Time for another #CompressorHead   with +Colt McAnlis: arithmetic compression with a (low odor) marker!
 
New Compressor Head: Shining light on arithmetic compression

In episode 5 of Compressor Head, +Colt McAnlis sheds light on the dark mysteries of arithmetic compression. Colt walks us through the process of the algorithm, encoding and decoding using nothing but a low-odor dry-erase marker he found in Google’s garage. Also he has a lava lamp.

Today in Android Performance Patterns: Memory Performance 101

Just because Java is a managed memory environment doesn’t mean that it’s free from performance problems. Incorrectly handling the memory in your Android application could lead to a horde of performance issues. Luckily, +Colt McAnlis has a nice overview of the problem space, and some tips to help you get going. Check it out, before you forget (get it? a memory joke….oh nevermind...)

Google Play services 7.0 - Places Everyone!

We're now rolling out a new version of Google Play services to Android devices worldwide. This update brings the latest and greatest APIs from Google including a new Location Settings Dialog and new Places API:

Location Settings Dialog - We’re making it easy to check for optimal location settings and offer a one touch control for users to change their settings with the Location Settings Dialog.

Places API - Brand new to Google Play Services is the Places API, giving you access to all of the places and business details through the Place Picker dialog or through your own UI using the getCurrentPlace() API and our autocomplete search results.

Google Fit - Fit is slimming down their memory usage and splitting the Fitness.API into multiple separate APIs as well as added support for body fat percentage and sleep data.

Google Play Games - Announced at GDC (http://goo.gl/6ewnwr), this release adds the Nearby Connections API, allowing games to seamlessly connect smartphones and tablets as second-screen controls to the game running on your TV.

App Indexing - We’ve simplified the App Indexing API to make it even easier to get your app into Google Search results.

You'll be able to get started with the new APIs as soon as the Google Play services rollout is complete -- a process we expect to take several days. We'll then release the updated Google Play services SDK and you'll be able to download it through the Android SDK manager. Watch for more information coming soon.

Check out the post below for details.

What was the first Android app you ever built? #TBT  

Have a link or screenshot? Include it in your comment!

+Ian Lake's first Android app was built with 3 other students for a class project in November 2010. The WhenToLeave App combined your Google Calendar with traffic data from Google Maps to tell you when you need to leave for your next appointment, sending you a notification at just the right time. 

Check out the demo video: http://goo.gl/aEYRFa

My first app was a simple calculator for calculating compound interest. Never put it on the Play store, but I learned a lot from it.

We announced that we will begin to use information from indexed apps as a factor in ranking. See the post below for more details, and check out the video from +Jarek Wilkiewicz to learn more about how you can get your app content surfaced in search results.
 
App deep link quality now used as a ranking signal

Yesterday, as part of our efforts to make your app content as accessible from Search as your site content, we announced that we will begin to use information from indexed apps as a factor in ranking (http://goo.gl/St6dRE). As a result, we will now surface content from indexed apps more prominently in search.

This ranking change is the next step in giving users better results on their mobile device. For you as a site owner or app developer, it’s a chance to engage them straight from the search results. 

Be sure to check out g.co/appindexing and watch the video below with +Jarek Wilkiewicz to learn more about how you can get your app content surfaced in search results.

The new Compressor Head episode is finally here!

We know you've been waiting on pins and needles for the next episode of Compressor Head, and it's finally here! +Colt McAnlis returns as the algorithm obsessed geek who loves to share his knowledge with the programmers of the world. He’s joined by fellow Googler Mike Burrows, co-inventor of the Burrows-Wheeler transform, an almost magical algorithm that will turn your head inside out.  

Stay tuned to the Google Developers YouTube channel (youtube.com/googledevelopers) for the soon to be released episodes 5 and 6, coming your way Friday mornings from the Googleplex in Mountain View CA.
