Easy Touch Way To Contoll Music In Car Without Looking

I used an ipod (old) that i could click next and back without looking on the wheel. Is there a way to do this on the droid, so that you just have to press the top or bottom or other easy touch way?

I really do not want to take my eyes off the road to control music

Htc Evo 4g - Music Player - Stream Music And Listen To Mp3s

I find it odd that htc doesn't publish battery time when using the evo as a music player, but apple does for their iphone. I use my evo to stream music and listen to mp3s a lot. So here is my observation from today.

Wifi on
Listening through last. Fm app
Headphone plugged in
Got a call in between, and a few text messages, looked at the screen a few times (who can resist the screen? )

Started listening non stop from 1:20pm
Battery at 92%

At 3:40pm
Battery is at 76%

16% drop for 2 hours and 20 minutes of non stop music listening with wifi on seems pretty damn good to me.

I'll updated my final percentage when i actually stop listening (i listen to music as i program. Watching tv is too distracting )

Htc Desire - How Easy Is It To Get Back To Default

So i have decided to root. I was going to goldcard/ruu to debrand my orange uk desire but i am a tinkerer and would love to flash rooted roms etc. Before i start i have a few questions;

1. Radio firmware: this is the biggie for me - i know that doing any sort of rom change you are likely to run into issues with the radio, this seems especially true on orange ones. So without having to unlock (it may sound cheap, but i haven't been paid for 2 months ) is there a way to avoid potential simlocks? Ie can i keep the radio version that is currently only my phone (just updated to froyo).

2. I know you can't get ota updates with rooted roms, but i like to keep up to date. I assume the guys making the roms are coming out with new ones all the time so is it quite easy to flash a new rom and be on your way?

3. Titanium backup and nandroid - i have seen people saying to use these for backups when you root. As far as i can tell titanium backup is good for settings etc, and nandroid is good for getting all your apps back, right? They both seem to require root access, so that surely means i can't backup all my settings before i root?

4. How easy is it to get back to default?

5. Which rom? I have seen many singing the praises of defrost. Is this pretty close to stock rom?

6. Anything you suggest i do/install when i am rooted? Anything especially cool .

I have seen many guides about, this in particular looks pretty damn easy to follow. Though the latest comments seem to be people having trouble now that they are on froyo and not eclaire. Also i got my phone early april, so i assume the screen is amoled, it doesn't seem to suffer from backlight bleed and its black as black on black backgrounds.

Sprint Htc Hero - Easy Way To List My Apps

Just wanted to see if there was either a straightforward way or an actual app that would allow me to, say, generate a list of all my installed apps so that i could keep them in case i needed to re-download them (factory reset, etc).

Seems simple enough.

Nother think i'd like to see would be more of a shopping cart and/or wish list set up in the market. Ever been looking for one app and ran across 2 other kick ass ones. Or some that you'd at least like to look into. But knew would completely distract you from the original app you were looking for? I'd like to be able to "tag" an app as something i'd like to look into later.

Anyway, please let me know if there's an easy way to produce a list of all the apps.

I am getting my droid x on thursday, and planning on buying the car dock, but i am not sure how to get the music from the phone to my car stereo. I have no luck with fm transmitters in my area, too few open channels, and no cassette tape to do that adapter. Does anyone have recommendations for car stereos i could buy that would connect to the droid x easily? Any that can do it wirelessly?

Htc Hero Car Charger

I just bought a genuine htc cc100 car charger for my hero but it wont fit into my phone. This is very strange. I bought the hero brand new last october, now im going on holiday i ordered a car charger but its the wrong shape, i will try and describe it. Looking at the charger first, end on, the bit that goes into my mobile its about 6mm x 2mm with each side angled in. On my mobile its the same size but only one side, the right hand side has a taper (angle) the left hand side is square, as in 90 degrees so they dont slot into each other. Can someone tell me which charger i need because all the hero ones im looking at have the tapered angle at both sides. Im baffled. Thanks for reading.

Ps, update. Hey guess what, it does actually fit although its a different shape. I didnt try it because of the shape and was afraid i might damage it but after reading a similar post on android forums, the same question was posted there and they said it will fit and it actually does. Sorry guys, i feel a bit of a muppet now. Square peg in a round hole eh, now thats something.

Car Animation Rotating Wheels

I am working in an app that shows different cars and the user needs to choose one. When you press on next the car moves out of the screen and the new one comes in.

My resources are:

Car's body
Car's wheel

(I need them to be separated because when the car moves i need to rotate the wheels)

I wanted to avoid absolutelayout so my carview extends 'relativelayout.

Here's the code:


Basically what i am doing is placing the body of the car and then using padding to place the wheels where they should be.

After reading this android developer's thread i notice that rotateanimation rotates the whole view including the padding making the wheels to do some strange movement.

Can you think of a better way to place the wheels imageview instead of using padding?

Another issue i have is that in a certain point i want the wheels to stop moving, but the method cancel() in animation is since: api level 8 and i need this to work on 1. 5. How should i stop the rotation?
