Android :: Allow User To Select Folder On SD Card

Aug 1, 2010

I'm looking for a way to allow a user to press a button to browse the contents of the SD card, and then select a folder, whose path will be returned to the application. Similar to how you pull up the "Browse..." dialog on Windows for installations.

HTC Incredible :: Select Multiple Picture Files And Move Them To Another Folder (like "Select All" With Windows)?

May 9, 2010

New to Android and starting to work on file mgmt. I set up some subfolders on my SD card for pictures. I have been moving pictures from one folder to another, but I can only move one at a time. Is there a way to select multiple picture files and move them to another folder (like "Select All" with Windows)? This is the sequence I've been following: Use the Edit Icon in the Astro taskbar, select Move, then going to the directory folder I want to move them, and hit Paste. Moving one file at a time is taking for ever.

Media :: Select Music Albums By Folder

Feb 10, 2010

I have a bunch of individual folders that I'd like to select, so I can add them to a playlist. Problem is, a lot of these folders contain Various Artist compilations, so I don't want to have to select each artist to program into a playlist.

If I could add the folders in question, that would be so much simpler.

Android :: Select Folder And Work Out When Intent Complete?

Nov 8, 2010

I am making a wallpaper and I want the user to select a folder. So I have a button in the preferences that launches an intent to open an image, but what I want is actually just a directory (I guess in the worst case I can strip the filename from the end). So thats my first problem. The second problem is how do I get notified of when the intent is complete?

public class FilePreference extends DialogPreference implements View.OnClickListener {
public void onClick(View v) {
// open up a gallery/file browser
Intent intent = new Intent();
intent.setType("image/*");
intent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
getContext().startActivity(Intent.createChooser(intent, "Select Folder"));
}

Android :: Select Android Applications Sharing Data Without User Notification

Sep 30, 2010

Come one, come all -- let's gather and act shocked, shall we? It's no secret that Google's Android Market is far easier to penetrate than Apple's App Store, which is most definitely a double-edged sword. On one hand, you aren't stuck waiting a lifetime for Apple to approve a perfectly sound app; on the other, you may end up accidentally downloading some Nazi themes that scar you for life. A curious team of scientists from Intel Labs, Penn State and Duke University recently utilized a so-called TaintDroid extension in order to log and monitor the actions of 30 Android apps -- 30 that were picked from the 358 most popular. Their findings? That half of their sample (15, if you're rusty in the math department) shared location information and / or other unique identifiers (IMEI numbers, phone numbers, SIM numbers, etc.) with advertisers. Making matters worse, those 15 didn't actually inform end-users that data was being shared, and some of 'em beamed out information while applications were dormant. Unfortunately for us all, the researchers didn't bother to rat out the 15 evil apps mentioned here, so good luck resting easy knowing that your library of popular apps could be spying on you right now.

Update: A Google spokesperson pinged up with an official response to the study, and you can peek it after the break.Update 2: Looks as if the full study (PDF) has been outed, with the 30 total apps named. Here they are: The Weather Channel, Cestos, Solitaire, Movies, Babble, Manga Browser, Bump, Wertago, Antivirus, ABC - Animals, Traffic Jam, Hearts, Blackjack, Horoscope, 3001 Wisdom Quotes Lite, Yellow Pages, Dastelefonbuch, Astrid, BBC News Live Stream, Ringtones, Layer, Knocking, Barcode Scanner, Coupons, Trapster, Spongebob Slide, ProBasketBall, MySpace, ixMAT, and Evernote.

I'm at a loss for what folders to add and name.

Android :: Sd Card & Folder Privacy?

Sep 13, 2010

Firstly, when I get my larger (32gb) micro sd card, would I be right in saying that it's just a case of copying everything from my existing card onto my PC, and then from my PC back onto the larger card?

And the other thing, is there a setting on the Galaxy GT-i15700, or one I can download for it, that wil allow me to 'password protect' a folder that I create ?

Android :: Creating Folder On Emulated Sd Card

Apr 21, 2010

I'm currently only testing things in an emulator due to not having an Android device as of yet. I'm honestly holding out for some of the new 1 Ghz machines to come out and do some comparisons. Anyway, I would imagine one would easily be able to make whatever folders they choose on an sd card, but on the emulated one, I can only seem to push entire folder contents or single files to the root. The adb help doesn't appear to have a command to make a folder. Is this not possible, or am I just missing something?

Android :: Any Way To Put Entire Folder From Assets To SD Card?

Oct 8, 2009

What I am trying to do is simply copy over entire folder full of mp3 files onto sdcard within an app. I am doing this out of "assets" folder because raw folder does not allow mp3 files to be named the way I need them to. Here is what I dug up so far but not sure if this will work. I am lost.

InputStream ins = getResources().getAssets().open(""); int size = ins.available();
// Read the entire resource into a local byte buffer. byte[] buffer = new byte[size];
ins.read(buffer); ins.close(); FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("/sdcard/myfolder/");
fos.write(buffer); fos.close();

HTC Desire :: Cannot Find Sms Messages On Sd Card / Know That Folder?

Sep 17, 2010

I just got my desire back from repair. I thought everything would be backed up, and that I could just load my backup file once the phone was started for the first time. But apparently, this is not the case... HTC has stopped the support for this backup from Android 2.1 to 2.2 they told me in their phone support.... They advised me to download a file manager, and locate e.g my sms messages, and recreate them from there. However, I have not been able to find that folder? I can se lots of other old data, so the sd card has not been formatted...

2.1 Update :: Can't Find User Guide On The SD Card

Nov 26, 2010

I didn't bother backing up my applications, as I had quite a few installed that I didn't need to keep.  I made a simple list on paper, and reinstalled everything afterwards. One irritation is the the User Guide application now says that it can't find the User Guide on the SD card, and offers the online version. Does  anyone know if the 2.1 version of the onboard User Guide can be downloaded, what  it should be named, and what folder it should be in? Or could someone even e-mail it to me, with instructions as to where it should be put?

Motorola Droid :: Way To Create An Icon Link To SD Card Folder?

Is there anyway to create a icon on my Droid desktop pointing to a specific folder on my SD Card. I have a folder where I store all my movie videos that I would like quick access. The Gallery is much too slow having to search all my pictures and videos on my entire 16GB SD Card to populate and it doesn't even display the video name (its difficult to identify movies by the small thumbnail it displays). The best way to launch these currently I find is to traverse the directory tree using an explorer app, but I prefer a quicker method if possible.

HTC Droid Eris :: Put Files In A Secure / Passwored Folder On SD Card?

Dec 8, 2009

I'm sure I'm not the only one with naughty pics of my girl friend or other girls on my phone that I don't want the girl friend, other girls, or friends and people in general to see...

Is there a way to put these files in a secure/passwored folder on the SD card that the "Albums" or any other video/pic app can't access? Besides keeping my phone locked, I don't want someone accidently flicking through the photo album and stumble upon these. Also I noticed even switching the Wallpaper shows all the pics on the phone.

I have an idea of an app called "Stash" where you can move any files (maybe even contacts/texts) to a particular place on the SD card that the phone can not find.

I have tried Photo Burst. It crashes and I had to reset the phone. I have tried Picture Viewer but the latest version does not pan at all. The only way to do something like this with the stock viewer is to have all your photos in the root of the sdcard in folders or within download. Not really the neatest way of doing this.
