Keyboard to save Keystrokes. Something which can put quick message with little efforts. Trying my hands on Adaptxt Keyboard and sharing my review about it. Android users are privileged to change input methods and use keyboard interface of their choice which fueled innovation in text input field. Adaptxt is a result of the same.[appbox googleplay com.kpt.adaptxt.beta ]
Interface: Each button has long press function so that you don’t have to change complete layout in order to add a punctuation or a smiley. This shows that developers have given a thought while designing the layout of keyboard providing easy access to most used symbols and punctuations.
Support for languages is more than I could imagine. Around 93 languages and 44 industry-specific dictionaries available.
By saying industry specific, I mean to say the words used in IT, Legal or say Basketball or Cricket. If you are the one coming under any specific group and discuss much over these topics, predictions will come handy and increase the typing speed.
Easy copy-cut-paste functionality. No need to tap on words again and again to select for editing any post. Moving cursor while selecting characters is sometimes difficult especially on low end phones with bad touch response. Adatxt offers buttons to handle that for you.
Keyboard customization: Though it has few themes based on festival, color and events but you can even customize each element yourself. This includes color, gradient, size of buttons and even Fonts.
My Opinion: I consider myself pretty good at Virtual keyboards. Predictions on Adaptxt were pretty accurate and typing experience was fluid. Using Hinglish (which is Hindi + English) for most of the conversations and impressed with the suggestions provided by the keyboard. Language can be switched with just a swipe on spacebar which again saves keystrokes.
Only thing you will miss (if on Android 4.4 Kitkat) is emoji support.
Using Google keyboard till now which I considered to be fastest Android keyboard but industry keeps changing, innovations keep coming. Adaptxt deserves a free trial on your device for sure if you do not believe my words. Later on can be purchased for 0.99$ from Play store.
Free Alternative: Swiftkey has just announced that it will be completely free. Gives a close competition but with few shortcomings as compared to Adaptxt.
Imagine a complete stranger rifling through your purse, glove box, pockets and phone. You’re not comfortable with that, are you?
Nowadays, home PCs hold a myriad of personal files and information that most people wouldn’t be comfortable sharing. Search history, emails, instant messages, bank usernames and passwords, tax details and a host of other sensitive data can now be found on your home PC – and without adequate protection from cybercrime, this information could fall into the wrong hands.
Identity thieves and hackers target home computers because they know families often do not maintain adequate security protection on their PCs. This makes these family users easy, lucrative marks. Many hackers access your personal information in order to steal your money and your identity. Others might want to use your home computer as a shield to mask their identity as they steal from others.
But it won’t happen to me!
Identity theft is more common than you think – and the advent of the Internet has simplified the process for would-be thieves. It’s estimated that a quarter of all cases of identity theft originate on the Internet. More specifically, according to the Internet Fraud Complaint Centre, email and web pages dominate the fraud methodology, and the vast majority of victims actually have email contact with the perpetrator.
How can identity theft occur?
Anyone can fall victim to identity theft. Here’s how:
How you can fight identity theft
Common sense dictates some very obvious measures to protect yourself, your family and your computer. Make sure to set up parental controls to keep the kids from accidentally clicking on untrusted ads and websites. This includes not downloading files or clicking on hyperlinks sent by strangers, avoid storing financial information on your computer and using a secure browser.
Over-sharing on social media has desensitised our notion of online privacy, and it can be very easy to fall into complacency when sharing your personal information online. There are a number of ways that hackers can compromise your home PC and access information, most of which can be avoided with adequate security protection and a little online vigilance.
