The Motorola Atrix is a multimedia powerhouse that delivers an awesome entertainment experience nearly anywhere you take it. One area where users find it hard to take advantage of these features is within a car. One of the main problems is that not many users know how to hook it up. One good news is that Motorola makes many different types of accessories beyond the basic Motorola Atrix screen protector and Motorola Atrix case. Actually, Motorola has many different Motorola Atrix accessories that are made just for media streaming in a car, however, if you are lucky then you might be able to take advantage of some of the techniques that require no accessories.
The easiest way to listen to music from your device when in your car is by using the car speakers. Most automobiles these days include Bluetooth-capable speakers. To use them, all you have to do is select the car’s audio system in the Bluetooth menu of the Atrix, and then play some music. If your car doesn’t have a Bluetooth-capable system, you may still be able to use it in this manner by employing an adapter. Some of the more common adapters that you may be required to use are a USB or an AUX jack connection. Though these adapters are how most of the hands-free car docking stations are able to work.
Many old cars will not have a port for a USB or AUX jack connection. If you have a cassette player, however, you can use a Bluetooth cassette adapter. The cassette adapter is a Bluetooth device that will accept the stream from your Motorola Atrix, and then it delivers it to your older audio system via the cassette mechanism.
Another simple way to be able to take advantage of your phones features is by using a Bluetooth headset or earpiece. Most smart phone users already use these hands-free devices since it is required by many states. However, note that older and basic Bluetooth earpieces do not support enough bandwidth to carry anything beyond a basic phone conversation. The Bluetooth headset you will need is one that supports A2DP which is an advanced form of audio distribution profile. You will experience a loss in quality through this method when you compare it to high quality headphones.
If you do not like to use headsets when driving then the only other practical alternative is to use Bluetooth capable speakers. These speakers are usually inexpensive and have a mounting mechanism to keep your device safely put. As you see, there are many ways to stream music on your mobile phone, you only need to browse through different accessories until you find one that fits you.
Live Hold em Card Pro is a game that can be download for free on the Atrix. This game lets anyone in the country play Texas Hold em against each other. You will always find an open table on this gaming application. Texas Hold em is a very popular card game and this app lets you test your skills against top players for free. You can easily enter a tournament and it usually starts within a few minutes after you enter. This program has great graphics and unlike most card games the figures and card are easily visible. This is a must have application for anyone who is a diehard Hold em player.
Words With Friends has been a very popular game on the iPhone for quite some time, and is now available for free. Words With Friends basically has the same rules and plays exactly the same as the board game Scrabble. Words With Friends can be played against people all over the country, and is a good way for anyone to test their Scrabble skills while on the go.
Another popular gaming application is Angry Birds. Even though iPhone users have to pay to download it, Android powered smart phones can access this application for free. The game features hundreds of different puzzles that get harder the further you progress. The game is played by shooting birds from a slingshot in an attempt to destroy various structures. Even though the game does offer a few advertisements, you are not paying anything for it and it has been rated at 5 stars. It may be a good idea to have the Motorola Atrix case attached when playing Angry Birds because the game can become very frustrating in the harder levels.
One game that can waste a couple of hours out of anyone’s day is Abduction. The game is very similar to the very popular iPhone game Doodle Jump. The goal of this game is to make sure that a cow reaches the top of the platforms and then gets abducted by aliens. Using the accelerometer you are able to move the cow across the screen and make it get to where it needs to get. There is no need for any additional Motorola Atrix accessories including the Motorola Atrix screen protector since this game can be played without ever having to touch the screen.
Jewels is a game similar to Bejeweled but it is available for free on the Android Market. The items in this application are much bigger making it easier to swap the jewels around. Once three jewels of the same color are in a row, the player’s scores points and the jewels are removed from the screen. This game can go on forever and is never completed.
Perhaps the most direct way that having a smart phone such as the Motorola Atrix can lead you to good things academically is by enabling you to check your mail. Email is also used to communicate directly with your professor regarding any homework or school projects. Before students would have to meet their professors in person in order to be able to communicate.
In these days having access to the internet means that you also have immediate access to information all over the world. A smart phone also lets you instantly connect to the internet. Being able to access the internet in between classes means that you can gather extra information regarding your class topic so that you are able to participate.
A smart phone can also help you get and stay organized. As any veteran student will tell you, half of the battle is not the work you have to do, but figuring out where and when you need to get it done, as well as where you need to be and when. In other words, scheduling, calendar tracking, and organization become more of a challenge when you have to juggle a number of things and tasks. Having a smart phone such as the Motorola Atrix can really make things easier since you can use it to refer to your calendar to see which appointments you have and which assignments you have to do tonight or the next night.
If you have less things to worry about then you can then focus on studying or homework and if you do well in those two then you will surely get the grades you deserve. A mobile phone will also let you check your class schedule which can be very helpful in the first few weeks of school.
As you can see, there are a number of ways the Motorola Atrix can help you make the most of your academic situations. This can also be supplemented by a number of Motorola Atrix accessories, such as a Motorola Atrix screen protector or a Motorola Atrix case. Both of these are not likely to directly help you in school, but they are definitely likely to help you protect your smart phone from finger prints, dirt, grit, and breaks.
First of all, if you are interested in remote access software for your smart phone, you are probably aware of what it does, but just in case you need a refresher, it is essentially software that helps you connect to your computer from a distance. With this software, you can log into the computer, open documents, and behave as if you’re literally sitting in front of the computer.
A great application for this is the Log Me In Ignition, which basically helps with establishing a remote connection to your computer. You will have to spurge a lot of money on this application as it costs about $30. The irony is that the counterpart application, Log Me In Free, is required as a program on your desktop and it’s free.
If you have any interest in enjoying remote access applications for free, you can try downloading RDM lite, which also has the ad-free and paid version for $10. This application is very useful because it offers great support on both Mac and Windows, which makes it extremely versatile than the average program that’s designed to target one or the other. The only thing you will need to remember is to download the correct client for your desktop or laptop; as you can imagine, the program will not work if you do not match the program version to the operating system.
Another example of an app that you can use to remotely access your PC is Jumi Mouse. This app is available in both free and paid versions. The free version is trampled by the inability to interact with your computer when you zoom, but besides that, it can be very useful.
As you have noticed, it’s not that difficult to gain access to your personal computer or laptop, regardless of where your Motorola Atrix is. It is a good idea to look into some of the many Motorola Atrix accessories that are available on the market to help keep your Atrix looking neat and well protected while you are using it as an access device. For example, a Motorola Atrix screen protector is a good way to keep your phone’s screen looking sharp. Similarly, a Motorola Atrix case will give you full body protection for your smart phone, which can help you save time and money because replacing phones is no easy task and it requires a lot of cash.
The first step to properly installing your Motorola Atrix screen protector is by purchasing a screen protector that fits the size of the Atrix’s screen. You can find these in many places both online and in stores. If you are particularly picky about fingerprints be sure to get a screen guard that specializes that. If you are afraid that you might mess up during installation then be sure to pick up a screen protector pack. If you cannot find any 3 packs or 2 packs just purchase 2 of them in case you do make a mistake. A screen cleanser should also be looked at especially since you will need to have a clean screen for you to properly install the screen guard.
You are ready to begin because you have your required accessories. The next step you should take is removing any Motorola Atrix case or accessories if you have any on your phone. A case needs to be removed because it might be covering a part of the screen that needs to get covered by the protector.
Now comes the part where you should break out that screen cleanser we talked about earlier. If you didn’t purchase any, try your hardest to make the screen as clear as possible without damaging the phone (i.e. don’t use water). If you did purchase screen cleanser, follow the directions on how to cleanse the screen. Try to not leave any dirt, crumbs or any fingerprints.
Once your screen is clean you may start preparing the protector. You should wash your hands to avoid any accidental fingerprints on the protector. After you have washed your hands and your screen protector is out of the package, use the tips of your thumb and index finger on two opposite corners of the screen protector (i.e. two fingers on the top right corner, two fingers on the bottom left corner). Steadily lower the screen protector onto the screen, matching the corners as best as you can. Once you are satisfied with the placement of the protector you can start to press on the edges so that it sticks.
If you notice that you screen is bubble free then you are finished. Now you can replace any Motorola Atrix accessories or cases that you may have had to remove before. Keep in mind that depending on what kind of wear and tear your phone may endure in the future, you may have to replace the screen protector every so often. If you notice that the edges and corners begin to peel off you will know it is time to replace the screen guard.
