Android :: Tell Developers Want Apps On IPhone For Android

Feb 19, 2010

Some of the developers of iPhone apps seem to be a little complacent with developing counterpart apps for the Android Market. Maybe if we inundate them with requests and show them how high the demand is, they'll get off of their keysters and start with the Android development. To make this easier for us all, I've compiled a list of some of the most popular iPhone apps that don't have an Android version yet, along with the email addresses, twitter accounts, and 'contact us' sites that you can all use to contact the developers to simply say "We want an Android app!" Just like money, demand talks. Plus, every new app we get (or at least get someone to get started on) is one less thing the Apple fan boys can brag about!

Please feel free to add any apps you would want to see (like IMDB for instance).Make sure you include the corresponding contact info. I'm hoping the Moderators will make this a sticky thread.As I was developing this list, I was going to include eBay, since they did not have an official Android app...that is until I saw it in the Market a couple days ago! The apps are coming, we just have to keep pressing people for them.

Android :: Publish Apps For Other Developers

Oct 6, 2009

In terms of publishing apps for developers that reside in countries where they are not currently able to sell their apps via the Android Market, is this practice okay? Does it violate the Terms and Conditions of being a seller in any way?

Android :: Developers Stop Posting Paid Apps On Android Market

Feb 27, 2009

As Google's current support for paid apps in the Android Market is limited to the US market only (and even on the US market, would not support ADP1 phone), I really think you guys should stop posting your apps in there. Please make yourself a favor being able to reach the whole world and post your apps on androidgear or SlideMe or handango.

Motorola Droid : Android Apps Vs IPhone Apps

Nov 16, 2009

I know the "cool kid in school" thing to do is make fun of the iPhone market for having 1,000's of 'Fart apps'

But let's be honest at the end of the day it's really not true, and now coming from being a previous iPhone owner and now a Droid owner i can honestly say, the iPhone app market wins by a TON.

This is just a general QUALITY of apps comparison as well.

NO i'm not switching back... but man do i miss the iPhone apps...

Especially facebook.. and others..

You can REALLY tell the difference between the quality of iPhone apps vs Android,

So why am i starting this thread?.. Well i'm hoping maybe a developer could chime in and enlighten us on why this is...

Things i'm curious about-

Is programming in android worse then in the iPhone OS? is that why apps are WAY less in quality?

And you can't give the excuse that it's because things are new, when the iPhone market came out the apps were quality at day 1, many of them were.

So what's the difference? i guess software...

Well i'm sticking with android even though this exists.. in hopes that maybe future Android OS updates and SDK's will improve this very obvious difference.. right now i'm not impressed at all... the apps are all Slow, and they look horrible.

And for twitter? holy crap... iPhone owners back me up here, but the iPhone twitter apps are lightyears ahead of android twitter apps.

Just take a look at Tweetdeck for iPhone, and compare to to what i guess is the best android twitter app, twidroid?

Compare those and you'll see what i'm talking about.

Android :: Openly Hostile Rant To Android Developers On Apps That Won't Shut Off Or Stay Shut Off

Jun 28, 2010

What possible reason could there be for you to code your apps so that they switch on in the background when the phone is turned on and use up precious battery life?

Or, why would you code your apps to stay on after I, the user, have hit the back button because I no longer want your app to run?

I mean, REALLY! Yes, I own up to being a newbie Android user, and what I don't know could fill the Library of Congress. Still, this is common sense we're talking about here. I've done some industrial app development and Enter/Exit, On/Off are basic pieces of logic in the main loop of an program in any language.

The only reason that we phone users need task killer apps is because you developers insist on creating apps that don't know when the f**k to turn themselves off.

And, it seems to me like you, the app developers, are one of the main reason why these phones have such crappy battery life. I mean, my Samsung Instinct, as bad as it was, got 18 to 24 hours of life off of one charge. With the Hero, I'm lucky if I can get 10 hours, and that's even with configuring my email download to only three times per day!

This is not hard, people. You code the app to stay off until, I, the user, manually turn it on. AND, you also code it to turn off when I, the user, hit the back button.

Yes, I understand that there are certain apps that it is advantageous to keep running in the background. So, fine, make it so those keep running. BUT, there is no possible reason for apps like Flashlight, or BBC News, or Camera, or SprintTV to have to run all the time in the background!

I am so tempted to just trash the lot of you. If I did, maybe I might not have as much functionality, but my teenager would be able to reach me late in the day because my phone battery would still have juice.

Android :: Apps - Iphone Multiplayer

Aug 12, 2010

I know of Skies of Glory, but how many apps do you guys know of that you can play your iphone friends in. I know there arent many. But i think there are 2 or 3 that you really have to look for but they just arent coming to mind aside from SoG.

Believe it or not, i still have 1 or 2 friends that havent converted to the evo and are still using that old iphone thing. Would love to kill em in words with friends but i know thats not for android (yet).

Android :: Droid Apps Suck Compared To IPhone

Jul 17, 2010

Have somewhat limited exposure but what I do have on Android Apps is not positive.The Apple Apps store is far superior to what you get with AppBrain and Market.The Android Apps always give a very vague and sketchy description, next to impossible to get details of what it does.I bought Bettercut and Cashbook - Expense Tracker, both sucked in a big way.Already uninstalled both.The open architecture of Android is a great concept and I love my DroidX.I hope the apps come along soon to make the whole thing complete.

Android :: IPhone Or Android Apps That Use SMS Based Authentication?

Jun 1, 2010

What are some iPhone or Android applications that use SMS as their primary means of user authentication?I'm interested to see such apps in action. SMS-auth seems like a natural approach that is well-situated to mobile contexts.

The basic workflow is: to sign up,a user provides a phone number; the app calls a backend webservice which generates a signed URL and sends it to the phone number via an SMS gateway; the user receives the SMS, clicks the link, and is thus verified and logged in. This results in a very strong user identity that is difficult to spoof yet fairly easy. It can be paired with a username or additional account attributes as needed for the product requirements.Despite the advantages, this does not seem to be in much use - hence my question. My initial assumption is that this is because products and users are wary of asking for / providing phone numbers, which users consider sensitive information. That said, I hope this becomes an increasingly more commonplace approach.

HTC Hero :: IPhone Cant Run Simultaneous Apps

Oct 19, 2009

I just wanted to check, e.g. on my Hero I can run GPS Tracker and press home and it will run in the background, play some music and press home and it will run in the background and go and do something else.

Are you saying the iPhone would have to completely exit the GPS Tracker to use another app or leave the GPS Tracker open and not do anything else for it to work?

Android :: Looking For Few Co Developers

Apr 2, 2009

I am looking for some fellow developers to build a few applications that work together to allow the android phone to take advantage of cheap telephony services provided over the internet. These are sms, voip, calling cards and similar such services.I have been investigating this quite a bit and developing an app to work with PennyTel but i have discovered an issue with the Android OS. Android is not designed to let you replace low level systems in your app and there for there is no way to capture out going sms etc. This means that to write an app that sends all out going sms via pennytel is impossible and that the only way around this is to write your own sms client like ChompSMS and i am sure this will apply to other parts of the phone as well.What i am looking to do is make a reusable system that uses intents to do things. A complete sms application that uses an intent to send the sms so that more sms providers can be added later, a dialer and outgoing call system that will fire an event for another app to make the call etc.What I want is sever apps that use intents not just to open their app but also to choose the outgoing their service uses. personally i want to write one of the outgoing paths and i am looking for some developers who would be interested in writing the more front end apps like the dialer and sms applications.If anyone is interested let me know as it is just too much work for one person and i am sure your apps will be used by many people as more and more people could right services they could be hooked into.

Android :: Hiding App Developers

Jul 17, 2010

Is there any way of hiding specific app developers that you don't link on the market?
E.g. if one developer has made thousands of sound board apps or themes for an app that I won't be using - I could hide that developer and wouldn't see his/her apps on the market?

If this is possible, I think it would make the market much less annoying when you have to scroll through hundreds of sound boards and app themes.

Android :: Catch 22 For Developers?

This would be some excellent support for the faithful Android developers. I have eight apps but live in Canada so I haven't been permitted to post them on the Market yet. Still I'm hoping Google might take this into account for Canadian developers who can't yet meet the sales criteria. I applied anyway and hope Google will respond so I can begin mobile testing.
