Object Serialization in Android

For my current project I wanted to create a persistent list of applications to be called later. I didn't want to use SharedPreferences because the data is stored as key value pairs.
Serialization can work with any object into a file provided it extends Serializeable. This is very useful for saving custom objects to call later.

Bedtime Calculator

Just put a new app on the market. It's pretty simple and still needs more features but it's good for now.

A Little Known Library: Prowser

In the development of my next Android app, a mobile client for a web forum, I was looking for a library to make HTTP requests. The most agreed upon library to use was Apache's HTTPClient. Which this can get the job done, it was too much for me and sought something easier. Then I came across Prowser. The description drew me in immediately.
