i've been developing with the android sdk for the past month and its quite nice. The API provides classes for most common widgets and task. Hell it was easy enough that I wrote a working music player in a weekend. http://gonemadmusicplayer.blogspot.com/ ... er-in.html
granted I've been programming for a long time but I was completely new to the SDK/android development before that weekend. I'm not sure what you mean by "blocked" code tho. The OS is open source so you can take a look at pretty much any of the code.
Nice program at your blogspot; and you did it in a weekend! You are truly gifted to pick this up so quickly.
I'm afraid I'm a bit rusty and this might be a little more than I can chew on, as I haven't programmed in many years since taking Turbo Pascal and C (not object oriented C) in my engineering college courses. (I think I had more fun writing programs in my old HP48sx programmable calculator than I did for those classes.)
I came across this "Google App Inventor" but it doesn't allow you to generate the source code (hence for educational purposes). It appears that Java is used and this was kind of what I was inquiring about, regarding pre-coded blocks of programming:http://android-java.blogspot.com/2010/0 ... entor.html
I think before I consider installing/using the Google Android SDK, maybe I need to take a class in Object Oriented C (C++) programming to refresh my memory and get back into practice.
Thanks for replying and good luck with making successful, profitable apps.
