  1. In Topic: What is the best book for learning andriod?

    Posted 6 May 2012

    Most Android books that I have come across do not really provide single exercises. They walk you through making a complete app chapter by chapter.

    Out of them all, i would choose one of the O'Reilly books. I don't have the title of the one that I used starting out (it was on TPB but I can't find it). But since then, they have probably come out with newer editions.
  2. In Topic: Android Layout Issue

    Posted 5 May 2012

    LinearLayouts are not the best for positioning. I personally prefer RelativeLayouts. You can align components better.

    If you don't want to switch, there are better ways to center an item than positioning with padding and margins:
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    or
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true

    dp units are not the same with every device resolution
  3. In Topic: Android Layout Issue

    Posted 3 May 2012

    you can always make separate layouts for each api version.

    For example, you can create a layout.xml specifically for devices running version 4.0.3. Just make a folder in /res named like this: layout-v15. Anything not included in the version specific folder defaults to the regular layout folder, so you don't need to recreate every xml file.

    This can also be done with your drawable or values folder

    Sorry if I didn't catch it, but can you post your LogCat?

    Make sure you list all of your Activities in your AndroidManifest.xml. If you don't, you will get some force closes.
