Yes, that's it!
So whenever I go to request coins it creates a new receiving address.
Since I had to explore it to find my addresses I probably touched request coins several times before finding them and then I ended up adding several BTC addresses.

It sounds weird to me anyway.

Thanks man!

It also creates a new address for change each time you spend some BTC and require a change address.  But these days bitcoin wallet for android is using addresses created deterministically from a seed of tweleve ascii english words.  You can find those words in your wallet backup.  Anyway, I thought I'd just add this fact in case you didn't realize that all of those addresses you're creating can be "rediscovered" from the seed---so no worries about needing a new backup each time you make an address.

Ok, I got it now. Thanks for the explanation.

To not ever reuse any address already used once is one of the prime principles of bitcoin.
If you only ever want to use the same address to receive coins, you can go to myb.tc and create a shortlink for that address.
However, as pointed out, the app also creates a new address for every changeback transaction, so that's not of much use.

Right, if you really only want to use one address (including for change) you might be able to use an old version of this app.  If I recally correctly, older versions would just use the same address as change address (maybe before version 2 or something?).

It's quite onerous and you'd pay alot of fees, but another thing you can do is keep sending the change back to that address yourself, from within the app.  However, maybe if it'd actually be easier just to modify the soruce and recompile && install.

Not currently actively browsing this forum.  I do still respond to PMs though.

I would appreciate an option to only connect to peers on request. I pay per MB, and even though I usually have data transfer disabled it has managed to transfer 60 MB just this month.

A workaround for now would be to go into settings, add 127.0.0.1 (localhost aka your own device) as your trusted peer, and check "skip regular peer discovery" when you don't want the app using bandwidth. Then when you get on free WiFi, uncheck it, and let it sync blocks. I'm watching my network monitor right now and it's going through January's blocks. It stops cold when I reengage the check.

you can also plug one of your receiving addresses into myb.tc and request coins to ONLY that addresse. but then again, the app creates a new changeback address for every trx you send, you end up with a whole bunch of addresses with coins on them anyways...

In the data usage preferences, disable background data. Android allows disabling either for all apps or for individual apps specifically.

Note if you open the app manually, it will still sync as this will count as "foreground".

That option only appears in Android devices that aren't WiFi-only. If you're tethering your WiFi-only device to cellular networks, using a cell-to-WiFi device like Karma Go or MiFi, connecting through a VPN, using paid hotspots that you don't own, etc... the only solution I can see is https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4384.msg11863617#msg11863617

In this case, use the Android Network Restrictions dialog to make your tethering Wifi network behave as if it were a mobile network.

Does not exist in Android 4.4.2, the latest firmware available for my Wi-Fi only tablet. Unless you mean Data usage>Mobile hotspots under the menu key, then you have to check each Wi-Fi network and have all background apps restricted even if you want to restrict only the high-usage one(s).

Yeah, that's it. I guess they renamed it with Android 5.

Irregardless, you can't just set a single high-usage background app to stop being high-usage from the Wi-Fi only Android OS settings. You might want to reserve your data transfer for specific high-usage background apps and not be forced to choose between allowing all of them, or none.

Why not? That's what the "Restrict app background data" checkbox is for.

Screenshot pending.

No worries, I believe you. Seems like an oversight to me. Clearly the option would make sense for Wifi-only devices too.

Depending on the tablet, you may be able to "root" it to allow the installation of a modified version of Android that lets you control background data for individual applications. It's not for the faint of heart, and it would help to establish for certain that the option you want is definitely available before you seek this out.
