pushed apps showing up on home screen.


Wednesday 02nd of May 2012 / androidforums.com
Hi, first post on this site.I am very happy with my Droid operating system, though coming from a UNIX background I wish unlocking was easier so it will truly be an open source project. I am getting new apps about once a week popping up on my Android home that I have no idea where they came from. Should be illegal.It's very invasive. I checked my apps for anything suspicious.Please help! I hope we can solve this for everybody.-Nate

Stock Market Apps showing info on home screen???


Tuesday 17th of August 2010 / droidforums.net
Is there an app or widget or whatever that will display up-to-date stock price information on one of the home screens similar to that stock weather thing under the WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and Airplane mode screen. It can be free or paid, but I would like it to run real time. And if possible, also provide the latest news for a given stock. Thanks in advance KStateNupe

Moving Apps to Folders on Home Screen


Tuesday 13th of April 2010 / droidforums.net
I am new to this forum and new user of Droid (just purchased on Monday) and I read in the forum that you can use folders to organize the home screen, i.e., place all my games under a folder called games, etc. Does anyone know how I would go about doing this? I have created folders but can't seem to move anything in them. Maria

Icons from deleted apps mysteriously appear on home screen


Thursday 15th of August 2013 / droidforums.net
I had been using Nova Prime free launcher for a few weeks and decided to go back to stock Motoblur to gain access to the circles widget and quick settings. Otherwise I would have kept it. I think the battery life is bit better with stock and not having to have 3 separate widgets for clock, battery, weather, and quick settings. Anyway, I did a cache wipe and have added and deleted a few apps over the last few days and have periodically noticed a lone icon parked on an unused spot on my home screen that's an app I've deleted. You touch it and it says app deleted so I get rid of the icon. But different icons have popped up in a similar fashion. Only one at a time and when you look in the app drawer you see that the icon for the deleted program is indeed not there either. Very strange. So, short of a complete factory reset is there anything that can eliminate this from happening again?

Friday 16th of May 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Brand new HTC one mini user . Question: There's a small blue notification on the home screen icons that I want to be larger and maybe red, not blue. Example: I receive a text message, I get a little, small, blue (1) next to my Text message icon. I want a large red (1). Is this possible? thanks

Weather widget won't appear on home screen


Wednesday 11th of March 2015 / forums.androidcentral.com
The weather widget used to appear on the home screen. Now, all that appears is the time/day/date. Have tried all the different location settings (high accuracy, power saving, and GPS only) but doesn't resolve the problem. Since the widget won't appear on home screen, the settings can't be accessed to check if there's anything odd there. Samsung Galaxy S5. What don't I know? Thanks, Joyce
