    So I'm a Visual Basic/ASP developer and have decided to start out with Android Development. I used to know a little C and Java but it has been a while!

    So, while searching for tutorials I found this:
    Notepad Tutorial | Android Developers

    It is an Android Development tutorial from Google about creating a Notepad application. This is basically their "step 2" of getting started after the standard "Hello World!" example.

    I honestly almost fell over laughing when I saw this. Does anyone else find it rediculously funny that this tutorial exists when the Android OS does NOT come with a Notepad or Notes application!!!! :thinking:

    Since coming from Windows Mobile it is one of my biggest gripes that Android doesn't include a notes app and there it is as their most basic example for building an Android app....absolutely fascinating!

    Thanks for listening!
