HTC Incredible :: Why Do Apps Need Access To Personal Contacts?

Jun 13, 2010

Other than just being spyware or something? Lately I've been afraid to download a lot of apps for these reasons. I can't figure out why a game for example would need access to my contacts list, or a launcher have to look at my call history.

General :: Access Guest WiFi Network Using Own Personal Smartphone

May 17, 2012

My company has a guest Wifi network and a regular employee wifi network that requires a password. I was wondering if I were to access the guest wifi network using my own personal smartphone, what kind of privacy would I have?

Are there any easy apps to encrypt myself while on it? I see SSH Tunnel and Connectbot, but I don't have a server.

Android : Access Web Information?

Dec 22, 2009

I'm attempting to create an app that will display usage information for customers of Roger's Wireless(Canada). I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on how to:

1) input Username and Password info directly a web textbox to sign the Customer in, from an EditText View.

2) grab usage information in the form of text or images to display to the user within the app.

Just a pointer in the right direction on what method(s) would do this for me.

Android :: Why Does Pandora Need To Access Contact Information?

Feb 18, 2010

Anyone have any ideas? I can't imagine Pandora needs to know my co-workers email addresses to determine what songs I like. If there isn't another logical explanation I have to assume they're collecting contact data.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Create A Personal Apps Folder On X10?

Oct 11, 2010

My wife convinced me to get an xperia X10 because she loves hers so much. My previous phone was a Palm Centroid and I needed a new phone because the power button was very difficult to activate. On my Sandro, I was able to create a personal apps folder of the apps I use the most. The Quick Start guide that came with my phone has two pages explaining basic functions. One box shows being able to Move/Delete Icons, but it only shows how to delete them. Use the long Touvh to move it to the trash can icon. But I don't want to delete them, I want to move or copy them to a personal apps folder.

Samsung Moment :: How Secure Are Market Apps With Personal Info On Phone

Nov 13, 2009

I have been wondering over the last few days since getting an Android phone and trying to configure it to make it at least as productive as my previous smartphone. How secure is the information in a world where we put a large amount of personal info behind google-id and password? This id and pwd is plugged into the phone for functionality. We browse the Android Market for necessary apps provided by complete strangers and click Install. We click OK when caution is raised, with unknowing consequences and taking complete responsibility for the installation. Am I justified in being paranoid with Android model of doing things?

Please read the thread "ActiveSync for Android, Moment?" to understand better why I raise this question.

Android :: Android - IPhone To Have Full Access Of Enterprise Information System

Aug 9, 2010

We continue to build our fairly small applications on Android, iPhone and other mobile operating systems. This is fine and fun in the beginning of a new era, but when mobile OS matures, gets to be the preferred device for business people in motion, they want something more.

One would guess they want the same access and capability to ERP, MRP, BI-solutions and other reporting systems in there phone, right here, right now. How would we as developers deliver these demands, in a secure yet useful way? Is there today support for this kind of applications given they are not today on the web?

I understand the fact most EIS-solutions are web based. Still they are behind company gates, heavily garded by Cheif Information Security Officer (CISO) and his/her staff. Thus they are not accessible through the open unsecure internet but insede companies intranet or internal network. To my knowledge, accessing an EIS using an adress like https://www.thecompany.com/eis-solution/ signing in with username/password isn't done today. In the old days, a VPN-solution was one way to access inside EIS-solutions, but will this be done using a mobile device as well?

Motorola Droid :: Good Program To Backup (apps, Files, Shortcuts, Bookmarks And Personal Settings)?

Nov 15, 2009

Is there a good program to backup your all your apps, files, shortcuts, bookmarks and personal settings. I know Astro has a "backup" function but I don't know what it actually backs up. I know you can back up your contacts Google.

I guess what I'm asking is if there's a way to "clone" your Droid, not just the SD card.

Android : Sync MobileMe Information (contacts, Calendar) With Google Apps?

Mar 24, 2010

Is there a way to sync my MobileMe information (contacts, calendar etc) with the Google Apps? I know it can be done as easy as exporting and importing but I am looking for a solution where I can always keep them in sync without doing anything. I used to have an iPhone and I still have a MacBook and so I've been using MobileMe to keep everything in sync. I am soon getting a Nexus One and I want to make sure my MacBook and N1 stay in sync as well. Any ideas?

Android :: Sync Information And Future Information

Jul 7, 2010

I am a Mac user (photographer/ videographer). I also rely heavily on my iPod Touch when mobile (i can often find a wifi signal when i am out and about). I use iCal on the Touch and iCal on my Mac as well as the address book on both everyday and as a Mobile Me user, my two devices sync so everything is mirrored and up to date. I also HATE AT&T for their terrible signal strength and coverage and have been a loyal Verizon customer for many years and this is why I don't have an iPhone. Okay, all that being said, is there an easy way to still use everything I love and rely on with my Mac (the calender and address book, mainly) and easily sync all of my existing information and future info to an Android based device? How easy is it to use an Android device with a Mac? I don't want to have to manually re-enter my entire address book into a new device.

I need to install Video Recorder and other good applications.

I tried to know what the shit cupcake is but flunked as its above of my understanding. However, i'll keep on trying to know how could i do for my G1.

But for instance, i need url of Market.

HTC EVO 4G :: Can Android Apps Share Access To Audio Output

Sep 28, 2010

Can android apps share access to the audio output? I sometimes use Maps Navigation, which will give audible turn by turn instructions. I plug the EVO to my car stero using a patch cord so that I hear the instructions over my radio.

However, if I'm using another application that outputs audio, like Pandora or the music player, they go silent as soon as Maps speaks an instruction.

What I would like is for the apps to be able to share the audio output with some kind of priority set, so that Pandora would pause momentarily while Maps spoke an instruction and then resume.

Is that possible?

Android :: Has Anyone Used Personal Assistant?

Nov 27, 2009

Has anybody used the program "Personal Assistant" by Pageonce for Android or any other phone? It seems like a useful little app, but I am hesitant to provide it with any of my account (especially bank account) information without first knowing if others have used the program and deemed it safe and secure. I haven't really been able to find any testimonials online save for a few forum responses that seem to be written by one of the program's creators, which obviously doesn't make me feel much better. If anybody has used it and can confirm that my information will be safe, please let me know.

Android :: Does This Personal Finance App Exist Yet?

Jun 11, 2010

Currently I use the desktop app quicken to track all my expenses. More and more I'm relying on my android phone to do my daily tasks. I have been searching and reading for weeks now trying to find an app that suits my needs and so far I haven't come up with what I need. Many come close but so far none can provide all three of my requirements. So, does any one of you l33t android users know of an app that can meet these three requirements?

(1) Must be stand alone - If it can sync with a desktop app like quicken for example, that's great but it shouldn't rely on that to function.

(2) Supports downloading bank data directly - My bank (USAA) supports just about every connection method. Every app I have tried for every phone that has this feature has been able to connect to USAA and retrieve my transactions without issue. Downloading to a file and importing manually is not an option.

(3) Must support recurring / scheduled transactions - I want to be able to plug in my monthly recurring bills and have some way of viewing my future balance as the bills hit. Quicken does this with a bar graph and a calender. Either one would work. The biggie (Mint.com) is great but doesn't support the third requirement even though hundreds of people have posted, asking for this feature (guess no one is listening or acting on it). Quicken doesn't have a mobile app. Splash money doesn't have an Android version. Ascendo Money doesn't have an android version. Seems like everything I have found is 2 out of 3.. I don't see how my list of 3 is asking that much?

Android :: How To Get Personal Data Storage App?

Jan 5, 2010

Does anyone have a bead on a well-performing, well-design app that I can store personal data/info with in a secure fashion? Specifically, I want to store information such as my kid's Kaiser ID numbers, doctor's names, etc... but it has to be secure. Poking around in the Market hasn't really turned up any great options for me so I thought I'd turn to the community for suggestions.

Android :: A Personal Question, Droidbots

Dec 30, 2009

I am constantly amazed at how many posts are made and how quickly they are responded to. So, a little personal question. . .

Who are you?

I assume that most of us here are adults who work a job that allows them to buy an expensive phone (or two or three) with expensive data plans, so are you all at work slacking off and following the threads?

I must admit I am guilty of that occasionally as I linger around here.
