Bucky..I observed a comment in Logcat while app was starting to load in to the emulator which reads like this "01-01 10:22:08.358    1398-1398/com.example.mohana.mynewproject I/Choreographer? Skipped 275 frames!  The application may be doing too much work on its main thread." Could this be because we are doing the gui and lot of other stuff on the Main activity??? Appreciate your comment in this regard.
