Android

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++).

A colleague indicated that he prefers iPhone over android phone because the iPhone is entirely encrypted and all apps download from the Apple store passes thru rigorous process prior being placed on the store.  On the other hand, android phone are not encrypted and you can download apps from anywhere, besides the store; in other words there is little control as to the google store apps as to security.  Finally all who developed apps for iPhone have to pay an anual fee to Apple where as to android no fee - insinuating at one point that a hacker can create an apps load it to google store and all can download it; thus being able to reach millions with ease.

Is there any accuracy to this persons comment? Please advice.

Warning: If your device uses WiFi, it's at risk!
News broke today about the Krack Attack, a new cyber threat that can decrypt and potentially view everything users are doing online. The Krack Attack preys on a weakness in WPA2 protocol. Hackers near the vulnerable devices (Android and Linux are at greatest risk) can retrieve sensitive user data and information.
Steps to Protect:
1. Apply patches as they become available. For phones and computers, the patches will come in the usual update format. For wifi routers, the manufacturer's website will have the patches.
2. Don't use public WiFi, especially for sharing or sending any sensitive information.
3. Double check that you are browsing with HTTPS. If you are unsure, install this plug-in to encrypt your communications with major websites and make your browsing more secure. https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere
4. Otherwise, use Ethernet.

Just recently my apps are using full screen.  I read the articles on how to enable or disable full screen per app, but some of my apps are "optimized for full screen"

I have no idea why this started happening all of a sudden.

My goal is not not use Full Screen at all.

Hi,

I am looking for an API which would enable me to capture a signature and embed it in a PDF file.

A free solution would be obviously the best, but a one time fee would also be ok.

Thanks for all your help,
Rene

i have the above phone and the carrier is Ultra mobile which is a subset of MetroPCS.  Recently I had used up all my data, and I received a data locked error.  On calling support they said that i had to get more data, and I did exactly and said that they needed about 15 minutes to configure it.  But I now can see an incoming sms message, but when I tap on it, it disappears and does not appear at all.  Support says that the problem is my  phone.  Can the experts suggest how to fix this problem.  Thank u and regards.

Hello,

I have made an Android app in Delphi which sends Sms to some phone numbers.

It works well on my phone but at one of my customer (who has Android 7 on his phone ) it works like this:
- it sends about 10-15 SMS-es without error
- then "Android error: java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Sms is not supported" pops up

What can cause the problem at customer's site?
Thank you very much for your help.

We want to do real-time testing for Andriod Cordova App after committing code to the GitHub repository. We are using Monaca right now but it is not very stable. Thier integration to GitHub is in BETA (has been for over a year) and it just does not work well.

Any advice?

I've been within software development for years, so I know how a development project can drift and take months and months and cost 10x more than planned, when doing it the old-fashioned way of hiring a developer and build a back end. I'm planning an app for users to upload audio files and share with other users. I know there are lots of "app builder" platforms out there, but I do not have any experience with them yet...are they stable, do they follow development within ios and android updates? Are they too locked in functionality? The thing I need is pretty basic and I hate to build a backend myself (.net,db,front end), since I know what we need is what many others need eg. login (username/password or use social login), upload audio file, create project etc. Basic stuff, that I would like to layout in a online builder with a nice UI, without touching a single line of code...

I've seen Google and Amazon has backends made for this purpose: https://aws.amazon.com/mobile/

Can anyone tell me if the platform I'm seeking is out there and reliable? Or am I dreaming and would consider a mix of ready-to-go builder + a developer?

I look forward hearing from you all.
