Private Auto Sharing Problem on Google+

We have a very active and big Google+ page where we engage our users. Earlier we used to post there manually but recently we have started auto sharing because of less bandwidth and suddenly we noticed a huge decline in engagement. We were wondering what could be the probable reason when I suddenly found out all these posts are shared privately.

The problem is when you connect a Google+ page to our website for auto posting, Google+ automatically sets the circle as private and you keep wondering why on the earth every time you publish on your blog it gets shared privately.

Basically you can not do anything about this on the website, you might end up checking every feature on WordPress, all settings of your plug in but the problem actually lies in your Google+ page. So this is how you solve the problem

  1. Go to your Google+ page
  2. Go to settings
  3. Scroll down and click on Manage Apps & Activities
  4.  Click on Google Tab
  5. Click where Private is written and change that to Public
  6. Save

That’s all. Now whatever you publish on your blog, it will straight go to your G+ users, publicly 🙂

How To ‘EASILY and QUICKLY’ Take Screenshots With Samsung Galaxy S4 Or Any Other Similar Android Phone

how-to-take-screenshot-in-samsung-android-phone-galaxy-s4Hey there, this is a quick post on how to take screenshots with Samsung Galaxy S4 or any other similar kind of Android phone like S3 and S5.

In post title, I have put ‘EASILY and QUICKLY’ in uppercase, and there is a good reason for that. I recently shifted from iPhone to Android phone and it took me a while to figure out “How to easily and quickly take screenshots’.

In iPhone, it is damn simple, with just one gentle press of power button (or hold button) and home button we can take screenshots. But in Samsung, I tried pressing standby button (or power button) and home button together, but every time either home button gets pressed earlier or standby button.

Also, with thick protective cover on phone, taking screenshot become even more difficult. Then with lots of trial, I learnt the trick.

How To ‘EASILY and QUICKLY’ Take Screenshots With Samsung Galaxy S4 Or Any Other Similar Android Phone?

To take screenshot easily and quickly all you have to do is following steps –

  1. Open the screen that you want to capture.
  2. Press standby button and home button together.
  3. Then keep HOLDING both the buttons till you get your screenshot.

HOLDING for a while is the trick, which no one told me.

Probably, you already knew this trick but as a iPhone user, it took me a while to learn it, so I thought I should share with you just-in-case if you struggle.

There are other ways like swiping with gesture but I prefer this method over that.

How to fix ‘Unable to Update or Download Apps in iOS8’ Problem

iOS8 has many bugs and glitches. Some of them have been addressed by Apple with two quick fix updates of iOS 8.01 and 8.02. However, there are many bugs which are yet to be fixed.

One of the most annoying of them is – “Unable to download new apps or update existing app“.

Why is it so annoying?

Because your existing apps do not work smoothly in iOS8. They frequently crash. And thus, either you need to update your app to the latest iOS8 compatible version, or download a newer version. But since the iOS8 launch, for many unfortunate users (one of them is me), it has been nearly impossible to do that due to this update/download glitch.

How to fix this problem?

There are two ways you can fix this problem. One is to wait for Apple to acknowledge this problem and fix it for you, or be a DIY individual and go through the solution given below which is simple to use, and haven been tested to work effectively.

Solution: Update or Download your Apps with the help of iTunes.

Make sure that you have installed the latest version of iTunes in your computer. Connect your iPhone with computer and open iTunes.

Step 1: Authorize your computer

Go to menu-> Store, click on – Authorize this computer and then login with your Apple ID (same login ID of your iPhone).

Step 2: Enable ‘Automatically Install New Apps’

Go to iPhone settings (at top right side), go to Apps (which you may find after summary and info at iPhone menu), scroll down to find automatically install new apps, check it, then click apply.

Step 3: Download Apps

Go to iTunes Store (at top right side), login with your Apple ID (same login ID of your iPhone). Search your apps (which you want to update or install) and download.

Step 4: Update or Install your Apps

Once download is complete, again go to iPhone settings, go to Apps, on left column you will see your downloaded apps, click update or install button next to it and then click Apply.

So far, this is the only way  for downloading or updating your apps in iOS8 until Apple fixes this problem.

Please feel free to ask any question regarding this particular issue or even any other technical problem that’s preventing you from maximizing the full use of your device.

$first_half_content = implode(' ', array_slice($content, 0, $halfway_mark));
$second_half_content = implode(' ', array_slice($content, $halfway_mark));

  $after_character = 500;
  if (is_single() && strlen($content) > $enable_length) {
    $before_content = substr($content, 0, $after_character);
    $after_content = substr($content, $after_character);
    $after_content = explode('', $after_content);

   ';
    array_splice($after_content, 1, 0, $text);

Quickly Find Nearest Hospital And Blood Bank With These Apps

Hospital Directory AppsHealth Emergency can strike anyone at anytime, there is little can be done to avoid such contingency, in severe cases delay by 5 minutes of getting patient to hospital can turn fatal, if patient gets medical attention and required blood on time then many lives can be saved around the globe.

One study suggests, increased journey distance to hospital appears to be associated with increased risk of mortality, a 10‐km increase in straight‐line distance is associated with around a 1% absolute increase in mortality. And many times delay is not due to distance but because of lack of information about nearest hospital and blood bank, If one can get right information at right time then many mishap can be avoided.

I have tried to compile few apps which may give you information about your nearest hospital and blood bank, these apps are for Indian cities but I’m sure that you can find such apps for your own country and city as well, if there is no app then you can simply make a contact list of all the hospitals and blood bank in your mobile phone or dairy.
