I am curious if anyone is creating / testing Android apps on a PC. If so do you have a preferred emulator for doing this? On a side note, is it possible to see the code of an existing app? I have downloaded a few free aps to my tablet and enjoy them, simple games but addicting. I would like to create a new and improved version or add additional levels. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

    I developed Android apps in the past, and I used the emulator that was included with Google's SDK.

    As for the possibility to see the code of an apk, I don't know of a way to do it, but if there is something that allows you to do that, it would be illegal.

    I would never steal code, I would just be curious as to how some thing are done. Mainly if there are API's or other external object/items that are open source and how they are used in the real world.

    I know that is not your intention, Todd.

    I'm just saying that if such a tool exists, it would allow anyone to see someone else's code and pirate their applications easily.
