Fast Finder

If you are an app freak like me, you will have 10s or even 100s of apps on your phone. And it is such a pain to scroll through and find your app. Fast Finder (FF) searches stuff in a jiffy – just enter the first few characters of your App name and it will pop up immediately for you – super fast! Just tap on the app and launch it. It is so simple.

But Apps is not just what it will find. It will also find contacts and files. If you type the first few names of a contact, FF will bring it up for you and then you can directly dial or message from there itself!

Besides, files which are deep inside your Android system can be found super fast. Just type the file name and it will pop up. Ideal for downloaded files which most of the time, you don’t know where they went!! You can even find files by just entering the file type e.g. jpg and you will find all jpg files on your Android device – really super cool.

A great  utility for super fast search within your phone!

Past Notifications

We all receive several Notifications on our phones every day. Some are important, some not so important. But in our hurry, sometimes, we delete the important ones. Some important ones run in several lines, and cannot be read. Sometimes, we reboot our phones and lose all our notifications.

Past Notifications solves all that. Just install the app, give it the required permissions and you are good to go. Irrespective of whether you have deleted your notifications or not, Past Notifications holds an easy to read Notification History. You can see all your notifications in either Chronological order or App wise order. If you put an app on the Ignore List, the  Notification will not be stored in History and will be ignored. You can adjust the maximum no. of notifications to upto 2,000!

This is real neat and helps us control our notifications easily and efficiently!
