    Default 18 questions about Android and Note 10.1

    Most of these are questions and one or two are observations that I'd like others to comment on.

    1. How do I disable Facebook notifications in the bar? I installed the Facebook app but didn’t ask it to whistle at me any time there was activity.

    2. I assume that when I get my Note to usb adapter I can use any usb mouse and Keyboard with it?

    3. How can I read and also edit MS Word and Power Point documents on my Note so that I can use the files both on my Note 10.1 and my Windows 7 laptop interchangeably?

    4. What’s the best onscreen keyboard set up? I like the fact that I have access to numbers but the keys are smaller than they were on my iPad. Are there different keyboard options in the settings or can I download ones that will replace the stock one without me having to use the ‘keyboard app’ running all the time?

    5. When post on Facebook with my Note 10.1 I can’t browse my albums/folders, either through the Gallery or Quickpic. It goes through either of those to the entirety of my photos collection which is near a thousand photos and it’s a pain in the neck scrolling to get the one I want.

    6. In Facebook when I search my friends list it lists the names alphabetically according to first name rather than family name. Also it doesn’t have an alphabet quick scroll column on the right so I have to always scroll all the way down to whatever name. I know I can type it but sometimes I want to scroll.

    7. Do I need a screen protector? I use a case so the screen is covered most of the time. I didn’t use a screen protector with my iPad and didn’t get a scratch in 18 months of use.

    8. How do I create an ‘app like’ book mark image on my home screen. On the iPad I could select ‘Add to home screen’ and it creats a link that looks like an App.

    9. When I’m charging via the usb why does the green battery icon have a red X over it? It seems to charge so this icon is a bit confusing as it gives the impression that it’s not charging.

    10. What’s the best calendar app. Is it better for me to use the stock one so I can sync it and use it on my pc and Android phone also? Also, Wouldn’t it be better to have an updating calendar app icon so that it shows the actual date rather than ‘31’ all the time?

    11. As I’m transferring from iOS how do I transfer my contacts book info over? Is there even a way other than doing it one at a time? Same question goes for all the ‘Pages’ and ‘Keynote’ projects I have on my iPad and in the iCloud. I can do them one at a time but is there a way to do the lot at once?

    12. When I plugged my Note 10.1 into my laptop and dragged a folder of about 3GB from one folder into another (on the same Note 10.1 and on the same SD card) it seemed to take about 15 minutes to do it. Is it always that slow to move files around?

    13. I dropped some AVI and other video files from my laptop to the Note 10.1 but the stock video editor wouldn’t recognise them (although the video player would). When I make a video with the ‘Note’s camera the video editor are fine with them. What format does the editor use? I have files on my laptop that I want to edit on my Note and need to know so I can convert them with ‘Format Factory’ before I transfer them.

    14. Why is the stock editor so rubbish? Is it the stock Android editor or is that a Samsung app? It won’t even let me trim a 20 second clip that I show with the Note’s camera as it says it’s too short to trim. It also has almost no features.

    15. Is there a better video editor for Android than the stock one.

    16. Is there a good sound editor for Android (the more simple the better).

    17. Predictive text will offer up suggestions in the black bar above the keyboard but if I type a word it doesn’t know such as the game name ‘Trackmania’ it won’t actually allow me and auto changes it even though I didn’t select one of the predicted words. How do I keep the predictive text option on but stop it from taking over my typing?

    18. How do I get my email to thread so back and forths between the same person don’t get listed in multiple messages but rather one thread?

    I use Drop box along with Smart Office

    All it takes is that one time....I would.

    I use the standard app with all of my google calendars (4) and love it.

    3. How can I read and also edit MS Word and Power Point documents on my Note so that I can use the files both on my Note 10.1 and my Windows 7 laptop interchangeably? - Polaris Office comes with the Note.
    Screen protector - I tried two and didn't like them. I keep mine in a folding case and am just careful to not touch the screen with something that could scratch it.
    8. How do I create an ‘app like’ book mark image on my home screen. On the iPad I could select ‘Add to home screen’ and it creats a link that looks like an App. - Do a long hold on the app you want on your home screen, then you can move it to your choice of screen pages.
    9. When I’m charging via the usb why does the green battery icon have a red X over it? It seems to charge so this icon is a bit confusing as it gives the impression that it’s not charging.
    It may be charging at a trickle but it's certainly not the best way. Your original charger should give you a white lightening bolt over the battery icon when it's charging.
    18. How do I get my email to thread so back and forths - there's a combined view option. I think that will do what you want.
    The manual can be found on this page and can be very helpful

    Also helpful since you're coming from apple, try browsing through here, Apple User's Guide to Android The forum has information on setting up facebook and contact apps.

    3. Second the suggestion of Polaris Office with Dropbox
    4. I was using thumb keyboard but lots of people like swiftkey. I'm sticking with Samsung for the handwriting.
    7. I got a screen protector to cut down on fingerprints. It's your tablet, please yourself
    8. Go-to widgets and select bookmark. It should give you the option of which bookmark to put on-screen.
    9. Weird. Usually not charging when that icon is showing. Are you using original cables?
    10. Don't use my calendar, use the name of you Google calendar to get maximum access. Also use a widget so you get an agenda view of your schedule. You can find agenda widgets in the play store
    12. That's how long mine takes.
    15, 16, 18 check the play store for apps that do what you want. There are often video demos
    17. If you go back and correct the word then tap on it in the suggestion area, it adds it to the dictionary.
