  • Then, you will tap on Plus button to turn it to Auto mode.
  • Now, you will see a screen and you will mark Don’t ask me again option.

The default language is English, but you can change it if you want.

The application will also allow you to detect a QR code and open it in a browser, bookmark or share it.

Also, an email address can be detected and you can choose to compose an email, add a contact or share the email address.

When the application detects a phone number you can call the number, compose a message, add a contact or share the number.

For text, you have the translate option or share option.

Whenever a new flagship device is out, you can expect Octavian to get it and make the most out of it. Happy owner of a new Galaxy S4, he also happens to be a World Champion at Karate, his other passion :)
