Android :: Programmatically Determine If Application Is MarketPlace Version

Oct 7, 2010

I have an application that's offered in and outside of the MarketPlace.Is there a way of determining from within the code where the application came from? I've got a few indirect methods

1) I could simply infer from whether they have "Allow installation of non-Market applications" ticked.

2) Or I could just make separate builds and make it explicit in the code.

General :: How To Determine Exact Version Of Faked Android OS

Oct 22, 2013

I just bought a new new Android smartphone, and electronically and mechanically, it works very well, and gives a nice appearance. It was sold as having Android 4.1.1, and About Phone -> Android version displays 4.1.2. So in this version range, we are talking about Jelly Bean, right?

Software version in the 'About Phone' begins with, '6820_2.3.5_' but whether or not this identifies the OS version, or means something else ...

I'd like to know if there's any way of telling exactly which version of Gingerbread my phone is running? This is useful in deciding which apps should or should not, be installed.

The phone has been rooted, has busybox and a terminal application installed, how to identify the OS that requires this capability.

HTC Droid Eris :: Incorrect Application Info Associations / What To Try

Jun 9, 2010

I first noticed a problem when trying to launch the Weather app on my 2.1 equipped Droid Eris. Had it for about a week now. The app crashes every time. Things I have tried:

- hard reset of the phone
- remove battery
- reset Sense to defaults
- cleared application data/cache from weather apps

I was going to try this last one again when I noticed something very very weird. When I got to Manage Applications, and click on "Weather" it actually takes me to the application info for Quickoffice! It now seems like all the weather apps (and some others) are messed up. If I click on "HTC Weather Wallpaper" it takes me to application info for Visual Voicemail. " HTC Weather sync provider" gives me app info for Clock Widget. If I click on Clock Widget, I get info for Mabilo Wallpapers (app from store). What the heck is goin on here....

Any suggestions on what to try? I have searched Google and the various forums extensively and cant find any instances of other people having this issue.

Android :: Determine If A Specific Activity In An Application Can Be Launched

Jun 9, 2010

Applications can have any number of launchable activities. I know how to get the list of these activities via PackageManager.

Is there a way to determine which activities can be launched via startActivity?

For example, the Documents To Go app has different activities that will start Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF, etc... I am able to launch all o these just fine.

However, it also contains some activities that I am not able to launch with startActivity... If I attempt to do this I get a SecurityException.

I want to be able to determine which activities I can safely launch and which I cannot so I only present the user with a list of activities that I can safely launch from within my application...

Android :: How Can We Determine Battery Usage Statistics Per Application?

Nov 4, 2010

I am having trouble finding class or API in android documentation which can help me get battery usage statistics per application. I have read PowerManager class and BatteryManager but they are of no use .Though I can find applications like PowerTutor that do give you battery usage statistics per application, so I think its technically possible?

Android :: Application / Marketplace Version

Nov 21, 2009

I have a Motorola Droid and my wife has the HTC Droid Eris. I've noticed that one of the apps that I have installed (24 Clock by Talionis Software) I cannot find when I use the Eris to search the marketplace. I used the "search" function, I scanned the QR code, I searched "pub:"talionis software"". Nothing, nada, zip.Is this because the Eris is running Android 1.5 vs 2.0 on the Moto, or is something more sinister afoot? Is there a difference in the marketplace software?She asked (told) me to put the "24" digital clock on her phone, too, and so far I'm coming up empty.Do some apps not play well with different Android versions?

Android :: 1.5 Version - Develop Bluetooth Application

May 3, 2009

Can someone explain the current situation with bluetooth from a developer point? I take it the latest 1.5 version still does not have development of bluetooth apps? If not, when is this going to happen? It's been in J2ME for years! I saw some post about it being available via compiling the framework, what does this mean? Does this mean an app can be done that uses bluetooth or is this just for developemt only? I am only just starting to look at Android, so totally new to this. However, if I can't do bluetooth SPP connections then it's no use to me for what I want, so I'll not bother for now.

Android :: Debug Version Of Application On Phone?

Apr 10, 2009

I made a mistake and I still had the debug version of my app (from Eclipse) on my phone when I tried to install a signed version. The install failed, but I could no longer access the debug version in Manage Applications to un install it. I was at work and couldn't reinstall the debug version in order to uni nstall, so I did a complete factory reset of my phone (using My Backup Pro to backup stuff). Now I can install my app. However, now I notice upon reboot that my app loses all of its data from shared preferences. I'm not entirely sure that it's not a problem of mine somehow, but does anyone know why it is doing that and how I can fix it? I may have left the debug gable. true on in the version I'm trying to test. Would that cause this problem?

Android : IStudiez Pro Alternative - Version Of This Application

Sep 10, 2010

Just wanted to know if anyone could point me in the direction of a decent Android version of this application.

I know you can kinda mimic it's functionality a little bit by simply using the built in calendar, but the idea of an integrated timetable, previous grades, grade calculator, assignment deadlines (a to do list essentially) and all the other stuff it's got look really nice. The nice thing about it is that it's all in one application I think. I've had a look around but so far haven't found anything... any ideas?

Android : Recommended Way Of Creating A Demo Version Of Application

Apr 23, 2010

What is the recommended way of creating a demo version for an application. Basically, the demo version will be fully functional, but will be limited to running it 25 times. My worry is that if the user uninstalls and reinstalls, the count will be reset. I thought about writing a data file to the SD Card with the count of executions (hoping that would persist after uninstall), but I do not want to add that permission if I can avoid it. Any suggestions on how to have some type of demo flag persist after an uninstall?

Android :: Share A Database Between A Free And Paid Version Of An Application

Oct 2, 2009

I have an application for which I am planning to release both a free and a paid version. I found that this will require the two versions of the application to each have different package names.

When a user upgrades from the free version to the paid version, the paid version needs to be able to access the database built by the free version. I am trying to understand the best way to make sure that upgrade does not disrupt the user's data.

I have read that the AndroidManifest file setting for shared user id should allow both applications to access the same data. I don't need the applications to both be running simultaneously, as I expect the user will uninstall the free version after upgrading to the paid version. However I need to make sure that if possible the user's data is not lost and is still accessible and usable by the paid version of the application.

I have read about a problem with the shared user id where uninstalling one application will cause the other shared application to stop working because its permissions get deleted, (see details at http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=2773 ) Apparently this issue is fixed in doughnut, but since all the currently deployed android phones do not have doughnut yet, this still seems like a significant problem.

In addition to the database information, I would also like to preserve the user's default shared preferences settings after the upgrade. However the default shared preference settings are not as critical as the data in the database.

Android :: Releasing Demo Application From Paid Version - Fork Code?

Jun 4, 2009

We have a paid app in the market place, we would like to release a demo of the paid app. I was hoping we could just recompile w/ the same package name, but apparently that does not work. I have tried manually changing package name etc, but it is a chore, and it seems that several things that automatically happen in eclipse cause more harm than good when renaming the package name. Which brings me to my next question. If having a new package name is the only way to accomplish this. Is there an easy way to fork the paid app, where keeping the changes synchronized is easier? Some kind of Source Control?

Android :: How To Handle Application Upgrades From Free To Paid Version / While Preserving Any Data

Jun 10, 2010

I want to have a free version and a premium version of the same application. When people buy the application, I want them to be able to "upgrade" without losing their data, i.e. the premium version should install over the free version.I want to use the same code base and just switch a setting to build the premium version.
Andoid Market does not let me convert a free app to a paid app, so the trivial option is not available.I am curious if someone has tried this successfully. How does Android Market identify an application - will it think that the premium version is a different app and just install it in parallel?
