I can't seem to run this program. The red cross appear on FriendFinder but there were no other red crosses on the other folders. When i tried to open main.xml, it says that "Could not open the editor: An unexpected exception was thrown." How do i fix this problem?

I get confused about your project. You just store some friend's location in your contact right? But what if they move, then their location will change.
And more importantly, you have to ask your friend for sharing their location because not everyone is willing to share their location.
By the way, your tut is very interesting, thank you very much!

Hi,

Did anyone find a way to replace Contacts.ContactMethods.POSTAL_LATITUDE and Contacts.ContactMethods.POSTAL_LONGITUDE since ContactMethods is deprecated? The documentation says we should check ContactsContract but I cant find a smooth way to do this.

Hi, I'm new in android. I got the same errors. When i first extracted this app. Earlier I got many errors from manifest file and xml file. But i already fixed those. Then i went to Build Path, there was 1 error android_sdk_m3 is missing. I replaced it by other android sdk. Afterthat i got many errors from the FriendFinder and FriendFindermap which i don't know how to solve them such as :

import android.content.IntentReceiver; can not be resolved
IntentReceiver cannot be resolved to a type

Very thankful for the fast responses.

Regards

Lucas
