How to Set a Decent Ring Tone for the Reminder with S Planner?
Wednesday 13th of June 2012
The S Planner on the SGS3 is OK and easy to use but I am unable to set an alarm tone other than use the notification tone/s for the reminders...is there any way of changing this so that a proper ring tone can be used for the reminders. (Only having the short notification sound byte is not enough for me and I would like something that rings like a ring tone but do not know how to set this up)Thanks

How to set a default keyboard language on the lock screen?
Monday 07th of January 2013
I have multiple languages set up on my keyboard (and using Swype primarily).Since my password consists of English letters, if my keyboard was last used in a different language, I have to first switch language on the lock screen before starting to type the password. This is very annoying and in aggregate quite time consuming.Is there any way to get the keyboard to always default to English in the password entry field of the locked screen?

How to set a default program for a file type, not individual files.
Friday 07th of June 2013
Hi, I'm using Polkast to view and download files from my computer and every time I download and open a file I am prompted to 'Complete action using:' and I have to search and select the same app for every file, since 'Always' is only for the individual file and not that file type. It's a minor annoyance but is there any way to make it such that the app is automatically used for files of that type and not just the individual files.Thanks for your help, and sorry if this is the wrong place for this query I wasn't sure where to post.

Is there a way to have a Themer type home screen on the lock screen?
Thursday 10th of July 2014
What I'd like to have is a lock screen that shows the date, time, maybe weather, but most importantly missed calls, texts, and emails. I just started experimenting with Themer, which has some beautiful home screens that do exactly this, but of course I want this on the lock screen instead.I also tried Cover, but that only seems to give you access to app icons and such, not hugely different than the default lock screen. So is there a way to have these Themer-style designs on the lock screen? Thanks!
