My first mobile app!

Halfway through my August leave (I managed a full month off this year!?) ... I'm sitting here at 3am having just completed my first mobile app - OK, so it's only a Hello World application ... but from humble beginnings...

It's interesting to note that the process of running an emulator to run the program reminds me of the compile, link, run development cycle from a decade ago when the process on an IBM PS2 took 2-3 minutes.  Launching the Android emulator from within the Eclipse IDE takes around 2-3 minutes.

Anyway, I'm now the proud owner of a Hello World application and am now free to spread this to the world without needing approval from the iPhone people ...
