 Customer says that he can't download my free app and gets the message.

"Cannot download to this device"

Is this yet another glitch in the Android Market for which he needs to
go to Android Market Support and be ignored?

Or is there something I, or the customer can do about it?

Is that what the customer told you? Is (s)he sure about that message? I
wouldn't be surprised if that's their *interpretation* of whatever error
they're getting.

I've asked if that is the exact wording.

I sure wish customers could take screen shots.

 Nathan, why don't you publish your free app outside the market place
as well?
Its always better to have direct relationship with the users of your

1. Google App Inventor

Bikin apps yuk. Diliat dari videonya (klik link dibawah) keliatannya
gampang :). Tinggal idenya aja.


Google is launching a new tool on Monday that lets anyone create an
app for Android phones.

Google App Inventor claims to enable non-coders to develop complete,
working Android apps by connecting a series of locks Google has
been testing App Inventor in schools for a year, reports the NYTimes.
At the time of writing, App Inventor is only available to those who
apply via a form.

The concept is a smart one: Not only is the Android Market an open
platform for developers (with no approval process, ala the App Store),
but now wel likely see a vast array of specialized apps built by non-
developers. This could radically increase the volume of apps in the
Market versus the App Store.

The expansion may of course come at the cost of quality: Wel see
thousands of new Android apps, but will they be of a ookie cutternature, offering very little value? There is, however, an upside in
the long-term: If App Inventor is so simple that schoolchildren can
make apps, some those same children will soon become coders themselves
and perhaps choose to develop android apps rather than iPhone.

What do you think? Is App Inventor a winning play on Google part?

2. Best Approach to implementing Polling in Android

Hi All:

I am required to work on an application which is be deployed on
devices running Android 1.5. The application is supposed to maintain a
connection with a server and regularly poll it for new data. The
server will notify the client of new data following which the client
will connect to the server and download the data.

I know that ideally a push based approach will be more conducive here
given that we are to run this on a mobile platform. Also, from
Android2.2 there is going to be support for C2DM(Cloud to Cloud device
Messaging) but as already mentioned this application is for devices
running Android1.5.

I was thinking of using AlarmManager which would Broadcast Intents
periodically(poll interval), The Broadcast receiver will then try to
connect to the remote server and make data changed check. If the
server has an update, the thread will connect to the remote server and
download the data from the server.

Problem and Issues:
1. Is this the right way to approach the problem?
2. Is AlarmManager reliable? Would it remember Alarms after a device
boot? (I think it does)
3. How do I ensure that battery usage is kept at minimum.(I have heard
something about using "keep-alive" to sustain the session for longer
time..what is this legend?)
4. What are other things that I need to consider? I am sure I must be
missing lots of things here.

Please help.
