When you're about to sell or give away your old Android phone to upgrade to a newer, better one, the first thing you do (aside from finding a buyer/taker) is to

With the Android M release almost upon us, we stop to consider the real impact of an Android update that will be missing the cosmetic changes introduced in Lollipop.

The latest Wear update has a bunch of great new features[1], however you may not have noticed we also released an update to the Wearable UI library (v1.2.0). Outside of some good old bug fixes, this version also brings some new UI widgets, such as ActionPage[3] - a full screen circular button with text below it (basically a FAB for Wear).

The nice thing about this widget, is it handles screen shape for you (the button is centered on round device and placed slightly higher on square devices) and it also includes an ActionLabel[4] which automatically adjusts font size to fit text into a defined space.

Using this button helps the actions in your Wearable app to look and feel like actions from the system or other apps - including the refreshed Material styling like ripple touch feedback based on easily customizable primary and accent colors.

It's really simple to use, but if you want an example, the XYZTouristAttractions code sample[5] has been updated to use it[6].

An 18th-century Mansion in England hosted an unlikely meeting of spy chiefs from seven countries and representatives from tech giants last week. According to The Intercept, the meeting at Ditchley Park was held to discuss the topic of government surveillance and was an opportunity for the countries to discuss the reluctance of Apple and Google to allow access to their confidential servers. The three day conference was attended by spy chiefs fr...

In the converged world of Unity-8, applications will work on small mobile screens, tablets and desktop monitors (with a mouse and keyboard attached) as if by magic. To achieve this transformation for your own app with little to no extra work required when considering the UI, simply design using grid units for a few predetermined virtual screen targets. Combined with Ubuntu off-the-shelf UI components built with convergence in mind, most of the ha...
