In setting up the Magento Store Demo app, incorrect URLs and/or bad App Ids just give an “UnknownError” it would help to properly handle the error and give the user a “Host not Found”, “File not Found”, and “Invalid App Id”.

Yeah, I agree with him. To show unknown error does not help user know how to deal with the error.

If you could suggest any thing to the use, it will be much better. However, I’m not sure that it is so difficult to develop that or not.

When the application didn’t receive the xml response data, the application will not know what is the issue related to. The issue can be related to variety of reasons: such as incorrect url, wrong application code, the url cannot be accessible from outside of network and etc. The application cannot point out what is the reason of failure in loading the application. We rely on users to enter the correct information to use our preview app.
First, check the application url in the browser: http://yoursite.com/xmlconnect/configuration/index/app_code/your_code. If you can see the correct xml data, then in iPhone put the application url as http://yoursite.com/xmlconnect (without slash at the end) and application code as your_code. In Android, put the application url as http://yoursite.com (without slash at the end) and application code as your_code

Android-based phones, however, were reported to be buggy and battery hogging. Other users complain about annoying error messages from applications that frequently crash. But Google claims this problem will be solved by simply upgrading to the latest version of android.iPhone 5 Release Date

I am also agree with you all. Whether you said \"unknown error\”, you can give the messages related to the errors so user can easily deal with your error and solve the error.

Yeah, I also agree with all the users and it is one of the best way to display the better error message in android app. You need to give related Error message so users can easily solve the Error instead of giving common messages.
