LeakCanary was released today. I've never seen so many people excited to find memory leaks in their apps.

Hopefully, this means an end to app hangs and even entire device hangs when viewing web content. My OPO has hung many times and needed to be rebooted when using Reddit Is Fun, for example. Especially bad with GIFs. And I've seen countless complaints about the same from other users, with different devices.

WebView updates are cool, but just like with seamless Google Play Services updates, a chance of a buggy release that can render the device unstable shows just how much of a double-edged sword this concept is.

Some reports of crashes/hangs:

You can now hit the road with Android Auto. Developers, it’s time to get your Android Auto enabled apps published to the Play Store. This blog post (http://goo.gl/uYA9RR) by +Wayne Piekarski discusses the steps to enable your apps for Android Auto and the hardware that is now available for consumers.

Google+ provides the best photos experience bar none. I can see why they want to unbundle it.

What I like about it:
Autobackup from my Androids and iPhones
Good APIs (neeeeerrrrrd alert)
Excellent web portal
Standalone Photos app on Nexus devices (and maybe others?)

What I'd like to see:
Standalone iOS photos app
Support for other social media services (tying their products to Google+ is very much an early 2000s Microsoft strategy)
Make video uploads not be so goofy and error prone (Google owns youtube, cmon!)

Apple just released their desktop Photos app to much fanfare, but it's just meh-worthy. And their web portal (iCloud) is atrocious.

Where do developers live? How much do developers earn? Vim or Emacs? Tabs or spaces? This is the most comprehensive software developer survey on earth.

If you are a developer, but not a mobile developer, the question is - "why not?"

It all depends on what you're trying to achieve though.
