السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

(hamd)  we have a few great threads on Mobile devices, but dedicated for each topic.

Please post Islamic Apps in appropriate threads Android - iPhone - Windows

This thread will be dedicated to NON ISLAMIC APPS but those which can be very beneficial to others. Please try not to post apps that are only beneficial to certain locals, for example, there is no need of posting a local Taxi app, if it cant be used by the rest of the Androind users around the world. However, some app will not work on certain handsets, but thats down to specs.

If possible please give a brief description of each app, so we can work out if we should download it or not.

I would also ask our iPhone and Windows users to start a thread on similar topics, otherwise I will have to dust my iPhone and start it my self, just kidding!

جزاك الله خيرا

PS

Androids have something called widgets, so many of these apps can be used as widgets too

- Light Sensor
Light sensor is applied to detect the light intensity of the environment, and then adjusts screen brightness and determines whether to turn off the keyboard light. Test the effect by putting your phone in dark place and retrieving it.

- Orientation Sensor
Orientation sensor is applied to detect direction status of the device, i.e. auto rotate screen when device is rotated horizontally. It can also be used as measure equipment like Spirit Level.

- Proximity Sensor

- Magnetic Field
Magnetic Field is used in many areas like metal detection and compass, which bring us lot convenience in our life.

- Pressure
Pressure is used to detect environmental pressure, thus to forecast weather and temperature.

Android Sensor Box only detects changes. It may not show the correct temperature, proximity, light and pressure values if no changes occur.

For better performances, sensors are usually used together. Check out the live demonstration inside the application! Any feedback the email address below is the best way to get in touch with us.
