Android :: Can We Register A File Type To Application?

Nov 9, 2010

I use my file explorer a lot. It eliminates much of the "You have to put the files here" sort of requirement of many applications. And in many case - movie files for example - when you touch the file, it opens it in the appropriate application. There are exceptions like *.epub files. When I touch one, I get the famous "...does not support." message. So the question is, can I "register" Laputa (for example) to be the app to open *.epub files - Similar to the File Types dialog in Windows?I suppose this might require root access?

Android :: Register File Type With Browser - Cannot Download?

Jun 13, 2010

In Android, I am trying to make it so that the user downloads a font from the browser and I am able to view the font when downloaded. After multiple issues, I still have one lingering one: Registering the file type with the browser. When trying to download with the Emulator (2.1-u1), I get "Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone". Okay, so maybe its my manifest file. Updated with this:

<activity android:name=".MainActivity" android:label="MainActivity">
<intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
<catagory android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE"/>
<data android:scheme="http"/> <data android:scheme="https"/>
<data android:scheme="ftp"/> <data android:host="*"/>
<data android:mimeType="*/*"/> <data android:pathPattern=".*zip"/>
</intent-filter> </activity>

Went back to the browser, and fails again. Restart the Emulator, still fails. Note that I got this format from posts here.

Android :: How Can I Register My Application On Andriod To Handle Type Of QR Code?

Oct 19, 2010

The built-in barcode scanner application on Android (based, I think, on zxing) reads QR Codes and launches that data into an application based on the leading text. For example, "BEGIN:VCAL" might launch a calendar application; "http:" might launch a browser.How can I "register" my application so the OS (or the Barcode application) will call it for a specific type (i.e. leading characters) of QR Code text?

Android :: Register Application For Files And Documented MIME - Type

Jan 28, 2010

I want to register my application for files of a certain popular and well-documented MIME-type. The problem is that Android does not seem to recognize this MIME-type. The following sample code demonstrates this:

package com.example.helloandroid;
import android.app.Activity; import android.os.Bundle; import android.util.Log; import android.widget.TextView;

public class HelloAndroid extends Activity { /** Called when the activity is first created. */ @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); TextView tv = new TextView(this); tv.setText("Hello, Android"); setContentView(tv); String extn = android.webkit.MimeTypeMap.getFileExtensionFromUrl("/data/a.xyz"); String xyzMimeType = android.webkit.MimeTypeMap.getSingleton().getMimeTypeFromExtension (extn); Log.d ("HelloAndroid", "extn: " + extn + " | xyzMimeType: " + xyzMimeType); }

}

Android :: To Unregister A Broadcast Receiver Register Registered In Manifest File

Mar 19, 2010

I have been able to register and unregister a broadcast receiver from the java code and know that a broadcast receiver is unregistered (even if it is not done explicitly) on its own as the process that registered it is killed. Now I have a broadcast receiver which has been registered through manifest file and not through the java code, and need to unregister the broadcast receiver from the java code. Since this, i think would need a reference to System context that instantiates the broadcast receiver.

General :: No File Extension Association - Unknown MIME Type File

Apr 3, 2013

I'm using JB 1.4.2 on Razr i. There's one thing that's annoying me a lot. I've installed the SNES Emulator SuperGNES and I've found that every single file type that have no app associated is showing SuperGNES icon and associated with it. Example: .log, .db, etc. Even files that have no extension is associated with it. The same problem occur when ZArchiver is installed. I don't know if it's a bug of these two apps or Android's in general. Remembering that this associations are shown only inside Android's native file manager. It's like every "unknown MIME type file" act like being the same.

Android :: Good Way To Register Users From Phone Application

Jul 22, 2009

We have a web application and we've built phone applications (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry) to be companions to the site. The usual workflow is that an existing user of the site gets a phone app and then plugs their existing credentials into the phone app and they are off and running, but more often now we are seeing folks who are downloading the app and then (and this should not surprise anyone) don't read the help screen that explains they need to go and get credentials at the web site and therefore cannot connect to the application which does require registration to manage their content. This is a giant usability fail condition.

So we know that we need to put user registration workflows on the phone app. Other than the obvious solution of duplicating our registration page on the mobile, does anyone know of a better identity solution for the phone? For example, on the desktop we also use Facebook Connect as an identity server and the users love it. I'm looking for something that simple that we can implement across the major smartphone platforms.
Clarifying note: I should add here that this registration mechanism is likely to; and it would be desirable if it did, go hand in hand with a general identity/authorization mechanism such as the Facebook mechanism mentioned below. One other place I'm poking around is to see whether there's an openId solution that does not require a browser to pop up.

Motorola Droid X :: PDANet - Cannot Register Application Button Disappeared

Aug 2, 2010

I love my Droid X. I downloaded PdaNet and paid for it. I received the receipt and clicked on the Pdanet tray icon and hit the register button. I wasn't smart enough to use copy and paste for the serial number and I typed it in instead. Tried three times (my typing isn't that bad) and all tries failed and the register button disappeared from the icon. I have tried to obtain help from PdaNet but no luck so far. The app is worthless to me if I can't access secure sites so I am ready to go in a different direction unless one of you can give me a suggestion for registering PdaNet.
