 I have a question?
I am planning to start creating apps to be used in another country.
The cellphones will definitely be the android platform and will
operate in the country's 3G network.
Here is my question, is possible to creating my own app-store and take
Google out of the equation completely.
Or do all android-based apps have to be sold through Google
marketplace?

2. How to Format Widget Sizes?

Hi All,

For the longest time I have been trying to figure out how to change
the size of any of the Android widgets. The default widget sizes are
just too big on the screen. I have used the following attributes with
my CheckBox and other widgets, the text sizes changes but the buttons
them self never changes. If anything if I go to small its parts of the
button is clipped.  What am I doing wrong?

               android:layout_width="wrap_content"
               android:layout_height="wrap_content"
               android:layout_weight=".25"
               android:width="30dip"
               android:height="30dip"

Here is a sameple
<CheckBox
android:id="@+id/ckbxTo1"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight=".25"
android:textSize="10sp"
/>

Thanks,
gilgantic
