I was wondering why Chrome suddenly looked prettier today.
Version 52 of Google Chrome is now rolling out to all users via Google’s stable channel with the usual bug fixes and security patches. For Mac, the update notably adds Material Design to the …

Inkwire Beta

Step 1) You MUST join this community. Otherwise the beta will be unavailable to you.

Step 2) Opt into the beta by clicking the next link.
https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.koushikdutta.inkwire

Step 3) Download the beta. Sometimes this link takes a while after joining the beta to become available:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.inkwire

Mostly just looking for bug/crash reports and feedback at the moment. There's still a good amount of work to be done. Please leave bug reports in this forum. They are super helpful. If something crashes, tell me what you were doing when it crashed, and what phone you are using. Logcats are great too.

Since this is a closed beta, you won't actually be able to easily help people with the app yet, as it won't be available to everyone on the Play Store. If you have a 2 Android devices on hand, or can convince a friend to sign up for the beta too, that is the way to go for testing purposes.

The final version will obviously be freely available on the Play Store. One of the showcase features allows you to send a access/share sticky link to another user. It will install the app, and share the screen with just a couple clicks. No access codes necessary. Can't demo this while in beta :)

Anyone else getting stuck at "Waiting for Debugger" on new versions of Android Studio or is it just me?
I'm able to work around it by attaching to the process, but still, annoying.

Uninstalling apps on Android could be a bit less clunky.

Long press hold
Drag + Drop
Modal transition animation
Confirmation
Modal uninstall

Then do it again!

+Koushik Dutta​ Did you consider the possibility that Android cannot uninstall apps like iOS because Apple has a strong patent on it? Apple might let it slide for smaller app developers but not Google

Inkwire - Firebase Dynamic Links

In case you missed it, Inkwire is my upcoming remote assistance app.

Anyways, Firebase introduced a "Dynamic Links" feature at Google I/O. This lets you deep link into an app, before the app is even installed. Dyamic Links enabled me to build one of the headline features of Inkwire, which IMHO makes the setup experience super seamless.

You can send your friend a link that requests them to share their screen. If they don't have Inkwire installed, it prompts them to install it, and then upon opening the app, it immediately starts your screen share session. No need to pass around access codes or fiddle with anything else. Check out the video below, the Android on the right doesn't have Inkwire installed when it receives the request to share its screen.

Inkwire Beta (now available):

Random tidbit. Here's the moment I found my inspiration:
