 I'm anticipating that the server-component of the market app has been
upgraded in preparation for changes in the Android app which will get pushed
out with 1.5. I'm waiting to see if there are any changes there before
coming to a judgement.

Has there been a change in market date listing?

 I usually update my app weekly (when I have pending bug fixes) or
bi-weekly. When I get bug reports within hours after the update I usually
fix the bugs and release a new version right away.
So that the people that haven't upgraded yet get the fixed version right
away and only the early people have to suffer through another update.
After ca. 24 hours I will not release new version until a bug is really
serious. I want to prevent people getting annoyed by updates.
This approach seems to work great with the changed Android Market approach.
I release a new version last Sunday and was listed as an updated app. Three
hours later I released another version with a bug fix and was not listed at
the top of the changed apps again.
So there seems to be a time window in which another update doesn't count
again as a reason to get to the top of the list.

Of course, it's the Android Market, so there is no hard information on
anything and we have to speculate how long this window for updates is.

1. How to call Activity from a class derived from Dialog super class

Yes you can, but you need to have a Context object and you should set the
"FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK" option... But you should read up on that flag
because it may not behave as you would expect.

2. Deleting Contact leaves (Unknown) entry in Contacts app

Hi all,

I'm having a problem trying to delete a contact from my Android device.
 When I delete the contact by using the following code:

    ArrayList<ContentProviderOperation> ops =


                         .withSelection(ContactsContract.Data.CONTACT_ID +

                           new String[]{id})


 try {

 mApp.getContentResolver().applyBatch(ContactsContract.AUTHORITY, ops);

 } catch (RemoteException e) {

 Log.e(LOG_TAG, e.getMessage(), e);

 } catch (OperationApplicationException e) {

 Log.e(LOG_TAG, e.getMessage(), e);



        int result = mApp.getContentResolver().delete(ContactsContract.Data.

     ContactsContract.Data.CONTACT_ID + " = ?",

     new String[] {id});

The contact seems to be replaced by one called "(Unknown)".  Does anyone
know why this is the case and if there is anything I can do so that the
contact is deleted cleanly and I don't seen "(Unknown)" in the contact app
