Prevent Screen From Locking On Playing Music

Is there a way to do this? I'd prefer to not have to unlock my g1 while driving because i want to change songs. Unless i'm g1 stupid (which is entirely possible, since i just got it yesterday), and there's a way to control my playlist by using some button i don't know about? I could control songs on my old blackberry by hitting 6 to skip to the next song.

Alternatively, is it possible to completely disable the auto-screen lock and just lock the phone manually when i want to toss it in my purse?

Music Stops Playing When Phone Screen Goes Idle / Off - Samsung Galaxy S2

When i plug my speakers into my phone and put on an app and the phone screen goes off, the music stops playing 2-3 minutes later. This happens in apps i've downloaded from the market. The apps are tunein radio, spotify, and 8 tracks. Is there a setting i have to change to keep them playing because they play fine as long as the screen is on. It works fine when i use a music player and play songs already on my phone, so could it be an issue with streaming or connectivity?

One more problem, my battery life seems to be a little short. I check the battery usage and the little chart and there are huge chunks of time when it is awake and the screen is off. And when i check to see what apps are taking the battery life, 90% of the time the android os takes about 60%-70% of the battery life. Is that bad?

Issue: Phone Crashes And Reboots While Playing Music On Galaxy Nexus

I decided to listen to a little music in bed last night. I got 30 seconds in on the stock music player; and while playing with different eq settings, the entire phone crashed and rebooted. I went straight back to the same song, and it did it a second time. On the 3rd attempt, it stopped, not sure what the deal was there.

Locking Phone / Using Apps While In Call

Is it possible to use other functions of the phone (for example the calendar or calculator) while on a voice call? I just purchased this phone online from sprint and i haven't even received it in the mail yet, but as i was reading through the reviews i read that you that you couldn't get to other features of the phone while you were on a voice call and that you could not lock the phone while in a call to avoid hitting the mute and other buttons - is this true?

Is there an app or update to correct this? I use my phone for business and i schedule appointments and save them in my calendar while i am on the phone all day long, this is the main function of the phone for me. If i can't get to the calendar while i am in a voice call then this phone is useless and i will return it before i even activate it.

How To Prevent That Keyboard Hides My Edittext

I have a relativelayout at the top, then below i have a listview in the center and finally at the bottom i have another relativelayout with an edittext and a button inside.

I want the listview to resize when i click on the edittext and the ime(virtual keyboard) appears. If i put adjustresize in the manifest, the listview is resized to leave space for the ime, but the relativelayout with the edittext that is below is covered by the ime and i can't see what i'm writing. If i put adjustpan, the keyboard pushs up all, the listview is not resized and i loose the top relativelayout. My code.

Prevent Droid From Backing Up Wireless Settings

Whereas i don't particularly care that google has access to my contacts and even stuff like my facebook password, i have no intention of sharing my wifi key with them. And i'm shocked that my googling doesn't turn up anyone else who is concerned by this. Does anyone know of a way to prevent that aspect from syncing? I have root and am technically inclined.

Prevent Back Button From Closing Sub-activity

I have a main activity. It's main purpose is to handle tab menu. If a user click a tab it'll load another activity as a sub-activity, still showing the tab menu. I am using intent to do this:

Setcontent(new intent(this, b. Class))

This sub-activity has an onclick function as well. If the user clicks one of the links it'll load xml layout file using setcontentview command:

Setcontentview(r. Layout. B1);

Now, when the back button is pressed while xml file is loaded, it'll close the entire application. Is there a way to prevent this, say, return to the sub-activity or the main activity?

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 )

Nexus - How To Prevent Amazon Mp3 From Self-launching All The Time

I guess it doesnt really harm much, at least in terms of memory and cpu load, but its just the principle. I dont want that spamware on my phone in the first place, and the fact that it is already taking whatever amount of valuable internal storage that it is is bad enough. Any app for this? Something that just prevents apps from launching?

Prevent Rooted Phones To Access Sqlite Db And Preferences

I have seen a few discussions on this, but i just wanted to see if there has been anything new. Currently, a rooted phone can access the /data/data/ com. Here/ path. Insides are all the wonderful areas like databases, files, and preferences. In fact, i was actually horrified to see that i could browse all the apps data on my development phone.

Is there a way to protect someone from accessing these (ie, password protect the database from shell access)? My issue is specifically in the database. While there isn't anything regarding passwords stored inside, there is some intellectual property in terms of the actual data and schema that could make it easier for people to copy what my application does.

My solution right now is to clear the particular tables i don't want people seeing in the database in ondestroy (when the user exits), or more accurately in onpause() with isfinishing(). Every time the application is launched the database is repopulated, so i am not worried about losing any data. I do realize that this isn't foolproof, but it seems to be better then nothing.

Motorola Droid X - Setting That Will Prevent Wifi From Turning Off Every Time Phone Sleeps

I asked this on the motorola forum as well and am hoping someone somewhere can help. Am i missing a setting that will prevent wifi from turning off every time the phone sleeps? The only setting i can find asks when to let it sleep and i have it set at never but every time i pick up the phone wifi has dropped the connection and it takes several minutes to reconnect. With my droid that never happened, once connected it stayed that way until i turned it off. 3g is terrible in my house so i miss stuff while wifi is "sleeping".

I only have a few days left to return this phone and these small, nagging issues keep turning up making me really consider returning it. I can't find another phone to replace it yet. I really wish i hadn't sold my droid. I hate to return to my razr until something good comes out.
