  • any android users?

    My Windows phone finally became more trouble than it was worth, especially since I have no need for excel with my current job. I now have a Samsung Android-based phone. Sooooo much more usable than what I had--checking stuff on the net is now possible without waiting forever.

    Do I need an anti-virus type program on this phone? It seems logical that if I'm on the web very much, or opening emails, an AV program would be a good idea. Anybody have any suggestions on a good one?

    Any other suggestions for utilities that I should look into?

    Thanks!

    I just went from an iPhone to the Samsung Galaxy SII- I'm using the Antivirus app on it. It scans everything I download, and has a few other very cool functions.

      Right now? You probably dont. could it help you somewhere down the line? For sure.

      With android phones outselling the iphone, the openness of android and the relative ease of getting an app published, there could be some serious security threats (already have been).

      I havent bothered with one yet.

        I was an Android user for about two years (original Droid then Droid X). Recently replaced with an iPhone and I'm never going back. So much better for work, organizing things, etc because of how effortlessly it syncs with my computer. The Androids were supposed to sync but rarely did. I have heard they work better with PC's than Macs, but all I've ever owned have been Macs so I can't say for sure.

        I used my Androids A LOT and never had any issue with viruses.

            I have an Android (droid x, then x2), and I love mine!!! I use a mac and the only thing it doesn't synch well with is my ical, but I'm sure I'm doing something wrong there tho... since I cant get my ical to synch with anything really...

            I have major issues with my phone #, my line has some kind of virus associated with it that it's had since I signed up years ago, just hadn't noticed it till after I got rid of my bb. But other than the line glitches, it's a great phone. Convinced Mr Ang to get one as well and he looooooves his (he has a thuinderbolt). I've considered going to an iphone, but I use google email, and really like how it synchs, as well as my calendar function. I'm sure that an iphone would work just as well, just haven't found an iphone user that uses gmail.

              Slab Serifs can work for this but watch when you run the serifs together and the shapes they create. The negative space of these kinds of heavy fonts play a big part in the overall look. I would get away...

              The FTP log in will be different than the Wordpress log in and usually will require a host name, user name, and password. If you don't have that information then you're out of luck because you cannot...

              I have the username and password for logging into Wordpress, but it shows another error message.

              The FTP is the back end of the website and you can still access it even if you can't access the site via wordpress. If you know your FTP log in information you can use a program like Filezilla to log...

              I actually just upgraded to windows 10 a few minutes ago. Will it give me any problems?
