Unfortunately, when you get an android phone out of the box, no, there is no way to do that. However, if you're willing to root your phone, then you can use apps like "Apps Ops Starter" which essentially launch the hidden settings for you to use which would allow you to find Viber (or any other app) and see its permissions and deny them one by one.

I hava a Samsung S5. Before I charged my phone once per 24 or 48 hours and since a few days suddently the battery lasted only 4 to 8 hours. After several test I discovered the cause was a few corrupt images. I deleted the corrupt images and the problem was solved. I used this app to find the corrupt images.

You can try using: public abstract void onVolumeUpdateRequest (MediaRouter.RouteInfo info, int direction) direction is either positive or negative, depending on which button (or button end if the volume control is a toggle button). From here you can call the appropriate action out. Should work when you: import android.media.MediaRouter;

You can install an app like Root Uninstaller and remove any unwanted system apps from there.

Cases 1+3 show the app is currently running; basically, both are "task manager" views. Number 2 is rather related to "preferred apps" for a given action: if you e.g. have two web browsers installed, this decides which one is launched if you tap an URL. Number 4 is the "application manager". Usually, an "active force-stop button" should indicate a running ...

Yes you will have giving consent to post "things" to Facebook without seeing or approving them. I suggest getting a 3rd party app to help. SystemPanel App, a full feature task manager, or App Detective, find every detail about an app. The first is a paid app, but there is a free version available. Between these 2 apps you will be able find the culprit, ...

Eventually I've used Apex Launcher that can be easily downloaded directly from several sites or with K-droid, so it's a good option for people that don't use Google Play / Google Account. Among its features there are options to change the screens count (I've set it to 1) and increase the grid size. Vembu pointed out the Nova Laucher, which I was unable to ...

Try this: Quickly press OK on the error dialog so you can follow the rest of the steps. Navigate to Settings > Apps > All. Scroll down to Phone and click it. Clear cache for it.

Inbuilt apps that you deleted/disabled will be restored. Any apps that you installed from Google Play and weren't pre-installed on your phone wont't be restored. You will have to redownload those apps again which you want to use again. Also give this a read and the linked question inside.

According to tnagy on the topic of JRD MMITest: This is the manufacture test of your Android phone's internal components. It will perform a check on the main components like LCD display, sound, etc. You should be able to disable the app if you do not want this app to perform regular checks. From Settings > Apps, slide all the way to the right until ...

Stock homescreen doesn't support locking/pin the apps permanently. You could try Launchers for this purpose. Solo launcher, Nova launcher, etc are some of those. Locking desktop is possible in these launchers. AppLock from domobile does your second job.

Try another software called ad away that has the option to white list apps. Ad block doesn't seem to have the white listing option. https://f-droid.org/repo/org.adaway_51.apk

No, it isn't. Even if you were running Linux on an ARM-based system, or only wanted to run apps for Android-x86, so that you didn't need an emulator, you'd still have the problem that the GNU userspace doesn't have the same facilities and libraries that Android has. The Android framework, the standard library used by all Android apps, doesn't exist for ...

Because if the app is storing your data, it's responsible for keeping it secret. To take an example, let's say there's an app to store something you'd rather keep quiet, such as your collection of Jason Donovan albums. This app would have a database with the relevant information inside, and this database is private to the app. No other app can read it ...

Apps' private data directories aren't visible over the USB connection to your PC. It would complicate error handling in apps a lot if you had to worry about users making unexpected changes to your data files, so Android doesn't let you do this, to make it harder for you to screw up your phone. You can access them from the phone directly, but only if the ...

I am sure if you have tried heading over to the Facebook app over the Google PlayStore and have read their description over their you would have got your answer anyway,you can report to the bugs over the Facebook Help Centre. Note: You need to log yourself over the Facebook account in order to do so.

For now, you should go to Google Play and get an app that can force uninstall any app. Then, you need to root your phone. ( As system apps cannot be removed without hacking ) After you obtain root, you can get rid of any app. You could even delete the Android System app. But you shouldn't. I deleted Facebook from my phone. It was being forced on to my phone. ...

Some apps use the "staged rollout" feature of Google Play, which means that not all users get the update at the same time (I'm not entirely sure on exactly how it distributes the updates, but it does). So no, if the update is not shown in Google Play, the only way to get it is to wait. However, APKMirror provides (some) APKs which you can manually install ...

This is called "delta update" and Google already does this on Play Store. These delta upgrades, which save time and bandwidth when updating larger apps by only downloading the actual changes (rather than the entire program), [...] Emphasis mine. Basically, instead of downloading the whole package, Play Store will instead only download and apply part ...

There's an app called SDFix on the Play store, but you will need root to run this. Running that should let you write to external SD cards again. Link:

It's happening because application download from the store first heads over to the internal storage of the device which I guess isn't enough, what you can do is try moving some of the application installed/music/pictures over to the SD card in order to free up the internal storage. You can also try clearing the Dumpstate/logcat to try freeing up some space ...

Rebooting my HTC ONE/Jellybean fixed the problem, after that all my apps updated and the ones that didn't install started to download & install etc. Do the obvious things to rectify a problem before jumping to conclusions or otherwise messing up your device. Reboot, check app loading permissions, memory available....etc. Good luck to all!

Long press the notification and it will show you what app sent the notification. Next, go to Settings > Apps and look for the app. Once you click it you will have the option to disable notifications, or to diable the whole app.

What network are you using? Certain ones offer a data saving feature on the LTE networks that allow apps like Facebook and Gmail to. opperate on 4G without counting against your data plan. perhaps this is a glitch in the network restrictions?

You need to install Busybox to be able to update the configuration file. However, on my Nexus 5, I haven't been able to get past "Updating configuration file ... done" after the fact. It could be incompatibility or some settings need to be tweaked first. I'll report back if I fix it.

No there is no activity log but if you go on the play store and view all apps you can see all the apps youve downloaded and it will tell you if they are installed or not. Let me know if this helped
