  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.

2. Alarms (AlarmManager) cleared on reboot :/

The same could be said for linux systems in general, yet cron is almost
invaluable in day to day use of a system because it can provide consistency
etc to trigger apps at certain times. People don't seem to really want the
alarm system as is, they want something closer to cron. The system as is, is
convulted and you need to re-run an app on boot just to see if it wants the
same alarm triggers...

How insane is that?
