Android Auto

I’m only a little late to the game here, but I’ve been trying out the Android Auto phone app, and it’s pretty great. Just what I need when I’m driving with my phone dash mounted, nothing more. Also some major improvements in voice control for texts and reading of texts when on the road. Finally puts Android up to par with Cortana for driver friendly notification and response. Very pleased so far!

Oneplus One

Not really sure why you’d buy a Nexus 6 with this thing on the market. The reviews look pretty good – better battery life than Nexus, 64GB for $349… camera kinda sucks, but still… $349 – compared to $649 for the Nexus 6. That’s a no-brainer. I also personally really like Cyanogenmod – I use the latest version on my rooted Kindle Fire HD 7. Once they got the auto-update thing working, it’s just as good as stock Android IMO. If anyone has OnePlus One invites to share, let me know! It looks like I just missed the open sale.

Android mail app and missing Exchange mail folders

It has been very frustrating trying to check work email (Exchange Online / Office365), because I wasn’t getting all of my folders – most importantly my Archive folder where everything goes (Inbox Zero!). I finally found a solution that worked for me and got my folders loading on my Android device, with the stock mail app. Incidentally, I didn’t find a good replacement for the stock mail app, at least for Exchange servers.

Cisco VPN

I think it’s hilarious that the Cisco VPN icon hasn’t changed since the 90s. That is all.
