Android :: Is There A Contacts App With More Options Than Default

Apr 26, 2010

All I really want to do is hide the contact pictures to the side of the names, I don't have pictures for about 80% of my contacts and just seeing the gray box over and over again when scrolling through is annoying.

This wouldn't be as much of a problem if the facebook app actually synced profile pictures, but no luck there either

Motorola Droid X :: Facebook Contacts Linked To Phone Contacts Missing Options

Jul 17, 2010

I got my DroidX on 7/15 and on 7/16 linked all my phone contacts who have facebook to a facebook contact via social networking. I kike how the phone sets the picture, I like that in the contact entry it shows me thier status on facebook. What I don't like is that when I open up a contac that is both a phone contact and a facebook contact and I tap the facebook icon on the contact screen I get 3 options (view profile, write on wall, and poke). If I open up a contact that is only facebook and tap that same Icon I get 4 options (view profile, message, write on wall, and poke). Is there some reason linking the facebook contact to a phone contact needs to remove that option? I'd like to be able to send a facebook message from the phone to any contact as easy as I can send a text message.

Android :: Implement Image From Sdcard Options Like Default Viewer / Open It On Certain Folder?

Oct 15, 2010

Ok I have been trying to figure this out for a while. I have an application that needs to read images from a folder created by the application on the sdcard. I have no idea what the names of the files are because the user specifies the names of the files. I need to read the images from the folder and make something like the default image viewer, where you can share them delete them and things like that. Im thinking read them into a grid view first but 1) cant figure out how to dynamically read them from a folder 2) how would I implement the image options like the default viewer? If there was a way to open the default viewer on a certain folder that would help.
Anyways any input would be amazing been working on it for a while.

Motorola Droid :: Options To See Facebook Contacts Wall?

Nov 15, 2009

I like how when I enter a contact, if it finds that person on my Facebook it will add that info, and give me the options to see their wall, post a msg, etc.

However, I deleted a contact and had to re-add them. Now it will not re-add their Facebook info. This doesnt happen to all of them, just ones I've deleted and re-added. Any ideas on how to add it?

Nexus :: Dialing Options / Scroll Contacts To Find Correct Person?

Feb 23, 2010

Having come from an HTC Hero I am struggling with my dialing options? Previously if I wanted to dial Martin I could just tap 627 on the keypad and the option was there.

Now with the Nexus one do I really have to scroll through all my contacts to find the correct person? Surely this is very laborious and slow.

Making a speed dial seems a bit silly as well as there are so many people in my contact list.

So any suggestions?

Motorola Droid :: Default Email - Contacts

Dec 23, 2009

Just realized that when I go into "Contacts" and select to email a contact that it is pulling up GMail rather than my Corporate Email client. All of my contacts are synced from my Outlook through my corporate Exchange server so I need to be sending the email from my corporate email. I've gone into corporate email and selected to make this the "default" email client, but it is still pulling up GMail when I select to email from Contacts. I also have the "Corporate Contacts" app that I downloaded from the Market. It syncs with Exchange as well, but it is also pulling up GMail when I select to email from there as well. Is there another default switch somewhere that I'm missing?

Samsung Captivate :: Set Default Name For Linked Facebook Contacts?

Aug 12, 2010

I have my Google contacts linked to their applicable Facebook contacts. I don't like that, when the names are different, it defaults to listing the contact under Facebook name. That means that it is no longer possible to search by Google contact name from within the phone application.

Anyone know if there is some way to override this?

HTC Droid Eris :: Change Default Action In Favorite Contacts?

Jan 2, 2010

I'm using an Eris at the moment, and favorites that were populated by default shows a card and prompts me for the desired action. I realize that selecting the name below the icon allows me to choose different actions, but I have very poor accuracy in trying to tap on just the name, so for contacts that I've added that I'm forced to choose a default action, it's very difficult for me to choose an alternate action.

The instruction manual says to "press and hold" the contact to change the default action, but that selects the entire widget to move or discard.

Does anyone know how to change the default action to prompt me each time I open a specific favorite contact?

I've seen this question for the Hero too, but with no answers. Posted on the HTC forum, but that's looking rather un-promising.

General :: Enabling Default Prefix For All Telephone Numbers In Contacts

Nov 18, 2011

My Android based (Gingerbread) smartphone has a number of contacts with several phone numbers (home, work, mobile etc.) for each. When I call a contact the call goes through the mobile operator and I'm charged for the call by him.

I also have an an Asterisk-based PBX with a FCT (Fixed Cellular Terminal, or GSM Dialer or Fixed Wireless Terminal) connected to a VOIP provider that charges much less. If I prefix a phone number in Contacts with a fixed string (containing the mobile number to the SIM card in the FCT, plus some pause, plus the password to access the PBX's dial tone plus a bit more of pause) it works fine.

What I'm looking for is a way to have this standard prefix string stored somewhere and it be automatically padded at the beginning of each number dialed. Ideally, when dialing a contact I would be asked if I wanted to call with or without the standard prefix. Is that doable?

Motorola Droid :: Default Web Browser - When Click Links In Non-default Browser It Doesn't Send Links To Default One

Dec 15, 2009

I have installed Dolphin and like it, and I've made it my default browser, which is great. However, it is not only the system default, but it even opens links I click on in the Android provided browser (sometimes I both open). On your computer, when you click links in your non-default browser it doesn't send the links to the default one, and it shouldn't on this OS, either. Any ideas how to keep Dolphin as my system default browser, but not have it open links I click on in the Android web browser?

HTC EVO 4G :: Changing Default Action Apps Back To Default?

Jun 7, 2010

Wasn't sure exactly how to ask this, but here we go So, for example, I installed "Dialer One", a dialer replacement.So whenever I hit the "Phone" button, it asks how I want to complete the action. Using Dialer One, or Phone. And it gives me the option to "Use by default for this action".So, lets say I want to use Dialer One by default, but then I change my mind. How do I set it back to the default Phone.Obviously, this question applies to more than just the phone app. After writing all that I think the simple way to ask my question is- I really just want to know how to undo the 'use by default for this action' choices I may make in the future.

Android :: Options For My Backup Pro?

Sep 7, 2010

Since this is a popular program, I thought someone would be able to answer a few quick questions on this before I purchase it:

1) Is there the option to backup to the SD card (which I am assuming is where you would want your backups to go, so that you do not lose them in case you need to do a hard reset?

2) Is there an option to back up all data onto your desktop, so that if you lose your phone and need to buy a new one, all the data can be put back onto the new Droid?

3) Are there any things that you CANNOT back up with this program? Will all the apps that you downloaded from the Market get saved as well as all the data that you entered into these programs? (like will all the notes that you entered into AK Notepad be saved, as well as the program itself?)

Android :: No ADT Plugin Options Available

Nov 21, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and installed Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) for Java Developers along with the Android SDK. When I add the following URL into the "work With" field under Eclipse's Install New Software menu:
https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse

No plugins appear between the "Work With" and "Options" sections. I understand I'm supposed to be able to select "Developer Tools". I get nothing. I've tried linking to http vice https. Also, downloading the zip from the android dev site itself yields the same result. When I run "Check for Updates", it comes back saying nothing to update. I also ran "Test Connection" for the above URL and it comes back positive.

General :: Default Launcher Won't Stay Default?

Oct 28, 2011

First of all I have a Sprint Epic Touch 4G AKA Samsung Galaxy 2 S and not rooted,

I keep getting prompt to select which launcher(launcher or twlauncher) when I press the home button. I would select set as default and then select twlauncher. This would work fine and I could do what I want and the home button acts normally. BUT if I long press the home button to bring up task manager and a list of recent apps, it would break the default setting on twlauncher. I could go to setting and manage app and see that the default on twlauncher is now cleared even though I did not manually clear it. I tried checking set as default and then select launcher. It too won't stick AFTER I long press the home button.

Long story short, I downloaded several launchers from the market and none of them will stay set as default IF I long press the home button. It breaks the default every time and ask me to select the launcher to use when I press the home button. Now this would be great if I could just delete all the other launcher and have only one but I can't delete the stock launcher or twlauncher.

So the first time this happen, I was driving down the road using telenav when I see the prompt to select which launcher(something that I've never seen after using the phone for 2 weeks).

1. Start task manager and kill all active app and clear memory from RAM

2. Clear defaults from manage application....twlauncher

3. Click home button, click set as default and then launcher instead of twlauncher- still does not stick after long press home button.

4. Manage application...twlauncher CLEAR DATA (sure enough my neatly organized homepage and apps folder was reset to stock).

5. Pull battery

6. Cycle power on and off.

7. Gave up after 24 hours and factory reset the phone.

8. Went on my merry way and reinstall apps and customizing home page and apps pages and so on.

9. In hindsight, I should have long press home button every time I installed a new app to see which one will break the default.

10. Phone works fine for 24 hours and then it mysteriously acts up again. It ask me to choose which launcher again.

11. Went back to googling and tried the following which did not work:

a. clear media hub data and default

b. installed Sprint "clean" ID and then later deleting it.

c. installed go launcher and see if it will stick

d. installed launcher pro

e. installed home switcher

f. I don't have Qik or some child lock apps

g. search XDA and found about 15 threads and tried everything in those thread short of using Titanium to freeze one launcher.

Right now I just won't long press the home button to bring up task manager or recent apps and everything will work just fine. Minor annoyance but I guess I can live with it until the ICS update.

Android :: Set Options Menu Up - Only 2 Buttons Per Row?

Aug 4, 2010

I was trying to set up my options menu so that there would be 2 buttons on the 1st and 2nd row and then 1 button on the 3rd row. Here is the code I was trying to use but I'm guessing groupID argument isn't what I thought it was.

menu.add(1, MENU_NAME, 1, "by Name");
menu.add(1, MENU_NUMBER, 2, "by Number");
menu.add(2, MENU_POSITION, 1, "by Position");
menu.add(2, MENU_COLLEGE, 2, "by College");
menu.add(3, MENU_UPDATE, 1, "Update Roster");

Maybe this is solved somehow with the XML Layout but I'm not really good with the layouts ;( So I managed to not get too far that way either.
