Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to the Osai Effect
Have you ever had so many pictures and videos that your SD Card and Internal memory space both got full? Have you ever woken up one morning only to find out that all your photos and videos are gone. A formatted memory card or a crashed memory card. They both amount to the same thing, though. You lose your files and that sucks! Well, worry no more because we got you covered!
Some Android devices synchronize photos and videos to Google automatically, but in case yours does not, we have just the right thing for you: Dropbox! Although we have had Dropbox as an App of the Week sometime in November, we believe a number of people are yet to benefit from the usage of Dropbox. When using Dropbox, you could turn on the automatic sync where anything captured by your camera gets uploaded automatically. Which means, one does not have to worry about lost data! Other files like songs and documents can also be uploaded and can be downloaded from any device signed into Dropbox with your email address.
We sincerely hope the loss of files stops because that sucks majorly. Thanks for reading, Ciao! Please follow us on Twitter @TheOsaiEffect , on Google+ via +TheOsaiEffect and 7B963F97 on BBM. Read the older post HERE
Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to the Osai Effect
Today is the last day of the month and we have our customary post. Last month’s apps were pretty hot and we had a lot of positive feedback. This month, we have some old apps making reappearances and some new ones making their debut appearance.
At number 5 this month, we have Ebook Reader. ER was the App of the Week a couple of weeks back and we believe it is no surprise that we have it here. eBook Reader lets one download and read electronically published files as well as some native documents. eBook Reader came in handy when we were reading some novels and textbooks. We also used it to read our language lessons.
At Number 4 we a new app that was much anticipated in its release. It stormed the Android market and downloads are already in the millions! We are talking of none other than BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). BBM is a messenger/chat application that delivers messages and other forms of media in real time. Although the original release was fraught with bugs and errors, the latest version removes some and adds some new features like the separation of contacts into categories. BBM is for phones and there is no dedicated app for tablets. However, we got you covered at TOE, shoot us an email at theosaieffect.gmail.com and we will point ya in the right direction 😉
At Number 3 we have one of our old appearances from last month. Our financial app Quickteller comes back better than the beta 😀 There are several new features like the ‘Remember my Verve Card’ and several bugs are fixed. Quickteller at Number 2!
At Number 2 we have Google Translate. Google Translate is all types of awesome as it lets us translate slangs, phrases and even special characters (like Japanese and Chinese) to different languages. It came most in handy when we were talking to our Francophone colleagues and also our Chinese and Russian friends. Google Translate at Number 2!
And finally, at number 1 we have our most useful app for November. We bring you Flash Share again! Flash Share is a free file sharing app that lets you share apps, games, videos, music etc. Flash Share is unavailable on Play store and some phones may not let one install it (Samsungs and Sonys) without checking the ‘Install apps that are not from Google Play’ option in the System settings.
That’s it from us folks, Yoro Shiku!

Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to The Osai Effect.
This week we have one of our most useful and handy apps. As we earlier advised, our ‘App of the Week’ is based purely on our own usage and we advise you to read the synopsis.
The App of this week is called Ebook Reader. ER is capable of reading and opening PDF, docx and most importantly ePub files. Several novels and texts we were looking for had no PDF versions and ER helped us view the ePub in a fun and clear way. It bookmarks where one stops when he closes the app and it is able to change the orientation, brightness and scrolling method (this way seem trivial until you experience how annoying some apps can be).
Although we love EBook Reader, we aren’t without complaints. It sometimes has some little dashes/hyphens on the pages when the memory is low; we would have preferred a ‘hey dude, memory is low, mind closing some apps?’ Message.
All in all though, we love Ebook Reader and we give it a massive 8/10.
NB: We could not find a direct download link online. Please use the Play Store app to search. The icon is as seen below (and ignore the other two icons).
And that’s it from us folks. Goodnight!

Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to The Osai Effect!
This week we decided to have a lil fun with our apps. I mean life is too serious already, the internet should add colour to it don’t ya think?
This week, we have a funny lil app called Tune Me. Pretty sure you can guess what it does already 😀 Tune Me is an app that let’s you autotune your voice and add various effects. The Tuned Voice can be added to a default beat or any mp3 of choice once the Premium version is unlocked.
Tune Me provides a platform for you to have fun in a creative, not-too-restricted way and also to share with friends. We would have put up our project here but……….
And that’s it from us folks, goodnight!

Good morning, Nerds and Nerdesses, welcome to The Osai Effect.
Like we said earlier, we are adding a new section viz App of the Week. The app of the week is judged purely on our own usage and we suggest that you read the synopsis before download. Without further ado, we launch into the breakdown!
Launching this section this beautiful morning, our AOTW is Dropbox! DB is a file cloud app that let’s one save files on their tablets, mobile phones or computers and have access to the saved files on any other device they are logged into which has a Dropbox app. It is also possible to get a link and send to any other user and they would be able to view and download your files. It is also possible to ‘favourite’ files and they would be available for offline access (ie if the file was not originally saved on that device). Dropbox comes with free 2Gb storage, and is very easy to use (although it comes with a digital manual).
Dropbox came most in handy when we wanted to send 25 large files and email was slow and uncertain. Dropbox eliminated all such uncertainties as progress can be monitored when files are being uploaded. It also came very much in handy when we wanted to work on some unfinished files that were saved on our computer which was not with us as at that moment.
And that’s our App of the Week. Thank you for reading!

Hello Nerds and Nerdesses, how are y’all doing?
Today we’re gonna drop a list of our top five apps of October (this doesnt mean the apps were released in October). The apps in this list came in handy most and we encourage every technophobe to download them! Without further ado, straight to the list!
Our number 5 app is One Mobile Market. OMM came in handy when we could not find some particular apps on Google Play or when Play was misbehaving. OMM is also a very wonderful app as it offers some apps we don’t see on Play and the ‘editor’s choise’ is divided into three sections which makes it fun as we have a lot of apps and games to select from. One Mobile Market at number 5!
Our number 4 app is Tube Mate YouTube downloader. Now this app is awesome! It is really annoying when all we can do is watch videos on YouTube and not download them (all these white folks don’t know that our data is expensive abi? I pray MTN should go there). TubeMate solves that problem as it can download the videos in three qualities that you can choose from (720p for super HD and 380p for regular HD). TubeMate at number 4!
Our number 3 app is VLC media player! Yes we know VLC is popular already but there are still a number of us who do not have it. VLC lets you play file types that stock video players cannot open like mkv, m4a, vob, mov, wmv etc. Here is VLC at number 4!
Our number 2 app is Quickteller! Quickteller is a financial app that lets you recharge, transfer funds, check balance and pay bills all from the comfort of your phone! It may be a bit tricky to use if one is not used to financial apps but once you get the hang of it, it sure is awesome. The trick is to activate your Verve card so as to remove restrictions and voila! NB: Quickteller does not work with MasterCard or VISA so GTB and Unity Bank users may want to get alternate cards.
Quickteller at number 2!
And finally our number 1 app is Flash Share! Flash Share is just awesome! When people were struggling to download BBM, we just sent it from a Samsung device through FS! We sent the World War Z file of 1Gb in a matter of seconds with FS! FS does not use any data and it is literally lightning fast! Flash Share works across brands viz Samsung to Tecno, Tecno to Infinix, Infinix to Sony etc. Oh and you can send files to multiple people simultaneously! Flash Share at number 1!
