 There are several bitmap formats:
ALPHA_8, ARGB_4444, ARGB_8888 and RGB_565
but where are they described?
How am I supposed to know which one to use?

1. New app: my NPR

I finally created my first Android app :-D
It is called "myNPR".  I put it up in the market yesterday.

You can view the latest popular articles from Also find and
listen to your favorite local radio station live stream, mp3 or
podcast.  (still working on the podcast part :-p )

I will throw the code up here in a little bit:
I found looking at you alls code helped me a lot more than looking
over the api docs.

I must say the sdk learning curve wasn't that bad. Although their api
documentation needs some serious "quality time" with some writers.
Too bad they don't "wiki" the api documentation.  The docs would get
filled out a lot faster and users could leave comments about different
caveats they found. :-)  Maybe Google is reading this ?? :-p

Check the app out and tell me what you think!
