Hang on, I never stated I was going to decompile and copy. I stated I was interested in how the did this, that is all...

And with the common use of ProGuard, decompiling is useless in most cases anyway

I totally agree with this. Just because someone else has found out how to do something doesn't give you the right to decompile it and copy. In some ways I feel that's worse than piracy.

The fact that tools exist to allow you to do so is not really the point. The developer may have a license agreement in some EULA somewhere that says decompiling/reverse engineering is not allowed. As developers ourselves we should be sensitive to such matters.

As its free, I see no reason why you cannot decomile and have a look at the magic they have done?

By the looks of it, you cannot use the apps in the background, so all they have done it use a transparent view as the background, and a custom view on top which displays the calc.

Hi guys,

 

An implementation question here. This calc app (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.myboyfriendisageek.aircalc) floats in front of whatever else you have open. However with my limited knowledge of the API's, I don't know how this would be programmed!

 

How would you guys go about implementing something like this?

 

Thanks

 

Paul
