comment Tasker offline speech recognition
Hopefully it doesn't buffer your questions until a connection can be established – and then suddenly, and in the most inconvenient moment, starts answering aloud... #D // Couldn't find that either up to now. So if you find something, please don't forget to answer your own question :)

Something like this: Converting phone to SIP gateway?

comment Cannot download APK file on my phone
If you're developing anyhow, why not simply using adb install while the device is connected? Alternatively, copy the file to your device's SD card should do fine as well.

comment UIDs inconsistent error
My first guess would be the eToro Trader (com.etoro.mobileclient has mismatched uid). It might not be the only one, but from the log provided one with "permanent errors". If you can "live without for a while", try uninstalling that while in safe-mode. If that's not enough, do the same for the Facebook Messenger (com.facebook.orca) and Skout (com.skout.android). That's all visible with UID issues in your screenshot – though the last entry might indicate additional trouble.

comment group text messages being converted to MMS on samsung galaxy S3
That's a frequent question here already, Sharon – please use our search for answers. Especially see How can I prevent my device from automatically converting SMS to MMS? for how to avoid the issue altogether.

comment How to add menu button in Navigation bar
Can you elaborate a little more what you're asking for? A screenshot might help as well. Do you want to have the possibility to start an app from the notification area? Or are you talking of something inside an app?

comment Orkia PP555 Tablet: How to Factory-Reset
OK, updated it again (you've missed some places). While waiting for answers: if the reason is you're locked-out (I've just added that tag, as you've indicated this being the reason), you might wish to check with the related tag-wiki for alternative methods to get access to your device again by solving the lock issue hopefully without a full reset. Good luck!

comment How to set the home screen sideways
There is no "generic answer" to this, Bully. Check the settings of your homescreen app if you find something – if not, it might simply not support it. In the latter case, your only option is using an alternative launcher.

comment How to set the home screen sideways
1. the app must support auto-rotation (not all homescreens do). 2. for some homescreens, you must explicitely enable it in their settings. 3. According to the 3rd screenshot, your Android version is quite outdated :)

comment Orkia PP555 Tablet: How to Factory-Reset
Sure you're talking about hard-reset? That would be removing the battery or poking the reset-hole. No USB needed. Not possible via recovery mode. I bet you rather meant factory-reset?

comment Browser opens play store when tried to load certain link
I'm not aware of any real solution you could establish. If it's just one site, I'd recommend contacting their stuff. If they are not "cooperative", stop using the site – and tell them they'll lose visitors that way (like they've just lost you). Forcing visitors to a specific app is not the way to go. // An idea, though: Browsers like Opera Mini, which use a proxy to retrieve "compressed content", might be a possible alternative.

comment Where does Google Play store its ebooks on an Android device?
@hasen good point – added that fact to my answer. Obviously I was considering to many things "general knowledge" which are not :)
