This is a new page for our soon to start regular Android sessions. As it expands we may change this into a subsite like the Safe and Clean website, for ease of maintenance.
Right now the contents are temporary, and will be reviewed when the new sessions start - though there have been some minor changes/additions.
Web PC suite
Control Android from your PC - includes file transfers - all wirelessly.
Put your phone away and send/receive SMS directly from your PC or Android tablet - over the web - no SMS charges. Make sure you install the MightyText Android phone app on your phone first.
WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message.
ES File Explorer
Allows you to join your own LAN (Local Area Network) wirelessly and share files from other computers. For example you can play songs on your tablet or 'phone which are actually stored on your PC without having to transfer them into your tablet/phone. You need to download it to your tablet/phone (not your PC).
Good instructions here.
This is a helpful guide to what is using your battery - helps you to identify ways to make the battery last longer.
