    Question Just got a Nexus 5 and am having some apps/software problems

    Hi everyone
    So I've finally made the jump to Android after being so long on iOS... but I've run into several issues that I am unable to find the answer for (I've looked around the forums and Googled around) but can't seem to find the answer, so I'm hoping someone here would be able to help.

    1. Email
    The built-in email app (that ships with the Nexus 5 / Kit Kat 4.4.2) doesn't seem to handle image attachments very well.
    I receive quite a fair bit of jpg and png images in my emails everyday. However, one of my emails I got yesterday was several png images, and it just shows me an empty placeholder when I tap the 'show pictures' button.

    I've tried the K-9 mail app but it also "failed" to display the images correctly...

    Right now I'm trying out this Evo mail app and it seems to be working fine but it is quite lacking in some areas (eg; unable to set refresh delay).

    2. Google Keep
    Initially I wanted to use Keep to sync all my existing Notes (iCloud: Mac, iOS) onto the Nexus, but after copying everything onto Keep, apparently some of the notes show up as empty.
    I've done restarts, and 'forced' it to sync but it didn't work.

    Any ideas?
    I did some Googling and saw but it seems no one has solved this yet.

    Now I'm trying out SimpleNote and it works a charm (I hope!)

    3. What is the best Twitter app out there?
    I'm now using the ad-supported version of Plume and I kinda like it, but it's quite a premium at S$6.22 (compared to most iOS apps).

    Any other recommendations before I plonk down my money?

    4. Photos vs Gallery
    Which do I use?
    Also, I have imported (via USB) several hundred photos from my iPhone, but it seems the Gallery app doesn't allow me to 'Select All' then import it.
    Is there some restrictions on the max number of images you can select and import? It also doesn't allow me to rename the folder?

    Thanks for reading

    You could try using Evernote instead of Google keep and what not. I've never actually heard of any problems with Keep until you've pointed them out.

    Hi Brian, I've thought about using Evernote (in fact I've used the Mac and iOS versions previously) but am not so keen on their limitations for free users:
    Free: Upload up to 60 MB of data each month, with unlimited storage
    My notes are mainly text but 60MB seems a bit miserable.

    Thanks!

    Seems like Plume isn't so bad after all

    Twitter's Android app works just fine on my Nexus 5.

    I never said it didn't. That's the title of the article from AC. Unusable in the sense that it isn't very good, not that it doesn't work at all...

    Strangely, Evo mail decided not to load several of my email messages today so I'm back to K-9 which all of a sudden, works great.

    *sigh*

    Gallery is a system folder (so is Photos) so it can't be renamed. Photos is the newer app. They'll be phasing Gallery out at some point. So if you plan to have more Androids in the future start and stay with Photos (that's what I'd do).
