Hey guys, just wanted say firstly what a great job you're doing with Android Studio. The recent big features (JNI integration, data binding, theme editors, vector raster) have been so awesome.

I'd like to make a request for one feature that would seriously help us out: better custom font support. Currently getting a custom font into e.g. my action bar requires some hefty messing around with code. It would be great if textStyles could support general fonts to make a switch of font as easy as inserting a line in xml. Is there any chance that this is on the roadmap for Android Studio development?

Oh, and a small point of feedback on the theme editor - it's not showing my transparent action bar theme! The app bar view shows my bar as green) my primaryColor, but I have a custom action bar style set on my theme that isn't displaying.

Thanks again, 

Sam

Using bound services to get background work done:

Getting background tasks right is important. We want our UIs to remain responsive while the background task does its thing. Here I'm going to focus on Android's 'bound services' and a neat pattern for getting background work done on some shared resource, such as an internet connection and ...

All Android Wear Apps  - 
 
Excited! Just released our Optiscan update to bring Android Wear functionality to our QR code utility application. This let's you instantly push a QR code from your phone to your watch. Scan and Click and it's right there on the watch in full screen - it's pretty cool. Should be very convenient for QR ticketing or for quickly sharing contact details with people.

We recently ported this app from iOS so we'd love to hear your feedback :)

Happy Tuesday! :)

So, we added android wear support to Optiscan (our QR code scanning app) that let's you push QR codes straight to your wrist. The 360 should be an interesting one to try with this. The round screen isn't optimal for displaying them, but it's so large they should still look and scan fine. Maybe we need a round version of QR codes...

Anyone seen the new version of hangouts? So flat! Definitely impressed with the look our designer went with on Optiscan. One step ahead of the curve!
