Keep you updated about new Android stuff

It exists a lot of different sources to get great tips and what's new in the android ecosystem.
This protip will try to list them and explain to you how I manage to keep myself updated with the latest content.
I want this protip to be collaborative so please if you know other resources, comment at the end and I'll add them.


Redesign of old apps the HOLO way


Official channels

A resume of what happened in the android world this week, often you'll already know about everything but sometimes you can find an interesting library and/or article you've missed

Social network


  • @commonsguy : protips
  • @cyrilmottier : Android Google Developer Expert 2012, post a lot of little protips
  • @JakeWharton : author of ActionBarSherlock and ViewPagerIndicator, post update about its projects and Square's one.


(thanks @lehtimaeki!)

Android team:

My personal technique

Most of the devs who wrote on the blogs I've listed above are on Twitter and post frequently using #androiddev. If you check the androiddev hashtag once or twice a day, you should get all the new and fresh stuff (usually two or three interesting links a day).

I'd definitely recommend following Android stuff on Google+ if you really want to be part of the discussion. There's a really active community and the discussion is very useful.

Thanks for the mention :)

@lehtimaeki Good point! I'm not really into G+ right now but I often see good debate about android dev, do you have some G+ profile to share ?

@florianmski Sure. There's of course all the Android dev advocates who are very active there:

Then there are hundreds of Android devs who actively participate to discussions with tons of experience. They are too numerous to be listed here but here are few:
