Copy protected app issue

 I chose copy protection for my application on the android market.
There are some users complain they were not able to download the
software from the market and gave me only one star. I am wondering if
they are Dev phone users. If yes, could Google ban them even before
they start download? One user said he tried 10 times...

Another issue is, it seems the "rooted" G1 phone can download even
copy protected app. And the worse thing is the app apk file can be
published to anywhere and anyone can download it for free.

I am wondering if Google can do this: the Android Market can sign the
app with the device hardware id, so the app can only run on this
particular device. I have done this for Windows Mobile phone before
(Encrypt a seperate license file instead of sign the app).

1. How to select multi phone number from phone book?

Hello all, I want to write something to sms to several people. I want to
select the phone numbers from the system phone book activity.

   1. Uri uri = Uri.parse("content://contacts/people");
      2. Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK, uri);
      3. startActivityForResult(intent, PICK_CONTACT_SUBACTIVITY);

However, I can't select only one number at a time. I wonder how to select
multi phone numbers like we can do in 'compose new message'.


Best wishes,

2. Moving to the next ImageView in HorizontalScrollview?


I have a horizontal scroll view and there are four images in it. Now
what I want is the way to detect which image is focused currently. I
mean, is there any way that we can distinguish between the image that
is focused and other images. Currently all the images look quite

One more thing, how to move only to the next image on every swipe or

Moreover, I have tried the same thing with Gallery, but I didn't found
anything in the Gallery that let me move to the next view only. In
Gallery, I have tried overriding the onfling method with hardcoded
value for veloctiyX but with no success. Can someone let me know how
to do this?

Doing the same thing with either Gallery view or HorizontalScrollview
will solve my issue.

Hope to get the quick response.
