Android :: Cool Widgets - Any Recommendations?

Aug 18, 2010

Let me start by listing the ones that would be useless to me:
I don't get the point of weather widgets. I don't need to know the exact temperature every time I look at my phone. I just check the weather app once in the morning and I'm good for the day. The weather doesn't change that often people!

I don't need a clock widget. The time is always displayed at the top anyway, and on my phone's lock screen too along with the date. I don't use any alarm clocks. I don't use the calendar for anything. My days are all the same. I don't follow any sports. I got rid of the search widget that was running on my phone since there's a dedicated search button on the phone.

I do enjoy following politics and technology news (I'm a computer programmer). Right now there's a single widget running on my phone called "Battery Indicator" because I like to know the exact percentage of power remaining rather than an graphic approximation. So, any widget recommendations for me? Any cool widgets you enjoy that you think I might wanna try?

Android :: Cool But Useless Home Screen Trick - Overlap Widgets

Jun 20, 2010

I haven't confirmed if this trick can be achieved on the default or other home launchers, but just now, I was able to overlap widgets together. Could be a bug with LauncherPro. I can actually press in between the top layer of widgets to access the underlying Facebook widget.

Android :: New Smartphone Recommendations

Sep 1, 2010

I just realized that I posted my last thread in The Lounge rather then Android Lounge which I intended to Makes sense why I haven't gotten any replies. Anywho, this is what I posted earlier Just signed up for your forum to ask for your recommendations for my first smartphone. Now, I'm leaning towards an android mainly because I don't want an iPhone and it seems like it has some great feature as well as a lot of potential.Now, the only issue is that I live in Canada and I'm with Rogers. (Sim cards)My current criteria is that I want a touch phone and it has to support a sim card. External qwerty keyboard is a bonus!I'm sure you all get requests like this all of the time but some help selecting a new phone would be great. I tried doing my own research on what phone to buy but I'm really not great with hacking phones and whatnot to make things work with my carrier but I'm willing to;dr:Need smartphone with sim card and touchscreen.

I have a huge filofax thing, which I would like to ditch from my bag, and wondered if I could turn my phone into something more suitable.

I often use a note pad to jot down passwords & username etc. Any suggestions would be great, free or not i dont mind!

Games :: Any Recommendations For Good Android RPG?

Sep 28, 2010

As the title suggests, can someone recommend a good Android RPG? Not necessarily the kind where you just do jobs and fight (like Mafia Wars), but more of a 3D RGP, like D&D type stuff or even Final Fantasy. Any good ones out there?

Android :: Want Model / Carrier Recommendations?

Feb 1, 2010

Let me start by saying that I'm sure this has been covered but a search revealed nothing and an updated discussion can always help. So again, sorry for covering treaded ground, but here we go.I'm leaving my job and giving up my company blackberry - so I need a new phone/carrier/the whole package. I am at this point pretty darn addicted to smartphones and use them heavily for web browsing, email, maps, twitter, playing music, and scheduling myself (I don't really play games though). While my blackberry curve was leagues better than my old Windows Mobile-powered-Wing it still has left a lot to be desired. I need a step up.So its basically iphone vs an Android phone and while the iphone seems to win in nearly all the benchmarks out there, I just can't get past the Apple Tax, closed platform, non-replaceable battery, and my general Google fanboy-ism. I could also see myself developing OSS apps at some point - which Android has the more compelling story for.Further research has lead me to view my options as the Nexus, HTC Droid, or Eris. The Eris - although it has great reviews - just seems a bit kiddie so it's a distant third.My concerns are in this order* Good hardware (I'm ok with an onscreen keyboard unless the touchscreen sucks)
* Total cost of ownership
* Ability to use at my new job (meaning syncing with Exchange Server - though this shouldn't be a huge problem)
* Snazzy Operating system.

Android :: Need To Have Some Good App / Games Recommendations

Aug 3, 2010

This morning I stupidly managed to drop my phone down the toilet. Took it to CPW and got a brand new one replaced (luckily still had insurance). One thing's that disappointed me is that all my apps have disappeared. I'm having a relapse in memory and for the life of me can't remember the apps I had installed. Anyone have any good apps to recommend? Good music players, good ebook readers, etc? Games?

Android :: Need Phone Model Recommendations

Oct 19, 2010

My contract with T-Mobile UK is up for renewal & i think its time to upgrade from my beloved G1 to something else, Question is, What to? Over the past few months i have been looking at many different phone's and i have no idea what to go for. Basically I'm after the following from my phone:
*Android 2.1/2.2 Based device
*Physical Keyboard
*Vanilla/Stock Android (No UI)
*Better Battery Life then my G1. The phones I've been looking at are the Motorola Milestone, Milestone 2 & the HTC Desire Z/T-Mobile G2. The only thing with all all of them is they all feature a new UI (Either MotoBlur or Sense) which I'm not after. I thought i had solved all my problems with the T-Mobile G2 (the Desire Z but with just Stock Android) until I found out its for the US only. Is there any other models that anyone can recommend or am I just going have to put up with not having Stock/Vanilla Android?

Android :: How Can I Create Photo - Apply Cool Effects With Camera

Jun 11, 2010

I'd like to make an Android app that lets a user apply cool effects to photos taken with the camera. There are already a few out there, I know, but I'd like to try my own hand at one.

I have been googling and stack-overflowing, but so far I've mostly found some references to published papers or books. I am ordering this one from Amazon presently - Digital Image Processing: An Algorithmic Introduction using Java

After some reading, I think I have a basic understanding of manipulating the RGB values for all the pixels in the image. My main question is how do I come up with a transformation that produces cool effects?

By cool effects I mean some like those in these iPhone apps:

I already have quite a bit of experience with Java, and I've made my first app for android already. Any ideas?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a class (online) or tutorial that teaches android programing for dummies? It's frustrating knowing exactly what you want to do and no idea how to do it. Something that uses basic language and explains each line in detail to help a person remember how to do it later. Any suggestions would be great.

LG Ally :: Cool Application List

Sep 27, 2010

Here is a list of cool android applications.

Universal Androot Beta -roots your phone to allow certain apps to run
Titanium Backup -delete stuff with this F
Astro -manage applications and files with this F
SetCPU -manage cpu use and is good for overclocking and conserving battery power P
AdFree Android- Removes most ads in the browser and other apps. F

Switcher PRO - lets you reboot to recovery or bootloader from a widget, it also allows you to put up a whole bunch of other tools.
Metamorph - Lets you change your theme
Rom manager - manage you roms... use the amon ra recovery zip with this for the ally


Angrybirds full F
Graviturn F
The Moron Test ?
Abduction world attack P/F
Bejeweled P
Hyperjump P
Nosecandy F
Snesoid -Super Nintendo P/F
Gensoid -Sega Genisis P/F
Gameboid - Gameboy Advanced emulator, needs a gba bios P/F
GBCoid -Gameboy Color, needs a gbc bios P/F
Nesoid -Nintendo P/F
Find the the roms (games) and bios on torrents
Find most of the apps on the market or on the fourm

-Normal apps-

ADW launcher -my favorite application launcher, makes phone run faster and more stable F
Lookout - a good antivirus F
Zeam launcher - a fast lightweight application launcher, makes phone run faster and more stable F

Opera mini - a really fast and easy to use web browser for the ally F
Dolphin HD - a secure web browser for the ally, it is theme-able and has tabbed browsing F

Advanced Task Manager -helps you close running programs P/F

(auto task killing can make your phone run slower look at death2all110's post. It can work well if you don't kill all your essential running tasks. task killers can be helpful if a user wants to manual end a locked up programs such as emulator. this can be easily be speed up by excluding system essential tasks from your end all button)

-Here's my exclude list for my task manager:
sync feeds - voice search - voice search - Google talk storage - weather & toggle widget - setcpu - superuser - adw.launcher - clock - calendar - beautiful widgets - advanced task manager -

I have 50mb free mem most of the time. (more than enough)
This allows me to keep all essential programs within memory and to free up my locked up programs easily, just remember to exclude your launcher.

Bty heres my setcpu profile also, it saves battery power (600 max for non overclocked users)
charging full 768max 320min on-demand 50%
battery<80% 748max 320min on-demand 50%

battery<30% 320max 122min Power Save 50%
battery<10% 122max 122min Power Save 50%
