Android changes for NDK developers

For a long time Android only warned when native code didn’t follow the rules. Starting with Lollipop, Android has been stepping up rule enforcement which each release. Now is a good time to go over some of the do’s and don’ts…

Android N with Android Development Patterns: Designing for Multi-Window

Android Development Patterns is back with all the videos you could want about #AndroidN starting with ‘Designing for Multi-Window’ - a look into what special considerations go into building a great multi-window experience.

From the basics of building a responsive UI, some of the unique configurations found in split-screen multi-window, how multi-window works with your task stack and other apps, as well as how to make sure each configuration change is as seamless as possible, you’ll be well prepared after finishing the video and reading the associated blog post: https://goo.gl/8op7zR

So watch the video, check out the sample (https://github.com/googlesamples/android-MultiWindowPlayground), but always continue to #BuildBetterApps

See this video and many others in the full #AndroidN playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi5R0gq9tdA&index=2&list=PLWz5rJ2EKKc9tH0dRV1_HmQBXe_-qFQPl

+Ian Lake "the expectation is that developers handle split-screen and freeform exactly the same" -- users may disagree with you.

"If you have work that is a logical continuation of your task, you should continue to have that as part of your task (and hence, window)" -- again, users may disagree with you. Freeform multi-window does not have to exactly match the WIMP model that Windows and macOS users are used to, but the closer it gets, the fewer support issues developers will face.

"Do you have specific design configurations (aspect ratios, etc) that you don't see covered through testing split-screen multi-window?" -- everything needs to be re-tested on freeform multi-window. We won't know if there are design configurations that are an issue until we actually see how things work. That's why we test things. This isn't a question of known unknowns; it's a question of unknown unknowns.

Outside of a few sentences in documentation and random Medium posts, we have zero official information about freeform multi-window. The fact that we lack information is typical. And, we'll hack solutions around that lack of information as best we can, as we do with everything else. And I'm not surprised by the lack of freeform multi-window mode on Google devices. However, one would think that it would be in Google's interest for there to be some official testing solution for freeform multi-window before major manufacturers start shipping freeform multi-window devices.

The Google Awareness API is available to all developers through Google Play services!

The new Google Awareness APIs enable your apps to intelligently react to user context using 7 different types of context—including location, weather, user activity, and nearby beacons. Using snapshots and fences, your app can better understand your users’ current situations, and use this information to provide optimized and customized experiences with minimal impact on system resources.

3D CONTROLLER- an app that detects your device's orientation in 3D space and makes it accessible through API #AndroidExperiments
This Android Experiment turns your phone into a 3D controller. It detects the device's orientation in 3D space (where it's pointing and how it's rotated) and makes that information accessible through a simple API. In this app you will find 3 demos that utilize this API. The first applies your device's orientation to a 3D model. The second shows the wide range of orientations the API can detect and the third turns your device into a laser pointer...
