General :: Determine Current Time Is Between Two Other Time Objects?

Dec 28, 2012

How can I determine if the current time is between two other time objects?

For example: current: 15:23, startTime: 22:00, endTime: 06:00. So the current time is not between this two other times, but this "23:47" is.

*I don't care about the date, only the time

I tried to do it like this:


Time startTime = getStartTime();
Time endTime = getEndTime();
Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
Time now = new Time(c.getTimeInMillis());


but it dosen't work well. their aren't any errors but it just dosen't work.

To be more precise the problem is that 15:35.after(22:00) return true... and I don't know why. I think that the problem is something with the dates but I don't know what

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.

Android : Way To Determine Programmatically / Install Time For Droid App?

Jun 27, 2010

Is there any way to determine programmatically the time at which an Android application was installed? I don't see anything in PackageInfo, etc.

To clarify, App A is installed at Time X. At some later time, Time Y, App B is installed. Is there any way App B can know when App A was installed? The link indicates that reading the modify time on the source dir of the App is sufficient. Is this really correct? Why?

General :: Two Versions Of One App Installed At Same Time?

Jan 12, 2011

I want to know how to install two versions of one same application at the same time.

As a matter of fact, I want to install Opera Mini 4.2 China Version and Opera Mini 4.2 Internaional Version at the time. But...Since Opera Mini 5 makes it difficult to describe the question, here takes HelloWorld.apk as an example.

Well, there are two versions of the application "HelloWorld": 1.0 and 1.1. (This is just an example)

I have installed HelloWorld 1.0 on my phone, and when I try to install HelloWorld 1.1, the 1.0 version will be replaced. But...I want to have both of them installed on my phone. That is to say, there will be two "HelloWorld" icons in the app drawer.

I use APKTool to extract the into some "text" files, including an AndroidManifest.xml and a lot of *.smali files. In the AndroidManifest.xml, I saw this:

<manifest package="" versionCode="100" versionName="1.0">

I changed the value "" to "". Then I re-build the apk file and transferred it to my phone.

I installed the modified package, it was successfully installed and I see two "HelloWorld" icons in my app drawer!

I try to launch the HelloWorld 1.0, it succeeds.
I try to launch the HelloWorld 1.1, it FCs immediately.

Well, this is my situation. How can I make both of them launch-able in my phone? Is it possible? What should I modify apart from "package" filed in AndroidManifest.xml?

Android :: Way To Determine When App Is Being Finalized

Mar 21, 2010

I posted a question yesterday about determining when an app is being finalized vs destroyed for screen orientation change. Thanks to the answers I received I was able to resolve my problem with the screen orientation change. However, I am still running into a roadblock.
This app I am working on logs into a website with an HttpClient. As long as the app remains in memory the HttpClient will retain the cookies from logging in. However, once it is killed, it would need to log in again.
My question: How can I determine when the app is being killed from memory so I can set a boolean to false telling the app it has been removed from memory so the next time it starts it will read this and determine is must log in again? Or is it possible to serialize an HttpClient and put that in the savedInstanceState bundle? May extract the cookies from the client and put those in the savedInstanceState bundle? Is there something I'm completely missing here maybe?

Android :: Way To Determine User Identity

Oct 12, 2010

I'm looking for a way to determine user identity so I can globally track game scores off phone.IMEI provides identity of the phone - not effective if phone is on- traded or upgraded by individual. USIM provides identity of phone carrier subscriber - assumes device is phone, and currently has a SIM card.I'd like to be able to provide continuity as a user upgrades to a new device. And I dislike being forced to create an account on each global scoring system, so I don't want to force that on my users. And my end user experience with OpenFeint leaves me disinclined to use it.It doesn't need to be bullet proof. But it does need to be hassle free for my users.Is there any other identifier on an Android device that I can use to link data more cleanly with the current owner? And how would I get hold of that identifier? I'm thinking something like the user's Google account .. or similar

Android :: How To Determine If Impossible To Get GPS Fix Location?

Jan 18, 2010

For example, I am inside a building and I want to get my location with the accuracy of 0.75 (Criteria.ACCURACY_FINE) and this will use the gps if my gps is on. Since I am inside a building, gps won't work. How can I determine if it is really impossible to get a gps fix location?

Is onLocationChanged(Location arg0) will be called even though no gps fix location was received when using LocationListener? Is it possible to use a timeout in requesting gps location so that I can shift to network as the location provider if i can't get any location?

Android :: Best Way To Determine If There Is Internet Connection Is Available

Nov 11, 2010

i have this android application that requires to load data from a remote server via the internet. this update-functionaliy obviously requires the device to not only be connected to some kind of network, but also to the is want to schedule the update-service to some date and when it starts, it should determine whether it actually CAN reach the target server or not. therefore, a simple "is the device connected to wifi?" does not suffice, as the device may be connected to a wireless network that does not offer internet access. something like a PING is required.whats the easiest / best way to determine, if there is an internet connection is available i.e. server is reachable?

Android : Determine If One Of My Activities Is In The Foreground

Feb 22, 2010

I have implemented a BroadcastReceiver which is triggered by the AlarmManager. The AlarmManager is initialized on BOOT_COMPLETED. So i have to declare the receiver in the manifest.

My problem is that i want the BroadcastReceiver only to do something when none of my own activities are in the foreground (aka the user is not interacting with my application). I pull information from a remote server and don't want to notify the user if he is currently in my application anyways.

So far i have not managed to find a way to determine if my application is in the foreground. Is there a way to do such thing? The ActivityManager tells me if my application is running but not whether it is in the foreground.

Android :: GetFromLocationName Always Throws IOException First Time - But Is Successful Second Time With Same Input

May 29, 2009

My calls to getFromLocationName() always fail the "first" time I start my app. I catch the IOException which has reason:

Unable to parse response from server

Then I make a second call and it succeeds. Once things are "awake" all future calls to getFromLocationName() succeed, it's just that first one, and there is a ton of latency.

I haven't run this on a device yet, just in the emulator. This seems like a network problem, but it is so reproducible I'm thinking I'm not initializing something properly. I'm using Android SDK 1.1.

Android :: Time To First Screen - Boot Up And Application Start Time?

at the moment I am thinking about a new app and need some information to decide whether to develop on Android or an alternative OS. I am particularly interested in "time to first screen", "boot-up time", "time to first Audio" and "app-start" (can be any from the android market or even one of the pre-installed ones) time? Does anyone know a source or perhaps measured those numbers?
