  I would like to DESIGN and then CODE a Media Player Application
where-in a list of files stored on the sd card are shown on one page.
When the user clicks on a file, it should be played on another page.

  Given a few steps, I can code an application. But what I would like
to know is how do I go about with the DESIGN part? Being a junior
programmer, I am new to the world of DESIGNING / ARCHITECTING
applications and related best practices / methodologies. Hence, need
some expert advice from you to BUILD a ROCK-SOLID Mobile Application.
This will help me think in terms of a Mobile Application Architect!

  I am sorry if my question is not android specific at the moment. If
this is not the correct mailing list, please point me to a relevant

  Any links, pointers, guides would be very helpful. Thanks.

1. downloadable tutorial resources?

I'm heading to the airport tomorrow, and will be travelling for about
14 hours.  Was hoping to use that boring time to start reading more
about Android... but without internet access, most of the existing
resources out there will be unavailable to me.

Does anybody know of downloadable tutorials oriented towards people
with some programming experience, but no experience with the Android
SDK - videos, pdfs, docs, etc?

Thanks in advance for any responses!


2. change image onConfigurationChanged

Hi all,
I have an activity which handles configuration changes by itself e.g
it's not destroyed and recreated every time. But now i have to change
one image with another when configuration is changed. The easies way
is just to remove android:configChanges attribute from manifest and to
let android handle config changes but there are some resources coupled
with activity lifecycle which i don't wont to refactor right now. So
is there a way to change image for different configurations manually.
I tried in onConfigurationChanged callback just to set again the image
drawable and hoping will get the correct image but it's still showing
the image for portrait view ( the two images are placed in res/
drawable and res/drawable-land :)
