    Ive used Mi Drop in the past, an app by Xiaomi, but Files Go, (or whatever Google call it now), also seems to work OK for infrequent use so am using that one now.

    Both are free and work fine.

    anyone found a dialer app which can show the company name as well on an incoming call?
    I have so many customers in my contacts, always handy to see the company name
    So it would say:
    John Smith
    +61123456789
    Google Inc

    on an incoming call.

    I'm looking for a 360 degree camera app. Any recommendations? I don't want an ad suppored app, happy to pay up to 10 Google bucks.

    The stock google camera app does 360 degree photos really well using its photosphere option. But that's for pixel and Google phones.

    You might be able to find a gcam port for your model
    There's one for the Nokia 7 here

    That Gcam seems to work for me. I'll have to try it out in daylight tomorrow.

    Thanks guy.incogneto :)

    Can you believe Spotify removed the andoird widget in their latest app version?

    some fury around the world on the matter

    I don't use Spotify. But does it have a drop down menu and lock screen widget like most other music players?
    Is the widget really needed?

    Ah! You sound like spotify themselves!

    The controls only appear when player is on or active. So the app must remain persistent to do

    Oh yea, so you could start playing through the widget itself. That makes sense.
    I'm sure someone will take advantage of the loss and make an app that will do something similar soon.
