a friend of mine has set me up for a blind date next week.I am freaking terrified.I'm way, way, way more scared than anything I've ever done in my life and I've done some pretty hairy things in my day.Anyway, are there any apps that can make my cell phone ring with an extremely important call at a predetermined time?I'm looking for an escape hatch.It would need to fully simulate a call so it would need to ring and set off my caller ID so if they saw my phone, they could see that someone was really calling.I could fake the conversation of course.

Android :: Android - Capturing Key Event For Backspace

Apr 27, 2010

I am having difficulty capturing the backspace key as a keyboard Event in javascript/jQuery. In Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome, and on the iPhone/iPad, I capture a keyup event on a text input box like this:


This event captures user keystrokes, then sends them to a function to issue an ajax lookup call.

My problem comes when a user wishes to backspace over a character he/she already typed. In all the browsers to which I have access except for my Droid phone, when I press the backspace key, this keyup event captures the value returned by $(this).val().trim() and sends it on to process in function GetHints. On the Droid, however, neither this keyup nor an equivalent keydown event fires until the user backspaces over every character in $(this).

So, for example, if I type "cu" then backspace over the "u" leaving only "c" in the input field, in all browsers except Droid, the keyup event will fire and call function GetHints("c", event, fieldName). On the Droid, the keyup event never fires.

What am I missing? How/why does this backspace key, on either the soft keyboard or the hard keyboard, on my Droid not function as expected? How do I work around this?

Android :: 150 Character SMS Limit

Apr 25, 2010

I've recently gotten my Andriod phone (on Telus) and have been texting my friends.My phone cuts up text messages to 160 character messages and sends them all to my friends.However, when my friends receive them the 160 character message gets cut in to one 150 and one 10 character message, often splitting up words. So 4 160 character messages are received by their Blackberries (several models) or Samsung (Slyde?) phones as 4 150 character messages and 4 10 character messages.Is there an app that lets you sent 150 or even 140 character messages? Handcent doesn't help with all the split options it has.I tried them all, but it splits at 160 so it doesn't matter.Is there any way to split messages at a lower character count?(All my friends also use Telus (and Kobo which is Telus). Does Telus have a 150 limit? Or is it their phones?I receive messages from them just fine, but that's probably because their phones only send 140 or 150 character messages.)

Android :: Sending Unicode Character Via SMS?

Dec 29, 2009

I am developing application for android phone. Currently I am testing my system in the emulator. In my application, I want to send Unicode character (Amharic language character) via SMS to the other emulator instance. But in the receiver side, the message is not viewed properly. I think the problem is some character encoding related problem. In addition similar problem happens for texts which are queried for the sqlite database.
