Android :: Calendar Sharing Between Two Phones

Oct 9, 2010

I have a HTC Incredible and my Fiancee will soon be upgrading to an Ally. I want to share my calendar on her phone, and vice versa. In essence I want my entries to show on her phone or hers on mine so we don't set appointments or end up with conflicting events. I know people have done this, but I'm just not sure on the steps needed to do so.

Android :: Options For Sharing App Data On Multiple Phones

Aug 22, 2010

I'm looking for suggestions for ways to share Android app data between phones running the same app. For example, lets say I have an app that stores a database of book reviews. If person A has a book review that person B doesn't have, what are the options for getting that information from person A's phone to person B's phone?

Currently, I'm aware of the following options:

- Upload data from person A's phone to a server, then download data from server to Person B's phone.
- Write code to have the phones sync up using bluetooth
- Write code to send SMS messages


I'm wondering if there are any more options besides these, and if there's actually a best-practice for accomplishing this?

Ideally, I want the users to simply click a button in the app to make the sharing take place, so I don't want to go down the bluetooth route because that requires the user to do a bit of setup (or assumes they already have set things up in the form of bluetooth settings).

Since the data can be of variable length and potentially large, I believe that would rule out text messaging.

As far as the server route goes, from what I understand this seems to be an ok way of doing things, but my problem is that I have no experience with having users potentially sign in to a server and then uploading data. I don't know of the cost concerns (if any), or of potential security concerns (allowing just anyone to upload data, I'm not sure if I would have to take steps to ensure someone couldn't bypass the app and upload malicious data).

Motorola Droid :: "Sending" Beaming / Sharing Calendar Events

Dec 10, 2009

My wife and I just got Droids, after laboring far too long with PPC-6800s. Obviously, the Droid is better. However, one feature that we both really miss from the 6800 is the "beam" feature. In short, you can beam contacts and calendar events from phone to phone and they automatically show up in the appropriate place.Is there something that is functionally similar with the Droid?I tried Bluetooth File Sharing, but I never got it to work right for contacts or events (I can send generic files to the SD card). I have gotten contacts to share properly using barcode scanner, but I still can't get the calendar appointments/events to share using anything. Any ideas?Yes, I know we could use the same Google Calendar, but we both really use the calendar function, and neither of us need to know 90% of what the other is doing, but it was REALLY convenient to just "beam" an event to make sure we're both on the same page.

General :: Sharing Google Play Account Without Sharing Everything Else?

Sep 19, 2012

I have my Google account also setup on my wife's phone so we can share purchased apps. However, everything else is shared too. For example, even though I have sync for everything on my account turned off, my calendar still showed up on my wife's phone until I disabled it in the calendar app. Also, I can't remove my Google Talk account from her phone so my messages show up on her phone.

This is on a pair of stock Samsung Galaxy S3 phones.

Android :: Ghost Calendar Entries Showing Up In Calendar / Not In Google Calendar

Nov 10, 2009

I'm a new Droid Eris user and have been using Google Calendar for some time.I have a single calendar set up which is syncing with the Eris.I can successfully add/edit/delete entries from both applications and have them show up just fine on the other side.I have a couple of recurring entries that I've since deleted in Google Calendar but are still showing up on my Eris.The unique thing about both of these entries is that they were meeting requests sent to my Gmail address and accepted from there.They have since been cancelled from the original sender and are now removed from my Google Calendar.My calendar entries are labeled as dark blue, and these two show as light blue.I cannot select them on the Eris to edit or delete them.

Android :: HTC Evo - Internet Sharing Via USB

Android :: Sharing Data Between Activities

Apr 7, 2010

I was playing a bit with adapters cursors and activities. Let's assume i have a cursor containing a query I've made (it doesn't matter if it's to DB or content provider). Now lets assume i bind some of the data (first two rows) to a list activity. Every click on one of those items should open a new list activity (i pass on the cursor index in the activity bundle). Now the question is, which sharing method will be most efficient and right from code point of view ?

1. I thought of trying to send the cursor object in the intent itself (hoping it implemented runnable) but I'm not so sure it's that efficient since the query may contain many rows which will need to be parceled, and i the other intents uses only a few (say 4-5 columns of each row) it's a real waste.

2. Thought of trying to create the array list for my other list screen adapter and serialize it to the intent (again use serialize and intent to pass on the data) but again i fear for efficiency penalty.

3. my last solution was to use static cursor member in my first activity, with package permission, it will work and be relatively efficient, but I'm not so sure regarding memory efficiency and code structure, i'm not fond of using static variables in any case.

Is there another sharing method that i don't know off, if two activities share the same process and application, then they also share memory space, then it should be easy to pass variables from one to another, the question is what's the easiest way without serializing ?

Android :: Sharing Data Between Tab Activities

Aug 10, 2010

I did some digging, but couldn't find a clear answer. I have an application with TabActivity as the main activity. I have some computing and network communication that needs to be done when user clicks on the big red jolly "DO IT" button. One tab hosts the form with "DO IT" button, while the other tabs display the results from computing (each tab displays different part of results). The computing is done as AsyncTask as it's supposed to be (afaik).

Now the question is, what is the best way to share the results between the tabbed activities? It can be done with ContentProvider + database from what I have read, although that seems like a bit too much for my needs. I have also considered an option to save the results to some cache file activities could read in onCreate, onResume etc and display the data. Are there any other convenient ways to share the data? (To make it more clear, the data aren't simple, so doing it through preferences etc is impossible.)

Android :: Sharing Data Across Activities

Mar 13, 2009

I was looking out for ways to share data between various activities that one may need to create for his applications . Using "Parcel" and Bundle one can do data exchange , but looks like this is a bit cumbersome process specifically if you have to share large array objects with too many fields.

As android.app.Application maintains global state for the application , we can use this class to store global data and access it across activities. Is this a good way ? Are there any implications on allocating large objects in the your class which extends from android.app.Application ?

Android :: Sharing Code Between Activities

Android :: Sharing Cursor Between Activities

Nov 21, 2010

I think the following scenario is common, but I can't figure the way to implement it:

We have three Activities, and one database. We ask the user for an input to search in the database. The query should get none, one or may results.

If you get none you simple inform the user.
If you get only one, you show it in a new activity with the right view.
If you get many you show them in a list to let the user to chose the right one and then you pass that to the activity which with show the data in the case of one result only.

The problem is that, in order to know the number of results, you need to do the query (and get the cursor) in the first activity. And in the case you get more than one result you need to send the data (pass the cursor?)to the list acitivty. Doing the query again in the list activity can't be right, right?

I'm aware that you can share cursors by using a content provider, but as the activities are from the same application and the data is private (useless outside), don't see the point of making it avaliable to anyone else.

I read here around that you can crate a parcelable cursor and send it in bundle, but I'm not sure if that is the right use.

Android :: Sharing An Object Between Activities

Nov 23, 2010

I have a Weather app with four Activities. The main/launcher activity is 'invisible' using...

android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar"`

Aand is simply used to do a few checks (whether this is a new install, whether a network connection is available etc) before firing off one of the other Activities. The other Activities are UI-oriented - two simply display weather data pulled from a website and the third to provide a location 'picker' so the user can choose which area to show the weather for.

However, all four activities make use of a WeatherHelper object which basically does everything from checking for available SD card storage to maintaining preferences and pulling/formatting website pages.

So, my question(s)...what is the best way to have one instance of WeatherHelper which can be used by multiple activities and where/how are best to create it in my case?

I've been an OO programmer for a lot of years but I'm very new to Android and the design concepts - I've read a lot on the Android Developers site over the past weeks but I've stalled trying to decide on this.

Android :: Sharing Data Between Users

Aug 25, 2010

I'm writing a game that includes an editor for users to create their own levels. I'd like players to be able to share the levels they've created with other players. I'm trying to figure out the best way of implementing that, and hoping for any advice on the subject.

One obvious option is to set up a server for sharing levels. The game would connect directly to the server to let players share their creations or download levels created by other players. This provides seamless integration and a good user experience, but I'd really prefer not to use this approach. For one thing, I don't want the cost and responsibility of setting up and maintaining the server. And I would be taking on a basically unlimited obligation; otherwise, if I decided to shut down the server a few years from now, the game would suddenly lose a large part of its value.

Another idea I had is to use the Android Market as the way to distribute sets of levels. That way, Google is taking care of running the server for me. Clearly there are programs that work this way, since I've seen lots of themes and expansion packs for particular applications in the Market. While this could work, I'm not very happy with it. Asking an ordinary user to sign up for a developer account on the Market and learn how to post files through it is unreasonable, not to mention they would have to pay $25.

The approach I'm currently leaning toward is allowing levels to be exported as ordinary files. People could then just email them to each other, post them on any website they wanted, etc. Ideally I would want to set up a file type association so they could simply open an email attachment or click a link in the web browser, and my game would automatically be launched to import it. I haven't yet looked into whether that's possible.

Android :: Sharing Machine For Development

Dec 10, 2009

We have a fast and powerful machine(Ubuntu 64bit) and we are sharing it for Android development. But when running multiple eclipse (with ADT) instances (by multiple users), we are getting the following error:

Could not open Selected VM debug port (8700). Make you do not have another instance of DDMS or of the eclipse plugin running. If it is being used by something else, choose a new port number in the preferences.

And some of the process names are not shown. It shows a bug with red- circle and a question mark instead.

I tried to change the port number under windows-preferences-Android- DDMS-Base local debugger port to 8800, etc. but it does not seem to help. (closed and reopened eclipse)

I ignored this, selected the process and it shows 8607/8700 (I found the process ID I want to debug using adb shell, ps)

And then I tried debugging this. It throws "failed to connect to remote VM"

Is it just not possible for multiple developers to debug different Android applications using multiple eclipse instances at the same time? If it is possible, can somebody please tell how we can do that?

BTW, it did not allow me to launch emulator, while somebody else is running one. I had to change permission to /tmp/android folder.

Un-installing and re-installing the the application to start from scratch is not a acceptable option for our users,they stand to lose a lot of valuable data.

Android :: Sharing Elements Between Applications

Jun 10, 2010

Here's a quote from Android's Dev Guide: A central feature of Android is that one application can make use of elements of other applications (provided those applications permit it). For example, if your application needs to display a scrolling list of images and another application has developed a suitable scroller and made it available to others, you can call upon that scroller to do the work, rather than develop your own. Isn't it a bad practice to make an app dependent on other apps?
