You can do this via Google Now or even via browser. Just say "Remind me to buy ice cream the next time I am at Fry's" and the next time you're at Fry's, it will remind you to get ice cream. Most of the Google Now features are available via any browser as well. Just search Google for that same statement and it will offer to "Set a reminder" above real ...

Thanks to @vanogrid for the heads up on the second one. It is Todoist, and I found the icon with the plus/+ here. It's a persistent notification that allows you to add a task.

This issue has been plaguing Whatsapp since its inception. I have had long email conversations with their support team on multiple occasions. Even uploaded a detailed video explaining the bug: Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bldIuA-OjU This was their reply after about about 20 emails explaining the issue. I gave up after that. To ...

With root access, there are some apps such as 3c Toolbox that allow you to change the notification settings for any app. App Ops is another one that gives you control over all apps' general permissions. You can actually manage all app permissions from the command line with root access. In Android 5.x, appops was added. It gives control over general app ...

If you're stuck without one of these printers (i.e. a classic printer), you've still got options: Before connecting your classic printer, confirm if you have: Google Chrome Windows or Mac ...

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 ...

Tasker was designed for this type of thing, but I'm not sure I'd call it simple. I use it to prevent the phone ringing (auto hangup) when maps and USB power is on the phone... when I'm driving.

Messenger bubbles are an overlay. Messenger isn't actually interacting with the app running in the background, it's just drawing over it. Even this is a permission that can be denied. Android as an operating system is secure, but like all systems, it's as secure as the code running on it. Android sand boxes apps and only allows them to interact with each ...

Try these : Sensor Kinetics The Sensor Kinetics app is an advanced monitor for the standard sensors that are available on Android devices. It offers a comprehensive look at the dynamics of the combined functionality of the sensors.

jan's answer already addresses how to change the notification policy for such (disabled "show notifications") apps. As for why and when (or essentially, in what condition it applies), your guess of system apps is on the right track. As of the latest version (Android 5.1.1 Lollipop), the checkbox is disabled if: The app is a system app, or The app is not ...

I've been using QuickEdit and it works well. I just tested it by feeding a 1.5MB file (logcat output; 15995 lines) on a two year old device having a ridiculously slow external SD card. It took 1-10 seconds to load that file (this app loads the file completely) but after that things were smooth. You can edit wherever you want and saving took a second only. ...

I'd suggest using ES file Explorer. I has a editor built-in that works pretty well for txt files. I have also tested with a file that's more than 900kb and worked fine. Hope it helps!

Ok I got the answer. Looks like any screen color filter apps mess up this thing. Use CF.Luman to use installation feature or if you want to use the current application, disable that app for a minute to install apk to your device. For complete info look at this thread: Why can't I press the Install button when installing applications from unknown ...

You're using wrong terminology which is confusing others. Let's come to the point. There is the primary user who is the owner of the device (you), then there is Guest user, and then there exists secondary users which are restricted in usage. Your point that "Android 5.0.2 doesn't allow side-loading of APKs" is invalid. Stock ROMs and many custom ROMs ...

Don't know if this will help, but in Link2Sd there is a setting that can automaticaly move apps to the SD using the Native App2SD Method on android phones. You can use this to automaticly move apps2sd nativly and have it show notifications when this is available.

Hope your device is connected to your google account. if so you can install you can install third-party launcher from play store from any system you have access to. just login on web using same google account and it will display your device when you try to install an app from play store. you may additionally like to install something like quick setting.

It seems to be a case of adding a Unicode font to the browser. Instructions for UCBrowser involve creating a font folder inside the UCDownloads folder, then copying the Unicode font file into it. There isn't actually any 'install' program to run as such. A font that seems to work is the Unifoundry standard TTF suggested by Shawn Redmond - tested on ...

Note: This is a partial answer, and might get completed in future. This answer directly focuses upon changing the name of the images created by Silent Camera app. For an alternative approach to the question, see this answer. We know that the name of the images is not a random number but Unix Time (as mentioned here). All we have to do is create and run a ...

It might probably due to permissions error in KitKat (and Lollipop) running Android phones. ♦ Layman Solution : The most common way is to reboot your android phone and try taking the screenshot.

Actually, I think Google won't diagnose those crashes for individual Apps, instead they only collect those reports and present to the developers responsible for the App, and it's their business to trouble shoot the problems. Please check the official document as below. https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/6083203?hl=en

I had the same problem on Alcatel POP C5 with Kingstone 8GB micro sd class 10 card. First i thought that the problem was with the phone. Then after replacing whit another, borrowed card, the phone was working normal again, so i concluded that it was the bad sd card. Using Wake Lock - PowerManager with PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK enabled did solve the problem, ...

I use TrevE.apk. It's not a TCPView replacement. but it has a number of network monitoring tools. I'm suggesting it because it keeps getting better. I started with v6, and now I use v14.
