I recently bought a HTC Desire.(was a loyal nokia fan till now ) . It was difficult to get used to the android version of the calendar app, which syncs with google calendar etc etc.. But my question is - is it possible to create a calendar event - like in symbian OS , where you can choose - Event , Anniversary , Task (To Do) . Issue is , I have a lot of Bday reminders, and they are not exactly "ALL DAY events" and neither do i need a reminder set for that. I prefer the symbian way where its displayed on ur home screen - on that particular day for the entire day. Is such a setting (may be using another app) possible in Android ?View 10 Replies View Related
Can anyone recommend an app to listen to actual internet radio stations rather than creating your own playlists?
I'm used to using the Nokia Internet Radio app on Symbian S60 which let you save your favourite stations from a choice of hundreds and start playing straight away by clicking on the shortcut. I've looked at Last FM and while it's probably very good, it's not really what I want. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
All SYMBIAN based end devices accept Java language Applications
(i)Does this mean that the applications made for Android would run in S60 ,without any modifications?
(ii)If not then what exactly we mean when we say the above statement? Is there any web link to which I can refer to?
(iii)What are the coding guidelines that we need to follow so that an Android application can be ported on S60 with minimum changes?
I would like to ask all of you if you know any good books, articles etc ... on development for these mobile platforms. I'm looking for learning material where the whole technology, OSes and development is discussed in great detail so i could gain a deeper understanding of the system as a whole.View 3 Replies View Related
Does Android support Widget run enviroment like WRT (WebRunTime)of Symbian?View 3 Replies View Related
Having seen similar threads i know im not the only ex symbian user, not that i didnt enjoy my time with it but its time to move on! ive tried to see if this question has been repeated elsewhere but i couldnt so i do apologise if i missed it!
on my previous symbian devices n95 and 5800 if i used an app that required web access be that wifi or over the network it always asked me if i wanted to allow this, and i thought it was a good feature. now i just got a HTC desire and for financial reasons couldnt get an unlimited data plan from o2 in the uk just yet otherwise id be happy to let it be on all the time.
now it seems that if you want devices to connect you either have the wifi on or off, same for the mobile network. does anyone know if there is a setting or app or anything in the pipeline that might emulate this symbian function? maybe its me just being a bit funny but i found that level of control good and it didnt mean i had to go backwards and forwards turning stuff on and off. if its not possible im sure ill get used to it but it would be a good feature!
secondly i have a Ford Focus euro model with a built in bluetooth hands free to the stereo, a factory fitted option which i believe uses a nokia Bluetooth module (stereo is sony) now this really is a minor quibble but on the old phones when the bluetooth was on any incoming calls would push the ringtone through the speakers untiill i answered it
using the desire the phone still rings normally with whatever ringtone i have but it pushes a plain ring ring through the speakers, anyone know a way to change that? or mute the phone when it rings and just push the ring through the stereo?
I have a Nokia E71 (Symbian S60 v3) and am considering moving to either a Nokia N97 mini (Symbian S60 v5) or to Android, probably a Motorola Milestone/Droid.
What are the main differences between the two systems?
My priorities are a good battery life, a good push email system via imap idle, good PIM and sync to google calendar and maybe RememberTheMilk for tasks. I don't care about facebook, myspace, etc
I also like to organize my contacts into groups and I understand Android is better for this.
I know these discussions can degenerate into flames or some sort of "religion wars" (e.g. Windows vs Linux) but I'm only really interested in an honest comparison between the two systems. Much to my surprise, I could find very little on the web.
I have very little idea about mobile platform, though I am interested to program for mobile platform. Would you please compare between J2ME VS Android VS iPhone VS Symbian VS Windows CE. I would like to know which one is better, and if there is any VM technology to test the programs. Which one should I choose and why? Is there any IDE, debugging facilities?View 11 Replies View Related
I have a Symbian based phone with a ARM Cortex-A8 processor (SonyEricsson Vivaz) and was thinking on how hard would it be to try and port the Android OS for it. Obviously Android runs on a myriad of devices with different hardware so I imagine it shouldn't be too hard to adapt it to SE hardware. Could some one give me a clue where to start or if this is even undertakable...View 1 Replies View Related

I find it a interesting proposition to port applications from Android to Symbian and improve a mobile app's popularity and usage. I am sure that I will find multiple results using a google search on this topic. But any recommendations from where I should start ?View 3 Replies View Related
I've been given some Symbian C++ code to port over for use with the Android NDK.
The code has lots of Symbian specific code in it and I have very little experience of C++ so its not going very well.
The main thing that is slowing me down is trying to figure out the alternatives to use in normal C++ for the Symbian specific code.
At the minute the compiler is throwing out all sorts of errors for unrecognised types.
From my recent research these are the types that I believe are Symbian specific:
TInt, TBool, TDesc8, RSocket, TInetAddress, TBuf, HBufc, RPointerArray
Changing TInt and TBool to int and bool respectively works in the compiler but I am unsure what to use for the other types?
Especially TDesc, TBuf, HBuf and RPointerArray.
Also Symbian has a two phase contructor using NewL and NewLc
But would changing this to a normal C++ constructor be ok?
Finally Symbian uses the clean up stack to help eliminate memory leaks I believe, would removing the clean up stack code be acceptable, I presume it should be replaced with try/catch statements?

How can I make my simple site, on which the user can choose to play a number of music clips by clicking on little "play" buttons on the page (think of Amazon's "preview" on their product pages for CDs), work on mobile devices?
[I originally created the page thinking only of desktop browsers, so currently it works by using Flash. I know that won't work at least on the iphone.]
Will I have to build a platform-specific app for all major mobile platforms to provide this kind of simple interface? If so, can you recommend a framework that will let me do this in "write once, run everywhere" fashion?
Followed the instructions in http://developer.android.com/sdk/adding-components.html for adding 2.0 as components to an existing 1.6 SDK, from within Eclipse.
It didn't work. Not by a long shot. Instead, it got partway through and then said that C:android-sdk-windows-1.6_r1 tempDocPackage.new01 couldn't be copied because of a lock, and similarly for PlatformPackage.new01.
It said to shut down running programs, but the only program running was Eclipse, which was needed to do the upgrade.
The cancel button was disabled, and the close box didn't work. Shutting down Eclipse killed it, but left C:android-sdk-windows-1.6_r1 in a corrupted state. Restarting Eclipse showed the Android projects with errors, no SDK, and a disabled Android SDK and AVD Manager (which means no ability to rerun the install).
Shutting down Eclipse, renaming the corrupted SDK directory, unzipping 1.6 again into C:, and restarting Eclipse made it as if nothing had ever happened, which is good. But it is not possible to complete the install from Eclipse, which is bad.
The dialog says:
So the other day I went to download an app out of the market. The download finished, but it seems my phone decided to auto-reboot itself in the midst of the installation. After the reboot completes, I go back to the market, reselect the app, and it's hung at "Installing..." (And when I say "hung," the market is still fully functional except that one app). I'm given no option to cancel the installation. Killing the market app then trying to go back in has no effect - same deal. Hung on install. Another reboot didn't help.
Is there any way to delete the install package and make the market forget I even tried in the first place?
It's Angry Birds (wanted to see what all the fuss was about), but the install seems to have failed in a way that any app install could have failed.
When I run my application on a physical phone from within Eclipse, my Google MapView works perfectly. If export the app to an apk file and install it to the same phone from the command line with adb then the MapView comes up but shows only the Google logo and grid - no map tiles appear. I'm using a debug application key and a GMaps API key generated with that debug key. I've verified that this happens on both the Droid and N1 phones. The logcat looks identical in both the working and non-working cases - no obvious error messages.View 2 Replies View Related
Yes we have threads about this already but we still have not gotten an answer AND I think it's about time somebody at least explain what does this number actually MEAN. I'm getting frustrated with the lack of transparency on this.
My apps used to be around 56% active installs
VERY soon after I updated the apps to allow install to SDCARD (preferExternal), then the active install count started dropping like a rock. Now it's around 39% today for my main app.
My opinion is there is a bug in the SDCARD install feature somewhere that is not counting those installs. We know there already is a bug with home screen icons if you install to sdcard you will get a blank icon until the Home app restarts.
Anybody knows the install command to install an apk in system/app directory .View 2 Replies View Related
What i like about nokia is the pc suite(the older version) it syncs automatically with bluetooth. (files, pictures etc) and can read sms messages.
What ive read so far, theres no alternative on android?
Bluetooth handsfree- The current n82 connects fine to the car stereo,- and can accpets calls etc.
This seems to be a problem on android,-dependent on phone and android version. Is this correct?
Regarding programs, i have a call manager with whitelack lists, answering machine and scheduler. And a program that can record conersations.
Are there any android programs that can do the same thing?

So with difficulty I eventually managed to root my HTC Desire on 02 (Ireland) - it runs 2.1 but I want to try a new rom, specifically Froyo Sense from LeeDr0id: [FroYo Sense] LeeDrOiD V2.0 (30/08 l Official 2.2 l FAST l STABLE l OPTIONAL A2SD+) - xda-developers
I downloaded ROM Manager and bought the premium version. I backed up my contacts with HTC Sync, and I have made a backup of my current setup to the SD Card. I then tried installing a new ROM with ROM manager, but it just does not work. It just restarts the phone. Sometimes it would go into a boot loop. I tried two differnt ROM's (Mocado and Pays rom) and I would get the customised ROM welcome screen but it would just loop at that screen. I would have to pull the battery and wipe, then restore to my primary backup.
I did manage to get one rom installed, and that was when I downloaded Pinky from within ROM Manger and it installed. But I did not like Pinky - none of the others within the downloader look any good really.
I even tried booting into recovery mode, restoring to factory settings, then boot to recovery, install from SD and try install the rom there. It seems to take about 10 seconds to install/extract, tells me to restart, looks like its extracting, but then I just get my normal 2.1

Okay so my phone will not intall or update certain apps, mostly games. The phone will download them but not be able to install, my brother has an Evo with the same hardware and the the same software and his installs the apps. Is anyone else having this problem. I am thinking about restoring phone to default setting to see if that would fix it but I don't want to have to go and reinstall all my apps that are working.Any suggestions on what to do?View 5 Replies View Related
Just did one click root and im now fully rooted on stock 2.1 ota. I downloaded 2.2 rooted + the radio and wifi. How do I go about installing it? Should I do it through Rom manager? or do it under clockwork recovery? And which do I do first? The rom or the radio/wimax? Do I need to rename any of the Zips?View 19 Replies View Related
Just rooted my EVO with the toast root. Seems to have worked fine, was able to make a backup, etc. Now I want to install the Fresh 0.2 ROM but Im stuck. I have downloaded the .zip file to my PC, but now what? How do I actually run the install of the zip file? All the instructions say are to "Download" the ROM zip file...but what do you do after that? Extract or copy it to the SDCard? Through cmd prompt? Need SDK/Java/Eclipse etc in order to install it?View 3 Replies View Related
I searched and couldn't find an answer. I'm trying to install a different version of genie.apk than the one that came from the OTA 2.2. I uninstalled the stock version, and now when I try to install the new one through root manager, or astro, it says that application wasn't installed.View 7 Replies View Related

I tried updating both Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds on Friday. I had all kinds of trouble getting them installed, still haven't been able to get them installed. I had both installed prior to Friday. So in trying to troubleshoot things on friday one of the things I did was uninstall the app to try to reinstall. It did not work. Fast forward to Saturday when the Dolphin browser app update was released. I updated and had the same problem as FN and AB. Trying to think about possible causes, I wondered if using SDMOVE to move the app to the SD card was causing problems. So, I moved Dolphin browser back to my phone and retried the update. What do you know, it worked successfully. Now, I am stuck and don't know what to do with FN and AB though, becasue since I uninstalled them I don't have anythign to move back to the phone and I still can't get them installed. I tried looking at my SD card for any left over files from either game and couldn't find anything.View 4 Replies View Related
I have an evo 4G and I did step 1 of the android rooting instructions. I want to install Fresh 0.2 but I am not sure how to do that. all the instructions I can find say "download and install" I tried downloading Rom Manager from the marketplace, after installing that I installed Flash ClockworkMod recovery inside of Rom manager. freom there I tried both installing the Rom from the SD card option and downloading the Rom inside the program. a window opens a windo giving me an option to backup my current rom and wipe data and cache and then tell me to press ok to reboot into clockmod recovery and continue installation. that is as far as I get. after I press ok absolutely nothing happens, no reboot, no progress bar telling me its going to reboot, absolutely nothing. what am I doing wrong?View 2 Replies View Related
