i want to know how to save user Data in android so i can retrieve it when staring and during the run of the application
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.View 1 Replies View Related

I have a EditText in android in which i want the user to enter the text and checks for the condition "BYE"

I have had this same problem happen twice to me on 2 different phones on 2 different Verizon accounts!
The password screen locks and when it asks for the user name and password it states invalid user name / password!
Is this a known problem since when I called and talked to both Verizon and HTC the only thing they could tell me was to do a hard reset and they weren't aware of this problem?

I've decided to purchase my first non nokia phone, which will also be my first smart phone in the next couple of weeks! I just want to know, where do you get applications from? How easy is this phone to do things with? I've seen the thread "show us your homepages" and I haven't got a clue how any of this works. If there are any manuals I could read, please point me in the right direction.View 5 Replies View Related
I'm trying to develop an application that should not be visible to the user. I mean an app that can't be visible at the Manage Apps screen (Settings - Applications - Manage applications) and also whose services couldn't either be visible at the Running Services screen (Settings - Applications - Running services)I know I'm trying to fight against Android's nature of being open and give control to the user. But I want, somehow, to cheat the system and pretend the app does not run and even does not exist. Is that possible?View 3 Replies View Related

Kindly provide me the Android code to get the User-Agent from the Android mobile device like in J2me where we can get System information about the mobile device using the J2me API.
Also , is there any list of Rdf or useragent string/ xml for the different Android devices available in the market.
I did a video comparison between my Evo and my first gen iPhone. These are my impressions from being a former iPhone user. Enjoy, and please leave comments as you see necessary.g (My SD card filled up while recording this so it's in two videos)
Let me clarify. This is not meant to be a definitive review or comparison. I am not a professional product reviewer. I'm just a tech enthusiast give you guys my impressions of my Evo versus my iPhone. I'm sure people will notice things that I let out of this, and I've already noticed quite a few things I meant to say but forgot. Please take my videos for what they are, first impressions.
Here's a link to photos I took: Dropbox - Photos - Online backup, file sync and sharing made easy.

Few questions about the EVO: If I pre-order at BB, can they hold the phone for a week or so? I'm going to be out-of-town for about a week after the launch. I don't want to wait until I get back, since they will likely be sold out.
1 Year contract possible for a higher up-front charge? I was looking at the HTC Incredible, and I like that I can pay $70 more for a 1 yr contract. If Sprint's network leaves something to be desired, I'm concerned about a 2 yr contract. I'd also like to get device upgrades each year...a 2 yr old smartphone these days is not fun to have.
I have an EditText that shows time. After user clicks the EditText I want to show a TimePickerDialog, so I set a View.OnClickListener to my EditText. But the OnClickListener is behaving wierdly - I touch the EditText and then software keyboard appears (which I don't want). When I touch again, OnClickListener.onClick() is finally called and the dialog appears.What should I do if I want the dialog to appear immediately?View 4 Replies View Related

I recently purchased the new Evo. This is my first smart phone, Droid, etc. Pretty much I am going from the basic to the top. I have read through the forums and I have done all of the tips & tricks for saving your battery. At this time I am basically just using my phone to check email, facebook, twitter, browse the Internet, and as a camera, all of which I could do on my last phone, the Sanyo spc-2700. After all of the rant & rave about this phone I went for it. Can anyone give me tips and tricks that are out there and would make me feel like I got my moneys worth out of the phone? I mean I really love the phone, size, clarity, etc, it's worth it but I feel as though I am really missing the big picture here.
My questions are:
What is the coolest thing about the phone?
What applications should I download and use?
What is the difference between an application & a widget?
I am new to The incredible but not to android. I previously had the Eris. And no I did not just abandon ship and get the incredible it was given to me as a gift and I decided not to open it until today because someone stole my eris with the leaked 2.1 v1 and a passcode on it and im pretty sure I will get it back on Monday but I just have to say: This Phone is Awesome.View 2 Replies View Related

I have installed ultimatejuice, and i am slowly getting the hang of it. however, its not exactly self explanitery in use at times.I am sure i read somewhere (no idea where though, i just remember seeing it and deciding i wanted that app!), that someone had set it up so that when the phone was plugged into the usb charger (i.e. computer or car charger), then bluetooth would be turned on. but when it was unplugged or plugged into the wall, bluetooth was turned off.i am 99% sure that juicedefender was the app he used for it, but i cant work out how to do it.so, im wondering if its because i cant work out how to use the app, or if i have the wrong app?and even if i do have the wrong app, has someone come up with some sort of simplified user guide for it?View 7 Replies View Related

I want to create an application for Android that enables me to get the geolocation of a user. This has to be made as a client-server app and for the server side I'm using OpenFire. For getting the user's location I would have to use XEP-0080, right? And SmackAPI also? I'm completely new to XMPP and Smack, so if anyone could get me a few pointers or maybe examples or any kind of documentation about this I'd be very grateful.View 1 Replies View Related
I'm looking for a way to determine user identity so I can globally track game scores off phone.IMEI provides identity of the phone - not effective if phone is on- traded or upgraded by individual. USIM provides identity of phone carrier subscriber - assumes device is phone, and currently has a SIM card.I'd like to be able to provide continuity as a user upgrades to a new device. And I dislike being forced to create an account on each global scoring system, so I don't want to force that on my users. And my end user experience with OpenFeint leaves me disinclined to use it.It doesn't need to be bullet proof. But it does need to be hassle free for my users.Is there any other identifier on an Android device that I can use to link data more cleanly with the current owner? And how would I get hold of that identifier? I'm thinking something like the user's Google account .. or similarView 12 Replies View Related
I'm starting to dip my toes into LocationManager. I've created a service which tracks GPS location (interval is more than 60000ms) and updates my application with user location so they can find stuff nearby. As I understand it, users can go into their preferences and disable GPS for a particular application. I would essentially like to offer my users two modes.
1) GPS. 2) If GPS can not pull, device does not have a GPS chip, or GPS is turned off for my app, I would like to allow them to type in their zip code (or maybe switch to cell tower lookup).
The bold text is what I'm interested in. How can I tell if the device does not have GPS? How can I tell if the user has disabled GPS for my application?
Side question: My service gets launched from my 2nd Activity. I call stopService in the onDestroy method of this Activity. If I back up to my 1st Activity and the 2nd Activity is destroyed, I still notice the GPS icon on my phone running. Is stopping the service sufficient? Or do I need to stop the LocationManager in the onDestroy of the service?
I want a countdowntimer to halt on a menu and also when the user goes from that menu to another activity. When the user comes back from that activity or when the menu is closed, the timer should still halt. However when the user went to the home screen and clicks on the icon again, I want the timer to restart. So my question is, is there a way to detect if the user has just opened your application, or if the user comes back from another activity or menu?View 4 Replies View Related
I am trying to have 2 applications which can access each other's data.I have a two test applications which I am experimenting with.I set the 'Shared user id' for each to 'com.gabysoft.sharedfiles'.However, when I sign the first app and try and install it, I get the error:
11-05 16:50:33.422: ERROR/PackageManager(61): Package com.gabysoft.sharedfiles1 has no signatures that match those in shared user com.gabysoft.sharedfiles; ignoring!
Clearly, I am not signing it correctly (I am using Eclipse's "Export signed application package" function).How do I properly sign the .apk file so that I don't have this problem?
I am looking for some answers from some of the experts here. I have a project in mind that I want to start. It is about using HTC's Touch HD phone as a device in a museum with rich media/video about the art and the artists on it. Besides the videos and animation, I also want to show some content from a web browser. Now my biggestest issue. I do not want that the museum guest who pick up the phone for the tour get to see the standard Android user interface. Is there a way to develop a new user interface that would start up directly once the phone is turned on? It should then automatically start the app with the museum infos. Later I may want to add some GPS functions and even sms and photo taking, etc....
What do you think, how flexible is Android to allow that?
