Intention / OpenSource
One reason to OpenSource this app was to demonstrate a real live application with Fragments, ActionBarSherlock and Roboguice, that targets different versions of Android, different devices (N1, Tablet aso.) and AdMob, all in one place. The application was also developed as a tribute to all the OpenSource material that I have benefited from in the past.
Development / Settings
It should be easy to setup for you. The only tricky part is adding the ActionBarSherlock part. Under doc/dependency/ I have added a link to the version of ActionBarSherlock that I use. The screenshots below should guide you through the rest of the setup process:
All dependencies are under the license set by their respective owners

If you use www.defaulticon.com icons in your Android project it's very easy to generate your own iconsets for Android (At least on Linux or Mac OS).
Check out the script in doc/bin/genAndroidIcons. (Don't forget to chmod 700 doc/bin/genAndroidIcons) (Tested on Mac OSX 10.8.2, should also work on Linux. Sorry Windows user, there is no script for you) Here you can see one of the preview files that the script generates. The preview.png was generated with a border and a shadow so that it's easier to see the thumbnail dimensions.
Below you can see a screenshot of a possible file structure the script generates:
If you have more than one physical device connected to your PC and if you want to use the command-line with ant, you need to specify the serial number of your target device to help ant (+ adb) to copy the apk to the correct location. tagdev should help you to do this.
- $ doc/bin/tagdev --list
- $ . doc/bin/tagdev --alias device1
- $ ant installr
And again - sorry dear Windows user. Maybe Cygwin can help...
