Cool things this week:

  • Caching negative API requests – be careful, you might cache DNS errors
  • Maven with Android doesn’t work that well for us
  • We got two tablets communicating with each other.
  • Blocking HDMI output from device is complex (manufacturer/device specific)
  • We got upload retries to work, just like how the native Messaging app works

Headaches this week:

  • HTC legend crashing with layer list background
  • Debug keys expiring
  • You need to save WebView when tablet rotates
