Introducing Fitness Explorer

As a fitness enthusiast and technology geek I've been using the Google Fit Android app to heavily track and record my fitness activities. With it's proprietary low battery step counting service it keeps track of my steps on my phone, without a fitness tracker! Google Fit is great, for recording my fitness activities that is. But when I need an quick and easy aggregated view of my fitness history it was difficult to easily find this information in Google Fit.

What's New in the Android Studio 2.0 Preview

Google recently released the Android Studio 2.0 Preview with some compelling new features for developers. One of the biggest and most welcome changes is the improved emulator that comes included with the preview. The new instant run ability and faster build times also offer nice quality of life improvements for developers by allowing them to make code changes and see them reflected in their running applications much faster. I decided to test out the new IDE with some of our existing samples to get some experience with the new features and see if I encountered any roadblocks.

Coming Soon: Xuni Android for Native Mobile Development

Xuni's collection of native, cross-platform mobile controls is about to get even more flexible: not only can you still employ code-once methods using Xamarin.Forms and Visual Studio, but we're adding a new product called Xuni Android, for native Android app development. When the new release drops August 19, you'll be able to create native Android apps in Java with the IDE of your choice (Eclipse or Android Studio).
