The problem with Stackoverflow, IMVHO, is that it is a QA site, not a discussion place. You ask something, someone replies. Hadrly I found even a simple thread discussing different ways to do something. Plus, I find it unusable for a casual visitor. You visit it if you have a question, search for it, maybe post a request. But it is hard to browse through a topic, or just read some messages to discover things you didn't even think where possible. This list has the right amount of traffic for casual reading during work pauses. Android-developers is way too big (1000 messages a day? I end up marking them all as read) As for searching info, I prefer Google to Stackoverflow.

Thanks to you and the others who bothered to help us newbies. I too will continue to "read" android-developers and see how it goes. As for stackoverflow, maybe google will find it sometimes. :) Bye. -- Alessandro Pellizzari -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Beginners" g... -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Beginners" group.
