How to future proof your Android applications?

Here are 5 points to remember if you are an Android developer and want to make sure that you do not get into problems when the Android v1.5 is released:

  • Don’t use internal API’s
  • Don’t directly manipulate settings
  • Don’t go overboard with layouts
  • Don’t assume all hardware (i.e. physical keyboard) will be available
  • Make sure you allow “graceful” re-orientations of the screen

Yes, that’s it! Just make sure to follow the aforementioned tips and stay trouble free
