Is there a recommended method for app updates?

 Hi all,

I heard from some users that they need to check the Market updates. My 
question is if there is standard, or recommended way of checking for app 
updates? My impression is that Android would greatly benefit if all apps 
used the same API to do this.

1. OpenIntent Simulator - Get black screen when selecting SensorSimulator


I am trying to run the openintent sensor simulator on Windows XP, SDK
1.5, (Google API).

I get a black screen whenever I open the sensorsimulator application
on my emulator, while it looks like I should get a screen asking me
for an IP address.

They are numerous reports of this issue on the openintent website, but
nobody seems to have an anser there.
Anybody knows what should be done to fix this issue?



2. How do I access a URI such as content://drm/audio/2 (which is a ringtone)

Hi all,
I am trying to play a ringtone that is specified as the Default system
ringtone.  Unfortunately when i get the actual URI I get the above
(content://drm/audio/2) and then when I try to play it, I hear the
fallback ringtone - the one that you'd hear if the default was

Ringtones appear to get this URI when downloaded through sites such as
Myxer and the like.

Now it seems that when the default ringtone is on the SD card under a
folder called 'ringtones' I do not run into this problem.

I have tried to add the line:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_DRM" /> the manifest but that doesn't seem to work either.

If anyone has an idea as how I would be able to play this ringtone, I
would be eternally grateful!  I have been researching this and I can't
seem to find anywhere any documentation on how to do this.

Thank you,
