I started using a popular free to play online Poker app some time ago, and I’m pretty sure that after about a week of playing they ramped up the difficulty significantly – I was steadily winning, and then for three days straight without changing my strategy I would be beaten down to zero very quickly. They offer in-app purchases of chips, so I put two and two together and never played it again. Now I’m looking for a similar game from an honest studio, but I will not play one where in-game currency or any other game advantage is available for purchase.
After going through several dozen poker apps (including paid ones) they all fall into one of these categories:
- Offers in-app purchases.
- Doesn’t say it offers in-app purchases but Google asks for that permission on install.
- Wants full access to my phone.
- Not an online poker app, but still shows up when searching for “texas holdem”.
Different from two other questions I’m not looking for how to tell whether a specific app offers in-app purchases, but instead how to either not show any apps offering in-app purchases in search results or quickly determine from the search results by visual hints (that is, without having to look at each app’s full info) which ones offer in-app purchases.
I’d be completely fine with using an API if that is available.
I have Sharepoint list, I saved its template download it and .stp extension renamed to .zip.
After that I extract manifest.xml file, edit it and change list’s GUID id.
After manifest.xml file add to archive and rename to .stp and upload to sharepoint site.
But when I am trying to add this list it doesn’t appear in Add apps
here is image of how it displayed in List Template Gallery
After reading documentation and watching official Google tutorials on instant apps I’ve found that it is required to have at least one feature module, “minimal module” (the module with shared code) and a full app module. Official manual explains how to create these modules in one workspace, intended to be used for a single app.
However, in our case we have a lot of different apps in single Android Studio project.
I can create some common module (“minimal module” according to official naming, as I understand docs) with support library and some shared code. Actually, this shared code is really minimal and technically the only common code base of a reasonably large size will be support library (instant apps won’t event share any common resources other than launcher icon).
Is it possible to configure gradle to generate instant app for each app in this project?
Can someone shed some light on the security behind mobile phone logins on mobile apps?
Uber and Lyft ask the user to login using their mobile phone, I’m assuming because it is a more unique identifier than email, and then they text you a verification code to enter. Once the code is entered and the mobile number is verified, you are able to login. They also never log you out unless you manually log out.
It seems as though this has taken the idea of two-factor authentication (something you know and something you have) and basically dropped the “something you know” portion of it (a password). Is this true? If someone were to steal your phone they could essentially jump into the Uber or Lyft app and use it as much as they want without ever having to verify (of course until you catch the charges on your credit card).
Is there an extra layer of security I am missing? It may not matter as much for an app like Uber or Lyft, but what about for a medical app that must be HIPAA-compliant? I found 98point6 the other day, and they seem to use the same mobile phone login approach. However, they log you out after 15 minutes of inactivity (HIPAA regulations) and so you must enter your phone number and the texted verification code every time to use the app.
Apologies for the long-winded post, but I just want to understand the benefits of a login approach like this (is it just so that you never have to enter a password?) and further, is there an extra layer of security I am missing that allows for even HIPAA-compliant apps to take this approach?
Thanks in advance!
I observed in case of Mi phones like Redmi Note 4 & Mi Max2.
We’re not able to disable Google Apps like Chrome, Play Music, Play Movies & TV, etc.
Please let me know, how to disable Google apps?

What android apps, that aren’t copies of PC programs, can be regarded as countercultural?
The sharing function in all apps crash on my phone. No matter what app I use, as long as I click on the share button, the app crashes and restarts before showing the list of apps I can share with.
My phone is a Huawei Honor 9 and the OS version is 8.0. I am an Android developer so I tried to get the exception from Android Studio:
E/AndroidRuntime: FATAL EXCEPTION: ModernAsyncTask #1 Process: com.google.android.apps.photos, PID: 19271 java.lang.RuntimeException: An error occurred while executing doInBackground() at pu.done(PG:5) at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.finishCompletion(FutureTask.java:383) at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.setException(FutureTask.java:252) at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.run(FutureTask.java:271) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:1162) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$ Worker.run(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:636) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:784) Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to read from field 'android.content.pm.ApplicationInfo android.content.pm.ComponentInfo.applicationInfo' on a null object reference at android.os.Parcel.readException(Parcel.java:1960) at android.os.Parcel.readException(Parcel.java:1900) at android.content.pm.IPackageManager$ Stub$ Proxy.queryIntentActivities(IPackageManager.java:3621) at android.app.ApplicationPackageManager.queryIntentActivitiesAsUser(ApplicationPackageManager.java:937) at android.app.ApplicationPackageManager.queryIntentActivities(ApplicationPackageManager.java:926) at aham.d(PG:7) at pi.d(PG:3) at pi.b(PG:19) at px.call(PG:5) at java.util.concurrent.FutureTask.run(FutureTask.java:266) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:1162) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$ Worker.run(ThreadPoolExecutor.java:636) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:784)
It seems that this NullPointerException
java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to read from field 'android.content.pm.ApplicationInfo android.content.pm.ComponentInfo.applicationInfo' on a null object reference
is the cause to this problem.
I believe it’s not the app’s problem (in this case Google Photos) because it occurs in every app. So is it a system problem or is it caused by some other app I have installed? How can I find and uninstall that app if it’s the latter case?
I guess most people may have this question:
I have installed a LOT of apps on my iPhone. And I have put some of them in groups.
I can find any app by searching, but that’s only for using this app.
I would like to find the location of a specific app. It’s something like:
your “Facebook” app is located in the Group “Social” of your 5th screen.
