I'm a huge Android fan and also the founder of the DroidLessons website. I started obsessing about the Android platform as soon as I got my HTC EVO phone in mid-2010. Ever since then, I have been obsessed with learning all that I can about the Android OS and sharing that knowledge with my friends and family.

    Hi, I am so happy I found you. I am 77, and just bought a 7″ Android tablet, wifi. There was about three pages of instructions that came with the tablet, and left most of my questions in the dark. I am computer moxey, but the tablet is so different. No Right click, right? So I was busy looking for an app that might help me, and one had a light blue link to you. Hooray!!! Your help on How to add a bookmark on your Android home screen was much needed. Thank you again.

    I have a big question still, wifi is great at my home, but if I go to a friends who has wifi, i can get a strong signal, but it will not connect. It tells me that it is looking for the IP. That makes no sense to me. It was advertised that I could go anywhere, and find a wifi connection. So far, this is untrue. I’ve viseted a few places and can pic up a strong connection, but each time it looks for the Ip and never connects. Help??
    Thank again, I will be telling everyone about your site.
    God Bless
    Lyndell

    Hi, I just got an Archos 80 G9 tablet and I am so lost. I’m trying to drag a javascript link to add to my book marks. But I have no idea how to drag, long press doesn’t work and there is no bookmark toolbar.
    Please, can you help?
