A little question about Modular Content

 is it possible for an application to use downloaded files on the SD
card or system memory? I'd like to develop a framework application
that can use files downloaded off the web as episodic content or
expandable modules.

also if it is possible, what file types are directly downloadable onto
the phone from the browser?

 Why wouldn't that work? If you develop your application so it uses
scripts and stuff like that, then that can be loaded from SD, if you
want to update your program code (the Java stuff) then you have to
update the application. Which isn't that big a problem, because Market
now supports it, afaik.

A little question about Modular Content

by chineseome...@gmail.com » Sun, 08 Mar 2009 23:44:33 GMT

 i was just concerned about the availability of file support.  ideally
i would like a container file such as a Zip to deliver the content in
a nice deliverable package, but i had read that the phones will not
download that type of file from the browser.

i have found no documentation about what files can and can't be
delivered via browser and/or USB and whether there are distinctions
between dev phone file options and standard phone.


also versioning of the application is not so much an issue, i would
like people to be able to only download and use the modules they would
like to, not update the entire application with a bloated compilation
of all the files

thank you for your reply

1. So can we use Directions API or not in Android?

I would love to be able to use the Directions API in my Android app,
but I'm confused by the information in the Directions API
documentation: http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/directions/
so the short form of my question is: can Android apps use the Google
Directions API?

It clearly states the intended audience includes mobile developers.
But it also states that you're limited to 2500 requests per day. Does
this mean my app, if deployed to thousands of devices, is in total
restricted to 2500 requests per day? How could the Google server tell
anyway? Based on IP address? In which case I may be okay. The docs
also say no API key is required so again it would seem the Google
servers have nothing to use to accumulate a counter of requests per
day. Still, I don't want to be in violation of any Google Terms of

So is it okay or not? Thanks in advance.

2. Odd size Dell Aero screen: 360x640 px

Dell's first US released smart phone was released today. It has this
odd sized screen of 360x640px. I really wonder what that's going to
look like with the average app?

On the plus side, it's light and inexpensive ($300 without contract).

On the negative side it's on AT&T, has a miniscule battery (1000 mAh),
slow processor (624 MHz) and runs Cupcake (1.5) of all things.

Maybe Dell can do better next time.
