Android :: Distributing An App Packaged With Just Emulator

Apr 22, 2009

I was wondering if anyone has ever been able to distribute their app in a bundle with an emulator?

The reason I want to do this is that I have some friends who don't have android phones, but I'd like them to be able to play with my app so that they can give me feedback. I've previously sent them screen casts, but I'd really like them to be able to get interactive with the app.

Now I could ask them to get all installed with the whole android framework, eclipse etc,. but some of them are not so technical. Ideally what I'd like to be able to do is create a package that is the android emulator with my app and perhaps 1 or 2 other related apps pre- installed, so that they can download it, open it and run it interactively on their computers?

Has anyone ever tried this?

So far I found that I can run the emulator standalone, and I assume I could probably send them just that and it would run. However the adb tool is needed to install apps. I could send them that too, and ask the to run an 'adb install myapp.apk' from the command line, but at the moment I can't even seem to do that myself.

Running the emulator standalone, the adb tool can't seem to see it:

samuel-josephs-computer-2:tools samueljoseph$ sudo ./adb devices List of devices attached

I just get no list of devices ...

I have previously used the adb tool to install apk files, but that is after I had started the emulator from eclipse - of course even then I always have to restart eclipse and the emulator two or three times before I can get the connection (I am on OSX 10.5.6., eclipse 3.4.1) ...

Android :: Running A Compiled - Packaged-with - V1.6 Application On V1.5

Nov 3, 2009

I have an application which is based Android 1.5 but for enabling different screen types support I have to compile and package it with v1.6. When I install and run the resulted APK on my 1.5 emulator, everything works fine except that "Preferences" activity crashes every time I launch it!

When I revert back my API dependency to 1.5 and remove a few 1.6 specific config blocks from AndroidManifest.xml and compile/package it with 1.5, everything works just fine!

Below is the exception I get when it crashes:

Android :: Provide A Database Packaged With .APK File Or Host It Separately On A Website?

Oct 29, 2009

Here is some background about my app:

I am developing an Android app that will display a random quote or verse to the user. For this I am using an SQLite database. The size of the DB would be approximately 5K to 10K records, possibly increasing to upto 1M in later versions as new quotes and verses are added. Thus the user would need to update the DB as and when newer versions are of the app or DB are released.

After reading through some forums online, there seem to be two feasible ways I could provide the DB: 1. Bundle it along with the .APK file of the app, or 2. Upload it to my app's website from where users will have to download it

I want to know which method would be better (if there is yet another approach other than these, please do let me know).

After pondering this problem for some time, I have these thoughts regarding the above approaches:

Approach 1: Users will obtain the DB along with the app, and won't have to download it separately. Installation would thereby be easier. But, users will have to reinstall the app every time there is a new version of the DB. Also, if the DB is large, it will make the installable too cumbersome.

Approach 2: Users will have to download the full DB from the website (although I can provide a small, sample version of the DB via Approach 1). But, the installer will be simpler and smaller in size. Also, I would be able to provide future versions of the DB easily for those who might not want newer versions of the app.

Android :: Find Out If Resource Is Used

Sep 21, 2010

I am looking for an efficient way to find out if a resource (mostly a drawable) is used in java or in an XML file.

The problem is, that on my current project the drawables are changed often and now I have some drawables, which might never be used.

Is there a tool/way to find those unused drawables without search each filename in the whole project?

General :: Where To Find Android SDK

Apr 17, 2014

I believe its the android SDK that allows you to make android apps on your pc. I have a Dragon Touch 9 inch 8 gb 512 memory tablet and on amazon, it showed the notification on top and the back, home and recent apps on bottom. I don't know how to enable this (if you can), But if i cant, i will just make a app that does this.

Android :: Can't Find Many Top Apps In Market

Nov 19, 2009

I have a new Droid Eris and have been having a really hard time finding apps that I read about in different places. I often find myself reviewing a very popular, top-rated app, then not being able to find it no matter how I search in the Market. These aren't usually obscure, ancient, one-off apps. I usually am hearing about them in 'top Android apps' articles, etc.

I usually search by the exact name, then alternate spellings. And I recently got the Barcode Scanner and am scanning the QR codes over at to see if it's any easier. But I haven't gotten ANY of those to come up.

- What gives with the Android Market? Could I have something setup improperly?

I live in Los Angeles, so I doubt it's a location issue.

Some sample apps I couldn't find just tonight:
- Camera ZOOM FX
- Voice Trans
- Voice Text
