What’s On My Phone – 2020 (on Note20 Ultra)

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

Hey guys karan here from moby scrub and in this video i'm gonna talk about everything that i have on my phone how i have it set up how i use the widgets the shortcuts the gestures and all the apps that i have installed on my phone now one thing you should know that i'm using nova launcher to set this up which is a good thing because as long as you have an android phone you'll be able to get this exact look if you wanted just one thing that the home screen setup itself i'll talk about that towards the end of the video so let's start with what i have on my home screen first

These are the widgets that i use and these are apps that i use most frequently the widgets are from frizzy kwgt widget pack all links in the description below and it's a pretty functional widget so this right here takes me to the clock this over here takes me right inside my calendar this is just weather information this talks about how much my music has progressed of the current track that's playing on the left i get the album art i can play pause i can skip tracks and here

I can just control the media volume then i've got two widgets which is for instagram and facebook again very simple stuff and i do get my calendar entry of what's coming next and then i've got these apps that i use very often there's youtube music chrome google camera gallery and phone because you know you've got to call people now i don't have whatsapp for example because that actually is so frequent that i just use a gesture to call it it's that simple a two finger swipe down

And i get it again something that you can activate using nova launcher now let's talk about this camera piece here i can click on it and get directly inside the photo mode but i can also long press and press on video to get directly inside video and this is really helpful for me i also have two additional gestures one is to be able to add a task on the fly so i just have to rotate my fingers anti-clockwise on the home screen and i can add a task i use todoist for it and i'll talk more about it later in the video and then if i want to

Lock my screen i just rotate clockwise and the screen gets locked additionally i also have some tools on the edge panel like the calculator this is extremely handy because you know i can pretty much be on any app and i can call this edge panel right out and then there are multiple edge panels there are some tools for snipping you know if i want like a screenshot of a particular section i can use one of these i can make a gif real quick and then this is my clipboard so everything i copy gets stored in this

Clipboard tool right here and then again back to the calculator but that's because i'm using the galaxy note 20 ultra which comes with the edge panel built in there are quite a few apps third-party apps that do this i'll leave a link in the description below and before i jump into the apps that i have installed i just want to talk about how i access my notification tray i've got bottom quick settings and that gives me access to my notifications as well as my settings with a swipe at the bottom

This is a lot more useful and it's easy because you know you could be pretty much on any app and you don't have to stretch all the way to do this i could just swipe from the left or the right edge and it comes up all right so now let's talk about the apps that i have on my phone and it's important to note the way i have grouped them is either in folders or as tabs like work home and payments so payments obviously has all my money transfer or virtual

Wallet apps home has all the apps to control my smart devices like lights speakers you know assistants like google assistant or amazon alexa and then these are the work apps that i use and then these are the regular apps and if you want to know how to do all of this it's really simple go into nova settings go into app drawer and then scroll all the way down to draw groups go here and now you can create folders or tabs also a very important trick that

I do is i go into app drawer and then i go ahead and hide apps so i select apps that i just don't want to see they're there in the phone by default and you can't do anything about them you see them every day on your app drawer so you can just hide those and that way they never show up in your app drawer and then it's just cleaner you know you've got lesser icons to deal with all right and now let's talk about the apps that i have on my phone comms which is communications entertainment games and google

Nothing new in these four folders it's pretty standard i'll talk about icons in kwgt towards the end order online is just for food ordering so again nothing great over there productivity is an interesting one so i like to keep myself very busy and i've got a lot on my plate all the time and being productive is the key to be able to do all of that and these are the apps that i use to keep myself on top of things so i use google keep notes for quick short-term non-critical to-do's i do them today and

I forget about them tomorrow even if i don't do them it's not a big deal but they just remain inside google keep so google keep is just for that but for all my critical to-do's i use todoist this is where i'm actually able to create projects within each project i can have sub-projects and then each project can also have sections each section can then have tasks and then each task can have subtasks as well so it gets really really comprehensive and

This works for me very well and adding a task is really easy so you just tap on the plus button and say you know pick up stuff you can just type in the date and it will automatically assign it to that day so it's saturday on third you can give it a time so 8 pm you'll get a reminder 30 minutes before you can attach a priority let's say p1 is the priority so the flag goes automatically and you can assign it to a particular project by just adding hash so hash let's say house it's a house

Chore and then just say done and this is what i was trying to do on my home screen so if i turn anti-clockwise i immediately get that task adding capability so while i used to do is to track my work i use notion for my actual workflow so for example my video pipeline i'm able to maintain a list of all my videos over here and then i can access pretty much any of my scripts so for example the soundbar review that's going to come up pretty soon i have my script right here and i

Can use all my notes from here to shoot my video and i keep track of what's happening uh you know the tags whether i have it scripted or published or not what month what date i'm going to launch it and even as a product manager in my other job role you know i can have my design pipeline upfront right here i can move things in different stages view it as by status or by boards it's really complicated and really comprehensive so you really need to know what you're

Doing and there are quite a few videos out there explaining notion and everything it can do so if this is something that interests you go for it and i use samsung notes to jot down anything that comes to my mind instantly you know some things just require a pen and a paper and that's where this comes into play of course i'm using the note 20 ultra so i have access to my uh s pen right here which i use a lot

And as you can see i do use it quite a bit and this is how i'm able to keep track of ideas which i can then migrate over to notion to furnish them even better now there's also a task keto that i haven't used as much i'm still exploring so i won't talk about that much but medium is very important so essentially it's just a content app there are articles they're written by some really smart people in the industry they know what they're talking about and the content is just aces in my book

You know it's not the regular publication stuff that you can find pretty much anywhere lingering on the internet this is good stuff guys but why i have it under productivity is pretty important it's because the kind of content that i'm subscribed to helps me get better at my work it teaches me a lot of these life hacks tips and tricks just to stay inspired and do really well for yourself it works for me guys uh that's all i can say so i've subscribed to the full year and that's how you get to read unlimited

Number of articles but just get it it's really great all right when it comes to social i have a pretty sad social life i do not use these apps at all actually i just use instagram maybe for research or some entertainment sometimes but i don't use facebook or linkedin as much um from a utility perspective i've got a couple of things here and so i'll talk about just a few of these real quick first one is one hand operation plus that's really handy for samsung phones you can basically use it to navigate you

Can use it to you know access some settings you can use it to basically some gestures on the edges can be added to make your phone use even smarter the next thing i use is when low so let's say you took a video that's really high quality and when you share and you tap on whatsapp the quality is actually reduced by whatsapp you know they apply their own compression technique which is not very cool you can tap on windlow you can do the trimming right here and then you can say

Continue and then it processes this video and it'll try to maintain the best quality possible that you can then share over whatsapp and whatsapp will not deteriorate the quality of that video and obviously you can use it not just for whatsapp videos but also for instagram stories facebook stories and whatsapp status updates and all that the next thing i want to talk about is airdroid which i use to transfer files between my phone and pretty much any computer

Whether it's a laptop macbook desktop pc all i have to make sure is that my computer and my phone are on the same wi-fi network and i just enter this url in the browser hit enter i get this interface and then i can you know copy and paste files left right and center it's really good stuff then i have aod notify which i use for notification purposes you see all these new phones they don't have any way of notifying that you've got a notification the led notification is gone

And so i rely on aod notify to light up my screen with an always on display notification it tells me which app what content and it stays on for a while plus it looks really cool so that's what i use aod notify for and then i already talked about bottom quick settings which is this app right here which is you know all of this all right and now let's talk about the wallpaper apps the icon packs and the kwgt widget packs i have so these are my all-time favorite

Wallpaper apps most of them are about abstract wallpapers but i do keep one app called crispr for the real photographs as wallpapers very high quality stuff right here and you know again joy walls and all unusual wallpapers wall rod they have these abstract wallpapers that i can then use for customizations with beautiful icon packs and kwgt widgets and just make my home screen look more cool and maybe more useful so yeah that's pretty much what i have but let's talk about the icon packs

Now these are some of my all-time favorite icon packs that i have i either like icon packs that have shadows or are neomorphic in design or have gradients so these are my favorite icon packs and lastly talking about the kwgt widget packs i have so i'm a huge fan of neomorphic or shadows right so i've got shadow kwgt frizzy and um dusk kwgt widgets which are of that nature i love gradients so i've got exquisite magenta and frizzy

You know doing that for me and then the new ios style widgets that have come out there are some called smart ios widgets the sugar cubes kwgt widgets and the fusion for kwgt which offer quite a few of those new ios widgets and guys that's pretty much it that i wanted to talk about in terms of how i have my phone set up what apps i use what tools i employ to ensure that i'm able to use my phone in a more you know smart way all the shortcuts that i have to get to different apps so yeah but i did promise

You that i'll talk about my home screen setup so it's really simple i'll leave the link in the description below for the wallpaper this is bladient icon packs and this is frizzy kwgt widgets so again all links in the description i'll leave a backup to my nova file so you can just install that or restore that and i leave the exports for these widgets as well so you can just download them and apply hopefully that will work for you and

That's it guys thank you for watching if you've got any questions feel free to drop them in the comment section below as always don't forget to drop a like hit that subscribe button and that bell icon i'll see you guys in the next one you
