+Kevin Daniel​ look at these pics, look at the caption padding and the avatar being pushed up a little... There is a lot of small details like this all over the place, also the GPS place and like statuses some times gets mixed up with other photos in your stream :) you seem to have some kind of lifeguard that hates when people write about design misses like this so now I will make my own post for this :)

Please make it possible to change a icon to the default icon. Now when using a icon pack and I choose the default icon it will use the default from the pack but I want to use the apps own icon on some apps :)

LOLlipop design details are winning over some Apple users as well. 
The Design Details Podcast is coming! I'm excited to announce the Design Details Podcast is coming in early 2015! Each show will be a 30-60 minute conversation with design leaders in the community. Twenty-three guests have already accepted an invitation to chat, including Tim Van Damme (Dropbox) ...

I'm reading so many negative reviews over +Android Lollipop's Project Volta that I'm about to freak out. What did people expect, exactly? Suddenly a whole week of battery life? Did they even read the documentation

Project Volta has been made for developers, and it is basically a whole set of tools to emphasise the focus on battery life. We are given proper tools to analyze battery consumption of our apps (dumpsys + Battery Historian) and to reduce the impact on battery by properly scheduling jobs (JobScheduler API).

Once again, people need to way for app developers to actually USE these tools. When the top 100 apps will take advantage of those APIs, only then you will see some serious battery improvements. In the meantime, please avoid the whole "Android's battery life is still crap even though they made Project Volta" propaganda, because that's just not what it is for.

And yes, if you're wondering, Android's battery life is still crappy and inconsistent.

Please stop using the whole screen, just because we don't want that bottom thingy it wont disappear :) it is probably there for a good reason so we should as well design the faces as if it is there!

I'm fairly certain it's for sensors, I believe they said that in the official hangout

+Travis Bell Hi, is it possible to get the highest rated backdrop or poster without first having to call the image api, parse the response and then get the right image with the given url?

Would be nice to being able to get it with one request :) especially on phones...

Hi +Ali Rahimpour 

If you're not using our movie data methods then you'll mostly be on your own to build whatever workflow you need. The assumption all throughout the API is that you would be using our service for the data itself and if that was the case, you would find that every movie info call:

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/movie/131631?api_key=###&language=sv

Has both 'poster_path' and 'backdrop_path' fields which is all you need. For your case, you wouldn't need any extra API calls at all. These 2 fields are available on every single object (search results, featured list items, movie details, etc…)

If you're not using our data methods, how ever you're matching our IDs to their IDs, you'll then have to head off and get the images via the /images API method or just the regular movie method (linked above).

Whether you use the call I linked to above ^ or are using search results, like I said, these fields are available in all of these calls so the most you need to do is 1 API call to TMDb.

I will add that, most people in this case would create their own local web service that merges and caches the 2 web services together so that you can call a single source that is perfectly mapped to your schema in your Android app.

Hope that helps.

Please set the Hamburger menu as a action bar logo instead of drawer indicator :) then you wont get that animation when opening the drawer! Will you do a full material designed theme?

the hamburger icon shouldn't animate when opening the drawer :) set the icon with getActionBar().setLogo(icon) instead of set it as a drawer indicator :)

Thoughts on the Apple Watch
Beware, there's nothing positive listed here...

- Glossy hardware design with buttons looks outdated
- The UI is too black (?)
- It basically is a shrinked iPhone
- The pressure-aware screen is nice but the way it's used is bad UX
- The app drawer thing itself is bad UX
- Nothing about it's design made me go "wow"
- The design doesn't reflect iOS 8 design

I expected much more...
