EDIT: UK only for the moment.

Hello all, I'd be very grateful if anyone who follows movies, TV shows, games and music would be interested in beta testing our new app Rescover.

The app helps you find and be notified of upcoming releases, new seasons and similar shows so you "never miss a thing". Currently it's UK-only but US is coming very soon.

The beta community is:

Automated android memory leak detection library by square
Nobody likes OutOfMemoryError crashes. In Square Register, we draw the customer's signature on a bitmap cache. This bitmap is the size of the device's screen, and we had a significant number of out of memory (OOM) crashes when creating it. We tried a few approaches, none of which solved the ...

If you've ever taken a screenshot or a screen video from an Android phone, there's a good chance you've been copying and pasting shell commands. I made a tool that does all this in one single click, even on multiple devices at the same time. 

I actually just made this for my team, but it turned out a lot of other people in the company could use it, so I thought other people might find it useful too.

Rescover App - Never miss a thing.

Android app coming soon :) Keep up with movie, TV, music releases and more.
 
Rescover is coming to Android! If you're on Android and would like early access, please get in touch ASAP at hello@rescover.com and we’ll get you hooked up!
Since we launched Rescover, by far the most popular piece of feedback we’ve had is ‘when is Rescover coming to Android?’. So, we thought we better do something about that ;-) Rich, our superstar Android developer has been hard at work and we’re pleased to say that an Android version of Rescover is literally just around the corner. Possibly even as soon as next week.   If you're on Android and would like early access, please get in ...

Our new design overlays all your runs / rides in a selected area, the darker the line the more frequently you take that route. Available in a range of colours.

Android Support Library 22.1 - ActionBarActivity is dead, long live AppCompatActivity
You’d be surprised how much we can pack into a 0.1 update to the Android Support Library: revision 22.1 includes improvements to Support V4, AppCompat, Leanback, RecyclerView, Palette, and Renderscript.

Support V4 adds drawable tinting to all API4+ devices, the new ColorUtils class makes working with colors easier, and new interpolators have been added to make great animations.

AppCompat gets a remake as we deprecate ActionBarActivity for the new AppCompatActivity, now built on a AppCompatDelegate that can be used to add AppCompat functionality to any Activity. There’s also a new AppCompatDialog, support version of AlertDialog, improvements to widget tinting, and expanded android:theme support.

Leanback now includes a guided step functionality, making it easy to build a multiple step process that looks great on Android TV.

RecyclerView seeks to make life easier with a new SortedList data structure, making it easy to tie a changing set of data to a RecyclerView.Adapter.

Palette is now 6-8 times faster and has a new Builder pattern for constructing Palette instances.

Renderscript improved reliability and performance and adds additional script intrinsic operations, bringing new pre-defined operations to all API 8+ devices.

Check out everything that has been added in this release and download the updated Android Support Library via the Android SDK Manager.

We’re all busy, but the never-ending deluge of email, social media feeds, tags and updates that define modern life are making it more difficult than ever to keep track of what’s important. Whether you’re into movies, video games, music, or something else entirely, it’s now not uncommon to hear about about a new release coming [&hellip

Does anyone know if there's any plan to update the RecyclerView support lib to include a RecyclerView compatible CursorAdapter?

There are a couple of decent gists out there, but right now we all seem to be writing our own almost identical implementations, plus implementing things like DividerItemDecoration just to get up and running where ListView left off*.

*I understand this is not a ListView replacement and it isn't so prescriptive, we shouldn't assume ListView-like usage. However I can see this higher barrier to entry meaning people may stick to ListView hacks (when it comes to things like insert/remove animation) where RecyclerView lib could improve things by helping out a little more with some common implementation patterns perhaps?
