2Easy Right Size

I just put 2Easy Right Size up for sale in the Android Market!

 My first impressions of the Market from a seller's point of view: much slicker and easier to user than another of the half-dozen others I have used in the past. The process of uploading an app for sale is quick and simple, and it appeared on the Market on my phone within minutes (as opposed to a day on several others).

Android library projects: just do it.

Library projects in your Android application reduce the amount of code you have to write. This can only be a good thing - we know that all software has bugs, therefore the more you write the more bugs there are.

In Eclipse:
  • Create an Android project, right click and click properties.
  • Click Android
  • Check the "library" checkbox.
  • Similarly open the Android properties for another project.
  • In the libraries section click Add and select the project that you made a library.
  • Repeat for several other projects and your library project will be used by all - reuse is a Good Thing (tm).
