i'm happy to announce a bunch of new android open source releases:

1) pay-me

An Android library for handling In-App-Billing V3 used in the Play Store. It's based on Google's sample code which has been cleaned up and tested. Great if your app needs an easy way to handle donations or other forms of payments.

2) whassup 

Provides access to WhatsApp messages stored on the device with transparent decryption.

3) SMS Backup+ 1.5.x

The first two libraries mentioned are used in the new version of SMS Backup+  - as you can guess it now also performs backup of WhatsApp messages.

interesting blog article on how a future version of iOS (7 ?) might (finally) facilitate sharing of data between processes / apps. it is already implemented but can only be used by privileged (e.g. apple's own) apps.

love the accent (yorkshire?) in this youtube review of one of my apps...
also realised that there are too many settings which confuses some people.

Nick Fischer sharing some architecture details on Next SoundCloud, a pretty awesome single-page application: http://backstage.soundcloud.com/2012/06/building-the-next-soundcloud/

Especially the approach to CSS and sharing models is really interesting.
