What are some other iPhone X apps like Peel that will allow me to change channels on DirectTV systems without having to have the remote control for a RC73 or RC66 DirectTV system?
iOS 12 released today. Anybody running it yet? I'll be installing on my kids device later tonight and setting up the Screen Time features that came out.
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:

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:

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.

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?
Lately, when I have been taking pictures with my iPhone X some of the pictures have been captured as movie files (.MOV) instead of just regular pictures (.JPG files).

How can I change this so that when I use the camera app on my iPhone it will only capture picture and won't capture movie files?
Dear expert,

c) does Md513ll/A support latest IOS (as of Aug 2018) ?

We have an old Cisco 1800 in a test lab.  The two network interface are configured as follows:

FastEthernet 0/0

FastEthernet 0/1

The default gateway for PCs on the 6.X network is 6.33 - that is how they can get to the 5.X network.
The default gateway for anyone on the 5.X network is 5.1 (another router with Internet access).
The router with Internet access (5.1) has a static route so it can pass traffic to 6.X from 5.x via (interface on the Cisco 1800).
All systems on the 5.X network can get to Internet no problem because their gateway is 5.1 and it can either send traffic to Internet or back to Cisco for access to 6.x network.
PROBLEM - All systems on the 6.X network CANNOT get past the 5.X network when trying to reach Internet.

Question #1 - How can we tell the Cisco router that traffic coming from 6.X needs to get to the Internet via the router on 5.1?
Question #2 - Do we need tell the router on 5.1 (a Sophos UTM, not cisco) anything about the 6.X network that is not directly connected to it?

We have an old Cisco 1800 in a test lab.  
The two network interface are configured as follows:

FastEthernet 0/0

FastEthernet 0/1

Each interface is connected to an un-managed Netgear 5 port switch
Each Netgear switch also has a couple of PCs that are configured with an IP on the respective network (either 192.168.5.X or 192.168.6.X)
For some reason, we CANNOT pass traffic from a device on one switch to a device on the other switch through the Cisco router.
This was working in the past, but lab has not been used in several months.
Bottom-line, it is not routing traffic between and then beyond to the destination IP.
I can't provide the config because it is in an isolated environment.
However, when I do a show run, one of the lines says:
no ip routing
From the router via telnet, I CAN ping a device on either the 192.168.5.X or 192.168.6.X network
Also from either side, I can ping as far as interface 0/0 or interface 0/1 so it seems to know how to pass traffic that far
It just won't pass traffic beyond that to another device on the opposite side.
Any help would be appreciated.  I feel like we are just a couple of commands away from getting this router properly working.

Display issue with bootstrap Col 4 and 8. between android and apple.


apple once doesnt look like the apple one ? and im not sure why all it is bootstraps col-sm-4 . and col-sm-8 wrapped in bootstraps row.

this is only in apple phones not android.

is also display correctly on chrome but not saferia
When connected to WiFi, why is it that sometimes I get a "Message Send Failure" when I send a text. other times, I have no problem.  
I'm running iOS v11.4.1
I have had a few people tell me that when trying to visit a site using safari on their iPhones, they get an error that says:

Safari cannot open the page because the server cannot be found.

I asked other people to test on their iPhones and they said it works fine. After asking Google about this it seems that the answer is always something to do with the phone itself. But, it is not realistic to ask everyone with an iPhone to check this setting, and check that setting in order to try use the website.

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding this?

We have mobile application, which is developed using  ionic one, CoffeeScript and angular one. When we build the application for the android and web, all images are showing correctly. But we build same application for IOS it not showing the images. Image path is correct and images is available inside of application bundle folder.

Also this application use cordova plugin file for the file management. All the images are getting from IOS application bundle.

When we build for IOS there is no errors or warnings.
I'm choosing between a used iPad Mini 3 vs Mini 4:

The difference in price between both from a refurbished dealer is US$20
(for 16GB, both with Wifi : guess they don't have cellular built in).

Is it worth the US$20 to go for Mini 4?  I heard Mini 4 can go for a later
versions of IOS (security patches & bugs), is this crucial?
Move from Beta-

Published iOS app about 18 months ago using Xamarin Studio.  Now that its Visual Studio 2017, need to recreate Apple certificates and profiles and then use fastlane to install them on my Mac.  App builds fine and it runs on an iPhone attached to my Mac.  Looking for a consultant who can help me with this process.

We using Salesforce with this link :
We have ADFS 2.0 to use the SSO on Salesforce.

ADFS 2.0 is configured to be IWA.

Problem is, on the mobile app, Salesforce for IOS or Android doesn't allow IWA (NTLM) connection. It only accept FBA.

How can I configure my ADFS or another thing to stay IWA for internal users and FBA for external users (from mobile).

Thanks in advance

Thanks a bunch -
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?

The user has been getting all sorts of advertising popups when reading email on their iPhone 6  with latest IOS.
They have several accounts, but only the AOL account is producing all sorts of advertising when they try and look at mail in AOL mailbox.

Is there a way to get rid of these ads that are preventing email from being read?

Anyone here have experience implementing and managing a good parental control app on their child's iOS device(s)?

I'd prefer one that does not utilize a VPN (too easy to disable) and does not require the client to be on wifi. It should function on both LTE and WiFi. I don't care if the product is overly complex. I just want a reliable tool to be able to monitor usage, disable Internet access on the fly, potentially set time limits at the app-level and make sure the entire app can't be easily skirted by my kid.

There are so many different products on the market, there are hundreds of unhelpful review sites and the actual app-store 'user reviews' are full of negative comments made by people who have minimal technical experience. It's made the process of narrowing down the selection, extremely cumbersome.

I'd like to hear your personal experience with specific apps and what the shortcomings were that you ran up against. I expect I'll have to make concessions as far as functionality goes, so I'm hoping to hear about potential dealbreakers.
