Are you an iOS user who's moving to Android for the first time? Google now has a switching guide to help with your journey, available in many languages:
https://support.google.com/android/answer/6193424

And if you're going the other direction -- from Android to iOS -- Apple has a nice guide available on their help site:

+John Skeats Microsoft never implied that anywhere. Some blogs may have I suppose. Even for developers that port things you may have issues if your app uses features Windows Phone doesn't support.

I'm having a fun and relaxing time at WonderCon in Anaheim, California this weekend. Tons of great cosplay, nice dealer room, and generally much more chill vibe than San Diego Comic-Con.

Panels so far today included actors and producers from Teen Titans Go and a really interesting look at the making of Big Hero 6. Later today it'll be a Marvel Comics panel and the ever awesome Cartoon Voices script reading.

I enjoy epic rap battles, especially those produced by +ERB. This isn't one of theirs, but it is definitely epic. And funny!

I do most of my photo editing of my phone photos in Google's Photos app, but when I want some real photo editing superpowers I use +Snapseed. They've got a new version that's just started rolling out that adds some great new features. Check out +Nils Kokemohr's post below for the details.

Snapseed is a worthy companion to all you #androidography  fans, and very useful if you post here on Google+ to the +Android Photographers community.
 
Perfect your photos in a snap with the new Snapseed

With billions of images being uploaded and shared on a daily basis, we want to make it fast and easy for people to perfect their photos. What once required a desktop computer, costly software and hours of editing work, can now be accomplished quickly in a powerful app --  +Snapseed  

The new #Snapseed app gives you the precision and control of professional photo editing software on your phone or tablet. We’ve updated the app in many ways while staying true to our mission of helping everyone easily create extraordinary images. Here are the highlights:

New tools including Lens Blur, Tonal Contrast, intelligent perspective Transform, and Spot Healing

Selectively apply filters and effects to parts of the image using the Brush tool

Non-destructive editing via Stacks allows you to re-edit or undo any change. You can also copy edits from one image to another

Snapseed works with your phone camera shots as well as images from DSLRs, compact cameras, and more.

Get it today as it rolls out on the Play Store http://goo.gl/sQSfLM and the App Store http://goo.gl/irPbd4

Introduction
Hello! I'm an Android Community Manager for Google.

Here on Google+ you can expect me to post publicly about:
  • Google, Android, and Nexus
  • Occasional other tech news
  • Geeky stuff like comic books, video games, tabletop RPGs, and scifi & fantasy books/movies/TV
  • Infrequent posts about my travels, social dancing, and wine
Folks in my Friends/Acquaintences/Family/Co-workers circles will also get more personal posts from me.

Looking for other Community Managers of Google's consumer products? Here's the team:
About me:
I'm a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. I love rain, clouds, fog, and wind. I feel most at home in California coastal woods or tall snow-covered mountains. Squirrels are amazingly fun to watch and play with, but cats are the best animals to bond with. In college I wore black high-top shoes, part of that elite cadre of black high-top folks -- you know who you are. Technology is a drug I cannot help but be addicted to. And winter is my favorite season of the year, which is why I use Wintergrey as my handle around the web.

I'm a geek, but hopefully one with obsessions beyond traditional geek bounds. My niche interests include gaming (computer/console as well as tabletop RPGs), dancing (
social ballroom and Irish ceili), comic books (American-style and some manga), movies (domestic or foreign, Hollywood or indie), animation ("traditional" and anime), skiing (snow, not water), martial arts, science fiction & fantasy, progressive rock, period events, yadda yadda.

The views expressed on
 Google+, in my blog, via Twitter, on Facebook, and elsewhere (except via official Google channels) are mine alone and not those of my employer.
Bragging rights
I can quote Star Trek 2, do the rise-and-grind, roll for initiative, and update Google+ from my Android phone. Possibly not all at the same time.

Neighborhood liquor store and deli with a surprisingly diverse liquor selection. Not as inexpensive or large as the nearby BevMo but family run and they often carry stuff the big stores don't have.

One of the few local quality restaurant/bars. The cocktail menu is interesting with many things I hadn't seen before, however it has a very tropical bend. The menu is primarily Italian with a hint of California cuisine, nice food but nothing to swoon over.

If you've been to one BevMo you've been to them all, and this one is no different. Fortunately, BevMo's seem to be universally good. Essentially this is a warehouse full of alcoholic beverages and paraphernalia. Although they rarely carry much truly exotic and hard to find stuff, they do have a massive assortment of wine, beer, and spirits to stock your bar with. Keep a look out for their famous 5-cent sales, where they sell a bottle of wine for 5 cents if you buy another bottle of the same stuff at full price -- you can explore a lot of wine this way. This particular BevMo is relatively new as of the time I'm writing this, but the staff seems to have their routine down. The store is clean and well organized. They tend to run out of boxes during the 5-cent sale so I recommend bringing your own boxes or totes.
