Android :: How To Detect Homescreen?

Jun 5, 2009

I've asked "how to detect home screen" before. I'm still searching. I noticed when I press "home" button on Android emulator, I got this statement in catalog so I went to ActivityManager to see if I can find a clue there. Here is my findings: 1. I can not instantiate ActivityManager because it's constructor is not public, and it's not a singleton 2. it has a function called: getRunningAppProcesses sounds promising -- would it give me all the running processes? 3. since I can not instantiate ActivityManager I tried to use one of the derived class: RunningAppProcesseInfo to see if I can use it's parent methods: getRunningAppProcesses. Nope.

Android :: Developing An Homescreen

Aug 12, 2010

I am working on an app that has a homescreen. This homescreen should behave like the android homescreen where you can switch between several views by flinging your finger over the touch screen.

The solution is easy. I have 3 view instances, right, left and current view. I get this instances from the viewflipper that I initialized earlier. Since I have a HTC G1 my sreen is 320 px in width and 480 px in height.

Imagine you capture the down value of a action down motion event when you touch the screen. Then you move your finger and the screen should move in exactly the same way so you have to recalculate the view's position. It works for me so far but I am facing a strange problem. When you touch the right view without moving you finger but keeping it on the screen for less then a second the view disappears and shows the left view.

Here is my code:..........................

I think such a Homescreen for your own app could be a interestion UI element.

Android :: Homescreen Saver

Aug 19, 2010

So I have App Monster, which is GREAT to redownload all apps after a hard reset or device switch, but setting up all my icons and widgets etc. on the various homescreen is a tedious task.

Any homescreen savers out there? I'm imaging a scenario where I could manually redownload the apps (using App Monster this is a piece of cake), and then activate the homescreen saver app to instantly populate my homescreens just as they were prior to a hard reset.

Android :: DROID - More Homescreen Panels

Dec 2, 2009

I am sick of dealing with only 3 panels on my DROID! I have searched around the internet and have found no results. I was told to use a home screen replacement, which I tried, and that did not work. Does anyone know of a simple app that has JUST the functionality to add more home screen panels to stock Android (2.0), and if not is there a developer out there that could make this?

Is there a way to know if there is an instance of your widget currently on the homescreen? I always end up using variables that change state with onUpdate() and onDeleted() calls, but that obviously that isn't effective in every scenario.

Android :: Way To Get Upcoming Appointments Onto Homescreen?

May 25, 2010

I'm coming from Windows Mobile (Touch Pro2) and I'm going to miss having my upcoming appointments on the home screen. Is it possible to have this set up? I'm only seeing icons/widgets in all the reviews. The phone I'll be getting will be the EVO 4G. Also, how well does Google Voice implement into Android, is it possible to have an option to either call from my regular cell number or from google voice without going through an app or the website?

Android :: ViewFlipper - Homescreen Animation

Apr 28, 2010

I am trying to use a ViewFlipper and make it act like the home screen(The layout will move with your finger). Check out this for an example. I want to do this with a ViewFlipper that only contains two children so the opposite view should be shown on either side of the current view depending on which way the user moves their finger. This code works but only for 1 direction at a time. This is in onTouchEvent.


Which ever of the bottom two lines I put last that direction will work correctly but the other will not.

Here is how I set the leftView and rightView:


Is it going to be possible to set it up so that the same view is shown on both sides of the current view?

Android : IPhone Like Bookmarks On Homescreen?

Jun 11, 2010

Sorry if this has been answered before but I couldn't see it anywhere.

I know a lot of websites now use an "apple-touch-icon" file to allow iPhone users to put a logo'd bookmark onto their homescreen. Is there a way to do similar on Android (specifically HTC Sense).

Whenever I try I just get the Sense bookmark icon, with a tiny favicon image in the bottom corner of it.

Android : Return To Homescreen After Sending SMS

Nov 26, 2010

I've searched for quite some time over this forum and also using Google, so I hope I'm not duplicating a thread.

Does anyone know if there is any way of returning to the homescreen after sending an SMS? I have a Desire Z and whilst it's only a case of pressing the home key, it's a small gripe as I have to flip the keyboard back in and press home.

I'm using the default SMS application and I'm not too fussed on external SMS apps as I don't like the graphics (I've tried Handcent and the default Android skin still isn't quite the same), plus the only real reason I wanted them was to change the LED colour, but that doesn't work either. Anyways, if anyone has some ideas please feel free to let me know.

Android :: Adw.launcher - Quit Default Homescreen

Nov 22, 2010

Hi everyone, so I installed the ADW.launcher homescreen replacement app and love it. The only problem is that I have to force quit my default homescreen (in this case it's called "LG Homescreen")--task-killers won't work and I have to go into the application settings to force it. Fine. But every time I reboot my phone it runs along side of adw and I want only adw when the phone boots. I already set adw as my default homscreen, no change.

Android :: Calender Windows Not Working On HomeScreen?

Apr 29, 2010

I just bought the Motorola Milestone for about a week. Initially when I added the Calender as a Widget to my home screen, there is a little open window showing my next appointment(s) for the day or next day. However, I accidentally trashed it and when I tried to add it back to my home screen again, I am unable to get the same and the Calender merely appears as a little icon. Is there any particular setting that I may have missed out?

Android :: TouchWiz Launcher - Cannot Set Default Homescreen

Jun 28, 2010

ALL THANKS GOES TO rolle3K: TouchWiz30_rolle.apk ... at - Free File Hosting, Free Image Hosting, Free Music Hosting, Free Video Hosting, ... (I got it from bais on MoDaCo). It is an apk and it has been tested and proven to work on FroYo and �clair (not sure about Cupcake/Donut). Install through adb or a file explorer. I tried it out, not too bad. Still prefer LauncherPro but I can show this off if an iPhone fanboy talks about how great iPhone UI is. Couple of notes: -To edit bottom dock, go into menu, press edit, this allows you to move icons around between dock and menu. -To edit order of homescreens or # of homescreens, go home, press menu and then edit. Couple of flaws: -Cannot set your own icons for bottom dock (you can change which apps are there but cannot use custom icons). Cannot set a default homescreen.

Android :: Writing Custom Homescreen / Launcher

Jun 11, 2009

I'm interesting in writing a custom homescreen and launcher. By launcher, i mean the list of apps that appear when you push the menu button from the homescreen.

Are these two different native applications (homescreen and launcher)? Or is the menu that pops up part of the homescreen application.

Further, It there some Intent I could declare in my app that would instruct android to load my launcher / homescreen app instead of the native one, or would this require me to reimplement from source and build a custom platform?
