Better than Greenify?Guys I had enabled a bunch of stuff on my GS8 and battery was taking a huge hit.
It still sucks that android still suffers from rogue apps or its own system doing a lot of wakelocks.
The other day I got 2 hours of screen on time. that's ridiculous.
My previous iPhone and iOS fw didn't suffer from that.
Today I installed Forcedoze and it has been great at making sure the phone is "resting" when the screen is off.
Unplugged at noon from 100% and it's 4:00 pm and battery is at 88%. It wasn't heavy usage but I can see the phone was sleeping well and still getting my notifications.
The app is a bit tricky to enable, have to run 2 adb commands on a pc to enable permissions, but it's really worth it.
Highly recommended guys.
Let me know if you need some help setting it up.
Source: Android PoliceSwype Keyboard is now discontinued
For years, Swype Keyboard was one of the best third-party keyboards for Android, with a focus on swipe typing and voice dictation. But all good things must come to an end, and Nuance Communications Inc has confirmed that Swype is no longer under development.
Swype for Android arrived on the Play Store in 2013, developed by the same company behind the 'Dragon' natural speaking software. It was popular for a while, even with a privacy issue or two. A user on Reddit recently emailed the developers about a bug, but received the following response:
Shortly afterwards, XDA Developers reached out to Nuance, and the company confirmed it was ending development of Swype. It's still on the Play Store, so if you want a dead keyboard app for some reason, grab it while you can.Nuance will no longer be updating the Swype+Dragon keyboard for Android. We’re sorry to leave the direct-to-consumer keyboard business, but this change is necessary to allow us to concentrate on developing our AI solutions for sale directly to businesses.
We hope you enjoyed using Swype, we sure enjoyed working with the Swype community.
It doesnt need security and compatibility updates, unlike software."a dead keyboard app"
I find that funny. You see, the physical keyboard I have with my pc never gets updates.
I think that would be very doable, with both Android or Windows powered tablets.Speaking of tablets im hoping to get one to by the end of the year... One for reading, emulation and if i could even remotely access my pc to play visual novels from it on the tablet while sitting in bed it would be perfect.
Sounds like you're looking for a Shield. Those received plenty system updates and can stream PC games if you have a geforce gpu/geforce experience.Speaking of tablets im hoping to get one to by the end of the year...
