I can't find much related to it except for articles, some mention that it was in the test stage, is it still not public?

[Help] Action on alarm clock

I want to send a message over MQTT in the morning when (or better - before) the alarm clock rings. The problem is - the action which I set isn't starting until I unlock my phone screen.

It has been already a few threads about this, so I have already tried: set "run in foreground", "reliable alarms". I excluded tasker from battery optimisations and allowed "Autostart".

What else can I try? Maybe I could send the time of the next alarm right when I set it? This seems like a relatively easy task, so I hope there is a proper solution for me.

Every OEM have a great opportunity for putting out a great Android tablet experience in 2019, but most probably no one will use it

Android - 7 hours 47 min ago

In 2017 Razer showed off a prototype laptop which was actually a shell that can be powered by a Razer Phone.

In 2018 Produced a smaller but similar accessory for the ROG Phone.

Similar ideas were previously shown in Sony Xperia S tv doc and Samsung Dex

In all the cases we can see it is possible to extend the display of Android devices and Have next to none input/output latency.

This means we can have a Microsoft Surface styled device which can just be a shell with an opening on its back to fit in a phone and then the shell can be used as a full fledged tablet.

I want tasker to buy a stock for me given specific parameters

I made a profile to read notifications from Yahoo Finance and detect if a stock I'm watching goes down by x%, and I was wondering how i could make it open up my Robinhood app and buy that stock. Is this possible?

Something I hate more about the whole 'chin' deal

Android - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 22:39

Put something on the chin(not the logo):

  • put capacitive buttons

  • Or something like Motorola's gesture + FP sensor

(instead of putting the pill/navigation bar on the screen, where it takes up vertical space, similar with the whole deal with the notch)

  • or speakers

  • or hell, a camera

(at least then the upper portion of the body can be mostly clean)

This is coming from someone who doesn't really care about the whole bezel-less craze, I just want something useful there, instead of just having the company's logo(or nothing) there.

Good tutorial for a "follow-along development" of an (advanced) Android app?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 22:35

Do you guys know of any tutorials that place its focus on building a single app, as opposed to just teaching concepts / solving vacuum problems? I'm a entry-level developer looking to take my skills further, but always get stuck in the design / idea phase of making my own apps, so i'd like something with that already laid out for me. Something i'd be interested in building along to would be a social networking / messaging application. Any suggestions? Please note that i want something advanced, and not for beginners.

Is keyword stuffing in app descriptions ok now?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 21:56

I sometimes look at the other apps in my niche/category and see what they are doing.

And I just happened to find 3 competing apps that are keyword stuffing and using other app's brand names in their app descriptions.

They have put a list of over a 100 lines of possible keyword combinations, along with other app brand names and other searchable keywords that have no relationship to what the app is about at all.

I was very surprised to see this, and wondered why they hadn't been automatically rejected when they were submitted originally.

Is Google Play now allowing this?

Looking for a wireless touch tablet monitor for my android embedded board

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 21:36

I am working on a project where I need to have a bunch of usb cameras and IO devices connected to an embedded board and will display on a wireless tablet. Pretty much a Android tablet but without the actually running android and will diplay and send input to the embedded board.

Are there any wireless touchscreen tablet like devices out there? I know I should probably use a tablet for this purpose but I would prefer to keep it simple with one android/linux host in the system.

how to control several Page and for good architecture?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 20:42

I want to implement several page app with good architecture page control and MVVM

[Intro view] -> [A Page] -> [B Page] -> [C Page] -> [Intro View : Repetitively]

-> [D Page] -> [E Page] -> [Intro View :Repetitively]

[Another scenario] -> [C Page :directly]

i have one solution, just launching Activity.

a. Intro can launch A or D Page(Activity)

b. A can Only launch B or back to intro

b. B can Only launch C or back to A

b. C have Done button

Is there a better way to do this?(just launching activity or historical back)

and i hope to apply Kotlin and MVVE and Dagger2.

Help with android studio?

Developing Android Apps - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 20:01

(Just let me know If I posted this in the wrong place and I'll fix it)
So, I have been at this since Monday and my patience is running a bit thin for Android studio.
I have been googling related topics and issues that other people have had, nothing I had found or changed fixed it.
So first when I was trying to run the emulator and setting it up to run on my computer, I have turned on VT-X in my BIOS setup as it asked, and I have downloaded version 7.3.2 of Intel 86x Emulator Accelerator(HAXM installer) as it asked, running that gave me an error but before I could read it, I got The blue screen. I simply restarted my computer and everything is fine, then when I started Android studio again it told me there was a fatal error with the IDE.
I still have some information to give if needed.
(Also, I am a beginner to programming, I started practicing with C++ then shifted over to Java, I'm reading a book called Sams Teach Yourself Java in 24 Hours, by Rogers Cadenhead)

Windows 10 Pro, version 1803 (OS Build 17134.471)
Thanks in advance for any help.

How to I send data to node red using Tasker?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 19:01

I'm using http post to connect to node red and that seems to work (it'll display a blank notification or blank text when I hit play on Tasker) but I don't know how to display the data on the dashboard.

Don't suggest join. I tried it and it doesn't work/cost money.

Edit: Title How DO I send data...
