Android pedometer app – part 1

About me:
Hi everyone, my name is Nelson Ramirez. I am a New York based Flash Developer currently learning android.
I’ve fallen in love with android and I wanted to document my learning journey in the hopes that it will not only help me but also other people new to android.

While I work in a digital agency (of the decade) doing creative advertising my passion has always been games. With android and mobile I hope to make a return to gaming. {something about social games}

Why android?
because it’s cool. connections, social, sensors, very personal. communicate interact with other devices.

My android:
I recently got an Motorola Droid X , a piece of hardware which I like a lot.

My app:
My app is a step counter that can run in the background and record your GPS location.

What it will do:
You can record and view how many steps you’ve taken.
You can view an estimate of how far you’ve walked.
You can view a map that traces the GPS route you have walked while recording your steps.
You can start and stop the recording of your steps.

    Hi, my name is Ayubi from Pittsburgh.
    I’m interested to take a look of your code, and if possible want to participate in this development. Could you share your code?

    Thank you.

    Sorry Ayubi,
    Thanks for the interest but I can’t really share the code as it’s for a client.

    I can only share what i’m learning from it.

    Well, which is it? Can you share the code or not?
