Non-game Android Apps Recommendations Catch-All

Cloudmagic is the way to go. I love the integration with Evernote, Asana, and Todoist.

BUT HOW DID I KNOW WHAT YOU REALLY WANT YOU COY PRICK? Maybe you didn't WANT a new app and just wanted to bitch about Outlook? Huh? What about that?

Then I probably would've waded into the PS4 thread!

Btw, I'm digging CloudMagic.

I BET YOU ARE YOU SON OF A BITCH.

So, does anyone know how I could keep my music app from starting playback when I plug in headphones while the music app is 'closed' while I have the podcast app open? What usually happens is I'll be listening to a podcast, unplug from the headphone jack and the podcast will auto-pause. When I plug back in, it resumes for 1 second and then the music will come from out of nowhere and start back up. It always picks up the music where it left off, even when I close it. I would like to keep the auto-resume from the music software enabled, but only resume if the app is 'open'.

My default apps are:
Music: Poweramp
Podcast: Player FM

There's usually an option, sometimes buried in the various options menus, of the particular app that lets you turn that off, but I'm not familiar with your apps so I can't get more specific. I'd recommend digging around for that option, if it's hopefully available.

Bitching about Microsoft is a pretty common thing among all PC users.

But we want to play games so we keep using Windows.

I thought he was talking about the Outlook android app?

Yes, there is an option to turn on/off resuming playback when headphone is plugged in, but I want that to remain. I just don't want the music app to start out of nowhere every time I plug in my headphones when i have another app paused from unplugging my headphones. Basically I want the phone to recognize that whatever audio app I have running is the priority and to resume that only that one.

It's a known issue here.

Veloxi, dude, I think you and I would get along if we met IRL.

MAYBE WE WOULD.

This isn't really an app recommendation but a question about S Health vs Google Fit.

I have been using S Health for several months. I figured I'd try Google Fit. I've had Fit for two days now and it's numbers are significantly lower than S Health for steps and for biking (haven't use it for running ,yet). I like that G Fit seems to know when I'm biking or running and I don't have to tell it to track. I like some of the other things in it as well. Anyway, I think S Health is fairly accurate (if not a little low - sometimes it simply doesn't register steps and my iphone comes up with even more steps). G Fit is about 2/5th lower than S Health (about 8000 steps vs 4800).

Anyone use Google Fit? Are you happy with it? Have you found it to be accurate?

So far, today both Google Fit and S Health have been pretty close in steps. They are at 1109 (SH) and 1075 (GF). Not sure what's changed since yesterday, though.

I got a Fitbit.

Does CloudMagic work with the 2 ways security feature for hotmail ?

I have been using the Outlook.com app, which, after a while, I need to forced close to use it again, or the Outlook app from Microsoft, which delete all my emails' account from its app after 20 days.. :S

I spoke too soon. Everything was pretty close until I left work. Then I went to the grocery store and went for a walk with my wife. GF didn't track any of that. Ended up with 13k steps in S Heath and 6k in G fit. I don't mind a little difference between the two but missing half the day is kind of a big thing.

I've been thinking about a Moto 360 but haven't worn a watch in a decade.

I don't use that so i don't know.

Hopefully some other luddite knows.

It's asking me for my 2way code. Just hope it doesn't reset itself like the outlook app from Microsoft. It's confusing, there is 2 outlook apps.

Fear not! One Outlook app will be dead soon!

MS uses two things. Two factor authentication via something like Google Authenticator codes, and the MS account app, that's a bit more automated. I like the later after using both.

CloudMagic is nice so far. I'll need some time to adjust.

I did notice it doesn't get emails automatically on LTE. Or might be because I just started using it, I had to fetch them manually.

Do you mean 2-factor authentication? I use that on all my gmail accounts and it works fine.

Me neither, I'm still getting used to it.

You shouldnt have to do it manually. Check your settings. I use cloudMagic religiously since it came out. I have my corporate account (MS Exchange), my hotmail account, and my gmail account through CloudMagic and it pulls just fine through my LTE connection.

If you haven't used Firefox for Android in a while, I would recommend checking it out.

To me, FF on Android is a killer app. The only mobile browser where I can get the extensions I don't want to live without (LastPass and uBlock most of all). FF on Android has had extension support for a while, but basically none of the existing extensions actually worked. That has finally changed.

Being able to have an actual full-blown browser is really nice.

thanks for the heads up.
having LastPass supported is a big plus for me.

Last time I tried Firefox (2 phones ago) it was slow and awful. And Chrome wasn't quite up to snuff at that time. But it's gotten much better and I haven't been curious about other browsers in a while.

Good man! MannishBoy has the right of it.

Hermes is a little buggy but it's a good looking IRC client in active development.
