project with Android. I have been reading 3 mailing lists for sometimes and
I would be very thankfull if you guys can show some potential research areas
with respect to the Android.




Request for potential research areas.

 There were a lot of ideas discussed in the android-discuss group. In
particular looks for posts dated around Feb - Apr 2008 (ADC1 timeline).

Some ideas:

To send out emergency signals during disasters, and when networks are down.
To sense emergency situations and send out distress calls.
To locate and track kids.
To go green. Share rides, locate public transports etc.,
To save time. Find nearest restaurants and reserve tables etc.,
Location based contextual information. Get relevant stuff as you move around
your location.
Social Networking - discover exciting new networks in your location.
Travel - Use camera, sensor, google earth etc., and find out real geo
location infos.

Given Android capabilites like bluetooth, gps, accelerometer etc., you have
to think a bit and see how these capabilites can be applied in alleviating
real life problems.

As i said, search the android-discuss group for more ideas. Good luck.

take care,

1. ADC2: Low volume of judges

1) This belongs to android-discuss, it has nothing to do with
developing apps using the public SDK :)
2) TV adds? Are you kidding us or you really want to have TV ads in
all countries where Android phones are sold? :)

2. zipalign : could be done at distribution or installation time ?

I don't think market will ever run it (it really doesn't want to make any
changes to the apps it is distributing).  At some time in the future we'd
like to consider having the platform do it during install, but this is a
lower priority than a lot of other things.  If someone wants to contribute
code to do it, I am sure we'd be interested.
