Default XDATV Noter

Introduction
Hey guys. I'm working on an Android application for XDATV. We've never really featured a fully functional application on XDATV before. I thought it was high time we did that.

Noter is a note taking application. It is a good representation of several basic Anrdoid APIs.


source & download
Subversion Repository: http://xda-adk.googlecode.com
Project Checkout: svn checkout http://xda-adk.googlecode.com/svn/tr...ts/xdatv-noter
Image of app: http://i50.tinypic.com/qs8ro8.png
App download: https://code.google.com/p/xda-adk/do...XDATVNoter.apk

goals
Demonstrate proper coding style and development.
Introduce n00bs to app development.
Make an expandable single-class app which will have the ability to integrate into future projects.

Questions and Contributions
If you have a question, please ask. I am in no way, shape, or form an Android app development expert. I do java more than anything else, not so much with Android. If you've got something to contribute, please do! If you spot a problem in the code, then let me know and I'll give you credit on the SVN Commit.

I think this is an awesome idea. Many of the developers here don't know the Android framework but have worked with lots of C based languages, so picking up Java (if we need to) is not that big a deal. Hopefully this will be the kind of thing that we can follow and learn the OS and framework as we go along. I know it's ideal for me, being a 20 years Windows developer.

Yeah! That's the idea. Once the video is released I will publish it in the OP as well. I hope its understandable. If not, that's why we have this thread available.

I'm sorry to clog up this thread with a post about help, but I couldn't find a thread for the series for tutorials Adam released about a year ago.

At around 8:34 in part one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL...ailpage#t=513s), Adam adds a button to his test-app thing. It will not let me do this. It shows a no symbol over my cursor when I drag it over the display. I selected the .xml through res and layout just like he did. Only different thing I can tell I am doing is using 4.0 API instead of 2.3.

I have no experience with coding or doing work with Android so I apologize for any common mistakes.

Just the standard tools. A device and a device emulator.

You have to drag it from the bar on the left. There are a set of controls over there which you can select and drag/drop.

Nice video, thanks!

Don't forget to close your output stream; probably more dangerous than forgetting to close an input stream if anything's buffered. Also it's maybe stylistic, but I much prefer Reader/Writer for textual data. If you like System.out style, you can do:

PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new OutputStreamWriter(openFileOutput(FILENAME, Context.MODE_APPEND)));
