Android : Direct Access To GEARS Geolocation Without Going Through The Browser Interface

Jul 15, 2009

information on direct access to GEARS geolocation functions from an Android application. To date, I have not found any. geolocation includes three Android-specific public Java classes, AndroidGpsLocationProvider, AndroidRadioLocationProvider, and AndroidWifiLocationProvider. The fact that they are Android-specific and that they are public lead me to conclude that I should be able to use these classes in my application. However, not surprisingly, when I try to access these classes, my application fails (see log below) because, among other things, I have no way to correctly identify nativeObject in the java classes. At the very least, I would like to understand the purpose of the three Android-specific public Java classes, and how we should use them.

Android :: Use Gears For Geolocation In Webview? (for 1.5 Phones)

Aug 24, 2010

I was able to setup geolocation accessibility in my webview for any android phone running 2.0 and up easily. However I really need to get this feature working on 1.5 and 1.6 phones as well. From what i've read it seems like this feature used to be accomplished with "Gears" and apparently there is a way to use addJavascriptInterface to implement this. I can't seem to find any examples anywhere. I'm actually suprised there isn't more information on this or at least easy to find information.

Android :: Direct Database Access Instead Of Content Providers

Sep 2, 2010

Just found out that I don't need content providers if I don't need to share data with other applications. But since the examples I've seen all use content providers, I'm not sure how to proceed without them and populate activities with data derived from accessing my application's database directly.

Android : Content Provider Vs Direct Database Access - Transaction Management

Aug 7, 2010

I understand, at least on paper, the basic difference between the Content Provider and just directly accessing the SQLiteDatabase. I have a functioning prototype for my application, and currently it is just directly hitting the database. I don't really have any experience using the Content Provider pattern, but I have found out that I will need to share some data with another application.

I will only be sharing about 2 out of a dozen or so tables, so I was wondering if I should be just completely redoing the data layer to follow the Content Provider pattern, or just expose only those tables via a Content Provider for the sake of the other application and still directly access the database in the primary application.

One of the issues I ran into with my prototype was that I have some fairly complex transactions, and the code I wrote to get that working is not designed particularly well and isn't reusable at all. As I add more functionality to this app, I'm going to need a better designed data access layer, before I set off writing my own, does anyone know of any good resources with design patterns for this type of thing already? Also, if I need to go the Content Provider route, am I going to have solid control over the database transactions?

App Requires Direct Phone Access And Can Make Calls Without Asking First

Apr 8, 2013

I've just published an app to Google Play. It is an app that allows people (mostly tourists) in my area to easily find businesses around them. One functionality that my app offers is to make a phone call to these companies by tapping a button in the app, including emergency numbers.

Google Play says that the app requires "direct phone access, it can call phone numbers without your intervention, which can lead to a high phone bill, but not emergency numbers". This doesn't completely fit my intention.

My app would work just fine if it had to ask the user every time it wanted to make a call, and it doesn't call anything when no buttons are tapped, plus I DO want the app to be able to call emergency numbers (with the user's consent off course).

General :: Direct Access To Time Zone Function?

Oct 16, 2013

I've used XDA many times before, normally for specific questions on ARHD ROMs.

I work on a cruise ship and we're continually crossing time zones. Currently, to alter the time zone on my (rooted) HTC OneX, I need to pull down the notifications tray, select settings, scroll down and select date and time, then select time zone. I can't use the Auto function, as the network time on the ship (satellite) is only available over Wi-Fi, for which I have to pay an exorbitant rate.

I'm looking for an app that will allow me one-tap access to changing the time zone. 'Time Zone Widget Light' almost does the job, as a tap on the widget scrolls through pre-set time zones, but this only allows me to step forward, and sometimes I need to go backwards as well (sadly our ship itineraries refuse to follow pre-set time zones, although I'm working on it!)

Any app, or perhaps a toolkit that lets me drill down to sub-layers of the android settings menu and create a short-cut?
