comment Custom Launcher that supports Google Now integration?
How about if I rephrase it? My problem is "I want to be able to say 'OK Google' to start google now, and use a custom launcher at the same time. Is this possible?"

comment Quick way to enter three dots (ellipsis)?
Quicker way to switch to Swype: long-press any text input box and a menu should pop up with "Change input type" or something like that.

comment Where are my photos saved?
No luck. Same as /mnt/sdcard/dcim. I think the two are symlinked.

comment Is there any way to crop widgets in HTC Sense?
@Webs: Long-click on the widget. It should turn yellow and show a little drag tab in the bottom right. (Then, if you have the free version, you get a nice annoying message about how that feature is only available in the paid version)

comment How can I edit or remove people from the favourite contacts widget on my HTC Legend?
@therefromhere: It must be a bug in 2.1. I'm running 2.2 on my Incredible, and "Favorites" is listed in the groups, so to remove them I just un-check the box when editing the contact.

comment How can I edit or remove people from the favourite contacts widget on my HTC Legend?
@Casebash: The phone calls them "Favorites" but if you pull up contacts in Gmail, the group will be called "Starred in Android" there.

comment Is there any way to crop widgets in HTC Sense?
If I decide I don't like Launcher Pro, will I be able to uninstall it and get my Sense UI and widgets back?

comment What is the right way to close apps in Android?
I have noticed a couple apps that do eat through a lot of battery in this paused state. Namely, the latest version of Google Maps and a game I've got called GalaxIR. So keep an eye out for bad offenders and be sure to close those ones properly.

comment Can I get a shortcut to the Downloaded Files folder?
Are you talking about downloads in the Market, or files downloaded from the internet (ie. in the browser)?

I've come across one such ROM, but I couldn't find it again after this question popped up.

comment How can you uninstall an app that you didn't install on your Droid?
@Arda Xi: The guy who wrote that article didn't really understand what "open" means. But, yeah, this is a valid gripe with the cell carriers; It's basically permanent advertising on your device, and it's annoying as hell.

comment What Lost Phone finder do you use and why?
Your question should be a little more specific. What about MobileDefense don't you like or what feature are you looking for? As it is now, your question isn't much different than "What's your favorite X app?", which is really more discussion based rather than Q&A.

comment Cell standby and Phone idle
Android system refers to the operating system itself: app management, opening and closing apps, boot time, etc.

comment Is there a shortcut to the taskmanager on HTC tattoo
Though this is on an Incredible. I assume the menus are similar, especially since they're both HTC phones, but it may be a little different on your Tattoo.

Looks like a less expensive alternative to Locale?

comment How do I stop from getting notified twice when I get a text to my Google Voice number?
@Rohan: I think you have the option between the app's notifications or SMS, but it's a trade off. With the former, as you said, you have to be where you have data and the app must be running. But with the latter, you are using SMS counting towards your cell plan's limit. Conceivably, you can use a cell plan with data but no SMS by using GVoice for texts.

comment Voice action “Set alarm…” doesn't work on HTC Desire
I don't see "Set alarm..." in the list of Voice Actions (google.com/mobile/voice-actions). Are you sure it is one?
