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 recently found that the battery power on my phone is dropping rapidly. When I check the battery item in settings it indicates that mdnsd is the main user. What initiates this task and how do I kill it? I'm running Android version 4.4.4

Hi Experts,

My LG G5 phone is running Android 7.0.

Frequently whenever my finger is near the bottom right hand corner of the screen, what I call a "menu wheel" pops up in that corner, as shown below:

Android 7.0 screendump showing "the wheel"
How can I disable or uninstall this "feature"?

Hello,

I have released my app to Production.

Is there a way to test a new version on Google Play without the others seeing it? (and when everything is ok, then create the new release)

I know that I can copy the new apk to my phone but the Google Play version contains in app purchases.

Thank you.

So if my understanding is correct from what I have managed to discover, the problem here is that any device connected to a cell phone hotspot, that has an active VPN, will simply route through the public ip connection on the hotspot and not go through the VPN.

Is there a way to 'route' through the VPN any device connected to the cell hotspot?  I have heard that possibly rooting the cell phone may allow this, but I have never rooted a phone before.

Or, is there another way to make this happen?  I am trying to create a secure VPN from our remote offices back to our main office using a cell phone...without having to step up to a LTE router.

I'm trying to collect data from FireBase, in Android Studio, while sorting it using the orderByChild and equalTo functions. Then I'm trying to display the data on text views. The page crashes every time? How can I fix this? Below I've given my code and my database:

 public class TrackOrder extends AppCompatActivity {

    DatabaseReference mDatabase;
    private EditText trackText;
    private Button trackBtn;
    private TextView disp, text;


    public void trackBtn (View view){ //opens the admin portal activity
        trackText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.trackText);
        disp = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.disp);

        String trackNumb = trackText.getText().toString();

        disp.setText(trackNumb);


    }


    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_track_order);

        String numb = disp.getText().toString();

        trackText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.trackText);
        text = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.text);
        trackBtn = (Button) findViewById(R.id.trackBtn);


        mDatabase = FirebaseDatabase.getInstance().getReference().child("Orders"); //Reflecting where the data will be located


        mDatabase.orderByChild("1 order_number").equalTo("4725");

        mDatabase.addValueEventListener(new ValueEventListener() {
            @Override
            public void onDataChange(DataSnapshot dataSnapshot) {

I have an expandable list view that is inside of an expandable list adapter. I would like to remove an item from an expandable list view when the delete option is selected in the context menu in Android. After I call the remove method on the object's position, when I try to call notifyDataSetChanged() on the expandable list adapter, it says the method does not exist.

However, it will work for a regular ArrayAdapter. Because of the way my data is structured (having to display multiple fields in each list view item), I need to use an expandable list view instead of just a simple list view. I have tried casting the expandable list adapter to an ExpandListAdapter object and calling the getAdapter() method on it, and then calling notifyDataSetChanged() but I get the following error: SimpleAdapter cannot be cast to com.test.myapp.ExpandListAdapter.

My application is using API 25. Please see the code below:
@Override
public boolean onContextItemSelected(MenuItem item) {

    AdapterView.AdapterContextMenuInfo info = (AdapterView.AdapterContextMenuInfo) item.getMenuInfo();
    switch(item.getItemId()) {
        case R.id.add:
            Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, AddUser.class);
            startActivity(intent);
            return true;
        case R.id.edit:
            Intent intent2 = new Intent(MainActivity.this, ViewUser.class);
            intent2.putExtra("data", userList.get(info.position).get("id"));
            startActivity(intent2);

Hi!

I have an Android App written in Delphi Seattle.
The app won't be available on Google Play: I will deliver the Apk file to the user.

I would like to be able to restrict the number of devices per user (so each more device usage would cost a small sum of money)...

How can I do that?

Thank you.

Hi All Expert,

Good Day.

I would like to check how can I check on my Microsoft Exchange Server? I used to use configure outlook using pop3 or imap but for exchange, I don't have the knowledge, I try using mail.companyname.com for the Microsoft Exchange Server which works for pop3 and imap but couldn't work for Microsoft Exchange in Outlook 2010. The reason I wanted to use Microsoft Exchange is that it can sync calendar and contact with device like Android and iPhone. Sorry for my noob question, appreciate if any expert can advise me on.

Thanks!

How to test DASH file in Samsung mobile OR LG mobile check by default without using any 3rd party app or browser.

We will be testing only to see if DASH is in the firmware. (Yes or no answer)
They do not want to have DASH be accessed using a browser or any 3rd party app.
This only includes android testing.
Depending on how much it cost depends on how many phones they can test.
They would like to test a high end and a low end phone for each of the top 10 phone providers, i.e. Samsung, LG.
They currently use Version 3.3 DASH.

Possible Information Needed:
What phones would be best to test?
How long would it take to see if DASH is there

I had this question after viewing delphi intraweb upload file.

I have an Intraweb app  (Delphi XE4) which successfully uses IWFileUploader. User can upload a file to the application's dedicated folder if they access the app via a windows pc.

Problem is that one of the users has a Samsung Android tablet which they use to access the web application, and IWFileUploader doesn't work.
Ideally they'd be able to take a photo with the tablet, and upload it to the Intraweb app's web directory.

Is this even possible?
What's the best way to proceed?

Sometime ago we had hired a company to develop an app for us, this company completed the task and uploaded the app into Google Play for us. Today this company is no longer inexistence and we are not able to locate the programmers / person in charge.

We are now having problem to remove this application from Google Play, Google Play will not allow us to remove this item as we do not have the necessary to do so. Is there another way? What can we do?

Cheers

Hello everybody.
I am trying to login to Skype for Business on my Samsung Galaxy S7 (Android 7.0) but I am not succeeding.

We have enabled two factor authentication (TFA)
The TFA works fine when I log in to Skype4B and other O365 applications on my desktop or laptop. I have the MS Authenticator application installed on my smartphone.

When I try to launch Skype4B on the smartphone, the Microsoft Authenticator application kicks in and eventually I get a couple of error messages ('error Oauth'  and then another message saying that the version of Chrome is not compatible). The process doesn't stop and there is an infinite loop between Skype4B giving the error messages and the Authenticator application continuing running without success.

I observe a very similar behavior with Teams (loop between Authenticator and Teams, failing to log in): the only difference is that I don't get any error message.

Thank you in advance for your help.
