How To Obfuscate An App When Using Intellij Idea

I imagine there are two options:

Build a parallel ant script and bypass the ide (seems pretty inefficient when the ide is so good)
Somehow integrate proguard/yguard or similar with intellij

I've tried installing plugins for proguard/yguard into intellij but neither seem to be working (installed ok, but don't appear under facets), and actually i'm not 100% sure these plugins will help me obfuscate or whether they just provide a de-obfuscation facility for debugging.

I figure ant is the best route, but would appreciate your thoughts. I just want a way to reduce the chances of someone reverse-engineering apps, but without spending hours setting it up.

How To Build Project With Scala Sources In Intellij Idea - Community Edition

I am trying to build an android project with scala sources in intellij idea (community edition). I am using scala sources from java files: auto-complete works correctly, but build cannot resolve scala classes in java: cannot find symbol class myscalaclass.

(I managed that in eclipse, but scala support in eclipse is poor. )

I have added scala module in addition to android module. Now, build fails during generating classes. Dex with message:

Error: trouble writing output: format == null

I found that it is a limitation of dalvik: issue 7147.

How can i strip unused methods/classes in idea without using ant script? (I was using proguard in ant script, but i was unable make idea to parse scala error messages from ant results. )

Grocery List Alarm Notification App Idea

I was thinking of a cross platform mobile/web application (android, iphone, winmo, symbian, etc). Of course for this forum we will talk strictly about android. The idea behind the program will be lists. To do lists, grocery lists, honey do lists, etc. It will have a web interface and will sync with a hand held client. Basic use of the program on your phone will be to make to do lists on your phone, grocery lists, etc. Wouldn't it be sweet to have your grocery list on your g1 and when you put the item in your basket you hit the check mark on the list and it crosses it out?

Where it would separate itself from the competition and really use the android platform will be the web to mobile or mobile to mobile interface. Lets say your wife wants to send you a grocery list. She could go to the web interface and writes up the list, assigns the list to [yournamehere] and you get a notification of a new list and it pops up on your mobile client on your g1. Or maybe she has her own g1, she can write up the list on her own personal g1 and send it to you that way.

You could really integrate it into the android os.contacts integration. Integrate it with the alarm (maybe your husband leaves work at 5pm so you assign his grocery list an alarm to go off at 5pm to remind him to stop by the store, or maybe he needs that reminder to get his hair cut off his to do list, etc). Integration with the notification system. Etc.

From the web interface you can print off your lists for when you send a list to someone without a mobile device. Or at least make a link to a web page mobile web friendly so you can send a link to a list to someone with a blackberry or a wap browser or winmo device and they can look it up that way without having to use the mobile client. The web interface would/could pay for itself (maybe even make money) with advertising. Is there a better target for context based advertising then someone who just received a to-do list or grocery list?

How To Instruct Intellij - Not Include Certatin Dependencies

My project layout is


But as soon as i want to compile and build my androidclient intellij adds the server libs to the compile classpath of my android project and i get a unexpected top-level exception because of multiple classes that are present in android and normal java.

My question is how can i set up my project without duplicating the server code?

It seems to be a problem with the android-plugin. It includes all the serverside libs in the build.

Simple Magic Card Trick Idea

I have an idea for an adroid magic card trick. Having looked around the internet i cant find anything like it so im putting it on here in hope that someone who knows what they are doing will create it

1. Before the trick is shown to the viewer select a real card from a deck i.e. Ace of hearts but any card will do.

2. In the setup section of the app enter the card that has been selected.

3. Hide the real card behind the phone. I have a samsung galaxy s so the phone is a perfect match size wise.

4. Now in front of the viewer open the app which shows the top of a deck of cards face up.

5. Swipe the phone from right to left which starts the cards shuffling through continuously.

6. Tap the phone to stop at a random card.

7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until the viewer is convinced that each time the card is random.

8. When ready to perform the actual trick swipe the phone from left to right instead of right to left to start the cards shuffling.

9. This time when the phone is tapped the card selected and entered at step 2 appears.

10. Using your thumb on the front of the phone and a finger on the real card behind the phone, appear to remove the card the viewer has selected from the phone and give it to the viewer.

If this app already exists can someone point me to it.

Possible In Market To Delete An Existing Free App And Reupload It Again As A Pay App

I have an app i am offering for free for now. At some point, i want to be able to change it to a pay app.

The market doesn't allow a free app to become for-pay and doesn't allow for-pay apps to be priced at 0$.

So is it possible to just delete the original app and then reupload it as a for-pay app ? It's okay in my case if users aren't notified of updates.

Got Charged More Than Once For An App / Why Did I Get It

I bought the gameboid app for 3. 99 this morning in the market.

I then went to my bank's website to check that it went through and i noticed that i had three charges from google. Two for 1. 00 and one for 3. 99. Obviously, the 3. 99 one was correct.

I looked into some of the older threads that were related, and found out that google has an authorization charge for 1. 00 that they remove (i think), but why did i get two? Could it be related to me initially backing out of purchasing the app?

What happened was after i clicked buy, a window popped up asking for my credit card info. Here is where i hit back because i thought that the app was added to my verizon bill so i texted my mom (who's owned her android for over a year now) what to do. I then clicked buy again and enter the info.

Will both of the 1. 00 charges be removed? Do i need to contact google (i don't even have a clue how to do that)?

Backporting An App To 1.5

We initially built our app for 2. 1. Now, we're trying to get it working on 1. 5.

I changed the target to "3" in default. Properties, and i copied over the missing ant targets, but now i'm getting an error because "drawable-hdpi" is an invalid res directory name.

It looks like this is switching me to the old build tools. I'd like to use the latest tools but build against the 1. 5 apis.

Where To Get Dj / Mixing App

Is there an app out there that does mixing of songs in ur music playlist's or even lets you mess with preloading tracks on the app? **Like the deadmau5 app for the itouch?

Im looking for an app that would allow you to pretty much mess with splice, dj, remix, and cut songs from your saved music and allows you to save the new monstrosity you've made and play it back?

If not how does one do about pushing for this concept to be created?

I think it would be a great idea to bring to the adroid market and has been very overlooked. I had a ton of smaller less indepth apps on my itouch and would love to see a balls out version on my evo.

So does it exist or can it be created? Also after seeing the lame iphone4 commercial on the apple site that showed a good looking version of apples movie editing software in phone version, i think this is more then possible.
