 So was the Device Seeding Program ( 
google-handing-out-free-nexus-ones-and-droids-to-top-android-devs/) a
one-shot thing, or is it ongoing?

I suddenly have a specific personal interest in the answer, as my app
( ) has just hit those
magic numbers...

1. SyncManager questions -- network connectivity

I've written an app that utilizes the sync manager and I'm very happy
with it (so far).  We have given our users the ability to request a
sync and I understand SyncManager managing those sync requests (across
the device).  I guess I was a little mistaken in assuming the
SyncManager wouldn't fire the sync request to my adapter if there was
no network connectivity, but from my testing it looks like that
assumption was wrong.

How should this be handled?  I'd really prefer the SyncManager to
queue up those sync requests and fire them when data connectivity is
available.  Is this something I should handle in the sync adapter, not
attempting the sync if there's no connectivity?  Are there any best
practices/patterns for this need?

Thanks in advance.


2. Android AppWidget and App Single Signon


I have an App and an AppWidget associated with it. The AppWidget is
updated by an Update Service. Everything works fine but what I really
want to implement is that the AppWidget should only start getting
updates only when the User has logged in/signed in, much like the
Facebook/Twitter Application and AppWidget functionality on Android.
If the User is not logged in, the Widget will show "Please log in" or
something. Is there a standard way to implement this functionality in

Any help is much appreciated.
