The naming convention is derived from the Java standards, and is comparable to an URL, but in reverse. The key here is that it has to be unique, that's why it's so specific. In you example, com is the main category which is comparable to a Top Level Domain, which can also be com. Next is the company name king, which can be compared to a domain name, and ...

You can use Android Device Emulator for this. It is packaged with The Android SDK and a virtual mobile device that runs on your computer. The emulator lets you develop and test Android applications without using a physical device. Link: http://developer.android.com/tools/help/emulator.html

It's a pretty subjective question, since no one really knows how many apps do or don't do any given thing. You'd have to carefully analyse each app to find out how much use it can make of multiple cores. Likely, more apps than you realise are doing this. First off, Android makes it very simple for app authors to work in multiple threads, with helpers like ...

There's no simple answer to the question, "Why do programs crash sometimes?" The error message you see tells you that an app has crashed, just like when a program crashes on a desktop computer. Usually this indicates a bug (programming error) in the app or in one of the libraries included in the app (e.g. an ad network, or a library for accessing a ...

If you scroll to the bottom, you will see a few g+ contacts. Tap "See more" to view a list of all the people in your g+ circles. Then tap on the person you want ...

Um, How about Photoshop Touch? Might be a tad expensive for your needs, but it is essentially a toned-down, mobile edition of the Adobe product. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.adobe.pstouch Of course, if you really want it but can't fork out the dough, there's always downloading the apk (but you didn't hear it from me, developers ...

Sure is! When you get your new android phone and sign in with your Google account, it will automatically start to re download your apps! If you want to root the new phone, and the previous one (the one you own now) was also rooted, you could use titanium backup as well to back up your apps and reinstall the them with all their data on the new device.

Here is BlueStacks which gives you exactly all you want. 100 times better than Emulator. I have seen my colleagues using WatsApp, playing Temple Run (not efficiently) in that. You can root it too.

This is due to the fact that by default non google-play applications are blocked by default in Android, as a security measure. To allow these to be installed go to (this may vary in wording across Android Versions) Settings > Security > Unknown Sources this allows things to be installed that are not form the known (Google Play Store) source. You ...

The solution is to ‘Disable’ the apps from the Android system settings and they will no longer appear in your Play Store updates list. E.g. for Google Currents: Settings > Apps > All > find ‘Currents’ - tap it, select ‘Disable’. The same applies to the all other listed apps in the question (with the exception of 'Google Play Newsstand’ which I couldn’t ...
