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 have a SBS 2003 running Exchange (yes, i know it's well past its sell-by date) and I've just replaced my iPhone with a Samsung Android phone.
The email app on the iPhone connected and synced quite nicely but I'm having a problem with the Android. The pre-installed Outlook app doesn't connect because I think Exchange is too old. I've tried a few other email apps but not had any success connecting so far.

Does anyone know of an Android email app that will connect to my Exchange server?

Become a CompTIA Certified Healthcare IT Tech

This course will help prep you to earn the CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician certification showing that you have the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in installing, managing, and troubleshooting IT systems in medical and clinical settings.

I'm creating a digital planner and need a little Power Point help. I'm creating the graphics in Paint Shop Pro then importing them into PowerPoint to add the hyperlinks. Then I will be using the Xodo app to finish it and use it on my Android tablet and phone. (IOS users use Goodnotes but I don't have an Apple device).
    So I have tabs around 3 of the sides of my planner. I have the tabs set up on the left side (Jan- Dec) for monthly spreads and I have all those hyperlinks set up ok on all the pages.
   Now I'm working on the top 4 tabs and have all those but one done and that's where I need assistance. I have a "today" tab that obviously leads to the current date in the planner.  
    How can I add a hyperlink that changes daily?  I've seen others with the "today" tab, so I know it's possible, but I don't know how (yet).
    Any idea?
  Thanks!

I am considering using a Rasberry Pi as an SBC (single board computer) with Android O/S installed and programming with Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2  (C++ builder). Is there a library or other means of using the GPIO of the Rasberry Pi and other hardware features of the SBC ?

We currently have 200 android tablet devices in a CLOUD only environment, no on prem.

What i would like to do is for the tablets to have restricted internet access, what is the best way to do this? Do not want any app installation or the use of a subscription such as openDNS where there is a cost associated to it. Cant use free as there are restriction on additional entries (may be wrong)

Anyway, would love help with this and what I can do to achieve this, as I said we are cloud based and using MerakiSM MDM to manage these. Step by Step would also be appreciated.

Thanks

I have a cordova app and would like to make some changes to the build.gradle file. Basically, I would like to remove some lines (with **) and add some new statements (*)

I have added the lines but when I build my code with  cordova  the gradle file gets regenerated and my changes are lost.

I know that I can use the android studio but I am automating my process and would do it with my current automation script

Can you please let me know how to make this change with maybe gradle.extra file

I am using Cordova 6.5.0

Thanks for the help

here is the snippet from the build.gradle file

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: '*.jar')
    debugCompile(project(path: "CordovaLib", configuration: "debug"))
    releaseCompile(project(path: "CordovaLib", configuration: "release"))
    **//compile "com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:11.+"**
    compile "com.android.support:support-v4:24.1.1+"
    compile "com.squareup.okhttp:okhttp-urlconnection:2+"
    **//compile "com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:+"**
    *compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:10.2.6'
    // SUB-PROJECT DEPENDENCIES END
}
*apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'

Dear Experts,

 I have created a Restful API which is being consumed from android application. The api is below.

@CrossOrigin
      @Cacheable("locations")
      @RequestMapping(value = "/locations/", method = RequestMethod.GET, produces = { "application/json" })
      public List<Map<String, Object>> locations() throws Exception {
            this.daoFactory.setClass(Location.class);
            return getLocationMap(daoFactory.getLargestUnits());
      } and  



private List<Map<String, Object>> getLocationMap(List<Location> locations) {
            logger.info("fetching microplan location from: {}", locations.size());
            List<Map<String, Object>> jsonLocations = new ArrayList<Map<String, Object>>();
            for (Location location : locations)
                  jsonLocations.add(location.toJsonizedMap());
            logger.debug("loaded microplan location {}.", jsonLocations.size());
            return jsonLocations;
      }


sometimes it tells service is down from the application.
But  if I  just run this  this api from the postman and I could able to login into the application again and it works fine.

Experts,
what would be the root cause problem of it??


Thanks

Is it possible to share iTunes Library between PC & Android phone?

A brief search yielded shows information about using Android but I don't see any literature on using Android phones other than Apple Music subscriptions.

Is this a recent change or has it always taken an Apple mobile device to play your library from a mobile device?

When I receive a text message containing a video, I receive the video as a photo (i.e., as only one frame of the video), along with a playable audio file the full length of the video I SHOULD have gotten. This is true no matter the size of the video, true even for two-second videos, and true whether I use the Android Messages app or the Samsung Messages app to access the text message. Fact is, I have never gotten videos via text message; only now I am getting them, and because of this issue I can't view them. I'm on the Verizon network, my wife is on the AT&T network, and while she is able to view the same texted videos I get, I am unable to view them. Both of us are using Android Messages, and all the settings on her app and mine are exactly the same. I've called Verizon about this and they are stumped. Note that the Android Messages online site, which is synced to my phone, receives the same text that my phone does, i.e., only one frame of the video, plus the playable audio file, but not the whole video. My phone: Samsung Galaxy Note IV. Operating system: Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow). Any ideas what is going on?

I am creating an Android application that allows users to add notes, organize them into categories, and set reminders for the notes in the form of push notifications.

I am able to schedule reminder notifications when the phone is on. However, if you turn the phone off and then turn it on later, or restart it, then set multiple notifications: one that has a scheduled time after the phone has been rebooted or turned on again and one that is scheduled to go off at a time after the phone has been rebooted or turned off, then both notifications go off immediately after the phone turns on or is rebooted.

The expected behavior is that the notification that is scheduled at a time after the phone has rebooted fires at the scheduled time instead of right away.

Please see RebootReceiver.java and NotificationScheduler.java below and let me know if you need additional files from my project or information.

RebootReceiver Class:

package com.coolcoderz.notes2go;

import android.app.AlarmManager;
import android.app.Notification;
import android.app.NotificationManager;
import android.app.PendingIntent;

I want to record my Whatsapp Voice calls on Android 7+ for free. I installed many apps from Google Play Store. None of them worked. Please introduce a free app which really works.
There are some screen recorder apps which records everything on your screen but they don’t record your contact voice if you don’t use the loud speaker. I want to record my contact voice when I use my phone normally.
Thanks

Hi all
We have a number of Android tablets, some of which are misbehaving. I need to be able to save (or send) the system logs (and maybe dmesg as well, if poss) continuously to the removeable SD card, or alternately, to send the logs out to an FTP server. Can someone help me do this please? I will not be able to "root" the devices.
Thanks in advance

I have an application called Clipper installed  on my LG Smartphone. It syncs with my Samsung  tablet. It stores all clippings loosely and securely stores my hundreds of usernames  and passwords.

My crappy Smartphone is having serious problems,  so I am entertaining the thought of wiping it and Reset to Factory Settings.
Will the synced copy of Clipper on my tablet survive if I wipe the phone?

automatic call recorder
free version
app version 5.42.1

recordings were good then I noticed last recording was at a low volume
Maybe in a version upgrade

If I pay for paid version, do you think this will fix.

Support the build.gradle configured with compileSdkVersion 25. Should the dependencies be run in same version, ie 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.4.0'  ?


In resource\XML, there is 28 - 25 to choose from. Does it mean the android apps will be test to run under api 25 - 28 ?

Can I say my Android app will be compiled in v25 and will be tested in platform 25 - 28 ?

Thx
