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 am dealing with an odd issue. Have a user who has about 14,000 contacts. Outlook and OWA both show the correct amount of contacts. The user has a samsung galaxy phone and it will sync most of the contacts and then stop. Going in to account and telling it to sync does nothing more. I have replicated the issue on multiple samsung phones. When I add the same account to an iPhone it syncs all the contacts no problem. I turned on activesync logging for user and I have a copy of the logs but to be honest I am not sure what to even look for in the logs. There is nothing that stands out to me. I found one microsoft document that mentions this issue and the solution was to set ActiveSync mailbox policy to Unlimited. I checked and this setting is already in place (looks to be the default policy). : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2563324/current-issues-with-exchange-activesync-and-third-party-device

Hi,

I have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy A3) which is connected to our network's WiFi.

There is a printer; (HP PageWide Pro 477dw), which is connected on our wired network.

Two apps have been installed on this phone;

1. Microsoft Outlook application
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.office.outlook&hl=en_IE
2. HP Print Service Plugin
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hp.android.printservice

Email has been synced with Microsoft Office 365 and Outlook 2016 on network connected PCs.

I have logged in successfully to the Microsoft Outlook application on the Android phone and can access, send and receive emails.

The problem is that there is no option to print emails or to highlight an attachment in email and click print.

When viewing pictures from gallery and web pages through Google on the Android phone, there is the option for print and printing works successfully.

Is there a way of printing emails from the Outlook application on Android phones or if not, then what other alternative would there be?

Thanks,
Robbie

I am developing a PWA that requires a variable containing the users authentication key to passed to the installed version when the user adds the application to their home screen.

The android version maintains cookies and session ccokies in the install, but IOS loses cookies, session variables, querystrings and any other means of transferring the key to the app when it is installed.

Is there a way to get round this sandboxing of the installed app to save users having to login again once they have installed the app on IOS?

Hello,

we are using Mobile Device Manager Plus MSP. Our goal is to get mobile devices that are secure with no unwanted app and no change of system settings. The devices have only company email access. The phones are company owned so no BYOD.
For us the Kiosk mode was a proper solution for this.

Now we have 2 problems with email.
Since Android 8 Gmail seams to be the default email-config-setup app. So if you push the active sync settings and MDM will setup the password it will always open Gmail.
How can we change this or is there a work around?

We don't want to use the Gmail App, because the accounts settings are "open". This means you can add other private mail accounts.
So the other question is, what are other (enterprise) Mail Apps than can be configured with only the company active sync server?

Maybe the Mail App will also solve the first question :)

Thank you.

Need a free tool kit to fix the "Unfortunately, Android System has stopped" problems.  I got this error message on my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 when I try to send any photos from Galaxy - by hitting "share".  

I have tried dr.phone  (didn't pay) but it didn't even work for US based phones. I'd appreciate suggestions on any proven working tool kits that can fix this problem. Free ones preferred since I just use it once. Hope you can also give some instruction or procedures for fixing the problem.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm trying to figure in Samsung A9 based on the Android Camera API how can I use the widest range.

Using the setZoom(0) does not give the same effect as the selected icon (attached Screenshot), this option give much wider range.
Wide range icon
Tnx,

I am new to Exchange 2013 administration and I am trying to resolve a problem with mobile devices of new users not able to connect to the Exchange server, even though current users are able to login and access their emails via Android and iPhone devices. I checked the affected user accounts and the "Mobile Device Details" has the "Default" mobile device mailbox policy enabled and that is the only policy, so that should work for everyone. Also, the "Mobile Devices" section shows the button to add and modify devices as disabled or greyed for me even though I have admin privileges to make changes on the server. I am not sure how I am supposed to enable the user accounts to add their mobile device to allow the connections. Please help!

I had this question after viewing Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus Encryption?.

My s9+ phone does not have a "Security" option under "Settings", only a "Lock Screen and Security" option. Under that the only encryption option is for the SD card, not the Device.

I have the Outlook app on my Android phone, and I want to mimic the behavior of "VIP" emails on an iPhone. That is, when I receive an email from a certain address, I want to get a notification on my phone, even when the phone's asleep. How can I do this?

Hello to everyone,

I've installed the AutomateIT App on my Samsung Note 3 with Android 8.1 because I want to execute the following task :

-) it shoud delete all the SMS messages that I have got which contains the strings "speed" and the string "shock".

If I don't get wrong,AutomateIT can't do it in a easy way. You can ask why I don't delete the SMS manually ? That's because these sms come from my GPS tracker and I get a lot of them and I don't want to spend time by delete them individually. And I don't want to delete everything because I keep saved some SMS that I need to read from time to time. So,if you a way to do what I want,please explain. Thanks.

I've been building a React js based site which needs some parallax design. I've tried the basic CSS/SCSS based parallax the following way:

background: url(/image.jpg) fixed;
  background-position: center center;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: cover;

Open in new window


But that doesn't work on most mobile browsers, not even in Chrome dev tool while at a responsive mode. Not even on Safari responsive mode. Nor on iOS simulators. Need a better parallax using pure CSS/SCSS that will work everywhere. Also would appreciate the help creating something like the following:

magnifying glass effect using cSS with parallax
This is where the round object should have the look and feel of a magnifying glass and will work on all devices. I'd really appreciate the help asap. Thanx in advance.

Hi All,

I have a client that uses WhatsApp (I am only familar with it in the most general terms - I have used it a few times).

They have gotten a new phone, and want to be able to use WhatsApp thereon, so they have installed and (apparently) setup.

The new phone has the same phone number as their old phone (the SIM card has been moved over).  Both phones are Android if it makes any difference.

However, when they open WhatsApp on their new phone, they only see five contacts (four of which, they claim, they have ever contacted on WhatsApp), and they don't see the two contacts they talk to most often.

When a contact calls them, their old phone 'rings' but their new phone does not.

The most important question is, how do I get their new phone to ring, so they can receive incoming calls on their new phone?


Thanks,

Alan.

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, 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 !
