 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.

1. use of h/w accelerators

accelerators ( graphic ) for android 1.6 on x86 platform, so that i
can use my vendor provided  shared objects for EGL and OpenGLES 1.1
instead of the already available libraries and the

Any information related to integration of h/w accelerators would be
really helpful



2. onActivityResult is not working when used in ActivityGroup


I have a Activitygroup and some activities are part of it.

lets say Activitygroup is DetailsGroup which has a activity by name

On certail events DetailsActivity launches another activity
ExtraActivity by calling startActivityForResult(intent, 2);

The extraActivity is launched it does its work and before calling
finish() of it I am calling setResult(RESULT_OK,mintent);

By doing this I was expecting that the DetailsActivity's
onActivityResult() would be called, but instead DetailsGroup
activities' onActivityResult() is getting called.

Any idea what changes are required to get DetailsActivity's
onActivityResult() called in above scenario?
