This is one of my Android phone, bought specially to test our m-DictionaryApp project. I bought it on the last September 2010 (sponsored by a research grant). It was on Android 2.1 (eclair), and never been updated because I was waiting for the official update release by HTC.

Throughout this installing new OS phase, I could not do the screen capture using the AndroidScreenCast. It’s detected as offline by the AndroidScreenCast. So be patient coz it takes more than 10 minutes. Don’t update if you are waiting for an important call.

ViewFlipper Example–a simple FlashCard

UPDATE: Improved with Fling gesture (Sept 2012) UPDATE: ViewFlipper with Flip-In and Flip-Out Animation (August 2012) This tutorial is to demonstrate the ViewFlipper layout that is almost similar to CardLayout (in Java). The app will produce a simple Flash card that provide several screens with different picture for each card. Flip-in and Flip-out animation provided. Added in Sept 2012 – an improvement to support Fling gesture – enjoy… The amendment is only on the coding part. Some how the layout design (main.xml) is quite long. Later I’ll produce separated screen by including several XML layout from outside files. Screenshots;
