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++).

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.

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 !

I am trying to learn from scratch and at this rate, I'll need ages to try even the most basic things

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 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?

Hi All,

My 8 year old deleted some game data from his tablet (Amazon Fire).  I'd like to see if i can recover it using FAT32 recovery software.

When i connect the tablet to my Windows 10 laptop I can access the drive via > Computer > Fire > Internal storage



When i scan my hard disks using the file recovery software is cant see drive.

I can only guess this is because it shows up in device manager as a Portable Device.



Is there a way to make the drive as a regular drive?  either by mounting or connecting to another PC and accessing remotely



Many thanks

Hi,

I work on a nativescript angular application and wanted to schedule some tasks (example: each 10 minutes) where I do http requests, call my angular services, ...
Now, when the android phone is locked and charging there are no issues, but when the phone isn't charging and locked that's when stuff goes wrong.
The call is still handled (so my function gets handled), but my http calls take ages, and when I wake up the phone everything operates normally again.

Is there something I can do to go around this ? To have the http requests etc still going

Tested on galaxy s7

Lync 2013 with Exchange 2013 - The Lync Contacts that sync over to our Android and iOS mobile devices end up with a " + " prefix on the phone numbers. This causes the call to fail, as this makes it look like an international call to the phone carrier. You can manally Edit and remove the + sign, but I would like to prevent the issue entirely.
   I haven't found anything online yet on the subject, but I will keep looking. Probably my syntax.
   Our Mobile Device Management system is Mobile Iron, but I am thinking this must be an issue relating to Lync 2013 and Exchange ActiveSync.

Thanks!
