That is what the real time mobile tracker of the Find My Phone app does on your android phone. This is a quick review of the app, so that you may decide if you want it in your phone or not.


What is Find My Phone?

Moreover you also track a family member and know where the person is at any time. To locate the lost phone you can just log into the app’s website and track and see the lost phone’s location.

Sixsquares - Addicting Android Puzzle Game

1 Comment
In the endless sea of free android apps available on the market, it has become hard to find apps that are actually new or refreshing. Especially in saturated genres like the puzzle game genre. Every once in a while Thetic Blog writes a small piece about an app that comes to our attention. This time the app is called Sixquares, which is available for free on Google Playstore (click here to download) and it is all about getting your brain cracking. We will explain the game mechanism and list some pros and cons of the app, after that it is up to you to decide whether you want to give it a try or not.


Sixquares, a puzzle game with six squares

Sixsquares addicting android puzzle game preview

It's not too hard to derive what the game is about from it's name. The rules for solving a puzzle however might seem dazzling when you open the app for the first time. Sixquares is played on a gridded square field. There is a maximum of six squares available on that field and the goal is to get one specific block into the center. This can be achieved by sliding the blocks and although sliding might sound very familiar, this kind of sliding works in a totally different manner from other sliding puzzle games that are well known (like unblock me free, etc.). This time the blocks are not in the way and have to get out of the way, instead they have to be in the way in order to be able to move the block.

​This confusing puzzle mechanism can best be visualized as a sliding puzzle in space (even though the developers never use the word). You can only slide a block in the direction of another block, i.e. once you move a block, it keeps moving, until it is stopped by another block.

Pros & Cons


Even though the game-mechanism is fun, there are always some things to improve on apps that are this new. Here's a list of pros and cons we compiled.

Pros
  • The game is quite unique in its genre. There are lots of free sliding puzzle games available for android, but we haven’t seen a puzzle game with this kind of concept yet other than this yet. 
  • The game is challenging. It will take some time to get a good grasp on what blocks to slide where. But even when you get the hang of it, it is still way harder than you would expect from a sliding puzzle game with just six squares.
  • Challenging and not so frustrating to make a person close the game instantly. There's options to undo a move in case you make the wrong move by accident, instead of having to restart the level.
  • Supports Offline Play, meaning no Internet Connection is required to play the game.


Cons
  • Even though the design is quite polished, the colors seemed a bit dull to us. It might seem a minor flaw, but we still thought we should mention it.
  • For all of you quick-swipers out there: pay attention this time. The tutorial is only shown once. If you quickly click through it, eager to get started, you will find yourself struggling to get a hang of the game. This is a con as majority have habit of skipping tutorials to get started on the game quickly, hence make sure to go through the tutorial carefully as you play for the first time.

All in all the game is a good way to pass your time and is a bit addicting, if you like to use your brain a little. The game is not really big as it is still in development, but you will still need quite some time to play it all the way through to the end. Some puzzles might seem ridiculously hard at first glance, but once you get that navy colored block into the center and the jazzy soundtrack starts to play once more, there will be a genuine feeling of success.

How To Get More Followers On Instagram 2016

Add Comment
No matter what social network you are on, the first priority is to get a large amount of followers/fanbase. The bigger the fanbase you have, the more interaction you will get. Social Networks are also a great place for marketers to promote their products, services or interact with their fans. One of those popular social networks is Instagram, which is gaining more and more popular each day. Instagram is estimated to have 500 million monthly active users. You don't need to be a celebrity to get many followers on Instagram, you can do so while being an ordinary person with these 10 unique ways on how to get more followers on Instagram.

​Before I begin, I'd like to mention a few obvious tips that you probably already know off and would find almost everywhere on the Internet.

How to get more followers on Instagram 2016


#1. Make sure to upload a nice display picture along with few photos (more than 3) to give a impression you've photos uploaded and set a bio. Make sure to include your own name or a really cool nickname. Remember, the first impression is the last impression! On a survey taken, most people have said that they don't like following people that have no display picture along with 0 photos.

#2. Boost your followers by following people that you're sure will follow you back such as friends, relatives, neighbors etc. Just like the quote " To get money, you need money " same goes for Instagram " To get followers, you need followers ".

#3. Reciprocal. This is main concept of Social Networks, in order to maintain your followers, you have to follow back or else risk losing your followers. 

#4. Use third party tools such as crowdfire, statusbrew to see who unfollowed you, your inactive followers etc so that you can unfollow them.

#5. Link your Instagram profile on your other social network profiles. 

#6. And most importantly, be active by liking and commenting on photos.
Now that we're done with the obvious tips. Make sure you've followed them before continuing.

Have A Theme

In order to have a really successful Instagram account, you must stick to a theme/niche that interests your followers and develop a fan base based on that theme. E.g: In case you are a designer, then you can post about the fashion industry. If you are a chef, you can post about food. etc. Make sure you only post unrelated content to your niche/theme occasionally. If you do it frequently, you might end up losing followers.

Have A Schedule

In case you have a schedule, your followers will know when to expect a new picture and they will wait eagerly for it. Have a rhythm and maintain it. This does not mean that you must post daily, although it is recommended to do so. You need to have a specific schedule and stick to it in order to have a loyal following. Also try to analyze the time zones of the majority of your followers so you don't mistakenly upload photos while they're sleeping. Remember, More likes = More exposure = More followers.

Do Not Bore People

People have an expectation from you. In case you have been posting photos of your dog and kitten, then do not throw in a picture of morning sunshine. Give people what they want. Hence try to have a variation in your photos but do not move away from the theme. Look at your own photo and see if it bores you. Now decide what you want to post. Always have something new and different to share. E.g: If you're a fashion designer, you can post motivation quotes or photos about New Technology.

Have Interesting hashtags

It is a good practise to use hashtags on your photos. Hashtags will help you to get more eyeballs on your post. Hence do not stick to common hashtags. Instead, you must stick with a handful of unique hashtags that are related to the theme of your account. It's best to research hashtags to see whether it suits your photo or not, before using them and make sure not to overuse hashtags.

Set profile to Public

Most people expect to become famous overtime while having their account set to private. By doing this, hashtags will be useless as your photos won't appear when people search those hashtags. If you plan on gaining a lot of followers, make sure to set your profile to public.

How to get more followers on Instagram 2016 by interacting with followers


Interact With Your Followers

This is your way to acknowledge your followers in some way and show proof that you are alive, not dead. You need to let them know that you appreciate them by liking their photos, commenting and also tagging them when possible.

Post Good Photos/Videos

This is a obvious one but a tip that most articles fail to mention. By posting good photos and videos, you will obviously gain more likes, resulting in more followers. Post photos/videos that you know for sure will interest your followers. Take photos that can be as good as possible and make sure not to just post photos all the time, but also videos. Simply master a few photo basics in order to take a good photo.

Edit Properly

This means that you must invest in a good photo editing app. Hence you need to go much beyond the limited filters as well as editing tools of Instagram. There many photo editing apps for your smartphone which can help you achieve this.

Get Featured

Your Instagram account cannot exist in a vacuum. Hence try to develop relations with famous Instagrammers and have them feature your Instagram account by giving you a shoutout on their profile or you can blog/guest blog and link your Instagram account to direct readers to.

Take Good Selfies

Try to take good selfies. This may require you to undertake a short online course to learn basic tips such as: Make sure of simple things like keeping the focus on your face. The light should be coming from infront of you or else it will make your selfies look dark. Wear light colored clothing so that the image comes out well. Have a steady hand or else try to make use of a selfies stick in order to have impressive selfies or take photos using selfie apps, that contain filters which will make you look good and save your time from editing.


If you follow these tips correctly, you'll be able to get more followers on Instagram and most importantly, also make sure to maintain them by staying active. In simple terms, the more followers you have, the more followers you will get!
