I am trying to develop an application which needs to perform the following

 [1] Fetch and store data from database.

 [2]calculate my location through GPS.

 [3]Do some calculations based on the (1) and (2) data.

 [4] Draw the data from (3) on camera preview.

The main requirement is whenever my location is updated/changed the above
mentioned tasks should be performed again.

right now i am using services for the first three tasks and in the main
activity i am drawing the data over camera preview. But this does not seem
to work so i am confused if i am implementing it right or does my
application require re-structuring. Please suggest some alternatives or

Elaborating on "does not seem to work" would be helpful if you want help.

You've provided such a high-level description of a couple of very broad
topics with very little details that it's pretty much impossible to tell you
anything useful.

2. Get next Alarm

Hi there,

Both as an exercise and because I've not yet found a simple app that
does this already, I'm trying to develop a widget that displays the
next alarm set by the standard Alarm Clock application.

I've found that you can get an already formatted String of this time


but I have a few problems with this:

1. The String it returns is already formatted, but in a way I don't
want. So, I'd have to do some rather {*filter*} String splits and
manipulations to reformat it how I want. Ideally I'd like to get this
time in millis/seconds since epoch, or as a Date object.

2. I've read that this value is easily overwritten by any app for any
purpose - if this is the case, it's not exactly reliable.

3. It's stopped working for me! (It's now returning a blank (not null)
String, despite there being alarms set). I guess if nothing better is
available to get this information, this will become a debugging
assistance discussion :-).

Is there a better, more reliable way to get the date/time of the next
Alarm set?
