Android :: Date.getTime() And Daylight Saving Time?

Jul 19, 2009

What will Date.getTime() returns in a region with Daylight Saving Time enabled? Does this function returns a DST time or not? I call Date.getTime() in a place with DST (such as U.S.), and convert it to a local time in China (no DST), I get a wrong time (one hour ahead of local time in China). How can I fixed this problem?Maybe I didn't tell tings clearly, but we don't use DST in China... I don't understand DST very well.

Samsung Moment :: Potential - Daylight Saving Time

Mar 13, 2010

I live in Arizona, and we don't observe DST. On my computer, all my Google calendar appointments from tomorrow on have the correct time and my calendar time zone is set to Arizona. On my device, everything tomorrow onward has been shifted ahead one hour, as if DST should be affecting my appointments.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Handle Daylight Saving Time With Calendar?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm the new owner of an X10 and I'm, so far ;-), really happy about it. I still have an issue that prevent me to throw away my old Palm agenda. I have a Google Calendar that is synchronised to both my Palm and now mu X10. I notice a strange "one hour shift" issue with my X10: every appointment after the Daylight Saving Time is shifted from one hour on the X10. I figure that this is related to the way the X10 handle the daylight saving: the automatic setting for the time zone is GMT+02:00:HMG+2:00 whereas Google calendar says correctly that Paris is on the GMt+01:00 with a one hour shift due to summer time. Is there a way to fix this issue that prevent me from using the agenda?

Android :: Handcent Timestamp Glitch - Daylight Saving?

Nov 8, 2010

I'm a Verizon user in the US Pacific time zone (GMT-8) and ever since daylight saving ended yesterday, I've had a glitch on my incoming message non-Verizon timestamps...they come in as GMT. I just received one at 1:42pm and it says 5:42am. This has been happening all day yesterday and today on messages sent from non-Verizon customers but the ones from my Verizon-using wife are just fine. I can't find any way to fix it in the software itself.

Android :: Repeating Alarms With AlarmManager And Daylight Saving / Leap Years

Feb 9, 2009

I'm looking for a way to trigger repeated actions. I'd like the user to be able to choose the intervals at which these actions will be executed. One should be able to choose from intervals like "Every Day", "Every Month", and "Every Year". The setRepeating(int, long, long, PendingIntent) method of the android.app.AlarmManager class only supports a long value for choosing the interval between the execution of the pending intent. My problem now is, that I can not just compute the number of milliseconds that "fit into one day", since not all days have the same length (daylight saving). This is also a problem for the interval type "year" (leap years).

I had a quick look at the android.os.Handler class, but as I understood the documentation I'd need to keep a service thread running for my actions to be executed at some future time. I don't consider that a good option for my needs ;-) Is there anything in the API I could configure with a cron expression or the like? I was also thinking about scheduling an alarm with the AlarmManager for a single execution at a given date/time and then having a receiver that does the rescheduling according to a cron expression attached to the intent. But I don't know if I just got something completely wrong here and I'm reinventing the wheel with that approach

Samsung Epic 4G :: Daylight Savings Time By 2 Hours Instead Of 1

Nov 7, 2010

I live in the central time zone. This morning I woke up and my phone decided to adjust for daylight savings time by 2 hours instead of 1. I checked the time and date settings to find that the date settings were checked to "automatic". Somehow the phone decided I was in the Mountain time zone instead of central. why/how that would happen? If I uncheck the automatic, and manually change my time zone it works fine.

Android :: Enable To Pick Date / Time At Same Time ?

Is there any android widget that enable to pick the date and the time at the same time ? I already use the basic date picker and date picker:

but they are not that sexy and user friendly (I found). Do you know if a widget including both date and time exists? Thanks a lot,WW.

Jelly Bean :: Time Resets Itself And No Option To Manually Set Date And Time

Dec 30, 2013

I recently received an LG optimus f3 with android 4.1.2.

After activating the phone, it displayed the correct date and time for my time zone, so I didn't mess around with settings to reset the time, as I would with any other device.

However, I've noticed that the time changes to exactly an hour ahead, before changing itself back several minutes later.

I went to settings > date and time, but 24 hour time and selecting a date format are the only options listed.

I prefer to leave mobile data off when I am at home and can use the wi-fi. Is it necessary to have mobile data turned on, so the phone can receive the time from a cell tower, or is there a way I can set an internal clock?

Android :: Best Time Saving Application

Nov 4, 2010

an away-message app called Siesta Text. (this msg ain't spam by the way! i'm truly psyched on the thing). anyhow, this thing sends auto-replies to anyone who calls or sends you texts (if you have it on). my buddy at AOL said he was using a similar one for a while, but Siesta was way cleaner + easier. also, apparently the fact that you can program them to repeat for up to a year is a big deal (?)

i just switched from iPhone to Droid and downloaded it yesterday. have had it for exactly 1 day and it's literally changing my life. anyhow, thought anyone who's interested in saving time (and not feeling the burden of having to respond immediately to everyone) would enjoy it. also, by the looks of their site, they ain't got one for iPhone, so screw you again Apple! again, i JUST joined this board and am probably way late to the party, but check it out!

Android :: Date And Time Parsing - With SimpleDateFormat

Nov 6, 2010

I have a strange problem when parsing a ISO8601 date and time with SimpleDateFormat.

The relevant code is:

CODE:........

For input I'm giving it a string

2010-09-06T15:30:00+02:00

And as a return I get a Date object with date set to 6th of January 2010 with time of 13:30 and timezone of GMT+00:00.

I also tried using "2010-09-06T15:30:00+0200" with same results.

Confusing thing is, that the date set is partially correct, just the month is set wrongly.

The issue is shown on Android 1.6 and Android 2.2.

Android :: How To Determine APK Install Date / Time?

Sep 15, 2009

By any means, programmatically can I get the install date & time of the already installed apps on the android device. The ApplicationInfo doesn't provide this info. While digging through the /data folder through the DDMS perspective, I saw the installed apk's do contains the Date & time of when it was installed, but the sad part is that this /data folder is not accessible on the device programmatically.

when you got your phone set up JUST perfect, then blam-o something happens and you have to do a factory wipe of your phone, eliminating all your perfectly placed settings. wouldn't it be nice if there was an app that you could run to STORE all your settings, on your sd card, then if/when you have to do a wipe, OR get a new phone (of the same model) you can run this app and bingo bango, all your settings are just how they were before?

I know I can use android.text.format.DateFormat.getDateFormat() to format my dates, and android.text.format.DateFormat.getTimeFormat to format my times, but how do I format a datetime? Similar to the getDateTimeInstance method from java.text.DateFormat. I'm currently just concatenating the result of both the getDateFormat and getTimeFormat's formatters, but I don't know which way around the user prefers to have their dates and times shown.

Android :: Exact Time / Date On Calls / Texts On Ally?

Nov 21, 2010

I couldn't find a thread that addressed this, sorry if it's been asked before!Here is my question: Is there a way to display the EXACT time of a call or text on the Ally and not just have it say 'yesterday' or '2 hours ago', etc. I can't find it in any settings and I can't seem to find an app for it. With my job I have to fill out a very detailed field report requiring exact times I spoke with someone, did something, etc. and I used to use my text messages as a way to keep record of this. If there is a way to do this it could make my life much easier!Disclaimer: After reading several posts here I see that I'm pretty technologically impaired in the span of droid users, so go on and treat me like I don't understand you're computer lingo because you're probably right. No offense will be taken!
