 Downloaded it right now and saw your post just after that. Great job, Bob.
The portfolio was kinda depressing.. Oh no, wait.. that's because of the
stocks in the portfolio :(

Overall the app looks sleek and simple. I love it.

 I still believe there is a need to host those application files in
other places as well in addition to Android Market.....because users
using Android device without Android Market simply can't get
them........The problem will definitely become more apparent when more
Android hardware hits the market.....since the market apk is not
available to all manufacturers.

 Agree, at least the Android Market with free apps should be freely available
for installation in Android devices. The free Android market can be part of
the open source build, and the premium version can be kind of a plugin which
is close sourced.

 Not having an app directory on the device is something that definatley 
frustrates users as you can see at the postings in the Koolu forum at ;t=62 (registration required).


P.S. I would do the shameless plug, but everyone can see the site that 
Koolu and NITdroid are using in my signature near the bottom of this email.

1. Google Visualizations don't render in Android browser.

My company uses Visualizations to draw dynamic charts (not images).
These display properly in every other webkit browser (including mobile
safari). For some reason they charts do not display in the android
browser (they do however work in Opera mini).

I'm happy to share my code/samples with any dev willing to work on
this. Right now I have to tell my customers to use a Palm or iPhone to
get mobile access to their analytics.

2. (un)registerReceiver not giving expected results.

Hi all,

I would like to register a broadcast receiver on onStart of an
activity and then unregister the receiver when the activity gets
onStop called. When I debug I see that both of these calls are made
when I expected, but for some reason, my broadcast receiver keeps
handling intents.

Can someone please enlighten me as to why the receiver is still
processing intents, even when I have called unregistered the receiver?

Best regards,


public class Main extends Activity {
        private static final String SMS_RECEIVED

        SMSReceiver r;
        IntentFilter smsFilter ;
        int resume = 0;
        int pause = 0;

        public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
                r = new SMSReceiver();
                smsFilter = new IntentFilter();

        protected void onStart() {
                this.registerReceiver(r, smsFilter);

        protected void onStop() {

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android=""
    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/
        <activity android:name=".Main"
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
