Slow Home Screen Recover When Closing Applications

One thing i've noticed is that when when closing certain applications the home screen takes some time to recover. What i mean by recover is that the home screen initially only shows the background and a few icons, but no widgets, status bar and drawer. These items takes a while to come back on the screen. This doesn't happen with all applications, but when closing some (like skyfire) it always happens. With most applications the home screen is there instantly, so i was wondering why some seems to slow down the home screen like that. Ideas anyone?

I'm running android 1. 6 with adw. Launcher (but the same thing happens with other launcher including the built in android one).

Customize Home Screen Instead Of Going With Default Home Screen

I am pretty new to android and have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to drag and drop a ui widget from one activity to another activity?

2. Does android support multiple non fullscreen applications running active concurently  (say a browser and phone screen next to each other)?

3. Is it possible to customize the home screen instead of going with android default home screen? If so, can we change the layout and widgets in that screen completely?

Motorola Droid - How 5 Home Screen Wallpapers Work

Looks like we get 5 home screens in v2. 2 coming out this week.

Does anyone know, will it be one wall paper image, like it is now, that as you shift home screens, you shift across the picture?

Or, will it be more like a completely different wallpaper per home screen?

Contacts-based App Force-closing On Droid - Unable To Repro / Fix It

I'm having problems with my application on droid phones. I am unable to reproduce the problems in the emulator. A co-worker of mine with a droid also has no issues running my app. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

My application is called dialify. It's open source; you can find the code here:

My app queries the contacts db to display a list of contacts. The user can select contacts to turn them into notifications that can be dialed/ texted.

Droid users reported 2 problems:

1) contacts not appearing 2) app force-closes when they begin to scroll through the contacts list

My app creates a cursor over the contacts db to display contacts. I realized problem #1 was due to using the api level 5 method of access which only shows contacts for the master account. I fixed this, but the force-close issue remains.

Unfortunately, i am unable to replicate a force-close in the emulator. I thought maybe it was the number of contacts and created about 200 of them, to no avail. It's been happening to users who use exchange and users who do not, so i haven't tried getting exchange contacts into the emulator.

Cyanogen 5 Home Screen Resets When Pressing Home

This has been happening since 5. 0. 8 test four and the latest 5. 0. 8. After i use a couple of apps, say i'm in gmail or using the browser, when i press the home button it takes a few seconds because the launcher/home screen seems to restart. It has been happening with stock anderwebs, market anderwebs, and launcher pro beta. I reinstalled the rom various times. I wiped everything.

Fixed permissions. Tried everything i know of and this still happens. Anyone know a fix? Anyone having this problem? I thought i read this was fixed on the changelog, but i guess not. Again, when i press home after using an app the launcher takes a few seconds to reset. Ex: it goes to the stock launcher with out my settings for a few seconds and then loads up my icons and all. It's actually a real pain and adds up to a huge waste of time

Edit: i think this is the bug that he said was fixed, from changelog: "long standing "disappearing icons" launcher bug fixed" this still happens when i press home icons disappear a few mins and then come back with my settings.

Motorola Droid - Car Mount Keeps Phone Screen On / Fix It?

I was under the impression that when the droid is placed in a car mount, the car mode will keep the screen on even though it is not being charged. I know it keeps it on during navigation, but doesn't it also keep it on at all times as long as it's in the car mount? Cause mine doesn't.

My solution for the moment was to go into settings, applications, development and keep screen on while being charged and just always charge the phone while in the mount, but would much rather have it stay on ragardless. I put my droid in the mount, choose "view map" and 30 seconds later. Blank.

How does yours act?

Motorola Droid - Dolphin Browser Not Fitting To Screen / Fix It

I'm using the dolphin browser and just about my only grievance is that web pages are not fitting to the screen. I have to pinch every new screen. There's a setting for this, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. Also, in the last update there was a note that this would be fixed in the update.
Anyone else having this trouble, too?

Htc Droid Eris - Home Screen Reloading Too Many Widgets / Get Rid Of Bh On It

My home screen has recently been trying to reload itself after a moderate amount of activity on the phone.

Simply loading reader or my6sense + opera/dolphin and then hitting home again causes all my widgets/icons to disappear and then slowly reload one by one, similar to exiting out of a memory-hungry game on a pc.

I've noticed beautiful home is the worst offender, sometimes taking 10-20 seconds to fully reload and for the screen to be responsive again.

Getting rid of bh on my homescreen seems to help, but then again maybe i need to take it easy with the widgets. I've got 5 on my lockscreen alone.

Htc Droid Eris - Downloaded Sms Popup App - Home Screen Deleted Half Of Icons / Whats Wrong

Home screen deleted half of my icons and all of my additional pages on the home screen this morning. I downloaded the sms popup app yesterday and this morning i was checking my messages and i went to touch settings from my menu button and some screen poped up. I cant remember exactly what it said but something was changing/downloading and thats when my home screen deleted half of my icons. I went into scenes and tried changing it back to my saved scene but it still wouldn't work. So i manually had to go in and put everything back to the way it was that i can remember. What the *** happened? My google voice keeps poping up a error message to force close so i think im gonna delete that too. I also downloaded toddler lock for my son and some how he managed to pin it to my home scene and i had to delete it bc i couldnt hit home with out it poping up to set it and a scene. I've only had my phone for a week. I love this phone to death but what am i doing wrong or is it just the apps?

How To Get Default Screen To Go Away

I have recently installed lock 2. 0, the full version. When i press the "end" button to bring the phone out of standby mode, the default lock screen still comes up with the "drag down" unlock. After that is unlocked is when the "lock 2. 0" lock comes up. Any ideas how to get the default screen to go away? This wasn't an issue with the free edition on lock 2. 0.

Motorola Droid 2 - Keep Things To Landscape As Default

I would love to use my d2 in landscape mode all the time. I use dxtop for my launcher so i can force that to landscape easily. Many of the apps and games i use are landscape anyway. My question is about the lock screen. I know the lock screen does operate in landscape mode (with the keyboard open), but when i close the keyboard it goes back to portrait. Is there any way for me to keep things landscape as the default?

Do android homescreen widgets "know" when user returns to that homescreen? Specifically, can a widget know (and use this knowledge) when a user comes back to that homescreen after:

- Unlocking the device
- Swiping back from another homescreen
- Completing a phone call
- Closing an app
- Closing a popup
- Pressing dedicated home soft/hard button
- Closing all-app list
