Android 2.1 WebKit and applicationCache

 Hi all,

I am trying to use the Android 2.1 WebKit applicationCache but I
notice several differences to the iPhone 3/4(beta) implementation. Can
anyone tell me what the current status is and if it is in a usable

Here are  my observations that I can share:

- initial caching works, but instead of sending a checking event first
as on the iPhone, it will just send out the progress events and then
the final cache event
- once you reload the page, it just shows the noupdate event. no
checking before that
- even if you update the manifest, it will not notice that. It seems
webkit on android does not check the manifest after the initial
- forcing an update with applicationCache.update() also does not work.

That leaves the current implementation in a pretty unusable state,
your users would presumably never get an updated cache once the inital
caching has run.

Has anyone else experience with this or knows when applicationCache is
supposed to be fixed/working?

Thanx a lot!

 I would also be interested to know the current state of the applicationCache 
implementation. I am running into issues in the Android browser with going 
offline where I have no issues on Chrome. I think it would also be helpful 
if there was a central place where the statuses of implemented standards 
were layed out by android version so developers knew what they had to work

Hi all, I have been reworking everything for my app and have forgotten
how to access contact phone numbers (which is odd because I believe I am
doing the same thing I did last time I did this). Anyway, any help would
be greatly appreciated. I haven't been able to get any responces for the
last few days and I could really use some pointers. Thanks.

  String name,hasNumber,id;
        ArrayList<String> numbers = new ArrayList<String>();
                name =
                id =
                hasNumber =
                                Cursor pCur =
cr.query(ContactsContract.PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI, null, null,
null, null);
