  5. A few days ago I got an email from my provider that my disksspace for my blog reached its limit. And when I asked him what caused this, he told me I have been posting full sized images, instead of resized ones. So, big lesson for me: "Start resizing before posting/blogging". On my laptop at home, and on my xp machine at work, this isnt a problem. But I am also a heavy "Wordpress for Android" user. So the question is, how do I resize an image to at least 50% of the original quality on my Android?
  6. groovyPost reader, Mike, asks: After I got my 1st smartphone, an htcWildfire S by T-mobile, last year Iwas, "Cleaning it up" a little andfollowed an article something likethis one that I just read, possibly toaccess a setting: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/howto/access-hidden-menu-android-phone/ and hid the shortcuts in my appsdrawer to a couple of apps likeStocks, Voice Recorder, etc. I can'tremember how/what I did. I'd like toreverse it. I can see those apps inLauncher Pro's app drawer, but not inHTC Sense's. They're not listed inthe Personalize>>Add app to Homeeither, but are inApplications>>Manage>>All. They're not disabled in SDK. Ichecked, and besides if they werethey'd be hidden in Launcher Pro also. I am fairly computer literate and thusmight, alternately have done somethingin SDK...although I was brand new tosmartphones, I remember being nervous,but understood enough to follow thearticle. I've spent a LOT of time trying tofind this, and just can't. I'd reallyappreciate any info/insight you mightoffer. Thanks, Mike

  10. I installed Advanced Task Killer on my Galaxy III phone. It DOES work and kills programs that are active and that I do not need immediately. Yet, two hours later, many of the programs have re-started and are once again draining the life out of my battery.I barely get one full day from a battery charge and the Advanced Task Killer app seems to work but only temporarily. Is there some way to permanently suspend the updating of apps until I need to open them? This would save me a lot of charging time. Either with this app or some other way?
  11. I use Office 2010 for making excellists I use for my work. Now I want to use those lists digital while im outdoors. Normally I print them out. But Ive got a Galaxy Tab and a iPad 1 from my boss to test stuff out. I loaded the checklist on both tablets, but the checkboxes ive put in the excel list dont show up anymore. Things ive tried:- Both tablets have VMWare installed. With this programm it's possible to use your desktop but on a tablet. With VMWare the checkboxes are visible and easy to use. But everytime you tick one, the 3g connection kicks in and I have to wait several seconds. So, it works, but not optimal. And there is no mouse so you have to do everything with gestures. Not very easy to do. On both tablets I have loaded the list in Polaris Office. Both times, no checkboxes. On my HTC One X, I loaded the list in Polaris, no checkboxes On both tablets and on my HTC One X I loaded the list in OfficeSuite Pro. No checkboxes. Anyone got any idea how to get checkboxes on a excel list to use on a tablet android or ios?
  12. I have an older LG Optimus V. Early on the Optimus V and Optimus S used different screens and took different drivers. I had CM7 IHO installed on my Optimus V, but now want to sell it. I’ve been running CM7 since Oct. 2011. I no longer have the original ROM backup and downloaded a stock LG Optimus V ROM from the Internet. I installed it after wiping everything and all went well until I rebooted the phone. It booted up just fine with the LG logo and then I hear the Virgin Mobile voice and then the vibration. However, my screen is black. I remember this happening very early on with some mods with the wrong screen drivers. Upon doing a lot more research, I discovered that LG saw fit to use the newer screen from the LG S(sprint) phone in all their builds, including the newew V phones. It appears that the ROM backup I got was from a newer Optimus V phone which uses the screen driver for the Optimus S phone and causes my screen to be black. I could easily fix this if I could get access to my phone and see what I am doing. By installing a new ROM, USB debugging is turned off by default. If I could get a method or commands to use in SDK ADB to enable USB debugging, I could get the phone to display on my computer via either Droid@Screen or Screencast and resolve my problem. But, they do not work if USB debugging is disabled. If there is a way or if there are commands to force Debugging on, I would really appreciate the help. There are many people out there with this same problem, however the people that say they have the answer.....DON’T. They all say to use one of the 2 programs I mentioned and then tell you to make sure debugging is turned on. What they seem to forget is that the screen is black and that is the problem in the first place and you can’t see to turn USB debugging on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You for any help you can provide.

  23. I have installed Dropbox on my Samsung Galaxy S. And I use it a lot to upload stuff to. But lately I find myself stuck, because I want a picture thats in my Dropbox, but I cant find it, because its automatic labeled to for example: "2-11-7-13-12-12-12". And I dont want to download them all, because I dont need them all, but also I have to download over 3g. And thats going to cause a lot of traffic I dont want.
