nav ring disabler

NavBar Ring Disabler is a simple app which disables Apps like Google Search, and any other apps from opening when you swipe your finger up from the on-screen home button on your launcher. You do not need to root your smartphone or tablet, so it should work on most Google Android 4.1 and up devices with onscreen system bar buttons at the bottom.

It is easy to use. I just need to install the app, and launch it. When it is launch, I press the “Disable Nav Bar Ring” to disable Google from loading when I swipe up. It can’t disable the ring from showing up, but it stops Google and other apps from loading to nothing when you swipe up from your home button on your screen. [click to continue…]


hide system bar

Hide System Bar by Dreamori is a free App for Google Android which hides Google Android’s top notification bar, and bottom navigation bar without the need to root Google Android. Hiding the system in Android frees up almost 1 inch of space on my 7 inch tablet, and not having the notification bar and system bar showing makes reading, playing games, web browsing, and watching videos better because I can have a bigger picture, or view more of a website or text on an eBook. It is also less distracting because there are no notifications, and system bar icon distracting me. Using Hide System Bar makes my screen look bigger because there are no black system bar using up my screen space, so this is a good app for smaller smartphones and tablets.

Hide System Bar is useful for playing games like Angry Birds and video where you do not need the notification, or navigational bar to play a game, or watch a video.  For games like Fruit Ninja where you need to swipe the top or bottom of the screen a lot will show the navigational system bar, and notification bar which would interfere with your gaming.

Well File Manager

Well File Manager is a File Manager App for browsing Google Android’s storage, SD cards, and external drives. It can copy,  cut, paste, rename and delete a file or multiple files and folder easily. It can also compress, and uncompress files and folders in Zip files.  It also can show and hide hidden files in its file manager. You can also long press on a file, and pick details to see the properties like size, type, location, etc of the file or folder.

I like the simple flat 2D design of  Well File Manager. It is easy to select multiple files at once with the Check boxes or select all buttons, so I can easily copy, cut, paste, or delete more than one file at once in Well File Manager. There are also thumbnail images of video, pictures, and App APK files for more easily finding files by looking at the thumbnail image. [click to continue…]
