Android

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++).

I don't think there is any such software since I've been searching for days but I thought I'd ask on here as a last ditch effort.
I am looking for music management software (that runs on Windows) that supports both streaming from an Android device over the internet (ideally it has an Android app) and synchronizing an iPod.

My current set up:
  • iTunes as music management software, in order to synchronize my iPod.
  • CloudPlayer to stream from my Android device (all of my music is on Google Drive).
  • iSyncr to synchronize select playlists from iTunes to my Android device.

This set up isn't terrible but CloudPlayer does not feature all of the playlists I have in iTunes nor does it allow me to sort by iTunes fields (date added, etc.). I could technically just sync all of my music to my Android device as well but I don't really want to use up 40GB on my device for this purpose when I have a data plan large enough to support streaming on demand.

I know people who travel internationally quite often, and they need to:

1) select the countries of interest
2) view a combined calendar of holidays

I hope this exists.

Hello - we have Exchange 2010 OWA and I had a user who lost his Android phone in an airport.  We wiped it clean to be safe.  He later found the phone and we're trying to set it back up again, but OWA keeps wiping it clean.  I checked the OWA Manage User screen to see if it was set to keep wiping it, and I don't see that it is.  But its apparently stuck in a loop.  Anyone see this before?

Thanks

Hello,

I have two rather dated reaction time javascripts. They work fine however each have slight issues.
Please tell me if there are any quick fixes for:

1.
http://reflextest.net/reaction/color.htm

When viewed from an android tablet and android media box, the popup box that returns the user's result has the following extra language a the top: "the page at http://reflextest.net says:"

Is there any way around this, because it's bothersome. The browser on my tablet is FF and the browser on the android box is the generic android browser.

2.
http://reflextest.net/reaction/average.htm

Is there a way to add a reset button to the existing script so that the previous scores are deleted before the user plays again?

I have set my Android phone to sync with myemail@outlook.com and my desktop Outlook 365 to sync to the same account and even though both seem to show they are syncing, the contact lists are different. Can anyone help me fix.

To expand a little, in case it is relevant,
1. I have two yahoo IMAP accounts in my sync list, one of which is the default
2. I have 3 other Microsoft Exchange email addresses on different accounts that I am syncing too, PLUS myemail@Outlook.com
3. I am not trying to sync Outlook.com emails, just the contacts because that it's the only one I thought Outlook would sync with
4. The other 3 Exchange accounts seem to be syncing fine

I have Quicken 2015 Home & Bus...
I utilize the Quicken cloud and sync with my Android Quicken...

Somehow the password to the cloud has gotten corrupted...and I see no way to change it...
When I Cloud Sync I get error message " the Intuit ID entered does not match the ID used when this data file was
connected...[HTTP-401]...Go to Edit >  Preferences > Intuit Mobile and Alert and choose sign in as a different user to correct this problem...

I do not have another user to use for a sign in...and it tells me that I will no longer be linked to this file...No account will sync...

Now...I would like to delete the cloud file and start all over...and i guess this is the way to do it...

BUT....it does NOT tell me what happens to the data that is in the Quicken cloud...does it remain there or is it deleted when
I set up a new user...????

Any  thoughts appreciated...

Someone shares a Google calendar, and I need to be able to view it. I'd like to see it as a calendar in my Android Calendar app, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it. The only things I can find online are explanations of how to view different calendars in my own account(s), or to use the "Google Calendar App". But not to add an iCal link into the regular calendar application.

Any suggestions? (You'd think you could do this, given that Android IS a Google product.)

Our iOS devices are loaded with Maps.me so that we can use offline maps. We have a spreadsheet with a series of hyperlinks that will launch Maps.me and display the desired location. The Apple version of the hyperlink looks something like "ge0://_X-mwmlX3T/52015_Wood_Pol". If I SMS this link to an iOS device it will work as it should but when we try to launch it from a hyperlink in an Excel spreadsheet we get a message that says "The link address may be invalid, or you may not have permission to open it". I know it's not invalid because it works when copied and SMS'd so it's an issue of permission. Is there any way to get an iOS device to allow a hyperlink launch an app like this, or is that just too much for Apple products to cope with?

I am creating a program with Android and SQLite. I have two tables in SQLite. One table is called notes, another one is called note_category.

Here are the queries used to create the tables:

CREATE TABLE note_category (
"category_id" INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT,
 "category_name" TEXT,
);

CREATE TABLE notes (
 "note_id" INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT,
 "category_id" INTEGER,
 "note_description" TEXT,
 FOREIGN KEY("category_id") REFERENCES note_category("category_id"));

Here aremy constructor, and database initializer methods:

 public NoteDBHandler(Context context) {
        super(context, DATABASE_NAME, null, DATABASE_VERSION);
        this.context = context;
        SQLiteDatabase db = this.getWritableDatabase();
        dbPath = db.getPath();
        android.util.Log.d(this.getClass().getSimpleName(),"dbpath: "+dbPath);
    }

    @Override // here I am trying to enable the foreign keys
    public void onOpen(SQLiteDatabase db) {
        db.execSQL("PRAGMA foreign_keys=ON");
    }

 @Override
    public void onUpgrade(SQLiteDatabase db, int oldVersion, int newVersion) {
        db.execSQL("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS " + TABLE_NOTE_CATEGORY);
        db.execSQL(TABLE_NOTE_CATEGORY);
        db.execSQL("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS " + TABLE_NOTE);
        db.execSQL(TABLE_NOTE);
    }

I created some methods to retrieve the data from the tables and store them into arrayLists of objects:

  public List<Notes> getAllNotes() {
        // …

How can I easily detect malware on smartphones? I have some on my network with strange behavior after a security incident. Unfortunately they were on the same network as the attacked machines.

I'm looking for a small GPS tracking device that can be put on devices such as laptops or keychains that can then be tracked to its exact location using a GPS tracking system.

I've already looked at systems such as the Trackr device (https://get-trackr.io/) but this device relies on the Trackr tracking device coming into 100 feet of an iPhone or Android phone that hasthe Trackr app installed on it.

What are some other GPS tracking devices that can truly track the GPS tracking device no matter where it goes?

I have 4 video on my YouTube Channel, and can see them listed on my iPhone7 and my Desktop when I click the "YouTube" icon on my website. My unique URL is the href for that anchor tag.

But it fails when I follow these steps from a Tablet (Note 4, running Kit Kat). It brings me to my Channel, but does not list any videos.

Is there a privacy issue blocking them?

When I load the browser and go to YouTube.com, then search for my channel, it works fine.

Suggestions?

Hi

I have moved from windows 10 mobile to a Huawei p10 lite. We use office 365 business premium for email, calendar and contacts. I have installed outlook for android and it syncs up ok but even though all my contacts are in People they dont haveall the contact pictures. In fact no contact has their profile picture.

Any ideas on how to fix that would be great. As I use outlook contacts as my defacto contact list.

Thanks

Hello experts - a personal question for a change...I'm looking to replace my Samsung Galaxy S7 with a new phone.  I'd really like to find one that is fully rooted from the factory or can be easily rooted myself so that I can decide when to do updates and what apps get installed.  Are there any phones out there that come this way without having to jump through crazy hoops?

I sometimes log into Experts Exchange (EE) from my phone using my phone's browser, typically if I see an interesting question in an email and click the link.

My default browser is Ghostery although Chrome is also on the phone. For a long time there was no problem logging into the EE site. A couple days ago I noticed that I cannot log into the site through Ghostery. I get either an unknown user or an incorrect username/password error message. But I can log into the EE site through Chrome with no difficulty.

The phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 running Android 5.0. A couple changes on the phone recently: I installed the LastPass Premium password manager app (but I am entering the EE username/email and password manually.) I recently uninstalled and reinstalled Ghostery.

Ghostery is set to accept cookies. I don't see other Ghostery settings that seem likely to affect the login but perhaps I am overlooking something.

Any suggestions what to try so that I can once again log into EE with Ghostery?

Thanks,
Pete

My problem is with an app that has been written for me, running on a Samsung Tab A, where I cannot get the soft keyboard to pop up anywhere in the app.  A bluetooth barcode scanner is paired, and I also have the Android setting turned on that says "Show on-screen keyboard".   And if I go into the "Memo" app that came with the tablet--similar to WordPad--I can scan barcodes into it, or I can touch the screen and the soft keyboard pops up.  Same with Chrome...if I touch the bar where you key in the URL, it pops up the keyboard like it's supposed to--and I suppose I could scan data into that same line.

But in this app written for me, I can scan in data with no problem, but I can't get the soft keyboard to pop up.   The developer  blames it all on me, insisting there is nothing he can do.  He keeps saying that there is nothing in his code that would suppress the soft keyboard.  But he won't tell me whether there is anything that will "activate" the keyboard.

I'm not at all familiar with this C# code written for a Xamarin environment.  But one thing I'm wondering is this: On an Android device, if you touch a textbox, is the soft keyboard supposed to pop up by default--or do you have to include code to tell it to do so?  I'm wondering if maybe he is missing some code that will tell the program to pop up the keyboard.

I do understand that the Settings need to be set up right, as outlined above, but they are--as evidenced by programs such as Chrome and that Memo app allowing…

I get a security warning from Outlook (desktop app in Windows) about an invalid certificate.

I've had a similar warning on my Android device for weeks, but the warning in Outlook appeared today. On the PC, I can see that autodiscover.msn.com gets a certificate issued to outlook.com.

On the Android device, I just get a suspicious warning about an invalid server certificate.

I don't think there anything I can do to fix this issue. It's probably a redirect issue on the server? My email account is a very old hotmail account on the msn.com domain, and a few years ago I added and outlook.com alias, and later I set that as the primary address for the account. Maybe that's not a very common thing to do.

Also Outlook 2016 has become extremely slow lately, and it hangs and displays disconnected and warning icons. Maybe this behavior is related to the security issue, but I'm not sure.

I've tried removing the account and adding it back - and not only the msn.com/outlook.com account, but all email accounts in Outlook. Didn't make any difference.
