General :: Putting Limit On Max Number Of Apps That Can Stay In Task-switcher Cache?

Mar 24, 2012

how about putting a limit on the max number of apps that can stay in the task-switcher cache? or allowing selectively selecting which ones stay in the memory N others like tools n utilities frontends (like cpu spy, callrecorder, camera, setcpu no frills, etc) should get the heck out of the cache.

the ideal would be to have only 4 real-app (not utility/tool) [not]processes /cached tasks/ at max for 512mb fones (like my xperia s) and maybe 6 for 1gb ones.

General :: How To Limit Cache Size

Jun 9, 2012

I do really love cloud computing... But, Google seems to have forgot something: set a limit to the cache size.

I have a Nexus S and my poor 16Gb internal memory is saturated because of caches: Google+, Android Gallery (Picasa), Google Music and Google Listen all fight for the sdcard space.

The only apps who have explicit cache settings is Google Listen... The others don't have obvious options. I have 10K songs, 10-20K photos, etc.. I need to access them, but I need to limit the cache size.

Is there a way to easily limit cache size per apps?

General :: How To Get Contact To Top Of List By Putting Number Before Last Name

May 6, 2014

I have been able in the past to get a contact to the top of the list by putting a number before their last name.

eg: 1 Smith John

This would bring them to the top of the list. I would do this with people I want to call, etc. the most.

I have been trying to get a contact to the top of the list by putting a 1 before the last name of a contact in my contact list on my S5 and it is not bringing them to the top.

General :: Running Out Of Phone Space / How To Limit Some Apps

Dec 11, 2012

HTC Sensation 4g which I love--but for just 1 gig of internal software, some of which is obliterated by bloatware...I keep clearing the overall cache and uninstalling apps, and every time I look up---space is disappearing again. No matter how much I seem to clear, it gets used by something.

At this point there isn't a whole l_ot left I can clear. I've moved everything I can to the card. The apps left on the phone that I control (the HTC bloat ware can't be uninstalled) are coming down to ones I want to keep.My theory is that it is three things largely eating up space: Facebook, G+ and/or gmail's contacts.

Now, all 3 apps I like and use, but in any event I must have Gmail and contact; it is highly desirable to have FB, and I really can't uninstall FB or G+ anyway with the HTC sense configuration. When I clear the cache of G+ and FB, I usually recover quite a bit of space--and then it's gone again once I use it.

So, is there anyway to limit how much data Fb/COntacts/ G+ download to my phone?

Android :: Limit To Number Of Touch Inputs In Application?

Jul 26, 2010

I have a small test app on Android that is meant to test tracking multitouch input, but I am only ever getting two touches at the same time on my Evo. Does anyone know if this is a limitation to Android or the hardware? By the way, here's my test class so you can try it out yourself.

import java.util.HashMap; import android.content.Context;
import android.graphics.Canvas; import android.graphics.Color;
import android.graphics.Paint; import android.graphics.Paint.Style;
import android.view.MotionEvent; import android.view.View;
public class PressureView extends View {
private HashMap<Integer, Spot> mSpots = new HashMap<Integer, Spot>();
private final int[] mColors; private final Paint mPaint;
public PressureView(Context context) { super(context);
mPaint = new Paint(); mPaint.setStyle(Style.FILL);
mColors = new int[]{Color.RED, Color.GREEN, Color.BLUE, Color.YELLOW, Color.MAGENTA};

} @Override protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) { super.onDraw(canvas);
canvas.drawColor(Color.WHITE); for(int id : mSpots.keySet()) {
Spot spot = mSpots.get(id); mPaint.setColor(spot.Color);
canvas.drawCircle(spot.X, spot.Y, spot.Pressure*500, mPaint);
} } @Override public boolean onTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) {
System.out.println("***" + event.getPointerCount() + " Pointers");
for(int i = 0; i < event.getPointerCount(); i++) { int id = event.getPointerId(i);
Spot spot = null; if(mSpots.containsKey(id)) { spot = mSpots.get(id);
} else { spot = new Spot(); spot.Color = mColors[mSpots.size()]; }

if(event.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_UP) spot.Pressure = 0;
else spot.Pressure = event.getPressure(id);
spot.X = event.getX(id); spot.Y = event.getY(id);
mSpots.put(id, spot); } invalidate(); return true;
} private class Spot { public float X, Y, Pressure; public int Color; } }

Android :: How To Limit Number Of Same Activity On Stack For Droid App?

May 10, 2010

Is this possible in an Android app? I want to make it so that no matter how many times a user starts activityA, when they hit the back button they will never get more than one occurence of activityA. What I am finding in my current code is that I have only two options 1. I can call finish() in activityA which will prevent it from being accessible via the back button completely, or 2. I do not call finish(), and then if the user starts activityA (n) times during their usage, there will be (n) instances when hitting the back button. Again, I want to have activityA accessible by hitting the back button, but there is no reason to keep multiple instances of the same activity on the stack. Is there a way to limit the number of instances of an activity in the queue to only 1?

Android :: Limit For The Number Of Files In Directory On An SD Card?

Apr 16, 2010

I have a project written for Android devices. It generates a large number of files, each day. These are all text files and images. The app uses a database to reference these files.

The app is supposed to clear up these files after a little use (perhaps after a few days), but this process may or may not be working. This is not the subject of this question.

Due to a historic accident, the organization of the files are somewhat naive: everything is in the same directory; a .hidden directory which contains a zero byte .nomedia file to prevent the MediaScanner indexing it.

Today, I am seeing an error reported:

CODE:................

Regarding the sdcard, I see it has plenty of storage left, but counting

$ cd /Volumes/NO_NAME/.hidden
$ ls | wc -w
9058

Deleting a number of files seems to have allowed the file creation for today to proceed.

Regrettably, I did not try touching a new file to try and reproduce the error on a commandline; I also deleted several hundred files rather than a handful.

However, my question is: Are there hard limits on filesize or number of files in a directory?
am I even on the right track here?

Nota Bene: The SD card is as-is - i.e. I haven't formatted it, so I would guess it would be a FAT-* format.

The FAT-32 format has hard limits of filesize of 2GB (well above the filesizes I am dealing with) and a limit of number of files in the root directory. I am definitely not writing files in the root directory.

HTC Desire :: Putting Apps To SD Card

Aug 3, 2010

So I updated by phone to android 2.2, and am having problems putting apps to the SD card. I have used ROM Manager to set a partition, and used App 2 SD to copy the Apps over, but it always fails. So I put a diffrent ROM on, and it does the same thing. So I decided it was time to get a bigger SD card anyway, so while I wait for it to arrive, I thought I would ask, is there anything I should do to either my phone, or the SD card before I put it in my phone or anything I should do to prepare it so I can get apps on my SD Card.

In my root settings (I think its root then you turn phone on and press the down button), in the partition section there what should the settings be? Also as I'm getting a 16gig card, having read bits on here by helpful posters who say I need to partition it to be 256 with a 0 swap file, as I will have more space, can I/should i increase this, and should I put a value for the swap file (what does this do?).

General :: How To Close All Apps / Is There A Task Manager

Mar 16, 2012

I've been with my Droid 4 for about a week, but it has slowed down for some reason.I'm suspecting that it's due to all those open apps, which I don't know how to close.How do you close all apps? Is there task manager? I come from the Windows Mobile world, and, as archaic as the OS was, it was very easy to bring up the task manager, just like in the Desktop Windows OS, and close any or all apps to reclaim memory and speed.

General :: Random Apps Showing Up In Task Manager?

May 4, 2012

I have this Motorola Flipside and I installed GOLauncher on it. With it I am using the GO Task Manager, and some other widgets, etc. as well. I have noticed that I will close out stuff I am not using any more, using the GO TM widget, and I will turn off the display/put phone to sleep. Then I'll get a text or something and tend to that, hit the home screen and will see the TM and there are like 10 apps open. I'll close them out again and put the phone back to sleep. A few mins later an e-mail or text comes in and I'll tend to it, home screen, again, a bunch of random apps show up in the TM.

Apps like Facebook Camera, ESPN Score Center, GPS, News, Settings, a widget that I don't even use and others randomly populate in the TM. I haven't even opened them or used them, but they are there. The things that were used are in there, and the items I have locked are there, but that's expected. I just don't understand why things are showing up there that haven't been opened. And randomly? Sometimes I will even close them out, hit refresh on the widget and it will just be what is supposed to be there, hit refresh again, bam - more random things show up. Close those, hit refresh a few times, those/others show up again.

What do I need to change? Or is this just something to do with the phone/launcher, perhaps?

General :: Apps That Require Permissions Not Needed For Task

Feb 20, 2013

I didnt have a smartphone for a while and i just got a shining new nexus 4.

I want to installs all the apps out there but i realise many of them require permissions that (i think) are not actually needed by the app to do whatever it needs to do..

For example i want to install power toggles it asks to use my camera... cant the flashlight be turned on without allowing the camera to be used?

Anyways, i realise that apps that sometimes do the exact same things require different permissions, hence... ?

So main question is: is the permission to use the camera really required by an app that turns on the led?
