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?

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?

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).

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!

General :: Internet Browser Which Keeps Pages Loaded

Feb 4, 2012

I've been trying several browsers and only Miren browser had the feature I need. I mean then I loaded pages stays loaded until I close the tabs/browser manualy.

All the other browsers keeps reloading pages then I don't need them to reload. For example - open some website, go to other app, then turn off mobile network and wifi, then go back to internet browser and it's only blank page (or an error page).

Recently I have flashed ICS ROM and now Miren browser FC sometimes.. I guess it's because of Miren browser is no longer supported and some ICS incompatabilities or ROM problems..

So any other browser which doesn't reload pages when apps being switched back and forth? Or way to keep all browser loaded tabs (in cache(?)) so it don't need to reload so much?

General :: How To Install APK From SD Card Using Internet Browser

Jun 6, 2012

What if you need to install an apk from sdcard but you don't have a file manager installed yet.And to make things worse you don't have internet access to download it from the market!Here's what you need to do:

1. Put the apk file in the main directory of your sdcard. Rename it to something very short for easy typing. In this example, I will use "fm.apk".

2. Boot your device. Goto Security Settings and check "Unknown Sources".

3. Open your internet browser. In the address bar type "file:///sdcard/<filename>.apk". (Without the double quotes of course).In our example above it should look like this: file:///sdcard/fm.apk

4. Press "Go". That's it! Installation started!

Also the devices are getting IP via DHCP. The problem is that i am able to access web site via browser but when i try from the application, its showing i don't have internet connection. There is no proxy configured in this network. There is an IP filtering in the router which filters the IPs starting with a particular series. But the web site and the application which i am trying to use are supposed to use this IP series.

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?

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.
