iPad, Android, Kindle, or Windows tablets.
Dave wants an app that would allow him to use his iPad Pro for work by handwriting notes and saving them to Word documents. Leo says that there are dozens of apps out there, but it depends on how good his handwriting is. The iPad doesn't have built in handwriting recognition. Here are some good options to consider:
Matthew wants to take paper notes with handwriting recognition and he wants to know if the Surface Pro will suffice. Leo says that the Surface Pro is fantastic. It's a tablet with an attachable keyboard (he should get the type version). It comes with a stylus. He can use OneNote to do it as it's tightly integrated.
Jose is having trouble with his Samsung Galaxy tablet. Leo says to go into recovery mode to get it back to the factory default settings. XDA Developers may also have a firmware image that he can then replace it with.
Stephanie would like to build an app. How can she find someone who can help her? Leo says that app ideas are a dime a dozen, and the trick is how to get the right person to make it and market it. There are great places to find a programmer. eLance is one such place. She should ask for references.
Joe wants to know how much he should spend on a tablet to get a decent one. Leo says not a lot. The Nexus 7 is $200 and it runs great. Samsung is a great place to look as well. The best place for a good tablet, though, is Google itself. That way he'll get updates as they come out.
George bought a new Microsoft Surface Book 3. He was hoping it would be more consistent with Windows 10. How can he turn off the log in and just have it always logged in? Leo says he can type the Windows key + R, and type "Users" and disable the password requirement for logging in. George could also go into the power settings and have it not log out or go to sleep as fast.
Becky's new tablet freezes up every time she tries to connect to the internet. Leo says to try connecting to another internet portal like a Wi-Fi hotspot and see what happens. If it doesn't work there either, then there's definitely an issue. It sounds like a hardware problem. The antenna may have gotten loose or a connection may have broken. Since Becky is on a budget, Leo recommends going to Samsung and looking at their refurbished section. She can save some money that way.
Brian is having trouble syncing to Outlook on his laptop, iPhone, and iPad. Leo suggests going into iOS settings and removing the Outlook sync account. He could also install the Outlook app.
It could also be an issue with his Exchange server at work, especially if other coworkers are having issues. He should use Microsoft's app on the laptop. Then remove the Exchange server from iOS devices and reinstall it. It's likely a network issue with work. Brian should talk to his IT guys, as they may have to configure it.
Richard has a Google Nexus 9 and signed up for the beta program for Google N, but he can't get past Google. Has be bricked it? Leo says no, he can't really brick it that way. Leo says to go into recovery mode and back out of it. He'll also have to wipe his data and cache. Richard will have to download the drivers, do an ADB, and then download and install the Nexus 9 image. He can also try reinstalling the N Dev again, since maybe it was a bad download.
