Send Whatsapp message without saving number

Whatsapp is one of the most preferred app when it comes to messaging. One of the main reason being that it works with phone number as the identity and most of the people are found on the same platform. One can send various types of media file like photo, video & documents too. But you need to save the number if you want to message somebody. This is one of the drawbacks if you are running a business and do not wish to save the number everytime. So today I will share how to send whatsapp message without saving number. This involves two methods – one is through third party Android app and second one is through a browser link(works for both Android & iPhone).

How to send whatsapp message without saving number?

how to send whatsapp message without saving number

Method 1 – Through 3rd party app(Only for Android | iPhone users scroll down)

  1. Go to playstore and download “Direct Open for whatsapp chat“.
  2. Install and give the contacts access permission.
  3. Once you provide the permission, this app will be able to see your call logs and then you can directly choose an unsaved contact to send Whatsapp message.
  4. You also have a field where you can enter the unsaved number to message them directly on Whatsapp without saving it on phonebook.
  5. After you provide the number or choose it from call log, the app launches official Whatsapp messenger. It is totally safe to use this app as the messages are going through original Whatsapp app.

Method 2 – Using Browser Link :

For iPhone:

  1. Open this LINK on safari browser.
  2. It has the option to enter mobile number and send message. This also opens the official Whatsapp app with the unsaved contact.
  3. You can use this as an app by clicking the share button and then tapping on “Add to home screen” option.

For Android:

  1. Open this LINK on Chrome browser.
  2. Again it has the same option to enter mobile number and send message. This opens up the official Whatsapp app with unsaved contact.
  3. You can use this as an app by clicking on three dots option button and then choosing “Add to home screen” option.

Both the methods mentioned are quite similar, but I prefer using Android app. The benefit is that it can access my call log and I can directly send Whatsapp message without having to type the number. You can share the trick to send whatsapp message without saving number with your friends if this proved helpful to you. Any doubts can be posted in the comment section and will be addressed as soon as possible.

Wireless charging featured

How to do wireless charging on any smartphone

Today’s smartphones with big screens and high performing hardware consume a lot of juice from the battery. Despite the big battery pack, most of the smartphones out there won’t even last for a day with moderate usage. Though some of them come with fast charging which is a relief but making time for charging is difficult as we cannot leave our phones even for a single minute. Here is the place where the concept of wireless charging comes to rescue. You just have to place it on the charging pad without connecting it with any sort of cable and your smartphone starts charging. There are few brands like Samsung, Apple, LG and others offering wireless charging in few of its smartphones. But what about the other smartphones that don’t have the required hardware? Don’t worry, today I will share how to do wireless charging on any smartphone. Please read the whole article before proceeding with the process.

How does wireless charging work?

Before we actually go ahead with wireless charging let us clear a few concepts. So wireless charging basically works using two coils which transfer current using a magnetic field. Wireless charger involves a base which has the first coil which is connected to our charger. This coil creates the magnetic field which is intercepted the phones coil that is the second one. Current is induced in the second coil using the magnetic field produced by the first coil. This whole concept is called magnetic induction. But as the range of the magnetic field produced is very less, you have to nearly touch the phone and the base station for the charging to begin.

I hope you got the concept cleared now. Next thing you need to know that smartphones that come with wireless charging already has the second coil inside them. So you just need a wireless charging station to put your phone and boom your charging will initiate. But for the phones without wireless charging feature, you need to attach the second coil to the smartphone externally. So that is called the wireless charging receiver. The standard which is followed by all the wireless chargers and smartphone manufacturers is the famous Qi standard.

How to do wireless charging on any smartphone?

  1. Check if your phone supports wireless charging. If not then first purchase suitable Qi wireless charging receiver adapter. Here is what it looks like. Please make sure that you verify the type of pin before actually making the purchase. For iPhone users, you have a different adapter than Android as the pins are different.
  2. Note that for android micro-USB port there are two types available in the market – Type A and Type B. It all depends on the orientation of the micro-USB pin on the smartphone. The Below mentioned diagram shows the orientation of Type A and the other inverted will be type B.

    Wireless charging receiver type for Android

  3. Next, you need to purchase a wireless charger that is the base station which will be connected to your charger and will be charging the smartphone. Remember to check the current rating of both the charger and receiver which will decide the speed with which your smartphone will charge. I bought the PTron Wireless charger which is available for Rs. 499.
  4. Additionally, you can also purchase the phone case so that the Qi wireless charging receiver adapter is properly attached with your smartphone.
  5. Now just go ahead and connect the wireless charger to your mobile charger.
  6. Try placing the device on the wireless charger and you will see that it is charging.

Note: The phone or the wireless receiver adapter may get heated up during wireless charging which is totally normal. If the temperature goes beyond a certain limit then please contact the manufacturer to get it fixed.

One major disadvantage of wireless charging that still exists is the time it takes to charge your device. The charger and receiver that I purchased were rated at 5V 1A which is almost half the power rating as my regular charger. It is way lesser than the fast chargers out there in the market. But the advantage comes with convenience so that you don’t have to connect it to the charger with a wire. Just place the wireless charger on your work desk and let it charge when it is resting on the wireless charger.

I feel that wireless charging is surely the future and with this method, you can charge any smartphone wirelessly. Additionally, it looks so cool to charge your device wirelessly. So now you know how to do wireless charging on any smartphone. I hope you liked the tutorial, if you have any doubts please post them in the comment section below.

All you need to know about Root Explorer

Android is one of the most famous operating system found in most of the phones these days. Have you ever wondered why is it loved by so many people? Or why are people crazy about getting a good android phone? The main reason being the level of customizations it offers. If you don’t like anything, you can always go ahead and remove it or replace it with a better alternative. But for doing high-level changes you might need root access. Also you will need an application more like a file manager – Root Explorer. Some people might not be aware of what rooting a device really means.  So let us just start with that and then move on to all you need to know about root explorer.

All you need to know about Root Explorer

What is rooting?

Normally while manufacturing smartphones, mobile companies lock certain amount of access to prevent accidental damage that may be done by user while using the device. But if you really want to customize your Android device, you need to unlock the God Mode by rooting the device and gaining access. So in simple terms rooting a device actually means taking full control of your device. Once you are a root user, you are allowed to do any change that you wish to do. It has its pros and cons but we will not go too deep into that. So if you know what you are doing and are willing to take the risk then go ahead and root your device. You will find different methods on the Internet.

Why Root?

Well the first reason being the number of changes that you can do once your phone is rooted is limitless. You can change the overall looks of the software. You can always tinker with the hardware as you possess the access to change the operating system. One can tinker in the game files to score some benefits. Changing the system parameters will always need full root access.

Disclaimer: Any changes you make are your responsibility – valid even if your phones get corrupted/bricked or stop working due to some faults.

What is the role of Root Explorer?

So basically if you need to change something, you will need to browse through all the system files and folders. Some of the ready made apps might do specific changes for you, but if you want to DIY then you will need a file explorer. But choosing any file explorer won’t do justice as you will need to access the system files after rooting. This can be done from an app that can make good use of root access and make the necessary changes. One such very famous application is the root explorer. As the name suggest that the root explorer will help you to edit system files once you have the root access. This doesn’t mean that you cannot use the root explorer without a rooted phone. On an unrooted device, root explorer will perform just like a normal file explorer showing you different folders and files that might be created by user or the device for storing app related information. But the real fun of using root explorer will only be when you have the root access.

You are reading: All you need to know about Root Explorer

Where can you get Root Explorer?

You can always download the software from this link – Root Explorer Download. This is like the premium version of the app which is available on Playstore for a small fee. But from this link you can actually download the root explorer for free. After downloading the app, you will need to give permissions. If you are using a rooted phone then provide the normal permissions along with the root access. The SuperUser app might open up while assigning the permission to root explorer. Give all the required permissions to the root explorer. Also remember to check the unknown sources option from the settings menu before you go ahead and install the APK file.

What can you do with Root Explorer?

As discussed root explorer will help you edit system files. Here is a list of features that root explorer can offer you:

  • Browse files
  • Editing System Files
  • Editing build.prop
  • Modify/Delete system apps – good riddance
  • Move apps to system folder
  • Edit general functions
  • Change gaming files and parameters
  • Changing read/write permissions for a file/folder

Screenshots from the Root Explorer App:

Overall all these features make the root explorer one of the best file manager there is to enjoy the root browser access to the fullest. One major change you can do after rooting is now you can actually completely delete/uninstall system apps. People suffering problem from bloatware will surely understand the happiness. By rooting you are one step closer to the hardware and software present in your smartphone. By rooting you can also change the values of your processor to overclock or underclock it. Underclocking processor which actually save your battery life while overclocking will increase the performance. Again tampering with the game files will earn you some major benefit in the digital gaming world. One of the other famous thing that is famous in the rooting world is the Exposed Framework. You can read all about it on the Internet.

So overall rooting might be a risky task – some people actually manage to hard brick their devices. Rooting is a talent just like other things. But many times the risk is really worth taking. It all depends on your curiosity level. So this was almost all you need to know about Root Explorer. Let me know if you have any doubts regarding anything in the comment section below.

  10. For people using older Android version can play by continuously changing your fixed GPS location. Or maybe you can try other apps to fake GPS that may or may not require root.

You can always move the joystick by long pressing on the sides and moving it. Sometimes long pressing may close the joystick option, in that case you can relaunch the fly GPS and follow the instruction from step 4. Just start from the last used location. You can also bookmark certain locations where you often find Pokemon easily using the FlyGPS app.

What is the RISK involved in using FLY GPS to fake location?

Your account may get soft banned for a few hours if you jump on to different locations(changing countries)

How to avoid getting banned while using Fly GPS?

Always change the location according to the flight time. Like if you started playing the game choosing Mumbai as your fake location. Then next time if you plan to choose Delhi as your fake location then at least have a gap of 2 hrs(As Mumbai to Delhi flight time is around 2hrs). Till then close your game and the Fly GPS app. So accordingly maintaining the gap of playing with respect to the flight time.

Note:This is just a theory and it worked for me till now. So I will not be responsible if your account gets banned.
