There are some bugs you just can't see until the app is publicly available. This release fixes a bunch of those :)
 
Focus 1.0.1 is OUT NOW

The typical day-1 patch is out, fixing some little, but important things!

The apk is still not available from the Play Store, so while you wait you can get it from +APK Mirror instead:

If you enjoy Focus leave us a rating and written feedback on the Play Store :)

Thanks!

+Josh Gray When you add a song to "new playlist," there's a toggle at the bottom of the dialog to make the playlist public. Then once you open the playlist hit share and it will give you a link to post.
+Jonathon Salm I don't, but maybe I should!

From some very rough sketches to a great collaboration with its very own listing on the Play Store - I'm really excited for Focus to be available publicly, and can't wait to get through more of the cool stuff we have planned :)
 
Focus 1.0 is OUT NOW

It's been an incredible journey since me and +Liam Spradlin started this project. We set to create the best gallery for Android, providing the best user experience with the best design inspired by Material.

I speak for myself, but I'm sure for +Liam Spradlin too, we're incredibly proud of this first production version. I can finally use a gallery that doesn't suck and I can organize my media files exactly like I want to - and I don't need to be signed in to a cloud service to do so.

We're also incredibly happy about the features we were able to cram in. I can't wait for you to try them all and have a pleasant experience.

There's obviously much more to come and I look forward to integrate Google Photos support for Focus 1.1 and much more!

A special thanks to all the testers that provided not only valuable feedback, but bug reports!

Time to download Focus and enjoy it!

+Spencer Shaw I think the value in the build.prop probably comes from the fact that Nexus 5 falls into the xxhdpi bucket which is typically thought of as 480dpi.

Hey it's me! Many thanks to +JR Raphael for inviting me to be a part of the series! :)
 
A new "How I use Android" profile -- featuring app designer and Android blogger +Liam Spradlin!

Liam's an interesting guy with a great eye for design. You probably know him from +Android Police, but he's also given visual overhauls to apps like Nova Launcher and Today Calendar.

Here, a peek inside his own personal Android setup -- including his carefully crafted home screens:
He designs Android apps you love and writes Android blogs you read -- so how does Liam Spradlin use Android in his own life?

Congratulation Liam. „I do this because I like to have a symmetrical set of dots above the dock“ <- this is how you identify the designer :o)

Now that the original #nowplaying  playlist is up to 80 songs and 6+ hours, is it time to make a new one? Anybody out there still subscribed?

Very happy to see people enjoying the app so far, and leaving constructive feedback if they don't. As with any project, it feels like some of the coolest stuff is yet ahead. Now focusing on the future :)
 
Me and +Liam Spradlin are so happy about releasing Focus. The response has been absolutely stunning and we already have so many new ideas to implement based on your feedback.

Obviously a version 1.0 has some bugs (which software doesn't have bugs?) and I'll address some of them today with a 1.0.1 release.

Thanks for the warm response and keep it coming.

If you haven't tried Focus I think now it's a good time to do so.

In the mean time, you can watch our promotional video, below.

69% of the visits abandoned our page. These users neither went to the app store nor continued to our mobile website.

In other words nobody likes app download interstitials, so stop.

I agree that if the "Carry on doing what you wanted without this annoying advert and we'll never ask you ever again" button was as big, and as significantly boxed and colored as the "Get the App" button - then the drop off rate would have been way smaller.   But, again, we'll never know without a bunch of A/B testing.
