• iPhone Stuck in Headphone Mode, How to Fix?

    Posted on July 18th, 2016 Echo Brown | 1,087 comments

    “As the title says my iphone 5 is stuck in headphone mode, there are no headphones in it but the phone thinks that there is. Any ideas? I’ve tried plugging in headphones and taking them out and it did nothing as well as turning the phone on and off. It just randomly happened today, I haven’t had headphones in for over a week and it wasn’t like this earlier.”

    When iPhone is stuck in headphone mode, it will prevent users from hearing the sound. Also iPhone will act like headphones are plugged in. It is quite frustrating if your iPhone is stuck in headphone mode, but there are five methods that you can take advantage of to fix the issue.

    Method 1. Clean the Headphone Jack

    The first way is to clean your headphone jack when your iPhone is stuck in headphone mode. You can use a toothpick or q-tip to remove the dust or dirt from the headphone jack. And, please be careful to do this.

    Method 2. Unplug and Plug the Headphones Several Times

    Maybe your iPhone hasn’t completely recognized that your headphone was disconnected if your iPhone stuck in headphone mode. The easiest way that most people did the trick is to insert and remove the headphones several times (at least 7-8 times). The method is easy-to-do but useful for soloving the issue.

    Method 3. Dry your iPhone When Water Damaged

    If your iPhone was water immersed, you should make sure whether your iPhone headset jack is fully dried. You can use the hair dryer to blow into the headphone port and lock the phone for a while.

    Method 4. Restart your iPhone

    Press and hold the Home and Power buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds till the white apple logo appears. Keep pressing till the screen goes black. Then press the same button with the same way to turn on your iPhone again.

    Method 5. Modify iPhone Settings

    You can go to iPhone Settings>General>Accessibility>Incoming Calls (Call Audio Routing in iOS 10/9.3/9/8 devices like iPhone SE/6s/6, iPhone 6s/6 plus, etc.). And change the Incoming Calls (Call Audio Routing) to Automatic or Speaker. Then you need to go back to your home screen and toggle the volume up/down buttons. Open iPhone Settings again and change the Incoming Calls (Call Audio Routing) to Headset.

    Tip: If you lost or delete some data by accident during the process of fixing iPhone stuck in headphone mode, you can recover them with the iPhone data recovery software.

  • Get Album Artwork for iTunes with 3 Simple Methods

    Posted on June 30th, 2013 Wiki | 173 comments

    Buddies, welcome to my today’s share on how to fix and add album art for iTunes! In the following you will embrace 3 most widely-used ways to get album artwork for iTunes.

    If you are the one that prefers to download songs from various sources on the web other than directly downloading from iTunes store, for sure you get the highest possible to run into the problem of missing cover art. That frustrated problem also occurs when you import songs from say a burned CD into iTunes library. If you get songs from the web or CD on the regular, the missing cover art problem will be spreading like wildfire, finally becoming a disaster and stops you enjoying better music with iTunes.

    So have you ever thought of getting album artwork back for your iTunes songs? Have no clue to cope with that problem? No fear! Right here you will find 3 different methods to recover album art effectively.

    Method 1: Find album artwork with Google

    In the beginning, I will start by introducing a free and manual way of adding missing cover art to your iTunes songs. For this method, your best mate is Google Image search. Actually you can take advantage of the richest resources on Google Images to get album artwork for iTunes songs. Here also list the full steps to add album artwork to iTunes songs with Google.

    1. Visit google.com and search for the album you need cover artwork for on Google Images.
    2. Click the image so it expands and you get the larger view of the image.
    3. Right click the image and save it to your computer
    4. Open iTunes and drag the saved image into the missing album spot.

    If you just have several songs to be recovered, undoubtedly this method is the best. However, it will be time consuming if you have a large amount of songs to find artwork for. So if that’s the case, you can directly turn to the method 3, which is introduced  to add iTunes album art massively.

    Method 2: Get Album Artwork for iTunes with iTunes itself

    This method is by far the easiest and quickest way to find album artwork, since iTunes has an option built-in that will search and attempt to bring back the correct album cover art for your music collection. Obviously this option is worth a try, but I should remind you that this method is the least effective as you will get quite poor recovering results. You will find only few album covers are recovered due to iTunes limited online database. The recover success rate relies on the album actually being sold on iTunes.

    1. Open iTunes and select one or more albums that are missing artwork.
    2. Control-click (Mac) or right-click (PC) to bring up the contextual menu.
    3. Select Get Album Artwork
    4. You’ll receive a message that information about your songs will be sent to Apple, although they don’t retain information related to the contents of your library.

    If successful, you’ll see it show up immediately in iTunes. If not, have no fear, as there are a number of good alternative paths we can adopt, like the Method 3.

    Method 3: Get Album Artwork for iTunes with Album Cover Finder

    Since we have mastered all traditional ways to get album artwork back, now it’s the time for me to introduce the holy gray way to get album artwork for iTunes – take use of Leawo Album Cover Finder. With the help of this best-reviewed program, you can automatically get album artwork for iTunes in just a matter of minutes.

    I should say this is truly the best method for the die hard music collector. Not only you can find your missing music artist, album, album artwork, etc. automatically, you can even remove duplicate songs in iTunes or music folders on other MP3/MP3 devices. Songs labeled “track 01″ or “unknown artist” will be restored accurately and massively thanks to its world’s most powerful and richest online database. This app is indeed your best mate to find all missing cover art along with fully automated duplicate removal.

    1. Download and install this Album Cover Finder on your computer.
    Album Cover Finder for Win / Album Cover Finder for Mac
    2. Run the program, and click Start to Clean iTunes button.
    3. The program then scans your music library automatically and displays all songs missing album artwork in Songs Without Album Artwork section. You can choose to download artworks for all songs.
    4. Artwork of some songs might be not downloadable. Or if you feel disatisfactory with the fixing result, you can double click the song or click the Edit button in each unrecognized song to do manual editing. You can import artworks as you like.
    5. At last, after fixing, you can simply apply the results to your iTunes music library by clicking on the Apply button on the top-right corner.

    Okay, above are by far the top recommended methods for anyone who wants to cover album artwork for iTunes.

  • Nokia HERE Maps is Available for Web, iOS and Android

    Posted on November 15th, 2012 David Brooks | 204 comments

    Nokia is set to release its own map application for iOS. Called Here, the application will be part of a wider rebranding of Nokia’s mapping product. Here won’t be completely native, as Nokia announced that it is based on HTML5. Here will include voice-guided walking directions and some measure of offline functionality, among other features.

    With HERE, Nokia hopes to change that. Available now as a desktop and mobile web-app, HERE is a lightning-fast maps solution with clean design, a strong data set and dedicated navigation modes for walking, driving and public transit.

    Here Maps

    It will be a free download for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. “Of course, Nokia will build apps, some of them unique to Lumia devices, that gain a competitive advantage for Nokia,” he added.

    The iOs app will include voice-guided transportation and walking directions, both things that Apple does not offer. It will also have offline support, allowing users to select a local region and pre-download the maps for that region in advance.

    With the problems faced by Apple Maps, many have looked to Google for a new native mapping experience on iOS, but it’s not here yet. Nokia says Here will arrive “in the coming weeks.”

    There hasn’t been serious maps competition on iOS before, so these next few months, with Google and Nokia releasing competing products, and Apple fixing errors and filling in missing data, are going to be interesting to watch. It is also important to remember that despite problems faced by many, Maps on iOS are still reliable for many others. When these alternative apps from Google and Nokia do eventually launch, if they are good, iOS will have not one but three viable mapping options available.

    While some might question whether or not Apple would approve these apps, remember that having three major mapping apps on iOS is good for users, and makes iOS more attractive, and as long as you’re using iOS, Apple wins.

  • Top 10 Funniest and Best Apps for iPhone and iPod Touch of 2012

    Posted on July 31st, 2012 David Brooks | 1,923 comments

    The long anticipated next Apple iPhone, maybe named as iPhone 5, has been confirmed to be released this fall, mostly at the September 12th event as reported recently. Even though the detailed features of the next Apple iPhone have not been unveiled, upon the iPhone 4S, we can get a lot of apps to add fun to our iPhone. In this post, I would like to share some funny and wonderful apps for iPhone and iPod Touch which are emerged this year so far. These apps could include ones for killing time, image and video editing apps, email tools, user interface optimizing apps, and utilities that could speed up common iPhone tasks to improve your iPhone and iPod performance. With the help of these practical apps, you could get a more productive iPhone or iPod Touch. Some of these apps could be installed directly on your iPhone, while still some other apps need to be installed on your computer as assistant.

    iPhone AppsSparrow: If you need a gesture based email client to replace your Mail app, Sparrow would be your right choice. You only need to have a Gmail, Google Apps or IMAP account. This app enables you to pull down the inbox list to refresh your inbox and also you can swipe across a message to reply, archive and delete emails. This app has full support for Gmail’s archive, labels, and priority inbox features. $2.99

    Clear: Clear makes use of gestures in a very Apple-esque way to manage your task list. List items are displayed in a heatmap by priority and you create new items by pinching items apart, dragging from the top of the list or tapping at the bottom. To mark items as done you just swipe left or right. Clear is very intuitive with no buttons or switches to act as a simple task manager without advanced features like setting time or location-based alerts. $2.99

    Draw Something: Draw Something is a funny app to help you kill time with your friends or family. You challenge your friends to guess the word you are drawing and you get game currency for each guess, depending on the word difficulty. Starting with simple sketches, you can get more colors and drawing tools for your Draw Something masterpiece as you own more coins. Free

    iPhoto: If you need a photo editing tool on your iPhone, you can refer to iPhoto for iPhone. iPhoto is packed with effects, filters and adjustments for your photos. The app organizes your mobile photo library and integrates with Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. You can also send photos wirelessly to other iOS devices running iPhoto in the foreground with the wireless beaming feature enabled. $4.99

    SloPro: Strictly, this app is a video recording and editing tool. SloPro is a perfect video shooting app to help you take 60fps slow-motion video in 720p HD with your iPhone 4S only. The built-in editor allows you to select in an out points where the video will be slowed down. It’s free to get this app, but the recorded and edited videos would be covered with watermark. You can spend $1.99 to update it to remove the watermark and export results to the camera roll or iTunes.

    Video Editor: This app is useful for you to edit images and videos on your computer and then transfer the edited videos to your iPhone or iPod Touch freely. It provides different effects, transitions and titles, as well as other editing features for you.

    Frameographer: Also as a video editing tool, Frameographer helps you create stop motion and time-lapse videos in a simple and straight-forward way. Since staging such videos can be time-consuming, the app lets you stop a project and resume it at a later time. You can easily delete unwanted frames and change the frames per second. But this app is very power consumptive. $2.99

    The Daily for iPhone: As a popular app on iPad, the iPad-only newspaper The Daily has also transitioned to the iPhone this year. It’s a separate, less expensive to subscribe version of The Daily, which is free of charge if you already subscribe to the iPad version. The layout is like a mix of Facebook and Sparrow, and unlike the tablet version, you also get a selection of free ad-supported stories every day. What’s more, it’s free.

    FreezePaint: A quite fun and unique app to merge parts of a photo with another. You can freely create images you like with pictures you have. You simply take a photo, swipe your finger on the part of the picture you want to keep and then take another picture with the chosen frozen parts overlaid. Free

    iTranslate Voice: iTranslate Voice is a translation app on your iPhone, looks a bit like Siri. You can choose the target language through flags provided, press the flag button and speak what you want to be translated. The app gives fairly accurate results. For accurate translation, it’s better for you to say simple sentences. You can also type text to translate. There’re 30 languages are included. Make sure you have connected to the internet. $0.99

    Well, how do you think of these apps? Quite useful and practical, right? If you have some other better advices, feel free to share with us here in the comment part.

  • 3 Methods to Set Timing and Speed of PowerPoint When Saving PowerPoint as Video

    Posted on June 28th, 2012 Dupont | 1,545 comments

    Usually when we create a PowerPoint slideshow, to make it look better we would add animations, transitions, music and video clips. The problem is that how to make all these effects and components sync with each other. So here in this article we will discuss about 3 methods to help you set timing and speed of PowerPoint so that you can make a perfect video for uploading to YouTube or watching on iPad with others.

    Method 1: Set Slide Transitions

    Open your PowerPoint file and select each of the music and video files you have inserted. Click “Playback” tab, in the “Video Options” group, remember to set the video “Start: Automatically“. This setting enables the music and video clips to play automatically even after PowerPoint to video conversion.

    slide-transition-1

    Now, click “Transitions” tab on the Ribbon, uncheck the “On Mouse Click” option so that the slide will jump to next slide automatically. Then set a “Advance Slide” timings in “After” section.

    slide-transition-2

    Method 2: Rehearse Timings

    Another way to control the slide speed is to preview the whole PowerPoint presentation and rehearse the timings for each slide. Click “Slide Show” tab on the Ribbon, choose “Rehearse Timings” in the “Set Up” group to tools.

    rehearse-timing-1

    Then you will enter the “PowerPoint Show” mode, with a timing setting dialog box on the top left. You need to pretend you are doing the PowerPoint presentation now and click “Right Arrow” to save the timing for the slide and jump to next slide. Pause and reset the timing anytime as you need.

    rehearse-timing-2

    The advantage of “Rehearse Timings” function is that you can set the timing for each slide and animation really accurate. The disadvantage is that it will take quite a long time.

    Method 3: Set timing in PowerPoint converter

    After setting the timings using method 1 or method 2, you can then save PowerPoint as video directly in PowerPoint 2010 or using PowerPoint to video converter. Leawo PowerPoint to DVD Pro support converting PowerPoint to popular video formats besides burning to DVD or Blu-ray Discs.

    Run the program and import the PowerPoint file you want to save as video. Click the “Customize” button below the preview window.

    ppt-converter-1

    In the pop up window, if the original PowerPoint file has transition settings, the transition timing of each slide is listed there. If not, the transition section will be blank. Double click and enter a desired timing as you want whether or no.

    ppt-converter-2

  • How to Finish PowerPoint Presentation Effectively

    Posted on June 14th, 2012 Dupont | 7,796 comments

    People always say PowerPoint is a very easy-to-use tool to make presentations, but leave an impressive impact on the audience is not. Your presentation will be soon forgotten if you are unable to end it with a convincing touch. A good PowerPoint presentation doesn’t merely mean a few good slides, but how to present the PowerPoint in an effective way. In what is to follow, we will run through a few tips to finish PowerPoint presentation effectively and hope it help to improve your next PowerPoint presentation.

    presentation

    core

    Focus on the core content

    The last few slides are expected to be a concise summary of the whole presentation content or come naturally to the aim of the presentation. So when creating the last few slides, remember not to deviate from the core aim. For presentation of introducing a new product, you should make the audience believe they can benefit from the product.


    multimedia

    Add Powerful Multimedia Impact

    One of the best ways to end a PowerPoint presentation is to use powerful multimedia content with appealing sound and visual effects like adding YouTube video in PowerPoint. Many a times a message delivered with eye-catching graphics and a gripping background score can result in a convinced audience, as compared to a mute presentation.

    bullet

    Control the bullet points

    It is old-fashioned to list bullet points on one slide. Replace the bullet points with images and illustrative words. So if you need to present a point, you can put an image on the left side of slide and list the points on the right. Do remember to add animations so that the points will drop in one at a time.

    Put numbers into context

    In PowerPoint you can make your numbers or statistics into a table or further a chart that shows clearly the contrast with others. However, when you explain these numbers, remember to put them into a specific context so that audience will easily remember it. For example, Cook said there were 400 million accounts on Apple’s App Store. This is just a number, what makes it meaningful is what he said next, “That makes it the store with the largest number of credit cards anywhere on the Internet.”

    timing

    The sequence and timing of slides

    Any experienced presenter will add animations, transitions and hyperlinks in his PowerPoint presentation. That means his presentation is more than just switch from one picture to another. The content are moving and audience are following the presenter’s guide to go through the touching content. So double check to make sure that all slides are in proper sequence and that the timing of the slides is accurately adjusted.

    Hope the above presentation tips will help you to capture the attention of your audience and finish your PowerPoint presentation in a satisfactory way.
