[Salary] Android Developers in Los Angeles County

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 23:07

I've developed Android applications professionally for 2 years and am looking to switch jobs. I'm a "good" developer, and can do well on technical interviews, and am wondering how much I should ask a company for salary-wise.

I'm currently making 77k USD + 10% salary year end bonus.

Can anyone give me insight into what I should be asking for in the Los Angeles / Santa Monica job market given my experience?

Team player + fun, fun, FUNNNN + company trips wooo + fantastic journey OMG + it's not work, it's play! = shit pay as an Android dev?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 22:11

I was initially tempted to apply at Mindvalley, but then reading through the website sent off multiple alarms in my head.

The interior looks too much like a kindergarten than an actual office. There is a video of employees posing with toy guns, and excessive smiling and hugging everywhere, and everywhere I am pitched about how fun, fun, funnnnnn it is to work there rather than how well I am going to be paid for my work.

Sure enough, reviews at Glassdoor reveal that salaries are low and burnout rates are high at Mindvalley.

Is this just Mindvalley, or should I also be aware of other companies that adopt the 'fun fun funnnnn' approach?

I want to be taken seriously in my profession and I am money driven, so I am wondering if freelancing is actually the way to go in that case.

How would i answer an interview question of implementing android login ?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 21:01

If you have a big project, where a login screen requirement, what processes you will follow to ship it.

What are the things I need to say to the interviewer?

I don't have a real experience how this is implemented in real-world apps

Seek/dial control in android

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 20:55

I am new to Android dev, though I have good experience with developing UI applications for desktop. I want to use a seek control in my application that is similar to the FM radio app frequency change control. The one where the needle is fixed at the center and the user swipes the dial beneath, left or right. I could not find any reference online, maybe I didn't search for the right keywords. Is there a free control available or I need to write one? If I need to write one, where do I start? Thanks in advance. Cheers, Bejoy

Can't HTTP GET local host name?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 19:28

I'm trying to set up some sonoff switches with tasmota, and I'm using the http commands. The problem is I can't get the HTTP GET to work with the switch's local host name, but it works fine with the ip address. Ie. Using

HTTP GET works fine, but

HTTP GET switchname/(command) does not work with Tasker. It does work on my pc browser, so I know I'm using the right name. Can Tasker not resolve local hosts by name?

[Update] - SMS and Call Permissions: One Step Closer

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 18:21

I've got some good news!

After Google got in touch with me about the SMS and call permissions in Tasker, they've now added Task Automation apps as an exception in their exception list!

I would be shocked if Tasker was denied the permissions now! 😁

In any case, I'll post the final confirmation after I (hopefully) get the approval from Google!

Thanks again for all your help throughout the whole process everyone! You're all super awesome!

Also special thanks to Mishaal Rahman for letting me know that the exception list was updated! 😀

Google-smacked for "impersonation"

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 16:58

I wish I knew to search for it beforehand, as I've lost my apps now with 20,000 downloads. It's sad that Google offers no recourse to submit changes and fix your "wrongdoings". Starting over at 0 is no fun. This is my first app so it is a bit disheartening.

On a positive note, it did force me to come up with a more original logo, and I'm just praying they don't decide to smack me again and terminate my dev account.

Sorry for the "dear diary" post, I don't really have anyone to talk to about this stuff.

How I finally got rid of Google Assistant!

Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 16:57

So a while ago I posted this screenshot and asked how to stop Google Assistant appearing. It usually only appears when using the home button, but for my phone the shortcut is when you swipe up. This means whenever I am scrolling, Google Assistant occasionally pops up and gets in my way.

For those like me who want Google Assistant to go away, and don't have the option to uninstall this is how to get rid of it.

Samsung: Settings > Apps > Three Dots > Default Apps > Device Assistance App > Device Assistance App > None (or select another shortcut if you want).

Huawei: Settings > Apps & Notifications > Default Apps > Assistance and Voice Input > Assist App > None (or select another shortcut if you want).

Honestly this has been such a pain in the ass for me, I'm really happy to finally have it gone.

Is 800 downloads the first week a good result for a game?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 16:02

I’ve published a week ago a game (I leave you the links below), and in a week I made 800 downloads. Is it a good result, considering that I didn’t pay for advertising, I only posted some link around the internet. Here are the links.

Any way to trigger Silent Mode on Android P yet?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 15:37

I'm not interested in DND, just silent mode that can be accessed in the phone's volume menu.
