    Blackberry/Droid App Building

    Does anyone here have experience with building apps for these phones? I am looking to create a very simple app that directs the user to a specified web page containing a survey. I can create an icon.

    Would need to work with the Blackberry/ Droid devices.

    I just started learning how to code for droids. Not sure if I'm completely ready for app making, but my friend might be. I'll ask.

    I have a couple of apps for Android under my belt. One is available in the Market, or from the web site: Handy Quote. I've looked at programming for Blackberry, it's also a Java-based device, but have not coded anything for it.

    I have Eclipse with Android Developer Tools and also downloaded the SDK package. However, when I create a new project I am not sure what namespace to give it and it won't allow me to click finish.
    Does the namespace have to be com.something or can it be whatever. Also, any idea what I should enter for the Min SDK Version or will 0 be fine?

    NVM on that, I forgot to point to the SDK Manager in Eclipse preferences. It wouldn't let me finish because it didn't know what platform to use.

    Ok so I got the app made and I want to test it. Is there a way to use a custom icon with Eclipse before I install it on a device?

    Did you install an Android emulator? Eclipse should be able to connect to a running emulator and install and launch your program there. I don't have specifics for you because I work in Eclipse on Linux.

    I can run the program on a virtual device but when I connect an actual Droid to the computer, Eclipse doesn't seem to know that it's connected.

    Go into Settings on your phone and under Applications / Development, turn on USB Debugging. Not sure on Windows, but you probably need the Android debugging service running.

    Edit: Oh, and is your phone rooted?
