What libraries do you guys recommend for handling API23 permissions? I'm refactoring our framework today and updating to the latest SDK, but there are seemingly dozens of these libraries out there now.

What do you guys use? Thanks in advance for any replies.

Force Touch For Android
So, the media is making a big deal about Apple's Force Touch and the possibility of the iPhone6S supporting it. This has been on Android for a long time.

TouchEvent.getPressure() returns a value which can be used by an application. Here's a pressure sensitive app I created for Android. Just press the screen with varying degrees of pressure and it will tell you what it saw immediately, then wait for the next event.

App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.casual_dev.forcetouch
Android API: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/MotionEvent.html#getPressure%28%29

Hah, what a joke. Fuck CyanogenMod, their shitty business practises and their increasingly bloated OS.

Exceptional pizzas, easily the best in London. Also very affordable, perhaps shockingly so. Very impressed.

Pretty good, quite often visit for lunch. Staff seems to change daily though and the quality of their work isn't always consistent. Very tasty though.

Lovely setting and definitely a unique place, but the bar was one of the most needlessly expensive I've ever been to. The inside section of the garden with the main bar is also deeply uninspiring compared to outside and feels like an empty swimming pool.

Beautiful pub with helpful staff, a wonderful beer garden and good food. Good selection of drinks and staff that are happy to recommend cocktails/wine if you're unsure what you want. Must find an excuse to visit again!
