 I'd like to get a list of my applications that have the auto update flag 
enabled.  After searching the APIs and lots of googling, i can't seem to 
find an API that would allow me to test if an Application has this set or 
not.  Does anyone know how to check for this behaviour?

This appears to be a feature of the Android Market, not the OS itself, so
there's likely no API to query this state.

You can use broadcast Intents for this (e.g., sendBroadcast()) or remote
services and AIDL.

Here are two projects employing the latter technique:

2. Multiple - multiple choice dialogs/activities, questionnaire, one question at the time

Hi there,

I am new at developing for android, so bear with me (and my ignorance).

I have tried to make a series of dialogs, like a questionnaire, that the
user needs to answers a series of questions selecting one or more
checkboxes. I can do one, just fine, but when I try to make more than one
question (lets say 10), it does not show, or show all the dialogs. I tried
using dialogs or new acitivities.

So, my problem is I have multiple questions, one to be presented each time,
and I need to wait for one to be responded so I can ask the next one. How do
I accomplish this?

My first attempt was with a dialog box... but obviously it got all the boxes
stacked in each other:

 for (int i = 0; i < questions.size(); i++) {

final int counter = i;
 int size = questions.size();
CharSequence[] itemsBuilder = new CharSequence[size];
 boolean[] bitemsBuilder = new boolean[size];

for (int j = 0; j < questions(i).getPossibleAnswers().size(); j++) {
 itemsBuilder[j] = quastions(i).getPossibleAnswers().get(j);
bitemsBuilder[j] = false;

final CharSequence[] items = itemsBuilder;
final boolean[] bitems = bitemsBuilder;
 AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
builder.setTitle("Choose the answer for "
 + question.get(i).getQuestion();
builder.setMultiChoiceItems(items, bitems,
 new DialogInterface.OnMultiChoiceClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int item,
 boolean choice) {
Log.d("choice", "" + item + " " + choice);
items[item], Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
 new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {

AlertDialog alert = builder.create();
