I am an avid Android user. I started with the original Motorola Droid, moved to a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and am now using a Moto X. My first tablet is a Nexus 7 (2012).

Here are my top 5 apps:

  1. Gmail
  2. Google+
  3. Feedly
  4. Pocket
  5. Pocket Casts

Had my first serial-upvote event on 2012-09-28. The second the next day. The third on 2014-02-09. My first serial-downvotes event was on 2014-02-28.

It can take some time for the photos to appear online. I think you just need to be patient.

When that link stops working, this answer has no value. Please don't make future readers go to some other site to get the information they need.

comment Phone screen went black after getting wet and will not turn on
Most of the advice I've seen for a drenched phone (of any stripe) is to immediately turn it off, remove the battery, bury it in some uncooked rice for several days, and pray. If, after three or four days, if it won't take a charge or turn on, it's time for a new phone.

comment Simplest way to transfer files from PC to Android device (wireless)
There's a ton. You could use one of the cloud sync apps (Dropbox, Google Drive, Copy, etc.), you could use one of the Android remote control apps (Airdroid, etc.). Even some of the file managers have a way to get to shared drives on your wifi network (ES File Explorer, ASTRO, etc.) Did you try searching on the Play Store? Also, simplest is pretty subjective; we prefer questions that garner objective answers.

comment unable to send media files through whats apo
There's not really enough information here for us to help you. What do you mean by "can't send"? Are you able to attach the files but the messages don't go? Is there some sort of error message? Are you unable to attach the files at all? Is there any kind of file that does work? What sort of files are you trying to send? Please edit your question.

comment Making SMS sound and other notifications play in speaker with headphones inserted
I would tend to agree, but it seems that there are some people around here who see "is there an app that" and immediately reach for the "close" button. You might also want to have a look at How do I ask a question that may require recommending a product?

comment Model of the phone incorrectly displaying lost device
Why have you tagged this "hardware"? Where does the message appear? Is it a notification, a toast popup, what?

comment Sending a group the same message and get individual replies
I'm sure there's a ton. Samsung may even have included something (they tend to load up their devices with...extras). Did you try searching in the Play Store? Did you look at the questions in the "Related" section to the right?

Your question will do better here if you focus on the problem you're trying to solve rather than asking us to help you find an app which you think will solve your problem.

Did you check your app drawer? Perhaps you have just accidentally deleted the shortcut from your home screen.

How about some details on how to do that?

comment Do all devices (that can connect to PC) power up when connected to PC?
Your logic is flawed. Just because your Android devices turn on when you plug them in to charge doesn't mean that all Android devices act that way. To wit: I just turned off my Moto X, connected it with a USB cable to charge it, the screen came on briefly to show me the battery balance and that it was charging, but the phone is off.

comment Is it possible to get Tasker to play the next song in Spotify
An answer with no useful information except a link to somewhere else is not a good answer. It's hardly an answer at all.

My Android devices don't power on if they're off when I plug them in to charge. Nor do my other non-Android devices with USB charging. Can you cite a source for your assertion?

comment Where's the alarm widget on my new HTC One m8?
Sounds like you've got it right: It's probably a Samsung-specific widget.

Why is this tagged "text-prediction"?
