An Android, iOS and C# developer by day and a Linux enthusiast by night. I also enjoy web development (mostly Python), video games, chess, soccer, and voiding warranties.

I currently own a Nexus 5, a Nexus 10, and a Nook HD. I generally run a slightly self-modified version of CyanogenMod on my Nexus devices.

comment Delete Gmail emails older than X days
This doesn't seem like it's connected to Android, particularly since you sound like you're potentially looking to write a cron job on a server to do it for you. Perhaps you could edit your question to clarify if this indeed an Android-related issue you're facing.

comment No previous song button in Lollipop?
@Derek: I haven't seen that myself. The keypad only appears if I swipe up. I haven't tried when the music controls were the only notification, though, because I always have Tasker and BitTorrent Sync running (as in my screenshots above). Sounds like a possible bug to me as well.

comment Installing problem on my android
We're going to need more specifics to help you. How are you trying to install them? Are you getting an error message, and if so, what does it say? Please edit your question and provide us with as much context as possible. We're complete strangers to your situation: we need as much information as you can give us.

comment why wont my nexus 10 hold a charge?
It could be that your battery or some other piece of hardware has died, unfortunately. Have you tried different chargers or cables just to rule that out? It sounds like it would likely not help, but may be worth doing if you can.

comment Problems in referencing resources
@MikeM: Generally we just try not to migrate questions that need work, because that creates a situation where the question could end up getting closed on the other site. An alternative would be for the OP to edit this question with some specifics, and then have it migrated. Had that happened before I saw this then I would have migrated it, but at this point it'll be faster for the OP to just repost (since editing this one will mean it has to wait here until it gets migrated by a mod/other users; reposting can be done at their convenience).

comment Problems in referencing resources
I would recommend simply posting a new, more detailed question on Stack Overflow, if you decide to go that route. As noted, they're almost certainly going to need to see some specifics (like your code) in order to give you adequate help. Specific error messages would likely be useful as well.

comment Busybox Commands in Android Application
It sounds like you're writing an app, but...this is pretty vague. If you are looking for development help, then you'll want to look at resources outside this site. Android Enthusiasts is for questions related to using Android, not developing for it. If that's not your intent here, then please edit your question to provide some additional clarity and context. One sentence is rarely enough to explain your situation so that someone on the outside can help you.

comment Showbox app not casting on Lollipop (5.0)
You would likely be best served by contacting the developer of the app.

comment Lollipop update on Nexus 4?
The launcher (or, more generically, the currently focused app) definitely influences this. Nova launcher lets you toggle the transparency on and off, for example. I would wager your launcher is the culprit here. Especially since your second example is the design of the folders, which is absolutely controlled by the launcher.

The answers in Downgrading Nexus 7 Android 4.4.2 to 4.2 would apply to your situation as well.

comment How to view email in “Combined View” in 5.0 Lollipop
The Gmail app has never supported this in the past, so I would wager that there is no way to do what you're looking for (aside from using a different mail client).

comment Trying to set up SSH with shared key, but the server is not recognizing the device's key
Are you sure it's even looking at the /data/.ssh directory for the key? That seems like kind of an odd place for it to go since it's not a directory user processes could access without root. Are you basing this setup on some sort of instructions or documentation? Maybe it would help if we could see the steps you're trying to follow in their full context.

Please provide some relevant context here, so that if the link ever becomes unavailable this answer will still contain enough information to be useful.

What do you mean you "don't agree" with it? The fact that you want it to be possible doesn't mean it is.

comment Is it dangerous to keep my phone plugged in indefinitely?
The sources in Does constant charging harm my Android cellphone? would seem to disagree with this general claim (the possible quality of the charger notwithstanding). Do you have any references for this assertion?

comment Android app that lets you monitor how many minutes you've been using mobile data
To be honest, this is a pretty good example of the problem with "help me find an app for X" questions. If you could instead describe what you're hoping to accomplish we can probably help, but we have so little context based on your current question that it's difficult to even answer appropriately. Consider making an edit to this question to describe your situation and your end goal, and it will be reviewed for re-opening.
