These days, phones have so many features that they’ve replaced many of the tools we used to use in our everyday lives. This includes things like calculators, rulers, watches, recorders, and music players (which are now technically obsolete).
There are lesser known smartphone hacks that your device can also perform and some of them are so useful that you’ll be amazed that you didn’t know about them before. These ingenious features are pretty straightforward and will definitely come in handy.
Soon enough the only possession you’re going to need is a phone. Here is a list of several device tricks that will hopefully help make your life much easier:
1) Measuring tapes are one of those household items that are always lying around when you don’t need them and absent when you do need them. The app SizeUp is able to help you with this challenge as it’s able to measure just about anything through your phone’s camera.
2) If you’re unsure whether your remote control batteries are out of power, just pull out your smartphone and launch the camera app. Next, point your remote control at your camera and press any button. If you see a red or pinkish light beaming out of the tip of your remote when you look at it through your phone’s display, it means the infrared signal is working perfectly and the problem is the batteries.
3) Here is another one of our smartphone hacks – you can use your phone without touching it! Voice commands allow you to perform this magic and they are perfect for when your hands are busy or if your hands are dirty and you don’t want to touch your phone.
4) Not all of the phone tips are about convenience, some are also about safety. The Hudway app allows you to project your phone’s screen onto your windshield, giving you access to your driving speed and a GPS enabled map.
