Integrating Google+ in your android app, you can create a simple authentication process where user can directly login to your app using their Google+ credentials. We can also fetch various user information such as user email, name, profile info etc. through this process. Other than authentication process, we can use google+ integration for fetching friend list, sharing content from G+ and posting purposes also. Google maintains an interesting symbiotic relationship with its users, especially users who generate content (UGC) that Google makes use of. Some of that content is just indexed by Google (Search, Maps).
I wanted to create a nice search box with autocomplete results dropdown in the ActionBar. I could have used the SearchView widget but I didn't want to create a searchable activity and all the necessary overhead. Instead I used a more lightweight approach with AutoCompleteTextView. I'll explain here the steps needed to be done in order to make it work.
Sometimes we want from our application, to provide suggestions to the user, when he/she types in an editable text field. We can do that via AutoCompleteTextView, that gives suggestions automatically and display them to a drop down menu, from which the user can choose a preferred item. Moreover, Android give us the opportunity to input multiple items than only one, in the editable text field by using MultiAutoCompleteTextView class. Through this example, the user is allowed to ender one and/or multiple items in an edit text, where suggestions automatically are displayed on the screen.
In this tutorial we will explain how to work with Android Toast with example. The example below demonstrates the usages of simple and customized toast in Android.
1. Toast is a solution for android developer when required to notify user about an operation without expecting any user input.
2.This provides a small popup that displays for a small period and fades out automatically after timeout. Sometimes developers use this for debugging.
3. For example, some of the app shows “Press back once to Exit” message when pressed back button in home page. Another real-time example is Gmail app, It shows a Toast, when a mail message is saved to draft.
This Android tutorial is to help create tab layout with swipe views in an Android application. Swipe views in a tab layout are for convenience for the user. Swipe adds a real world feel to the tabs. In a previous tutorial we saw about creating a tab layout in an Android application. In an another tutorial we saw about creating swipe views in Android. Now all we are going to do is combine the both and create a simple app that has tabs and swipe able views.
Success with mobile apps is often a numbers game — the more users, the more successful an app will be. Some of the ways to increase users, such as localizing to other languages, require advance planning. If an app has been prepared for localization, then translating it to several new languages can be an easy way to make the app accessible to a huge number of new customers.
