VOIP client Zoiper every few hours will show reg failed 923 error

When this error is shown, if I just refresh the registration, it works. So I don't believe anything is wrong with the VOIP provider or setup. It seems like something on my phone might be falling asleep, and that breaks the connection until refreshed, or something similar. [more inside]

What's the best camera app for the iPhone?

I have an iPhone 6s Plus, which has become pretty much my only camera for the last several months. I actually like it a lot and have been learning to get some photos out of it that I really like. However, I'd like to have more control over the camera settings than I get from the default app. Is there an app that does this well? [more inside]

Improvements or alternatives for YouTube Kids on Android & iOS

How can I address the following problems with the YouTube Kids app: (1) no whitelisting, (2) no downloads and (3) stability problems? The solution can be another app that offers similar control over viewing, or any other tips or configuration options, but the end result must be suitable to put in the hands of a young toddler. Thank you!

Customer service platform that suggests canned responses

We're a small business currently using just a shared gmail account for our customer service inquiries. We're looking to switch to software better designed for this usage. I've been checking out Frontapp.com, freshdesk, zendesk., desk.com, salesforce, and others. One feature I'm having trouble nailing down though, is for the software to automatically search for certain keywords in the incoming emails and suggest canned responses we have on file based on what's found. Which platforms can do this?

How can I affordably conceal cables/cords/devices after I mount my TV?

I just bought a condo and need to mount my TV to the wall. I’d like to conceal as many of the other external parts and devices (TV power cord, cables, cable box, and Roku) as possible once the TV is mounted. My brother-in-law mentioned infrared repeaters and RF remotes as possible solutions, but I am overwhelmed by the options and their mechanics, which products are compatible with my TV, etc. [more inside]

Creating, editing, and administering surveys on a tablet w/o internet

Does anyone know of any applications that allow you to create, edit, and administer surveys, all offline and on a tablet (Android)? Ideally the application would save responses as a .csv or another file format that's amenable to data analysis. I'm currently using KoBo Toolbox, which allows you to administer surveys offline, but it doesn't seem to allow me to edit existing surveys or upload new surveys when I'm out of internet access. (I conduct research in remote regions where internet is not available for long periods of time.) Thanks in advance! [more inside]

How do you batch change the location and date of photos in Mac?

So I took a bunch of photos on a trip to Japan and the time and date are wrong on all of them because of a mistaken camera setting. Is there a way to change the metadata for the files somehow all at once instead of one at a time?

How to forward emails to an Epson printer

I'm running an event. I'd like for guests to be able to email photos to photos@exampleevent.com, and for the attachments to be forwarded to an Epson PictureMate PM-400 for immediate printing. The Epson has an email address like epson1234@print.epsonconnect.com. If I email that address directly, it prints. So this should be easy, right? Wrong. [more inside]

Recommendations for a super simple Apple Watch app/game for kids to play

My church kids love my Apple Watch, but unfortunately, there isn't a lot of flashy stuff to show them anymore. I need recommendations for an app/game appropriate for 3-5 year olds, so something really really simple like a sound effects board or drawing program. Something with big buttons, lots of colors, and preferably sound effects!

What does Ubuntu contribute towards a Chromebook experience?

Now that, through a previous exchange, I sorted out my Chromebook, I'm reading about installing Ubuntu on it. I can find how to do it but, really, I can't find why to do it. I love my Chromebook and I have no problems with it. But I am curious as to how Ubuntu could make it better. Any explanations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
