Still think it is very odd that some other apps can make top 50. Over 10
of them are just basic XML parsers.

In winning entries, too bad we saw simple weather XML parsers like the one in your tutorial and several others are really way off the mark compared with some of losing entries. I particularly felt sorry for them since some of them even quit their job and did not feel respected after failing to make the winning list of an unfair contest.
I know you have a decent AndNav entry and contributed tremendously to this community. Without your website, I couldn't have solved many of my Android problems. You deserve my respect. I have been on the engineering staff for the world's largest GPS company (not TomTom ) and did see the potential of your app. Tell you what - I was in the 2 software contests in the past and this ADC contest is the first time I did not succeed, but that is OK. I have done many things without the pressure of having to win anyway.
Good luck and thanks for your site.
