Surfwella to bring free internet access to Nigerian Universities

Internet access in schools is an indispensable tool required for the learning process. This is why most schools provide internet access for their students either for free or through a subscription plan. But the quality of the internet services in these schools is either unstable or too slow for practical use. This is why many other private service providers have tried to improve this; and the latest of this bunch is Surfwella(nice name too tho).

Surfwella comes with a different approach in that their services are supposedly free (i.e no payment, subscription plan etc), but that makes me a little skeptical, I mean c’mon free internet access for Nigerian schools? Surfwella has to be paying for these services somehow. This makes me think there is some kind of catch, ads maybe? But, I may very well be wrong. As Olusola Bankole; Surfwella’s Chief Marketing officer puts it:
It’s our own form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is all about empowering the students to be globally competitive, and access to free Internet is the best way to empower the budding on-coming Generation-Z.
So, let’s take him at his word and see how this scheme will pan out. Surfwella plans to start out in University of Abuja before moving to Lagos State University (LASU), College of Agric, Lafiaji, and UNILAG.

The awesome thing is that this service isn’t limited to just Nigerian Universities. According to their website, you can browse for free in Lagos if you are a registered user and happen know the location of any of their hotspots(which are not listed BTW). You can sign up for Surfwella here.
What is your take on “free” internet access in Nigerian universities? Let us know in the comments section below.

Uber introduces in-app messaging

While Uber has been around for a while and has made transportation a whole lot easier, you would agree with me that there is still room for improvement; well, it seems Uber also agrees. Have you ever been in a situation where you order an Uber and some strange number calls or texts you asking you for your location? Uber decided to fix this by introducing in-app messaging.

Before then, I believe there is a need for a little back-story. Uber makes use of an anonymizing technology to mask phone numbers when you make calls outside the app. But, unfortunately this isn’t available in emerging markets. Hence, they had to introduce in-app messaging in addition to a few other features which we’ll talk about later on,
Before those, let’s take a look at how this in-app messaging works.
How Uber in-app messaging works
The driver sends you a message or you send one first; whichever applies, then the driver can reply with a thumbs up emoji just by tapping on the screen(this makes sense because there is a huge chance the Uber driver will be behind the wheels when when the text comes in). In my opinion, this is an awesome feature; why? For a couple of reasons:
  • It eliminates the need to exchange numbers
  • The Uber driver doesn’t need to park at a location and start honking the horn for several minutes
  • They built it with the driver in mind(plus, it’s illegal to text and drive).
As I mentioned earlier, Uber has introduced a few other features in their app like: Snapchat filters, calendar integrations, using friends as destination locations amongst others. I believe Uber has other plans; they want their app to go beyond just a ride-hailing app.

Have you used this in-app messaging feature before? How was it? Let us know in the comments section below. Haven't heard of or used Uber? Download their app here.

Quick Guide to Get iMessage on Android

How to Receive iMessage on Android?


iMessage compatibility is no more an issue these days. And, that too if you want to talk to people who use the same plan as that of yours, then iMessage compatibility will never be an issue. It is very much understood that those people in your plan are either iOS users or Android users.

iMessage is a very simple service that is provided by Apple. With the help of this service, you can send texts, documents, group messages, contacts and photos. All these messages can be sent with the help of Wifi. This feature is very easy to use unless you are someone who is using an Android phone. For more information, click here.
How to get iMessage on Android?

All the Android users have been seen complaining that they do not receive iMessages on their phone. Because of this, they receive messages that are segmented and most of the time, miss out on important details. On the other hand, iOS users also keep sending messages to their Android friends and they do not get them.

As of now, there is no official way of getting messages on your phone. But, you can always get iMessage on Android
if you follow these steps.

  1. Pie Message is a very special project that can be installed by the users on their device.
  2. This project is still in its development stage and you should only install this if you are experienced enough and are also ready to take risk.
  3. This is a project that was started by GitHub user Eric Chee. If you want to install it, you will need a Mac and an Android phone. 
  4. This means that Pie Message needs an OS X client that can help in transferring messages to an Android device. Mac plays a very important role here as it is the one that helps in the transferring of the messages. 
  5. The message is sent by the Android to Mac and then Mac sends the message in the form of a notification.
  6. If Mac also detects an incoming message, that is also transferred to the Android.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

  1. After you have installed Pie Message, it works as follows.
  2. It will use an Apple script and will capture iMessages as soon as they arrive on your Mac system.
  3. After this, the Java app takes all those messages from Apple script.
  4. And then, that message is forwarded by Java app to a custom messaging application on the Android phone.
  5. The message will be displayed on the Android phone and then it will respond to those iMessages.


LIMITATIONS OF THE APPLICATION:

  1. The Mac has to stay awake always in case it wants to send the message on time.
  2. If Mac is turned off, the messages will not be received anymore.
  3. As explained above, it works by routing iMessages from Mac to Android phone.
  4. As of now, the application does not work with photos, or group messages

How to Solve The Issue Of Phone Not Charging Fast

I could remember when I got my phone newly it takes less than an hour for the battery to show green(full), but as time goes by the duration for full charging kept on increasing, as a tech savvy I decided to find solution to this problem of my phone not charging fast again, which I will share with you today.
smartphone Battery life span


As the saying goes nothing last forever, this is also applicable to our desirable gadgets. One thing clear is that usage causes wear and tear of device and cells that stores energy(battery) also experience this far more than any other parts of the mobile phone. 

So, today what are the possible ways we can enjoy the days of fast charging again on our smartphones.

Here I will share 5 different ways you can effectively make your smartphone charge faster.


1. Replace Charging Cable: Do you know your charging cable also wear and tear? Also do you know the shorter the cable length the faster it powers your smartphone? I guess you said yes, OK. The default charger after sometime will reduce power transmission rate and this leads to slower boosting rate for smartphones.
USB cable replacement charge smartphone faster

Consider changing your charging cable and enjoy a little faster charging rate. 

2. Stop to Use Your Phone While Charging: I know most of us would have experience phone being hot while charging at the same time browsing, when browsing a lot of applications are turned on which later demand higher energy far more than the input, which tends to make the phone become hot and phone hotness has a negative impact on phone batteries because it weaken the battery cells.

Do this;

  • Close/End all the applications that are running
  • Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS


3. Use Airplane Mode: this is also an effective way to charge your phone faster because 3G roaming service itself consume more energy also in airplane mode most applications demanding energy are reduced drastically, the only demerit is that you won't have access to internet.
Smartphone airplane mode charge faster


4. Avoid Charging From Power bank, Laptop and other devices that allows USB channel- I guess you  that's weird right? That's not the right thing to do, there is an expected input rate for smartphone which these USB ports cannot release they're basically meant for transmitting data not charging, they do not enough current for a device to charge. Hence, slow charging. E.g Output Current of USB
PC USB port charge smartphone slower

  • USB 2.0 can provide up to 500mAH
  • USB 3.0 can provide up to 900mAH

If you don’t have a charger nearby and using PC USB port as a last resort. It would be great if you connect your device to a USB 3.0 (blue) port.

5. Finally, Replace Your Battery: If you’ve been using your device for more than 1 year, and it takes more than 3hours to charge and less than 5hours to discharge, then it’s time to look for a replacement.

Note: it's abnormal for a phone battery to charge for 4hours even though it's 5000MAH, that shows the battery as already diminished in power in take.
