Admins, please take a look at this!

+Edwin Khodabakchian Please please take a look at this concept! A little more colors and use of images could really make the app+website pop! :)

#androidDev , These days, motivated by this concept [0], I have implemented an example that reveals a circular animation starting from a fab while moving with a curved motion.

For the curve implementation I get the knowledge of +Chet Haase, he wrote and implemented a few years ago a post and a sample about how to implement curved and non curved motion animations on android, must read! [2]

+Jorge J. Barroso also contributed with some tips :) thanks for that :D

The sample project is available on Github and ready to download :) [3]

+The Verge gives the Apple Watch a score of 7

And here come the Apple Watch reviews. The Verge, often referred to iVerge by Android faithfuls, has given the Apple Watch a score of 7. However, throughout the review, Nilay Patel criticizes the Apple Watch again and again, yet still believes it's the best smartwatch that you can buy - even though his publication gave the Moto 360 a score of 8.1.

the Apple Watch, as I reviewed it for the past week and a half, is kind of slow. There’s no getting around it, no way to talk about all of its interface ideas and obvious potential and hints of genius without noting that sometimes it stutters loading notifications. Sometimes pulling location information and data from your iPhone over Bluetooth and WiFi takes a long time. Sometimes apps take forever to load, and sometimes third-party apps never really load at all. Sometimes it’s just unresponsive for a few seconds while it thinks and then it comes back.

Apple Watch with leather loop band weighs 2.9 ounces, which is more than my plastic Nixon’s 1.7 ounces or the 1.8-ounce Moto 360, but much less than my five-ounce Baume and Mercier. All in all, the Apple Watch isn’t light enough to fade away, but it’s also not so heavy that it’s a distraction.

the watch felt underpowered, I found that the screen lit up a couple of ticks too slowly: I’d raise my wrist, wait a beat, and then the screen would turn on. This sounds like a minor quibble, but in the context of a watch you’re glancing at dozens of times a day, it’s quickly distracting. Other smartwatches like the Pebble and the LG G Watch R simply leave their screens on all the time; having a screen that constantly flips on and off is definitely behind the curve.

Siri on the Watch suffers from the same performance-related issues as everything else that requires a data connection to your phone and can be a little slow to respond. It’s also extremely susceptible to background noise

it’s disappointing to see the Watch struggle with performance. What good is a watch that makes you wait? Rendering notifications can slow everything down to a crawl. Buttons can take a couple taps to register.
And I found that the heart rate sensor struggled during my workouts, especially when I was really sweaty; it consistently measured about half my correct heart rate instead of my full 148bpm.
By the end of each day, I was hyper-aware of how low the Apple Watch battery had gotten. After one particularly heavy day of use, I hit 10 percent battery at 7pm, triggering a wave of anxiety. But most days were actually fine. Apple had a big challenge getting a tiny computer like this to last a day, and it succeeded — even if that success seemingly comes at the expense of performance.

Even after all of the above, he still believes:
There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today.

This is a well written review. The Apple Watch is sure going to set a bar for the Wearable industry. And it seems that bar has been set pretty low.

+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...

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 :)

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 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 :)
