[Tutorial] How To Use The US Playstore Outside the US On Any Android Device

Untitled-1We live in a monopoly with USA as the super-power.So,it seems fair that Americans have an exclusive app market to purchase or browse content on.But this does not mean we can’t have access to it.A simple proxy does the trick,but the question is,which proxy and whether to pay for one or not?

Paying for a proxy is a stupid idea when there are free alternatives (which do work) out there.We’ll be talking about the most convenient and easy to use proxy in just a second.For now,let’s talk about what one needs to get access to the US playstore.

Downloads

Procedure

  1. Install Market Enabler on your phone just like you would install any other .apk file and download and install Hotspot Shield too from the playstore.
  2. Open Market enabler and select a ‘ US ‘ carrier from the second tab (swipe left once).We suggest using us-verizon.Make sure you don’t set it as ‘set on boot’ because that’ll interfere with your calls and/or messages.
  3. Now open up the VPN app and enable it.It’ll take a few seconds only.
  4. Now,go to Settings -> Apps -> All and look for ‘Google Play Store’ and empty it’s cache.
  5. Open up the Playstore and you should see the US Playstore which would look something like this.

[Tutorial] How To Enable The Facebook Timeline NOW

 

Whilst it’s rather creepy that Facebook has essentially been your biographer during your time on the world’s largest social network, the common human trait of curiosity will undoubtedly take hold of many who will find themselves nostalgically trawling through old conversations, photos and statuses.

Although the feature has been announced, it is not yet available to the public – only developers. If you think you can entertain the idea of reading the most recent extract of your life story, well, at least your Facebook life story (the two don’t necessarily always correlate), then there is a way you can do so right now.

The process isn’t particularly painstaking, although it will require you to follow the instructions carefully. Before we get started, there are a few things that you should heed:

  • It’s still in development (hence the developer-only access), so don’t expect this to necessarily run as smoothly as FarmVille.
  • You will be the only person able to see your timeline (unless you adjust this rule), but it will automatically be available to the prying eyes on your Friends lists within a couple of days.
  • If you login on a different machine, timeline is disabled, although it can be retrieved (once you have completed the steps in the guide below) by following this link: http://www.facebook.com/YOURUSERNAMEHERE?sk=timeline
  • For one of the steps, you will need a “verified” Facebook account (linked to a credit card or phone number), so make sure you’re indeed verified before you decide to continue.

NOW,Facebook Said that they’ll enable this for everyone soon after the keynote but as of today ie 25/11/11 It has still not been implemented and I’m guessing that’s due to some bugs they found.

But,There’s a Workaround Found by the guys at TechCrunch,which can be used to enable this killer feature RIGHT NOW.

Enabling Timeline

Step 1: Log in to Facebook.

Step 2: You will need to enable developer mode if you haven’t already. Simply type “Developer” in the search box and click on the top result.

Step 3: Go to the developer app, which can be found here should Facebook not automatically redirect you.

Step 4: Create a new app (don’t fret, nobody will be able to see it), and give it a name and namespace (no CAPS allowed with the namespace).

Step 5: Once that’s done, click on the “Get Started using open graph” under the “Open Graph” header.

Step 6: You will then be asked to create a test action for your app, like “read” a “book”, or as I personally opted for, “row” a “boat”.

Step 7: Next, you’ll be met with a config page of your selected action. Navigate through that page and the next three pages of settings.

Step 8: Once you have gone through the last page and hit “Save and Finish”, after a couple of minutes, an invite to try Timeline should appear at the top of your homescreen.

Click it, and you will be met with a page which seemingly covers every nook and cranny of your Facebook life since the day you joined.

[News] Google + App Hits the App Store

The Long awaited Google + App just hit the app store ! It’s being tested by Us for Bugs Currently so Stay tuned for more News =)

The major downside is the lack of iPad support which is nowhere to be found at the moment. While iPhone apps can be easily scaled up in order to fill the larger screen, this app isn’t designed to take advantage of the iPad’s larger resolution.
