Android :: Set Or Change Default Location For Downloading Apps
Jan 3, 2010
I was wondering is there any way to set or change the default location for downloading apps to either my phone or SD card? .. My Palm centro had the option to either download to either the phone or SD card.. I was wondering if the Droid has the same option possibilities. Also Is there any way to transfer apps or programs currently stored on the phone to the SD card?
We've recently moved to TN and my Incredible still thinks I'm in VA. All apps, like weather, Poynt, etc., show my old address, even when GPS is turned on. There must be some setting on the phone doing this, but I sure can't find it.
its possible to change the location of screen shots in ICS and if so, how? Ive dug around to no avail. I tried switching the camera option to go from internal to external but that only did it for the camera roll, not screen shots.
I moved to a different town after buying my Eris. I changed my service address at verizon.com but my phone keeps showing my old town as it's default location on the clock widget and in other apps. I know the clock widget has a change city setting, but my small town doesn't show up in their cities database. Is there any way to change the default home location of my phone?
I'm talking about the default clock/weather widget that is on the home screen...
Is it possible to make it so the widget shows weather info for a user-specified location? I was able to add an additional location once inside the HTC Weather app (by scrolling down), but I have had no luck finding anywhere to change the location that appears on the actual home screen.
It wouldn't be such a problem since it does correctly display my location (New York), but it is WAY off in terms of weather. For example, the widget is showing 72 degrees when it's actually 85. That's a HUGE difference and it's bothering me a lot.
I'm assuming it is pulling weather data from somewhere in upstate NY and not from NYC (where I am)? The manual entry I added is showing correct info, but it's very annoying having incorrect data showing up on the home screen and having to click into the widget and then scroll down to get the actual info.
when i install app from droid market, are they install to the phone or the SD card. if to the phone, do i have the option to put them to the SD card? when i connect the x10 to my computer via the USB cable, i don't seem to see the apps. where, which folder rather, do they reside?
I'm trying to set up Dropbox on my phone in order to automate some actions, but I'm having trouble with one step. Primarily, I'd like for Dropbox to be main download location for files from Dolphin, Steel, and Browser. I can't find an easy way to make this happen, and it would be awesome if I could get it to work out.
I have multiple gmail addresses set up on my phone through the gmail app.However, when I use any HTC app (People,Gallery)and try to send an email through these apps (I believe it directs me to the HTC mail app), I can only send emails from one of my addresses (which is not my primary address).Does anyone know of a way to switch primary email addresses for HTC apps or how to at least switch on the fly between different addresses when sending emails launched from other HTC apps (People, Gallery, etc.).
I was using the facebook app and clicked a youtube video link and decided to make youtube the default app to launch for this specific action. However, I later decided that I want it to launch the link in a browser (so I can read comments) instead of playing instantly after clicking the link.
I tried "Clear defaults" under settings>applications>manage applications but there is no settings for youtube. I tried to clear defaults for facebook and my browser, and tried reinstalling the facebook app but no luck.
What I'm trying to do is this: I want my application to download an image from the Internet and save it to the phone's internal memory in a location that is private to the application. If there is no image available for the list item (i.e. it can't be found on the Internet), I want a default placeholder image to display. This is the image that I have defined in my list_item_row.xml file as the default.
In my ListActivity file, I am calling an instance of a CustomCursorAdapter class I have written. It is in CustomCursorAdapter where I am iterating through all the list items and defining what content needs to be mapped to the views, including the image file by trying to read it from internal memory.
I've seen several questions on this subject, but the examples either are specific to external phone memory (e.g. SDCard), involve saving strings instead of images, or involve using Bitmap.CompressFormat to reduce the resolution of the file (which is unnecessary in my case, as these images will be small thumbnails of already-small resolution). Trying to piece together code from each example has been difficult, hence my asking about my specific example.
At the moment, I believe I've written valid code, but no image is displaying for my list items, including the default placeholder image. I don't know if the problem is being caused by invalid download/save code, or invalid read code - it doesn't help that I don't know how to check internal memory to see if the image exists.Anyways, here's my code...
today i was trying to open my old workspace projects by Eclipse but the old projects used old SDK path n so when i try to change my SDK location the eclipse not allow me tho submit my new location how i can solve this problem
By default,the android system's default location is US and language is en. but i want to set the default location to other country.so, the users will see their mother language when the first time start up android.
i have tried to modify the code(/dalvik/libcore/luni/src/main/java/java/util/Locale.java),changed the locale's default value.but,no use.
How to set the default location?
I want to make an android image,then burn it to device,when the android start up the first time, i want it's os language is not english but other language.
Is there any way to change the default location of R.java file which is getting created in "gen" folder? By default R.Java will get created in gen folder under the package (of the application) directory. I have a common code (with UI) which has to go with different applications with different package names/branding. When ever I change the package name in manifest file, R.java will created inside that package so I have to change the import statement in all the files with the new location of R. How I can avoid it? Also is there is any provision to have two or more R files in one application?
I recently downloaded Panda Home and the iPad theme.I am happy with the design! Part of why I wanted to change the default was to have more Home screens so I could scroll horizontally to view my apps (like the iPhone; I am not trying to be like the iPhone.I just do appreciate certain design factors!).Is there a way to change the default location of the apps to the various Home pages? Or do I have to manually shift each one? For some reason, I find the vertical tray not as helpful or easy to access, although now that I can jump to apps by letter, that does make it better.
From my application i can able to download the files from the internet. but the files are downloaded to sdcard/downloads directory by default. Is it possible to change this location so that user can give the path to save the file?? Is it possible to save the files in internal memory?
Wasn't sure exactly how to ask this, but here we go So, for example, I installed "Dialer One", a dialer replacement.So whenever I hit the "Phone" button, it asks how I want to complete the action. Using Dialer One, or Phone. And it gives me the option to "Use by default for this action".So, lets say I want to use Dialer One by default, but then I change my mind. How do I set it back to the default Phone.Obviously, this question applies to more than just the phone app. After writing all that I think the simple way to ask my question is- I really just want to know how to undo the 'use by default for this action' choices I may make in the future.
How do I make the SD card the default location for saving things like video and photos? It's a lot bigger than the phone's own storage, but it seems like the only way to put anything there is to move it manually.
Many people think that the pictures taken from the phone camera are stored in internal storage and think they are losing internal memory because of taking picture bit the pictures you take is stored on sd card
Images are stored insdcardDCIMcamera
so dont worry take pictures
instal link 2 sd and wipe all cache and dalvik-cache to free up 5-15mb
Method to allow myself to install apps and games to my external 32gb external sd card and set this as my default install location as my internal storage is small and i always have problems with available space . I have been told this can be done on adb on computer with running special commands to change default install location. Is this true ? Will I need to root and use an app which is user friendly for this? I have a samsung galaxy s4 mini gt i9105 unrooted.
I'm trying to find the font Simple Text uses and is listed as Default 04. I have Searched my phone for all .ttf files and even emailed the developer (no response). Where this font is on the phone or what its name is? Or just where I can download it?
not sure if this is the right forum for this but i just switched from droid incredible to droid x. it is rooted running 2.2. i downloaded some apps from the market no problem, but now whenever i try it downloads to 100% and then that's it, it doesn't bother trying to install. installing an application through astro works though. i ahve no clue what's going on, rebooted a couple times already.
