It’s that time of the week again where most of us have some time to kill. This post will will look at five of the latest trending games available for free. Together these games give you hours of playing time that can easily eat up this weekend as well as the next!
Gmail’s advanced search feature is extremely powerful. I usually use this for for searching for emails from recipients or with certain labels. Today, Gmail rolled out a new feature on searching through your emails.
Last week we covered 7 apps to check email on your Nexus 7. With both the 16Gb or 32Gb, you have sufficient storage space for your music files. However, if you’re looking to listen to something different and are wanting for choice, then radio is an excellent choice.
I bought the Nexus 7 (32Gb) last week when Google released the new model. At £299, it is perfectly priced and you receive a powerful tablet power by Google and Android. This is my first Android based devices and I spent a good portion of my weekend exploring the tablet and the Play store.
Composing emails in a desktop client like Thunderbird or Postbox allows you switch back and forth between windows easily. Look up your other emails for reference or just let the Compose window sit in the background while you check new mail. By contrast most web-based clients don’t give you this flexibility and Gmail hopes to remedy that with the new compose feature.
Google announced the release of their official tag managing tool. Titled Google Tag Manager, the tool lets you manage tags (such as tracking and marketing optimization tags) on your site. You can add and update AdWords, Google Analytics, Floodlight and non-Google tags from the Google Tag Manager user interface instead of editing site code.
On my Windows machine, I use FeedDemon to browse my RSS feeds saved in Google Reader. In Mountain Lion, Apple got rid of their RSS reader support in Safari. If you’re already using Google Reader, then switching is extremely easy.
Sparrow, the popular mail client for Mac and iPhone has been acquired by Google for $25m. It should be a matter of time before Google integrates its features into Gmail. We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!
Your iPod and iPad comes inbuilt with Apple’s mail program which allows you to configure your email accounts including Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. However, if you’re an exclusive Gmail user or is your main email account, like many people I know, you might want to consider the official Gmail app from Google. The latest version of the app includes: Notification Center support with Banners, alerts and lock screen notification options “Send-as”: Alternate sender support, if configured within Gmail Persistent logins so that you don’t need to keep logging in at very frequent intervals For those who have Gmail as their main email account, a good idea is to configure Gmail to allow you to fetch email from your other accounts and / or send email from a different address.
Gmail introduced themes back in 2008. Since then there have been several enhancements including the addition of HD images. Taking this yet another step further, Google announced that you can now create custom themes in Gmail.
