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++).

Hello Experts - I have two phones, one Galaxy S9 for personal use and one iPhone 6s for work.  I'm wondering if there is an app or setting I can use that will forward all of my calls and SMS texts from my work phone to my personal phone.  I see a few apps that are more geared towards spying/monitoring that might work but I figured its worth asking before I get into that.

BACKGROUND
We are on the floor of a convention and trying to connect our linux machine to our Android hot spot. There are too many WiFi hotspots and we cannot find the one from our phone.

QUESTION
On our Linux machine, how to find the hotspot that is being generated by our Android phone? Is there a way to search for the specific hotspot name? Is there a way to turn off the other 100 or more hotspots that are filling up the queue?

Hi

I use Twitter, Telegram & RSS feeds to follow new security treats. I also have many groups and users I follow in LinkedIn.

The problem and question:
Each time I start the LinkedIn app all contributions are unsorted. As an example, I have posts that came 1h before, then 6 days ago and the last 2h ago. Why is this so? With Twitter, Telegram, RSS feeds all are sorted as they were posted. The other annoying thing is that when I click the home button it jumps to the uppermost post. Then I must go down to the last post I red. If I still remember it ... :-)

How are you following LinkedIn contributions? Do you use another app?

Thanks for helping me

I got an Amazon Fire HD 8. How can I remove/move around the icons on the Home screen so that the ones I use most often are at the top and the ones I will not be using are not visible. I can see that it is not possible to uninstall these without some Android jiggery-pokery but I want to see if I can at least get them off my home screen or re-organise them...

When I read the number of permissions some Android apps need, I fee stunned.  How do you experts react when you see this much authority being asked for?  Looking at the list below, for a VERY popular app, seems like, if the developed wanted to, from his keyboard he could open up my phone and very nearly know everything that's on it.  Am I right?  What's the risk here?  And, how do you manage it?  

I believe in the newer Android I can manually disable each one of these permissions.  I'm guessing that will affect the app performance in the long run.  

But, from the time the app is installed, if it takes me 5 to 10 minutes to drill down to each permission and turn it off, by that time couldn't a bad actor have pretty much imaged my phone with all the permissions seen here?

This app has access to:
Device & app history
retrieve running apps
read sensitive log data
Phone
directly call phone numbers
Photos/Media/Files
read the contents of your USB storage
modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
Storage

full network access
close other apps
change your audio settings
control Near Field Communication

Hello,

I wrote an Android app in Delphi Seattle. It transfers data from a database from another.
The problem is that when the phone enters in display sleep mode, the app stops transferring. When the screen is on again it will continue where it left it.

How can I set it to work in display sleep mode?

Thank you very much!

A client is migrating to Office 365 from a hosted Exchange.

They are fixing the AutoComplete/nk2 file for desktop and laptops, no problem.

However, best method to do this for Android and iPhone?

As in Autofill for recipient addresses as this will not be migrated when they remove the previous e-mail account and then add the new one.

We are focussing on Outlook. So if they were using native we are going to push them to the Outlook client.

This project is just starting, so would appreciate any speedy comments please.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Team !

I just wanted to ask if there is a way to back up SMS ,call logs and contacts from your android smart phone in increments (like dropbox) ?

Is there a way to retrieve SMS , call logs and  contacts if ever you lose the phone  ?

Is there a way to trace the device if it is offline  ? If not what would be the best options as far a tracking the  device and remotely wiping off the data ?

New Samsung phone ,and I don't want to go through it again......

Hi Android Experts,

I'm after an app/program that will allow me to organize all the icons on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX phone using my computer.

I recall being able to do this with my iPhones because iTunes displayed the phone configuration on screen and I could drag and drop apps and icons around on my computer screen while my phone was connected, and then the iPhone would update itself with the changes I'd made. I found this highly helpful and an easy way to organize my icons.

I have a LOT of icons and apps installed on my Android phone and organizing them the way I like in a native way on the phone I find to be a pain, so I'd like something that will allow me to do it the way iTunes let me do it with my iPhones.

Ie: Display my Phone screen configuration on my Windows 10 computer screen and allow me to organize my icons using my computer and then have my Android Phone update itself to the configurations that I'd selected on my computer screen. I'm happy to pay for a program to allow me to do this, so it doesn't have to be free.

I've looked through Google Play Store and see a lot of App Organizers, but they all seem to be just apps that are only installed on the Android phone, rather than allow me to connect the phone to the computer and do my organizing there.

Ie: Connect my phone to the computer so I can use my computer to update the icon positions on my phone instead.

Either this isn't available, or perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms on …
