Surprising things you can do with your mobile

Android and iOS devices have countless customization, feature, and application options. You can accomplish far more with a smartphone than with any other smartphone operating system. Most of us use our smartphones for calls, messages, taking pictures, and other essential tasks; however, an Android smartphone is not only restricted to those functions. You may not know all the exciting things your Android smartphone can perform.

Replace that disappearing remote control

The idea is that you can use your phone to replace the remote control for devices like your TV, air conditioner, DVD player, projector, and everything else. Some Android devices provide a custom remote capability, which is often found on your home screen in the Tools or System folder.

But if you lack that functionality, don’t worry. A reliable third-party remote control app is available for download from the Google Play Store.

The Apple TV remote has been included in the control center of the most recent iOS releases for our iPhone users. Older versions have the option of manually adding it.

QR Code Scanner Without an App

Instead of needing a specific QR code reader software, you can now simply aim your iPhone camera at a QR code and have it scan for you. To access the product page or website, you need to open your camera app, point your camera at the QR code, and then touch the ensuing notification. Fortunately, you can accomplish the same task on an Android device as well by launching the Google App, turning on-screen search, and following the same steps.

Split your screen

You can run apps simultaneously on your smartphone, which is a useful function. It is a fantastic tool for multitasking and relieves the stress of constantly opening and shutting programs.

Apple’s iPad tablets have a multitasking function. The main way is to drag the second program from the toolbar onto the first, although Apple support offers further thorough instructions.

On the other hand, adhere to these instructions to enable this function on an Android phone.

Your recent applications will appear when you tap the Overview button on your phone (the square one on the bottom-left black bar).

By long pressing on any, it will display a menu with the symbol for split-screen. However, if it doesn’t work, hold the app in place and move it to the top or left of your screen.

Change your app. It will immediately show up beneath or next to it. The Google Play Store also offers third-party apps that you can download.

Turn your phone into a mobile casino

Did you know that the 6-inch gadget is the new casino? Thanks to technology, manufacturers are developing dedicated gaming smartphones that last you through hours of intense gaming. You only need to download the game of your choice, or better still, try cloud gaming that allows you to play from the game owner’s server without downloading the game. With your smartphone, you can play in any real money casino online without stepping out of your comfort. 

Track your fitness

You do not require a different gadget if you are a fitness enthusiast or enjoy keeping track of your health and fitness. You can conveniently monitor your steps, heart rate, and body oxygen levels. Some Android devices also allow you to detect blood pressure. Feel free to utilize the many related apps available on the Play Store.

Scan your documents

Let’s say you are outdoors having fun and have a paper that has to be submitted urgently to your client or workplace with your signature. With the use of scanner-based programs, you can quickly scan, update, and add a signature to your papers before sending them, saving you time compared to sending them over the mail.


Adventurers and travelers who enjoy exploring jungles, deserts, and mountains are undoubtedly aware of the value of a compass. There are no odds that you can use your GPS or Google Maps in the places mentioned above. However, if you have a paper map and a smartphone, you may navigate easily by utilizing the compass software on your device.

Make it a baby monitor

You can watch your baby’s sleep and listen for any movement or sound using various apps. Simply place your phone in your baby’s room, and when it detects any disturbance, it will immediately contact a phone number.
