    Any way to prevent apps to use internet

    Hey, when I watch live hockey games with flash player and browser I would need all internet capacity to run the stream. Is there any way to prevent all the other apps to use internet connection while I'm watching hockey?

    I pretty much have all my apps set to only do something when I ask. In other words nothing is set to automatically sync. That's the only way I know.

    I'm not sure if I can force for example google play or the other google apps not to autosync.

    Yes you can. The Google app even has a setting that tells it not to notify you of updates, so no syncing. None of my apps sync until I open them and so far I haven't see any app that didn't have a setting that allowed you to stop syncing. My G-Mail doesn't sync until I open it and sync, my regular mail does sync until I tell it to sync, the weather widget doesn't update until I tell it to update and on and on.

    You were right! After preventing google apps to use my location, my wifi speed increased a lot. Thank you.

    Well, that's one way to do it.
