Breakpoints on a device


I'm a real beginner so please bear with me. I am using eclipse to learn the ropes. I can debug via emulators and when I do breakpoints are working as I'd expect. When I debug on my device (a Tattoo) the breakpoints are ignored, the app just runs. I noticed that when I debug (and target is manual) the emulator has a Yes in the Debug column but my device does not.

Am I doing something wrong or can you not break on a device?



Application synchronization

What would be the best way to implement synchronization between an Android app and a PC/Mac? I would like to synchronize a PC application's database with an Android application's database. Does Android provide an easy way to connect to a computer to transfer data? On the iPhone, I opened a tcp/ip socket and transfered data using a wi-fi connection. Is this what I need to do on Android as well? Thanks.

Help needed regarding the databse in the android aplications

Hi all,

I am new to the android development. I have no idea about the databases used in the android development. when we create the application used the database, then         1)  where the database file is located

                2) how we get the access for that file.

                3) is there any way to get the UI view for the database.

Give me any example code for better understanding.

Thank you,

Frozen Bubble Level Editor

Frozen Bubble is among those games that I have played for years and never gets old. Well ok, it does. For it have only 100 levels, it gets repetitive. So I've decided to program level editor for Android's version of Frozen Bubble, so game play can be endless.

Draw, save and play your own levels in Frozen Bubble. Pick a bubble (color) from list of bubbles and by pulling and clicking into drawing field create your level. After save you can fire up Frozen Bubble from menu. Editor comes with 40 levels pre-loaded, so you can play them right away. If you are out of ideas, perhaps you can use one of default levels as template. For more see video, or better - try it ;)
