KitKat 4.4 :: Disable Automatic App Updates?

Mar 18, 2014

I frequently get unsolicited notifications that one or more apps have been updated. Is there a way to disable automatic app updates? I like to check for myself to see if I really want a specific app update. Examples: some apps want to enable new permissions that I don't necessarily want; some irreversibly change or even do away with the app - e.g., Currents.

Phone is a new Nexus 5. (Great phone, by the way)

HTC Desire :: Allow Automatic Updates

Oct 29, 2010

As "Allow Automatic updates" is checked I would have thought that the update should download ....... erm . automatically. Nothing happened. until I stated to download something else from the Marketplace and hey presto down came the Maps update. This is the second time this has happened. I can only assume that by initiating a download the Desire is synched with the Market, but this doesn't occur by just browsing the Market.

Android :: Automatic Market Updates

Dec 16, 2009

Does an app developer need to do something peculiar in code to get a newer version of an uploaded app to show up in the notification bar on installed users' phone?I am reading comments that vary wildly and I can neither determine if the message content I am reading is relevant or current.With the pace of change in Android, perhaps we should filter messages older than a year from results? :)

Sprint HTC Hero :: Are There Automatic Updates For Apps?

Jan 1, 2010

For quite some time before getting my Android phone, I was using the iPod Touch, which would automatically tell me when there were updates for my Apps, and I would simply click "update" to update and install the latest versions.Recently, Facebook updated its App.I would not have known about this unless I read an article and went to the Android Market to find the Facebook App.It appears there are no automatic updates for Apps. Is this correct?

General :: Latitude Keeps Re-enabling Automatic Location Updates

Nov 23, 2012

I've set Latitude to be updated manually (location set manually) and I update it with Latify.

Every once in a while, I notice my battery draining faster than usual and I check my Latitude settings and there it is. Latitude has changed it's location update settings to "automatically update".

I swap sim cards out quite often as I travel between a few countries for work. Is that the cause?

HTC EVO 4G :: Disable Automatic Backlight Dimming While Charging

Jun 11, 2010

I'm running into an issue, that I'm sure many of you have ran into at some point and found a way around. When I have my Phone Plugged into the Charger (For example when in my car) after a set amount of time (I think it's around 30 seconds) my screen will Dim to only about 25% brightness(But never shut off completely). As you can imagine, this is horribly inconvenient when I'm running Google maps or sprint navigation. How can I make it, so that when I'm charging the phone, the screen just always stays on and does not dim at all? And then when I'm on battery the screen resumes the normal behavior of shutting off after 30 seconds. I've tried setting the "Stay Awake" option under "Applications > Development" to on, I've also tried setting the "Automatic Brightness" option under "Sound & Display > Brightness" to off. Neither of these worked.

General :: How To Disable Google Maps Automatic Update

Jun 16, 2011

I have recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S, and Google Maps came installed on the phone. Now if I enter Android Market, then Google Maps is automatically updated, if there is an update. I have checked it under My apps, but there is no Automatic update checkbox as for other programs I downloaded from the market. Is there a way to disable this automatic update for Google Maps? I would be great, if I could choose when it should be updated, because its not funny, when my 3G limit is exceeded with Google Maps updates.

Android :: Disable Automatic Redirect Handling By HttpClient In Droid 1.5?

Jun 11, 2009

As I understand by default HttpClient automatically handles Redirect replies from server (follows the redirect link included in the answer from a server). I wonder if and how is it possible to disable this behaviour and handle redirects manually, meaning that I can get redirect link from the reply, modify it and issue a new http request. In a "desktop" version of HttpClient/HttpMethod one can do it as follows:

HttpMethod method = new GetMethod(requestUrl); method.setFollowRedirects(false);

How can I do the same under Android?

Samsung Vibrant :: Set Manual Screen Lock / Disable Automatic?

Nov 3, 2010

Just got my new Vibrant delivered yesterday so now the questions start.

1. Is there a way to disable the automatic screen locking and allow me to just press the on/off switch to lock? There are many cases where I don't want the screen to lock automatically - eg. listening to music. But then when I put the phone in my pocket, case, whatever, I'd like to press a button to lock it.

Android :: Disable OTA OS Updates?

Aug 18, 2010

We have a variety of devices for testing purposes, and now that Froyo is being pushed (to the Nexus One so far at least), we have to constantly dismiss upgrade requests. There is no apparent "stop asking me" button.

So, is there any way I can disable OTA OS updates? We want a number of these phones to stay on old OS versions.

Motorola Droid :: How To Disable OTA Updates?

Sep 8, 2010

As soon as the 2.2 update was leaked for the Droid, I downloaded it and applied it to my phone, rather than keep waiting for Verizon to push it out weeks later. The update process went smoothly, and I have been running Froyo for a couple weeks now.

The problem is, now my phone bugs me with the OTA update notification constantly, and the only options I have are to install, or install later. I have no option to decline the update. Is there any way to tell android to stop attempting to apply the OTA update? I am surprised it is even trying, as its already running 2.2 so why would it still try and update? If it matters, I have rooted my Droid.

General :: How To Disable Playstore Updates

Oct 22, 2013

just got my new phone and unfortunately i had to realize, that there are some apps i cant install.

I know that this issue depends on my Playstore, so i want to install a custom playstore with no restrictions.

Did this many times on other phones and never got problems.

But this time there is a problem:

I can install the modded version of the playstore without any problems. But it self-updates every time and i cant do anything against.

In the Last android versions there was a "Market Updater" App, which you could just freeze to avoid this.

But in my Android 4.2.2 theres no such app.

How I can prevent the Playstore from updating?
