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++).

We send an SMS with a URL (e.g. mydomain.com/whatever)
The custom app "ABC" installed on the phone has "mydomain.com" as "supported links"
Using Android Messages, no problem, it launches ABC.

However using Samsung Messenger or Messages, clicking on the URL just opens the website.
In other words, it ignores the Settings for ABC.

Forcing users to install Android Messages is not an option for us.
What do you suggest?

Hello

I'm trying to take screenshots on the Samsung S8

Apparently this is done by pressing the right hand button along with one of the volume keys at the same time. All this seems to do is make the ringer volume go up or down.

I've tried this many times and it still doesn't work. Is there a setting I actually need to enable?

Many thanks in advance

There is a blue light Setting that basically reduces the brightness and supposedly the amount of blue light sent

But I'm not understanding this. The feature documentation says this is supposed to be enabled to help people sleep

But if I'm sleeping I'm not using my phone?

Or is this in case I wake up and check something ?

Or supposed to turn this feature on in the evening as I am starting to get tired so when I do check my phone it keeps me up less?

Hello

I understand with the Samsung S8 that there is the ability to view more than one app on the screen at the same time

Some questions

1. I know Mac can do this, can IOS iPhone and iPad

2. When I try this on a Samsung S8, i always seem to get the Settings as the first app and then any other app as the second. How can I get two real apps to run in multi screen

On the new Samsung Edge can there is a feature where the edge light will go off if there is a notification rather than a vibration or noise

Does anyone know

1. How to actually turn this on and simultaneously not have noise for notification

2. Does the S8 go into Do Not Disturb mode when someone puts it face down?

3. How can I control which notifications use this feature

I am trying to check for certain conditions, such as accessing the Internet and being able to read/write to a calendar and prompting the permissions if they are not already enabled. I cannot call the checkSelfPermissions() method on the ContextCompat class. It says that method does not exist.

Am I calling the method incorrectly or in the wrong place? My application is using API 23.

Please see the code below:
public void initializeCalendar() {

if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= 23) {
    if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(MainActivity.this,
            Manifest.permission.READ_CONTACTS))

    // write code to ask for permission

}

}

Open in new window


Can you give me some ideas on what is happening here?

Last week my Note 2's phone popped up the above message & while this message
is showing up, it won't allow any activity (reading, typing) etc in Whatsapp: it took
more than 15mins & I decided to power cycle it.

Presume its whatsapp messages/content being backup : does it backup to
the microSD card in the phone or to Cloud & how can I restore (ideally selective
restore of selected messages) ?

A few of our users have the password to our Wifi and have been issued IP addresses from the DHCP server.  Does this put us at risk for viruses getting into our network?

I'm trying to run commands in command prompt on PC,

npm install -g cordova
cordova platform remove <platform>
cordova platform add <platform>

The NPM part works fine, but when i try to run cordova lines it fails with unknown command cordova. I do have cordova installed since I use it in VS and can deploy to android and ios. I realise I'm somehow missing the path in system path but I cannot find anywhere on the net or computer where the cordova root is. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Primoz

Do not comment on gmail auto fetch; looking for other reasons battery is losing power.
Gmail auto fetch may be the main reason but I would like to know other reasons

I need to keep gmail auto fetch; but how can I save power

 Screen dims right after I touch, there is no screen light also
 Goes to blank (less than screensaver)

 Samsung galaxy s6
  android 7

  on light screen power
  not auto updating

  loses 5% per hour battery power when I sleep every night

  I don't know what apps I am running

  I need to respond to messages so I can not just turn phone off all day to save battery power

  Is there a setting where I can get
  1 app, gmail, messages, phone calls
  so that is 4 apps

  can I just run those 4 apps

I plan to release a book on PDF, at first. That's before I think about a printed version and before I invest in any particular platform.

1) On what devices will PDF not functionally work?
2) On what devices will PDF not work in practical terms?

I am most interested in making it available on many platforms, then I will be interested in offering it in the preferred technologies for certain platforms.

I would later consider a tool like Xamarin for cross-platform development. I will avoid native apps...

Thanks

full & whether to save into microSD (I can't recall the exact message).

Q1:
How can I choose what to save: say selective Whatsapp threads / groups    messages and images

Q2:
Can I choose to save photos in galleries & SMSes into the microSD as well?
