we can clean some apps that we dont use going to playstore/myapss/all.
but if you try remove an app from the list (not the 1st app preferably), and install again that app you will notice the position on the list is the same. So its impossible delete apps history, google always remember what apps you have ever installed with your account?
I don't think this is an issue specific to my phone model. When I go into the Android Market (or Play Store) and I look at my apps it previously showed purchased apps but now it shows all the apps I've ever installed. If I want to install an app I purchased previously I have to search through all the hundreds of apps I have ever installed!
I've tried to find a resolution via Google but I keep getting results showing how to clear market search history.
Like I said, previously before I upgraded to ICS the market only showed installed apps and purchased apps that I haven't installed, now it shows every app I have ever installed and it seems to include apps I installed on my android tablet!
New feature of ICS, "Recent Apps with thumbnails" is a privacy concern for me. As it shows my personal text messages in the thumbnail to people whom i handover my device. I have already locked message application but still ICS is able to capture a screenshot of it and displays it in Recent App history. Is there a way to bypass an application from Recent apps history?
I have several apps, paid and free, on my phone that I currently don't use. I could uninstall them, but I'd like to have them at hand in case I decide to use them again, and would rather not have to write them down or search for them again. Many of them additionally load automatically and have no options to turn that off, so I end up with a good 100M of RAM wasted.
I know paid apps will list as purchased in the market, er, Google Play, so I could easily find them again if I uninstall.
Is there any way to freeze apps so they don't autorun on my phone
I've been trying for some time to install apps to SD on my Galaxy S3 using apps such as link2SD etc but have had little to no success. I've heard that some custom ROMs allow you to do this without additional software. Since I was planning on ditching the stock ROM in favour of something with better performance and most importantly better battery life I've been looking for a ROM to suit my needs. However most ROM download sites seem to have little information regarding this and I am yet to find a ROM with this capability. Any ROMs that can do this?
Am using Galexy-S3 International With CyanogenMod 10.1 with out Google Apps ( with out Any google Apps , No gmail is configured as well). i wanted to install some applications which i have downladed apk files from playstore.but when am trying to install the programs are not getting installed ( May be bcoz i dont have a google account & playstore).
I installed the ViperOne yesterday and so far I've been enjoying it, however I'm getting random apps installing. They won't be installed but will show as an update in the Google Play Store, they'll automatically "update" when really their just installing.
These apps include:
Flashlight Small App Free (by Renaud Aste) Home Anywhere (by amanon) People Small App (by Renaud Aste) Small Phone (by Andre Macareno) Unit Converter Small App (by Sony Mobile Communications) Currency Converter Small App (by Sony Mobile Communications)
EDIT: Upon further looking they are actually on my phone and when they say their updating they actually are. They look like stock apps (I can't remove them from Settings -> Applications)
Some of the apps appear to be from Sony which would make sense if I had a Sony device, but I don't. It's a HTC One (M7)
I'd like to flash a new rom, is there any way to backup all my installed apps (including the ones I paid for) so that after I flash the rom, I can get them back? I don't mind if I lose their settings, I just don't want to have to go back to the Market and manually download each one again.
How do you uninstall unwanted apps that were there when i got my optimus v. They use up unnecessary space on my phone and some of them run in the background so i just want to get rid of them but you cant uninstall them in the applications menu?
I recently changed my ROM, and as soon as done, started having lots of problems installing apps:
* the play store on my computer would report applications not available for my device, even though I had downloaded and installed them before
* the search in the phone play store application could not find those apps, and when given a direct link would show them as incompatible
* modded version of vending.apk failed to download with the following error: "app name" could not be downloaded due to an error. (942)
* trying to install the backed up apk manually gave me the error "Application not installed"
* restoring titanium backup failed and left the restore process hanging
* manually copying the apk to /system/app/ and fixing the permissions still did not show the app
I tried many things, different roms, different ril, different mods of Vending.apk and GoogleServicesFramework.apk, clearing data and cache, deleting files in .android_secure, etc, nothing worked. Searching the forum brought up many posts about other people with the same problem, but no working solution.
Finally, I found the solution: I was using the wrong gapps package!The one I had flashed was for 2.3.2, my previous rom, whereas the new one was based on 2.3.7. It did not occur to me, that there could be enough changes to break market functionality, since I was sticking to gingerbread.
If you have the same problem, head to [URL] ..... and pay close attention to the table matching the right google apps package to your android version. Download it, and flash through recovery.
When I load a new ROM and need to reinstall my apps there are usually a couple I don't want to install. Is there anyway to remove them from the "Not Installed" under "My Apps"? It seems like since I once downloaded and installed an app, it will always be there.
If I can't remove them, then I can't use the bulk install option and have to manually start all the installs.
I've installed some apps (weather channel, Astrid tasks and others) for which I'm sure there's a widget, but for some reason, from homescreen/menu/add/widget, they do not appear. In fact, I'm stuck with the initial list of widgets available and can't see anything new there. (I'm still on GB, not ICS)
Just installed first non HTC based ROM (CM10). It doesn't ask to sign in with gmail and then doesn't sync contacts and apps. I tried putting in my gmail account where it asked for my email and yet no contacts or apps.
My cell phone is a LG Optimus Hub E510... i have instaled the Cyanogen 7.0 to substitute my Android 2.3.4 that was in my cell phone... but after i've instaled the Cyanogem the apps and games have disappear... facebook, whatsapp and other... i tried to install the apps again but my cell sends a message that they're already instaled... what can i do to my apps appear again?
Sometimes I install an app, then decide I don't want it installed at the time but still would like to keep track of it. So ideally I would like to add it to the wish list after I have had it uninstalled.
This seems not possible, the playstore won't let you add an app to your wish list after it has already been installed.
When I install an app via apk file (because let's say the app is not yet available in Play but the apk was leaked), will I be able to get updates through Play once it has arrived there? Or will I have to reinstall the app from the Play Store and loose all app-related data (for example game states...)?
The problem is maintaining apps that were NOT installed from the Market, but from .apk files scattered in various directories on the SD card. What I need is a tool that combines the functionality of an app manager like Easy Installer together with details of all currently-installed apps: In a single big list sorted by app name, I'd like to see the installed version (if any), plus every available .apk file and the version it contains. That would make it SO much easier to know if I need to update installed apps with a newer version, and to delete multiple .apk files of outdated versions.
I've seen lots of apps (including the Apps menu built into Android Settings) to view the installed apps and their version info -- and also lots of apps to scan the whole SD card for .apk files and display the actual app info (name, version, etc.) vs. just the filenames. What's missing is an easy way to compare all these.
I have recently purchased an unlocked HTC Desire. As you may or may not know, here in Australia the only carrier of the Desire is Telstra. However I use 3 mobile so that's the reason I purchased an unlocked device.
My problem is that my phone has about a dozen or more apps which are installed by Telstra and uninstallable. Most of them are 100% useless because I'm not even on their network and I'd like them out of my applications list.
I've had a read around and I saw something about being able to remove them by deleting the file and then uninstalling them using a command prompt program.
Would anyone please be able to give me detailed instructions on how to do this because I'm not sure how to find the system/apps folder and I'm also not sure on how to get the command prompt thing to work.
