    The stock email client on the S5 refuses to delete emails and always pulls them back down again. Is there a decent alternative that has minimal permissions? I don't need it importing information from my phone contacts, I'll deal with contacts. I just want it to sync, and if I delete emails...

    Help adding a folder on SD card to auto backup on dropbox?

    On my S5 I have dropbox, and it nicely auto uploads any images taken with the camera to dropbox, so when I power up the PC, they are pulled down to PC.

    I noticed that I now have duplicate folders in my gallery now, that have both duplicate and unique images. I think I made them by using media player to upload said folders. If I save an image on my phone, the folder browser only sees one. I also noticed when I deleted an image from one...

    When you start dolphin you get the opening page of some shortcut buttons. I have added to this before, or maybe edited them, but I can't seem to add one now. It's got 10 now, that's not max is it? I have room for more. Add to home page doesn't seem to be it.
