 Is there a way to launch my app from eclipse in landscape mode on the
emulator? Or am I doomed to having it launch in portrait, so eclipse
will build and deploy my app, then launching a landscape emulator from
the command line?

Can't you just use <Ctrl>-<F12> to toggle between portrait and landscape?

 Hi droozen,

In Eclipse do the following.

Select your project
Go to Run > Run Configuration > Then select the "Target" tab.
under "Emulator Launch Parameters" select the "Screen Size" and set
the drop down to "HVGA-P".

I just tested this and it worked for me, my app started in Landscape

Good luck.

 Try Ctrl + F11. May be this is what you need.

1. download of the android source


The repository is HUGE (it include linux after all), and will take
hours. Once you have it, updates are pretty quick.

Yes, in the Android SDK.

2. View apps list in marketplace?

I searched through the groups but I can't seem to find an answer. I
want to see what apps are currently available in the marketplace. I
currently do not own any android hardware so I cannot go to the
marketplace through my phone.

What are my options for viewing currently available apps? I cannot
find a marketplace app in my emulator. The android marketplace website
gives a very limited listing of some apps on the main page but I am
sure this is not a complete listing. Apple has the iTunes browser,
what does google have? I do not plan on purchasing a $400 hardware
device just for this.

What is everyone else using?
