My project started with an idea. What if I could sell my book through the Android Market? What if millions of people all over the world wanted to read my stories from their mobile phone? My imagination was filled with visions of victory. It was an awesome dream… and it’s starting to come true.
While I have been able to make Android say hello, I’ve been having trouble creating my first real Android application. I went back to the Android documentation, to see if I could learn something new. Each step forward is one step closer toward my goal. Today I learned about the Draw 9-Patch tool.
I’m learning. I made my first Google Android application today! I went through the Google “Hello, Android” tutorial. It’s something of a tradition for computer programmers that are starting out. If parents are happy when their baby makes their first steps, novice developers like myself may experience a similiar feeling with the “Hello World” application. I’m one baby step closer to success!
REGISTRATION APPROVED — In the current economic climate, it might be hard to be approved for a car loan or a home loan. Fortunately, it wasn’t that hard to be approved for the Android Market! Here’s the message… “Your Registration to the Android Market is approved! You can now upload and publish software to the Android Market.”
A bit of a wet blanket on my Google Android Market endeavor is the $25.00 registration fee. But hey, I might make thousands of dollars here. I suppose I shouldn’t be too grumpy about that. I don’t mind spending the money. What I mind is the terms of service.
