I'm writing a program that should display the amount of unread sms, mms, phone calls and emails. It was quite easy to find how to query for sms and phone calls (I used the search on this page) but I have not been able to find out how to query for emails.Is there anyway to find out how many unread emails the user got in their phone?
I was wondering if there was an app that would cause an android phone to vibrate and/or play an audible notification every 2-5 min until all notifications are cleared form the task bar. I have a client who has moved from a Blackberry to a Droid 2 (thank god I hate those damn Blackberry's) and he used to receive these "reminder notifications" when he didn't open his emails or texts right away. I searched the app store up and down from my Incredible but could not find anything.
I just upgraded to 2.1 from 1.5.Before my gmail account would open up to my inbox label, no matter how many unread emails I had. Now it automatically opens an email as soon as I click on the icon.Is there a way to set this back like it was in 1.5 and have gmail go straight to the 'inbox' label?
ever since I switched from Sense to Launcherpro, the main mail icon (not gmail, the one I use for MS exchange) no longer shows me how many unread messages are there. Was that feature something that Sense did that I've lost w/ LP?
I looked pretty thoroughly and could not find anyone who addressed my particular issue so. I cannot get the unread email count to clear from the stock HTC email app. I have two exchange accounts set up and after I read the mail, whatever the unread count was just prior to my reading it sticks. It stays there until the next time I get email and then the new count stays there.
I switched from my Itouch to the Droid X but an having issues with the email icon not displaying the unread email count. I can open Messaging and see the Corp Icon and it shows the number of unread emails. Can I add an Icon for my Corporate Sync account to the desktop so that I know that I have unread emails?
The Original email app on my galaxy s3 one day decided to become stuck on 1 unread email. Whether i have read all emails or 5 unread emails, the app displays 1 unread email.I have tried 'Clearing cache' and 'Clear data' several times on both the email app and gmail(Gmail just for the sake of it even though it is unrelated)also, deleted all my inbox, junk and trash emails online. However, no matter what i do the icon still displays 1 unread email.
My phone is not rooted and has been and still working perfectly fine apart from this issue.I know that the issue isn't that big of a deal since technically email and everything is working, but that 1 on the email icon really annoys me.I have uploaded a screenshot of what i'm talking about just incase i haven't made myself clear.
I have synced my desire with yahoo mail.The phone doesnt duplicate deletions from yahoo to phone or phone to yahoo so have to delete everything twice (Windows mobile does it.)Also when the phone goes and gets the mail from yahoo it marks them as read on the internet and unread on the phone. WM synched the read status - did not mark the yahoo mail as read when downloaded and the read status was synced from the phone to yahoo or yahoo to the phone depending on which was read first.Presume i need to download someone's app.
I have set up the Email app on the phone to connect to my Yahoo! Mail account. However, the Email app always regards incoming messages as unread even if they have already been marked as read on the Yahoo! Mail account itself. This makes the unread messages count in the Email app inaccurate and unhelpful.
The Email app does not appear to possess a facility to mark several messages as read, the only way to bring the unread count down is to open each message in turn. Sometimes a message has to be opened twice in the app before it is regarded as read. I can delete more than one message on the phone, but this also deletes the messages on the Yahoo! Mail account, which is not what I want.
I have tried deleting the email account from the Email app and then reinstating it, but I now have an unread message count of 50 on the phone when all of these messages have, in fact, already been read on the Yahoo! Mail account.
I can also access the Yahoo! Mail account by means of the Yahoo! Mail app on the phone, but one of the disadvantages of this is that the icon for Yahoo! Mail does not possess an unread messages count at all.
I use and prefer the stock email app, but currently have a small issue. When looking at the folders, it says there is one unread email in the trash folder. However, when you open the trash folder, there is nothing there (I regularly delete my emails from it). Why this is happening and how to correct it?
I have a few gmail accounts on my Droid and that work fine, but my msn email that I added has a problem. If I get messages and don't open them, then 15 minutes later I get a notification of new mail, but when I check there's nothing new. So then I tried marking messages read to prevent this but some of the messages revert to unread on their own then renotify me as if I have new messages. So I either have to open them or delete them to stop getting false notifications.
Anyone else have this issue, any settings I can change that will fix this? Nobody has access to this email account except me so I know it's not a matter of someone marking unread from the desktop.
I just switched from the HTC eris to the Droid and had no issues with IMAP on the eris which is running 1.5 OS. What's happening is I setup my personal domain email as imap and all works. I mark all messages in the inbox as read. When new email comes in it marks the entire inbox as new. I've deleted the account multiple times and done a hard reset. I even tested this in the store on 2 phones.
Moto doesn't have an answer and I found this thread on the VZ forums Droid IMAP emails always Unread - Verizon | Forums and Blogs - Verizon Community which the OP is using the same hosting company as I am. I've never had a problem on a WinMo, BB or iPhone setting it up the same way. Something seems off but not sure what it is. I've setup GMail via the same mail app and that's working.
I am a newbie HTC Desire owner and decided to use it to send an email (which took me ages to write) and now I can't find it! I clicked on a contact link in my hotmail folder and an email editor popped up and i happily banged away until my finger mistakenly hit the home screen button and it disappeared.
I am almost sure there was a note that it had been saved somewhere but I can't find it anywhere! Any suggestions as to it's location would save me loads of time.
I received a Text message sent from an E-Mail and I was wondering if it was possible to find the individual file on the filesystem holding the metadata for the E-Mail.
If so, would I have to root the phone? And where would that file be located?
I'm a techie, so no need to warn me that I could hurt my phone or files - I'm only looking to READ, not WRITE, and I'd be making a copy of that file beforehand anyways and porting it to a PC in order to check it with whatever program is necessary to decrypt (Probably only need a hex editor.)
I've set up an email account on my mini pro (NOT gmail or exchange) and it all works fine updating my inbox manually , however, I cant find any settings to automatically retrieve my emails periodically ( as far I can see auto sync refers to gmail or sony sync or road sync for exchange). Is there any way to auto sync an individual email account ?
So i have this app on my home screen and the envelope is red.I have seen some screen shots where the envelope is blue.Was that an option when I first put it on my screen or does it mean something else?
This would happen from time to time on my Blackberry and the easy fix was to search only unread messages and it would return some random message that was marked as read in the inbox. Since there's no way to search unread messages how can I find the email that the phone thinks is unread since all the emails in my inbox are read?
I am working on an application that needs to find GPS location of the user. While testing my code on Droid i am unable to find the GPS location. While googling i found this link to an issue raised with Google.
But apps like Yelp can find the GPS location on droid. Is there a workaround to find the user location on a device? Here's the code I am using code....
I'm new to development for Android and I am curious if it is even possible to request and accurate location of another android device? For example, If I wanted to find where a friend is located and show it on my device in google maps.
Is there a reason why I do not find my own app on Android Market with my G1? The G1 is registered to my Google account, that I used to submit the APP. I too have a Samsung Galaxy, which is registered to another Google account, and with that I found my app! Does anyone know why this is?
I downloaded the Gmail Unread Count application and I am a little confused. If I go into the "all programs" folder it is not listed. But, when on the home screen, if i click the "+" sign and "add widget" it's listed there.Is there a reason I can't see it unless I want to add it to my home page or is this a problem with my phone? Also, is there a place to see a complete list of my WIDGETS being that they're not listed in the "all programs" list?Lastly, I see alot of people post a white box picture with black stuff in it, as if to scan it somehow. What is this and why and how would I scan it?
most other smart phones display the unread email count as a small number in the lower right hand corner of the email application icon. I like that. After realizing that this is not supported by the GMail app, I started looking around the market for a widget that achieves this. All I found was a commercial widget, which did not satisfy me (the count did not get instantly updated when the unread mail count changed). Therefore I want to develop a widget, which accomplishes exactly that.Many of you probably have more experience in android development than I do, so I would be happy to hear your opinions. I see two ways to realize this:
1) Somehow hook into a content provider of the GMail app and extract the unread mail count directly from there. Unfortunately the GMail app is not part of the SDK and closed source. Therefore I have no idea how to find out about the internal workings of the app and how to extract the unread mail count directly from there.
2) The second approach is much more indirect and has more overhead, but it will work nevertheless. I will let the user provide google username and password and log into the google imap server directly and find out how many unread mail there are. A port of the JavaMail library for the android OS should make this quite simple. The question remains when to update the mail count. What should trigger the update? A periodic time-out? Well, my first idea would be to update it when the widget is first started and then every time a new mail notification comes in. However I don't know whether this is possible. Can I tell my application to react to notifications, which where produced by another application (GMail app in our case) ?
I really think there should be a free unread gmail widget, which accomplishes this! I would be happy to receive feedback.
So I'm using my Samsung Vibrant and I downloaded Handcent and every time I get an SMS and check it, I noticed that I still have a notification saying i have an unread text, even though i have clearly read the text. Is anyone else getting the same problem as well? I tested it on another Vibrant and same problem.
I've added my hotmail account to my mail app but every time I load it up all the emails it has pulled down are unread (read on the server), any way to mark them as whatever they're marked as on the server?
I've been trying to get the number of unread gmail mails with no luck.I've read Gmail.java and gmail4j both links taken out of this site from this question: Android - How can I find out how many unread email the user has?But still after having read all of that and a couple of other sites that talked about this particular subject my question remains:How can I get the Gmail Unread Count?Sorry if it seams a bit insistent but I clearly lack the knowledge to find this out on my own from the source.I would like to clarify that I want to do it without having to ask the user for credentials.Just 2 add some colors to the question let me show you the looks of my app.
both get mail all day long and generally its very good about it. here lately it has sucked, hard. Looking at the accounts will show unread messages, the inbox itself will show unread messages via the counter but there are no messages to click on. Log into google on the web and there they are, as I delete them the message counter counts down but still never shows the emails on the phone. This seems to happen in the mornings. Restarting the phone does nothing. Running BB V1 No aftermarket email apps installed.
So I got a replacement for my Milestone yesterday, I logged to my google account, went to the Market->Downloads, and I only found my purchased apps nothing of my free apps.I did a backup applications with astro on my old phone, then restore apps on the new one, but that doesn't give access to the updates. Is there a way to find my free apps list, or I have to search for them one by one in the market?
All the apps I have found, to make your phone ring to help you find it, require sending an SMS from another phone. Doesn't help much when I am at home and can't find my phone. Is there an app to find my phone using my PC? Like, send an email? Or maybe there is an app for my PC that sends an SMS? I can't find that either.
