I was hoping one of the software devs on this site can build a skeleton of an app for me. I have very little experience developing software, but would love to learn, and there is an app that I would love to have, but it hasn't been built yet. I have enough knowledge to edit pre-build apps in Eclipse, so the skeleton is all i need. I need an app that can access a database that is in a simple text format which would be located on the device. The idea is very simple, there would be 3 or 4 buttons that when presses would each access their own database of words and display them in a text box right next to the button.


so on...

I should think the coding would be very easy to do, and hopefully this would help me further learn how to develop simple applications for the future. Thank you for your time.

Here you go, but *please* don't say it was easy to do... it took me 30-60 minutes to put this together - *real* time I could have been doing something else!

Unzip buttontext.zip into your workspace, and open with eclipse.

Unzip wordsrcfiles.zip and extract the three .json files... copy them to the root of your phone or emulator SD card. I use JSON because it's easy to import, export and modify (www.jsonlint.com is your friend)

Hope this gives you the nudge you need to write some great apps for all of us:)
