Adaptive Icons are a mess. How do we constructively go about asking developers to implement them?

Android - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 03:23

The app drawer is a disaster when icons don't reach the right standard!

It's not such a bad idea when done right.

So what do you think? How would you constructively go about asking developers to implement them correctly?

Problem of adding 4K support for my app

Developing Android Apps - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 01:48

Am recently adding support for 4K in my app for Android TV users. My test device is SONY KD-49XF9005. While the built-in image viewer, as well as YouTube, can display in 4K without issue, I've got no luck getting it to work for my app so far.

My app uses a GLSurfaceView to render images. I've followed the 4K Display Mode API guide, and with that I hope to be able to select one of the 4K display modes available on my TV so that my GLSurfaceView can draw in physical resolution (code snippet shown below). However, the API constantly returns me one and only one display mode i.e. 1080p. This really bothers me, the hardware should support it as other built-in apps can use 4K, why doesn't it return a 4K display mode for my app?

I've also read through all relevant Android TV developer guide and wasn't able to find anything special. I'd really appreciate if anyone can shred me some light on this. Thanks!

Play Store Console notification about app I don't own? ("Seeker")

Developing Android Apps - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 01:43

I got this weird Play Console notification about an app I don't own called "Seeker". Has this happened to anyone else? I'm wondering how this would have actually happened, too. I wouldn't want notifications about my own apps being accidentally sent to other developers.

Would a 'pseudocode then Google' approach work well for creating apps as a newbie?

Developing Android Apps - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 01:21

Hello. I'm still trying to code an actual, usable app that people would want to download and use. It seems that while I have these great ideas, I seem to be unable to implement them due to my limited knowledge of code.

I do recall the concept of writing pseudocodes when I sat in for a Java course during college. Here I am thinking that even if I don't know how to exactly code for what I have in mind, I'll just write everything down in pseudocode, then Google everything afterward replacing it with real code.

Would this approach work well enough?

How do I install Linux on my laptop

Linux - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 00:02

I’m not sure if this is the best place to post this but when I upgraded to windows 10, my laptop became extremely slow. I heard that Linux is lightweight and I wish to install it on my laptop but I don’t know what I am doing and I don’t want to do something that might mess my computer even more. I use it mostly for playing games while on road trips. Thanks for your help

Hi folks - one of the moditarians here. Due to an influx of recent submissions of this type, we've added a new rule to the sub: Any posts linking paywalled articles are not allowed. Please do report these.

This includes anything from established publications to subscription-only posts. This does not necessarily apply to entire sites (unless the site happens to be 100% subscription-only). For instance: you can post a medium blog post, but you cannot post a subscription-only medium blog post.
