INCREASING MOTORCYCLE SAFETY - A custom hardware integration for motorcycles. #AndroidExperiments
After I had a serious motorcycle accident due to equipment failure, I set off to build a system that would notify me via audio and visual cues of potential dangers. My project is made up of an Android app and a piece of hardware the passively monitors data from my tire pressure sensors and ECUs and sends the over bluetooth to my Android Application. Since the CANBUS messages are undocumented I needed to reverse engineer them. I’ve also bui...

Scoped Directory Access in Android Nougat

Scoped Directory Access is new to Nougat and provides an alternative to the storage permissions with two important differences:
- It gives you access to only a specific directory - don’t request access to the entire primary storage if you only need the pictures directory!
- It gives read and write access to SD cards and USB attached storage!

Really nice way to handel the storage permission, but how can I check if a user did already grant access to a certain dircetory and how can I force the dialog to be shown again after the user denied twice?

Battery Historian scores you on battery-friendliness - reduce battery consumption for billions of users:
 
Reduce battery consumption for billions

Battery life is precious on low-cost phones and over intermittent power supplies. Today’s tip offers best practices to reduce battery consumption on Android and the Web for billions of users:

First, understand your app or site’s battery consumption using Battery Historian and Batterystats (walkthrough - https://goo.gl/M0Vqbl). Then, further conserve battery by reducing user actions required to access your content, such as detailed logins, long menus, or multiple sub-pages, to keep things lean.

On the Web and with native apps, you can usually reduce battery consumption by checking for and eliminating unused or duplicative network requests, content reflows, and limiting ‘expensive’ animations or sensor use. Periodic audits of those functionalities helps build a battery-efficient experience.

On Android, you can then use GcmNetworkManager to schedule all non-essential background activity for when the device is charging and is connected to an unmetered network.
This is the fifth of five weekly posts we’re sharing on how to build Android and Web products for billions of users. Check out our full lists of Web (https://goo.gl/SV83fI) and Android (d.android.com/billions) resources on building content for billions.

Any idea when the Nexus 6 will get it, or the images posted? It's been days already, still nothing, and no statement from Google "At All", not even one acknowledging Nexus 6 was not pushed out like the other. This is getting annoying!

Developing for Direct Boot on Android Nougat

For some apps that schedule alarms and receive messages, delivering timely notifications is critical. With Android Nougat, we’re introducing the option for apps to run before the user unlocks the device after a reboot, so your users will never miss that important alarm clock in the morning.

Read the blog post for all the details: http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2016/04/developing-for-direct-boot.html
