Fast Forward

In this chapter, we learned how to jazz up the Android Home screen with widgets and a live wallpaper. The Android Market is full of examples of both that people like you have created. I'd love to see yours there, so read Chapter 14, Publishing to the Android Market, on page 271 for directions and encouragement.

Note: If your application provides a widget, live wallpaper, or other home screen enhancement, you should not allow it to be installed from the SD card. See Section 13.6, Installing on the SD Card, on page 268 for more information.

When Android first came out, there was only one version and one phone model to worry about. Now there are several dozen devices of various shapes and sizes running at least four different versions of Android. You're not in Kansas anymore, but the next chapter will help you avoid the flying monkeys.
