Making Your App Available To 3rd Party Applications

I want to integrate my application with 3rd party application, my understanding is that both application can agree of a action which can be used in intent filter for any activity to be exported which could be used when 3rd party app fires the intent with that particular action in it, any body has a better approach to this.

Handle App Dependencies To 3rd Party

The app i'm currently developing depends on a third party application (oifilemanager).

My question is what is the general way to handle these kind of dependencies?

Tell the user to resolve it?

Embed the 3d-party apk (if its license allows it)

Automatically resolve it (maybe android market has a system for it).

Check For Existence Of 3rd Party Library During Installation

If my app is dependent on a 3rd party library, say chartdroid . Is there a way to check this dependency during installation time and redirect the user to install the dependency before continuing to install my app.

I ask this because while installing one google app (i think google translate) it asked me to install tts before continuing to install.

Anything Below Froyo Can't Read Method In 3rd Party Library / Fix It

I'm using the jexcel api in my android application. It works great on devices running android 2. 2, but any other device just gives a blank string when i try to get the contents of a cell.

I've narrowed the thing thats not working to the cell. Getcontents() method in the jexcel api. All android version below 2. 2 are able to get the workbook, get the sheets, get the number of sheets, and they can get the cells, but when trying to get the contents within that cell, it return a blank string.

Is there something wrong with the library, or is it an android problem

Is there currently a working option for a 3rd party tethering program? I'm waiting to hear about the beta for android and this: android-wifi-tether - project hosting on google code needs a rooted phone and isn't available for the incredible.

Anyone have another option? I'd be happy with either usb or wifi tethering.

How To Use A Third Party Library For An App

I am trying to use a third party library for an application and i also need to add all it's dependency jars in order for it to work. What i did so far, was create a lib folder inside my android app project and started adding the library and all it's dependencies in there. However, when i tried to add them to the project java build path in eclipse, my eclipse froze and i got an error that the workbench state is not ok. Is there a different way to add jars to an application? Do i need to compile and package the jars using dx and the apk packaging tools? Is there a limitation on the size of the libraries (i think that all the jars i am trying to import are about 5 mb's)? Can someone please point me to some documentation or give me some pointers on using third party jar libraries from android applications, as i've tried searching and asking around, but haven't found anything relevant - perhaps i missed something.

Motorola Droid - App Specifically Designed For Making Schedule

I recently switched from a long line of windows mobile phones (which i liked the features of but obviously wasn't a huge fan of the bugs) and i have always used excel to make the work schedules for my employees. It's fast, easy, and simple to email to everyone if they can't remember when they work next.

I just picked up the droid yesterday and as far as i can tell there is no excel (which makes sense) i did notice a few spreadsheet programs on the market but haven't tried them yet. Does anyone know of an app specifically designed for making a schedule? Something basically like a spreadsheet where i can have rows with names and columns with days and times.

I'm going to download one of the spreadsheet programs now and see what i think but if anyone has any suggestions i am definitely open (and interested) in trying something new.

Layout - Making Three Tables With One Column

I need to represent the following diagram: each x will be an image button. I was thinking of making three tables with one column each and have each cell height be half the height of the table. The problem is that the table needs to be able to stretch or shrink because i am worried about getting everything on the screen and the tables are the only part that can change size and have the entire thing still look ok. The problem i am having is that the rows are only as big as the image buttons. While all the image buttons are the same size, the left and right table in particular, need to have some padding around the image buttons to make it alright. I would add margins to the buttons but that defeats the reshaping problem i am having. I think.

Making 9patch Images With Single Pixel Borders

Is there a trick to making 9patch images with single pixel borders?

I'm not talking about the single pixel black borders that you use to define the stretchable and content areas. I'm talking about the image itself. If i create an image that has a 1 pixel border around it, often times android will pick one of the edges and stretch it to 2 (or sometimes more) pixels, even though i specifically left the edges out of the stretchable area in the draw9patch utility.

Here is a screenshot of what i mean; in this screenshot i've got two buttons in a vertical linearlayout with the same background image. The top button obviously has a thicker border, though it shouldn't.

Here is a closeup of the screenshot button (on the left) and the actual 9patch image (on the right).


Buttons are not the only place i've seen this. If i create a background image with a 1 pixel border and use it as the background for listview rows, sometimes the border appears to be 2pixels instead of just 1.

It's hard to get a ui to look exactly how you want it with these problems. There's got to be a way to get it to appear how you think it should.

Sprint Htc Hero - Phone Not Making A Peep / Make It Sound

So i have been using my phones 16gb memory card to listen to music on my computer at work for most of the day today. I go out to lunch and bring the phone with me as usual. I notice that i have 5 missed calls and 9 texts that have come in over the last few hours. My phone did not make a peep and i now realize why, with the memory mounted via the computer the phone has no access to the memory where the ringtones are stored and thus the phone has no way to make sound.

Motorola Milestone - Latency Being Extremely High - Making Browsing Ect Over Wi-fi Feel Slower Than Over Hsdpa

I've had my motorola milestone for just under a week now and although an excellent handset, i like others, am experiencing some wi-fi problems , usually just refusing to communicate (although still apparently connected), this is resolved by turning wi-fi off in the handset, and then back on again.

But the main problem is latency being extremely high, usually around 800ms but up to 1400ms, making browsing ect over wi-fi feel slower than over hsdpa.

The latency was determined by pinging the handset from a wired ethernet computer from the command prompt.

I upgraded from android 2. 0 to 2. 0. 1 over the air hoping that it would resolve the problem, which it didn't, and then to 2. 1 from and developers, but the problem still persists.

I've also tried pinging my ipod touch, which produced a time of around 250ms and my samsung galaxy portal (android 1. 5) which had also had a latency of around 250ms.

So it would seem that the problem is inherent to the milestone rather than android handsets in general?

I'm using a us robitics 5450 802. 11g access point, and the signal strength is good. Pinging the access point itself from a wired ethernet computer produced a latency of less than 1ms, and i do not have any issues with any other wi-fi connected devices on my network.

I've yet to attempt pinging my milestone from a different wi-fi ap.

Has anyone else her had similar latency issues, and have you had any luck resolving the problem?

Confused About Skype Applications

I had skype on my iphone (i now, for 2 days only, have the droid incredible). I see that there's a different skype application for this droid. Skype mobile. I just had plain old regular skype with my iphone. I downloaded both applications and yesterday they both started ringing at the same time lol. When i tried to answer the normal skype app it disconnected.

Anyway, which one am i supposed to use? Today i opened the skype mobile and it said i couldn't use it with a wifi connection. Data only and it asked if i'd like to turn off the wifi. No! I prefer using skype on wifi, not data. So. After all that blah, blah, blah. Which skype application works with this phone, especially the wifi?
