Before, when I pressed the search button (the one with the magnifying glass) it cued up the google search bar. Now, after theming, the search button does nothing from the homescreen, but does still work while in applications, the browser, the market, etc. I am running launcher pro, deodexed w/ revolution.

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.

Android :: Geocoder And Location Search

Jul 8, 2010

In my application, we allow users to add locations. So far, we have been using the Geocoder class to let users search for different locations. For the most part, this works quite well. However, there are some issues we have been running into and I'm not sure what we can do to fix them.

Some searches (such as "moscow") return nothing when I feel you should definitely be getting a result for this. Other searches (such as "que") give very poor results and not the ones you would expect. However, if I use the Google maps application and run these same searches, I get results as I would expect.

I would really like my app to give search results like the maps application! My guess is that since the maps application is developed by Google, they are using some search functionality not available to the rest of us developers. Unless I'm missing something?

How to get better search results?

Android :: Simple Web Search Based On Location ?

Jan 17, 2010

This is what I am trying to do: simple app to get list of addresses I am interested in based on my current location.

I get the current location using location services. Now, based on this current location I want to do a search on business places without really using the SearchManager's triggerSearch. The problem with the triggerSearch is that it launches the googlemap and show the business address I am looking for and it is blocked. I want to get the control back. I do not want to launch the map with the listing. all I want to do is the get the Geopoint of the business address I am interested in using a simple web search. I tried reverseGeocoding , but it is does not work with business address. It needs full address. any suggestion?.

Simply put, all I want to do is a simple websearch , say query="whole foods, los gatos, CA" to get its full address. and then use it to get the GeoPoint.

Motorola Droid :: Location Bug

Jul 21, 2010

For some reason my location on my phone keeps moving me to Portland... I'm in AZ. I have it set up to find location with GeoLocation. Not sure what the problem could be as I don't see a WiFi or Cell Antenna from Portland being able to communicate with my phone. This is effecting everything that uses location (Maps, Beautiful Widgets, Juice Defender, etc.).

I am running CM 6 rc1 and the Droid X theme. I just noticed it yesterday and I haven't had the problem before.

HTC Droid Eris :: Wrong Location / Location Unavailable

Jul 2, 2010

i've had my phone about 3 weeks now. up until last week, the htc weather widget would update to my current location. when i was home, it would show the town i live in. i also had the google internet option to use my location and this would also work perfectly until last sunday.now, the weather location was stuck on miami no matter where i went (as far north as west palm beach) and the internet shows up 'location unavailable'. i have found out that the gps is picking up where i am in goggle maps but it seems that the cell towers are not as far as weather and internet location are concerned. i have tried all of the obvious settings.i did a factory reset and now my weather says ft lauderdale which is closer to me but still not my town. it does not update (manually either) as i move. the internet location still says location unavailable although for a fleeting minute after the factory reset, it DID locate me....then it was gone so i called verizon, they didn't have a clue. then i took it to the store and it turns out EVERY phone the tech tried in the store had the same problem, including his. he told me it was a google problem and there was nothing he could do about it. i felt if i tried explaining how that would make it a verizon problem as well, it would be a losing battle

Motorola Droid :: Search Key Not Working / Fix It

Oct 25, 2010

Running SS 4.8 on my Droid and cannot use the search button on the front. I get the haptic feedback and then nothing happens. If I long press it I can use the voice search but without this I am honestly tempted to go back to stock. Does anyone know how to re-associate the button properly? Rooting has been fun and all but the headache is starting to far outweigh the reward at this point. ADW launcher doesn't freeze like the default does but I would like to be able to search to get to things instead of diving 5 menus deep all of the time.

Motorola Droid :: Way To Get Back Voice Search?

Sep 17, 2010

I recently rooted and ROM'd. It used to work that when I held down the little magnifying glass in the lower right corner of my screen it would bring up a voice search that let me say pretty much anything... navigate to [here], call [this person]. It's stopped doing that. Now when I hold it down it brings up a little message saying "you haven't enabled quick compose, please enable it from handcent settings"

Motorola Droid 2 :: Corporate Email Search On D2

Oct 1, 2010

Open the email inbox, tap the search icon and the keyboard appears - but no search box. When I'd seen that before I thought it was just an odd defect.

When you start typing the letters you type appear above the keyboard and the emails are filtered on subject/sender by what you type.

Very cool...would like to have things like sorting by subject/sender, and searching contents, but heck, getting any search at all in exchange email on the Droid is great...does not exist in stock 2.2.

Hopefully I'm not the only one who didn't know. I'm on the 2.3.15 leak...no idea if it is in 2.2.20 as well...

Motorola Droid :: Cannot Search Specific Contacts / Way To Fix?

Apr 22, 2010

Whenever I want to send a text message to my friend Bob, i'll type "bob" in the recipients name and no phone number will come up even though he is stored in my contacts. However, whenever i want to send a text to Jill, I simply type "Jill" in the recipients box in the SMS and her phone number pops up. In order to send a text message to Bob, i have to go into Contacts-->Search-->Send text. It's more of a nuisance than anything else and was wondering if there was a remedy for it. I have tried re-programming the contacts information into the phone but the problem still exists.
