android-wallpaperAndroid: How to Send Request (POST) to the Server (Full Application)

Hi,

Like I said before I am new to Android and I don’t hide it but I’ve started to like it so far. And now I’d like to show you an application which enables sending data to the servers remotely. Before I give you the code, just look at the screens how it looks.

But if you don’t care how it works just download the application from here:

It should be compatibile with 2.3.3 API.

Preview:

Here you can easly send your data to server, just like that. But first of all you have to change settings by clicking on proper link.

PHP Script which saves data

Note: File android.txt has to have proper chmod (777).

How to manage pages?

The feature which will be able to do that you can find in Manifest file. I’ve noticed it is a very important file, something similar to file which defines how to run application, I guess. In my case I wanted to get some pages (Main and Help/Configuration). So then my Manifest file looks:

What exactly I mean by “Pages”, you can find out by clicking link below:
