    Made the jump, but have a small issue

    I found a good deal on a verizon s4 at walmart today for $138 (and a $40 gift card on top of that).

    I get the phone home and realize that I can't install flash player. Any ideas what is going on?

    You didn't say what you have done/tried. It installed fine on my S4. You need to enable installation of apps from unknown sources then use the link in my signature to download the APK and tap to install.

    Did you try something similar and it didn't work?

    got it. thanks for the heads up.

    Another question for you. On the droid I had, I was able to set the wifi to turn on based on my gps location, or time of day. Is there a built in app on the S4 that will do this or do I need to look for a 3rd party app?

    Flash player is no longer supported on Android after 4.0 (ICS)

    The Bionic had Smart Actions, but the Galaxy S4 doesn't have an equivalent. There are, however, 3rd party apps that should be able to do what you wish. One that gets mentioned is Tasker (cost $2.99).

    It also doesn't have a Favorites (for phone contacts) widget, but you can make a folder and stick your favorites there. Actually pretty sweet.

    I downloaded (from the signature) and did the install of Flash, but it doesn't seem to work. I went to End of the World. Flash Animation and tried it on the native internet, Boat Browser and Chrome. None worked. Ah well, it's no biggie.

    I have the s4 with flash and use Dolphin browser from the play store. You have to go into settings to enable flash. It works.
