Wonderful Android App for Storing your SMS'es to Gmail


If you are an SMS junkie like me, then the most common problem is that your mobile phones capacity to store your messages gets full. So you have to unwillingly delete your messages or take a backup using the cell phone's PC suite on your PC.

However, if you are using an Android phone with a limited SMS storing capacity, then you can easily store your message to your Gmail account. SMS Backup+ is a free app for Android phones which can backup all your messages.


For this first you need to enable IMAP in your Gmail account. Go to Gmail settings and enable IMAP under Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Then install the app on your mobile and enter your Gmail account username and password. It'll copy all your messages to your Gmail account and continue saving all your messages (Received + Sent).

1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured.
2. Engineering isn’t about perfect solutions; it’s about doing the …

Disconnect to Connect

For the past couple of days I have been reading on Productivity Tips. Have been scouring various blogs on the same.

One thing that has caught my fancy is Digital Detox. To stay away from all kinds of Electronic Connecting Devices, especially Smart Phone.

I am constantly connected to the Internet via my iPhone. Even while working on stuff that doesn't require me to be connected to the Internet, I keep my WiFi on. And this in turn compels me to check my email or browse unnecessary stuff on the Internet.

This disrupts my thinking process or my work.

Although I love being connected to my friends and family members over Whatsapp and other social networks, I don't want it to be a habit where I check my phone even if there are no new notifications.

Tip: Stay Focused with this little Google Chrome Extension

So here's my plan to Disconnect and be more Productive:
Use Whatsapp sparingly. No forwarding of that joke that you found funny or no unnecessary chit-chat.Put your email in Fet…
