As an Android developer with Google Pixel device, I am seeking help to remove the annoying and potential handful downloading action of Chrome Browser, which is trying to download an apk file called "tourist.apk" when I open a website through Google now. I had cleared all browse history to ensure that it is not triggered by history links. But it could still be reproduced. The whole behavior looks very suspicious to me. First, the apk file that is downloading have no meaning for me. I would never ever download such file. Second, it will never finish the download, even at 100%. This means whenever I open Chrome again, it will re-download the whole thing, which would cost me several megabyte's data. Please refer to the screenshot of what's going on on my device and any suggestion will be appreciated. I reckon there must be some security loophole.

+Ian Lake, I would like to ask you some guidance to properly save some key-value paired server configuration data into cloud as seamlessly and automatically as possible. I have done a lot of research about using Google Drive API for android, DataBackup API, and Saved Game API . The Drive API is doable except that the app would require users to authorize it which makes it not automatically. The DataBackup API could be done automatically but it could not be guaranteed that it will work as certain device won't opt in this feature and there are saying that it is not stable. In regarding Saved Game API, I am developing a Utility App, it is not a game and we do not use any Google Account. Is there any other option that I could explore for a better experience? Any suggestion would be appreciated even there is no better option. So I could move on with one of the choices, which will probably be Google Drive API for Android as it is stable and only requires users to authorize once.

Colors, Drawables, & Theme Attributes

Just published my first blog post in 1.5 years (can't believe it's been so long)! It's a short one about the recently deprecated Resources getColor() and getDrawable() methods. There's a pop quiz at the end, so make sure you study up.

I'm about 95% done writing a second blog post about ThemeOverlays and AppCompat background tints as well... planning on publishing that one tomorrow night, so stay tuned. :D
