Android :: Timer & App Updated

Sep 27, 2010

I would like to know how to intercept the event that the apk has been updated in order to launch again my Timer. Indeed, I have a Timer wich is "scheduled AtFixedRate", but when my App is updated through the market, the timer is killed ; and if the user doesn't launch the App, the timer is not started (so my app becomes useless). How could I do to avoid it ? Is there an event to catch the "App updated" ? I searched, tried, but nothing.

Android :: Looking For Looping Timer

Sep 27, 2010

I have to give a 20x20 presentation tomorrow and I'm looking for a timer app to help out. 20x20 means that each slide auto-advances after 20 seconds. I'd like to have a timer on my phone that would give me a quick glance of how much time I have left for each slide. Start it at 20 seconds, have it count down and when it hits zero, start over at 20. Seeing as it's just a timer app, I really would rather not pay $2 for StopWatch & Timer, which is the only one I've found that offers a looping timer. Does anyone have any ideas?

Android :: Timer Doesn't Work

May 4, 2009

I am using a Timer in my android application, but i can't get it to work. When I start my application the Timer simply does not start. The application continues but does not update.The long "toStart" finds the number of seconds left of the current minute, and thereafter the period is set to 60 seconds. The TimerTask simply calls a method.

Android :: Force Close Timer?

Dec 28, 2009

Is there an app that lets you set a countdown timer on another app which causes it to force close. For example, I use my Eris as my MP3 player and would like to listen to it while I go to sleep, however I don't wanna let it play all night while I'm sleeping maybe just an hour or so.*Edit* Nevermind I found an app that does the job. Its called Music Sleep. It lets you set a timer that will close your music app in case anyone else was interested. It only costs 99 cents

Android :: Problem In GPS While Running In Timer

Nov 11, 2009

I am presently working on GPS. I have to start GPS periodically. I mean I want GPS to start after a particular interval, get Location value and then stop taking location updates. For this, I'm calling requestLocationUpdates( , , ) method in a timer. Then in onLocationChanged(), I stop taking location by using removeUpdates(). Then after particular interval, it again starts taking values, then when location changes, it stops, and so on.

Here is my code:


Now the problem is:It starts fine for the first time,when location changes it stops then starts again,but the timer stops running after that.I dont get any error or exception.I dont know where is the problem.As far as I am concirned,the problem is in timer......

Android :: Timer - Threads - Reliability

Mar 4, 2010

I have an activity that uses a Timer (java.util.Timer) to control the display. I set it off to repeat its run() method every second or so. When it runs, it updates some View elements.

As Timer runs in its own thread, I assumed this would be reliable. But I notice that sometimes there is a stutter, or delay, in the views updating. It's like they occasionally get stacked up, and all happen together. Studying the output from logcat, I notice that this happens when the device is doing something else - some system functions, or sometimes a garbage collection.

How can I avoid this? I'm not aware I can run the main activity in a thread of its own, can I? If the timer has its own thread, why is it affected?

Android :: Timer Stops Running?

Oct 4, 2010

I have a class that is essentially a message manager (a singleton) that has a timer that polls for status. (statusPollerTask is just a derived class of TimerTask that has the run() defined)

timer.scheduleAtFixedRate(this.statusPollerTask, 0, 1000);

Several Activities register themselves with the msg-man for updates (observer pattern style) as they become visible. Works fine, except if the user presses the Home button and minimizes the app. Sometimes the timer keeps polling other times it doesn't. I need to maintain the polling even when the app is not visible. I feel like I'm just missing something simple here.

Android : Countdown Timer App That Actually Works?

Oct 1, 2009

I was rather surprised to find a couple of features missing from android, having just moved from a sony-ericsson w200i (a phone which i bought for a fifth of the price of my new galaxy), in which these features seemed obvious

i did get tone picker to sort out the lacking ringtone settings etc. but when i tried to find a simple countdown app i hit a bit of a wall
from the ones i tested out, "oi countdown" and "countdown alarm" seemed to work ok up until the point the alarm rang and i couldn't shut the thing up in any other way than booting the whole phone
"snappy countdown timer" is the closest i've found for a simple app to remind you when your pizza is done, but that has the annoying issue of the ui being way too sensitive to pick a specific time (on minute-scale)

so is there a simple app to do the job of an egg timer that actually works?
