Android :: Programmatically Clear Browser Cache - History

Sep 22, 2010

During my activity I'm sending an intent to the browser in order to display a webpage :

Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("http://ww.mywebpage.com"); startActivity(i);

I need to make sure that before sending the intent the browser cache and history are cleared so that the page get loaded from server directly and not from phone.

So far I've found the 2 following but I'm not sure they are used correctly :

Browser.clearHistory(getContentResolver());
Browser.clearSearches(getContentResolver());

Also with that cache is not cleared.

Android :: Clear Maps History Programmatically?

Nov 19, 2010

I want to programmatically clear the history of the android maps (and navigation) application.

I know there is a way to clear the browser history via Browser.clearSearches(getContentResolver());

And the corresponding permission: com.android.browser.permission.WRITE_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS
and this works fine (2.2.).

I couldn't find any way to clear the Maps-History though. Clearing the google/history online doesn't help either.

There are some apps in the market that promote to do that, so there must be an API for it, but i really couldn't find it yet.

I also messed around a bit with CLEAR_APP_CACHE and CLEAR_APP_USER_DATA but seems like they are signed/root-only permissions and delte too much anyways.

Android : Browser Cache - Previous History In Order To Save Internal Phone Memory

Nov 28, 2008

There are a couple of options within the browser I didn't find until after searching for it, so I thought I would share it with the rest of the community in order to help out.

-Everyone should clear the browser cache and previous history in order to save internal phone memory. To do this go to BROWSER press the MENU button and press MORE. There should be a list of things in there but what you should be interested in is the last item which is SETTINGS. From there in privacy settings there will be options to clear both cache and history.

- Another little tip I wanted to share was viewing webpages in landscape mode without opening your keyboard. To do this simply press the MENU button from within the BROWSER and go down to FLIP ORIENTATION. You should realize tho by doing this you browser will continue to be in landscape the next time it's used. In order to return it to it's normal portrait mode just follow these steps once again.

-There are a number of other things you can mess around with or find with the MENU button within the browser so just take a look at it yourself even if you don't want to do any of these tips.

Android :: Cant Clear Cache On Some Apps

Apr 27, 2010

I have a couple apps I have noticed when I open a file it must cache the file internally, but gives me no way to clear. For example Zumodrive and repligo reader both will show 20+mb in my settings, but clear cache is greyed out and shows 0mb. However when I delete these apps and reinstall them, I get all that internal memory back. I am running a rooted Nexus One.

Android : Way To Clear Cache On All Apps?

Feb 14, 2010

I searched and found many posts regarding clearing cache. But didn't find this answer. Is there a way to clear cache on all apps at once? I went through the settings/applications/manage apps, and checked and cleared cache on many, but this is real tedious, but seemed to give great results. Phone feels much faster. (NOT ROOTED) Psychological? Dunno, but question still stands, does anyone know an easy way to do this? Additionally, is there any risk of clearing cache from any apps?

Android : How To Clear History When Navigating Between Activities?

Nov 17, 2009

I have 3 Activities that my user continuously is looping through. When user is back to the main screen I need to terminate previous history so user cannot hit back button and end up on screen #2, what would be a good way to do something like that? To reiterate - say I don't know or predict the path which leads me to the original view. But once I load it I want to clear history that led user to that view. In 2.0 it's possible with overwriting Activity#onBackPressed but I need something like that in 1.6

Does anyone know how to clear defaults of my own app by code.I know that a user can always go to Manage Applications, find my app and click the button there to clear previously assigned default actions. But for most users this isn't intuitive at all. I would like to offer my customers a solution to clear defaults within my own app if they don't like to use my app as a replacement for a specific action anymore.

HTC Desire :: Where To Get Cache Clear Application?

Apr 27, 2010

We've had our desire's for a few weeks now and was just wondering what the phones performance is like for you guys/gals? you've all put on apps that you want and music and videos etc., has this affected the phone in anyway? Does it still run like it did out of the box or do you experience lag or other faults? Interested what you have to say.

The only gripe that I have is it is sometimes slow to access the market and takes a few seconds to load the page when scrolling down and I've got a stutter when I access an app to read reviews. Other than that it still runs smooth, I've got music, videos, apps, widgets and voice to text on mine and is easily the best phone I've ever had. Has anybody got a cache cleaner app, I can only find one for rooted phones?

HTC Incredible : Need To Clear SD Card Cache

Oct 24, 2010

so I was jokin around with my friend at a bar and we started looking up naughty pictures with a free pron program that I found on the market. We were comparing the people in the bar to the people in the photos and we found some hilarious matches. Anyway, that was last Thursday. Now I see that the pictures that were pulled up on my phone are now easily viewable by merely trying to attach a picture to a text message or an email. Basically, if anyone looks at my phone and tries to see my pictures or something they will see these stupid pictures. The phone says these pictures are saved in the SD Card Cache. How can I clear this cache? I've unmounted the card, twice. No go. I've uninstalled the horrible program (it was free and you get what you pay for, I guess). I needs me some help! I've been perusing the interwebs looking for help and this forum seemed like the most active place right now.

HTC EVO 4G :: Want To Clear EMAIL History?

Aug 20, 2010

I was composing an email and typed "jon" for my brother, but it brought up this dude who I used to work with and it almost inserted his email address. I deleted that guy from my EVO and it shows up as "HISTORY". I NEVER want to send an email to that person, so I DO NOT want the EVO to suggest his name from some "history" file. I have looked around but do not know how to clear out the email history list. Can someone please let me know how to do that? Sending an accidental email to folks that I have erased from my EVO would be not good.
