Android :: Programmatically Determine If Application Is MarketPlace Version

Oct 7, 2010

I have an application that's offered in and outside of the MarketPlace.Is there a way of determining from within the code where the application came from? I've got a few indirect methods

1) I could simply infer from whether they have "Allow installation of non-Market applications" ticked.

2) Or I could just make separate builds and make it explicit in the code.

Android :: Application / Marketplace Version

Nov 21, 2009

I have a Motorola Droid and my wife has the HTC Droid Eris. I've noticed that one of the apps that I have installed (24 Clock by Talionis Software) I cannot find when I use the Eris to search the marketplace. I used the "search" function, I scanned the QR code, I searched "pub:"talionis software"". Nothing, nada, zip.Is this because the Eris is running Android 1.5 vs 2.0 on the Moto, or is something more sinister afoot? Is there a difference in the marketplace software?She asked (told) me to put the "24" digital clock on her phone, too, and so far I'm coming up empty.Do some apps not play well with different Android versions?

Android : Way To Determine Programmatically / Install Time For Droid App?

Jun 27, 2010

Is there any way to determine programmatically the time at which an Android application was installed? I don't see anything in PackageInfo, etc.

--EDIT--
To clarify, App A is installed at Time X. At some later time, Time Y, App B is installed. Is there any way App B can know when App A was installed? The link http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2831333/how-to-get-app-install-time-from-android/2920310#2920310 indicates that reading the modify time on the source dir of the App is sufficient. Is this really correct? Why?

General :: How To Determine Exact Version Of Faked Android OS

Oct 22, 2013

I just bought a new new Android smartphone, and electronically and mechanically, it works very well, and gives a nice appearance. It was sold as having Android 4.1.1, and About Phone -> Android version displays 4.1.2. So in this version range, we are talking about Jelly Bean, right?

Software version in the 'About Phone' begins with, '6820_2.3.5_' but whether or not this identifies the OS version, or means something else ...

I'd like to know if there's any way of telling exactly which version of Gingerbread my phone is running? This is useful in deciding which apps should or should not, be installed.

The phone has been rooted, has busybox and a terminal application installed, how to identify the OS that requires this capability.

Android :: Check For New Version In Android Marketplace?

Oct 11, 2010

How does one programmatically check (in Java) if a new version of a certain application has been published in the market place? The examples shown in http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/publishing.html just take you to the MarketPlace. Instead I want to check in my code if a new version of the app is published; and if so, take the user to the marketplace.

I wrote two apps and submitted them to the marketplace last night (been roughly 12 hours now). One was a LITE version of my app and the next was a Standard version.

Android :: Limit To Size Of Application In Marketplace?

Mar 18, 2010

That there wasn't a limit to the size of an application that could be downloaded over the air (OTA) but I wonder if a limit, like that imposed by the Apple App Store (20MB) exists now that the Nexus one is running on AT&T's 3G network as of today.

Android :: Determine If A Specific Activity In An Application Can Be Launched

Jun 9, 2010

Applications can have any number of launchable activities. I know how to get the list of these activities via PackageManager.

Is there a way to determine which activities can be launched via startActivity?

For example, the Documents To Go app has different activities that will start Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF, etc... I am able to launch all o these just fine.

However, it also contains some activities that I am not able to launch with startActivity... If I attempt to do this I get a SecurityException.

I want to be able to determine which activities I can safely launch and which I cannot so I only present the user with a list of activities that I can safely launch from within my application...

Android :: Marketplace Updates / Notified If App Not Installed Through Marketplace?

Sep 28, 2010

I created a signed apk. I uploaded it to marketplace as usual. I also installed a copy of it on a device directly, perhaps as an email attachment.If I upload an updated version of the app to the marketplace, will the device be notified that a new version of the app exists on marketplace? Or does that update-alert system depend on the app being originally installed through marketplace?

Android :: After Downloading An Application With Two Launcher Components From The Marketplace - Clicking Open Will Cause A Crash

Feb 11, 2010

Create a sample application with two launcher icons.

For example, two components such as:

CODE:..................

Either install the application via downloading from the Marketplace, or via AppInstaller. When the message box asks you if you would like to run the application, an exception is thrown:

CODE:.................

The crash happens because com.android.internal.app.ResolverActivity is trying to find a (single) component which resolves the following intent: <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" /> <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

Has been tested BOTH with the AppInstaller, and the actual Marketplace on a real device.

Is there a particular flag that we can use to prevent apps showing up in marketplace which require the phone to have a camera flash /LED? Typical apps are ones which make the phone act like a torchlight in dark. I have seen a tag which prevents apps requiring auto focus in a camera from appearing in the marketplace. Just looking to find out if there is something similar for camera flash.

Android :: Starting Market Application Programmatically

Jun 28, 2010

Is this possible? I have a free and a paid version of an application. From the FREE version I want to provide the ability to for the user to "PURCHASE" the paid version. I want to make it as simple as possible. I am thinking of Starting the market app and passing the identification of the PAID so that the Market app will take them right there. I am trying to make it as easy as posible. No searching etc. No I have no intent of doing the purchasing from within my app. I want to have them press [Get Paid Now] button and then I start the Market app which would then take them to my Paid Application in the store.
