No sorry have to disagree with you there.
From the start on iPhone with bought books I got applications up and running from know nothing to knowing a lot more.
The same amount of time on Android I have nothing to show for it apart from a bog standard not worth mentioning app, well not even that, a front page basically.
I am not saying just because no one answers I am saying that it is pretty naff to have to spend hours, days weeks, MONTHS looking for an answer that never arises and no amount of questions get replied.
Yes I post when I find.
You make it sound as though I am blaming everyone out there for my inability to get anything done? I am not.
My point is it is usually the way on forums especially OS ones where you can post questions and get not one reply, but say anything that even hints at you are slagging off the platform and ....here we are
I do not expect any help as it is all free, but as forums are a way yo share information and knowledge there has to come a time when someone has to post a reply with help otherwise what is the point of a forum full of questions with no answers?
If you have no idea of how to resolve a problem, you search...and search...and search, oh did I mention you search and buy books and ask questions on forums.
So please tell me what next?
Judging by all the apps on the Google market there are a lot of programmers out there who know the answers and I guess a lot are reading this and the other posts so the question is, why not answer and help out otherwise there is no point.
Do you think that this platform will really take off if it is left to a small elite group who proclaim OS but do not practice it?
Once again I have given up on the goal as it is like banging my head against a bloody wall. I have to produce the end products and spending forever searching for no answer is not an option, so now I am back on the iPhone making great progress.
Before you say it "well bugger off and enjoy your iPhone" that is not the point. I need to know, I WANT to know how to program decent programs on the Android but when being paid to produce results all I can do is swear sometimes!
