Digital technology has significantly helped us, making our lives a little bit easier than before. For instance, we can now communicate with our loved ones abroad quickly and easily. Instead of writing mails and stuff, we can simply open our phones or computers and with one click, we’re already talking to them.
Interestingly, there are a lot of different ways to use our smartphones to our advantage. They’re not just for taking pictures and playing games. To give you a clearer idea, below is a list of phone hacks that might come handy to you one day. Be sure to take note of them!
#1. Night Vision
There’s actually an app that lets you turn your camera into night vision goggles, and it’s called Night Eyes FREE. It looks so good that it lets you think you’re wearing a real one. This is definitely a perfect tool for anyone who wants to go through the dark.
#2. Inconspicuous Paparazzi
Many may know these, but there are few who don’t. Basically, the volume buttons of a headphone can be used to take pictures as long as it is connected to the phone. However, it should be the classic wired ones with physical buttons, not sliders. And apparently, it only works with iOS. Nonetheless, it’s a good hack to keep in mind.
#3. Video Surveillance
An app called Surveillance App allows you to turn your device into a working CCTV system. The best thing to do here is to buy a cheap and off-contract phone. From there, simply connect it to Wi-Fi and plug it in. You can even set the video and sound alerts, so you’ll receive notification when there’s noise or motion near the camera.
#4. The Credit Card Knife
While this isn’t necessarily a direct part of a smartphone, its benefits is still overwhelming. You can actually glue it to your device or insert inside the cases so you can have something to pull out during tough times. It may be quite small and thin, but its blade is sharp enough to cut through.
#5. Remote Desktop Control
VNC Viewer lets you control a desktop remotely and watch what exactly is going on there. Just simply install this on your smartphone and the computer that you want to spy on. This is definitely a must-have!
#6. Wave Control
Whether or not you’re fond of magic tricks, this app called Wave Control is worth trying. It basically allows you to unlock your device and even answer calls without touching the phone. You just need to wave your hand and it will do the rest.
#7. Surf Incognito
Sometimes, it’s best to surf the Internet land without being tracked. Interestingly, there’s an app that allows you to do just that. It’s called Hide My Ass! To put it simply, it gives you a PO Box on the internet – an address that makes you untraceable.
#8. Don’t Touch My Phone
In one way or another, we just don’t feel comfortable when someone else touches or uses our phone. Need not to worry, though. The Don’t Touch My Phone app will activate the alarm mode of your device whenever someone tries to sneak onto it. You can freely choose the kind of alarm you that you want to.
#9. Second Number
Whenever you think of an extra or second number, your initial thinking is to buy a brand new SIM-card. Of course, this isn’t really a good idea. Apparently, there’s a way for you to acquire a second number without buying the said card. This is thanks to Sideline, an app that gives you the capability of adding a second number.

Savvy Company Creates Floor Illusion To Stop People Running Through The Hallway
A company came up with a creative but effective way of stopping people from running into their hallway. It’s so effective that guests re actually walking slowly.
A workplace can actually be one of the areas with the heaviest traffic. Not to mention showrooms which are visited by hundreds of people every day. Hallways to these rooms can also be busy with sales assistants and agents escorting possible clients in and out of the building, and consider the playful kids that come along with these buying people too.
Accidents cannot be avoided in busy hallways. While we are always reminded to be respectful of other and follow rules, we still tend to run around in the halls, most especially when we are in a hurry. So to put an end to stubborn people who keep on flashing over the hallways even if there are already “No Running” signs, a company in Manchester, United Kingdom set a trend that appears to be a very effective solution to make people slow down and walk carefully.

Parents Are Sharing Their Hilarious Yet Effective DIY Hacks On Disciplining Children
Parents are now coming up with ingenious parenting hacks that are very effective at taking control over the kids.
Parenting is such a joyous milestone in an adult life but it also means the huge responsibility of molding a child to become a good person one day. It is then important to learn the art of disciplining children so that can differentiate what’s right from what’s wrong as early as childhood.
When disciplining a child is being talked about though, most parents think that spanking their children is the only way to make them realize their mistakes. It’s not like I’m saying that hitting a child is wrong as they sometimes have to learn the hard way, but do it with love and only do it for willful disobedience.
