounded effect.

Exceptionally easy to configure, all you have to do is decide on the overlay settings in the navigation bar and status bar and you're done. So go ahead and enjoy the new look of your Android.

It's a Wrap!
