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++).

Take a measurement if all you have available is a cell phone.

The other day, I wanted to take a measurement of some rubber pads that are screwed into the underside of a portable set of bleachers in the gymnasium of my church. I did not have a tape measure and so I did the next best thing and took the picture attached to this message.

Ideally, I would like to find an app, that will allow me to get an accurate measurement when all I have with me is a cell phone.

I have tested several apps in the past and so far haven't identified anything that really works, so some assistance here is greatly appreciated.

Google's keyboard replacement is excellent because it contains both a clipboard tool as well as a tool for inserting gifs.

However, it poses a challenge that I have been unable to resolve so far.

If I am forwarding an e-mail and go to "insert text", There appears to be no way to move the existing text to the next line.

This is because of the blue button on the keyboard that starts out as a 'new-line' or 'return' key, but changes to a 'send' key instead.

Thanks for Nobus for correcting my terminology here.

Assistance in further clarifying the potential solution to this problem is greatly appreciated.

Other than Factory Reset, what precautions can I use to DEEPLY erase a used Android Phone that I've gotten?  Need some EXTRA level of erasing before I apply all my data to it.

One idea that occurred to me: activate phone with a dummy account.  Turn on video, and just let it run until all the memory has been written over.

Then: Factory Reset again, add REAL account.

What's a good way?

Many thanks,

Our Android phone keeps losing its messaging function. It will receive notices about Gmail, but if we're waiting for a notification to come in from say twitter, because we need a code to help us log in, that type of message isn't arriving.

We've fixed it a few times by going into apps, then messaging, and deleting the cache and storage, then rebooting. But it's a huge pain to have to do that, and it takes 15 minutes or more for that to work.

Anything we can do?

Say, My Android phone is backing up call log history to google drive. I can view the file under backups in Google Drive. How do I download this file and inspect it? I want to view the raw data.

Does Google keep older backups or each time over right them and if so is there a setting or way to keep a history of backup files?

I am interested in buying a an Android PC suite phone manager. After doing extensive research I was able to limit my choices down to 3 products. All seem to be the best as far as feature rich,compatibility and ease of use. These are Dr.Fone , TunesGO {I believe both products are available from Wondershare.com vendor}and lastly Apowersoft phone manager. I would like to know if the 2 products by wondershare
are the same and if not what is the difference between them? lastly which one would be the best PC suite phone manager to buy from all three. For backup, recovery purposes. Please if possible provide me with a comparison chart of these 3 product. I was unable to find anything on Google and I spent a lot of time doing so.
Thank you,

Hi,

I read this article from MS about basic authentication which is not supported anymore on October 13th, 2020:

What does it mean for users like me who still use Mail (default app) in my Android 4.5? We use active sync and IMAP.

I'm planning to build an Android and iPhone app that allow users to post questions. However, users won't necessarily have to register to post their questions. They can simply post a question straight right after installing the app. On the other hand, users can register and login to post their questions. The advantage of registering is users will be able to keep history of their posts and the like.

I want to allow non-registered users the option to register and get all their posts that were posted before registration to be moved into their registered accounts atomically. For example, if a user downloads the app and asks 3 questions before registration. After the third question, the user registers, logs in, and continues to post questions. I want the 3 questions that were posted before registration to be part of/moved to the registered account so when user logs in, the user can see the 3 questions in the logged in account. Is this possible?

I thought of capturing device ID when a user posts a question without registration and then when a user signs up, I will capture the signed up user's Device ID and if the signed up device ID matches the device ID of the posts that were posted without registration, I'll shift all of these posts into the signed up account because the signed up account has device ID that match posts device ID. Does it sound like a good idea?

I'm currently brainstorming the workflow of the app. I don't have codes on hand yet.

I need to create several hundred email addresses. I would prefer to create Google accounts and use the Gmail addresses. These need to be free accounts and not G Suite for Business accounts.

These are not for spamming or scamming. Rather, we are a non-profit organization configuring several hundred Kindle devices for students in remote areas around the world. To do this, we need to create hundreds of Amazon accounts using hundreds of unique email addresses. While the creation of the Amazon accounts will be laborious, I think I can do it. We will configure one device per Amazon account, and each account will purchase 60 books. I would like to use Gmail addresses/Google accounts for email, as I am not yet sure if we will be using Kindle, Kindle Fire, or the Kindle app on an Android tablet. If we go with the app, then we will need to use Google Play, which will require a Google Account.

Once each device is loaded and configured, the email/Gmail/Google account as well as the Amazon account (and loaded device) will be handed over to the end user who will take ownership of the Amazon and Google account. We will be providing these as gifts; we are not reselling accounts and devices.

What is the best way to create many Google accounts without raising red flags? In the end, we need around 250 accounts. We don't need to create them all at once.

Dear Experts,

My company has 9 Samsung Tablet A, 8.0".  The Android version is 8.1.0.  One of the users deleted a picture from the gallery on one of the tablets.  He called me to see if I could retrieve it.  I understand that the Samsung tablets do not have a trash can; therefore, the picture is permanently deleted; however, I understand that there is some Android recovery software on the market that will recovery deleted files from tablets; therefore, I checked into some Android recovery software.  Even though most of the recovery software says it will recover from your phone, it also appears to work on your tablet as well.  I tried one piece of software, Coolmuster's Lab.Fone for Android; however, it appeared to not even look at the files deleted from the gallery.

So, my question for help is:  In your experience, what is the best software (it doesn't have to be free) to recover deleted files from a Samsung tablet's gallery?


Thank you,

Phone - clean
Minimal online presence, no social media use, no FB, no Google/Gmail account (not on my phone either), no Verizon syncing on my phone, no syncing at all except to my personally run server for my mail.

We have a proprietary and patented video processing software that we license to others and we use on our own sites.  A couple or our sites/apps get approximately 3 million page views per month and are on the verge of profit.  The plan is to expand/scale the sites we own in the next six to twelve months.  This scaling presents us with a opportunity to update everything in our system.  Even though they were launched only a few years ago, so much has changed that we are forced to look at the whole architecture from hosting to platforms and development environments, etc.  We are truly a garage startup and have to make the most of limited resources while trying to present a high quality solution.  It is difficult and stressful.  We cannot afford to get this wrong thus my appeal to the many experts here. We are starting with a clean slate and very much need to hear from experienced professionals to help us put together the best possible system from the top down.

Server/website -  up to now we have used dedicated hosting.  It appears that VM is now a good and much less expensive option.  I am OK with that.  In speaking with other insiders it seems that more and more people are going toward utilizing Azure or Amazon for hosting.  We do have licensees in Europe who must be served by hardware in Europe due to latency issues.   I think Azure or other allows a much quicker provisioning of another instance in whatever geographical area needed, that we can then customize …

Today, I had an interesting experience. I had left my phone plugged-in and attached to the windshield of my car while I was in a gymnasium at my church.

I noticed some kids that didn't look like the usual crowd gathering inside the gym but didn't really think anything of it until I got back outside to my car.

I received a message that the firmware on my phone had been flashed with an unsupported version.

The message soon went away, and the phone proceeded through some significant updating.  It had a percentage in the middle of a rotating wheel with dots around the outside of it.

Since my phone is back to normal now, nothing appears to be wrong, but I am still concerned none-the-less.

It is a Galaxy Note 8.

I need some tips on how to check to see if I have the correct firmware for my device since I am no longer getting any messages to the contrary?
