Kinda shocked no icon packs have night mode backs or alternative night mode icons.

With the right code you could easily have 2 packs in one...

RecyclerView is boss

If you create an Abstract BaseViewHolder with View[](_views()) and ButterKnife.Action<View>(_action()) overrides.

Then create an Adapter that runs ButterKnife.apply(holder._views(), holder._action()); within its onBindViewHolder().

Switch each holders view ids within their _action()...apply().

You get a pretty boss setup.

+Thebear Koss​ I'd highly doubt that. I'm in no position to teach anyone.

+Anas Khan​ I may consider signing up to get in, then going and just pretend to be part of the class. Lol

I love knowing that all my back and menu presses will work, no matter the device, hardware, software or OS...

That is till AppCompat breaks it all again.

Thats likely. Lost track of the number of horrible things I've seen in Samsung's code. Lenovo are another good one for that. Static field called "mAppContext" that actually holds the Activity (causing a leak obviously), and the only time they ever use it is to call 'mAppContext.getApplicationContext()'. Fucking noobs lol.

Mobile Strike is everything that's wrong with the mobile game section.

They pour millions into promotion and a probable few thousand towards building a horrible clone game that then robs people thru IAPs.

And +Google​ does nothing to stop it, they actually encourage it...

Is anyone using the latest Android Studio and Butter Knife getting errors for 'Bind'?

I've cleaned, rebuilt and all of the above but its like it just disappeared from butterknife. All other annotations and methods are still there and working.

I did, that's why I said I didn't see it even though I read it lol.

Went to github and SO and google etc... I was obviously not that focused on it is all, I am doing a few things at the same time.

I don't hate the hustle, reading and writing smali to crack apps takes some serious skill when done right.

It's why Google and so many others hire them all the time.

High horses are so easy to mount; but what a fall.

Utility for intercepting onkey(mainly menu) presses for App Compat.
 
In reference to my last post, I found this a little while ago. I've used it ever since, it works perfectly in every situation and compat version so far

The answer says the issue is fixed in AppCompat, but it is not. This utility is still needed.

The one Google app that could seriously use a launch screen, is one of the rare Google apps that has no launch screen. Google Play.

+Christoph Laier​ damn, not a single app on my phone loads instantly for me. But that's why launch screens are so good, they take no extra time, so for the small percent like you, won't even notice.

But for me its like a full 5 seconds of white, choppy list builds and wonky loading. I mean my phone is old(sgs3) but +Adrián Mouly​ on a nexus 5 sees white too. So I'd say it'd be worth it.
