On connecting the accessory the even or app is automatically launched. This accessory can be anything like wireless speakers, headset, headphones, Bluetooth, charger and USB devices like flash drives and keyboards. The Smart Connect is an inbuilt system app and can be found on almost every Sony Xperia smartphone that runs on android 4.1 or above.

smart connect

A question may arise that why you should use this app. Well this app can activate other apps when a specific accessory is connected. For example when you connect the headset the Walkman app automatically opens and music starts playing. You connect a flash drive/pen drive to your Xperia and file explorer opens own its own. So Smart Connect can be configured to launch automated events on connecting an accessory. This tutorial is on Xperia M but can be applied on Xperia Z, Xperia M2, Xperia T2, Xperia SP and others.

How To Setup Smart Connect For Sony Xperia M

  • Open Smart Connect app. There will be two tabs ‘Devices’ and ‘Events’.
  • ‘Devices’ tab shows all the accessories supported by your phone like charger, headset, headphones, USB devices and Bluetooth.
  • ‘Events’ shows the list of all events that are configured on your Xperia android. Default events are ‘Night’, ‘Music on the go’, and ‘Music at home’.
  • Tap the ‘+’ sign to create an event. 
  • Tap ‘Add device’. Select ‘Headset’.
  • If you want to give a specific time period then tap ‘Add time’. Enter your time period under ‘Between’ then press ‘Done’. When the time limit is selected then the Smart Connect will only work in between that time period. To make it work every time you connect headset, just skip the ‘Add time’ option.
  • Tap the arrow right below to move to next step. Here choose ‘Add start action’ then tap ‘Play tracks’. Then choose ‘Play’.
  • Now select ‘Add end action’ then tap ‘Play tracks’ and choose ‘Pause’.
  • Move on to next step by again tapping the arrow in below right corner.
  • Enter ‘Event name’ click ‘Finish’.
  • The created event will be visible in ‘Events’ tab.
Now whenever you connect a headset to your Xperia M then it will automatically launch that event and music will start playing on its own. On disconnecting the headset music will be paused.

Another Event For USB Device
For this you will need an OTG cable and a USB keyboard. Connect the keyboard to the phone and follow the steps below.

  • Open Smart Connect and tap ‘USB Keyboard’. Then select ‘Create new event’.

IOLO System Mechanic 14: Fix, Clean, Boost And Speed Up Your PC

Over the course of the past 15 years or so, you may have heard of IOLO System Mechanic. Well-known for its history of optimizing PCs, System Mechanic has won numerous awards over the years and sold a large number of copies and one of the most unique things about the program along with this that has kept it on the market is its consistent ability to add more and more features. The makers of System Mechanic, iolo technologies, do this by regularly releasing updates to the program that adjust to take on the ever-evolving problems that slow down PCs.

iolo system mechanic

The latest version of System Mechanic just released by iolo, System Mechanic 14, focuses on optimizing PCs in real-time, greatly improving the PC user experience and maximizing app and battery performance.
Version 14 features a brand new technology, LiveBoost Technology, that approaches PC optimization with the unique angle of improving PC performance in real time. By real time, iolo means that System Mechanic not only speeds up the launch of a PCs system or a program, but specifically how snappy a computer is while you use it. What that means is that your PC reacts and performs smoother with every moment of use.

Making up LiveBoost are three distinct features:

  • OptiCore :This feature frees up CPU that is being used by programs that are not integral.
  • RAMJet : Does a similar function to OptiCore, but instead frees up memory when you need it.
  • AcceleWrite : Minimizes the writing of data on drives to improve overall system performance.
  • Power Sense : Another dynamic tool recently added to System Mechanic is PowerSense. PowerSense features two modes that optimizes PC power and that will kick in automatically based on what PC users are doing on their machine:
  • Ultra Performance Mode : This is what kicks in automatically when a PC user is doing an exhaustive activity like gaming. This will make sure that you get the most out of those intensive activities like video editing or graphic design.
  • Endurance Mode : This kicks in when a PC lacks power and needs to reserve its power for as long as possible. This mode is perfect for a user who is working on just a word document or surfing the Internet.
Now that the technical stuff is out of the way, it is also valuable to understand System Mechanic from the perspective of an average PC user. If you aren’t someone who is into the technical things like RAM and memory, System Mechanic is pretty easy to explain – it is an easy to use software that can clean out and speed up a PC.

If you have an old PC that has been bogged down over time and you want to rejuvenate, or if you have a newer PC that you want to make sure keeps running up to a good speed, System Mechanic can be a worthy asset.

If you are interested in finding out more about System Mechanic or downloading it, go to iolo’s website, On their site you can also find out more about the rest of iolo’s product line, including the free version of System Mechanic, System Mechanic Free.

Use Night Mode App To Reduce Screen Brightness On Android Below Normal Levels

Android smartphones have a brightness level that can't be taken beyond a certain level for very low screen brightness. The light coming from the phone's screen is harmful for eyes specially in night. The night reading is also difficult because of high intensity screen brightness. No matter whether the brightness level is set to minimum it will still hurt your eyes if you look at the screen in night. But don't worry there is an app named 'Night Mode' which can override the android phone's brightness and can set it to ultra low level. You can turn the screen almost black. This app actually acts as a screen dimmer by applying a black filter in front of the screen as a result brightness is greatly reduced which is eyes friendly. So what are you waiting for install this app and stop hurting because this app acts as eyes protector.

Reduce Screen Brightness Below Normal Levels On Android With Night Mode

  • Download and install Night Mode App for android from here.
  • Open the app. Set your brightness level. Tap start to activate night mode.
  • The screen brightness will be greatly reduced.
  • Tap 'Stop' to exit the app and return to normal screen brightness.

How To Show Owner Name And Contact Information On Lock Screen Of Android

Android smartphones  have built in functions for remote wipe, remote lock and locate when lost. Google has released android device manager which is inbuilt app for remote lock, wipe and locate. Samsung phones have Samsung Dive service through which you can do the same when your phone is lost and for Sony Xperia smartphones there is My Xperia service. But these services are only useful when the internet data, location services, GPS and background data(in android 2.3) are always enabled on your phone. If any of the service is off on your phone then these tracking apps won’t even work. The easiest way to get back your lost android phone is to prove that you are the owner of that lost phone. You can simply do this by showing your name and an alternate contact number, or email on the phone’s lock screen. After seeing your name and phone number there are chances that someone who finds your phone may return it you.

How To Show Owner Name And Contact Information On Lock Screen Of Android

  • To show owner name go to ‘Settings>Personal>Security>Owner info’.
  • Now put a check mark on ‘Show owner info on lock screen’.
  • Now enter your name and mobile phone number in this format “Owner: Your Name [Contact Number]”. If you mostly travel outside your country then make sure to add the ISD code before your phone number.
  • Make sure the contact number should be a different one. It could be your other phone’s number or your relatives number on which the person can contact if he finds your lost android phone.
  • After entering the info tap back button.

Now if a righteous person finds your phone then there are chances that you will get it back.

Important Notes

  • This post doesn’t guarantee that you will get back your lost android phone even after placing owner info on the lock screen. It depends on the person whether he/she wants to return your phone or not.
  • Always secure your phone with a pattern lock, PIN or password to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Services like Samsung dive and My Xperia can also allow you to show owner info after remote lock, but it is only useful if internet data is enabled and Samsung account and My Xperia are fully setup.
  • If you have a Samsung phone then you can avail its phone tracker service which is even better unless your phone is factory reset by the person who gets it. X-Alert for Xperia does the same work for Sony Xperia smartphones.
