How to show a balloon above a marker in a MapActivity? Isn't there a widget?

I dont get the point, why I have to code so much for it. Like, I dont want to care about...

  • the position of the balloon (I just want to assign a geopoint)
  • the layout of a basic balloon (Later on I might want to implement a xml based layout)
  • the number of shown balloons (only display one at a time)
  • the open/close behaviour of the balloon (close, when an other bollon is tabbed)


Solved it! See my answer below...


Here is the "the missing widget"...

Why is seq(x) so much slower than 1:length(x)?


I recently answered a question pertaining to for loops. Upon testing my code's speed, I noticed that the use of seq() as opposed to : in the for loop slowed the speed down considerably.
