When you run the Photos app for the first time, it asks you if you want to display your pictures from Google Drive in the gallery. It also states that the pictures will stay in Google Drive unless you move them. I haven't (yet) found anywhere in the Settings that lets you change your mind. If I do, I'll put up a screenshot.

As the tilt function is working fine in other games. It is dependent on the games that you play and its support on the Bluestack app player. Once the game is supported it will show a popup of the controls that can be used to control the actions and mimic the accelerations. So for example when playing a game like Labrynth Lite, after installing and opening ...

The way the Google Play Store works is that they simply tell the device to download the app from the playstore. The device then initiates the download directly from the play store. It is difficult to replicate this, so instead what applications tend to do is send the apk itself rather than just a link to the apk. AirDroid is one application that lets you ...

For the same reason computers do, which you alluded to: New OS versions, and new software, all need more, with time. Every new main version of an OS or app is built with a more recent generation of devices in mind. They expect more RAM, and therefore use more, they expect faster processors, and therefore do more, etc. Over time, the demands of the same ...

Google doesn't allow a free app to switch to paid status. So if you download a free app and they later choose to charge for it, they'd have to do so via an in-app purchase, in which case there's nothing you can do about it beyond raising a stink to the developer and Android blogs. Something else developers regularly do is make a SECOND app available on the ...

The only hardware buttons that can be used by apps (to launch other apps or start a recording) are the “camera” button on the device and the “media” button(s) on the headset. You’ll need a sound recording app that support it, or use an automation app like Automate with its Media button and Audio record blocks.

App developers decide what information to be kept in "data" and what to be kept in "cache". Usually, "data" is used for account info, settings, saved activity data, game scores, and whatever is need to be kept permanently.

No - not yet.... I'm restricting my reply to answering the question rather than yet more discussion about the pros & cons of ratings, filters and sorting.

I find it quite annoying that there is no easy way to sort the reviews of an Android app It is because Such ordering would've been useless to separate the cream from the crop.

Yes, and no. Android apps are not decompressed into the file system when it needs to run. Instead, they are selectively decompressed and read into memory/ram by the Dalvik virtual machine. This decompression is a very simple, quick, non-processor-intensive process, so it does not add any real overhead to the system. On first install, there is some ...

In general: Cache is temporary files. One example might be thumbnails for contacts in a social media app. These can be cleared without any major effect — the app can just download them again when it needs to — and if space is low the Android OS may remove cache files itself. Data is the "important" information. This might include credentials ...
