Smartphones

A smartphone or smart phone is a mobile phone with an advanced mobile operating system that combines features of a personal computer operating system with other features useful for mobile or handheld use. They typically combine the features of a cell phone with those of other popular mobile devices, such as personal digital assistant (PDA), media player and GPS navigation unit. Most smartphones can access the Internet, have a touchscreen user interface, can run third-party apps, music players and are camera phones. Most Smartphones produced from 2012 onwards also have high-speed mobile broadband 4G LTE internet, motion sensors, and mobile payment mechanisms.

My iPhone Xs is running iOS 12.1.

How do I remove email addresses that pop up when I am typing in the first few characters of an email address within the To: or BCC: field within an email on my iPhone?

There are certain email addresses that always appear within the email address auto suggestion field that I no longer use that I need to make sure are removed.

What is the easiest way of doing this?

Hi Experts

Could you point a way to automatically transfer a telephone contact list from a smartphone to another ?

The last time I shop a new smartphone someone transfered it by via bluetooth, I guess.

The new smartphone is using Android 8.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Android Experts,

I'm after an app/program that will allow me to organize all the icons on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX phone using my computer.

I recall being able to do this with my iPhones because iTunes displayed the phone configuration on screen and I could drag and drop apps and icons around on my computer screen while my phone was connected, and then the iPhone would update itself with the changes I'd made. I found this highly helpful and an easy way to organize my icons.

I have a LOT of icons and apps installed on my Android phone and organizing them the way I like in a native way on the phone I find to be a pain, so I'd like something that will allow me to do it the way iTunes let me do it with my iPhones.

Ie: Display my Phone screen configuration on my Windows 10 computer screen and allow me to organize my icons using my computer and then have my Android Phone update itself to the configurations that I'd selected on my computer screen. I'm happy to pay for a program to allow me to do this, so it doesn't have to be free.

I've looked through Google Play Store and see a lot of App Organizers, but they all seem to be just apps that are only installed on the Android phone, rather than allow me to connect the phone to the computer and do my organizing there.

Ie: Connect my phone to the computer so I can use my computer to update the icon positions on my phone instead.

Either this isn't available, or perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms on …

I have a UIPageViewController which I am using for onboarding/walthrough screens but at the moment they only work with swipes. I added a button but I can't actually connect it and create an IBAction. I was able to programatically create a button that could print to console but I don't know how to get it to move the screens like swiping does.

class PageViewController: UIPageViewController, UIPageViewControllerDelegate, UIPageViewControllerDataSource {
    
    
    
    var pageControl = UIPageControl()
    
    // MARK: UIPageViewControllerDataSource
    
    
    
    lazy var orderedViewControllers: [UIViewController] = {
        return [self.newVc(viewController: "sbBlue"),
                self.newVc(viewController: "sbRed")]
    }()
    
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        self.dataSource = self
        self.delegate = self
        
        
        
        // This sets up the first view that will show up on our page control
        if let firstViewController = orderedViewControllers.first {
            setViewControllers([firstViewController],
                               direction: .forward,
                               animated: true,
                               completion: nil)
        }
        
        configurePageControl()
        
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view.
    }
    
    func configurePageControl() {
        // The total number of pages that are available is based on how many

Hi,

I am working on an iOS application (in nativescript) that needs to get and post some data to an API in the background each 5 minutes. Now it seems that iOS is closing my application so I took a look at the long running tasks section of https://docs.nativescript.org/core-concepts/ios-runtime/how-to/BackgroundExecution but I fail to see how I should configure an interval now.

Also while it works correctly on the simulator (not thinking about the interval) with the debug fetch command, I can't get it to work correctly on a real device.

On some Android Devices when a subscriber receives an SMS message parts of the plain text message get hyperlinked to other apps such as the dialer and Google Maps on other devices the same message does not get linked.  

I understand that different manufactures and even different models from the same manufacturer may include different versions of apps or even different apps for the same task.  What I can't find any where is how to control (if one can) this linking activity so that a numeric such "18-1234567" is not mapped to the dialer and the text "Loc: 123 smith St, Somewhere NY 100012" is mapped to the Google App Map or Waze.  

TIA for any insight you all might have..

We currently have 200 android tablet devices in a CLOUD only environment, no on prem.

What i would like to do is for the tablets to have restricted internet access, what is the best way to do this? Do not want any app installation or the use of a subscription such as openDNS where there is a cost associated to it. Cant use free as there are restriction on additional entries (may be wrong)

Anyway, would love help with this and what I can do to achieve this, as I said we are cloud based and using MerakiSM MDM to manage these. Step by Step would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi all
We have a number of Android tablets, some of which are misbehaving. I need to be able to save (or send) the system logs (and maybe dmesg as well, if poss) continuously to the removeable SD card, or alternately, to send the logs out to an FTP server. Can someone help me do this please? I will not be able to "root" the devices.
Thanks in advance

I have an application called Clipper installed  on my LG Smartphone. It syncs with my Samsung  tablet. It stores all clippings loosely and securely stores my hundreds of usernames  and passwords.

My crappy Smartphone is having serious problems,  so I am entertaining the thought of wiping it and Reset to Factory Settings.
Will the synced copy of Clipper on my tablet survive if I wipe the phone?

I looking for suggestions for our on-call after hours clinicians.

We currently have a business need where a rotation of 10 users needs to be contacted on a rotating but changing schedule. We need to be able to route call the users personal, business and home phones. Additionally, we'd like to be able to text or message users if necessary.

What program or application are you guys using for on-call or after hours support?

Support the build.gradle configured with compileSdkVersion 25. Should the dependencies be run in same version, ie 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.4.0'  ?


In resource\XML, there is 28 - 25 to choose from. Does it mean the android apps will be test to run under api 25 - 28 ?

Can I say my Android app will be compiled in v25 and will be tested in platform 25 - 28 ?

Thx

Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

I am new to Samsung phones. I have a new S8 (running Android Oreo) and I want to be sure my notes can be restored if needed.

When I go to Setting > Cloud and Accounts > Samsung Cloud it shows Samsung Notes have synced but if I go to Notes > Settings > Import Data > (and select from google drive or Samsung account) I get the message: "No Memo data in Samsung account"

I don't have many notes yet so I can delete them and restore them to test it but how do I access the data to restore it? When I go to import data why does it say No Memo data?

Thanks,

I need an Android App that will suppress any ringing on my phone, allow the playing of a Voice message advising the caller to unblock their number (Ie: Enable Caller ID) and call again.

Ideally, there would be no ring on my phone by calls without caller ID enabled and they would automatically get rejected and given the opportunity to leave a voice mail with a return number.

This would take care of 95% of the spam/scam calls & SMS's that I receive.

I do engage in the occasional scam baiting, so I'd like to have the option of letting those calls through occasionally when I'm in the mood, but for the most part, I want all private numbers blocked.

Anyone know of such an App?

Hi everyone. I have an Android 7 device. It's not rooted. I need a file manager/utility that allows me to view the files & folders of the root directory; specifically the System and Data partitions. I don't need 'Write' permissions, just Read-Only. I want to copy some files. In other words, I don't want to root the device. I just need read-only access. I would prefer a file manager type app but I'm open to other methods.

I have tried Solid Explorer. It shows the System Partition but not the Data partition. Thanks.

Hi,

We have an Amazon Fire 7 tablet.

The plan is to use the Fire 7 tablet as a device to display information.

The problem is that when the tablet goes to sleep or runs out of power, the next time the tablet is turned on or woken up, the lock screen appears.

I would like to configure, with the use of an automation app, a function that will activate when the Fire 7 tablet displays its lock screen and automatically unlock by way of a swipe up action on the screen.

Is there an automation app that can do this, mainly a free app.

Thanks,
Robbie
