Using Google Map Android API v2

I outlined how to build a Tab based interface with Swiping that included a Google MapFragment (in the form of SupportMapFragment from the Android Support library)

Turns out that there are a number of steps to get Google Maps API working for your app. The developer page here does a pretty good job of explaining how to set up the API.

Just two quick notes to augment what they said:

  1. keytool is in your jdk’s bin
  2. If you use multiple machines for development, you can use the same debug.keystore for all the machines. Preference -> Android -> Build -> Custom debug keystore
