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++).

I'm doing an Android App that sends post request to my server which the target file is php file. Normal data is sent correctly but the problem starts when sending symbols like œ,Õ,€,ã. These are just replaced by ? so now I can't correctly interpret the data because it is not in a correct form. Here is my Android code I'm using
InputStream ByPostMethod(String ServerURL){
        InputStream DataInputStream = null;
        try{
            // Post parameters
            

            // Preparing

            URL url = new URL(ServerURL);

            HttpURLConnection cc = (HttpURLConnection)
                    url.openConnection();
            // Set timeout for reading InputStream
            cc.setReadTimeout(5000);
            // Set timeout for connection
            cc.setConnectTimeout(5000);
            // Set timeout to POST
            cc.setRequestMethod("POST");
            // Set it to true as we are connecting for input
            cc.setDoInput(true);

            // Opens the connection link
            cc.connect();

            // Write data (bytes) to the data output stream
            DataOutputStream dos = new DataOutputStream(cc.getOutputStream());

            dos.writeBytes(PostParam);
            // Flushes data outpu stream.
            dos.flush();
            dos.close();

            // Getting HTTP response code
            int response = cc.getResponseCode();

            // if Response code is 200/Ok then read InputStream

Today, almost every business you interact with on a daily business — right from your grocer to your bank — have their own dedicated mobile application or are vying to create one for themselves. It’s, therefore, no surprise that apps can make you a lot of money — millions (or even billions) of dollar

I received advice on another question I posted here that I could do without antivirus in Android:

What is the best anti-virus for Android (paid or unpaid)?

But I don't understand that advice because from what I've read Android is the OS for smartmobiles that is most targeted by hackers.

For example, would I be safe if I download apps from other places than Google Play?

And for using apps like for Uber, map apps other than Google Maps etc., would I be safe without anti-virus?

 1. Google Pixel 1 Android Phone backed up to GOOGLE online account
 2. most recent GOOGLE online backup does NOT have the last two days
     of PHOTOS since the phone was not connected to the wifi/data network
 3. screen cracked, cannot access touchscreen
 4. need a way to plug an external keyboard
     to export above #2 last two days of PHOTOS
 5. only phone ports are usbC and a 3.5mm audio,
     therefore below "micro usb to usb cable" will NOT work

To hire android app developers, you need to know if the person you are looking for is suited for the job. When you surf the web for “Android app developers for hire” or anything close to that you will find results listing sites where programmers and their data and background is already included.

In the organization there is an internal ADFS and an external ADFS Proxy.
Being connected through the Wi-Fi in the internal network, from the mobile devices using an office365 account and the Outlook application can not send the mails.
If I use a notebook or PC if I can do it but from mobile devices, no.
If I connect from the mobile via 4G or from an external network if it works.
The difference is that when I'm on the internal network the requests go to the internal ADFS and when I'm out of the network the requests go to the external ADFS Proxy.
Can there be any restrictions in the internal ADFS that blocks active sync communication from cell phones?
We validate the permissions in the network, routing and only see traffic to port 443 to different external IP addresses of lync, office and outlook.

I have just bought a Nokia 7+ running on Android One (currently Oreo) to replace my Samsung Galaxy S5 and I am trying to set up Contacts with frustrating results.
  • First I added my accounts including myname@outlook.com which is the account I use for most emails and where I sync my contact list
  • Next I tried to sync the contacts but only one contact succeeded in syncing.
  • I thought that maybe I needed to prime my phone so I imported the contacts to my phone (outlook.com account) using a csv file and about 400 imported fine
  • When I checked my PC my contact list had now doubled - my phone had synced the contacts I had added and duplicated them
  • I then deleted duplicates from my PC getting it back to 400 odd numbers again
  • When I checked the phone it is now up to over 1100 numbers - with many triples

I am assuming that Google would not allow me to select my outlook.com account if it wasn't capable of syncing with it, and the fact that my 400 contacts has now miraculously grown to over 1100 means that it is syncing somehow, but I don't understand how it's working. Can anyone shed any insights into what I am doing wrong?

Hi Experts,

I'm a new Android user and recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB for myself. All worked fine for a while on Google Play website, where I could download any app from the store and have it installed on my phone. Recently though, I'm getting the following error whenever I try to download an app via the Google Play website:

Error on Google Play Website

I've checked and triple checked that my Phone is associated with my Google Account. So why am I getting this error and how can I resolve it? I've tried it in all browsers installed on my Windows 10 Pro box.  Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Same problem with each browser. I did nothing with my Google Account that I'm aware of that should cause me to have this error. The phone is connected via USB and I can download any app I want using the Play Store icon on the phone, just not from the website?

Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can resolve it, please?

Many thanks for any help.

After many years of using iPhone's, I'm now a new Android Phone user and have just purchased a Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX for myself and I'm finding the transition to be difficult.

A mate of mine on EE has explained how to get apps from the Google Play store but rather than bug him privately all the time with my endless questions, I thought I'd raise a question here and hopefully get some answers to my most pressing questions at the moment.

1.  On my iPhone, I had utilities and was even able to just use Windows File Explorer to transfer things like pictures and videos to and from my computer. Yet I'm having a lot of trouble finding something that will allow me to do this with my Samsung.

What I basically want (and I'm more than happy to purchase) is something which will allow me to view my Samsung in a Window/Utility that lets me copy individual things like Movies, Pictures and so on, both to and from the phone. Surely a tool like that exists for Androids as well?

  • Recommendations for tools that are available for my Samsung would be highly appreciated.

  • Please provide links and advise if you have personal experience with using what you recommend.


  • BTW, I know how to google, but doing so just makes it more confusing :)

2.  I currently use Smart Switch which was recommended to me by Samsung Support Chat as a way to Backup my Samsung (and restore if needed) and more importantly, to be able to Syncronize my Outlook Contents with my phone.

Got an issue with IBM Verse and native iPhone client as issue with foreign characters issues went sent to internet.  The same email sent to Notes user internally is OK.

Strange issue we've had with some Kanji characters going missing in emails.  Have been through just about every setting I can think of and content of the emails themselves to try and track down common factor thinking it was encoding issue, UTF-8, ISO 2202, Shift-Jis etc. But... finally come to the fact nothing to do with specific characters but seems to be every so MANY characters so for instance the examples below, first original set of characters sent from IBM verse on iPhone or iPhone client appears with certain characters missing.  

The same message text sent from my own IBM verse (on Android) through my Traveler server is fine.
The same message cc'd to internal Notes user is fine.
The same message text sent from Notes client is fine.

So only an issue from mobile device.

Possible things involved

iPhone --> IBM traveler 9.0.1 FP... --> Crossware signatures appended on Domino 8.5.3 mail server --> IBM Domino 8.5.3 outgoing SMTP server --> Symantec messagelabs outgoing

I have disabled Crossware signature for that user without any difference.

From my own system  (OK)

Android --> IBM Traveler 9.0.1 --> Symantec Messagelabs outgoing

I am going to try my own spare Android device against the company server to rule out some other issues.

Any ideas?!

This account/mailbox have full permission (and send as) on a shared mailbox (account/mailbox synced from my onpremises AD/Exchange and converted to shared mailbox later from Office365 Portal) with AutoMap enabled in Powershell.

Access to myaccount and sharedmailbox:

OWA access - OK
Office Outlook Client 2010/2013/2016 - OK

The question is: how to access the Shared Mailbox from some app in Android/iPhone??
