Default Thanks for the book Reto - My input

Your book is proving to be very educational to me Reto, thanks.

Small spelling mistake mention; on page 155 the following code:
...
String quakeText = "Mangitude " + selectedQuake.getMagnitude() + "\n"
+ selectedQuake.getDetails() + "\n" +
...

For my tests I replaced it with:
...
String quakeText = "Magnitude " + ...
...

Kindest regards,
Pieter

Thanks Peter, I'm really glad you're finding it useful. It so happens that I'm a c# developer by day too, so I had a lot of fun playing with and learning a whole new technology.
