Learned a new lesson this week. Don't delete the app data / cache for WatchMaker on my phone. It has messed up most of the watch faces I've downloaded causing me to redownload them. So far I'm part way through the faces starting with B.
EDIT: on the plus side I've found several new beautiful faces and backing all the faces up in case this happens again.

+derry davis You can manually sync without a third party app or using auto sync (for google) or drop sync for dropbox.

I have been having issues with Google drive where it appears now to require a gmail type of permission verification for downloads from the cloud on shared permissions. I found that if google plus calls Chrome that the automatic verification may fail and has hto be enforced. Works normally if using Chrome by itself or if another browser is called by google plus. Dropbox works fine but depending on how you use it may need to subscribe for larger storage (which is huge) as drive gives you 15gb but dropbox gives you 2gb, 1tb for $9.99.

If you go with these make sure to enable 'hidden file' or backups will fail in directories with 'hidden files'.

Request from +Rich Torque to turn the album cover from the legendary led to a watch. Took me a bit to come up with something i liked. I Used the day and night 24 hour half dial approach for this one. Did this once on a spy vs spy and mr jones orbital watch. I included the holes concept form the original album as much as possible. 6 pm it will match up perfectlly as created (zeppelin under the 12) and once ever minute aswell depending where the Zeppelin is, when you see all the faces in all the circles as in the video hen i go to dim its lined up. I excluded all the faces on the top layer which let them reveal underneath that was the main idear. I added 4 modes into it so you can tap it from being half covered as in the reference image to the right to not at all as in the big image below. Check the video to see me cycle through the modes. The hand is your battery indicator in LIT mode for your Watch and in Dim it switches to your Phone battery indicator, thats why I included some reference markers white ones on the outer rim on the bottom so you can read the power levels easier. During the day the day will be displayed and at night the darker side with the original logo from the inner cover the record came with. Enjoy hopy you like it rich, it was quite a challenge, and took me all morning long. ;)

This announcement means that every Visual Studio, from the free Community edition right up to the Enterprise edition, now has access to the Xamarin tooling so that developers can build applications for Android and iOS (though iOS development continues to need access to an OS X machine) using the .NET and C# tools they love.
The Xamarin SDK is also being open sourced.

Be safe out there
 
34 percent of Android users aren’t even using a lockscreen password, according to Duo Security data. Be safe, lock up your phone.

By +Robert Triggs 
Android doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to software security. From Stagefright to root exploits, there always seems to be something that could be better. After some pressure, Google is now busy patching away exploits as they appear. But it all might be for naught, as a large number of Android users appear to be failing to use even the most basic levels of security. It’s us at fault this time. According to data from Duo Labs, w...

In today's smartphone-centric world, everybody and their mom (quite literally) has a camera in their pockets at all times, and the end result is millions of pics splashed all over the web. Of course, anyone can snap a photo and share it with the world, but taking a good pic is another story. We all think we can take nice pictures nowadays, but keep in mind photography is no easy skill to master. There's a plethora of factors that go into shoot...

Does anyone else have an issue with the dimmed mode of custom watch faces? Mine look like low bit images instead of what the modder provides as a dimmed mode.

+derry davis Yup, but then it would be jagged by default anyway (never mind the limited color palette in ambient). The simplest black and white faces will look best in ambient mode for now. You can try some color as long as it's one of the basics (red, blue, yellow, green), and there are no gradients. You could set an orange background on some faces, for example, and it'll turn red in ambient.

Sean Grondin's faces for Watch Maker provide great options to improve ambient mode appearance, if you want to try those.

Today will officially be a bit longer than usual, because an extra second, or “leap” second, will be added. Why? We explain: http://go.nasa.gov/1GWOhY7
