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++).

Can anyone give me a step by step guide on how to set up/use
Android's  "Smart Applock" to lock down what apps the user
can run/install?  

Eg: don't want user to be able to install any browsers but just
a dedicated app called "MyApp".  The administrator/Helpdesk
holds the password to this app such that if any user wants
to install any app, have to be brought to the Admin/Hdesk
& Admin/Hdesk  need a password to go into this 'Smart App
Lock" to permit the new app to be installed.

Screen by screen instructions will be ideal

Is there any way to get the Google Translate app on Android to allow you to speak slower? I don’t understand why it cuts off what you are saying if you make normal pauses in the speech. Also, when I use it always seems to leave off the last word I say. I cannot seem to find any setting that helps with this. I am not bent on using Google (even though it's other features are good) if there are any suggestions for a better working translator shoot it. Thanks for any help Billy Carmen

Hi,
I am looking for a AI chatbot that we can setup like a FAQ model. Response can be in the form of Text / HTML / Images / Video / PPT / PDF.

Some kind of iframe / Link that I can directly integrate in my Android App.

I am looking for some third party or subscription model where I will setup my data and I can start using it.

I have tried DialogFlow, MS Azure chatbot model. But things are not working.

Please suggest.

I am currently building a android based app using Ionic 4 and angular. I am looking for all possible ways to connect the app to a locally hosted database (sql server 2017). I am aware that I can connect through wifi, but was wondering if it is possible to make this connection using a usb instead of wifi. Is there a way to connect to a db this way to insert or update data on the sql server 2017 side?

Scenario: Program that works on a pc, using a locally hosted server. A tablet in front, to capture data from clients easily so that reception does not have to type everything in themselves.

Hi,

I use a Samsung Note 9 phone for conference calls.

These conference calls are recorded using a call recorder app on my phone.

I always get permission from those that are part of the conference calls so it is okay to record them.

We have tried different call recorders for Samsung phone but got mixed results.

Sometimes, the call recorder that we use currently only records my voice or other person's voice is very quiet when recording is played back.

It is expected that all people on the call should be recorded and heard when played back.

What would you recommend as best call recorder to use for the Samsung Note 9?

Thanks,
Robbie

When I go to my Google Contacts from my Android phone, I can see labels that I have provided for those contacts, I want to be able to select a label to see only the appropriate contacts, and then send a group message to each contact that has that label. I've tested GroupMe and an app called Band. Neither of those solutions appear to make it easy to select only contacts that belong to a particular Google label.

Assistance in finding the right solution is greatly appreciated

Forcing access to one screen only on my phone.

I have a page up in OneNote on my Android phone.

I want the child to stay on that One-Note page and be able to use that page while preventing him or her from going anywhere else?

How can I accomplish this or something similar?

I'm thinking something that would let me activate a command to "stay on this screen" would be useful

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hello!
I have a form on my web-site where one can attach his (her) photo by the end of it and then click SEND button below. If one uses a regular PC (say, notebook) then everything if fine. But, unfortunately, nowadays most people use smartphones and then there's a problem. Housewives have no idea what is a file size and they have no clue how to lessen it in a Photo Editor app. Not like they even care...  They just buy new phones with 12-15 megapixel built-in cameras and shoot. If one uses his (her) Android smartphone to send that online form and attaches a photo of, say, 3,5 MB in size, then everything is okay. But if a photo, say, 5,2 MB then there's an Android error message (with an Android "robot" in it) ERR_FAIL or something like that. I contacted my mobile career and they said that they don't have any particular limitation on file size to be sent. Also the phone (it's Philips) reps told me that the phone itself doesn't have such limits. Then it must be an Android issue or... of mobile Android browsers. As per iOS (Apple)... I frankly don't know... I personally don't have such a phone and not many people in our country use them (probably too expensive???)...
My phone is Philips S257 (if it makes any difference). It operates on Android 7.0 But I think it doesn't matter, 'cos other people with other phones had the same issue. It's just for me it's easier to check it on my own device.
Any ideas?

I want to replace my Galaxy Note 5 battery.  It has 3000mAh.  I see there's also 3300mAh and up to 3600mAh available for the same model.  
 Would that be any issues if I replace it to the higher mAh?  

Thanks.

I am really hoping someone can help me on this.  I have done many exchange migrations and setups but this was my first gsuite to exchange.  Everything is working perfect minus phones.  Mail will not load to outlook on mobile but you can see the calendars.  Mail will load to the native mail client on iPhone and android but you cant send.  If I use a 3rd party mail app like spark mail flows in and out just fine??  I need the outlook and native ones to work.  I have tried a ton of stuff, redid stuff etc. and now I think I'm to the point to where I'm digging so deep I'm not seeing the simple answer.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Looking for a couple of Android apps:

is there any app or method that will make an Android phone
(specifically Galaxy Note series) to draw its power from the
USB charging source when the phone is plugged in & not
from its built-in battery?

if there's none, is there an app that I could set a timer to
charge the battery only every several hours (which I can
configure to be at say 6 or 7 or 8 hrs)  Or
an app that could set it such that when the battery level
is left 20%, then only it starts charging

We have an Adobe PDF form that gets filled in and then the user hits the SUBMIT button and it emails the form to several people.  This works great on Android but not the iOS products. On iOS it does nothing when you hit SUBMIT.
We are using Adobe PDF reader on both platforms.  Is there some other application for PDFs on iOS that would be able to handle the Submit Email process?

I am looking for software that will allow our organization to create a technical support interface for our organization.

The software must allow our technical support team to view the message and photo and provide feedback.

we are hoping to find a commercially available software product which has apps for iPhone and android.

suggestions?

for example, a client may post a photo of an electronic component and raise the question, “our quality control department noticed an unusual texture on the underside of an sn7400N parts that we received today.

please review the photos attached and advise whether this should be a concern.

I installed Chrome Browser on Kindle HD Fire fifth-generation. I have tried to retrieve bookmarks from other chrome browsers on PCs and phone but have not been able to sync up . From Settings, I get to Sync and Google Services, and then I press Sign in to Chrome, and there is an indication that the press is acknowledged. But no sign in screen shows up. I have signed in to both youtube and gmal in this Chrome browser. If I could sign into the Chrome Browser, maybe syncing would work .

I've a bookmark file from a PC, but I would have to copy the link and bookmark it. Too many, after all that, it still would not be in sync .

I was hoping to stop using Silk browser since it does not provide a way to export bookmarks. (Helps to keep users trapped in the Amazon eco system.) I will provide hints to my family not to gift me any more Kindle tablets .

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active AT&T Firmware Downgrade

Hi there!
I bought 2 of these Samsung Galaxy S7 Active AT&T branded phones off ebay USA and got 'em delivered to Australia. Both of these phones were working perfecty alright with the old firmware installed (I'm reasonably sure the firmware was Android 7 Nougat), until I forced the new firmware update by manually updating the firmware to Android 8 via Odin.

We have got 3 major telcos and  numerous MVNO's(Mobile Virtual Network Operators) in Australia and both of these above-mentioned phones were working with all 3 major telcos and all of their MVNO's before I forced the firmware upgrade via Odin. Now, out of these 3 network operators Vodafone and its MVNO's sim cards has stopped working. Both phones working perfectly fine with other 2 network sim cards. I believe this has got something to do with the operating system upgrade as both of these phones having difficulty making/receiving calls on Vodafone network (I'm able to send/receive messages sometimes with long delays, though ). The new firmware must have disabled few of the frequencies/Network bands. The following link might help that has got the operating frequencies of these 3 networks

https://www.whistleout.com.au/MobilePhones/Guides/Will-my-phone-work-in-Australia-carrier-network-frequencies



I am attaching the current software information and I want to downgrade the operating system(Firmware ) back to Android Nougat. I'm not worried about …
