Hey folks, going to do a little bit of an experiment here. We're exploring different ways to make our docs work even better for you. Let's start by running a little poll…

Which syntax highlighting color scheme do you prefer in docs?

If you feel strongly about any of them, let me know in the comments!

Genius x Spotify, Play Music and more!

Say hello (sorry, couldn't resist) to one of our coolest updates to the Genius Android app this week—suggesting lyrics for your currently playing music! It's an only-on-Android experience, made possible by the OS.

It's easy to slam the media APIs as an example of what's wrong with Android. We implemented our "song listening" three different ways, to support only back to API 16. At the same time, they show what's right: progress. The newest media APIs can talk to everything from your car to your Chromecast. A true media support library could go a long way toward bridging this gap. Also, in the meantime, a lot of wine.

Shout out to +Ian Lake for his eleventh-hour tips and all around media knowledgeability. [1] And thank you to Spotify, for having clear public documentation and a kick-ass service! [2]

[1] Ian's excellent talk at BABBQ (not specific to media listeners):

[2] Spotify's broadcast Intents. Note that these and Google Play's intents are only needed for <19. Spotify (and every major music playback app I tried) broadcasts notifications using the MediaSession as you would expect.

[3] Google Play's undocumented Intents:

[4] RemoteController for API 19-21: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/media/RemoteController.html

[5] MediaController for 21+: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/media/session/MediaController.html

Slightly off-topic: does this mean that MediaPlayer might someday actually give useful error messages? Or allow us to check what state it thinks it's in? I like the sound of 'media support library'.

My latest side project: a Sketch + jQuery-based, multi-screen prototyping tool, for designers who can and can't code. Won't be ready for a while, but if you've got strong opinions on these kinds of things, let me know.

I can listen to Nick's wonderful British accent all day. But more seriously, awesome Design Notes episode!
 
DESIGN NOTES with +Nick Butcher of Google
http://www.designnotes.fm/all/with-nick-butcher-of-google

This week I spoke with Nick Butcher, a Design and Development Advocate at Google with the design chops to envision a great app like Plaid(1) and the development knowledge to bring it to life.

In this episode we covered a lot of ground, from crafting great sample apps to structuring and receiving feedback, the role and nature of prototyping tools, and even how to force yourself into thinking about responsive design.

Check out the full rundown at the link above, and listen on your favorite service below!

That's not an accent. That's just what English is supposed to sound like...

Hi +Roman Nurik, I really like using your Launcher Icon Generator, but for some reason it's not working anymore.
I tried using Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer, and all of those had problems. (Internet Explorer was the best surprisingly).

Please fix it :)
Thanks!
