 Downloaded it right now and saw your post just after that. Great job, Bob.
The portfolio was kinda depressing.. Oh no, wait.. that's because of the
stocks in the portfolio :(

Overall the app looks sleek and simple. I love it.

 I still believe there is a need to host those application files in
other places as well in addition to Android Market.....because users
using Android device without Android Market simply can't get
them........The problem will definitely become more apparent when more
Android hardware hits the market.....since the market apk is not
available to all manufacturers.

 Agree, at least the Android Market with free apps should be freely available
for installation in Android devices. The free Android market can be part of
the open source build, and the premium version can be kind of a plugin which
is close sourced.

 Not having an app directory on the device is something that definatley 
frustrates users as you can see at the postings in the Koolu forum at ;t=62 (registration required).


P.S. I would do the shameless plug, but everyone can see the site that 
Koolu and NITdroid are using in my signature near the bottom of this email.

2. Testing GPS based applications - Phone choice

Hello Everyone,

I'd like some feedback from your experiences on the best option to
test GPS based applications.

I've been developing apps and in the middle of this will have to ship
out to Afghanistan for a 1 year tour.  Perfect opportunity to
concentrate on the apps in the down-time (nothing to do stuck on a
base  most of the time in a 10x15 shippping container).  This is bad
(with bad being a relative term) from the standpoint that there are no
"data" plans in Afghanistan for GSM phones.  I can get GSM service but
no "data" plans.

If i buy a Android OS phone I'm concerned about how I can update it
with new firmware and load apps.  I will have wifi access, but from
what I've read this will not enable a "push" of the new firmware
update to the phone as if I was with T-Mobile.  Any suggestions on
what phone i should buy and how to "test' my applications where I can
update my firmware and load my apps onto the phone?
