Samsung Flow beta

sam.JPGAfter introducing the Samsung Flow at its developer conference in 2014, Samsung has oficially released the beta version of the app. Samsung Flow allows the users to move content between Samsung devices to continue an on-going activity. Like, transferring an article link from smartphone to tablet for reading or moving an address from tablet to smartphone for navigation. It is currently supported on devices like Galaxy S5, S6, S6 edge, Alpha, Note 4, Note edge and Tab S, but the company plans to expand support to more devices, which include Bluetooth Low Energy compatibility.“Flow supports existing applications through Android’s Share mechanism, allowing you to start transferring and deferring activities right away. Flow gets even better when developers provide a Flow action in their applications, allowing them to create truly seamless transitions across devices and time,” added Samsung. With Flow, users can transfer an activity to the right device for a task, pick up right where you left off rather than starting from scratch on the new device. Users can also defer an activity when the right device is not immediately at hand or there just isn’t enough time to finish up a task. Resume it when you’re ready.

tipo.JPGWhen you’re writing on your smartphone, it can be easy to make mistakes, and even easier to miss them until you hit send. Tipo wants to help fix that by alerting you to any typos in your message when they happen. It does this by either vibrating or flashing the screen (or both) so you’re not caught out. You can upgrade to the premium version which will help you improve your typing and spellings (if you feel it needs work).
