I know there are a few apps threads, but did not really find one that would describe what they do or why others might like it. Might help others find something that they did not know was out there in the market. So if anyone has any suggestions, please post with the name of the app, description and if it costs or if it is free (free is always good).I just found this app called tunewiki.This is a music app. Not just another regular music app, but pretty cool. So if you have any songs on your phone, you click on it, then it will find the cover art (kind of like what pandora does) but also show the song lyrics. You can then hit the tv tube looking icon and then it will search youtube so you can see the video. And this is free.
Do not get me wrong - I love the Android, especially the vast amount of apps to choose from. But has anyone noticed how much more vibrant and polished the Palm Pre apps are as opposed to Android apps? Take the weather apps for example (Weather Bug or Weather Channel). They are so much brighter and complex on the Pre. I know the Pre apps are far less in number, but the ones that are there seem much more polished. Am I crazy, or does anyone else notice this?
Been messing around with the Moment for a couple of days now. The battery life kinda sucks but the phone is very cool. Fast downloads and the Android Market is great. how to remove apps that came preloaded ie: weather channel, bejeweled demo? Also when you return to the browser it takes you back to where you returned to the home screen telling me it keeps pages running. Any idea how to stop or shut them down when you exit them?
so i just put 2.1 on my phone and for some reason i cant open the maority of apps i download. most of the ones not working are live wall papers, but there has been a few others. im running helix. any ideas how to load those live wall papers. and why random apps would not open? it takes me to the market from the notification sreen and the open option is greyed out.
I see there was a fix for the streaming media problem - works great now! What about the apps that are missing from the market? Any progress down that avenue? I've mentioned it a few times in other threads, but I would like to get MLB At Bat 2010 back!
Alright I've rooted to Joeykrim 1.9.5 and I can't put themes ON. Also I can't find an UNCOMPLICATED way to get rid of unwanted apps. I think its because MAx's recovery isn't loaded but IDK. I've tried the volume, speak, end to load themes but doesn't work. Anyone give me a hand??
I had my Samsung moment was acting up, had to have it factory reset. I backed up my apps in the Astro file app. Now I downloaded that app. but I don't know how to restore all my apps. Please can someone tell me how to restore them? Or do I have to do each one individually? And I can't remember most of them.
Is there anyway to make certain apps private, hidden or locked on the menu screen. I have lil brothers and nephews who I don't mind playing games or watching movies on my phone; but I don't want them getting into certain "adult" apps or my fake call and sms apps. I believe it's possible to do b/c there's an app called Call Log (Secret Monitor) that has in its description "No icon in the list of applications. Completely hidden at you eyes". I downloaded it just to check and it really doesn't appear in the menu. So does anyone know how to do it for any app that we choose?
The Android Applications forum keeps misleading me because people talk about apps and features that aren't available in Android 1.5, so I thought I'd ask the other Moment owners about home replacement apps. I think I'd like something, but I'm really hesitant to pay for one that I may not like, and I also worry that I'd not really understand all I could do with one and therefore not truly appreciate it.
I've also seen very mixed reviews on nearly every home replacement app.
So I'm curious about the opinions of other Moment owners on these home replacement apps and also if there are any good places for thorough information on them.
I finally updated my moment and I need help getting it back to how it was. I backed up all my apps, text and calls, but I don't know how to get them back on the phone. Google did my contacts, but not my text. I see my text in my gmail, but how do I put them back on my phone, as well as my apps. I went to the market and downloaded Astro as b4, and I went to my sdcard and to the folder named backup, but what's next?
i have had my phone for a few weeks and i am loving it. i downloaded the pandahome hero theme for my phone and it is really good and runs a little faster than the moment stock screen, but it crashes a lot. does anyone else have this theme and have similar issues? it seems to freak out when i open the key board when im not in a texting app. just curious if anyone has run into this issue. next pandora does not run well at all. everytime i do anything while pandora is up it starts breaking up and sounds like a transformer is talking. wondering if there is a fix for this at all. thanks for any help. also in an unrealted note, has anyone used androidplayground.net? its like 2 bucks a month for unlimited free apps. is this a good site or is it shifty? just curios if anyones tried it.
I would have to say in no order: Google Goggles Google Maps 4.1.1 Live wallpapers Speech to Text is AWESOME Google Gesture Ultrachron w/ voice set Barcode Scanner Microsoft Tag Reader Spare Parts Add your favs and let's rock this phone!
On my old instant they had a live search, or thats what i think it was called. You press a button and say bar or whatever u choose and brings up the local spots. Are there any apps for the moment that I can do this with?
My wife sends me wallpapers. Whenever I try to set them it it takes me to cropping, and I cant get the entire image. Any apps to resize? I've tried set and save, can't seem to get it to work, and what size should I set to?
I have read through all the threads and tried the different suggestions but I am still unable to download apps. My husband and I switched phones so we did the factory reset and it hasn't worked since. Any ideas?
How i clear the defaults for apps that don't show up in settings>applications>manage applications? i have the regular and 3d galleries installled, and when i opened the stock gallery, it asked me to choose between gallery gallery and gallery camera when veiwing. i selected gallery gallery and set to default but now when i open a folder, it always opens the 3d gallery folder. i'd like to change this.
I just rooted and upgraded to 2.1DD10 last night. I find 2.1's lock screen extremely annoying. I currently have it disabled with No Lock. Is there any apps that have a better lock screen? Or an app that you use? I don't want to use PandaHome or apps like that. Just want a simple app that its only function is a lock screen.
Anybody had a problem with Market not notifing you when you have an update? I come from being a long time G1 user so i know its suppuse to notify you but yesterday i go into my downloads and like 15 of my apps needed update and i was like well i never got a notification.
This isn't the first time someone has posted a stock app removal guide and probably wont be the last but lately I've seen a lot of threads on the topic so decided to put together a guide of apps that i have removed that has greatly helped out my battery life. For all intensive purposes this is the 'easiest' free way to get rid of the bloat, it does however require root access. You can always just buy root explorer from the market and delete them with it. I tried to make this guide as nob friendly as possible.
Watching Taskiller, I've seen that programs I close continually reopen.
My first thought was 'oh, I have them set to sync, I'll turn that off' so I disabled all syncing items on the phone - went through every menu and every setting and submenu to ensure there wasn't anything calling up a program I didn't need running.
That said, many of the programs I randomly see when going into Taskiller are things like Sprint Navigation, Moxier Mail, Messaging, NFL Mobile Live, Sprint TV, the Weather Channel app, and Calendar.
If I've turned off syncing, things like Moxier Mail and Calendar shouldn't be opening - and the rest of the items up there DEFINITELY shouldn't be automatically reopening, sucking up my memory and (presumably) my battery.
My fiancee and I each got Moments on Tuesday, each love them, but we're each seeing these rogue programs continually restarting and while she's not meticulous and crazy about it, it's driving me nuts.
I grabbed Startup Auditor, but aside from that not even working from a warm reboot, it restarted itself repeatedly and that led to a quick uninstallation...not to mention that these programs weren't just starting on boot, but randomly appearing in my open apps list in Taskiller at various times I'd check it during the day.
First, I'm assuming we're not alone in seeing this issue, right?
Second, what the HELL can I do to stop these things from starting? I absolutely do NOT NEED the Weather Channel app to start up - I live in San Diego, damnit, it's gonna be 70 and partly cloudy!
I just switched from the Palm pre to the samsung moment and love it so far. One thing i dont like though is the navigation, even though they are both sprint navi. the moment is so much slower at getting an adress and routing you to that adress. It wouldnt be that big of a deal for me but like i stated in a different post i am a police officer and came to a new district and am getting to know the area so when a priority job comes out it takes me a while to input the adress and get routed there as with the pre it was pretty much instantanious. I really dont want to go out and buy a stand alone navigation so can any of you guys help me. Are there any better apps or upgrades for the navigation?
I have been using the Sprint HTC hero for a few months now and love it.so my wife decided she wanted to try out an Android phone but could not live with out the physical keyboard.Anyway, I was wondering if I could get some help with what to do first. Are there any major fixes I need to do or apps I need to download like with the Hero?I did read about draining the battery all the way and then charging it back all the way.
perhaps a bit of a newbie question - but having some issues with inline pictures with the email application. I am on Gmail....and using the email application. When I go on the phone using the browser to gmail I can see the pictures, when using the email app I cannot. Two questions.
1. Is there a difference between the email app that comes with the phone and the Gmail app. I have a Gmail email address and no other email accounts.
2. Are there other apps that are better about inline images?
