my background is low level advanced C++. I have done C# a bit and just started looking at android, but didn't like the book style
you recommend a free online book?
Just curious any way
The alpha channel is for transparency.
RIM has an online converter that changes an apk to a bar that the PlayBook can run.
I don't use books for learning coding so I can't recommend them. I will use books for reference occasionally but mostly I find tutorials and code snippets and learn off of that. Code snippets are the best way to see commands in action with proper syntax.
