 Dear Sir or Madam,

in the following I am refering to 

When will the "Current Distribution" section of the "Platform
page be updated?

The end of the most recent 14-days data collection period must have
ended on 16th of May 2011.

Yours faithfully

1. Access telephony database table from content provider


I want to access the addr table from the mmssms.db database in the /
data/data/ directory on
Android emulator/phone. This table contains the phone numbers of SMS/
MMS conversations.

However I have not been able to figure out the correct URI for this
table. I have tried content://sms/addr, content://mms-sms/addr, content://addr
and other combinations. However I have not been able to access this
particular table. Any idea which Uri I should be using for this?

Below is my code:

Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(Uri.parse("content://mms-
                null, null, null, null);

I am able to see the addr table in adb shell when I give this command
in /data/data/ by giving the

#sqlite3 mmssms.db
sqlite>select * from addr



2. iPhone to Android: Creating "good" Android Interfaces

Hey everybody,

I'm porting an iPhone app to Android and I'm having trouble designing
an interface that looks and feels "Android." I've read all of the
design documents in the Android Dev Guide and looked through all the
Google-designed apps, but I feel like the layout of activities is
largely undefined. Are there any resources that could help me
transition my iPhone design to the Android platform?

Here's a quick example of one of my issues. On the iPhone, every view
that presents user generated content gives the user a "+" button in
the upper right hand corner of the screen to add an item. It's
consistent across the built in apps, and it's *mostly* standard among
third-party apps.

I don't know what to do with the "+" button on Android. The guidelines
say important actions should be present on the screen and not hidden
within a menu, so let's say I put it on the screen. It shouldn't go at
the bottom of a long list of items, because the user shouldn't have to
scroll down every time they want to create a new item. That leaves me
with a static button. But there are no standard toolbars, so I'm going
to design my own iPhone-esque bar at the top of the screen with a "+"

I know this probably sounds like a rant, and I'm sorry. I feel it
would be worthwhile for someone to sit down and document how common
iPhone UI practices should be transitioned to Android apps. I care a
lot about UI design - I think it's one of the most important factors
in app development -- and I'd hate to see every transitioning
developer approach this differently.

At any rate, does anyone know of existing resources that might help me
out? What's the best designed app you've used for Android? A few
examples of great "Android" interfaces would go a long way.
