Htc Incredible - Backup User Defined Dictionary

Is there a way to backup the user defined dictionary when switching between roms? I searched around a bit but couldn't find a solution for htc phones. Would restoring htc_ime using titanium backup work? (Assuming you are restoring sense 2. 2 on top of 2. 2?)

Cannot Add Words With Apostrophes For Some Reason

I'm using an htc desire and mostly write using the 0-9 phone keypad. I'm having trouble with words that use apostrophes, especially "i'm" as the word it suggests is i'n. I tried adding the word to the user dictionary but it seems you cannot add words with apostrophes for some reason.

List Of Words Appear With Prefixes When Texting / Get Rid Of It

When texting, a list of words appear with prefixes and complete words, ones i've used and havent used. Is there a way to get rid of the ones i haven't used from the list and add as needed ? It's annoying and frustrating how the automatic spellcheck sometimes changes my word(s) just when i push send and messes up my text.

Htc Droid Eris - Possible Way To Reset Words Eyboard Remembers

Was just wondering if there was any possible way to reset the words the keyboard remembers? My girlfriend was using my phone to txt a friend last night, now when i try to type "in" it just comes up as "ib" i can always just hit the prediction words but that would be absolutely annoying to have to do that every time im typing the word. Also when i type "if" it always comes up as "id", thats been happening since i got the phone a month ago. Just the 1 has been annoying me for some time, and i can only imagine how bad it will be with 2. Please dont let these 2 tiny words ruin my txtng!

Htc Droid Eris - Words Freeze For Second Then Space Itself When Texting / Fix It

I'm having problems while texting. I use t9 and while m textin the words will freeze for a second then space itself and the word i was trying to type just comes out totally wrong. Also when i start texting, sometimes the first few letters or words will come out capitalized (ex. Hello forum. ) Or (ex. Hello forum. )

Also when i enter passwords for lets say myspace or facebook and it enters into abc mode, if i try to enter "l" and i have to push it 3 times then it enters 3 letters so i have to backspace and slowly try to enter "l"

Anyone have any ideas or fixes?

Dictionary.com - Why Need Internet

I have had an ipod touch before and i'm somewhat regrading getting an android for the lack of apps. The battery life isn't that great neither vs from what i gotten with my ipod but thats another story. The only thing i want is the dictionary to work. I love dictionary.com thesaurus it works great, on the ipod as i can use it offline, it only needs online to do spell checking, with the android i need it to be online to do simple things as just checking definitions. Not sure how this small app does it on an ipod but it works great.

What i like about android is the amount of freedom you get. The ability to turn things off and the way the ui is laid out. The big widgets.

So i would like to know. Is there some way of getting the full dictionary without having to be connected to the internet?

New World College Dictionary For Ereader

Well, now i've had some time to live with the new world college dictionary. I am less than pleased. It has to be one of the worst software implementations i have ever seen. (I have been messing around with computers since the early 1980s and i have seen some pretty bad software. )

New world college dictionary can't handle plurals or alternate spellings. Try looking up "demonstrates, " as a direct lookup from within a book. You will be rewarded with a blank screen. After playing around with it, i discovered that the reason is that the search strategy is literal and inflexible. Although "demonstrate" is included in the dictionary, the search implementation can't find it because it searches and shows only the result for "demonstrates" (nada) there is no routine to show you spelling variants that are close. All you see is a blank screen.

This is not the behavior a dictionary should show. The collins english dictionary (on the palm os), for example, defaults to a list of close spellings and allows you to choose among them. I am finding that about a third of the words i look up result in a blank screen, even though variants of the word are in the dictionary. There is not even a warning message. All you see is pure white.

The software cannot handle long definitions. Try looking up a word that has seven or eight long definitions. You will find that the definitions are frequently cut off in mid sentence. The next page is blank.

Look up "demonstration. " At the bottom of the page you will find the seventh definition reads, "7 a logical proof in which a certain" that's it. The bar says this is page 1 of 2. Page 2 is blank.

This is not the behavior i expect from a $25 nonrefundable app. I sure wish that collins (or even the oed) would rewrite for android.

Be forwarned! (Btw, you won't find "forewarned" from a direct lookup in the new world college dictionary. You have to find a place where the author used "forewarn. ")

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Messaging Dictionary

I've just updated my xperia with android 2. 1 and the way the new dictionary works is driving me crazy! Whenever i try to type something the only suggestions i get are names of people from my facebook friend list and phonebook rather than normal words, even though i already had picked the recipients. Also, if i don't confirm the fully typed word by pressing on the suggestion, the dictionary changes it automatically to a random name from my contact list.

Just to clarify i'm not trying to type in a message in the 'add recipient' field, all of the above happens in the message typing screen.

I tried switching between default and android keyboard and meddled with all of the language and keyboard settings - the dictionary still has a mind of its own  

I want my dictionary to work the way it did before the update - does anyone know a remedy to my problem?Texting takes now 500 times longer.

Is There A Way To Request Permissions From A User As You Need Them

I suspect there has to be. I mean i saw for bluetooth there is. I was wondering why it is not as easy for the other permissions. I mean heck we can intercept urls without even asking a user for the most part, so i would have to suspect that permissions have to have this ability.

User Experience And Ui Refinements

I think android has a ton of functionalities and that's definitely wonderful. I am not trying to be overally critical since i know the android team has been working hard and this is highly appreciated. However in all systems, there are rooms for improvement and here are a few areas where i think android can improve upon:

1) ui refinements - currently it's actually pretty hard to create good- looking ui in android. This is one of the main reasons why uis in android look like childplay compared to iphone apps. Any of the base/ core ui components in android (to be blunt) are not that pretty. To customize and add in the appropriate gradient and create the kind of sophisticated uis that are comparable to iphone apps is twice as hard. Having done development in both, this is something android should target. Overall the android ui is too blocky, too funky, and not stylish. And in some cases, they are moving backwards. The new tabs in android 2. 0 look worse than android 1. 6. The new spinner is also not doing justice either. A focus in this area will be helpful in order to create better ui for android applications.

2) user experience - instead of constantly just adding new functionalities, focus on user experience. For example, always having to click the menu key to bring up a menu requires additional clicks that are not necessary. Having to click a back key and guess where the current application ui will take me back to is also not great. Possibly provide a built-in on-screen menu in the framework? Provide a breadcrumb component as part of the framework as well?

Refresh Notification After Deleting From User

I have a backgroundservice running, an icon is displayed in the status- bar. When a user clicks the button "delete notifications" my icon dissappears also. But i want that after that my icon appears again! So that the user is able to click on the notification to get into my application. Now i display the notification in a thread every time. But i want to display it only if it was deleted. I think the best way is to check if the notification is displayed, is there a way to get this information?

Log From A Samsung Moment User

If you have a samsung moment and have adb working for it, would you mind downloading deadly chambers demo off the android market and running it with the log up for me?I'm getting reports of it "not opening" but no additional details. Just the crash log would help tremendously. I think all you need to do is install and try to play the game.

I can return the favor with an evo, tattoo, g1, n1, archos 5 or droid.

Showing File Upload Progress To User

Does anyone have a recommendation on how to visually show progress of uploading a large file to a web server? My app needs to upload one photo at a time, as directed by the user. Images are about 200kb.

I don't want to put up a progress dialog and block the user from further interaction while the upload is in progress. Looks like i can:

Have a service upload the photo, and post status updates to the notification bar.
Upload through service (or bg thread), but post status updates to some in-app notification indicator.

I'm wondering if #1 is more standard, i like the idea of putting off updates to the notifcation bar so it's separated from my main app. I don't really want to build some global upload widget that has to be displayed on each activity my user navigates to.

Detect When User Dismissed Soft Keyboard

I have an edittext widget in my view. When the user selects the edittext widget, i display some instructions and the soft keyboard appears.

I use an oneditoractionlistener to detect when the user has completed text entry and i dismiss the keyboard, hide the instructions and perform some action.

My problem is when the user dismisses the keyboard by pressing the back key. The os dismisses the keyboard, but my instructions (which i need to hide) are still visible.

I've tried overriding onkeydown, but that doesn't seem to get called when the back button is used to dismiss the keyboard.

I've tried setting an onkeylistener on the edittext widget, but that doesn't seem to get called either.

How can i detect when the soft keyboard is being dismissed?
