  • Send iMessages to Your Menu Bar with Unreplied

    iMessage

     

    To say that your phone is the most important thing you own is probably an understatement. Our smartphones connect us to friends and family around the world, give us instant access to our most treasured social media feeds, and even assist us with our personal finance. You know what all three of those tasks have in common, by the way? Push notifications. That’s right, your phone is being constantly altered throughout the day, meaning that sometimes it gets a bit difficult to reply to every message and swipe away every alert.

     

    We live in the age of the push notification. So, why not download an app that can help you manage it all? That’s where Unreplied comes in. It’s the app that can help you manage your unread messages and help you reduce your time spent glued to your screen. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

     

    What Is Unreplied?

     

    If you’re looking for a way to keep your messages in check, maybe you’re simply popular or you're a forgetful responder, Unreplied can help you out. Unreplied is the only app available that helps you out by showing your missed iMessage and SMS conversations. Unreplied essentially sits in your Mac’s Menu bar and bundles your iMessage and SMS chats in just one place - that way, you don’t miss another important text. Ever.

     

    Unreplied states that it’s easy for us to overlook a message when we’re busy at work or distracted with other things going on. Thus, when installing the application, the app recommends that you opt for the iMessage alert icon to your Menu bar. With this icon in your menu bar, it’ll show you the unanswered text messages you have in your inbox. It’ll alert you by displaying either a black or red digit above the icon.

     

    Features

     

    You’re aware of the iMessage alert that comes with Unreplied, however, the app also comes with other features to show you unread messages. In addition to the iMessage alert icon, it also comes with a drop down menu which lists your unread conversations in chronological order. It even shows you a small snippet of what is contained in the message and the date and time. You simply tap the message you’d like to open up and it’ll open up iMessage where you can respond.

     

    Unreplied also allows you the ability to customize the app, ensuring that it fits your needs. You can decide whether or not you’d like to hide messages after a certain amount of days, how much of the message you’d like to be shown, when Unreplied should scan for messages and whether or not you’d like the number of unread messages to show in the icon bar. Unreplied allows you full control over what you’d like to see, how much you’d like to see and when you’d like to see it.

     

    Is It Secure?

     

    When it comes to apps accessing your personal information, most people ask themselves the question, “is this app secure?” This is an important question to ask before you allow any app to access your phone. With Unreplied is a secured app. Unreplied uses ‘macOS sandbox’ to keep your conversations inaccessible and safe. What macOS sandbox does is block network and file system access, so, even if Unreplied was hacked, it wouldn’t be able to share your data due to macOS sandbox.

     

    The only downside to Unreplied is the limitation to iMessage — meaning that if you’re looking for an app to show you all your unanswered messages across a variety of platforms such as Facebook Messenger, Email, Whatsapp, and Viber — you’d best be served by some other solution. That being said, however, Unreplied is the only service that works with iMessage, meaning that it’s a must-have for Mac users in 2017. We can only hope that in time they’ll expand their services to other communication platforms, making our lives even easier. Download it today!

  • Airmail for iOS: Meet the Email App Which Can Do Everything

    Airmail

     

    Still using Apple Mail on your iOS device? There’s a better way to do email, and it’s called “Airmail”. While a bevy of alternative iOS email apps have been available ever since Apple allowed third party email apps way back in 2011, the fact of the matter is that none of them come close to offering the simplicity and flexibility of Airmail — more on that later.

     

    Some of you might recognize the name Airmail from the award-winning OS X app which has been around for the better part of half a decade now. If so, then you’re spot on with your guess: Airmail for iOS is a mobile-optimized version of the very same app you might currently be using to handle your inbox on your desktop or laptop computer right now!

     

    Far from just a simple port of the desktop version, Airmail for iOS simply packs more options than just about any other mail app on the iOS App Store right now. Period. While it’s a bit pricier than some of its competitors at $4.99, we believe that this app more than pays for itself by allowing you to be more productive, reactive, and more communicative.

     

    Let's get down to the features, shall we? Airmail supports Gmail, Exchange, IMAP, and POP3. It also includes push notifications, Apple Watch integration, threaded and single message support, email 'snoozing', iCloud Sync with your Mac's Airmail client, Drafts, multiple signatures, a Unified Inbox, Aliases, 3D Touch, Google Drive & Dropbox integration, and so much more. We mean that last bit, too. There’s so many other features that it’s almost impossible to speak to each and every one of them — which is why we recommend that you head on over to Airmail’s website directly and check out all of the features that each version has brought to the app over time.

     

    Going back to specifics, we believe that the Gmail integration is probably the best that we’ve ever seen outside of Google’s own iOS Gmail app. We’ve never experienced any issues regarding syncing or importing settings from Gmail into the app itself.

     

    The other big thing to note is the inclusion of threaded message support. Gone are the days where you’ll have to search throughout your inbox for the 14 different messages which you might’ve sent someone during a given day. Instead, your messages are grouped together so that you can find all messages sent to a particular contact on the same day. Neat, huh?

     

    Now that we’ve covered most of the ‘under-the-hood’ features, let’s move on to the meat and potatoes of the app: design. Users who have been accustomed to using Apple Mail will delight in the fact that the design feels much more modern than the barely-been-touched-since-iOS-7 design which Apple’s default mail client has. Also important to mention is the fact that the app itself uses a series of left and right swipes in order to allow the user to accomplish certain tasks with a given message. For example, if you left just a little bit and let go, you can trash your message. On the other hand, if you swipe completely to the left, you can move it to an action list for later parsing. Conversely, if a short swipe right will let you archive a message, while a long swipe lets you ‘snooze’ it. Speaking of snoozing, it seems to be a unique feature of Airmail — as far as we can tell. Snoozing lets you temporarily archive a message and have it come back into your inbox after a pre-determined time period, a feature that’s quite useful for those of us who find ourselves having to deal with a larger-than-normal amount of email volume during a given day.

     

    Airmail for iOS is currently available for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. If you’d like to find out more then head on over to the website here. Where you can read more about the app as well as new features which will be coming soon over the coming months.

  • Best Keyboard for Android

    Gboard

     

    Still using your stock Android OS keyboard? That’s a bad look. With hundreds of keyboard choices available to you, you should try downloading some new virtual keyboards in order to see if there are some which’ll suit your needs. Whether you’d like a larger or smaller keyboard, one with gesture controls or predictive text, there’s going to be an option available to you. Luckily for you, however, you won’t have to sift through all of them in order to find the best ones. We did the homework for you and found the best keyboards for a variety of your needs. So sit back and relax, here are the best keyboards for your Android phone.

     

    For Overall Functionality

     

    If you’re not looking for something overly specific, then we highly suggest the Gboard designed by Google. Originally, this was created for the iPhone, however, they made a version for Android not too long after - we’re happy they did! The Google Keyboard is fully updated with incredible features which include Google translate, integrated web search, and GIF search. Basically, it comes with every you need to write a message. Whether you prefer gesture typing for individual words or sentences, Gboard support either option as well as an endless amount of languages. The predictive text doesn’t always the word right, but it’s really not that bad. Over time, it learns the words that you most commonly use and adapts to your data.

     

    If you’re unable to write a message, for whatever reason, you can also use the speech-to-text engine that works with voice dictation. Sure, it won’t be able to get every word, but it does a pretty good job if you speak clearly and at a decent pace.  Ideally, if you’re looking for a keyboard that can do a little bit of everything, then Gboard is a great option. In addition, you also can turn on “Google search” which allows you to search up anything quickly. Most importantly, it’s completely free for Android users.

     

    For Gesture Texting

     

    Gesture typing, also known as swipe typing, allows you to type with one hand. Essentially, gesture typing allows you to slide your fingers around the keyboard to write out a complete word. If you’re looking for a keyboard that’s well built for gesturing typing then you should try Swype. It’s a highly favored keyboard for Android phones and allows you to swipe out a word or entire sentences. It also supports two languages for bilingual users. Swype gives users a free trial version, however, you can also purchase the full version for one dollar.

     

    Swype comes with features such as TalkBack and Explore By Touch - these two features are designed to assist the vision-impaired and allows them to use the keyboard with ease. You’re also given features such as copy and paste. Swipe-based typing is a great way to reduce texting time and get what you want to say out there as quickly as possible.

     

    For Word Predictions

     

    If you’re fixated on word predictions then you should opt for Swiftkey. In comparison to Gboard, it ranks higher than it in word predictions. It usually comes pre-installed on many Android phones and tablets. So, if you’re constantly messaging people, for example, you’re an editor, then Swiftkey is very useful for you. Though, it doesn’t have the special features which Gboard has, if you’re only in need of a keyboard, then you’ll love Swiftkey.

     

    It used to be a paid app, however, in 2014, they made the keyboard free while charged users for having different themes. So, you can use it for free, simply if you want a special theme, you pay. These themes add more individuality to your keyboard, so if that’s important to you, you can customize it.  It’s still one of the favored keyboard apps on the market today and is a great alternative to Gboard.

     

    Now that you know what the keyboards for Androids are, try them out. They all offer free versions, so give them all a try and see which one suits you the best. These keyboards are all made to make your life a little easier and help you reduce the amount of time that you’re on your phone.

  • How and When to Clear Android App Cache or Data

    Clear Cache

     

    Is your phone acting up on you? If your Android device is a bit long in the tooth, sometimes you’ll notice it starting to lag, crash, or open apps that you didn’t mean to open — y’know, typical Android problems. Now this isn’t because your phone has a virus or needs to be replaced, It could be that you just have too much information on it, unnecessary information.  So, if you’re noticing your apps are sluggish, that’s when you know it’s time to clean up the cached data. How do you do that? Good question! Let’s get started by showing you how it’s done, shall we?

     

    Clearing Your App Cache

     

    When you start to use an application, you may not notice but they’ll start to store files in your app for reference. They’ll save files that could be images or text that you’ve already read so that they don’t have to re-download this information again. Basically, this is meant to save time when you open your app. This information is stored in an app’s cache file. You don’t have to do this weekly, you can allow some time to pass before you do it again. Remember, each time you do this, it’s removing your stored data, so it’ll have to download this information again when your app needs to reference this information. For example, if you remove Google Maps caches data, the addresses you’ve search previously will all be deleted. So, you’ll have to re-enter this information into Google Maps again.

     

    Nevertheless, in order to do this, it’s quite easy and you’ll be able to gain some space that was being used by cached data.

     

    Go into Settings on your Android, once in Settings, scroll down until you find Apps. Tap on Apps. You’ll notice that it’ll show you every single app you have on your Android. Now, you can tap on an app of your choice, where it’ll bring you to a screen which provides you information on that specific app. Now, it varies for each Android, however, for many, if you tap on storage, it’ll take you to another screen where you’ll see cache. Underneath of cache, you’ll see Clear Cache, tap on it. Then, you’ll have clear the cached data from the app. You can go back, click on another app and follow the same procedure.

     

    Clearing App Data or Resetting an App

     

    Now clearing app data is more intense than just clearing cache. By doing this, you’re also clearing any settings that have been made with that app. Essentially, you’re choosing to start all over again, as if you just downloaded this app - it’ll be brand new. You do this as the last restore. Perhaps after clearing cache, your phone is still lagging, if so, then you should do this.

     

    In order to do this, you’re going to go into settings. Once in settings, scroll down until you find Apps. Tap on Apps.  It’s essentially the same way you’d access cache. Again, you’ll notice that it’ll show you every single app you have on your Android. Now, you can tap on an app of your choice, where it’ll bring you to a screen which provides you information on that specific app. Now, it varies for each Android, however, for many, if you tap on storage, once in storage, you’ll see the option clear data. Tap on clear data. It’ll clear all your apps data.

     

    Now, you need to open the app and sign in and/or proceed with essentially reinstalling it since you won’t have any old data on it. Once you have the app up and running, see if the problems you had with it are fixed. Whether it fixes the problem or not, you should contact the developer of the app and alert them of what your problem is. They’ll be happy to hear this information for when they’re making upgrades to the app. Plus, they may be able to give you suggestions on what went wrong and what can be done.

     

    Remember, clear your cache data when you feel your phone is acting weird and/or sluggish. If your app is really bugging out, then clear its data and start from scratch. If none of these work, contact the developer.

  • Get a 3D Stereo Sound Effect on Any Android Device

    3D

     

    Want even more loudness coming out of your Android device’s speakers? You’re not the only one. Unfortunately, even mega-corporations like Samsung and LG still haven’t realized that what we all really want is a smartphone that’s capable of getting us to groove in just the tap of an onscreen button.

     

    Yes, we’ve been cursed with almost one-dimensional sound, but no longer. You now have the opportunity to play your favorite tunes (or podcasts!) back with 3D sound. More on this below:

     

    Ever hear of Goetrek’s AM3D? It’s a piece of software that can provide you with the highest-quality of audio processing available on the market right now. You know that this product is legit when it’s being used in the sound industry by audio recording professionals! What’s more, what they offer in comparison to their competitors is something called virtual surround sound, a highly innovative piece of software that can make a two speaker setup sound like a complete 5.1 home theatre experience. Pretty crazy, right?

     

    Previously, you wouldn’t be able to take advantage of this tech on a smartphone unless you owned a  Sharp AQUOS smartphone which came pre-loaded with AM3D’s Zirene software. These days, however, you’re able to install these feature onto any Android phone. To make the installation process easy and quick, you want to make sure you have Magisk installed into your smartphone. Magisk will work with ViPER4Android, Dolby Atmos and other audio mods - so, basically, you’ll be able to do get started once you have Magisk on your smartphone.

     

    Let’s get started in showing you how it’s done.

    1. What you’re going to want to do first is install the module. You’re going to enter your installed app, Magisk and go into the download Search for AM3D Zirene and tap on the download icon when it shows up. Then, click install, it’ll take a few seconds to process. Another screen will pop up asking you to reboot, tap reboot.

    2. Your Android will reboot itself and you’ll then want to open to AM3D Zirene Sound app. Once opened, you’re going to ensure that the main service is enabled. To check, on the top right-hand section of the screen, you’ll see an on/off icon. Make sure that the icon says “on”. Once that’s complete, you’ll be able to adjust the bass and treble levels using the dials at the bottom of the screen.

    3. Beside the on/off icon, you’ll see a phone-shaped icon, this will be on the top right-hand corner of the screen. Tap on this icon. Once you do, you’ll be shown another screen where you’ll be able to select the output device that’ll have customized audio profiles for each. So, if you’re using headphones, Bluetooth or speaker, you’ll be able to have customized options for each.

    4. Select the “JBL J46BT” option for headphones.

    5. Now that you selected the JBL J46BT option, you can customize the effects. On your screen, you’ll see a variety of arrows, bass, treble, etc. You can choose the type of music playing to give the audio a specific sound. To make sure that your effects are enabled, the effects you’d like to apply must be highlighted green.

    6. Now, this step is optional, however, if you’d like, you can enable the equalizer. If you’re using a different equalizer app, then there’s no need. However, it’s good to know that you can enable this feature with AM3D Zirene Sound. So, in order to do so, you’ll want to turn on the toggle that’s located on the top right-hand side of the main menu. It’s underneath the on/off icon. Once you hit the toggle, select either a preset or you can select user and then customize it yourself. Whatever changes you do will take effect immediately, so, test out the effects by playing some music.

     

    You’ll notice how dramatic the changes are to your sound once you play around with the effects. Don’t be afraid to test out different options and to customize your sound. If you don’t like it, you can always cancel the effect. So, what are you waiting for? Download the app as soon as possible and get started. You’ll never go back to your normal audio every again.

  • How Many Times Will My Power Bank Charge My Device

    Powerbank

     

    Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to charge your device anywhere you go? Well, thanks to today’s modern technology, you can actually do just that. It’s called a power bank. Basically, a power bank is a mobile charger that you charge your device on the go — and all you need to do is charge your power bank in advance in order to do so. Once you’re all charged up and ready to go, you can slip your power bank into your bag and charge essentially any device including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. All of that charging goodness without needing a wall outlet! Talk about freedom!

     

    Whether or not you currently own a powerbank, it’s important to know how many times you can charge your devices on a single charge. You might think that it’s straightforward, but it’s just a teeny bit more complicated than what you’d expect. More on that below.

     

    Typically, if you want to figure out how many times your power bank will charge your device, you’re going to have to use some math. To do this, the easiest way is to divide the mAh of your power bank by the mAh that your device’s battery is rated at. An example of how this would look is the following:

     

    mAh of power bank / mAh of device battery = a number of times your power bank can charge your phone

     

    By this logic, if you have a 5000mAh power bank and you’d want to to fully charge an iPhone 6, you’ll be able to do so 2.7 times. The iPhone’s battery capacity is 1810 mAh, thus, as you can see, this is what the equation looks like (5000/1810 = 2.7).

     

    You should know, though that these calculations are never 100% accurate, so please take into consideration the fact that your power bank will naturally degrade over time.

     

    Can You Use the Power Bank While Using Your Device?

     

    Of course you can. People usually end up using their power bank when they need their device functioning. Thus, you’ll see many people with their device’s attached to their power bank while they’re online, taking a call or watching a movie. However, there is a difference between a device that’s plugged into a power bank without being used and a power bank that’s used to charge a device that’s currently being used. In all honesty, the difference is huge.

     

    If you’re using your device while it’s being plugged into a power bank, though it’ll charge your device, it’ll also drain more power from it. This is why if you’ve done this before, you probably noticed that your device wasn’t really charged at all. This is simply because it’s using the power faster than it would if your device wasn’t being used.

     

    Whereas, if you leave your device alone or in airplane mode while it’s being charged with your power bank, you’ll be able to receive a full charge since your device isn’t using up much battery power.

     

    Will the Power Bank Always Be Able to Give Me a Full Charge

     

    Here’s the thing about the power bank. The more charging cycles your power bank undergoes, the more degradation said battery will experience. Ideally, what will happen is that after approx. 300 charging cycles, your power banks capacity will reduce to 80%.  For example, if you’re using a 5000mAh power bank, it’ll be reduced to 4000mAh capacity. Though, this also varies depending on the temperature of the power bank.

     

    Now, if you’re experiencing that your power bank isn’t working properly, it could be for a couple reasons. If your power bank appears to be completely dead and non-functioning, it could very well be that your power bank is completely drained. You’ll be able to tell this when you plug it into a power source and a light blinks. If this is the case, it simply needs to be charged.

     

    Another factor could be that it went into sleep mode. Your power bank will completely cut-off power and go into sleep mode when it detects an over/under charge. This could be due to a faulty cable, so please check it to make sure there’s no damage. To solve this, simply plug it into a power source.

     

    Now that you know everything about your power bank and how it’ll be able to charge your device over time, you’ll be able to make proper calculations in order to tell the amount of charges you can reasonably expect to get out of your power bank. Happy charging!

  • How Do You Transfer Data from One iPhone to Another?

    iphone

     

    Buying a new iOS device to replace an aging model? Congrats, you’re one of the millions around the word who’ve decide to upgrade to a new model! Now, if you *do* have a new iPhone or iOS device, you’re going to want to transfer your personal data from your old iPhone to your new one. If you thought it wasn’t possible or that it’s too complicated, well, you’ll be happy to know how easy it is. Let’s get down to brass tax, shall we?

     

    Things to Do Before You Transfer Your Data

     

    Before you even start the process of transferring your data, there are a couple things you’re going to have to do. These steps will ensure that your data is saved and secure, making the transfer as simple as possible:

     

    • If you have an Apple Watch connected to your old iPhone, you’re going to have to unpair your Apple Watch from your old iPhone. Unpairing your Apple Watch will automatically backup your Apple Watch so that you’ll be able to restore it when you pair it with your new iPhone. Of course, all your personal data will be transferred effortlessly.

    • Make sure all your data is backed. This is usually automatic with your iPhone since it’s connected to iCloud. We’ll show you how to do this later on.

    • If you’re selling your old iPhone, make sure you’re logged off of all your accounts and that your data is erased.

     

    How to Transfer Your Data from Your Old iPhone Using iCloud

     

    Before you transfer your data, you’re going to have to backup your data. This means all your information from your old iPhone will be sent to your new one.

     

    To backup your information on iCloud, you’re going to have to connect your iPhone to the internet via Wi-Fi. One that’s done, you’ll be able to start the transferring process. Go to settings, click on your name and tap on iCloud. Once you’re in that section, tap on iCloud Backup. If you’re using iOS 10.2 or earlier, you’ll tap on settings, then iCloud and then Backup.

     

    Check that iCloud Backup is turned on. Then, tap on Back Up Now. It’ll start the transferring process, so you’ll want to make sure that you remain connected to Wi-Fi until the process is completed.

     

    Transferring Your iCloud Backup Data to Your New Device

     

    With your new iPhone, you’re going to turn on the device. If you’ve already set up the phone, you’ll have to erase your data and start over again. To do this, go into settings > general > reset > Erase All Content and Settings. This will erase all the data that’s currently on the device. If you did it correctly, you’ll want to see “Hello” appear on your screen when you restart it.

     

    Press the Home button when you see the “Hello” appear on your screen. Follow the steps shown until you reach the Wi-Fi screen. Once you get to the Wi-Fi screen, connect to a Wi-Fi network. After that, you’re going to follow the steps until you see Apps & Data screen. Once there, tap on restore from iCloud Backup and then hit next.

     

    You’re then going to have to sign-in to your iCloud account, using your Apple ID and password. You’ll be asked to choose a backup. Make sure you choose the correct one by looking at the size and date.

     

    Stay connected to Wi-Fi until it completes the process. Once finished all your personal data such as music, photos and apps will be transferred to your new iPhone.

     

    How to Transfer Your Data from Your Old iPhone Using iTunes

     

    Connect your old iPhone to your computer then open iTunes on your desktop, selecting your device. Under summary, click on back up now. Then the back up process will begin, this may take a while depending on the size.

    Connect your new device to your computer and open your iTunes, selecting your device. Then, click on Restore Back up. Choose a backup, make sure you pick the right one by looking at the size and date. Then, the process will start, make sure your new phone remains plugged into the computer until it’s finished. This may take a while depending on the size of your data.

    Once you open up your iTunes on your iPhone and you’ll see all your data transferred. It’s really just that simple!

  • How to Add More Storage to an iPhone or iPad

    iphone wifi

     

    If you have an iPhone, then you know the trouble you have with storage. Apple’s iPhones sadly have fixed storage, so if you’re needing more space, you’re out of luck. However, you may be able to do this easy trick to allow your iPhone to have a little more storage space.

     

    If you’re needing some space, we recommend you delete your Facebook app. Don’t worry, you can still access it through Chrome. You should know that the Facebook app alone takes up between 500-600MB. You’ll thank us after you do it, especially when you see your battery life drastically increase. But if you’re needing more space, you’re going to have to do more than just delete your Facebook app. Here are some tricks you can do. Though they’re not ideal, these are the best options available for you at this time.

     

     External Storage Anyone?

     

    You probably didn’t think of this as most people only think of external storage when it comes to their computers or cameras. However, external storage can give you unlimited space for your photos, music, documents, and movies. You have two options for external storage: plug-in storage (aka. Flash drive) or wireless media hubs.

     

    Though you’ll have to make sure it’s phone-friendly, a flash drives can really change how your phone functions, for the better, that is.  For example, SanDisk’s IXpand line will provide you between 32GB to 256GB of external memory. It has a lightning connector at one end and USB 3.0 on the other. The wrap around design also reduces bulk so that it’s not sticking out of your phone.

     

    Another option is something like Leef IAccess which has no onboard storage, instead, it holds microSD cards which you can alternate between your camera or phone. However, you should know that drives such as this one are not connected full-time. Meaning, you access them when you need it.

    However, regardless of which drive you decide to use, you’ll be able to store your music, videos and data, thus, relieving your device, allowing it to hold apps and other information.

     

    In order to use a plug-in device, you’ll need to follow these three easy steps:

    Wireless Options for External Storage

     

    Now, if you’re not interested in having a flash drive sticking out of your phone, we don’t blame you. Instead, if you want, you can also take the wireless route, also known as a media hub. They usually come in various sizes and capacities, so, you’ll need to choose one which suits your needs. Though, regardless of the size, you need to ensure that you choose one with a pass-through option. The pass-through feature allows your device to stay connected to a Wifi network while you’re connected to the drive. This will decrease the time you need to disconnect and reconnect.

     

    Still Not Enough?

     

    If this still isn’t enough space for you, then you should consider purchasing a wireless hard drive. The wireless hard drive works similar to the media hub, however, it’s large in both size and price. So, it’s not as convenient if you’re looking for something portable.

     

    However, if you need more space, you can opt for something a little more portable such as Seagate Wireless Mobile Storage drive. It will offer you 20 hours of battery life and is pocket-friendly. Of course, it’s pricier than an SD card or flash drive, however, if you’re in need of more memory, you’ll have to pay more, it’s that simple.

     

    Of course, we’re hoping that with the new iDevices, they’ll create expansion slots. However, until then, then, you’ll have to use external storage to deal with your memory storage issues. If you’re in a bind when it comes to finding space on your device, remember, you can always delete your Facebook app!
