Android :: Stock / Vanilla Kind Of Sucks

Nov 9, 2010

its not that bad but in all honesty, I found it to be pretty bland and boring (almost ugly). It also lacks many nice features found on other phones with manufactuer overlays, (This is probably the biggest reason why they put those overlays on top of stock android). Obviously the best thing about it of course is the quicker updates (in most cases). But other than that, my experience with stock was not too fun compared to using now Launcher Pro overtop of just plain stock and even now over TW (I know, i know, people hate TW).

Just had to put this out there. (At work TBC)

Android : To Go From One Activity To Another Via A Kind Of Popup

Apr 12, 2010

I have created a listview with simple list items.When i click on any of the list item a new activity is launched and therefore a new screen opens. But now i want that when i click on the list item i should have a kind of popup which has three options and depending on the option i click a new activity should be launched. Therefore in place of one activity i want an option of choosing one of the three activities depending upon what i chose in the pop up box. I should also have the flexibilty to design the pop up box the way i want.

Android :: Web Browsing Sucks

Sep 20, 2010

First and foremost is the internet browser

1.- the zoom sucks you can zoom with gestures and all but the way it does it sucks. if you pinch slightly it should zoom by a small amount. in other world i can not zoom in to cover what i want to, it zoom either way pass were i want or completely zooms out. of course this i think is just a programming issue of not taking into consideration of how big is the pinch. This is frustrating me so much.

2.- when you zoom the browser relays out the entire page. which is completely wrong it should not happen. when say zooming in on a column of text that you think can be better read by zooming in the browser does a re-layout and now my text is all over the place. the expectation is the you are zooming into a small portion of the webpage not that you are changing the dimensions of the page or object you are zooming in (<DIV>,<p>,<SPAN> or which ever). they should stay still and let me get a bigger view of the window that i'm trying to view. the fix here would be to zoom in without the weird re-layout. it has sucked so much that what I'm doing is caring my iPhone just to browser the web and my droid for all the rest.

Android :: What Kind Of Intent Does Gmail Use For Attachments?

Nov 17, 2010

When I get my activity chooser for my ACTION_GET_CONTENT Intent there is applications I don't want to be there, like the ones who will first create content and then pass the URI to me, like the Voice Recorder. When you use Gmail and try to attach a file you will only see the applications/activities that picks data from your SDCard like Gallery, and in my case Astro (file manager application).

So my question is, what kind of Intent does Gmail use for their Attach? Here is my code, something must be missing since I get applications like Voice Recorder and so on.
Intent action = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
action = action.setType("*/*").addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_OPENABLE);
startActivityForResult(Intent.createChooser(action, "Upload file from..."), 1);

General :: Way To Install Some Kind Of VPN Client On Android

Dec 26, 2012

recently bought a car in CHINA and it came with a Android powered dvd/navigation/fm/player/etc. I have it already connected to a Mobile WiFi over the China Mobile via a USB WiFi Dongle and downloaded some apps. Some apps I use are blocked in china (TuneIn Radio, Pandora, etc), and i'm looking for a way to have a VPN on it.

The thing is that the manufacturer of the device removed the VPN network settings, so I can't connect (or it is absent on the Android 2.3.4 ). is there a way to install some kind of VPN Client on this android? I already have a paid VPN Account and use on my apple devices.

Android :: GMAIL System Sucks

Apr 13, 2010

I own an HTC hero. Yes it has great apps, is very functional, and has a wonderful feel in the hand but the most upsetting part about his phone and ALL android phones is how easy they can become bricks. The phone was working great no problems. Then someone compromised my gmail account. They changed my password and password reset programs. The phone became useless. I was locked out of my phone because the GMAIL system sucks.

I finally spoke to 2 people at google 650 253 0000 and 310 460 4000. No one was able to help me. They are not "authorized to transfer people to other departments or give out contact phone numbers". The google reset password program requires you to input the most email'd address into a form... not a good feature for a PHONE! NONE OF THE INFORMATION IS STORED ON THE MEM CARD. Android does not do that? So it's a great phone when it works. When someone hacks into your email account, your phone is worthless.

Android :: Sucks At Multitasking - Laggy ?

Dec 3, 2009

I seem to be realizing more and more every day that android actually really sucks at multitasking. What is up with that? The pre makes me rather jealous in that respect. Sure, it's usually not that big of a deal but it just should be better. It seems like all the apps I don't want to keep running do, and the ones that I do, don't. Any game will keep running after I'm done with it(and cannot be closed without the use of a 3rd party task killer - that's just pitiful) but if I want to look something up while I'm writing an email or a text message I have to save it as a draft. That just doesn't make any sense. The least google can do is include a task manager. If I didn't have advanced task manager, my phone would be laggy as hell because about half of my apps start when I start up my phone for no apparent reason and keep running. I can use advanced task manager and that's all well and good but I shouldn't HAVE to. Personally, this seems like a fairly big flaw to me. I love android and I'm sure I'll stick with it but I'd really really like to seem something similar to the "cards" idea with the pre. I love to make fun of the iPhone for not being able to multitask but that's almost hard to do with the state android is in right now.

I have an object on my main.xml layout file called thefact that is TextView. I also have a string called sharefact. I want to save what text is in the TextView into the sharefact string. I can't do:

Android :: Good For Enterprise SUCKS My Battery

Sep 1, 2010

I need to use GFE for my work, however, as soon as I install this app my battery use went from little over 24 hours to about 6 hours. This dam application just won't stop checking for the emails and constantly keeping my phone active. I tried killing it via Task Killer, via managing applications and all forsaken, as this thing like a locust keeps coming back to life and suck the life out of my battery.
Anyone came up with the idea how I can kill GFE for good and activate it back when I need it?I just upgraded my Incredible to 2.2 and it seems that it has two app managing native tools - "manage applications" and "running services" both show apps that are currenlty running. I tried killing GFE using both and still unsuccessful .

Android :: Flash Sucks - Kills Battery Life And Heats Up

Jun 27, 2010

I have not had one good experience with Flash so far. Its laggy. The rollover stuff really is a pain. It slows down the whole phone. Kills battery life and heats up my phone enough to fry an egg. Its deja vu. I hate Apple and I hate Steve Jobs, and I was a huge supporter of Flash coming to Android, but frankly, its terribly disappointing. The tap to interact thing is really annoying and doesn't work. I tried to watch the World Cup game and it was off center in full screen mode and very laggy. since we already have youtube and hulu won't let us watch their stuff, it seems that 95% percent of Flash really is ads. Also, I tried to watch a video in a flash player and i couldn't change the volume or pause it. And when scrolling, any flash content lags in movement and slows down the whole page. Am I the only one disappointed? I mean, I know its only a beta but they have a long way to go for me to consider keeping it installed on a regular basis.

HTC Incredible :: Mail Over Wi-Fi Sucks

May 4, 2010

Alright, I do know that many people are having this problem with Yahoo! mail at least the free Yahoo! mail. that it will only work over 3G and not wifi. Well, I am having that problem as well as one with my hotmail account. Hotmail seems to retrieve the email over wifi, but when I click within a message to "See remaining (x)k I will get the notification that "This message is no longer available on server". Also, even though I have it checked in settings, deleting a message on my phone will not delete it on the server.I was wondering if anyone has a solution to these problems. In this case, simply switching to gmail is not the solution I am looking for.

HTC Incredible :: YouTube App Sucks?

May 30, 2010

At first I thought it looked decent since the interface was clean and the HQ videos looked good. But now the more and more I use it I realize how much it sucks. To start, you can't do ANYTHING while watching a current video without it stopping. So if you want to comment on the video, read it's info, or put your phone on sleep, the video stops playing.

Because of this it makes YouTube useless for music. YouTube is one of the best music sites out there (since almost any song is uploaded in video form), but because you can't put the phone on sleep or do something else while it's playing it's unusable. Why would I stare at an image on my screen at full brightness for 5 minutes while listening to a song? It's a battery killer and makes no sense. Also the search feature is weaker. For some reason when I search stuff on I get much more results than I do on the mobile app. Lastly, you can't tweak the settings to make HQ video as the default. The low-quality videos are awful and you have to go into settings each time to change it to HQ.
