Android :: Most Recommended WiFi On / Off Toggle Application?

Nov 14, 2009

I want to download a WiFi Toggle On/Off App on my Sprint HTC Hero. I assume this will save battery power. Correct? This will save battery power because when it's toggled off, it won't waste power searching for available WiFi networks when I don't need to be looking for them. Correct? I can go into Menu, Settings (so many steps) to change my settings to turn this on and off. So, there's Apps on the Android Market that can be downloaded to have a WiFi - On and Off - toggle switch. I went to the Android Market and there were so many!

What is the most recommended - simple - practical - no bells and whistles - most reliable - absolutely best that nobody beats it - WiFi - On and Off - Toggle switch? I see this one from Curvefish is quite popular: WiFi OnOff v1.2.1 Application for Android | Tools
Is this one the most recommended?

Android :: Preferences Use Explanation - Recommended Best Practice?

Oct 6, 2010

Some of my app's preferences could use some more explanation than the scarce space available for the summary. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be support from the system, like an optional help button that shows a longer text. How do you solve this problem? The first thing that comes to mind is an additional custom "preference" like "more information to above entry" that opens an AlertDialog with the help text, but that's not really nice for both user (two entries for the same preference) and the developer (manual work to do in Preference Activity). A bit nicer for the user, but way more work for the developer would be custom dialogs for each preference with more text and/or a help button. Is there a better solution or even an officially recommended best practice?

Android :: Recommended Good Applications For Phone?

Jul 8, 2010

So, after three long years with my Samsung Alias, which I bought before it was popular enough to get the fancy Alias brand name, I am upgrading to the Droid X. This is my first Android phone and so I am wondering about what the "essential" Android apps are. What finally sold me on switching to Android was the Endomondo sports tracking app. I was contemplating getting a smartphone and a Garmin Edge bike computer, but when I saw a post about Endomondo, I axed the plans on the Garmin and decided to pull the trigger on the DX. In case this helps people in their advice-giving, I am a cyclist racing in college right now, I have an almost unhealthy interest in everything gadgets/computers/video games (and I suspect I'm not the only forum member like this ), I love sports (hockey, lacrosse, football, basketball, baseball, cycling, wakeboarding, skiing, surfing, etc.), and I love movies and TV (especially Entourage and Californication). So, with all of that in mind, who's got some good apps that I simply must have once I get my shiny new piece of hardware?

HTC Magic :: Recommended Stock ROM?

Aug 11, 2009

What ROM are you using, and why? Would you recommend it? I personally am using the HoFo community ROM, which is basically the stock Rogers ROM just rooted and has some small optimizations. I like it because it is fast and stable because I believe the core wasn't changed, and it is rooted.

Android :: Recommended Encryption Combination For Digital Signatures

Jul 3, 2010

I have finally - after days and days of agony - figured out that I need two forms of encryption for my Digital Signatures Project. The first will will be symmetric (AES) and will encrypt the license data and the second will be a asymmetric (RSA) an will encrypt the symmetric key. Can someone give me pointers on the best methods to use for Android.

For the public/private keys I am using: "RSA/ECB/PKCS1Padding"(I head ECB is bad so what should I use?, what about the PKCS1Padding - shoudl I be using PKCS5Padding?)

For the symetric keys I will probably use: "AES/?/?" (What mode and padding should I use?)

The provider: "BC"

RSA Keysize: 1024 (I tried 2048 but it didn't work for some reason)

AES Keysize: ?

Android : Recommended Way Of Creating A Demo Version Of Application

Apr 23, 2010

What is the recommended way of creating a demo version for an application. Basically, the demo version will be fully functional, but will be limited to running it 25 times. My worry is that if the user uninstalls and reinstalls, the count will be reset. I thought about writing a data file to the SD Card with the count of executions (hoping that would persist after uninstall), but I do not want to add that permission if I can avoid it. Any suggestions on how to have some type of demo flag persist after an uninstall?

Motorola Droid :: Most Recommended / Vanilla ROM?

May 27, 2010

Is there a recommendation for a 'relatively straight forward' ROM that's not over the top but provides for the overclock while active/under clock while sleeping? I am considering rooting, but that's only the tip of the iceburg. Picking a decent ROM is next - and I really don't want to grab anything hairy.

Android :: What Intent Flags Are Recommended For Activities Started By Notifications

Nov 8, 2010

I am running into a peculiar issue with an app which has multiple Activities.I have a screen manager class that is bound to a service.The service polls a server for data.The screen manager starts Activity A, B, or C, based on the data.It will also allow the user to select to display the other Activities or it may swap out an Activity automatically based on new data from the service.Currently all the navigation works great and if the user presses Home, the applicable Activity comes back to the foreground when the user presses the apps icon from the Android home screen or the recently run apps list.I then had to implement a new feature to display an icon and notification.I first implemented this by only displaying the notification when the Activities were no longer visible by setting it in each Activities on Pause.Worked like a charm and gave the user a third option to redisplay the app after Home button press.However if the data from the server (when the app is not displayed) causes the screen manager to update the Activity to be displayed I have issues. I think my Activity stack is getting screwed up.I have since tried a little different model where the screen Manager handles the notifications and always displays the notification, updating it with a new Intent whenever an Activity is updated, but its still not cutting it.

When the app is minimized and the data changes I can see the screen manager call the startActivityForResult on the new Activity and it seems like Android knows we are minimized and does not display the Activity. I can then also the screen Manager call to finish on the old top Activity.Each Activity currently has the flag set to singleTop in the manifest and FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP in the code. When the data hasn't changed on the server, I pull the app back up using any of the above I get what I expect and the Activity's onNewIntent is called. However when the data has changed and the user calls up the app via the notification it calls the Activities onCreate. The Activity does come up and runs, but then pressing back takes me to what seems like another instance of the same Activity instead of exiting. I just took a closer look at my logcat and I see 2 calls to the Activity's onResume, but then no doubles after that.

Motorola Droid :: Recommended SMS Counter Application

Apr 19, 2010

So my wife and I went over on our text messaging (I'm glad she went over too, or I'd gotten an earfull. Now she can't say too much). Anyway, any recommendations for an SMS counter app? I dunno if Handcent has one built in, but I'd like one that retains all data between changing/updating ROMs. I have the 250 messaging package. Text messaging is ridiculous in price.

HTC Droid Eris :: Recommended ROMs / Overclocking?

Jul 17, 2010

I'm an Incredible user, but my girlfriend has an Eris. I'm tired of hearing her bitch about the speed of the phone, and how it occasionally locks up on her, so (now that the easy root method for leaker's is out) I'm about to root her phone and install a custom ROM. Now, I have a few questions for you folks since I'm not familiar with the Eris community at all (and I have some time constraints since she needs her phone back).
1. I'm looking for a ROM recommendation. What I'm looking for is something extremely stable and fast. I don't need any bells/whistles. She doesn't use tethering, at all but it must have GPS/Camera/Blue tooth/MMS working. Don't really care if it has Sense, but if there is something fast/stable WITH sense, that would not be a bad thing. Most important things are speed and bug-free (or damn close). Froyo would be nice (obviously).
2. I am unfamiliar with overclocking. I come from a phone where you overclock by installing a hydra kernel, so I don't know how this works on the Eris. It sounds like I will have to manually set up overclocking in Set CPU, and I'm not familiar with the application. If anyone can give me some tips on how to do this, or recommended settings that would be AWESOME. One thing to keep in mind is that this is not my phone, so I won't have time to tinker with trial and error (in other words I won't be able to start testing at 850mhz and work my way down until it's stable).I know this is a lot to ask, but I'm hoping some of you guys will be able to help me out given the circumstances. Thanks in advance.

HTC Incredible :: Charge Phone For Recommended 8 Hours Before Use?

Jun 8, 2010

My phone is set to arrive tomorrow, and all I want to know are two things:
1. Did you charge the phone for the 8 hours (or until full) before you used it, or did you get to playing with it right away?
2. What were your results, in terms of battery life? It seems like every phone manufacturer says to do this, but I'm wondering how much of a difference it actually makes.

HTC Incredible :: Recommended Calendar And Agenda Widget

May 19, 2010

While the stock calendar widget is great, it is limited in the size selection.I am looking for a good calendar widget that looks nice, provides multiple size options, and syncs with a task application like Astrid. Currently I use the stock calendar widget (that takes up a full screen) and have an Astrid widget on another screen.It would be nice to have a widget (preferably free) that does both (or it can sync with a different task management app if someone has a better one than Astrid).I know about the Pure Calendar widget and that seems to be the highest recommended one, but are there any others?

Sprint HTC : What Are Recommended Settings For Autokiller For Incredible

Aug 19, 2010

Simple thread with a simple question(s). What are the recommended settings for autokiller for the Incredible? Does it even really help if you're using froyo and have access to all 512mb of ram?

Edit: Well, I just found an answer to the second question. I didn't realize the "free" memory is immediately used up by cache. More free memory = larger cache. So, that said, I would still like to know what the "recommended settings" would be.
