Surf the web using floating browsers
After installing this app, whenever you click a link anywhere on your phone, there will a bubble that silently opens minimized on the side of your smartphone and you can open as many links as you want and they will be silently loading at the side, while you continue to surf the web. Once you finish browsing you can click on the bubble and read those links you have opened and the most useful feature is that it blocks all those intrusive ads and also has a black theme.
Now On Tap is a feature of the built in Google search app in your phone which works when you long press your home button on any screen in your phone. What it does is that, it scans the entire page when you press the button and then returns useful information based on the contents of the current page. You can use this feature in any app and it always returns relevant information like the artist of the song currently playing or the name of the actor in a picture.
This is one of my favorite tricks and I use it every night while I browse through my phone. You may also use your phone for a long time during the night hours or at a dark place but what you do not realize is that your phone may emit a blue light and constant exposure to it may affect your eyes causing strain and difficulty in sleeping.
You can setup the app to automatically impose the blue light filter based on your location or your desired timings and it will trigger based on the conditions. So you can get a peaceful night of sleep without having to worry about using your smartphone for longer periods.
