Best practices for coding on Android

Hi Jeff,

I was wondering if you have mentioned something like the "best practices for coding on Android" in the book. When I started to code for Android, the first roadblock was the proper use of collections and threads.

For a semi-proficient java programmer, taking into account the limitations of the underlying platform is a challenge in the start. I am still struggling with the performance of my application as it is data intensive. I tried using a REST web service instead of a SOAP service but the results did not improve much.

Can you suggest some points that we can keep in mind while coding so as to improve performance?

The Android official documentation has a Best practices section you might want to read (if not already).
