Suggestion for Google team to improve Android Market

I see several possible solutions with the existing model:

a) You invalidate an app after a certain amount of time so that it
rejects to run (quite hackish and not very great wrt updates, etc).

b) You don't sell your app but provide it for free, though you charge
for the service it uses in some other way like paypal or google
checkout or whatever appears to be suitable.

Though in general I like the idea, but it'll need technical overhead
to make it work and I doubt Google would be interested in doing that.
Perhaps an opportunity for some 3rd party...

Kind regards,

1. Porting Andoid Apps

Hi everybody,

I am developing a game and I tested it in my HTC HERO.
Everything works fine !

I thought that it will be OK for all android phones because I carried
about screen's density and size.

When I launched my game on a Nexus One, I had a memory leak issue.
This was normal because I use many Bitmaps at the same time and code
wasn't optimized ...

How can I be sure that my game will work fine in other devices I
didn't tried (Samsung, HTC, SonyEricsson)  ??

Someone already had an issue when porting applications from a device
to another one ?

Thanks !


2. Connecting a DSLR camera via PTP on Android

Hi guys,

How are you doing? This is my first message, I'm not a developer, I'm
just a Brazilian photographer with a poor English, crazy ideas and
some kind of understanding of what we could do in the future (or
not) :) and I'm here to ask you help or some tips to follow with my
busy developers friends here in Sao Paulo.

I'm trying to find a way to connect my DSLR camera to Android. I know
that today it's not possible because there's no suport to PTP (Picture
Transfer Protocol) or MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) on Android - as
you guys have already said before 
-, but let me try to explain why this could be a good thing to have

I've developed a simple script that monitors a folder on my notebook
and send the JPG files (low resolution images) through mail to flickr
or picasa. My intention is to publish the images automatically
straight out of my DSLR camera connected to any kind of phone, modem,
whatever. Today I can do that with a notebook, but It's kind of clumsy
to shoot with a Macbook on my back and a 3G modem hung. Android phones
would be perfect just because it's open source! I could never imagine
that with an iPhone or Windows Mobile.

I'm trying to find a cheap solution like an app that in the future
could be sold on Android Market to any photo-journalist, press
company, {*filter*}r or whoever (if anyone create this, please give me
the credit for the idea at least... LOL).

I can see some issues following this idea:
- MTP support
- Transfer speed
- RAW files + JPGs
- Storage
- Multi-tasking

Why do I insist on MTP/PTP? Because all professional cameras uses it
as a default protocol to comunicate, send files. Yes, there's some
very expensive solutions that can send files through wi-fi but I think
that wi-fi doesn't solve my problem, the perfect world could have a 3G
modem stuck right in the camera to publish the content in real time.
Today with my DSLR + PTP + Macbook + 3G I can shoot and publish with a
delay of 30 seconds :)

Transfer speed
Professional cameras has powerful image processors that delivers files
in high resolution. Imagine process raw files with a JPG low
resolution version at the same time with 8 frame per second! If a
camera has 12 megapixels the transfer of these images will be
something like 96 megabytes per second. I don't know, I'm just
guessing without knowing if there's mobile hardware that can handle
this, my guess tells me that it's quite impossible, isn't it?

My camera can generate 2 images of each photo, one is the high
resolution, it's the back up file, the RAW to process and print it on
magazines, newspapers. Other one is the JPG version in low resolution
which I need just to publish on the web. When the camera is connected
via PTP it doesn't save the files on its compact flash card, the
camera send the files via PTP, so I need booth files, RAW to process
later (after the photo session's end) and the JPG to publish as it was

What is better, write the files on the mobile local flash memory or in
the micro SD card? Every photo session I need at least 8Gb and I can
lose any photo.

I need that the phone write the RAW files and send the JPG at the same
time. Am I out of my mind and asking to much? LOL

Please guys, I'd appreciate if anyone could help or suggest another
way to do that: shoot and publish in a blink :)

Thank you for your time!

Big hug from a Brazilian friend,

Silvio Tanaka
