I have a Dell 5810 workstation. I just added a usb bluetooth plug/dongle. My goal is to transfer photos that I took with my android cell to a folder on the 5810. I am sure it is a darn simple thing to do, but not without any instructions. I am lost. The product is  a Zexmte bluetooth module. It does say that the computer and the cell are connected. I just don't know how to proceed from here.

Experts, please note that I must get some sleep so will be unable to try your suggestions for a few hours. But try them I will as soon as I am available. The reason for needing this ability is that frequently I take perhaps 30 or 40 shots of one vehicle and need easily get them onto my desktop without the removal of the micro sd card. My phone is a Samsung S9+

The path below is where sync to:

I need an automated way to sync files to a "Portable Media Player" connected to a Windows 10 PC.

The "Portable Media Player" is actually as Samsung Galaxy Note 5: an Android device.

Drag and drop works just fine, but I need to truly automate the process.

I can use VBA built in to MS Access, VB script or even a good fashioned batch file.

NOTE: I use SyncBack to synchronize some folders on my system, but it will not recognize the path to the Note5.

android 7
automatic call recorder
free version
app version 5.42.1

recordings were good then I noticed last recording was at a low volume
Maybe in a version upgrade
volume is lower which is very difficult to hear
If I pay for paid version, do you think this will fix.

I'm on Office365
I have a Samsung tablet , I want a decent signature with a logo and certain format.

On the outlook app , the logo can't be copied and the format changes once I hit save.

OWA doesn't work well on the tablet.

The regular email app on device isn't good enough.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

There are many places in android that it could have been disabled.

settings->apps->airbnb->Notifications-> set as priority.

I have an Asus RT-88U 3100 Ac router..about a year old.
I t is connected to CCI modem which is the internet provider.
I also have powerline  extenders for to plug into the walls in separate rooms for to pick up wifi instead of wireless.
Recently these extenders have not been working properly.
The android box that I was using became frozen and cannot be reset.
Then the WAN  connection on the router stopped working;and I had to return to wireless everywhere.
The light on the WAN indicator is always red now,
I cannot use anothe LAN as a WAN connection.
Finally I connected a cable from the WAN connection on the router to a LAN connection on the same router.
It still remained red
Does this mean that it is the ASUS router WAN connection that is at fault;and do you have any other suggestions?
Thank you,
Leo Boyle

My Galaxy Note 4 (already updated to latest Android) tends to lose
connectivity to GPS (even though the connection to cellular/mobile
data network seems to be intact) while driving for 3 to 30 secs.

I'm using Waze.  The disconnection can happen even on a bright
sunny day (ie don't have to be cloudy/rainy days) or in open
highway (ie not while going through tunnels).

The same SIM card was previously used on my Galaxy Note 2 for
for almost a whole year previously & I never had this issue.

Is this a known issue with Note 4 or the Telco ?  Maybe one way I
can test this is to use the Note 4 as a hotspot (tethering) to an
iPhone & test to see if Waze/GPS  disconnects intermittently:
map is still there but there's a red alert message that 'connection
to GPS is disconnected' at the top of the screen.

I only noted 2 changes:
1. I switch from Note 2 to Note 4 at around the time I disposed
    the old Honda Airwave to Toyota Sienta hybrid: not sure if
    there's something in Sienta that interferes
2. Note4 tends to get very heated up while Note2 is not that
    hot while Waze is in use: I've since taken out the backcover
    of the Note4 (& used scotch tapes to hold the battery & SIM
    card in place) when in use so that the heat dissipates

Need large display area tablet which is pretty low cost

I will be giving tours and need a cheap tablet with a large display area. I think Android would do the trick due to the higher cost of iPads.

I need to have a WiFi connection and the ability to scroll through images, which will be hosted on my website. I do not need much at all in terms of memory or fancy hardware.

I would consider used, as well, for a lower price.

Even old versions of Android OS are fine, at least I think so.

What is the largest display area for a Tablet?

How about Windows? Acer?


BUT, I need a large display area. Are there any enhanced display options which make it easier to show a small group the images? This kind of upgrade (to a less antiquated version) I would consider, IF it meant the display was easier to see.

So, what can you suggest for me?

Thanks

New info...

This one seems pretty large and pretty cheap:

Support the build.gradle configured with compileSdkVersion 25. Should the dependencies be run in same version, ie 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.4.0'  ?


In resource\XML, there is 28 - 25 to choose from. Does it mean the android apps will be test to run under api 25 - 28 ?

Can I say my Android app will be compiled in v25 and will be tested in platform 25 - 28 ?

Which UI toolkit should I use?  My goals: I want the most modern looking and up-to-date GUI look and feel.  To me, this probably means the sorts of things one sees in mobile apps, and sometimes on well-designed web-pages.  But I have a requirement that this GUI be able to run on a windows desktop environment -- actually, probably on a touch screen tablet windows machine like the Surface.    I would like the technology to be portable, so that perhaps it might also someday run on an android device, or on a web-page.   But of first priority is that it can run on a windows touch screen device.    So much of the cool stuff I see is oriented to iOS or Android -- how do I keep up, and be just as modern and appealing, but able to run on a windows machine?   My primary question is the technology, the toolkit or SDK;  a secondary interest might be for a prototyping tool that works well with the chosen system.  Thanks for your help and opinions!

I would like to create something for an android tablet similar to a windows batch file.  I have users that will lose their connectivity to the datacenter.  It may be the internet connection or it may be the vpn.  I would like for my users to click on an icon and be able to see if they have vpn connectivity back to the datacenter.
basically it would be a batch file that would ping an internal ip address

ping 192.168.1.1 for example
is there anything like this to give my users quick intelligence if they are connected or not

Is it possible to write an iPhone App ( and/or an Android phone App ) which acts as an "Access Point" -- that is, it transmits its own Wifi network.  For example, then a nearby PC could connect to that wifi network and receive images sent from the iPhone?

I'm not sure if the term "Hot Spot" is the same as what I call an "Access Point" -- perhaps it is the same.

Reason: I want to make an App to transmit directly from iPhone to a nearby PC (without the need for any outside wifi network, and without the need for an internet connection).  I have an App now to do this, but it relies on the PC to run 'hosted network' to create the wifi network.  Unfortunately, many PCs have wifi cards that are not up to do this, so essentially my App only works with certain PCs -- which is not cool.  Or we have to add a USB mini-router to the mix, which would seem simple, but its just enough of a hassle to turn off my users.

The correct technical solution is probably to have the iPhone create the network -- if this is possible -- and if it is "allowed",   I saw some information once that implied that while this is technically possible, it may be that your service provider may be able to limit whether or not your smartphone is able to act as an "Access Point" (or "Hot Spot" -- if the same).

Thanks if you can shed light on the possibilities.

Hi,
Exchange 2013: got an issue with a VIP mailbox which the user got synced to 2 android phones with gmail sync active, and a number of Outlook clients. Contacts number rose to new heights (308500 contacts) with a large number of duplicated contacts. Moreover, permissions on the mailbox were weird: cannot delegate access to some users. ActiveSync on mobile devices did not work. Moving the mailbox to another DB didn't help, nor mailbox repair requests. Tried some scripts (i.e. https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/office/Removing-Duplicate-Items-f706e1cc) but they eventually produced some 500 contacts of little help (no tel numbers on many of them) while user reported he got more than 1500. MFCMapi incurred in the same error as newly configured Outlook client.

In a nutshell, I managed to get a working mailbox deleting all contacts after exporting the whole 308000 Contacts with new-mailboxesportrequest. Mailbox dumpster still shows all of them.

I need some way to extract contacts and/or sort them from the PST, or some hints on how to proceed to export all contacts in whatever format. Maybe some has had a chance to try third party softwares ?
thanks!

Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).
