How To Get More From Google Play Store

In the fast evolving technological world, there is always the need for you to install, upgrade and uninstall different applications on your phone in order to stay abreast of the changing times and also enjoy the services provided by different applications.

Google Play Store is a feature that gives you access to do this as many times as you like. It is arguably one of the most important features on your phone.

Seeing as some android devices do not have it already pre-installed, you may need to download it and have it installed in order to enjoy the access it provides to numerous services. Once it is nestling nicely in your device, below are some ways you can get the best out of it.

First of all, go through the numerous applications and ratings on display in the store. I will also advise that you read the reviews so you will not download applications you will later come to loathe.

You will also want to control downloads done using your phone in the event that you leave your phone in the possession of some other persons. To do this, you will need to set a password. With this in place, you are the only person with full access to make downloads from the store with your phone.

Next, you should explore the settings of your Google Play Store. From there you can make the necessary changes according to your preference so that older and popular searches do not keep appearing.

There are many ways of purchasing applications from this medium. The good thing is there is no specified way for each country or person. You choose what works for you.

You can either choose to link your credit card to the play store and make payments with it or you can go for other options such as buying a google gift card so you are able to acquire new applications every time you redeem it. You will have to enter a code, then proceed with your favorite downloads.

There is another thing you can do to enjoy the Google Play Store. You can add applications that you would love to get your hands on in a wish list for later purchases so you don’t forget them. It also makes it easier to locate these applications rather than searching for them all over again.

Google Play Store comes with notifications to download applications, which can be terribly annoying most of the time. To rid yourself of this, you can disable their notification in the play store settings.

You also can cancel the ‘auto add widget' option from the settings to stop widgets showing up on the home screen every time you make a download.

Finally, use the android device manager to control your device from your play store. This means you can lock your device, make calls and erase data with it, plus make downloads from the web version of play store.

You now know why you need the Google Play Store and how you can make the best of it if you already do have it.

Is Windows 10 Better, Stronger And Faster Than Other OS?

The launch of Microsoft Windows 10 on July 29, 2015, caused a very noticeable splash. For many, switching over to the new operation system is what everyone should do, while for others, it is not as easy as that.

Apart from the cost of switching over to this new OS, every other thing is free. The new operating system is free for its lifetime. This means that updates and supports come at no charge as long as the operating system is supported by Microsoft.

END OF MOST OS SUPPORT

Windows 7 has an extended support that extends only to 2020, while that of Windows 8 ends in 10th January ,2023. Windows 10, on the other hand, has support that extends to October 14th, 2025.

 The mainstream support for windows 7 already came to an end in January 13th, 2015. Next year, by January 10th, the mainstream support for windows 8 will cease.

By upgrading to window 10, you secure more years of mainstream and extended support.

End of mainstream support means that there will no longer be any enhancement of the product although support for security and reliability will still be in place.

When extended support comes to an end, there will be no warranty claims, non-security hotfixes and new features and designs.

Work Rate

When windows 10 was put to test for speed against windows 7 and windows 8.1, it came out faster, mere seconds before the other two in every performance. In application, storage and gaming performances, however, windows 10 does not stand out much against the other operating systems.

Features

In windows 10, futuristic features are brought to the world of computing. Users enjoy enhanced collaboration, mobility and more ease in usage with a fresh look. Some of these enhancements are:

Mobility

Windows 10 can be used on all Microsoft devices, desktops, laptops, hybrids, tablets and even smart phones. It provides a single platform for all your devices.

Cortana

This feature is a phone voice assistant that answers your questions within seconds. It also opens emails, set reminders, and much more.

Windows Hello

This feature introduces a security system that is more secure. You have no more need for passwords as you just have to show your face or touch the device with your finger for biometric authentication.

Edge

A faster way to access the internet, the edge web browser lets you draw, type and write notes directly on the web pages, which you can then share with others.

Battery Saver

This limits background activity and adjusts hardware settings when activated to conserve battery.

Updates

Security patches are delivered by windows 10 outside windows update. This is so they can go straight to your PC once they are available.

If you decide that Windows 10 is better, then it is important to test the OS for compatibility with your applications, hardware, drivers, printers and other devices.

Many updates and patches have been released since the new OS was launched. In coming times, there will definitely be more updates as users test out the new OS.
