I would like to show map of the current location along with a small form <a
text field with a submit button>. what exactly i want to do is:

to let user save his desired location, but with addition of that i would
like to show him on the map where he/she is.

Is it possible to do in a single activity ? any sample code, tutorial etc

Yes. Look up MapActivity.

2. How to properly use Model classes in Android


When traying to do a good design for an Android app, I ussually face a
problem when trying to get some balance between clarity and efficiency,
maybe is a silly situation but for example, let's take a simple shopping
list app:

I can have a really readable model based on two classes: FoodItem and
ShoppingList, where FoodItem represents each item that can be in the
shopping list containing its fields (name, description, price, etc...) and
the ShoppingList item just keeps a list of FoodItems objects and some extra
fields (i.e: totalPrice, etc...).

Ok, now I'm putting an ActivityList for showing and managing my shopping
list with a custom layout for showing FoodItem's data. The simplest way I've
found to load list is using a SimpleListAdapter, which needs to receive a
Map containing the fields of the FoodItem I want to show in the list,
then... what's the best option? Having a method like "toMap" in my FoodItem
class and, consequently another similar method "toMapsList" in my
ShoppingList class to translate my list of objects to a list of Maps? or is
there any other option?

This doesn't seem to be a good solution from the point of view of
efficiency. It seems it would be better to take off from the model and work
just with Maps the whole way.

I don't know if there's a proper way to keep a clean model in an Android app
withouth having to do things like convertir objects to Maps.

Any good solution?

Thanks! :)
