    Problems with KitKat update

    I'm experiencing a problem with the dialer app since the Kit Kat update. When I first open the app and touch the number pad icon (center button at bottom of the app) I get a blank white space. Only on a second attempt does it work properly. The issue is repeatable - if I go to recent apps and...

    Help Question about volume settings on MotoX

For example, there doesn't appear to be a way to set a different volume level for notifications vs ring tones on this device (as I could on my previous phone). Does anyone know how to do this? Second, has anyone...

    Open PDF in Adobe app?

    I would like to know how to get PDF files to open in the Adobe app instead of automatically trying to open them in Google Docs. It's annoying that my browser (Dolphin) automatically goes to Google Docs instead of just opening the file in the proper app.

    Flashed GV 2.1 straight from GV 1.6. Now I'm having a strange problem. In some apps, when I am moving forward (i.e., not moving backward - hitting a submit button or a link) I'll end up with a black screen. The app isn't frozen, because the back button will get me back and then it usually...
