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++).

Currently in my home, due to a thick concrete wall, the corner when my bed
& reading desk is located can't reach the broadband Wifi even if I connect
a Vonets VAR11N repeater below to the Telco's Wifi router:
  https://www.amazon.com/VAR11N-300-Multi-Functional-Wireless-Portable-Repeater/dp/B01199OGK0/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1537179880&sr=1-1&keywords=Vonets+VAR11N&dpID=41v4vdqpDGL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

I then used a USB Wifi dongle plus a 6m USB extender cable to connect to
my laptop with dongle bypassing the thick concrete wall (with direct line-of
-sight to the router) & could now consistently get the Wifi signal:

Q1:
However, for my iPad & my Android phone (which sometimes I read on the
bed), is there something equivalent to the Netgear dongle that I could use
with a USB extender cable?  Ideally one solution for both iPad & Android
instead having to buy separate solutions.

Q2:
I ever seen a metal sticker which claims that once pasted onto the phone
will enhance the range of mobile phones' but lost that article : does this
work & can share an eBay/Amazon link to purchase?

I am considering using a Rasberry Pi as an SBC (single board computer) with Android O/S installed and programming with Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2  (C++ builder). Is there a library or other means of using the GPIO of the Rasberry Pi and other hardware features of the SBC ?

What are some reasons for not being able to ID my DNS server (specifically on my android phone)? My isp is At&t.  It's not that I don't have an address to lookup. It's more so that the windows nslookup command and the website https://www.whatsmydns.net/ yield no results.
Also, if someone could provide some mitigation steps or useful references  .

Much appreciated

Hello Community Members...

I have several mobile devices ONE is a 10.1" screen with SIM enabled (Like an iPad lol) so can get net on SIM

Now this is UNLIMITED data

If I played / streamed music on My mobile phone would have to use hotspot which the 10.1" provides RIGHT

But would use My allowance of hotspot

If played music from the "SIM enabled device" and hot spotted the mobile phone for data

Would that be UNLIMITED DATA from the 10.1" BUT keep within My hotspot limit for My mobile phone

OR WOULD BE ???

Both mobile devices using the hotspot allowance ??

All help VALUED with My current question

Issue with Apple users for Aruba virtual controller

http:/ sites are not trusted and as Apple users  have no choice about the connection.  Android users have the choice to accept or reject.  For the Apple users (all types) if I open safari and put in arubanetworks.com the browser will show the site and allow the connection.

Any ideas on how to sort this for Apple users?

We are looking to set up policies to restrict which Mobile devices are able to pair with ActiveSync. Under the phone and voice settings in the exchange control panel you have the option to set up ActiveSync policies based on device model or family.  Is anyone in here currently using this to manage their ActiveSync device partnerships and if not what are you using?  If you are using this what has been your experience with it?

After my kid helped me install Facebook, Messenger &
a few other apps (CamScanner etc), now I can't share out
my Whatsapp images via Gmail anymore:

After I selected an image in Whatsapp, select "Share", will
get to the 1st attachment which used to have an option for
Gmail but now it doesn't show the "Gmail" option anymore.
Instead when I tap on "Email" will get to the 2nd attachment's
screen which says "No email was set up" : previously it was
set up & there.

Hmm, I think I uninstalled Gmail app & disabled a couple of apps
 when I was low on storage space : could this be the reason?

Also, I've been getting beeping notifications sounds though there's
no new Whatsapp nor SMS messages coming in: could it be one of
the new app (Facebook, Messenger, ... ?)

Prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exam by learning how to troubleshoot, configure, and manage both wired and wireless networks.

Hi experts, I am trying to design an app that works with mobile devices and desktop computers.  I am designing the app with bootstrap and php, and everything works fine ON A DESKTOP COMPUTER (saving and retrieving cookies), but IT IS NOT working on mobile devices like android. Any suggestions on how to do it ? I am going to describe the situation

* The user Logs in , I verify the user name and password from a SQL database
* I want to save and retrieve the password in ALL webpages that the user browse into my domain
   This is so the user won't be needed to log in every time a page is loaded or reloaded (ex. to enter a NEW work order, the credentials would be already saved)

This system works in a PC mode because of the cookies BUT NOT on Android or apple devices, Any suggestions ? I just want to save credentials like a cookie, but I want to work in any environment (PC, apple or any mobile device connected to the internet)

I am open to suggestion that would work like saving cookies or something similar.

Tnx for your help

Can someone recommend noise cancelling headphones for the server room?  Should be compatible with Android USB-C.  
I used aviation-grade noise cancelling headphones long time ago.  Forgot the model.  And that was a landline in my cage.  
Thanks.

on my Android phone that has microSD card, I could copy PDF/Word
files into the SD card & read on the phone while travelling ie without
Internet/Cellular mobile data.

How can I do the same on my iPad mini (which does not have 4G/
Mobile Data) while I'm travelling (during long train journeys).
Anyway, I can save the PDF files locally in the iPad?

I could access my gmail while at home but is there any way to save
the PDF attachments while opening the gmail to save the PDF locally?

Don't want to buy an adapter if possible.

Have a Samsung S9+ Android Phone that I purchased and am very pleased with. It's the first Android phone I've ever owned and I think it craps all over all of the iPhone's I've used for many years :)

There are three things I'd like to get for it though and not sure what and where to purchase these items online.

1)  A decent phone holder to use in my car so I can use it hands-free. I just want something that will hold the phone firmly and allow me to talk while driving as I can get "Bixby" or "OK Google" to answer any calls for me by just using that feature.

2)  A good protective case for it that doesn't restrict any functions like the buttons and camera and hopefully, still being able to use my Finger to unlock the phone while it's still in its case.

3)  A suitable charging cable that will plug into my car's cigarette lighter socket.

Cost of the items is not so much of an issue, the quality of the products, however, is.

Can anyone suggest a good place to purchase the above items online?  

Also  perhaps suggest what you use for the above purposes if you own the same phone?

Thanks.

I have a Samsung SM-J727VPP cell phone.  I use Verizon service.  It’s an Android phone.
I need to save the text messages to a drive of some sort.  My understanding is the text messages are stored on the main memory in the cell phone.  I have text messages I have sent and received from my client and I want to save these in case there is a legal problem.  This has to be a concern for many people.

Question:  How do I export my text messages to some drive which I can connect to  a Windows 7 computer and save them for a long time?

What "security lockdown" method (i.e. Symantec EndPoint Mobile, etc) do you recommend for corporate Verizon Android phones that are connected to a 200 user onPremise Exchange Server to somehow lock down so users cannot

  1. install APPS on their phone, only allowing UPDATES for existing "IT approved" apps to work
  2. browse to websites that are on a blacklist/etc

I have a Dell 5810 workstation. I just added a usb bluetooth plug/dongle. My goal is to transfer photos that I took with my android cell to a folder on the 5810. I am sure it is a darn simple thing to do, but not without any instructions. I am lost. The product is  a Zexmte bluetooth module. It does say that the computer and the cell are connected. I just don't know how to proceed from here.

Experts, please note that I must get some sleep so will be unable to try your suggestions for a few hours. But try them I will as soon as I am available. The reason for needing this ability is that frequently I take perhaps 30 or 40 shots of one vehicle and need easily get them onto my desktop without the removal of the micro sd card. My phone is a Samsung S9+

I have an Asus RT-88U 3100 Ac router..about a year old.
I t is connected to CCI modem which is the internet provider.
I also have powerline  extenders for to plug into the walls in separate rooms for to pick up wifi instead of wireless.
Recently these extenders have not been working properly.
The android box that I was using became frozen and cannot be reset.
Then the WAN  connection on the router stopped working;and I had to return to wireless everywhere.
The light on the WAN indicator is always red now,
I cannot use anothe LAN as a WAN connection.
Finally I connected a cable from the WAN connection on the router to a LAN connection on the same router.
It still remained red
Does this mean that it is the ASUS router WAN connection that is at fault;and do you have any other suggestions?
Thank you,
Leo Boyle
