schedulesync

We all remember the good old Activesync for Windows Mobile. A simple and very effective sync program to keep your device, data, and files synced with your computer. Nowadays, things have evolved a bit as most syncing of our important data is done via web, particularly for Android devices. This new sync app, XDA member kovalevfm will allow you to sync files and folders by using Dropbox as your storage. You can utilize your Dropbox account to sync between multiple devices and best of all, it will do all the syncing by itself. The app has a built in scheduler, which is fully configurable and will allow you to set the time at which you would like to sync your files. This is particularly useful for people with slow mobile connections as syncing files in the MB range can take a while and will have a huge drain on battery. Just think about it, if you know that you are going to be home everyday after 7 pm, you can set your app to sync at that time as you will be able to use your wifi connection at home (if you have one). For now, the app will only allow you to upload things into Dropbox, but the dev promises that later releases will have the ability to pull stuf from the online service as well.

Please leave some feedback if you liked this app.

We wrote an app that syncs any files or folders with the help of dropbox according to the schedule.
Now it can only upload files/folders from phone. But it will be able to download from dropbox also soon.

You can find more information in the application thread.

Hi

UPDATE 17-OCT-2010
Fixed some small FC issue reported by a friend

UPDATE 16-OCT-2010
Alright a new version, with gradient color fill, less complicated code, and new icon
Desire
yesterday i wanted to get a battery status bar for my desire just like the picture below

found a thread here that explain how to get it

Super Circle Battery with % |Version A-I & Z (Custom)| Desire 2.2 ROM

Problem
However i found out that i am un-able to use it because the requirments for installing (what i have been told in the thread) is that your device has to be

1. Rooted
2. Have different ROM than the stock ROM

personally i find it very inconvenient to root & flash a new ROM just to get this battery circular percentage (thats all i want, I am pretty satisfied with the stock FROYO 2.2)

Dimunition Icons Set for Android

September 21, 2010   By:

snap20100710_005208

Who does not like a new set of fresh icons? This time, XDA member newone757 presents Dimunition Icon set for your Android device. All icons are showed in black in the gallery, so you may have a hard time to make them look right on the first configuration, but after that they should look just like in the thumbnail.
This is the first icon set contribution from the developer, so please leave feed back.

Uploading an old set I made but never shared.

Enjoy

Only problem is they show up all black in the gallery. So whatever you use to replace icons (folder organizer, bettercut, etc) you have to use andexplorer or astro to browse by filename and select your icon…

You can find m0re information in the icons thread.

SnapSwap for Android

September 14, 2010   By:

snap20100531_213807

XDA member Ciela presents SnapSwap for Android devices. This application will let you take a photo and send it to a random person, and you will in return receive a random photo back.
This first version just left the beta stage and some members stated that it runs stable, altough some minor bugs are still present, such as not being able to delete the pictures as it creates 2 duplicate imges, which have to be deleted manually. The developer included the apk file so you can download it and install it.
Don´t worry if application starts with a blank screen as there is no default image yet, just press the menu key to begin.

[APP] SnapSwap – Android Photoswap clone

Hi all

Im new here so I hope this is posted right. Ive developed an Android app that is similar to the iPhone Photoswap app. For those not aware, Photoswap lets you take a photo and send it to a random person, and you will in return receive a random photo back. You can then take part in picture-conversations with the person who you received a photo from.

Ive had a couple people testing my app and it seems to just about ready (apart from using the default app icon), and I’d like to put it out there for others to start using (and hopefully provide some feedback on ) Im new to android development (although not new to programming itself), and this is my first android app. IMHO it works better than the similar Picswap app that exists already, as this doesnt force-close constantly or throw-out error messages regarding “corrupt” images

I have attached the APK with my post for anyone who wishes to download and install it

There is a known issue with the app at the moment that it does not (at least on HTC devices) delete any photos that you have taken, and they still appear in your Photos app. From what Ive found, using the camera Intent saves 2 copies of the photo to the SD card, and Ive only found one path from the URI to delete (so 1 copy is deleted, but the other remains). These can be deleted from the Photos app still however, but Im looking into how to delete these automatically from the app also.

Edit: The app also starts with a blank screen (no default image yet), just press the menu key to begin

Another Cool Anti Apple BootScreen

July 30, 2010   By:

boot2

In this day and age, having a cheerful startup to your awesome device is very important, and to some, it reflects their views. Well, this one spells your views to others. Created by XDA member CyberWalrus, this bootscreen tries to make your device’s startup look, call, and tells your friends “EAT THIS APPLE”. Now, this startup screen is not the best anti Apple boot screen I have seen, but I think it’s just right. Perfect balance with a little hate, animation, and flashy.

Thanks a lot to phaelox, who made the zip attached for you to flash, without him, this bootscreen wouldnt work!
I made this bootscreen because I felt that villainROM is so good it seserves its own bootscreen, and I im kina sick of the nexus one boot
Hope everyone likes it, If you want a version with a custom tagline, or have any ideas for a bootscreen that you would like to see, just ask and I will get back to you.
This bootscreen took quite a while to make (photoshop + gifs = frustration)
and was more fiddly than I though it would be, So all thanks are MUCH appreciated

Show your dislike but keep the looks with this boot animation.

Boot Animation Preview Updated

July 12, 2010   By:

bapscreen

Having an awesome boot screen on Android devices is becoming a very hard task with all these available packages, but this Windows application is here to help. Made by XDA member camalot, this application sets out to give you access to your boot files, allowing you to see the animation. This way, you’ll know what looks the coolest before you load it all up.

This is a tool for windows that will allow you to preview a boot animation (bootanimation.zip) file before applying it to your device. If you have the SDK in your environment path, it will also allow you to apply the boot animation to the device. I have tested about 50 boot animations and only had 2 that wouldn’t load, and they didn’t load because there was an invalid line in the desc.txt file.
Requirements

  • .NET Framework 4.0
  • Windows XP or later
  • Android SDK added to Environment path (to set the boot animation on the device, if you don’t have it in the path, you just cant set it from the app)
  • Boot Animation files to open (you can pull one off your device @ /system/media/bootanimation.zip)

You can download this preview tool in the application thread.

If you’ve been impressed with the recent augmented reality apps for Android but have not found much use for them, you might want to take a look at Wikitude Drive.

Posted by XDA forum member djbrutale, Wikitude Drive is the first navigation system based on augmented reality for your Android device!

Developed by Mobilizy Research & Development group in Salzburg, Wikitude Drive is a light weight navigational system and works by overlaying point to point directions on a camera-view – without the need for maps.  The app also provides the option to toggle to a traditional 3D map view by pressing the screen.

Currently only available in the US, and supporting the metric system, Wikitude Drive was available for download in the Market for beta testing but the download limit has now been reached.

A few XDA members appear to have been lucky enough to participate in the beta testing, so to join the discussion and keep up to date with progress, visit the forum thread.
