Android :: Devices Sync Apps And Settings Between Each Other?

Aug 29, 2010

Android tablets seem pretty cool, but what about those who already have Android smartphones? Will they have to manage two separate devices if they get tablets as well? My question is this: Can android devices sync apps and settings between each other? Will a Google account transfer all apps on one device to another automatically?

General :: Nexus 7 / TPad / LG Connect - Sync Apps Across Multiple Devices

Aug 10, 2012

Any way to automatically sync Play Store applications across multiple devices. In other words, I have a Nexus 7, TPad, LG Connect (work phone) and then I also switch between a GNex and Rezound (personal phone).

Is there anyway that if I download an app from one device that the app will also automatically be pushed/downloaded on the other devices?

It is a real pain to have to remember to go to each other device and download the app, and even worse when I switch between handsets that may not have been used for several week.

General :: Limiting Google-based Sync To Settings And Data Not Apps

Aug 28, 2013

I have a few Android devices and I play around with them quite a bit - flashing ROMs, etc. - and there's one thing that tends to irk me: When setting up my Google account on the device, there's the following checkbox:

Bring apps, settings and other data that you previously backup up to your Google account

Is there any way to limit this to settings and other data? I've used a TON of Android apps, and there are many, free and paid, that I have no desire to use again. I know a more robust solution (Titanium Backup, etc.) is better, but I'm not always running with root and I'm not looking for extremely-fine-grain control. I simply want to skip installing apps I haven't used in months! I know I could simply uninstall the apps, but there are a ton. I'm willing to uncheck the box if I can get a clear understanding of what I'll be missing if I don't sync. I don't have much time to experiment with it at the moment. For example, I don't remember if known wi-fi networks are synced (compare to Windows 8, which does - if I remember correctly - along with tons of other data)

General :: App / Data Sync Between Two Devices?

Dec 28, 2013

I'm trying to find a one-way solution to sync 'app' & 'data' between 2 devices, and possibly make a full backup if ever needed.

I cannot get an idea of what each of the apps below do without downloading each one and making a mess. I was hoping some of you could shed some light. Considering these apps use a cloud service of sorts, I am assuming that old versions of files can be retrieved (from trash) by visiting the cloud service on a PC?

1. Titanium Backup Pro
2. DataSync
3. DropSync
4. FolderSync
5. Helium

Android :: 2.1 Devices Won't Sync With Exchange 2003 SP2

Aug 2, 2010

We have a client running Exchange 2003 SP2, and a few users would like to sync their Android phones - a Motorola Droid and an LG Ally, both running Android 2.1. Both phones give us the following error when configure a sync account:

This Exchange ActiveSync server requires security features your phone does not support.

I've made sure that Exchange ActiveSync is working, I've tried allowing unsupported devices in Exchange System Manager, adding the users to the device security exclusion list, but I'm not coming up with anything that will allow the Android devices to sync.

General :: How To Sync Music Between 2 Android Devices Without PC / Laptop

May 2, 2014

I own a Samsung Galaxy S4 and a Galaxy Tab 3. I want all of the music from my phone to automatically sync with my tablet. I download to my phone directly and don't want to transfer everything manually each time I download a new song.

I see that Google Music can do this but it's designed for music that is stored on a laptop/pc. I'd rather not do it this way if possible as the whole reason I bought the tablet was to avoid carrying the laptop around.

note that the music is stored on the SD Card and not the handset. Not sure it will make a big difference but I thought I would point it out.

Android :: Purchased Apps On Multiple Devices?

Mar 20, 2010

I have a question about the way the Android market handles purchased apps.I've seen in other posts where if you upgrade to a new phone, your purchased apps will follow you.But how about if you use more than one Android device? For instance, later this year I may get an Android tablet. Presumably the apps I purchased on my Droid will downloadable on the tablet. But will they remain downloadable on my Droid? And if I purchase an app on the tablet, will it also be downloadable on my Droid?It seems to me that if the apps are associated with your account, then you should be able to download them on multiple devices.I was just wondering if anyone has actually tried and confirmed this.

HTC Droid Eris : Unable To Get Exchange Sync Settings

Ever since 2.1 OTA I can't get my sync settings to stick.I want it to push items as they arrive. I check that box, but when I exit out, it goes back to manual. I've tried changing this in the email settings and in the main sync settings.This is driving me crazy- I keep missing my work emails!Also- I have never figured out how to get my vibrating notifications back after the OTA. If my ringer is on vibrate, the only notification I have that an item arrived is my LED.Finally- has anyone found the fix to the multiple notification email bug? I still get 3-4 notifications for one email when my ringer is on ring.

General :: Play Website Does Not Show Apps On Multiple Devices Anymore

Aug 9, 2013

I just have purchased a Nexus 7. I went to the google play website and I used to be able to see all my devices individually and see what apps were installed on each device and all the apps in my library. It made it easy to add apps to a new device. Now I just see all the apps installed but not broken down by device, so I have to click on each individual app to see on which device they are installed. It is a more convoluted process, and I would like to see on the website at a glance which apps are installed on each device I own. Did something change or something I am missing? I also can't log in do the device manager with Chrome but I can with Safari. Mac OS X10.8, Android 4.1

HTC Hero :: Not Getting Past First Settings - No Apps?

Jan 9, 2010

I just got a new, unbranded, unlocked Hero (my first, so I have no idea how things are supposed to work), and can't seem to get anywhere:After start I get language settings, then select "next", then a request for a SIM card. I don't have that card yet, but I can't skip this window. According to HTC-support, a SIMcard is not necessary for setting up the phone, using many of the functions, and using WiFi. But they didn't tell me how to solve the problem.After a lot of fiddling around, I managed to find the WiFi settings and got connected there. But there simply is no Home Page (or whatever its called, the main page that you see in all the adverts), I can't get to settings, there are no applications.I did a hard/factory restart, but no joy - the problem stays the same.
