As we know, Verizon dropped the wireless part of their name and they have adopted this "Rule the Air" thing. I saw a commercial earlier and I wanted to know the phone they were showing in the commercial was it a Droid X? Has anyone seen the commercial? I think it was a Droid x because the electronics around the street were becoming animated and moving around and plus the phone in the person's hand looked way to big to be any of verizons other current phones. Idk lol maybe i am just anxious for the X
We've red the gmaps license agreement but it wasn't to clear for us if we can use that Gmaps API for a commercial Android application. Do you know any details regarding this subject? Do we have to pay some fee to Google if we want to use it inside a commercial application?
I am watching the Lakers vs OKC and just saw my first DInc commercial. Just a short one that is a carryover of the other DROID commercials. Didn't even really show the phone. Just more of the robotic sounds and futuristic visuals.
Watching the game right now, and saw the my touch commercial where he is exercising. Does anyone know what apps he is using? I'm really interested in the app that is counting his calories while he is doing crunches.
Under the terms of the Apache Public License, can I use some (graphic) resources in my commercial app? More specifically, in my (proprietary) Android app, I want to use some graphics from Android. Since Android is licensed under the Apache Public License, I downloaded the source and took the resources I wanted. But I was wondering, if I want to sell this app, or not release the source code, am I allowed? Do I have to put any notices in my app description?
I just saw a commercial for the Chase Real Cash Debit Card and in the scene where the guy is standing at the counter and his phone rings, he pulls out a MotoDroid! Just thought I'd share this. I think that it's cool that we are finally seeing Android phones in other commercials. I still haven't seen one in a TV show or movie yet, but I'm sure it's only time before I do. I tried finding the commercial with google, but I guess it's just too new of a commercial to be on the internet yet.
My phone just randomly started playing a "commercial"? for some McAfee Deep something product, talking about phone secrutiy and stealth attacks and how attacks now start at the kernel level? There was no video playing, I was on my home screen while the sound was coming out.
I started closing apps 1 by 1 to see if it would stop. First I thought it was pulse, so closed it first, then Google Chrome and nothing. I ended up closing all of my apps and it was still playing!
I'm interested in developing an android app that makes use of an OpenCV android port. Particularly, I want to use SURF features which comes embedded in the OpenCV framework but I'm not sure if then I will be able to sell this app. anyway, is there any non-free app making use of any of the OpenCV android ports?
Can we use the applications that released with Android Open Source Project in our commercial products? For example, the "Browser" and the "Contacts". And I also found some demo applications in SDKSamples, like Home and NotePad, can them be used for commercial products? Do we need to pay extra license fee for using these open source applications?
I have been searching around for free or commercial AR toolkits and need some advice on the best one! I don't want to have one that recognizes a pattern and creates a shape. The idea I have uses the local location and uses POI's from a server to present them onto an AR view.
I'm currently developing a small non-commercial game for Android which is based on OpenGL ES. Except for some minor issues (slow as crap emulator being the biggest) I've really enjoyed it so far and would love to continue developing for it. The question is: What are your thoughts on the future of Android as an environemnt for the game market? I read an article somewhere that said that the IPhone is the preferred platform for games, but since I don't own a Mac and won't bother with some complicated work around to get it to work on Windows I'm currently not interested in it. So, what do you think? Is it worth spending alot of time (and potentially money) on a larger Android game project?
I'm an Android total-noob but in the last few weeks I've installed the JDK/Eclipse/Android SDK on 2 PC's. Both installs took a day of tweaking and dealing with configuration problems and getting the different parts to play together, and generally were a PITA! On one PC I'm STILL dealing with random, sporadic instances of the "HelloAndroid] emulator-5554 disconnected! Cancelling 'com.example.helloandroid.HelloAndroid activity launch'!" problem that has been discussed here and on the Android Google group! No one seems to know for sure what causes it. ALSO in the last few weeks I've installed Visual Studio 2010 on the same PC's to do my regular work as a Windows sw developer. On both PC's all I had to do was pop in the DVD, type in the product code, come back a few hours later and start coding!! So my question is whether there is a commercial (i.e., $$) sw development environment for Android that installs and runs as easily as VS 2010 so I can focus my time on actual sw development and not on fighting with the development system.
I am sure you have all seen the new iPhone commercial where they brag about it being able to search the internet among other things while in a call. I tried this on my Hero yesterday, but it first said that the data connection was being used and to enable Wifi. I enabled wifi and tried again, but no browser would connect, Google Maps wouldnt find my location, seems like Android cant handle this? Is there something I missed? Would this be an Android thing, Sprint thing, etc?
