Hello Community,

See review here:
:rarrow: :rarrow: :rarrow: REVIEW :larrow: :larrow: :larrow:


This video is not a review. It shows a anddev.org-member trying to install an application that seems to be incompatible to the android-version running on the G1.


expect a extensive review on the G1 :!:
Hi Nicolas,

As I have described previously, we have added you to our request list for the T-Mobile G1. Please note that this means you will be taken into consideration for a review device when they become available. I appreciate your follow up emails but please know that we will contact you immediately should a device become available.

Thanks,

XXXXX XXXX

@plusminus

The application is shown as unsuccessful. What does it mean? You cannot install? Could you fix this?

I was expecting (naively?) that installation on Android would be a doodle... What do you think?

Cheers

It shows a anddev.org-member trying to install an application that seems to be incompatible to the android-version running on the G1. Or maybe I mixed sth up :?

I'm sorry, I should not have shown this without a notice.

Ah, it is in fact written in your original post. I had not read... :roll: sorry!

I was asking this because I started thinking about installation issues. Is there a place that describe those in details, either in one of these forum or on the world wild web somewhere?

I would like to know what to expect, is it going to be easy, supported, etc. I understand the first thing is to get the application signed, but is there anything else that has to be done before an app can be uploaded?

How is the app moved from the PC over to the hand held device? The video shows some web site. May be someone knows of a good tutorial somewhere.

Many thanks in advance.

Unfortunately there is no information about that. :shock:
Thats definitely not how it should be. Imagine developers throwing their apps to the AndroidMarket without having tested that once on an actual device :o

As you have seen, apps can be installed directly from the web (just klick a link to an apk), but the system will warn you when you want to do so.

Hi plusminus,

Do you know if zzzPhone.com is any good ? Should it work in Canada (for ex.?)

Keep up the good work

So how does Android deal with different versions?

E.g. I got a binary that has been built with an older Android SDK but there is running a newer version on the device ...

As long as the api isn't changed, it'll work, I guess. At least that's what I believe the imports are for :D.

Yes.

Afaik, if you build an app with SDK 1.0 it should run on future SDKs.

Then I should insert a "should" in my sentence too :). I don't really know how the backward compatibility works, but I suspect it to be dependent on the signatures of the classnames and methodnames. So I believe normally it should always be backward compatible, unless some code fix changes a function's task, or a method receives another signature.

Btw: You should have received a PM too :P
