[Q] Android 3.1 & Proxy Settings
So I just got my asus transformer the other day, and coming from an avid iPhone/iOS background, I feel a bit let down. In no way am I a fanboy, but theres issues im having with this android device that have never been as such with iOS.
Mainly, proxy settings! I was fortunate enough to get my device a day before the 3.1 update came out, and the update brought with it native support for manually setting the proxies.
unfortunately, these settings dont work. I set it up to work with my workplaces proxy server and even though the info is there, they dont work. not only that, they only apply to the browser. Two huge issues!! Now most people would just discard the device and go back to what theyre used to, but I want to give this device a chance before I (possibly) return it to the store.
Are there any apps for 3.1 that set a UNIVERSAL proxy setting? Something that not only will work, but also apply the proxy settings to youtube, the market place, and anything else that runs on the device. Before the update came out, I tried using AnyCut to setup a shortcut to the hidden proxy settings, but even then it was shoddy at best. Half the time id click on the link and it wouldnt even open up the proxy settings page. (note, Half. it did work sometimes)
Essentially, if I cant get this thing to run at work, its going back and will be exchanged for an Acer Iconia running win7. I really hope theres a solution here!
