HTC Incredible :: Gesture Search Is A Battery Hog When Set For Flip To Open

Aug 22, 2010

Gesture Search (by Google) is a battery hog. My Seidio 1750 battery (a replacement and brand new) was draining a lot quicker than the one it was exchanged for, so after having it on for most of the day I decided to see what was causing the drain.

Gesture Search used the most battery out of all of the processes and it had the least amount of actual use. With my battery at around 70% after 12 hours (not much actual use today), Gesture Search had 47% of the battery use (the next highest being cell standby at 17%) and the actual time it was in use was 1m38s.

I don't know why that would be except that it has to always be running in the background (when setup for flip to open) and that maybe the cause of the battery drain. I'm going to set it to only open from the application shortcut and see if that alleviates the excessive battery drain. I'll let you know what I find.

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Search Contects In Gesture Search?

Jul 23, 2010

I wanted to put this in the droid X section because the default way of searching contacts is horrible. I installed gesture search last night and now one of my few gripes with the phone is solved. I hated having to having to hold the options button to bring up a keyboard and then having to clear my last entry to start another search.

The reason - to use swipepad for another gesture.

HTC Droid Eris :: Homescreen Flip Clock Doesn't Flip

Jan 11, 2010

I have the giant clock/weather widget on my homescreen (the one that comes on the phone when you first get it and the one most people probably use). I have seen animations of this clock on the HTC site that show the digits flipping over. And you would think it would do that anyway based on the design. However, I noticed my doesn't really flip. The digits just change instantaneously. No flipping animation. Is this just mine or is that how it is? I was actually hoping it would flip because I always thought it looked neat.

Motorola Droid :: Contacts Search Doesn't Open Soft Keyboard

Aug 23, 2010

While in the Phone/Contacts app, I LOVE the search button to open the contacts search box. However, when I press the button, it doesn't automatically open the soft keyboard and I have to first press in the input box. Is there any way to make it automatically open the soft keyboard? It's not a major issue, but it's a slight nuisance. I'm running a rooted Droid with Froyo (FRG01B, manually updated).

Motorola Milestone :: Long Press Search Doesn't Work With Hardware Keyboard Open

Jun 30, 2010

On my UK Milestone (rooted), long press on the search button only works when the hardware keyboard is shut, when the keyboard is open, long press works the same as a short press.

While looking for a fix for this, I found very little information on the net, so I'm wondering if it's a problem with only selected devices. Can anyone confirm for me if theirs works or not?

I have OpenSearch assigned to long press search, and since I always use the hardware keyboard, I need to close it, long press search, then open the keyboard. It's annoying.

I've looked at editing the qwerty.kl file in /system/user/keylayout, my idea was to try to redefine to search key on the keyboard (between left alt and @) to launch OpenSearch, but it apears that I can only redefine keys to other keys that way, not launch apps.

Android :: When Open Browser "Voice Search" Stops Responding / How To Start

Feb 2, 2010

I have a Motorola Droid; today the Voice Search stopped working. I've not installed or even updated anything, have not changed any setting in any app anywhere- but it sticks on "Speak Now." Hitting Cancel makes it stop, but killing all apps and restarting didn't help, and problem continues. Any ideas of where to even start?

PS- the problem occurs when I have the browser open.

Jelly Bean :: App Search - Battery Charge Notification Via Email

Oct 23, 2013

I've a couple of Android devices, and I'm looking for an application that will email me (once) when the battery is full, (or when the battery is almost dead).

I don't always stick around when it's charging, so having it just make a sound when it's full doesn't catch my attention. Being notified with an email before my device's battery dies, would catch it and recharge, before I have to do a long recharge session.

Email just works best for me. I've checked around, and it doesn't seem that an app like this is out there. Having a notification via prowl/growl could work too, but less so than email.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Phone Randomly Open Apps In Background At All Times / This Will Affect Battery Life?

Nov 11, 2010

Just got my D2 yesterday after spending way too long with the Eris... so far I'm loving it, but I have one question: do everyone's phones seem to randomly open 10-20 apps in background at all times? These aren't even apps I use, like a Sudoku game I haven't tried once yet. I'm not too worried about it, since performance seems to be fine, but I'm wondering if this will affect battery life.

HTC Incredible :: No Search Capabilities

Jun 1, 2010

I'm a long-time palm user, and a very new Android convert! But as a palm user, I've enjoyed the ability to search everything on the palm...notes fields, addresses, etc., as well as names and phone numbers. So no matter what piece of information you recall about something, there is a way to find it. Is there a way to do this with Android? So far, the only thing I've been able to find is a not-much-downloaded app called "aurora". It says it does that but does not. Mostly it searches the web. I'm an old fart, and my memory is not what it used to be, so I need the search app to become my "brains in a box".
