Some Tips and Tricks

Without making any excuses, let me confide in you that my writing skills are very bad. Especially my grammar. When I started following Grammarly in Twitter, because of all those fun quotes they publish, I found out that they had a Chrome extension which can help me with my posts. At least the free version (I ain’t rich to keep paying for all these tools, you know) does the basic checks and points me that something is wrong and to some extent makes sure to fix the spelling mistakes. If you buy it, I guess it will do a lot more. But then I can fix some when I know where the problem is. So, in case if you are interested, you need to click here for the Grammarly site, click here for the Chrome extension to be added (and make sure to enable it too).

Here is an image of how it actually points out the mistakes in a post (i.e. if you use chrome to type your posts, as I usually do)

Here is another tip, which I found out just yesterday.

If you have an android smartphone (not sure from which version of android this is applicable though, because I have the Lollipop version) and it is locked and if you want to use the flashlight for immediate purposes, you don’t have to unlock your phone to do that (which is what I used to do). You can just write V on top of the screen and lo behold the flashlight is on. Similarly type O for camera. But for this to work without unlocking your phone, you should have enabled the Gestures options in your settings. Here is a screenshot of my phone’s settings. When I found it out yesterday, had fun playing with it.

Hope these tips help you too.
