Branding

Endorsing Your Brand With Mighty Skins

We all know the importance of properly branding your business, or rebranding after a company shift or huge new development.  However, most business consultants will only walk you through the technical side of branding.  So, you complete the work and you try and get the word out, but there has to be more you can do, right?  There sure is, you can try endorsing your brand with Mighty Skins.

Due to the fact that we allow our customers to design their own skins, creating a line of skins to endorse your brand is quite easy.  Simply upload your logo and let the creative juices flow.  Want to hand out some stainless-steel tumblers at your next trade show?  Brand them first and make sure people know exactly where they came from.

Sure, you could place an order to have some pens printed up with your company name or some ho-hum trinket that everyone is going to misplace or throw away, but that’s not memorable.  Our skins let you create an interesting and specialized design that will make sure people remember the name of your business.

It’s a super easy process and our design center on our website will walk you through each step of the process.  If you want your workforce laptops to look uniform, create a skin with your logo for each of your workmen.  This way, you’re telling the customer that your business is one to be remembered for the future.

If you’ve gone through the arduous process of branding your business, but you’re not sure how to sustain your momentum, start skinning.  Nearly everything you use in an office can be skinned from laptops to cell phones to tablets.  Creating a universal skin will draw the eye naturally and signify that you’re presenting a unified front, plus people just may ask where they can get one if they like your business enough.

Don’t let your brand be forgotten, skin it today!  For more information about customized skins, check out our website!

Stockings

Stuff Your Stockings With Skins

Dismayed though we all may be, the holidays are right around the corner.  This means that another year has flown by at a break-neck pace and we are all stuck trying to find the right gift for all of the people on our lists.  Though the holidays may be a lovely time for family gathering and togetherness, no one can argue that the gifting process isn’t stressful.  This year, don’t stress. Here are five great reasons to stuff your stockings with skins!

  1. They’re Inexpensive – Stuck in a coffee mug rut with your kids’ teachers? Consider purchasing a tumbler and using a skin to personalize the gift.  Our skins are high quality enough to make a great gift, but inexpensive enough that you can get one for practically everyone!
  2. They’re For Everyone – A skin isn’t just something you buy for a teenage boy or a teacher. Literally everyone has a product that can be skinned and we have plenty of designs from which to choose so you don’t have to worry about buying the same thing for everyone.  Boy, girl, man, or woman, skins are a great way to make a statement.
  3. They’re Fun – Skins aren’t the typical gift. Your boss doesn’t need another pen or personalized notepad, but you know that cell phone he treasures?  That needs a skin and you’re the perfect person to deliver!   Be remembered in the office and let your boss express his love for dragons or tacos, or whatever he’s into!
  4. They’re Memorable – Want to get in good with the new HR person in your company? A skin is a better way to do it than a scratch off lottery ticket!  If they don’t win on one of those, they won’t remember it next year.  However, chances are, they’ll think of you every time they take a sip of their drink or open their laptop.
  5. They’re Just Better – Stop buying gifts that get thrown away or returned! Buy something that says you were actually thinking about that person and what they like when you purchased their gift.  Gift giving is all about the thought.  It doesn’t have to cost a boatload of money if it shows you really considered the person when you give it to them!

7 Apps to Help Manage Your Homework

It’s back to school season, which means you may be wondering how you’re going to focus on studying and stay on top of your homework and assignments.

Fortunately, there are apps for your computer and smartphone that can help.

The apps listed below are thoroughly tested, specially picked and can work complementary to each other and help you in various ways.

App #1: Wunderlist

To-do lists are more popular than ever and that’s not without a reason. Whether you use pen and paper or more tech-savvy methods to write down your lists, tracking your upcoming tasks can bring a sense of control in your busy life and reduce stress.

Wunderlist is a to-do list and task manager app that works on both desktop and mobile devices, offering accessibility from everywhere. It has a good mix of features for every type of user. Its clean design is a great plus, as people tend to use more often products that are aesthetically pleasing. And, a to-do list app works only if you use it consistently.

App #2: Toggl Time Tracker

Complementary with a to-do list (and a personal must) is a time-tracker app. It’s not irrelevant that procrastination is one of the most popular words in student memes (and sometimes professional ones). One way to tackle that is having a clear image of the work you produce and the guilt (or sense of accomplishment) will motivate you to continue.

Its best feature is that you can group tasks by project and by “client” so you can have a clear view what is for school and what is for your employer and at the same time, divide your study time by subject and specify the task you work at the moment.

Its browser widget is great to remind you when you are slacking. So, no more excuses to procrastinate!

App #3: Pocket

With Pocket, you can easily collect stuff to read later and actually read them. Based on your interests it also recommends articles that might interest you and the great thing about this is that it doesn’t recommend very similar stuff to what you have already read, but unique and well-written content that may align with your general preferences.

For studying, it can be a useful tool to track the online sources you find during your first steps of your research when you are working on an essay or project.

App #4: EasyBib

Bibliographies are often a complicated part of school work, as it is necessary to stick to a certain style that your teacher or university prefers or requires.

Everyone knows how boring it is to write down resources by hand, but apps like EasyBib make a student’s life a lot easier.

EasyBib uses your phone’s camera to scan a book’s barcode and create a citation formatted in MLA, Chicago, or whatever format your school uses. iOS and Android systems are supported and the browser widget will save up valuable time when working from different devices.

Don’t forget to be consistent with the style you choose!

App #5: Memrise

If you are studying a foreign language this is hands-down the app you need to download right now. It offers subscription plans for offline use, but the free version is great too and you can still have access to the useful material.

Memrise uses what’s called “elaborate encoding” to help you memorize your vocabulary and grammar. Instead of having to read through words and their translations, and trying to memorize them as they are, it helps to create associations between the translation and words you already know in your native language.

The best thing about this app is that the most popular textbooks have their own courses in Memrise so you can easily study on your own what you are learning in the classroom and actually prepare yourself for an upcoming test.

App #6: Forvo

Speaking a language with a good accent isn’t a matter of sounding educated or impressing people. Correct pronunciation can change the way you orally perceive a language and it helps you learn faster since hard-to-pronounce words are almost impossible to memorize.

Forvo allows you to quickly access hundreds of thousands of pronunciations stored in its huge database. With over 325 different languages available on it you can sure find the pronunciation of the word you are looking for.

App #7: Khan Academy

For the self-learners and people who want to learn something more than what their classroom provides, Khan Academy is one of the very few apps out there that allows you to learn almost anything for free. Truly free.

With over 10,000 videos and explanations at your fingertips in math, science, economics, history, and more, you can use it to quickly brush up your knowledge of a certain subject or truly prepare for an upcoming exam.

Its content is divided into school year levels so you don’t need to hassle very much to find where you should start, a common problem with many other similar apps.

Final Thoughts

The mentioned apps are only a few from what is out there and certainly there a lot of alternatives that may work for others. Some of the apps provide additional benefits (like offline use or additional exercises) to premium users that pay a monthly fee, but this doesn’t hamper the ability to benefit from using the free version.

6 Tips To Help Speed up Your Android Device

Image

Buying a new Android device is always exciting. There are numerous Android devices available such as Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, Motorola, Sony, and the list goes on. Like every other new brand device, your Smartphone will be running smoothly without any glitches. But sooner or later your sweetheart device starts throwing tantrums, especially the speed issues are majorly experienced.

Even the simple task like opening a browser or switching to another app takes a while making the using experience troublesome. You have already spent so much on the device but you don’t have the heart to sell, what’s the way out of this?

Nobody wants an Android device that works like a snail speed. However, there are simple tricks through which you can speed up your device. No matter which Android device you have, these tricks are extremely helpful and have been proven time and time again. Here are few useful tips to speed up your android device:

Restarting Your Android Device

Restarting your Android phone/device is probably the quickest and easiest solution. Restarting can fix the snail speed and unresponsive device. At times your Android devices become sluggish due to several apps occupying the space and the speed. Restarting your Android handset may not be the permanent solution but it certainly helps in clearing up your device’s resources.

Turning Off Animations

We all like animations, and with the way the Samsung Galaxy S4 is presenting the animations it really improves your devices interface. This not only uses a huge amount of memory but also affects the devices processing power. Turning off the animations on your device will not only speed up the device, but also helps to conserve the battery. Turn off the switch pad in your “developer options” on the phone to speed up your device functioning.

Using The Task Manager To Force Stop Unresponsive Apps

Often times your other Android apps are not used and they are simply sitting and adding up the space in your phone. Since they are not used they freeze up and become impassive, you can force stop these kinds of apps by using the task manager that will free up the RAM on the device to speed up the halted functions.

Uninstalling Unnecessary Apps

This is a major reason behind your device slowing down. With new apps being downloaded everyday, we keep on adding them without looking at the space and not bothering to uninstall the earlier ones. Make a habit to uninstall the unnecessary apps as they are not only using the device storage but also minimizing the speed.

Clearing The App Cache

All Android devices have cache data and with time it piles up and slows your device down. It is possible to manually clean up the cache space but it is pretty time consuming, so to make life easier on yourself download an app cache cleaner that automatically cleans up the space.

Resetting The Device

Resetting might be a great way to speed up your device functioning. Reset your options and see the difference. However, before resetting your device make sure to have all of your pictures and important files backed up.
