big update to android AppCompact Support library
 
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.

A blog post on some of the more low-level details about the v22.1.0 support library release.

#AndroidDev
It’s been a while since my last post so here we are. You may have seen that the 22.1.0 support libraries were released yesterday, which is probably the biggest non-platform release we’ve done with the support library.

App indexing (g.co/AppIndexing) has been helping you drive engagement with your app for a little while — we now have 30 billion links within apps indexed. Starting this week, you can also drive discovery with people who don’t have your app installed yet. If you’ve implemented App Indexing, when indexed content from your app is relevant to a search done on Google on Android devices, people may start to see app install buttons for your app in search results. Tapping these buttons will take them to the Google Play store where they can install your app, then continue straight on to the right content within it. 

With the addition of these install links, we are starting to use App Indexing as a ranking signal for all users on Android, regardless of whether they have your app installed or not. We hope that Search will now help you acquire new users, as well as re-engage your existing ones. To get started, visit g.co/AppIndexing.

Facebook has a simple solution to a big problem — coding for best performance across different devices. Some folks like to call it fragmentation, others call it choice, but by any name there are certainly a lot of different Android phones. Building applications that need to work with all of them is no easy task. You have wildly different hardware configurations that make for a big...

Android Developer, with training Skills such as Java
Introduction

Well, I am a guy who carries a Positive Attitude towards Life, keep motivating my friends and coworkers. 

Love my profession and enjoy every bit of my work. Lately I have switched to Android Programming and it's really exciting. I think Android OS is really robust and always evolving to work with.

So Professionally I am an Android Developer, used to be Java Developer with Server Side Duties. I love to teach programming, So in my free time and also part time I train students into Java Development 

In my free time, I like Reading Books and multiply my Knowledge by Googling and watching YouTube. 

I do believe in God and Karma, although sometimes I don't understand religion and all those complex Rules and Regulation. So I choose my own religion and I am flexible when it comes to Praying.

When I was a Kid I used to love Skating and Cycling. They allowed me to explore nearby places. Sometimes I think to give up my beLoved Bike and start riding bicycle ;)

I talk very less, but can stand a deliver the content. 

Rest Is Mystery, Let's Discover Me...

The Location of the Hotel is in the center (Market) area, so its too noisy. There are two Estend Hotels nearby. One Old and a new one. Old Hotel is very poorly maintained and new hotel is a bit better. The Staff was was and co-operative, but the location is too noisy and spoils the honeymoon mood. They use some very strong cleaning agent (liquid) which stinks and causes headache.

Worst Hotel I have ever stayed and spoiled my last two days of honeymoon. The Staff is very rude, irresponsible and lazy. The Food is pathetic and the managers and waiters there are very arrogant. Though the Hotel is very huge and has lots of employees, it's not at all maintained, esp food department. They even have old Window AC which are too noisy. We changed the room but we very counting hours to get out of the hotel. Top priority is given to the Foreigners, but not to the Indians. What a shame.
