I am facing this problem and now really fed up. Almost 80% of my time is killed by debugging process. The problem is: My emulator goes to "Not Responding" state 9 out of 10 times.
Also I've written a function that performs GET request to a web service and parses the resultant XML, calling that function in debug mode takes a long time. Roughly it takes around 5 minutes.
Can anyone please tell me what the reason could be and how can i fix this problem?
