    Yes. My old LG Voyager had the capability to record phone calls, but only the person who was talking to me, it wouldn't record my voice. If you could make an app that could do this, I would appreciate it a lot. to be honest, i'd pay money for it in the market if i knew for a fact that it worked.


    There are apps that claim to record phone calls, but none of them truly work as advertised. most of them use the microphone to try and hear what the earpiece is saying, and some of them don't even work at all .

    I'll +1 this. LOL

    There is an app called Sign and the free one is sign lite. This app allows you to press a button and use a sign (that you set) to call contacts. This needs to be taken to the next step. It should take two signs that the owner sets. The first sign picks what it's doing. Say sign C for call, then a sign for who to call. Then say sign an A or ^ for app, then a sign for what app to launch. Then sign an S for settings, then a sign for what setting you want to change. Then you could call any one with a touch of the icon and draw a C followed by drawing another sign. Then to add a wifi network you could just touch and Icon, drawn an S, then draw say a W.

    By doing two signs you leave more use for symbols since the phone will see close things as the same sign.

    What i'll probably do is give the app out and have people test it then tell what I should add and stuff then add it and give it out again.

    Don't limit it to five people. Just post it here, or make a new topic, and ask for feedback. The more people testing it the more bugs you'll find. Also, are you sure you don't want to make a phone call recording app?

    QR reader that emulates "quiQR" for iPods/iPhones. No Android QR reader is adequate.

    im not a dev or a pro at this but i am interested in developing an app. so i dont know if this will work with your version of eclipse or what your running?? but this is what i know or what ive read to be more correct.

    umm i dont know if this will help?you could use the emulator. but first you need to configure an android virtual device (avd). the AVD profile describes the type of device you want the emulator to simulate. including witch android platform to support. and what size, different screems, orientatrions and even a sd card.

    1. launch the android SDK and AVD manager from within eclipse by clicking on the little greem android icon with the arrow on the toolbar. ou can also launch the manager by selecting window, android sdk and avd manager in eclipse.
    2. click the virtual devices menu item on the left menu. the configured avd's will be displayed as a list.
    3. click the new button to create a new avd.
    4. choose a name for the avd.
    5. choose a build target. for example, to support android 2.1, choose the item build target called android2.1-apilevel 7 from the drop down.
    6. choose an sd card capacity, in either kibibytes or mibibytes. choose something reasonable like 1024MiB or less. (for sorage reasons on you machine)
    7. choose a skin. this options controls the diff. visual looks of the emulator. ( go with the default HVGA screen?)
    8. click the creat AVD button and wait for the operation to complete. (it will take a few)
    9. click finish.

    your almost reayd to launch your application.

    creating debug and run configuration in eclipse
    1. in eclipse, choose run, debug configurations
    2. double-click the android application iten to creat a new entry.
    3. choose that new entry, called new_configuration. (or what ever your calling it?)
    4. change the nameof the entry to droiddebug.
    5. choose your project by clicking the browse button.
    6. on the target tab, check the box next to the AVD you created.
    7. apply your changes by clicking the apply button.

    your almost there next up is?

    launching android applications using the emulator.

    after you click the debug button, the emulator screen will launch. theis can take some time, so be patient. you may need to click the menu button on the emulator when you come to the locked screen view.

    well now the eclipse debugger is atteched, and your application runs.

    as you can see im not an expert i hope this helps if not ??

    An app that if you put your phone screen down silences your phone. One that works right. I've tried the 2 I found on the market. One works only sometimes, the other starts working about half way into the sound, not cool in times you need your phone to be silent in hurry or don't want to have to remember to set it on/off
