Great Stuff! Let's see if user adoption is a bit better this time.
 
Android Wear Developer Preview Now Available

Today, we announced that Android is extending to wearables with #AndroidWear. So how do you get started developing for Android Wear? Well, you probably already have. With Android Wear, notifications from your Android phone are automatically sent to your wrist.

You can also now sign up for the Android Wear Developer Preview which lets you customize notifications for the wrist. The Preview provides new APIs for wrist-based wearables, such as receiving voice replies, adding notification pages and stacking multiple notifications. There’s also a system image for the Android emulator to let you test your notifications.

To learn more about Android Wear and the Developer Preview, check out the blog post (linked below) and these #DevBytes episodes:

Also make sure to join the new Android Wear Developers community right here on Google+ to discuss your next wrist-based wearable project:

I had some great discussions with +Dominik Dary today about #Android, #Espresso, #Selendroid and about our general development processes. It's always great when you can share technical insights with other teams within a global company.

Can anyone recommend a good Qi wireless charger which works well with Nexus devices (N4, N5, N7, N7 2013)?

I just received some new additions to my Android wall. They fit in nicely but I still have to leave room for the new mini series by +Andrew Bell. :)

Maybe I have missed a blog post or Google didn't mention it so far but the Google Play Store has changed the way the "what's new"  store listing is supplied. Before it was only possible to set one global what's new listing which is displayed for all users. Now it is possible to define a what's new listing for each APK. This enables you to already promote new features in a staged rollout without teasing it for all the other users. Great news!

I just published an article on our eBay dev blog about how we do Android development at mobile.de. So, if you ever wanted to know how Android development looks like at Germany's biggest car marketplace:

Great! We just finished migrating all of our 226 UI Test from Robotium to Espresso. We faced some shortcomings along the way but did manage to work around them. Let's see how we can improve some of our tests now with the new version.
 
Hard to believe, but almost 3 months have passed since we launched Espresso for Android; time flies when you’re doing UI testing. Today, we are excited to share a new version with you.

Notable updates in Espresso 1.1:

Swipe view actions - swipe left or right at those wonderful view pagers (goo.gl/8WTNLs)

Multi-window support - target those pesky autocomplete windows with onView.inRoot (goo.gl/sOX1hN)

Type text improvements - append text in a pre-focused field by using typeTextIntoFocusedView (goo.gl/9ObM8K)

A new contrib library - which includes support for interacting with Navigation drawers (goo.gl/l5E8Xd)

Various bug fixes and optimizations - review full list of changes here: goo.gl/VOSOEj

Happy New Year and happy #androidtesting !

Really hooked on Rise Against right now. Great energy for coding! This great deal for 4 albums helped with the buying decision.
