I use an alarm app every day called "Gentle Alarm", from Mobitobi. There is a trial that has one limitation of not being able to set an alarm for one certain day. This app will seem a little too complicated for many, but with a small amount of thought at first, it is very easy to use; it just has a lot of features. I only use a subset of them. It uses ...

I'll answer your question base on my understanding. what ive understand is that "your" phone will be the one sending the messages to the basic phone inside odc? or if you have any other application responsible with sending of SMS you'll need an SMS gateway so you can send SMS to other phone.

File Manager (Explorer) will support your requirements. For seeing the folder size you have to long press on folder and see details. It support root mode also.

ES File Explorer supports all your requirements. Once installed, turn on the Root Explorer option from the side menu.

The app Disk Usage is not quite a file explorer, but it's ideal for seeing where your device's storage is used. It shows a hierarchical view of directories by how much storage they take up. You can use it without root to show your external storage, or with root to examine the internal filesystem and apps' private data.

No replacing possible . Factory reset will clean all apps and data. The only possibility is re installing. Next time backup your apps and data.

QR Droid Private (version 5.3.3) does not ask for Contact List permission. After scanning a QR Vcard, the app offers to add it to your list and fills in the contact form. It is up to the user to press "Done". A common sense solution, which makes me suspicious of the real intentions of all the apps that ask for contact permission.

No, calls don't work that way. They don't go through the same network interface as internet data, and they're treated completely differently by the modem. Phone networks are circuit-switched, not packet-switched like IP, so there aren't any "packets" to examine.

There's EPUB3 Reader available on F-Droid and Github (not on Google Play – though an app using the same package name exists there, it's not the same, but obviously based on the original developers engine; long story behind that, not fitting here). Its app description explicitely mentions this feature: parallel texts (e.g., original text and its ...

Is it possible that you are swiping sideways? the contacts app is on the left of the lockscreen, the phone app on the right, and to unlock you must swipe up

Further to answer from @PratapPatil who has given the Android details. This is a convention in programming, specifically here Java. The Java Tutorials package details give details and examples. With programmers worldwide writing classes and interfaces using the Java programming language, it is likely that many programmers will use the same name for ...

Every android app has access to a file space in the /data partition that is private to the app. This is where the sqlite databases and user settings (shared preferences) reside. Developer of the app does not have to worry about the naming convention or the location of the files they want to store as far as this private space is concerned. However, when it ...

You should already have it pre-installed and enabled on your phone. Try saying "OK, Google" from the home screen. The steps here should give you an idea of how to enable it if it doesn't work.

It highly depends on what device you have, because of different ROM and launcher variations. You may download a different (3rd party) launcher from the Play Store and easly lock its layout: GO Launcher and ADW support this. I don't know, maybe Nova also.

Nothing much. As long as it has the latest OS (e.g. Android KitKat 4.4) and it's by a reputable organisation who will guarantee you updates, you should be fine. Specifications usually don't matter. Once you have your Android smartphone, configuring it up for development is easy. Just tap on the Build Number in Settings > About seven times (you will see a ...

Basically any android phone will work, however I would not get one of the cheap ones that is running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). I'm not sure where you're from, but if you can get it, I would recommend either the Moto E or Moto G. Decently spec'd entry level phones, running the latest Android version. They'll run pretty smooth, and get updates in the ...

um....free up space? "insufficient space" means that the memory on your device is running out; to download an app (which actually does take up memory!) you need to uninstall some other apps, or delete some pictures/video from the memory. Alternatively, you might want to look into getting an SD card for external memory, and either put apps, videos, or both ...

After formatting both Ext and Int SD Card, it is not possible to recover, as the files are spreaded over both locations. Nowadays games' sizes can be in Gigs, so developers, instead of consuming internal memory, prefer move the game data to external cards if they are found. We call it app2sd. Its availble beyond Android 2.2 Froyo. So IMO the game might be ...

You should follow the developer's step-by-step instructions. To summarise, if you downloaded a zip file, first unzip it (using any zip file app) to get to the .ttf or .otf file, then click that file to open it in Phonto, which will add the font.

I developed WiFi FTP Server, which should solve your problem. I would recommend that you put the phone in wifi-tether mode and then transfer files.

No, it wouldn't make a lot of difference to the battery life, and it's just as likely to increase power consumption as to decrease it. The screen would still draw the same amount of power. All that you'd be saving is that the GPU wouldn't have to do as much work to shade pixels (i.e. determine the colour of each individual pixel) - but that would come at the ...

As of July 2014, I've found the following options for SD card encryption: Boxcryptor - not open source; developed by German company; supports sync with cloud storage; unclear if they've received a backdoor request cryptonite - open source; supports mounting TrueCrypt volumes; no backdoor request yet

Well, It might be that you have a lot of stuff that filled up your storage. Deleting a little might not help. Try deleting some stuff like, videos you made from camera, apps you never used, or other. If your not comfortable with it, then you have to try get an SD card. It can be your only solution.

There might be mainly these two possibilities 1) either the device didn't have the sufficient memory 2) ADB Connection Time out error To solve 1) clear you temporary memory, un install application or clear un wanted cache 2) go to preferences->Android->DDMS and increase you ADB connection time out according to your need mine is 11000

Most of these permissions are used by Google Now and the new features they will be bringing out after Google I/O and the upcoming Android L Release. I'm not sure about why they need a lot of these permissions, but I will explain the ones that I know about. Feel free to edit the answer to improve it. I have listed all the sub permissions as listed in the ...

Since you don't have a dialer app in the tablet, Ali Kabiri's answer can't be directly used. But there's a way to get into a mode where you can enter these "service codes". See this blog post for images. Open the Contacts app Exit the initial setup if it pops up Go to Menu -> Settings Long-press the blank space in the bottom of the screen, in the middle ...

You can dial *#*#sellmore#*#* or *#*#73556673#*#* and you will not see the demo mode anymore, but a normal retail phone doesn't have demo mode activated... and you have to consider that demo-activated phones doesn't have warranty. Edit: as Onik said, if your tablet doesn't have dialer application installed,So you have to access the service menu for ...

I think you need this Root your phone and install the following app from play store by Famous Developer Chainfire https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.cf3d then change the setting to grayscale

A launcher will not put the whole system in grayscale, only your home screen. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has a true grayscale function you can enable system wide. If you don't want to buy a Samsung Galaxy S5 then try CF.Lumen https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.lumen It can color the screen to a specific tint. As a side effect the ...

As far as my knowledge goes when there is any app installed through the Play Store(through your Gmail Account) the app gets listed under My Apps>Installed apps. So instead of downloading it again from your mail separately (the apk file) you can directly download the apps through the installed my apps in your device(under options from the play store on your ...

There's no built-in function that does this on an android phone. The bast way to achieve this is to install a custom launcher. Check on the Play Store, there are a bunch of them.

(If you've got adb enabled on your tablet and installed on your PC, skip the next two paragraphs) If you've only been replacing apks, you'll need to enable Developer Settings (Settings -> About tablet -> scroll down to "Build number" and tap seven times). Then, go back, and into the developer options panel, and scroll down to the "debugging" section. Enable ...

With an installation of the official Android SDK, virtual devices are available to you (so you don't have to use Bluestacks). You can simply install them via adb to your virtual Android device and test them there. You can customize every aspect of the device, ranging from resolution, hardware buttons, modems, and software. If you are developing using ...

Yes, such apps are genuine. I am not familiar with Kik, but assuming it is similar to way2sms, they gain advertising revenue from page views. Kik mentions having over 120 million users and way2sms has 40 million+ users. For example for the 40 million users of way2sms, assuming that the advertising rate is $0.01 per 1000 page views (I'm not sure about the ...

What you're looking for is called "Permission Manager". While Android itself does not (yet?) provide such itself, there are several of them available, my list holds some of them. There are different approaches. While some simply "deny access" (which might cause an app to crash, if the dev didn't take "revoked"/"not granted" permissions into account, and ...

I'm afraid not. These bundled apps are part of the ROM image, so the app updates are part of the system update. When you install an update, it just copies the data wholesale into the phone's system partition: it doesn't install apps one by one. For this reason, there's no way to filter out individual apps from the update. You can't even remove those files ...

A search for "mysql" on the stores can answer this: there are several packages available, usually together with a web server and PHP. Best candidates are probably AndroPHP and Palapa. My list of web servers with scripting support also have some of them (e.g. the two I mentioned), together with links to reviews, video demos, etc – which might make your ...

there are two ways for something similar if all you want is black background and white text for absolutely all sites, go to about:config and disable use page colors. then set background and foreground colors to what you want. if you require a more complex stylesheet, install stylish add on, and either use your css locally or upload to the site the ...

I guess that's because whatsapp stores attachments on their database with its own checksum (every file can be represented by an alphanumeric sequence of characters called like this). When you try to upload a file whose checksum is already on their database, they just use the uploaded copy of the file. This leads to several advantages. Indeed, preventing ...

As geffchang has suggested, there are some widgets that can show a thumbnail/screenshot of the website, but it's not possible to have a fully working, interactive view like you get in a web browser. Home screen widgets don't run like normal apps: instead, the widget provider tells the home screen app what layout the widget should have, from a set list of ...

I thought proprietary software can not be distributed alongside a GPLv2 Linux kernel which Android runs on top of. No, the so-called "viral" nature of GPL doesn't apply to things that are merely distributed together: it only comes into play when statically linking GPL and other code into a single binary. Including non-free kernel modules and non-free ...

It depends on router to router, like I have a Belkin router, in which I can set up MAC ADDRESS Filtering. To set up this, open your router default page (might be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1). If it asks for password and username, first try leaving it blank, if this does not log you in, try putting admin in both user name and password, if this doesn't log ...

Aptoide serves a bunch of repositories in APT style (which some of you might know from Debian and its derivates). They also have their own Android client used to access (search and install apps from) them. For checking available apps, any web browser can be used as well – simply point it to m.aptoide.com. According to Wikipedia, they serve more than 120,000 ...
