 I'm looking to take up android developement as a hobby but wasn't sure
where to get started. I plan on spending a little time a night trying
to learn the programming needed and get familiar with the SDK once I'm
up to speed but wasn't sure where to start. Any guidance would be
appreciated. Thanks

Do you know Java? If not, that's priority #1. If you do, a book on Android
and the online documentation and samples are probably a good place to start.

 SDK is the best assistant.

1. Problem in programmatically installing a 3rd party App onto the SD card

You cannot modify Settings.Secure values from code. Please allow the
user to change that setting via the Settings application.

Note that you cannot have the SD card mounted both on your development
machine and on the device at the same time. If you want to be able to
access files on the SD card from code, you need to unmount the SD card
from your development machine.

2. Problem in programmatically installing a 3rd party App onto the SD card

Hi Guys,
I am trying to install a 3rd party free app through code. I initially
download the apk from the web-site (androidfreeware.org), store it on
a SD Card. I am using an emulator to check whether my app is working
properly or not. I have attached a SD card to the currently running

    Then when the user clicks on the Install, I use this code to
install it on the SD card.

public void onClick(View arg0) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                boolean success;
                int result = Settings.Secure.getInt(getContentResolver(),
                                Settings.Secure.INSTALL_NON_MARKET_APPS, 0);
                if (result == 0)
                        success = 
Settings.Secure.INSTALL_NON_MARKET_APPS, "1");
                Intent intent = new Intent();
I read somewhere that in order to install 3rd party apps we need to
set the value of INSTALL_NON_MARKET_APPS to 1. Do we need to set any
permission in the manifest file. Also, when I checked logcat I got the
following error

     Could not read the AndroidManifest.xml file of /sdcard/test.apk
and then it threw a FileNotFound Exception

What could be the problem ??
