Synchronizing Evernote Sticky Notes with Yinxiang Biji – 印象笔记

Issue

In this article I will describe how users from China can use and synchronize Evernote Sticky Notes with their localized version of Evernote, called Yinxiang Biji (印象笔记). Evernote launched the Yinxiang Biji (印象笔记) service in May 2012 in order to make Evernote faster and more reliable for around a million of Chinese users, by using local data centers.

How to use Samsung Gear S2 or Gear S3 with devices that have less than 1.5GB of RAM

Issue

When you try to connect your Samsung Gear S2 or Gear S3 smartwatch to a smartphone that has less than 1.5GB of RAM for the first time, you are in for a nasty surprise; although you can find and install Samsung Gear manager application from Google Play store onto your device, it will be unable to successfully connect your smartphone and the Gear S2 / Gear S3.

Samsung Gear manager app can't find and connect to Gear S2 / Gear S3
Samsung Gear manager app can’t find and connect to Gear S2 / Gear S3

If you try to connect Gear S2 / Gear S3 to your device manually, that is directly from phone’s bluetooth settings, the phone is able to find Gear S2 / Gear S3 and even initiates the pairing process together with the “Confirm passkey xxxxxx to pair with Gear S2.” or “Confirm passkey xxxxxx to pair with Gear S3.” message. After you confirm the bluetooth pairing request, a “setting up…” text is displayed on your Gear S2 / Gear S3 watch but the process doesn’t succeed. The connecting process between the smartphone and Gear S2 / Gear S3 needs to be performed from within the Samsung Gear app in order to be successfully completed.

The reason why Samsung Gear app is unable to find and pair the Gear S2 / Gear S3 with devices that have less than 1.5GB of RAM is the Samsung Gear manager app itself; the developers at Samsung enforced a minimum RAM requirement check into the app. When Samsung Gear app is run on the devices that have less than 1.5GB of RAM, it is only able to find and pair with Samsung accessories such as Gear Triathlon S/M, Gear IconX R/L and Gear Circle but not the Gear S2 / Gear S3.

I suspect the reason for their decision is they have encountered some performance issues on some of less capable smartphones during the testing phase and decided to drop support for the mentioned devices altogether to prevent potential complaints from customers.

How to use Samsung Gear Fit 2 with devices that have less than 1.5GB of RAM

Issue

When you try to connect your Samsung Gear Fit 2 sports band to a smartphone that has less than 1.5GB of RAM for the first time, you are in for a nasty surprise; although you can find and install Samsung Gear manager application from Google Play store onto your device, it will be unable to successfully connect your smartphone and the Gear Fit 2.

Why did developers at Samsung impose such a limit is beyond my knowledge, since I am able to successfully connect and use Gear Fit 2 with Sony Xperia T3 smartphone (Android 4.4.4, 1GB RAM) by utilising a modified Samsung Gear app (I have removed the minimum RAM requirement check from the app). I have contacted Samsung on this matter, but up until this moment, I am still waiting for a more technical response, in comparison to the generic one I received, that can be seen below:
“…In order to proper functionality the Gear Fit 2 with all the purpose it was manufactured for, there are some set of requirement standards set for any phone/ Gear watch. For efficient performance the phone needs particular requirements…”
