When I open chrome to the Google home page and have all those buttons to go to websites DDMS and DDF don't come up even though I always go there. Occasionally they'll come up and than disappear. How do I get them to stay there?

When I click on a podbean podcast link it opens up Google play store and goes to the app page even though it's already installed. What am I doing wrong?

Not sure (and I don't have this app), but you may want to take a look in the phone's settings at the App Settings at the Open by Default section.

Maybe GenTech Safe. ($99 one time fee). But I'm not sure they allow Whatsapp.

Does GenTech service mobile devices already? They haven't about a month ago.

Recently I've noticed that the Google app on my phone is consuming a lot of battery (~20%) over the day. I don't think that makes any sense. Anybody else have that?

People have been having this issue with other phones as well

I'm looking for a productivity app that does not drain battery and is not hard on the phone. Something that can block apps between times of the day and to give notices if too much time spent on a app.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Google’s Digital Wellbeing app, not sure if it is still exclusive Pixel only beta or every Android phone now.

Stayfocused by innoxapps.

After combing through the play store for hours and trying out countless of apps, I found that all but this one were full of ads or were easy to find workarounds or lacked necessary customization for times.

Then I stumbled upon this one. It is only worthwhile if you buy the full version ($5 maybe 8, for lifetime subscription).

But this is uber-customizable, very professional great UI. When I discovered a bug, I sent them an email and they responded and pushed an update the next day.

Once you try this, you won't need another app.

KosherCell.org has a koshering service similar to Gentech Safe with a whole more flexibility. WhatsApp can be added.

I have a galaxy s10 and my photo folder in gallery disappeared with hundreds of pictures.  I was sure I'd be ok because everything backs up to google photos but they are missing now from google photos as well!  Please help me recover them!!  thanks

Check the trash in Google.

 Or try with one of the media recover sites.

 Should be done right after it happens and not a month later.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

What does this symbol mean by the Wifi? Never saw this before .

 I'm using T-mobile service and connected to my home WiFi.

I would play around with the roaming settings and see what happens, don't forget a basic restart can go a long way ;)
