Hello, unfortunately you can't. At my company we developed a custom android launcher that permits only server side configured apps. The launcher blocks everything that it's not allowed. The only way to accomplish this, I think.

if i am not wrong, you are looking to install only those which are
available in the Playstore or in other words, stop installing the "Unsource
app"

Hello,
I am working with a Nexus 5 with installed the Android 4.4.4 and I've
noticed a reboot when the sequence Ctrl + Alt + FN + Delete is pressed, I
am using a Logitech Ultrathin Folio BT keyboard, I was wondering if such
behaviour is the wanted behaviour and if, from an application I am
developing, I can avoid the reboot and catch the keys sequence for my
internal use.
 
Thanks in advance,
Pietro

I had a similar issue once and I tracked it down to the View#setTag(int
key, Object tag) method.
In my code, setTag was called with a tag value being an object
holding/referencing an instance that had children referring to children of
the View on which this setTag was called (tag was a 'ViewHolder' instance).
 
Certain versions of Android implement setTag using a *static *map of
WeakRereferences. This caused a View to never get garbage collected, since
the tag would hold references to its children whose parents would then
point (all the way up) to that View again. And if a View doesn't get
garbage collected, its Context (i.e. Activity) would never get garbage
collected.
 
Look if there is anything holding on to your Activity by the virtue of
other instances being held through incorrect usage of WeakReferences.

I have. It's not giving itself up that easily.
 
I was hopeful, in the vast array of information in Memory Analyzer, that
something, somewhere, would be useful in narrowing it down. But, so far,
all leads have been useless.
 
I have review all 347 or so outgoing references to the context. I'm finding
nothing that should last longer than the activity pointing back to the
activity.

The Android.Graphics.Bitmap class, to my knowledge, does not have any
context reference.
 
It is code that has had multiple people working in it and uses some
external libraries. So the problem could be deeper, I just wish there were
more clues.

Yeah, sorry, was thinking of drawables, specifically BitmapDrawable.
 
The only thing I could suggest would be a strategy of stripping down your
code to as much as possible and then re-adding stuff back in slowly to see
what introduces the issue.

Anonymous Inner Class has a strong reference of class itself. You may have
to pass Context into it.

Hi,
I am able to show multiple markers in the map but if the locations are very
nearby(near about 100 mts) then my markers are overlapping, I want to show
the markers even if the distance between two locations are near about
100mts. I am using Google API V2. Can anyone guide me on this.

What exactly is your question?

Here we go, after 3 years with almost no change in my application
description on Google Play I received the violation notification for my
application
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tlegras.freeboxrec (sorry
only available in google play France)
 
This is a notification that your application, Freebox Recorder, with
> keywords out of context
 
> - Do not use irrelevant, misleading, or excessive keywords in apps
> descriptions, titles, or metadata.
 
It seems that Google anti-spam robots has gone crazy (why only now after
all these years??) with the keywords "Freebox" and "Free" which are related
to the name of the French Telecom operator "Free" and its set-top box
"Freebox" that my application allows to control remotely. So these keywords
are definitively NOT out of context, my application does not pretend
anywhere to give anything for free or whatever of the kind.
 
While waiting for the end of the countdown, I removed a few occurrences of
"Freebox" in Google play description. Changing the package ID is really not
an option for me as other applications are using mine, and anyway, come on,
my application is controlling a device called "Freebox" so what would be
the issue with "freebox" in the id???
 
So, can anybody tell me if there is a way to contact a HUMAN at Google play
team before my application may be deleted from Google Play, or at least how
to get more precise feedback than this generic automatically generated
mail.
 
I am pretty upset by such mail after having supported a free ad-less
revenue-less application stared 4.5/5 for so many year and seeing it could
be deleted by a stupid brainless anti-spam algorithm :(
 
Thanks for any help

Ok finally got it to work.
 
I uninstalled the Android SDK and deleted the eclipse (basically the folder)
Then I deleted the .android folder under USER_HOME also.
 
Restarted computer - no remnants of the previous install should be there
now.
 
Redownloaded the ADT+eclipse package and unzipped it under my user folder.
 
Previously I had it under c:\ - just wanted to avoid any permission issue.
 
Created a new eclipse workspace and imported my projects back into this one.
 
Worked fine.
 
Treking - i'm sure you're right about moving to Studio.I'm used to eclipse
and
want to give one more try...next major problem like this and it's gone.
