Qualcomm has been into the Play Store already with an app called Battery Guru, which is an app that makes small tweaks to improve the battery life of the device after learning how to use the device. Now the company has come up with a new app called Glance that uses battery Guru App in-order to build an intelligent lock screen that will be launched every time when the user turns on his phone’s screen.
Glance is an intelligent app that will make its user work easier with displaying the frequent contacts, so that you won’t have to scroll through the contacts each and every time you make a call, it will display the apps that the users might want to use by the user, this might be probably done by noting the frequency of the apps used (just a guess!) and also displays the upcoming appointments and events along with the weather report.
The user has the option of customizing the app and organize thing by them self manually also, it also displays all the notifications that the user has received from the last view, this is done every time the user turns on the screen of their device and from there the user can use the glance or go to Home and access their regular home screen. This Glance app uses the Snapdragon Battery Guru app to understand the user’s behavior and then suggest the contacts and the relevant apps for the users, so the user needs to have the BatteryGuru app running on their device already or else they have to download and install it.
Features of Snapdragon Glance App
- Make phone calls, read call log, read contacts: quickly call or text your contacts
- Messages: show number of unread SMS messages
- Read calendar: show next calendar event
- Location (approximate): retrieve local weather information
This app is free to download and is a Beta version and should be working on most of the Snapdragon powered devices. So are you downloading this app? Hit the Google Play Store link here and download it. We did notice that the smartphone which run on the Mediatek chipset weren’t able to download and install this app, but the Snapdragon powered ones too, for e.g. LG G2, weren’t in the list of the devices supported.
