I would strongly recommend you use https://webadb.com. It is way easier then figuring out how to download and run ADB on your computer.
When running the device through this I'm getting the error unable to claim interface.
 I've connected my device before. Now it's not working.

Eta, was running other commands in the background.
 
 Downloaded the voice access on the lg classic flip, any idea on how to remove the icon?







Blocking half my screen.

The icon is part of the Voice Access app.
It cannot be removed

If you figured out already how to use regular adb, forget about webadb.
The regular adb will make you less problems.

I went into the settings and managed to remove the icon from the home screen.
 So you learnt something new..

Also any idea how to make the apps smaller so you can actually see the screen?
 And a pointer like @kosher Cellutions would make like easier when using Google maps and waze.

 Heres two screenshots of the apps on waze and Google maps. Screen is taken over by the next step in the directions.

Quote
Run these commands from a ADB shell.
"wm size 321x428"
"wm density 160"

This makes the internal resolution of Android a bit higher.
The LCD is still 240x320, but you will have more space for your Android apps!
Shut down and restart your phone after, so your wallpaper returns to normal.
The boot screen will always be oddly sized, that's just the nature of what this tweak does.

Reverting:
"wm density reset"
"wm size reset"
This resets your Classic Flip's resolution to 240x320 at around 160 DPI

Lol cute, but does that really pop up in an email? If only.. I have made that mistake way to many times to count.

 Over here I didn't actually forget to post.
 I had taken the screenshots on the actual device, but Indeed i forget to send them to myself to post on the forum, before giving the phone with the apps and all back to a sibling of mine.
    And can't even ask for him to send me the pics as I removed the texting!  :)

  But will run the apps on another device for all those to see..
 I'm Using Voice Access to control the apps, but quite a pain to use. You need the room to be quiet so your phone can understand you(hear you) and takes a few minutes or se extra seconds.

 If anyone has any leads or ideas on how to put together a mouse or pointer like Mr KC (K=Kookoo C=CustomerService) brags about all day, post back here.

 @Something Fishy if my KC comes back he needs a banner on his profile for him to see to relax himself a bit when posting/before posting. ;)

In Outlook it pops up if you mentioned the word attached. It's saved me so many times.

I've had a couple of funny false positives
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Lol, been trying to find someone and decode what he put together.

 Or just buy it for $25 and play with it.
