Cool, thank you. Sounds like a no brainer then. Enjoy!

What I've been working on...
A site that started as a hackathon project has turned into a side business that helps landlords find and vet potential tenants.

I thought Hangouts was going to replace my SMS app. Has that not happened yet or is it a 4.4 feature?

I've had it for a long time with my Galaxy Nexus and now with my Moto X

Could we really see the Nexus 5 this week? I'm doubtful, and even if we do even more doubtful that it will be available on Verizon.

And they'll bloatware it up and cripple it in some way if they do get it like they did with my Gnex.

Am I the only person who doesn't think a new Nexus phone is coming this year?

I think there will be a new Nexus.... but it won't be a huge bump. Not needed. My year old galaxy nexus is already better than the unreleased iPhone 5.

The initial release for MFL Fantasy Football 2014 is available now in Google Play!

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.locomolabs.mfl

I've completely redesigned and rebuilt my app for 2014 based on the years of feedback and suggestions received by you.  Download it and give it a go!

No, I don't believe that's going to be doable.  I need to double check, but via the MFL API it's only been for live "traditional" drafts.  I'll keep an eye on new offerings from their API around drafting.

I have a question regarding Retrofit.  I use it in many of my personal apps and love it's simplicity.  At work, it was decided that we needed to roll our own REST client.  The biggest reason for that was because of how screen orientation would tear down activities and any API call that was in transit wouldn't come back successfully.  This I/O talk from 2010 describes the issue and how to solve it (http://www.google.com/events/io/2010/sessions/developing-RESTful-android-apps.html).  Personally, I didn't think this was an issue that necessitated rolling our own REST client, but hey, nobody else agreed.

So, I'm curious, does Retrofit handle this scenario?  I'm just looking for a reason to scrap our REST client for something easier to use that benefits from being open source.

I've used the service approach for a lot of apps, and I've found that it works perfectly in many cases, and it is a ton better than just using asynctask.

I agree there is a bit of overhead especially when setting it up for the first time.

There is a nice little library that implements this pattern in a generic way and also saves you from a big part of the overhead https://github.com/foxykeep/DataDroid

So annoyed that Google and Verizon can't work together.  Time to go back to iPhone?

What's your favorite stock app for Android?  Mostly just to get a quick look at current prices and history.
