"Subject of the week | What are your favorite smartphone apps?"
Having recently switched from a Blackberry to an Android phone, I am discovering a whole new world of apps. However the main apps I have used so far other than social media are Gasbuddy for finding the best fuel prices, and Fuelly for tracking my fuel consumption.
I have also been looking into an application called Torque for live tracking of vehicle performance data, but have recently changed cars and want to see if it will still do what I want. In fact may even write an an article about that once I get it set up properly.

Gasbuddy sounds like an app I might try to use. Finding ways to save money is always fun :D

I am learning about a new interesting app every time someone is posting.  For sure I will try some of them.  I also remember when I moved to Sao Paulo (population 12 million) / Brasil I had to buy a huge, heavy book with the city directory, with the street maps. Sometimes to find a place it was a complete nightmare.  Nowadays, with google maps, it would be a dream.

Ok, what's Monster Joe's? Some quick googling just turned up references to the movie Pulp Fiction, some sort of BBQ sauce maker, and a Truck and Tow business.

Do you remember the explosion of SAMSUNG Galaxy Note 7 last year? It is the only smartphone which is not allowed to bring on an airplane.

In last month, SAMSUNG Galaxy Note 7 has been relaunched in South Korea and its name has been changed to SAMSUNG Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition).

Will you buy it?

Great explanation! I've been a fan of the Note series since the very beginning and I hope they've learned their lesson with the Note 7 because I don't see myself having another type of phone. I totally understand the competitive pressure with Apple and it's this competitive spirit that drives technology to improve (some improve more than others, ha!).

Another reason why Note 6 is skipped is Samsung Galaxy S6 is a failure from not even matching the sales of S5 and number 6 is an unlucky number and regarded as one of the taboos in C level executives of Samsung and is omitted from future smartphone naming except entry level product.

Hi,

I'm currently looking at building a small basic app that a few of my customers are looking for, however they all want it as their own unique app so I will need to whitelabel each release from one core set of code, instead of managing several different sets of code / apps.

All companies will have the exact same app features (which are very basic), however I will need to change the 'logo', 'app name' and 'main UI color' for each release.

Swift / iOS and Android Studio seem to have their own 'Whitelabel Management' feature so that you can have one code base and release variable releases from the code base.

So, you build one core app, and then you can release different builds with the variable settings.

QUESTIONS
01 - Has anyone ever used this approach before, and if so do you have any advice?
02 - Is anyone aware of any software (outside of Swift and Android Studio) that will manage code like this, as I might go the Hybrid approach with React Native.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello,

I made an app in Delphi Seattle.
The app sends an email to the user.
For this I deploy libcrypto.so and libssl.so.

Interestingly so far it worked well under Android 5 and 6 too, but now I noticed that it works well only with 5 but not with 6 and 7,

The error message is:

Error!
[EldOSSLCouldNotLoadSSLLibrary]
Could not load SSL library.

I read that starting with Android 6 Marshmallow, Google no longer supports OpenSSL on Android.

The question is what should I do so as the Android 6 and 7 users would get my email.

Thank you very much.

How can I prevent a Samsung Galaxy S8 from constantly prompting to join Wi-Fi networks?

If the phone finds a Wi-Fi network and has the password saved for that network I want it to join that network but otherwise if it finds a Wi-Fi network such as a Comcast Wi-Fi network that a Comcast subscriber can join I don't want it to prompt to join that network.

This Android phone also has the secure Wi-Fi app installed.

I'm going to be starting a project where I need to be able to answer my phone 24 hours a day.

I also need to be able to completely silence all other alerts from my phone so the only times I will be woken up will be if someone calls or texts my Google voice number.

Is there a way to completely turn off new call, email, & text alerts on Samsung Galaxy S8 accept for Google Voice alerts?

I just signed out of a Google Voice account on my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone.

I have logged in with another Google Voice account which is the one I want to have associated with my cell phone.

The problem is that when I make phone calls using my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone the caller ID for the most recent Google Voice account (510-xxx-xxxx) displays instead of the caller ID for the other Google voice account I have switched back to (415-xxx-xxxx).

I also remember that when I have set up Google Voice numbers in the past that these Google Voice numbers have given me the option to fully integrate Google Voice with my Sprint PCS phone (which is what I want to do now). However I am not given this option at this time.

What do I need to do to fix this issue so that the phone number associated with my 415 area code Google voice number will display whenever I make phone calls?

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We are moving from Fireeye MTP  to another product, considering Lookout .

Anyone can point me to or share reviews on Lookout?

Also, what are the assessment criteria I have to look out for considering that
our corporate phones (mostly iOS currently) & iPad are managed by
MobileIron MDM?

Email to be used is MI's email+  (not the native built-in email client)

I heard iOS is tailored from FreeBSD so I'm hoping to be able to do something like
"ps -ef |grep email_client_process"
if it's not there, then restart it.

Reason is our MobileIron email+ client kept getting killed by iOS as iOS sees it
as a 3rd party/foreign process.

any chance of doing this on an MDM controlled device?

Proofreading & Editing Techniques for Executives & Managers

pexels-photo-381949.jpegIt’s hard to spoil high-quality content… or not? When it comes to content marketing and the creation of different types of writing content, proofreading and editing is just as crucial as the research and writing itself.

Why? Because when you offer writing content to the audience, you have to make sure that it looks flawless. Errors and typos that might slip into your writing can ruin this impression as well as damage your reputation. They basically tell the audience either that you weren’t attentive enough and didn’t put many efforts into content creation or that you have some problems with grammar and punctuation, which means that you aren’t a good writer you claim to be.

Either reaction is bad. It’s obvious that if you want to avoid it, you have to invest time and efforts into high-quality proofreading and editing. However, what exactly does this mean? What do you have to do in order to make your writing really polished and feel proofread?

1. Use various services.
The first and the simplest thing to do is to proofread your writing using some online service (for example, Grammarly). Such services check your grammar and punctuation and some of them even give you some stylistic tips.

However, if you want to make the most out of it, don’t settle for one service only. Choose a couple of other ones too and run your writing through them to ensure that all the errors were spotted.

2. Avoid distraction.

Some additions to Andrew Leniart's keen observations:

Feel free to invent a new word if you feel that the existing one is boring.  For example, "automated" is a terribly clichéd (so 90s) word that really needs to be "-ized" to jazz it up and make it fit for modern day corporate buzz-word parlance.

Just like any other tools, they are automatized and so unable to spot all the mistakes.

Sometimes we are so focused on grammar checks that we forget that other things have to be checked too.

I invariably find spelling and grammar errors on websites offering proofreading and essay writing services, so please don't take offence.  We all make such mistakes, but in articles about proofreading and on websites offering proofreading services, the spelling and grammar should be faultless.
