Floating Window Shortcut

Floating Window Shortcuts is an application recently arrived in the Play Store that has caught our attention mainly to the versatility with which it can manage multiple instances of applications within the same screen. In this way you can manage a session in multitasking having complete control over what you are doing without switching the screen , through simple shortcuts ( shortcuts ) to be placed in the home as a simple icon , once you start you do not open the application at all screen, but only a sort of smaller window freely be customized in size .

All this is Floating Window Shortcuts , which also allows for customization of window size and position , choose the icon from the default or in packages of icons downloaded from the Play Store .

Unfortunately, not all applications support multiple instances and some applications support only two, also for the moment Floating Window Shortcuts is compatible with a few Samsung handsets , while some work with a few small bugs that could affect the operation of the application.

Smartphone compatible :

Samsung Galaxy S5 ( Stock )
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 ( Stock )
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) ( Stock )
Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 ( Stock )
Pro Galaxy Tab tablets ( Stock )

It may not work with :

Galaxy Note 2 (Android 4.4 Stock )
Galaxy Note 2 (Android 4.3 Stock – have some bugs )
Galaxy S4 (Android 4.4 Stock )
Galaxy S4 (Android 4.3 Stock – have some bugs )
Galaxy S3 (Android 4.3 Stock – have some bugs )

There are two ways by which you can create shortcuts to then launch them automatically. One is through the homescreen and the other is to use third party applications such as Swipe Home Button, Slide Launcher , Glovebox , etc. . that support this feature .

An app with great potential for the time being limited to a few Samsung handsets that over time will gain further support, available in both a free version with some restrictions regarding the launching of multiple instances and the PRO for a fee, complete with everything.

Even the fingerprint scanner last terminal tip of the Korean suffers from the same problems that a few days away from the market hit the iPhone 5S . Tests carried out in Germany by a team of security research has shown that the fingerprint sensor mounted on the Samsung Galaxy S5 can be hacked successfully using the same method applied to the last the iPhone , however, the situation could be much more severe seen that Samsung offers the option to pay via Paypal and send payments using the same sensor through your fingerprint as authentication.

In the video below to follow which describes in detail the procedure for forgery and breach of the scanner, a fingerprint through the photo reproduced and transformed into a mold in the glue, it is fully recognized by the sensor thus bypassing the authentication mechanism .
In the second test is instead tricked the recognition system Paypal, always based on the same mechanism , no password or code is required to authenticate itself but simply the imprint of your finger , using the same mold , it was successfully recognized by the application .

Therefore also violated the biometric scanner adopted by Samsung, although the procedure should be performed by experienced people.

With a departure that would seem to have already exceeded the most optimistic expectations , Samsung Galaxy S5 would have sold almost 1.3 times more than its predecessor , now it’s up to the analysts to make early predictions , for the moment on only the parts shipped worldwide , however, allowing us to analyze the situation over the next three months.

The goal of Samsung is able to ship 35 million Galaxy S5 in the second quarter of this year (April to June) , and in turn generate a profit of around 17 trillion Won . Plainly speaking of shipments is difficult to translate directly result in sales, but due to the popularity achieved by the brand and the excellent start of the new top of the range , the goal could be achieved without too much difficulty , confirmed also by the optimism of analysts of the company.

So Samsung may conclude another positive quarter , marking new record for the mobile segment and burn another milestone with the current Galaxy S5 models compared to previous years. The answer of course will come at the beginning of the summer.

With the launch of Android Wear many have asked about the future of wearable products from Samsung. You will recall that the first Galaxy Gear used a custom version of Android tailored for use within smartwatch , however, many limitations and the lack of autonomy have not contributed to its success . This year the solutions and  Gear 2 Neo posing for the first time Samsung ‘s proprietary platform Tizen , accompanied by greater openness to developers by Samsung and autonomy improved. But it seems that the solutions to this smartwatch Samsung 2014 have not yet been presented all , since the South Korean company has registered with the USPTO ( U.S. Patent Office ) the brand ” Samsung Gear Clock ,” which leaves very little doubt about the nature of the device.

This news comes at the same time as another issued by Hankil Yoon , a Samsung VP which has virtually confirmed the arrival of a new Android smartwatch during the year. Through a subsequent email exchange with The Verge , the company has clarified that it is an Android device Wear, the first Samsung that will handle 3 different platforms for wearable devices , since Gear Fit uses neither Android nor Tizen , yet another OS based on RTOS .

But Yoon did not speak only of Gear and wearable , since they announced the arrival of a high-end device equipped with Tizen platform as a reference . Compared to last year, the market is more mature and Samsung’s leadership is more consolidated. The situation is therefore particularly favorable for the entry of Tizen in the large global market , although it seems that the starting point will be represented by emerging markets , namely those more sensitive to lower costs and high expectations for the specific hardware device Tizen . The first smartphone Tizen should see the light at the end of June, while the first with Android smartwatch Wear the Gear Clock probable , we should wait a few more months .

Samsung Galaxy S5 immediately updated by the Korean house even before they arrive on the market, though just a single day by trading debut . The small update resolves some problems of stability of the terminal , the download weighs about 30MB and brings the firmware version to XXU1ANCE .

Already available via OTA only in some countries, in Italy probably the notification will come in the next few days , then suffered a first update for buyers who have already pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S5 or who will go from tomorrow in all the electronics stores to buy the latest top range Korea.
