No. The gesture will open the stock camera only.
Thanks for the info! I was about to go crazy looking for the feature.
Maybe I misread all of the buzz about the app. But, I swear they said the Droid Command Center displays notifications for text messages and phone calls.
"It starts with DROID Command Center, an exclusive homescreen widget for users to easily access notifications for text messages, missed calls, battery level and weather."
DROID ULTRA - DROID MAXX
Don't bother with Sync.me, imo, Ubersync worked well.
As far as I can tell if you look at the link I posted above there is nothing regarding texts or missed call notifications. Sorry
I never saw that page before. I just tested the widget by sending myself a text. I didn't see any way to access that notification from the widget. That's either a typo, wrong info, or perhaps it was functionality that we removed from the widget when the phone was released.
But - if you figure this out, reply and let us know; I'd love to see what I missed!
Droid Command Center and blue tooth incompatibility issue. Three trips to the car dealership and a second Droid Maxx--blue tooth issues were "fixed" by disabling the Droid Command Center widget. The Command Center kept turning blue tooth off in my car.
What is the best miracast adapter for the Maxx?
Is there a micro HDMI cable like was on Droid Bionic?
The ONLY external connection is a USB port. There is no HDMI.
Do you know why they stopped putting HDMI ports? Bionic has it, I don't know about RAZR.
My razr had one but I might have used it once, maybe. They expect everyone to be wi-fi at this point and it's a way to save money I'm sure.
There is also no SD-ext card. For $15 you can get a card reader (read wrote) that plugs into the USB port and access an SD-ext card.
I think they are reducing the number of case openings and making it more water-friendly.
We can all speculate for reasons. The old phones that had hdmi ports were TI OMAP phones; the new droids are snapdragons. Google now owns Motorola, and Google tends to be data driven. I suspect that they measured the number of people who cared about hdmi out and found that there just not enough people who care to make the device more popular and profitable to be worth the effort. Recently it seems that wireless technologies are winning out over wired, and that just makes more sense with mobile anyway.
That's my guess. The old Motorola was doing so poorly that they had to sell the company. I wouldn't expect the Google managers of the new Motorola to continue forward with any but the most successful parts of the Motorola legacy.
I have made some administrative changes that have blocked my ability to select "none" as a lockscreen option. I was playing around with setting up a hot spot and did something. Have undone all that and checked vpn for changes, but cannot find what I have done.
Would really just like to be able to select none or swipe screen as an unlock option again.
Don't want to factory reset if possible.
Oh...and it is my wife's Droid Maxx!
Chose the nuclear option and did a factory reset.
I think the culprit was foxfi. It appears that it had required a lockscreen and I must have fatfingered something. Be careful.
If you miss the HDMI (I never used it on my bionic or RAZR HD) Google chromecast is a nice alternative. We use it all the time! I know the picture quality isn't as good but it isn't bad either
how do I set up LED notifications
in droid bionic I can set screen on when charging or docking, so I can use it as my bedside night light.
Is there anyway to do in droid maxx ?
You can't. There are no LED notifications - just the active notifications that show in the center of the display.
You probably want daydream mode. Settings-Display, look for Daydream.
How can you make different photo files or albums in the gallery? Please help, I have looked everywhere for answers for this.
Try this one. A month ago my phone started calling me josh. Josh is not my name. How do I get it calling me the correct name again?
Your wife/girlfriend never borrows your phone do they?
Ha! No. No one touched my phone.
In the People app, at the top, what is the name of the "ME" contact? I think that's what's used for this.
I can not find a way to change it.
Good call. It does say josh. How do I change it?
Separate names with a comma.
