I didn't really notice till now, and searching around I see lots of complaints in various communities for different apps.
Turns out it's intended behavior in Android 14. The only persistent thing about it is that they don't disappear when you hit "clear all", which is something I never do because I only dismiss the ones I need to instead of nuking everything.
Feels like a big step backwards and I don't understand the reasoning behind it. It was always possible to kill persistent notifications if we really needed to.
Is there any workaround to get it back?
I use a notification creation app to leave important TODOs as pinned notifications so I see them when I check my phone.
I've missed some and I thought I was setting them wrong. Turns out the notifications can be dismissed accidentally, making the app useless.
I'm looking for an app that allows me to set long term goals with the individual steps that are needed for each of those goals. Similar to a bunch of todo lists, but that allows me to easily see my progress on the home screen via a graph/progress widget of some kind.
Some example goals are buying a house or publishing a new website. That sort of long term project where there are no strict deadlines, but there are clearly defined tasks.
I've spent over an hour looking so far but have come up dry. I'm having a hard time finding relevant apps when searching, as I keep getting results for habit trackers - which isn't at all what I'm looking for. The tasks I want to track are not time sensitive, so they don't have any date associated with them. They are also not repeatable.
The widget part is particularly important to me, because if the list of things to do is tucked away behind an app, or even not on the first page of my home screen, then I'll just forget about it. (Pretty sure I have ADHD.)
I'm also not too keen on having to setup an account or give any personal info away - but if I find an app that for sure can provide what I need then I'll probably cave on that. I just don't want to end up with a bunch of accounts for apps I won't even use.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Or maybe some search terms that might show something closer to what I'm looking for? Any help is greatly appreciated, and if you've read this far I hope you're having a wonderful day! 🙃40
Not looking for me personally, so leaving the specs/features open, and generally interested in what people might recommend.
Imo there's almost always some surprising budget phones floating around to learn about. Only condition I might add is that preferably they're from 2022-2023, and if not, mention their release year to help know its version/update situation.1827
Do Alarms Turn Off Automatically After a Long Period of Time?
Here's the story. I went to a vacation overseas but still would like to receive sms. So I left my old phone back home with my sim and setup an sms forwarding stuff that automatically sends all my received sms to my email. (using Tasker and AutoMail since I already use those).
Unfortunately, I forgot to turn off my weekday alarm. I was wondering if the alarm turns off after some time that it wasn't dismissed (an hour? half a day? etc.) because I'm worried that my neighbor (we live in a condo) would go nuts if my phone is ringing 24/7 while I'm away.
Phone is on Android 10, LG G7 ThinQ, and the alarm app is Sleep As Android.189

That iOS-like popup on Android prompting you to connect to a nearby wireless device: what is it called?
My Harman Kardon headphones and my sausage fingers don't go well sometimes - occasionally when switching off the ANC I accidentally put the headphones into pairing mode.
When this happens, a massive popup with a picture of my headphones appears on my phone screen, prompting me to connect via bluetooth, a bit like that iOS one that shows up when you hold your earpod case near the device.
Anyone aware what this popup feature is called? I'd like to ultimately switch it off - don't really like the idea of nearby bluetooth devices opening massive popups on my device, just because they're in pairing mode

It's actually compact, cheap, has oled, in-screen fingerprint reader, stock Android, NFC, Snapdragon SOC, supports GSI and has unlockable bootloader. Seems like a perfect phone (well except nonexpandable storage), so what's the catch?2016
I've been using Feeder for awhile now, and have kind of dealt with it skipping around, but it's still bothering me and I'm not sure if it may be something I'm doing wrong.
I've set it so I'm manually syncing my feeds instead of having it do so at regular intervals, in case that may have been the cause.
I'm not holding my phone in a way that I may be touching the sides of the screen and causing it to misread input (so far as I can tell).
I've tried returning to the feed both via the app's back button and the system back button, with both returning me to a different position in the feed (either up to new articles or down to older ones).
Hello! I recently installed Easer on my android device, and would like to set it up to:
- automatically turn on DND (do not disturb) mode when I enter my university in certain dates
- automatically turn off DND when I leave the university in the same dates
what I did is:
- create a profile "DND on" and "DND off", each one setting the DND mode to the respecting one
- create a condition "mon-fri", selecting weekdays from monday to friday
- create an event "university event" setting the location of my university
- also create a condition "university condition" with the same settings as the event (because I don't know which one is the correct one to use)
- create a script "is weekdays" with no parents and no profile set, "condition" trigger, and assigned "mon-fri" to it
- create a script "university in" with "is_weekdays" as parent, profile "DND on", and then assigning "university event" or "university condition" (don't know which oneis better), and setting "recurrent" to true
- the same as point above, but checking "inverse scenario" (don't know the exact translation)
when I enter my university, it works correctly, activating the DND mode. The problem is when I leave the university, because it just do nothing, leaving the DND mode on. What am I doing wrong?
thanks in advance!90
Hello! I'm currently very very dependent on TickTick (not tiktok) because of a single simple feature: persistent notification alerts. I can set events and tasks as in many other similar apps, but once the reminder is triggered, a persistent notification is showed, until I manually say "mark as completed" or "remind me later". This way I avoid accidentally removing (and missing) it by clearing my notification tray. However, it is closed source and only available on Google Play. I'd like to replace it (if possible) with a FOSS app. Do you know of an app with this feature? Thanks in advance Android folks!
I am looking for a way to delete 1000s of SMS from my service provider pertaining to calls with zero charge. However there will also be some important messages from the same sender. So I cannot delete the whole conversation.
The best option I have seen so far is SMS Organiser but it limits me to only 25 messages at a time.
Is there any other SMS app that can let me do this in one go?
Recently stumbled across a thread where someone recommended the cool NeverTooManyBooks app for helping track one's book collection, and was wondering if there might be similar for other media.
Other media being anything from movies to music to games. I know a lot has gone digital of late, but if anyone's still buying physical, it's the collectors, so I'd hope there might be more apps to help in this regard.
Hello, can anyone provide detailed step-by-step instructions on how to install android 10 on a nexus 7 (2013, 2nd gen) device?

New phone with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus: should I still buy a screen protector?www.corning.com Gorilla Glass Victus | Toughest Gorilla Glass Yet | Corning Gorilla Glass
Learn more about Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, tested as the toughest Gorilla Glass yet, with significant improvement in both drop and scratch performance.
Basically the title, I received a new price with a significant price tag (at least for me). My previous ones I didn’t care much so they weren’t protected. Given that I’d like to keep this one in good shape I’d like to know your experiences: does it still make sense to buy screen protectors nowadays? If so, also on newer quality screens like Gorilla Glass Victus? Thank you for your feedback1019
Hello there! I'm currently using telegram FOSS from fdroid, and don't have telegram premium. It's okay to have limitations on animated emoji and such, that are limitations imposed by the server, but I really cannot tolerate limitations imposed by the client. I want to rearrange folders. It won't make me do it without premium. Total bullshit. I want to hide the awful ads on channels. It won't make me hide them without premium. Hateful. Is there a client that just removes all thos idiotic antifeatures from the official client?209

> Hello there! This is my problem: I'm going to buy a new smartphone, and I'd really like to degoogle myself as much as possible. The idea would be to buy a device compatible with LineageOS, but... Supported devices are usually older models, and often there are newer devices with better specs for the same price, that does not support lineageOS. Is seems a shame to buy a device with lower specs than another one just because of software compatibility. > So the alternative would be to buy an unsupported device, unlock the bootloader and debloat it as much as possible, flash privileged fdroid and aurora store on it, install microg, etc... > What do you suggest me to do? Is the second alternative a viable option? What other steps should I do if I decide to go that way? > > Thanks in advance folks!1111
Is there any way other than scrolling through each app one by one?
So I have some random thrud party head unit in my car that I am pretty sure is just running a customized version of Android 9 and I am wanting to get Android auto working on it preferably wireless but I think it did come with a USB cable if I need it. I've seen a couple things online such as headunit reloaded but they have mixed reviews just wondering if anyone has tried anything similar with any success115
Considering getting an S23 256GB (live in UK).
Current price is £899, but there's a samsung.com deal on right now where they give £100 cashback, galaxy buds FE (worth ~£100), and a year Disney+ subscription if you buy it from one of their big list of retailers (it's basically any legit retailer, but excludes, say random Amazon sellers). So I think I get one for ~£810; factor in the £100 cashback, and I'd be paying ~£710 for an S23 and buds.
Looking at Amazon (https://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/product/B09NRTV752?context=search&tp=1y), it looks like the S22 dropped £100 when the S23 came out. Does that sound about right to people? In which case, is there any point waiting another few months to wait for a price drop when the S24 comes out?56
Hi guys anyone know the dofference between Google Play System updates vs OEM security updates?
I currently am using a Oneplus 8 which gets oem security updates from oneplus untill April 2024. After this date how safe would thr device be to use (banking, google pay, etc)?61
There's an update step that shows "Optimizing apps" during installing a system update normally. It takes a while.
- What does it do?
- Is this step skipped when flashing a full OTA via adb sideload?
- Is there any difference in regards to the effect of "Optimizing apps" between the regular system update process and full OTA flashing?
On many operating systems, I can create audio loopback devices to feed audio files into another app as if it was coming from a microphone. I can also tee off audio going out to the speakers.
Is there an app that lets me redirect audio devices to perform the equivalent of connecting audio inputs and outputs on Android?
Note to moderators: while such a feature can be used for piracy, that is not my goal, and there are better methods if I was trying to be nefarious. I want to use it to feed audio samples from soundboard apps into my active phone call without having to play the sound effects through the microphone. I'd also like to use it to directly supply the output of an MP3 into another app that records my voicemail message for better quality than can be performed by simply recording through the microphone.141
So when changing phones we got to transfer some data. For that we can use backup and restore tools. Those backup messages, settings, etc. so we can restore the backup on the new phone.
Health connect introduced a local storage for health data. Though it did not introduce a way to backup and restore these data.
I can't believe Google did not think about that so what's the way ?44

Game recommendations: Passive / Turn Based + Portrait Orientation + No IAP (or at least minimally invasive)
I'm looking for some game recommendations. I feel like a ton of these games exist but they're riddled with IAP. I don't mind paying a little to buy the game. I have the play pass but so many of these games are active involvement and landscape orientation. I like to have an extra hand free and landscape requires both hands on. But really want passive engagement. Like as soon as I stop playing the game is waiting for me. Example games:
Knights of Pen and Paper
Games like Slay the Spire (but portrait). Although I've never really found a Slay the Spire-like that didn't feel like a watered down version of STS77
I've had a humble A10s for several years that has worked well for me but I want to replace it with something a little better and I don't want to go broke either, and besides, I want to emulate some simple Switch games like Hollow Knight, so I've been researching different devices in the $150 to $300 price range and although there are many interesting used devices in that price range (Like the P30 Pro) the one that catches my eye the most is the A71 because it has a Snapdragon 730, an AMOLED screen and between 6 and 8GB of RAM with a 64MP camera and a 1080x2400 display and can be upgraded to Android 13.
Maybe I'm a bit outdated because I don't know much about the phone market, but from what little I know it seems to me that it's a very good device and definitely an upgrade to my current device.
So my question: Why in general is this device so cheap? Is there something wrong with it? I mean, even on Ebay it has pretty acceptable prices when used phones with worse hardware cost more.
And, does anyone know if I can really emulate Switch on it? Either with Strato (Skyline fork) or with Yuzu. From what I've read in some forums and seen in some Youtube videos, it is in theory supposedly able to run Warzone and Fortnite, and even emulate some Switch titles like Smash Bros and having a Snapdragon (which I've read is the best option to emulate) does not have problems of emulation incompatibilities as other processors.62
so, i bought a new samsung m04 last week but after some uses, i noticed phone battery drains 1% in every 6/7 minutes. it happens only when i use it, but if i leave it untouched it doesn’t drain. i’m confused and don’t know what to do, i searched for some solutions on google and turned off auto sync, put chrome app (uses lots of battery) into deep sleep, lowered screen brightness but nothing seems to work. I don’t know if it’s normal for newly bought phones coz my mom’s phone battery (realme, using it since last year) is so good no matter how long she watches youtube videos, scrolls thru shopping apps, leave apps unclosed & keep phone data on (mom always forgets to turn it off). i’m thinking about turning off adaptive battery option but i’ll wait and see for some more days. what do you think guys?84
Hi! So I currently have the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and at the moment with the s23 ultra education discount the phone is $150 off regular price, and they're offering me $500 for my iPhone to trade-in.
I think I'm pretty set on waiting for the s24 Ultra BUT would it be better for me to wait until then and hope that the trade-in value for my iPhone remains the same or are we convinced it'll decrease?
Right now for s22 ultra they're offering 800, so maybe it'd be better for me to just buy the s23 ultra now and once the s24 ultra comes out just trade-in the s23 ? Worst case if the s24 ultra won't be much of an upgrade, I keep the s23 ultra (possibly losing a few bucks considering s23 ultra price will probably decrease with s24 ultra release?)
I'm trying to decide which one will be more money saving in the long run.96
I'm a big Simple Gallery Pro fan and I want to add some Nextcloud sync features, but honestly, I hate working with native Android Java/Kotlin (and would like to be able to support iOS in the future, just in case).
Does anyone know of a good Image Gallery App alternative that is FOSS and built in Flutter or RN?
Is there a way to shorten it, or if not - completely disable it?110
A lot of them seem to be "free" with an optional subscription.108
I’ve been using iPhone 14 Pro Max for a year which my company gave me. But it has disadvantages more than advantages for me. I want to change it with an Android phone that bootloader unlockable. I want to install Google-free ROM.
A little note, I don’t like S23 Ultra in particular because I really don’t like its frame.75
I want to keep system-wide auto-updating but I would like one specific app not to. Is that possible?174

if you had to help someone switch to a more private digital life what would you do?
the person has a nothing phone 2
the person has an cowon d2 mp3 player
the person uses ahola browser
The audio randomly cuts out part way through the song, like when you don't have internet, but if you check the UI the song keeps "playing". It's really annoying to have to open the app each time it happens and to pause/play the song again.
For me, this seems to happen when I hit play on something that was previously playing (playlist, song) but not when I pick something new. Hopefully that helps others dealing with it, feel free to share any other patterns you notice.
