Today I discovered Kitkat's TransitionManager. waaargh, so cool. And so annoying that I can't actually use it in anything real, because API 91.

(randomly playing with things) The latest build of Android x86 on the pixel supports the touch screen, the wifi, the sound card.. it's practically usable. Really nice. I still don't understand why chromeOS, honestly.

I've put my Aperture library in my Google Drive folder and all my photos are automatically available in Plus photos. This is awesome. It would be more awesome if this feature understood Aperture's folder format and didn't also put all the auto-generated thumbnails in plus as well, each in their own unique UUID-named album.

Thanks Tom.

/cc +Matt Steiner +Scott Johnston since this is the first time I've seen someone do this but I suspect it won't be the last.

Persuaded my Chromebook to boot android today. Terrible hardware support, but Android as a laptop OS is weirdly compelling. Would play more.

I was inspired by a +1 to poke at this again. The latest 4.4 RC supports the Pixel touch screen! Shiny!

I keep seeing an intermittent "cast screen" tile on my N5 settings pull-down, but I can't work out what I did to make it happen..

Version 0.9.3 / build 22 has been pushed to the play store Beta section, you should be seeing it roll out over the next couple of hours. It's small - the important change here is a fix for KitKat that makes session and speaker pages visible again. There's also a new style for the multiple-section table views that looks a lot better.

Build 13! Only change in this build is search support! Yep, you can search for events from the side menu, and you can search within the session lists of long events if you're looking for something in particular. As usual, I just pushed this to the Play store, so it may be a bit before it starts showing up on devices.

Happy testing!

And it looks like we have a winner, I logged out my other logged in (but not showing on top as primary/active) accounts and it worked.  Thanks, now to start poking around.

I love the architecture behind this. The mobile web version isn't a lot to do with me, but I wrote the iPhone / iPad and (still internal/alpha) Android versions, and the backend, and I'm really happy with the way that all the platforms use the same underlying data and templates but render it using native controls. I can do a lot of clever things with this platform in the future..
We've reinvented our mobile experience from the ground up, adding a brand new iPad app to our existing iPhone and Mobile Web apps and providing conference organisers with a great way of sharing event information with their attendees. #eventprofs   #ipad   #iphone

Sounds cool to have everything come together from a single source and not needing additional new layers for every new thing you do!
