Android :: Memory Limit 16 MB Per Process Or Application?

Aug 5, 2010

Is android's memory 16MB limit per Process or Application? If the limit is by process, I can make some services remote. That means the service will be in different processes, and the limit will be 16 x N.

Android :: Tell How Close Activity Is To Reaching Its Memory Limit

Oct 15, 2010

I'm writing a graphic design application for Android where the user can add several images to a document, where each image is stored as a Bitmap object. Each bitmap has roughly a dimension of 800x400 pixels and uses ARGB8888 pixel format (i.e. ~1.5Mb each).

I'm aware that most of the first generation Android devices have a 16Mb heap limit and this limit is 24Mb and larger for newer phones. I'm also aware that bitmap memory is allocated externally, but I'm confused and what the implications of this is.

My question is: How can I tell at runtime when adding a new Bitmap will get me too close to the memory limit?

Before someone suggests "don't use that much memory", I know that one option I have is to limit how many Bitmaps the user can create such that I know this limit is safe for the most basic Android phones. However, I'd like for phones with a bigger memory limit to support more bitmaps and/or bigger bitmaps.

I know to check for OutOfMemory exceptions when allocating bitmaps. However, there will be some situations where I've only got just enough memory left to allocate one more bitmap. After this point, the whole application will be unstable because even allocating small things like strings could cause an OutOfMemory exception. This is something I want to avoid.

I'm not sure how to define "too close to the memory limit", but I suspect something like "don't allocate more than half of your available memory to bitmaps" would work OK as my other data structures I store in memory are small in comparison.

HTC Desire :: Reached Limit On Internal Memory / How To Free Up Space?

Jun 9, 2010

I have pretty much reached my limit on internal space, but while looks at my apps list on which to delete because I don't use I found only two. I was wondering what will happen if I clear data on the contacts storage i.e. will I loose my contacts, and with the facebook. Is there a way of clearing the data not uninstalling apps if so what data does it clear?

Android : Tool To Figure Out Which Process Is Responsible For Occupying Memory?

Jun 17, 2010

Java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: bitmap size exceeds VM budget I am getting this message in my log. As I investigated and found out while loading contact image this error comes.I checked size of the image file and it was normal so came to a conclusion that other processes filling up the memory and hence at the time this image is being loaded ,VM running low of memory.

My question is that, is there any tool to figure out which process is responsible for occupying memory so that we can look into the process for the exact reason.

Android :: Need Speed Limit Application

Apr 5, 2010

I need fewer speeding tickets. I've tried voting in local elections but that doesn't seem to help. So I'm left to looking at applications that can help me keep my speed in check.

I really like this application for iPhone, but it doesn't seem to have an Android port. It seems to be exactly what I'm looking for. It has a database of speed limits and notifies you when your phone's GPS reports you have exceeded those limits. The database is user-updated so it should be fairly accurate and current. It also has a really classy GUI.

Is there anything currently in the Android market that can help me? I've tried Trapster, but it doesn't have the functions I'm looking for. It also was pretty annoying as it constantly went off for every potential copper hiding place.

Android :: Limit To Size Of Application In Marketplace?

Mar 18, 2010

That there wasn't a limit to the size of an application that could be downloaded over the air (OTA) but I wonder if a limit, like that imposed by the Apple App Store (20MB) exists now that the Nexus one is running on AT&T's 3G network as of today.

Android :: Speed Limit Application By Gps Location?

Oct 29, 2010

I've been looking for a good application that has a real time speed limit for roads, as I live in a place where they don't exactly like to put up many speed limit signs. Does anyone know of one that is GPS enabled, and tracks the speed limit by your gps location? This may be impossible, but I am just wondering if anyone has stumbled across an application similar to this. Does not need to be fancy, just work.

Android :: Limit To Number Of Touch Inputs In Application?

Jul 26, 2010

I have a small test app on Android that is meant to test tracking multitouch input, but I am only ever getting two touches at the same time on my Evo. Does anyone know if this is a limitation to Android or the hardware? By the way, here's my test class so you can try it out yourself.

import java.util.HashMap; import android.content.Context;
import; import;
import; import;
import android.view.MotionEvent; import android.view.View;
public class PressureView extends View {
private HashMap<Integer, Spot> mSpots = new HashMap<Integer, Spot>();
private final int[] mColors; private final Paint mPaint;
public PressureView(Context context) { super(context);
mPaint = new Paint(); mPaint.setStyle(Style.FILL);
mColors = new int[]{Color.RED, Color.GREEN, Color.BLUE, Color.YELLOW, Color.MAGENTA};

} @Override protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) { super.onDraw(canvas);
canvas.drawColor(Color.WHITE); for(int id : mSpots.keySet()) {
Spot spot = mSpots.get(id); mPaint.setColor(spot.Color);
canvas.drawCircle(spot.X, spot.Y, spot.Pressure*500, mPaint);
} } @Override public boolean onTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) {
System.out.println("***" + event.getPointerCount() + " Pointers");
for(int i = 0; i < event.getPointerCount(); i++) { int id = event.getPointerId(i);
Spot spot = null; if(mSpots.containsKey(id)) { spot = mSpots.get(id);
} else { spot = new Spot(); spot.Color = mColors[mSpots.size()]; }

if(event.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_UP) spot.Pressure = 0;
else spot.Pressure = event.getPressure(id);
spot.X = event.getX(id); spot.Y = event.getY(id);
mSpots.put(id, spot); } invalidate(); return true;
} private class Spot { public float X, Y, Pressure; public int Color; } }

Android :: Background Process Not Clearing Memory On Android?

Aug 29, 2010

I have an application that has a widget. In the main application, I have an ad framework (cannot be edited due to license) that is accumulatively leaking approx 1MB every time I exit the application. It appears one of its threads are running in the background (unnecessarily) that will keep its process and these threads will be created again when I launch the application. Is it a good idea to call:

In the onDestroy method of my main activity? Also, would doing this kill my widget's service as well?

Android :: Application Service Ever Run In Different Process?

Apr 26, 2010

If an application begins a Service via bindService or startService, will this Service object ever run from a process different from that of the application? I ask because many Android example projects begin a service and communicate to them using IPC which seems wholly unnecessary considering that, according to the Android Service documentation, "... services, like other application objects, run in the main thread of their hosting process." IPC, AIDL, and the IBinder interface only seem useful if connecting to a Service started by an application other than your own. Is this a correct or fair understanding?

Android :: Cannot Start Parent Application / Process Is Bad

May 12, 2009

As an exercise I attempted to add an AppWidgetProvider-derived class to one of our existing Android applications. When the widget is created and appears on the home screen, the output from adb logcat notes: W/ActivityManager(58): Unable to launch app com.mycompany.myapp/ 10042 for broadcast Intent { action=android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_ENABLED comp= {com.mycompany.myapp/com.mycompany.myapp.MyAppWidgetProvider} }: process is bad

This output comes from around line 10814 in ActivityManagerService (looking at cupcake on git). This is running on an ADP 1.5, FWIW. The same AppWidget code, once separated from the main application's project and put into its own simple project, runs as expected, so I know my manifest entries/XML/Java are all as they should be. Has anyone else run into this, or perhaps can the Android team comment on what aspect of my application might be preventing the AM from starting up the process when the widget is added to the home screen?

Android :: Application Process Has Stopped Unexpectedly

Apr 22, 2009

For some reason I can't explain, when my app runs, I will on occasion get the following error message: "The application xxxxxxxx (process xxxxxx) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again". When I debug my code, it seems to break at random places that doesn't make sense. On top of that I tried to surround the entire code with a try/catch block just to try to catch the exception, but it doesn't work either. I'm suspecting it's the OS that is producing this error message but I don't know why. As far as my code goes, if there were exceptions caused by it, it would've been caught by the try/catch block. Can someone shed some light here?

Android :: Process Died After Exiting Application

Jan 14, 2010

I am seeing a curious behaviour in my app. I have a widget that gets updated by a service every # hours, when the service finishes I stop it, using "stopService(new Intent(this, MyService.class));", the widget if pressed launches an Activity. Now it gets interesting, while im on the activity everyting works fine, then when I exit the app(by the back key or a button I designed which simply calls this.finish() ) the ActivityManager would tell me that my process has died, I do not see any error of any kind, just that the process has died.

Why I am seeing that message and what does it mean exactly? That is having a side effect on my service regarding static variables getting set to default. Could my code be the cause of this? Is there any way to know that your process has died? I have tested my app on a HTC Hero running 1.5, it always works well on the emulator and I never get that message. I know android kills processes to reclaim memory but Im always careful to close apps heavy on resources.

Android :: Process And Application Lifecycles Are Separate?

Mar 15, 2010

Being interested in Android development and still in the experimentation phase - there's something I haven't been able to grasp. As far as I've been able to understand, the process lifecycle and application lifecycles are separate and as such, it would be possible for the application to still to exist, even if it's process has been killed. So I guess my question would be, in what scenario could this occur and how is the application accessible if the containing process has been killed?

Android :: One Process - Two Live Application Objects?

Oct 31, 2010

In a comment on an epic StackOverflow question-and-answer, a gentleman who I will call Tim has outlined a scenario he says he is running into, one I have some difficulty believing. Reading somewhat between the lines, the flow would appear to be this:

1. User taps on an activity icon in the launcher 2. Process starts up 3. Application object is put in that process -- and a custom Application object loads an NDK library which initializes some statics/singletons 4. User uses application 5. User abandons application (e.g., HOME) 6. Later, user returns to application, before the first process is killed or recycled for use with another app 7. A second Application object is created, in the same process, before the first Application object is called with onTerminate()

This screws things up for Tim's app -- apparently, it does not deal with pre-initialized statics/singletons well. They were presumably counting on onTerminate() to let them clean up the NDK space. As a result, they are relying upon killProcess() (somehow...unclear under what conditions they might call this) to force their own process to go away, so their statics get cleaned up. Step #7 is what confuses me. I can see a new Application object being created, but only if the first Application object were terminated. I don't see any NDK-related bugs out on that seem to match this complaint, though in principle it might cause problems for non-NDK apps as well. Has anyone encountered a new Application object being created in a process before the old one is terminated?

Android :: Froyo Camera Application Process Dies When Lock Screen Happens

Sep 15, 2010

Camera application process dies and restarts again when device is Locked/End Call Key is clicked. Steps to reproduce: 1) Launch Camera application. 2) Click on End Call key(it acts as lock screen when there is no active call) or wait till device is locked. 3) Camera application is paused and surfaceDestroyed callback is not being called. 4) Camera process has died and restarted again. I would like to know why Camera process has died after onPause is being called and restarted again when device is put to Lock state. For all key events like BackKey,HomeKey and Accept Key it is working fine.
