I don't have much to judge these numbers on, especially considering that this was the first technical article I've ever published, but I figured that in the spirit of open source I'd share the stats and referrals for a little over a week. Around 6500 views, 2500 reads and 80 recommends (not including today). For me, the early results more-than justify the time it took to write the article.

The #androiddev  community here is great. It really gives everyone a chance to contribute in a meaningful way. Thanks for everyone's feedback, re-shares, and support!

+Android Weekly provided the most referrals, by far. Google+ was key, and it should be noted that Android Weekly may not have found the article if it were not for it. Twitter results were minor, which mostly reflects my involvement there.

So if you've been thinking about writing a technical article about Android, but have been putting it off for a long time (like me), now's a great time. Almost-zero friction with Medium, amazing community on G+, and incredible resources, like AW, to help get the word out. With all of the new support APIs, and M around the corner, there is a lot to be covered!

I'm already working on Part 2, and have a rough plan for 3. Hoping to get 2 out early next week.

Drag and Swipe with RecyclerView

Just published an article about adding drag & drop and swipe-to-dismiss to RecyclerView without using a third-party library. It's a basic introduction to ItemTouchHelper and has a corresponding example project on Github:

OK that's pretty impressive.
Also, for some reason the next video in YouTube's autoplay was 'Expressing Anal Glands: A Full Circle Veterinary Care Instructional Video'(checked this in incognito mode too).
Technology is wonderful and terrible.

Just getting around to reading the Data Binding Guide in the new Android docs. Wow, I've always wanted to be able to do these types of things in layout files! Really awesome. #androiddev

From my experience ( https://github.com/radzio/android-data-binding-recyclerview/ ) it works quite well. This Java code in xml it is not big issue. You can create class with some "print" logic, write unit test for it and later use it in your xml.

Great, another Google service that runs all day until you stop it: ScreenOnService. I don't even have the quick search box on my Nova home screen, nor do I have "Ok Google" on. Does Google really need to run every time I turn my screen on? For what reason?

I may have too root/xpose my personal device for the first time ever, just to disable Google apps and services.

Can't this service be a part of "Now on tap" feature? It analyzes what is on the screen, so ScreenOnService makes sense to me.

Android-ItemTouchHelper-Demo

Companion project to an article series that explores the new ItemTouchHelper APIs that are part of the Android Support Library. With it, you can easily add drag & drop and swipe-to-dismiss to RecyclerView (without the need for a third-party library).

The Design Support Library is pretty awesome. There are definitely some bugs, but it seems most are already being taken care of (from the bug tracker). I can attest that everything happening in this GIF is non-trivial to code, especially when trying to do it yourself with scroll offsets and animators.

Still trying to get a full handle on Behaviors and CollapseMode, but can already tell how powerful these new classes and APIs are.

So, the FloatingActionButton is really only an ImageView that has 2 pre-defined sizes? I find it hard to believe anyone really need help with that part of the spec... How about the animations, transitions, "speed dial", toolbar morphing, shadows/elevation, etc? Those were the things a lib is really needed for.

I only bring this up because Googlers actually poked fun at the community demand for a Floating Action Button class, at IO15. It's clear that our requests were not fully understood. And yes... I'm aware of the handful of existing third-party libs that are more feature-complete.

It does not seem to be available on github yet, but it is in the "Sources for Android 'MNC' Preview SDK". It is about 130Mb

Searching Material Guidelines 

Google clearly spent a lot of time redoing the Google Design website, but has yet to add the most basic of features: search. This is what happens when visual design is put ahead of usability.

There's a new search screen in the main design page, but it doesn't search the actual specs. Can't make this stuff up.

As part of the continued iOS'ification of Android Design, splash screens are now recommended.

Yeah, what company leader will decide that he doesn't want a branded launch? I vote against this guideline, in its current form it's misleading and allows a bad decisions to sound like a right ones!
