I use GBoard (Google Keyboard) its made by Google and has all the swype stuff in it, have been using it for yonks.


Same, and I find it works fine 95% of the time. I used to use Swype back in the day, but stopped getting it when Google implemented their own version and haven't looked back.

Oh that's much better, SwiftKey was a load of turd! Now I just have to get all my swear words and Arsenal players into the dictionary (which I'll probably do at the same time knowing us...)

Chrome app on Android seems buggy as gooseberry fool the last few days. Screen tearing when scrolling and some video clips don't have the top half of the image matching the bottom.

I really don't want to change Web browsers but this + the super annoying "open tab in new group" feature are making me reconsider.

Firefox has ublock origin support now. Worth switching for that alone.

Hello.

Posted in apple thread too.

Is there any way to use my samsung galaxy as a USB hub to connect to USB devices and transfer files between them? In this instance a Western digital HDD and my Micro SD (with a USB slot) . Thanks in advance for any help.

Not sure if this kind of thing would work?

Do you mean

Plugin a USB Hard Drive AND an SD card and then copy "stuff" from the SD to the HDD using your phone as the device to do it ?

If so yes that should work.

So you want to transfer files from the usb HDD to the phone's memory? A USB on the go adapter should do the trick if I'm understanding you.

That's thats the one. I basically need to transfer data between 2 USB devices without a computer. So the phone should be able to do this. Cheers!
