Android :: What Logic Does Contacts Api Use To Aggregate - Overlapping Fields From Multiple Raw Contacts

Nov 2, 2010

when a "contact detail" screen is presented in the contacts application, how is each field aggregated from its underlying raw contacts

case 1: Overlapping fields

when the same field exists in two or more contacts. Say they have two different last names or emails in different accounts. Does the contacts app show both fields with an account indicator?

case 2: Non overlapping fileds

one rawcontact has email while the other one has phone number

Short of scouring the source code, I have exhausted searching everywhere else.

General :: Where Are User Defined Fields In Android Contacts

Apr 29, 2012

Have been a long time user of Outlook and Blackberry and store a lot of information in the User Defined Fields. Those fields seem to have been eliminated from all of the Android Contact Apps. I don't see them in Motorola Corporate Sync, Touch Down or Moxier Mail. Am I missing something, can't believe the developers of Android apps would just skip those fields. Any App that I can store and sync those fields. Google Contacts has the fields. I have just upgraded from a Blackberry Bold to a Verizon Droid Maxx. Love the big screen on the phone, struggling with the touch keyboard and really struggling with losing half of my contact information.

Android :: Add Custom Data And Fields To Contacts Screen In Droid?

Oct 10, 2010

I'm trying to add a custom data field and MIME type to the Contacts screen. Is there a way to do this such that when a user views a contact with my data saved on it, my field appears there? This is something I've seen other apps do--how do the Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, etc. apps add their status information to contacts, for example? I can't seem to figure it out from the Contacts API documentation.

HTC Desire :: Unable To Add Custom Fields To Even My Google Contacts

Jul 21, 2010

Whew... I just rooted and installed the "Official Froyo HTC Sense ROM" from AdamG.

It seems to look and feel exactly like 2.1, which wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting the lockscreen to be different (the horizontal one). Is that a feature of Sense? Do I HAVE to get rid of Sense to install that?

Also: Now I am unable to add custom fields to even my Google contacts (earlier I couldn't do it for phone contacts, but it was possible for Google contacts). Is that a problem with this ROM? What ROM should I install to have this feature?

Android :: Making Game's Logic Supporting Multiple Screens

Jul 25, 2010

I've read the article "Supporting Multiple Screen" on Android developers site. But that doesn't apply to game logic.Let me get straight to the point. My situation is as follows:

- I'm creating a game using LunarLander code as a base.

- In my game, there'll be an object flying up from the bottom of the screen. The object will fly in projectile motion.

- I set the starting velocity, gravity and angle so that the highest point(of projectile motion) is almost at the top of the screen.

- The screen tested is Motorola Milestone. (480x854 resolution) Meaning the object travels around 854 pixels vertically.

I'm thinking of adjusting starting velocity based on screensizes. But that sounds unreliable when we've so many devices/resolutions out there. How do you combat these kind of problem when making games?

Android :: Anyway To Delete Multiple Contacts?

Just got the incredible and I LOVE it.However after importing contacts from gmail, there's a lot of junk emails that I'd like to delete, but there's so many that going through one by one and deleting is pretty tedious. Is there a way to delete multiple ones at the same time? Also, when you make a new folder, is there a way to rename that folder?? I can't seen to figure out how to do it.

Motorola Droid :: Contacts Only Syncing To Google All Contacts Not My Contacts

Jan 16, 2010

I seem to be having a sync issue with my Droid.When I add a contact to my phone, it doesn't sync into "My contacts" in Gmail; it'll sync into "All contacts". So, a couple of questions:

1) How can I get the phone to add new contacts created on my Droid into "My contacts" in Gmail?

2) I'm trying to understand the point of "All contacts". Why does Gmail want to keep a list of anyone that I've ever sent an email to? Otherwise, it'll be simple enough to just merge the two groups and call it a day.(Note: When I bought my Droid I did NOT have the VZW sales person transfer my contacts or any data from my old Blackberry to my Droid. I used Google Sync on my BB and synced my contacts from my BB to Gmail, then when I got the Droid, it automatically pulled my contacts from Gmail.)(FWIW, yes, I did a search and found two great threads: http://androidforums.com/support-troubleshooting/15042-how-do-i-push-droid-contacts-back-gmails-my-contacts.html and http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid/15069-contacts-dont-really-synchronize.html but I have a different situation than most of those guys and I'd actually prefer to sift through and merge a couple of contacts from "All contacts" to "My contacts" every once in a while than deal with a backup and factory reset.)

Android :: Tool To Unlink Multiple Contacts

Sep 18, 2010

Is there a tool or a way within Android to select and unlink multiple contacts? I've been syncing my Captivate using Kies for while, but after a Kies software upgrade I had to reload the drivers (using Kies) as the Captivate was not connecting. After the driver reload I was able to sync my contacts, but I ended up with duplicates of all my contacts under the "Unassigned" group. I can not delete these duplicates under this group because they're linked to the duplicate contacts that I had already assigned to specific groups. If I delete any contact in the "Unassigned" group it also deletes the contact I want to keep under its respective group. I have over 1,500 contacts so unlinking one by one is very time consuming and not practical.

Android :: Contacts Contract / Building Across Multiple SDK Versions

Jan 11, 2010

I need my app to run on all Android versions, but the Contacts API changed in 2.0. In SDK 1.6 and earlier I use android.provider.Contacts to query the contacts DB, but this does not work in 2.0 Instead, for 2.0 I use android.provider.ContactsContract. This presents a problem: when I have code for ContactsContract, my app will not build for 1.6 and earlier. Do I need to have two separate versions of my app (one for <= 1.6 and one for 2.0 and later) or is there a way to avoid doing this?

Android :: Cannot Select Multiple Contacts To Text With Stock Messenger?

Aug 1, 2010

Now before I get flood of 'get handcent' and ' get chompsms' responses, I'm letting you all know that I have used both, and I have found both either don't show or don't save pic messages. I'm a promoter so I need to use pic messages, so don't mind the stock messenger since its the only one that works right with pic messaging. The only problem I have with it is that I can't select multiple contact from my list to text at the same time. How is this not a stock feature? If it did that, I would delete the other messenger apps and save very valuable space on my phone.

Jul 3, 2009

KitKat 4.4 :: Contacts With Multiple Numbers

Apr 12, 2014

Many of my contacts have multiple phone numbers. When I receive a text from someone is there any way to differentiate which one they are texting from? For example, I usually send texts to my wife from my mobile, but sometimes I will send them from my tablet through google voice, which has a different phone number. She added my Google Voice number to my contact so she will recognize it. Both numbers show up as a different thread and if she responds it will go to the correct device. The problem is that she will open up her text app and pick my thread out of the list, but there's no way to tell which device she is selecting, so she will send texts to my tablet instead of my phone and I won't get it. I told her to create a completely different contact for the Google Voice number so she will know the difference. This works, but she doesn't want two separate contacts for me. It is kind of annoying that the contacts allows you to enter multiple numbers for the same person but doesn't differentiate which one is being used. Is there any way to get the text app to show which number the text is coming from on contacts with multiple numbers?

HTC Droid Eris :: Android 2.1 / Syncing Contacts From Multiple Gmail Accounts?

May 21, 2010

On my Droid Eris (just updated to Android 2.1), I have taken advantage of 2.1 offering support for multiple Gmail accounts. So I have 3 Gmail Accounts in the Gmail app. My question pertains to how Android syncs the contact lists (which include many of the same contacts) from these 3 separate accounts. Will I end up with dozens of duplicate contacts? If so, is there a workaround? Also, is there an easier way to switch between different Gmail accounts? E.g., in the Gmail app, you have to go to Menu then Accounts, which is inefficient. The built-in mail app displays a list of accounts when you open it (an ideal approach), but I would prefer to not open my Gmail accounts in the default mail app.

HTC Desire :: Contacts Multiple Mobile Numbers

May 28, 2010

I don't understand. In symbian it was possible to add more than one "mobile" number, and even with a custom label. In android i can't do that. I have friends that use 2 or 3 mobiles, for work, personal use etc, that besides the work number from the location.

Is there a workaround or a program i can use? I don't want my contacts staying on the gmail servers.
I guess the question is, how can i modify the labels? there's got to be a way...

If i use the "linked" option, when i view the contact details it just shows me 3 different numbers, it doesn't show me the linked contact's name so i can't now wich number i want to call: work, personal etc.

Custom labels would have been genius. I could add to Andy for example:
1. mobile xxx
2. mobile work xxx
3. boss xxx

And when he would call me from one of this numbers, it would have been nice to look like this:
Andy mobile xxx or Andy mobile work xxx.
