A few Android tips

by ChristopherLowe on January 18th, 2012 at 05:09 AM
Well I have been working with Android for a few weeks now and I am absolutely loving it. Here are a few little tips I have discovered along the way to make life easier.

Playing sound in andoird

by ChristopherLowe on January 7th, 2012 at 12:04 AM
Adding sound and music to your app is extremely easy. Place your sound file in a new directory res/raw.

import android.media.MediaPlayer;

MediaPlayer myMusic = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.splashsound);
myMusic.start();

where splashsound is the sound file's name without the extension.

    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical" >

Setting up a workstation for Android development (without an IDE)

by ChristopherLowe on January 5th, 2012 at 12:39 AM
Introductions
Hi! My name is Chris and I love to program. This is the first of what I hope will be many blog entries on Android development. At times, the content may appear scattered like I have A.D.D. or something. That is because I will be adding things as I work; links, snippets, etc (who am I kidding, I just smoke too much pot). This is not a tutorial, I will not hold your hand and lead you towards enlightenment. Think of this more like breadcrumbs I leave along the path to becoming
