    Android Development Tutorial



    He throws a bunch of stuff at you really fast. It is hard to keep up. But it's a video. You can play it again Sam. And again, and again.

    Ran into a weird problem and have not really resolved it yet, just found a work around and that is the weird thing about it. On my Ubuntu system I am using the Eclipse ADT system in the videos. But running the APK in the emulator and on my Nexus 7 gave the result

    Unfortunately AppName has stopped.

    But there is another development environment called Android AIDE that runs directly on my Nexus 7. I copy over the entire source code directory and compile on the Nexus and the same source code runs fine. Google is not giving an intelligent response just that when I find the error in my source code they will comment. This is not impossible. Maybe AIDE ignores some error or fixes it, but I do not know what it is.

    Maybe I will find it later when I understand more.

    Another thing. Don't bother with this book:
