 Hey guys,

I am thinking of developing a small application and I am trying to
decide between various Mobile applications platforms - Android, iPhone
and RIMM.  I was wondering if any of you have any thoughts on any of
these mobile platforms, there advantages/disadvantages etc.

Also - how would you compare between the various app stores these
mobile platforms have.

Thanks guys for your help!

This is a better set of questions for the android-discuss mailing list.
The android-framework list is focused on development of the Android
OS/firmware itself.

 Simple, with around 7Mio sold IPhones and a more or less working shop
system, go for it for "fast" money. Android will need at least 1 year,
more likely 2 years to catch up with them. But it depends on the app
you want to write, if you write a business app, go for RIM (now) or
android (perhaps for long term), if you want to write games, i would
primary target the iPhone. It also depends on your knowledge, if you
are an java programmer, with no experience to objective-c or at least
C, stick to android.

As developer i like the android plattform best :)

2. Intent is not properly returned through onActivityResult

I have 2 activities which I need to share data between. The data
passes from the first (parent) activity to the child properly using
the intent and unpacking the bundle in the child class. However when
the child activity ends and onActivityResult() is called in the parent
the returned intent is null. Here is a snippet of the code involved:

// In parent class Parent.java

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);

        configureButtonFunctionality();
    }

    private void configureButtonFunctionality()
    {
        Button b = (Button) findViewById(R.id.UpdateVelocityButton);
        b.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

                        public void onClick(View v) {
                                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                                
launchAviationActivity(Activities.Velocity.ordinal());

                        }
                });
    }

    private Intent setIntentDataForActivities(int activity)
    {
        currentVelocity = 123.0; // privately defined class member.
        Intent i = new Intent(this, Child.class);
        i.putExtra("Velocity", currentVelocity);
        return(i);
    }

    private void launchChildActivity(int a)
    {
        startActivityForResult(setIntentDataForActivities(a), a);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode,
Intent intent)
    {
 /////////////////////////////////////////////////// Here is where the
intent returns from the Child class but is null... /////////////////
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, intent);

        if(requestCode == Activities.Velocity.ordinal())
        {
            currentVelocity = intent.getDoubleExtra("Velocity", 0.0);
        }
    }

// In child class Child.java
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
    {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

        Intent i = this.getIntent();
        Bundle b = i.getExtras();
        currentVelocity = b.getDouble("Velocity"); // value is passed
and received properly here.

       ...............
    }

    private void closeActivity()
    {
        clearFields();

        //Intent i = new Intent(); // Building the intent with either
constructor does not make a difference in behavior
        Intent i = new Intent(this, Parent.class);
        i.putExtra("Velocity", currentVelocity);
        setResult(RESULT_OK, i);
        finish();
    }

I am new with Android and have ran out of explanations for this. Any
assistance will be appreciated :).

Thanks!
