Is it possible to desing an application andorid, so that some of the
views of the application could be changed or modified by 3rd party.
e.g take an examgple of default contacts applciation of android, where
in, a screen to add a new entry would have name, home, office numbers
etc.. would this possible to to add more fields by 3rd party like us
so that add a new entry screen would show skype id, ssn number etc by
default to add the new entries..

Taking this in similar lines, I may want to add new button against the
entry so that when clicked on skype entry it should open up skype
andorid version etc..

In all is it possible to add new view items to existing screens of an
application and provide respective functionality.

Any insites to this would be of great help.

 It seems that eventually the Android code will be open sourced, at
which point it should be easy to extend such things.

1. Keeping a database instance open... Bad practice?

Hi Guys,

Is it a bad practice to keep an instance of open database (well actually an
instance of SQLiteOpenHelper and SQLiteDatabase) during application running?

Because every once in a while and with every activity screen some database
operations are done as well (both read/write), I open the database at
startup of my application (Application.onCreate()) and close it on shutdown

Please let me know if this may cause problem or should be done in another

Best Regards,
