 Hi, I've been programming apps for a while now and want to branch out
into the realm of widgets. Does anyone have any suggestions on where
to find good tutorials? I've googled the subject and my results are
limited to maybe one or two specific widgets. What I'm looking for is
more of a general tutorial.

Thank you,
Chris Ruskai

I don't have an online tutorial but we have covered this topic in a
fair amount of detail in our 2nd edition of ProAndroid 2
( ) from Apress. The coverage includes state
management through preferences.

The third edition that should be available any time soon have extended
the material to also cover list based widgets in honeycomb.

Here is my journal as I have developed material for those chapters. 

Hope this will be of some help. the journal is useful if you are
looking for answers to specific questions but if you are looking for a
tutorial the book is much more helpful

This has all you need. Along with *real*, not 'hello world'-grade code.

1. Microphone disabled by audio adapter?

Just started using my ADP1 in the car; with an HTC audio adapter, I
can connect a line from the phoen to the car stereo. Works great for
music, but when I tried to use the phone in speakerphone mode, the
internal microphone was disabled. Is there any work around for this?
The HTC pinout has a microphone input, so I guess plugging an audio
adapter in automatically disables it.

When I use the HTC headphones that came with the phone, I am still
able to use the phone as a phone, without unplugging them.

2. How to access storage by using API?

If I want to read/write external storage, like usb drive,
does Android provide this feature to do?

Or how do using Google API to read/write SDcard on Mobile?
Where to get sample code for this goal?

Thanks for your kindly help.
