Android :: Is It Legal To Customize / Publish Built-in Apps?

May 31, 2009

Like the Alarm Clock, Calculator, etc. I see that the source is available at :
http://source.android.com/
For example, the alarm clock I'm going to modify will "look exactly the same" as the built-in one, but there'll be a lot more functions. Is it legal to extend the functionality of the Alarm Clock and publish it as paid application?

Android :: Apps Built With 1.5 Get A Black-backgound Icon In The Market

May 1, 2009

We've rebuilt a couple of our apps with the 1.5 SDK (but targeting 1.1).

The Market seems to have a bit of trouble with the background of the icons. They appear correctly (with transparent backgrounds) on the desktop, and they appear correctly when the app is downloaded from the Market and installed on the device.

However, they appear on black (not transparent) backgrounds in the Market uploader web page, and in the Market application on the device.

It looks to me as though the Market has a problem when it extracts the icon from the .apk at upload time, with .apks built by the 1.5 SDK.

I just discovered within application manager that there's a 'TURN-OFF' button to easily disable any of the apps which came with the phone.

Is there something similar for ones that I downloaded?

I'd like to try disabling apps without uninstalling them for the purpose of trouble-shooting wake-ups.

KitKat 4.4 :: Can 4.4.2 In-Built Apps Write To SD Card Or Not

Jun 3, 2014

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 running 4.4.2 KitKat. I tried to set the default image, video and documents directories to a folder on the SD card by going to MyFiles -> Settings -> SDCard path. I am taking photos & videos using the default app, not a 3rd party app. Although it is showing me the default is set to the SD card, the images I take using the default camera app all seem to save to the default internal storage /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera.

getting the default image directories to be on the SD card?

If is possible where should I be looking to start trying making some development on this as I haven't done nothing close quite.

General :: Customize Notifications Sound Levels For Different Apps?

Jan 4, 2012

I want to set it up so that when my wife, boss and best friend call me , my phone rings out-loud or vibrates even if the phone is muted or on silent. (Bonus points if you can get it to do this for when they send me a text message as well...)I want to be able to customize notification sound levels for different apps. For example, I want the Text Messaging app and Calendar to make a loud sound when I receive a message, Google Voice to vibrate, Facebook to be silent and only flash a light and Google Talk to be completely silent (but still show up in the notifications bar)I want different light colors for different notifications. For example, green for emails, blue for text, white for facebook and purple for IMs.I

Android :: Making Changes To A Built-in Android Apps

Oct 9, 2010

I've pulled and compiled the latest Android tree. Now I want to make changes to the Android's Browser application.

The environment in Eclipse is already set up. I tried creating the project by selecting "Build project from existing source", but it fails to build because it uses libraries not in the SDK.

Does anyone know how to import the missing source in order to build the Browser app, or even better, how to just copy the source into a separate project and use it like I was developing a regular application?

Android : Possible (and Legal) To Port Droid App To Desktop?

May 2, 2010

I'm just wondering if it would be possible (and legal) to port an Android app to desktop? I'm creating an android game that would work well on PC too (even with the cellphone like layout) and was thinking that maybe I could 'embed' an android emulator with an installer or would that process be a bit hard for a novice Java coder?

Android :: Done With Development - How To Publish Apk

Jul 28, 2010

I'm just about done with development and emulator testing and I'm unclear how to proceed with getting my application ready for actual device testing and them publishing.

Here's my main concern: I have around 600 images that I will need to have loaded (on initial installation) onto an sd card. What is the best way to do this? HTTP? Is there an automated process? Is this handled by an installation script.

Are there documents that cover this type of scenario?

When it comes time for actual publishing the application, again, how will I handle loading the images onto the sd card during the initial installation?

Android :: Is It Legal To Call Start Method Twice On Same Thread?

Aug 1, 2009

The following code leads to "java.lang.IllegalThreadStateException: Thread already started." the second time it is run through on the program This happens the second time updateUI.start() is called. I've stepped through it multiple times and the thread is called and completely runs to completion before hitting updateUI.start(). Calling updateUI.run() avoids the error but causes the thread to run in the UI thread (the calling thread, as mentioned in other posts on SO), which is not what I want. Can a Thread be started only once? If so than what do I do if I want to run the thread again? This particular thread is doing some calculation in the background, if I don't do it in the thread than it's done in the UI thread and the user has an unreasonably long wait.

Android :: Android - Add Menu Item To Android's Built-in Apps

Aug 17, 2009

I'd like to add a menu option to the Android camera app. Is this possible to do using the current SDK? I know I need to add an intent-filter tag in my activity. But I don't know what I should put in the mime type. I want to be able to process the live camera previews if the user selects the menu option. So what do I put into the type tag of the intent-filter? Also I suppose I won't be using ALTERNATIVE or SELECTED-ALTERNATIVE for the category as I want to deal with the whole intent?

Android :: Possible To Publish Two Versions For Same App Simultaneously?

Apr 25, 2010

I am working on an app that uses the rating bar (stars) to allow the user to grade information. The SDK version is 3 (OS 1.5 - <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="3">, but the rating stars are shown incorrectly for devices with OS 2.1. I read some posts in the forum that suggest to upgrade the SDK version to 4 (OS 1.6 and higher), however this will excluse 1.5 users to download my application, and I do not want this to happen, because there are still a lot of 1.5 devices.

This makes me wonder: Is it possible to publish two versions for the same app simultaneously? For instance, publishing one APK for version 1.6 or higher version and another APK for 1.5 version simulataneously in the Market, both intended for the same application.

Is there a workaround for these kind of situations?
