Depending on how frequently you want to or can tweet :
* Hot topic or most informative post (if it can be quantified)
* A tip or gotcha
* A Programming question
* Book review
* Newsletter updates?
* Links to tutorials or articles
* optional and occasional advertising of one of apps/ tools/ certification software that fellow rancher might have written.
* Best of MD as already suggested.
* Site updates?

Personally, I will prefer any subset of these.

App drawer is a different application (Launcher.apk) and this application gets to decide how it draws the presentation. So unless this application exposes a way to affect its display, your app running in different process cannot do much.

The only option you have, as you have already found out, is to recompile the Launcher app and replace it on the device. Or, choose a different Launcher altogether.

ADT for Eclipse is decent enough and has evolved a lot over time. If you are using IntelliJ IDEA, Android studio is also helpful. Droiddraw has also been around for a long time.

Per Romain Guy, the person who wrote this class :

there is absolutely no guarantee on the order in which getView() will be called nor how many times.

Don't write code that makes assumptions that getView() would be called only once per row.

If you solicit help you should ask questions properly. Also, let everyone know what you are trying to do.


TelephonyManager.getNeighboringCellInfo() return a List of neighboring cell information in a NeighboringCellInfo object, including Received Signal Strength and Cell ID location.
Since, you have mentioned the name of the function, I assume you are doing the same. Can you post some source code?

Have you added necessary ACCESS_COARSE_UPDATES permission?

Gabriela Radu : Understand the reason why your approach did not work?
The "asset" folder is not part of Android file system but your app.

As an aside, it is not advisable to pass large Bitmaps in Intent extras. You will run into all sort of issues.

Read about the generic Intent.ACTION_VIEW and how it works in conjunction with and then read up on the use of Intent.createChooser().

Niklas: what exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to check if a certain IP is reachable from your phone?
From what I have heard, InetAddress#isReachable() might not work as one might expect.

If you are connecting to remote servers over HTTP, one of the approaches could be setting appropriate ConnectionTimeOut and SocketTimeOut parameters. If you get ConnectionTimeOut or SocketTImedOut Exceptions you can show an informational popup to the user saying "Limited Connectivity or Slow connection".

Apparently, this problem has got nothing to do with the medium by which the hardware is connected with internet. The problem is one of the intermediate certificates from the Servers certificate chain are missing from the Keystore on the client.

The interesting thing about this is that this error is not flagged every time but is intermittent.
