I've got no ideas, but this is the reason that I pretty much gave up on android as a platform for me: this activity should be simple. Instead accessing a db is difficult, and using a preloaded db results in larger apps.
Somehow it is easier to use a db in JAVAFREAKINGSCRIPT than in android. Jquery makes this so painless, so why does it have to be such a pain in the backside. This should be simple! Yes, some apps will require greater flexibility than the simple method would allow, but that doesn't mean that there shouldn't *BE* a simple method. Get it fixed!
