Android app creation is broken in several ways!

      The experience of starting a new Android app is just really bad.

      When we use the bin/create script there is a lot of things missing :

      -> SplashScreen?!
      I just can't understand why this is lacking. It is an obvious need & everyone has to waste time figuring out how to make it work by themselves

      -> MacOSX is broken
      Either using latest Lion or any version with Macports + GNUTools (replacing deprecated versions bundled with OSX for licensing issues - common for most developers).

      -> The XML is missing required keys (targetSDKpath) & having invalid stuff inside it (xLargeScreen).

      -> Most files are badly indented. Does not respect the Google guidelines for JAVA.

      I've done most of the fixing myself:
      You can find this (work in progress) there :

      I'm quite disappointed on how you release a 2.0 without taking the hour needed to clean this mess. Instead a few hundred people will encounter the same issues & have a bad idea on Cordova/Phonegap.
