MJD8WF: it's much faster & easier for everyone for you to do it right rather than do it over. Including apps that don't get it right the first time get 2nd priority as for those then we must stop & explain what all to fix and review again before we approve.
MJZ9AD: Notice question MFTRef is 2 sub-questions which then both need full & accurate answers.
MJZ9JF: Answer in via doing quote: (1) ... (2) ...
MJZ9K3: Some typical good answers for each part include:
MJZ9L6: "(2) See Intro" (where that gives this answer)
MJZBAA: "(2)I liked Android ..so got my 1st Android(&4a mere $25/mo w/unlimited 3G data+sms:Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept smartphone -deal!) so then searched for nearby Meetup group to learn about Android this was by far the the largest one"
