General :: Unwanted App Appearing In Apps?

Jan 3, 2012

A random app just appeared in My Apps in the Android Market app.

There is no uninstall button, nor can I find it in /system/app or /data/app. It does not appear in Titanium Backup either.

It is called karoges, by cloudnine.

I am worried if this is some kind of malware.

Running 2.3.6 Gingerbread on Samsung Galaxy S 4G. Valhalla Final ROM.

General :: Stopping Unwanted Apps From Automatically Starting?

May 8, 2012

I have an Acer A100 tablet that I've upgraded to ICS (the upgrade went very smoothly, by the way). But under both ICS and the original Honeycomb, the Android OS has an annoying habit of starting a bunch of apps automatically. Facebook, Google Maps, media players and a whole host of apps that I do NOT want to start all by themselves. I found an "Advanced Task Manager" that will check every 5 minutes and kill unwanted apps automatically. But every time I check it there are still half a dozen apps running in the background that I don't want.

If it were just one or two apps, I would simply uninstall them. But it seems like half the factory apps are intent on restarting themselves no matter how many times they're turned off. My Acer has a very small battery, and I suspect I'd get much better battery life if it would only run the apps that I start manually.

Other than email and the system update manager, I really don't want any apps running in the background. And when I turn an app off, I want it to stay off until I restart it. Is there a way to edit the list of programs that start automatically? Do they all have to be disabled individually? I've checked a few of the apps, and don't see any way to disable the "automatic log-in", "check for new data" or whatever each program might call it's annoying insistence on starting whenever it wants to.

General :: Remove Unwanted Apps Preinstalled On Phone?

Jul 11, 2012

U mainly wanted to root to remove the unwanted apps preinstalled on my phone because I was tired of running out of space. I rooted successfully via Odin. downloaded root installer and removed the unwanted apps. Then I started playing around with other apps. But now when I try to use any of them I get "app was denied super user permission" and telling me I need to be rooted. I tried factory reset but that didn't work. In fact, I now can't even use app uninstaller to remove those apps.

I just got my first smartphone and downloaded some apps off the play market. However, an icon never appeared on my home screen that links to them. I can access them by opening the market back up, searching for the app, and running it there. But I can't seem to figure out how to make a shortcut.

General :: Mystery Apps Appearing On Play Store?

Aug 21, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a number of apps that appeared on my All Apps list without me ever even installing them.

The two by martetrut and the casino one. I tried searching my phone for any trace of these apps and found nothing other than their appearance on this list.

Today, I looked at my list and now more mystery apps have appeared, with another app by that martetrut dev.

I downloaded lookout and Norton and ran several scans and they didn't pick up anything.... I'm a little concerned.

If it matters, I'm completely stock. HTC One X

I am rooted and have some knowledge of adb and the android sdk. here are just a number of the apps I never will use, so I would prefer to free up memory.

HTC Eris :: Remove Unwanted Apps With Rooted 2.1

Mar 16, 2010

I am looking for a bit of info and/or a tut on how to remove apps with the rooted 2.1 for the Eris ( BTW thanks to all the dev's for their hard work). I have installed the rooted 2.1 with out a hitch. I have been looking around to find out how to uninstall a few of the apps (amazon, stocks, tweet) and found people that say to use SDK's ADB or terminal. I understand what the terminal is and the SDK that google offers is but not the ADB. I also understand that there is a chance to brick by removing the wrong things. So I don't want to just make a careless mistake.

Android :: App To Block Unwanted Callers AND Unwanted SMS

Apr 4, 2010

New to Android. I always used a app called Magicall on my WM device. I want to be able to block specific contacts, unknown number or anonymous numbers and also specific contacts for SMS. I can see I have the option to send a contact direct to voicemail but don't have the same facility for unknown/anonymous callers and nothing to block SMS. Any recommendations for an app that works with 2.1? (I'm using a HTC Desire)

HTC Incredible :: Apps For Appearing Zoomed In

Jun 3, 2010

I recently dl'd google scoreboard... my buddy at work recommended it. He has incredible too. The icons didn't fit properly and some text on bottom was cut off so I told him it was crap. He showed me his incred and the app looked fine. I then tried all my apps and noticed that a bunch of games I haven't played in weeks were now showing up with this zoomed in look.... others work/fit flawlessly. These games did work fine previously. I'm assuming some other app is to blame but have no idea how to go about it.

Motorola Droid X :: Killing Unwanted Apps / Coming Back To Life

Nov 16, 2010

My DroidX has several pieces of bloatware from Verizon or Motorola. I don't mind giving up a little Ram space for them, but many are running all of the time. After you kill them they come back to life. Why does Music, Maps, SkypeMobile, CityId etc. need to run when I haven't even started them? I "assume" that they are just waiting until the end of a time period (an hour I hope rather than a second) to check if the need to "call home". If they are doing much they are eating battery time which isn't as good as I would like. I realize that I would have to root my Droid to remove the apps. Is there an easier ways to keep them from running?

Motorola Droid :: Apps On SD Card Not Appearing Using LauncherPro

Oct 18, 2010

Rooted Motorola Droid 1 running UD8. Having trouble with my apps that are on the SD card not appearing using LauncherPro. Getting to be very frustrating. Appears that LauncherPro loads faster than the SD apps. I have been successful in "Restarting" LauncherPro in the "Setting, Preferences" tab. When LauncherPro restarts the apps are then their for use. This does not happen very often when I aas I go on. Very, very frustrating to have apps on Droid and not being able to use them. Any help will be appreciated. Ready to move on to something else if I cannot get a working runnaround. This is what the window with the SD card apps that do not work looks like. This is the message I get when I try to use one of the SD card apps. This is what it looks like when I go into "Menu, Applications" to look at my apps. Stays this way forever. This is what it looks like when I try to move an app. Never changes.

Android :: Apps Not Appearing Market Place On Certain Phones

Jan 24, 2010

My family has got three android phones, an HTC Hero, a Samsung Galaxy, and a T-Mobile Pulse, all are running android 1.5 with the latest manufacturer firmware. On the T-Mobile Pulse, when searching for a couple of apps (ones that I have installed on the other two devices), I get returned 'no matches'. For example, if I search for 'BrightAI', which is a developer who has around 8 apps on the market, I get no matches. If I search for individual apps, I get 'no matches'. Searching for the same on either the Hero or Galaxy returns the expected results. Does anyone have any ideas why certain apps are accessible on one device, but not the other?

Between looking around here and on androidzoom, I found a couple of apps I want. Problem when I use myphone to access the market, it says that they aren't there. Specifically, I am looking for Launcherpro beta and Adobe Reader. If I find them in androidzoom and scan the barcode its not there either. Short of rooting my phone to install market enabler, is there anything else I can do ?? Or are these not appearing because they won't run on 1.6 ?

HTC Droid Eris :: Owned Apps Not Appearing In Market After 2.1 Upgrade

Mar 31, 2010

Is there another thread that addresses this issue? If so sorry to take up space. but some apps that i paid for arent appearing on market after flashing the lates 2.1 roms. Raging Thunder game Theres a pt.2 but aso not available. More icons paid Latest swype. to name a few. is there anyone else that has this prob? I emailed an app dev, about this issue and he replied "for some reason your phone doesnt allow you to list copy protected apps after updating." then suggested i contact market/google support. i went to the link and no email. just a link to FAQ. Maybe this supposed 2.1 official from htc leak isnt the %100 complete version. If so oh well, there would be a rom updated for that one as well if thats the case. I am pretty satisfied w/ the currrent build. I think its great.

General :: Unwanted Downloaded Photos?

Jan 25, 2012

So, a few weeks ago, after having continuous problems with my phone (it kept giving me a storage capacity full warning, even though I had deleted most of my apps and all my text messages and the phone storage info on the phone said I had plenty of storage) I figured maybe I had too many pictures in my phone. I had about 375. I had never downloaded them to my computer before. So we went ahead and downloaded my photos. Too my suprise there were numerous images that came up on my computer, presumably from my phone, that were not in my pictures. Some were obviously from websites (pics of yahoo mail and such) but pics from what I would assume were from a website that I had never seen, ie. a resturant I had never been to, and a few questionable websites if you know what I mean. Nobody else has access to my phone. Where did these images come from? Was it a virus, or something attached to another website, or what??

I just purchased a Galaxy S3 though Telus (Canada). I'm trying to figure out how to either: block emails or automatically delete emails at the phone level, NOT the server level.

My wife gets a lot of emails that I'm not interested in, I still want these messages to come through to her phone or
on the home computer, I just don't want them clogging my phone.Any apps I've seen can block either phone calls or sms texts, but not emails.

General :: Unwanted Continuous Alarm Upon Any Notification?

Apr 13, 2014

At some point in the past (in a moment of foolishness), I installed some piece of software on my Samsung S4 that sounds an audible alarm whenever any notification appears on the bar. It starts beeping and will not stop until I swipe down. As my employer has insisted on a password, this is now often a minute-long process and very annoying and occasionally embarrassing.

Note, I like notifications; I just want to stop this alarm going off every time I get one from any application.

I cannot find anything intuitive in any list of applications or any other system list. How do I get rid of it?
