Android :: Developing For Devices Other Than Phones?

Feb 22, 2010

I am a student at a technical university in Finland, and Im currently working on a thesis about how suitable Android platform is for multimedia devices other than smartphones or mobile handsets. Different manufacturers have been experimenting with Android for a while now, and have installed the platform onto new types of devices such as mobile internet devices (Archos 5), tablets (Vega), and even e-book readers (Barnes & Noble nook). Almost all of these manufacturers are also welcoming Android developers to create applications to go with their devices. Compared to the number of applications on Android Market, however, the manufacturers are still very much in the beginning stages with this. I�m hoping to have some idea about what Android developer communities are thinking about this invitation, and so decided to post a poll about it on a few Android forums. Are you interested in developing applications for these kinds of devices, with larger screens and different capabilities from an average mobile phone? If it�s not too much trouble, I�d also be interested in hearing a few words about why you think it would be a good or bad idea. How would it be different from developing for phones? What sort of problems or possibilities do you think would rise from it?

Android :: Developing Smartphone App On Which Devices Suggest To Check App?

Aug 18, 2010

Before publishing a new app on the market, on which devices would you suggest to check whether it runs fine or not? What are your experiences? How do you handle this?Are there some empirical values, for example, do applications that run smoothly on a HTC Desire behave similar on all HTC devices? Are there some devices on which the app should definately be checked?I like to picture myself releasing a high quality product instead of throwing some crap on the market. :) But I suppose I am not the only one who cannot buy like 5 or more devices just to ensure that the apps works fine on every kind of device.

Android :: Android Developing For Tablets Harder Than Developing For IPad?

Apr 17, 2010

First of all, I just want to say I am a software developer, but I am not an Android developer. However I usually walk around and think on stuff. AndI've been recently thinking all the news concerning how fragmented Android is getting, with different Android versions and tweaks by different phone manufacturers, and then for developers you have different size formats. An example would be that HTC Tattoo might not be able to run everything that another phone might run, due to different screen formats, etc. And now the Android tablets are coming with different Android versions and different screen sizes, all from 5" to 11". Will this make developing Android applications harder? Apple has it safe here since they manufacturer all devices that run the iPhone OS: the pods, phones and now the pad so they can easily control and make sure not to loose any customers by introducing a new device. When Apple introduced iPad they had to make sure that all the old iPhone applications would work on the iPad. They solved that neatly by saying that iPhone applications will simply be stretched out to the double size and it would fit on the iPad. Unfortunately Android does not have the same luxury to do this. As I said, I am not an Android developer. Just a curious software developer For you guys who work actively in the Android community, does Google have a solution for this? Will you be able to run phone applications on the tablets? Is there a bridge between the devices? Are there any standardizations or will Android development become even more fragmented? you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Developers" group.

Android :: How To Access The Database When Developing On A Phone

May 11, 2010

I am having trouble accessing the database while I am developing on the phone. Whenever I execute

cd /data/data/com.mycompck/databases

then if I try to run ls I get opendir failed, Permission denied

Or whenever I type in:
sqlite3 I get sqlite3: permission denied

What I am doing wrong?

Are there some applications that can help me getting a human view of content resolvers values and/or SQLite databases?

Android :: Simulating A Waiting Voicemail Message

Apr 10, 2010

I am looking for a way to simulate or create a waiting voicemail message. I know there has a question about this that have been on the mailing-list/group here:

In investigating trying to get a voicemail message simulated w/ the AVD Emulator, I tried just setting the incoming mail to "SEND_TO_VOICEMAIL" - but that does not create a message. There is not an indicator that the call was made until you check your call log (which is the expected behavior, so no complaints there).

I have looking through the Android documentation, tutorials/samples, and reference. I cannot find anything talking about creating or bootstrapping a voicemail message (and I haven't seen anything about handling other instances of a "Message Waiting Indicator").

I've looked around on a couple other message forums, like, and haven't seen any examples dealing with voicemail. I have a Safari account and searched in the Android dev books and only find mention of the Intent URI for the Dailer (voicemail:).

If looks like when I'm trying to achieve would be done by creating a Notification and passing it to NotificationManager.notify() as done in this example article:[url]

Would PendingIntent be the Intent that I'm looking for? I'm new to the platform/api, so I'm likely just missing some knowledge on what I'm trying to do is called. I have done a fair bit of looking around, but I've reached a bit where I feel I'm going in circles.

If looks like once I could create/simulate voicemail, then I'd chance need to create a PhoneStateListener with a definition of onMessageWaitingIndicatorChanged() and call TelephonyManager.listen().

If I have missed a place to check or a resource - just point me briefly in that direction.

Android :: Simulating An Operating System Upgrade

Oct 5, 2010

I am having issues with my application when a user gets a system update (for example from 2.1 to 2.2). i am wondering how I can reproduce this experience on a phone (Nexus One). does this involve rooting the phone and then applying a system update? I need the update to look as though it came from the system. In other words, I can't take a full ROM image, because then I think I would lose my application being installed between upgrades.

Android :: Need Simulating Vibration As When Receiving A Call

Feb 19, 2010

So I am trying to simulate that the phone is receiving a call. I have successfully extracted the phones ring tone and played it. Now I want to simulate the vibration. While I can make the phone vibrate, I want to emulate the exact pattern that the phone vibrates with as when it receives a call. Is there some setting or class that I can use to extract this pattern, and also detect if vibration is turned on?

Android :: Trying For Developing Phone Rest Client Applications

Jun 8, 2010

I've watched many of the Google IO talks and one that I'm trying to reproduce is "Developing Android REST client applications"[1]. In this talk Virgil suggests you should not execute your RESTful queries inside a Thread/AsyncTask spawned from your Activity (which I had been doing), instead you should use a more complex architecture that uses a combination of a ContentProvider and a Service. From what I understood the reason for this design was so your data was more persistent between app restarts, and so your queries don't disappear if your Activity starts/stops (e.g on a screen rotation). I buy into both those reasons hence I'm trying to implement this. On the slides[2] page 45 We have an Activity calling a ContentProvider. Now the ContentProvider checks its local database, if the content is not there it sends an Intent to a service which fetches the content, inserts it into the ContentProvider, then the ContentProvider calls back to the Activity (with a ContentObserver) and the Activity can carry on. The question I have is how is this callback setup. The ContentProvider exposes simple methods, query, insert, update, delete which don't seem easy to adapt to a callback interface. It could be implemented by a Cursor which is designed to block, but that could be problematic as you don't' want to block your UI Thread. I'd appreciate if anyone could make this clearer to me, or show me some code. I'm hoping the Twitter app will be open sourced soon which apparently uses this architecture.

Android :: Started Developing For Android Didn't Buy The Device Phone

Aug 14, 2010

I am a newcomer to android development. I created a image puzzle app named "Sexy Image Puzzle" It is a simple jigsaw puzzle. As I have just started developing for android, I didn't buy the dev phone yet. I tested the application in Emulator. I was planning to create similar puzzles for Cars too. But the app has too less downloads so far. Could anyone use this app and let me know, what is going wrong? It is a free application, so there is no payment involved. I just want to know some feedbacks, what is going wrong. This is a small help, I need from you guys, till the time I buy my dev phone (probably starting september)

Nov 1, 2009

I am developing my am on mac (10.5.8), on eclipse and SDK 1.6 and a Vodafone HTC Magic Everything was working ok up to a few days ago. I can not see my device on adb devices. I also got a Sony Xperia and I can not see it on the list either. I upgraded the phone software (the HTC) to 1.6 a few days ago. Maybe that is what caused the change, but I could not be sure.

Android :: Get Started With Developing For Android Without An Android Phone?

Jul 29, 2009

More or less as it says on the tin. Before I even contemplate downloading the SDK, I was wondering if there was any way of testing Android apps that I'd write without an Android phone available to me? I'm unsure as to whether or not the tools that come with the SDK come with an emulator like VS does for Windows Mobile.Sorry if this is a stupid question, but maybe I'm searching for the wrong thing.Edit I don't suppose there's anything that'll let me write widgets on/for an emulated version of the interface HTC use on the Hero/G2 either is there? Not that it would matter that much.
