Themes on API's 11 + : As an experiment I have tried switching a small app which was built against the the appcompat v7 libs to target API's 11 + so the appcompat lib is not needed. Obviously the packages and ActionBar handling change a little but the big problem I am finding is trying to reference the Theme.Holo (or any other) actionbar predefined themes which I am trying to use as parents for my themes.

Am I missing something or does this just not work?

Got it: I was missing the @android:style/ in the parent defn. I don't think this was present in the sample code I copied.

Thanks for your help

Photosphere makes a pretty good stab tho there are some weirds. Try looking up at the phone lines crossing against the sky just downhill, lol!

Disappointing but a fair reason, and good that they've explained it properly.

Yeeha! Just got the ICS update on my tablet. UI is much slicker.

Did some strange stuff with the battery consumption. 1st day it chewed through it and got v hot. Also hot when charging. Shut it down for a few mins last night & charged overnight. Now seems to have calmed down. Seen a few mentions of battery retraining.

I'm experimenting with writing an app just for API's 11 - 19 as this should not require the appcompat lib and can use the direct references to the ActionBar etc. This works fine unless I try to add a theme style - I can't find a predefined theme, such as Holo, to parent my theme from. Are these predefined themes provided by the lib?

Can anyone throw any light on this?

Nope, not really looked as it seems a bit too specific

Anyone any idea why the swiftksey keyboard doesnt provide predictions, and hence spelling corrections, on G+ entry?

Interesting little one isn't it - al least it works when you turn it round.

Samsung have said something about how they'd put a lot of work into optimising software for battery life, and will continue to do so.
