Selfies are ubiquitous these days, and with all the social media that we use, everybody has at least one self portrait posted on the web. But whilst you might think of selfies as a teen thing, the truth is there might be times when you need a decent self shot. Maybe you need a pic for your CV, maybe your Facebook page, maybe you just want a nice picture of yourself and there’s no one else around to take it. So we’re here to tell you how to take the perfect selfie, whatever the reason you need one…
Whether it’s a crazy ex or an annoying telemarketer, we all get calls that we don’t want from time to time. Of course, you can just ignore them and hope they go away and stop calling, but if you want to really deal with the problem, you’ll need to block the call completely. As a lucky Android owner, there are a few ways that you can go about doing this, and that’s what we’re here to take a look at today. No more irritating calls? Yes, please!
Security is always a big concern with personal data, and with the amount of data we’re keeping on our smart phones this concern is growing. Of course, you don’t want someone logging into your Facebook and posting embarrassing messages, or reading your personal emails. But there’s more to it than that. Many of us have mobile banking, or accounts such as Amazon that contain our credit card information and can allow people to spend our cash. And there’s even the threat of identity fraud. Whilst many of us won’t be at huge risk, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Fortunately, many major banking services, apps, and even email softwares are introducing two factor authentication in an effort to keep your data even safer. So what is this, do you need it, how do you use it? That’s what we’re here to find out.
If you’ve got an iPhone then you’ve got access to Apple’s free iCloud backup service. But unlike other free cloud services, Apple offer only 5 GB of free storage (after which you’ll be paying a pretty penny for more space for your stuff).

Having a smart phone is pretty awesome, but without an internet connection, that smart phone just becomes, well, a dumb phone. Mobile internet is more than a convenience for many of us, it’s a necessity. But if you want to save on those expensive mobile data bills, then you’re going to want to switch to WiFi whenever possible. What happens when your mobile WiFi isn’t working though? That’s what we’re here to find out. If you’re having WiFi problems with your phone, then here’s how you can fix them.
Mobile security should be a priority for everyone. For those of us with mobile banking, security is a no brainer, but even email accounts, social media and shopping accounts should be secure. And that’s not to mention the apps that you might want to keep away from your kids, or maybe even your spouse or nosey friends. There are thousands of security apps on the market, but if you’re searching around then you’ll find that a lot of these are anti virus apps. Those are great for some people, but aren’t exactly what we’re looking at today. We’re looking at those apps that can help give you privacy, security, and even the comfort of knowing that your kids won’t be able to send an email from your account.
