Samsung now has Note7 exchange stations in airports

If you didn't get the message the first, second, or third time, you should really exchange your Note7. In the last bullet to Samsung's reputation, the US Department of Transportation banned carrying a Note7 onto flights. While there is no questioning that the Note7 is dangerous, having to leave your phone behind isn't ideal. Thankfully, Samsung is in the process of setting up Note7 exchange stations at airports worldwide.

Nine 3.0 adds Calendar, Exchange ActiveSync 16, drafts, and quick responses to its popular Outlook client

If you're an Outlook user, odds are you've downloaded the Outlook app on your Android phone or you've considered Nine as a capable third-party alternative. We first looked at it more than two years ago and found it to be an attractive if limited app with plenty of interesting features.

Nine has evolved a lot since its release and has now reached version 3.0.0. In it, the app gains a lot of important additions for any Outlook or Exchange user. There's now Calendar support so you can see your emails and tasks in a calendar view, Exchange ActiveSync 16 support for Office 365 users, common draft folders between the phone and the online inbox, quick responses to emails and conversations available at a swipe, and plenty of improvements to the design and navigation of the app.

Update Wednesday is starting off with a new version of the Gmail app. There don't appear to be any grand changes with this release, but it does boast at least a couple minor improvements. The only obvious change in this update comes in the form of a new full screen workflow for adding email accounts.

Cyanogen OS Switches To Boxer As Its Email Client — Fresh New Interface And Premium Features Coming To Users In A Few Weeks

In its bid to walk further and further away from Google in its own Android OS, Cyanogen announced a recent partnership with Boxer, the third-party email app. As of Cyanogen OS 12, which will be available in the coming weeks as an update to the OnePlus One and YU Yureka (and will launch on future devices), Boxer will come installed out of the box as the default email client.

The collaboration with Boxer comes hot on the heels of Cyanogen's rebrand and Qualcomm partnership, and will provide users with all of the benefits of Boxer's premium service, including multiple accounts (Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo!

Microsoft Outlook Preview Adds PIN Policy Compliance For Exchange, IT Admins Collectively Exhale

Microsoft's recently released Outlook Preview for Android has generally been well-received by end users, but it had this little problem. One of the main reasons to like it was its native support of Microsoft Exchange accounts. Unfortunately, it did not support the device administrator features we are accustomed to seeing when using Exchange or Office 365 accounts. An update rolling out today helps to bring its security back in line, though.

So what was missing? Well, the administrator of the account can require that your device be locked with a PIN. This is often the case with corporate accounts, since a company doesn't want your carelessness to cause the loss of company secrets or things like that.

Google's Copresence Looks Like A Contactless, Cross-Platform Version Of Android Beam

Several months ago, we discussed something called Nearby, a project that - at the time - seemed to be Google's effort to let "people, places, and things" know when a user is, well, nearby. It seems that Google is still hard at work on its effort to connect various devices to each other and their surroundings, but Copresence (an internal name for this functionality) may have a more specific scope in this effort than we first estimated, apparently including iOS devices in the fun.

Copresence, which we saw a glimpse of in a recent teardown, appears to be aimed at letting nearby Android and iOS devices communicate with one another in a variety of ways, exchanging files, photos, directions, messages, or other content, essentially making Copresence a sort of contactless, cross-platform version of Android Beam.

Gmail 5.0 Will Support Exchange, Obviate The Stock Email App In Android Lollipop

Early this morning, we took a quick look at the onboarding video/process for Google's impending update to Gmail 5.0. The critical feature shown off in the video was the ability to handle all your email providers in one app, meaning users could access Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, and others all from Google's singular Gmail app.

We've since learned that - besides handling the providers above - Gmail will support Exchange mail, and it appears Gmail will obviate the stock Email app entirely, prompting users to go directly to the Gmail app instead of dealing with a separate solution.

Perhaps it's warranted to put the AOSP Email app on a deathwatch after all - with Gmail wrapping up its support for external email services (including Exchange) and great Gmail features presumably covering whatever service you choose to use on the app, the stock Email app's usefulness may be reaching an end.
