Android :: Detect If User Using Application First Time?

Sep 21, 2010

I would like to know if the user is using the application for the first time. I am using SharedPreferences, but I am not sure if I have the right logic. How can I set my isFirstLaunched boolean to true when the user first launches, and then immediately set to false after work has been done?

protected void onStart() {
super.onStart();

if(isFirstLaunch()){
populateDefaultQuotes();
//Save the preferences, isFirstLaunch will now be false
SharedPreferences settings = getSharedPreferences(Constants.PREFS_NAME, 0);....................

Android :: Detect User Idle Time

Jul 21, 2010

I would like to know if android has some kind of 'idle time broadcast message'. So for example if the user is currently using one activity of my application but haven't touched the screen or used any keyboard (and doesn't have the autolock at phone level or any screensaver) for a while, I would like to be informed (let's say after 60 seconds). I would like to avoid doing it manually (by tracking each user click, touch, activity changes...)

Android :: Detect If User Started App Again?

Jan 19, 2009

I want a countdowntimer to halt on a menu and also when the user goes from that menu to another activity. When the user comes back from that activity or when the menu is closed, the timer should still halt. However when the user went to the home screen and clicks on the icon again, I want the timer to restart. So my question is, is there a way to detect if the user has just opened your application, or if the user comes back from another activity or menu?

Android :: How To Detect When User Switches Tasks?

Aug 5, 2010

Say that TaskA is currently in the foreground and my ActivityA is somewhere within its stack. Is there a way for ActivityA to get notified or detect when the user switches from TaskA to TaskB? As a use scenario, when the user launches my app, my ActivityA will always be the root Activity of the newly created Task. ActivityA will make use of Activities from other Apps, which will be pushed on the same Task. I would like to get notified when the user has switched to another application. In this case, onStop() in MyActivityA does not suffice as that will also get invoked if the user navigates to another screen within my app.

Android :: Detect If User Discarded Message

I'm writing an application and I have a feedback screen.

However, how can I tell if the user has pressed the Discard button and did not send the email?

Android :: Detect When User Taps On View?

Jan 10, 2010

I want to detect when a user taps anywhere in a view in my Android application. My code looks like this:

linearLayout = (LinearLayout) findViewById(R.id.linearLayout); // main layout
// ...
linearLayout.setOnTouchListener(this);
// ...
public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Touch!", 1000);
if (event.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Down!", 1000);
return true;
}
return false;
}

but when I click on the view, I don't get Toast! Do touch events work in the emulator -- or have I got something wrong in my code?

Android :: Accelerometer Detect User State

Oct 27, 2010

I'm currently working on a project which requires the detection of user state (walking, running, driving), I've looked through some of the existing solutions on Android platform such as pedometer or calculating velocity with given acceleration, but I'm still unsure how I can approach this problem. Is there a way to accomplish this without much of data mining/signal processing? How can I solve this with simple logic? Or is this better solved with gps instead of accelerometer? The program will only need to return simple user-state descriptions like walking.

Android :: Detect If User Selected From CreateChooser Options?

Jul 20, 2010

I have a code that will prompt user to send a message by selecting the desired application, how can I detect if the user actually have chose from the options or instead pressed Back? I tried to check if the intent returned something, but is running asyncronous so cannot be tracked. Also I have tried to run the intent with startActivityForResult, what I noticed in onActivityResult that resultCode is always 0(RESULT_CANCELED) even if user selected, or not from the chooser.

Android :: Google Maps API - Detect When User Stopped Panning Map

Apr 3, 2010

I need to know when the user is panning the map so I can check if they've panned outside of the initial radius that I fetch data from the API with when the app launches. If the user pans outside this radius, when they stop panning I will get the new center point of the map and fetch new data with that geo-point. So far I can't find anything in the Google Maps API docs [and I've inspected the entire class tree] that notifies developers when any animation actions are occurring or completed.. It seems weird that Google wouldn't give us some sort of event listener or protected method to override on the MapView or something to do this.

I looked into what methods were available to override on the View class and it does have onAnimationEnd() but I guess panning or zooming the map doesn't count as an animation or is never passed up from the MapView or something... I tried running a simple log in onAnimationEnd() and it is never being called. Searching the interwebs gave me nothing but some never-successfully-answered posts.

Android :: Detect User's Location From Webpage Opened In Browser?

Dec 24, 2009

Visiting www.google.com on the Android browser (or even with an android spoofed user-agent), presents the option to "Share Location". When clicked, it uses the GPS/Cell phone towers to figure out the location. I tried the google.loader.clientLocation but that only works using the IP address. Is there a method to tap into the Android OS and access GPS data from a regular web application (and not an Android application) similar to the way Google does? [Perhaps Google uses the Google Gears app on Android to access this data.]

Android :: Time To First Screen - Boot Up And Application Start Time?

at the moment I am thinking about a new app and need some information to decide whether to develop on Android or an alternative OS. I am particularly interested in "time to first screen", "boot-up time", "time to first Audio" and "app-start" (can be any from the android market or even one of the pre-installed ones) time? Does anyone know a source or perhaps measured those numbers?

Similar to the getDateTimeInstance method from java.text.DateFormat. I'm currently just concatenating the result of both the getDateFormat and getTimeFormat's formatters, but I don't know which way around the user prefers to have their dates and times shown.

Samsung Captivate :: Blackberry User To First Time Android

Aug 27, 2010

I will be purchasing the Samsung Captivate tmrw from the AT&T store after work. Planning to pay $379 for the no commitment since I'm not eligible for an upgrade right now. This will be my very FIRST Android phone. I have no experience what so ever. With that being said, I'm a big Blackberry user, and will be coming from the Blackberry Bold 9000. Is anyone here also an ex-blackberry user? How will the transition be? anything I'll be missing from the bb that wont be on the captivate? I love my blackberry, its a great phone, it does what I need with emails in a heart beat. It's just lacking a lot in multimedia and web browsing, and I'm sure I'm probably missing out on a lot of other cool stuff too especially since I'm paying $30 a month for data plan. Emails & Calendars are very important for me. How will the push email be on the Captivate / Android? I handle 4 email accounts with a mix of Gmail and non gmail. As far as calendars go, I have really bad memory so all my dates and important daily task needs to be in my phone. My brother has an iphone 4, it seems great and all, but not to offend anyone, the OS seems kinda "dumbed down" for kids. It seems to lack a lot of options and customization compared to all the options and choices I had on my blackberry. I've read a lot about how the android lets you customize a lot, so hopefully I'll be going in the right path.
