I have a Motorola Moto G 8GB which is running very low on storage (only about 800mb left). This phone does not take Micro SD cards but it comes with 50GB Google Drive storage. However i haven't used this at all. I am wondering whether i could download android apps and games to google drive, dropbox etc. Games like Real Racing take up about 1GB so i cannot download it to my phone. Can i download it to the Cloud? If this is not possible, is there any way that i could save the app data on the cloud. E.g. The Simpsons: Tapped Out is about 37mb to download off the play store, but then you must download the updates etc which are about another 250mb. is there anyway to save this 250mb on the cloud. Or any other games data.
An emulator seems like a great idea for my Droid, with a huge selection of games at my disposal that I might actually play for once (thanks to a number of situations where I find myself bored with nothing but my phone on me), but I hesitate to pick one because they all cost money.
I'm looking for a bit of information before I jump into anything. What are the different platforms emulated, how well to they run (if there's a site with compatibility ratings, that would be excellent), how much do they cost, and most importantly, how well do they control?
Is there a way to listen for application launches?I'm trying to develop an application where the user can specify a list of applications that he/she wants to "protect." If they are in this list, then whenever the application is launched, my app will ask them to enter a password.However, I've been going through the Android SDK for days and can't figure out how to listen for application launches.
Just wanna know how the apps where you hold your phone up to some music that is playing and it tells you the artist and song and all that jazz, which of these apps work on the Evo? Oct heard some are pretty buggy on some phones so I wanna know which one to get
3 days ago I purchased a brand new factory unlocked Moto G in Pakistan. The problem is, whenever I try to uninstall any app I downloaded off the Play Store the phone shuts down and then the start-up screen is displayed after which the phone restarts back to the unlock screen. I did a complete reset to factory settings but the problem still persists. The version of Android is 4.4.2

Anyone find any good poker or card apps? I plan on trying the Texas Hold'em ones but I was looking for something different than that. I would like to find a 13 card poker game but have had no luck. Any suggestions?
I have a non-dev htc magic not unlocked and after a couple days of browsing the market I noticed there were only free apps. Does anyone know how I can access the stuff that cost money? Using demos is incredibly frustrating.
Can any of you parents of 3-5 year olds out there let me know if you have found any games or apps that are educational or at least fun for kids in this age group? I have several games on my itouch but can't seem to find them for the droid. The droid serach engine does not seen to work as well as itunes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So this weekend while checking out the new Wegman's grocery in Leesburg, my almost 4 year old daughter asked to play with my iPod Touch. I didn't have it with me cause it has a cracked screen that I'm in the middle of fixing so I thought I would hand her my Droid to play with. I had put a couple of games and "painting" apps on one of the homepages that I designated for her, but after only a couple of minutes, she didn't like it. Are there any good games/drawing/painting apps out there for kids? On the iPod she had games like "Anisays" (spell the animal on the screen with drag and drop tiles and it makes a sound), "Animatch" (like memory,flip tiles to find a match and it makes a sound), and several decent drawing/painting apps that had pull out drawers where you could change colors or pencil size. Most of the stuff in the free area of the market seems kinda cheezy and with terrible graphics.
I just got the Motorola Droid a month ago and I cant help but think that soon if not already the processor inside it will be obsolete and start to not be strong enough for future apps/games and/or Android updates. What do you guys think?
I listen to MP3's with headphones quite often while @ the golf range about 2-3 times a week. I just plug in a random non OEM 3.5 MM earbud headphones (like the white apple one lol ), but sometimes more often than not the eris goes buggy and starts fast forwarding through songs / skipping songs / playing at a faster rate. It seems to this when you press or slightly wiggle the 3.5 MM jack on top, so when it's in my pocket i 'accidently' hit it sometimes. Now i dont know if touching the jack is why it's doing this but that is just theory/conclusion. Does anyone get this problem (people who use headphones while playing sports or having the phone in their pockets?) and/or does anyone know why it happens or how to fix it?
- Another question i have is an accessory question but ill go ahead and ask it here to kill two birds with one stone. Can anyone suggest a good OEM earbud headphone for the Eris? I saw some that aren't actualy 3.5 MM jacks but plug into the Mini-USB port on the bottom, I wonder what kind of headphones came with some people's eris'.
You ever notice that their aren't any I don't want to say good but I guess big games on the android market. Like there are HUGE games on the iphone like my friend has Sims on his iphone now if you ever played that game you know its a big game. Also why do so many companies make apps for iphone only like there is a call of duty nazi zombie game on the iphone. Or like game fly has made an app only for iphone as much as I love android this just bothers the crap out of me!
I have a blackberry tour and use podtrapper to download and play all my podcasts. With this app I'm able to listen to podcasts with my bluetooth headset. This is a great feature and I'm wondering will the droid allow music/podcasts to be played over bluetooth? While I'm at work I leave in my headset and nobody knows I am listening to my podcasts.
I've got an annoying issue when listening to music on my Droid. During any song, any album, at any time, the music will skip. Like the old CD players did when they were jiggled around, etc. I've tried it in every situation possible. It skips in every music app, any headphone or AUX cable, wether its being charged OR not. I thought it may be happening due to network things like receiving a text, or when Google syncs, but I don't think that's it. One of the reasons I got the Droid was for it to replace my iPod, but I can't even listen to music! This happened before 2.1, after, and even when I was ROM'd and rooted.
Alright guys so i got a new droid today and i love it. i also got a $25 gift card from my boss to walmart and was wondering if anyone knows some decent headphones, just for listening to music etc, that i could get? has to be from walmart and preferably in 25 dollar range.
Anyone else notice while listening to pandora on their eris that the headphone volume is not that loud? like compared to an ipod... I have not tried downloading music to the SD card yet so i can only test with pandora...
My Motorola Droid will turn on, but it will not go to my home. It will just stay on the start up screen (black background with white logo in the center).
Now this didn't happen until i decided i wanted the CyanogenMod on my phone. I used this tutorial: Full Update Guide - Motorola Droid - CyanogenMod Wiki.
So I started with the first step and I installed SPRecovery succesfully using RSDLite, but when it rebooted it wouldn't get to the home screen. Then on RSDLite it said "REBOOT MANUALLY". I waited longer to make sure it wouldn't turn on eventually but it didn't. I finally disconnected it and tried various things... to try and get it back to normal. Did i brick it? also my phone was already rooted.
Hey guys do any of you notice a hiss while listening to music/podcasts through bluetooth stereo headphones? I have tried a couple different headsets and all of them have a very noticeable hiss coming through.
I have two sources of audio: the music player and Doggcatcher for podcasts. Whenever I listen to a track in the music player and then stop listening, it remembers and keeps it "ready". Then I go and listen to a podcast and, again, the last thing played remains ready to play at any point. So, here is the problem. When I go to listen to music, I can get into the music player and hit play, no problem. But, the first time I use the inline remote to pause and then play, that "play" command turns on the podcast player as well and BOTH start playing, music and podcast.
Oddly, when I am just in Doggcatcher and play a podcast, the inline remote will not automatically start the music player. Is there a way to make sure Doggcatcher will not start when I want to listen to the music player? I suppose I could load up Google Listen and see what would happen with that program instead.
I don't know if this is just a cell phone thing because my last phone on Sprint did it too. But when I call in to my voice mail and hear the female voice of the menu system, she is very scratchy. It doesn't matter what volume level I am at either, it's almost as if the sound quality of the VM system is just extremely poor.When I use my Droid speaker for other things I don't hear this at all. I watched several movie trailers in high quality on YouTube and turned the volume to max and it was as clear (and loud) as I could ever hope.So has anyone else noticed this?I wonder why this occurs?
Seeing as Motorola is locking down the Motorola Droid X and likely the Droid 2, what should I replace my Moto Droid with? I've been totally happy with the phone to the extent that I tell people it's the coolest thing I've ever owned in my entire life... that's 51 years for you youngsters. I'm of course on Verizon and will stay with Verizon. I've paid zero attention to any phones other than the Moto Droids. Alas, lockdown is not acceptable. So now I have to go through the whole learning process all over again.
I id a search, and the results were wide, varied and not to my point, so no I am asking the veterans.I would like to know how to initiate a text message on my Motorola droid. If I click the messaging icon on my home screen it takes me to gmail. if i open my phone and contacts, i get the email address and phone number displayed only, no option to text the desired contact.the only thing i seem to grasp is the call log. from there i can text or call again. seems like i can only text from call log, but if i have no call to tor from them in my log, and i want to text them, i do not know how. is there a good tutorial for texting and contacts? sorry if it seems like a dumb question, i just got my droid a couple hours ago. i am stokes because it was a sweet deal and i am not due to upgrade from my lame omnia for awhile. but i need to know how to text and initiate calls instead of just emailing everyone. the phone is sick sweet though.
