[APP] Ad Detector Pro Free

This app was made for the new Ad Network called "Sell A Ring" This company plays a 10 second advertisement while you are waiting for the caller to answer their phone.
This is the most intrusive form of advertising even more so than push notifications.
I am all for developers earning revenue off their free apps with the amount of time put in to make these apps up to par for the users.
There comes a fine line that these companies are crossing by now having me hear an advertisement on my phone calls.
This app will also show you a list of all permissions and what apps use them. The permissions that are in BOLD RED are the most dangerous ones with your information. You can easily uninstall these apps by tapping on them.
App Detects:
Tapjoy Ads
Sellaring Ads
Urban Airship
Icon Ads on homescreen

More Ad Networks will be added in the next updates.

Easy Wifi Tether App

I just wanted to post something real quick to let the users that have downloaded Easy Wifi Tether app from the market and are wondering what that advertisement is when you start the app. This ad is a content locker that is displayed every time a user starts the app.

I gave the option to allow the user to click the X button on the top right of the ad to close it out and continue using Easy Wifi Tether app for free. I only put this advertisement in the free version to help support development, but decided it would be best to let the user control if they wanted to click on the ad or exit the ad and continue with the app.

If some of you were wondering what that was I hope this cleared it up. I am all for trying to give the best support to the users but at the same time it takes a lot of time and dedication to keep updating applications to users needs/expectations and the amount of Android phone's running different versions. That is why most developers offer free versions with 'Advertisements'.

Even though an application is free and may be great or horrible.. It still took that developer a great amount of time trying to get that app to work to the standard Android users expectation. A developer has to earn money or you will be left with developers leaving Android and publishing horrible applications.

Thank you to all the users!

Android Code Snippet - Check if tablet or smartphone

Here is how to check if the user is using a smartphone or a tablet...

  private boolean isTabletDevice() {
    if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= 11) { // honeycomb
        // test screen size, use reflection because isLayoutSizeAtLeast is only available since 11
        Configuration con = getResources().getConfiguration();
        try {
            Method mIsLayoutSizeAtLeast = con.getClass().getMethod("isLayoutSizeAtLeast", int.class);
            Boolean r = (Boolean) mIsLayoutSizeAtLeast.invoke(con, 0x00000004); // Configuration.SCREENLAYOUT_SIZE_XLARGE
            return r;
        } catch (Exception x) {

Android Tutorial - Delete Batterystats.bin (Root Required)

If you have a rooted phone and can request Superuser permission then here is an easy way to delete your batterystats.bin file. This is the same as going into Recovery Mode and wiping battery stats.

In your OnCreate method call this...

//Request Superuser permission to use the application
      try {
    } catch (IOException e) {
    // TODO Auto-generated catch block

Inside your Activity put this code on a button or OnClickListener...

                  Runtime runtime = Runtime.getRuntime();  
             Process proc = null;  
             OutputStreamWriter osw = null;  
             String command="busybox rm -f /data/system/batterystats.bin";    
             try {
             // Run Script        
             proc4 = runtime.exec("su");      
             osw4 = new OutputStreamWriter(proc.getOutputStream());
             catch (IOException ex)

Now you are able to wipe your battery stats without going into recovery mode every time.
