Have you tried the new Firebase APIs? Here's a great sample app from my colleagues at +Novoda​
We have been playing with +Firebase for a bit at +Novoda and we wrote and app and a blog post to share our thoughts. novoda.com/blog/bonfire/

I just ran into an odd issue that was effectively causing all accounts on my phone to sync every 25 seconds and drain the battery in 3 hrs flat.

Any modification (add, remove, change password) to any Account from the AccountManager will trigger a sync for all of the system's SyncAdapters, including the one you've just created in your app!

So yeah, don't do that.

I cannot recommend enough +Mark Allison​! It's always a pleasure working with him. 
I'm currently on the lookout for a new gig. My current contract is coming to an end and so I'm looking for a new Android Development Contract position. I'm based in the UK, just outside London so London-based positions would be good. However, I have a great setup in my home office (High speed broadband, high spec dev machines, test devices, my own CI server, etc.) so am happy to work remotely.

Any companies looking to hire a #GDE for Android and author of https://blog.stylingandroid.com on a Contract basis please get in touch.
