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++).

We have a custom phone app built in Native code to run on iOS and Android. This app allows customers to scan a QR code on machinery and access manuals and other data. How do we offer a license or some key to unlock the app after download? This is very much a case where other people (potentially competitors) should not be allowed access to the data just by downloading and installing an app. Thanks!

The customer has a Samsung Tab A bought two years ago, and they tell me they often have to uninstall apps because they are running out of memory.  They want me to get them a new Samsung tablet that will not have this problem.  i don't yet know how much RAM theirs has, but in looking at the newest Tab A, one model says it has "32GB internal memory and up to an extra 512GB of expandable memory with external microSD card."  But I am assuming that the SD card only allows them to save large files and such--NOT allowing them to have more apps installed.  Is that true--or does the SD card actually make the OS think it has far more RAM than the internal 32GB?  In other words, will adding an SD card solve their problem, letting them install and run most any number of apps they want?  TIA

OK I have two pieces of hardware:-

Fusion5 10.1" 2in1 Google Certified Android Laptop Tablet PC - (Octa core Processor, Android 8.1 Oreo, 2GB RAM, 32GB Storage, Dual Cameras, HD IPS, Bluetooth Tablet PC with Docking Keyboard)

... and:-

HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile Printer

I want to run a mobile project where I print Haiku's as I create them onto A6 card. I have checked the connectivity and all is well.

So I would like to load an Android word-processing App that is quick to set up and use ideally with a template sized for A6 card and the font set up ready to roll.

The icing on the cake would be to have templates with a choice of coloured/patterned borders too to save preprinting selections to print on.

Can anyone suggest a suitable App, it doesn't necessarily have to be free?

Got this screenshot in a great reply to a question.
encryption-is-where.png
It is from Android 9, Lite.  Going by the caption at the top of the screenshot screen "Encryption & credentials", seems like there's a setting in the OS called Encryption & credentials.  

I'm using Android 9.  Not Lite.

For some reason, I can't find that same Encryption & credentials setting in Android 9.

What do you think is happening?

Many thanks,

MyPhoneExplorer 1.8.12 released      2019-06-17

They say:
Simply explore your Android phone !
Connect your phone via WiFi, cable or bluetooth and you'll be surprised how easy and efficient it will be to manage your phone with our software. Since it's first release MyPhoneExplorer evolved into the most popular freeware tool for smartphones. The software is constantly updated with new features.

Anyone have experience with this app?

My main question: in syncing data, does the transfer between android phone and PC get sent encrypted, or can anyone read it?

Thanks!

We just had an Aiphone IX system installed.   We assigned static IPs to all the devices.   We have a Samsung tablet and phone that we use to control the gates or speak to people when they push the intercom.

I have verified that the tablet and phone are set to Static.  Every day each of those devices changes the IP address.  We set it in the morning and later in the day they get a new IP.

Note:   Our DHCP has a scope of 50-200.   The IPs we have assigned are above 200.   One suggestion that we have not tried yet is to create a Reservation for those two devices.  Any thoughts on this?

I have discussed this with 4 technicians and all of them state that if an IP is assigned as static it can only be changed manually.  

We have been researching this with the company that installed it and with Aiphone.  No one can figure this out.

So my question is how is it possible for the IPs to be changing?   I know that it is not being done by anyone.   The devices are turned on in the morning and just sit on the desk until someone comes to the door or pushes the intercom.   Any ideas will be appreciated.

Outlook for iOS and Android issues with on-premise Exchange 2016 CU13.  The Server Exchange 2016 is installed on is a Server 2012 R2.

I have a client that I cannot get the Outlook app to connect to any mailbox.  iPhones and iPads say unable to log in and Android devices say same thing but also (408).

OWA is working, Outlook clients are working, auto discover test passes both on-site and off-site.  I have checked and tried everything but cannot figure out what is blocking the Outlook app.

If I use an Apple or Android devices native email client it works BUT I need the Outlook App specifically - that is the only other option and it should work.

As a test I did try the Outlook app with two of my other clients that have same setup and it worked but I cannot figure out what is blocking the Outlook App for this client.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  I've been trying to figure this out for a few days.

Regards,
Torrey

Have a new Samsung A7, Android 8.0.0 OS.

Can't see the option for encrypting the PHONE.  

Have encrypted the SD card.

Have set up a PIN & fingerprint sensor unlock.

I recall there was an option to encrypt the phone - had one with my Sasumg J5.

But, can't find the option to encrypt anything beyond the SD card on this phone.

What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!

I have a Galaxy Note 9 with Android Pie (version 9.0) installed and have an issue with it.

From time to time as most people do I listen to music on my phone with Bluetooth headset. I also have a Bluetooth receiver in the car for hands free calling when driving.

Those aren't an issue in themself, the issue is whenever the phone connects to the Bluetooth device in the car it automatically starts playing the music I was previously listening to. It only occurs with the car device because that automatically switches on with the car so automatically connects. I can even have been listening through USB speakers previously and it will still start automatically when connected to Bluetooth device.

It doesn't seem to start the App that I used (eg Google Play Music, TuneIn radio app or Amazon Music) but I get the play control notification ( << || >>) in the notifications area.

Its easy enough to get rid of, tap the pause and then swipe the notification away. That's if I notice it, it could be that I don't notice and it is potentially streaming music (TuneIn or Amazon Music) using my mobile data, not a massive data usage but shouldn't be happening.

Is there a setting in Android somewhere that I can change to stop music automatically playing whenever I reconnect to a Bluetooth device? Autoplay setting or something.

Thanks
Rob

Starter acoustic guitar for use with the Chord Buddy, Android smartphone, and sound amplification

I purchased this thing called the Chord Buddy https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OABXOMG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and am considering this option for a starter acoustic guitar https://www.amazon.com/Fender-FA-115-Acoustic-Strings-Instructional/dp/B0092V7WJ0/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=guitar&qid=1571024587&sr=8-4.

I don't want to spend a fortune but I would like to give myself some long-term options in case I actually enjoy it.

Is it possible to have this guitar interface with my cell phone in some way?

I want to make sure I am going down a reasonably flexible path before dropping another $150-$200 on a guitar, etc first.

Your thoughts and some guidance here would be greatly appreciated.

Take a measurement if all you have available is a cell phone.

The other day, I wanted to take a measurement of some rubber pads that are screwed into the underside of a portable set of bleachers in the gymnasium of my church. I did not have a tape measure and so I did the next best thing and took the picture attached to this message.

Ideally, I would like to find an app, that will allow me to get an accurate measurement when all I have with me is a cell phone.

I have tested several apps in the past and so far haven't identified anything that really works, so some assistance here is greatly appreciated.

Google's keyboard replacement is excellent because it contains both a clipboard tool as well as a tool for inserting gifs.

However, it poses a challenge that I have been unable to resolve so far.

If I am forwarding an e-mail and go to "insert text", There appears to be no way to move the existing text to the next line.

This is because of the blue button on the keyboard that starts out as a 'new-line' or 'return' key, but changes to a 'send' key instead.

Thanks for Nobus for correcting my terminology here.

Assistance in further clarifying the potential solution to this problem is greatly appreciated.

Other than Factory Reset, what precautions can I use to DEEPLY erase a used Android Phone that I've gotten?  Need some EXTRA level of erasing before I apply all my data to it.

One idea that occurred to me: activate phone with a dummy account.  Turn on video, and just let it run until all the memory has been written over.

Then: Factory Reset again, add REAL account.

What's a good way?

Many thanks,

Our Android phone keeps losing its messaging function. It will receive notices about Gmail, but if we're waiting for a notification to come in from say twitter, because we need a code to help us log in, that type of message isn't arriving.

We've fixed it a few times by going into apps, then messaging, and deleting the cache and storage, then rebooting. But it's a huge pain to have to do that, and it takes 15 minutes or more for that to work.

Anything we can do?

Say, My Android phone is backing up call log history to google drive. I can view the file under backups in Google Drive. How do I download this file and inspect it? I want to view the raw data.

Does Google keep older backups or each time over right them and if so is there a setting or way to keep a history of backup files?

I am interested in buying a an Android PC suite phone manager. After doing extensive research I was able to limit my choices down to 3 products. All seem to be the best as far as feature rich,compatibility and ease of use. These are Dr.Fone , TunesGO {I believe both products are available from Wondershare.com vendor}and lastly Apowersoft phone manager. I would like to know if the 2 products by wondershare
are the same and if not what is the difference between them? lastly which one would be the best PC suite phone manager to buy from all three. For backup, recovery purposes. Please if possible provide me with a comparison chart of these 3 product. I was unable to find anything on Google and I spent a lot of time doing so.
Thank you,
