An Android Side Project

Standard

I have a little free time right now so I’ve decided to spend my time work on a simple Android trivia game.  I spent yesterday trying to set up my environment.  I had quite a few setbacks, so I decided to delete everything and start again today.  Today everything worked like a charm and I got my Hello World app up and working.

Now it’s time to start AndroidScreenshotwriting the application.
