import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;

import android.view.ListView;

public class GameListActivity extends ListActivity {

    public String[] mGames = {
        "Age of Empires",

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, mGames);

  protected void onListItemClick(ListView l, View v, int position, long id){

    // This is a helper method to tally votes on a back-end system
    public void sendVote(String game) {

in the onListItemClick method you get a variable of what position the item is that you clicked. We use this variable to select the right game from the String array.
