Android :: Prompt User To Save Changes When Back Button Is Pressed

Mar 17, 2010

I have an activity that contains several user editable items (an EditText field, RatingBar, etc). I'd like to prompt the user if the back/home button is pressed and changes have been made that have not yet been saved. After reading through the android documentation, it seems like this piece of code should go in the onPause method. I've tried putting an AlertDialog in the onPause however the dialog gets shown and then immediately tears down because nothing is there to block the pause from completing.

Android :: Can An End User Disable 2G Data / Or GSM Function?

Aug 9, 2009

Is there a way for end users to disable 2G data services (e.g. make the phone just a phone)?Or disable the GSM function as well (say, for a device used on a hiking trip as a GPS tracker, where there is no coverage)?
Is there enough control in the SDK to pursue writing an app with a control screen like: [x] Enable Voice (GSM) Enable 2G Data / Enable 3G Data (uses more battery than 2G) [ ] Enable Data When Roaming (may result in extra charges) [x] Enable WiFi [x] Enable WiFi even if device is sleeping [x] Enable Bluetooth [x] Enable GPS [ ] Airplane mode (disable all radios)

Android :: Application That Allows The User To Drill-down Into Data

Apr 22, 2010

I have an application that allows the user to "drill-down" into data. At each level of data the user can choose a Tableview item or a Listview item. This will result in a startActivity() call for display of new data.

I can get back to the top (Parent activity) by using the Back button, which can take a while. Is there a way to "POP" back to the Parent activity and dismiss all previously allocated activities, and not have to go back through all the activities previously created?

Android : Regarding Storing Of Data From User In Database

Aug 19, 2010

I am working on some sample programs, where i have to take the value from the user and store it in the database. I have used DroidDraw to create the XML code for UI.For now, I have just started with a textbox. So, I have to take the value from this textbox and store it in a database. I am using SQlite browser to create tables. I read in some forums, that one way of doing this.

1. Copy the db file in the asset folder of the android project and use the AssetManager class. But i am not able to figure out how to use the asset manager class here. Or if I could get some simpler suggestions on how to store the value from user into the database, it would be great.

Android : How To Add User Customized Data To Database?

May 9, 2010

I am trying to design a sqlite database that will store notes. Each of these notes will have common fields like title, due date, details, priority, and completed.

In addition though, I would like to add data for more specialized notes like price for shopping list items and author/publisher data for books.

I also want to have a few general purpose fields that users can fill with whatever text data they want. How can I design my database table in this case?

I could just have a field for each piece of data for every note, but that would waste a lot of fields and I'd like to have other options and suggestions.

Android :: Securely Store User Data On Device?

Apr 9, 2010

I'm writing an application wherein users will sometimes make orders through it. I want to give users the option to save their billing info (name, address, etc.) so that it can be quickly restored later if they want to make another order. The user will enter a password to secure the data. Obviously I can't just put this as a file on the device, as anyone can root/find the data. Is there a built-in Android method for storing secure data that is locked with a password? If not, what is a good place to start for storing this data securely using Java?

Android :: Which Data Will Be Deleted If User Uninstalls Application

Mar 18, 2010

If a user uninstalls an app from his phone, which data is explicitly deleted? I know that preferences are deleted. What about files on the sd card and about databases created by this app? If the data on the sd card is not deleted how can I avoid cluttering the users phone if I write larger amounts of data, like images on the sd card?

Android :: Get Rid Of All User Data Of Application After Bigger Update

Apr 16, 2010

I completely revamped an app. Tested it for a while on my device and emulator. The app worked fine. However when I updated the app through the Android market, my users experienced crashes.Since there is no way to properly debug this procedure I asume the crash is caused by old data which is not being removed from the device (probably from the onsavedstate bundle?!).Is there a way to do a "clean/total" reinstall without having the user to do it manually?

Android : Way To Save Data On SD Card Always Deletes On Re-install?

Jul 30, 2010

I am using the getExternalFilesDir(null) method to save to the SD card. Saving and reading from the SD card is fine. The problem I am having is that every time I edit anything in Eclipse and rerun the app the data on the SD card is deleted. I know that saving to the directory returned by getExternalFilesDir(null) will allow the files there to be deleted when my app is uninstalled but is there a way to turn it off for just app updating? Is this only cause I am doing it from Eclipse and it won't delete the data when the app is updated from the market?

Android :: Select Android Applications Sharing Data Without User Notification

Sep 30, 2010

Come one, come all -- let's gather and act shocked, shall we? It's no secret that Google's Android Market is far easier to penetrate than Apple's App Store, which is most definitely a double-edged sword. On one hand, you aren't stuck waiting a lifetime for Apple to approve a perfectly sound app; on the other, you may end up accidentally downloading some Nazi themes that scar you for life. A curious team of scientists from Intel Labs, Penn State and Duke University recently utilized a so-called TaintDroid extension in order to log and monitor the actions of 30 Android apps -- 30 that were picked from the 358 most popular. Their findings? That half of their sample (15, if you're rusty in the math department) shared location information and / or other unique identifiers (IMEI numbers, phone numbers, SIM numbers, etc.) with advertisers. Making matters worse, those 15 didn't actually inform end-users that data was being shared, and some of 'em beamed out information while applications were dormant. Unfortunately for us all, the researchers didn't bother to rat out the 15 evil apps mentioned here, so good luck resting easy knowing that your library of popular apps could be spying on you right now.

Update: A Google spokesperson pinged up with an official response to the study, and you can peek it after the break.Update 2: Looks as if the full study (PDF) has been outed, with the 30 total apps named. Here they are: The Weather Channel, Cestos, Solitaire, Movies, Babble, Manga Browser, Bump, Wertago, Antivirus, ABC - Animals, Traffic Jam, Hearts, Blackjack, Horoscope, 3001 Wisdom Quotes Lite, Yellow Pages, Dastelefonbuch, Astrid, BBC News Live Stream, Ringtones, Layer, Knocking, Barcode Scanner, Coupons, Trapster, Spongebob Slide, ProBasketBall, MySpace, ixMAT, and Evernote.

Android :: Attempts To Save Data In Database Aren't Working

Nov 5, 2010

We've been developing an Android app at work for a few months now and recently acquired Droid Incredibles (API ver. 8) to replace our HTC Dev Phones (API ver. 4).

DANG are these some sweet new toys, but unsurprisingly, they've got a few quirks...

1) It's normal for my user to let the program run for long periods without any input, but he'd still need the display to work the entire time. Can anybody suggest a function call or setting or something that will prevent the Incredible's screen from dimming while my application is running??

2) On the Dev phone, I was able to copy my application's database file (thousands of uses, that) onto the SD card's root directory and fly. I could view the directory on my PC via USB; when I released the SD card from the PC, my application was perfectly happy with it and obediently read from and wrote to the database; and I didn't have to remove the SD card, ever. That doesn't seem to be the case with the newer, better phone, though. My application seems to be reading my start up parameters properly, but all attempts to save data in my database aren't working so well unless I'm just doing something wrong. Can anybody point me to documentation specifically geared toward the Incredible?

General :: Can Android Store Save Games / Data On Cloud?

Oct 30, 2011

Not possible with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. The only way is to use Titanium Backup, and better than that, Nandroid Backup. You can as well extract data from a Nandroid backup with Titanium Backup.

I have a Nexus S and I wonder if, with the option Settings -> Accounts and sync -> Background data & Auto-sync & Manage accounts (sync is on) the settings and savegames are automatically stored "on the cloud", let it be my Google account or similar, because I don't have a rooted phone and don't want to do that to preserve warranty.

So, the apps for wich I want to save data are:
Air Penguin
Angry Birds
Angry Birds Rio
Angry Birds Seasons
ArmySniper
Clouds & Sheep
Dolphin Browser HD
eBay
EGGGZ
Flight Director
Jewellust
Jewellust Xmas
Labyrinth
MultiGrain
X Construct

Android :: Activity / Process Lifecycle - Save / Load Data To / From Disk

Nov 26, 2009

My app is made of two activities, A and B. I'm considering this sequence of steps: Activity A is started. A launches B [A is paused, B is running]. B launches a map intent [A and B are both paused now]. Now the user is using the maps application and the system decides it needs more memory. Can the system kill only one of my activities for memory, or will it always kill all activities in a "process" in this situation?

Both activities share some static data like:

class Data {
public static String mName;
public void save() {
// write to file: mName;...................

Android :: Singleton Objects To Save State Or Share Data Between Activities?

Nov 23, 2010

It would be nice if StackOverflow had a section where we could post tutorials like mine so that I can answer literally hundreds of questions that have been asked here with a single blow. See... every day I read questions about how to pass complex objects between activities, how to save state so that your app can resume after orientation change, how to update listviews when the data changes, etc, etc. Here is the second part of a tutorial series I posted on my blog... I hope that you actually read it... because I haven't seen any examples like it anywhere... and it has changed how I think about developing for Android across the board. The question is... is there a downside or negative affect of developing like this?

Beyond Smart Lists - How Observable Singletons change the game. Please read through both of these tutorials carefully... I will answer any questions about it here that I can... I really want to know what you think about this and if it might solve issues for you. NOTE TO MODERATORS: there are no advertisements of any kind on my blog.. so don't just close this because you think I am spamming somehow... I am not going to duplicate my post here.

Android :: Save Data From Camera To Disk Using MediaStore On Android?

Mar 16, 2009

I'd been using my own Camera class for taking images and my own database but soon enough I couldn't really keep up with changes and I decided to use the built in camera application in Android to do the job, but I can't seem to get it to save file. What am I missing here? The application seems to save the file but it's just 0 bytes. I looked up the source code of the Camera application and it's looking for the "output" in Extras to save the file.

Public class CameraTest extends Activity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.main);...............

HTC EVO 4G :: Flashing To Old ROM - Option To Wipe All User Data

KitKat 4.4 :: Backup And Restore User App Data

Nov 6, 2013

I've heard from numerous sources that 4.4 has a way to backup and restore user app data similarly to how the Google account syncs contacts, calendar events, etc.

Is this true? How to verify? This does seems unlikely, though, as app data is a dynamic thing, and can take quite a lot of space on the device.

If this is indeed true, ROM hopping just got 5000% a whole lot easier.

HTC Magic :: New User / Log Lists And Controlling Data Usage

Jan 9, 2010

I used to use Nokia phone but just changed to HTC Magic.

1) I can't seem to find any settings that allow me to check talk time, number of SMS sent, amount of data used, etc.? I need to keep track as my plan is not unlimited.

2) Is there any way I can stop the phone from accessing GPRS/HSPA from my provider? Once again, it is cos of my very limited data plan (only 20mb per month), so I would want to control the usage. I notice that when the phone is not on WiFi it will automatically connects to GPRS/HSPA and there is still data transfer even when the phone is on standby mode!

General :: WiFi Tethering App With User Data Monitor

Jan 10, 2012

I have been looking for an application which is a more powerful version of the WiFi Tethering already included in a phone.

I have been looking for an application on Xda, Google, and the Marketplace but none I have found provides me with the ability to see individual users (or Mac addresses) data usage.

First a little background on what I am trying to achieve.I regularly provide a WiFi router for people with IPods and devices with wireless but no internet connection who need internet access to update games / browse the internet, and whilst my FUP at 500mb is quite low, I rarely use more than 20mb in a month so it doesn't bother me as beyond 500mb the connection is just limited to text and images (downloads and internet streaming are disabled after 500mb) which is all that I need.

However when my FUP has been exceeded alot of devices cant do the small updates this is no good when games or apps require it (as I have seen a couple even stop working till updates are completed) due to the connection being restricted. I have usually tracked it down to an over enthusiastic user who is watching videos on youtube, which has wiped out 100mb of my usage within 2 minutes on one occasion.

I am running both Android and Windows Mobile on my HD2, Whilst the built in "Portable Hotspot" of Android is good as it lets me restrict the number of users and see the Mac address of connected clients, it doesnt let me monitor their usage and then let me disconnect individual users them from the connection.Whilst im sure there is apps for overall phone usage I am looking to monitor the individual devices usage as with 3-5 devices it is hard to distinct between legitimate usage and constant heavy usage.

Is there any Wifi Tethering app to let me do this?

To summarize:

Wifi Tethering App
Android / Windows Mobile
Shows Client Usage
MAC filtering (or alternatives which allow individual devices to be disconnected)
