Acrobat Reader is a free program, but does not contain nothing around editing (with small exception). So operations like removing some pages, rotating some or all pages, converting PDF to other format, extracting pages to graphic format like JPEG, merging two and more PDF files etc. are not available in Acrobat Reader. For these you have to either purchase a paid, full version of Adobe PDF or seek for some other tools or options.
This post discuss a variety of ways and methods of removing certain pages from PDF document and doing some other editing operation on such docs.
I’ve got an iPad Mini. It looks great (at some points — even fantastic)! But due to my current situation, I’ll stay with my Android and Gmail and will treat iPad as additional toy. At least for a while. Since I still had an empty slot in Gmail to add one another external mail server, from which I want to get all emails, I tried this trick with my iCloud / me.com / Apple ID mailbox. And failed.
If you’re looking for a quick answer to question “How can I sync my iCloud / me.com mailbox in Gmail“, the answer is quick, but you’re not going to like it: You can’t. Fortunately, there’s a workaround to this problem.
Yes, it seems, that with a little bit help from Vietnameese developers, there is a fairly easy way to download Google Play applications to your PC. Why you would like to do this? There are at least few reasons.
It is a faster way, that does not require Internet connection. You copy a bunch of
*.apk files from your PC to your Android-based device, and install them directly from there, without touching Google Play.

In my humble opinion, responsive design is a future. One layout, carefully designed, will look beautiful and by user-friendly, no matter, which device user will use to view it. Of course, you can craft responsive designed website by hand, but the easiest way is to use some framework. But what about non-framework elements, like for example images? How to style them, what size should they have, to be responsive and look exactly like other, framework elements, on any device?
There are at least few approaches to solve this problem, among which one or two are not that famous.
If you ever encounter problem, that you can’t update (on your mobile device) applicatation compiled with PhoneGap or PhoneGap Build, first what you should do, is to try to uninstall it and then perform fresh install.
If that succeed, any following updates should run without problems.
This is caused, by PhoneGap version change (either manually, if you’re building by-hand, or automatically, if you’re building using PhoneGap Build). This is one of documented bugs in PhoneGap and hasn’t been fixed as of writing this article.
There are many irritiating nerds, on many forums and websites, claiming or tryiny to convince you that their belowed piece of software is able to convert NTFS partition to FAT32 without using data. In most cases this is bullshit and it turns out to be only a huge time waste on installing software, that is only able to achieve such converstion, by formatting drive or that it can’t do that at all.
Formatting means loosing all your data, but those pesky morons just don’t gets this. So, here you have the only known to me method of getting your drive from NTFS to FAT32 under Windows, while keeping your data safe.
Note: Opposite converstion (FAT32 to NTFS) is much, much easier. Take a look at this article for tips on that.
This operation is much, much easier than doing opposite way (take a look at this article). All you have to do under Windows is to execute following command from command line:
convert e: /fs:ntfs
e: represents drive, which you want to convert.
Ever since PhoneGap 2.1.0, every application build with PhoneGap Build always opens all links in WebView on Android. No matter what configuration changes has been done. This is a reported issue, but though we already have PhoneGap 2.4.0, nothing has been actually done around this.
Details and some workaround follows.
This article shows an example, how to respond, when user of your mobile application taps on
Back button and how to exit application, after getting user confirmation, that he or she is willing to do so. It also explains, why you shouldn’t do it at all, if you plan to ship your application to multiple platforms, including Apple iOS.
Often, in many small or very small projects, you include jQuery only to have a conviniend DOM-selectors access via
$(selector) and except this, you don’t use jQuery at all. In cases like that using neither jQuery nor smaller Zepto.js isn’t pretty wise.
Here is an example on how to achieve same effect in pure JS with
Since PhoneGap is used to build mobile applications for many destination platforms, out of one source files package, and since each platform contains many mobile devices, with different screens sizes and orientations, it is fairly hard task to design set of mobile application icons and splash screens to suit all needs.
This post is meant to help you with solving this problem, but it is nothing more than a bunch of links to an external sources plus some comments.
There are various things you have to consider, when developing a PhoneGap application, if you want to control when and how your application’s splash screen will be shown or hidden. This post summarizes all my knowledge in this area. Most information presented here are obvious to more experienced PhoneGap developers, so this post works more like memo to myself.
But it was true… Then I moved to famous Getting Started Guides and actually died! Oh, my f*king goodness! Eclipse? Insane number of SDKs? And then PhoneGap Build has been born and my soul has been saved! :]
As it was announced on 29 February 2012, The Pirates Bay has stopped serving
.torrent files, switching entirely to magnet-links. Reasons for that are unclear and arguments, that it will not cause much troubles, are weak as per me. So I’m pretty happy, that someone has discovered a very easy work-around for this problem. It works like a charm.
