Re: Android 2.2, rumors, speculation and facts

Good evening (East Coast USA), I'm a first time poster. <snip> My only disappointment was not having a camera, especially a front facing one for Skype (my wife has family in the Philippines). It boggled my mind that I would have 500 gig of storage for music and apps. But now I'm learning (even befo...

Re: did my battery dock freeze? as in made into an ice cube?

It's unlikely the dock froze .. there is no liquid to freeze and temps in the range you mention shouldn't damage the unit. Probably it's defective and you should try for another exchange. i have had trouble with my dock, and so have others, but it usually revolves around the crappy connection of the...

Re: Android 2.2, rumors, speculation and facts

and i recommend the battery dock to everyone, and the DVR dock after a year, my battery dock no longer charges my Archos. Yeah, I know, it's strange. Had this behavior and in my case it seemed a connection problem rather than a dock problem .. cleaned the connections on the dock and the archos (car...

Re: Hooking Up To Car Stereo

Yes there are several ways to do this (in order of preference): 0) If you have or are willing to, buy a bluetooth a2dp receiver or a car radio that comes equipped with one. Pair your Archos to it. Profit. 1) If your car has AUX in, then just plug Archos headphones out to Aux in. Profit. 2) If you c...

Thanks very, very much Matula!!

Also for those that were thinking it had to do with the A5A, well it's not 'findable' using an Eclair (2.1) Android phone ... strange???

Re: Graffiti for Andriod

If your daughter has graffiti on her Wildfire, try downloading and installing "Android Manager Free" onto the Wildfire, from the Market. Then use the "Appmanager" module / tag within the app. A long press on any app brings up a menu from where you can make a backup apk file of the app. As you do it...

Re: Graffiti for Andriod

Hi All, hope it's OK to bump this old topic - has anyone found a way to install this app? I'm a long-time Palm user and having graffiti on the A5A would be really useful for me. Alternatively, my daughter has installed it on her HTC Wildfire - is there any way to get to the .apk file on that device...

If you look at my website, http://www.bdow237.tk or my youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/bdow237 I have a video on how to get completely free calling on your archos 5 IT or android phone.

Yup, the Gen 8 devices are in manufacturing at this point, so they've already got the FW in place for those, although there's no doubt a lot of polishing going on for release, ATM.

Re: Free Calling from Gmail through GV and Gizmo5 - No Phone

This would be a great feature on the A5A .... but without a 'fully supported browser' is seems it ain't gonna work ... without a lot of digging seems this feature needs flash and java at a minimum, so until/if the A5A OS is upgraded we're outta luck. As others have pointed out the SIP-Sipdroid-GVDia...

Re: Graffiti for Andriod

Michael ... as always very helpful!!

Can't imagine the criteria that would 'deny' the A5A, perhaps just that Access didn't put 'us' on the list ... oh well

Thanks to all again.

Michael .... thanks for the tip about AppBrain ... check the 'specs' on that site and it indicates Graffiti for android 'for all android versions' .. so it 'should' be on the market. However, after installing AppBrain (didn't really want to, but want the app) it did indeed find Graffiti ...............

Thanks for the responses ... yeah, I get the same thing, lots of places say it exists and have a barcode but cannot find it in the market .. the info on the Access site makes no mention of a particular Android version, but that means nothing of course .. they talk about phones so perhaps it is 2.0 a...
