Selling Apps on SlideMe

I just release my first app on SlideMe. This app is pro version of Show The Way (Where is My Car?). Now i can sell apps on slideMe.

I have no big expectation on this. But this is only way for selling apps on android in Turkey.(I only found one way. If are there different methods for that please leave a comment or send a mail.)

I will update this post after some sale (I hope someone buys.)

Get the Show The Way Pro Android app from SlideME.

Or free version on Play Store

Download From Play Store - Free


  1. I guess Turkcell T-market does it but it requires from you to sign-up some "sozlesme" blah blah. SlideMe is a good alternative tough.

    Did you do anything regarding to stop privacy? If I buy from SlideMe and send it to my friend, is it gonna work?

  2. About privacy i think you are right. There are no protection for that now. But slideme has an API for that, SlideLock. I did'n use that now. Because everyone can download "Arabam Nerede" from Google Play Store. On the other hand if someone want to donate or just want my apps (Arabam Nerede? and future apps) without ads, they can use slideme . I just want to learn selling apps on android. Honestly i don't wait for huge selling on slideme.

Using Accelerometer when Screen Off


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 listenIntent.ACTION_SCREEN_OFFand register sensor listener a…

How to change position of MyLocationButton on new Map API v2? Explained

When an app use map and design some layout on this map (TextView, Button or image), developer needs to change position of default buttons of map view. (MyLocationButton, ZoomControl or compass...) As far as i know, there are two possible way for changing position of myLocationButton's position.

1- * - Disable it
    * - Create new button programmatically
    * - Add animateCamera(toCurrentLocation) to onClickListener of this button
    * - And place it wherever you want

But if you don't want to write all that there is a hack for that.

2 - * - findViewById() of hardcoded button with;
ZoomControl id =0x1MyLocation button id =0x2      * - And do whatever you want:
// Find map fragment
SupportMapFragment mapFragment = (SupportMapFragment) getSupportFragmentManager().findFragmentById(;

// Find myLocationButton view
View myLocationButton = mapFragment.getView().findViewById(0x2);

if (myLocationButton != null && myLocationButton.getLayoutParams() instanceof RelativeLayout.…
