Just a quick question on Web Services...

When consuming WS, what is the best way to parse/consume the returning XML. Does Android have some native calls to do this?

If it is coming back through SOAP, there is the project. If not SOAP, you would have to post a bit more information.

If it's not SOAP, then Android has DOM and SAX built in, and -starting with Android 2.2- XPath.
