I've been an Android user since 2009. I've helped to design parts of the Android operating system, and graphics drivers for Android phones. Now I work for an indie studio, helping Android users to get things done and have fun.

Check out our apps on Google Play.

Make the title explain the actual problem: the RAM usage is a red herring

comment Use an Android tablet as a Wacom drawing tablet for a PC?
@JSON Even when a layperson with no art background tries to sign their name with their finger on a touchscreen, the results are completely different from doing it with a real pen, even a biro that isn't pressure- or angle-sensitive. Sure, many users won't need the entire functionality of a graphics tablet, but they will need the precision and responsiveness, and to use it on a PC they'll definitely need to be able to point without clicking.

comment How to limit bandwidth usage
@Mansour That's true, each packet drop will cause the data rate to decrease, but it will then keep increasing until more packets are dropped. That's useful for traffic shaping in general, but as I said, the overall effect is to increase the total data use as seen by the carrier.

Guys, if you're going to VTC as "unclear", you really need to leave a comment saying what isn't clear. That's the only way I can improve the question for you.

comment How can I start GPS track logging from an intent?
That's a convenient way to start it, but in general GPS recording apps have a lot of optimizations, e.g. setting the update rate dynamically according to your speed, and only recording positions to the GPX file when they're a certain distance apart. I think your hacked-up Tasker script would use more battery and produce a larger file - and as you say, it would need some custom programming to turn the file into something you could view or use with another app.
