Maps API access to SKY Tiles

 I'm interested in accessing the Sky database using the Maps API in
Android.  While there are direct methods for boolean queries and
setting states for traffic, satellite, and streetview I don't see
anyway to change to the Google Sky database.  The javascript Maps API
has sky, mars, moon and much more but that would require I do all my
programming through the browser as a web app.  I would really prefer
to use a MapView and take advantage of the Android OS.  Does anyone
have any suggestions on how this could be done?  Is there a way to
utilize Maps API commands (the javascript version) from within Android
(ie: mapview method to change map tiles to sky tiles)?

Thank you,

2. Not show a ProgressDialog from my Activity

I try to show a ProgressDialog at the beginning of my application from
an Activity. I debug the application and in theory the dialog is
created because it prints a line from onCreateDialog... method.

Any idea?

For more test, I try to show a toast with:

Toast.makeText(MyActivity.this, "test", Toast.LENGTH_LONG);

And nothing is showed.

If is useful, the application is a widget.

Thanks for all,
