 I'm trying to access "android:versionName" in another XML resource
file. I tried to use @android/versionName and @android:versionName,
but neither work. Can anyone help me out?

 Afaik, the versionName attribute is not a string you can reference
from other resources.

However you can programatically retrieve it like this:
  PackageManager pm = getPackageManager();
  PackageInfo pi = pm.getPackageInfo(getPackageName(), 0);
  mVersion = pi.versionName;

For example I do that to dynamically inject it in my html about page.

1. Proxy settings in APNs


Since I have my own Android device together with Vodafone Live!
InternetFlat I have noticed that most Android software doesn't look
for eventually configured proxies. With my Vodafone connection I am
forced to use a proxy and the android browser and google maps work
fine. But the market for example only allows browsing. The download
doesn't seem to use the http-proxy. The same is with the most
applications in the market. Most do not work. I have contacted some
developers and they weren't aware that have to look for proxy settings
manually. Would be nice to mention the use of proxies in a best
practise or so. And would be nice to fix the market app so that also
downloads of apps also works through the proxy.
