Android is Deleting my MP3 Files
Saturday 05th of November 2011
Hi. I'm new to Android phones and I'm having trouble with either Android, or the default Music Player. I copied some MP3 files to the Android phone from my Linux PC (I mounted the phone on the PC, and copied the files from the command line with 'cp'). This was fine and the music files played fine.However, later I mounted the phone again on the PC and moved some of those files on the Android phone to a different directory. Afterwards, I unmounted the phone and tried to play the same files, they were gone. I mounted the Android phone on the PC and looked, and they were indeed, nowhere to be found.I did a similar thing later with other files, and this time Android didn'tdelete the files, but replaced them with empty 0-byte files.What am I doing wrong? Why are MP3 files being deleted? Is this a problem with the default Music Player app, or with Android itself (this is version 2.34 of Android)? Is there a manual somewhere I can read that explains why this happens?
Spacetime Studios: Pocket Legends on Android Generates 30%-50% More Revenue than iOS Version
Tuesday 08th of March 2011
We bet you’ve probably heard that there is no money to be made in Android. As a potential developer, hearing this might make you think twice about writing for a platform that is supposed to hold so much promise. The only guys making money are Rovio, right? Wrong. Spacetime Studios and its popular 3D MMO, Pocket Legends is doing quite alright, thanks to their Android app. In fact, the robot-powered version is making considerably more cheddar than the iOS counterpart.Spacetime says that, with roughly 9,000 daily downloads, the level of activity on Android is nearly double what the Apple flavor sees. Not only are we Android folks downloading the game, but we’re engaging in it and using it at a rate of three time the Apple version. How does this add up to dollars for the developer? In-app purchases, silly. Considering that Android does not yet offer a seamless purchasing experience within applications (Apple does), it’s pulling in 30 to 50 percent more revenue than iOS.“We’ve just been blown away,” says Spacetime CEO Gary Gattis. “Andr
Android Forums - View Single Post - Confirmed: Angry Birds for Android
Friday 27th of August 2010
I found this thread from a Google search regarding Angry Birds, because I've been wondering what's happened to it too.However, reading all the above I felt I'd correct some gross inaccuracies. Whilst I thought tamxey1's businessman comment and such was a little arrogant, those responding are wrong on so many things that I thought I'd at least clarify some of the more obvious ones related to my area of expertise.I'm a lead software developer at an engineering firm, I develop in C# .NET currently, but have experience developing in C, C++, x86 assembly and Java professionally as well as experience with a bunch of other languages in my spare time. Importantly though, I have experience developing for both Android and iOS in my spare time. Ultimately it is johnlgalt's post which I take objection to the most, he has cited many links from Wikipedia, but he has jumped and come to completely the wrong conclusions based on what he has read.First up is the assertion that because Objective-C stems from C that C experience inherently means that C experience, of which there is 40 years of maps dire

Do you like steak- No- Then get out of this post right now – because it’s Steak Time.Omaha Steaks has had their popular app "Steak Time" on iOS for a while now, and it was only a matter of time before an Android version emerged.

Receiving texts at wrong times
Monday 07th of June 2010
First of all, this is my first android device and I am absolutely loving it. I also tried searching on this topic and couldn't find any information. Basically the issue I am having is once in awhile the text messages I receive will come in at a time that is 5 hours from the current time. For example, If the current time is 12:32 all the text messages I receive will say 5:32. The ones I send are at the correct time, but received is wrong. I usually fix this by power cycling my phone but I was just wondering if anyone knew what could cause this. Thanks in advance.
Firefox Mobile... why is the mobile version so horrible?
Monday 02nd of December 2013
It's true that on the desktop my favorite web browser is Chrome and has been for quite some time, but I have traditionally been a big fan of Firefox. I started using it before it went to Version 1, and I still have a Firefox 1.0 release t-shirt. So, my point is I've had a long and (for the most part) satisfied relationship with it. But Firefox on Android is horrible. Every time you go to type in something in a text field, unless it's coded as being something like a username, password, or other text field, you get a litany of autofills of everything you've ever typed before. It fills up the screen and you can't see a single other thing. And the only way to shut it off is to go into a specialized section of options and search for an obscure feature and toggle it to disabled. Without googling for this, you'd never find it in a million years. Also, when you try to type in a text field, under various circumstances you're not where the cursor says you are. It starts either overwriting other text or you are typing in the wrong spot. This happens on various message boards (such as this one)

"Clock" App or widget shows wrong time
Wednesday 10th of September 2014
Hi Guys.First android mobile for me that I got second hand. The only annoying thing so far is the time on the home screen is off by and hour and a couple of minutes. I tried removing the battery for 30 seconds, and the option which automatically gets time from provider. There is a "Clock" app which has a few options and one of them takes me to the home screen where the time is wrong.The Clock App also shows that same wrong time. I can only set an alarm and I am unable to change the actual time.There has to be a way to Synch the time to the phone's system time (which is CORRECT). I have read many people with these problems and I tried a few of the "easy" fixes, like "airplane mode" and changing the option for automatic to unchecked, and then rechecking it... removing battery, rebooting phone, etc. Please help. Thanks. It is an Optimus Net LG P690b aka Optimus Link (I think) Thank you in advance!
