Hi everyone!

Here is the 6th and last tutorial of our AndroidWear journey.

This time, there are just some small considerations about developing or not for wearables. Opportunities, pros and cons of this new fantastic platform! 

The reference code is available on GitHub at: https://github.com/SimoneCasagranda/android-wear-tutorial

Being at the last step of our Android Wear journey suggests us to make some assumptions and considerations on how to take advantage of this new platform in real scenarios. Beside this, we are going...

Auto Backup for Apps made really simple

With the Android M release all apps targeting the newest SDK version are getting automatic, full-data backups by default. It’s essential that developers make sure their apps behave correctly with this change.

Check out our blog post below for details on migrating from an existing BackupAgent, best practices for managing what data gets included in a backup and making automatic backup and restore a truly delightful moment for your users.

Tracking down memory problems in your application doesn’t have to be a chore! Alex Danilo has some great advice on how to use AndroidStudio’s tools to find, and fix memory problems in your application.

I've already seen it a while ago but it's a great and still valid talk.
 
Great Android Performance workshop from  +Chet Haase  and     +Romain Guy   DEVOXX 2013. These talks are great to get a grab-bag overview of a bunch of performance topics in a short amount of time.

I've been hanging out a lot lately with the Android Media Framework team, and that's gotten me thinking about how to do a better job with latency and native threads. Short answer: flatbuffers in single-reader-single-writer queues. But before you think too hard about that, read this: http://preshing.com/20130922/acquire-and-release-fences/. 
Acquire and release fences, in my opinion, are rather misunderstood on the web right now. That’s too bad, because the C++11 Standards Committee …

PNG files represent the bulk of android image content, especially if you’ve got a lot of UI elements in your application (rather than photo data). But PNG files also represent a huge problem in terms of file size; They are easy to bloat, and too often, we don’t give them enough attention to make them smaller.

In this video +Colt McAnlis, explains that taking a hard look at your PNG files can make faster to download, and easier to distribute.

A new +Udacity course just launched: Android Ubiquitous Computing with Google instructors +Timothy Jordan, +Wayne Piekarski, and +Joshua Gordon.

Take this course to learn the design paradigms and technical essentials of bringing your app to your user wherever and whenever they want or need it. The material in this course will give you the conceptual knowledge and expertise to extend your app with Android Wear, Google Cast, Android TV, and Android Auto.

Ever wanted an API Diff for the support library?

Well a lot of internal work has been going on recently to allow us to do exactly that.

Here's the first one which we have published: v22.1.0 -> v.22.2.0
https://developer.android.com/sdk/support_api_diff/22.2.0/changes.html

I'm generating the v22.2.0 -> v22.2.1 diff as we speak so hopefully it be online later this week (I'll comment here when it is).

Android Support Library 22.2.1 available now
This release is focused on product quality and stability, with a healthy dose of bugs and edge cases now fixed, particularly for users of the Android Design Library (http://goo.gl/ZgmA99) introduced in version 22.2.0.

You’ll also find a number of API improvements as well:
- FloatingActionButton’s new show() and hide() methods to allow triggering the appropriate animations programmatically
- Snackbar gains LENGTH_INDEFINITE for continuing to show a Snackbar until it is dismissed or another Snackbar is shown
- TabLayout now allows you to retrieve the currently selected tab via getSelectedTabPosition()
- NotificationCompat.MediaStyle now uses a fully fluent API, allowing chaining methods together
- RecyclerView’s SortedList now has convenience methods to batch insert items

Please continue to file any Support Library bugs at https://goo.gl/QHIwpH

Nice (handrawn) video explaining the MEASURE phase of the rendering pipeline, and why it can cause perf problems

On a side note, this guy's handwriting is way better than mine...
