ListView containing multiple, clickable, Views (i.e. like GMail)

 Replying to my own question.

It appears that I screwed-up when registering the Button's listener,
which presumably resulted in the unresponsive state observed.


ListView containing multiple, clickable, Views (i.e. like GMail)

by Chris Stewart » Wed, 11 Aug 2010 03:52:12 GMT

 I'm working on something similar where I want to interact with just
the rows I've selected, like the GMail app allows you to do.  However,
I'm struggling to find a way to get the rows I've chosen when I click
a button that's outside the context of my ListView.  If you'll notice
on the GMail app, when you select an item (the button to the left of
the subject), a set of buttons display at the bottom of the screen.
How did you get the selected data on that button click?

1. SERIOUS problem w/ uninstalled apps and update notifications

I think it's less that they'd get too many messages and more of the simple
fact that they don't HAVE TO provide any form of support. A cable or phone
company relies on your subscription to make money. If they don't support
their product, you would get pissed and move on to another company that did,
and they would go out of business.

Google on the other hand gives everything away for free anyway and won't be
adversely affected by unhappy customers - the number of people happily using
Google search, Gmail, Calendar, etc far outweigh those of us unhappy with
the state of Android - so there's no pressing need to provide any support
for anything.

Of course, we did all pay $25 to register as developers, so you'd think that
would warrant some level of support for the "good" we purchased. But what do
I know?

2. Users marking down free apps because missing paid app features

I think this is a matter of expectation. If you start off with one free app
and have that out for a while, people expect that that's the way it's going
to be. Now you throw out a paid version and say "OK, no more updates for the
free version, you have to cough up some cash now to get more features",
people will get pissed.

Similarly if you have an app that's been ad-free and randomly throw in some
ads - people will revolt because the expectation had been set that the app
was ad-free.

I don't know if it's limited to Android, but based on reading comments of
some of the apps I have, it seems like people overwhelmingly feel entitled
to ad-free, feature-rich, perfect free apps. So you have to kill this
expectation from the beginning.

In my case, I've had a free, ad-supported version and a paid version with
more features from the beginning. The description clearly reads "limited /
basic" and in the app it lets you know something is limited when you try to
use it. So the expectation was set up front that that's the way it worked so
people have nothing to complain about. I've had maybe one comment along the
lines of "I think X feature should be free" but that's about it. While on
the other end I've had one comment saying "good balance between free and
paid features".

At the end of the day, don't worry about the rating so much. People are
fickle and will down-rate you because it's too cloudy outside that day. Keep
improving both versions of your app (with some limitations in the free one)
and eventually they'll get used to it and get over it.

What a douche.

A free version will always be rated less than a paid version IMO. Obviously
there will be many more people using the free version (because it's free)
and again being fickle and self-entitled, will rate down anything that's
short of perfection. And those that are using the paid version are generally
people that are happy with the product and / or want to support the
developer, so they'll rate it higher. It is what it is.
