This is Airdrop for Android

There are two big features that every iOS user mentions when they’re referring to some of the ways iOS is better than Android: iMessage and Airdrop. While I don’t have a solution for iMessage on Android, I think I might have found a decent Airdrop for Android equivalent. Let me show you. Not too long ago Google released an app for Android that was meant to help you organize the files on your phone, help you optimize storage, etc. but it happens to have a feature in it that lets you transfer files between two Android phones and it is …

Does Turning Off Your Phone Make It Charge Faster?

So this video is a bit of a myth-busting episode, I suppose. You see, there are little things in the tech world that we all say to each other and assume are true but I feel like should actually be tested and proved right or wrong. One such thing and what I want to test today is the claim I’ve heard over and over that if you turn off your phone while it is charging, it’ll charge faster. So I grabbed an Android and an iOS phone (P30 Pro and XS Max to be specific) and charged them both for …

Say on a hard drive that only you can access and isn’t stored on the web? Is there a way to make this happen automatically without having to think about it? …

The Best Insoles Come from an App?

Dr. Scholl’s recently reached out and asked me to check out their new custom insoles and their new app (more on how those two things are related shortly).

Experiment time. This time, we’re going to test the batteries on the iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X. To do this, I am running all of the phones on the same Wifi network with all the same accounts active on them (and getting notifications at the same time), screen brightness is set to 50% and we’re streaming the same Nyan cat video from YouTube on them all. Let’s see what happens. Well, oddly enough, the iPhone X won which was surprising to me considering I feel on a day to day it’s battery …
