If anyone knows the answer to the following questions can you please respond?
1) Where are all the widgets and apps? In Android 2.* I could create shortcuts to everything (e.g. Airplane mode, GPS). Now there are just very specific widgets available (e.g. Friend Stream, Google Playbook, etc.)
2) Where are my downloads? I have ES File Explorer and some of my downloads end up in the Download folder.
3) Why does Google Chrome for Android not have a Downloads folder/page? I have to open Internet and look there for Downloads brought down by Chrome.
4) ES File Explorer says it is creating shortcuts to folders when I long-press them but where are they? They aren't on my desktop.
5) Google Chrome for Android and Internet can't seem to play Flash videos on websites like Coursera.org, download MP4 files.
Welcome to Team #EVO4GLTE!
Not to be rude, but is this disappointment or you don't know what you're doing? Those are two different things.
- When you long press anywhere on the screen that will bring up the widgets and short cuts menu. You can also log into the HTC Hub to download more apps (like the flashlight) that were standard on the previous Sense UI's
- All downloads go to the download. Pictures will go into a "dowloads" folder inside the picture gallery
- I do not understand what you're asking. When
- I do not use ES File Explorer so I cannot answer
- You are aware flash is no long support? However, if you search this very forum you'll see discussion which may help you.
Check your users manual for more in-depth explanations and of course browse this forum. I'm sure you'll find the answers to all your questions.
It took me a week or two to get out of the GB ways of doing things to now do it in ICS.
Read the manual, read this forum, play around with your device, and ask questions. I'm positive in a week or two you'll be fine.
