Samsung Galaxy S :: Downloading Free Apps To PC For Uploading
Nov 4, 2010
I recently had to reinstall my whole phone but didn't save the apps.Now I had alot of apps but they were all mostly free ones so it didn't bother me.Downloading this many though is going way over my internet usage and costing me a fortune (I have fair use policy and its cained)Basically so I dont have to download from the market I thought it be good to try and find the .apk files for each Free app I have and just download them to my PC then paste them onto my phone internal SD then using astro or something install them.Only problem is, I cant find where to get the.Anyone help?
Today I noticed my pocket was getting a little warm. Check my phone anand my battery was getting pretty low even though I have not used it at all today. Check back in about 10 minutes and it had droped another 10% and the 3G at the top was staying lit as well as both arrows. I turned off the phone and turn it back on. Still same thing. Download ATK and killed everything. I gave up when it made it from 35% to 10% in about an hour. After plugging in and leaving it for an hour it has been fine.
I'm switching over from iPhone 4 to Android Galaxy Nexus. Any good app is for uploading and downloading pics between the phone and a PC? I want to setup albums on phone too so that related pics are kept together.
I set up my emails (all gmail accounts) with the Galaxy S and told it to check every 5 minutes.I get tones indicating that a mail has arrived, but when I check the email accounts, there are no mails there.I have to select each (of 4) accounts individually to figure out which one received mail.Kind of, well "very", annoying. How do I get the phone to just download the message without bothering me about it?
Just wondering whether anyone has tried downloading/installing additional fonts for their Galaxy S yet.Are the fonts limited to those that can be downloaded from the Apps store? Or are we able to install fonts from other websites too?
I'm having an issue on my poor old Samsung S2. Suddenly I am not able to download certain apps in the google play store because they are not available in my country. I live in the U.S. and have always had this phone in the U.S. so I'm not sure why it suddenly started giving me this message. Currently the app I am trying to download is Guess the 90's which I know is available in the U.S. Is there an easy fix for this that does not involve rooting my phone or calling google support? I have tried resetting my address in google wallet and resetting the play app to no avail.
I remember one of the sticking points last year for me, was the inherent problem in Android of Bluetooth support for Bluetooth Voice Dialling for true "hands free". Not to mention Bluetooth file transfer. I understand Android may still have a problem with Bluetooth voice dialing, or is this just problems with, I think it is, "Droid"?
I have a Galaxy S3, and I noticed that my thumbnails cache was absolutely massive. It grew to 9.6 GB in size. Using Root Explorer, I deleted the .thumbdata3 file and replaced it with a blank file. I noticed that my free space remained 550 MB. I rebooted the device, and it was still reporting only 550 MB free, but there is no sign of the 9.6 GB file anymore. The new .thumbdata3 file reports that it is 0 kb. Next, I tried deleting the .thumbnails folder entirely, thinking maybe the old file was still there someplace. I created a new .thumbnails folder, and created a new .thumbdata3 folder inside of it. After deleting the 9.6 GB thumb file, and the approximately 750 MB worth of photos that were in .thumbnails, my device still shows that only 550 MB is free.
How can this be? I searched the entire device using Root Explorer for any files or folders containing ".thumb," and the 9.6 GB file is definitely gone.
I've got some photos stuck in an MMS that I tried to download before I realised that I didnt have the correct MMS APN settings in (due to swapping to the Modaco ROM). The correct settings are now in but the MMS is stuck at "downloading" status. Is there any way I can rescue it, there is no forward option and I've successfully sent and recieved MMS since.
I wanted to give my app is too long for the small icon. However looking at the market, I notice that other people have got around this by giving a longer name to the app that appears on the market list, and a shorter name to the app itself once it is installed.
For example, the is a calculator app called "RealCalc Scientific Calculator" but when you install it it just appears as "Calculator".
How do I go about this? Does the market ask you for an app name when you upload, where you can put anything you like?
Also, what about the actual .apk filename - is that important, and have any bearing on the name that appears when someone downloads the app?
I am trying to download a ringtone onto my phone (which apparently gets downloaded to my sd card under download) but its saying I have no available space. Its a 2 gig mem card and i have 1.7 gigs left on it thats completely free. And my phone has 99mb of internal memory free. So a few hundred kb ringtone should not be saying this.
to remove the apps i know you have to root and have something like root explorer but when i delete the app it returns when i close root explorer i have tried many programs and all the something. anyone know why this is and how to do it?
I have made my own app with App inventor but i can't upload it to the market i payed the 25$ so.. did that go to total waste?I found a guide cus i know there is a problem with the icon or something here is the site that i found a guide on : http://www.androidworld.it/forum/app-inventor-91/[how-]-publish-app-created-app-inventor-android-market-4597/Could some one who know how to fix this problem maybe help me or make a Youtube video like How to.so i can see how you do.Please i know there is some way to upload it.
Though Galaxy S has got the gorgeous Super AMOLED display and good GPU which is capable of 50FPS, I dont see a whole lot of games developed by Premium Game makers (like EA, Game loft). Also, any game playable with Android 2.1 is compatible with Galaxy S or do we need games specifically developed for Galaxy S?
My husband has a Samsung Galaxy S and has noticed some applications pre-installed on the phone that he doesn't want.However he can't delete them! They don't appear in his list of applications.He's tried going into applications, menu, edit. But only some of the applications (and not the ones he wants to get rid of) have the red no entry sign.
