Android :: Providing Updates To Unpublished Application - Old Users

Aug 19, 2010

providing updates to unpublished application( old users)

Lets say we have a PAID app - "x-some". 1000+ users downloaded and using it, before 28-Feb-2010. we stopped for some reason from 01-march-2010, by "unpublishing the app" from market.

however, we found some bug in x-some and want to fix it and also to be available to only 1000+ users who already downloaded it. We dont want this app to be seen by new users. Only old users( who downloaded this paid app), should be able to view it and download the new fix.

I am looking for the best way to provide an audible speech component for my Android application (Eliza Mobile Therapist game). Is the Android TTS (text-to-speech) API viable at this time? I want to call a function from my Java code with the spoken text and hear it (hopefully in different voices/dialects) on the phone. Is this technology currently possible?

Android :: Data / Statistics Tracking For Users In Application

Sep 14, 2010

I have a listview populated by a text file hosted on my website that is parsed and made into separate list items. Each list item sends the user to a new activity to view more information on that item. My question is - how do I go about tracking the following data about my application..

# of views of the whole listview
# of unique views of the listview
# of times each list item is clicked
# of unique clicks of each list item

Android :: Good Way To Register Users From Phone Application

Jul 22, 2009

We have a web application and we've built phone applications (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry) to be companions to the site. The usual workflow is that an existing user of the site gets a phone app and then plugs their existing credentials into the phone app and they are off and running, but more often now we are seeing folks who are downloading the app and then (and this should not surprise anyone) don't read the help screen that explains they need to go and get credentials at the web site and therefore cannot connect to the application which does require registration to manage their content. This is a giant usability fail condition.

So we know that we need to put user registration workflows on the phone app. Other than the obvious solution of duplicating our registration page on the mobile, does anyone know of a better identity solution for the phone? For example, on the desktop we also use Facebook Connect as an identity server and the users love it. I'm looking for something that simple that we can implement across the major smartphone platforms.
Clarifying note: I should add here that this registration mechanism is likely to; and it would be desirable if it did, go hand in hand with a general identity/authorization mechanism such as the Facebook mechanism mentioned below. One other place I'm poking around is to see whether there's an openId solution that does not require a browser to pop up.

Android :: Add To Menu Using AddIntent Options Providing For A Single Activity

Oct 7, 2010

I want to use addIntentOptions to drive my menus when ever possible. This seems the cleanest way to provide them. Rather than explicitly detailing activities, simply ask for a menu listing all the activities which are available for my data item.So I'm trying to put together a context menu for a List View. It works great. Only problem is that I have an activity that has two intents that consume my data type, and only the first shows up.The activity in question in Android Manifest.xml
<activity android:name=".ui.MyActivity" android:label="The title">
<intent-filter android:label="First context label">
<action android:name="com.sample.action.FIRST_ACTION" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.ALTERNATIVE" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.SELECTED_ALTERNATIVE" />
<data android:scheme="myscheme" />
<intent-filter android:label="Second context label">
<action android:name="com.sample.action.SECOND_ACTION" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.ALTERNATIVE" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.SELECTED_ALTERNATIVE" />
<data android:scheme="myscheme" />

HTC Hero :: Car Charger Not Providing Enough Charge

Aug 3, 2010

I recently received my Hero's upgrade to 2.1 and have been very happy with the Google Navigation software! However, it's an obviously big drain on the battery, what with requiring GPS and all, so I bought a generic USB car charger from eBay for 99p. It does indeed charge the phone, but not fast enough! I even get an error on the screen telling me that the charge is not enough to stop my battery level falling.

So my question is, are all usb chargers the same? I notice it's also a very slow charge from the PC too and takes a few hours to charge the phone, whereas it only takes 45 mins or so from a wall socket. Can anyone confirm that if I spent ?20 on a 'decent' car charger it will charge fast enough to actually charge the phone while using Google Navigation?..............

Android :: Off-Market Application Updates

Jun 24, 2010

I am curious about the procedure for updating an app that was acquired off the market. Do you simply install over your existing app? And if so, what happens to your existing data?Is there a way to tie your installed apps to the market, so it can automatically check for updates? Any information is appreciated.

Android :: Provide Updates For Application?

Apr 13, 2010


I'm planning to use my website to provide updates for my android application whenever the user decides to perform an update( in case there is one available) . I'm thinking to use http requests for the communication between the user and the server, so whenever there is a new update the server sents back to the user the link to download the apk of the update through the android browser. So far I think it should work !?!. But once I have the apk of the new update on the card ,and the installed old version of the application how do I actually perform the update ?

Android :: MVC - Application Or Service For Asynchronous Updates

Jul 3, 2010

I have data that is to be refreshed from the Internet. Let's call it Model.

What I want to do: Basically it sounds like an MVC model, where the Model is also kept persistent in local (private) storage. The Model and its associated methods are application-wise. There are several Activity's that display and manipulate different aspects of it:

navigates across different Activity's
that display Model
from different perspectives. Currently I have a ListActivity for all elements, and an Activity for one element's details
Sometimes Model needs refreshing.
Surely this is done on a different thread. Refreshing can be triggered from several Activity's.
There are several (time consuming) common
tasks that can be triggered from different Activity's
My application loads and saves Model
to private storage when it starts
and stops

My problem: I'm not sure where to put Model and the related tasks in. Also, I don't know what mechanism to use to notify Activity's. Currently I come up with 2 approaches:

Use Service and send broadcasts. Saving to disk is performed in Service#onDestroyed(), so I want to minimize that by binding it to Activity's. At this point, I'm also not sure how to deliver the updated information: whether to provide a getter in Binder, or include that in the broadcast message.
Customize the Application object so that refreshing methods and getters are available globally. I then perform update from Activity's using AsyncTask. If there are other Activity's that are behind the current Activity, they will update in onResume() when the user navigates back.

Reasons I'm not using a class with static methods:

I need to save and store Model to disk. Some of the methods need a Context for displaying toasts, notifications, caching, etc.

Also, I don't put these functionalities in an Activity because there are several activities that manipulate the same piece of persistent data.

Below are pseudocode illustrating what I mean:

Using Service:


Make the functionality globally accessible in the custom Application object


Weaknesses I can think of for the Service approach is complexity, since Binding is asynchronous. And it's very likely that I have to repeat some code because I have both ListActivity and Activity

For the Application approach, the documentation says not to rely on onTerminate() being called.

Android :: Handle Application Versions/updates

Mar 1, 2010

I'm pretty new to Android, and I had some questions that I've had trouble getting answered via the web. I have done a few searches, but I'm not sure how to word my question, either. So I apologize if this has already been covered somewhere...but here it goes. I was wanting to know how the Android handles application versions/ updates. Specifically, does an update blow away my database? Is there a way to preserve the users' settings as well?

Android :: Application Widget - How To Manage Updates?

Nov 8, 2009

In the process of creating an AppWidget which displays data from a remote host, I am looking for documentation about how to manage updates. Are there articles somewhere about how and when querrying remote data is the most appropriate? I am wondering if we have to explicitly code the remote queries in a separate thread, or even do it in a separate service, to avoid freezes of the home screen (this happens a lot on my htc magic).

Android :: Android Application For Users To Add Items To List / How To Sort?

Feb 18, 2010

I have an Android app where users can add items to a list, and I'd like them to be able to re-order the items in the list however they want (as opposed to just offering them different sort orders). It's easy enough to add a position setting for the items (they come from the DB) but what kind of UI elements are available for the user to indicate the desired ordering?

Is there a pattern anyone has seen implemented for this? I have not seen anything on Android that does anything like this, except the home screen which is similar but looks a little bit beyond my expertise at this point. The best I can think of is to use a long click and context menu to "move up" or "move down".

Android :: Unable To Install Application / Updates On Unrooted Desire

Sep 29, 2010

I seen to have a problem installing and updating pretty much all apps from the market. I am running anbranded and unrooted desire on 2.2. I have successfully downloaded nearly 50 apps from the market but recently it doesn't seem to install any apps including updates. I did find one that was ok (retro camera which I tried just to see) but it wont update sppedview, folder organizer lite or quick system info pro. It also doesn't seem to want to let me install quite a few other apps that I have tried (some alarm apps and some poker ones).

Android :: Follow Up For Active Install Count - Application Updates

Oct 8, 2010

We wanted to follow-up. By now, you should have noticed that the installs metrics for your applications have been restored. We identified the problem as occurring with application updates only, have made some changes recently that should resolve and prevent this problem. Please let us know if this error persists.

If we can assist you further, please let us know. In my case, things have not changed at all. Downloads are increasing (1550) and active installs stabilized at 29% (the value before the drop was 44/45%). So, indeed active installs are increasing again - 29% is stable since three weeks - but the original percentage was not restored. Now, I don't know what to think... Maybe the problem is not solved, maybe in my specific case the active installs really dropped for a while (but it's curious that it only happened for a while...). BTW, I didn't release any new upgrade since then (I have a new one almost ready, but I'm beyond schedule because of personal problems) - and maybe the count would fix itself with new upgrades...

What would you do now? Is there anybody else for which the problem was not solved?

Which i'm fine with but, as i'm not connected to a WiFi, it uses my mobile internet to connect and find these "updates" which starts eating my phone credit. I'm tired of leaving it. In a matter of days my phone credit is gone.
