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++).

Hi

Does anyone know of a product or a method that will allow us to push out company phone contacts to Android devices one way?

We are currently using Google contacts through one Google mail account for about 130 devices and have a regular issue where one of the users will delete a number. This of course syncs back and affects all users.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            My fiancee wishes to back up her pictures stored on an iPhone 5s to a new Alcatel idealEXTRA Android Version 8.1.0 which brings me to this upcoming question of interest.  Is it possible to hook up a small USB storage device about the size of a flash drive to the iPhone 5s, back up the pictures to it, disconnect it, plug it into the Alcatel idealEXTRA and transfer or copy the pics to it?  If there is such an external storage device for backing up and transferring pictures between phones, could someone provide an online purchase link?

             Thank you

             George

The user is having trouble connecting their Blackberry Android to an Apple WiFi network.
They have a Blackberry Priv.  
Their home network uses Apple Airport Express
The phone indicates that it is connected to the D55 Wi-Fi network, but they can't browse

I made sure that all Airports had the latest firmware, and restarted each Airport.
I suggested that they connect to the 5G network rather than the 2G, just in case there was too much interference.

Is there anything that should be done on the Android?

Thanks.

If I lose my phone again (or it gets stolen) is there a way that I can have WhatsApp, Viber, Snap Chat configured so that after I set up a new phone, and install those apps, all the old historic data will be on the new phone.

I have a weird question. We recently moved from In House exchange over to office 365 and since the move we have had some users (not all) complain about contacts messing up. We will have users that have a contact with a phone number in it and all of a sudden the phone number will no longer show under the contact. I have made sure all the contact is wrong in OWA as well when the issue is reported to me. This is happening to users on both iPhones and Android, and the contacts that are missing the info are also on multiple device types, it's not just iPhone or Android. I have run the reports in Office 365 and don't see any unusual activity but it is becoming a widespread problem. Any Ideas?

I installed the update to Delphi, version 10.3, but I cannot select a target platform of Android. Under Project manager, I right clicked on "target platform" but the "Add" button is greyed out.

I downloaded Android Studio hoping that would let the Delphi IDE see that Android is an available target platform. Did not help.

I installed Delphi 10.3 on another pc, a machine with no software on it...it was reset to factory settings, and have the same problem there.

How do I make the Android platform available as a target platform?

There is a top row above the complete list of Android apps on my Nexus 6 Android phone.

it seems to show the apps that are most often used using 4 icons along the top.

I would prefer to not have this show up?

is it possible to hide that row all together?

As an alternative to hiding the row all together, I would also like to know if there is a way to require a specific PIN code in order to pull up the list of apps to begin with?

I know you can do this on a per app basis, but I may need to be able to do it with the screen itself.

Hello, im having some issues with a tablet running android version 5.0.2 which in the past has worked perfectly, and im also seeing messages pop up like google play services has stopped working which may tie in with the issues im seeing?

On apps like ebay all seems to work fine, but when you try to 'read more' or look at item details, the screen shows a spinning circle (i guess androids 'egg timer') and it gets stuck there with no information on the screen ever appearing.  The same kind of thing happens in yahoo finance app when you say try looking at a price graph it also gets stuck, displays text figures but the graph area you see the spinning circle again and it never gets any further.

Sometimes ive seen ebay has stopped working messages, but less often.

Any ideas on how to fix this, does android have any kind of tech support? just curious !

Hi,

I have a Samsung Note 9 phone.

My contacts are located in two different places; sim card and Gmail account.

There are different contacts in both of these places but would like all imported to Note 9 phone.

Also, there are some contacts which are the same in both places.

Is there a way of syncing together contacts in Gmail with contacts on this phone, where contacts were imported from sim card, without having duplication of contacts?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi all :)

Have a ZTE V72M Tablet that came with my ATT Digital Life security system for touchscreen controls. I dont use the system anymore, but would like to install CWM or TWRP to flash a custom ROM, but there is no access to any android system settings to enable USB debugging etc. Even if there was a way to get rid of the ATT UI, and just have a stock Android, would be great.

And go. TIA!!

I am building a android app using Android Studio.

I need to create a custom alert dialog, with a TextView and a Spinner, to prompt a user to edit values saved in a list.  I am currently using a default alert dialog to edit the one variable in the list (quantity of the item selected), but I must now be able to edit both variables (quantity and tax amount). The quantity will be a simple int, and the tax amount is a predefined variable list found in each users personal database.

What is the best way to create and implement a custom alert dialog for users to edit their lists?

-I am trying to get current Location on  web app loaded on xamarin. Forms  3.0+ WebView,i cant get it working
and i have tried several ways for doing it based on the suggestions provided below

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44629197/show-prompt-to-know-the-location 

 Location Issue on WebView Xamarin Forms  3.1

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42304287/xamarin-forms-webview-geolocation-issue

*-Initially i used to get below message on logs after locaction Prompt popup
" Caught security exception while registering for location updates from the system. The application does not have sufficient geolocation permissions.
11-23 14:58:34.827 E/cr_LocationProvider(26982): newErrorAvailable application does not have sufficient geolocation permissions."*
and i solved by requesting location permission on popup prompt.

-I even went ahead and requested permission whenever there was location prompt.

-I also tried to access location before opening the WebView itself

Android phone continues to ask for password to setup account.

I just changed our cell phone users to use Outlook app, instead of default mail app on Android.

I started by going into Accounts and deleting the setup for the email app.

I then downloaded Outlook app and setup their accounts in there.

All the Android phones are randomly asking to "setup account", in the old mail app. It contains the server info and is asking for the password.  EVERY android phone is doing this.  Some users had more than one email account setup under the default email app.  Some users, their corporate account was the only email setup.  

FYI - we would sync email, contacts, calendar and tasks.
I have checked calendar and contacts settings for any reference, with no luck.

There are references under the default email app for notifications that still points to their corporate email, even though I removed it.

One user, we deleted their other email account in default mail and set it back up, still have the issue. (they no longer have a reference to the old account under notifications)

I am running out of ideas....

All posts are how "control the desktop app from phone" :(

But a lot of people need control android device (for example connected to hifi) from other android device or windows (PC).

How do it?

https://www.spotify.com/pl/connect/

Spotify has fantastic feature "Spotify Connect" that is super easy set-up. You'll need a phone, laptop or tablet with the with Spotify app. Add another device that supports Spotify or has the app (like a speaker or laptop). Connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network, and log in to Spotify. Then you will be control all device from all other devices.

Is it possible control android tidal app from other device with android system without root on this? How?
