Is there an app that show battery life in terms of how many hours or mins left looking for something accurate and free of problems there is one i found called battery time but its got so so reviews If not what in your opinion is the best battery percentage app out there for features and accuracy
This is weird and hopefully only a Moto Droid or local tower problem.
There is a difference of 15 seconds between my Droid's idea of time and UTC/GMT. This supposedly can't happen as cellular communications rely on 10ms accuracy and the Droid internal clock is set by cell towers.
I'm looking for some other Moto Droid developers to take a look and report if there is any time offset in their area. I've written a test app and posted source and apk at http://a9k.net/#droid . There is a screen shot there. It's very basic - show internal time (both System.currentTimeMillis() and Calendar.getInstance()) and show web page at www.time.gov.
Another simple test is to compare the phone's time to a computer that is synchronized to a net time server. You'll need to check seconds or watch for a whole minute. The minutes will not be equal from 45-59 seconds UTC.
The repercussions of an error in setting the internal clock could be extensive. Then again maybe Verizon towers here are whacko in MT?
When I installed DamageControl v2.08.1 on my cdma Hero the calendar and date are 24 hours off! Time is correct but it's the next day. When I did a back up of this install it even used the wrong date on the backup. I have a bunch of small issues that I think with patience I may be able to work around but this clock/date thing has me puzzled. Also has anyone figured out how to put a custom city in for the weather widget and not one of the ones listed but for example a small town (any town) some where in the USA? I could do this on my 1.5 but this weather widget acts like the clock and you can only use their listed cities.
I'm looking for an alarm clock app with one very specific feature - allow me to set the alarm tone to automatically stop after X seconds, then start again at the next snooze interval, and play for another X seconds.
Sure it seems every alarm app out there allows me to set Snooze intervals and stuff, but with my waking up habit, I don't like to physically have to touch the phone to get it to shut up until the next snooze interval. I like to lay in bed and let the alarm go for like 3-4 snooze intervals before I finally wake up.
I've tried Alarm Clock PlusV2, Alarm Clock Xtreme, Quick Alarm. None of them seem to have this.
I had deleted the flip clock b/c the weather refused to update. I went back and put it back on and the weather does not show up on the widget now. I have to open up a seperate weather widget on the screen. I've played around with the settings and haven't found a way to remerge the two. I called HTC directly and the rep I spoke with was dumbfounded. Had no idea what was wrong and told me that the only way I could fix this is to do a full system restore. I would prefer not to do that so if anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appriciate it. so it seems that the problem lies when I select "use current city" for the city I want. I choose one of the many cities listed that I don't live in, it works fine. How do I get it to recognize the city I live in?
Do those numbers seem normal to the rest of you? Right now if I am using my phone for browsing, video, etc. it will run the battery from full charge to dead in just under 4 hours. If I just leave the phone turned on but with no apps running (standby) it runs out of power in roughly 48 hours. Is this the battery life I should expect from this phone?
i read that quite a few people were having trouble with the preloaded clock and weather app.. on my htc wildfire it worked ok for the first couple of days then all ofa sudden it wouldnt show my localitys weather and all i get is some place called Bradston or something like that in america? only thing is im in australia anyone know whats going on?
im running fabs latest rom and on the phone i have both clock and alarm clock the old app and i think there conflicting cause i have my alarms set in clock but no alarm clock displayed near the time or in the lock screen like it should
The closest example of what i want to accomplish is the "Engadget" widget. It updates it's data from the internet every 5-10 minutes and "scrolls" to the stories every 5-7 seconds. I imagine it sets the 5 -10 minutes interval to the widget's provider to call the onUpdate without the inbuild limitations , something like that. AlarmManager alarms = (AlarmManager) getApplicationContext().getSystemService(Context.ALARM_SERVICE); alarms.setRepeating(AlarmManager.ELAPSED_REALTIME, SystemClock.elapsedRealtime(), updateRateSeconds * 1000, newPending);
Then the real issue.. to update the widgets content without calling onUpdate....................
I'm using traceview to identify bottlenecks in my app. If I use the emulator, everything works fine. But when the device is used, no matter how long I run the app, traceview only gets the initial 5 seconds of my session and nothing more. I also noticed an error message in the console: Traceview: (<unknown>:10301): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times. Have you ever experienced this problem?
To be able to do some accurate calculations that I want for my app, I need to be able to get an accelerometer reading every 100ms. I haven't found a way to do this on android, it seems like the only way to get accelerometer readings is to put a listener that can listen at different intervals. Basically, is there a way to get a reading at exact intervals?
