Das neueste Werk von +grandcentrix

Die +MIGROS App jetzt neu bei +Google Play!

Ich hoffe die Arbeit hat sich gelohnt und die App bereichert die Geräte von vielen Schweizern, bzw. Migros Kunden.

Eine iPhone Version gibt es natürlich auch (https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/migros/id412845300)

Guile I AM GOING TO CONVERSE YOU SO HARD

Conversely:

When resources become so scarce or market competition so severe that you literally CAN NOT offer your product in an appealing fashion, everyone will steal everything and your society, empire, or republic will devolve.

Android App Polishing: Preserving Context to Help Users

With the release of Capitaine Train for Android[0], several people recently asked me how we implemented some of the tips & tricks available in the application (some of these tricks are barely visible but remember, I love details :p). In order to showcase some of the most interesting application bits of code, I thought it could be helpful to Android developers to start a small series of posts. Feel free to comment this article if you want me to describe something you found nice in the Capitaine Train application.

Just like every other applications, The Capitaine Train app contains several forms: sign in/up form, user info forms, etc. Forms are usually a pain in the ass to develop because you need to make sure they are clean enough not to annoy the user but verbose enough to let her/him understand what kind of information she/he is currently filling in.

When implementing the first internal versions of the application we obviously used EditText as our favorite class. Unfortunately, we rapidly faced an issue with the default design of EditText: the user loses context once at least one character is typed into a field. Because EditText uses the "hint" string as the field's description, we had some pre-filled fields that were almost impossible to understand.

In order to overcome this issue, we decided to implement an emerging pattern introduced by Matt D. Smith on Dribble[1] and described by Brad Frost on his blog[2]: the float label pattern. We actually called it internally (i.e the classes are named after): the floating hint pattern.

The implementation is rather simple and consists on a base class we called FloatingHintControl. FloatingHintControl is an abstract container that is made of a TextView and requires an additional 'interactable' View (i.e. the control). The floating hint is displayed/animated depending on the control state as reported by subclasses. In the current public build of Capitaine Train, we have several FloatingHintControl subclasses:

  • FloatingHintAutoCompleteTextView: an AutoCompleteTextView with a floating hint
  • FloatingHintButton: this UI widget is actually a button that displays a date picker dialog when tapped
  • FloatingHintEditText: the floating hint equivalent of an EditText
  • FloatingHintSpinner: A Spinner that always displays a floating hint description

Preserving user's context is both essential and difficult to do on mobile applications. Because screens sizes are generally small you always have to weight the pros and cons of adding information on screen. If you are not really satisfied about the built-in EditText, the floating hint may be a great compromise when designing forms in your Android applications.

I'll track events like "configuration change", "up navigation", "back button" and "open navigationdrawer" with +Google Analytics in my next update of the +Mini-Rock-Festival App. I'm excited about the results.

I don't understand why the camera handles orientation changes. I know the ActionBar problem from 4.2 and earlier but this orientation change camera lagg sucks.

Screencast your Android Screen in Hangouts

Showing a customer your work on their #Android  app via #Hangouts  is hard. There is no simple way and there are only a few ways with good performance. Here is my working setup with the best FPS rate:

I'm using mirror [1] to share my screen to an Apple TV. This works perfectly for presentations. (Even better than mirroring the iPhone screen to the Apple TV)

I'm using AirServer [2] to emulate an Apple TV on my Mac. The frame rate is higher than using the mirror [1] screen to PC options (both flash and HTML5).

The next step is very simple. I'm using the screenshare option in Hangouts.

Another approach is +AirDroid [3]. It just works, but the performance is bad. They focus on quality.

Introduction
Android Entwickler mit Leib und Seele. Google Fan und Apple Kritiker.

Ich habe früher gebloggt, aber das geht aus Zeitmangel nicht mehr.

Ich nutze seit einem halben Jahr ein MacBook als primären Rechner, ein Chromebook auf der Couch und mein Nexus 5 ist immer am Mann. Benachrichtigungen gibt es bei mir direkt auf die Pebble und zum Spielen kommen Android Tablets zum einsatz.
Mein Windows Rechner hat inzwischen ausgedient. Man wird ja älter und kommt nicht mehr so viel zum zocken.
