airbnb app for android 7 is not showing notifications.
Previously I got notifications on top of phone screen when I got an incoming chat message.
Now I have to click on app every few hours to see if a new message arrived.
There are many places in android that it could have been disabled.

settings->apps->airbnb->Notifications-> set as priority.
settings->apps->airbnb->apps that can appear on top->allow permission

Looking for a better security solution for home directory listing buzz in.  
Due to the increase mail package thefts, HOA proposed to completely remove remote buzz in option.  Currently visitors dialing the code downstairs, call comes to resident's cell phone,  and by pushing '9' the door unlocks;  If we remove that option the resident has to go downstairs to open the door to the visitor. Definitely inconvenient option.  But could be safe. Recently we even noticed the food delivery guys stealing packages on the way out.

My idea to improve it is to add a small cam downstairs.  When someone dialing in the call comes to resident's smartphone.  Resident immediately see shows coming in and make a decision to buzz person in or not.   Can this be implemented for a building of 50 units?  

Any ideas appreciated.   Thanks!!

I had this question after viewing Using AT commands with C.

I'm doing a project and want to connect my gsm "click" to my phone USING C PROGRAMMING, have it wired up ok just the program is letting me down..... [ I want the gsm to send a message to my phone ]
The GSM is connected to the UART serial port of my 8051f020 microcontroller, any help much appreciated my program is as follows:


      
 void send_it (void) interrupt 4 using 1   // This is the ISR 
	
	{  
		
		TI0 = 1; // TI must be cleared by software when writing directly  
	                       // to SBuf  as shown in the previous program – However,   
                   // the  Printf function requires TI to equal “1” on entering
		          // the function.
		printf ("Hello \n\n");  
   		printf ("This text was sent to the Uart using Printf \n\n"); 
		
    printf("AT+CMGF=1<CR>%c\n\n"); // configured the GSM module to SMS mode                                     
    printf("AT+CMGR=3<CR>\n\n");       

    ("AT+CMGS=\"08******\"HELLO"); // send mobile number to the GSM

i use aws-sdk for javascript to give user choice to enable/disable 2 factor auth for login. i have 2 issues: UI is capturing user phone and updates cognito phone_number attribute. (updateUserAttributes) First issue is with this stage, it updates the number but returns empty object instead of

{
    "CodeDeliveryDetailsList": [ 
    { 
        "AttributeName": "string",
        "DeliveryMedium": "string",
        "Destination": "string"
    }
    ]
}

Open in new window

Second, i am trying to send user a verification code with getAttributeVerificationCode with the following payload:

const params = { 
  AccessToken: auth.accessToken,    
  AttributeName: 'phone_number'
}

Open in new window

and i am getting "CustomMessage failed with error Cannot read property identity of undefined" error. Any ideas?

Thanks

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29108461/Peel-Smart-Remote-app-kept-self-reinstall-back.html

Refer to above EE post which is not resolved.

I bought a used Note4 & since receiving it, there's this "Smart Peel remote"
app in it which I've uninstalled it (via PlayStore) : however, the next day,
this app will pop up & when I go to PlayStore, could see that it's installed.

Each time after clicking "Uninstall" for this app in PlayStore, the "Uninstall"
button will turn to "Update" button.

What must I do so that this app doesn't come back (disruptive pop-ups)
again?  

The earlier expert suggest disabling it but how is this done?

Is there any way of bringing up or displaying the iPhone notifications screen (that appears on your iPhone with all of your latest email notifications, Experts Exchange alerts, texts, and other alerts) when you haven't used your iPhone for a while?

For example, I always use my iPhone alarm to wake me up in the morning.

When the alarm goes off I will unlock my iPhone and then turn off all of the iPhone alarms.

Then I will want to go back and view the main notifications screen that contains all of the alerts I have described above (instead of having to go to all of my different email accounts, Experts Exchange app, texts, etc.)

How can I go back to this main notification screen?

I have an activity where the user can update some data related to his profile (for example, his name) and he can also upload a new profile image.

After the update operation, the user is redirected to a new activity. The problem is that when the user comes back to his profile activity, the showed image is still the old one and not the new one while the name updated correctly.

In order to see the new profile image, the user needs to close the app and open is again.

How can I solve this problem? I use a function updateInfo(), but it seems to not work as I would like.

Can you help me, please?

public class ProfileActivity extends BaseActivity implements ProfileView {

    @BindView(R.id.avatar)
    ImageView p_avatar;
    @BindView(R.id.ib_back)
    ImageButton ibBack;
    @BindView(R.id.txt_title)
    TextView txtTitle;
    @BindView(R.id.ib_right)

    @BindView(R.id.txt_logout)
    TextView txtLogout;

I'm using Android Studio and I would like to be able to pickup am image from the gallery, resize it and make it fit inside a rounded square (of about 300x300px) by maintening the correct aspect ratio. At the moment, I'm able to resize it and display it as a circle with this code:

FixBitmap = MediaStore.Images.Media.getBitmap(getContentResolver(), uri);
                bitmap_to_save = scaleBitmapAndKeepRation(FixBitmap, 320, 320);

                RoundedBitmapDrawable roundDrawable = RoundedBitmapDrawableFactory.create(getResources(), bitmap_to_save);
                roundDrawable.setCircular(true);
                p_avatar.setImageDrawable(roundDrawable);

Open in new window


However, I would like to know if it is possible to make the bitmap look like my attached image. Moreover, it would be important for me to resize the image without losing the original aspect ratio.

avatar-circle.png
It is not exactly a well square rounded figure, so I'm not sure that it is possible to do it in Android.

I hope you can help me, thanks!

EDIT: I'm using Picasso library for the moment, and it seems to work. Anyway, I would like to keep always the same picture size (300x300 px) and the aspect ratio. How can I do it?

I currently upload finish line pictures from races I time to Google + and share the gallery with race finishers so they can find their picture.  I would like to take that a step further and share each finishers individual picture with them.  I believe Google Vision has the technology to do that...albeit for a cost...by pairing participant bib number with bib in the image.  Is anyone familiar enough with this api to give me some direction as to how to do this?  Also, any idea how this product is priced?

I would like the best way to text from a desktop or laptop PC without knowing the carrier?
There are a few ways to send a text message from any PC but you have to know the person's smartphone carrier.
Then you create an email to the person's cell phone number followed by "@" and the carrier's domain.
But unlike a cell phone, there is no need to lookup the carrier.
I have about 180 physicians with their independently owned smartphones, and I would like to send a text to all of them or a small fraction of them.   I would like to do this from Windows 7, or 8 or 10.
Thank you.
