ive been looking for a week now i need some help connecting to a remote database...i want my app to get data out of the database and update the database.ive tried this http://www.helloandroid.com/tutorials/connecting-mysql-database but i dont understand it.
I'm creating a map application on Android in which users share info. among them. I've., one user's marking on the map should be available to other users. What might be the best design for such type of communication?(like where can i host my database, file exchange format etc)
I'm building a client server android app that has to do with stores and I want (when the user is close to 2 or 3 stores with their database online) my app to understand that he can connect to one of these stores' databases and list them to the screen. (just what is happenning with the available wifis when we want to connect to the internet) How can I achieve that? I hope I made clear what I'm looking for.
I am under the impression that android apps can require other apps to be installed in other to operate.The main example I know is the zxing barCode scanner app, which gets used by a number of other apps.The zxing barcode app is free, but I was wondering what would happen if it wasn't?In particular, what would the user experience be like?How would they be notified, if at all, about the paid app requirement?
Is anyone aware of a listing of apps that require Android 2.1 to run (e.g. apps like Google Goggles, etc.)? I've searched the threads here at Android Forums and elsewhere and haven't been able to find such a list or site.
Now that I upgraded to 2.1, I'd like to "see what I've been missing" and take advantage of the new OS.
So, I'm just switching from the iPhone and I am getting used to how the Droid pushes out it's notifications. The iPhone obviously didn't have apps running in the background and it completely relied on push notifications. I am trying to figure out what programs I can kill in Advanced Task Killer that won't block from notifications coming in. Is there any way to tell?
I am a fresh developer on Googles Android Platform - my HTC Desire arrived last week. Now i need a way to sign in to my existing application (Java, currently running on jetty). The server Application is developed using spring security 3.0.2
In my case, i want to support the following: If a user has set up his Android phone with a googlemail/google-Account (and most users do) i want to use this account credentials to automagically log in to my server app.
Is there any Android framework supporting that use-case? Or are there any alternatives? I read: http code.google.com intl/de-DE/apis/accounts/docs/OpenID.html
How we do sign in with an app on google AppEnging is described here: http://blog.notdot.net/2010/05/Authenticating-against-App-Engine-from-an-Android-app
I want to start making cellphone apps with Android as first choice but not the only one. I have 10 years of experience with Java, C#, C++ in commercial applications and I know that many things and practices for this applications are not valid for cellphones. Where do I start reading? How do I adapt my way of thinking to this new environment as quickly as posible? I plan to make some money with it sometime in the future as an extra income or a career change maybe, who know.
I'm going to start building some apps for android in the new year and i was wondering if people would like to suggest any apps they would like to see developed for their HEROS.Any suggestions welcome - the more unique the better.
I am new to the rooting scene, I can tell you all the apps that are needed for a jailbroken Iphone, but I don't know where to start when it comes to root. Yes I did a "root" search on the market, and I am so ignorant I don't know what the apps are for or capable of.I already know root explorer is a must, other than that I have nothing.
I need to build several slightly different apps from one code base, where only the styling and some variables are different in each app.Right now I use an awful "Constants" class where I comment in/out the correct values for each app, in addition to copying the correct graphic resources to the res/drawable/ folder.One way to make this less painful would be to refer to a Java static Constants#appVariant from styles.xml and splash.xml, e.g like this pseudo-entry:
I rooted my phone and have Damage 2.07.2 running, I am attempting to install Wireless Tether, however something seems off about my Superuser Permissions Application, upon Wireless Tether starting I have Superuser Permissions App come up but the screen on the App is blank, I wait a moment and then have to wait or force close. It seems as though none of the Apps that require root are working properly.
I want to throw onto my G1 from this site (snow rally) Sooo... I download it to my computer from the site, plug my phone into my computer, copy the file to my phone.... (does it matter what folder I put it in?) but where do I go from here? How can I access the file once its on my phone to install it?
Is there anywhere I can watch videos of android apps on line ?? Cyrket doesn't even have screen shots!?!
There are loads you tube videos for the iphone apps... but i can't find anything on android apps.. every app i search in you tube isn't there..and in most cases not even a screen shot of the app... why?
My app, at the first screen, is gonna check a server to offer some options to the user. The options are phrases and the app has to load these phrases and show in the screen. Is it possible to do every time that the user turn the app on? Is it possible to do via web services?
What apps are you all using to watch TV shows online. I got TV.com from the market but it's only certain broadcasting stations such as CBS. Are there any other out there for the HTC Droid Eris for NBC and ABC stations?
I have just got LG P500 early this year, my friend supported me root this phone with CyanogenMod (7.1.0-RC1-Thunderg-KANG) and the Build number was SonyGenMod v1.2 Final. I really want to go back to normal settings or the best settings as I don't really know how to root/unroot or update stuff.
I just want to use the updated version of Android Market. Right now, it is very annoying that I can't go online on WIFI because I can't update apps or go in Google Play. As it comes up with some errors.
What I'm looking for is an app with which I can scan my barcodes from my games and movies, or really any other consumer electronics and it makes a list so I can keep track of what I have; or even for insurance purposes, just in case. Are there any?
I'd like to add widget support to my app, but I suppose that it'll take quite a while until 1.5 is globally rolled out. I assume that widget support means that I need to compile against 1.5 and set up the minSdkVersion to 3, so I'll effectively lock out anybody with 1.1. Other than adding a second version of the same app for 1.5, what's the best way to approach this? Wait a couple of months until 1.5 is globally spread? (Assuming that all carriers even decide to roll it out in the first place.)
I'm trying to deploy an application with an existing SQLite database.I've been reading though the examples that are posted but they are always missing some part of the class. I feel like I'm trying to bake muffins but no one told me to use baking powder.Can someone post a full database helper class for depoying an SQLite database on Android? Edit : Delete old code because it doesn't work.
I'm currently developing a Field-Service application that stores data in the local sqlite database on an android device. At some point, usually after completing the data collection rounds, the local sqlite db is to be synchronized to a remote sybase db on the server.Any suggestions as to how this could be achieved or engineered as a solution? Or even better, are there alternatives to synchronizing data in such an application?
