Android :: Paid Technical Support Program For Developers?

Apr 6, 2009

I develop Android appliations for a living.As always, we have a very short time to get a finished product out the door and we're relying on the Android to be one of our flagship phones.I've got no time for "phone exploration" or hobbying around. I need technical information, and IN PARTICULAR, information about the hard problems.The easy problems that everyone writes about is not helpful for what I need. I want to be able to pick up the phone and call someone on the Google development team to get some quick answers and information that's not found in the documentation, (which by the way has more holes in it than the moon has craters). And, I'm willing to pay for the kind of support I need. I can even visit Google peeps at the development lab in Kirkland.I can make the case to my boss for paying for this kind of live support, but I can't make the case that "I just can't do stuff" on the Android. What I need has GOT to be done and quick.And I need quick technical information.

Games :: Gameloft Technical Support

May 19, 2010

I see a circular pattern emerging. I'm not even annoyed - I just think it's hilarious. Hopefully the lack of non-bot-like response means they're working hard on solving the current problems and looking at better delivery methods.

Android :: Developers Stop Posting Paid Apps On Android Market

Feb 27, 2009

As Google's current support for paid apps in the Android Market is limited to the US market only (and even on the US market, would not support ADP1 phone), I really think you guys should stop posting your apps in there. Please make yourself a favor being able to reach the whole world and post your apps on androidgear or SlideMe or handango.

Does anyone know if the Nexus One that Google is sending developers as part of the Device Seeding Program is different from the ones people get when they order them from Google's website?

Android :: Google Support Number For Droid's Sent To Developers From Google?

Jun 23, 2010

A few months ago Google sent top market developers a feww phone (Droid or Nexus).I was one of them and received a Droid.I just now called in to activate the Droid on my Verizon account and was told that it is not activated.They said that the ESN number is tied to a business account and currently active.Verizon said the only thing I can do is to contact Google, who sent me the phone, and work it out with them.The paperwork with the phone came with no numbers or email addresses.I have tried calling the Nexus support line, they could not direct me anywhere. I have tried emailing the automated robots that sent me emails about the phone.Is there anyone at Google that I can contact that would be able to help with this?

Android :: Sleep Mode - Technical Documentation?

Jun 23, 2010

I'm trying to find some official android documentation that discusses sleep mode, with a focus on issues that might be of relevance to app developers. For example, things like:

1. What causes a device to enter / exit sleep mode?
2. How are running processes impacted when the device enters sleep mode? (I believe they continue to exist, but don't execute because cpu activity is suspended. When the device wakes up execution picks up where it left off?)

There is some good info in the API docs for PowerManager and WakeLock, but nothing there that explicitly states what I have assumed in point 2 above. Are the above issues (and any other relevant issues) documented anywhere?

Android :: How Distribute Paid Application / When Paid Market Is Not Available?

Feb 22, 2010

this question is now obsolete, as Android Market includes much more countries and such services as PayPal Mobile Payments Library are available.I'd like to sell my Android application, but I live in Poland and in my country* Android Market supports only free apps (we cannot sell and we cannot buy too).What is the best way to sell application in such situation? I can accept PayPal money transfers, but I don't know how to distribute APK package without exposing it to getting pirated. Did someone tried it already and succeeded? you may be surprised, paid apps are supported only in 12 countries worldwide.

HTC Eris :: Notification For Unread Mail - Pretty Technical Launcher Pro

Sep 1, 2010

I'm running xtr with LP Pro. Really like the setup and especially the dock at the bottom from LP. I have Phone, Mail, App Drawer, SMS, and GMail on my dock. I spend 80% of my time there in the Mail app as my Eris is primarily a work device for me, and my company uses Exchange. My issue is this, under Menu > Preferences, there are settings to turn on notification for Unread Gmail, Unread SMS, and Missed Calls. These notifications are down on the dock, not in the top notification bar. It's nice to have those three, but what I really need is the notification for Unread Mail (like the Sense icon has). I've been bouncing around the Launcher Pro website and came across somebody asking for exactly the same thing. In post #5 a user talks about using SDK to code it in manually via adb, and he's even provided the code. Here's the link, have a look: LauncherPro Forum - View topic - Unread count not updating home page. I've done a Nand backup of my current configuration. Would I be an idiot to try this? Can mere mortals like me do something like this? I'm curious to hear what the good and bad to this would be.

Android :: Looking For Few Co Developers

Apr 2, 2009

I am looking for some fellow developers to build a few applications that work together to allow the android phone to take advantage of cheap telephony services provided over the internet. These are sms, voip, calling cards and similar such services.I have been investigating this quite a bit and developing an app to work with PennyTel but i have discovered an issue with the Android OS. Android is not designed to let you replace low level systems in your app and there for there is no way to capture out going sms etc. This means that to write an app that sends all out going sms via pennytel is impossible and that the only way around this is to write your own sms client like ChompSMS and i am sure this will apply to other parts of the phone as well.What i am looking to do is make a reusable system that uses intents to do things. A complete sms application that uses an intent to send the sms so that more sms providers can be added later, a dialer and outgoing call system that will fire an event for another app to make the call etc.What I want is sever apps that use intents not just to open their app but also to choose the outgoing their service uses. personally i want to write one of the outgoing paths and i am looking for some developers who would be interested in writing the more front end apps like the dialer and sms applications.If anyone is interested let me know as it is just too much work for one person and i am sure your apps will be used by many people as more and more people could right services they could be hooked into.

Android :: Hiding App Developers

Jul 17, 2010

Is there any way of hiding specific app developers that you don't link on the market?
E.g. if one developer has made thousands of sound board apps or themes for an app that I won't be using - I could hide that developer and wouldn't see his/her apps on the market?

If this is possible, I think it would make the market much less annoying when you have to scroll through hundreds of sound boards and app themes.

Android :: Catch 22 For Developers?

Mar 4, 2010

This would be some excellent support for the faithful Android developers. I have eight apps but live in Canada so I haven't been permitted to post them on the Market yet. Still I'm hoping Google might take this into account for Canadian developers who can't yet meet the sales criteria. I applied anyway and hope Google will respond so I can begin mobile testing.

I haven't taken the plunge to root, and not sure if I will and the instructions for screen shot on Droid are basically chinese to me because I have no skill when it comes to this sorta thing.I just want an app that will take a screenshot without root.People like me would pay for an app like this. You could make killer money guys, come on!

Android :: Life After G1 / Upgrade Developers Phones?

Oct 13, 2010

I've been using the G1 for a while now and have been quite happy with it except that it only goes up to 1.6. In order to develop on 2.1 and beyond, I need to upgrade to a newer phone. I'd like to continue it using the new dev phone as my personal phone as well which limits it to AT&T for me. Seems like my only choices, according to, are nexus one, samsung captivate or HTC aria. Are all 3 good developers phones? Should I look for an unlocked droid instead? The nexus looks great but at it's a bit steep considering I'll probably need an android tablet for development as well soon. BTW, any thoughts on what would be a good developers tablet and when they might be available.

Also, does AdMob or Google AdSense generate more money?

Android :: Marketing Resources For Mobile App Developers

Nov 16, 2010

I know this is a developer site. BUT, and I think the moderators and fellow responders would agree: developers these days are usually also the people that market their product. Especially if you're an independent one-man-team like myself. So I think this can be a relevant question on stackoverflow: I'm wondering what resources you have used to promote and market your mobile app? Or if you can give some tips or recommendations, links, etc?

Android : How To Search Mulitple Developers In Market

Feb 3, 2010

I am adding a menu option in my newest application that will allow users to view all of our other applicatiosn we've published to the market place. The problem we are having is we created a second more business like developer account, but want to let users also see all of our old apps. I know how to have the search point to one developer, i.e. pub:<developer name>, but does anyone know of a way to have it search multiple? So that when they click the button all the apps from the older developer we had along with the newer business developer we created?

Android : Able To Block Certain Developers From Showing In Market?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm just browsing the market on my phone and every few games down there are utterly shite apps from a developer called "Aroma planning" which are pictures of women which you are supposed to touch.

I'd love a feature where you could block every app from that developer but I wouldn't know how or who to contact to ask if it could be implimented.
As far as I know, the Market isn't a part of the open source components in Android and is Google's property but does anyone know if there is a contact email address for the android market developers so I could ask if such a feature could be added?

If I see another miniskirt touch game by that arsehole I'll probably end up snapping my nexus one in rage.

Edit: Doh, the feature requests forum is here: Feature Requests / Suggestions - Android Market

Sprint HTC Hero :: Technical Difference Between 2.1 ROM On Hero With 1.5

Jan 26, 2010

OK so this was in regards to me talking to my buddy about trying to get Google Goggles to work on my 1.5 Hero since it already works on his 1.6 MyTouch.I know that the Roms are all different but one thing I just can't get.What is the technical difference between a 2.1 ROM on a Hero with 1.5, and a 2.1 ROM on a Hero with 2.1?I know the ROMs now are based on 1.5 themselves so they run well on the Hero, but they are messing with 2.1 ROMs, and I'm not sure what that means when it's "based" (or is it based, I don't get that part) on a 1.5 OS on the Hero.I apologize for not being able to word this well, hopefully you guys understand it.The conclusion obviously would also be if someone makes a 1.6 ROM then that should either technically run Google Goggles (just like running apps2sd), or since it's based on our Hero's 1.5, is this not correct?
