Android :: Can Phone Apps Detect What Phones Around Them Are Running Same App?

Oct 26, 2010

I would like a cell phone app to be able to determine how many cell phones around it are running the same app.I'm not sure what direction to start researching (API's,concepts) to understand how my phone would figure out what other phones are running the same app in a specific distance.

Android :: Auto Detect Phone #s Within Apps?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm seriously considering buying either an iphone or droid soon, and I was wondering as to the availability of a certain feature of the android os.What I am wondering is if android can recognize a phone number listed on the screen, and automatically offer to dial that number when you tap on it. (Similar to what the iphone does with its "data detectors" feature.)Also, ideally, I'd like to be able to open a spreadsheet, (which would be sort of like an editable contact list) and then be able to tap on any of the phone #s in the app and have the phone dial that number.

Android :: Detect Whether Sense UI Is Running On A Device

Jul 9, 2010

Is there any way in Android to determine whether a device is running Sense UI? I'm working on an app that is working fine with vanilla Android, but Sense UI is messing with layouts and sizes. I'd like to be able to see whether the device is running Sense UI and so I can take appropriate action.

I've got an app that needs to handle Android versions 2.2.1 and above differently than 2.2. I'd rather not create two separate apps, but I haven't been able to find a way to identify what version of Android is running on the user's device.

For my site I need to be able to tell the difference between when an Android tablet visits and when an Android phone visits.

Running Android Apps On Windows Phone?

Mar 21, 2012

I made a great app that runs great on android phones.It was obviously written in java.I am wondering now that I have the .apk file is there away to run it on a windows mobile phone.

My friend really likes it alot when he tried it on my android phone.He has however windows mobile phone.

Since it was written in java and runs on the dalvik VM I was wondering if there is a windows mobile phone app that allows you to run a .apk java based android phone app?

In theory all that would have to be done is allow windows mobile to load a dalvik VM to run the .apk file / .dex code.I don't have to reinvent the app for windows that would take alot more work

At that point I would probably be will to take a stab at getting a copy of the dalvik VM if it is not to tied down to the android os and writting on for windows phones to use http:/[url]....

ALso not only would it have to support the dalvik VM but also the android sdk functions...So more like an emulator of the whole android os... so I think maybe it would be even harder then just getting the dalvik VM running because you would have to also get the android os functions emulated as well ... i.e the android sdk... so more like a total android port instead of just a VM port.

Darn I don't think this is as easy unless of course you where just coding an app with a standard more universally excepted package like the J2ME then it would probably be a straight VM port but in that case J2ME is not really supported on the android any way....

So I think forget it for now until the phones are not so dependent on there sdk's / native code ,...etc. I don't blame java since it really is dalivk VM's fault and the fact that on an android the VM code is almost like native os code in that the functions are tied to the underlying machine code/sdk . As opposed to being more portable like a regular java VM.

Android :: Phones Running Stock

Jun 9, 2010

I Am actually impressed with the idea of Nexus one running on stock android OS keeping the UI simple and powerful, fast..

And also apart from HTC sense, most of the customized skins dont look or feel as good as stock Android. (IMO )

So i am wondering are there any other phones running stock android just like Nexus one does.

General :: Running Linux On Low-End Android Phones?

Is it possible to run Linux on low-end android phones? Possibly a method that does not need loop device support.

I'm talking about 600Mhz processor and 256mb RAM. And Damn Small Linux as the linux distro.

Is there any method to do this? I have seen methods for Ubuntu and backtrack but they require better hardware.

HTC Hero :: Phone Doesn't Keep Apps Running In Background

Nov 10, 2010

My htc hero can't seem to keep apps running in the background, save for a few, such as the engadget app. when I press home from the internet browser or the PDF viewer and try to get back into the application, the internet browser will resend info to get the page I was on back and the PDF viewer will restart just like the browser and end up in a PDF file I wasn't in before. It seems that the applications restart themselves when I get out of them. Also, I just downloaded the 2.1 update for TELUS, so I'm not sure if thats to blame.

General :: Running Out Of Phone Space / How To Limit Some Apps

Dec 11, 2012

HTC Sensation 4g which I love--but for just 1 gig of internal software, some of which is obliterated by bloatware...I keep clearing the overall cache and uninstalling apps, and every time I look up---space is disappearing again. No matter how much I seem to clear, it gets used by something.

At this point there isn't a whole l_ot left I can clear. I've moved everything I can to the card. The apps left on the phone that I control (the HTC bloat ware can't be uninstalled) are coming down to ones I want to keep.My theory is that it is three things largely eating up space: Facebook, G+ and/or gmail's contacts.

Now, all 3 apps I like and use, but in any event I must have Gmail and contact; it is highly desirable to have FB, and I really can't uninstall FB or G+ anyway with the HTC sense configuration. When I clear the cache of G+ and FB, I usually recover quite a bit of space--and then it's gone again once I use it.

So, is there anyway to limit how much data Fb/COntacts/ G+ download to my phone?

General :: Why Don't Android ICS Apps Detect External SD Card

Nov 30, 2012

I am new to android and I got myself a Micromax A110 running on android ics with 2 gb of internal SD card memory the internal memory just isn't enough for installing heavy games and storing and downloading large videos and music, so I added a 32 gb external micro SD card.. the card shows in my file manager and its contents are accessible, most apps like ttpod, ttorrent, vlc, chrome etc don't detect my external card. They only access the contents of my internal SD card, download to it.. I can't set the default directory to the external card...

When I installed nfs most wanted to my phone, it asked me to free up data in my SD card or insert another one as there was no space left due to obvious reasons of my internal SD card being filled with other apps.. I uninstalled and reinstalled it after setting the default storage location to the external storage... I found that the game installed in the internal storage this time and on startup, it gave the same message..

Is it a common problem or a limitation to the OS? Does my phone needs to be rooted for the purpose?

Android :: Apps That Sync Between Phones?

Sep 25, 2010

My finance and I recently upgraded to Andriod phones (Samsung Fascinate and Driod X), and I'm looking for apps that sync between different phones. Specifically, to do lists, grocery lists, calendars, etc.

Anyone have any suggestions?

FYI, we already maintain a google calendar between the two of us as it makes scheduling things far easier than always checking in.

General :: Sync All Apps Between Android Phones

Mar 31, 2012

I have 3 android phones, one old G2, one xperia X8 and recently I got a free motoluxe from t-mobile.

I would like to make sure all the installed apps are always synced between each phone: If i install a few apps on the G2, I will be able to install them on any other phone by clicking a button or such without having to remember what i did install.

One major problem is that the motoluxe is not rooted yet, but both the other have custom roms.

General :: Note 2 - Apps Can't Detect MicroSD Files

Dec 13, 2013

I have a problem on my galaxy note II GT-N7100, running Paranoid Android 4.0 beta, android 4.4.1

Ever since I've upgraded to KitKat, some of my apps don't detect data on external micro SD card. Most noticeably quick office, the bards tale. As most of my files are stored on micro SD this is very annoying. I can access those files using es file explorer but it would be better if apps could detect them as well. My external SD card pathway should be mnt/media_rw/sdcard1 but that's empty and I get invalid file path error.

I can access the ext sd by storage/sdcard01 though. I've tried to format my ext SD, edit platform.xls etc but no solution. So any clue how to make quockoffice access documents on external micro sd?

Android :: Apps Not Appearing Market Place On Certain Phones

Jan 24, 2010

My family has got three android phones, an HTC Hero, a Samsung Galaxy, and a T-Mobile Pulse, all are running android 1.5 with the latest manufacturer firmware. On the T-Mobile Pulse, when searching for a couple of apps (ones that I have installed on the other two devices), I get returned 'no matches'. For example, if I search for 'BrightAI', which is a developer who has around 8 apps on the market, I get no matches. If I search for individual apps, I get 'no matches'. Searching for the same on either the Hero or Galaxy returns the expected results. Does anyone have any ideas why certain apps are accessible on one device, but not the other?

Motorola Droid X : Way To Install Apps From Other Android Phones?

Jul 23, 2010

Since the Dinc also has root, I would think they also have posted master backups in their forums. (I'm still trying to find some links.) Wouldn't their backup have some stuff we don't, (like the cool weather app that shows rain drops on their screen and a windshield wiper that wipes it clean), that could be installed on our phones?

Android :: Non Free Vs Copy Protected Apps For Rooted Phones?

Jul 9, 2009

I'm still a little confused as to what the situation is here. With a rooted Android phone, are all non-free market apps unavailable, or just ones with copy-protection? For non-free, un-protected apps (are there any?), can they be purchased directly and installed on the phone without going through the market?

Motorola Droid :: Mix And Match Apps From Different Phones?

May 13, 2010

I am new to the Root scene, and am having a good time so far. I recently switched to the DROID from my Eris, and thought it a good opportunity to learn about rooting and ADB, using my Eris an experiment. Successful on that front I'm working on rooting my 2.1 DROID tonight.I checked around and couldn't find much/anyone on this but it may be because I don't know how to ask the right question.Can I ADB pull HTC apps off my Eris and Push them to my DROID? For example, I enjoy the functionality of the HTC People app over the stock contacts on the DROID. Can I mix and match?
