Android :: How To OS Upgrades Work - Apps Compatible?

Dec 17, 2009

1. How do OS upgrades work. Can any android device easily upgrade from 1.5 to 1.6 or even 2.1? or are these issued by the manufacturer, thus we have to wait until they're ready?

2. Are android apps compatible with all android devices? I've heard that Archos 5 doesn't support all android apps and the Camangi device has its own app market (Camangi Market - Apps). Would apps from the official android market work on any android device? What's the point of Camangi having it's own app market?

Samsung Moment :: Are There Any Better Apps Or Upgrades For Navigation?

Jan 28, 2010

I just switched from the Palm pre to the samsung moment and love it so far. One thing i dont like though is the navigation, even though they are both sprint navi. the moment is so much slower at getting an adress and routing you to that adress. It wouldnt be that big of a deal for me but like i stated in a different post i am a police officer and came to a new district and am getting to know the area so when a priority job comes out it takes me a while to input the adress and get routed there as with the pre it was pretty much instantanious. I really dont want to go out and buy a stand alone navigation so can any of you guys help me. Are there any better apps or upgrades for the navigation?

Motorola CLIQ :: Most Apps Don't Work - Snake - Doesn't Work Says Its Paused

Dec 8, 2009

I'm trying to determine whether or not my phone is defective, or if this is a current problem with the Cliq.

Of the apps I've downloaded, only a few of them have worked. Of those few that work, some don't work right. Has anyone had problems with these apps crashing on them, or just not working correctly?

- Nice Battery (see description at bottom of: My Ultimate CLIQ settings (so far))
- WeatherBug (kept showing the wrong location, crashed when trying to change location)
- Snake - doesn't work just says its "paused"
- RingDroid - crashes when I select the "Facebook Pop" button
- Layar - screen is rotated 90 degrees at all times

There have been others, but usually I just uninstall them right after discovering it doesn't work right.

Android :: How Udates / Upgrades For Each APP?

Sep 9, 2009

I bought a few apps in the Market and in some cases I noticed that the developers charged for updates. I would like to know if this practice is admitted and fair. I also would like to know if it is possible to have a clear notice about how udates/upgrades FOR EACH APPLICATION are dealt with in terms of charges to your credit card when you buy in the Market. I think this is essential if we want to improve the Market, put some order and make sure you can control what you pay once you establish a relationship with third parties through the Market and eventually guarantee the success of the platform. Are there any rules for developers/sellers in the Market in this respect? Can we read them?

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?

I'm wondering if it is possible for a firmware update to increase the current 15fps video recording. (I believe it's 15fps) Don't get me wrong the quality is watchable, but I'm just wondering if it is potentially possible for the firmwares (or custom) to actually up the framerate a tad?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Appropriate Patches And Upgrades By XDA Developers

Oct 9, 2010

I am forced to open a new topic, as one of the SE member stated to open it to get it answered. Sounds funky, right? I am reading every post that is getting flooded here in the SE Community Talk, and believe me, 95% is about Problems. 4% are expecting to get it fixed sooner or later. 1% are satisfied. With this we can figure out how much customers SE has collected by selling his product. This discussion is only to list the Problem in points and not in summary or paragraph styles. Let SE and other XDA developers look into this and make appropriate patches or upgrades to get it all fixed. We can number the problem in series in Red (spoon feeding SE), so that SE knows what to handle in priority. [once the problem listed is over, let us also list the benefits of SE in Green to make ourselves and SE happy too]

Having said this, let me begin the list I am facing:
1. Low Call Volume
2. Feeble Sound output
3. Poor indoor camera
4. Camera outputs blurs
5. Video outputs blurs
6. No live wallpapers (animating)
7. Latest apps/games not supporting 1.6
8. Picking the call 'always' by swiping is awkard
9. Dialing a number from Contact has become a long process
10. When ear-phone is plugged, ringtone does not ring in earphone
11. Not supporting Java apps (mchek, ICICI Bank)
12. Not supporting paid apps in Market (india)
13. Cant use 'enter' in default messaging (sends it). Using other apps (chomp/ handcent/...) has the option to line break SMS
14. Email signature not possible in default Email app. (need to rely on K9 Mail)
15. Moxier mail lies idle (those who do not have exchange server). Can't even uninstall it.
16. Apps gets installed in phone memory
17. Name gets wrongly geo-tagged

1. Love Timescape
2. Love Mediascape
3. Love big screen
4. Love plenty of apps
5. Fast performance
6. Good browser
7. Good capacitive touch

Android :: IM Apps That Actually Work

Nov 28, 2010

I chat a lot on AIM and Yahoo messenger, so naturally I'd like an IM app for my phone. I use Pidgin on my home PC, but I don't think it's available for Android yet, so I installed Nimbuzz.

Nimbuzz works great, except that whenever the screen goes dark on idle, it disconnects. This is obviously unacceptable, because the screen often goes dark before the reply to my last IM arrives, making the other party think I've "hung up" on them. I decided to try Trillian instead, but it does the same exact thing.

Is there an IM app out there that actually stays connected? It doesn't seem like this should be such a complicated thing!

Android :: GPS Apps Work

Aug 12, 2010

I'm looking into some mileage tracking apps so I can track my mileage at work. There are several on the market that work via gps. Basically you press a button when you start your trip and another button when you end it. My question is about how these apps actually track you. Do they track your location as the crow flies (i.e. they look at your start and end and calculate the distance straight between) or do they calculate based on the actual roads you have to take to get from A to B? I'm wondering if I'd be better off with just an app where I record my miles directly and don't mess with GPS. Can anyone recommend some good mileage tracking apps?

Android :: Do All Apps Work With WiFi Only

Jul 31, 2009

I'm sure this has been answered but all the threads i've read are about using the internet overseas or don't specifically state whether or not all the Apps will work without a data plan through WiFi. I have WiFi access at work/school/home and am going to buy Copilot live so that I have offline maps, so I don't feel the need to get data since it is so expensive. Before I commit to picking up a used G1 I just want to confirm that all apps work without a dataplan as long as i'm connected via WiFi.

Android :: List Of Apps That Only Work In 1.6 And Above

Dec 21, 2009

As Canadian customers of Rogers Wireless are now being screwed out of the 1.6 update for our HTC Magic and Dream, and LG Eve phones, we will not be able to run apps that require version 1.6 or above.

We are trying to help Rogers understand why we need this update, as they seem to be having difficulty wrapping their heads around the idea that these are not just phones, but are rather more like little computers.

Since in many cases we can not even see apps in the market place that aren't supported by our phones, it is difficult to provide Rogers with a concise list, so I am hoping everyone in the forums can help me to compile a list of the apps that ONLY work with 1.6 or above.

For example, I know of the following:

- Google Goggles
- Fresh Face (newest version)

Android :: G1 System UIDs Inconsistent - None Of The Apps Work

Jul 2, 2009

About two days ago my phone started receiving and making all calls as 'unknown'. I decided to wait to go straight to a T-mobile retail store. But today July 2 at 10 am. none of the apps where working, the browser, text messages, none. the phone became crazy I started to receive error messages on the screen. Finally decided to restart the phone, when it turned on again i received the message" g1 system UIDs inconsistent, you need to wipe your data partition or you device will be unstable." it had the I'm feeling lucky button, when pressed, the phone reset itself, most of my apps where gone, but it did not help or fixed anything. Im desperate I love my G1 phone i bought it the next day of the release, it worked great, got my 1.5 update worked fine, 'till now. the problem is where to go for help. If it is an OS problem is it google's fault or T-mobile? I have a flex pay account when i bought the phone. I bought it full price almost $ 500 so to get a new G1 since i am a student i cant afford it. I feel very sad not being able to use it or fix the problem now all my data is gone all my apps, :( i cant even go on the market app to donwload them because i receive the error message of force close.
