If you are looking to setup +Google Analytics into your mobile app for Android, there are plenty of questions you may have if you have little or no experience.  Knowing what you want to track and the best way to do so needs to be figured out before implementation. Organization is key!  

I put together this tutorial to show a very nice way to implement Google Analytics for Android.  I show an advanced setup for multiple trackers and lots of great tips on how to get the best data for you.

I reference sample code from my open-source example project hosted on GitHub.  Links to the source is at the bottom of the article.  

On top of all that good stuff, I have screenshots of the data results collected by the sample project.  I also have a real world example from my most recent application that I been working on, Phandroid News (

This is a great tool that provides Software Licenses in Plain English! If you are confused about how to comply with any Code Licenses, EULAs, ToS or Software Licenses... this seems to be your bookmark!
Lookup open source licenses summarized & explained in plain English.

Twitter app adds highlights... The notification is a nice new layout and the rounded corner swipe cards I really like. We shall see how smart the highlights are to see how well this overall feature will work. I'm sure it will vary person to person too.

I'm a bad example. I don't use Twitter like most people. All of my usage is through lists...I don't really follow anyone other than some friends from high school. So most of my "highlights" were just specific to my location and some of the stuff my friends are interested in.

I'll check out anything open source.

The use of CC license for the source kind of worries me though. Looks like this project inherited it from the software it was based on, but one of the first things I'd be looking into would be switching over to a license that's actually intended for software.

Perhaps the original intent was to have it so the source and actual wall papers were covered under CC simultaneously, but that's not how the license is supposed to be used.

I totally missed this post... added to my list of podcast's to listen to. ☺

Good luck +Liam Spradlin​, should be a great success!

Here's what I was teasing yesterday! Design Notes is a new podcast, focused on talking to developers and designers about the projects they're working on (or worked on) that excite them. We'll go through some of the main points or concepts from the project and try to foster interesting discussion around those points.

Doing a one-on-one podcast is something totally new to me, so I look forward to some feedback. +Francisco Franco was kind enough to be my very first guest, and I think it went well! I have a couple of other guests lined up (one I'm editing right now), so we should see some rapid iteration over the next few episodes!

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and posting the other episodes I'm working on :)

Here's episode 1:

The podcast is available on Soundcloud, Pocket Casts, and - hopefully soon - iTunes (it will show up here If you'd like to receive it some other way, let me know!

DESIGN NOTES with Roman Nurik

This week I talked to +Roman Nurik, Design Advocate at Google and the developer and designer behind apps like Dashclock widget and Muzei live wallpaper.

In this episode we talked about the relationship between developers and designers, why everyone should be able to give design input, what design tools of the future might look like, and a LOT more. Check out the show notes at for the full rundown.

Well, no surprise here.
Apple copies Android...literally.
Apple's first Android app on Google Play wasn't developed by Apple. In fact, Apple's new Move to iOS Android app is just a rebranded clone of an existing Android app called Copy My Data by Media Mushroom.

Technology enthusiast, early adopter, loves everything Android and loving husband that is a father of four.
My name is Steven Albright and I am the Lead Android Developer for Neverstill Media, the parent company of websites such as, and many others in the Consumer Tech, Gaming, and Lifestyle markets.  

I am a technology enthusiast, early adopter and buy way too much tech stuff.  Since the beginning of this year I am a proud father of four (3 babies [yep, triplets] and 1 two yr old).  This makes my home and work life both challenging and exciting... not to mention exhausting.  Every moment I am not working I am spending with my kids and loving wife.  

I'd fit perfect for the following types of circles:
  • Android
  • Java
  • PHP
  • Technology
  • Social Media
  • Server Administration
  • Server Security
  • Developer
  • Gaming
  • Entrepreneurship
I went to school for Computer Networking so I have lots of neat certificates (along with knowledge) such as Security+, Network+, A+ Hardware, A+ Software and a bunch others that are network/security/administration related.  

I am the creator of Clutch Pad which was featuring on many sites such as LifeHacker, Droid-Life, etc.  It was one of the first Android applications that overlaid the application stack.  I soon hope to update it but my life has become pretty busy and crazy (remember...three babies and a 2 yr old).  

If you read this much you should just follow me and enjoy what I share to this wonderful G+ community :)
