A work buddy just clued me in to this.... and for the Android developers tired of using Android@Screen is great:  have a look at Vysor.

It is fantastic.  I just tried it and it does a couple really amazing things.

You can share and control and Android phone from a Chrome plug-in and it is wicked fast.

AndroidWear support is not there (at least not yet). It sees the device and initiates a window for it, but seems to get stuck.  Provably missing the AndroidWear App.

For kicks I tried reproducing an 720P video in the device while watching it fullsceen on my desktop and the lag was so minimal that it was barely noticeable.

The second feature that rocks.  Is you can share your session via a link to a remote user.

Playing with this, I shared the session with a second computer (using the shared via link option)... and the result was pretty much the same as the computer that was physically connected to the phone ( this was all running through the same network via wifi).

Finally I tested connecting from the second computer via adb and worked perfectly:   Vysor has some kind of adb server that presents the remote device as a network device to the local adb.

My final test, that failed... installing an App from the remote computer.  That did not seem to work from adb install, but I had to move on.  I will give it another go at some other point.

Vysor all an all a great utility for anyone interested to share/debug a device easily and remotely:   It only requieres to activate developer mode and debugging, a cable to physically connect the phone and a chrome plug-in.

Awesome!

Lately I've been writing about it my musings on the topic of Context Aware Apps (a topic that I've been exploring for almost a year).

I get the distinct impression that just as UI/UX has plays a tremendous role in a successful mobile App these days, how the app integrates with the user's reality is going to be just as much part of the future successful experience.

If so, having a model might be a good initial step to frame a conversation. Here are a few of my ideas on the topic.  Simple I know, but what I want is to have a few initial categories to explore and potentially use to frame an architecture.  

What do you think?
In the last few months, in this blog, we had touched on various ideas attempting to land the concepts behind context aware applications and various reasons that might make the notion a fundamental construct of the way we rela...

Got Android L running on a Nexus 7.... a bit underwhelm by the lack of material apps!  Ever since the I/O keynote my gmail app doesn't look the same.  :(


Other than that, it seems to be stable enough for daily use.  Congrats Android team.  Headed in the right direction.

You are running a dev release. It's not really supposed to be polished yet

Holly molly.... that looks like a really nice features.  Both the Mii 3 and this one do look like really nice phones.
We've seen the teasers and we've seen the leaks, so it's about time to see the real thing. Oppo has finally unveiled the Find 7 in Beijing just now, and

And the rate of innovation is slowing down?...   Print your own batteries - I did not even see that coming!

That is really cool short feature done with Google Glasses video:  Interesting world we are heading into...

Also, this is the kind of thing that really shows the vision (the why) for this tech.

but then... couldn't you install adblock in your mind to filter out a few of the unwanted flash ads.   Ohhhh I just thought of something... if we had tons of flash ads, and animated gif and all that.  Is that how +Scott MacDonald sees the world? hmmmm.. it might lead to a break through in medical science... who knows.

Horizontal Card  layout.

I really like the way  the library feels, etc.  Very nice. 

My question though if it is possible to create a Horizontally Scrollable Grid.  For tablets, when they are used horizontally, it would be very nice to be able to show them horizontally.

I looked around the community and I did a quick experiment, and it doesn't seem to be possible.

Is it?

Thank you!

To be honest I have never used a Horizontal List/GridView in Android.
I don't think you can achieve it with cardslib.
