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.

comment THL android wont allow number to connect
When you set it up on the iPhone, could you make a call to/from that phone? It seems as likely to be a problem with your carrier as the phone.

comment How to associate a specific link with an app?
@Madivad I don't understand the relevance of your link. It's explaining how the app author can open the link in their own app. As I said, this is something the app can do, but not something you can do yourself.

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.
