A garbage can to put your pile of shit device in. Smartphones are bad at what they do, have a shit interface, promote distracting and antisocial (in real life) behavior, and are tracking devices for the NSA.
Get rid of them and push for a smartphone-free world in 2015.

Clover is the only 4chan app that doesn't shit itself, has the easiest navigation out of many apps, the lightest, functional(can play webms, can download single/whole threads) and doesn't crash 50% of the time.

- Chainsaw Warrior
First you have to download the languages. Open Swiftkey and then Languages. After downloading the languages, click on the small keyboard button next to the languages you downloaded. Then select the preferred keyboard layout (I have QWERTY (Estonian) on both Estonian and English). If you don't do that, you'll have to use the 3 languages separately.
Thanks dude. I'm quite new to this smartphone thing. I can't believe you can't do this on the standard keyboard.
Does google think we're all plebs who can only speak 1 language?
I laughed when I saw Spanish (USA)
Don't think these have been mentioned.
Shows you how to make nearly any kind of knot in a 3d example. Provides infodump and specialty of said knot.
No nonsense pic->pdf->email app. Enhances documents by making blacks blacker and whites whiter.
I swear this app works at the cottage but it kinda sucks that I can hear the high pitch frequency.
Just about anything.
I installed Tasker to do one simple thing, and gradually I've been exploring the power it has.
Once you know what you're doing, it's absolutely awesome. I love it.
Fdroid, Xposed framework, clover, the list is too long but those are a good start.
Sure. I think the first thing I did was disable my lockscreen when my phone connected to my home wifi.
Here's a list anyway:
>Disable WiFi when my school's network is detected, because it blocks everything and is shitty so I use 3G there
>Enable WiFi at the time I finish school, so it connects when I get home
>As I said, disable lockscreen when WiFi connects
>I sleep with my phone in airplane mode, so when the alarm goes off it turns of airplane mode and puts my phone on silent
>Keeps location services turned off unless I open an app that requires them (i.e Maps). Once the app is closed, location services are turned off again.
That's just a few off the top of my head, I've got more if you want?
The possibilities are endless. You can even do things like a stolen phone locator - when the phone receives a certain SMS message it changes the passcode, takes a picture with the front/back camera, gets GPS co-ords and emails all the data to an address.
A lot of what you can do with Tasker there are certain apps for, but I love being able to do it all from within one app, and just enable/disable the 'profiles' as I like.
Ah, I was thinking of buying Tasker to do what you said with the wifi connections but then I found out CM already had profiles that did the same so I didn't know what to do with it.
Yeah, I wasn't sure either, but it's been so worth it.
Basically Tasker stops me having do do all those annoying little niggles and toggles that take up time. Another thing I've done that I just thought of was create a profile that turned on the torch when I shook the phone. Was extremely useful when I went camping with some friends a few weeks ago in the summer.

as britfag using a galaxy S3, it grinds my fucking gears when using the standard keyboard the UK pound symbol ie. £, is on the second symbol page when the US dollar symbol is on the first. surely I'm not the only one annoyed by this? how to solve?

>Bit torrent sync
I used to think this was great until I found droidNAS. Turns your phone into a samba server. Then you can just drag and drop files right onto it. With sync I had to great a folder on my computer called 'Moto G' and copy stuff into it, which makes less sense than just copying straight onto the device.
The default android keyboard has support for multiple languages you morons. I used to have mine set up with English and German. If you go into settings you can tick as many languages as you like and then a globe icon will appear on the keyboard allowing you to switch between them.
It turns your phone into a samba server / bonjour device. On my Mac it will automatically show up as a connected device and I can drag stuff onto it. On win/Linux it will probably appear in my network devices or something.
How do I improve my battery life?
Strange, but using the performance cpu governor gives me moar battery life, probably because the cpu doesn't move the frequencies all the time...
I agree with your point about promoting antisocial behaviour.
None of the rest though.
I do my best to avoid what I see as completely pointless antisocial behaviour on my phone (endlessly scrolling through facebook, reading random articles on the internet, playing shitty pointless games). But it still performs many legitimately useful functions: messaging (over literally any medium conceivable), maps, mobile banking, being able to access any information you could ever need instantly, etc.
any apps that are not on the play store , like wifikill?
I don't get what's the problem with the AOSP keyboard, swiping works and it's very lightweight.
Maybe other options have better auto completion?
also Hacker Keyboard for SSH (VXConnectBot) and terminal emulator
whats a good niconico app? the most popular one on the play store, nicoid, cant add videos into my custom lists.
>tfw the official niconico app is region locked for some extravagantly stupid reason.

I spend 7 hours inside a building in the morning and 5 hours during the night every day. It helps that I can see how's the weather outside, without going outside to check every 20 minutes.
Because im not an autist who uses a 3rd party app for a camera i don't even use?
who the fuck needs so many apps, you just need phone, sms, and 4chan
I made it say the time with TTS every 30 minutes.
>Made it read text messages with TTS while driving

How do I change the colour of various UI elements like this one without installing another ROM?
