The unofficial wich apps are working on Tattoo!

    Hi!

    Since the HTC Tattoo doesn't support all the applications that are made for Android, I was thinking we could make a list, showing wich apps are working, and who isn't.

    So if you download a program, can you be so nice to share your experiences in this thread? I will update this post after people (and myself) tests programs.

    Downloads can be found at www.slideme.org

    Have a nice day, Joachim. :eek:

    Thanks! Updated the post now.
    I just got the Tattoo, so I haven't gotten around to test so much yet, but I'm off "duty" tomorrow, so I will download lots of apps then. :)

    Barcode Scanner seems to run, although the camera on the Tattoo cannot focus close enough to make it work.

    Information for those who have the Tattoo from Orange:
    Orange have inexplicably removed the GMail, GoogleTalk and YouTube applications. They've also put on a couple of game demos and their own links/apps, none of which can be removed since they've been installed to the system. It is possible to pull the GoogleTalk and YouTube packages out of a standard HTC dream image (HTC - Developer Center), install them via adb and they seem to work perfectly well. The GMail app, however, does not - I can install it but when it runs (or synchronisation is attempted) the program falls over. Doing a bit of digging by watching the logs as it happens I determined that Orange have also disabled the GMail permissions somewhere deeps inside the unit (probably in database that cannot be modified without root access). If anyone has official Tattoo package files for the GMail application I would appreciate a look to see if they work instead. It is very annoying that Orange have disabled some of the core functionality of the phone!

    Out of curiosity, where did you find the Sky Maps package? I've searched in Market and SlideMe but can't find it!

    Hi!

    Thanks for sharing this, I've been wondering why so many people are asking about wich Youtube-app they should use, but now I understand.

    I had to download it from a Torrentpage, I don't know if I can link it here, since the torrent also includes lots of pirate-copies. I will upload the .APK to a server and give you the link to that.

    I uploaded it to Megaupload, http://www.megaupload.com/?d=J1ENYNAV
    If you can't download from Megaupload, please tell me a different site I can use. :)

    I have actually found that YouTube works in the browser using the HTC flash player automatically, however it results in very jerky video. Much better to use the proper application instead!

    Thank you for Sky Maps, just tested it out and it works nicely! I like how it makes use of the internal compass and sensors to match where you are looking :)

    On another forum somebody posted a comment they received from Orange saying that they had not disabled GMail functionality and that users could install the app themselves and it should work. This is contrary to what I have found so far, however the GMail apk I used was taken from the Dream 1.6 image from HTC, so perhaps there were changes that mean it will not work on the Tattoo.

    To further my research would it be possible for somebody with an unmodified Tattoo to copy the GMail packages from the /system/app folder and send them to me please?

    There seem to be a lot more applications available in Market today than there were last week, maybe a lot more have been marked as compatible over the weekend?

    MaxiP:

    Thank you very much. I installed the Gmail package and unfortunately it still does not work, however, the error message I get when debugging is very different and the package is quite different from the Dream one I was using.
    I think the error message is now something to do with missing another related package, possibly the GmailProvider apk file. Can I be really cheeky and ask you to upload that one too, possibly include any others that you think might be related and perhaps also the GoogleTalk and YouTube ones too, since they are likely to be slightly different from those in the HTC Dream image.

    Many thanks,
    Dan

    UPDATE: Ignore that request, I've managed to pull all the packages from an actual tattoo image!

    i've got a problem with my Tattoo.

    @ Bertelsen: where did you get the IM+ (lite) app?

    I've been searching for it the whole day.
    It's not in the market and I also couldn't find it in the internet.

    the same with eBuddy.

    would be nice if you (or somebody else ;) can tell me where i could get them.


    here is my list:

    working:

    aSpotCat
    Document2Go
    FotMob4.5
    GPS Status
    Mileage
    SayMyName

    Hi guys, I just got my Tattoo on Monday and have been a little disappointed with the apps available for its low resolution. But I love the phone and am happy to say that Last.FM is now available through the Android Marketplace. It works quite well too.

    How do you get eBuddy or Skype Lite? Do I go to slideme.org on my phone or though my computer?

    Thanks

    I've also found that nimbuzz (similar to ebuddy) is available on m.getjar.com
    It includes skype contacts but you are unable to make skype calls, only chats.

    We just posted an update of Executive Assistant (Appventive) that supports the Tattoo. Our other apps will become available for the Tattoo over the next few days.

    Just search for Appventive in the Market or scan the qr code in my profile.

    I'd love to hear from anyone who tries it out on the Tattoo (or in general).

    Cheers,
    Steve

    what is ok:
    TowerBloxx

    what got a bit of problem but still ok:
    Bejeweled

    By the way, anyone know if the My maps editor is available to download anywhere in the planet? I need it badly!!

    We released an update for ICE: In Case of Emergency (Appventive) yesterday that supports Tattoo (and Droid). Motion & Sound Alarm to follow shortly.

    BTW, our Executive Assistant app (also available for Tattoo) made it to the final round of the Android Developers Challenge (ADC2)!

    As always, please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions or problems.

    All the best,
    Steve

    I'd just like to thank everyone for making this list, and tell you about another app. :)

    If you go to qik.com you're presented with an option to download their program and install it right away :D, it works like a charm although the video can be a bit choppy at times, I've only tried it on the wifi network yet as I'm waiting to get a data plan.

    If you don't know what Qik is :confused:, it's just like ustream.tv, bambuser and other live video sites.

    On the not working (at least for me) list is myspace.com :( where you're also greeted with an apparent link to the Android Market that doesn't work (presumably because the myspace app hasn't been approved for the puny qvga screen yet)


    also I'm very sleep deprived right now and can't focus on just writing posts, must play with smileys and fonts! :rolleyes:
