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!

If there are certain apps you don't want your kids to use, you can use something like Perfect App Lock . With this tool, you can password protect any app/setting on your android device.

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

Questions like these were made a lot of times, and require the repartition of the internal memory. As you can read in this question , this requires a custom ROM. I own an Huawei Y300 too, and I've found lots of ROMs and information there

You might wish to take a look at my list of emulators ­– the ones you will need are to be found at the end of the page. I personally use android-x86 in VirtualBox, which works fine – but you might have different demands. For just one app any of them might be a little "overkill" – and you might find it easier to install a VNC-Server on your Android device to ...

Bluestack is the best so far,but i dont think it will run on a 1gb ram pc. as for YouWave you need a few bucks$$$ to use it. So its not a free tool. but there is another tool that might work well on your p.c oh yeah its called Andy its the best free alternative to bluestack so far.

You need either Bluestacks or Youwave. I think Bluestacks can not be installed on your PC because of less RAM (minimum of 2gb recommended). So Youwave is your only option. It is easy to install and use. Click here to download YouWave for Android on PC

-Clearing junk depends on the memory limitations of the device.If you have more memory(4Gb or more then you can avoid it but at some point of time you have to clean) then you don't need to clear the junk files as the device will simply store it on board.But if the device's on board memory is less <=2Gb then you have to clear the junk files quite often.(In ...

It only hides the notification when the app creates it. It doesn't affect what the app might do in the background or stop the app spending battery and data to create it in the first place.

The way to go with this is having your device rooted and then install Adaway app. You can download from f-droid.org Make sure you download the Adaway apk and not the F Droid app. Once installed it modifies Android's hosts file and you won't see ads ever. + Adaway is great, but it's power is dependent from the Hosts-Lists you use.

How can that happen? Some Android user in the world receives the Store update in its rooted device, then get the apk and uploads it to Aptoide. Google Play Store updates automatically.

If the apps are missing from your phone: Settings>Apps>All Apps, then scroll down to whichever apps are missing from your app drawer (eg. Phone/Dialer, Messaging).

Actually the app seems to work just fine. I am getting matches, can chat with them, so it looks like Tinder's error message is erroneous. In any case no obvious functionality appears broken.

Unfortunately the response is "it depends". If the modem is used by the Radio Interface Layer (RIL), i.e. it is in use by the system, no, unless you stop the ril daemon. You can stop it by using the "service stop rild" command from the android shell. Stooping the RIL will prevent all functionalities depending by the phone framework to work: receiving, ...

Android Stock OS doesnt allow you to send apk via bluetooth. Use apk manager or apk extractor as they allow you to send it. Also you can rename the .apk extension by using file manager to anything like .jpg then send it via bluetooth and change it back to apk and it will work.

The Settings > Battery menu is a cumulative history that gets reset only when you re-charge the battery to 100%. That means all of the usage history is retained through the charge cycle (which includes any partial re-charges). The closed apps' prior battery usage (as a percentage of the total charge used since a full re-charge) should gradually decline as ...

The Settings-->Battery menu doesn't show how much battery is being used at that moment, rather how much has been used (usually since the device was fully charged or turned on). The reason the apps show up is because before they were closed they used some battery.

As RossC said, yes it depends upon the developers how they keep the logic to detect the uniqueness. As I am too a dev (Windows App) and my preferred way is to keep the device id's over the cloud. So whenever the device gets internet on, it syncs with our servers for prior installations and it becomes easy for users to use it on multiple devices. Other easy ...

The app may well leave a folder behind with some data in it. You would have to go and manually remove the folder(s) to ensure all data is removed. If you reinstall the app it will check that folder and know it was installed. An easy example is The Bard's Tale, the game. You install about 20 Mb of a file from the Play Store and open the game. The game ...

No, there's currently no way to do what you want with an app. You'd need to develop a custom ROM to suit your requirements (or pay someone to do it, of course). The new Lollipop version of Android has some features to enable kiosk-mode-type applications, so it may be that some apps might come along in future to enable this kind of use. Slightly off the ...

Apps are safe to Disable when they provide an option of disabling them in app manager. They won't affect the performance of the device (and disabling some apps may increase battery back-up). For example apps from Google like Newsstand and Books, Google Music, Play Games, Google+ etc are all safe to disable. Also apps from LG like Live Wallpapers are also ...

Sorry to tell you that no app can really filter the blue light emitted from your digital screen.

Not all apps are safe to delete or disable. Most are, though. If you are able to remove an app that came with your phone, it is safe to do so. If you can only freeze the app, then it is in the /system directory, that is why you can not remove it. You can disable nearly any app without bad consequences - but if other apps start to crash, try to re-enable ...

Apparantly not. The Google Play Help documentation states that you have to uninstall the apps from your device. Either via the Play Store app, or via settings.
