Minor update

Well I didn't get anything done last night. I pretty much spent the whole night fighting eclipse. I updated a few things and had a heck of a time getting the IDE to open my project and build it. Eventually, I got it functional again, but just in time to call it a night and go to bed.

Tonight, I did get a little bit done and resolved my layout issues I was having with my app since I've switched to my EVO. Things were not scrolling correctly as they did on my Moment.

I have a picture below that shows the screen scrolled and you can even see the scroll bar on the right. It's a quick screenshot from my phone, but I wanted to get some kind of update posted.

Now I just have too find the time to implement the other functionality I want to.
Until then.....

Itching to get time for MyMeasurements

Since I've gotten my Evo, I have little time to play with my own apps, not to mention any time to write any code. I have been keeping track of some new ideas and have been making sure to get some notes on paper. Without any code though, I am anxious to get programming and a real update posted.

I am looking to implement custom lists that the user can define as opposed to the hard coded one that currently exists. I am also looking for better integration of my XML notes so my different apps can coexist better. I am interested in implementing a finger drawing aspect as a feature test. It will be a pilot in this app but it's a proof of concept for another app I have been brainstorming and hope well be in development soon.

I have about 5 different I am chomping at the bit to make. I just have to find the time. With spring here, my apps will have to share my personal time with my motorcycle which will just make out a bit harder. The bike is put back together and has already been out for a couple quick spins around the block, but it's still waiting for the first real ride of the season.

I am going to try to get a little programing in tonight after the kids go to bed. I am getting this post blasted out from my phone while I wait for Delilah to finish her dinner. I think we are going to make a family trip to the store as soon as dinner is done and when we return it should be bed time for the little ones.

If I make any real headway tonight, I will follow up in the next couple days with an actual code posting.
