Back on it –With Java? Ewww… Oh wait its android.

Have to spin up on yet another new technology.  Just finished a Windows 8 store application, now getting ready to take a stab into the Android and IPhone world.

Let’s get started on Installation:

Two paths you can take.   You can let the android install take over or you can customize your environment.
