    Groove IP + which phone?

    Looking for "best" older android phone that Groove IP works "flawlessly" on (or at least good voice quality with few problems). I use it on my Nexus 7 and have no phone. I use T-mobile Wifi Hotspot for 4G. Just want a phone to leave in my car (or pocket), just for wifi calling (when I don't...

    Nexus 7 on 4G

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but thought I'd pass this on (sorry if this has been discussed). I bought a T-Mobile 4G Hotspot device at Walmart ($84). Got it set up, and Nexus 7 connects with no problem. Download speed 7144, upload 1716. What's amazing is my phone is on...

    Amazon cloud player

    I just got notified that every song I've purchased at Amazon is now available for download. I guess its always been, but I decided to install their cloud player and was happy to see every CD I've bought as a gift is there. It's nice to have ability to download (like Play). Player seems to work...

    Root Best ROM?

    OK, rooted my OV about a year ago. Since I bought a Nexus 7 haven't used it much. Decided it was time to try flashing a ROM or "something" (never done that). My OV has been getting laggy, and only shows 50mb internal memory, after uninstalling 75% of my apps. I wiped D cache and relinked...

    Help "Trusty" old OV

    Lots of odd things started happening today, 1st problems in more than a year (and I seldom use it). Keyboard entries (Swype or Android) don't register in fields. Scrolling wallpaper stopped scrolling. Amazon App store real slow if not dead. Browser works (if you don't have to enter anything...

    Free Music

    I typically don't like 90% of the free stuff at the Play store, but I actually downloaded 6 of the 10 free songs today, under "Free Music New Indie, Hip-Hop, Electronic and More". Just thought I'd mention this if you're like me and don't check it that too often.

    Gmail through browser

    I've been using gmail thru my browser lately (xscope), and liking it better than k9. I've used k9 for more than a year, but it has never really treated deleted emails correctly. Using the browser, it mirrors my PC use. Is there an app that gives gmail notifications if browser is off? I get them...

    SMS forwarding

    Is there a way (app) that will forward an SMS from a phone (Optimus-V) to a wifi tablet (Galaxy Player)? Now that I have a 5" screen, I seldom use my phone, but once a month I get a text from VM. I would like to get that text in Google Voice (or some other SMS app) on my Player.

    Power Amp

    On sale right now. With all the hype I finally bought it (my 2nd app purchase, 1st being GrooveIP). I wouldn't pay $5 but at $2 I figure it's worth a try. Sound is great. I don't really like the UI (compared to what I am use to with Cubed)... but sound is what matters. Widgets are terrible...

    Cubed Player

    I love this app because it has (had) nice widgets. The latest update killed the widgets... somehow the title is getting overlayed on the art. Uninstalling and going back to a backed up version. Before: After:

    Google Voice Update

    I am able to make wifi calls with Google Voice now (no other app required). It does force close on my Galaxy Player once I hang up, but call went through Google Chat, just like on a PC. I was/am using Groove IP for this, and also noticed GrooveIP also force closes on hang up. Anyone else have...

    Another Bowser Thread...

    I keep bouncing between browsers, thought Boat Mini was my fav, now Dolphin HD... So I thought I'd do an interesting test on the 3 browsers I have on my Galaxy Player 5.0. I turned on Power Tudor to test average power consumed in an application. Then opened 4 browser URL's (Facebook, Google...

    K9 .zip files

    Is there away that you can unzip and open files within a zip, directly from a zip attachment in K9 mail? I can download it to SD, then open my file explorer and unzip, but it would be nice to unzip like on a PC, just click and view the file you want directly.

    Galaxy Player 4.0 & 5.0 Forum

    Maybe a new section for these players? Something like these: Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0, 5.0 - xda-developers I prefer this site to many of the others! :)

    Wireless Access Point

    I want to set up a WAP at my office. It's a wired DHCP ethernetwork, off a DSL modem (Netopia 3000). What's the cheapest/easiest way to add an access point for a cell phone or tablet? I'm looking at TP-Link WAP's at Amazon for about $40.00. Can I just plug one of those into a free ethernet...

    Playing Amazon Song previews

    When I hit the play button on a song sample (Amazon), it downloads the sample rather than plays it. Is there a way to have it play? The downloaded file (.m3u) doesn't play either. I'm using Boat Browser, maybe another browser will work?

    Galaxy 5.0

    Curious why the Galaxy Wifi 5.0 device isn't listed anywhere here. It's "called" an MP3 player, but sure looks like a good small "tablet": Samsung Galaxy 5.0 Android MP3 Player: MP3 Players & Accessories Has Android 2.3.5, Wifi, Front and rear camera, GPS, market, good screen...

    Swype "Enter" key

    I can't figure out how to "enter" an item and have it go to the next item. example: entering an ID then a password. When I enter the ID, the keyboard covers up the PW blank, so I have to back out and then click the PW space. If I hit the lower right "return" key, it acts like you have...

    Data Plans

    OK, I'm thinking of buying a Galaxy Tab 7 Plus, or Mediapad (Springboard), and wondered what the lowest cost data plan is out there? Can data plans be bought by any provider and used on any tablet? I don't care about cell coverage, just 3G or 4G data on the tablet while away from wifi. I'm...

    K9 observation

    I was playing with my Gmail page on my PC, decided to change one of my folders from "Work" to "WORK". I don't check mail on my phone too often, but a day later I couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting mail on my phone. I kept hitting "refresh", it kept polling and delivering nothing. I have...

    Photo Edit PNG's

    Is there an app that will take a png file (or .gif) with a transparent background, let you edit it and preserve the transparent background? I use PSE on my PC, not a big problem with dropbox, but it would be nice if an app would do it.

    Root Android log files

    Maps Update

    I use Appbrain for updating apps. Maps updated yesterday (to 5.11), but I still show "Maps" on top saying it needs an update, and also shows in the apps list as "Maps Update 5.11". I hit the update again, and seems to reinstall, but still remains on the top ready to update list (after...
