Multiple Google Accounts on Android

A while back I wrote a post covering how I keep track of multiple gmail accounts in the browser. I promised that I would cover accessing multiple Gmail accounts from your Android phone. This post will show you how to integrate multiple gmail accounts into the core of your Android system in 11 easy steps.

  1. 1Go to your home screen and press the menu button, then select “System settings”
  2. 2Select the “General” tab on the top right and then select “Accounts & Sync” in the list of options. You may have to scroll down to reach counts & Sync.”
  3. 3Select Add account at the bottom on the next screen.
  4. 4On the next screen you see a list of different account options available on your phone. In this case we want to add another google account, so select google.
  5. 5This screen gives you the option of making a new google account or adding an existing one. I want to add an existing account.
  6. 6Fill in your account details and press the right arrow.
  7. 7This next screen wants you to add google+ and a bunch of other stuff which I normally skip because I have them on my central account already.
  8. 8This screen is a waste of time, press the right arrow immediately.
  9. 9The next screen asks you for payment information which most uf probably already have on our central accounts. Press skip.
  10. 10On this screen you decide which google services you want to sync to your phone using the account you’re adding. Deselect unnecessary things like play books and so on which you probably only want to sync to your central account.
  11. 11


    You’re now done adding your account. To switch accounts when in any of google’s apps simply click the top left corner in any of the google services apps like gmail or drive. A list of the accounts you’ve added will show up and you simply select the one you want to use for the session.

Happy googling.

Technology Beyond Words

Successful mobile technology can make life easier and more efficient. But what happens when a device provides us with something we never knew we needed?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is more than a mobile device; it’s a social device, which goes beyond simply communicating and allows users to strengthen relationships with their contacts.

Our YouTube clip of the day shows how one apologetic daughter used the capabilities within her phone to tell her dad what words could not.

“Go beyond words to express yourself. Let your heart speak.”

iPhone Black Market Bonanza Video

Has the iPhone launch day hysteria gotten out of control? This video makes it seem like it’s all about black market hawking and desperate people.

Let us know what you think in the comments.

Casey Neistat is a big tech nerd who slept outside at the launch of the original iPhone. With the subsequent launches he’s noticed an increasing number of non-fanboys waiting in line for iPhones on launch day. Here is a short video he made that documents this side of the iPhone launch day lines.

Cheat Sheet for the Apple Keynote!


If you were one of the many people unable to watch the live streaming of the Apple Keynote, or if you were so frustrated with the video quality that you gave up on it entirely, fear not.

We have your cheat sheet right here.

With the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, hailing the new products as “the biggest advancement in iPhone history” you should definitely be excited!

The long awaited iPhone 6 was finally revealed, and with it, the iPhone 6 Plus.

The iPhone 6, while the smaller of the two new phones, will boast a larger screen than that of the 4 inch iPhone 5 at 4.7 inches. It will also be quite a bit thinner at just 6.9mm. With the new A8 chip, the iPhone 6 will run up to 25% faster than its predecessors.

The Look

The new look of both models is sleeker, featuring rounded corners, and will come in the same colors as the previous model: space grey, gold & silver. Fans may be disappointed to learn that Apple did not bring on the sapphire glass to the iPhone 6, but will instead feature “ion strengthened glass”. Thankfully, it will be more scratch resistant than previous models.

The iPhone 6 Plus will be the largest iPhone to date with a screen size of 5.5 inches, and a display of over 2 million pixels, that’s 185% more than the iPhone 5s.

Software Updates

With news phones, comes a new operating system. As expected, the all new iOS8 will come with an abundance of new features. Users will be able to share video, voice & location to any message, and be able to mute and leave group messages, a feature that was highly requested the past few years. Family Sharing will allow you and up to five members in your family share purchases, a family calendar, family photo album, and approve your child’s spending.

Bigger Screen Means Better Apps

Apple has taken advantage of the larger screen by redesigning apps for landscape mode. Mail will now look more like it does on your MacBook, displaying your inbox and messages in a single view. Unlike a lot of the competition, a higher megapixel camera was not a priority, though both cameras will focus twice as fast as the iPhone 5s camera. Both iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus will be offered in 16GB, 64GB, & 128GB models.

Improved Productivity and Connectivity

Apple has also made it easier to connect to all of your Apple devices with Continuity, allowing you to answer calls, send text messages, and pick up where you left off on any of your devices. You will also have the Health app which connects to your new Apple Watch which we’ve already covered here and Passbook to utilize Apple Pay which we’ve also written about here.

Available this week!

With the new phone already available for pre-order, and shipping this Friday!, you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on the newest Apple tech.
