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!

HTC Incredible :: Filter Spam On Phone / Keyword Block Of These Ads?

Jun 1, 2010

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?

HTC Droid Eris :: Need Content Filter Apps For Phone

Sep 24, 2010

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.

Android :: Why Would Hulu Block Mobile Devices?

Aug 4, 2010

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?

Android :: Need App To Block Popups In Browser?

Sep 1, 2010

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.

Android :: Implement A Secure Application To Block Internet On Droid In Roaming?

Apr 23, 2010

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?

Android :: Internet Data Request Done Via Content Provider?

HTC EVO 4G :: Internet Browsers / Capability In Displaying Certain Content On Web Pages

Jun 9, 2010

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?

Intent { act=android.intent.action.VIEW cat=[android.intent.category.BROWSABLE] dat=http://listen.di.fm/public3/oldschoolhouse.pls cmp=com.android.browser/.BrowserActivity }

Android :: Browser Application To Open And Display Content From Menu

Jul 13, 2009

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 am currently unable to browse the internet on any browser on my phone, other apps that access the internet work fine. I've removed a few apps that I updated this morning, such as juice defender, the rest were just games from what I can see. Is there a way to see when apps were last updated, obviously last resort is a full wipe but don't really want to do that if I can get away with it.

Anyone else seen this or know how to stop it occurring?

Android :: Register To Internet Browser URL Change Events

Mar 20, 2010

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.

Motorola Droid :: Internet Browser Closes Consistently / Way To Fix?

Jul 26, 2010

I've had an issue w/ my Internet browser closing on me for quite a while. It just closes down to where ever I was before the Internet was launched, w/o a "force close" message box. This has happened across many diff ROMs, many diff browsers, and many diff kernels. Hell, it's been happening since at least 2.1 and perhaps 2.0.1. I've tried clearing caches, wifi, lowering the kernel MHz, yet the issues still persist. Sometimes it happens instantaneously upon opening, sometimes it waits till I'm enjoying surfing away from my pc.

Android :: Way To Get Virtual Device's Browser Connected Internet?

Instead, I get the dialog box: Data Connectivity Problem 'The server failed to communicate. Try again later.' and the browser displays 'Web page not available'.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Internet Is Working From The Browser But Not From The Applications

Oct 10, 2010

I've recently bought the Xperia X10 mini handset and since it was unable to download the settings from my service provider, I had to manually do the APN setup.

However, I was successful getting the internet from my handset browser but not from the applications like Email, Gmail, GTalk, Sony Ericsson Sync, and Market. I've got the notification icon for EDGE data transmission and is being indicated when accessed from the browser but not from the applications.

Do I need to do any other setting in order to access the internet from the applications? Can someone please help me setting up?

HTC Desire :: Connected To 3g - H - But Will Not Sync Email Or Allow Internet Browser - Data Connectivity Problem

Oct 8, 2010

The H symbol is displayed at the top of the screen and the arrows occasionally flash. The 'up arrow' flashes more often than the 'down arrow'. I have at least 2-4 bars reception.

However when I try to browse there is a 'data connectivity problem' and websites will not load. None of my apps, gmail, facebook etc will sync.

I am on t-mobile.

Fixes I have tried:

- turn on/off
- APN settings check
- Airplane mode

Have spent hours looking at other 3g threads, but have not found an identical problem. My phone says im connected to 3g ('H'), but will not update email or let me access websites on the browser.

Android :: Switching Content Providers For Same Content URI

Aug 12, 2009

This may seem like a stupid question but I need to be sure. I was wondering if it was possible to pro-grammatically change the Content Provider used when making a query given a Content URI. The reason being I need to know if it's possible to force the Calendar/Contacts applications to read from a different database via a different Content Provider temporarily while my application is running, so that I can reuse those applications to display my own data. Since the Content URI s are hard coded in each of these applications the only way it might be possible is if we could somehow temporarily change the Content Provider used for a given URI. I know this probably isn't possible, I just need to show it isn't. Could someone confirm this can't be done?

Android : Content Provider - No Link Between Content Provider And Its CONTENT_URI Declared In Another Class

Mar 1, 2010

I am having a hard time understanding content providers. In the notepad example and others, the content provider never even declares its CONTENT_URI anywhere inside itself, yet the docs say to publicly declare this. It's declared in a different class. So when an activity queries a content provider with a CONTENT_URI, how does Android know which one I want. I see no link between a content provider and its CONTENT_URI declared in another class.

I also don't how to think about intents and content providers. I know that you don't call an intent on a content provider. But an activity queries a content provider without an intent, and an activity has a mimetype attribute in the manifest that would seem to tie it to a content provider.

HTC Desire :: T Mobile Faster Internet Speed Settings / What Is Your Internet Speeds?

Jul 7, 2010

Right basically you can find the UK T mobile internet settings on the T mobile website. On the Speed Test app, the highest speeds I get are 1.8m/bs downloads and around 500kpbs upload. However, those were at off peak times at night etc (probably when nobody is using the net).Generally I get anything from 0.3 m/bs to 0.9 m/bs though. Lately I've been experiencing some inconsistent internet speeds and reconnection attempts so for I've gone back to the default settings. Tbh though I'm not sure if it makes much difference.
