Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Hehe All of those cities already have VZW 4G LTE.

It will be interesting to compare speeds when they are both up and running.

Does androidcentral.com have their own application on the Market? Hmmm... I think I will have to check.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Thats a great idea to begin comparing speed,etc once we are all set. Good question about androidcentral app! Let me know if you locate one. I know appbrain does but i really dont trust linking my android market info to an external site. Adds another layer of vunerability. You know V got those mothershis hovering over ajor cities, preparing to release "red rain" simultaneously just before they rool the air.

ANDROID APP: PERMISSIONS DENIED (Control what apps can access on your device)

PERMISSIONS DENIED

 

 

Take back control of what apps can access on your device!

 

 

This app is great for taking control of what your apps can have access to on your android device.  This app displays everything you have installed,

 

  • shows the total number of prmissions found for an app (example; 10 total permissions for  app; Back My Tones)
  • displays count of "active" permissions for the app (i.e. 7)
  • displays count of ''disabled' permission you've set for the app (i.e. 3)

How it Works:

  • run  PERMISSIONS DENIED
  • View list of all installed apps
  • Touch an app (i.e. Back My tones to reveal details for each permission this app has access)
  • Touch one of the permissions to either turn off or on the permission
  • Touch and set each permission to your preference

*Note:

You will need rooted access to system files for your selections to disable permissions to work.

BUT this app still runs on unrooted devices and very useful for app detail info (quick view the developer, count of permisssions, much clearer description for each permission than what you see on the market installation screen)

I would be very careful about disabling permissions for apps. You could easily be disabling certain functions of the app or the app altogether. A while back, I found an app in the market just for viewing permissions for someone that is not rooted, "Apps by Permission".

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Yes, a vtery cautionary step to make when doing so. Even bloat apps could be tiedvinto the OS system functions to where, disabling might freeze the device. Smiley Surprised

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

My new applicatiorn for the week is Mapquest Maps. They similar to Google Maps, but have a couple of added benefits. The application had some street names where Google Maps didn't and I am liking the filter for certain types of businesses.

Second application for the week. AAA Roadside. I had this for a short time on the other phone, but had removed it for space. Finally got around to installing it again. It seems AAA has added to their number of Apps in the Market since I had the original application on my phone.

Re: ANDROID: Which Apps Do You Have

Droid Life has really interesting articles. I like the link. Thanks for the AAA link. I found why it was not finding the apps when searching. My arket app default settings got reset. I had to manually change the settings to display all, and then were aboe to search and get aaa and mapquest
