comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
I'm accepting your answer, because it brings argument, that may actually explain everything here. If app has no GUI, then putting icon / shortcut to it may be pointless. Thank you.

comment Auto turn on after power on for an Android-based device
Exactly! I plug-in charging cable on completely turned off device, it turns on and a nice battery charging animation appears.

comment Any application to scan non-standard QR codes
Update: No, NeoReader is not able to read MaxiCodes ("the other candidate"). It does not recognize them on screen / on paper and when such image is uploaded to NeoReader (an option to recognize an image from library), it crashes.

Thank you for a great answer, even though, it is for an off-topic question. BTW: "the other candidate" was already identified by me. It is MaxiCode.

I think this could be an answer.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
Plus: I wasn't too much surprised, that I can't see these two apps after checking Show Hidden Apps, because I've been to Nova's hidden apps list many times, from different points (for example from Nova Settings > Drawer > Hide Apps, suggested by @bmdixon). I can't even search them in app drawer, while app drawer's search goes through all icons, Nova have access to, no matter if they're hidden or not. As in previous comments, for some reason unknown to me, Nova doesn't see these two apps anywhere within itself. They're accessible only on system level.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
Yes and no. Yes, because you're right, that I was tapping in wrong place. After tapping on tab itself I found your options and checked Show Hidden Apps. No, because after doing this, I still can't see neither Sound Recorder nor Voice Search icons. For some reasons these two apps (maybe more) are completely not seen anywhere within Nova Prime and I can only list them in system level (in system settings). So, we're going back to my initial question -- what can be causing, that Nova Prime does not have any access to certain system apps and does not list them anywhere?

Sir, yes, sir! :> Take a look at an updated question. Thanks.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
When I open my app drawer, I don't see Apps and Widgets tabs, because I have already configured Nova Prime to suit my needs. I have five my own custom tabs and I have turned off Widget tab at all. When I tap three-dot menu button in app drawer, I can see Nova Settings, which assures me, that I'm actually using Nova Prime as main launcher! :> However, what concerns me the most, is that I don't see context menu items, you have on your screenshot, i.e. Show Hidden Apps and Edit Tab.... Instead, I have: Google Play and Nova Settings. This case begins to be really weird.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
Hm... strange. I had Show hidden apps option only in Nova Settings > Drawer > Hide Apps, you mentioned first, in three-dot context menu. Selecting this option does not changed anything (list get longer, but again, no apps were checked as hidden). I don't have Show hidden apps button at the bottom of the Add to Home Screen > Apps (I have only apps list and Select Multiple button), which is odd, as I seems to have newest version of Nova Launcher Prime.

No, this is not the case. I have a long list of apps there, but none of them is checked. I don't think, this could be the case, because -- if I get it right -- this controls only apps in drawer. This would not explain, why these apps are also missing from Add to Home Screen > Apps list.

comment Unable to copy files to Nexus 7 / Android KitKat
This question is about copying files natively, through Windows. It does not offer any resume functionality. Using 3rd party software with resumed downloads in my idea of solving this problem. But, that is not, what this question was about.

comment Force shutdown on a Galaxy Nexus?
Hm... My Galaxy Nexus, that I bought on May 2012 (so, before your question) once I press and hold Power Button, always shows shut down menu, which does include "Power Off" option. Your doesn't? What am I missing?

comment How do I remove an incorrect word from autocorrect?
+1 Great Googly One. I have exactly the same environment, i.e. Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.3. I went to Settings > Apps > All > Google Keyboard and all I see is: Force stopd (does nothing), Disable, Clear data and Clear cache. Plus long list of permissions. How did you managed to uninstall all updates (or uninstall anything) to this system service?

comment How do I remove an incorrect word from autocorrect?
On Android 4.3 and Samsung Galaxy Nexus this is not working at all. When I long-press incorrectly suggested word, all I see, are other suggested words. No sign of delete or edit option.

comment Looking for an MP3 player with playlist
Software recommendations-type like questions are not welcome to this site or any in the SE network. And that is probably, why your question got -1.

comment Should I accept 2,5 year old Samsung Galaxy replacement battery?
@DanHulme Sorry, for that. Here you go. Maybe this, this or this one. Basically, I assume, this is a manufacture date. So, the question remains: can 2,5 year battery be of any worth, even if shop sells it as "brand new" and gives 6 months warranty on it?

comment Split phone calls by day
Correct, but not exactly. "Sort by day" will only sort... by day. I have to summarize number of calls and total length myself. I'm more like looking for "split by day", which will sort by day and summarize, how many calls (lasting totally how long) I made each and every day.

comment Can I use OTG USB pendrive with Galaxy Nexus
One side question: Is there any way to determine, approximately how many devices with Android will require root to use USB OTG pendrive? I only need general answer. Is this something normal (70-90% devices requires this) or something unique (10-30% devices requires this or even Galaxy Nexus is a lonely exception).

comment Can I use OTG USB pendrive with Galaxy Nexus
Again, I was rather looking for an everyday newbie user solution. Not the one, that requires rooting or playing with terminal. So, while I'm grateful for your answers, the real answer to my question is (at least for me): "You can't".
