Re: Firmware 2.0.15 released - Report Bugs Here

I would swear this update overclocked the processor or something. My A5 is WICKED fast now. Not in games (don't have any) but just general usage. Wow. I don't remember it being this fast. I've been buried in my iPad 3G for the last month and hadn't touched it until today when I read about the new fi...

Re: After update now have paid apps access?

Interesting. I reinstalled 1.7.99 just because, and it broke the paid apps access. I could still see the paid apps tab, but when I selected it, Market would say no matching apps found. I clicked on Market4Archos, removed the Google apps, rebooted. Reinstalled Market4Archos, rebooted. Now it works ag...

Re: After update now have paid apps access?

I had paid access show up on some apps, but not all. I have a Droid phone so I could compare. I tried reinstalling the Marketplace hack but could not get the paid tab to show up even though some paid apps showed on the list. I reinitialized my device and reinstalled the hack. Now Marketplace paid ap...

Re: Firmware 1.7.99 Released Today

I removed and reinstated the market apk and I still can't see the paid tab. I see some paid apps, but not as many as I can see on my Droid. This is not worth a reinitialization for me.

Re: Firmware 1.7.99 Released Today

Finally got it installed. I see "some" paid apps, not all. I have a Droid so I can compare easily. For example, when i choose apps, my choices are Top Free and Just In. On my Droid I see Top Free, Top Paid, and Just In. I see some apps with prices, but the list is missing a ton of apps compared to t...

There was a change from 1.7.94 to 1.7.95. Are you sure you were at 1.7.95 (which came out later the same day).
That must have been it.

Re: Firmware 1.7.95 released - Report Bugs Here

When the device is acting funny, sometimes its best to do a full reinitialization. It is a pain, but I've found it helpful in the past.

Ok, so resistive is what Archos uses, and capacitive is what Apple uses? I assume expense is a reason for going with one or the other. Any other benefits/difference (aside from the apparent difference in sensitivity?)

Re: Android tablet alternative to the iPad

Good feedback. The lack of media playback flexibility is one of the reasons I am hoping to find an iPad alternative. That and the open nature of the Android system. I'd much rather have an Android tablet than an iPad, but there don't seem to be any available at the moment (outside of the A5IT of cou...

Re: Firmware 1.7.95 released - Report Bugs Here

Is there anyone who updated to this fw and absolutely nothing bad happened to? All of these bad responses are making me reluctant to update. Me. You will rarely find someone posting saying nothing happened. A support forum is to get support. If you don't need support, you probably won't post! :lol:

Re: Android tablet alternative to the iPad

Thanks for the info. Will the screen be the same as the A5IT? I am not liking what I perceive to be less control / sensitivity on the screen (capacitive vs. ???). The Droid/iPhone screens seem a lot smoother and more responsive. That screen in 9+ inches would be sweet...

Android tablet alternative to the iPad

I am digging Android a lot more than my iPhone Between my Droid and my Archos I am having too much fun. I'd like a larger screen though, mostly to browse the web while lying down or on the couch. I have been reading about a lot of "up and coming" Android tablets, with the Archos 7 being one of them....

Re: Apple bans wifi finders.

Yet another reason I jumped ship from the iPhone and into the Droid. I've had it with them imposing so many restrictions on what I can and can't do with MY phone. Todays smartphones are even more personal than a Personal Computer. I don't want to give up THAT much control over what I can do with har...

Re: Motorola Droid vs. Archos 5IT

My 24 hour assessment agrees with you! :) For watching movies, the Droid is more pain than it's worth. I am not encoding to those specs just for the Droid and higher specs to watch in my PC or TV. Too much work.

For everything else, Droid does... :badgrin:

Well, I just got done with 2 hours of playing with my brand new Droid, and I LOVE IT!!! All the Archos 5 experience has come in quite handy. However, it ain't replacing my A5IT :lol: I need to Google this more, but so far the Droid is telling me it can't play my videos. It is telling me they NEED to...

Re: Motorola Droid vs. Archos 5IT

But, if I had a choice between the Droid and the A5A, without using the Droid as a phone at all, I think I'd take the A5A for sheer size, potential, capability, etc. I would agree with you there. The A5 with its larger screen and PMP capabilities is a winner. What made the Droid a compelling choice...
