Latest beta messes with the display of folders when a background is not set in the settings. If set, there is no white overlay on the secondary items.

Please take a moment to consider and star the enhancement if you agree.
If you're an Android developer, and you want your screen to stay always on while you are debugging, but not while plugged in on your nightstand, start this issue.

I'm having some issues implementing a CollapsingToolbarLayout in my app. So I have it all setup and working (compared to a few different sources - including the CheeseSquare setup) - but I'm having some issues with spacing near the bottom of the layout (1st Photo) I was hoping someone might be able to help with.

It seems a few others have had this problem, and their answers did not solve mine - completely atleast:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31266078/whitespace-below-coordinatorlayout-in-drawerlayout/31266160

I tried adding the `android:layout_gravity="fill_vertical"` to the NestedScrollView / Recyclerview as suggested, and while that seems to (mostly) fix it, it now hides some of the lowest view inside the recyclerview (2nd photo). I'm sure there's a solution to this, but I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Looks like Google just updated the Play Store layout, but I just placed my new app up on the store, Server Monitor. It's a tool used for monitoring server status / uptime with background polling and logging for reviewing later. It's not very complex but it's already helped me out a ton. I'd love to get some feedback from others.

Android Studio / Intellij Tip of the Day: tools:attribute

If you have ever entered some testing text in a TextView to see how it looks in the previewer, then this is for you.
For any attribute in the xml that has the pattern 'android:something="value"', you can add a new attribute named 'tools:something="value"' and it will be picked up by the previewer but ignored in your app. Then you can leave default values that makes sense to visualize the layout without impacting the final build. 

Two things that you should check using the tools namespace:
  1) Text that will be set at runtime (so that you don't try to visualize an empty layout)
  2) Stuff that is dynamically changed later (e.g. visibility)

To configure the tools namespace, put this in the root tag of your layout (under the android xmlns):
  xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"

Anyone know how to adjust the 'recents' title text color for an app on Android 5.0? I can't seem to find any documentation or styling guides for it, though I have seen a few apps do it. 

Basically, I'd like to change the default title text on those from black/dark to white to fit in with the primary color that's being used.

Uploaded new version of DigiWatch for #AndroidWear   to include support for setting watch face text color, text dimming modes, and an option to include seconds - all feedback and ideas generated from users already using the app. 

What else would you add?

Watch face I made hit ~200 installs today (Day 2) - which now bypasses my other app that's been out for two years or so?

My first Watch face app, offers some customization for fonts, date, background color, dimming, and more. Would love to hear what the Wear community has to say.


All of the watch settings can be configured on the watch entirely separate of the phone app (which is basically there for feedback and easy access for the user) via the "Preferences" app with the DigiWatch icon on the Wear 'Start' screen. I didn't like having to have my device always connected for my phone to make changes to the interface.

Thanks for your time and I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

(My personal favorite is Roboto Thin font and teal background with text shadow)
