Many folks don’t know that you can change the app launcher on their Android phone. There are many good launchers to choose from and one of the most recent (popular) is Niagra. What is cool about Niagra is that you can launch any of your apps from the home screen (with one hand); without having to scroll through screens as you most often do with other launchers.
The traditional home screen we know was made more than a decade ago, where phone screens were smaller than your credit card. Smartphones keep growing, but not your fingers. The minimalist Niagara Launcher makes everything accessible with one hand and lets you focus on what matters.

Every mainstream Android home screen app looks and behaves almost exactly like Google’s Pixel Launcher. It’s the trendsetter, like the Nexus Launcher before it. But when all your options are modeled after the same thing, that really takes the “custom” out of “custom launcher.”
If your Chromebook supports the installation of Android apps, then I encourage you take a look at (download and install) the Android app “Cx File Explorer”. The built-in file explorer (or file manager) in the Chrome OS has a lot to be desired; especially, when connecting to drives you have in the cloud (such as Google Drive, One Drive, Box and Dropbox) or when trying to connect to your network shares on your home network. I featured “Cx File Explorer” in another blog post (click here) and one of the things I wanted to experiment was to see how it performed on a Chromebook. Well, long story short… It is awesome. There is one thing you will need to do if you have an SD card installed in your Chromebook. In order for Cx File Explorer to see the SD card, go into the setting and toggle on, “Show system storage”. Once you do that, you can access the files on your SD card through the system files. In my case, once I toggled “on” the “Show system storage” setting, rebooted the Chromebook, the SD card showed up in Cx File Explorer’s home screen.
What I found with Cx File Explorer is that it works just as well as on my Chromebook as my Android smartphone. Definitely is a nicer file manager than what is built into the Chrome OS to the point that moving files around, etc… is much more easier and makes more sense.

Parental controls on phones evolved a lot over the years. Back in the day, devices had kid modes that turned off the UI basically entirely, trapping the child in a specific app. Unfortunately, kid mode is easy to work around and it doesn’t work really well.

As a side note to this, I am a subscriber to Locast. I recommend you give this a try first. If you are able to bring in the local TV stations, with the app, I recommend you sign up and donate $5 per month (that will eliminate the Locast ads, which can be a nuisance). All-In-All, I love Locast… You can also watch TV with your Locast account on any device (including your desktop computer). Locast is based on your location and is a very cheap way to get the main basic channels.
