#AndroidDev #Hack You no longer need to remember what the latest version of a specific library is. Just make the most of Gradle and Android Studio to remember it for you!  http://blog.blundell-apps.com/use-the-latest-version-of-any-library-with-android-studio-gradle/

Yay, a feature I worked on! I've been wanting to do this for the last several years.

A few more quick bits of info:

* The system will only query the top ranked apps for targets.

* Only the top N targets will be shown. Right now N=8.

* The current developer preview build doesn't have the final ranking in place, it's still the same usage time-based sorting seen in Lollipop.

* If you want to know where to begin integrating this into your app, start at the docs for ChooserTargetService.

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.

Looking back through my musical archive and I am reminded…”life is too short, so love the one you got”. Thanks for the reminder Brad!

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.

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!
