Boxes is a free app for Android smartphones that could help us to better organize all of our things. Sometimes we store things in boxes or drawer and, later on, we forget were we put those things. You know approximately where is what you are looking for, but you have to search the whole closet or empty all the boxes to find it.

This app will help you in that case:

  • Use a name for your box o drawer…
  • …and take photos of the thing you put inside

Boxes is really simple to use, you just have to create a box and fill in with everything your are storing inside. When things are small, you can group them over the bed or a table and make one photo, later it is possible to zoom the images and search the items easily.
If you want to delete a box you only have to make a long press on it.


Next time you are searching for something, you  can do it from your smartphone, without messing around all the house.
You can use the app for small items, tools, collectibles, your wardrobe… or everything!

Cajas - Free

Cajas es una aplicación gratuita para móviles Android que nos puede ayudar a organizar mejor todas nuestras cosas. A veces, guardamos cosas en cajas o cajones y después de un tiempo, nos olvidamos donde las habíamos puesto. Sabes más o menos donde dejaste aquello que estas buscando, pero te toca revisar todo el armario o vaciar las cajas por completo para poder encontrarlo.

Esta aplicación te facilita la vida en estos casos:

  • Ponle un nombre a tu caja o cajón…
  • …y haz fotos de las cosas que guardas

Cajas es muy sencilla de usar, solo tienes que crear una caja y empezar a llenarla con fotos de lo que vas a poner dentro. Cuando son muchas cosas pequeñas, las puedes extender sobre una mesa o una cama y hacer una foto de todas ellas, luego puedes ampliar las imágenes que tiene cada caja y buscar cómodamente.
Si quieres borrar alguna caja, la tienes pulsada y ya esta.

screen5screen6La próxima vez que busques algo puedes hacerlo desde el móvil, sin tener que andar revolviendo por toda la casa.
Puedes usarla para cosas pequeñas, utensilios de cocina o herramientas, colecciones, la ropa de los armarios, ¡lo que se te ocurra!

Gear and loading in Barcelona

If you are coming next week to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, probably one thing you don’t want to miss is a good mobile connection. There are four big networks operating in Spain: Movistar, Vodafone, Orange and Yoigo and all of them are offering 4G broadband in Barcelona and other populated cities. Currently, spanish networks are operating in 1800 and 2600mhz, bands 3 and 7 (full world list here). Be sure you have a compatible phone to connect and browse at full speed.

To avoid international roaming cost, your best option is a prepaid card. Law orders to identify every SIM card purchase, you will need your passport to get one. Here is a comparison of the current rates:

4G rates MWC 2014These are “website offers” for individuals, not companies, and in store SIM card prices may vary.
Movistar and Orange have “per day” use rates.
Every network has a data limit, lowering the speed after it is reached.
Only Vodafone includes free voice minutes.
You must pay an initial fee for the SIM card, with a default data plan. Choose a different plan at the store if you need it.

Friends in Barcelona report good coverage with all the networks, but I am trying to get more precise information about it, stay tuned for updates.
Telefonica has published some details about its 4G coverage to the event.

Feel free to link/republish.

Don’t miss Ewan’s post for more useful tips about the MWC.
Thanks for asking Varun!

Sony-Ericsson LiveView in Symbian

I was playing this afternoon with a Nokia E7 and Sony-Ericsson LiveView smartwatch. After some small tweaks I could set the right time at the watch and send some other info.

I did it using latest PyS60 and using this basic code.

I will try to improve the script to send some notifications to the LiveView.
Finally I can use a smartwatch with my Symbian!
