Has anyone used admob in their Android apps? If so, what is your experience
so far?


Experience of using admob

 The implementation is straight forward. The reporting is nice.

I didn't want the ads to show up in horizontal orientation as it takes up
too much screen estate this way. As I manage configuration changes
(orientation changes) myself that took me hours to get it right and was one
of the reasons that I don't use it anymore. If you don't manage
configuration changes on your own, that shouldn't affect you.

Moneywise it was very unexciting, but that was to be expected as I don't
have that many users and probably never will (I am not developing a game). I
implemented it to release my full version until Google opens the Android
Market outside the US and UK and wanted to prevent users from complaining
afterward that they now have to pay for something that seemed to be free
But meanwhile I learned that some users will complain no matter what, so I
removed the ads again.

1. onKeyDown Activity method triggered for long clicks.


I have an activity which overrides the onKeyDown method. The documentation
states the following about onKeyDown:

"Called when a key was pressed down and not handled by any of the views
inside of the activity."

The problem I have is that this method is being called even when the views
inside the activity handle it. I have a button implementing a longPress
listener. What I see on de{*filter*} when long clicking on the button with the
center key is that first onKeyDown from the activity is called then the
longPress listener from the button gets triggered. Even for Textviews, when
long clicking on it with the center select, the activity onKeyDown gets
triggered before the TextView processes the longclick (and shows the Input
Method context menu).

Does anyone know how to avoid onKeyDown to be triggered on these situations?
Is the documentation wrong?
I also considered retrieving the longpress information from the KeyEvent,
but sometimes it does not arrive with the longPress flag set.

I am using Eclair by the way.

Thanks a lot!


2. Hello, Linear Layout - XML Error

Hello all,

I am trying to walk through the Linear Layout tutorial on the Android
website. I followed the instructions and copied the XML code into the
main.xml file, which Eclipse decided to wiggly underlined but when I
run it I am getting the follow error...

"[2009-12-08 19:37:47 - Hello Linear Layout]Error in an XML file:
aborting build.
[2009-12-08 19:37:48 - Hello Linear Layout]res/layout/main.xml:0:
error: Resource entry main is already defined"

Also, I'd like to mention that previous to this tutorial, I followed
the Hello, Android tutorial; which had me create an AVD and create the
Hello, Android project. So now in the Project Expl, I have two
projects... Hello Android and Hello Linear Layout. Can I have more
then one project in this space? If so, then what am I doing wrong
here? It was straight forward copy and paste, so I have no idea where
I'm going wrong.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
