Nice one.
 
This is a follow on from +Cyril Mottier's post yesterday[0] about floating labels on Android. If you haven't seen that post, go read it first. #AndroidDev

This pattern is actually something that I implemented last week (but haven't got around to posting). So anyway here is my implementation: 

FloatingLabelLayout
https://gist.github.com/chrisbanes/11247418

So what makes this different to the other libraries on GitHub?
For my use I needed to be able to still create the EditText myself in XML, for styling and other purposes.  As you can see in the example_layout.xml file in the gist, FloatLabelLayout wraps around your EditText to provide a label rather than trying to control everything.

FloatLabelLayout also changes the label's activated state based on the EditText's focused state. This means that you can easily set the label's textColor to a ColorStateList[1], to change it's color if the input is focused (see the screencap below).

If I was Google, I would include such Strings in my apps:

<string name="hello_arstechnica">Hello Ron, How are you? Having a Nice day?</string>
<string name="hello_ap">This a present for your next apk teardown, Android Police</string>

Yeah... Fragmentation....
5 148 supported devices, 28 000 active users, supporting Android 1.5
=> 0 crash.

Being an Android developer is such a nightmare, you are so right!

This application display train info in Real time, with specific tablet layout, uses Google Maps, Play Games, an ActionBar, has 2 widgets, a chat system between users and supports nearly every existing device!

Maybe not as nice and polished as +Cyril Mottier 's Capitaine Train application, but I work on it alone and during my free time ;-)

+Gabriele Mariotti +Wolfram Rittmeyer If you start talking about these companies, I am pretty sure we will talk about the design of their apps, like we already did with +Juhani Lehtimäki 

That's really frustrating to realize that train companies (public transportation) should be #1 in every Store, these apps are the most usefull on a mobile device, and their are definitily the worst, in general!

Crazy!

Dear #lazyweb  and followers,

Someone recently asked me a simple question while searching for an Android app and I couldn't help him, so I hope that you are better than me!

The goal is to find an app that would be able to share a presentation across multiple devices OVER BLUETOOTH , similar to Conference Pad for iStuff:
https://itunes.apple.com/be/app/conference-pad/id377782792?mt=8 

I am really surprised to see that all similar app in the Play Store cannot do the share with the bluetooth connection, they all rely on Wifi/Internet.

Any idea would be warmly welcome.

Problem with this company is that the rules of "good products = good sales" don't apply to them.
People buy wathever they release resulting in Samsung is unable to judge what is good and what is not.

That's a huge issue and such a frustration to see such waste of potential
 
Samsung is preparing for a 'post-Google era.'

Samsung Medial Solution Center President Hong Won-pyo told reporters today that Samsung is rapidly developing its Tizen operating system as an alternative to Android in preparation for a "post-Google era."

He said Samsung will release products that run on Tizen "as early as possible" and is looking for mergers and acquisitions to speed up the process of moving off Android.

The biggest barrier right now, he said, are "poor market conditions" (i.e. that Tizen doesn't have any apps).

Turning the old garage into an "Aperitif room" with some comic strip paintings on the wall.

(Are you using 'Aperitif' in English to describe a drink and some snacks before eating? I have seen some occurrences on the web, but not sure)

I am still looking for some comics references that could fit in a rhum/bamboo themed Aperitif room, If you have any ideas, feel free to share!
(Currently thinking about Thorgal, Asterix, Blake & Mortimer, Barbe-Rouge,...)

Aperitif is sometimes used - and would be understood - in America as well, although cocktail would be the more common parlance.  :+)

I couldn't resist!
With the new Google camera app released in Play Store and the editing features of the HTC M8, this is coming!
