Disney has released Disney Mix, a messaging app made for kids. Leo thinks that this could be an attempt at getting a new generation of brand loyalty to Disney, much like Sony did with its "My First Sony" Walkmen. This is a good idea for kids under 13 that want to use messaging. The app not only has messaging capabilities, but games, you can make meme-style images, share stickers, and more. Disney has a series of community rules about staying safe and staying respectful to others. There's also moderation, and Disney will ban any users from misusing the app.
Noah is looking for an OBD2 device like the Automatic that can give him an alarm if he passes the speed limit, but lets him set the speed. Leo says that the Automatic would alert him if he goes over 70. They were the first to do the iPhone version, and now does Android.
Brian is getting married and they had to cut back on using a professional photographer due to budgets. Leo says that nowadays everyone has a smartphone, so he should encourage everyone to take pictures and then post them somewhere that they can get them. He could employ a hashtag so it's easier to search, no matter what social network they post to. Facebook has the Moments app that can work well for this. Google Photos has a great solution. He could create a shared Google Album that everyone can upload to. And they don't even need a Google account to upload to it.
William's old 8GB LG G5 has filled up and he wants to add a miniSD card for storage. Can he add apps to the card as well as storage? Leo says that this is a common problem with Android and it largely depends on what flavor of Android he's using. For William, it's Lollipop. But even then, ideally, it gets confusing with the app and the phone. It could be different from app to app. So he'll need to go into the app settings and see if it supports it. There should be an option to move the app to the SD card.
Nabil wants to find an app that would be able to tell him whether or not a store has a particular item in stock. He doesn't like having to call the store and find out that way. Leo says nowadays everyone has digital inventory, and they should know exactly what's in stock. Leo had a hunch that Nabil is thinking of writing this app and wanted to check and see if anyone else has done it yet.
Joel has created a Netflix-like app for cartoons. Can he use YouTube as the source for his app? Leo says that the app would be a window to the videos. Why not? It's just basically a mobile browser. Leo recommends consulting an intellectual property lawyer, though.
Mike is trying to edit a video with his tablet and it says his file is too large, even though he only needs a small portion. Leo suggests restarting the tablet and make the editor the first thing he runs. If that doesn't work, it is probably a limitation of the app itself.
Dave needs to download images he has from his Google Nexus 6. It says it's being moved to an SD card, but he doesn't have one in his phone. Leo says that Dave needs a file manager to be able to find the photos on his drive. ASTRO is a good one, and it's free. There's also ES file manager. He should look for the download folder. It will allow him to move it around.
Doug's phone has been acting possessed. It makes calls and activates apps all by itself. It even called an Uber without him knowing. Leo says it's possible that a remote access trojan could be on his phone, but it's unlikely because iPhones are hard to hack. Leo says that Doug should change all his passwords immediately. It's clear that something not good is on there, so Leo recommends wiping the phone. Start over. Doug should get rid of any apps that may have been involved and make sure he removes his credit card info from the Uber app.
