+SwiftKey has been a key part of my life, but what if app developers could help make suggestions even better?

There's a clue in here for those who don't have the new +Google Play update.

As +Kirill Grouchnikov put it, replace "back to me" with "swipe from recents"

I'm running out of T-shirts, anyone out there wanting me to advertise their products while I go running?
 
So, it's kind of bad that I can't tell if this is a Poe or not. 
A team of UC Berkeley researchers has discovered that the 85% of the average tech worker’s clothes are free tech t-shirts, hoodies, and other assorted clothing. The study of this prevalent free...

A fellow Android UI Toolkit team member, +yiğit boyar, just posted two great articles about RecyclerView. In particular, he discusses how animations work, and what you need to understand about RecyclerView and LayoutManager in order to get great animations with your own custom LayoutManager.

RecyclerView was one of my favorite features in the Lollipop release. For one thing, it took another run at the recycling-container problem with a more flexible architecture than ListView. But also, it offers default animations for basic add/remove operations in the container. No longer will you need to watch 10 different DevBytes on how to animate views in ListView! In fact, you should just get everything for free if you use the default LayoutManagers that the support library provides. But if you want to do your own custom layout, check out Yigit's articles to understand how it all works.

Video : Top 10 memory tips for android

Thanks to +- Rocko - for digging up the video to the slides I posted yesterday. Entirely worth 50 minutes of your day (or 3 hours, if you've watched it multiple times, like me..)

Pretty stoked that +Haptik is now also featured in +Google Play's "Essential Apps" category in India! We've been part of the Productivity section since June, but being given the tag "essential" just means so much.

If you're in India, definitely give the app a try: http://goo.gl/yx0yd6

Just used airdroid for the first time after so long, and they've become really, really good at what they do. By far one of the best apps out there.

Couldn't watch this beyond 17 minutes, and find it impossible to find any love for my own country right now.

It's completely disgusting. It's things like this that make me want to just drop everything and leave this country if I get the chance.

Starting a new series of posts called #ShitYouCanLearnWhileGradleBuilds

This week, I'm learning to throw darts. As you can see, I'm getting closer now that I'm hitting the board.

Meanwhile, in India, the bandwidth definition is 512kbps. Yup, 1/50th of the new American one.
 
Broadband definitions have changed and the minimum is now 25Mbps up from 4Mbps. Good.
25Mbps minimum would leave 19% of US homes without broadband access.

I was hungry as hell after a long day roaming around. Originally I was heading somewhere else, but I'm so glad I came here. Ordered the chimichangas which were really good. Good enough to make me write my first review on Google.
