No matter whether you are a mobile developer of Android or iOS, your ultimate goal is definitely to publish your apps on Google Play or App Store. Before submitting apps for review, you need to attach some screenshots used for promotion. Furthermore, you can record screen video in order to make a deep impression. In this article, I will illustrate how to use free and commercial tools to record and edit videos for mobile apps on macOS and Windows.
When creating an Android library for distribution, besides the class package, source code and documentation are also needed in order to assist developers. Although Eclipse is convenient that you just need to right-click on the project and choose export to generate Javadoc and JAR file, more and more Android developer gets started to use Android Studio instead of Eclipse ADT. In this tutorial, l will show you how to pack and attach Java documentation and source code in Android Studio from scratch.
When making third party libraries and SDKs for Android development, you could build so files, jar files, or aar files. I prefer providing aar files for distribution since aar file is a simple zip file which includes so files, jar files, and other resources.
Last week, Android Developers Blog posted an article – An update on Eclipse Android Developer Tools. It announced that Google will end development and official support for the Android Developer Tools (ADT) in Eclipse at the end of the year. Many developers have been using Eclipse to develop Android applications with ADT for many years. Someone may be reluctant to get started with a new IDE from scratch, though, it is worth spending time on the new tool if it is more powerful and efficient than Eclipse. As Google said, they will deliver a great experience on a unified development environment and make developers productive. Since I’ve been playing Android Studio for a few days, I’d like to share my experiences.
