General :: Direct Access To Time Zone Function?

Oct 16, 2013

I've used XDA many times before, normally for specific questions on ARHD ROMs.

I work on a cruise ship and we're continually crossing time zones. Currently, to alter the time zone on my (rooted) HTC OneX, I need to pull down the notifications tray, select settings, scroll down and select date and time, then select time zone. I can't use the Auto function, as the network time on the ship (satellite) is only available over Wi-Fi, for which I have to pay an exorbitant rate.

I'm looking for an app that will allow me one-tap access to changing the time zone. 'Time Zone Widget Light' almost does the job, as a tap on the widget scrolls through pre-set time zones, but this only allows me to step forward, and sometimes I need to go backwards as well (sadly our ship itineraries refuse to follow pre-set time zones, although I'm working on it!)

Any app, or perhaps a toolkit that lets me drill down to sub-layers of the android settings menu and create a short-cut?

Android :: Want To Auto Change Time Zone - Any App?

Apr 14, 2010

I travel each week to Brussels from the UK and don't want to keep switching my current time zone.I have tried setting 'Automatic' in the Time & Date settings but it does not seem to do anything, but maybe this is because I have data disabled (cos I don't have a data pack).Is there an App that will use GPS to automatically alter the time zone setting?

HTC Desire :: Have To Confirm Time Zone Every Morning

Sep 20, 2010

Android: 2.2
Network: 3UK
Task killer: None
Issue:

For some reason on most mornings since I got my Desire some 12 days ago I get a notification stating that the phone has been unable to confirm my time zone. I get an option to confirm my time zone as BST (GMT +1) and the phone is happy again...until the next morning.

My settings have the phone automatically checking the date and time. The greyed-out "choose time zone" option correctly shows GMT +1 / BST. I switch my phone to airplane mode overnight, so that I don't download updates unnecessarily...and don't get my sleep disturbed. Could this be the problem?

The strange thing is that this has not happened every morning, although most mornings it has. But my brother who lives in the same house also has a Desire and he has rarely had this problem. Any ideas?

HTC Incredible :: Time Zone Changes And Outlook Calendar Events

May 6, 2010

I have multiple events (ie birthdays) as all day events. That means that these are set up in Outlook 2007 from 12am to 12pm on selected day. Recently, I went from Central to Eastern time zone. While there, I synced my phone with outlook using HTC Sync and now I have an additional occurrence of the event that goes from 11am to 11pm and spans into the previous day. I thought this would fix itself once the phone was back in the right time zone and was resynced, but it doesn't.

My Google Calendar on my Android phone is off by one hour. Although it displays correctly on the website, on my Android phone some of the times are off by 1 hour. When I click into the event, it says (America/Cancun) which I assume means for some reason its displaying Cancun time zone.

Does anyone know of a direct api that allows access to CPU usage statistics for different applications/tasks running inside android? All I can find is data available by accessing a file "/proc/stat" but this seems a little cumbersome. ActivityManager holds data about processes/tasks etc but no CPU usage stats.

Android :: Direct Database Access Instead Of Content Providers

Sep 2, 2010

Just found out that I don't need content providers if I don't need to share data with other applications. But since the examples I've seen all use content providers, I'm not sure how to proceed without them and populate activities with data derived from accessing my application's database directly.

App Requires Direct Phone Access And Can Make Calls Without Asking First

Apr 8, 2013

I've just published an app to Google Play. It is an app that allows people (mostly tourists) in my area to easily find businesses around them. One functionality that my app offers is to make a phone call to these companies by tapping a button in the app, including emergency numbers.

Google Play says that the app requires "direct phone access, it can call phone numbers without your intervention, which can lead to a high phone bill, but not emergency numbers". This doesn't completely fit my intention.

My app would work just fine if it had to ask the user every time it wanted to make a call, and it doesn't call anything when no buttons are tapped, plus I DO want the app to be able to call emergency numbers (with the user's consent off course).

Android : Direct Access To GEARS Geolocation Without Going Through The Browser Interface

Jul 15, 2009

information on direct access to GEARS geolocation functions from an Android application. To date, I have not found any. geolocation includes three Android-specific public Java classes, AndroidGpsLocationProvider, AndroidRadioLocationProvider, and AndroidWifiLocationProvider. The fact that they are Android-specific and that they are public lead me to conclude that I should be able to use these classes in my application. However, not surprisingly, when I try to access these classes, my application fails (see log below) because, among other things, I have no way to correctly identify nativeObject in the java classes. At the very least, I would like to understand the purpose of the three Android-specific public Java classes, and how we should use them.

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

(Native Method)

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

Android : Content Provider Vs Direct Database Access - Transaction Management

Aug 7, 2010

I understand, at least on paper, the basic difference between the Content Provider and just directly accessing the SQLiteDatabase. I have a functioning prototype for my application, and currently it is just directly hitting the database. I don't really have any experience using the Content Provider pattern, but I have found out that I will need to share some data with another application.

I will only be sharing about 2 out of a dozen or so tables, so I was wondering if I should be just completely redoing the data layer to follow the Content Provider pattern, or just expose only those tables via a Content Provider for the sake of the other application and still directly access the database in the primary application.

One of the issues I ran into with my prototype was that I have some fairly complex transactions, and the code I wrote to get that working is not designed particularly well and isn't reusable at all. As I add more functionality to this app, I'm going to need a better designed data access layer, before I set off writing my own, does anyone know of any good resources with design patterns for this type of thing already? Also, if I need to go the Content Provider route, am I going to have solid control over the database transactions?

Android :: Looking For Function Inlining At Compile Time

Oct 7, 2009

I recently wrote a quick test that does this: private static int test_f(int i) { return i * 42; }
int z = 41; for(int i = 0; i < 10000; ++i) { z = z*42; } // this loop runs in X seconds for(int i = 0; i < 10000; ++i) { z = test_f(z); }// this loop runs in 10*X seconds. The results of this tests imples test_f() is not being inlined, even though it really is a prime candidate for it. It should also be possible to do this inlining at compile time.

There seems to be no option to control optimization level of the compiler in Eclipse, perhaps optimizations like these are left to the VM? Does the Dalvik VM do inlining of functions at all, or did it just decide to not inline this specific instance? Curious to hear a response from someone more familiar with the Dalvik VM than me.

HTC Hero :: PAYG Internet Access Without Time Limit

Aug 26, 2009

I'm a very light mobile phone user (100 minutes per month at most, often much less, with a sprinkling of texts) and I expect to need intensive mobile internet access only sporadically. Since much of this will be while travelling abroad I don't want to get locked into a large regular commitment to a UK carrier.

If all I wanted was phone access (calls and texts) the obvious answer would be a standard PAYG deal where the value of each top-up stays on the phone indefinitely until I use it. However, so far as I can see, this kind of deal doesn't seem to be available for internet data access (except at ridiculous prices like ?1 per MB).

At reasonable rates per GB all I can find are "rolling" deals where I pay monthly until I cancel or one-off "add-ons" (for example from Three where I can buy 500MB for use within 7 days or 2GB for use within a month). In either case, any allowance I don't use within the period goes to waste. What's more the one-off add-on carries the risk of forgetting to look out for the end of the 7-day or 30-day period and getting hit by penal charges.

HTC Incredible :: How To Know Which System DINC Using To Access Internet At Any Given Time

May 14, 2010

New to Android, not new to smartphones. My BB Storm didn't have WiFi though which is the root of my question.

How do I know which system DINC is using to access internet at any given time? For example, if I am at home connected via WiFi is my DINC using WiFi or 3G to connect to the internet? Also, when my DINC synchs up my accts (Facebook, Weatherbug, Native Weather App, Gmail and Mail) is it using 3G or WiFI? Can I set a preferred connection somewhere? I've looked, but can't seem to find something like that.

Android : Update UI With Internet Access Every Time Screen Refreshed

Nov 1, 2010

I need to do an internet access to update a field on my UI. I do the internet access in a background thread by extending AsyncTask.

Since I need to update my UI every time the screen is refreshed I am executing the AsyncTask in my onResume method. code...

I dismiss the REFRESH_DIALOG dialog in the onPostExecute() method in the AsyncTask.

For testing I rotate the screen to landscape. Things work well. The problem is when I try to rotate again to portrait. I get 'java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: no dialog with id 1 was ever shown ...'. id 1 is for the REFRESH_DIALOG.

How do I get rid of this error? Is there a better way to do an Internet access to update my UI every time the screen is refreshed?
