Animating resizing of TextView

 I have a textView that changes size dynamically and I want to animate
the resizing.
Here are my steps:
(1) use TextView.layout to set the initial size - editText.layout(0,
0, 200, 50);
(2) use startAnimation(scale) to scale the textView in the Xdirection
(to animate resize)
        android:fromXScale="1.0" android:toXScale="1.5"
        android:fromYScale="1.0" android:toYScale="1.0"
        android:pivotX="0%" android:pivotY="0%"
        android:duration="600" />
(3) Set the new size of the textview using layout() - editText.layout
(0, 0, 300, 50);

If I use ScaleAnimation, the text in the view get stretched or
squeezed. Is there a way to animate the resizing of the textview
without causing the text to get stretched or squeezed?

1. getting time, 5 minutes into future, past 55 minutes in the hour near midnight with TimePicker dialog

Noticed some weird behavior here - if I have:

final Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
     int   mHour = c.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
     int   mMinute = c.get(Calendar.MINUTE) + 5;

and I establish a timePickerDialog like:

new TimePickerDialog(this, mTimeSetListener, mHour, mMinute, false);

I seem to have a problem where if, 5 minutes from now, the hour rolls
over and the TimePickerDialog doesn't display the minutes at all, the
hour is incorrect, and I still see PM, not AM.

Note that I did run this at close to midnight - does this look like a
bug, or am I just using it incorrectly?



2. Are apps able to make money in Android Marketplace? (or, what is the business case?)

You can find out for yourself. Browse the market with a G1 and check
the number of downloads of some of the at-price apps that compare to
your friend's vision apps and that have been made available for
download for a few weeks now. This would be a 15 to 30 minute exercise
that will give you the business intel you are looking for. Then assume
a return rate, deduct Google's 30% cut from the revenue. You're friend
will now the applicable taxes, ODC etc.
This will be an order of magnitude estimate only, but should be
accurate enough to arrive at a conclusion.
