Today's smartphones are like miniature computers in and of themselves, but compatibility issues mean that it can be difficult to integrate the apps and components you use on your phone with the other devices in your technological ecosystem. Remix OS allows you to access the data and apps on your phone through other devices. If you use your phone extensively for work, Remix OS can make it so you can jump easily from computer to phone and back. And when you just want to kick back and relax, its integration can allow you to stream media to your TV easily or play Android games on a larger screen. One of the disadvantages of an Android operating system is its small screen. Juggling multiple applications at the same time can make your hardware sluggish, and it's impossible to split your screen between numerous apps. By docking your mobile Android device with your computer, you can get more options. Take advantage of the Windows OS and the larger screen afforded by your computer to play multiple games, chat with friends, and surf the web all at the same time. Remix OS also allows you to trade in the touch screen interface that traditional Android apps use for the more precise functions of a traditional mouse and keyboard. Whether you're looking to draft a long and complex text message, manage the files on your phone, or find more precise controls for your favorite games, Remix OS gives you the option. File management is one of the components where Remix OS really excels. Where the management interface apps that come standard with Android devices are often clunky and difficult to use, Remix OS has integrated their own file manager that more closely resembles the advanced settings you'll find in Windows. That makes it easy to sort through your photos and videos, upload them to new devices, and neatly sort them into categorized directories. They've also incorporated a precise screen capture mode that allows you to zoom in on the aspect of windows that you want to capture, saving you time and effort by ensuring you won't have to waste your days cropping and editing the results. Remix OS is primarily an app designed for ease of use, and their designer has made functionality a key component of their interface. Setup is simple, and it allows you to quickly sync your smartphone to a range of different devices that include both traditional computers and Smart TVs. An additional docking station further simplifies the process by allowing you to simply plug and play like you would with any traditional peripheral. Updates occur regularly, and they're automated. As long as you're connected to the internet, you can rest confident knowing that you're always using the newest version of Remix OS.
