I am trying to install app inventor on my Samsung intercept.I have gone through the steps in the set up computer and phone.When it was time to plug in the USB connection the two notifications did not display.Please, if anyone knows of any additional steps I need to take I would appreciate some advise.
Well, I'm a soon-to-be Galaxy S Captivate owner, and I've been reading and watching practically everything I can find about the phone every single day. I even check this forum every three hours or so!I've finally ran out of video reviews and 9-page written and 10 minute video reviews to read and watch. I'm an Android virgin, so I want to know exactly I'll do the moment I turn on my device and get a chance to play with it the first time! I've gotten some really great ideas of what I'm going to get already from Lifehacker, but what I want to know is what your guys' opinion, pro Galaxy S owners. What are your favorite apps? Discuss! <3(Yes, one-click lag fix will be my first download )
I would have to say in no order: Google Goggles Google Maps 4.1.1 Live wallpapers Speech to Text is AWESOME Google Gesture Ultrachron w/ voice set Barcode Scanner Microsoft Tag Reader Spare Parts Add your favs and let's rock this phone!
As some of you know m in love with the camera on this thing. it has completely taken away the need for me to have a point and shoot so i figured i would make a thread where we can all post our favorite pics taken with your vibrant!
I've read through the note of the topic "Developing Android REST Client Applications" from Google IO 2010, but I still have no idea on how to start. Can anyone show me a code example? Either the code for "Option A: Use a Service API" or "Option B: Use the ContentProvider API"
Requirement: 1. The program must be on top of SDK only, no hacking! 2. When a TEXT SMS is arriving to Android mobile, the program must intercept the TEXT SMS to analyze the SMS content (access the whole SMS data) 3. In terms of the SMS content, the program determines if the SMS is erased as it doesn't exist. No notification, no update to Inbox UI. 4. Power cycle the Android phone, the SMS is not seen at Notification or message Inbox
Can any one help with the solution? Or which API shall we look into?
I am wondering if it is possible to intercept an open application call, for any (most of the) installed application. Or at least for opening the Activity having the intent-filter's action set to Main (if it exists for an app).
I would like to know what you guys recommend as an email client. The stock captivate email is confusing. It's hard to see which email is new and which ones have been read already.I'd like to be able to see my gmail, and yahoo mail on one screen if possible. It would also be a plus if the icon would be in the dock and display how many unread emails i have.
I'm just coming from an iPhone 3G to the Captivate. I'm having a few frustrating issues that I can't seem to get resolved....I'll start with the email client... 1) There seems to be a DNS flushing issue when the Captivate moves from WIFI to 3G. I run a split DNS with the WIFI on a RFC1918 network and of course a routed IP when connected to 3G.The problem seems to be that as the Cap moves on and off WIFI as I move in and out of range of the WIFI signal and the Cap acquires it's new IP address, it does not expire the DNS cache and there when it tries to contact the IMAP server when going from WIFI -> 3G, it's doing so via the RFC1918 address and therefore doesn't work.Has anyon else seen that? 2) I have the email client set to get new email every 5 minutes. But it sometimes never updates the inbox until I actually go in to that inbox, then it updates. 3) It doesn't seem to keep a history of email addresses I've used for fast completion. For example, if I email Bob@accountemps, every time I send Bob an email, it doesn't remember that I've sent Bob an email before, and I have to type the entire address again.y primary use of the smart phone is an email client, and these issues are really frustrating to me.
Is there any way where I can detect that the screen is about to turn off, so I can do some work *before* it happens?I need this to work around bug 3755: OpenGL apps sometimes crash when the screen gets turned off because they don't get surfaceDestroyed /surfaceCreated() events. Simply put, I need to shut down OpenGL before the phone has a chance to detach the GPU. The only events I seems to be getting when the screen turns off are onPause() and onWindowFocusChanged both of which turn up *after* the GPU detaches, by which time it's too late.
I plan to develop Android application which will encrypt/decrypt voice data such that parties can communicate using secure channel. So the question is: how to intercept voice/audio data during GSM call? Is it possible or not? Should I use Android NDK or something else?
Let's suppose that we have the following scenario: something is playing on an android device (an mp3 par example, but it could be anything that use the audio part of an android device). From an application (android application :) ), I would like to intercept the audio stream to analyze it, to record it, etc. From this application (let's say "the analyzer") I don't want to start an mp3 or something, all I want is to have access to the audio stream of android. Any advice is appreciated, it could a Java or C++ solution.
I want to intercept the OnTouch event in a PopupWindow, but it failes everytime. Here is the code snip:
When the activity started, I can click the button to show the popup window correctly. But after that, nothing happens when I touch the popup window's view. But if I touch any where outside the popup window, the log Log.d("Demo", "layout::onTouch >>> view: " + v + ", event: " + event); will work.
It looks like when I touch the view of the popup window, the touch event has been consumed somewhere?
I have a huge issue with email. I successfully added my Google Apps email account using POP. The client does indeed download the emails, though very slowly, but the main issue I have is that as soon as I manually check for new emails or the Captivate automatically does it (I set it to 15 minutes intervals), all the emails in the inbox on the phone disappears. After much investigating, it turns out that all emails that was already downloaded prior to a reload, were sent to Trash in Gmail. So when I log in online, every message that was originally downloaded to the phone, was now found in Trash. The only workaround I have found in order to keep the emails on the phone, is to delete them instantly. That way they remain in the Deleted Messages until I manually remove them.
So my question is: does the default email client work like it should at all or should I replace it with something. And if so, with what? It's a shame that a new phone such like this have issues with such a basic task.
I am displaying web content in a WebView but I am having issues to identify when the user presses a cancel button which should close the current window. The cancel button is defined as follows in the page source code: <input value="Cancel" name="cancel" type="button" onclick="window.close();There are other buttons which I am able to handle using shouldOverrideUrlLoading() but since this cancel buttons does not attempt to open a new page, this is not working. Does anyone know if there is a way to intercept this cancel? By the way, when cancel button is pressed nothing happens.
Is there a way to intercept an SMS with BroadcastReceiver as for example here but without showing any notifications to the user and immediately deleting the message that contains for example some keyword
What I need is to have some communication between android phones, one to one, and I thought that sending SMS messages would solve the problem, but the SMS notification are not needed for that, maybe the WAP PUSH messages would better for that but I have no idea how to send them from android phone.
I'd like to be able prompt my app to open link (instead of the browser) when the user clicks on a URL of a given pattern. This could be when the user is on a web page in the browser, or in an email client, or a WebView in a freshly minted app.
For example, click on a YouTube link from anywhere in the phone and you'll be given the chance to open the YouTube app.
