I am looking for an app to do the following things. Change ringer setting when getting a call from a certain number. i.e. Turn the ringer on when I call it from my google voice number in case I loose it.Also, to run a script when connecting to a specific wifi network.I believe Locale can do at least the first one, but I was wondering if there were any cheaper apps to do this as I have no interest in the gps features of locale.
When my phone does not have a connection, it defaults to an address that I had prior to getting the Desire. When GPS is on I get my correct location. Where is it finding my old address and how do I change it?
I'd like to know if it is possible to get an app or change the settings so that message contents won't be shown on the top of the screen?I've managed to get Handcent which allows me to stop the contents to be shown at the bottom of the screen
so from what I've read in this forum (yes, I've tried), I need to do something to my APN settings to get my MMS to work. My questions are:
1) How do I change the settings? I only have one (Telus SP) and it's locked. I can't change anything whatsoever 2) What are the right settings supposed to be? 3) Does the phone need to be "rooted"? I don't even really know what that entails, I just know you need to root a phone before you can do some things.
Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, I did a search but found nothing relevant. How do I change a primary contact detail? For instance, my friend has just left his job and his old work email is set at the primary email on my contacts, so I want to change that to his hotmail email yet when I go to edit, there's no way of removing the old email and setting the hotmail as primary.
I know there are many posts about location based widgets not working correctly (and I have read lots of them). Some people say they do and others say they don't work right. on my DI I can not get the Sense Weather/Clock to follow where I am currently (GPS on or off). Is it supposed to?? It would seem to me that it should be able to get a rough area based on what cell towers I'm hitting, but that doesn't work for anything. Every weather based widget I've tried works solely off GPS and when I am in my building at work there is no connecting to the GPS Sats. So before I go off on a tangent I'll ask my question(s). Should non-GPS location services work? Or does everything need GPS on and connected? I only have about a week left and I want to make sure that my phone is working correctly before my 30 days are up. This is the only frustrating thing I have found with the phone so far.
Is there a location based reminder app? For example, let's say I need something from the store. I would like an app that would remind you to go to the store when you are near one. It would be cool if you could select specific locations or use generic locations (based on what is in Google Maps maybe). Hopefully it uses the location service without using satellite GPS.
How to take screenshots of your Android based phone from Windows - Simple Help..To get the Android drivers, i had to install the HTC Sync program that comes on the disc with your phone, or you can download the drivers from the HTC Site: HTC Desire - Software Download.To enable USB Debugging: Settings->Applications->Development->USB Debugging.Once you have everything installed and run the DDBMS.bat, which starts the Davlik Debugger.Single left click on the device (your phone listed). Loadsa info will scroll up in the bottom pane.Then just go Device (menu) and screen capture. The rest is simple.I then created an account on Photobucket.com to host the images that i took.
Location based rules dont work. I have GPS checked, and starred but it wont find me. I open up google maps and cell tower triangulation completely sucks. 10 miles off. Now the real question is; Is the dev working on this problem? Should I buy it and hope it gets fixed? The app has alot of potential, but it needs its location fixed bad.
This is what I am trying to do: simple app to get list of addresses I am interested in based on my current location.
I get the current location using location services. Now, based on this current location I want to do a search on business places without really using the SearchManager's triggerSearch. The problem with the triggerSearch is that it launches the googlemap and show the business address I am looking for and it is blocked. I want to get the control back. I do not want to launch the map with the listing. all I want to do is the get the Geopoint of the business address I am interested in using a simple web search. I tried reverseGeocoding , but it is does not work with business address. It needs full address. any suggestion?.
Simply put, all I want to do is a simple websearch , say query="whole foods, los gatos, CA" to get its full address. and then use it to get the GeoPoint.
I travel to different places to visit clients and spend few hours with each client any given day. Most of the time I am busy or forget to use a time tracker application to log my time in and time out. Are there any application out there that track time spent on a specific location. I use locale but it doesn't give me time spent at specific a location.
I used PhoneAlarm to do my call forwarding when I was on the "other" platform. It dialed my call forwarding number based on time of day. I know Locale has the capability but there is no plugin to do it. Does ANYONE have an App or know how I can call forward based on location or time of day or to at least call any number based on this criteria? I do not, or I should say, cannot use Google Voice since I have no account and they are not taking any more users.
I had an app on my Pre called Geostrings that did location-based reminders, and it was really handy. I see a few out on the Android market, anyone have one they use that they could recommend? Ideally it would work with the GPS off and just use cell towers for location if necessary, since I tend to leave my GPS off unless I need it to conserve battery, and may forget to turn it on when I have an alarm enabled. I tried "Location Alarm", but it may require the GPS, because I got no alarm with it at all, then later realized I had the GPS off.
In my application I have a list of +400 GPS coordinates which I retrieve from addresses. The application should give me the top X nearest coordinates based on my current location.
This application is possible (I think) with the distanceBetween function. But (I think) the application is really inefficient when i iterate through the list of 400 coordinates and check the distance within a certain time interval. Another option is (I think) the proximityAlert function? All coordinates are loaded in this function and when my current location comes in the radius of a coordinate an alert is given. But the downside of this solution (I think) is the high memory usage which implies a short battery life of the Android phone?
I've set up reminders for home and work. On some occasions I will get the reminder after I have been at the location after an hour or more, and sometimes I don't get notified at all? It's showing my location accurately on the phone- just the reminders aren't working correctly. Is this actually working? I mean, if you go to a location wtih a reminder, do you a) get a reminder, and b) a reminder right away- not hours after you've arrived at the location? I need to determine if it's not working yet, or if I may have an interfering app... I'm running stock JB 4.1.2 with Verizon on a Samsung S3 phone.
For those of you trying to squeeze as much time out of the battery as possible, I came across this nifty program which I don't think has been mentioned yet: AppBrain: Y5 - Battery Saver - Android app on AppBrain Official: Y5 Battery Saver: Home. When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, it uses the GSM base tower identifier (CellID) to determine the location of the Wi-Fi network and stores it in memory. It does not use the GPS. I saved my home network earlier this afternoon and went out, Wi-Fi was turned off while I was out, then after I came home and started using my phone, I was connected again, so it seems to be working so far.
Wouldn't it be cool if I could tell my phone to switch wifi on and switch 3g reception off when it senses that I am at work or home based on my gps coordinates and then reverse that when I'm on the road i.e. not at those coordinates I set. Is there an app that does this?
I have been looking for an application that has call forwarding based on location and or time. Found it. It is called Tasker and it is a very powerful application. It is still in beta but works better than anything else I found.
I'm new around here, but I thought I'd appeal to the knowledge-base to see if anyone knew of an app that might help me.
Basically, it's pretty simple. I want to be able to control how frequently my Exchange email syncs based on what time of the day it is and/or my location. Does Locale have this functionality? Just reading the documentation, I don't think it does, but I'm not too anxious to spend $10 to find out. Could there be a plugin or something for Locale that would do it?
My basic beef with my Eris is that when I'm at work, with my email running and I get an email, even if I retrieve it and mark it as read, my phone will still beep and retrieve the email when it does its sync cycle, (which I have set to every 10 minutes) so I'll basically get the email twice, even if I've read it on my computer 10 minutes before. I'd like to be able to set it so that I can control how often it syncs when I'm at work, either based on the time or location.
