Mar 23, 2010

I've only distributed a few apps by sending .apk files around.I was wondering how Android Market prevents users from distributing a paid application to other people.

Android :: Some Users Can't See My Location Limited Droid App In Market / Why?

Jun 27, 2010

I have published an app on Android Market which is limited to Norway. I'm able to find and install it myself from Market, as can several other Norwegian users. A colleague (Android 2.1) and a friend (Android 1.6), on the other hand, cannot find it. They both have phones bought in Norway, with SIM cards from Norwegian providers.

Why are some Norwegian users able to find it, and others not? How does Google determine the location of Market users?

The app works on Android phones with v1.5+.

Android :: Updated Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement?

Apr 24, 2009

I'm sorry I know this is slightly off-topic, but since there is no group about the market... When I'm logging in to the Market console, I'm asked to agree with the "updated Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement".Is there any info/announcement anywhere highlighting and explaining the differences with the previous agreement?

I work at the UPS sprint distribution building in Louisville, KY. I gather some of the items in an order to get ready for shipping, and there have been 0 orders seen by me (out of thousands) for either the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G and the HTC Evo 4G?

Android :: App Ad-hoc Distribution And Code Signing

Jul 16, 2010

Is there a way to code-sign (to allow it to open only on a device with specific ID) your Android app when using ad-hoc distribution (sending app to testers or clients as a subcontractor)?I know I can share apk file pretty easily, but what if I don't want other people to redistribute the app before it is ready? I don't want testers to be able to distribute not finished and buggy version of my app for example. Or I would like to show my client the final version of the app, but not allow them to distribute it until the payment is made.

Android :: Polite Discussion Of Lite / Trial Vs Pro Distribution

Mar 19, 2009

First I will explain my situation.Then, I would greatly appreciate constructive dialog on how other developers feel similar situations should be managed.I wrote a simple app in November.I offered it for free on the Market for two reasons.One, Google hadn't implemented paid apps yet, so I had no choice.Two, by my own admission, v1.0 was too simple too garner payment.However, in the app's documentation, I requested donations toward future development.Out of thousands of installs, I received nothing.This week I finished a considerably fancier version of the program. Given hundreds of hours of unpaid development, I decided to charge a few bucks for the new version.I split the app into lite and pro versions.The lite version has all the new fancy features enabled but is limited in how large a document can be created (spread sheet, I limited the number of rows/cols, admittedly unlimited in the earlier version). The pro version went to Market as a new app, the lite version on top of the old app to retain the long feedback history.

Since the Market provides no way to downgrade, I put the old unlimited version on my website and put directions in the new lite version in multiple places explaining how to revert to the old version.Thus, any user dissatisfied with the rol/col limit could restore the EXACT functionality they had before upgrading to the lite version.Incidentally, the 325 character blurb allotted on the Market was insufficient to list the new features and the lite version's limitation and the caveat that the lite version could be reverted through my website.I simply could not communicate these facts to users to help them decide whether to upgrade or what to expect after upgrading.

The complaints about the new lite version have been diverse.Most pertinent to this discussion are complaints that the lite version now limits the rows/cols where the previous version didn't.I find such complaints unjustifiable since I explicitly permit reversion.I literally don't see what they have to complain about. Another irksome genre of complaints is that the program is still too simple to ask any money for at all. I am infuriated. It costs less than an ice cream cone.So, as discussion, how would other developers handle this situation: initial app is simple so offered for free,later version is complex so split into lite/pro. You don't want to limit the lite version by not showing the new fancy features, so the limitation must be something else, a time limit, a forced delay splash screen, something.I chose limited rows/cols on a spreadsheet app, but also permitted reversion to the old unlimited version.

Android :: Application Distribution For Closed User Group

Feb 3, 2009

A customer asked me to create an android application for their internal use. Essentially it would some sort of mobile terminal for a special chemistry database.It doesn't make any sense, to distribute this application via "Android Market" since it is only useful for special users and payment wont be done per installation but for the whole contract.Is there any other way to distribute android apps besides the market? Maybe by putting them on a web page? Any hints appreciated since i couldn't find anything on the web.

Android :: Required Minimum Distribution Calculation Not Working

Nov 13, 2010

I am trying to make an app for the Android that does RMD calculations. The program, however, keeps giving 0.0.

I think that my problem lies in this code:


I tried using .equals(), but it complained that I was trying to dereference the long value. Also, I am aware that java.util.Date is deprecated, but I don't want to try the other classes. From my first Android app, I figured out the "==" does not work, but I am not sure what to do here.

I have verified that the input for a balance and the birthdate values were accepted, so that is how I limited it to this particular class.

When our systems go down here at work (email) our phones stop working for email communication, and I have staff that freak out when this happens.My CFO would like me to send a TEXT to all our staff (Teams) that are in the field to let them know our Internet is down. Now all these Teams have their phone numbers in our Global Address book of Exchange.But I would like to be able to access it easily on my phone as selecting a group and it sends everyone in that group a text.Been working on this for the last 2 hours and can't find a way to do this.I also tried adding a separate group for contacts in Outlook 2010 for Exchange, and it won't show up on my EVO either.

Android :: OnTouchEvent Limited To 36x / Second?

Jan 12, 2010

I've been pulling my hair out trying to achieve smooth scrolling in an OpenGL-based app on Eclair. It seems that no matter what I do, I cannot get more than 36 events per second (the rest is sent in history data which is useless in my case). This happens on both the emulator and the Motorola Milestone.Is this a hardcoded limit or am I doing something wrong? I'm implementing onTouchEvent on the activity and recording how many events are received per second and then send that info through Log.v to Eclipse. I also tried implementing onTouchEvent on the view instead of the activity and the results are the same.

Android :: Background Processes Not Being CPU-limited?

Apr 19, 2010

We were told that, as of Android 1.6, background processes were put in a Linux process scheduling class that limited how much CPU they would use. A few weeks ago, I ran a benchmark test that seemed to validate this claim.I have run more tests, and I am no longer confident in my earlier conclusion. I can get a background process to significantly impact the foreground process, more than would seem to be possible if the background process was, indeed, CPU-limited.

Android :: Google Map View Limited To Region?

May 11, 2010

I've seen a lot of applications that utilize this view, but in my region (Israel) it seems to show a different view than what the Google Maps application shows. Google Maps shows everything you would expect from Google Maps except street view. However map view does not. It never shows streets and details, just a big blotch of gray. Satellite view works, but not with the best resolution the Maps application offers.Can anyone point me to documentation of this matter?

Android :: Dealing With Very Limited Data Plan

Nov 16, 2010

I'm new to Android platform but not new to software development. We want (in our company) to create Android software to compliment our truck management software. Basically, it will do couple very specific tasks.

a. Send GPS updates to server.
b. Receive trip information.
c. Send pickup/delivery confirmation to server.

After evaluating i.e. platform and Windows phone 7 platform we came to conclusion that only Android has multitasking that works for us. So, Android it is but I have some specific questions.

1. Data plan we want to use will be very limited. Probably 5M/mo and no voice/text. I figured 5x1024x1024 = 5242280 bytes will give me 1k per transmission every 15 minutes (3000 transmissions per mo). It will leave 2M for other stuff that will happens every couple of days. Does my math look OK or there is lot of "waste" traffic? Our server going to be XML SOAP and messages sent will be just Lon/Lat in XML package. 1K will be OK? If I just calculate bytes it will be even less but I wonder if there is "minimum" packet size, etc. Any insight on this data limitation appreciated.

2. Because of #1 we need to "lock" device somehow so there is no other software that uses network. Possible? If so, what do I need to look for? I found already created app - firewall and it says phone has to be rooted for that.

3. Receiving trip information. What's the best way to accomplish that given my situation? Should I run some kind of listener? Will my phone have IP address or something? Or should I get small text plan and use that for this specific functionality? Can I receive text message in my own application?

So, as you see we trying to shrink $80/mo service to $15/mo service that will do big savings to our company but not sure if it's all possible with constraints we have. Also, we may just give discounts to drivers who have Android phone and will install our app but we don't count on that.

Android :: Git For Peer To Peer Content Distribution Network

Aug 4, 2010

Is there anyone using git in such a fashion? I would like to distribute some multimedia content from a server to some Android remote devices. I would like them sending back a log file with device usage statistics (provided by an android app I will write). The server could be anything but I would prefer a linux box. I thought that since git handle and sych only differences between files, It would be a nice tool for this purpose and I would have content revision history as a bonus. I need some piece of advice on how the repositories architecture could be organized: does It have to be a star topology or something different? The remote end of the sistem don't need any interactivity, in other words the remote git repository could pull and push whatever It needs to, autonomously and automatically.

UPDATE: I've found here on SO the author of git internals (I'm downloading It right now), Scott Chacon talking about the architecture I would like to implement.
UPDATE 2: OK I read the chapter about "Non-SCM uses of Git" and here is what the author says about a Peer to Peer CDN:.....

Android :: Froyo 2.2 Updated - Search Button Only Limited To 3 Options

Aug 12, 2010

Just updated my HTC desire to froyo. So far I am loving the chrome2phone features and the wonders of mobile hotspot. Everything seems faster in rendering and processing. Also I am using dolphin browser and its a great browser compare to our stock. 1 word - tabs. Just wanna share 1 noticeable difference that kinda made me disappointed.

Our search button.
Back in 2.1. Our search button searches everything, from people contact, internet, maps, music etc. Now the search button only limited to well even tho there are 3 options. All, Web, App. If u choose web, it searches the web. If u choose App, it goes to market app. If u choose All, it just went to the web. Now if I want to search for people contact. i have to open people app then click the search button. If I want to search something in my email, I have to open mail app then click the search button. Seriously, tho 2.2 is really impressive with the features. Losing the old search functionality is. Well I have to click twice to get to what I want...
Now 2.2 people app> search button=profit
then 2.1 search button= profit.

Android : Advice For A Free Lance Programmer With Limited Experience?

Sep 15, 2010

I have one year of experience in programming. After getting laid off in cuts I managed to get a job in telecommunications planning. I'm good at my new job and don't want to leave it but I miss programming. I'd like to be able to code in my free time (which is about 4 hours every evening 7 days a week.)

I can code pretty well in C#, reasonably well in SQL and poorly in a unix shell.

What sort of job should I get on the side? Would anyone hire me as a free lancer? Should I focus on making apps for phones (android) instead?

Android :: Make A Trial Version Which Starts A Limited Amount Of Times?

Nov 8, 2010

I want to make a trial version, where the application functionality works a limited amount of times. The consumer will then be given the option to buy the complete version on Android market. How can I implement that?

I could write some info to the sdcard after each start of the app and then read that info on the next start or reinstallation of the app. But would that work? This thread :

says that there's no 100% sure way to keep someone from reusing a trial version. That seems strange. It is possible to make a functionable trial version in J2ME with the RecordStore class. Why shouldn't this be possible in Android?
