Most of us own a smartphone (w/camera) and/or a tablet (w/camera). So HOW do you transfer all those pictures to your laptop/desktop?
A – use a “cloud service” (like dropbox)?
B – Use a memory card?
C – a usb cable
D – ????
I just found a BETTER WAY – WiFi File Transfer by smarterDroid (yep – this is an Android tool 😉 It comes in two “versions”: A FREE one and a paid for one ($1.40 – yes a dollar forty) the free one is limited to 5mb files.
To use it, just download from the play store (look for wifi file) to your droid device(s).. fire it up.. open a browser to the ip address:port specified and have at it.
NOTE: The app is really a web server and you are connectling directly – NOT thru a “cloud service” so your data is protected.
A while back there was a video made/posted by the SalesLogix Training group on the Mobile Web Application (version 1.x). Along with the recent release of SalesLogix Version 8.0 was the release of Mobile 2.0.
2.0 builds on the the original functionality of the 1.x release (specifically 1.2) and gives us a much nicer (mobile) user experience. One of the things I especially like are what are called “List Actions” (I call them “Immediate Actions”). “IA’s” are available on all of the “List Views”. You get to them by simply clicking on the Icon (rather than the text) and they appear in a new line just below the list item.
For a look at “IA’s” and other things, jump over to uTube and take a look:
Oh yes, you do NOT have to upgrade your 7.5.4 SalesLogix to 8.0 to run Mobile 2.0 – BUT there are some features which ONLY work with 8.0 (SData). I’ll be posting just what these things are in a future blog.
Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Only time will tell.
On Monday, October 8, 2012 there was an announcement by W3C on the alpha release of Web Platform Docs. The purpose of this is to establish a single point/place where we all can go for “All Things Web Development”.
Her’s a blog posting by Jean Paoli (President – Microsoft Open Technologies) on the announcement:
Bear in mind this site is only a few days old but it has names like Adobe, Facebook, Google, HP, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nokia, Opera that are stewards of the project. If they pull this off it will save all of us TONS of time (translate $$$) in development/research as related to web efforts.
Let us wish them the best and contribute to the effort for the common good! So jump over and take a look NOW!
