Looks awesome and promising! Might give it a try, maybe a brand new personal app for this?!
We just released a new mobile database. ObjectBox is designed for performance and easily outperforms any database we ever tested. It was a lot of work and fun to build it! Please share!

Finally we got the official support.
Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?

...but didn't want to download executables from some random warez site?

Good news this week:

These links will always return the adb/fastboot binaries currently shipping with Android Studio. No need to guess what the current version is, or update your own links: just follow these and get the latest binaries, direct from the source.

This is thanks to +Siva Velusamy and Kevin Quinn, not me.

There were a lot of great announcements at #io16 but a small gem from the Support Lib talk was the ability to create more succinct AnimatedVectorDrawables using a new XML bundle format.

Previously to create an AnimatedVectorDrawable you would need at least 3 xml files to specify it:

1. A VectorDrawable you're going to animate.
2. One or many Animators to run.
3. An animated-vector definition, essentially tying the drawable and animator(s) together.

The new bundle format lets you specify this in a single file. Here's an example:

Notice the aapt namespace and usage; at build time, aapt will create the separate resources for you (1 & 2 in the list above) and reference them in the animated-vector. This requires Build Tools 24+ (currently in RC) but the output is backward compatible.

The slides for the new talk Life without Fragments I just gave with +Eugenio Marletti​ at MCE are now available! As always, the static slides only tell half the story... We'll publish the fully animated deck soon. You don't want to miss on that!

A note about the lifecycle of a View/ViewGroup in Android.
I drew this Android Views lifecycle a while back for a presentation, seemed useful.  Is there a more formal diagram like this to show View/ViewGroup lifecycle?

Must-to-see and great talk about 60 fps on Android. #makebetterapps
Road to 60fps
Great talk by some of the FB folks on fast rendering for their news feed. Esp. like the tools / profiling talk about finding perf problems (towards the end).
