Android :: How To Launch Market Intent In 'Give Feedback' Mode?

May 23, 2010

I have just written a game for the Android market and would like to remind my customers to leave feeback on the market for the application (especially the demo version.) Is there any way to launch the market intent in a mode that will take the user to the feedback / comments section of the page?I already use this approach for linking my demo to the paid app.

Is there a best practice that any Android devs out there might know of?Additionally, is there any way to track referalls from my demo app so that I can try to calculate some kind of a conversion rate? (i.e. how effective the demo app is at generating sales.)

Android :: Package Name For Droid Apps To Use Intent To Launch Market App From Web?

May 7, 2010

I'm creating a mobile website that will include a page from which people can download relevant apps that we recommend. I've found instructions for creating the links to launch the Market but this assumes that you are the developer of the app in question and know the exact package name.

Is there any way to get the package name, other than just contacting the developers and asking?

Also, it turns out that those instructions don't really work for creating web hyperlinks. They only give you a URI to reference in a string of Java code in another Android app. Our site is in Drupal, so Java is not going to work.

For the iPhone, I found easy instructions for getting the URL/link style I need from the iTunes store, so I'm looking for info like that.

Android :: Launch Camera App With An Intent?

Oct 7, 2010

I can't find any intent which opens the camera. The closest I've found is ACTION_CAMERA_BUTTON but that breaks if the phone has no hardware button for the camera.

Android :: Launch Messaging App Via Intent?

Jan 13, 2010

What is the recommended way to launch the messaging app (for sending an MMS message) via an intent? The following code works on my HTC Magic ... code..

... but it first launches the Resolver activity (com.android.internal.app.ResolverActivity), prompting the user to select the appropriate app (Email, Gmail, Messaging, Picasa). The user has to select Messaging before proceeding.

The only way I've found to bypass the resolver is to explicity set the desired component on the intent before starting the activity as follows:

intent.setClassName("com.android.mms", "com.android.mms.ui.ComposeMessageActivity");

However, I'm guessing this approach will not work on devices that have a customised UI, like the HTC Hero. Can someone confirm/deny?

I'm also struggling to find official documentation for the "address" and "sms_body" fields that can be supplied as extra data as per the above example. Is it expected that these will be supported by the default messaging app in future SDK versions and in customised UIs (like HTC's Sense UI)?

Android :: Way To Launch Calendar App With Generic Intent

Sep 13, 2009

There's seemingly no way to launch the calendar app in a generic way. I've written a widget which allows you to launch the calendar. I use the following Intent:

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setClassName("com.android.calendar", "com.android.calendar.LaunchActivity"); startActivity(i);

However, this doesn't work on the Hero because HTC has apparently replaced the calendar in their Sense UI. I'm looking for a "standard" way to reach the calendar. I'd like for something like this to be standardized:

Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); i.setType("text/calendar"); startActivity(i);

Does anyone think it would be worth trying to add this to the source? It seems like there is a missing chunk of standards around calendar events and/or iCal / vCal support. Does anyone know why?

Android :: Create An Intent To Launch Any E-mail App?

Jun 30, 2010

I have found various topics here and elsewhere on creating an intent for sending e-mail and that seems to be pretty straightforward. I'm looking for an intent to just launch any e-mail client the user might have.

Here is the code I've seen for sending an e-mail (posted just for reference, this doesn't serve my needs as I don't want to send a new message):code...

The code above works but isn't flexible in that a user might not be using Gmail but the other built-in e-mail application or a 3rd party e-mail app. I'm looking for an intent that would bring up the chooser in this case so the user can decide which app to launch to read e-mail.

Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

Android :: Launch Intent Viewer To Display Image From Url

Jun 1, 2010

I have the url of an image. What i need to do is launch the default image viewer for images using an intent. But it doesn't work. If I do not specify the type of data, the intent launches the browser since the data is a url. It works basically (since you can see the image on the browser) but what I would like is to have the gallery display the image for me.I can also download the image into a Bitmap but I would still not know how to display the Bitmap using the gallery (if that's even possible).I tried saving the bitmap to the cache and then launch the viewer on that file but it doesn't work. Can you spot any mistakes on my code? (The Utilities class is a class i wrote.

Android :: WiFi Enabled AND Active - Launch An Intent

Nov 28, 2009

This is what I would like to do: => IF WiFi is enabled AND active, launch an intent (in fact it's a WebView that gets its content=>the instructions of my app on the web) => IF NOT, then I would launch another intent so that I don't show a WebView with "Web page not available ... The Web page at http://www.mywebsite.com might be temporarily down or it may have moved ..."

I tought initially to use

if(wifi.isWifiEnabled())

but that does not say if the Wifi connection is ACTIVE or not. It says only that the user has turned the switch on. The device may or may not be connected... Is this correct ?

Then I tried to use :........................

Android :: Launch The WebBrowser With An Intent - Containing Url - And Then Close It Automatically

I'm launching a webbrowser via an intent, which allows my app user to login to Google Docs in a 2-legged oauth dance. This works fine, and the browser callback comes to my app with the right authentication string.

I just want to be able to kill that browser window once we are done - having it sitting there is confusing and messy.

How can I kill a browser window I started up?

Android :: Start An Intent To Launch An App To Background In Droid

May 16, 2010

I'm using Wikitude API 1.1 as an AR viewer in my application. The problem with Wikitude, if I haven't launched the actual Wikitude application since the phone's bootup, I will get a NullPointerException everytime I start my own application.

So I figure if I can start my app first and them check if Wikitude is installed and or running. If it's not installed, go to market n download. If it's not running, then we should run it straight to background so that my app doesn't loose its focuscode...

The part I block commented is the intent to start Wikitude. But I always failed in restricting Wikitude to background. Any help?

With the new features I am about to release in the latest version, and with paid apps now possible, I intend to split the app into a free lite/trial version and a paid full version.I am aware that I must create a new app with a new signature for the full version b/c I can't change the current free app to a paid one.I don't mind this, but,is there any way I can transfer the thousands of feedback and ratings I have accumulated so far to the paid version even though it will have a totally new signature?

Android :: Correct Intent To Launch Gallery / Video Camera

Jul 28, 2009

My application has buttons to launch gallery and video camera apps but the below code only seems to work on phones with the standard Cupcake build:
// For Gallery Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setClassName("com.android.camera", "com.android.camera.GalleryPicker");
intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK); mContext.startActivity(intent);
// For Video Camera Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setClassName("com.android.camera", "com.android.camera.VideoCamera"); intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK); mContext.startActivity(intent);

On rooted / non-cupcake phones, I get this error:
android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit activity class {com.android.camera/com.android.camera.VideoCamera};
have you declared this activity in your AndroidManifest.xml? at android.app.Instrumentation.checkStartActivityResult (Instrumentation.java:1480) at android.app.Instrumentation.execStartActivity(Instrumentation.java: 1454) at android.app.Activity.startActivityForResult(Activity.java:2656) at android.app.Activity.startActivity(Activity.java:2700)
