Other than the obvious 'no lengthy ops on main thread' , is there a

 Profile your application.

Other than that, sometimes I get the ANR w/o doing anything on the UI
thread (e.g. 99% of all processing occurs on a background thread --
the game thread).
I think it's somehow related to playing audio via the SoundPool (no, I
don't hit the highwatermark on the pool) but I can't prove it.

 It looks like there may be nothing wrong with your app.  Fwiw, Cupcake
includes a few fixes to event dispatching that were causing ANRs when the
monkey command was spamming the system with events.

1. What are people's thoughts on flood of themes on market?

Over 50 checking on Cyrket just now!

I can understand it being a good way to generate extra revenue and
maintain awareness of a product, but come on guys, aHome is already #1
in the downloads, surely it doesn't need any more exposure!!

One theme a week would be fine, but if I want to see whats new in the
market and 60% of new apps are just themes, then this clutters up the
marketplace big time.

Doing a similar search on AppStore -
- this doesn't seem to be such a problem - I think Google needs to
address this.


2. Help with dialog builder and resource problem please

This would make sense, as it's the first (and only) library class that uses
resources from my library projects folder.

I will alter my project accordingly, however, I'm surprised that resources
can't be references from other projects.  It would be nice to see this fixed
or a workaround posted that makes it easy to include resources from other
