Facebook started forcing this change a couple of months ago. There's nothing anyone can do about it. I find it rather annoying myself which is why I switched to a Facebook wrapper app like Swipe It has a workaround for this behavior. I suggest you do the same.

You cannot run two instances of app with same package name because when you try to install it out of the box because the package installer checks if an instance of the package you are trying to install is already present and if present asks if you want to update the existing app. You can however change the source code of an existing app to fool the system ...

Manual methods might be tricky here. I'd recommend taking a look at Greenify, which will take care for such apps automatically (after you've told it so – you're the boss after all ;) Greenify (source: Google Play; click images for larger variants) As the screenshots show, Greenify can "hibernate" apps automatically when the screen is off (and it can do ...

The Google keyboard has a "newline" key (looks like an arrow with a 90 degree angle) that appears only when you enter "shift" mode (eg when you want to key in a capital letter). In this mode, the emoji smiley face key changes to a newline key. On some ROMs, you can set an option to change between the emoji key and the newline (aka enter) key, from within ...

For what it's worth, Facebook has removed the contacts sync functionality.

As of now, there is no official way to see your Facebook friends on your phone's contacts app. There might be some hacks to get it done though, with some risky apps, which I strongly discourage using. Facebook has developed an app called Facebook Hello as an alternative contacts app. Download it from Google Play Store or APK Mirror. It is actually country-...

Try using https://mbasic.facebook.com It's not as pretty and you have to click "See Older Messages" and "See Newer Messages" a lot, but it's quite functional and fast.

If you don't want to install another app, there's a way around it. Although not elegant, you can tell Chrome to "Request desktop site" from the device's menu button. Have to manually change the URL from m.facebook.com to www.facebook.com afterwards, and the site is, as expected, large and unwieldy. But it works. I've just installed the Adblock Browser as ...

Just realized I was responding to the duplicate question, but here's another solution: Use Adblock Browser. It's a free browser that disables a lot of ads, and even though some mobile sites might act strange (which is why I still use Chrome), it stops facebook from opening up the Play Store. Hope that helps. Edit: I've been told that other mobile browsers, ...

No, not officially, although you may be able to find the APK on a collection site like http://www.apkmirror.com Developers often use Google Play to manage beta distribution because it gives them some semblance of control over the distribution and upgrade of the application. Often beta applications are not available outside of this distribution channel.

If you are a rooted user, use any firewall app (plenty of them are available at Play Store). Some of them I know of are Droidwall, AFWall+, etc. Also, you can use Greenify to hibernate apps which are not in use. I hope combination of any Firewall and Greenify will definitely solve your problem.

I've found out that it occurs only when developpers options are enabled :/ As a developper, I need to enable those sometimes and the problem appear again. So now I just disable them when I don't need it and it solve the issue. If anyone can explain it I would be interrested. Thx anyway

This is an alternative solution. You could try 3C Toolbox. This is a veritable toolbox that can do a lot of things. For your need, you need to access DISCLAIMER: The non-root validity of this method cannot be verified by me or @beeshyams. This was confirmed to be working without root in an earlier Android version.

About user-agent If you're referring to hiding your user-agent, this can easily be done. Your user-agent is a short piece of text your browser automatically transmits to the server when you request for a web page. This helps the server identify the browser and operating system you're running and possibly serve up the most appropriate page (e.g. a mobile-...

Android 4.3 - If you're running Android 4.3, it's a hidden built-in app (hidden, because it wasn't finished, but working).
