My projects

I started learnıing Android one year ago. Now i have only one published app. In this year i learned a lot of thing and write a lot of codes and app for practise. But none of them was finished for me. Because i just want to publish useful app with great user experince.

Because of that  now i decide do a major update for my app Show The Way . I already use SherlockActionBar library from Jake Warthon. I will use Polaris map library from Cyril Mottier and support library from google. I will add a history page for multiple location save and built-in navigation on map(only with draw on map). I want to change progress dialog(async task) with thread then hide address and time information with slidingDrawer.

Besides all this improvement with this app, i just start coding one of my ideas. I think it will finish and tested in a mount. I write it because i need something like that and i think user will like it. (I don't tell anything about app idea for know because it is very changeable and i want to add all thing i think.

And on the other hand i am developing Türk Petrol 's Android App in last two weeks(with holiday i just work for 4 work day). I think in this week all of codes finish and after they decide UI, this project will finish in a couple of weeks.

I want to write something about advertisement. I am using adMob and inMobi with adWhirl. I don't trust adMob because they disabled my own account, now i use a account of my friend. But it has average reveune for my 20000 download app. On the other hand inMobi has only 0.5 dolar reveune in last month. I don't want to disturb user with advertisement. I don't want to use any thing with notification or main screen icon ads. Whatever, i am looking for other advertisement company. Any suggestion? Can you share your experince with ads?

And links of libraries i will use.

How to change position of MyLocationButton on new Map API v2 - 2

In my previuos post[1], i mention a workaround for changing buttons on Google Map which we use with google services. It is good to know they listen developers and make their products more development friendly. (I hope it goes like that way all the time and all the product lines of Google) Now we have a method for setting padding of map. It is add padding to useful area of map. We can see full screen map but with padding we can use prefered area of it. It is good for overlay action bar and other things on map view. [ 2] They write a blog and take a video about it. Read blog and watch video if you are using google map in your app :) [3] And finally, They add this method because of this issue. That means, if you find a bug or want extra feature from and api, write to google via this issue tracking system. [1] [2] [3] http://googlegeodeve

Using Accelerometer when Screen Off

Introduction Android Phones have a lot of built-in sensor such as gyro, proximity and accelerometer. Using Accelerometer in Android is a known thing. For listening sensors, class or service needs a SensorEventListener implementation. An Activity is only exists when you are seeing it. When phone enters standby mode, activity which was recently active frozen and restored whenever needed. While this frozen time, activity doesn’t run. Because of that it doesn’t need sensor updates. And Android stop to listen some sensors for power management. Services have this condition like classes (activity). In contrast to class, a service run every time, even when phone is in standby mode. Therefore Services needs sensor updates for some situations. But android stop to listen some sensor(accelerometer) in some different phones. There is a solution for that. This is not an exact solution but it work with a lot of phones. With a BroadcastReceiver listen   Intent. ACTION_SCREEN_O
