Android Assistant is a easy to use, and fast system utility program for Google Android. Using Android Assistant can make your slow Google Android smartphone or tablet perform faster, have more free space by deleting un-needed cache files, and old temporary files on your devices storage, and also improve your battery life by using the Battery saver tool. It has a lot of features which include a cache cleaner, system cleaners, battery saver tool, file manager, startup managers, batch installer, batch uninstaller, process battery use monitor, volume and ringer controls, startup time, startup silencer, system info, memory widget, and App 2 SD.
Android Assistant opens in a few seconds after tapping on the shortcut in my home screen. It also displays how long it takes for Android to start up during the Android start up has finished. [click to continue…]
It is simple, and fast to back up a Raspberry Pi’s SD Card which contains the operating system, programs, personal files, and settings. SD Cards sometimes get broken, and need to be formatted, or replace, so it is important to make an SD card image backup file of your Raspberry Pi’s SD card, so you can easily re-install/image your Raspberry Pi’s Operating system, programs, files, and settings from an SD card image which you made. You also protect your files by having them backup, and restoring your Raspberry Pi’s Operating files, settings, and files from a SD Card .img image file to a SD card is a lot faster than manually re-installing the Raspberry Pi’s OS, programs, files, and settings which can take hours, or days depending on how skilled you are at installing operating systems, and files on the Pi.
The first step is to shutdown your Pi in Rasbian from the menu on the bottom left of the Rasbain OS. Once your Pi has shut down, you would need to unplug your Pi, and remove your Pi’s SD Card from the SD card slot.

One of the most useful accessories for the Raspberry Pi mini PC, laptop, and desktop PCs is a USB 2.0 Hub like Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs (HB-UMLS) because it adds 4 or more empty USB 2.0 ports to the computer. A USB Hub is very useful if you plan on using the Raspberry Pi as a mini desktop computer because 2 USB plugs are usually not enough if you plan on also plugging in a USB flash drive, USB external hard drive, Wi-Fi USB adapter, Bluetooth adapter, and other USB accessories which work with the Raspberry Pi. The 2 USB ports are not enough since they are usually use for the USB keyboard and mouse.
The Raspberry Pi’s 1 USB port can power a 4 port USB 2.0 hub with no power adapter which also has a keyboard, mouse, a wifi adapter, and 1 flash drive plugged into the hub in my experience. But, if you plan on also plugging in a USB fan, USB hard drive without a separate power adapter, and other high powered USB accessories, I recommend a powered USB hub. [click to continue…]
