Your problem touches a feature of Android that sets it apart from other mobile OSes and is a very powerful one (see below): That's all about intents, activities and the back stack that contains your path of visited activities in order for each app. Basically an activity is a single GUI fullscreen window you see, for example the main activity when you ...

I was concerned about this as well and decided to decompile the app to find out what it's doing. Twitter receives SMS messages via a BroadcastReceiver in com.twitter.applib.client.SmsReceiver. Here is what the code looks like after decompiling it to Java with dex2jar and jd-gui. public class SmsReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver { private void a(Context ...

There don't seem to be any widgets that let you monitor twitter for certain keywords, but here's a workaround that might do the trick. Try an application like Meta widget. It can turn any webpage to a widget.

In the Twitter app... Tap the Overflow menu (three vertical dots) and choose "Settings" Tap the account you want to change Under "Notification Indicators" tap "Ringtone" Choose the Ringtone you want to use for Twitter notifications for this account

Some Twitter apps allow you to "retweet with comment" or "quote & reply" in which case you can remove the original username before retweeting. If your friend chose to do that before retweeting, you won't be able to see the original username. TweetCaster Pro has the "retweet with comment" option.

Touiteur has been updated today and now has filtering. Please note that this feature may just be the paid version. I'll update this answer with a link and QR code when I've confirmed those details. Edit: It would seem that filtering isn't a premium feature. The filtering can be found under the mute settings in Touiteur -> More -> Mute. You can choose to ...

Yes, there are lots of apps like Image Shrink Lite Resize Lite Share Image and many others, just search the market Instead of sharing to Twitter, just share to these apps, choose from a list of predefined sizes, and reshare to Twitter. You can do this from any apps that can share images to any apps that can receive shared images.

An app like Permissions can tell you the meaning of the different types of permissions. For receive text messages (SMS): Allows the app to receive and process SMS messages. This means the app could monitor or delete messages sent to your device without showing them to you.

As far as I have been able to tell, there is no official information on what this permission is for. I have seen this in another app in the last little while. The Google Hangouts app recently gained the SMS permission and uses it (in addition to displaying your phone's SMS messages in the app) to process phone number confirmation texts: the Hangouts app ...

Both Facebook and Twitter contact sync stopped doing anything useful sometime recently (ICS?). They no longer provide a meaningful between your phone contacts and the actions provided by those clients. I think this has to do with changes to the Android API that for whatever reason these companies have not adapted to. There is a stop-gap solution for ...

You could probably use On {x} for this. You should be able to configure it so that it sends a tweet the first time you unlock your phone each day. I've not used it much myself though so can't tell you exactly how. Another possible option would be using Tasker.

The Twitter app registers an intent filter for http and https URLs to twitter.com, to tell Android it can open those URLs itself. That's why you get the first chooser (the list of possible apps). However, it seems that the Twitter app can't actually understand those "redirect" links, so it asks for a web browser to handle the URL. That's why you get the ...

Since the anwer seems to be: "no there isn't", my workaround was to use an RSS-reader widget, and the following RSS URL: search.twitter.com/search.rss?q=keyword. I think its strange I have to go through such hoops, since Twitter provides a HTML-widget for exactly this purpose. I was expecting at least one Android app to mimic this functionality.

Not sure if this helps, but Slices for Twitter will let you tap on a link to open it up in the built-in web browser, then tap on the share button to bring up the list of targets for URLs, including Pocket. You don't have to wait for the page to finish loading before sharing the link to Pocket, which allows this process to be fairly quick. That's 3 total ...

Quick Settings has a separate "Notification Volume" which for me controls all of my apps notifications (although I have FB and Twitter notification off at the source). Another app I use is Quick Profiles for fast switching between preset profiles. This app also can control the "Notification Volume". I have a specific profile set for when I sleep that ...

1) App notifications use the Ringer volume for how loud the notification is played. 2) You could use an application like Locale or Tasker to automatically silence your Ringer volume during the night. Then you could create exceptions if you need for certain people to be able to call you during the night.

A number of 3rd-party "social" apps have this feature. Personally I use TweetDeck. When Internet connection is not available, it will save my tweet, and throw a notification saying that it will be sent when connectivity is re-established.

Yes, it is likely to be the problem. I suppose it's a hack of yours if these apps are on SD rather than internal memory. As the Android SDK mentions1, applications that use Service, AccountManager and Widget shoudl not be installed on SD card. The Facebook app has an AccountManager, a widget and a Service.

Many have tried. It's arguable whether anyone succeeded yet or not. The big ones are Motorola's MotoBLUR, HTC's SenseUI, Samsung's TouchWiz - they all try to bring together the disconnected social aspects of different applications such as e-mail, text messages, and various social networks. Each does it differently, with varying degrees of success. ...

Doesn't the x10 have very unique camera software (an original interface for viewing pictures)? I wouldn't know because I don't have one, but I thought that was the case. It looks like the camera software has some sort of bug at lines 124 and 202 in its GridActivity. Sending this error report to the manufacturer (Sony) along with how you got it (like Bryan ...
