cool "LED flash and vibrate notifier" uses camera flash/vibrate for calls, new voice mails/texts.


Tuesday 06th of December 2011 / androidforums.com
i have no financial relationship, nor do i have any financial gain in posting this recommendation for the "LED flash and vibrate notifier" app. if you doubt me, which is fine, just look at my other post history. no other app does exactly what "LED flash and vibrate notifier" does. IF I AM WRONG, PLEASE POST YOUR RECOMMENDATION! anyway, my friend has LED camera flash notification on his new iPhone 4s for only incoming calls which made me very, very jealous, but this app does much more. likely, you hate the fact the sgs2 does NOT send out multiple reminder tones like the captivate did at least a few times for missed calls, etc. also, the notification tone volume even on the loudest notification ringtone is too low to hear, and worthless. this app is highly programmable and has an easy user interface (ui) for using the LED to flash/vibrate for incoming calls, new voice mails, new text messages, missed calls (even with no voice mail being left), and i think new email. i have not tested it for new email. the developer fixed a few bugs i found on the sgs2, and now perfe

Automatic Task Killer: The "Set-it-and-Forget-it" Task Killer


Saturday 12th of June 2010 / androidforums.com
YouTube - Automatic Task Killer [Android Review]Many of us early adopters of Android are stuck on contracts with older, lower-end phones like the CLIQ, the G1, myTouch, Hero, etc. And you probably already have some sort of task manager app installed to free up precious memory every once-in-a-while. But is that really doing the job? Doesn't it annoy you that you have to open up your task killer every few minutes to kill apps that really have no business running in the first place, as in apps you never opened?Enter Automatic Task Killer. The app runs quietly behind-the-scenes, feasting on those apps you really wish you could uninstall, but can't. And it's so easy to set up. Basically you set which apps you want to be killed when you turn your screen off and you never have to worry about it again. I've noticed alot of apps like to open themselves up randomly in the background (like TeleNav, MySpace, Audio Postcard... why is there even an app for audio postcards?!) and this is a good way to keep them at bay.The main screen consists of a list of installed apps. Pretty straight-forward.The

The "Linux questions (and other stuff)" thread


Thursday 17th of January 2013 / androidforums.com
With all the splintered discussions about Linux around here, I thought perhaps we could have a thread dedicated to all things Linux. Whether you're a new Linux user, or someone considering installing Linux, or have specific questions or solutions about a Linux feature or program, how about posting here? I'll start by pasting in some code I posted in a totally non-computer related thread!The following bash code will replace spaces in file names with underscores:#!/bin/bashls > /tmp/current_filesmv /tmp/current_files ./current_filescat current_files | tr ' ' '_' > current_files_newFileCount=$(wc -l current_files | awk '{print $1}')count=1while [ "$count" -le "$FileCount" ]do ReadAwk="FNR=="$countOldName=$(awk $ReadAwk current_files)NewName=$(awk $ReadAwk current_files_new)mv "$OldName" "$NewName" > /dev/null 2>&1count=$(($count+1))donerm current_filesrm current_files_newexit 0My advice is that you try it first in a temporary directory with copies of files, just to verify for yourself that it works as expected. Also, if y

After I renamed the file, I rebooted the system, which didn't come back up. Yes, I could have booted into Salix Linux and chrooted into Mageia to rename the file but it gave me a chance to test my backup.

"Zippiness, punchiness, and overall speeditude"


Monday 02nd of August 2010 / androidforums.com
I went to try out an Acclaim today, and, while it was fresh in my mind, jetted over to a Verizon store to see how it held up against the higher-end Android devices.Seemed to me to actually hold up pretty well in zippiness, punchiness, and overall speeditude to my surprise. My only disappointment on the Acclaim was its 3.5" screen, but it's a disappointment I can live with.My question: Does it slow way down once bogged by apps, or do you find it to be just as responsive as the battered and used store demo?

for some reason while playing a game (rigs of rods) my machine acted like the filesystem was mounted read-only. game saves wouldn't work. so i exited out and tried to see what was wrong. the machine froze. i held power until it turned off. then rebooted. now i was getting this warning that 'Ubuntu is in low-graphics mode' but nothing would give feedback as there was no mouse and the keyboard wouldn't select options. i could go into alt-F1 and login, type 'startx' and it would work, but only in Unity, not KDE, and lightDM was not working. worse yet, my graphics card was now being reported back to me as 'gallium llvmpipe' instead of 'radeon hd graphics'. i didn't know what had happened. i tried all i could (again, hours of googling) and all i ended up with was an unrecoverably corrupted X install. as i said put me in front of a Linux box and it's going to be dead. it's only a matter of time. i didn't edit anything either this time, i just was using it as i had been for a long time. it had always given me hell with fsck on boot, presumably due to a problem with my chosen filesystem type

Deleting movies from "my movies and TV shows"


Monday 09th of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Ok so for the life of me I cannot figure out how to delete a movie I recently purchased off the play store from the play movies and TV app.. I had also downloaded a short 2 minute sneak peak to a new episode of breaking bad from the play store that got added to my tv shows and I cannot figure out how to delete that either... There's gotta be something I'm missing here.. I used to be able to click the menu icon and remove the movie when it was the old play store but can't figure out how to do it now! Driving me crazy!
