 Hey guys, I'm trying to create an application where I need to check if
an application has been started. So for example, if the calendar was
clicked, before the calendar came up, my application would start up.
Is there any way to do this?

1. Restricted access to Content Provider

I'm trying to give limited access to another application to my

I have two special tables. In one I want to give the opportunity only
to record data, the second - to hide completely. Other tables can be
read there and you can record the data to them.

If I just add to the provider permissions to read and write, then the
client will add them to his apps manifest file using <uses-
permission>  and has full access to my ContentProvider.

How can i restrict access to only two tables?

Thank you!


2. Android Context Sensitive Keyboard

So, i'm putting the finishing touches on a new android keyboard (as if
we needed one more, lol) and i was trying to get some insight into how
some keyboards know to present a .com key on the keyboard when you are
in the browser and not present it when you are say doing a google
search??? Any links to anything on the android developers website or
sample code elsewhere is appreciated in advance.
