Android :: Application To Store User's Latest Preference

Jul 8, 2010

I have added a mute button to a menu on my application and am wondering if it is possible to store the user's latest preference of either muted or unmuted for use when he/she reopens the application. Here is the code I am using for setting mute or umute:

public void isMute() {

if(mIsMute){
mAm.setStreamMute(AudioManager.STREAM_MUSIC, false);
mIsMute = false;

}else{
mAm.setStreamMute(AudioManager.STREAM_MUSIC, true);
mIsMute = true;
}
}

Android :: Store User Settings In Application

Apr 24, 2009

I am creating an application which connects to the server using username/password and I would like to enable the option "Save password" so the user wouldn't have to type the password each time the application starts. I was trying to do it with Shared Preferences but am not sure if this is the best solution. I would appreciate any suggestion on how to store user values/settings in Android application.

Android :: GPS Lookup And User Preference

Aug 6, 2010

I'm starting to dip my toes into LocationManager. I've created a service which tracks GPS location (interval is more than 60000ms) and updates my application with user location so they can find stuff nearby. As I understand it, users can go into their preferences and disable GPS for a particular application. I would essentially like to offer my users two modes.
1) GPS. 2) If GPS can not pull, device does not have a GPS chip, or GPS is turned off for my app, I would like to allow them to type in their zip code (or maybe switch to cell tower lookup).

The bold text is what I'm interested in. How can I tell if the device does not have GPS? How can I tell if the user has disabled GPS for my application?
Side question: My service gets launched from my 2nd Activity. I call stopService in the onDestroy method of this Activity. If I back up to my 1st Activity and the 2nd Activity is destroyed, I still notice the GPS icon on my phone running. Is stopping the service sufficient? Or do I need to stop the LocationManager in the onDestroy of the service?

Android :: Where To Store Preference Keys?

May 18, 2010

When I create preference activity I define all preferences in xml file. Every preference has a key defined in this xml. But when I access preference I write:

SharedPreferences appPreferences = PreferenceManager.getDefaultSharedPreferences(this);
boolean foo_value = appPreferences.getBoolean("foo_key_defined_in_xml", false);

Is there any way to avoid referencing "foo_key_defined_in_xml" in hard-coded way? Maybe there is a possibility to reference it in R style way (not to refer to string)?

Android :: User Preference (Any Way To Force Screen Rotation)

Apr 18, 2010

I've got an app that I don't want to auto-rotate. Currently, I've got it setup so that it is always in portrait mode. However, I'd like to add a setting to my preferences where the user can choose either portrait or landscape mode. Is there a way to force screen rotation? Or, could I perhaps make two different layout XML files, one for portrait and one for landscape, and programmatically choose which to use?

Android :: Store Whether User Account Is Pro In Secure Way

Nov 24, 2010

I am developing an Android frontend to a web application using its API. This Android application will expose some extra features if the user is a 'pro'. Therefore I need the Android app to acquire the information whether an account is pro. That is done while getting the token. In other words, when the Android application requests a token to the web application via the API, the web application provides also a flag representing whether the user is a pro.

When the Android app gets that piece of information, it stores it in the SharedPreferences, like this: this.sharedPreferencesEditor.putBoolean(Account.PRO_ACCOUNT, isPro).commit();

Then the Android app reads that value to decide whether a certain feature is available to that user. Now, my question is: is that approach easily hackable? I mean, can some clever user work-around this system and get pro-features even if they are not pro-users? How could do that?

Android :: Securely Store User Data On Device?

Apr 9, 2010

I'm writing an application wherein users will sometimes make orders through it. I want to give users the option to save their billing info (name, address, etc.) so that it can be quickly restored later if they want to make another order. The user will enter a password to secure the data. Obviously I can't just put this as a file on the device, as anyone can root/find the data. Is there a built-in Android method for storing secure data that is locked with a password? If not, what is a good place to start for storing this data securely using Java?

Android :: Android.app.Application Global Application Variable Store

Feb 1, 2009

I want to create a global variable store for a list of user defined objects. I have a LinkedList of Feed (a user defined object) that I need to be made available to a new Activity that is created. This list is displayed using a ListView and so when an item of the ListView is clicked, I need the correct Feed index to be 'passed' to the new Activity. I have no problem doing this as I create an Intent and then pass the id of the selected row. I need the new Activity to have access to the LinkedList of Feed objects.

There are different ways to do this (explained here - http://code.google.com/android/kb/framework.html). I want to use the option (quoted from link above): The android.app.Application class The android.app.Application is a base class for those who need to maintain global application state. It can be accessed via getApplication() from any Activity or Service. It has a couple of life- cycle methods and will be instantiated by Android automatically if your register it in AndroidManifest.xml.

I want to use the above method as I could then fill the LinkedList at application start and then use it throughout without any duplicates etc. Does anyone know how the android.app.Application class can be used as a global variable store that can be accessed from other classes? I cannot find any more information on this method of passing information between Activities within a single application. Any information regarding passing user defined objects would be useful and specifically how to get the above idea to work.

I am wanting to know if a developer has the ability to choose not to display the permissions needed for an app they create. For an example if there is a note taking app in the market that says no permissions needed, but in reality, it does have "internet access"capabilities not shown to the user/downloader, Is it possible for App permissions to be hidden and not displayed to the user? Can someone explain to me the process on assigning and displaying permissions on android apps?

Android :: Application That Allows The User To Drill-down Into Data

Apr 22, 2010

I have an application that allows the user to "drill-down" into data. At each level of data the user can choose a Tableview item or a Listview item. This will result in a startActivity() call for display of new data.

I can get back to the top (Parent activity) by using the Back button, which can take a while. Is there a way to "POP" back to the Parent activity and dismiss all previously allocated activities, and not have to go back through all the activities previously created?
