Android :: What Do You Do To Protect User From Dangerous Button?

Nov 2, 2010

I have an app out that involves keeping track of information over time. Part of the app is a reset button. In order to avoid accidental resets, I made that button respond only to long-clicks.However, that approach confused about 20% of my new users, who thought that the reset button must not be working.Is there a more intuitive (and standard) way to protect a button from accidental presses? (If not, I can add some sort of custom message to the button I have )

Android :: React To Screen_on Only When User Pressed Button

May 17, 2009

I have a BroadcastReceiver that receives SCREEN_ON. If the screen came on because the user pressed a button, I want to do something. However, if the screen was turned on by an app (e.g., alarm clock going off or SMS popup), then I don't want to do anything. Anyone know how I can differentiate between the two cases?

Android :: Prompt User To Save Changes When Back Button Is Pressed

Mar 17, 2010

I have an activity that contains several user editable items (an EditText field, RatingBar, etc). I'd like to prompt the user if the back/home button is pressed and changes have been made that have not yet been saved. After reading through the android documentation, it seems like this piece of code should go in the onPause method. I've tried putting an AlertDialog in the onPause however the dialog gets shown and then immediately tears down because nothing is there to block the pause from completing.

Android :: How To Close An Activity When User Clicks On Home Button

Feb 19, 2010

I understand that trying to capture home button clicks is a hack, but I need to atleast close my current activity when the user clicks on home button. Is there anyway I can tell the system to close this activity is the user clicks on home button? If so how can I do that? I need to do it as I am listening for location updates and I want to stop the updates and also need to trash any location that was available to me previously. I need to do this just in case any user while in that activity clicks on home button and changes the location settings.

Android :: Switch Image Of An ImageButton When User Releases Button?

Feb 7, 2010

I'm trying to make it so that as long as a user is touching the button, it shows one image, and when the user releases the button, it goes back to a default image.

I'm trying to use a selector to make this happen:

CODE:...............

I've tried a few things with the selector, but it always produces the same behavior: the button starts out with the default image, then I press it and it changes to the "record_on" image and it never goes back to the default image when I let go.

Is there a way to get this kind of behavior with an ImageButton, or should I be using something different?

Android : User Action Emulate Hardware 'Back' Button?

Sep 6, 2010

I looked around and although there are many related questions I didn't see one that answers my exact question:

I would like to create an app that runs in the background that provides the exact same functionality as the hard coded 'Back' button in all cases.

The reason? I (for example) have a Droid X, and it is BIG. it makes it extremely hard to use one-handed and having a swipe gesture function as a back button (like in Palm Pre for example) would greatly increase the ease of use.

as far as I'm concerned the app could just be one simple class that contains:
1) a listener for the 'back' swipe
2) a call to the physical hard button itself

Is this possible? are there built in APIs for the hard coded buttons that would allow me to call them without actually pressing them?

Again - I'm not interested in overriding the button, I'm interested in making a software call to it - or failing that, in emulating it's behavior in any and all states and other apps!

Please forgive the naivete of this post. I am a very novice programmer and really I just want to know whether this is possible before I start to devote myself to trying to build it.

Android :: Application Crashes When User Presses Back Button / Where To Put Code?

Oct 6, 2010

First of all, maybe i went about this the wrong way in the first place. Situation is, i have a listview that when an item is clicked, it creates an intent and calls startActivityForResult() to another activity, to be able to edit the entries in the row. and that other activity after editing the required values, returns back to the calling activity, when the user clicks on a save button. The activity then uses the row Id to update the item.My problem now is that, if the user presses the BACK button instead, the application crashes. i have been looking around and see solutions like using Shared Preferences or onSavedInstanceState(), but i don't know where exactly i should be putting the code?

Android :: Prevent Activity From Saving State When User Selects Back Button

May 2, 2010

I have an Activity with a list that is bound to a ListAdapter reading data into a ArrayList from a database. All is well when the data is first loaded. While the Activity is open and the list is being displayed it is possible and likely that the data in the database will be updated by a service but the list does not reflect the changes because the ArrayList does not know about the changes. If the Activity is no longer in the foreground as would be the case if the user goes to the home screen and then is brought back to the foreground I would like for the Activity to not display what it did prior but rather reload the data using the ListAdapter the view is bound to. I think something needs to call finish() but I am not sure what.

This is what I have in the Activity.

CODE:.......................

I call WebView.clearHistory(), but I am still able to go back after doing so. I want to reuse a WebView, but I don't want the back button to allow the user to go back further than the current "session" of using the WebView. Anybody know what is the best way to handle this? I thought for sure that clearHistory() would do it.

Android :: How To Protect Private Information From Others?

Jun 23, 2010

I've integrated lots of private information like accounting, messaging, emails, tasks and so on, into desktop widgets and everywhere around the phone. Every so often, someone wants to take a look at the phone and play around. Reading some important stuff is one thing, but people tend to mess the stuff around as well. Have you found a program or a way to protect from that? (other than denying to the people :> ) I guess some kind of shell program that you turn over when someone wants to demo the phone would be a nice solution.

Android :: Better Way To Protect Apps - Get A License Key?

Apr 6, 2009

Just did a little search on google with my paid app name, I found these:

http://www.ipmart-forum.com/archive/index.php/t-337082.html http://droidappz.co.cc/index.php/board,21.0.html

Someone bought the priced app from market with the "rooted" phone and copy the apk file, then post on the websites for others to download.

Should Android team give a better way to protect the priced apps?

For example, encrypt the apk with the unique device hardware id for each download request. And verify the key before execution. So the apk can only be used on this phone.

There should be much better and complicated ways. but this is the basic idea.

I have checked the BlackBerry app world, looks like they have something different:

General :: How To Protect Android From Getting Messed Up

Mar 13, 2012

My parents are going on a trip in a month and they have there heart set on taking a smartphone with them.What they need is being able to call, text and mail.They also want to be able to use it as a backup (just in case) for finding their way. So just in case they get lost to find out where they are on their map or use the gps to guide them for a little while.

So basically, calling, sms, mail and gps. They don't need to be able to change a lot of settings.So, I was thinking about installing their (yet to buy) smart phone with a simple home screen and the settings they would need. To keep them from accidentally messing anything up, I was wondering if it is possible to password protect settings and stuff.

-how to protect settings etc.
-a good home screen
-other things like very simple gps app for example

Android :: Copy Protect Rights For Applications?

I'm getting many complaints that users can't find our paid app in the Android Market. I know exactly why. Our app is "Copy-Protected". So the questions is, if our paid app is already available all over the internet for FREE!! What's the point of copy protecting an app? Should I even care at this point about that feature? It seems I'm gonna get more sales if I disable copy protection, but makes me wonder.

Android :: Want A Goog Way To Protect Application Files

Sep 11, 2010

I m designing a big android application, where there are XMLs to store temporary data, images captured by camera and other details. Which is the best way to protect them from outer access from phone or from PC. XMLs can be encrypted. And images too, however there are times when they need to be accessed very often and encrypting-decrypting is very heavy operation. XML encryption is manageable but images cause memory problems. Is there any alternative way, something at folder level ?
