market://details not working?

 Apparently, I supposed to be able to open the Market page of my app by
querying an intent with an URL like:


where <app_id> seems to be the package name: +Market/thread?tid=5c8501d73226fad8&hl=en

However, while this seems to indeed open the Market app with the
details activity, it always gives me "A Server error occured".

I'm trying both launching the intent through code, as well as on an
adb shell as, say:

am start "market://details?id=com.NamcoNetworks.PacMan"

Neither works.

Any ideas?

 Apparently, I'm supposed to be able to open my app in the Android
market by querying an Intent with an URL like:

See for example: +Market/thread?tid=5c8501d73226fad8&hl=en

However, while this seems to open the Market app's detail page, it
always gives me the "A server error occured" message.

I've tried both using an app:

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);

As well as through the adb shell:

am start "market://details?id=com.NamcoNetworks.PacMan"

 I'm guessing you are working off some old data.

See this page: 

The intent should be a Uri something like market://search?q=pname:<package>
or market://search?q=pub:"<Developer Name>" to see all your apps.

1. RSS - APP

I have an application that read a rss
when I click an item in the rss, it redirects to the browser,
being that I wanted him to open inside my app.

My code is as follows:

protected void onListItemClick (ListView l, View v, int position, long
id) {
                super.onListItemClick (l, v, position, id);
                ViewMessage intent = new Intent (Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
                                Uri.parse (messages.get (position).
getLink (). toExternalForm ()));
                this.startActivity (viewMessage);


2. Problem with integrating Voice Recording with Voice Recognition


Voice search is a feature in my application. User needs to say some
thing for voice recognition. That voice will be recognised and
converted into text through RecognizerIntent. But the problem is, the
sentence which we say, is not gets recording completely. In middle of
speech, application's control is going to recognition. So i turned to
increase the voice recording time , which results the waiting time is
more than earlier.

By using  MediaRecorder class am able to improve the voice recording
time in my other application,  For now i need to integrate voice
recording with voice recognition for my main application. I tried to
do so, but am not getting any output. If anyone have an idea about
this, please let me know.
Any response would be appreciated.

Best Regards
