I purchased a motoactv and couldn't use the notification feature because the app is only able to be downloaded on a Motorola handset through Android Market. I have a HTC Sensation and i get the yellow banner in market.

I was wondering if someone maybe has the Motoactv apk and could lend it out?

I love the concept of receiving notifications on my
Wrist since i always miss phone calls AND texts.
I just can't use the feature since I'm with HTC and not MOTO

I wish it did have more options for personalization, EQ for music, or use it as a remote to control music already on your Android device.
But until I get the MOTOACTV app its a big waste of cash.

Do you also have one?

I tried messing around with my Nook to fool the market into thinking it was a motorola, no luck so far. I hope somebody with a moto phone can get this apk!

I will have a Motorola Droid a little later. I looked on Motorola's list of compatible phones and it was listed.
I was wondering what would be the easiest way to pull the apk? It's my friends phone and don't wanna mess it up.

The way I've done it is to just install mybackup from the market, back up the app to the sd card, put the sd card in the computer and open the folder it backed up to. There will be an apk right inside the folder.

Would love for this app to work with my HTC Glacier Mytouch 4G. The fitness tracker isn't cheap and I want the full functionality. A thank you in advance to anyone that can pull the apk.

Yeah I know exactly how you feel. I purchased it primarily for the the notification feature. My guess is we probably won't see anything till a little bit after the new Razr is launched.
But ill have a droid later and pull it from there.

i got the apk off a droid 2 but couldn't get it to install on my EVO, it would just fail saying application not installed, its attached in case any of you can figure out


after looking into it further it seems like the install fails because it requires access to com.motorola.blur.contacts.permission and blur.service.blur.Permissions.INTERACT_BLUR_SERVICE which both don't exist on my EVO...

anyone know a way around this?

Thanks for posting the apk. I found a way to remove the Blur permissions and it installed on my Samsung charge. I don't get the watch until tomorrow, but it looks like the app is working fine :) Someone with one check it out and let me know.

awesome...it worked! You da man! I don't know if future updates will install but this is definitely awesome, can you share how you removed the permissions so I'll know how to do it for future updates?

by the way...just tested it with my EVO and the watch and it works great, tried a few test txts and got the notification on the watch, and it listed the contact name too

Awesome I'm glad it works! I just searched around xda for some info on editing apk files and found this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=695701

Once you get it extracted there is a file named AndroidManifest.xml I opened it with notepad deleted the blur permissions, then used that app to repackage and sign the app. It was kind of a crap shoot on my part but it worked the first try :)

whenever i go to install it says "problem parsing package" any ideas? I'm on rooted device but i doubt thatd be it.

Thanks

Thanks guys have it installed on my Casio Commando, It is working great with text messages.
I dont have it working with phone calls but I think it is because I have standard headphones installed (no microphone) I will test that later.

Thanks a million

This is my first post but as someone who is striving to lose 30 more pounds after losing 55, this is awesome work. I own the EVO and this connectivity was the dealbreaker for me. For Motorola-tied huge to google to hitch their wagon to only Moto phones is a joke, especially on a device that runs Android.

Enough of my rant, thanks again for enabling this on other phones!!:):):):)

I might be wrong on this, but you might need to pair the headset with the phone and not the watch. So both the watch and the headset are paired with the phone, give it a try.

    Did you unzip the app first? I guess I didn't really need to zip it, try this one.

    here is the weather apk and motoactv from my motorola atrix

    I am not able to get the weather app to work on my Evo 4G. I am running CM7 as well but the weather app fails to install. I was able to install the notifier apk that was posted earlier in this thread and I am hoping someone can get the weather apk to work the same way.

    Thanks

    try this.. it works on my Transform Ultra... just tested it.
