[android-developers] Digest for android-developers@googlegroups.com - 25 updates in 24 topics

Mobi <priotecsmobiware@gmail.com>: May 23 12:21AM -0700

I have not updated my Android app for quite a while. Now I would like to
use the Alpha Test to run some tests of the In-App Purchase features.
 
Problem is, that I do not see how I can install the Alpha version on my
device using the Play Store. I did the following:
 
- Created the APK in Android Studio 2.1
- Logged into the Google Play Developer Console
- Selected my app and switched to APK/Alpha-Test
- Uploaded the APK the the Alpha Test and *published it*
- It is a closed Alpha Test and I am the only tester. *The e-mail
address I entered in the tester list perfectly matches the address of the
Play Account I am using on the device.*
- Opened activation URL in Chrome on my Device. Play Store webpage is
shown, saying that *I am a tester*.
- Clicked the link to the Play Store and downloaded the current Version
of my app
- Checked if there is an update to the Alpha Version, *but there is not*
 
I uploaded/published the alpha APK *one week ago*. Even if it can take some
hours before an update reaches the store, one week should be long enough,
shouldn't it?
 
 
I found other threads dealing with this kind of problem and in some cases
the solution was to *clean the cache of the Play Store App and restart the
app*. However this did not change anything in my case.
 
So, none of the suggested solutions I found worked for me. Any other idea
what I can do?
 
 
I now switch from a *Closed Alpha Test* an Alpha Test using a *Google+
Community*. However, the result is the same:
 
- While logged in with my developer account, I switched to Google+ and
created a new Community.
- Invited my test user (one of my other accounts) to the group.
- Copied the URL of the Goole+ Community to the Aplha Testing section in
the Developer Console.
-

Published the changes.
-

When visiting the test URL (
https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.mycompany.myapp) I got the
message "*You are not a tester*"
- Checking the e-mails of my test account. Found the invitation to the
Google+ Community and joined.
- When visiting the test URL I could now click on *Become a tester* and
now I am tester.
- Downloaded the App from the Play Store using my test account. Just
received the public version.
- *No update to the Alpha version available...*
 
 
Also after switching to a *Public Alpha Test* still no update available.
 
Also after switching to a Public Beta Test still no update available...
 
*What else could I do? Any idea what I am doing wrong?*

Daniel Tudorascu <bogdan4tlom@gmail.com>: May 17 11:50AM -0700

I'm going to add chat functionality to my app. After long searches I came
to the conclusion that the best solution would be ejabberd/openfire + smack
4.1 for android, but I have some things that I can't wrap my ahead around.
I don't know if I'm supposed to post a question like this here. Just
comment if not and I'll delete it, but I don't know of any other place that
I can ask.
 
Now I have a facebook login and some fields that post data to a server and
that data is uploaded into mysql tables. I found multiple tutorials on how
to make the openfire connection, but once I achieve that am I supposed to
forget about my old implementation ? Is openfire just for instant
messaging, or does it behave like a server in which I can add tables, query
them, add data and etc. ?If so how? I mean in my current configuration I
have php which handles all of that, but I couldn't find anything in
openfire that would let me do such a thing.
 
When I configured openfire I saw that a lot of tables are created(ofuser,
etc.), and I don't know what any of those are for, but I assume that I'm
not supposed to mess with them.
 
Am I going to implement the auto-registration within the facebook
login(user= fb id and password = token)?
 
Am I going to use openfire just to handle sending the messages, but store
them on my current server in a table? It sounds that the phone would have
to deal with too much- send the message to my server(to store it) and then
to the openfire server?
 
I would also like to make an website for this app. Should I make it in such
a way that when the message is submitted into the php form(to store it)
somehow it's going to send it to the openfire to handle the downstream?
 
I've also looked to GCM, but I understood that I should only use that for
offline notifications.
 
How should I implement this?
 
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you

Friends BIG QUESTION!!!
 
There is one app on play store : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ambaitsystem.bcookbook
 
It has deployed one exciting feature Chit-Chat called TeaTalk.
 
Where Recipe Lovers can discuss about Recipe,Cooking,Restaurant Reviews & much more.
 
Any How people are not using this feature of this app except few.

Siddharth Raja <rajkotraja99@gmail.com>: May 25 07:21AM -0700

Google play team is not responding to my emails.
Where i can approach or appeal, i have all documents and proofs, still no
responses. Pls be transparent and do justice.
 
I hope someone will reply to this post.

Next time , maybe you can first create a public git repository in
github.com . then share the url and file in this platform.
Becasue showing only three file is not sufficient for us to check and debug
the application

Stop spamming on Android developer forums, it's not right place to post

I've been away from Android for a bit.
 
 
Maybe a year or so. I remember generally using Eclipse.
 
 
It seems like now we are generally using Android Studio.
 
 
Anyhow, I was wondering if there is an easy way to get the samples like
Lunar Lander going in Android Studio?
 
 
Anyone know what became of Lunar Lander and if there are any similar game
samples?
 
 
Thanks, and have a blessed day.

From the documentation, it seems like it is a fully functioning framework
now and can take advantage of both the CPU and GPU on a device. Is there
some kind of a proposal / design document that I could refer to see where
it's heading in the near future?
 
Thanks!

The biggest problem you can have running on 6.0 is expecting that your app has all the permissions it requests, whereas starting with 6.0 the user can revoke some of those permissions, even if you target an earlier version.
That is a great opportunity to ask yourself for every single permission you request: "Can I justify to the end-user which exact functionality is associated with this permission?"
As a smaller problem, 6.0 introduces more possible density values for supported-screens (360 and 420). If you use it anyway in spite of all the warnings, you probably know about it, and probably already know how to fix it.
As you work toward fixing those, you'll probably need to compile against the 6.0 SDK itself. In turn, that means that some deprecated APIs will disappear (Apache HTTP stack). If you can't refactor your code to use a more modern HTTP implementation, there's an official documented workaround (but I don't remember the URI off-hand).
