I've just set up Eclipse to work with the Android SDK, however when I click 'run' and choose Android app, the app itself doesn't automatically appear, the default home screen displays instead. Any ideas?
Do you mean the emulator's home screen? If so, the emulator is probably locked and you have to drag the bar across the screen to unlock the screen. After you do that the app should show up. You should have to do this only once the first time you bring up the emulator - it should stay unlocked until you restart the emulator.
I unlock the screen, then it goes straight to the default home screen (with the google search box on it). I've tried using different versions of the API but it keeps doing the same thing. I've reinstalled the sdk, followed numerous tutorials, and can't understand what's going wrong. I'm a Netbeans programmer, but was told Eclipse was the best choice for developing apps
