An app to improve android battery life: Toggle Track android app.

We all know GPS is turned on when using apps like Uber, Ola ,Lyft, Google Maps,etc.
But did you know there's something called as WiFi Scanning on your android devices?
Yes, that's right its hidden in WiFi settings in older devices. While on newer android versions its in location settings.
Let's see what this WiFi scanning is. When apps use GPS they turn on WiFi scanning to scan for nearby WiFi to get a more accurate location. That's how Maps, Uber, etc are able to get accurate locations. But sadly when you exit the app, they do not switch OFF the GPS and WiFi scanning. Although few may notice GPS being on, and toggle it OFF, there's a catch here. This only switches OFF the GPS and not WiFi scanning. Your status bar toggle icon can tell you about GPS state. Worst part is there's no toggle or app to indicate if WiFi scanning is on.

Imagine the whole day, our phone is scanning for WiFi networks without your notice. That's a decrease on the battery life, isn't it. Yes, its a serious issue, if you have a old phone with less battery capacity.

Now here comes Toggle Track, which helps you save battery life by notifying the user if GPS or WiFi scanning of left on. And best part is it does it right. It has clean interface being in its initial stages. It has cool additions like, Pie Charts for duration of ON and number of times GPS/WiFi scanning was ON. Although there's room for improvement. It does the job, and never misses.

Google X?Is It Really the special one from google?

What is Google X?Do we other phone by google than the current nexus series?

 As we know nexus is a blend of both google itself and the OEMs.But wait doesnt this mean its not by google only.Well thats the disadvantage.In the late december wall street journal reported a google device named X phone to be coming up lately.
The X phone is the phone that most iphone fan boys are awaiting for,the phone that may make people leave Apple. Since acquiring Motorola Mobility,Google might be planning a X phone with its own hardware and of coarse its own AIR updates.
Meanwhile ,in a recent earnings call this week ,Google's CEO Larry Page outlined a range of features he'd like to see in the upcoming google phones.He says "Battery life is a huge issue.You shouldn't have to worry about constantly recharging your phone. When you drop your phone, it shouldn't go splat. Everything should be a ton faster and easier. There’s real potential to invent new and better experiences",as reported by The Verge.
These words from Larry Page gives a slight belief for this rumored device.While recently it is estimated that Apple and iphones rule 51% of US market,Android still rules the worldwide market share.
