4 ShareApps: File Transfer over the Air!
Often, we have difficulty transferring files to and from friends and family—whether music, video or photographs—when we are face to face. Mostly, we use a cable, Internet connection or Dropbox or Google Drive, each of which involves several steps.
In comes 4 ShareApps. Once installed on both the phones—the sender’s and the recipient’s—fire the app and decide what to send. The recipient has to merely accept the sender’s request and the file is transferred immediately—no cables, no USB, no usage of Internet data, no other tools to be used. As simple as that—over the air! You can share photos, videos, music, installed apps or other files, with unlimited file size and amazing speeds. You can even backup your apps to your SD Card.

Wifi Analyser: Get the Best Signal Strength
We all use Wi-Fi at home and at work. WiFi Analyser helps us get the best signal strength for our devices.
 
Once you have downloaded and installed the WiFi Analyser, click on the menu and go and look up the Channel Graph. The channels will be listed on the X-Axis and the signal strength on the Y-Axis. You will now be able to view your own Wi-Fi by its name and other Wi-Fi channels around you that are broadcasting simultaneously. If there is a lot of clutter around a particular channel (say Channel 5), it may cause conflicts and, hence, deterioration of the signal quality. It may, therefore, be necessary to shift the router to another channel, the one which has the least interference. To do this, request your hardware admin or cable service provider.
 
If you are a bit more enterprising, head to your browser and connect to your router (typically, http://192.168.1.1 works). You will need your router login and password. Once inside, go to settings—Wi-Fi and change the channel to the desired one. Yo! Your signal will now be much better and faster.

Is this app only for Android phones? What about iOS?

Pl@ntNet: Know Your Plant
Very often, we come across plants, flowers and fruits and are unable to identify them. Pl@ntnet is an image sharing and retrieval app which helps in identification of plants, flowers and fruits. It is developed by scientists from four French research organisations (Cirad, INRA, Inria and IRD), and the TelaBotanica network, with the financial support of Agropolis Foundation.
 
Once you install the app, choose an image—click with your camera or select an image from your Gallery. The selected image is, then, optically compared with the thousands of images stored in the database and up pops the nearest result—you get to identify the plant or flower in your picture. It does not work for ornamental plants and works better if the picture is focused on one organ. Pictures of tree leaves on uniform background yield the best results.
 
The number of plants and species covered keeps getting updated with contributions from users all over the world. If you find something unique, you can even contribute to the database. Those who want to contribute more interactively to this participatory science project can go to:
