Download Youtube Videos for free on iPhone

July 17, 2015
Youtube has been making it harder and harder to download Youtube videos, whether you're on an iPhone, Android phone, PC, etc. It's fairly easy to avoid those limitations on a computer as you can find many sites that let you download videos, but on the iPhone, apps with the ability to download Youtube videos tend to be removed from the App Store or completely rejected in the first place.

Some apps have managed to stay, I only know of one app right now.

Internet temporarily down? Try this with Chrome

July 17, 2015
There are many scenarios in which you may be left with a few minutes with no internet. Instead of endlessly refreshing your browser hoping to see the webpage load, Google is offering a more fun option to Chrome users.

What may look like a boring page with a random dinosaur is in fact, a hidden game. Tap the up arrow on your keyboard and the random dinosaur will jump up, and the game will start. All you do is jump over cacti, but it's certainly a lot more fun than hitting F5 forever. Once you regain internet connection I believe the game ends itself and your page loads, otherwise try and raise your high score.

The game is fairly easy after a few tries. Regardless, it's a fun way to pass those few minutes that may seem endless.

May 8, 2015
The weekend is here which means it's time to refresh the games on your phone. You can spend your weekend searching through the App Store's wilderness or check out the 3 games I've collected here for you. These are games I've been playing a lot last week so I guarantee they're fun. All three games are available for both iOS and Android for free and are in different categories.

1- Orbits - by Turbo Chilli

Jump from circle to circle with one tap. The game can be played with one hand and is fast paced. Collect diamonds, dodge spikes and complete levels. Despite being a one handed game it requires a lot of focus and thinking in order to complete the levels.

If you're after a beautiful game that you can play with one hand then you may want to try out Orbits. You can disable ads and skip levels with in-app purchases, but can play the full game for free.

Download on: iPhone/iPad, Android.

Hidden New iOS 8 Feature Ensures You Never Lose Your iPhone

April 17, 2015
Losing your iPhone seems to be very common these days. It's why Apple introduced Find My iPhone, a feature which most people have turned on. But there is one new feature introduced in iOS 8 that is off by default, and I would like to encourage you all to turn it on.

The feature is found if you head over to Settings --> iCloud --> Find My iPhone. There's a new toggle called "Send Last Location". This sends the location of your iPhone to Apple's servers when your battery gets too low. The point of this is because if your iPhone has no battery you are unable to check it's location using Find My iPhone.
