    I am having a problem maybe you can help with.Every app I scan and subsequently try to fix force closes on smali.It wont let me do anything but scan and attempt to fix.It wont let me report to you either.I checked and i have plenty of memory and Im not running a task killer.Suggestions?

    Even though Im having problems I still think its a great app and I appreciate your hard work.

    I think it is ok the way it is now. There is no way you can go through every possible app four this. There will have to be some trial and error. Plus reading the experiences of other users.
    I have had a couple of apps that were fixed, only to not work when trying to relaunch. They really weren't necessary apps for me so I just deleted them. Plus it's early yet, more feedback is really needed yet. And that will be coming shortly with what this app is capable of doing.

    Amazing job X

    Any app that "fails/crashes" on smali (5/7) or fails to install after "fixed" let me know that app name. Because there are so many apps "and different coding possibility's" I have to make new parsers for apps that have problems.

    Maybe you could have different categories and the user can put the app into the appropriate category (i.e. browsers could be put into a category for 'requires network communication'). If you did this then you'd have to ensure each app could be put into multiple categories and it could be annoying to do this for every app, but it'd only have to be done once for the initial run, and then all of the category data could be saved so the user wouldn't have to do it again. You'd also have to configure it for apps that update, but updates need configured as it is anyway.

    I know this is more work for the user, but I can't think of any other way to accurately determine if something is a threat or not...

    Heya X

    Wondered where you'd gone.

    I have a couple thoughts on this.

    It looks like it will be a indispensable app
    in the future. But needs alot of interaction from both users and yourself ot make this a functional app from everything i have read.

    The problem is that the free only scans which is worthless in helping improve and perfect this app.
    and even though 1.99 is not a big deal it is to many and this app is not getting the reviews that will get the amount of people and different users to trouble shoot all the problems, i believe.

    This is of course your app and it appears you have done a tremendous amount of work. just making smali/backsmali work on android i am sure was a chore in itself.

    Just wanted to give you a suggestion since i would really like this app in a working form.

    needs to be a way to get this our to the masses for testing and feedback. and i dont think people will pay 1.99 with the errors reported. i really think a time out version and than raise price of final to 3-5 dollars may make you the monies you need to support this project. while getting the feedback you need.

    Please dont take this as a bashing or complaint. I just think what you are working on is a superb idea and would love to have this in a final working version , but think you need the feedback from all the different phones,os,apps and so-on.

    I know i wouldnt want to undertake what you have gotten yourself into :)
    I know you want quality and will spend every minute until you achieve that , your gonna be a busy man. Good luck and hope you are able to achieve the final results you obviously have for this great idea.

    thanks for your time

    I have a few questions about this app.

    If we have already used an app for a long time the app has probably already gotten what it wants right? Is there any need to use this app to fix it if its already transmitted our phone numbers, contacts, etc

    How come LauncherPro doesn't show up in the DB?

    Will there be an online database to see what apps have already been scanned by other users so we can see before we install the app?

    I've bought the app already and I love it! Can't wait for more updates

    xeudoxus,

    It's also happening on my HTC Desire (Stock 2.2).

    I'm also having issues with the following applications:

    Documents to Go (Purchased) - Closes on scan - I imagine a memory thing
    Calorie Counter - Failed on Fixing - after step 5/7
    3D Gallery - Will not scan, claims it's a private app
    Movies by Flixster - Failed on Fixing - after step 5/7
    Jewellust (Purchased) - Failed on Fixing - after step 5/7
    DoubleTwist - Closes on fixing - after step 5/7
    MyBackup Pro (Purchased) Fails as well

    Your prob right ;) but if you wipe your data "Phone Id" will be reset. So apps would not be able to track you from that point on (and with the frequency that people install new roms, it gets reset often)

    Im working on that.

    In the works, thats what the "Fingerprint" button is for in the menu in detail... so everyone start using it ;)

    (Update will be uploaded today)

    Thanks,
    -Matt

    That upload finger print button...does that only upload for the one app your looking at at the time?

    I tried it on 3 different apps and after a minute i get FC or wait. i chose wait and then i'm not sure if it sent or what it did as nothing seems to happen.
