Beginning Android Development

I started learning Android Development a couple weeks back. I began by downloading necessary components:

The few tutorials that I tried were frustrating because of compatibility issues between versions. I purchased the Kindle book, "Android Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide". I'm through 4 1/2 chapters so far and it is much better. I'll begin posting again to document any handy tips for Android development.
