Full Internet Access App Permission
Tuesday 21st of February 2012
Hi all My apologies for this thread also being in the Android Lounge as well. I have a couple of questions and thought this might be the right place to come for some help.I paid for and downloaded and installed a app from Android Market which is used to check what permissions each app has that is installed on my Android device it is called Doctor Permission. The app has just one permission it's self being the following- --------------------------------------------------------------------------NETWORK COMMUNICATIONFULL INTERNET ACCESSAllows an application to create network sockets.--------------------------------------------------------------------------Could a app with just this one permission like Full Internet Access cause any real harm to my device ?Or does it require other permissions like read contact info or system logs etc to possibly become a problem app.? Could it require the internet connection because of license checking.? Cheers

Wifi Connected but No Internet Access
Saturday 19th of March 2011
I've been battling this problem ever since I got my AT&T Captivate. I have had trouble getting internet access over the wireless connection at my work. I have had this challenge with two different routers. One was a Linksys, and the current one is an Apple Router. I can connect to the Wifi, but I don't get internet access. I have an app on my phone called "Ping" and I can ping my Windows 7 desktop, but no Internet. When I was on Android 2.1 I could boot to recovery, clear the cache and it would work until I left the office for anything. I could have it working, leave for lunch, come back and it would not be working again. I have 2.2 on my Captivate now and it doesn't work at all. Other people in my office have no problem with connecting to the Wifi, whether it be iPhones, Blackberries, or laptops. It seems to only be affecting Android phones. Mine is not the only one with the problem. Another piece of information that might be interesting is that on my laptop I had a dual boot of Ubuntu and Windows 7 x64. When booted into Windows, the internet worked fine, but when logg

Next Issue Media Android app now available, offers access to 32 magazines
Wednesday 04th of April 2012
Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp., and Time Inc. are five of the most important US print publishers these days, so, when a while ago we heard they were joining forces into one mighty venture, we knew that we should expect something exciting.That something has finally materialized earlier today, in the form of an Android app for tablets that offers easy access to no less than 32 magazines. The mags should cover pretty much all tastes and preferences, targeting men and women of all ages, formations, and professions.Some of the most important titles available on the Next Issue Media app are Sports Illustrated, Time, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, People, Fortune, Esquire, and Entertainment Weekly, but you can also get access to Sports Illustrated for Kids, Popular Mechanics, or People en Español, to name only three of the more “eccentric” titles on the list.This is, of course, a premium app and, as you may suspect already, you’ll have to pay a pretty “premium” price in order to get access to some of today’s most popular magazines. Prices start at ten bucks for su

Better Keyboard and Full Internet Access
Thursday 10th of December 2009
When I first got my droid last week I downloaded and installed better keyboard. I found it was ok but not great. It had quirks like the T9 keyboard appearing at random clicks, some lag, and stability issues here and there. Overall I could use it after tinkering with the settings. I had bought it so I thought I'd just use it and hope the updates would make it better.Last night I was reading comments as I updated other applications and found that this particular app may now have full internet permission. Being the paranoid computer security guy I am, I un-installed the application. I read over more comments that begun to appear about it having full internet access.My question is can anyone else confirm that Better Keyboard does now have Full Internet Permission with the latest update? If so why would this application need it? If it doesn't, then how do we go about forcing it to change besides boycotting the application and getting word around to all users about the possibilities of this permission.I'm not trying to troll the developer or being a bastard, but I have serious concerns abo

app now requiring Internet access?
Sunday 04th of August 2013
why are my apps that don't show they need internet access suddenly not running without access? Is it just to verify I "own" them? I checked the permissions and Internet access is not one of them. Does this mean they won't work in places where I can't access the Internet? I downloaded most of them because of the lack of permissions. Thanks

Tip - Monitor/Block your apps internet access
Wednesday 22nd of January 2014
Out of frustration with all the bloatware on my new GN2014 and the inability to disable most of them, particularly Flipboard which I personally dislike, I decided to do something about it.A forum search reveals people who want to block certain apps from accessing the internet for certain reasons but their device isn't rooted. Here's your answer.On Google Play, the app 'NoRoot Firewall' (Free) does the trick, if only to show you which apps try to access the internet. I installed it to check it out. It puts up a notification each time an app tries to access the Internet and when you tap the notification, it takes you to a screen where you can allow or block internet access by it.Of course, you should allow access for email and Google Play and other obvious ones. When 'My Magazine' aka Flipboard came up - BLOCK. A satisfied feeling resulted. No doubt there will be a few surprises like 'Cleanmaster'. Why exactly does a cleaning app need direct internet access? Oh, ads I suspect - BLOCKED. I'll be uninstalling that one anyway. It keeps warning me about low memory.If you only want to bloc
