Android : Weren't There Supposed To Be 1000's Of Apps?

Nov 19, 2009

I have to say that when the Android Market tells me I can browse the "top" apps but need to use the on-phone App-finder to see it all, I am immediately Paranoid. This is precisely the Hipster-Nerd-Elite stuff that makes me go all queasy when I think of the low-hanging I-Fruit that is everything open-source is NOT. It makes a person ask, what are you hiding?

Having said this, I still expected that there would already be several large Softpedia-type sites with a google or two of applications waiting for the Android user. You know--everything that open-source is. So now I find myself looking for an alternative audio-player to find that only TuneWiki comes up more than once or twice (and with each new introduction I like the option less).

So am I looking in all the wrong places, or should I have stuck with WM if I wanted 35 choices for every type of app? Right now, I'm feeling a bit scared at least until my contract is up again.

HTC EVO 4G : Phonebook - Send Message Lines That Weren't Really Appropriate

Jun 17, 2010

I already searched and didn't come up with anything.

In my phone's phonebook, I have 3 numbers for my brother. HOME, WORK, MOBILE and when I go to look him up there are entries for sending MESSAGES to his home or work numbers. How can I remove those lines as I will never send messages to his HOME or WORK numbers? They are just clutter when I am trying to figure out what to do.

If you got rid of "send message" lines that weren't really appropriate, please share some knowledge.

Android :: Sending 1000 Messages In Batch Using SMS API

Jan 14, 2010

I have G1. I write python scripts using ASE. I have to send around 1000 SMSes using SMS API in ASE. I wonder if G1 will be able to hold up-to that? moreover, how much pause (time gap/ sleep) should I give between each message sent. Some of my colleges think that its a crazy idea. I should go for GSM modem. What do you think, is this feasible enough? Can G1 enough capable? I dont have dev version.

General :: Messaging Text Limit More Than 1000?

Apr 13, 2012

Is there a way to increase (or disable it!!!!) Message Text Limit more than 1000 messages per thread/conversation??

In Froyo 2.2.1 there were an option called "Delete old messages", but in Gingerbread this options is not present and I just can set numbers from 10 to 1000 of messages per thread/conversation.

I need to remove this limit without installing a CustomROM (currently I've the stock one), is it possibile?

(I'm using Motorola Atrix 4G with Gingerbread 2.3.6 and I've got 2Gb of free space for system's apps and SMS, so I'm not worried about space occupied for text messages)

Motorola Milestone : Benchmark Results Stock 800mhz - 1000 Mhz

Jun 10, 2010

These benchmarks were taken with: Quadrant Standard

550 mhz Score: 351
800 mhz Score: 441
1000 mhz Score: 569

Thought that I share these incase someone was curious. I have a Android 2.1 Motorola Milestone. Its interesting to note that at 1000mhz when compared against the online database of benchmark results the Milestone placed higher than the Nexus 2.1. Though of course the nexus 2.2 still lead the charts.

Android :: Cache Supposed To Be Accessible?

Mar 18, 2009

My app is downloading a file that does not need to be kept. So I was trying to put it in the directory returned by Environment.getDownloadCacheDirectory() (that returns "/cache").
But apparently it is not accessible, (a FileNotFoundException is thrown).

Android : Is CDATA Supposed To Be URL-encoded

Oct 17, 2010

Obviously the answer is no... right? The reason I ask is because I have this string defined in XML for an Android app:

<string name="foo"><![CDATA[<html><body><p>This%20is%20a%20test</p></body></html>]]></string>

All I do to the string is read it, and display in an HTML view. I would not have expected the %20s to be interpreted, yet they are. Is this the correct behaviour, or is Android being typically buggy?

Android : TextView Supposed To Be Able To Scroll Its Contents?

Nov 10, 2009

It was my understanding that even though TextView is not a ScrollView, it has scrolling functionality built-in.

However, I'm not able to scroll the contents of a TextView (that's on 1.6). I've reduced my code to the most trivial example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android=" android" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:orientation="vertical"> Code...

I then defined a really long string for testing, which I set on this text view using setText(). The text is too long for the TextView, but there is no way to scroll it. So do I need to wrap it in a ScrollView after all?

Android :: Need Contacts App To Handle 1000 Contacts?

Nov 21, 2009

I posted this in the HTC Hero forum as well. As I mentioned in a previous thread i have had my Hero for about 1 week. I primarily need my phone for business. I made the decision to go with Android due to it being google and ease of importing contacts and calendar etc. I just imported 5,000 contacts into my phone and now if I need to find a contact it takes minutes to pull up I really like this phone HOWEVER the keyboard (way to small to type quickly on) and the in ability to handle 1,000's of contacts is going to force me to trade this phone and head back to the black berry Is there another application for android that can handle 1,000's of contacts?

Android : Aren't Focus States Supposed To Bubble To Child Views?

Apr 19, 2010

When using a View within a View, for example an ImageView within a LinearLayout, both of which have xml drawable resources (the LinearLayout as a background) specifying PNG drawables to use for the on/off states, shouldn't children Views receive the focus state when their parent gets focus? So as far as I understand, both my LinearLayout and ImageView should be switching to their focus states right? Apparently not Or, more likely, apparently my implementation is incorrect.

The focus state works on the LinearLayout but my ImageView never receives focus.. I have both Views set to android:focusable="true".

Sprint HTC : Hero Supposed To Be A Multitasking Device?

Nov 11, 2009

Just wanted to make sure that the Hero is supposed to be a multitasking device? Because every time I try to multitasking, my phone freaks out.

For example, as I was typing this (i am typing this post on my Hero), my green LED started flashing because I got an email. So I pressed home so I could check my email (no notification drag down in browser) and phone started to just get jittery, get stuck, and just freak out and lag. All the meanwhile, the music I was listening to started to skip and stutter like crazy. That was just a simple multitasking task that went haywire (sp?) and it isn't the only time that its happened.

Like I would be browsing the Market and get a text (which lagged in that the notification ring sounds a couple of seconds after the phone vibrates) and I press home to check my sms (via chompsms because of the sms bug) and once again, my phone freaks out (not as badly as how I mentioned before, but still annoying.

Overall, I just don't think the Hero is doing a very good job at multitasking (my Hero at least). But i thought the Hero was supppsed to be a multitasking phone, no? What's the dealio?

PS: This took me FOREVER to type on the Hero because of its crazy keyboard lag when using it in the browser (even with haptic feedback off)

HTC 4G : Referb EVO Worse Then What I Am Supposed To Send Back

Aug 31, 2010

So I got my replacement evo today that I was told would be new... its not, I am not very happy about that. but besides that the referb unit is in worse shape then my release day evo. The screen is up level with the bezel and higher in some spots ,the menu soft key only lights up half way and the vibrating is about half as strong as mine. they are both hardware 3. I have not activated it and have been talking to sprint for 2 hours, waiting on a supervise to call me now. I told them if they are not going to send me a new unit at least let me send back the refurb and have somebody physically test my new refurb before send it out to me to make sure it does not have issues. They say I have to send back mine and then after they get it they can send me out a new one...ERRRR I do not want to use this refurb unit untill I can get another. I am very frustrated with sprint at this point!!!

I am now calling HTC to see what they can do for me under the warenty... Ok He gave me a number for there warranty department but they closed 50 min ago so have to wait for there morning.

It has been half an hour no word from the sprint supervise. I am done ranting now hopefully this makes sense I wrote it really fast and angry. Hope everyone else is having a great Tuesday and if you got an EPIC congrats. Let me know how it is.

HTC Droid Eris :: Soft Keys - Supposed To Light Up?

Jun 19, 2010

I'm on my 3rd Eris - replaced each one for the silent bug. This one hasn't gone silent yet, but the soft keys (home, menu, back, and search) don't light up. Major PITA when using the phone at night. When I took it back to Verizon,they said the buttons aren't supposed to light up. Now I'm second guessing myself. So, can someone with an Eris check it out on your phone and see if the buttons light up? Is there a setting for this that I'm missing? BTW - This last replacement shipped with 2.1 installed and hboot 1.49.

HTC EVO 4G :: Suspend Process - Running CPU At 50%-60% While Phone's Supposed To Be Asleep

Aug 28, 2010

I noticed a weird battery drain on my EVO over the last week or so. I've got the System Panel app, and it appears there's an internal process called "suspend" that is running the CPU at 50%-60% while the phone's supposed to be asleep.

I have the un-updated facebook app, and it doesn't have any login information anyway. The problem started occurring around the time I installed Pandora; have there been any reports of problems with that app? Alternatively, does anybody know what might be causing that process to chew CPU cycles?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Is Keypad Area Supposed To Be Slightly Raised?

Oct 31, 2009

I've had my Hero for over 2 weeks and just recently noticed that the top of the silver keypad area at the bottom of the phone is slightly raised from the level of the glass. I don't remember it being that way but maybe I just didn't notice it until now. For some reason I thought it was flush (even) with the glass before. When I run my finger over it and onto the glass I can tell it (the silver keyboard area) is slightly raised.
