A developer tool : AndroidXRef

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 06 february 2013 - no comments

The Android source code is full of information, and I never spend a week without having to find a piece of code in there. The problem with it is that I had to download the git repo, and to use my OS's search to find the relevant piece of code.

Not anymore, thanks to AndroidXRef, a search engine for the Android Open Source Project. Although it's still in beta, it is very usefull to find information on how things are implemented in Android.

A developer tool : Device Art Generator

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 14 november 2012 - no comments

The Android Developper website contains lots of hidden pages, which I discover kind of randomly.

Today I discovered the Promoting section, and especially the Device Art Generator page.

This page lets you embed screenshots (or any image) into a picture of a real Android Nexus device. It even adds a shadow beneath the device, and a glare on the screen over your image. Ideal to create promotional image of your apps !
