I'm a well known proponent of Windows technology, but I am seriously impressed by Android machines (particulary those running Honeycomb). I'm so impressed that I would actually like to get into Android development. So, with that in mind, I'd like to ask for recommendations for books on Android (Honeycomb) development.
Also take a look at html5 it seems very cool there is a framework for it with
very nice demos here, I
don't know if it will work in an offline mode of operation but it's very
I'm comfortable doing HTML 5 development. What I was looking for is native Android development, and while using MonoDroid would be easy enough for me, I'd like to gain experience with the standard Android SDK. That's no reflection on the Mono team, purely that I'd like to learn this stuff for myself.
I want to create a simple application for my club,which will enable users search details of other members on their BB , Android phone or any java enabled phone. Is it better to embed the database in the app or have it hosted elsewhere ? I'd prefer embedded in case phone not configured for internet access , but what are the practical considerations, including in the development and use ?
The problem with embedded only is how does the database update? New members etc. You could use an embedded database and provide access to a server to update when online. My phone doesn't have 3G but there are plenty of Wi-Fi connections I use, so I'm regularly connected. After all they need to be connected or sync'd at some stage to install the app.
I need some help about a j2me project that will do send a character from a phone to another bluetooth device. I've tried to understand java but i am mechatronic engineer student so couldn't handle with it.
if you have a project ready, can you share it or if anyone know java well, can write a code.
by the way i am trying to control a toy car with my phone. i am gonna use accelerator sensors too but it is laters work. for now i need to communicate only one character. for example when i press button "2" it will send "a" character etc..
If you could help me I would really appreciate it.
Hi! We have a Windows Mobile 6.5 based project which uses a Bluetooth serial port any windows phone (We use HTC HD2) to communicate with several industrial transmitters. Now we have been asked to port this WM 6.5 application to WP7, iPhone and Android phones/tablets. I searched this forums and many others but it seems to me neither Microsoft(WP7) nor Apple (iPhone) do not support the Serial Port Profile. (Why???) I am not quite sure about Android. Does anybody of you have any experience about porting System.IO.Ports.SerialPort control to IPhone, WP7 or Android? Thanks guys!
Of course a USB to Serial dongle might be acceptable but I do not think any dongle vendor would have driver for iPhone nor for WP7 phones...
Some plants allow you to take you mobile phone or PDA to a intrinsically safe locations. So this is why we use Bluetooth connection. A wired USB or USB to Serial adapter might cause sparks, which are deadly weapons there...
So it looks like Microsoft and Apple sent a message to us regarding the serial ports: Welcome back to 1981!
If you can't do it with Android (and you probably can), then I guess it's one step back to J2ME. Nokia and Motorola both make J2ME-capable touch screen and regular-keyboard devices that I have used. There are suitable products from other manufacturers as well. Depends what's still on sale in your part of the world.
