I didn't pay anything for it. It said something about losing some functionality after 2 weeks when I installed and ran it. No idea what functionality that is.
Is it secure to pay through the phone? Don't laugh, you know I'm paranoid about these things, and Android isn't exactly Fort Knox. I've avoided paid apps that I wanted and would gladly pay solely for this reason. Couldn't figure out if there is a way to pay through my desktop on the play store. This was a few years ago.
Whenever Chrome is used on my phone, unlike other apps, including Maps, it never exits but keep running and I have to manually kill it. Mine is a Samsung running 4.4.2. Previous Samsung did it too. Is it just me?
ES File Explorer went stupid a while ago. It has a bunch of bloat in it now, most egregiously an "App Analyzer" that likes to push out extra notifications that it's doing (useless) things. The fix is Solid Explorer, which has a more or less identical feature set, including the robust file viewers and LAN and Cloud service connectivity, but without all the crap and stupid.
Why does no one use Hangouts? It's on every Android phone and a client exists for everything. Why do I need kik, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Facebook Messenger, Skype, an SMS client, or - god forbid - Facetime?
I won't accept SMS messages. They're limited to a single device and can be wonky about delivery, especially between cell providers. Certain whitelisted senders can send them to me but I see and reply to them as email.
Actually, he just needs to port over to Google Voice and use Hangouts for everything.Why not integrate SMS into Hangouts and then it's all the same for you? I never really find them to be a big deal worth making a fuss over.
