How do you test with a device?

I was able to connect to the preview emulator instance using the Android Wear Preview apk, but the Preview apk doesn't appear to work with the new Wear emulator. 

Any help? Its stuck on "connecting via TCP" even when plugged in with the appropriate commands (adb -d forward tcp:5601 tcp:5601)

How should I reduce frame skip when instantiating a dialog fragment?

How does one persist a receiver app connection even when the application is "swiped" from history? I'm unsure of the lifecycle changes going on during the time.

Strange error when developing Chromecast application - 


04-20 13:07:16.742    7853-7853/com.***.***** A/libc﹕ heap corruption detected by dlmalloc
04-20 13:07:16.742    7853-7853/com.***.***** A/libc﹕ Fatal signal 6 (SIGABRT) at 0x00001ead (code=-6), thread 7853 (harya.*)

(Application name redacted). 

This occurs (only sometimes!) while launching a custom receiver. Other times it works perfectly. 

Also, when re-initializing the CastDevice from the routeInfo bundle, sometimes the CastDevice is null. I can't determine when or how, though.

Oh SignalR..how you disgust me. 

What works works though. And significantly more simple than sockets. 

It just takes a while to wrap your head around.

I'm not sure if I'm going crazy or what, but Android Studio 0.8.0 generates a Mobile + Wear app, but subclasses WatchActivity for the MainActivity of the watch itself. That would be all fine and dandy, but the class does not exist. 

What are we supposed to do? Can't find anything on it.

I know its awful practice, but is it possible to prevent the user from "swiping away" a certain activity?

How exactly is the default route determined?

+Vic Gundotra is now my favorite Googler. 
 
My favorite track right now. It's a powerful reminder that if you have a passion for something, just pursue it. You'll never know how good you can be unless you just go out and try. 

Giorgio did. And look how it turned it out for him!
