I just completed started my first Android app. It works... and its damn cool to see something you built on your phone. That said, there is still a TON of work to do. I hope that I'm not served with a cease and desist order, as Oracle is suing Google for patent infringements relating to Android development. Although, I once read if you're not getting in trouble you're not trying hard enough... perhaps?

Back to the app, its a fire department related app and the only competition retails his app at \$2.99. I've been thinking all along that I will release free apps as long as I have a decent job and my family is not wanting for anything. I believe in karma and as such, I definitely don't want to be greedy (especially as so many people are struggling to make ends meet in the current economic environment).  Not to say this app cures cancer or something, but I imagine the other developer may not like a free app similar to his... I don't know anything about developer decorum in such circumstances.

I'll have more very soon... STAY TUNED!
