Hi all, I am very excited as I am very close to finish my first Android Application project.
From the past few days I have been working on it and truly this project has helped me learn a variety of stuffs including using various controls, external libraries, animations & my favorite Maps in android application. Personally I feel Map makes any application much smarter.
This application I have been developing uses Map to point users current location and it also allows to drag and drop the pin to any other location on the map and get address details for the position.
I love the way Drag & Drop Pin feature works on apple products (IPhone, IPod & IPad), specially the bouncy feeling it has and I wanted my application to have the same feel, but my bad, after searching for sometime on google I found that Google has not provided similar inbuilt feature for Android [I wonder why?], see the article here.
But as said in IT industry if client want it, it has to happen 😉 so after some more search I found another article that mentioned about a sample project which shows similar feature, see the article here. So I used the sample project and achieved the desired result. Though it does not have the same bouncy feel but it look good and satisfies the requirement.
I have created a sample Android project for everyone who may have similar requirement after now and also attached the source code for Android project here below.
