    Hi guys, I have been going through hell and back over the last week trying to get Google Play installed on Android Studio.

    Help Android music players all have the same, wrong album artwork

    I've started Googling last night on why all of the android music players show the wrong album artwork for my "Unknown" album. For example, when I play any song in this album, the big album artwork shows up, which basically shows a male rapper for like 80% of my songs. Playing music on the plane...

    A few weeks ago I started using Google Wallet and thought it was pretty nice.

    Help Accidental Deletion of Photos + Mac Android File Manager?

    Just accidentally deleted photos from the Camera section by using the garbage Kies app for Mac. Is there a way to recover these? I'm guessing not. If no one can answer the first question, would someone happen to at least know something that's better than Kies? I'm looking for a file manger...

    An actual SSH client that works and has useful options?

    I'm using a Galaxy Note Pro and trying to find an actual SSH client that makes sense. I've tried ConnectBot, but I'm having issues with resolution + browsing on my SD card for private keys. I've also tried JuiceSSH, but there's no options to even modify the resolution that I know of. So...

    Handscent - Disable MMS slideshows?

    Can't believe I have to open a slideshow to view multiple pictures o_O, as great as this app is. This feels like a very cheap feature to me. I can't quickly go back and forth between pictures because I can't even control the bottom slider. Anyways, enough of venting. Trying to see if anyone...

    Alternative ways to sync Exchange without adding account

    I'm still trying to find ways to use my Exchange account without necessarily adding it to my S5 device, because features such as the fingerprint authentication are absolutely amazing and I won't go without it.

    Help Prevent MMS from showing slideshows

    I've found a lot of old threads about this issue, but still no solid fix or workaround from what I've seen thus far. Just curious to know if anyone knows of a way to prevent incoming pictures from showing up as slideshows. I can't believe it actually does this. I can't move the slideshow...

    Bypassing exchange security features to use S5's fingerprint ability

    I'm currently using CloudMagic to receive email from my exchange account because I can't add it to the default email app. This is because exchange requires me to use a PIN as opposed to allowing me to use the fingerprint scanner. However, I can't sync calendars and contacts either, so I'm kind...

    Solid blue LED

    Yesterday I just picked up the S5 and so far I absolutely love this phone. However, every now and again when I lock my phone, I notice that the notification LED is solid blue. It's almost as if I have a modifications waiting for something. I just got rid of the Galaxy Note 3 and this phone...

    Help Email app crashes when opening from notification bar

    A few nights ago, I got an email indicating that my Note 3 could not sign into my Exchange email account. I immediately logged in via web browser to make sure my password was still the same, but I had been locked out. However, even when my AD account is locked (for whatever reasons), it never...

    Best Chrome to Phone Alternative?

    I noticed that Chrome to Phone sometimes don't work, or takes an extremely long time. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the app, or if it's an android thing (like maybe it's only allowed to check every x seconds). I'm looking for an alternative, preferably one that's better. Anyone out...

    Root Freeze multiple apps at the same time?

    I see that Titanium Backup is pretty good with freezing apps. However, it's a pain having to manually select + freeze all of the apps one by one. Is there any way of doing this by selecting multiple files? I haven't found a way to do this with titanium.
