 Hi guys,

Is there a way for an application to request a larger than normal
maximum heap size? I have an application which needs around 100mb RAM
(and this is with lots of tricks to decrease memory usage).

Newer phones with 500mb+ should have no problem coping with this. Any
advice is very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Tomasz

 I have found some references to a manifest file attribute,
android:largeheap="true"
However if I try and use this I get the following error on
compilation:
error: No resource identifier found for attribute 'largeheap' in
package 'android'

android:largeHeap="true" is mentioned here;
 http://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/ActivityManager.html #getLargeMemoryClass%28%29

It's API level 11 method, could it be so that this attribute is too?

1. Sending Packets via UDP over a WIFI connection

Hi All,

I am trying to send UDP packets over a WIFI connection from my phone
to a Server on my pc. Here is the code that I have on my client:

 String data = "Testing";
 byte [] buffer = data.getBytes();

 DatagramPacket packet = new DatagramPacket(buffer, buffer.length,
                new InetSocketAddress(ipaddress, port));

 DatagramSocket socket = new DatagramSocket(5003);
 socket.send(packet);

I have tried this code in a Java app sending from my laptop to my
desktop and it works fine. I am assuming its because I am not setting
up the WIFI connection properly that it is not working on my phone.
Any ideas?

2. Need a Nexus One tester with logcat

Hello,

I am trying to figure out why my app forces close immediately on a
nexus one (recurring comment which is dragging my rating down).

Ironically, I heard a rumor that if I had just a half star more (up to
3.5 from 3), I would qualify to get a free nexus one from google.

If anybody has a nexus one and can connect it up to get the logcat
dump of the stack trace of the error, I would be very thankful.

You can find my app by searching for "Compass Ball" on the market.

Thanks in advance,
Geoff
