comment How to refresh a web page in Chrome (Ctrl+F5 analogue) on a device without menu button?
This question has much better answers on StackOverflow (which goes to show how over-splitting the community doesn't help; Android is close enough to programming that it's not worth making a separate site for; Chemistry vs. Math - sure.)

This no longer works in Chrome 47.

comment Why do so many applications try to get the SIM and network operator name?
@Izzy: would it be possible that some app building IDE generates boilerplate code that makes those calls regardless of what the app does?

comment What can an app do with the “USE ACCOUNTS ON THE DEVICE” permission?
@pzkpfw: I've updated the answer to include the world "almost" because for many malicious use cases, the attacker wouldn't want to change the password, but rather quietly misuse the account.

Included the "Almost" clause to respect the spirit of the message but stay factually accurate

Do you mean that some app generators might just dump code in the app or libraries that makes those calls?

comment Why do so many applications try to get the SIM and network operator name?
@Firelord: not at all? I'm asking why apps would be interested in the SIM operator's name. Why would MyFitnessPal care I'm using AT&T or Verizon, when the app could be running just fine on a Wi-Fi only device?

@beeshyams: my question is more specific than the one you pointed to, which itself is a dupe.

comment Is it possible to write to a device's clipboard using ADB?
The reason you need to doubly-escape the string is that there are two shells: your shell, and the adb shell. However, I suspect this will fail for other characters that have special meaning in the shell, like the ampersand.
