This solution would work if the device is rooted. For Jelly Bean (4.2.1) and Kitkat (4.4.2) Android keeps a log of when was an app (it's component) last used. You can head down to /data/system/usagestats/ using a file explorer with root access, or using adb. There would be a file named usage-history.xml and some other files with naming convention as ...

I found that the presentation saved by this app isn't in .ppt format but each slide is sliced into a .jpg having a numeric name, and the images are found only under /data/data/net.slideshare.mobile/files/ E.g. A presentation with 78 pages was sliced into images with names ranging from 7456179_00.jpg, 7456179_01.jpg...7456179_78.jpg. Note that all the ...

This solution is independent of any Camera app, and is tested on CM12 (Lollipop 5.0.2) and should work on other Lollipop ROMs as well. While it seems that the question is about changing the naming scheme of Silent Camera app, the actual goal is to use an app that is free from shutter sounds. OP seems to have found an another app (see this answer) to suit ...

To sum up @Firelord's comments: The naming scheme is not random numbers, but rather the Unix time the photo was taken. It is easy to convert this to human time: one has but to paste the number sequence into epochconverter and convert it. That outputs GMT and your timezone. From the conversions, it seems the number sequence is even more accurate than the ...

Does the device itself have a passcode? Either way, the device is probably accessible through USB. Get ADB, plug the device into a computer, and using ADB (hopefully USB debugging was enabled before your dad sent it to hell) first type adb devices to make sure your computer sees the phone. If you're successful, you'll see your phone get listed on the screen. ...

There is an idea by Firelord in the comment here which I think should work: The best way I think is to have a backup of the app (at least its APK if not the data files; APK of earlier version of an app can also be obtained from some websites (beware of malware) if you updated the app and doesn't have the backup) so that if you end up disliking the ...

If you didn't have the requirement of being able to access the settings (the settings app is part of the launcher in some ROMs), this would probably be easier. In that case, you could simply build a custom ROM that boots straight to calculator. The main disadvantage would be the absence of even a battery indicator.

There is screen pinning in lollipop which you can access from the recent apps screen. This will keep the pinned app open. The home button will be disabled, no notifications will show, and the lock screen is bypassed. If you need to unpin the app, you hold the back and recent apps buttons for about a second. You did mention this is an old android phone, ...

It does not seem possible to order 2 Ubers at the same time: requesting an Uber changes the application interface, making it impossible to request a second Uber.

You could also try eNotify. On one hand, it is the most powerful notification filtering app for Android. It supports nearly all types of email. It can be used to determine whether a notification should be shown based on the sender, subject, content, priority and pretty much anything else. However, it also has the ability to move emails to the SPAM folder or ...

The app likely uses an undocumented API to communicate with their backend server, so to reverse engineer what this is you need to monitor the app's network traffic. Fortunately this is straightforward for Android: install the Chrome extension ARC Welder so that you can run Android apps on your computer download the app's APK and load it in ARC Welder ...

Based on my answer on the question Andrew linked to, this is what should be in your list_apps script: for app in $(ls /data/app/*.apk); do appname=$(aapt d badging $app | grep 'application: label' | sed -n \"s/.*label\='\([^']*\)'.*/\1/p\") pkgname=$(basename $app) echo ${pkgname} "${appname}" done Run this on your Android device. ...

If you don't want to root your device, you can use adb and pm instead. These steps will be hard to follow unless you already are familiar with the use of command-line tools. Install adb on your computer, and set things up so that it can communicate with your device. Don't forget to enable USB debugging on your device. It's a big hassle to get adb ...
