As far as I know, the GMail app and the mobile version of GMail does not have any way to add filters. You will have to use the Desktop/full version of GMail to create filters.

In Ice Cream Sandwich, the old Contacts app was now replaced with the People app. This new app is meant to keep you connected with all of your contacts, not just people you call, and it does so in different ways then the old contacts app, by hooking in to social networks and things like that. The option to only show contacts with a phone number is not an ...

The answer to your question most likely relates to this question "How do I change the Google Play country?". It details what you should do but read through the whole thing because the first answer requires you to make a purchase, but the second says how to do it without making a purchase.

I got this official response from Google's support team and it worked: Thank you for contacting Google. It was a pleasure speaking with you today. I understand that your Play Store is targeting the incorrect country at the moment. The content available in Google Play varies by country, and we use the billing address of your default payment ...

The new phone App in ICS does have a contacts tab of its own, it seems to show only the contacts with numbers so you might prefer to use that on most occasions.

You can filter messages based on sender, recipient, subject and other criteria from within the Web app. This is not possible from within the Android app. In a web browser, Goto [Settings] -> [Filters] of Gmail. Click on [Create new filter]. Create a filter to match your newsletters. Assign a label to them (create one if you don't have one yet). Make sure ...

I suggest you use both a PC and your mobile for this solution. Using your PC, visit your Play Store's order history. It would list only those apps you have bought so far. Now, in your Play Store app, go to Account (rightwards swipe from the left edge) → Library. Compare the two lists. The ones which would not match would be the free ones. This is ...

If your Android is rooted and has Xposed Framework installed, then NotifyClean xposed module can be used to easily achieve the goal. I have mentioned its relevant usage here. For non-rooted Android devices, I suggest you use MacroDroid or a similar app, such as Automate. MacroDroid defines a set of trigger(s), action(s) and constraint(s) as a macro. You ...

It doesn't say it on HTC's website under the specs for the One X, but this review points out that the phone has dual-microphones, used for sound cancellation during phone calls. My guess is perhaps your recording app is recording from the wrong microphone? Or using both to cancel out the pitch you're looking for? I'd look for settings in your recording apps ...

You could use a VPN to "mask" all your traffic. This way your provider would still be able to count the amount of data transfered -- but he would no longer be able to see its contents. VPN requires a client (which comes already integrated with recent Android versions -- but additionally, there are a lot of apps available for this on the Google Playstore) ...

The People app shows all the contacts regardless of what information is available. But the dialer app only shows contacts with phone numbers.

After going through various forums and unsuccessfully attempting the resolutions, I have identified the following steps which seemed to work for me. (Changing location from UK to India) Change location in Google Wallet This can be done by logging into 'Google Wallet' in desktop browser and in the Payment Methods you need to have a credit/debit card ...

Is this what you're looking for? (Click image to enlarge) I'm not good in drawing so excuse my skills for not providing a breathtaking scene at first glance. However, with multiple attempts, you may come close to exactly what you need. The low-light section in the screenshot is caused by an overlay shown by Tasker. Tasker can do it using Scenes. Go to ...

After some digging around, I unearthed some interesting developer settings that significantly jazz up my homescreen. The added benefit of this in-built solution is it doesn't block app installs :) There's also the colour inversion option under accessibility settings I'd post a screenshot of my new homescreen but it seems the filter isn't reflected in ...

The Google Play Store automatically filters your application to devices with compatible CPU architecture. E.g. if you have a library which is only compiled for ARMv5, your app will only show up for devices with ARMv5 and ARMv7 processors. Your device should show you only apps that are compatible to your device. Source: Android Developers - Filters on Google ...

I don't understand why you need this. Google Play will register what's in your library, so if you paid for it (or got it at a limited "sale" for free), you'll be able to install it later when you need it. Just make sure you don't delete any paid app from a 3rd-party store (although 3rd-party stores tend to have a similar feature), or delete anything you don'...

Best option would be to change location in gmail under Themes, then it worked for me.

If you'd use the new label system you could have easily turned off notifications for that label, otherwise follow what was posted to get the same effect

After quite a bit of searching and testing I don't think it's possible to do. Even locking SafeSearch on your Google account on the PC doesn't change it for the phone. Regardless of this I would imagine that if your son can turn SafeSearch off even if you did lock it he would probably try getting around K9. This isn't too hard, there's even a suggested ...

I'm pretty sure what you're asking for is a firewall, so by searching for that I've found what seems to be a very popular app that might work for you: DroidWall - Front-end application for the powerful iptables Linux firewall. Allows you to restrict which apps can access the network. I tried finding some other alternatives for you, but every page I ...

As ce4 pointed out, Privoxy just seems have to left the playstore within the last month. At the moment, the probably only candidate left seems to be FilterProxy. On the other hand, if you have your device rooted, there are some additional possibilities working by manipulating the device's local hosts file. A quite good candidate in that case would be AdAway,...

I have the same issue. After playing around with One X a little bit I'm pretty sure the issue is with the noise cancellation thing, most likely software issue. There are 2 microphones on the One X - one at the bottom and one at the top. I played a high frequency sound on my earphones and tested 2 cases: I put both speakers next to the bottom mic. Sound ...

Onavo will let you do this, and it doesn't require your device to be rooted: "Data hog blocking: Restrict specific apps to Wi-Fi, or block your 3G data altogether once you exceed your data cap to avoid any additional costs" note that it's only free for a limited time (http://www.onavo.com/help).
