Android : Apps That Control Data (3G) Connections With A Schedule / Timer?

Jun 17, 2010

I am knew to android and am absolutely loving it on my Desire, so glad i never went with a certain fruit company

Anyways, i have had a search around here and on the market place and cannot find an app that suits my needs.

Basically, i run timeriffic (which is fantastic by the way) and mostly i use a wi-fi connection. However there are times when i know there is no wi-fi around eg. when i travel to work, so i have it turned off. What i would like to know is if there is any app out there that would allow me to schedule a time to turn on my 3g data connection (i have APNdroid installed and 3g disabled as default) for those periods when my wi-fi is off so i always have a data connection.

I did see the app Data on Demand and this would have been perfect but it did not work with my Desire.

Can anyone using a Desire let me know if they have tried Data on Demand and got it working and what conditions it was working. Can someone recommend an app that meets my needs? I guess if not i will need to contact the developer of timeriffic (who i have seen around here) and see if there is anyway he could intergrate with APNdroid and control 3G data connections.

Android :: App Design For Multiple Data Connections

Oct 18, 2010

I am working on developing an application that requires me to establish multiple client-server based connections. Connection can be of two types where the Android device can be a server or a client. I can have up to 6 - 8 connections. Once the connections are set-up they need to be running in the background and are not typically affected by UI actions.Since each connection can be blocking, I am wondering what is a good away to design this app. Should I have two services for handling the server and client connections? Each service could have a "connection manager" that can spawn new threads when necessary. Or does creating two services even help? I presume spawning new processed would not be good as they will be expensive. Is this correct? I would appreciate any suggestions. Also, if this use case is not typical please let me know if you need more information to make any recommendation.

General :: App For Intercepting Data Connections?

Oct 30, 2011

I am looking for an app that can:

- make a log of all the other apps, including stock ones, that make attempts or actual connections to the internet, and at what time
- be able to intercept those connections
- preferably I would create a white list of apps that are allowed to connect, but others do not have permission.

Purposes include:
- saving on bandwidth in poorer countries where internet is expensive.
- making sure apps or malware doesn't try to send off my data when it shouldn't be.
- prevent annoying background sync/apps from running when I don't want them

I find it strange that we either give all the permissions the app wants, or it doesn't work. Why can't we restrict their internet access?

Does this sound feasible? Does it already exist?

I'm rooted and using an Asus Transformer.

Motorola Milestone :: Disable Data Connections

May 6, 2010

I'm a new droid user and have tried desperately to disable all data connections.I'm without a data plan so I feel very unsafe just going on the net or using the apps I downloaded, afraid that it might accidentally use data connections.I've tried disabling the 2G network, data roaming, background data (what is it anyway) and even going to the key pad, typing *#*#4636#*#* to disable the data connection and data on boot up. I'm left with disabling the APN but don't know how to. And the thing that worries me is that I am unable to go to the Android Market because I will need to enable the background data which I'm afraid that will cause $. And also, I don't know if doing all that will be effective.

Android :: How To Develop A Soft Keyboard - HTTP Connections To Synchronize Keyboard Data With A Cloud DB And Other Phones

Aug 13, 2010

I would like to play around with some ideas and develop a soft keyboard for Android to replace the default one.

Is there any general information about soft keyboard development for Android out there?

Any best practices or guidelines?

Can I do with my keyboard application pretty much anything I could do with a normal Android application?
Can I do HTTP connections to synchronize keyboard data with a cloud DB and other phones I have?
Can I open other windows/screens from a key press, e.g. to display a custom input interface different to a normal QWERTY one. If that doesn't work, can I use a pop-up dialog instead?

Android :: Best Revision Control For Apps?

Jul 31, 2010

I have my app that I am about to release as a beta. It also has bug reporting feature thanks to ACRA.

Now I want to be updating the beta and also fix any bugs that has been reported.
But of course I would want to keep the original released copy so that I can figure out the bugs and what not.
And then as final versions get released I would want to do the same with each released version.

So I need some kind of version control system. I am new to all this so I'm not sure what the best/simplest way to go about doing so.

I'v googled around and there seems to be numerous revision control systems with a lot of features I don't really need.

But as long at its easy to do what I'm looking for I'll be happy with it. I am also using eclipse so something that goes great with it would be nice.

I'm not too sure how it would all work.

Android :: App To Control What Type Of Connection Other Apps Use

Jun 27, 2010

BB user here and the only thing holding me back from getting an Android is the fear of going over my 200MB limit on data.

I want to use my Android over 3G for emails and calendar sync. Everything else through WiFi because I am constantly connected to WiFi through my campus/home/work. Only need email on the go.

Is there a program that can control what type of data other apps use?

For instance:
Email: 3G (WiFi Preferred)
Calendar Sync: 3G (WiFi Preferred)
Contact Sync: 3G (WiFi Preferred)
Browser: WiFi Only
YouTube: Wifi Only

Or along these lines.

Does anyone have any app that comes to mind?

General :: Mobile Data Is Back Under JD Control

Jul 26, 2012

I've noticed that my mobile data is turning off by itself. Initially I thought it was JuiceDefender throwing a wobbly, but then I noticed that its event log was full of comments like "Mobile data is back under JD control" and something about reloading a profile. By watching the notification in the drop down menu I noticed that it was perpetually restarting itself.

I uninstalled it, and tried another app called 2x Battery and the same thing was happening. The data toggle in the setting menu of MIUI was greyed out to show data had been turned off, and 2x Battery stated that data had been toggled by the user.

It seems to be that a third party app is deactivating mobile data. Is there any app out there that can log when an app deactivates data, so I can find out the culprit?

Android :: Battery - Wifi 3g Gps Schedule?

Sep 20, 2010

Is there any app's out there that you can put your wifi 3g gps etc on a schedule. Mainly to turn off like 12:00 AM to save battery, and turn back on at whatever time you set? I know there are some that will turn your wifi and 3g (user set) off if your battery gets below a certain point (user set) but these are like $3.00. To me it seems like a rip off, since its such a simple app... Anyways does anyone know of an app like this, if not would anyone be interested in developing it? Seems simple for someone who knows how to create app's. The reason I think this would be better than the battery manager's that just shut your data wifi and gps off after your battery hits a certain % is because sometimes your battery will be just charged but you will go to sleep at night leaving your wifi/3g on and your battery will drain until it hits whatever %, then the manager will turn your data off. Meanwhile you just lost a whole lot of battery that you didnt need to.
