I am looking for a source for all of the Android docs that can be read offline. It would be great if Google would publish their docs in a linked PDF or Kindle format or even the HTML in a zip file so an individual can reformat the docs themselves into PDF/Kindle.
This maybe be a simple question but how do you format a double into a dollar format? For example I have a value of 4.2. In a textview I would like to see $4.20. Also what are my options for applying the correct currency symbol?
Passing two int values m =0 & s = 11, to below function String formatted = String.format("%1$02d:%2$02d", m, s); returning the value like .0:11 ,What could be the problem? m=0, s=11 -->.0:11 m=0, s=1 --> .0:.1. The 0 added to format the string always coming as '.' (dot). Can anyone know ,from where the number patterns are getting loaded in Android? I gone thorough the code, Its related the following file, androiddalviklibcoreicusrcmainjavacomibmicu4jniutil Resources.java ->localeData.numberPattern. How the pattern for particular locale is loaded, What could be the problem for the above?
I am trying to convert string to date, and then I ma saving this date in a file , which saves in the following format:Mon Jun 21 16:31:24 Asia/Karachi 2010.and then when later I read this date from file as a String, I again want to save it to a Date,
I am wondering if there is a way to print (documents, etc.) from my Android phone. I know there are some apps out there, but they seem to either A) require a PC to act as middleman B) work with only certain printers.I am looking for a way to print to a network laserjet printer.
I am probably doing something wrong here but I have Documents to go (free) and I can not view word documents sent to my work e-mail. I keep getting the message that it can not open it because it is a plain text file.
I have a situation where I allow the user to email a number of documents from my app. The problem is that one request may result in the sending of 3 or 4 emails. Ideally I would like to get all the SEND info at the beginning and at a minimum populate all the fields so that all the user has to do is hit SEND for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc email. All is fine except that the email client seems to accept the email address only when typed in manually: Below is a snippet of my email routine:
Today you can get "Documents to go" for $5.55 (Normally $29.95) but I am not really sure what I would gain over the included Quickoffice ap. I could be wrong but I believe quick office is read only while documents to go allows editing.Anyone else know the difference?
I have quite few books in .doc formats. All the ebook readers for android. I found don't really support .doc. The most of them don't support anything other than this new for me "epub" format. Now I can open the .docs, but would like to read them in a convenient way with the options and extras of an ebook reader software. I found something about online converter from .doc to epub, but would like to have my books accessible without pre-converting.
I've noticed lately that a lot lately that files I've downloaded to my Droid, mostly PDFs though it's happened to a spreadsheet or two, will be viewable at the time, but corrupted and unable to open when I reentered the apparently to view a given file at a later time. Is this something I'm missing, like not closing the file for example? Would that even make a difference?
I searched but could not find anything that would allow someone to sign any type of document, I'm not talking digital signature, but just some app that I could send someone else say a word doc and have them receive it and then sign it via touch screen, then send it back.Zosh for the iPhone is exactly what I'm looking for but for the driod, Sign Documents on Your iPhone Through Zosh App
I was going to hold out for DTG 3.0 but think that I really need this program. Also, I just read on DTG's site that the upgrade to 3.0 will be free. The unknown is when and if 3.0 will ever come out. Anyways, being not too familiar with DTG I have a few questions: 1.How do I get documents to and from my PC? Do I have to email back and forth? If I create a document on my PC and want to take it on the road to edit it how do I get it to my Droid Incredible for editing and then back to my desktop for printing, ect? 2.I use MS Office 2007 on my PC will this work with DTG? 3.What are some overall impressions of how this app actually works?
On my droid x quik office works great to automatically open word and pdf docs. The issue I am having is that once I have downloaded a document I have no way to save it and i can't find it later. I can't find the saved documents or the quick office application anywhere on my phone.
So I've been thinking of purchasing a smart phone, although I know virtually nothing of their capabilities.
I was curious if it was possible to write documents/scripts and upload them onto my website straight from my phone.
I essentially want a phone that could best emulate my linux (text-editing and ftp. Even better it has a terminal/Command-line feature), or a phone useful for web-developers. Would the Android be able to do this?
I'm considering switching to an Android device after using Windows Mobile for years and years... the new Droid from Verizon really looks impressive and I'm not real high on some of the new Windows Mobile devices coming out.One of my needs though will be to read, edit, and save 2007 Office documents. However, I'd also like to have my documents auotsync'd with Google Docs. Is something like this possible?
When I bought my Nexus One, I took the card out of my G1 and put it in my N1. I've developed an app and I know how it works on the Nexus but I want to test it on my G1. I wanted to see how my app looks on a G1 so I connected it to my computer and put my .apk file into the downloads folder on my G1's SD- Card. Ok, now my app is on my OFFLINE G1 but how do I install it? Can I install it with only the native apps on my G1? Right now, I don't see anyway to view the file. I know I can take the chip out of my N1 and put it back into my G1 and then simply download and install it but I would rather not do that.
I use Newsrob, and curious as to what seems to be the most popular way to download RSS feeds for offline use? Do you download Articles / Articles + Images / Articles + Images + Mobile Web Page / Articles + Images + Web Pages?
I am developing an application with TripIt integration and I make a call to their API and I get all my data in JSON format and save it in an object ListTripResponse. This object contains all the data I need over all the application. What I do now, I write this object to a text file (i serialize my object and save it as a file with ObjectOutputStream) and in every activity I read this file. But this file is pretty long and it takes a while to read it. And i have to use and read this object in every activity! Isn't there a better way to do this? I cannot save this file in a database because the structure is to complex.
I'm somewhat unfamiliar with the droid incredible's GPS features. I know it uses A-GPS, but I've been led to believe that the use of cell towers is only to facilitate the acquisition of the almanac or when GPS signal is unavaible altogether. I'd like to use my phone's GPS while camping, at which point I'll be well away from cell coverage. Will I still be able to get a GPS signal. If so can anyone reccomend a topographic mapping software that I can download maps from to my phone?
I found that android handsets connected to my PC via usb often go 'offline' status (by adb.exe devices). And, in this situation, I can not debug or access the handset anymore. My question is, how can I make the handset back to 'device' status. I tried 'adb kill-server' and 'adb start-server', but it didn't help. Why the connection is so unstable, and how can I recover it without reconnect it to the computer.
Google Translate is great, but it's crippling fault is that it needs a data connection to work. Obviously the only time I am going to need language translation tools, is the same time I don't want to pay for roaming data access!!
Are there any good (and preferably free, or minimal cost) language apps for Android that work offline? I need English > Italian initially, but the major languages would need to be supported too.
I am making for my Graduation Project a low price Navigation device, using Android as Operating System.I tried the Native Google's Map-view Control, but it works only Online .. and of-course I want to store maps for offline navigation.The problem with OpenStreetMap that it doesn't provide detailed map for most cities in Egypt.
With all my research and searching in the forums and on the web I could not find the answer. Can the android phones read.doc.vsd .xls .pdf .ppt etc? I believe this is the only thing preventing me from switching over from a blackberry on Nov. 6th. Can anyone let me know?
I am developing an application for the Norwegian Food Control. They want to register a control using an Android device, and when they are done print out a certificate to give to the business directly. Is there any way to do this from Android? I have seen Bluetooth enabled printers, but is there a way for my application to use these? The only thing I could find on the web was an app called Print Share, but this only sent items to print to a network-connected stationary printer. Printers with built in support for Android also just prints photos. I want to print for instance a PDF directly from my phone.
I have a new HTC Hero and TELUS imported the contacts from my old (OLD) Motorola i570 dumbphone. I need to do a lot of cleanup of the data, including specifying proper first/last names, merging postal and e-mail address data from my Palm TX's database, etc. I used "Contacts Manager" to export my phone-based contacts to an XML file on the SD card. It can apparently import an XML file as well, but I can't get it to work. It always complains about importing a directory instead of a file.
Contacts Manager v1.1 Application for Android | Tools
So now I'm looking for another app that can overwrite my phone's contacts database with new data from an XML or CSV file. I would really prefer not to send all this information up to Google.
I created a chess game for Android - Chess Walk, it's on Market for free under title "Chess Walk (BETA)". It has online mode (you can play on Free Internet Chess Server) and offline mode. The built-in chess engine is not very good, I'll probably focus now on improving its strength and style of play.
