Tuning Android Applications Version 0.4 Available

Tuning Android Applications Version 0.4 is now available for subscribers.

This is a fairly small update — some material I needed for an upcoming conference presentation that I wanted to get out the door before being attacked by a rather large ice cream sandwich.

It adds some coverage of measuring power consumption, notably the Qualcomm MDP with Trepn and PowerTutor. Conversely, I have removed the buggy Lua sample from the NDK chapter.

If you have questions regarding the use of the sample code, please post a question on StackOverflow tagged with commonsware and android. Be sure to indicate what book example you are having issues with, and be sure to include source code and stack traces if you are encountering crashes.
