1501  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: April 05, 2011, 05:29:01 AM
Trying out v1.0.6 build 1 (Unicode build) here and noticed that sometimes after waking from hibernation I see the following sort of thing in the notification area (is that an appropriate term?):

[attachthumb=1]

When I double-click on the right-hand icon, I typically see a window like:

[attachthumb=2]

Is this to be expected?

When trying to reproduce the situation, I think I had more luck if I waited a while before waking the PC from hibernation.

Thanks for your ongoing efforts  Thmbsup

If you want a warning beforehand: install Stylish ...

Or Link Alert
Nice!  I think I'll try Link Alert first (only one thing to install here).

Thank you both  Thmbsup

Sounds like a nice idea.

I didn't figure out whether either suggested program could remind one periodically.

In Firefox 4

Tools > Options > Applications > Application/pdf  I set to "always ask"
FWIW, that's the setting I found when I took a look just now.  May be it's the default if you don't have any PDF software "installed"...I tend to use SumatraPDF portably.

Until finding QuickDroid I'd been using the
I think I'm going to have to read the manual, I just found if I hold my finger on the Home button I get a list of recently used apps.
I haven't figured out yet whether my frequency of use of the long-press-of-home-button functionality will change as a result of using QuickDroid,

If the device I use had a hard key for the home button I think I'd find using the functionality in question to be more attractive.
1507  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: April 01, 2011, 08:45:01 PM
Although perhaps not as nice as FARR, I've been using QuickDroid the past few days and am finding it convenient when switching among recently used apps and sometimes for bringing up things which are easy to 'name'.
1508  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: April 01, 2011, 07:28:27 AM
Screen capture for rooted androids...

Try "Shootme"
Thanks for the suggestion.

Unfortunately, I didn't have any luck tracking down a reputable non-market source for this.

Also looked for drocap2 for root users, Screen Capture Shortcut Free and PicMe with similar results.

I guess via patience and appropriate future devices this sort of thing won't be necessary.
1509  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: March 31, 2011, 05:09:27 AM
I'm afraid I can't help with any of these questions. To be honest, I'm not listening to music on the device very often.
Thanks for responding any way smiley

RealCalc (free/donation): A calculator that does it all, including conversions.
Ahhh, the SHIFT key and then the 0 key for conversions.  Nice.

Wifi Analyzer (free): Essential for locating and evalutaing hotspots.
I like the graphical depiction used - nicer than the one in Tricorder Wink

  • Aldiko (free): Excellent ePub and pdf reader. I have several others of each, but find I now use this one almost exclusively.
Didn't know that recent versions supported PDF.  Hmm, no non-multi-touch zoom at the moment it seems:

AdFree
I had avoided rooting until I read about this incident...I didn't succeed in determining whether my device had any relevant updates and this led to rooting the phone and creating an empty /system/bin/profile file.  I don't suppose there's a list of mobile device sellers who are known to be good at providing security updates...

As a side benefit I get to try things like AdFree smiley

Thanks for mentioning it!

Now if I could find some screen capturing app I could download...

Audiobooks - Quick access to LibriVox's entire catalog.
Nice!  I was able to try it out (I assume it's the same thing) via Android Freeware.
1513  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: March 31, 2011, 04:30:58 AM
3 (Cubed) - Cool music player with widget (but lacks EQ)
Trying this out now - do you happen to know if it's possible to display the time elapsed so far of the current track?

Also, is there "sleep timer" functionality?  I have SleepTimer, but it seems more convenient for this functionality to be built-in to the audio player.

On a related note, I'm also trying MortPlayer Music - have you tried that out?
1514  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: March 31, 2011, 04:15:11 AM
What's your reason for not using the market?
Originally it was because I didn't know how to use it without a Google account -- and it didn't sit well with me to have to make an account which might be associated with a device like a mobile phone AND applications.  Another way to put it might be that I feel pretty uncomfortable from the perspective of privacy.

File Expert - Excellent file manager plus one touch HTTP/FTP server for managing via PC.
Didn't know about the one touch HTTP/FTP server -- handy!

Thanks for pointing that out smiley
1516  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: March 29, 2011, 09:30:06 PM
Eager to try out some of these apps, but not being a Market user, I was happy to find Android Freeware as it appears to provide a fair number of .apk files for download.

Prior to using this site, I'd been using SlideME and AndAppStore -- neither seemed to have RealCalc or ASTRO File Manager but Android Freeware did smiley

Some fun text in the description for "Change Search Shortcut":

Allows to change the search shortcut. After the comedy with Panorama taking over CTRL+E, then switching to CTRL+SHIFT+E, without restoring CTRL+E, I've decided to make this very simple plug-in to allow people to choose their own shortcut.

Nice  Thmbsup

I lightly tested Ctrl-Clicking and Shift-Clicking with success smiley

Hi lanux128 smiley

Thanks for both tips  Thmbsup

I hadn't heard of the "restartless add-ons".  Looking forward to more add-ons going in that direction!
1520  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Firefox 4 (4.0) and QuickRestart Add-On Alternative (Restartless Restart) on: March 27, 2011, 06:04:12 PM
Had been using the QuickRestart Firefox add-on:

  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/quickrestart/

but it doesn't seem to be working currently for Firefox 4.0.

Just installed and tested (at least it worked once...) an alternative add-on Restartless Restart:

  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/restartless-restart/

Copy-pasted description:

Quote
This very tiny (7KB) add-on will add a "Restart" menu item to the "File" menu, and a ctrl/cmd + alt + r hotkey to Firefox or Seamonkey which will restart the program. It can also be installed/uninstalled/enabled/disabled all without requiring a restart, hence the name "Restartless Restart".

Restartless Restart is similar to the QuickRestart add-on except it doesn't work on FF < 4, it does work on FF 4, it's restartless, it's 7KB instead of 34KB, it works for Seamonkey, it doesn't have a toolbar button, and it's not localized.

Just installed the following one here:

Call Confirm (asks if you really want to call someone)

Looks like it may help reduce the number of accidental callls  embarassed

Thanks!

Thanks for sharing this bit about epub and JS.
1523  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SIGIL, free ePub editor on: March 25, 2011, 11:49:18 PM
Thanks for posting about Sigil.  I've been trying it out and though it seems a bit rough around the edges, it seems to be coming along ok. 

(Just wish there were a way to provide feedback to the developer without having to "sign in" to Google -- may be there is a way and I haven't found it...)

  Indeed it has, sir smiley

phitsc:
  I was surprised too.  After some pondering it occurred to me that perhaps a project the size of Firefox has just too many details to attend to with the kind of care one might otherwise want...
1525  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use? on: March 24, 2011, 06:39:50 PM
Thanks for the contributions and welcomes smiley

Perhaps I'll add links to relevant AppBrain pages in the original post -- thanks Deozaan!
