Came to learn recently that not all Android apps respect the OS’s wifi network configured proxy settings. And a workaround is to use an app like Drony to locally proxy to actual proxy over the network for apps that don’t respect the OS proxy config.
And sounded like there might some way as app developer to expose app-specific proxy configuration maybe? Or making app programmatically aware of proxy config existence or not?
So I was wondering if anyone here has some background context around this topic. I’ve only found the following relevant articles, others are just more about Drony, etc.:
and lastly, came across this issue with a (corporate) customer PoC project. Corporate/enterprise deployments tend to use proxies, assuming can’t control app awareness or proxy support at the app level, may have to using something like Drony if to keep app usable over corporate proxy/firewall. I’m just wondering if there are actual corporate/enterprise users/customers (i.e. IT/departmental deployments, not just individual users of BYOD) that make use of Drony for their Android devices + apps to go through their corporate proxy.
