Developing Android Applications using Eclipse

One of the issues you may have when installing an application, created, and signed, using Eclipse:

Parse Error – Problem Parsing Package

Things to check:

Are you using a compatible Android device?
You will have problems putting an app made with Android 4.0 on an Android 2.3.5 device.

Check the AndroidManifest.xml for theĀ  miniSdkVersion!
Lower it to “3” and try recreating the apk
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion=”3″ />

If these things are not the issue, try installing the apk on a different device – rule out the problem either being the device or the apk you are creating.
