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++).

"sms backup and restore pro"
allows me to backup but provides too much extra information
The extra xml information looks like this
  <sms protocol="0" address="5551212" date="1500334066013" type="2" subject="null" body="I ONLY WANT BODY OF MESSAGE" toa="null" sc_toa="null" service_center="null" read="1" status="-1" locked="0" date_sent="0" readable_date="Jul 17, 2017 7:27:46 PM" contact_name="(Unknown)" />
 <sms protocol="0" address="5551212" date="1500334066013" type="2" subject="null" body="I ONLY WANT BODY OF MESSAGE" toa="null" sc_toa="null" service_center="null"

I had this question after viewing keeping pictures after wiping phone.


From a Home screen, tap Apps Apps icon > Settings Settings icon > Backup and reset. (Note These instructions apply to Standard mode only.)
Tap Reset settings.
Tap Reset settings again.
From the Warning prompt, tap RESET to confirm.

would fix all the problems I have since updating from android6 to android7?
Do I need a samsung account?
does the backup save all the email app and gmail app accounts
or do I need to re log in

Hello Experts,
We need a tablet that will only do one thing.  Use the internet browser... and will only browse to one site.
This will mainly be for providing information to those near the device, but want the ability to ask the user a multiple choice question also.

In a perfect world, each time the unit powered on, it would open up the browser and would go automatically to a pre-determined site (And would not be able to go to any other site)

Is it possible to force ANDROID or IPAD to start the browser as soon as it's turned on?  Based on what I've read on EE, it is possible on a windows machine... but assuming that a decent Windows Tablet is going to be a substancially higher price than say an ANDROID tablet.   Having it work on a cheaper unit would be preferable.

Plus with Windows 10 seems like the OS is going to be a lot more.... "overhead" (for lack of a better word) than is needed.   This website will literally be the ONLY thing this device will ever do.

I am attempting to put together a policy for mobile devices at my work.  This would include:

  • Laptops (Windows/Apple)
  • Apple - Ipads
  • Android Tablets

Phones, I can have the users login to the guest wifi for their cell phones but our tablets and such will need to be connected to out corporate wifi network.  It seems that in the near future different mobile devices will integrated with the corporate productivity and we will need it in order to stay competitive.

Question1:  Where are some legitimate anti-virus programs for mobile devices?

Question2:  Are these mobile anti-virus program necessary or not yet?
      a.  I would rather be proactive instead of reactive.

Question3:  What do you think about separating the work applications from the personal applications on a mobile device?
     a.  https://www.pulsesecure.net/products/#pulse-workspace
     b.  Its an interesting concept of putting your work related apps in a container that does not allow for cross contamination from other applications on that mobile device.


I wonder what other businesses are doing and what may be recommended?

We are an Microsoft Exchange environment .  We use Active sync to sync our 80 devices (iphones and Samsung galaxies) with exchange, Periodically ( 2 or 3 times a year ) I would delete/cleanup old  c$\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1 and also the W3SVC2 and W3SVC3 folders. They would have a tremendous amount of files and each file could be 30 MB or so.
Now in those folders the files are over 300 MB each and I have to cleanup these folders monthly.
I understand these are log files,  Is my exchange server a problem ? or are some of the smartphones having problems ?
What can I look at to see why these files have now grown 10 times what they were.

Any info is appreciated

Hello.

Do you know any Android app, that allows RTMP and zoom over streamed video? I found BS Player for Android but it only allows the zoom to the center of the video, not to the corners.

I appreciate any suggestions.

Onenote on Windows PC.  Onenote on Android phone.

Can turn off sync to the cloud in PC version.

Seems like I have to create an account to use Onennote Android.  After I do this, is there anyway I can sync between the PC and the phone but prevent the phone from syncing to the cloud?

Thanks!

According to THIS i am able to use the extra SD card to store apps:

   Once a card has been formatted as internal storage,  both your device internal storage and the card will show up as “device storage” under storage settings, and you will be able to  move applications which were in internal storage to the card. Moving applications to the card can be done from application settings (Settings > Apps > select application > Change storage location)
Once a card has been formatted as internal storage, Play Store will install applications on either storage volume automatically, based on a set of rules provided by the application developer (you will be able to move applications from one volume to another)

The card i added has been configured for internal storage. When i look at the storage settings, it's showing zero apps using the card. All the apps are in the phone's storage and none seems movable to the card. What gives?

Is it possible to pair  Mac keyboards with other devices, such as Android tablets or Windows computers or are they exclusively set to be pair with Apple devices?  

My co-worker said that they only work with Apple devices ... ... but wasn't the idea of Bluetooth that they should work with any device, especially mice and keyboards?

Hi
I have found Xamarin cross-platform, mobile device IDE
It seems to be real, working for every device type, Android, iOs ..iPhone, Windows

As introduced by this dude here

The coding is apparently done in Visual Studio? for C#   I'll need to rent the latest version, or get my client to pay rent for it.
I still have Vis Studio from mid 90's - CS 455 days  If I rent the Mac version of Windows.Visual.Studio, will that be foolish, for an app development on a MacBook?

Anyway, this is apparently a good solution for cross-platform PDA development. Is the interpreter set for Tablets, also?
Would you agree? Hackable? crashing problems?

Thanks

Using Akruto to sync Outlook to Android phone.  Only thing it is missing is an app to sync Tasks.  

Developer recommends Tasks & Notes for MS Exchange.  Need to use another one.  

I've been told that any app which is is getting the data from the native Calendar, Contacts, Task and Notes app in your Phone should work.  Need to know of any Outlook Tasks app for Android that does this.

Thanks!

Sincerely,

OT
