Android :: Internet Filter To Block Any Mature Content From Devices Browser?
May 22, 2010
I just got my HTC Desire the other day and I'm looking for a family friendly Internet filter (aka. Web protection, Net safety, Internet security) app for my phone that will block any mature content from the devices browser. At the moment I can't find anything- but I know these forums are the best on the web- so, if a net family filter android app exists, I know someone on here will be able to tell me about it!
I have a few different email accounts and on my PC I have most of the spam under control by a junk mail filter that catches almost all of what the ISP's filter doesn't. On the Incredible, however, those ads still get through and it's annoying of course. If I could just even get rid of the Viagra ads, I'd be happy, because there wouldn't be much spam left if they were gone. I figure there has to be a way to do a keyword block of these ads but I just can't figure this out on here. Any ideas?
Anyone know of any apps that will allow a parent to set a content filter on the Eris so a kid can't access adult themed websites (porn etc)? The subject came up at work and it sounded like something worth looking in to, but the best I could find was a content filter service from Verizon (for free) but it seems that it also prevents Google Navigator, Facebook and YouTube from working properly (they all load just fine, but crazy error codes come up which prevent you from getting any further). Also of note: this only works when using the 3G service, as WiFi has no problems accessing Nav, FB and YT.
I don't see the logic behind this. The more people who watch hulu means more people who are looking at ads. And the more people who look at ads, the more money hulu makes. The only logic I could see behind this is that a Hulu Plus app is coming to the Android market, but I haven't heard anything about that.What's your take on this?
I am developing an application which uses Internet.....say a facebook application.....but i want to filter the Internet data...i.e i want to show only sum part of the information i receive but not the rest....say i dont want to show the friendlist but i only want to show the wall of the facebook. i dont want to create a new website i directly want to filter it through the android application.
Google decided to remove all adblocking software from play store, as they are in conflict with market rules. Where can we find those adblock softwares from now on? there are boud to be some grammar errors, since I haven't had any practise in months...
Some of the sites I visit have what I believe to be flash overlays on them. They are usually things like "tell us about your experience on our site" or the like. Not really ads, but they often don't scale right and jump off the screen when I zoom in to dismiss them. Is there an app that can block these, without disabling flash? WebMD is an example of a site that does this, after you load a few of their pages. Theirs stays put, but is an example of the feature.
I am riding solo on my my monthly free Internet allowance. I get 500mb n Ive only got 36mb left for the rest of the month! So basically i wanna freeze all Internet access, except through the browser and my email (which updates every hour). Is it possible to block all other Internet access?
I'm looking for an application that is hard to find. I want an application to block the internet, but only for some applications, for example leaving the WhatsApp with access to receive real-time notifications.
I need to develop an application that will check whether the phone is in roaming. If it's in roaming then the application should block internet for all applications except several from white list. In non-roaming mode it should allow all requests. There should be no way for user to kill or suspend the application or turn internet on. I'm not familiar with android much so I really don't know whether it possible to implement without modification of OS. Is there any way to do this?
How could I create a ContentProvider where the data is fetch from the internet. As the data is parsed maybe allow the requesting client know the download progress and results so that they are displayed as it's downloaded. My idea is to share this data across other apps. I'm not sure if a ContentProvider would be the solution?
I just watched this video and the guy giving the presentation plugged the EVO into the tv while streaming a video off Youtube. It was almost instantaneous. I just wish he wouldn't unplugged it before he went back to the Home page. Do this sort of confirm we will be able to surf the web and do other stuff while connected to the tv?
Here's what I'm attempting to do. I have a menu and when a user selects a particular option in the menu I want the browser application to open and display the web page. However, I cannot seem to do this. My application uses a TabWidget to display its content (which works perefectly) but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to open a link into the browser. I have tried adding a WebView to the TabWidget (but when I request it from the view by findViewById(...) I get a null.
I've also tried creating a separate view and performing a setContentView(...) and then I get an exception. I've also tried using an intent I've seen demonstrated on this group. It seems like this should be fairly easy, but I must be missing anything. I've looked at the sample apps as well as the Apps-for- android samples and have followed them to the T, yet still to no avail I cannot get the browser to open (or anything like that).
I was wondering about internet browsers and their capability in displaying certain content on web pages. I go back and forth between the stock internet browser that came with the Evo and Xscope Browser. I noticed two things, on that it doesn't display animation on GIFs. I wanted to know, is there a plug-in one can download or a browser that would run the animation on the page? The reason I ask is because right now I can�t tell the difference between a JPEG and GIF on the page when it loads up. Its only when I decide to download it that it displays the extension. My second question is about playing Quicktime files on trailer websites that run QT. I can�t play these back. Is there a plug-in or browser that I can use to play those videos on my Evo?
Just wondering if now that we have full flash, if there is a "best browser to use" I have been using skyfire and it seems slow and choppy and sometimes things dont even load. Is there a better browser or any other advice you could give me?
The best feature of ICS? Google is going to make the Chrome Browser the standard browser on Ice Cream Sandwich. It's going to have a different interface obviously but it's going to be indistinguishable from the desktop browser as a user agent.
That means Hulu, ABC.com, Fox.com are all going to be usable on the Google TV, Android tablets and ICS phones!
How I can connect to internet from android emulator browser. From the discussion I found that I need to do some proxy settings for this . What are those settings ? Here the details of my development environment.
Eclipse. eclipse-SDK-3.4.2-win32 Android:android-sdk-windows-1.1_r1 OS:Windows vista 32 bit Internet connection: Broadband connection from some ISP
I tried to register to Internet browser URL changes but no succes so far, I tried different ways:
1. Start the browser as intent, for example: Intent myIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("http:// m.cnn.com/")); myContext.startActivity(myIntent); this.registerReceiver(intentReceiver, intentFilter);
2. Start browser using: myWebView.setWebChromeClient(..) Then override each and every onXYZ method ...
Now, I know I can start using: myWebView.setWebViewClient(..) and then override shouldOverrideUrlLoading(..), but the WebViewClient is way too simple internet browser, and would require me tons of additions to make it anything close to the WebChromeClient.
