JavocSoft Android Toolbox Library


The changes are:

  • Added method to show GPS settings panel, “dialog_showGPSDisabledAlert()”
  • Added DENSITY_XXXHIGH to device_getResolutionType() or unknown if not recognized.
  • Added the method location_addressInfo() to get some latitude and longitude address information.
  • Now the method “dialog_showExitConformationDialog()” allows to select if move the activity to the stack or close it.
  • Added a method “backPressedAction()” to enable the functionallity of “Press again back to exit”.
  • Added AnimationFactory class, under animation package, from Ephraim Tekle, to perform animations in a easy way. I use it and i think is quite useful.
  • Added an ImageDownloader class, under net/image package, to download image URLs in background and show them in its ImageView.
  • Added the possibility of custom Toast messages, “toast_createCustomToast()”, default ones are horrible XD.
  • Added the possibility of a custom Toast when user press the back button to exit if function backPressedAction() is used.
  • Added the method location_distance to know the distance in meters from one Map point to other using the Haversine algorithm.
  • The “dialog_showToastAlert()” method now allows to choose between system default toast and a custom one.
  • Now the method “share_newSharingIntent()” allows to filter applications using more than one application filter.
  • On Interstitial Ad now user clicks on it can be cached.

I hope these changes can help you a bit more.
