The Dublin Buzz app is now available on the Google Marketplace for Android apps. Search for “Dublin Buzz”. It is 100% free and 100% ad-free. Hopefully you’ll find it of use or fun. And I will be publishing the entire code base to this blog over the next day or two, to illuminate and describe all of my code, plus all non-code-related twists and turns in getting the app published.
About meThis is an educational website devoted to explaining all about beginning Android development. I discuss common programming tasks in Android using my first app, Dublin Buzz. The purpose is to share and learn! All code is free. I encourage you to download the free app from the Google Market and play with it first. Then you can read the posts and look at the code.
