 I haven't found any either...that's why this was my last hope. Well,
let's see if any "artist" read this and give us some good pack ;)

 I may be that "artist."  What kind of icons do you want to see?

 Or I should say: what do you want the icons to represent?

There is this, by the way.  I haven't looked through all the links,
but there may be some tab style icons in there.

 Well, thx JonFHancock for your interest,

  in fact now I'm needing some "transport" icons for a proyect: bus,
car, bike, etc.. Also a "favorites" icon (a star?). But maybe
something like this 

would be useful to a lot of coders.

 How is this for a start?

Zip file containing white and gray tab icons for bus, car, bike,
pedestrian, and two types of star in sizes from 512px to 32px: 

Here is a sample image: 

If you like them well enough, I'll tackle making more, and put them up
on a nice site.

My development career in Android revolves around icons (launcherpro
icons app), and I've been itching for a way to contribute something
free to the dev community.  I welcome any feedback in general or
particular about the icons.

 Well, i LOVE them,they are great thank you.

  I really encourage you to make more icons. I think many developers
lack design skills as me, and need some good icons packs
for their proyects. Maybe some of them could give you ideas in this

  Great job Jon, and thanks again.

1. Calculating distance between GPS position and way_point

Well that doesn't make sense since it doesn't match the function

This means exactly what it says - that the method you're using,
distanceBetween, is not defined for the type for which you're trying to use

You use it like this:
float[] results = new float[1]; // 1, 2 or 3 depending on what information
you want
Location.distanceBetween(lat1, lon1, lat2, lon2, results);
float distance = results[0];

I have no idea what you're asking.

See above.

2. issue with dynamic Multi selection alter dialog

hi there,

i wanted to create a dynamic multi selection alert dialog, currently
it only supports for hard coded values i think ?... i have tried
several ways and very much unsuccessful till now ..

i am fetching the values in JSON format and converting to JSONArray.
but how to input this to builder.setMultiChoiceItems, because it takes
only itemId from xml, cursor, or charsequence. i tried all ways i can
think of for chaging the array to charsequence.. eclipse did not
showed the error but app crashed in android throwing the cast
exception ...

below is the code, any help / suggestion would highly help !!
thankyou!.. (i am new to both java and andriod)

                                JSONArray friendsArray =
                               CharSequence[] friendsNames = null;
                                for (int i=0; i <
friendsArray.length(); i++) {
if(friends.getString(friendsArray.getString(i)) != null) {
                                                //friendsNames[i] =
