Creating the Interface

The MyContactList app requires four activities and four layouts to provide the functionality described in Chapter 2. The app will use Intents to switch between activities and pass data between these activities. Your first task in creating the MyContactsList app is to make sure you have access to the image resources provided with this book. You will need four image files. One image is the app icon (appicon.png) and the other three are used in the app for navigation (contactlisticon.png, settingsicon.png, mapicon.png). Every app needs a project, and MyContactList is not different. Your second task is to create a new project.
