Android is making waves in a big way, so for all of you Android folks, here’s a roundup of Tips & Tricks to make the most of your shiny smartphone.
- Techcredo Tips & Tricks. Fab list of tips for Android, some basic some not so (e.g. how to clear the custom dictionary). Bookmark it.
- MaximumPC Tips & Tricks One point I disagree with is the suggestion to root your phone so you can use different operating system versions etc. I rooted a Pulse recently in order to install Android 2.1, and although it worked, it now crashes a fair bit, which is a bit tedious. Rooting and customisation of your handset will become a lot of fun down the line, but right now it’s still very much for geeky risk takers only.
