I am creating an application that checks the installation of a package and then launches the market-place with its id.
When I try to launch market place with id of an application say com.mybrowser.android by throwing an intent android.intent.action.VIEW with url: market://details?id=com.mybrowser.android, the market place application does launches but crashes after launch.
Note: the application com.mybrowser.android doesn't exists in the market-place.
MyApplication is my application.
However, when I try to launch the market place for a package that exists in the market place say com.opera.mini.android, everything works. Log for this case:
Massive problems with the market im experiencing, iv had my desire for 3 weeks, and no problems at all, UNTILL NOW, whats going on?
I go to search in the market, and type in dialer, it brings up all the customisable dialer choices, if i choose ANY of them, i go to pay, and everytime i get the error message "A server error has occurred,retry, or cancel and return to the previous screen" but it is only on the dialer packages.i can buy and download anything else fine,
Can someone test this out for me?
Iv reset my phone 3 times, and its the same thing evertime, WHATS GOING ON?
Our customers are seeing these errors a lot when purchasing our apps, and other than suggesting a few workarounds(unmount sd card etc), I'm not sure theres anything i can do to fix the issue. Is anyone aware of anything that might be causing it from the app developer side? Obviously our app uploaded fine, and the majority of users can download and install it just fine, but we're seeing this problem a lot and losing a lot of sales because of it. If theres something that we're somehow getting wrong in our app, i'd love to be able to fix it! It seems to be related to Android 2.2 and installing to the sd card Any ideas?
in the developer console, I have a couple of errors, which although fixed in the code and marked old in the console, still show up on the front page. And I highly suspect that this is affecting the rank of my apps. This is obviously a bug in the developer console:
1. at the developer console homepage it says (in bold face): Errors (2)
2. when I click on "Errors", it shows: Freezes Crashes 1 new 1 new 0 reports 0 reports 1 old 3 old 2 reports 7 reports
3. When I click on "1 New" in the "Freezes" column, it displays: Old ANR keyDispatchingTimedOut 2 reports 0 reports/week
Also, one of my apps, TapeMachine, has 4.5 stars, 973 downloads, and 83% active installs. For certain keyword searches in the market it has been the first result for many weeks. And since these (bogus) errors are here, it has lost its rank falling under many applications with lower ratings. A similar issue happened with the free version, which has 4 stars and about 20k downloads.Is there a workaround or a fix for this situation?
I have uploaded my paid app "Legion" and I can see that I am making sales but why is this app not visible on my phone? I can see other paid and free apps. The android platform of my Samsung Galaxy phone is 1.5 and here is part of my manifest.
I live in Singapore which does not have any paid applications yet.I see a lot of good applications that I want but cannot get because they do not have a free version (for example RemoteVNC Remote)Is there any way to get paid apps in a country which does not support the paid marketplace?I do not want to use pirated software, however if this is the only method I would not mind donating the money to the dev and then downloading a cracked file.
I know that the Android Market detects and supports in-place upgrades of apps. I know that using developer tools, you can do in-place upgrades of apps. Suppose, though, that you are distributing your APK through other means, whether it be a third-party market (e.g., AndAppStore, SlideME), or just via your own Web site. How do you do in-place upgrades? Is it just a matter of downloading the new APK and telling Android to install it, or is there some other magic that is needed?
I'm UK based and I'm wondering how much of the world can see and download my apps from the market? For example, the Chinese market, which I believe is quite large, can they see UK or US based apps? Or does some kind of specific translation need to be done for this to happen? Or is it a separate market place?
I have a motorola devour and according to all the reviews it can run goggles and according to google it can as well but i cannot find it on the marketplace!! my friend runs a search on her g1 and it comes up no problem! whats wrong with the devour!~
Just got the Droid Incredible and was wondering if there was anything like Photo Hunt on the market place? It's the game where you are shown 2 similar pictures and you have to find 5 differences before time is up.
I have a rooted moto droid running kangerade 5.9 and for some reason I can not access the market place. not sure it just hangs at the loading screen and when I do a search i get no results found. im hoping I dont have to but it seems like a new rom may be the best fix
I've been having problems downloading apps, and updating apps this past week. Uk T-mobile branded handset, updated to 2.2 a few weeks ago via T-mobile ota update. Also followed the noobs guide to force apps to AD, freeing up some extra ram. Just having issues updating programmes like
I've been using a nice widget called "Timeriffic". You can set up different notification profiles. 6:30 - 10:30pm I get all notifications. After 10:30pm I only get phone calls. Are you aware of a application that does this for email, wireless and other services as well? Was thinking it would be nice to set up a profile that stopped email polling at specific times to save battery life. I usually put the phone into airplane mode...but would like something automatic.
there is an option in the settings for "unknown sources" it says "allow install of non-market applications" so where do i find these and do you recomend it? i want to find the good ol' boob jiggle app i lost back in the day with my ipod.
Have a work-issued HTC Magic here and have installed all sorts of free stuff. Just wondered what happens when I get my own Hero early next year? Can I "move" my applications over? Do I need to pay for them again? I've not created a Market Place account yet - is it tied to a handset?
My family has got three android phones, an HTC Hero, a Samsung Galaxy, and a T-Mobile Pulse, all are running android 1.5 with the latest manufacturer firmware. On the T-Mobile Pulse, when searching for a couple of apps (ones that I have installed on the other two devices), I get returned 'no matches'. For example, if I search for 'BrightAI', which is a developer who has around 8 apps on the market, I get no matches. If I search for individual apps, I get 'no matches'. Searching for the same on either the Hero or Galaxy returns the expected results. Does anyone have any ideas why certain apps are accessible on one device, but not the other?
I know that google market blocks protected apps from non-authorized devices like the legend and I've done lots of searching in this forum and other sites but could someone please reiterate: any timeframe for this to be sorted? Or what's the best workaround? Is there a site we can download apks for (example) layer and install that way? Or is it easier/quicker to mod the phone so it works in marketplace?
i was wondering if there is a way to automatically update a comment in the android marketplace. I'm not a spammer, but I have an issue for the dev and I want it up top so he see's it, and it's been an issue since day 1. Won't go into much more detail other than that, but if anyone knows how to do this please help me out.
