Are Smartphones Being Used Smartly Enough?
The world’s largest database of tips, tricks, shortcuts and guides for all of the latest smartphones has been launched to address usability issues and enhance user productivity.
By: Bryan Hunter
The web site’s founder Bryan Hunter, explains: "I recently purchased a top of the range Android smartphone. The manual was wafer thin, but I wanted to learn all I could in order to use the phone to organise my life."
"Rather than trawl through pages of geeky tech forums, I simply looked up several dozen tips and tricks from my own site. The productivity I gained was enormous," he adds.
Whether the tip is a handy voice recognition command, or perhaps a better was to organise your messages, the web site provides a valuable resource to help put the “smart” back in smartphone.
Ironically, the idea for Phone Tips and Tricks came from "geeky" tech forums about mobile phones - and, as Hunter found, the forums were not useful enough.
"I came across a forum discussion about tips and tricks for an old phone of mine: the discussion included several pages of trivial talk, with the odd nugget of useful information. I decided to cut out the nonsense and provide a simple list of these tips and tricks, not just for one phone, but for every phone," says Hunter.
After several months of tip-gathering, the site was launched and it now has thousands of tips, for dozens of devices, serving tens of thousands of users across 174 countries.
The success of the initiative prompted Hunter to add another service to his initial offering. A series of authoritative guides was then launched to explore specific areas of interest to smartphone users. Topics featured in the guides include ‘How to unlock your phone’ and ‘How to avoid roaming charges’.
The format of the guides is clear and impartial and provides information and links to products where appropriate. Hunter also writes articles based on mobile industry news, reviews and information on future product releases.
Phone Tips and Tricks was founded in 2011 to help users get the most from their smartphones. Offering hundreds of tips, tricks, shortcuts and guides for all of the latest devices, the site offers the quickest way to use your smartphone, smartly.
