Android :: Reading And Writing To File In Internal Storage

Jun 27, 2010

I'm writing a simple budget app for myself, and I'm having trouble figuring out how to write to internal storage. I don't seem to be writing to the file properly and I can't find any more in depth examples than the Data Storage article on developer.android.com. Basically, I'm trying to write a test float to the MyBalance file, then read it into balance. In my actual code I use try/catch statements around the file in/out operations but I skipped them to make the code more readable.

float test = 55; float balance; byte[] buffer = null;
FileOutputStream fos = openFileOutput( "MyBalance", Context.MODE_PRIVATE );
fos.write(Float.floatToRawIntBits(balance));
fis.read(buffer); //null pointer
ByteBuffer b = ByteBuffer.wrap(buffer);
balance=b.getFloat();

That's the gist of it, anyone see what I'm doing wrong? I went ahead and converted to/from String but I still don't think the file is being created. I have an if statement that reads from it if it exists in onResume() and it isn't being run. Lemme post some of my code. Here's how I'm writing the file, (setbal is an EditText and balanceview is a TextView):

balance = Float.valueOf(setbal.getText().toString());
balanceview.setText(setbal.getText());
balstring = String.valueOf(balance);
for (int i = 0; i < balstring.length(); ++i)
try { fos.write((byte)balstring.charAt(i));
} catch (IOException e) { e.printStackTrace();
}
I check if the file exists in onResume() like so:
File file = new File("data/data/com.v1nsai.mibudget/balance.txt");
Is that where an internal file for that context would be stored?

Android :: Application That Reads File From Internal Storage On Startup

Aug 3, 2010

I am writing a app that reads a file from the internal storage on startup. I have followed the guildelines here:
http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html#file...
It successfully works on the emulator, and I can find the file my app created under
DDMS > data > data > com.MyAppName > files.

Now I would like to install my app on a real device, but do I need to explicitly copy the file onto the device? If so, what's the location should I copy the file to? Or will the file be created when I install my app? I need some pointers or guidelines, I'm quite clueless about the device. Or perhaps if anyone knows any keywords for me to search for an answer.

HTC Incredible :: Trouble Mounting Internal Phone Storage And Sd Storage

Aug 22, 2010

For some reason my Incredible won't mount both the internal phone storage and the SD card storage at the same time. What I mean is...when I plug my phone into my PC I only get a single popup asking to mount the phone's SD card storage, but not the internal phone storage.If I remove the SD card (or unmount the SD card using menus on the phone) and then toggle the connection type from Disk Drive, to Charge only, and then back to Disk Drive (to burp the connection), the internal phone storage will mount, but the SD card won't mount because it has been removed.When I connect my wife's incredible, my computer sees both the SD card storage and the internal storage (as expected) and gives me prompts for both. I took the SD card from the problematic phone and put it in the "good" phone and there are no issues at all (IE.. both the internal storage and SD storage mount). This of course means there is no issue with the SD card.

Android :: How To Do EXIF Reading And Writing

Jun 17, 2009

I've been looking around on the net and in this group, but i have not found any java package that can read and write EXIF data.

I tried Sanselan. They say they don't use ImageIO/AWT, but they actually do use AWT. The class can not be loaded because there is an AWT dependency:

CODE:......

What i want is not so much creating my own EXIF data, but preserving a JPEG's meta-data (EXIF). I'm planning to load a JPEG, edit its bitmap and write it out again to a(nother) JPEG with the same meta-data as its original.

Android :: Serial Ports Reading / Writing?

Aug 16, 2010

I've had an inquiry about whether my Android app can interface with a serial device via USB cable. Before I invest too much time in this path, I'd like to know: Is this even possible? Some previous threads indicate Android won't do host USB. Would it require root access and/or the NDK? Would it be better to advise the potential client to look for a serial blue tooth adapter? I can see that there is a Blue tooth Sock class which may do the job.

Android :: Download Here Library For Reading - Writing EXIF From Your JPEG Images

Jul 23, 2009

Android does not provide an Exif Reader or Exif Writer in its SDK (it has a native implemenation, though, but that API is private).

The Sanselan library, however, does provide a full fledged set of functionality for reading and writing Exif metadata.

However, Sanselan pur sang cannot be included in an Android Project. It references classes and packages that do not exist under the current version of Android (e.g. ImageIO).

Therefore, I made a quick cut of Sanselan 0.97, cutting out all the classes that prevent it from being used on the Android platform. It is a quick cut and it may have some issues. However, I got its exif reading and writing to work for my application and it looks like its working quite well. Reading and writing raw image-data is, however, not possible in this cut. This has been cut out.

HTC EVO 4G :: Dissapearing Internal Storage

Jun 29, 2010

Is anybody else getting missing internal storage?

This has been happening since I got the phone on launch day. This is my first Android phone so maybe this is supposed to happen. But when I reboot the phone, internal memory disappears.

As a test I didn't install or uninstall any apps, didn't get any updates, nothing. After two days I reset the phone and was at 327 megs of storage. After the reboot I had 320. This has been happening every few days.

I thought it was from installing an app. In one example I had 360 megs, installed an app that brought me to 357, did a reboot after a few mins, and had 354 at startup.

I've tried this on another phone (my girlfriend has one) and she gets the same thing. I've tried wiping my phone just to be sure and same thing.

HTC Incredible :: What To Do With Internal 6.6GB Storage?

Aug 25, 2010

Most apps cannot see this, and I doubt they ever will unless this becomes more commonplace. What do you do with your internal storage? I have my camera set to store there, but I have a slideshow app i use when charging and it only reads the SD card so I move the "keepers" to SD. My mp3's and divx movies are also on SD. So out of 6.6gb internal storage I usually have about 6.5gb free. How do you use yours? And do you feel app developers will ever write apps to access the internal storage?

Android :: What Are Limits Of Internal Storage?

Jan 12, 2010

1) Our Android app will store data in a built-in SQLite DB. I see the DB can throw android.database.sqlite.SQLiteFullException, but there's no exact info in API what is the limit. Could anyone tell what are the size limits for a DB in order not to get into the SQLiteFullException? I assume DB will store data in device's internal storage (versus SDCard). Am I right? Given SQLite DB is just a file, probably the DB size is limited with free internal storage space. Again - Am I right? If yes, then what is the internal storage size on Android? How to detect it? Does it vary on a device model basis or OS version basis? 2) We'll also need to save app settings. I think SharedPreferences will fit nicely. However the question is - are SharedPreferences saved to the internal storage too? If yes, then is it the same storage where the DB stores its file?

HTC Desire :: Internal Storage Keeps Rising / Fix It?

Aug 4, 2010

I have the Internal memory Widget on my homescreen and in the past few hours the amount of internal memory used has jumped from 92mb/147mb to 118mb/147mb. I'm struggling to figure out why.

I have Mobile Internet enabled as always, and I use several well know apps and widgets like Sky News, BBC News, Chomp SMS, Twitter, Facebook for Android, etc. I've checked every app using Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and only a couple of apps had a cache size over 1mb, most didn't have stored data at all. Facebook had about 4.5mb of cache data, but all this adds up to a total much less than the 26mb increase that the memory widget is reporting.

Anyone know what could be filling the storage?

HTC EVO 4G :: Limited Internal Storage And Bigger SD Card

Jun 17, 2010

My internal storage is currently 337 MB. I was planning on buying a bigger SD card, either 16GB or 32GB. I'm very new to everything with Androids and have never been big with computers. I read that if I want a lot of applications and everything that I would have to root the phone because the internal storage is so limited and then move everything to the SD card. I tried rooting the phone, it didn't work (I didn't mess up anything with the phone, probably just missed a step), but considering I still know so little about all this I decided it would be better to wait with rooting. Will I be fine with not rooting my phone and picking up a bigger SD card or will my phone run very slow once I start installing a lot of stuff?

HTC Incredible :: Utilizing Internal Storage Ability?

Jun 7, 2010

Are we ever going to be able to utilize this storage with anything other than a file browser or the stock apps? One of the larger selling points to this phone was the fact that it had some internal storage. It is useful, pretty fast and it's right there. I was hoping that HTC would get right on this and have an update out, but I've yet to even hear HTC admit that there is even a problem. I don't remember being told that my internal storage would only be available with the apps that came stock on the phone.

I, currently, have decided to keep my music on the internal storage. It frees up my SD card for storing stuff from apps and the like. I've got a couple short videos on the internal, too. I've got just over 2500 songs which weigh in just under 5 gigs, on my phone. I would love to be able to use TuneWiki or something that was a little better about getting and showing album covers, or even have a choice for a better music player and/or widget. I currently can't do that, because nothing seems to read the internal storage. Do we have any word that this is going to change in the near future. I know that we are all excited about the prospect of FroYo, soon, but what about this existing issue.

HTC Desire :: Internal Storage Space Management

Jul 16, 2010

Until Froyo arrives this is an ongoing issue for those of us who have not rooted. I thought it would be useful to have a thread collating tips for managing the space effectively.The phone has 147mb of space available when new. The cut off point for the low space warning in the notification bar is 14mb.When the low space warning shows then you can't install any new apps or update any existing ones. You also can't send any texts.
Here are some tips I have posted for managing space efficiently:

1. Use Astro file manager to back up apps to sd card. You can then uninstall some of the larger apps such as games which are not played frequently. Then if you want to use that app again you can reinstall direct from the sd card in a matter of seconds (even if you have a low space warning).

2. Regularly clear cache by going into menu / settings / applications / manage applications / menu / sort by size. Click on the largest ones such as maps and internet and see if there is any cache which can be cleared.

3. Check email settings. Email will take up much more space if you have it set to download the last two weeks rather than just the last couple of days. You can also set limits on file sizes and number of emails to download.

4. Check settings for any RSS and news feeds you may have. Try and set them to limit the number of items and to automatically clear themselves after a couple of days.

5. Regularly reboot the phone. Sometimes if you uninstall something or clear cache the free space does not appear straight away and only shows up when you reboot the phone.

6. Mini Info is a good widget for monitoring the free space available

I've noticed quite a few posts saying that Facebook and Contacts are taking up large amounts of space. This is not an issue I've had personally as I don't use Facebook. If anyone has any tips or comments on how to manage this effectively then please add them.

Android :: Internal Memory And External Storage

Aug 18, 2010

I've started seeing some apps that offer to read/write data to the internal phone memory (like Super KO Boxing 2, which offers to save a whopping 52MB to the phone memory). I suppose this is because newer Android devices have a lot of internal storage, as opposed to my devices, which have very little. I would like to support internal storage in my app as well.

But it's a bit difficult to implement a solution to something that I don't really know how it works. For example, do these newer devices allow users to upload files to the internal memory, like it's possible to do with the SD card? Can someone explain internal storage from an user perspective and recommend strategies for supporting read/write operations both for internal and external memory (ie: letting the user choose which memory to use at startup, like the Super KO Boxing 2 app)?

HTC Desire :: Not Able To Download Applications - Low Internal Storage

Sep 27, 2010

About a week ago my phone inexplicably stopped being able to download from the Market. No reason is given, the thing just stalls at the 'starting download' screen. Today, nearly a week later it's finally given me a clue what the problem might be. A notification icon appeared, claiming that I'm low on internal storage. I clicked on the message thinking that it would take me to something useful like a file manager, but no such luck. It took me to the application manager to, I assume, remove some apps. I've got nothing to remove. The only two extra apps I'm running right now are 3G watchdog, Twitter, and Kindle.

As far as I know not much is being stored internally, but is there anyway I can find out what is being stored - I can't find a file manager anywhere. The only thing I can think of is messages might be clogging the thing up (text and mail) I have a mail widget running but it only picks up 1 day's mail at a time - are the messages stored on my phone or are they simply viewed on the server. I also have a few hundred text messages stored, but I can't imagine they would take up that much space?
