Chrome for Android tips, useful things Calendar can do, and more
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #19 • View online
The very first charge of my first Android phone, an HTC Magic, lasted me much less than a day.
Why? Because I had always used feature phones and wasn’t familiar with the way smartphones like the HTC Magic work. So I had turned everything on. GPS, notifications from Gmail and other apps, the works.
Back then these system services used a lot of battery juice. Including widgets. This imprinting always left me hesitant to use widgets, which I worried would drain the battery. But Android has come a long way and most widgets no longer battery issues.
This week’s list of useful Android widgets is an opportunity to reconsider my preconceptions.
