The BRAND NEW rebrand!

As you may have noticed, the name, web address and logo of the blog have all changed!
The name is now ‘TechLife Blog’, the web address www.techlifeyoutube.wordpress.com and the logo is the same design however with the text ‘TechLife Blog’. This is due to the name of my YouTube channel and the name of the blog being different, so I decided to make this change!

FREE Wi-Fi extender?

Bet you weren’t expecting that. Big-brand Wi-Fi extenders typically come in at hundreds of pounds or dollars, but for free? In this tutorial I am going to show you how to turn an old Windows 10 device into a Wi-Fi extender. There are two major downsides: you can only connect eight devices (you can disconnect devices to make room for new ones) and the fact that in order to get good speeds, you need to place it in a half-way zone: where the internet is about half way through the ‘bars’, or else you will notice that the speeds will be horrific on the new network. A side note: the device that you are using has to be running Windows 10 version 1703 or above to work. Another blog post is linked here to show you how to check your Windows 10 version.

Get photo prints for free?

Hey guys. If you didn’t know already, I have a new YouTube channel. I found the old channel name really bad and my fanbase wasn’t active. So I decided to create a new one named TechLife. If you are interested in checking it out, click this link and please subscribe. It would help me out a lot. Anyway, here’s the blog post.
I found that going down to the shop and paying the expensive fee of printing photos was just too much for me, and I started searching for an alternative. The best one that I could find was an app which was called ‘FreePrints’. FreePrints is basically an app where you get 45 free photo prints a month. All you have to pay for is delivery. As you buy more and more prints, the ,ore rewards you get, such as larger free prints, faster delivery and other additional things. All you have to do to get your free prints is go to their website or download their app (it’s available on both Android and iOS, so don’t worry about if they care). Then you sign in or sign up. After you have signed up (or logged in) you can tap ‘Start New Order’. You can choose photos from many sources, such as Google Photos, Gallery, Photos, Dropbox and other file-sharing or photo-storage options.

App compatibility shows which developers care

Hey guys, today I am a bit annoyed. My friends are all talking about new features on apps, but when I hopelessly return to my device to discover that the feature is only available on IOS, it makes me want to throw my device across the room.
Like at the moment on musical.ly, you can’t get the Snapchat-inspired face filters on Android, but you can on IOS. That is less frustrating than there not being an app at all for your operating system while there is for something else, such as there being no official YouTube or Instagram app on Windows Phone.
