It's driving me  nuts - some months ago someone posted a slick way (maybe here, maybe on Twitter) to generate a dialog in an Android app showing attribution and links for the open source libraries used. I can't find anything on the subject now! Does this ring a bell for anyone?  Should I give up and just roll my own?

I very much enjoyed the Google I/O sessions on Android.  Lots of useful information!  https://developer.android.com/channels/io2013.html

It's annoying that the latest/fastest Android phones available to me are all the same large format.  I'm not sure how OEMs manage to create so many phone variants and still not create a combination that meets my needs.

If anyone is expecting or already has kids, I could use your opinion on using your phone to help stay safe during pregnancy.  I'm building a new Android app.  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/R733B8C

Halloween app roundup.  I'm testing IAP and other updates to my Pumpkin Carver apps for Halloween.  If you have a Halloween app for Android or any other experiences with holiday apps that you'd like to share, please leave a comment at http://www.projectjourneyman.com/android-apps-halloween-2012

An interesting point from Mark Murphy's AnDevCon presentation: bloggers, journalists, and enthusiasts are running recent hardware (and therefore recent software). Do you want your Android app to look stale to them?

Time to start paying better attention to the Android Design guidelines, eh?

The ActionBarSherlock demos are quite handy to quickly visualize all the cool things you can and should do with the ActionBar on Android. http://actionbarsherlock.com/samples.html

Cool!  Glad you're getting an app together.  Let me know how it goes, and if you need any help.

Great food for thought from AnDevCon. I really should block out more time after conferences to implement and do more research...
