1. Maps - position of zoom controls

When I tap my map, the zoom controls appear in the center of the
screen at the bottom.

Is it possible to control where they sit? I notice on the google maps
app, they are aligned into the bottom right corner of the map, which
is what I'd like to do in my own map activity.

Thanks.

2. Using Droid-fu

Hello everyone,
                       I'm trying to use the droid-fu libraries in my
project but I guess I have no idea what I am doing. I plan on using
BetterAsyncTask to send a couple of images to a server and then have
the program return a response. The problem I am having is after I add
the droid-fu .jar file into my build path. I then try to extend my
main activity as follows

import com.github.droidfu.activities.BetterDefaultActivity;

        public class MainActivity extends BetterDefaultActivity {
        /** Called when the activity is first created. */
        @Override
        protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
                super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
                setContentView(R.layout.main);

}
}


Before I even add any code to my project the program crashes if I try
to run it. I get the following exception:


03-02 20:43:47.784: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(3238):
java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to start activity
ComponentInfo{com.marco.servertest/com.marco.servertest.MainActivity}:
java.lang.ClassCastException: android.app.Application

Any help would really be appreciated! I am about ready to give up on
the droid-fu libraries and just use the regular AsyncTask . Do I need
to add anything to my manifest file??
