Android :: New Application Listing Order In Market Search

Sep 24, 2010

Before today, when entering a search term into the Market app, the results at the top of the search would all be exact matches of that search term against the app name. For example, type "translate" and the user will see all the apps called "translate" before the "Google Translate" result (which is by far the most downloaded translate app). Now, this no longer happens. If you type "translate" the first result is "Google Translate" (and no preference is given to exact matches).

Note: posted on this forum partly because hardly anyone reads Android Discuss, and partly because developers need to know how their apps are being prioritized in app search results).

Android :: Market Search And Top Free / Paid Result Order?

Dec 17, 2009

What determines the market search result order?

It doesn't seem to be downloads or rating.

The Top free/paid listing does not make much sense either...

Android :: How To Link Browser To Search Application In Market?

Mar 3, 2009

Using G1, go to http://www.myspace.com. Notice the site is able to detect the user agent from the browser and provides a link to search the MySpace application on the Android Marketplace. Google's http://code.google.com/android/devel/sign-publish.html# publishing provides options to search, e.g. http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:<package>. This does not work for me.

Android :: Market Listing My App As Exactly Twice Size Of APK I Uploaded / Why Is So?

Feb 26, 2009

For Wuzzle, the signed trial APK is 878KB and the signed full game APK is 934KB. I do have copy protection turned on for both and it did say it would increase the space needed. I figured that meant it would add an extra 10KB or something reasonable. They are listed on the market as being 1.71MB and 1.82MB respectively. I didn't think it would literally double the app size!

My other game, Light Racer has a signed APK of 288KB and is posted with no copy protection. It is listed on the market as 289KB, which is correct.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Android : Change One's App Listing On Http://market.droid.com?

Nov 20, 2009

Does anyone know how to change one's app listing on http://market.android.com?

We've updated our Android Market listing via http://market.android.com/publish several times over the last 13 months, putting new screenshots up on multiple occasions and switching categories a long time ago.

Yet the listing at http://market.android.com/free.html#[AppName] is still the same as it was over a year ago when it launched; very old screenshots and the outdated category...

Android :: Listing An Application's Activity And Intent-filters

Jun 10, 2010

I am interested in activating another application's activity. I know from reading the Android SDK that it's probably better to do this with an implicit intent. However, this activity doesn't reside in an application I own, so I don't know the action and category and data flags on the intent-filter.

How can I examine an Android applications metadata like the activity classes and the intent-filters for those activities (if declared in the manifest)?

Android :: Getting Google Order Number Programmatically After App Bought From Market

Nov 20, 2009

As you may know, when you buy an app from the market, an email is sent to you with a "Google order number" (which I believe is 15 digits long), which is specific to this transaction. I was wondering if this number is stored anywhere on your device after you purchase an app, and if it is, is there anything in the API to allow an android app to retrieve this number. If this number cannot be retrieved, is there a similar market transaction code that's retrievable?

General :: Market Fails To Process Order

Jan 27, 2012

When I purchase something from the market, it hangs on authorising payment in the market app. In the meantime the payment is taken from my card, I get an email with receipt for the order, then the market will error with the message "You will receive email when your purchase is resolved". The app then seems to freeze in a state of permanent purchased but not delivered. 24 hours has passed and I can still hit the refund button and process a refund.

This happens both on my Xoom and SGS2 whether purchased from the market on the respective device or from the website. The entries on Google wallet appear to be the same as previous successful purchases just without the delivered/shipped detail on them, and the message this item will be automatically downloaded to your device is absent.

I'm stuck in hospital at the moment and my tablet and phone are all I have, so this really sucks.I have tried multiple payment methods with no success.

HTC Eris : Backup Market Apps In Order To Speed Reload After Flash?

Mar 26, 2010

I'm looking to flash again... right after I loaded all of the market applications that I love onto the phone.

I apologize if this is a trivial question; I'm not yet all that familiar w/ the program management on the android. But what I would like to be able to do is create a directory (be it on the sdcard, my laptop, etc) and store the install files for all of the apps that I install on this phone after every flash. This would save a tremendous amount of time bringing the phone back up to usable status after a flash. And the cat's meow would be if the configurations for these apps could be backup locally as well. Similar to a ~/.name_of_application/ directory on a linux box.

I'm poking around the file system right now, and not finding anything obvious. Would these be the files out of /system/bin?

Android :: Market Search Box Complaint

Nov 19, 2009

using Droid the market search box will bring up previous search list and it drives me nuts that I can't click on one and EDIT it before it just launches.I would prefer it would put it in the box and wait for me to hit search button, giving me a chance to correct or expand on or otherwise edit the chosen previous search text.I really wish it would act like google on the computer where the results page has your search text in a box on the page allowing you to tweak it EASILY. It is hard enough to type on this thing and ANYTHING that would eliminate retyping would be GREAT.I don't see a topic for android suggestions for general improvement (as opposed to app suggestions), so I put this in here.

Android :: Search Market By Using Various Parameters

Feb 18, 2010

This link describes how to search the Android Market for apps using various parameters:
http://developer.android.com/guide/publishing/publishing.html
I'm having a heck of a time figuring out how to format a link for my apps published by my company using this format. For searching by developer name, the doc says to use the following format:
market://search?q=pub:<Developer Name>

It also says it returns exact matches only. My publisher name is "Polyclef Software". I guess I'm wondering why Google can't make a market search feature that searches for substrings in the publisher's name, but aside from that, how am I supposed to format the link? Neither of the following work:
market://search?q=pub:Polyclef Software market://search?q=pub:Polyclef+Software
I've tried a number of variations now and nothing works.

Android :: Uploaded Widget Application / Order Cancellation Reason

Jun 25, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I uploaded one of App which happens to be a widget. But from the time I uploaded it I have seen lots of cancellation. The only reason google gives me is this: You canceled this order. Reason: Other (describe below) Message sent to customer: Cancellation requested from phone.

I cant get heads or tail of it. What should I understand from this? There are no feedback, neither any ratings. Who is "YOU" here? I suppose this is not a programming question but this has raised after a lot of programming. Did anyone else also get something like this from Google and know what it exactly means?

HTC Incredible :: Youtube / Android Market Web Browser Search

For example, if first I type in the word transformers and then click it, it will search youtube or if I am on the android market/internet search for transformers. Next if I went to search for transformers 2, I start typing in the word "transformers" and right away the above word appears, but if I click on it, it goes right to the original search. How can I do it where if I click on it the word transformers will appear but not run youtube video/android market/web browser so I can then type in the number 2.

Android :: Setting Dolphin As Default For Market Search?

Dec 19, 2009

Since I've set Dolphin as my default browser, when I click on a link to search for an app in the market I get a not found error. For instance, there is a link in Documents to Go (the paid key file) that is supposed to take you to the market to download the actual Documents to Go apps when I click on that link it opens the Dolphin browser and then there is a not found error. Before I set Dolphin as the default those types of links would open the market place to the application.

Android :: Redirecting To Market Search URL Doesn't Work

May 19, 2009

To pretty up the URL we have on our site a URL /get/g1. It redirects to our market.android.com/search URL, eg http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:ourappname.

However, going to that link in the G1 browser results in a 404 instead of opening the Market to our app.

Questions: 1. Is this a known issue? 2. Does the browser preprocess links on the page but not intercept them in a redirect?
