Create & Run Macros To Automate Actions With Android Bot Maker

Create & Run Macros To Automate Actions With Android Bot Maker

June 06, 2013 at 08:10PM Android Bot Maker is an automation tool for users running a rooted Android 4.1+ device. It allows users to record several different gestures, screen taps, swipes, text input, and key presses, and run them on loop until the user stops it. It’s a fairly sophisticated app that lets you create several different lists of these actions, share your lists, and import or export them. The actions are added as a sequence of events, which can be considered a macro of a sort, and can be very useful to do repetitive tasks without having to go through performing the required actions yourself repeatedly. You can also create and save multiple lists of actions, and load any of them at any time when you want to run it. The best part? The app does it all for free, though it is ad-supported and offers no way to remove them in form of an in-app purchase or a paid variant.Launch Android Bot Maker and you’ll be able…

How and Why to Teach Your Kids to Code

How and Why to Teach Your Kids to Code

May 31, 2013 at 08:30PM Whether or not your child grows up to be the next Zuckerberg, programming is a highly useful skill for him or her to learn. It teaches vital problem-solving, creativity, and communication skills. Plus, it can be downright fun for you both. Here are some of the best tried-and-true apps for teaching kids of all ages how to code.There's No Time Like the PresentPerhaps there's no better group to teach coding to than children (cue in Whitney Houston song about children and our future). Kids absorb information and use new technologies like they're old hat. (Just ask any parent who's given an iPad to a diapered child or the dad who raised his kids on the command line.)It's hard to imagine the amazing apps and tools they'll develop when they're older if we get them started learning how to tinker now. But most importantly, when you introduce your child to programming, in the process he/she's not ju…

Web2Flickr uploads screenshots of every page you visit to Flickr

Web2Flickr uploads screenshots of every page you visit to Flickr

June 06, 2013 at 07:43PM I'm not entirely sure if Web2Flickr's functionality is a great idea or scary, probably both depending on how it is used. The idea behind the Google Chrome extension is simple: take a snapshot of every web page you visit and upload it instantly to Flick.The first question that may come to mind is why you would want to use such an extension. The only reason that comes to mind is for archiving purposes. Say you are currently research a topic of interest. You can use bookmarks, the browsing history or even tabs to keep a record of every website you visit.What may make this extension useful is that it handles everything automatically in the background and that it uploads the data to a third party source.The screenshots that you upload are private by default, at least that is how it was when I tested the extension on my Yahoo account. It is probably a good way to check before you start to use…

Increase the file limit of Firefox’s download panel

Increase the file limit of Firefox’s download panel

June 06, 2013 at 07:12PM Mozilla switched how downloads are displayed in the Firefox browser in a recently released version of it.. Instead of being displayed in a window on the screen, they are now highlighted by a download panel that is displayed in the browser's toolbar by default.You can click on the icon to display downloads, but that display is limited to the last three files that you have downloaded to your system. While you can click on show all downloads to open the download history and display all files you have downloaded, it is not really comfortable to do.It is not clear why Mozilla did not add a preference or at least an about:config entry so that users can change the file limit of three downloads to another value that they prefer.You can switch to the old download manager if you want or wait until Mozilla integrates the option to increase the number of downloads that are displayed in the panel in a future browser…
