comment Do emulators benefit from Hyperthreading?
Hint: Check the /help/on-topic of an SE site before posting. I'm afraid Stack Overflow will reject it as well, as that place is for development (i.e. code-related) questions. But not really being active over there, I cannot tell for sure. Neither can I say whether there's a fitting "stack" at all…

comment Pay whatsapp for a android device from ios device?
That's rather not an Android specific question, and should better be addressed to Whatsapp service IMHO.

comment Drawing shape on button click using OpenGL in android
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?). Development questions are on-topic on our sister site Stack Overflow. You might also wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

comment Do emulators benefit from Hyperthreading?
Interesting question indeed, Tomasz – but I don't think this is the appropriate place for it, as it hits multiple off-topic categories: shopping recommendations, and not really being an Android-users-question (rather affecting Emulators in general I'd say) are two immediately jumping on me.

comment How to download a Google play book
That's one of the reasons I don't use Play Books at all. There are plenty of ebook readers available, and many sources of ebooks without DRM (e.g. my library), I prefer to stick wit those. As an author, ebooks I release are not DRM protected (even not on Amazon) for exactly the reason you named: I don't want to restrict my readers on where/how they want to read the books.

comment Difficulty in Choosing a target on building and running Android source code on OSX
Android specific: yes, but for users (as I wrote). A confusion that hits several people a day. I always recommend checking the /help/on-topic URL on an SE site before doing your first post on it ;) As for deleting: There should be a "delete" link right below the question text (or rather below the tags following it). Good luck with your issue!

comment push app from root adb terminal
/data is the internal storage, and /data/local is a kind of "temp directory" especially for things like this; I specifically chose a place available on all devices. No idea why cp failed. As for the crashes, it might help to investigate the logs (e.g. via adb logcat). I suspect dependencies (it might need another app/service to work).

comment How move applications from built-in memory to SD-card without root access?
The tag-wikis themselves give outlines, and in the case of app2sd explain the basic ideas. Have you checked e.g. the questions tagged app2sd for possible non-root solutions? I know they do exist, question is just which of them works with your device. See e.g. this answer (newer syntax), Move App to SD in Jelly Bean.

comment Android File Picker
It's specifically brash as you've been told before it's OFF TOPIC here. Such behavior does not encourage us (or anyone) to give (good) answers, just the opposite: it gives you a bad image, which lateron is hard to get rid of.

comment Why do I see adverts after closing WhatsApp?
You could check with e.g. Appbrain Ad Detector what apps have ad modules built-in. It's most likely safe to ignore "Admob" here, but things like "Leadbot" and the likes might do such. To further narrow down possible candidates, think which you might have installed about the time te described phenomenon started.

comment How move applications from built-in memory to SD-card without root access?
I've just added two tags to your questions. Please check the insufficient-memory tag-wiki plus the app2sd tag-wiki, they hold the information you need to get started on this. Then please return and answer your own question if solved, or edit it and describe what you've tried and were you're stuck. Thanks!

comment Why is the play store displaying same app twice under the My apps section
I've just read about a similar case; there uninstalling and re-installing solved the issue.

comment Can I use side buttons of my phone to turn (by holding) next/prev track without root?
Our default answer to ~50% of the questions might fit that: tasker has music control and can play with (some) buttons. Not sure about volume controls, but "there might be an addon for that" ;) (plenty of Tasker addons available).
