+Lifehacker posted an article today that describes an ingenious tip to help save time and effort when you type in your email address on your iOS or Android device (http://goo.gl/5vos5r). It involves creating a shortcut in your devices personal dictionary so that when you type "@@" or "qq" (or frankly whatever you want), it instead actually types out your email address. And if you have a handful of email addresses, you just assign the others accordingly:@@@, @@@@, etc.

I tried creating the shortcut by adding it to the personal dictionary of my Android phone, but I guess that isn't connected to my dictionary in Fleksy because typing @@ or even qq (I've tried adding both separately) doesn't type out my email address for me. When I found the fleksy-specific dictionary in fleksy's settings, it appears that I can add words to my dictionary, but not shortcuts.

Hopefully this is something Fleksy can eventually build into the app? I know it'll take some time, but this would be super helpful. Fleksy seems to be all about speed and efficiency, and it doesn't get much faster or more efficient than keyboard shortcuts.

Just a thought! :)

There's an Xposed modul with macro abilities, independent of the keyboard used.

Well gentlemen, it's been real. But today's the fateful day that I'm finally uninstalling +Cover. When this app first came out, there was a lot of promise and potential. Unfortunately, ever since Twitter acquired it updates have been too few and far between to allow it to grow into the amazing app it could be.

It's a shame, this app could have been so much more. But instead, Twitter decided to kill it. Only rather than shut it down and remove it from the Play Store, Twitter gives it a slow and painful death of occasional, lackluster updates. I won't bear witness to this torture anymore.

#RIP  Cover, may your idea at least inspire other developers to create similar but improved upon, lock-screen apps in your image. In the meantime, I'll be on the hunt for another worthy lockscreen app to take your place. Any suggestions, anyone?

It hasn't worked propely since lollipop was introduced. My nexus 4 still has it installed in the hope one day its promises are fulfilled. It doesn't know where I am, the apps don't update with use and if I use the lock screen (which is why I installed it in the first place) I unlock from 'cover' then lollipop asks me to unlock the phone again. Frustrating and time consuming. #rip definitely. Don't use twitter, don't see the point. Guess they're too busy raking in the cash to give a toss about great ideas like this one. Rant over.x

Two flicks of the wrist

Whether locked or asleep
that's all it need take!
