How To Easily Download Paid Playstore Apps On Your Smartphone For Free

Before I start this post, I want you to know that I am not happily writing it. Why? Because i do not support hacking paid apps and downloading them for free. I've got great love and respect for App developers, imagine sitting in front of a computer screen for days(even weeks) writing a bunch of codes that hardly anyone understands and the small token which you put in place as a reward for your hardwork gets hacked away, that's really bad, innit?

You must be thinking, "why do I still do it if I hate it so bad?". My reason is quite simple, i'm writing it for those that do not have the means to pay for apps, its seems hard to believe but some of us do not have a Debit card or Credit Card hence can not purchase paid apps, if you do have a credit card or debit card i would advise you to purchase paid apps legally so as to encourage developers to continue their awesome work. Enough said i guess, now let me reluctantly continue with the post...

Requirements

To purchase paid apps for free you to have GetApk Market, GetApk Market installed on your android phone. install GetApk here
You also need root access i.e Your phone needs to be rooted.
You might also need Lucky patcher, download it just in case.

After you have these two things in place,

Open your Playstore and search for the Paid app that you wish to download free.

Scroll down a bit and click on the share button.

A long list would be dropped down, click on GetApk Market.

Download paid apps for free

Note that not all paid apps are available on GetApk Market.
If it is available you should see the requested app, click on the GET button in front of it. You would be redirected to the page where you would download the app. (sometimes it's takes time to load, you could just click on "open in browser" at the top of the screen so you can download the app through your favorite browsers.)

Download paid games for free on android


After the page is completely loaded, you see a list of links, click on anyone of them.

The apps would be successfully downloaded afterwards, Now Launch the newly downloaded app.

Note: Sometimes you get a "license verification error" when you launch the app, That is the "case" I was talking about when I told you to download lucky patcher .

License verification is something put in place to verify that you actually paid for the app, if you get this error all you have to do is;

Launch your Lucky Patcher

locate the app and click on it, in the menu that shows, select Open menu of patches and click on Make a license for app

That should be all, you can now enjoy your new app.

How To Print From Your Android Phones

Screenshot_20160804-103555Some phones come with Google Cloud Print already built into the software (largely the ones that run stock or near-stock Android). If that’s the case, then don’t worry about the download. If your phone doesn’t include the app, you can get it here.  Download the app and follow its installation instructions.


After you have Google Cloud Print, you don’t have to run the app itself in order to print; think of it like an add-on to your phone software. It’s convenient once you get the hang of it.

Make sure however that the Google account linked with your phone is the same account that you used on Google Chrome in the previous step.






  1. Open a document you’d like to print (this can be anything from Google Drive docs to pictures saved on your phone).
  2. Select the Menu button (the 3 dots in the top right corner).
  3. Click Print, and it will take you to a new page.
  4. Click the down arrow that sits just to the right of Save as PDF.
  5. Select the printer you want print from. If you can’t find it off the bat, click the All printers… to get a list of every printer you have connected.
  6. Once you’re all set, click the print button (the light blue circle that looks like a printer).
Printing web pages and Gmail messages

Screenshot_20160804-103613You can even print web pages and Gmail messages through Google Cloud Print. The process is largely the same, so you’ll have no problem figuring it out.

  1. Open Gmail or Google Chrome.
  2. When you find the page you want to print select the Menu button (3 dots).
  3. A list of options will drop down. Select Print.
  4. It will take you straight to the printing page, where you can select the right printer.
  5. Click Print when you’re all set.

Done!

See How to use your Google Maps offline

Google Maps is one of the most popular and reliable mapping/navigation services, but it’s not without its faults. One of the main complaints is that it works best with a solid data connection, something we don’t always have outside the city. Thankfully, Google Maps can be used offline, but this great feature is rendered useless without some proactive procedures.

Getting ready to take that road trip or get yourself into a wild hike? Make sure to follow this tutorial so that you will be covered when off the grid.

How offline access works

Google Maps Lane Guidance EuropeYou will need to download the area of interest before being able to take advantage of Google Maps offline. This is what I mean when I say things must be done “proactively”. The map area must be downloaded before leaving the safety of your city’s strong connection.

Thankfully, the area you can download is pretty large (I can cache all of San Diego and the LA area with a single download. Of course, there is a massive amount of information when downloading nearly two cities and everything in between them. Be ready to sacrifice plenty of storage space for your maps. These can take up to 1.5 GB, depending on the area. There is a way to download this data to an SD card, though, which is a relief. Simply go to Menu > Offline Areas > Settings > Storage Preferences and switch “Device” to “SD card”.

It’s also important to note these maps expire after 30 days. This is mostly due to the fact that the world changes pretty much daily. Maps are dynamic and require updating. What happens when a new street is added, or an old one is closed? Maybe a new restaurant opened up in town. Google wants you to have an updated version of your maps when offline.

This was a bigger issue before automatic map updates came into the game. Now it’s something you don’t really need to think about. Just go to the Offline Maps settings and activate automatic updates. This will ensure your offline maps are constantly updated when expired. You can even choose to only be updated when using WiFi, ensuring your precious gigabytes don’t go to waste.

Also keep in mind you won’t get everything Google Maps has to offer. Offline maps won’t have information such as bike routes, walking directions, transit details (along with its alternate routes) lane guidance and all those goodies that make Google Maps stand out.

Everything else works as expected. You can look for addresses, find businesses and easily navigate to them. As we said – just don’t expect the full-fledged Google Maps experience.

How to store offline maps

Without further ado, let me show you how the magic happens.
1.     Open the Google Maps application.
2.     Find the area or location you want to download.
3.     If you have searched for a specific place, a bar with the name should appear at the bottom. If not, just press and hold somewhere in the map to make the section show up. Tap on it to display more options.
4.     Hit “Download”.
5.     You can now pinch-to-zoom in and out, making the download area larger or smaller.
6.     After making your selection, hit the “Download” button in the lower-right corner.
       
     

Once your maps are downloaded you can navigate and find directions as you would when online. Just remember not every feature will be there, as we mentioned before.

Alternatives

Taking a quick trip offline, but don’t need the entire area saved? Navigation works offline just by simply setting up your route when you have a connection. Maps will automatically download the info you need to get to your destination. This is completely independent of your manually downloaded map areas, as discussed today. Once your route is configured, Maps will hold the data at least until you arrive at your goal, or until Maps is turned off on your device.

You could also check out HERE WeGo, which is one of the best offline maps services we have tested. We commend Google for having probably the best overall map quality and information tool on the planet, but when it comes to using our devices for offline navigation, Here WeGo is king.

Ready to hit the road? Now you have the necessary tools to know your way off the grid, so go enjoy the benefits Google Maps has to offer when offline!

How To Hide Apps On Android

Ever get tired of seeing that damn NFL Mobile app that came with your phone and which you can’t uninstall without rooting? Is your app drawer getting crammed with apps that you rarely use, making it a headache to get to the ones you want? Hiding apps is a good way to clean up your app tray and keep guest users from stumbling across any apps you’d rather keep your own business.

Some stock launchers offer this functionality right out of the box. Most Samsung users, for instance, have the ability to hide apps without leaning on third party apps. If your launcher doesn’t support app hiding, give Nova Launcher a spin. It’s an excellent launcher all around, and it gives you the ability to hide apps with a simple and intuitive option.

Install Nova Launcher and open the app drawer. Navigate to Nova Settings > App & widget drawers > Hide Apps. Select the apps you want to hide, and they won’t show up on your app tray anymore.

Screenshot_20151115-130600

To reveal an app again, simply return to the same menu and uncheck the desired app.

A Stock Fix

There’s a crazy easy way to hide whole folders without using third party apps. This simple fix will prevent photos from showing up in galleries, audio files from showing up in players, and documents from showing up in editing apps. However, the files aren’t particularly hidden, because all you’re doing is renaming the folder in such a way that Android ignores it.

Using any Android file manager, simply add a “.” to the front of the folder’s name. If you want to get super sneaky, try renaming the folder something boring like “.simdata” or “.systeminfo” or whatever.

Remember that these apps were created to keep files out of the hands of casual guest users. If someone with the right knowhow is really serious about getting at your private data, they’re going to be able to circumvent the methods these apps use to keep your files and pictures out of sight. The best security is to make sure that such people don’t get a hold of your device, and to make sure you’re using a secure lock screen. Consider hiding very sensitive content on a non-mobile device.


How To Conceal Your Photos On Android Phones And Also recover Them When Your Phone Gets Missing

keepsafe-homeNow, although File Hide Expert technically works for any kind of file you can imagine, it’s not really the most efficient way to hide photos. If you’re the kind of person who like snapping the occasional risque pic every now and then, you might have a better experience with KeepSafe.

KeepSafe basically creates a digital vault on your phone where you can toss anything that you don’t want showing up anywhere else. You have to create a PIN to use every time you want to access your app, and it keeps all of your sensitive files in one location. There is also an option to back your private files up on the cloud, if you feel comfortable doing so. That way you can recover your lost pics if your phone gets lost or broken.

KeepSafe is rapidly becoming one of the most widely used privacy apps, and the current version is free to use with premium features available for unlocking at $4.99 a month. The cloud backup service is free, but the premium version gives you additional features like snazzy PIN theme, a fake PIN that lets users think they’ve gained access to your hidden files if they use it, and a “secret door” that disguises KeepSafe as a utility app unless you long-press on the icon. Premium members also get a “Break-in Alert” system that logs failed access attempts so that you can see if someone else has been trying to get at your private files. In addition to hiding pictures, KeepSafe can also be used as a repository for sensitive data such as passwords and ID cards.


Setting it up is a breeze. Simply download the app from the Google Play Store and the setup guide will walk you through setting up a PIN.

keepsafe-password

That accomplished, you can add any photos to KeepSafe by opening a folder and tapping the ‘add picture’ icon at the bottom right. Use the browser to select the photos you want to hide.

keepsafe-hidden-pics

Alternatively, you can add files to the vault by accessing your phone’s normal gallery, tapping the “Share” button on the desired picture, and selecting KeepSafe from the list of options. This will move the photo to your private collection and remove it from the gallery.

How To Conceal files On Android

smartphone privacy security 4Most Android devices don’t actually have a stock ability to hide stuff, so no matter what you’re looking to do, you’re probably going to have to resort to third-party apps. Let’s start with the basics and learn to hide some files in general.

A solid app for this task is File Hide Expert. It’s a free app, and it lets you hide and unhide any file on your phone with ease. To get this up and running, first download the app from the Google Play Store. When you open the app, you’ll receive a message indicating that the hidden file list is empty. Tap the folder icon in the top-right of the screen to begin hiding files.

file-hide-expert-empty


















The app works like a basic file management app. As long as you know where the file is located, you can hide it regardless of type. Check off any files you want to hide, and then head back to your main screen.

file-hide-expert-list

From here, hitting “Hide All” will spirit away all of your files, making them inaccessible to snooping phone borrowers. They’ll no longer appear in other file managers or galleries. To bring them back, simply open File Hide Expert again and tap “Restore All.”

file-hide-expert-hide

Of course, this hardly keeps your content safe. After all, anyone can just open up File Hide Expert and see all the files you don’t want them to see in one easy-to-access list. A smart idea will be to use File Hide Expert’s password capabilities.

file-hide-expert-password

Tap the Menu button and then Settings. The very first option will be to enable a password. Check that box, and you’ll be prompted to enter a password to use. Be careful not to forget this, because you’ll need to use it every time you boot up File Hide Expert. You don’t want to get into a situation where you can’t restore the files you’ve hidden!
