Tip: Try slowing down the animations on your phone!

I'm working on some animations and accidentally left my phone on "animator duration scale" 5x over the weekend. I was about to turn it off but decided to keep it on as an exercise in zen and to observe movement. I always perceived that my phone moved, but I've been surprised how detailed many system animations are! My favorites so far are the lock screen in pattern mode, everything in the Search app, and this Hangouts FAB animation.

In this codelab, you'll learn about ConstraintLayout—a new type of layout available in the Android Support repository built on top of a flexible constraint system. By the end of this codelab, you'll be able to play with the layout editor in Android Studio and build a relatively complex layout.

I did not expect this at all, though I'm curious to see if Sony has any involvement with the "Nexus" experience program
 
Today, we’re excited to announce that Sony will join the N Developer Preview family of supported devices with the Xperia™ Z3.

The Xperia™ Z3 joins Nexus 5X, 6, 6P, Nexus Player, the Pixel C tablet and General Mobile 4G (Android One) in giving you an early look at the next version of Android. Sony has been working closely with us to bring you the N Developer Preview on Xperia™ for early testing and development.

To get started, you can download the latest N Developer Preview from Sony (currently Developer Preview 2, available at the link below) and manually flash it to your device. You’ll then receive future Developer Preview updates over-the-air, direct from Sony.

We’re continuing to work toward giving you more options for early testing and development on N Developer Preview. Stay tuned!

Though the idea is not at all new its quite nice to see it included the Google Calendar with a clever video to advertise, now if only Google would update the web interface too.

Hey all,
Having many read articles and implemented myself various different application structures for use with Dagger I'm curious about the preferred implementation. In particular regarding sub-scoping components for different features, and component persistence.

Do most people prefer to go for the application/activity scopes or for feature based? and where to store the component if not using the application/activity style?

This is only rumour, but the idea has started gaining some traction, I'm not really sure what Google would want to obtain by doing this. The Nexus line is already a very strong brand and the hardware manufacturers generally build very reliable handsets.
Yet another "non-Nexus Google smartphone" rumor misses the point.

So now we have SMS Messenger, Hangouts, Allo and Duo, Google seem to be continuining their trend of application duplicity.
Today at I/O 2016, Google announced two new messaging and communication apps: Allo, a messaging app which hooks into your phone number, and Duo, a video ca... by Phil Oakley in Applications, Google, News

Google’s syncing notepad, Keep, added a few useful features today: a Chrome extension that lets you quickly send a link or selected text to a new note, sharing to Keep in Android, and hashtag labels to link notes together.

Awesome burger place where you order your food and drink from a console on the table, along with pouring your own beer from the taps on the table too. A little on the high end for prices but possibly one of the best burgers I've had in Berlin.

Really nice Irish bar, I went here to see one of the Euro 2016 games, the guys behind the bar are awesome and funny, very friendly. They only seemed to serve home made food, so quality stuff, no frozen food,

One of the few genuine authentic Irish bars in Barcelona, staff (also Irish) very friendly and funny, Beer quality is average for what you can generally find in an Irish bar, the decor is pretty cool and reflects the atmosphere very well.

I was here for the conference rooms, and had not stayed at one of the hotel rooms, with that said the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was outstanding.

I can't say much for the staff since I didn't have much reason to interact much, everything was made very easy and I had had no problem. The room was wonderful, obviously recently renovated with a wonderful shower. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. At first I had thought that the WiFi was costly, but be sure to ask, there is free WiFi provided.

Highly interesting and intriguing museum founded by Jaime Sabatés one of Picasso's childhood friends and secretary, with a sizeable donation of works from Picasso's widow. Entry cost is very reasonable and you can get a reduction if you are under 25, make sure to ask if the Temporary Exhibit is open as we purchased a full ticket only to find it was closed.
