How can I display the android emulater in a browser window?

Developing Android Apps - 1 hour 46 min ago

Does anyone have any idea how I can display the Android Studio emulator inside a public facing web page similar to what some of the app building websites do?

Sites like appypie and buildfire are able to let users build in the browser and then test a running mobile app in the user's browser. Anyone know how they achieve this?

Thanks for any help.

Curiosity : where do you install SDK ? on ssd or on hdd ?

Developing Android Apps - 1 hour 51 min ago

Hi ! I'm so curious ! We all know that the SDK takes up a lot of space on our hard disk. Where do you install it ? On primary ssd or on a second hdd ? Currently I have installed it on the primary SSD , but i'm wondering if install It on the hdd compromise build performance or not.. mmm..

There are a lot of things to learn as a professional Android Developer, I feel like I'm lost..

Developing Android Apps - 2 hours 31 min ago

I started working as a fresh CS graduate Android Developer a few months ago, I can make apps using Java , I know how to write clean code with proper naming conventions or how to debug properly etc. Last month I started to learn Kotlin, It's pretty easy to pickup but then I found out about Dart and Flutter.... I was learning about reactive programming, RxJava, RxAndroid or RxKotlin, then Kotlin coroutines came out... I was so used to Butterknife but then Data binding became a thing... then people started to use Kotlin Anko... I can't even understand Dagger or MVP but people started using MVVM+LiveData.... Yesterday I saw an article about Android Jetpack and Android APK Bundle... seriously I can't even follow anymore, I'm lost and depressed, I don't want to loose my job. Is there a website to learn every new Android thing:(

What's your favorite feature of Kotlin?

Developing Android Apps - 2 hours 40 min ago

It's been a year since Google announced first-class support for Kotlin. As someone who has just started writing Kotlin, I'm interested in learning what are androiddev's favorite features so far.

Serious doubt over the Android One program - Nokia 7 Plus still on 8.0 February 1st update in the UK

Android - 3 hours 8 min ago

I got the Nokia 7 Plus (unlocked from Amazon) on the promise of regular and fast updates, but it's not the case. There's plenty of people complaining about it:

Seems to be tied to sim cars perhaps? People have said factory resetting and removing the sim card will get you the update, as well as swapping out an EE sim (which people are saying are blocking the update) for another network will also get you the update. I was hoping that Android One would work independent of the carriers but this doesn't seem to be the case...

Do you guys have an "Emergency" plan?

Android - 3 hours 13 min ago

Hey guys, does any of you have a backup way to get in touch with someone when you use a password handler (i.e. lastpass, dashlane, etc) and let's assume your device gets taken (just happened to a friend of mine)?

So what I mean is this: like I said, a friend of mine had this happen to her (she was mugged & attacked) and somebody lent her a phone but she didn't know any of the phone #'s so she did the next best thing she could think about and she just signed into her Fb account.

Cool, that worked for her, however, it got me thinking. If something like that were to happen to me (knock on wood), I can't get into my Fb account because it's using 2FA for which I'd need my phone...then I realized I'd be locked out. I do know some phone #'s but if I'm out (say traveling) then those might not be helpful. So now I don't know how I'd handle this kind of situation.

Potential for a simple multiplayer puzzle game on the android store

Developing Android Apps - 3 hours 37 min ago

Not sure if this is relevant to this sub. But, I have a pretty unique puzzle game idea and I am wondering if it has any potential (I am obviously not going to share the exact idea here), but it can be played on paper and I find it extremely addicting. I am not experienced in this stuff, so I am wondering what is the potential of such a game on the android store? Note that the game is multiplayer so I guess there is a higher risk? any advice?

Just a reminder that even the best of phones aren't safe from adware and malware

Android - 5 hours 14 min ago

This was on my note 8:

The app that game me the Trojan I downloaded straight from the play store. No third party things involved. The adaware ones were my fault. I tried getting app not on the play store from a third party apk hosting site. As soon as I got a barrage of ads from chrome I knew what had happened and what caused it. The app I used to detect these things was Malwarebytes. I recommend everyone get it for their phones and computers. In my opinion its the absolute best virus scanner out there.

How can I store depersonalized but identifying user data while respecting privacy?

Developing Android Apps - 6 hours 4 min ago

Not ready to share much about my idea just yet, but I'm working on a public goods app which requires logging of certain user info - at minimum GPS position and some sensor data. To account for device-specific differences, at least during development, I might need to log device info like Android version and phone model. I'd also like to keep track of how many devices are using my service. For that last one, I looked into device ID but felt like I was moving into a grey area and hence decided to post this question.

Basically, I intend to depersonalize all collected data and store it in a secure database. However, I still need to be able to "identify" each individual user. On the one hand I feel like collecting everything I can is better in the early (alpha) development stages so as to have more to work with going forward, but on the other hand I want to start it all off with a firm respect for privacy.

tl;dr: What's the recommended way of storing depersonalized but identifying user/device info in a secure database while respecting privacy?
