So deploying PhoneGap to an Android went okay but once I deployed one to an iOS device, the app overlapped on the status bar.

To fix this problem, add these two lines in config.xml.

And in your index.html’s Javascript code, when the device is ready, call StatusBar.overlaysWebView(false);

That’s it!

I had read in some forum posts that you need to also place this in config.xml

Well, it did not work. I have no idea why but calling that Javascript code instead was the one that worked for me. Perhaps this XML tag only works through Cordova’s CLI (Command Line Interpreter).

Not a day goes by that we don’t hear the same message, “we must act to save our planet and our species.” From the mere task and urgency at hand, most of us become overwhelmed by the responsibility and thus do nothing. Understanding this burden companies, organizations, and activists have created tools to help guide us towards the right path, make the right decisions, and take the right actions.

Some of these tools can be found right on our android tablets. They are easy to use, convenient and even fun. Let’s take a look at how we can protect our planet with our android tablets.

The CO2 Fit App

The CO2 Fit App is a tool that will help you monitor and track your transport CO2 emissions. Moreover, it also rewards you for taking sustainable, alternative means of transportation via a virtual green currency. Whether you drive, cycle, take public transport or walk, this tool can help you understand what you need to do to reduce your emission by presenting other greener options available. All you have to do is simply start the app before each trip, and it will track your speed, distance and give you your CO2 emissions value.

Eco Charger

Let’s consider this: every time you leave your phone or tablet plugged when it’s fully charged, you use about another 1 WATT of energy. If we take into consideration all the phones and tablets on our planet, and the number of times an individual may leave them plugged in after full charge, well, that a lot of energy wasted.  To help individuals take action and save energy, this app notifies you when your phone/tablet is fully charged. The app also comes in handy when you are traveling, or when your battery is overheating or is under an abnormally high voltage intake.

GoodGuide

This app is not only good for our planet, but is also good for your health. All you have to do is download the app and use your device to scan the barcode of the product you are thinking about buying.  The GoodGuide app then immediately reveals the health, environmental, and social performance ratings of the product. You can scan foods, personal care products, and household cleaners and items. The app also offers safer and more environmentally friendly alternatives to your product thus guiding you towards a more conscious lifestyle and shopping.

JouleBug

JouleBug brings entertainment, fun, and competition to sustainable living. It is an application that rewards you for your sustainable choices. You can receive badges, pins, and points, every time you take the right action. Whether it’s bringing your own reusable bag, mug, or container, biking to your office, or recycling, JouleBug rewards you for doing the right thing. You can compete with your friends while saving money and reducing your carbon emissions.

Green Globe App

Love traveling, but you also worry about emissions? Now you can travel with sustainability in mind with this Green Global App. The app provides a list of sustainable hotels, attractions, tours and even cruise lines – as sustainable as those can be – so that you can enjoy some luxury without feeling guilty.

Oroeco

Oroeco is another application that tracks your carbon footprint. This app however, does not only track your transportation footprint, it also takes into consideration the goods you consume. The app breaks down your actions, what you buy, and what you consume, and provides you with your emissions number and impact on your planet. You can even compare your emissions number with those of your friends and neighbours.

This is just another way our Android tablets are helping us live a more satisfying life!

Simply follow these steps in Android Studio to be able to get the database of your app:

  1. Go to Tools >Android >Device Monitor
  2. Find your application name in left panel
  3. Then click on File Explorer tab
  4. Select data folder
  5. Select data folder again and find your app or module name
  6. Click on your database name
  7. On right-top window, there is an icon button wherein when you hover your mouse cursor, it shows “Pull” (Arrow pointing left).
  8. Click it and save it on your PC
  9. Use FireFox Sqlite manager to attach it to your project.

Sadly, there is no plugin in Google Chrome.
