comment Stay connected to specific Wifi which has no internet
Hey Denis, this is annoying as hell. When I tell my device to stay on one connection, I expect it to respect my wishes, not play the "Me thinks me smarter than U dumb user" card.

comment Why won't Android switch between wi-fi and 3G seamlessly?
@MarijnvdZaag there are some techniques to "keep" (mind the quotes) the connection alive when switching networks, but that means using some tricks to recognize server/client even when IP changes. Read about REST, that ott-- mentioned above. But as a rule of thumb, switching IP (or gateways) means re-connectiong all the services. Some are just more seamless than others

@ott-- but the specific APP must implement REST. Not the case for the vast majority of apps as of this writing.

No android update will sove a problem that is a) not a problem and b) not related to android.

comment How do I defrag my Android device?
And given the amount of malicious adware apps in the Play Store these days, you should be wary of installing anything, much more these "performance apps".

comment How to set a device-wide in-app-purchase block?
@ak11234 it is already set, but I want something that blocks the app from even forwarding to the play store.

comment A Windows PC software is pushing its app onto my android devices. How can I avoid it?
@AndrewT. on second thought, maybe keeping the app out of the title is a good idea, to not sound like an attack on the app.

Avast is hijacking AUTHENTICATION info from the browser. Very nice to know. It is a good think they keep it ethical-ish (oh wait)...

@AndrewT. originally I intended to keep the software name anonymous, but since then the disucssion moved into disclose. Now I think you are right.

@GiantTree the devices were never connected to the PC in the previous of following days. And the installation notification for the antivirus app had Google play's icon.

I would rather leave the antivirus software unnamed if possible (I am not attacking it), but if the community requests, I have no objections on sharing it.

comment Transferring pdfs from computer to android
I think @Izzy left bluetooth out because not all computers are bluetooth-enabled (even though the usb bluetooth caps cost $2). But welcome to Android Enthusiasts.

I think this device is not the galaxy-s, but the galaxy-sl. if so the tagging should be adjusted. gsmarena.com/samsung_i9003_galaxy_sl-3761.php

comment How can I deny “android:keepScreenOn” to a misbehaving app?
I was daydreaming yesterday, I think what we need is an app called "No you Can't", that would deny everything to apps (subject to users allowing stuff on a per-app basis. Its icon would be that megamind poster. Seriously, users need more POWAAAAA

comment Google Search App Draining Battery on KitKat
I think I missed that, good to know. It is a mess because the app name is the same name as the API feature that google took down, and why can't apps write to SD card anymore, dammit google, stop taking down stuff and start to police your app shop more. And now I digressed by a mile.[

@MrPablo, I am sorry, my bad for making a huge confusion between keepScreenOn and wakeLock (they are related but two different things). greenify would've worked if it was just a wakelock problem, you are correct.
