This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
So on iPhone UITableView, it is very easy to add a header, it is already there. And it automatically, will have a back button when you nest into the table, as well as a title, and easy as setting one property to true to get the "Add New" button on the right at the top.
I want that similar UI in Android, and I have gotten my List and ListActivity all working with displaying the data in the table, but I had to just add a search text on the top, then my own two buttons below that, then the list to get something similar, but I can't get the back button.
I think that even in Android this should be simple, but I have found in many places that it is never simple and you have to jump through hoops to get it to work.
Any suggestions, recommendations. I mean maybe I should look at a totally different UI approach because Android is different.
