    So sorry about the url having spaces in between because Youtube don't allow me to place url or anything related to Google Play url.. they are somehow hidden by Youtube 🙁 As such this is a shortened url to avoid this issue. Will greatly appreciate if i could trouble you to remove the spaces to access this app from google play store.

    greatly appreciate !

  3. Hi i am to using eclipse and github. Your tutorial is v.helpful so far, but now I am trying to build and run eclipse.paho.client.mqttv3 project. it is run as maven build, which asks to specify goals. what kind of goals are these? any examples.

  4. Question:  I imported the samples folder, added the jar to the build path, and in the HomeActivity package every file has R issues(except the last one, UIApplication).  I imported R for all the files and now the xml part is underlined – whether or not there is an xml file available.  Any ideas?
