The apk is installed in /data/app and files used by your application
are stored (normally) in /data/data/com.example.yourpackagename. The
apk files are not directly executable, but there is a command that you
can use to invoke an activity from the command-line:

am start -n com.example.yourpackagename/.YourActivity

1. Getting critical feedback on your application

I was wondering how people manage to find the best feedback on the
apps they create. We've developed an application as a test for the
Android platform but the community reviews on various sites are not
the most helpful. 'Bug with text but good everywhere else' isn't the
most detailed description of what's wrong and there is no way to
follow up with these anonymous reviewers. Do people look to forums to
post their app and get feedback or other methods?

I don't want to post our actual app here in case it is not allowed and
I do not want this to come across as spam.

Thank you for any help.


2. How to manipulate order of views in a viewgroup using drag'n'drop

Hi all
I want to develop an application that contains 4 views in one viewgroup

The following interactions shall be possible:

   1. change ordering
      - When you drag a finger from one view to another, the two views shall
   2. maximize one view
      - When you click on one view, it shall maximize (remove other 3 views)
      - when maximized, a single touch shall give back the quad view
      3. Start rotation between maximized views
      - When push and hold, it shall start rotation between all views
      showing one maximized at a time in the same order as the views are
      - When rotation running, a single touch should give back the quad view

I would be thankful if someone can give me some hints how to accomplish
this. If possible with some sample code

Best regards
