I have a MC45 Motorola device an I install On it a windows mobile application with a database Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5, I need to view this database on this mobile device if it is possible using any tools (free or not free).
Hello guys.I recently traveled somewhere in a certain city and i discovered that their happens to be a lot of phone snatching especially to passengers in vehicles.What i discovered is that phones are snatched over the bus window without the passengers aware since most of them are busy texting on social media.
A thought came to me of whether their could be an app which detects the current user location and sends an sms alert telling him to be carefully.Like a message warning him that the location you are now entering is insecure.Please take care of your phone .This would make sure that once users get that sms they can stop for some minutes what they are doing.Imagine loosing your expensive phone ?Its so sad.Can their be such a solution?
Here was my thought.Users can mark those locations that are insecure and would save the coordinates of those areas.So once the app detects you are in a certain area which is marked unsafe in our database,then an sms can be send .My major point of concern is the workability part.
1)How can such app communicate in a real time manner considering yo have to ensure the user's battery charge is not wasted?
2)Does it mean that with such an app it needs to be on everytime checking the user location against the locations in the db?
Those are some of major points of concern am worried about.
Basically what happens is the phone snatchers knock the bus windows so fast that by the time you get to hide your phone,they have already managed to open the window and grabbed the phone.They have mastered the art of opening the windows and this happens when the passengers are stuck in a traffic jam hence becoming an opportunity for the phone snatchers.
I currently use a couple of Mobile banking apps.
Benefit - convenience e.g. being able to transfer money immediately
Risks - I'm concerned about using them except via mobile data for security reasons. In theory if I lose my phone no-one can access my bank details ... in theory!
I also use an app called Duolingo as I'm re-learning French (39 years after last studying it!).
Benefits - convenience and I get daily reminders to do my practice. I can do the practice anywhere, anytime.
Risks - not really a "risk" in the real sense but it can be buggy and the pronunciation isn't always accurate.
Benefit - easy to share photos and convenient to communicate (without talking)
Risk - it's been hacked in the past.
Benefit - keeps me up to date with the soccer scores
Risks - Depression when my team(s) keep losing
Benefit - can adjust my heating when not at home (saves money, gets house warm before I return)
Risks - none that I can think of.
There's a few others - benefits are generally convenience. I don't use unsecured apps if I need to provide any personal info.
Risk is generally that I'm never off my phone so RSI and neck aches are likely to result
Sadaf, Many thanks for your feedback. Have you ever came across anyone having issue with Banking Apps? Also we usually ignore (including myself) to read the licensing terms of these Mobile Apps. Have you ever read them?
Now there has been speculation about all the data being tapped in to. Do you think if this is an issue with any of the Apps?
I am grateful for all your help.
