Like video games, manufacturers should "remaster" phones with modern specs & features. Eg. Nexus 4

Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 08:10

I remembered using the Nexus 4, it was a beauty back in it's days with pretty well rounded specs. It was the first phone that got me started on the pure Android experience trend.

The design was outstanding, it had a glass back with a pretty carbon texture underneath it. Rubbersied material on the side of the phone for good grip. No camera bumps, pretty miniscule side bezels. It's just so goddamn pretty to look at.

But of course the specs are very outdated now. I would love to see manufacturers, however impossible it might be, to remaster the phone, keep the same beautiful design, but change the internals, give it the latest Snapdragon processor, a good increase in RAM, upgrade the camera and storage, best of all keep it stock Android and we might just have a one hell of a phone again. Not just Nexus 4, this could be applied to many smartphones out there.

[Help] Unable to delete a system file

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 08:02

So, after finally getting HTTP Get to work, I'm trying to replace the original hosts file with the one that's downloaded periodically. I've tried everything, the built in Move, copy and remove file functions, mv and rm shell commands, but it always gives an error. Yes, I did enable "Use Root".

Error when I use the built in Move function: https://pastebin.com/CC7frG2p

Error when I use the built in Delete file function: https://pastebin.com/6fFUuLXB

I've got a Rooted Galaxy S7 running Stock 7.0 ROM. I'm using SuperSU rather than Magisk, if that makes a difference.

New to reactive programming and MVVM - Where to start?

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 06:26

I'm ashamed to say that I've been working on Android for more than 5 years and yet I don't know 'proper' code, at least by this sub's standards.

I'm trying to learn Reactive programming and MVVM. Where should I start? I'd also love to learn data binding with this.

P.S. I don't know what immutable objects are, what a singleton is, or what an interface is. I need a comprehensive guide.

I made an app that lets you talk about movies and shows with your friends, so you don't have to think about what to watch next.

Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 06:20

A lot of times I have no idea what to watch e.g. on Netflix, and I figured most of the stuff I watch comes from my friends' recommendations, so I made Voxy and it lets you create a list of movies and shows you'd like to watch from your friends' recommendations. So instead of them having to recommend stuff in person, you can talk about, and create a list of, movies and shows you want to watch in the app. The idea is to just always have great list of what to watch next.

You also share reviews of your favourite movies and shows with your friends. If you add a show to your watchlist you'll automatically be notified whenever it's about to air.

Here are the features Voxy comes with:

  • Review any movie you've watched and give it a rating.
  • Review any entire show or just a season and give it a rating.
  • Invite your friends and follow them to be notified when they post reviews.
  • See your friends' reviews on what they watch.
  • Have real-time threaded discussions about the reviews.
  • View movie and show details including overviews, budgets, revenues and cast information.
  • Add any movie or show you'd like to watch to your watchlist.
  • Include other people's reviewed movies and shows in your watchlist.
  • Track the movies and shows you're watching.
  • Get notified whenever shows in your watchlist are about to air.
  • View all the latest movies and shows, and easily add them to your watchlist.
  • See top reviews made by other Voxy users.

The app is still in beta. I'm posting this to get feedback on the app, some early users, any suggestions for changes, anything I missed, pretty much anything will be helpful.

Here's the link to the app.

Thanks :-)

Play store changes - are apps unpublished or deleted?

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 06:15

The Play store occasionally changes required data or requests declarations to be made.

The Google Play Developer Program Policy Updates tend to say "If you find any existing apps in your catalog that don't comply, please fix the app and submit it again, or unpublish the app within 30 days of receiving this email."

However, declarations like IARC content rating or Primarily Child-Directed Declaration tend to say "After (date), apps that have not made a declaration may be removed from Google Play."

Does anyone know or have experience of whether the declarations will cause unpublished apps to be removed (assume actually deleted?) from Google Play? Or when they say "removed from Google Play" are they just referring to the app being unpublished?

Be able to pinch-to-zoom on a ImageView

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 04:51

Hi,

I found multiple libraries to be able to use "pinch-to-zoom" on an ImageView, but I'm asking myself if there is no other standard ways to do this.

Note: I'm using Kotlin, so if the "use a lib" is the right answer, do you know a lib for that usage written in Kotlin? Just a design matter, I will go as always with the Java-interop if it doesn't exist.

It's amazing how much scrolling behavior influences the feel of a device

Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 03:19

I recently flashed an Oreo ROM that felt really great and smooth when scrolling, more than my Nougat ROM. It did have some issues though so I had to move back to my Nougat ROM but still wanted that scrolling behavior back.

After searching around for a bit, I found a 4yr old Xposed module called XUI. I've used Xposed in the past but never had a reason to keep using it until now.

Crazy enough, it still works on Nougat, or at least the features I needed, mainly scrolling friction and fling velocity. It's infinitely variable so you can fine tune it to your taste; I'm a sucker for the glassy long coast time feeling, and moved to 50, from 150 that my ROM was stock.

I didn't mess with any other features in that module other than scrolling cache set to animation and scrolling, under listview options, since being so old, I'm pretty sure it's possible to break the ROM.

I just figured I'd let some people know how to modify scrolling behavior, since it's something I've always wanted to be able to do, and really has a significant impact on how the device feels to use, in my opinion.

Tasker alarm clock help

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 01:26

I made a small script for an alarm clock and I was wondering if it is possible to change the activation time with a widget or something similar.

Basically the script activates at a specific time, wakes up the phone, unlocks it, starts the UE boom app and then turns on the UE boom. After a waiting period I then use a second script to launch Spotify and play a specific playlist.

Basically what I want, is a simpler (more creative maybe?) method of setting the wakeup time than going into Tasker and changing the time there

Here is the first script: https://imgur.com/gallery/Q1r1s

advice poll app for a complete novice

Developing Android Apps - Sun, 01/14/2018 - 01:25

So I'm not a developer and i never done any app, I'm a trainee for the it department in a maintenance-machine company.

So the problem rigth now is that we have a set of operators that periodically visit some machine in our clients facilities, this particular visits are just rutinary ones, they collect some basic information from the machine, date, fluid levels, working hours etc.

Then we use this info to schedule a proper maintenance for that particular machine. so far so good.

The problem right now is that that info takes to long to reach us and then it has to be captured into digital data which at the moment is done by hand.

As an improvement I'm trying to push the implementation of an app that can do the job of a poll machine, now the catch is that not all the machines are the same and the app will probably need to be dynamic for the machine the operator is working with.

so the question is if there is a tool for android that would let me do this easily .

things that would be nice to have:

  • allow me to deploy updates or add a new poll for a new machine easily

  • customize final data to be added to a particular data base

  • geopositional info ?

is this too complex? is this something that needs an app developer?

any advice is appreciated thanks
