Going somewhere by using Android phone is something exciting because you don’t need to be worry of being lost. By your android phone you can download many apps that will show you the map so that you can go somewhere easily and safely. Google Maps is one of Google’s products that serve the customer of world map and its many facilities such as live traffic, public place, etc. But what about if you go in a rural area where the place has a very limited mobile signal? Of course in that situation, your Google Maps will be useless.
Today I will give the tutorial of how using Google Maps in offline mode. So if you can practice this tutorial you can go everywhere you want; either rural or reachable area without worrying of being lost. Before you go to your rural destination, the first step of course you need to go to Google Play Store and download the Google Maps.
Here are the steps to save the Google Maps in offline mode:
After you download the apps, please open it, Find out the area/place that you want to visit (especially if it is a rural area).
Tap on the name of that place.
On the right corner of the apps, you will find a symbol of 3 spots, please click the 3 spots symbol to open the option.
Click “save offline maps”
Google Maps will request you to zoom the place that you want to save. As the suggestion, please make the area you choose to be small area so that it will be easier for Google Maps to open the area that you choose. The bigger the maps area that you choose, the harder for Google Maps to open/zoom the area and there will be a warning symbol if you do this.
To access your downloaded maps, open the Google Maps apps, and please scroll the screen until the bottom area and you will find your downloaded maps.
You can use the offline maps even without the internet or wifi connection.
Offline maps will not provide you the features like live traffic, public place like railway station, schools etc.
Android will only save the offline maps for 30 days. If it has been expired, android will delete the downloaded maps from your mobile device.
You can’t use the GPS when using the offline maps. But you can use your GPS by using the offline GPS like Maps.Me – Offline Map and Routing, and many more.
So, it’s easy, right? Happy traveling by using your offline Google Maps.
For those of you who use iOS products such as iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, it is something common to hear the email alert tone whenever the new email appears on Mail App. The sound of “ding” is so disturbing if it comes at a wrong moment, for example it sounds when you are in the middle of the meeting, you are still sleeping and many other moments that need a calm situation. Moreover if we have more than jus 1 email account on our iOS products, can you imagine, how many times do we have to hear the alert tone from these devices? It’s indeed so annoying. Well, we know that sometimes we need to update the inbox, but that repetitive sound can destruct our concentration. There are some conditions that demand us to be silent and focus to what we want to do at present.
Well, I feel the same with you, so, in this post I want to share the tutorial of how to switch off the email alert tone without switching off your iOS products (in this case is iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch) into “Silent” mode. This is particularly helpful for users with multiple Mail accounts setup on an iPhone / iPad, where turning off the alerts for one of them isn’t going to impact anything important. Though these steps below are optional, if you’re turning off the mail alert sound you will probably also want to turn off the vibration alert, otherwise your iPhone will still rumble every time a new email comes in.
Here are the steps to switch off the alert tone of your email in iOS:
1) Open your iPhone/iPod Touch or iPad, find out “Settings” menu on the screen, goes to “Notification Center” and choose “Mail”.
2) Choose the email account that you want to switch off for the alert tone.
3) Scroll it down until you find the option “Alert sound”
4) Please choose “None” to switch off the alert tone.
5) If you are about to silent the vibration alert, the steps are — Go to “Vibration” and scroll all it down and then choose “None”
Now your email alert tone will not sound anymore when the new mail comes to your inbox. Easy, right? Today, we took an important step: email no longer has the power to interrupt us when we’re doing something more important. Furthermore I want to say “Productive people learn how to work smart by minimizing the interruptions email creates by turning off email related sounds and alerts.” Enjoy your life!
