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++).

Dear Experts,

I have a client using Office 365 but recently his calendar events cannot be edited.  The edit button is replaced with a trash bin.

We tested on two other user accounts, they can edit the calendar invite.

Is there a setting that is different in the user settings of Office 365 or Outlook 2016?

How to setup Samsung Email on your Android Phone
This video tutorial shows you the steps to go through to set up what I believe to be the best email app on the android platform to read Exchange mail.
 

01. Get the app on your phone

The first step is to make sure you have the Samsung Email app on your phone. You can download it from the play store.

02. Launch the app

Start the Samsung email application

03. Add Account

Next you will need to add your exchange email account to the app by entering your email address, account password and server credentials

04. Security

You will need to say okay to several security screens.

05. Selecting how much and how many emails to sync

Next you will want to select how much email you want to sync to your device.  This will also determine how long your sync will take.  The more email you want to sync the longer it will take to sync, at least the first time.

06. Change the settings of your Account

In the next step, you will have the opportunity to setup how your email will sync, what folders/subfolders you want to sync, and other settings in your email.

Hi, so I've got an Ionic 3 app which has a native camera plugin and onesignal plugin as well for notifications.

The native camera plugin works fine in Ionic View or DevApp, and onesignal works when build it to an APK and run it natively on my Android phone.

However, when I use an emulator to run it, even on IOS, it comes up with cordova_not_available. And even the cameras don't work. i run the command

ionic cordova run android or ionic cordova run ios

Emulator shows up but the issue is that cordova doesn't seem to be compiled in. Thus causing cordova plugins to fail.

What can possible be the issue? I've removed all the plugins and android/ios platform, re-installed an still the same.

It's kind of difficult to develop the OneSignal notification when I can't run it with the emulator.

Anyone who has come across this, please advice.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 (but soon to upgrade to Note 8). When I go travelling I always take with me my trusty Nikon D7100 digital SLR with 18-85mm lens. Smartphones can take great photos these days but are still lacking due to their lens.

Conversely, my Nikon camera, although a very good camera, is heavy, cumbersome, and I also need to bring the case and charger.

Further, I can't backup to cloud, edit, or share (email, Whatsapp) my pictures directly from the SLR camera. For this I'd need to bring a laptop with me, whereas with my phone I can do these three things from the phone. Also my phone can GPS-tag the photos, whilst to do this on my Nikon I'd need to buy a separate GPS unit to attach it to the camera, thereby making it even more cumbersome.

Viewing recently taken photos on a smartphone screen is much more pleasurable, not to mention the pinch-to-zoom. Also, my phone these days has more free storage space than my camera has in total.

So, to my question... Is there a way that I can have the best of both worlds? Does there exist some sort of 'cradle', where I can attach my current Nikon lenses, and a shoulder strap, and then just slot in the phone to turn it into a fully functional DSLR camera?

As for connection between the phone and the 'thing', I initially thought WiFi, but I think that this would cause a Osh with the viewfinder, so probably USB-C would be best. Plus, with a cable you could potentially or a battery inside the thing which could be used to charge …

Greetings, experts!

After 14 years of using various incarnations of Windows Phone and Windows Mobile, I've resigned myself to the inevitable fact that Windows Phone is dead. So, I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S8, and I've successfully exported my Contacts from Windows Live and imported them into my Android Phone.

But, I don't see any way to export my Calendar information so that I can import that into the Android phone. I have many years worth of data in my Calendar, and I really don't want to lose that. It's still stored on office.live.com, but what is the best way to get that into my new Android?

Thanks!

We just started using a VPN.  When I entered the information for the VPN I now get the message "Working Offline" and I can no longer send/retrieve email.  I use Outlook 2010 https://outlook.office365.com/mapi/emsmd.

How do I fix this?  I run my entire life out of Outlook.  It syncs to my Android phone:  keeps all of my appointments, contacts, and email.  If I cannot access these things on my computer and still need to sync with my phone.

Calendar permissions shared through a security group.  Normal access is from Outlook where data can be accessed.

Objective is now to add to an Android.  The account is disabled for security reasons and the password is unknown.  Reluctant to change the password as other uses and access are unknown.

How can I add this to an Android?

Hi, having an issue where the Android phone I am testing my Google Play Store link from has a different result from two different domains, not sure why?

On my staging setup, Google play doesn't seem to register that I have already purchased the App, but on the clients live site it recognises that the App has already been installed, IOS devices work perfectly on both domains.

Device and browser information of the Android phone my client has tested with:
https://whatsmybrowser.org/b/UEAUC3M

From live site:


http://mynonoi.com/about-nonoi.html Google Play button links to:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lighstromo.nonoithekakapo

Result:
Google Play from mynonoi.com
From new staging site

http://sandbox.digiscape.co.nz/nonoi/ Google Play button link to:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lighstromo.nonoithekakapo

Result:
Google Play from staging server
A point in the right direction or troubleshooting advice would be great, has anyone experienced this before, if so how did you fix it?

My home Wi-Fi can't access certain websites and would forever load until it throws up an error state. When I'm connected via ethernet, it works fine, so I know the Wi-Fi has issues. I also want to add that my printer normally prints via Wi-Fi and lately it hasn't been connecting. I'm having to hardwire my printer to my Macbook.

Notes:
  • The devices I'm using are Macbook and Android phone.
  • This problem started roughly three months ago. No changes have been made to my Wi-Fi (that I know of).
  • I tried changing the DNS. It worked for a day but now the problem continues to exist.
  • I've reset the modem/router.
  • I've tried accessing aforementioned websites on different browsers. Same problem.

We currently have MaaS360 and want to come away from that due to the limited functionality and lack of helpful features. We would require something that provides more control over the device. So that we can allow and restrict apps as necessary.

EDIT: We also push 3 apps currently and would require that feature as well. Something does a fairly good job at auditing the devices within the company.

I have a related question because airbnb app only shows 9 items in download folder (newest nine).
Older items with same name have no picture.
I can not attach these items.
Airbnb does not recognize these files as images.

So it is an airbnb app error.

Hello,

I wrote an Android App in Delphi.

I noticed the some applications are installed directly under root directory e.g. /sdcard/AnkiDroid or /sdcard/doubleTwist.
However my app is installed somewhere else (I think /sdcard/Android/data).

How can I change it? Or if I can't how can I make the installation make a folder in the root directory?
I need the user to copy a file there so as my app would parse it.

Thank you very much!
