 This is happening on my free app though.  Big time.  I've lost 17% so far.

 I have 21,600 downloads.  A 17% drop in active installs over the past few
days means over 3600 people uninstalled the app.  Just doesn't make sense
when all data before this time was trending at the 77% level whereas now it
is at 60%.

 I saw someone suggest that the downloads generated from an update are
failing.   I noticed this with ProjectInf.   I cannot get it to download
even after a reboot.   This means that as far as the market is concerned
I've uninstalled it.    I would put more faith in this explanation if others
are seeing the same thing.    I had just done an update and I started
dropping install base.   No one has come forth and said anything about not
getting the update either.

 Bah (sorry to hijack)

If you can't download the new ProjectINF, we can post it somewhere for you
to download...

 I was just pointing it out as an example of what might be going on.
Honestly I can't get into it.   I love all your other games and am jealous
of the "chat" feature though.

 My stats trended the same way as you reported.  My app was updated targeting
the 1.5 sdk with minsdkversion = 3.  No changes have been made to those
settings since I released the app almost 2 months ago.

Same here.  I released my app targeting 1.5 and haven't ever changed it.

 Anyone here how long till they get it fixed? I dropped from 86% active
to 41%. Also, if you ever wanted to know if the amount of active users
affects you ranking in the market, it sure does. One of my programs
fell 15 spots.

 I am trying to space updates around once a week but since I'm in beta I do
update major issues right away.  Hopefully the people that are using the
game are not getting annoyed and understand that frequent updates will be
the norm for awhile.

There's been no fix from Google, just that one person confirming the
problem followed by weeks of silence.

1. Approach to cache large amount of Textual and audio data in Android application

Hi:

We are supposed to cache textual and audio data in our application
until device is booted or maximum of two days, whichever happens
earlier. To get a perspective on data to be cached, note that we are
to store about 200 text headers containing around 10 fields, each of
length 30 bytes and about 20 sound files each about a minute long.

We are getting the textual data by parsing XMLs and then we keep them
in ArrayLists. The sound files are directly written inside the app
storage using File I/O (and not on SDcard or Apps Cache directory).

This application is to be run on devices running Android 1.5 or later.

I understand, and please correct me if I am wrong, that we can cache
the files either on SDcard or inside the application or inside
applications Cache directory.


I have the following questions regarding how do we approach Caching?

1. Should we persist the textual data in applications SQLite database
or should we use Java Serialization mechanism and persist the List
objects(which constitute Serializable components) inside the
application?
2. Where should we write the text data /sound files - inside
application, cache or SD card?
3. Can all of these be saved to applications cache directory? How big
can the cache directory grow?
4. Can we specify a time span to Android Runtime for which a cache is
maintained? Or would we have to do this manually?

Please help and advise.

Thanks.

2. Filter for crapps (crap apps)

Does anyone know if there is some sort of filter funktion, either in
Andoid Market itself or in/as an app? I am SO tired of flipping
through all those weird and for me totally useless "View pictures when
you end a call" and others telling me that those jap girls are so cute
and for real men..... I am too old to change horse in the middle of
the stream ;=) So a filter would be nice, either by the name of the
app (JOON APPS, sowallpaper or the likes) or by the website of the
origin. If it is not possible, I would be willing to pay 10 bucks for
a filter like that on Android Market - are you listening,
developers???  ;=)
