Performance: pre-instantiate activities on app launch? Good practice or not?

 Thanks for your reply Dianne.

As to profiling, I looked at traceview, but seems to be a bit overly
simplistic to actually profile a whole app. What I understand from the
documentation, what it actually does is measuring the time it takes
for a single method to complete. That's not a terribly useful
information if you want to see the big picture, however (i.e. get
answers to questions such as: how much time does the app spend in
which parts of the code base?).

Are there any plans to make traceview a tad more capable? That would
be great news!

1. Problem with WebView

Hi. I have a WebView which loads a webpage that uses a form, for the
user to complete.

I set this method:


...which helps the webpage display properly.

However, for some reason, when you click in the text fields on the
webpage, the soft keyboard fails to popup - but only on my HTC HERO!
On all other emulators and devices I've tested, it's fine.

It works if you 'long press' in the field, but new users would never
know that.

Any suggestions?


2. Honeycomb SDK

Hi there...

a quick request/plea to any Google employees that happen to be lurking
around the group at the moment.

Many of us here will have seen the CES preview video of Honeycomb and
probably like myself are super e{*filter*}d about the possibilities for a
future Android tablet version of our own apps.  Judging by the apps
already delivered in Honeycomb versions (at least GMail and Books by
my reckoning) the SDK is probably reasonably stable.

Is there any chance that a Beta version of the SDK could be released
so that we have the chance to play with it?  If not a Beta SDK, how
about access to the Beta Documentation?  It would be incredibly
helpful to us ordinary developers to have at least some idea about the
design opportunities that are ahead of us.  I'm sure Google want to
encourage us all to enhance our apps to take advantage of all the cool
new stuff that is coming in Honeycomb rather than just do the minimum
required to port to the new version.

So, how about it?  Any chance of some advocacy with the Higher Ups on
behalf of us little guys?
