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++).

My home Wi-Fi can't access certain websites and would forever load until it throws up an error state. When I'm connected via ethernet, it works fine, so I know the Wi-Fi has issues. I also want to add that my printer normally prints via Wi-Fi and lately it hasn't been connecting. I'm having to hardwire my printer to my Macbook.

Notes:
  • The devices I'm using are Macbook and Android phone.
  • This problem started roughly three months ago. No changes have been made to my Wi-Fi (that I know of).
  • I tried changing the DNS. It worked for a day but now the problem continues to exist.
  • I've reset the modem/router.
  • I've tried accessing aforementioned websites on different browsers. Same problem.

My memory of my andrioid phone is low. I moved all my music to my SD card.

Afterwards, I find that the music player come with my Android phone can't recongize the SD card location. I can only read from internal phone.

Is there any free android music player that can read the music on my SD card directly ?

Thx.

I have a contactList = new ArrayList<>(); where I store information in this format: "name", value_for_name.

I populate my contactList inside this function:

protected Void doInBackground(Void... arg0) {
            HttpHandler sh = new HttpHandler();

            // Making a request to url and getting response
            String jsonStr = sh.makeServiceCall(url);



            Log.e(TAG, "Response from url: " + jsonStr);

            if (jsonStr != null) {
                try {
                    JSONObject jsonObj = new JSONObject(jsonStr);

                    // Getting JSON Array node
                    JSONArray contacts = jsonObj.getJSONArray("results");

                    // looping through All Results
                    for (int i = 0; i < contacts.length(); i++) {
                        JSONObject c = contacts.getJSONObject(i);

                        String icon = c.getString("icon");
                        String id = c.getString("id");
                        String name = c.getString("name");



                        // tmp hash map for single contact
                        HashMap<String, String> contact = new HashMap<>();

                        // adding each child node to HashMap key => value
                        // contact.put("id", id);
                        contact.put("name", name);
                        // contact.put("email", icon);


                        // adding contact to contact list

Hello

I would like to learn React Native and I have seen various tutorials including this one

 (https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/getting-started.html).

There are 2 guides: the quick start and the building projects with native code. The quick start uses Create React Native App  and the other one requires you to install all the dependencies: Node, the React Native command line interface, Python2, a JDK, and Android Studio.

Would you advise the  Create React Native App as a quick way to get started or is it better to do the full set up? I have not used react native so I am guessing if I want a quick intro to it I could use  Create React Native App and then if I find I use it then do the full set up? I'm also wondering  if I use Create React Native App as a quick way to get started will I learn unhelpful idiosyncrasies of that tool that I will need to unlearn or is it better to start with the 'full' set up.

The link to get Create React Native App is https://github.com/react-community/create-react-native-app and I have been advised in another question to use https://github.com/nodesource/distributions for Node

I dont have a specific use in mind for react native but it is a technology that seems to be growing that I know nothing about so I would like to find out a bit about it. I have been told it is 'the future' for phone apps. I write games in javascript that run in web pages on a pc but would like to move to games on phones and tablets with …

[Webinar On Demand] Database Backup and Recovery

Does your company store data on premises, off site, in the cloud, or a combination of these? If you answered “yes”, you need a data backup recovery plan that fits each and every platform. Watch now as as Percona teaches us how to build agile data backup recovery plan.

I have tried on 3 machines (Win 7) and 3 mobiles (Android) but only one combination shows up as COM3 in Hyperterminal.
My purpose is to send SMS via Serial port. I can send successfully from this one combination.
I want the others to work too. All mobiles connect to the machine and I can access the Internal and External drives.

By COM3 I mean COM1,2,3,4....

Hi All,

I have never used wireless printing from a tablet or much from a PC to be honest.

I have 2 android tablets (Kitkat & Lollipop) and would be interested in anyone's recommendations of who the best printing manufacturer would be to go with.

I would like to buy a relatively budget inkjet printer but I suspect the most important part of this is choosing the right manufacturer who has a simple to use app and decent levels of cross platform compatibility.

The amount of usage will be very low with 1 or 2 pages of emails or tickets being printed a week

Hi.
I have the Note 8 & received the free microSDXC evo plus 128gb SD card. Problem is, I can't seem to save what I want to it. I first, dropped it in my note8 & attempted to copy from my windows 10 laptop & I kept getting device not found after maybe copying 1 dir. so I then tried to put the new Sd in the microSD adapter. Still no luck. Then I tried copying from my S4 to my Note8. No luck. I tried formatting it on the Note8, which formats it but copying. No luck.

Samsung memory support suggested I do a clean with DiskPart which works but attempts to format returns device not found.

I've came across a posting that indicated I needed to dwld & install "Note8 USB drivers" but can't seem to locate them anywhere.


This has been very frustrating for a free gift for buying the Note8 that I would expect to just insert and transfer to it at will until 119gb is full.  Very frustrating.


Any help or direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated....

I'd like to know how to get on this "smart" list.

just got a call on my android s7 that has a tag "smart" and shows the full name of the person calling. this person is not in my address book.

I'm assuming that my network/Telco is sending this extra info but where is it coming from?

(I'll try and post a screenshot as i can't while asking a question using the app)

So I think I'm dealing with a buyer with buyer's remorse.

I sold my Galaxy S7 Edge on eBay after unlocking it and then doing a factory reset.  As part of the phone setup (when you turn it on) Android asks for a google account to associate with the phone, but so far as I know that's optional and you can "skip".  I recall that from before the reset and I had the same thing with my new phone.  I've never heard anyone suggest that after a reset and when doing new setup that you have to put in the account that was previously used for the previous setup.

Can I get confirmation from some expert here that this buyer is spouting non-sense?  I can't understand how a factor reset would leave the phone in anything but a clean state or that Android upon starting would require the entry or association of the phone during setup with any previous Google account.

Hi Friends.
I need some advice, but please do if you have any experience.
I need to install Driver E-Log on 10 tablets and handle it to my company drivers.
My boss request is to lock any other apps, preventing drivers to use internet
I went to Google PlayStore and I've found a lot of apps and I've tested 10
The problem is that any of this apps not locking itself (except Perfect Applock) so anyone can go to settings, or if settings are locked too, they can put finger on this applock app and uninstall will shows up. So bottom line anyone can uninstall app, so they can go to internet finally.

Perfect Applock has option to self lock to prevent shot down but this setting can be disable in Settings and settings is not protected, so bottom line useless.

So maybe someone of you using some AppLock app on Android and can suggest me one, that is going to lock apps I select and is going to lock itself and without password no one will be able to uninstall it.
 

Thank You in Advance.

Hi All

We have some Honeywell Ct50 devices running on Android 6.0.1.

It has a suppliers app installed and we remotely manage the devices using Air Watch.

Yesterday both of these apps disappeared from the device, however, after restarting the device they are there again and started automatically as we like them to.

This is a one of event but I'd still like to have some kind of understanding of why it happened, the user of this device has no idea but did they put the device into a different mode and my concern is without Air Watch running we lose the ability to remotely manage the device.

I suspect we have not got the security locked down enough and this technically allows users to inadvertently change settings or potentially wipe the device.

Is it possible to send a screencast "as a link" to a cell phone?

A screencast is different than a traditional video because it uses movements on your screen as opposed to being from a camera.  I have the following. For years I have used Jing for this. It can be downloaded from techsmith.com/jing and it is amazing! However, recipients cannot view video from it if they are on a cell phone because Android and Apple phones do not seem to support Adobe Flash, at least in many cases.

Is it possible to provide a screencast complete with audio "as a link" instead of as a file to someone viewing it from a cell phone?

one of our corporate applications have recently issued a windows/android app for smartphones, to give the users an alternative to using their web app. the suppliers are a relatively small company. Some of the end user smartphone devices are currently not encrypted, but the suppliers say this is not a show stopper as security is 'contained' within the app itself. The login to the app is single factor authentication, username/password. how practical is it that security for an app would be 'contained' within itself, so if someone lost the smartphone with the app itself there would be no data specific to the app accessible on the devices storage. And perhaps more relevant what type of testing would you suggest to see what data specific to the app is stored and retrievable on the phone itself? or what types of security sensitive data do/could apps leave on the phones themselves and what could be retrieved if the device was lost/stolen?

Hello,

I have 5.1 Android.

I attached two screenshots.
-the internal storage has 285 MB free space
-the usb storage has 6.98 GB free space
-the Sd card has 21.59 GB free space

However, I can not even install an app with size as small as 6.05 MB because it says that I need to free 20.38 MB space!

Am I missing something or is the system buggy?
What should I do?

Thank you very much!

hi,
I'm using an open source Android app to scan barcodes: https://github.com/zxing/zxing

I want to access data as it's recorded in realtime, how can i find where the data is stored on my phone?

I can see the data within the app, but where is this data stored? I can use ES file explorer to see the phones files/folders, eg acct, cache, config etc but nothing obvious comes up. I tried searching  eg for 5000149029004 but no luck.

Thanks
