Finally! After tracking everything manually, Google has launched a statistics page for Android developers using the Android Market.
Below you can see some screenshots from TV.Centerr with all the available details.
Operating Systems/Android Versions
The data of this page is scheduled to update once everyday.
Accumulated installs are counted daily as the number of devices with this application in installed state.
Only top 10 values for each attribute are provided in the attributes breakdown table. If less than 10 values are displayed in the table, that means this application install coverage is less than 10 different variations for that attribute.
Attribute values with shares less than 3% are aggregated into “Others” in the pie-chart for visual clarity.
Market reference data is provided as a courtesy. The reference data represents aggregation numbers over all applications in Market. The data of the “Device” attribute is sensitive, thus omitted.
Each attribute breakdown might be inaccurate for various reasons. For example, many user-built Android versions don’t sent checkin message complying with the standard, which causes device attributes unrecognizable.
Now I am happier. Next they have to more regularly update the download/install counter. And fix the comment system (I as a developer want to response to feedback).
The mobile application AppAware launched in February 2010 allows users to find the best Android apps based on the installation behavior of other users (currently more than 70,000 active users). AppAware is looking for an experienced and motivated CEO who will raise funding and market AppAware to potential clients.
Our future CEO should be well connected in the mobile domain and have experience in scaling a start-up from the early phase. A team of creative entrepreneurs is looking forward to meeting you in Zurich soon.
Please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
AppAware offers a nice new and more professional web interface. Here is an example of the TV.Centerr app or check out the GMail page.
I managed to activate the new 2-step verification for my Google Account. The setup takes up to 15 minutes. And they aren’t lying about that. It is quite long and different things are changed or printed out. I’ve taken some screenshots for you to check it out:
At the end, you need to define passwords for applications, which do not support 2-step authentication. This includes your Android device (email and Google Account), your Adwords profile, desktop tools (Adium, GTalk). Each password is assigned with a custom, 16 character password.
Let’s see how this all works out in the future.
Happy New Year to all my readers. I wish you a happy 2011!
Let us go down to business. Time to announce the winner of my Android “Andy” robot competition. A total of 39 people participated and 16 (41%) of you entered the correct answer. The most watched channel on TV.Centerr has been SFzwei. Over 12’600 people have watched SFzwei between September 1st and December 15th 2010 with TV.Centerr. Runner up is Pro Sieben with over 10’600 viewers. Funny, the entered results represent the same stats.
Congratulations to Mike for getting drawn as the lucky winner.
Thanks to all the great donations I have received for TV.Centerr and the launch of the official (German) support forum on www.android-schweiz.ch, I have decided to do a little competition.
Do you know that little green Android robot?
That is right, I will be giving away one cute Andy to a lucky winner. All you need to do is answer the following question and you might have the chance to win the robot.
Oh, and you have to be located in Switzerland. You ask why? TV.Centerr audience is based in Switzerland
Your email address will only be used for this competition and the database is deleted after the competition. I promise!
The competition runs until end of this year (31. 12. 2010) and the winner will be notified as soon as possible.
I am sorry, I usually don’t flame about other people’s software. But Adobe Flash has always been a pain in the ass. I hate it on my MacBook and I don’t really like it on my Android (yes SteveJ, it drains my battery like crazy).
After investigating some issues with TV.Centerr and HTC Desire HD I came across the AndroidManifest.xml of the latest release (10.1.105.7). There I discovered some funny things
android.webkit.PLUGIN is completely deprecated (source). So at some point, that stuff will no longer be supported by the Android system. Bad.
- Isn’t 8 gte 5 (8 > 5)? So Adobe develops for SDK version 8 (Android 2.2) but works with the SDK v5?
I really, really hope Adobe knows what they are doing …
And I still did not find a solution to the Desire HD problem.
