Theme [ICONS] "Flatcons" For The Minimalist Look
Tuesday 09th of April 2013
If you love the minimalist look and feel then I have just the Icon Pack for you. Flatcons by "arandompackage" are perfect for those who want a clean and unified look to their android device. Each app icon logo is grey in the center and surrounded by a white circle. Everything is flattened out as the name would suggest. Flatcons also comes in Red, Blue, and Purple each having a white app icon logo in the center surrounded by the color of the icon pack. Each pack comes with 100 themed icons. There will be new icons added with each update. Flatcons are compatible with Apex, Nova, ADW, and Holo Launchers. They are very easy to apply and they can be yours for only $1 each! Grab these icon packs from the source link below.Google Play
Photo management, adding "Albums" to gallery for imported pictures etc..
Friday 12th of October 2012
So I have been trying to figure out where new folders for pictures should be located so I can add a new folder or three to cluster pictures that may or may not have been taken with my phone. My goal is to be able to hide that "all photos" so that I can locate pictures faster by knowing what folder they should be in.None of the normal methods actually work, the folders just dont show up!I went in and added some folders with pics already in them to various locations and they will not populate when I open up the gallery viewer.When I plug in via USB I can see "no name" and "HTC storage", I am guessing the "No name" is the SD card. Inside the "No name" folder I have DCIM, inside that folder I have sub-folders named 100Media, Imported, Misc, Paint & stuff (Paint & stuff are added folders that do not show up in my gallery). My regular photos are inside that 100media location.FWIW The DCIM folder in "HTCstorage" is empty when viewed from a USB connection. I know I can use my file explorer to access these folders and pull

MailYouTubeI really need only ONE or TWO of the above. Is there any way to trim this list down??THANKS!
Photo Gallery Showing "Drawable" Folders Content
Sunday 13th of November 2011
I have a Dell Streak and just noticed yesterday that about 5 "Drawable" folders are appearinig in the Gallery. Each folder contains .png icon type files. I am trying to determine if these are associated with an installed app but the .png file details doesnt provide a clue. Are any of these folders showing up in your Gallery? 1. Drawable2. Drawable-Hdpi3. Drawable-Idpi4. Drawable-mdpi
"cache" folder appearing in gallery - 4 files, no location, can't delete
Monday 17th of May 2010
Title sums it up. Recently, a folder appeared in my gallery called "cache". In it are 4 files:2206smaller-background435smaller-background-land-wide2352background4460background-land-wide The numbers that start the files seem to change every time I delete them and restart the phone - as does the creation time and date. Almost as if the phone is creating these files rather than them being old ghost files i can't delete. I have deleted the gallery cache but that had no effect. The phone shows that the location of the folder is "unknown". I keep deleting the files and the folder and they just keep coming back.I have searched for these files all over the phone and SD card to no avail. They are not in my picasa account nor do I have a clue where they came from.
4.1.2: Red "X" Eats Icons....WTF ????
Monday 08th of April 2013
Sometime in the past month or two, a red "X" has started appearing at top center of the screen when I slide my icons around to rearrange them.If an icon accidentally touches the "X", POOF!...it's gone...no warning... a destructive operation with no confirmation dialog, no nothing...Yeah, it's probably somebody's idea of a neat featrure....But it took me awhile to figure out where my icons were going - and I *still* get burned every so often when rearranging the top row.Is there any way to drive a stake through the heart of this little nasty?
Gallery "overlay" icons
Friday 22nd of July 2011
In the Gallery I have some groupings of images. I have the default "Camera" group, I have a "FxCam" group that is from a subfolder I created, I have a "video" group where the Media Scanner found some files I have on the SD card (mediavideo) and then I have four others. For the each of the category/groups, there is, of course, a thumbnail of a picture from that group. Also, overlaid over that thumbnail, in the lower left corner, is a small icon. The "Camera" group icon is, likely enough, a silhouette of a camera. The icon for the fxCam and video folders are, naturally, little folders. These all make sense to me. It's the other four groups, and their icons, that I can't figure out. Their icon looks like the rotary shutter from, I think, Google Picasa (soon to be renamed to Google Photos?). These groups have the following names: One is dated "7/13/11", the next is "Profile Photos", the next is "Scrapbook Photos" and the last is "Me, Bear". I have been trying to figure out where these came from... [Edit]
Saved/Downloaded images stopped going into the "Download" images folder in Gallery
Wednesday 14th of August 2013
So I downloaded these 2 pictures from websites I go on Chrome and luckily these 2 pictures show up on the "Download" images folder in my Gallery. However, from then on, for some reason when I try saving/downloading other images, these images don't direct to the "Download" images folder anymore.. it's so frustrating. I can only find the recent image I saved/downloaded when I go to the "Downloads" app.......but I want the image I recently saved/downloaded to go into the "Download" images folder in my Gallery. Can someone please help? It's much appreciated! EDIT: Okay, so I restarted my Galaxy S4 and NOW the image I recently downloaded/saved is located in my "Download" images folder in my Gallery...so weird...i don't want to have to restart my phone every time though....errrrrrr
