AndroidArduinoLEDControl: Android project and Arduino sketch file for controlling 3 different LEDs attached to an Arduino board from an Android device.

AndroidAutoMedia: Demo for creating a navigation and playback architecture for Android Auto's media items.

AndroidAutoMessenger: Uses the Android Auto API to display notifications and receive voice feedback from users.

AndroidTVAsteroidBelt: Example of using OpenGL and the Android TV controller to make a basic Asteroids game. The tutorial for this demo can be found on Binpress -

AndroidTVMediaPlayer: A demo media project for the AndroidTV.

AndroidWearDigitalWatchFace: Example of using a digital watch face on an Android Wear device using the official API

Animations: Example of using the new animation features in Android L. Goes over ripples, animated UI widgets, circular reveal, activity transitions and shared element activity transitions.

AppCompatToolbar: Demo of implementing the Toolbar from the AppCompat support library as a replacement for the standard built in actionbar.

Chromecast: Demo of using Android as a Chromecast sender application for playing an online resource on a television.

CustomDrawableStates: Implementation of custom drawable states in Android in order to extend past the standard 'pressed', 'active', etc.

Daydream: Utilizes the Daydream Android service to display quotes pulled from a server.

EventDrivenHierarchicalViews: Example of using a container view with an update method to force all children views to update.

Flashlight: Can't be an Android developer without making a flashlight app, right?

FordAppLinkAudio: Uses Sync AppLink to play a live online audio stream through Ford's vehicle audio systems.

Gallery: Displays a grid of thumbnails that can be clicked to show a larger version of an image. Also allows the larger detailed version of the image to be swiped in order to show additional images in the gallery.

GeoFencing: Demo of creating a geofence and posting a notification whenever a user enters or exits the area.

Google Maps: Basic implementation of the Google Maps fragment that allows the user to place markers and display street addresses.

IconColorization: Goes over using Picasso to change the color of drawables programatically.

JobScheduler: Demo of a simple JobScheduler from Android Lollipop to set up periodic background tasks.

MediaSessionwithMediaStyleNotification: Example of using a media session with the MediaStyle notification for Android Lollipop. These notifications are used for lock screen media controls.

NavigationDrawer: An example of using the navigation drawer in an activity to load fragments. Also an example of Square's Otto library for firing events from a list to the activity.

Notifications: Demo of different options available in a standard notification from the Android OS.

NotificationsCustomLayout: Creates a custom expanded layout for Jellybean+ that uses a service to perform actions based on notification button clicks.

ProductFlavorsandResources: Uses Gradle and the resource structure of Android to demonstrate creating multiple apps from the same code base.

RandomKittyMuzei: Plugin for Muzei that displays a new random cat image every hour from a remote source as a device wallpaper.

SensorList: Gathers a list of all hardware sensors available on the device, and displays the values that they produce in real time.

SilenceRingerWidget: Sample code for building a widget that silences the phone (including on Lollipop) with one button press.

StaggeredGridView: Sample app using Etsy's StaggeredGridView library -

StayAwake: Using the official Android Wear SDK that came out a couple days ago, I wrote an app that lets users select a time interval that vibrates the Wear on their wrist whenever the timer ends, then repeats. The goal is to help keep drivers alert on long drives.

StreetView: Implements the new Google Street View feature.

VideoPlayer: Native video player for playing remote content.

WearFaceWithOptions: Example of using the official Wear watchface API to make an analog watch face with a selection screen to change properties of the displayed face via the DataLayer API

WearCustomWatchFace: DEPRECATED: Left for archival purposes. Creates a custom watch face for the Android Wear with a settings activity. Uses an undocumented and no longer supported API. Please see WearFaceWithOptions for how to do this properly.

WearDevelopersPreviewNotifications: Examples of possible notifications using the Google Wear developer preview.

WearMessageApi: Demonstration of communication between a smartphone and Android Wear device through the Wearable Message API. Article describing the demo can be found at
