Android :: App Copy Protection And Data Files

Feb 20, 2010

In my app, I access my sqlite database at the following hard-coded location in my code: /data/data/ com.mydomain.appname/databases/database.db

If I turn ON copy protection in the Market Place, will my app still have access to this location?

Or will I have to change it to something like: /data-private/data/ com.mydomain.appname/databases/database.db

(or something like this)

Since I have a Dev phone only, I have no way of testing to see if my app still functions normally after turning on copy protection.

Android :: Copy Protection Data Lost?

Mar 20, 2010

Has anyone turned off copy protection on their app recently? We're finding that Motorola Backflip users can't see our paid apps, so we'd like to turn off copy protection as it doesn't seem to prevent pirating. But, we're worried that existing users will lose their saved preferences. According to bug 2047, the issue was fixed in November 2009, but according to some discussions, it actually still exists. It'd be great to hear positive or negative examples from anyone who's tried this recently. We're also thinking of putting out a dummy app to test things out and will report back if we do.

Android :: Turn Off Copy Protection?

Aug 31, 2010

I'm having a lot of issues where people can't even find my app in the Android Market. It appears that it's all because of copy protection, which I WISH I had never even seen, much less activated in my app. So, can Google PLEASE, response and let me know what will happen if I disable it now? What will happen to my existing customers? I've not seen a single definitive answer on this topic.

Android :: Copy Protection Invisible App

Jul 5, 2010

I have an app with Copy Protection on. Since a number of users have reported being unable to find the app on Market since upgrading to 2.1, I have researched the issue and copy protection seems to be the culprit. Turning off copy protection is the answer, but it seems that it leads to file access problems and can require a reinstall, which is not a very good user experience.

However, this ought to have been fixed in 1.6 which means I should be able to turn off copy protection and everything is ok. But some people have still encountered this issue and their users had to reinstall. So, my question is this, if I turn off copy protection, will all users have to reinstall the app? Will only 1.5 users have to reinstall (30%)?

Android :: Copy Protection & License Key Management

Apr 26, 2009

1. When the "copy protection" checkbox was first introduced on Android Market, I heard about a lot of issues with people not being able to download etc. Have those issues been resolved now? If I turn on copy- protection on an app with over 10K active users, do I risk a major rebellion?

2. I'd like to sell my app on other stores like slideme, andappstore and handango. Since some of these just redirect the user to your own site to download the app, there needs to be a license key that authenticates the user and unlocks his app. I saw that andappstore has a framework for that (not sure if that will only work with them or is a generic solution). I'm looking for a free, generic licensing solution. Is there one that you know of or use? My concern is to not throw in a wrench in the process of user download and use of the app, where I start getting a ton of emails from people whose keys arent working or asking for new keys etc, where license support turns into a full-time activity.

Android :: Market Copy Protection Options

Feb 19, 2009

Off (Application can be copied from the device) On (Helps prevent copying of this application from the device. Increases the amount of memory required by users to install the application) AFAIK apps are *always* installed in device's internal memory. Right? Hence, apps can't be copied (with stock G1 w/o any mods).

Android :: Removing Copy Protection From Market App?

Jul 21, 2010

If I publish a new version of my application and remove copy protection will any of my users be impacted? For example if users using 1.6 and greater will not be impacted but users still running 1.5 would have to reinstall and resetup the application I could live with that.

Android :: Turn Off Copy Protection - App Move To Sd Card

Jul 13, 2010

I have an paid app currently selling in the market with its copy protection turned on. I'm thinking about turning this off in order to reduce the size of my app and allow the "move to sd card" function to work. I've read that, in the past, people were having issues when the dev switched the copy protection setting from off to on. Is this still an issue? If users are still having problems then I'll leave things as they are. I understand that copy protection isn't really helping and I should just leave it off, but since I've had it on through several updates now, I'd hate to cause my users grief by changing now.

Android :: Updating App On Market And Switching To Copy Protection

Nov 8, 2009

I have uploaded an update for my app on Android Market. And at the same time I have enabled the copy protection of the app. When I downloaded my the update, there was an exception and the app crashed. I had to reinstall it. After reinstall it worked fine...

Exception was: W/zipro ( 1103): Unable to open zip '/data/app-private/...': Permission denied D/asset ( 1103): failed to open Zip archive '/data/app-private/...' W/ResourceType( 1103): No package identifier when getting value for resource number 0x7f090000

Is this a know bug when switching to copy protection? Or is there another reason this error occured?

Android :: Process Of App's Activation - Copy Protection Of Market?

May 25, 2010

For example, firstly download the app "ABC", "Open" button and "Uninstall" button will be displayed at the bottom of the screen when the installing is completed. Secondly, activate "ABC" by tapping this "Open", and tap HOME key when the app is running. After that, restart the same app from the Launcher on the Home screen, and finish the restarted one from BACK key. Then, despite having closed the restarted one, the same app is displayed. (I forecast the cause, it is maybe the multiple activation of the app.)

Q1. Is it the problem as the specific of Android Market that multiple activation occurs when the app is activated with above process? If it's no problem, is the cause the app "ABC" which I downloaded? Q2. Is there any way to avoid the multiple activation in designing of apps?

General :: Samsung Galaxy S4 - Copy Files From Hidden Data Folder

Apr 12, 2014

There is an app called PPDigital, it stores DRM free PDF files in a folder
Android/data/com.lht.privateerpress/files/

On my Asus Transformer TF101
I don't see that folder using "ES File Explorer" or "file manager" or when plugging into my PC via USB. I tried rooting my tablet and still haven't had any luck.

On my Samsung Galaxy S4
I see the folder but only 2 of the dozen PDFs that are in it, sadly they are the 2 I care the least about, both via "my files" and a USB connection to my PC.

HTC Desire :: 3rd Party Batteries - Copy Protection And OS X Syncing

Apr 19, 2010

I emailed HTC last week with these questions, thought I would post up the replies if anyone else wants to know...

1) Is this safe to use 3rd party extended batteries and will it make a difference to the capacity (it's 1600mAh)? Also, are HTC going to release an official extended battery in the near future?

2) When will the copy protection issue with Google get sorted out?

3) Are you going to release a version of HTC Sync for the Mac operating system?

Android :: Create Files Hierarchy '/data/data/pkg/files' Directory

Dec 11, 2009

I try to create 'foo/bar.txt' in Android's /data/data/pkg/files directory.

It seems to be a contradiction in docs:

To write to a file, call Context.openFileOutput() with the name and path.

http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html#files

The name of the file to open; can not contain path separators.

[url]

And when I call

this.openFileOutput("foo/bar.txt", Context.MODE_PRIVATE);

exception is thrown:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: File foo/bar.txt contains a path separator

So how do I create file in subfolder?

Android :: Using Local Files - Overlay Route Data In KML Files On MapView?

Jun 11, 2010

I am trying to overlay route data in KML files on a MapView.

The following code works great:

CODE:................

The only problem I have with this is that I don't need to re download these KML files every time. I have about 10-15 KML files that will rarely change. Also since it has to connect, download, and parse these each time there is a delay in opening the maps.

It would make a lot more since for me to save these as a local resource and have the URI reference it there. Is there a way to construct a URI using the geo: scheme and have it point towards a local resource?

It looks like file:///sdcard support was included in 2.1. The only reference I could find to it was at the end of this bug report thread. I am currently at work and don't have time to play with this yet but I would like to figure it out later. I feel like there are a lot of people on stackoverflow and elsewhere who would really appreciate a reasonable way to do this.
