iPhone and more can automatically recognize phone numbers and make them an active link to click and initiate a call to that number. I can do this on many webpages, but not in myTinyTodo task list. Anyone know what might be preventing the phones from being able to recognize the number and make it active? You can input a task on this page with a phone number and then view on your phone to see if it is active link or not. Thanks! [url]http://www.mytinytodo.net/demo/?pda[/url]

So I was recently at the big Motorola launch event which spanned New York City, Mexico City, Sao Paulo and London where I was part of the media herd waiting to see exactly what new handsets were about to be revealed. The answer came in triplicate: the Moto X Style, Moto X Play and the new third generation Moto G. As the latter of these was the only device to actually go on sale with immediate effect, and Motorola had review units available to take away, it's the Moto G that I am reviewing here today having put it through …

Is Apple really 'closing the gap' on Android as far as smartphone market share is concerned, or is there more to the battle of the mobile handsets than the latest set of headline figures suggest? [ATTACH=RIGHT]23604[/ATTACH]Certainly if you take the research, and associated press releases surrounding it, from Nielsen regarding smartphone sales then you might be forgiven for thinking that Android handsets are in danger of being overtaken by iPhones in terms of handsets in, well, hands. The [URL="http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/consumer/more-us-consumers-choosing-smartphones-as-apple-closes-the-gap-on-android/"]NeilsenWire release[/URL] in question doesn't help by loudly proclaiming "More US Consumers Choosing Smartphones as Apple Closes the Gap on Android" - …

An increasing number of my acquaintances seem to be in the habit of buying cheap Android smartphones when in China on business and, increasingly, from online auction sites. More often than not these will be clones of flagship models but without the flagship price tag; however, cheap is not always cheerful. I've seen some of these devices with their look-alike operating systems and their flimsy construction, and given a quick once over have to say I wouldn't trust them with my calls, texts and data. That level of mistrust appears to be well founded, not least because it would seem …

Amazon has, this week, revealed the first smartphone designed by the online retail giant in the shape of the Amazon Fire. Described by the company as featuring "two new breakthrough technologies that allow you to see and interact with the world through a whole new lens" and by some others as probably "the biggest single invasion of your privacy for commercial purposes ever." The innovations that have led to these two rather different takes are Dynamic Perspective and the Firefly Button. The first, Amazons informs us, is a sensor system that will respond to the way the user holds, views …

I don't say it often (thank goodness) but OMG, and not in a good way. This [ASUS Transformer V machine](http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/389047/asus-reveals-five-in-one-transformer-book-v?) has got to be the maddest idea I've seen for years. > The Transformer Book V is a Windows 8.1 laptop/tablet hybrid, which turns into an Android 4.4 KitKat device when a 5in Android smartphone is docked in the back. So, let's run that again: it's a Windows 8.1 laptop, a Windows 8.1 tablet, an Android 4.4 laptop,an Android 4.4 tablet and an Android smartphone all in one. Does anyone here have the particular problem that this device will solve? …

Android-driven devices, including smartphones and tablets manufactured by the likes of Asus, LG, Motorola and Samsung, are being sold with pre-installed malware according to claims made by the CTO and Founder of Marble Security. David Jevans made the claim following complaints from a potential client that a mobile security platform from the vendor was mistakenly identifying a Netflix app as being malware. Upon further investigation, Marble researchers discovered that the apps in question were not only malware but were actively harvesting both passwords and financial data which were being sent to a Russian server. Although malware is nothing new, and …

Discount coupons are OK, but consumers consider drive-by location marketing an invasion of privacy. That's the warning message that research across four countries (US, UK, Mexico and India) by ISACA would appear to be flagging loud and clear to retailers wanting to maximise the marketing potential of customers with smartphones. ![9e672bce476015a5b10a7af7765c1643](/attachments/small/0/9e672bce476015a5b10a7af7765c1643.jpg "align-right") ISACA, which specialises in helping business get the most value while managing risk related to information and technology, asked more than 4,000 consumers about their holiday season shopping habits and their opinions on privacy.

Hello Daniweb, I will soon reach the point where I'm ready to move on my journey of programming. One thing that has always interested me is the mobile world. I would like to develop things for the mobile world. What I want to ask/know is tips from people already developing things for the mobile world.

Forget the uprated camera which is now an 8-megapixel beast with dual LED multicoloured 'True Tone' flash (which apparently will help to grab images which look more natural) and slow-motion video capability. Forget the fingerprint scanner built into the new circular …

A jury in the US has, after just three days deliberating, ruled that Samsung must pay Apple more than $1 billion in damages. The lawsuit had focussed on alleged patent infringements by Samsung in terms of both software and design relating to Apple's iPhone and iPad devices. Although not all of the claims made by Apple were upheld by the jury, it did agree that several Samsung devices had violated the intellectual property rights of Apple. At the same time, claims by Samsung that Apple had breached several of its patents were dismissed by the jury. ![dweb-samsungbillions](/attachments/small/0/dweb-samsungbillions.jpg "align-right") Samsung is …

So addicted, in fact, that many iPhone users cannot bear to be parted from their smartphone no matter where they are: and that includes the loo.

According to IT security outfit Kaspersky, which has just [published details](http://www.securelist.com/en/analysis/204792255/Kaspersky_Security_Bulletin_2012_The_overall_statistics_for_2012) of the information security landscape as it was shaped during 2012, 99% of all mobile malware threats now target Android devices. With 6300 new mobile malware samples discovered every month on average across 2012, Android has become the focus for the criminal fraternity for a second year in a row. The remaining 1% of threats, in case you wondered, were mainly targeting Java and Symbian-based smartphones. Across 2012 as a whole, Kaspersky reports, the number of known malicious samples on the Android platform increased "explosively" compared to the previous …

Samsung has fixed the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) exploit that could remotely wipe data from a Galaxy S III smartphone, but that doesn't mean the USSD threat is over: far from it in fact. According to some security researchers, 400 million Android device users are at risk from having their hardware bricked. It's not just owners of the Samsung Galaxy S III that are vulnerable to this particular attack, or indeed just Samsung handsets at all as first thought. As is often the case, the discovery of a vulnerability leads to several new ways to exploit it and that's …

Mobile malware has moved from the security vendor testing labs, out of the realms of marketing hype and FUD, and [firmly onto your smartphone](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/tablets-and-mobile-devices/news/382139/how-mobile-malware-actually-grew-by-1400-percent-in-the-last-12-months). The main target for the malware distributors would appear to be the Android platform, which is not surprising given the rapid growth in the userbase coupled to the 'open to all' nature of the Android app marketplace. Up until now, the usual method of monetizing Android malware had been to subscribe to premium SMS text message services owned by affiliates of the cyber-criminals. Other than this, monetization of malware on the smartphone platform had been rather …

What does your Android, BlackBerry or iPhone say about you? That's what newly published research by YouGov on behalf of Intelligent Environments aimed to find out, but the results were a little surprising to say the least.

Of course, it's all just a bit of fun really but interesting nonetheless. The sample size was 2001 British adults aged 18 plus, questioned between the 18th and 21st March 2011.

While it is possible to look at the iPad as being a big apple (with a small 'a') and the Galaxy Tab a small apple, comparing the Streak to the iPad really is more like apples and oranges. Indeed, the two are so different in every regard that to try and make any sensible comparison is all but impossible so I'm not going to bother. Indeed, I think the more important question that needs to be asked is less whether the Streak is an iPad killer and more whether it is a tablet at all. With an overall size of …

It was only a matter of time before Hollywood's depiction of "the future" started to grow strikingly similar to something one would find in Best Buy's Sunday flyer. The Philips Fluid Smartphone was unveiled earlier today (August 18th), the first device since Doc Brown used banana peels and Miller beer in the Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor to get to the future that has made me laugh. Conceptualized by Brazilian designer Dinard da Mata, the phone is as every bit as pliable as the title suggests. With the use of an organic light emitting diode (OLED) screen, the phone can …

Mobile phones are constantly evolving and improving to the point that they are akin to the PC market of the mid-nineties, when it seemed as if your desktop was horribly outdated six months after purchase. Bag phones became brick phones, which evolved into the iconic flip phone. The advent of the camera phone turned average cell phone owners into overnight paparazzi. Camera quality and screen resolution have continued to increase at exponential rates leaving us with what amounts to a point and shoot camera that can also make phone calls. What’s next you ask? Sharp would like to answer that …

While Apple continues to bask in financial glory thanks in no small part to the iPhone, although the iPad hasn't exactly done it much harm, the same smartphone success does not appear to have rubbed off on the Finnish mobile phone giant Nokia. As Apple gloated about having the most successful quarter in the history of Apple in terms of revenue, up by 61 percent from last year to $15.7 billion, so Nokia could only weep as profits fell by 40 percent despite a slight growth in revenue between April and June from $12.78 billion (€9.91 billion) to $12.89 billion …
