Android :: Keyboard App That Is Free And Reliable?

Mar 23, 2010

Even with small hands, I make a lot of mistakes with the touch keyboard. Maybe I'm not used to it yet (only had the phone for 4 days) but is there a FREE app for a better keyboard?

Android :: Reliable App Store?

Oct 8, 2010

I think it's a common problem. I'd like to sell my apps, but my country is not supported for merchants already. Do you know a reliable app store where I can sell apps?

Android :: Google Voice - How Reliable Is It?

May 17, 2010

Just ordered my Motorola Droid (yay!) - should be in my hands tomorrow.

I am absolutely going to use my Google Voice for texting (hey, its free). I'm considering using it as my primary number too.

My question: How reliable is Google Voice w/ texting and calls? Any reason NOT to go ahead this route?

I was always going to use it for text (I understand they are instant now), but for ease of communicating w/ my friends and family I'm also considering giving out my number for calls as well.

Android :: Altitude Location Data - Isn't Particularly Reliable

Jul 11, 2010

I know that the GPS altitude data isn't particularly reliable, so I looked for alternatives. This looks like a good solution I found here: But the value returned is not what I expected: -1.79769313486231E+308 I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with this figure...

Android :: How Can Check If Returned Location Is Reliable

Jan 4, 2010

I know how to get the calculated GPS position via getLastKnownLocation (). As tests show, this function really always returns the last known location, so it doesn't matter if there is a gps fix available.

How can i check if the returned location is reliable? I tried it with getAccurracy(), but this function even returns a accurracy although no gps fix is availavle (anymore). Is there a possibility to get gps dop values? Used SDK is 1.6.

Android :: Fastest And Most Reliable Location Provider

Mar 31, 2010

I am working on an app that fetches localized data from the Web based on the user's long/lat. Currently I am querying the system for the best enabled provider [my criteria defines best basically as most precise--not sure if this is the best idea for my application, as at the point where I fetch data it really doesn't matter if the user is here or 3 miles from here.].. But anyhow, I'm curious as to what is most reliably the fastest Location provider? Network or GPS? My app hangs a bit "Acquiring your location" on my loading screen and I'd like to cut this wait time down as much as possible.

Android :: Reliable Http Request Needed

Aug 5, 2009

I have a game in development that makes http calls to my server. The server handles some database interaction and returns some XML for the game to parse. The issue is that the connection seems very unreliable. I believe my server is in part to blame for this because it can be somewhat unresponsive at times, but the frequency is MUCH greater when communicating with the phone than with a browser on a computer. I also notice that it gets worse when 3G is not available for the phone and it is on the edge network. Is there any way to code my app to make it more robust? Do I need to retry calls X times on failures?

Here is the code I am using now:

Android :: How Reliable Is The Google Voice Service

Sep 23, 2010

GV was working well for me for several months. But in the last month, most of the GV calls that I've made have not gone through. I use it mostly from the desktop and when I start a call my phone usually does not ring.

Android :: Reliable Repeating Background Task?

Aug 31, 2009

I'm trying to run a background task which runs every minute or so for an android application but I am struggling to ensure that the task actually runs every minute. I've tried a variety of approaches from using SystemClock.sleep() to the AlarmManager (both repeating alarm and a fixed alarm) but it seems that unless the device is charging any kind of repeating system has a variable repeat rate once the device is unplugged. Is there any way to run a stable consistently repeating service?

Motorola :: Android Multi-touch Support Reliable?

Apr 20, 2010

I wonder if is the Android multi-touch support reliable? I've read it suffers from some problems.I also wonder, how can I define custom multi-touch gestures? Like: 3 fingers rotate or 3 fingers stay static and fourth is moving.I've come across some resources (Gestures or MotionEvent on developer.android.com) but nothing states it clearly.

Android :: More Reliable Than AJAX For Phone / Server Communication?

Dec 21, 2009

I have an application that needs to send messages, repeatedly to the server. I'm currently using AJAX from the phone's browser and it works fairly reliably, but, as with all things cell-phone, not 100%. I'm curious if using Android and opening a socket to the server would give me any additional reliability, or if it would suffer from the same communication troubles that hinder the AJAX transmission.

Android :: Your Applications Can Now Use Reliable Atomic Time Source

Mar 5, 2010

I just updated a free application I've had on Android Market. It's called Navy Clock and can now serve as an NTP time source for any Android application. If you want your application to get the exact atomic time, you can install Navy Clock and connect to the Navy Clock service.

Navy Clock will update your application with the exact time - to the millisecond. This ensures that you don't have to rely on the phone's clock which is often inaccurate by up to a minute, depending on what cell tower you're talking to.

General :: Most Reliable Way To Root / Unroot Android 2.3 Phone

Oct 2, 2011

I'm just concerned about the possibility of bricking my Droid III. Even if the instructions are clear enough, there's a chance of running into something unclear in the midst of the process.

I've read about the One-click root, but I don't know if that's as easy as it gets (as of today) and whether it's an undoable hack.

HTC Hero :: Villian 5.3 Still The Best Bet For RELIABLE 2.1?

May 13, 2010

I want to run a 2.1 ROM (because I use Google Navigation). However reliability is my number 1 criteria.

I tried Sense2.1 (v2) and had a pretty miserable experience, I am now using Villian 5.3 and reasonably happy. IS this this the best bet for RELIABLE operation on HTC Hero?

HTC Desire :: Is GPS Reliable? Navigation

Aug 2, 2010

A reliable GPS is extremely important to me when choosing a smartphone. I want to install android based navigation software, rather than have separate units for driving and hiking. The garminfone seems overpriced given its hardware and ancient android 1.6.

Samsung's Galaxy S impressed me with its 9mm thickness, large Super AMOLED and blazing fast hummingbird processor. After learning the GPS was unreliable, I decided to further explore my #2 choice, the HTC Desire.

Please comment on how your GPS navigation has performed, specifically using igo, copilot or similar navigation software. Do you feel it is as accurate as a dedicated GPS unit?

Android :: Better Keyboard - Switch From T9 Keyboard To Regular Qwerty Keyboard

Apr 18, 2010

For those of you that are familiar with better keyboard. I was wondering about an easy way to switch from the t9 keyboard to the regular qwerty keyboard. I was under the impression that swiping left would toggle between the 2 but all that does is bring me to the numbers and symbols keyboard. I've been changing back and forth to the android keyboard because its faster than going into the better keyboard settings.

Motorola Droid :: GV For Messaging Just Isn't Reliable At All

I check my phone this morning, no messages. I get to work and I have three messages on my GV extension from last night.

I have it set to sync and have a good signal at home. I get e-mail just fine, but GV won't pull down the messages.

HTC Incredible :: Most Reliable Alarm Clock App?

Jun 18, 2010

I'm not liking the alarm clock built into the Dinc. I hate all the alarm sounds and there does not appear to be a way to add different ones or even an MP3. What I'm really looking for is an alarm that will start off softly and build up say over 30 seconds. All the stock alarms just BLAST and freaks me and my wife out each morning. A snooze button is a must as I like to hit it a few times before I need to get up. I also need one that is very reliable as I use it as my main alarm for both home and on travel.

HTC Eris :: Reliable Root For Leakers?

Jul 13, 2010

There's a new thread over at XDA with a method that supposedly anyone, including those with leaked updates, can root their Eris. It involves a lot of command line typing and the initial followers were running into a lot of mistakes but it now appears that the instructions are updated and I saw one person who's gotten root.

Positive is, no stupid inserting/removing the SD card with some voodoo-magic timing req'd.

Motorola Droid X :: APP - ROOT - Keyboard - Keyboard Manager - Dual Keyboard - Portrait - Landscape Switch

Nov 10, 2010

I tried it and it works so far.

Dev = ne0fhyk from XDA.

From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers

Verbage:

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

Requirements:
- Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1)
- Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.

To install:
1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard.
2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app
3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below:
-- User: 'Read/Write' checked
--Group: 'Read' checked
--Others: 'Read' checked
4- Exit Root Explorer

The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'

Update:
- Added option to disable notification icon
-' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion

Bugs:
-On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.

The app is still in development.

HTC Desire :: How To Make Google Navigation More Reliable?

Jun 22, 2010

Need some advice, google maps and navigation never quite takes me to the right place, close too it but never quite there. Now near location is okay for something free, but its usually that last wee bit that you need more than anything, instead of you coming to an estate and it tells you its on the left hand side, which is the whole estate. I read in a thread here someplace about another free sat-nav that Im sure was for another phone type, but then someone in one of the other phone forums gave everyone a link into that forum to show how it works. Anyone know what I am talking about ? (most folks never do and they know me lol) or anyone know how to make the google navigation more reliable?

HTC Droid Eris :: Need To Have Reliable Sound Device?

Dec 30, 2009

1. reliability - I see lots of complaints about the Eris but it seems that this is a good phone.. so many good reviews! is this a reliable sound device? ( I am an IT guy so i can handle some problems / glitches )
2. reception - heres the thing.. i live in southern Maine, we currently have two Motorola phones on the USCC network. Somehow despite having good coverage in our area our home is a dead spot for USCC and ATT. My parents have Verizon phones which have a moderate signal ( 2+ bars ).Will the Driod Eris have a descent signal if my parents phone does okay... i am aware i can turn off the mobile network to allow for 1x signal.. ( if i am correct )

HTC Desire :: Reliable Method To Quickly Reboot

Oct 21, 2010

Is to enable Bluetooth Discoverable mode! In about 80% of all cases it will first hang and then - about 5 seconds later - it reboots.

Only directly after such a reboot one can set the phone discoverable without fear of another crash. Terrific!

Is there any place where could one report that bug, where Google and/or HTC would be listening?

HTC Incredible :: Good And Reliable Sources For Apps?

Jul 19, 2010

Where do people obtain or buy all the apps that are supposed to be out for these phones? I did some Google searches & more & am still a bit puzzled. Those of us past 30 and don't spend half our lives on line can get a little puzzled.

What are some good and reliable sources for apps? I can't see wanting more than a few as I view it as a phone & occasional internet tool. A few games, widgets and the like might be good, too.
