    When you use Voice Recorder, (It's OK to be amazed at the sound quality) the app creates "VoiceXXXX.3ga" files, be of good cheer, all you need do is rename them to VoiceXXX.MP3 and you are ready to send them anywhere. works great for choir practice.

    I just woke up and I am confused. Are you saying your just recording your choir practice then playing it on your phone later?

    Chrome has incognito tabs as well. Same concept.

    No, they are changing the extension so they can email to people without S3's and the unlucky ones with other phones/tablets can hear the recording.

    Neat trick Raging! Thanks.

    one of the reviews for that app says it does push ads now. confirm or deny?

    LOL this is ridiculous! it looks like my screen unlocks before i even swipe the dang thing :D settled on .5x though, off just feels unnatural

    on the droid razr stock unlock screen you can get to the camera without having to unlock the whole phone; if its isolated like this, security issues arent THAT terrible... i never use passwords or anything anyway, im glued to my phone. especially with this fancy new 600 dollar beauty

    Saw this one in another thread:

    Another tips is sending your location via sms. When sms is open--> press menu and select add text. another menu appears with different options--> select location--> google maps appears where you can select your location and send via sms​

    They never mentioned the name of the app, but if they were talking about Key Ring, I haven't seen any push ads. Maybe the review was referring to the offers that will show up in the app for the stores you have cards for? Those aren't push ads.

    it was in the title of his post. not everyone uses this, so its easy to miss...
    the last default review on the play store listing describes what i can only imagine to be push ads... well, if i try it out and get some, i can just uninstall. thanks for the reply

    Ok. I don't see post titles when using the Tapatalk app. I've got Key Ring on my phone, wife's phone, and my tablet and have never gotten spam in my notification. I'm betting it was a different app causing that for the reviewer.

    he's talking about the phone transitions not the app. by setting it lower it unlocks the phone quicker.

    Well now now I feel even more lost. Thanks for the answer but how do you change this? I scrolled through the posts but I am obviously missing this.

    Settings-->developer options-->

    change windows animation scale and transition scale. from my understanding the lower the faster. In the case of that post, he said it was too fast for him with it off.

    Go to settings->Developer options->Window animation scale-> set to .5
    Go to settings->Developer options->Transition animation scale-> set to .5

    This will speed up the windows transition and animations. You can play with those setting sby moving them waaaaayy out lik 5x and see what it does. This will remove that cloud of confusion :)

    Good Luck!

    A plea to all those posting.

    Please, when you post a feature you like please please tell us how to enable it (or disable) , if its not on by default.

    Thanks

    I hate that "feature". That to me makes the entire lockscreen pointless. Great, I can turn off WiFi or Mobile data in my pocket without knowing. I actually accidentally put it into airplane mode in my pocket too. Had to start to use Pattern unlock.

    I find lock screens to be pointless in general ;) Thankfully, ICS gives me the ability to turn it off.
