Google tools you should be using


Last time I wrote on how to download free apps from Google Play with PC don't miss that tip.
Today I'll be writing on Google tools that also awesome as the popularly used ones.
These Google tools/features include:
1. Google Drive

This is one of the top free cloud storage available(though it's not entirely free). This cloud service has been available for sometime now but only few people use it( you particularly don't use it) probably because of other numerous free cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Yandex, Skydrive, Ucloud(read this to know more about Ucloud) or maybe be it's too hard to use. But despite all Google offers all it's free cloud storage users a total of 15G free space to store any kind file incuding pictures, word documents, mp3 files or any file type you can think of.
It works on both PC and smartphones including Android.
In order to use Google Drive's free 15G of online storage space go to www.drive.google.com register and start storing your files online on Google's server.
2.Google Translate

With Google Translate you can translate any website of your choice(including Google) to almost any language including your local language some times I translate LegiStuffs to Igbo(my native language) and it works perfectly fine. But it some worth surprising that many don't utilize some of these internet tools to make the internet easier and fun. Google Translate works for every website so you can translate a french, spanish, arabic, polish website to English.

Now its; How to use Google translate
In order to use Google translate just go to www.translate.google.com, in the page there there will be a space to type in the url/address of the site you intend to translate. But before that, on top the space provided is the option to change the language you want Google to translate the from and to, in default it's set at 'detect language'(which is best) and translate to English. This means Google detects the original language of the site and translate it to English but if you want it to be translated to any other language not English, you click on the word 'English' and options of various language will be provided, you then select the language of your choice. After selecting the language of your choice, you then type in the address of the site and click non the word 'Translate'. that's all.
3. Google currency converter

As you can see these Google tools cut across different aspect of life because different people use the internet for different purposes. Now with this feature you can tell Google to help you convert any currency of your choice to also any currency of your choice.
Most times when looking for the latest conversion rates different websites give many lists you actually don't need, so with Google you get the direct conversion rates between different currencies of your choice.
how to use Google to convert currencies
this is how I do it; for example if I want to know what one naira is in dollar or the reverse I type 'one naira in dollar' on the Google search box, and Google will give me the exact rate, you type it without the quotes('') and Google will give you the answer you need.
4.Google wallet

Google wallet is the last on my list of the not so popular Google tools which I believe you should be using. But the truth is I don't use Google wallet not because am not interested but because it has not expand as it should and many online stores don't accept it yet. Maybe if am to register and start using it, it'll only be for the sake of Playstore.
But for those who use e-stores that accept Google wallet its a great thing to use it and one won't be much afraid that the company will just vanish into thin air like Liberty Reserve. So Google wallet has come to stay and using it for your online purchase is a great idea.
in order to use Google wallet go to www.wallet.google.com and set up your account.
with this list you can see there are so many Google tools or Google features you're probably missing. Trying out some of them wont be a crime.

Imagine you stumbled on an interesting book, newspaper or anyother written work but you couldn't read it because it was/is written in a foreign language, how frustrating it could be! When stuck in such kind of situation, that's when this come to your mind; 'HOW TO TRANSLATE A FOREIGN LANGUAGE WITH YOUR ANDROID' So have you ever wondered if it's possible to translate with an android device?, It might sound a bit impossible but with technology nothing is impossible and today I'll prove it in this aspect. I'll be introducing you to a free app that will do that perfectly well with no hassle. Yea it's a free app!

This free app am talking about is Word Lens Translator, it'll automatically translate a foreign text to your preferred language(lets say english) with the help of your device' camera once you hover your android device(phone or tablet) over the text written in the foreign language, Unlike so many other apps Word Lens Translator doesn't require any internet connection to do this, so its just download, install and use. You can get it here from the Google playstore, After downloading and installing Word Lens Translator on your device, open it, it will introduce you to its features and also tips to help you know what to expect from it. I'll advice you follow all it tells you for the best result.

When done with the above you'll be taken to the app itself and it will start capturing video and during this process it'll ask you if its good, be sure the video its showing is clear and its not rotated, if its ok, you press 'Looks Good' and if its not ok you press 'Needs Rotation'.

After that, it will ask you to select your preferred language that you want it to translate from and to. that is, if you're having a text written in spanish and you want to read it in english you select spanish to english and same with the reverse.
If you followed all the above, you're now set to use Word Lens Translator in translating from a foreign language to your preferred. Just hover your phone/tablet over a text written in the language you seleted above and watch it do the magic for you. During this process/stage, if you encounter anything like poor translation performance, try keeping the camera steady and fixed and/or try using your device in a landscape mode (or portrait if it was already in landscape). If you still encounter a little problem tap the zoom symbol(that's the magnifying glass button) and you'll get a more acurate translation. NOTE: This app works perfectly well with large text in standard fonts. Some other awesome features of the app
-Apart from the use of the camera in translating, you can aswell make use of the app's dictionary to quickly translate any word by tapping the notebook option. And lots more. Thats all you need to start translating texts from a foreign language to your preferred. Now that you've gotten the information and tip you need, start translating now!

how to hide files and folders on your android


Definitely many of us want to hide some files and or folders in devices from people.
For sometime now I've been wanting to share this but have not been able to, but today its available.
Like I said in my first sentence, many of us want to know how to hide files maybe photos, videos, docs or folders from some people who will just pick up your android phone or tablet and all they'll do is go straight maybe to the gallery app and start swiping pictures(photos) and watching videos like the whole world depends on it. how annoying!
So now am bringing you a remedy for that, in the sense that when ever they pick up your device again they'll not see those pictures/photos, videos or other files you don't want them to see for what ever reason.
This would be made possible with the use of any of the various available file explores or managers such as your android's inbuilt file explore or ES file explorer or any other, but I'll be using ES file explorer for this because I rate it among the best if not the best go here for ES file explorer's functions.
now.....
assuming its whatsapp images you want to be hidden just like the photo at the beginning of this post, you go to your whatsapp folder its usually in your sdcard directory, just as in the same photo above, then you select/tick the folder(in that photo its media) once ticked/marked, there would be options like copy, cut, delete, rename and more at the bottom of your screen, you'll now have to select rename and there will be a pop up for you to type the name for the folder or file. This is now where the trick takes place.
Once the pop up comes up for you to type the name you want, all you do is put a full stop(.) at the beginning of the name, that is before the first letter of the name, for example if the name is legit photos you change it to .legit photos, once done adding the full stop(.) you tap ok.
After doing all the above you'll notice the file or folder will instantly disappear from your view, which means it has been hidden.
Go to your gallery app(assuming its a picture or video) you'll discover also that its not there as well.
That's it, the magic has been done your files are hidden no more unauthorized viewing.
but in a case when you want to reverse this, all you do is go back to your ES file explorer, press your menu key, you'll see a column drawn out from the left side of your screen. At the bottom right of the column is the settings option, click no it and a new window will open, on the window are file settings, security settings, tools settings and update settings. Under file settings the first option is display settings you click on it and it will open another window with options having boxes to be ticked, the first there is 'show hidden files' you'll have to tick on it. After that go back to the directory where that file or folder you hid is you'll notice it has appeared, now rename it like you did when trying to hide it, but in this part just remove the full stop(.) at the beginning and click ok, it will now reappear in your gallery app(or where ever), once done go back to the settings again and deselect that box labeled 'show hidden files'.
in case you want to download ES file explorer go here that's just all that is needed, don't forget to share your comment and also share this with your friends.
