How to make your Android Phone Run Faster

Last year, I bought the HTC One X, which is packed with powerful processors and GPUs, but now I find my android device has gotten slower though it wasn’t earlier. It is really annoying me. I tried my best to solve the problem by myself and discover there is a pretty simple and easy solution for it. Below is a list of useful how-to tips to make your Android Phone run faster! Enjoy!
1.  Using task killer apps
You can disable all the unwanted activities and apps with the Task Killer app. But you should be wise while using task killers. Do not use task killers to close all open apps at a time, close only unwanted apps like games and useless apps. Never force close apps like Gmail, gallery, etc. because it makes your phone lag as when you open those apps again, they needs to be loaded back again to your ram. So keep those apps open which you use often. The best task killer app I used is called Advanced Task Killer.

2.  Uninstall unnecessary apps
This is one of those things that isn’t absolutely necessary, but will also definitely help speed up your phone a bit. You should make a list of usable apps and get rid of others. As a result there will be some free space for seamless running of other apps. To uninstall an app, go to the ‘Setting’ > ‘Applications’ > ‘Manage Applications’ (may vary) and uninstall it.

3.  Clean Up Your Android Device
Cached files can readily build up on a smartphone or tablet, taking up vast amounts of excess storage space and make your android devices become so slow.  Caches Cleaner App for android allows you to clean your android devices by removing unwanted files and histories etc. and boosts android speed as new. Several days ago, I have introduced you the 5 Best Caches Cleaner Apps for Android to clean up your Android device, just pick your favorite one.

4.  Restart your Android Device
Just restart your device if your android device suddenly gets slower while being used. It may not be a great option to opt for, but usually it works. Just switch it off and then again turn it on now check the device out.

5.  Remove Unnecessary Widgets, Limit widgets and app shortcuts
Widgets may be useful, but Android users tend to overdue it sometimes. It is recommended that you use minimum number of widgets possible, so as to get maximum efficiency. Do not spam your homescreen with unwanted widgets and more app shortcuts.

6.  Do not use live wallpaper
Yes, they’re cool. But it slows down your smartphone, especially those running older hardware! Live wallpaper takes up battery life (just like widgets) and since effectively it’s a video running in the background, it uses up RAM and processing power. Instead, go with a static wallpaper.

7.  Root and Overclock
Another useful method is to root your phone, and then overclock it, with softwares such as SetCPU. This will reduce battery life, but give a major increase in speed. You should be careful, so as to avoid bricking your phone. Softwares such as Once Click Lag Fix for Samsung Galaxy S can also give a major performance boost after rooting.

  1. Parking software condominium


    Free Parking Software for Town Houses, Condominiums, and Businesses Solves Parking Problems
    Searching for a parking space is such as frustrating routine activity for lots of people in cities all over the world. This search is burning over a million barrels of oil of the world each day. There are also 4-parking spaces every vehicle in the US and almost all streets are most of the time, empty, which leads to urban environments that are ironically doing far more to accommodate the vehicles than people. As the global population continuously urbanize, without a convenience-driven and well-planned retreat from cars, these sort of parking problems will worsen.
    http://webparkingsoftware.com software is the first step in the right decision. It involves using low-cost sensors, mobile phone-enabled, and real time data collection automated payment systems enabling people to reserve parking in advance or predict accurately where they can find a spot. When deployed as a system, free parking software thereby reduces car emissions in the urban centers by means of reducing the necessity for the people to circle the city blocks needlessly searching for parking. Furthermore, it permits the cities to manage their parking supply carefully.
    This free parking software is now being developed in many different states and cities around the United States and some other countries. For instance, in LA, smart meters and low-power sensors are tracking the occupancy of parking spaces across the Hollywood district, one of the most congested areas. The users will be able to access this occupancy data in order to determine the availability of the spots and then pay for them with their mobile phones. Other than the environmental benefits and lending convenience, free parking software is improving the utilization of the current parking, which lead to greater revenue for parking owners.
    These programs will be able to make great differences on a neighborhood level, but more widespread development and deployment is necessary for free parking software to change the cities and to contribute to the transportation sector pollution reductions greenhouse gas. One problem is that there are no citywide solutions all over the fragmented private and public parking providers. The occupancy data has a tendency to have many owners and is not accessible or standardized in a way that may enable software developers to turn into user-friendly applications. Thereby, individual smart parking efforts are so far successful locally, but uncoordinated, and operates in their own entrepreneurial or bureaucratic vacuums without a need to take gap between current free parking software and more widespread transportation system planning is an enormous missed opportunity for the cities to reduce the transportation related emissions.
    Moreover, free parking software has been hindered by a lack of insight into the complete benefits of this software, specifically when compared to the cost of building extra parking spaces. Lack of collaboration between communities with the parking software programs, as well as lack of coordination between hardware providers, municipalities, and developers is also contributing to the slower adoption of smart parking. Nevertheless, it is possible to overcome all these issues. Cities will be able further accelerate these advantages by means of updating the land use and building codes policies to reflect the reduced need for parking.
