Android Phone Tips

Android smartphones and Apple’s iPhones are very different. Android phones are highly customizable. You can change everything from your Android phone’s home screen to the way you download apps because Android is open source. The tips below will show you how easy it is to tailor your smartphone to your specific needs.

One-Touch Dialing
Certainly there are people in your life that you call more then others. With Android phones, it is possible to setup one-touch dialing for these people. Just press an open space on your home screen, when the menu pops up select the “Shortcuts” option. Choose Direct Dial and find the right person from your list of contacts. You can then select which button you’d like them set to. Easy as that!

Saving Time Searching the Web
You can individualize your Android phone so you spend less time looking for your favorite Websites, too, by moving your top Web sites right to your phone’s home screen. Do this by pressing and holding onto any site listed in your browser’s bookmarks. Soon, a list of options will pop up. Press the “Add Shortcut to Home” option, and the selected Web page will now appear on your phone’s home page.

Organizing with Folders
Creating folders on your Android phone can help you keep everything organized, from your contacts to work documents. To create folders on your home screen, press a blank space on the screen. When the menu pops up, choose “Folders.” This will permit you to create folders and name them. Then, simply, drag and drop documents, images, and files into these folders.
