Any idea why the following code crashes the app? It happens in calculateGmt()

 First thing I noticed right off the bat is that you aren't checking for the
case where the input can't be parsed to a double...  That throws an
exception and since you aren't handling that that would crash your app.

Second thing I noticed is that hideous @SuppressWarnings thing....  In my
opinion if you need to do that then you need to rethink what you are doing.

Last, but not least, check the logcat output when you get a crash... it will
tell you more about why it is crashing.

 I'm not seeing enough info for me to run this myself under Eclipse
DDMS and see the exception -- which is probably your best bet for
diagnosing the problem. Or, if it crashes before it waits for user
input, you should use Debug: 1) set a breakpoint by double-clicking on
the bar to the left of the line number in the Java source code editor
2) instead of doing Run As (or ctl-F11 or the corresponding tool),
launch the debugger by clicking on the tool that looks like a bug or
by doing F11 instead of ctl-F11. You can always switch back to DDMS
perspective in Eclipse after that and look in the Logcat output for
the exception.

Or, as either an alternative, or in addition to the above, you might
want to break up complicated lines like

"double val = Double.parseDouble(gmtinput.getText().toString());"

into multiple assignment statements. That will reveal where, for
example, you forgot to actually allocate memory for the result.

 ll good points!

In particular, the OP should have told us what the warning suppressed
really was. It might have been the hint he needed to solve the
problem. Or it might have been just another attempt to suppress the
spurious warning messages from Eclipse -- which sometimes says you
need to Override a method you have already Overriden.

And just to connect a few dots: the easiest way to get to Logcat and
search the output is to switch to DDMS perspective, find the Logcat
tab, bring it to the front and maximize it. Then you can delete the
previous contents of the log and just watch the world scroll by. Or
play around with filters, though that is not necessary for this
problem.

It also helps to watch this Logcat output on a known good program run,
so that you can get used to which error message can be ignored.
Unfortunately, even for a program running perfectly OK on the
emulator, we see Java exceptions and other error messages in Logcat.

1. PendingIntent question

i create PendingIntent and notification from a service.

                PendingIntent contentIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity( 
context, 0,
notificationIntent, PendingIntent.FLAG_CANCEL_CURRENT );

it creates a notification, user taps on the notification and then
the activity gets called...

works fine.

what i'd like to do is to call the activity immediately from the
background service and then have the notification act as more
of a message to user that the activity was called.

2. 2 Activities in MAIN LAUNCHER but...

Hi, I created an application with 2 Activities as set in the Manifest
MAIN and LAUNCHER because I want to have 2 separate icons that launch
the Activity in the menu of applications.

It happens to me that when I download the program from the market and
it's installed, when I click on the notification icon it ask me what
program to associate with my application, why?

How do I set the default Activity from the notification to start
installation?

If you want test it is SysInfo Widget.

Thanks to all
Bye
