Android notifications from JSON endpoint?

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 14:36

I'm new to android development, and I've been wanting to implement notifications in my app. I've been reading online quite a bit but haven't found anything that helps me. I've got an JSON endpoint that returns multiple datetimes. I want my app to give me a notification whenever i hit one of those datetimes. But the datetimes can also move around a bit, so i need it to keep that in mind too. For a bit of context: I've got a JSON endpoint that returns datetimes of rocket launches, and i want it to notify me whenever a launch is about to happen.
Can anyone recommend me where to begin? Or does anyone have an article for me to read that would help me with this specific case? Thanks! :)

Android Internals

Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 14:08

Inspiration for these came from the many "iPhone internals" wallpapers floating around. I wanted one for myself and made a few of the Google Pixel XL. Thought I could make more, so here they are!

All original photo credit goes to iFixit and their incredible teardown guides. I skewed, cropped, color graded, and enlarged their material to make these.

I understand that some of them are "backwards". Many new phones use their screen literally as the midframe. Removing it shows a boring piece of metal, making all interesting circuit board pics "backward". I worked with what I had and hope y'all like them :)

New to android dev, not new to programming - Java or Kotlin

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 14:03


So as title says, I'm completely new to pure android dev, but I'm not new to programming. I do have an experience in Web Dev and some mobile dev (React Native), but not much on native side. I'd like to learn a native development and here my question arises - should I start with Java or go straight to Kotlin?

I checked those two and I must say that Kotlin looks more better in terms of code reading and is not as verbose as Java is.

In your experience/knowledge, what could you suggest me to go with?

No mobile app for firebase analytics?

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 11:35

I integrated Firebase Analytics in an app (as opposed to the usual Google Analytics) and I noticed I can't see the reports on the "Google Analytics" mobile app. No firebase apps show up. This is a pretty bad problem because I'd like to monitor my app on my phone.

Am I doing something wrong? Any input is appreciated.

Open apps and play a playlist?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 11:20

Okay, someone must've done these before, so could someone point me in the right direction? I'd like to automate my morning workout routine.

I want to: 1. Open a music player and play my workout playlist (folder) 2. Open a timer app (multi timer) and start a specific countdown timer. 3. Open 2 other apps (a fitness tracker - fitnotes, and Google images) automatically. 4. All at a given time

Is this possible? I've looked at Tasker and Automate. Is there another app that can do this that I might actually be able to easily use? Because Tasker and Automate, both look like they'll take quite a while to learn.

How would one turn an Android device into a dedicated controller?

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 11:17

Modern fancy cars like the new Audi A8 often have those detachable tablets in the back that are used to control all the luxury features. I assume that they're running some sort of heavily stripped-down Android system, since no one would realistically bother to develop their own from scratch.

How could one achieve a similar effect with a regular Android tablet to use in for example a DIY smart home project? Assuming we're OK with the system retaining the usual Android home screen, menus, etc but getting rid of unnecessary features? How about if we aimed to replicate the "limo control panel" effect more closely and have it run only a single app apart from the wireless connectivity needed to function?

Which Android phone has held up throughout the years best?

Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 11:16

So pretty much the title. What Android phone of yours has held up the best (battery, performance, physical wear)? I feel like my One M7 held up the best while my Galaxy S6 held up the worst. I had both for a bit over a year I think.

Automated Wifi Hotspot on Samsung S7

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 08:54


I recently downloaded tasker, and have been trying to set up a profile that will automatically create a hotspot under certain conditions. Here's what I'm trying to accomplish:

I have a Samsung Galaxy S 7 and a Surface Pro. Whenever the Surface Pro isn't connected to another Wifi-network, I want the S7 to set up a Wifi-hotspot the Surface Pro can connect to.

I've been thinking that a nice way to do this would be to set up a profile that would launch the hotspot when the S7 is connected to the Surface Pro (Bluetooth) AND isn't connected to a Wifi-network (if the S7 is connected to a Wifi-network, the Surface will be too). But I can't figure out how to set this up in tasker. Any ideas?
