Android and Apple Device Frame Generator

Android and Apple Device Frame Generator

Shortly I was looking for a frame generator where I can put in a screenshot from iPhone or iPad and then automatically a screenshot with the device's frame is created.

Something identically has already been existing for Android for a longer time, for iOS I needed to dig a little bit deeper, however after a couple of blog and stackoverflow postings I discovered two nice solutions for Apple and one that is already popular for Android.

The first solution for a Apple frame generator can be found directly on the Apple developer site, however the integration of the screenshot needs to be done with Photoshop. The second solution is straight forward and is not for Apple only, it is a Android frame generator too.

For Android device's only a frame generator can be found on the Android Asset Studio homepage a really nice place for discovering cool tools. A look onto this page is really worth seeing. 


cheers,
Chris

Check Android Application resumed/paused

Check Android Application resumed/paused

Time goes by so fast, I was a little bit surprised to see that my last post was one month ago. So let's go..

Sometimes it is neccessary to get notfied if the application is sent to the background or recoveres back to foreground. As I started developing apps on iOS I was used that there is a central mechanism to check wheter the app is created, destroyed, started, stop etc. However in Android this central functionality is missing. So we need to implement a little workaround by implementing a base class every Activity inherits from.

For those who already use API level 14 or higher, the approach proposed by mjbshaw should be prefered unless follow the example shown in the implementation part below.

Facebook - FQL - Page Friend Likes

Facebook - FQL - Page Friend Likes

For the new project I currently working on, I need to focus on Facebook's Android SDK in more detail as I did in the past. A couple of months ago I had to integrate Facebook functionalities like login/logout, image uploading and status posting for the Next Liberty Theatre - Photo Component - it was not a big throw. In this new project the general focus is on lcoation-based augmented reality in combination with social media like Facebook.
