Android :: 150 Character SMS Limit

Apr 25, 2010

I've recently gotten my Andriod phone (on Telus) and have been texting my friends.My phone cuts up text messages to 160 character messages and sends them all to my friends.However, when my friends receive them the 160 character message gets cut in to one 150 and one 10 character message, often splitting up words. So 4 160 character messages are received by their Blackberries (several models) or Samsung (Slyde?) phones as 4 150 character messages and 4 10 character messages.Is there an app that lets you sent 150 or even 140 character messages? Handcent doesn't help with all the split options it has.I tried them all, but it splits at 160 so it doesn't matter.Is there any way to split messages at a lower character count?(All my friends also use Telus (and Kobo which is Telus). Does Telus have a 150 limit? Or is it their phones?I receive messages from them just fine, but that's probably because their phones only send 140 or 150 character messages.)

Motorola Droid :: 160 Character Limit On Texts

Jan 18, 2010

First Android phone and just switched to Verizon. I was sending a text and it was over 160 characters. I sent it and got a message saying that if I am texting a non Verizon customer they will only get the first 160 characters...I've had an iPhone and a Blackberry on ATT and it would split the message up for me and send a couple if it was over 160. Is there no way to do this on the Droid? Do I seriously have to try and squeeze everything into 160 characters like I did when I had the RAZR?

Games :: New Game Description - Avoiding

May 9, 2010

My first android game is nearly ready and its already in the market.

I hope you could give me some good feedbacks.

QR - Code:

Little screen with explanations:

It has global highscore.

Game discription:
The goal is to collect boxes using the touchscreen to control the avoider, while avoiding the red smileys that move around the map to avoid death.
(100 Boxes comes with the next update in 2 days)
You have to collect the 100 boxes that appear one at a time on screen using the avoider. Each time a box is hit with the avoider a new box will be revealed at a different place on the field. With every box picked however,a red smiley will materialize as well. These move across the screen in various speeds and directions. Every box collected gives 1 to 5 points, depending on the time taken to pick it and increase the red smiley speed. Apart from getting less points when being slow, the avoider will also slowly grow bigger if it doesn't pick a box. It regains its original small size after picking up a box.

Every 15 boxes a green smiley will appear from the left hand side of the screen. When the avoider touches it, it goes into 'rage', meaning it will temporarily change into a big evil avoider that can eat the red ones, who now are the grey ones. The rage lasts for about 3,5 seconds, with every red smiley eaten counting as a point, which makes the game easier after the rage.

If you kill more then 15 boxes in a row, you gain the difference between the kills and 15 as bonus points for each pointbox. It will be shown next to the box. One important feature is the 'slowmo'. With every eaten pointbox a bar fills to a maximum of 10 seconds. You can activate it anytime by making an doubletab everywhere on the screen. The red smileys will move very slowly, allowing the avoider to maneuver easily.

The last feature is the bomb. You have one at start and about ~ 50 eaten point boxes it will appear an new bomb falling down the screen. You can only have one bomb at time. You activate it by making a doubletab on the bomb icon. Is has the affect, that all smileys die instantly.

*add I hope you enjoy it. Now I have implemented a integrated highscorelist (scoreloop)

Scoreloop Community | Avoiding. Have fun!

HTC Incredible :: USB Cable - More Precise Description Of Type

May 5, 2010

So the cable advertised that comes with this phone is a micro - USB cable. I went and ordered four cables as spares (2 for the cars and an 1 for each of our work). These cables have not yet arrived so I have not tried them yet. This is what I ordered: RiteAV - USB A to Micro-B Cable 6 ft.: RiteAV: Electronics

However, this morning I forgot my cable that came with the phone at home so I asked around if anyone had one so I could charge my phone. 4 people gave me cables to try that were micro - USB cables. They *look* like the cable that came with the phone but none of them will insert into the phone. So - now I have doubts that what I ordered will work with this phone.

1) Can anyone tell me if they think the above cables will work?
2) Can anyone tell me if there is a more precise description of the phone cables type?
3) Can anyone point me to a source of 6 foot long cables that will work with this phone?

Android :: How To Editing Description / Screenshots On A Published App?

Oct 5, 2010

I have published a free app on the android market. I want to edit the description and add a couple of screen shots. While the "Upload Aplication" screen on lets me make these changes & saves them too, they don't show up in the description of the app when I go the android market. Do I have to unpublish & republish the app (in which case I might run into version issues)? Or else, how do I make these changes to description appear on the android market?

Android : Want App To Display Description Corresponding To User's Responses

Oct 5, 2010

Okay, so I'm writing my first Android app and am basically stuck. The app is a short 4 question quiz with two choices per question. This creates 16 possible results, which I've created descriptions for. I want the app to display the description corresponding to the user's responses on each of the questions after the 4th question is answered. Right now I am storing the values in a string, which is supposed to build upon the previous string answer, after each question. So the first answer is t1, the second answer is t2, and so on. Here is the code for the second question: My problem is that the strings won't hold the values I assign them in the previous question. I have a textview that briefly displays the values returned by the question's answer string (t2 for Question2) and it displays null alpha or nullbeta, depending on the user's response. How do I retain the t1's previously assigned value into Question2 so I can add to it? For instance, if T = "alpha" from Question1, and the user selects button b1 in Question2 how do I make t2 actually equal "alphagamma" instead of "nullgamma"? Is this even possible with strings?

It should be application to iPhone or Android or other mobile platform, where, basically, user can access map with "places of interest" and add it's own "place of interest" (with photo and description). Kind of, community generated sightseeing map. I know it is quite simple and not a groundbreaking idea, but my google-fu is quite weak and I can't find anything like that.

Android :: Detailed Description Of Optimizations In Build Process?

Mar 29, 2010

I've been curious as to all the optimizations that go into the building of an .apk. I'm curious because of two things I've tried in the past to bring down the size of my .apk:

I have had a few large json assets in projects before, as well as a static sqlite database. I tried bringing down the size of the apk by gzipping them before the build process, but the resulting size is exactly the same.

I just today tried pngcrush on my /drawable/ folders. The resulting build was exactly the same size as before.

I would think that perhaps #1 could be explained by the zip process, but simply zipping the /drawable/ folders in #2 result in different-sized files. Perhaps the build process runs something akin to pngcrush?

Regardless, I was wondering if anyone knew where to find a detailed description of all the optimizations in the Android build process. I don't want to waste my time trying to optimize what is already automated, and also I think it'd help my understanding of the resulting apk.

HTC EVO 4G :: Touchscreen - Character Moves By Itself

Jul 8, 2010

I come from the iphone scene and bought an evo. i got the emulators and while playing it i noticed that sometime it starts acting up and my character moves by itself when i hold 2 buttons together then let go of 1. is this just the way the touchscreen was designed? i know the iphone had some kind of multi touch they pattented so it took a while for other phones to come out with pinch ability on their touchscreens. iphone works perfectly for being on-screen buttons but on this phone i seriously cant even play cause the controls are so messed up. sometimes my character is like crouching repeadedly or running right , does anyone else have this problem or is it just my phone? specifically while playing snes emulator since there isnt many other apps that use more than 1 button at a time.

HTC Droid Eris :: 160+ Character Texts Not Working?

Dec 14, 2009

Having an odd problem here. I'm aware of Verizon's limit on text messaging characters but this is odd.I can send texts going beyond 160 characters but when I receive them, that's when the trouble starts. I'll get the text broken up into 2-3 separate texts, but always followed up by another message stating "Media Objects were removed...". Then, the person sending the text receives a message stating their text may have not been received. This is all between Verizon to Verizon customers.Anyone know what's going on? or how to fix it? Did not have this problem with other Verizon phones so I'm guessing it's only applying to the Droid/Eris?

HTC Droid Eris :: Texting Character Count

Dec 14, 2009

I've only seen this mentioned once or twice but one thing that annoys me with the update is the character number that's displayed when typing a text. Why did they have to put a black box counter right in the messaging window when typing in portrait mode? After creating a message, that box covers part of the last word in the first line. And when flipping it to landscape the character box disappears!!?! I shouldn't have to turn the phone to read back what I just typed.The concept of displaying the amount of characters left is a welcome feature but the execution is really poor. I would think it would be obvious to place it in another area outside of the field that you're actually interacting with.
