Android : Setup Parental Restrictions On Phone?

Jul 2, 2010

I just got an Android phone for my son. Is there any way to set up parental restrictions on the phone so he doesn't have full access to everything on the browser? I have hidden the browser icon, but that's not going to work very long. He's not very computer/tech savvy, but his friends will show him. His iPod Touch has restriction settings, so wondering if Android has anything like it. I've searched this forum and the net and haven't found anything.

Android : Restrictions In Resource Name / How To Do Generic Internationalisation?

Oct 5, 2010

Currently porting an iPhone application to Android. I've encountered an issue that I haven't been able to overcome. On the iPhone, translating your text is trivial. Put all your strings/text in Localizable.strings in the format: "sentence to translate" = "sentence translated" The original string can contain any characters of any type. So, what are the restrictions in the name of a resource on Android. Or is there a way to circumvent it and easily replace one string with another. I'd like to keep the original dictionary of text I was using on the iPhone to keep things simple and not introduce any unnecessary errors.

Apr 29, 2012

I have tried numerous launchers and have found it difficult to find any launchers that allow you to go above 72x72 resolution for icons. The only one that would was Go Launcher EX and that simply scaled them up to a barely noticeable 82x82.

Is there a launcher which allows you to load icons that are say 100x100 and that does not scale them?

HTC Incredible :: Can't Setup POP Account Through Setup Screen

Nov 8, 2010

I was able to successfully setup a POP account through the Setup fact when I go back through Setup, I still see the account. The problem is I can't DO anything with it in setup (including deleting it to start over) and it doesn't show up in my Apps window with an icon! I see it on the setup screen labeled "Setup Accounts" but no matter if I tap it or hold it or swipe it or try to hit the menu key, it just sits there. There is a green button with the checkmark in it. I guess what I would think i ought to be able to do is to assign it an icon (or even get a generic one) and find the account listed on my app screen...I'm willing to reset it, but I can't even delete it to start!

HTC EVO 4G :: Visual Voicemail Setup?

Jun 11, 2010

So I didn't set up my voicemail yet, but the phone has been doing it for me, I guess. My previous voice mails and my 9 year old OGA have all been deleted. When I use the "Visual" voice mail, which btw, is hardly visual, it's more like photo voice mail. No visual text to read. The only two options I have are speaker or earpiece. Bluetooth does not work! When holding it to my ear to listen in private, the phones sensors never pick up the fact that the phone is near my face, and the screen stays active. Touch your face with it, and who knows what function you activate. And the audio quality is bad. You know who it is, but the sampling rate, or codec they use is low quality and you get a tinny buzzing sound constantly while the vm is being played back. Am I using this wrong, or is this just an Epic Fail on the part of the software?

Android :: Way To Setup AlarmManager?

Jul 20, 2010

I am currently setting an alarm to fire off a background service every 2 minutes in order to check my server for certain updates. Now if I start the app and my screen is on and not locked the phone plays the sound I need it to play and opens the activity. Thats great. But the way I need it to happen is if the screen is off and the phone locked I still need it to check every two minutes and I need it to play that sound and open the activity that is needed. This does not happen for some reason. Could someone explain to me why the alarm doesn't function when my app is not "running" (by this i mean the app is marked as a running process but not actually visible to the user) and the screen is off? The code for the timer is below: CODE:.............

It syncs, mail, contacts, calendar no problem. I walk through the K-9 Setup (i have tried the Market version as well as several BETA versions, doesn't seem to be a difference) and continually get Errors in the errors folder and nothing in the Inbox. I have tried several different options on the incoming mail setup information for the exhcange server info but nothing seems to work. I am wondering if there is a sample guide for setting up K-9 with Exchange?

Android :: Setup Account As Always Available

Jul 19, 2010

When I set up my Droid X, it used my default gmail address for Gtalk. As far as I can tell, there is absolutely no way to change your gtalk account to another account. My problem is, I want my girlfriend to be able to send me chat messages at any time of day through gtalk (she has a blackberry), but I don't want to have to set up my account as "always available," because I don't want people on gmail to send me chat messages and then think I'm at my computer and ignoring them when I don't respond. Before I got my Android phone, I was invisible 100% of the time. I can't set my account to invisible on my phone though because gtalk thinks I'm offline and forwards it to my email. I saw that there is some kind of mobile indicator that I turned on in options, but I have never seen it actually work. When I view my gtalk account from another account it just shows me as a available and doesn't indicate I'm on mobile. I thought I could get around this by setting up a separate gmail account ONLY to use for gtalk with my girlfriend. That way I could set it to Always On however gtalk will not let me add it. So how can I possibly set up gtalk so my girlfriend can chat with me at any time of day, yet I can keep my status as invisible so none of my gmail friends can?

Android :: SDK Setup Under Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit

Dec 17, 2009

The short version of my issue at hand.

Windows 7 Professional x64
Java JDK 1.6.0_17 x64
Eclipse Galileo wADT Plugin installed
Android SDKtools r04

Since the Android SDK download now only includes the tools, you have to run the included SDK Manager application (SDK Setup) through which you can download the platforms, additional tools, docs,etc.

Under my current configuration SDK Setup bombs on launch, so, I can't do anything since I do not have a single platform to start writing against...I've read a few places that the fix is "just install the 32 bit JDK and all will be well" that seems surprising and disappointing option for a work around(downloading it now to try).

My question is this, anyone else run into this same issue and how did you get past it? Is there a place I can "download by hand" the components I need that I missed on the Android SDK site?

Odds are pretty good that the 32 bit "fix" will work, but that seems wrong that I'll have to install a secondary version of the same SDK/JRE just to run this tool and to download the actual Android SDK components

UPDATE: Well, the work around that requires you to also install 32 bit java and referencing that as your JAVA_HOME worked, either by calling the SDK setup manually or through eclipse. I'm not particularly happy with that, so I'll leave this one open for the time being in case there are other ways to get this done that people may know about.

UPDATE 2: Not directly related since it is Linux centric, but there are troubleshooting steps if trying to run the SDK/Eclipse under Linux 64bit where they reference the need to be able to run 32 bit, but nothing similar under windows x64

FINAL UPDATE (?) Taking the info Seth's answer gave me, and running the bat manually(once I knew what file SDK Setup was running) the answer for me was simply adding ANDROID_SWT path variable that pointed to a valid location with the x86_64 swt.jar....the android sdk directory had one, seemingly in the right place, but it couldn't find it until I added that to my path.
