KitKat 4.4 :: TURN-OFF Downloaded Apps Like The Built In Ones?

Apr 23, 2014

I just discovered within application manager that there's a 'TURN-OFF' button to easily disable any of the apps which came with the phone.

Is there something similar for ones that I downloaded?

I'd like to try disabling apps without uninstalling them for the purpose of trouble-shooting wake-ups.

KitKat 4.4 :: Can 4.4.2 In-Built Apps Write To SD Card Or Not

Jun 3, 2014

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 running 4.4.2 KitKat. I tried to set the default image, video and documents directories to a folder on the SD card by going to MyFiles -> Settings -> SDCard path. I am taking photos & videos using the default app, not a 3rd party app. Although it is showing me the default is set to the SD card, the images I take using the default camera app all seem to save to the default internal storage /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera.

getting the default image directories to be on the SD card?

General :: In KitKat WiFi And GPS Doesn't Turn Off Sometimes

Mar 13, 2014

Once you have turned on GPS, when you turn it off later, sometimes it doesn't really turn-off even if the quick setting tile says it is turned off.

[EXAMPLE]

I turned GPS on, opened Tinder, used it for few minutes, closed it and turned off GPS, removed Tinder from recent apps.

Next night, I see Tinder is the top battery consumer, with 1 day 9 hours of GPS use. GPS shows up as ON the entire time in the battery graph; while GPS tile is "off" in quick settings as well as locations services is also set to off.

[SCREENSHOTS]

I had seen exactly similar GPS hogging from Facebook and Maps too.

This exact same thing happens with Wi-Fi too. I had turned off Wi-Fi at night before going to sleep. But after returning from work the next day, I see in the battery graph that the Wi-Fi was on for the entire 17+ hours. And it still showed as "Off" in Quick settings tile and Wi-Fi settings page. The Wi-Fi definitely wasn't ON since as soon as I turned it on via QuickSetting tile, I got a flood of notifications. But there was considerable amount of battery drain, which is unusual when everything is off. Makes me think that the Wi-Fi was in fact ON. So, when I had turned Wi-Fi off at night, the phone only disconnected from the hotspot but still remained on.

[DEVICES]

Nexus 5 - running stock 4.4.2 with Xposed and latest Linaro.
Galaxy Nexus - running AOKP 4.4.2 nightly with Franco; no xposed.

[BUG TRACKER]
Issue #64998 - The GPS bug was already reported by someone else in the Android project bug tracker. But it has low priority there and doesn't look like it will get addressed anytime soon.

Android :: Is It Legal To Customize / Publish Built-in Apps?

Like the Alarm Clock, Calculator, etc. I see that the source is available at :

For example, the alarm clock I'm going to modify will "look exactly the same" as the built-in one, but there'll be a lot more functions. Is it legal to extend the functionality of the Alarm Clock and publish it as paid application?

Android :: Apps Built With 1.5 Get A Black-backgound Icon In The Market

May 1, 2009

We've rebuilt a couple of our apps with the 1.5 SDK (but targeting 1.1).

The Market seems to have a bit of trouble with the background of the icons. They appear correctly (with transparent backgrounds) on the desktop, and they appear correctly when the app is downloaded from the Market and installed on the device.

However, they appear on black (not transparent) backgrounds in the Market uploader web page, and in the Market application on the device.

It looks to me as though the Market has a problem when it extracts the icon from the .apk at upload time, with .apks built by the 1.5 SDK.

HTC EVO 4G :: Downloaded Launcher Pro And Switch Pro Apps

Jul 25, 2010

I downloaded launcher pro and switch pro apps. Then I installed a non-market app I got from xda (gallery3d if it matters). After installing that app, launcher pro required a force quit. Now I have my switch pro widget near the bottom of the screen on the home screen. When launcher pro reloaded and put back all my widgets, it looks like it sort of mirrored the switch app on the bottom, behind the dock where the phone and contacts buttons are. It's sort of half on and half off the screen. I can't long press on it, or interact with it in any way. I have tried reloading the switch pro widget, but that doesn't do anything. I have also tried restarting launcher pro, which also has no effect. Rebooting the phone also does not solve. Weird, huh? What do you all think?

HTC Hero :: Apps Downloaded But Won't Install

Oct 7, 2010

Over the last 6 months, I've bought several applications through the market without any problems. Yesterday, I bought Camera Zoom FX which downloaded just fine. But after downloading, it's been stuck at "Installing." in the Download-section of my Market. It sais "Purchased" in the upper right corner (as usual) and I've received the receipt through e-mail. I tried to install another app afterwards, and that worked just fine. Its about 24 hours since I purchased the app now, but it's still trying to install. I've rebooted the phone at least 5 times, cleared the Market-cache before and after rebooting. I've even tried to remove my SD-card just in case.If I click and hold the application in the Market-app, the only choice I get is "Details", not "Uninstall" and the other options I usually get. When I go to the apps details, the button at the bottom is greyed out and says "Installing..". This means I can't cancel the installation or choose uninstall.

My Hero has the official 2.1 version (fully updated) without root or other modifications.I've looked through the forum several times, including what seems to be relevant posts, but I can't seem to find any real solution for this problem. Anyone know how I can fix this? I think it's really strange that Android doesn't have any form of time-out or something for this..

HTC EVO 4G :: Unsuccessful Instal Of Apps Downloaded

Oct 18, 2010

I've tried downloading a few apps from the market and they seem to download fine but when they start to install it fails every single time. I've tried clearing the cache of the market then force closeing and rebooting phone and I read that launching google talk could help that hasnt either. The apps in particular are "Angry Birds" and "Baseball Superstarts 2010" both are the full versions. I want to get Angry Birds before it isnt free anymore. Also I am rooted on Clockwork Rom with KingxKernal BFS. And all other apps and updates download and install fine which is really odd.
