Android :: Notepad With GoogleDocs Backend To Edit Them On Mac
Jul 7, 2010
I'm really hoping someone here has seen something like this. I'm essentially looking for a notepad app for the Android. But there is a trick to this. I want the notes to be saved and synced as accessible documents on GoogleDocs so that I can edit them on my Mac. On the Android, this should be a simple notebook / notepad app.
I was reading the documentation regarding the Geocoder class and the description says:
"The Geocoder class requires a backend service that is not included in the core android framework."
I assume this means that the proprietary Google Maps API's provides this backend service which routes through the Google Maps service. I searched around trying to find information on constructing my own Geocoder backend service but have come up nil. Is there any way to produce a custom backend for the Geocoder class?
If it helps formulate a better response I'm trying to determine locations based on the GPS coordinates to produce areas such as streets, cities, parks, shopping centers, etc. If something like this already exists then I'd be more than happy to use it, but from what I've seen searching around no such service exists for an Android application.
I would like to write a client application for Android that uses the Google App Engine as a database backend. My Android client would connect to the App Engine to save information, then it would connect later for reports. Is it possible to use the App Engine as a backend like this?
According to the Geocoder documentation, the class provides methods into a backend service which may or may not exist on the device. If the geocoder doesn't exist on the device, theoretically a geocode request will return no results. However, how can one differentiate between no results due to there being no backend geocoder service vs. there being no results because the location makes no sense? My app already requires the Google Maps API, so perhaps this is a moot point; as a secondary question, does the Google Maps API always include a Geocoder?
Alright so i was using oi notepad to take some important notes I needed. Then I pressed menu and pressed 'Revert' and it converted my text into a whole bunch of random letters and numbers... Can anyone help me out? I really need to get these notes back theyre important
Looking for a notepad, which displays notes on the home screen one by one. So instead having when tiny little sticky note icon, you have one big stick note and flick left or right to scroll back on forth through your notepad. Imagine the HTC SMS Widget but instead of flicking through your text messages you are flicking thorough Notes.Does such a app/widget exist?
Are there any apps that would allow me to write a message, convert it to a QR code, then save that graphic to the phone, or even share it via email? Bar scanner is great for sharing links as QR codes, but a notepad I could type in would be cooler.
So I'm forgetful and notepad apps come in handy for me. I was curious which one you all were using and which ones had widgets for the home screen. Ever note just is int cutting it and Astrid is, well pretty in-depth?
I'm looking for a notepad app that, well, looks like an actual notepad. I'm currently using AK Notepad cu z I like how the notes are written on note looking paper, but when you open up the application, all the titles of your notes are just displayed in a black screen. I'm kinda looking for an app, like let's say I put: "stuff to buy," I want the title to also be written on notepad paper, and then when I click on it, the info of my notes will also be written on notepad paper.
I recently started working at a used video game store and have been noticing a bunch of games that I'd like to buy down the road. The only problem is, I see so many that they're easy to forget. I don't really want to pull my phone out and have to scroll through my apps to find Ever note or something to be able to take a name down during work, so I'm looking for something a little specific. If I could have an app that allows a widget on one of my home screens that displays my text and a quick tap of it would allow me to edit it, that would be great. Same goes for looking at the hours that I work and taking them down. It would all be quick and sloppy (like grabbing a piece of scrap paper and noting something) but I could have it cluttering my home screen so I would remember to sort it all out when I get home. Does such an app exist?
I had AK Notepad installed on my Incredible and in that I had some important info. Well, had to do a hard reset and realzied that even though I could reinstall the program, it appears that the notes are not saved anywhere and now I am screwed!To prevent this in the future, is there any way to back up important info that you put into these apps that you get on the Market?
I used to love my Palm software, the memo pad /notepad application because I could password protect memos and then they wouldn't even be visible if someone else got my phone. Anyone know of a good notepad/memo app that has the same? Not one that needs internet connection to use, but one that can be easily synced to my computer?
I would like to add a button to the notes_row.xml that displays at the bottom of the screen "on top of" the actual notes_row allowing the user to still scroll through the list but hit the button if they want. Every time I try to change the layout of notes_row, I get the button on each item in the list. I am pretty new to Android and I think I need to inflate the button somehow so that it is layered in front of the list but doesn't impede the list, how do I go about doing that?
I am doing a custom edit box class. It starts something like: public class Amount Field extends Edit Text and has over riden the constructor to implement the Edit Text widget style However when I implement this on my XML I get an editable Text View instead of the Edit Text (there is only text but not the surrounding white box) and also when I click on it nothing happens, only text color changes. Are there any ideas on why this happens? I've done list components the same way and style is not altered.
In windows text files are displayed with notepad icon. When we double click the particular file it opens the notepad and displays the file. Like that I need to open the file from the download folder in android. I have used the intent-filter for register my ics files mime type. When I select the file in the download folder it just opens my application only. At that time I need to open / read the selected file. How to do this?
I'm looking for a good notepad/memo application that a) can sync between Hero and computer (i.e. doesn't have to sync to the internet, although if that's an option too that's OK) b) I can somehow get all my notes from Outlook in there (so I guess it should be .csv compatible?) and c) privacy option (password protection) - like the good old Palm Treo - you can mark it private, and it gets hidden, and only shows up if you type in the password. Palm users will know what I mean. Is there such an app out there?
I'm trying to run the Android Notepadv3 app on the Motorola Droid. When I am creating a new note, if I rotate my phone so that the view should switch to horizontal, or if I open it up so the keyboard is exposed, the app freezes and crashes.
I haven't modified the program in anyway from Exercise 3 solution (http://developer.android.com/resources/tutorials/notepad/index.html). Any ideas why this is happening?
I did not understand the notepad sample in android.when i import this to my workspace it shows there are no projects.Its having sqlite code i want to see how this application running,Please explain it once.
I'd like to dedicate this thread specifically to the evaluations and feedback for various notepads and notepads that sync.
I'd like to keep this separate from ToDo lists, lists, tasks, task lists, etc. as I've dedicated that to another thread ( Todo Lists - Tasks - Lists - Task Lists - Evaluations and Reviews ).
Doing a search for notepads on the Android Market comes up with so many results. Rather than downloading and trying out so many, I'd like to know which notepad is recommended.
I've been searching for notepads that sync - preferably with Google Notebook. Google notebook isn't very popular these days and they appear to be phasing it out and gearing users towards Google Docs.
On the iPod Touch (and iPhone of course), I've been using an App called gNotes which syncs with my Google Notebook. However, I haven't been able to find any Android applications that sync with Google Notebook.
I did, however, find at least a couple of Apps that sync with Google Docs.
Notepads that Sync with Google Docs
I've experimented with two:
Gdocs Notepad with Sync http://www.androlib.com/android.application.com-mobdev-notepadgdocs-qAAB.aspx Website: [url]
Gdocs notepad is a basic and simple application that creates a dedicated folder on your Google Docs and syncs basic text notes. Pretty basic and straightforward.
Gdocs [url] Website: [url]
This is an App that syncs with Google Docs, lists all your Google Docs, allows you read/view/edit most of your Google Docs, etc.
What are some other notepads you've downloaded and/or experimented with?
I've been reading up on:
Notepad with Sync: [url]
Seems similar to GDocs Notepad with Sync. However, it syncs to Helipad - Product overview , not your Google Account. I didn't bother downloading this because one commenter mentioned that the Application was great, but helicoid wasn't, so she switched to Google Notepad with Sync.
3banana Notes: [url]
I haven't downloaded this, but this is a 4-1/2-Star App that seems to sync with the Google Account.
Note Everything: [url]
I haven't downloaded this. Curious to know how users here rate and evaluate this.
Please comment on other Notepad Apps. Please indicate if they
1) Sync 2) If sync, syncs to Google notebook, Google Docs, some other website. 3) Does not Sync 4) Sends or uploads to Facebook, Twitter, copies text to Gmail, Email client, etc. 5) Offers folders 6) Other unique features
