Android Developer Labs Melbourne 2012 – Lessons Learnt

I recently attended the Android Developer Labs in Melbourne, which featured talks on how to improve your apps appearance and quality, as well as to show the changes in Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich.

Android Beam looks to be interesting and I’ve been racking my brains trying to figure out a use for it now!

It was also good to see Google talking on piracy and methods to combat it. The talk on this was certainly interesting.

As a result, there is a big release of Fetch That Number on the horizon with call logs, search and support for tablets (including search services for devices without telephony) and extra large screen sizes such as the Galaxy Nexus. I have also worked to provide some other Ice Cream Sandwich/Honeycomb features such as the Action Bar, utilising the Fragments framework and the new Holo theme.
