goo.gl short links now function as a single link you can use to all your content--whether that content is in your Android app, iOS app, or website. Once you’ve taken the necessary steps to set up App Indexing for Android and iOS (g.co/AppIndexing), goo.gl URLs will send users straight to the right page in your app if they have it installed, and everyone else to your website. This will provide additional opportunities for your app users to re-engage with your app.

To learn more about deep linking from goo.gl links, check out our blog post.

Saw the 5.0.2 OTA for my #nexus9  this morning, and tried to apply the update. Now, the device is stuck in a boot loop (device is locked, unrooted and stock). This is my 7th Nexus device and is BY FAR, the worst +Nexus device I have owned and likely the worst #Android device I have owned. Here are the problems I have faced:

* Slow OS updates (still waiting on 5.1.x)
* Questionable build quality
* Screen burn-in
* Light Bleed
* Completely laggy experience (bordering on unusable)
* Boot loop when applying an OTA

Did I mention it was also an expensive device to begin with? Sorry #Google  and +HTC, but the Nexus 9 is an #epicfail

If it makes you feel any better, this was just announced: https://twitter.com/googlenexus/status/596343795140194304?s=09

I agree though, Google really needed to do better with the N9.

Took almost to time to migrate from ActionBarActivity to AppCompatActivity. No major issues :)

Love the new Material Dialog backport as well in the latest #SupportLibrary update.  Gotta love #AppCompat!

”Unit Test Support in Gradle, the new Android Testing Support Library 0.2, Espresso 2.1, JUnit4…everyone talks of testing in 2015 ! We will review what is new and what is coming from Google. Happy Testing!”

Following the release of the Android testing support library 0.2 and Espresso-Intents yesterday[0], i want to share the slides for my "What’s new in Android Testing"[1] talk, which i gave at +Droidcon Italy.

It was such an amazing event with so many passionate developers and amazing sessions! Hope to see all of you again very soon! Enjoy and keep on testing.

If you are in Madrid for +Droidcon Spain (June 23rd -25th)[2], please make sure you check out the talk from +Jose Alcérreca on “What’s new in Android Testing”.

New version of the Android Testing Support Library[0]

The release includes two major additions:
Espresso-Intents[1]: a Mockito-like API that enables hermetic inter-activity testing by allowing test authors to verify and stub outgoing intents.
Test Rules[2]: a set of Junit4 rules that replace ancient framework APIs like ActivityInstrumentationTestCase2 and ServiceTestCase.

All samples have been updated and a set of Espresso-Intents samples[3] has been added to help you get started.

Of course, we have also squashed some reported bugs and addressed minor feature requests from android-test-kit[4]. See release notes[5] and javadoc[6] for details.

Happy testing from the ATSL team +Valera Zakharov +Nick Korostelev +Jose Alcérreca and +Stephan Linzner

This doesn't really concern the performance of your application at runtime, but it does improve the performance when building your Android projects. Hope it will be of help to some of you. :)

As I continue to write/maintain parceling code, I am reminded of http://parceler.org/. Anyone tried this library? I am thinking of giving it a spin.

We just updated our Espresso Cheat Sheet to 2.1[0][1]. In this version we added the new entry points intended(Matcher)/intending(Matcher) and Matchers for Espresso-Intents. We also finally got around to add onData() to the cheatsheet, enjoy!

Android Support Library 22.1 - ActionBarActivity is dead, long live AppCompatActivity
You’d be surprised how much we can pack into a 0.1 update to the Android Support Library: revision 22.1 includes improvements to Support V4, AppCompat, Leanback, RecyclerView, Palette, and Renderscript.

Support V4 adds drawable tinting to all API4+ devices, the new ColorUtils class makes working with colors easier, and new interpolators have been added to make great animations.

AppCompat gets a remake as we deprecate ActionBarActivity for the new AppCompatActivity, now built on a AppCompatDelegate that can be used to add AppCompat functionality to any Activity. There’s also a new AppCompatDialog, support version of AlertDialog, improvements to widget tinting, and expanded android:theme support.

Leanback now includes a guided step functionality, making it easy to build a multiple step process that looks great on Android TV.

RecyclerView seeks to make life easier with a new SortedList data structure, making it easy to tie a changing set of data to a RecyclerView.Adapter.

Palette is now 6-8 times faster and has a new Builder pattern for constructing Palette instances.

Renderscript improved reliability and performance and adds additional script intrinsic operations, bringing new pre-defined operations to all API 8+ devices.

Check out everything that has been added in this release and download the updated Android Support Library via the Android SDK Manager.
