Hi, guys i love the show. I listen to your podcast ever week. I was wondering what you guys think of anti-virus software for android phones. Is it a neccessary ? opinions vary on the subject, and if guys are in favor then which one do you recommend ? http://download.cnet.com/8301-2007_4-20031453-12.html
I keep Getting generic icons instead of the proper icons for the programs.
Seems worse since the phones big software update.
Sprint HTC Evo 4G
Android Ver. 2.3.3
Baseband Ver. 2.15.00.05.02
Build # 4.22.651.2
PRI Ver. 2.15_003
PRL Ver. 01115
Lots more info but those seem to be what may be the more important ones?
It gets really old scrolling through the home pages and opening folders and finding 80% of your programs are having generic icons holding their spot.
Any help would be much appreciated.
If I could swing a two fer in, is there a program that lets me assign individual sounds for text message much as you get to do for phone calls?
text sender “”A”" gets this message tone, text sender “”B”" gets that message tone, etc…
