Create an About Screen for your app, it's easy using this new library!
 
This is my first Android Library, and I'm not sure whether it counts as promotion (remove it if it is) but I think it'll come in handy for developers that want to easily create an about screen.

There doesn't seem to be many similar libraries on GitHub so hopefully this one is appreciated. Cheers, and Merry Christmas!

Using a database in your app? Check out this great article on REALM databases

Thanks to +Dmitry Pavlov for sharing
 
Realm Is the Best Android Database Solution

Since the inception of the platform, Android developers have had pretty much only one option for a database: SQLite. Although feature-rich and powerful, it wasn’t quite what Android app developers needed. Realm, a modern, efficient database solution for mobile platforms, turned out to be an amazing replacement for SQLite on Android.

In this article, Toptal Software Engineer Mateus Gondim Romão Batista explains why you should use Realm for your next Android application.

Realm sounds great, but they thought of sitting through a 42 minute video is just too much =)

Master the Activity LifeCycle for crash-resistant apps

Check out this great article on the Activity LifeCycle
 
I wrote an article on dealing with the Android life cycle.

My goal was to write it as a 'this is one way that just works' article that you can refer to when someone asks for way to make sure the state of the (complex) activity is preserved during things like orientation changes.

Let me know what you think.

I’d like to share my blueprint for dealing with one of the fundamental challenges when developing for Android once and for all.

Check out this easy IntentService tutorial showing how to do background work so you app does not hang
 
Easy beginner's tutorial on how to use an IntentService to do work in the background so that your user can continue to use your app without having to wait for the work to complete. Go check it out now!

You should do time consuming work, like downloading files, on a separate thread.

This will free up the main thread so your user can carry on using the app.

IntentServices are the preferred way for doing long running background operations.
