BatteryService, from Android programming books, but is there a
published list of all available services?  thanks

 That's a good point.  In addition to what I mentioned, I guess I'm
really interested in ALL the API's, regardless of how they are
implemented.  Are all API's documented in one place?

But I suspect you've already been there, so I think I don't understand
what you're asking.

 Yeah, that questions too vague.  The link helped, though.

1. Determining if an Activity is visible

Hi all!

A quick question - is there a way to determine if an activity is
visible to the user or not? I'd like to display a notification to the
user but only then when the user is not seeing any of my Activities.

I figure that one possibility is to raise a flag in onResume() and
lower it in onPause() but it's not the best solution for me (since the
app has  way too much Activities in total and implementing this in
every one of them "manually" seems like a silly thing to do)



2. Where is time stamp info kept for sms and recent calls


When using the Androdi SDK emulator, I saw that when you make calls
and sms messages the Android phone keeps a record of when these were
For example there is a list of all the recent calls which includes
times and dates.

But when I look at the database of the Android platform i cannot see
the time stamp information stored any where
Instead I see the date value as "0" and not a Unix time stamp as

This seems to be the same for the sms database, no time stamp
informatio is saved in the date column, instead there is a "0" value.

Does anyone know where the time stamp information is kept for the
recent calls list and the sms inbox/sent items is kept please?
I do not understand why the time stamp value is "0" and the emulator
still has an accurate record of when the calls/messages were sent/

Kind Regards
