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.

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?

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.

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.

HTC Incredible :: Way To Transfer Over Existing Apps / Contacts To New Rom?

Aug 3, 2010

I'm getting tired of waiting for the OTA froyo update when I can just root and use a leaked version. I was wondering what my best bet would be. I figure I will root with the unrevoked method since it seems straight forward. What should I use for changing roms, though? Clockworkmod looked good because the paid version allowed for updating to newer roms right off app without having to look for them... but from what I understand Titanium is the only way to transfer over your existing apps/contacts/etc to a new rom. I'm not too keen on having to reinstall ALL my apps and data... what does everyone here suggest?

General :: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - How To Access Gmail Contacts From Android

Aug 27, 2013

This will allow you to access your Gmail contacts from a tablet just like you're use to on your PC.

Login to your gmail account using your tablet's browser. Open up a new tab and type in the [URL] ....

I have no idea why this is not integrated into Android's version of Gmail or why it is not a selectable option like Calendar, or why there isn't support on this when you do a search, so that's why I'm posting this.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and I've done this on the Ipad as well.
