Android :: How To Make Sure An App Really Compiled From Said Source Code
Jun 24, 2010
A lot of Android apps are open source, but how can we make sure the person who finally uploads to the Google Market does not include some spyware just before uploading?
Background: Mobile apps security seems to be a growing concern, and I would like to reassure the users of my Open Source Android app. Solutions that require to modify the deployment process or application content are acceptable too.
I want to make my phone communicate with computer with socket. I have try many kinds of source in internet. None of them works. The phone always display "HelloWorld <ActivityName>". Log.d() seems not work on my phone, because, I have used that, but nothing was printed.
I was able to setup my android project to call a native function from a .so file. And actually I need to add box2d to my project, but I when I include the header files, it won't make. So basically my problem is how do I tell the make file to include a whole folder with header and cpp files.
I tried adding the path directly to the include statement just for the sake of testing it. The error goes away, but new errors come out.
For all of you android devs out there that have the Android simulator running on your computer, you know that there are a few built in apps that are already installed on your 'phone'. I had an idea for an app that would utilize a function that is already being done in the spare parts app that comes already installed. I went on to the android developer site, dug through the source code files, and found the spare parts app, and am now trying to set it up so that running it from eclipse on my machine actually runs the app in the simulator.
In other words, I want to be able to make changes to and adjust some of the things in that app for my own needs. But it won't compile, because of a number of different errors. How do I get that source code running on my local machine? Is there some special trick that I just don't know about? I thought that if I could get the source code than the rest would be easy, but it isn't being too easy.
Is there an easy way of getting the Android source code? More than anything else, I just want to be able to look at the source for some of the standard apps, such as the Android Market, Contacts, etc. I took a look at dev.android.com, but I don't see an easy way of getting the source I'm looking for.
I've been reading this post on the android developer blog about the twitter client and UI patterns.It mentions the source code will become available, does anyone know if this has happened yet and where I can find it? I've drawn a blank.
I had a nokia 5233 with me before I bought an android and I liked an app very much (and I can't find a similar app in the play store). I have got the java source code of the app and now I want to know that is it possible to create an android app with that source code?
