How to use grenify application ??

Install it and choose the apps which keeps on running in background sucking data, battery and ram and most important you might not want to hibernate apps which gives you active notifications like whatsapp, facebook etc.

When an app is hibernated just start it and it would be working as normal

So there was already a thread about "Must have apps". Even I made a list on my blog. But this thread seems to be different. The Apps I "actually" use. Interesting.

I guess, apps like Launcher, Dialer, Messaging, People (contacts) and Gallery (includes camera app) need not to be mentioned. Since those are by default used by everyone. So what other apps... Hmm..
So, let's see the apps I use through a fictional story (based on real events)...

I can't wake up in the morning unless the Alarm plays a random song from my list of favourite songs. So that's one. Then I need to watch what time it is when I *finally* wake up. Clock and weather widget it is. That counts as an app too.

While traveling to office I would listen to my songs on TTPod and chat with friends on WhatsApp and Telegram. I would also surf some forum on Tapatalk since it's just unavoidable.



Now I am office. I pretend to work for sometime. Then I would need some break and I would goto breakout area where I see one of my colleague have this amazing trailer of a latest movie, "Edge of Tomorrow". I just need to watch this and have it on my phone too. I would use ShareIt app to transfer the video to my phone in seconds (it uses wireless tethering to do that). I would view the video using MXPlayer on my phone. Wow the trailer is amazing and I need to make a post about it on my FB Page. So I use Pages manager to do that. I don't use Twitter or I could have used Hootsuite to update on multi platforms.

Now its lunch time. And I had forgot to check whether I published that article on my website which I was drafting late night. I would use WordPress app to make final changes and "publish" the article. I could have also uploaded any media on the web server using ConnectBot.

I can now view how my recent blog looks like on the browser like Opera or Chrome. I can also use Chrome to read articles which arrives via RSS feed like Flipboard or Appy Geek which I on the loose after lunch.

Oh dear, its month end! Did my salary came? I would quickyl check it from my bank's app. Be it ICICI or Citibank. Even Canara Bank have an app now. I left for home early since I remembered I had some shopping to do. I referred the list I made using ColorNote or a task application like Astrid to remind me of some things I have to do shopping for.

I am on the Metro platform now and want to goto a market very far. An app of DMRC Metro guides me before I get lost. (Yea, asking from people would have helped too, but I have been taught not to talk to strangers :p).

While I am traveling to the market I would play some games on my mobile. Anything like Asphalt 8 or a quick race of Subway Surfer could help me avoid the strangers I was talking about earlier. Oh wait.. did I see someone playing this good looking game I haven't seen earlier? Lets just download it through Play store and get started to break his record.

While shopping I can use my Barcode application to quickly scan and get to know the exact date of manufacture so that I don't pickup old stuff. (Mom would have loved a portable Barcode scanner when she shops. I can be a barcode scanner for her anytime now.) While I am shopping I would simply compare the prices of the stuff from online. Flipkart app it is.

Well, its about time now. Time to return home. I don't really know I can afford to catch another metro in the rush hour of evening. Lets just call a cab using an app I still have to find on Google play (cause I know there is one) and reach to my home keeping an eye on the driver, meter and Google maps. I don't want him to drive me home using the longest route, do I?

Anyway I reached home. Now which app? Well, at home I would keep my phone in one corner. I won't use any other app now since I don't need them to communicate with my family members. Enough apps for today. Maybe I would need to use more apps like Dropbox when I need to share some documents with my friend, or Endomondo, when I need to track how much calorie I burn after a quick jog, or AndChat to chat on IRC with digit forum members. For now... its the end of the day and I need some rest. Screen locked.

ha ha ha. We have all become zombies staring at electronic screens all day and even the most minor inconvenience in life has to be somehow rectified with an app.

Or your smartphone is managing your life. How did you live before you got your smartphone ?

I would love to post a story about my life when I didn't have a smartphone, but sadly I don't have enough time.
So I would just keep it short and say, life wouldn't the same of course. Mom or an alarm clock would wake me not the alarm app.

I would have listened to songs on FM radio instead of TTPod. I won't be communicating with friends over Whatsapp, rather would just talk if I had a phone. Or plain old SMS. Of course SMS plan would have taken place instead of Internet plan.

I would have been watching trailers on Youtube instead of my smartphones. Lunchtime would be spend just 'eating'. News would have come through gossips or that one TV in the cafetaria.

I would have still shopped but maybe I wouldn't be able to choose best things or would not have been able to choose from lowest prices. Bargain skills would have been needed then, where I am very bad. So in short probably I would just have been ripped off.

I won't be able to hire a cab since I wouldn't have trusted the intentions of drivers. And would have to ask strangers for directions in new places, no matter how confusing they themselves must have been.

Life would have been radically different without a smartphone. I would have to carry digital camera everywhere. I would have to stand in queues at a lot of places.

Well, life would not have been half as bad probably even without a smartphone.

Who is the dev for whatspp+ version you use, is it safe??
Is app taken from another dev allowed to use/edit by ourself and release?
Yes as long as you provide proper credit and follow licencing. e.g. Some app are licensed under Creative commons with commercial use.
Why avoid it!?
  • He is charging money for pro features which he just added on core whatsapp! Obviously against all T&C.
  • No quick updates, security upgrades and patches. (As he have to fork each time new major release comes out)
  • For each update people keep searching for cracks and blackhatters know how to attcak them. osama gareeb and all that sh!ts, I once found my friend's phone full of ads and BitCoin mining underneath.
