Who lives and who dies? Process priorities on Android
Pro-tip by +Ian Lake

With a finite amount of memory, process death is a natural part of your app’s lifecycle. Read our blog post https://goo.gl/sQmKPq to understand the process hierarchy Android uses to determine which apps live and which die.

We’ll talk through what it means to be a foreground process, how visible processes differ, the importance of being a service process for background work, and caching in the form of background and empty processes.

We've just released Android Studio 2.0 Beta 2 to the canary channel (and new Gradle plugin to jcenter.) If all goes well, we'll roll it out to the beta channel soon -- but we'd really appreciate some extra testing on this. We think we've fixed the main issues around the new Gradle plugin and instant run (we've fixed the big performance regression on full builds, dagger2 and annotation processor should work again, plus several other critical fixes.) As always, we appreciate your help in testing preview builds!

More details about the fixes in the release notes:

Making loading data lifecycle aware with Loaders
Pro-tip by +Ian Lake

Screen rotations or other configuration changes shouldn’t interrupt loading data for your UI or throw away the data you’ve already loaded. Loaders solve this problem by surviving configuration changes yet are automatically cleaned up when their associated Activity or Fragment is permanently destroyed, giving you the data loading lifecycle you really want: when you have data to show.

Check out our blog post (https://goo.gl/EhSPni) and the code samples included within for some examples on how you can load any type of data with the Loader framework.

SharedPreferences is your answer to simple storage
Pro-tip by +Joanna Smith

Most apps have some sort of user state that they’d like to keep track of. But many apps don’t store a lot of information. So if you don’t need to worry about internal/external storage, and you don’t want to put yourself through that, then you’ve got a friend in SharedPreferences. Check out the blog post (https://goo.gl/c8KUAF) to learn everything you need about those key-value pairs!

We've just pushed Android Studio 2.0 Preview 7 to the canary channel. This contains a number of bug fixes on top of preview 6, particularly in the Instant Run area (there is also a 2.0.0-alpha7 version of the Gradle plugin). This build also incorporates IntelliJ IDEA 15.0.3, which brings a number of critical IDE fixes from JetBrains.

Snackbar: The appropriate interruption

Alerts are pretty critical for communicating with your user. But it helps to know what is appropriate so that your users don’t hate you. Fortunately, there’s a simple answer: use a Snackbar (http://goo.gl/u2Znrv)!

But, for those nuanced cases where you want to choose between a Toast and a Snackbar, the design docs (http://goo.gl/AHUuwR) have pretty much every detail you could need. And if you really like being wrong, there’s always a Dialog! (http://goo.gl/eC306F)
But you’re better than that.

So watch the video, and read the blog post (https://goo.gl/zDEss9), and continue to #BuildBetterApps.

Firebase event listeners are Magic. As data is updated in Firebase, notifications are pushed to your Android app in the form of handy JSON encoded map data. While it’s nice to have all the plumbing wrapped up, if you’re not careful using this map can cause maintenance nightmares in your code.

Who lives and who dies? Process priorities on Android
Pro-tip by +Ian Lake

With a finite amount of memory, process death is a natural part of your app’s lifecycle. Read our blog post https://goo.gl/sQmKPq to understand the process hierarchy Android uses to determine which apps live and which die.

We’ll talk through what it means to be a foreground process, how visible processes differ, the importance of being a service process for background work, and caching in the form of background and empty processes.

How to properly handle audio interruptions
Pro-tip by +Joanna Smith

The system will never let your super-awesome podcast app play over a phone call (obviously), but you can bet your users will hate you if you don’t pause audio playback when they take a phone call. If that user hangs up to discover that they missed the last 12 minutes of the story, that’s on you.

So, use audio focus to communicate with the system. Let it know when you’re playing that podcast, and let it tell you when something higher-priority may be interrupting. Learn everything you’ll need to react to those audio focus states and create the best podcast app ever in our blog post (https://goo.gl/lyw4p5). (Or whatever audio makes your heart flutter.) Because that’s how you #BuildBetterApps.
