   developmentAppSecret = Your Development App Secret

   productionAppKey = Your Production App Key
   productionAppSecret = Your Production Secret

   # Toggles between the development and production app credentials

   # LogLevel is "VERBOSE", "DEBUG", "INFO", "WARN", "ERROR" or "ASSERT"
   developmentLogLevel = DEBUG
   productionLogLevel = ERROR

   # Notification customization
   notificationIcon = ic_notification
   notificationAccentColor = #ff0000

      <meta-data android:name="com.urbanairship.autopilot"

Sample Application

A sample application is available that showcases the majority of the features offered by the Urban Airship SDK. Before running the sample, copy the file in sample/src/main/assets/airshipconfig.properites.sample to sample/src/main/assets/airshipconfig.properties and modify the properties to match your application's config.

Sample Test

An automated test is available to test basic pushes, message center and in-app messages with the Sample application.

To run the test suite on an emulator or device with API 21+:

./gradlew connectedAndroidTest -Pandroid.testInstrumentationRunnerArguments.appKey="APP_KEY" -Pandroid.testInstrumentationRunnerArguments.masterSecret="MASTER_SECRET"
