5 Android Apps To Protect Your Phone.

Android Apps To Protect Your Phone

Security is a major concern because of the recent hacking incidents with many organizations. Mobile security is also another area of concern. Since Android phones comprise nearly 47 percent of the smartphone market, Android phones are increasingly being targeted by cyber criminals. With the increase, there is an increased chance that you too will encounter malware. So, what can be done about it?




Apps to Protect From Hackers

You can install some security apps available to prevent malware from causing data loss. Here are five such apps to help prevent malicious malware from harming your Android smartphone (Many of them are free.):

1. Avast Free Mobile Security

 

The Avast Free Mobile Security app offers anti-malware and anti-theft features. If a malicious website is visited while surfing, this application will warn the user. This application will also identify potentially dangerous applications that may be installed on the Android device. SMS and call filtering allows users to block incoming messages and calls based on contacts and specific time of day that people call.
Avast is known for its firewall and enhanced anti-theft features. This application can perform full scans on installed apps and also on the SD card. The scans can take place manually or automatically.

2. AVG Mobilation Anti-Virus Free

Best Gadget 2013

Best Gadget in 2013 - India IT Guys


10. Nokia Lumia 1020

Every modern wireless phone is a cameraphone, but this Lumia is something new: a phonecamera. Its oversized sensor packs 41 megapixels of resolution; you can capture the most detailed phone snapshots you’ve ever seen, and zoom in without reducing your pictures to a blocky mess. (You have to download the high-res versions to a computer via USB cable, but it’s worth the effort.) Even iPhone and Android fans who thought they couldn’t care less about Windows Phones might find themselves smitten with this one.





9. Leap Motion Controller

Leap Motion
This pint-sized USB accessory for Windows PCs and Macs is an $80 preview of where man-machine interfaces may be headed. Plug it in, plop it on a flat surface, and you can perform tasks — from playing games to reading New York Times stories — by waving your hands in the air. It can even detect the angle your palms and how many fingers you’re sticking out. The technology is also being built into laptops, starting with HP’s Envy17 Leap Motion SE.

8. Nest Protect

Nest Labs
Silicon Valley startup Nest Labs specializes in making the most mundane household devices a lot less mundane. In 2012, it introduced a Web-savvy touch-screen thermostat. And its new product is Nest Protect, a $130 smoke and carbon-monoxide detector. Rather than emitting an eardrum-shattering squeal, Protect alerts you to hazards in a calm female voice which says helpful things like “There’s carbon monoxide in the den.” If it mistakes your smokey cooking for a fire, you can set it wise with a wave of your arm.


7. Amazon Kindle Fire HDX

Amazon
Amazon’s third-generation Kindle Fire tablets — a $239 seven-inch model and a $379 8.9-incher — are the first ones which felt truly polished and pleasing from the day they debuted. As always, they make it as simple as possible to consume mass quantities of Amazon content — video, music, books, games and more. And they’ve got one feature that’s a ground-breaking dazzler: Mayday, which lets you get tech support from a real live Amazon rep who appears on screen and can take control of your tablet.

6. Microsoft Xbox One

Microsoft
Officially, Microsoft’s Xbox One is a game console, but its aspirations go far beyond play. With built-in video calls via Skype, integration with cable and satellite TV boxes and an interface derived from Windows 8, it’s really a living-room PC. The most intriguing technology is built into the new Kinect sensor, which understands spoken commands, recognizes faces and can even measure your heart rate. Some aspects of the One are still rough around the edges, but it’s going to be fascinating to see where it goes.

5. Apple iPhone 5s

Apple
iPhones with an “s” at the end of their model numbers are supposedly snoozers, because they focus on refinements to the previous year’s model. But the iPhone 5s introduces two of the best smartphone features which Apple or anyone else has ever come up with. The Touch ID sensor lets unlock your phone with a quick press of your finger or thumb. And the camera sports a unique dual-LED flash which provides subtle, custom lighting for an array of picture-taking scenarios.

4. Pebble Smartwatch

Pebble
Whether smartwatches ever turn into a booming business to rival smartphones or tablets remains anyone’s guess. But Pebble is off to a promising start. The $150 wearable gizmo acts as a satellite for your iPhone or Android handset, receiving snippets such as text-message notifications via Bluetooth and displaying them on its power-efficient E Ink display. Third-party developers can write programs to let it do everything from playing games to tracking your fitness. Did we mention that it tells time?


3. Oculus Rift Development Kit

virtuix-omni-oculus-rift-demo

At the moment, Oculus Rift is only available in a $300 kit aimed at game developers. But once you strap on this virtual-reality headset onto your noggin and experience it in action, you’ll get itchy for the consumer release, which is scheduled for 2014. Used with a PC or Android device, Rift will let games create 3D worlds which surround you — you can even look over your shoulder for enemies lurking behind. If the games live up to the hardware’s potential, it could be an epoch-shifting landmark.

2. Apple’s new iPads

Apple
Do you want a powerful iPad or a portable one? How about both? At just one pound and .29-inch thick, the 9.7-inch iPad Air is much svelter than previous full-sized models. And except for the smaller screen, the 7.9-inch iPad Mini with Retina has almost exactly the same potent components as its big brother, as well as the same ten-hour battery life. Both benefit hugely from the App Store’s 475,000 iPad-optimized apps. It’s best tablet you can buy, in two convenient sizes.

1. Google Chromecast

chromecastathome
Instead of trying to do everything — like Google’s famously ambitious and unsuccessful Google TV — this thumb-sized gizmo does one thing, does it as simply as possible and does it for the impulse-purchase price of $35. Plug it into one of your TV’s HDMI ports, and you can fling videos and other content from your laptop, tablet or phone to the big screen, no wires involved. Lots of companies have built devices to do this; Chromecast is the first one that gets it right.

Top 10 Websites To Test Coding Online

websites+for+online+codingIn this article I want to outline 10 interesting web apps for testing your code online. All of these apps require an Internet connection, and some of the more advanced editors offer pro plans to upgrade your account features. But most of these tools will surely come in handy when you’re scrambling to debug a block of JavaScript or PHP.
Modern trends and webapps have dramatically changed the way web developers can build. Obviously you need some type of IDE to code new files and save them for deployment. But what about just testing your code snippets? There are more tools available now than ever before!






1. CodePad
testingcodesnippets2



codepad is an online compiler/interpreter, and a simple collaboration tool. Paste your code below, and codepad will run it and give you a short URL you can use to share it in chat or email.

2. Write Code Online
02-write-code-online-website
The main website for WriteCodeOnline.com actually redirects to their JavaScript editor. You can choose among JS, PHP, and basic URL encoding. Their application is very safe to use and feels lighter than other alternatives.
What’s interesting is that you’ll see the output results directly underneath the text field. So when you hit “run code” it will parse through everything and display the result for you to see. It can be tough debugging some larger PHP scripts because you need to include other files.




3.TinkerBin
                    
testingcodesnippets11
                           

Tinkerbin lets you play with HTML,Javascript and CSS without creating files or uplading to servers. It also supports Coffeescript, Sass(with compass), Less, HAML and more. Tinkerbin may actually be my favorite online code editing resource. It supports web developers coding in HTML5/CSS3/JS and renders the output directly on-screen. The application is still in Alpha development, but most of the tools work perfectly and can quickly catch bugs.

4. JS Bin

04-jsbin-code-demo

In a similar fashion as above, jsbin is a simple JavaScript debugging console. Their pitch involves a collaborative effort where you can share a private link with other developers and write together in real time.
As you’re coding different elements the drafts will autosave. You have the ability to download your final product or keep the source code saved online. Their system is much more advanced for exporting and keeping your code as a bare template.

5. JS Fiddle




testingcodesnippets3


jsfiddle is one the most popular playground for web developers. It’s an online editor for snippets build from HTML, CSS and JavaScript.You can also share your code snippets with others and embed them in a blog.


Anybody who has browsed through Stack Overflow must know about jsFiddle. Their interface is a whole lot difference compared to JS Bin, along with support for more complex functions. Right away you can signup for a free account and start saving your code samples online. jsFiddle offers a short URL which you can share around the Web via Twitter, Facebook, even Stack. But notice you do not need an account to start coding. It’s just a handy feature to keep everything organized.

6. CSS Desk


07-cssdesk-coding-css3-html-ide


Moving from the world of scripting into stylesheet language, we have CSSDesk. You’ve got a similar setup like all the rest, with your source code on the left and final webpage render on the right. This webapp is great for building small webpage templates and testing the longer CSS3 properties with gradients and box shadows.

7. JSdo.it




08-jsdo-it-coding-html5-programming
Some of the apps appear to have Japanese writing which makes me believe it was originally created somewhere in Asia. But what I love about their interface is how you can actually upload files you’ve already created and store them into a project. It’s such an easy process to store full webpage mockups online where you can access and edit them from any computer.

8. Google Code PlayGround




09-google-code-sandbox-maps-api

I would recommend saving this tool only as a resource. It’s not perfect for debugging everything you write. But Google is a huge company with a lot of open source API data. If you ever need to pull content from YouTube or custom Google Searches, this is the sandbox you want to use.
Google Code Playground is another great online tool test and run your code without opening an external editor.All of the API’s are loaded for you in the Pick an API box


9.IDEOne


11-objectivec-ideone-coding


What’s so great about their app is how you can quickly debug many different programming languages from the same page. You can also store this source code via a unique URL to share around the Web. However I do feel that their layout is very cluttered with ads and other content, it makes using their website difficult. It would be really cool to see the option of including alternate code libraries, such as Cocoa Touch for iPhone app development.

10. Viper 7 CodePad


12-codepad-viper-7-webapp



This webapp also named Codepad is hosted on a website viper-7.com, which also redirects to the same online editor. Their debugging tools are setup for PHP output where you can change between PHP5 and PHP4.
If you create an account you can use their service as a personal storage system. Much like other online editors, you can name each PHP project and keep them hosted online for free. It’s such a powerful code editor because you don’t need any software on your computer at the time. As you parse each script the editor will offer additional meta details, such as browser request & response headers.

ZenTek: CPU Cache Flushing Fallacy

ZenTek: CPU Cache Flushing Fallacy

Joins Colt on Android Sniper System


General Dynamics Canada and Colt Canada are working together to plug Colt’s Sniper Weapon & Observer Reconnaissance Devices system into the battlefield network.
Colt showed off the SWORD system earlier this year at the Association of the United States Army’s annual meeting. The Android-based system joins weapon-mounted surveillance and targeting devices with ruggedized smartphone-like technology, Colt officials maintain.

The SWORD system is designed to bring situational-awareness information directly to the solider via his weapon and it will be offered as an alternative to radio-centric individual soldier systems. Based on commercial components, the SWORD system provides power, data and navigation infrastructure within the weapon, including GPS and inertial navigation for GPS-denied situations, Colt officials maintain.






SWORD makes sense as an integrated soldier system,” Jeff MacLeod, general manager of Colt Canada, said in a recent press release. “By combining modern smartphone technology with weapon-mounted scopes and laser rangefinders, soldiers have all the information they need, literally at their fingertips. SWORD is not about simply delivering a computer or a display to soldiers; it delivers an entirely new capability centered on the rifle.

 Maybe GD and Colt will have more luck.

 Cooperation between Colt and General Dynamics Canada builds on the strengths of both companies,” says David Ibbetson, vice president, General Dynamics C4 Systems International. “Colt has worldwide expertise in developing and delivering rifles, while General Dynamics has the networking experience needed to connect individual soldiers. The combined solution gives soldiers the smartphone capability they have been asking for in the form of an Android-networked rifle.
