KitKat 4.4 :: Countdown Timer For Google Now?

Nov 8, 2013

One thing that really bothers me about Google Now on a mobile device is that if you say "Set a timer for 'x' minutes" it will set an alarm (vs a countdown timer) for 'x' minutes into the future. If you say the same command to Google Search on Chrome on a PC it will set a countdown timer. I would really like it if I could just say "Okay Google (Now)... Set a timer for 10 minutes" and then have it start counting down.

Does KK updates Google Now to the ability to set a timer?

How To Make Countdown Timer

Feb 27, 2012

As a part of my app I would like to include a countdown timer.

I would much rather have the timer count in minutes and seconds, so any good tutorial to set such a timer up I would rather they point me in that direction first (I have looked)

My problem is that I'm getting this error when I press the button to open the activity

02-27 21:07:47.776: E/AndroidRuntime(711): Uncaught handler: thread main exiting due to uncaught exception
02-27 21:07:47.786: E/AndroidRuntime(711): java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to start activity ComponentInfo{converter.units.kitchen/converter.units.kitchen.Timer}: java.lang.NullPointerException

I currently have the following java activity

import
android.app.Activity;
import
android.os.Bundle;
import
android.os.CountDownTimer;
import

[code]....

It was working fine when I had a fixed number as the starting value, although since reverting to a fixed number it still does not work.

Android :: Countdown Timer Via Thread?

Jan 23, 2009

I've created an app that functions as a countdown timer via a thread, a wakelock, and a handler back to my activity. My question is, what will cause my thread to die, or app to not be running in memory anymore? I've had this happen once, and can't seem to recreate it again.

Android : Countdown Timer App That Actually Works?

Oct 1, 2009

I was rather surprised to find a couple of features missing from android, having just moved from a sony-ericsson w200i (a phone which i bought for a fifth of the price of my new galaxy), in which these features seemed obvious

i did get tone picker to sort out the lacking ringtone settings etc. but when i tried to find a simple countdown app i hit a bit of a wall
from the ones i tested out, "oi countdown" and "countdown alarm" seemed to work ok up until the point the alarm rang and i couldn't shut the thing up in any other way than booting the whole phone
"snappy countdown timer" is the closest i've found for a simple app to remind you when your pizza is done, but that has the annoying issue of the ui being way too sensitive to pick a specific time (on minute-scale)

so is there a simple app to do the job of an egg timer that actually works?

Motorola Droid :: Best Countdown Timer? (Cooking And Poker Games)

Jan 6, 2010

Anyone have experience with a good countdown timer that works well with Droid? I think I downloaded the "Ultimate Stopwatch" once and it didn't work well (The alarm sound was way too soft). There are dozens of timer apps, and it seems people have various problems with all of them, aside from maybe a few pay ones. But I just want something really simple. Just for timing things like cooking stuff in the oven and poker games. Any suggestions?

Motorola Droid X :: Countdown Timer Alarm Volume Low / Is This Normal?

Jul 30, 2010

Is the alarm on the installed countdown timer really really low on everyone else's phone? I use the same style ringer for my alarm clock and timer. The clock is fine, but the timer alarm is so low it can barely be heard at the highest setting, 7. Is this normal?

KitKat 4.4 :: Photo Sync Via Google+ To PC

Jan 23, 2014

I'm still new to Android in general, so maybe I don't know something. I like to option of automatic sync of my photos to G+. However, when it comes to accessing those photos from my PC, it's rather inconvenient. The web interface is, to my feeling, rather lacking.

Is there a way to access the photos as if they were in a regular folder? Mostly, I want to be able to select a number of pictures and move them. To do this, right now I have to mouse-select them one by one, then download a weird zip archive, then select them one by one again and delete them from G+. Is there a way to do this faster and easier? If not, is there a way to sync them as they are now, but to Google Drive instead of G+?

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) Behind Firewall?

Nov 15, 2013

easy way to use GCM (push message on Android for Gmail, Hangouts, etc.) behind a firewall?

The problem is not that companies want to block GCM, they are just unaware of the fact that their firewall is blocking it by default. GCM uses ports 5228, 5229 & 5230 which are almost always blocked on corporate networks. This means push messages don't come through. It also seriously screws with Hangouts (when I open the app random messages come though while others don't; this results in only being able to see parts of conversations).

Response from Google is to request the ports to be opened. This is not an option as I work as a consultant and move between clients. I can't get them all to open up the ports.

Google is seriously hampering the use of Android and Google services for professional use by using non-standard ports. I don't understand why they are not openly pushing for the ports to be opened by default or use standard ports (could also just be as a fallback if the preferred ports are blocked).I can't use Hangouts professionally now (which I would prefer over Skype).

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Search Widget Removal?

For some reason google search widget is being obnoxious and i cant remove it from my home. it wont even respond to long presses. i tried deletion and that made my phone unable to reboot.

so I just re-flashed my CM11 ROM again. It just bothers me because its always sending out packet data and utilizing my cpu even in background...i thought it would be easy. my galaxy express sgh-i437 only has a dual core 1.5ghz.

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Apps Not Working Over WiFi

Mar 28, 2014

I recently swapped my iPhone 3GS for a Moto G and immediately upgraded it to KitKat. Since then I've been facing a variety of problems. Firstly, my camera would intermittently stop working and give the 'Camera Error' message. This was subsequently fixed by Moto when they released an update.

But another problem has been everpresent right from the start. Over my home WiFi, a number of apps requiring Google Sign in fail to work! These are :

1. Play Store
2. Facebook
3. YouTube
4. Google Search (Bing search works just fine!)

These work just fine when i switch off my WiFi and turn to 3G.

I have done a lot of research and tried a number of supposed fixes that worked for other people. They include :

1. Checking the Date & Time on my device
2. Switching to Airplane mode and back
3. Deleting my Google Account & Signing in again
4. Clearing cache, force stop etc

None of these seem to work. But at times, all of a sudden they start working. But it's completely random cause if I try the next day or something, they revert back to their non-functional state.

My WiFi at home runs on Google DNS servers. I can access these websites through my laptop.

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Now Voice Search And Bluetooth Combination?

Apr 21, 2014

I have a Galaxy S5 with 4.4.2. I dont recall if this happened when I had my S4 but this is my issue. When I am in my car and connected to the cars bluetooth, whenever I want to speak to google to do a search or something it goes through the bluetooth of the car. This would be fine but sometimes it waits like 2-3 seconds until the bluetooth in car picks up and messes up my train of thought. I would like to make the voice search not use the bluetooth when connected.

KitKat 4.4 :: Google Play Movies With Restricted Profiles?

Mar 20, 2014

So I upgraded my daughter's Nexus 7 to 4.4.2, and set up a restricted profile for her. I cannot figure out how to watch purchased Play Movies & TV. Her account has permission for it under settings, and I can browse for the purchased movies in the app, but they are all non-purchased. Her profile is still showing as tied to my Google account, so purchases should carry over, but alas, no such luck. they don't seem to HAVE a support department. Guess you can't expect that from such a small company...
