How to send & receive texts (SMS) from your Android tablet

As more individuals own both a smartphone and a tablet, you would want the devices to work together.  If you are like most people, you use your tablet (especially if its WiFi only) at home.  Instead of carrying around your phone and tablet, you can use your tablet primarily at home.  Or you have a situation where you are charging your phone but you do not want to miss your texts.  In the video below, I will show you how to setup your phone and tablet so that you can send and received text from your Android tablet using an excellent app called MightyText (available in the Google Play Store). 


However, MightyText does much more:
  • Allows you to also send and receive texts from your computer.  What is great is that all your devices are sync'd.
  • Sends you call notifications.
  • Send photos, videos & maps to your phone.
  • Schedule messages (Pro version)
  • Themes (Pro version)
  • Send bulk SMS (Pro version)
  • Templates (Pro version)
  • Much more

Nexus 9 vs. NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet - Spec Comparison

With Google releasing their highly anticipated Nexus 9 tablet a few weeks ago, the question is whether its a powerful tablet.  However, NVIDIA released its own powerful new tablet - SHIELD Tablet before the release of the Nexus 9.  Although NVIDIA promotes their tablet as a gaming tablet, one should not discount it because you are not a "gamer".  The SHIELD is very capable  for every day activities.  Plus you can rest assure that with the SHIELD Tablet, you do not need to worry about needing to replace it in a year or two because its hardware is outdated.  Although we have not reviewed either tablet, we did put together a spec comparison.  So how do they look?  Continue below.

Acase TipTop Case for the iPad Air Review



With many cases out for the iPad, it is sometimes difficult to decide which cases are good.  There are also many types of cases: sleeves; folio covers; clutch; built-in keyboards; etc.  Plus there are different price ranges too.

Today, we are reviewing the Acase TipTop which is a hard shell folio case for the new iPad Air (5th generation).  This case was designed specifically for the new iPad Air which is thinner than previous generation iPads.  Therefore one must look for a case that specifically fits the new iPad Air.

Upgrading to rooted Android 4.3 on Nexus 7 (original version)

     Android 4.3 is has been available for a little over a week (longer depending on when you read this article).  If you are currently rooted, you will lose root by taking the Over-The-Air (OTA) upgrade.  However if you want to keep root and not lose all your apps and data, there is a rooted Android 4.3 file that you may use and keep root plus your apps and data.  This is stock Android not a custom ROM.  If you want to install custom ROM, there are many threads that provide information on this.  This article only pertains to stock Android 4.3.  Continue reading...

Asus ME400 Windows Tablet - First Impression

   I had the opportunity to test Asus' VivoTab ME400 tablet.  At first site, it looks small/short compared to typical 10" tablets.  It is one of the lightest 10" tablets at only 1.3lbs which is as light as the Samsung Galaxy 10.1.  Also one of the thinnest at .4".

   The 10.1" screen has an 1366x768 resolution capacitive screen which looked great .  It is one of the nicest looking screens that I have seen.  The screen is apparently scratch resistant.  The screen also has 178 degree viewing angle.
