Samsung adds its own WiFi file transfer app to the Play Store

samsung Wi-Fi Transfer

Samsung released their own WiFi transfer app cleverly named, “Wi-Fi Transfer”. The app will allow users to transfer files from one device to another, or to a computer.

Unfortunately, it is only available to Samsung phones, but there are plenty of alternative apps to pick from in the Play Store if you have another brand of device. However, what is nice about this app is you do not need an internet connection for it to work, all you need is a WiFi network. What is even better is you do not need to use a router or be connected on a large WiFi network either. Just turn on WiFi sharing on one device and have the other connect to it. Send all the files you want after that. Doesn’t get much simpler than that.

BlackBerry adds new ‘Virtual Expert’ app to the Play Store

BlackBerry_Virtual_expert_app_iconBlackBerry Virtual Expert is a new app available on the Play Store for BlackBerry Priv owners. The purpose of the app is to perform a diagnostic test of a variety of functions to make sure all parts are working properly.

The BlackBerry Virtual Expert will perform a scan that tests parts such as the camera, display, keyboard, touchscreen, speakers, microphones, and a variety of other sensors. At the conclusion of the test, the app will provide you with feedback that highlights any parts that aren’t properly functioning. If something fails, BlackBerry will supply you with details on how to contact your carrier’s customer care center so that you can get that part checked out.

With this app, BlackBerry has made it easier for people to diagnose their Priv unit if it has any sort of issue. BlackBerry says that the app should be able to find what’s wrong with your particular Priv unit in a timely manner. Let’s hope that BlackBerry brings this app to more Android devices in the near future.

Sprint adds more countries and destinations to Open World and Global Roaming programs

sprint-store-338

Sprint announced today that it has added support for 36 new countries and destinations to its Open World and Global Roaming programs. With these new additions, Sprint now offers its international services at 110 destinations.

These countries include Austria, Luxembourg, Afghanistan, Macau, Bangladesh, Macedonia, Belarus, Malaysia and Belgium. The Republic of Malta, Bolivia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Netherlands, and Cambodia are also included in the additions.

There’s also support for Norway, Croatia, Philippines, Estonia, Poland, Finland, Rwanda, Ghana, Serbia, Hong Kong and Singapore. Those traveling to Hungary, Slovenia, Iceland, South Africa, Indonesia, Taiwan, Kenya, Thailand, Liechtenstein or Turkey will be happy to find out these countries are included as well.

It might be a mouthful, but Sprint’s Open World and Global Roaming programs are aimed to offer some serious savings for the carrier’s customers that plan on traveling abroad. The Open World program provides 1GB of free data, as well as free calling and texting, in Mexico, Canada and countries across Latin America.

The program also offers some discounted rates in other nations.

In contrast, the Global Roaming program allows customers to have unlimited data–up to 2G in speed–unlimited texting and calls at a rate of $ 0.20 per minute in supported countries.

Sprint’s new international offerings seem to have been a roaring success as far as savings goes. Unfortunately, it’s not the best package considering that the 2G connection speeds don’t keep up with the demands consumers put on their smartphones.

The carrier is looking to help consumers save money in other ways by ending two-year contracts as well.

On the upside, it’s a convenient package, allowing those travelling abroad to stay in touch with family, friends, colleagues and business partners on the cheap. Hopefully we’ll see Sprint and other companies add more value to programs like this in the future.
