Blog Reader

I have uploaded the application to my phone, and I have noticed that my blog reader application does not work when I am not using wi-fi. Is there a reason for this @benjakuben?

Hello Gamal,

If its not to late to answer your question, I think I have it.

In the Android Documentation (http://developer.android.com/reference/android/net/ConnectivityManager.html)

if you go to the method "getActiveNetworkInfo()", used in the Blog Reader project, it says that this method returns details about the currently active DEFAULT data network.

I think you can't use the app because your Wi-Fi is the default network, so when its offline, it returns "null" details.

Probably to use this app with either Wi-fi and 3G, you should use the method "getAllNetworkInfo()".

Hope I helped =)
