 I imagine myself living my life on a warm island doing nothing but
having fun with my wife and kid(s) ;)
I did start writing for Android for fun though, and like almost
everybody else hope I'll make some bucks.

Cheers

 If you ever get to do that you'll realize it gets old pretty fast.

I love it. But it is not android in particular. I just love writing software. 
Cannot imagine myself doing anything else in my life. I would say that I like 
writing software for mobil devices more than for PC's.





I'm entirely in your camp!
'Love it' is a big word. But i like it! :)
And i, too, hope that the monetary side'll get a little (lot) better.

As the subject says: do we do this for the love of building something
new and exciting ... or do we do it for the hope of money?!

In my case, I'd say different on different days. When I got started
with Android, it was for love of developing on a new platform and
reaching out to a big audience.

But when its the end of a long day and I'm still stuck solving a
tricky problem, I think its the hope of eventually getting paid that
keeps me going!!

Anyway over to you - please be honest!

 >> I might add that so far the love has not borne a whole lot of fruit. It's
heart-breaking...


Haha..

Hope your love succeeds :D

take care,

 I've got enough money for shelter and food, so I guess it must be love ....
or boredom.

Hi All,

Can some one please tell me how can we create a custom application to
unlock the screen. Similar to LASS/LAP on win mobile?

Thanks in advance.

2. Android live translation app

Talking English into the phone and getting another language out is
just too interesting not to be tried.
So I was done with my translation app on Sunday, and wanted to create
a site for it this week.

As it happened, Google demoed *their* translation app on Monday
(Yikes!!) and now I guess I'll just release my own Beta for anyone who
wants to try it out.

You'll find the release statement on http://babeldroid.com and the app
on http://babeldroid.com/babeldroid.apk

Have fun!
