Android : Roadmap For HTML5 Features In WebKit For Droid?

May 14, 2010

I recently tried out the applicationCache / offline web apps on Android 2.1's WebKit and unfortunately it does not work exactly like on a webkit on the iPhone. I was wondering how I can easily see what features should be implemented and if there is something like a roadmap?

Does that information somewhere exist?

Android :: WebView And HTML5 Features?

Oct 9, 2009

I am experimenting with Androids WebView[1] and its HTML5 features. I have written a little webpage with does the features detection like described here:

And now I see (I am on a SDK1.6 Emulator) that the LocalStorage, the WebWorkers and Offline Web Applications are not supported!

Does anyone know when these features will be supported? Or does anyone know the exact version (or build) of the webkit engine, that is used in Android 1.6?

Android :: HTML5 Geolocation Features ?

Mar 11, 2010

I'm trying to use the HTML5 Geolocation features found in Android 2.0. However, it does not work in the browser or a WebView. I've tested in the emulator and on multiple devices. The code I have works in multiple other browsers that support the spec. Has anyone gotten this to work?

Android :: List Of HTML5 Supported Features?

Oct 14, 2010

Is there any list which HTML5 features the WebView supports and which not? I am interested mainly in: 1) localStorage/sessionStorage 2) offline manifest 3) web sockets 4) web workers. Prior there was lack of those features (, but in Android 2.1, first two should be supported, but I am not sure about 3 and 4. Is there any list of supported features or we have to test it on our own?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Android Roadmap Leaked - No Froyo?

Sep 12, 2010

Original article:

We have been sent what is believed to be the Android roadmap for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 family. It is in German and originates from last week's IFA show in Berlin. We can't verify whether it is real or not, but it appears legit to us. The roadmap highlights three major firmware releases: Android 1.6x, Android 2.1 and Android 2.1x. It shows that the Android 2.1 update for the Xperia X10 will get 720p video recording with continuous autofocus. HTML5 will also be adopted along with 5 homescreens and a social phonebook (facebook/twitter integration with your contacts). The document also points to a revised menu.

For the X10 mini, X10 mini pro and X8 the 2.1 update will bring with it a slight change in the four-corner navigation along with Bluetooth 2.1. These mobiles will also get the social phonebook and HTML5 adoption. Following this, there will then be the Android 2.1x update that will bring Sony Ericsson's revamped UX platform to Timescape and Mediascape along with more languages. Unfortunately, the roadmap for all handsets stops at 2.1x so I wonder whether we'll ever see Android 2.2 (Froyo) on the X10."

Update: According to forum member steinii1488 of the Android 2.1 update is expected in October/November (this could be a regional thing as SE UK have promised an update by the end of Q3). He goes on to say that the Android 2.1x update will fall in December 2010/January 2011. This means that if SE is planning a Froyo update for the Xperia X10, it won't fall in 2010.

Android :: Roadmap To Development - Lesson Plan For Starting From The Ground Up?

Mar 27, 2010

I've done a little research, and am interested in developing for Android. I've never programmed before, and have no idea how to go from zero experience to developing for a mobile device. My interest is in eventually making some sort of 2d game.

Is there a lesson plan for starting from the ground up? I would think one would need to learn the Java language to start. Looking at the Sun website, it's a bit daunting. Is there a book, specifically, that would wrap up this knowledge in a bit of a directed lesson plan?

I'm not sure if opengl-es is what would be required for 2d games. I've done a little research on this, and it's even far more daunting than Java itself. I can't even begin to figure out where to start with even just opengl, sans -es. My best guess would be that I need further knowledge in Java to continue with this, but even still, is it possible to learn concurrently with Java?

Android :: How I Can Disable Any Webkit Resizing In Droid?

Feb 7, 2010

I have a question regarding the meta viewport declaration in HTML pages. Please tell me if this is not the correct group to post to. I have been doing quite a few iphone specific websites and I always use: <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width; minimum- scale=1.0; initial-scale=1.0; maximum-scale=1.0; user-scalable=no;" /> Now I tried a site that is using that declaration in the android emulator with a 854 x 480 resolution. Even with the declaration above its scaling graphics and text. I would assume that I have 854 x 480 at my disposal. Can somebody explain how I can disable any resizing? Never had any of those issues in the 1.x Android OS devices and iPhone OS.

Android : Address Parsing In Droid Webkit?

Jul 6, 2010

When my site renders in WebKit on Android, addresses are parsed and an OnClick intent is assigned to them, but this behavior gets in the way of javascript I want to act when the text is clicked. Is it because my site uses MicroFormats for the address? Is there a way to disable this on the browser, so no automated parsing occurs?

Android :: Rectangular Box Around Link In Browser / Exact Code For This In Droid-webkit

I could display the box around the URL link, but if my URL link spans over more than one line, then my code shows the one rectangle on 1 line.

Can anyone please give me some pointer on this ? I could not able to find out exact code for this in android-webkit code.

Android :: Turn Off All Droid ProGuard Features Except Obfuscation?

Oct 1, 2010

Google is suggesting that developers might want to obfuscate byte code:

I followed Google's instructions to get an obfuscated Android app that, at first glance, seemed to work. But there were some strange bugs introduced that are not in the un-obfuscated app. I kept turning off ProGuard options to get to this configuration:


Still the bugs are there. Is there anything else I can turn off to get only pure obfuscation? Obfuscation would be nice, but I am willing to turn off ProGuard's other features.

Android :: WebKit Capabilities

Sep 2, 2009

Android platform and actually mostly interested in the browser. I created in hopes of developing a web-based cross-device application framework — but I'm running into a lot of issues with Android. Does anyone know of any good resources which describe the features/implementation of WebKit on Android? At first glance, it appears it doesn't support HTML5, nor certain -webkit CSS3 extensions like gradients or transitions. Does support certain other WebKit features like opacity, etc.

Most of my searches are coming up futile, because I end up seeing generic info about Android having WebKit, or technical pieces specific to embedding WebKit in native apps — but no good documentation on general WebKit features available. Again, I'm new to the platform, so I apologize if this information is in the clear...

Android :: WebView And HTML5 - Video

Sep 28, 2010

I'm piecing together a cheapo app that amongst other things "frames" some of our websites... Pretty simple with the WebViewClient... until I hit the video.

The video is done as HTML5 elements, and these work fine and dandy on Chrome, iPhones, and now that we fixed the encoding issues it works great on Android... in the native browser.

Now the rub: WebView doesn't like it. At all. I can click on the poster image, and nothing happens.

Googling, I found which is close, but seems to be based on a 'link' (as in a href...) instead of a video element. (onDownloadListener does not appear to get invoked on video elements...)

I also see references to overriding onShowCustomView, but that seems to not get called on video elements... nor does shouldOverrideUrlLoading..

I would rather not get into "pull xml from the server, reformat it in the app".. by keeping the story layout on the server, I can control the content a bit better without forcing people to keep updating an app. So if I can convince WebView to handle tags like the native browser, that would be best.

Android :: HTML5 ApplicationCache.update()

Feb 25, 2010

The HTML5 applicationCache in the 2.x browser is working well except for one problem:

when you force a cache update in JavaScript (window.applicationCache.update()) then it doesn't go out to the web to check the manifest it just throws the "checking" and then the "noupdate" events.

I imagine that eventually it actually checks the manifest online, but the update() is supposed to force it. any ideas on how to force an update or how old the manifest needs to be before it checks the web again?
