I want to experiement with android, but I can't think of anything useful to do

I'd like to play around with the GPS, such as obtaining the users co-ordinates and somehow doing something with this

Any ideas on what I can try? I'll write up a tutorial on any good idea, and give full credits/linkbacks to that person ;)

(ps. dont you just hate it when you want to code, but don't know where to start? :P )

I believe you want a create simple app...

Start with a small app which explores your college or school.

GPS/Maps for location
Phone Book for Enquiries/Administration/Helpline
Study Groups/Clubs etc
RSS Feed for news at school.

There could be a lot of better ideas... Wait for them
