Every now and then, when I come back to Google+, I realize that it's a shame there's no writeable API for it ... :-(

Ensure your camera preview display matches the device orientation
Pro-tip by +Ian Lake

If you’re using the android.hardware.camera API, you’ll need to make sure that the camera preview in your app matches the device orientation using setDisplayOrientation() (http://goo.gl/TwfImf) - forget and your users might see an upside down preview! Good examples are the front camera on a Nexus 6 and the back camera on the new Nexus 5X and 6P.

Thankfully, you can use the result from two methods to get the correct rotation:
- Camera.getCameraInfo() (http://goo.gl/r5rETv) gives you information about the camera such as orientation and facing (front or back)
- activity.getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getRotation() (http://goo.gl/N7ZEYD) gets the rotation of the screen itself

After transforming the window rotation into a degree (see the Javadoc on setDisplayOrientation() for the full code), you’ll be able to find the final display orientation:

int result;
if (info.facing == Camera.CameraInfo.CAMERA_FACING_FRONT) {
  result = (info.orientation + degrees) % 360;
  result = (360 - result) % 360; // compensate the mirror
} else { // back-facing
   result = (info.orientation - degrees + 360) % 360;
}
camera.setDisplayOrientation(result);

This will ensure that the orientation of the camera sensor and the display stay in sync. If you’re handling orientation changes, make sure you reset the orientation when the device switches from portrait to landscape. And that’s all you need to do to #BuildBetterApps .

Note if you’re using Camera2, you’ll find something similar for CaptureRequest in JPEG_ORIENTATION (https://goo.gl/ny35DW).

Apple's official Swift repo has just merged "Port to Android"

Swift is fast becoming a write-once, run-many platform similar to PhoneGap and React. (Slight apples-to-oranges comparison but they all achieve the same end-goal of portable app deployment.)
What's in this pull request? This adds an Android target for the stdlib. It is also the first example of cross-compiling outside of Darwin: a Linux host machine builds for an Android target. Rele...

Hi folks! Some days ago I published my first ever Android libraries. One is for parsing RSS Feed and the other to get youtube videos from a desired channel .
Feel free to give a look and give me some advice so i can improve myself.

Here's the libraries:

Interesting bit to remember: it wasn't just Nokia to miss a mobile trend, but also Intel.

And it's quite funny that Nokia and Intel once united to fight back with Maemo/MeeGo/or-whatever-it-was-called :-)
