I want to know is this possible to change the skin in the annunciator bar or
everything on the emulator. Only thing is that the wall paper and the text
written need not to be changed.
Do I need to change something in main.xml ?

Any suggestion is appreciated. Please kindly reply.

1. MapView.setBuiltInZoomControls(true) problem when used in a TabHost

to create a MapView based app works but gives a deprecation warning on
the mapView.getZoomControls() call for 1.6+. The new way is just to
call setBuiltInZoomControls(true) on your MapView and the controls
will appear as before. I just did this on an app where I've placed the
MapView in a tab on a TabHost and its shown another difference. With
the old way, the zoom controls disappear as soon as you change tabs,
but the new one causes just them to persist over the new tab. In other
words, the fading effect that has been applied is too slow, it just
looks plain wrong as they should disappear instantly. Unless anyone
knows differently of course ... ;-)

2. How should I set up my app? Database for flash cards?

I'm about to begin work on a simple app that is just flash cards and
answers...  It will be a couple hundred flash cards (some with images,
some with just text) and the answers to those cards.

My question is, how should I set this up?  Should I use a database to
store each one or what?  I'm afraid if I just initialize an array when
the app opens with ALL of these cards it would make it extremely

Also, I was thinking of having a simple label area that will display

the text of the label area.  I'm bad with GUIs, is this a feasable
