Oh, the holidays. However you prefer to celebrate winter (I'm a Festivus man myself), the end of December is a great time to relax and collect your thoughts for the year ahead.

A few minutes of tuning in now will make your life noticeably easier throughout 2023. Think of it as a gift to yourself, a gift that keeps on giving, and most importantly, one that doesn't cost you a dime. .

In case you missed any of them in the first round or just didn't have time to try them all, here are some of my favorite Android tips for boosting Android Intelligence productivity in 2022.
