    Bringing up your Android Dev Environment from Scratch

    As (bad) luck would have it, the solid state drive with my Linux partition died the week of Thanksgiving. I have backups of the data, so I haven’t lost anything other than time. I used that partition for testing and building the Android platform sources and that’s about it. It’s aggravating to lose the SSD, but not devastating. All my important files are stored elsewhere. After the hard drive died, I needed to get the latest code for Android 4.2.1 that came out in late November. Instead of going through the hassles of installing a

    Introducing Eric Cloninger, mobile Product Manager

    Hello Everyone, I’m Eric Cloninger and I’ll be your guide to all things Android at Klocwork. This is a section of the Klocwork site that has been quiet in the past, but we’re about to take off. Please make sure that your seats are fully upright and your tray tables are in the locked position because we’re going places. It’s no coincidence I used an airplane metaphor. I love to travel.

    Pre-Branding in Mobile

    The year 2008 was a key year for mobile applications. In that year, Apple released its iOS SDK in March and launched the App Store with the release of iOS 2.0 in July. Let’s call it the start of the Mobile Gold Rush. Now in this mobile gold rush, there are hundreds of thousands of applications and amongst them many are bound to have the same idea and the same purpose. How does one app shine, while others won’t even get visits to their description pages? Let me tell you about an experience I had

    A new Android freshly baked!

    In my last post, I talked about some of the reasons why I started developing Android apps. The new Android 2.3 Gingerbread is even better than Froyo. I’m talking about a whole new Nerdy and the Droid factory. With Gingerbread released and rolled out on the new flagship phone, the Google Nexus S, the developers’ wait is over. Some of the new features and functionalities baked within Gingerbread are: 1.    More power under the hood My Nexus One lasts me about a day running Froyo. Android is now way smarter in managing its electrons with

    Why Android is such a developer magnet!

    The open-source, Linux-based and hardware-independent Android mobile OS, with the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread release is giving mobile developers a whole new ball court to play in. Android is the fastest growing mobile OS among its competitors and with its share in the Smartphone user market growing, Android is attracting more and more enthusiastic developers. Being a Java developer I jumped right into Android development about a year ago. There is a whole list of reasons why I chose to develop Android apps over other platforms and here are some of them: 1.    Low development

  • Android apps buggy?

    on Dec 22, 09 • by Alen Zukich • with 6 Comments

    We are starting to see a large amount of Android phones such as the Droid and Xperia X10 (see a review here) and the (soon-to-be-released) first Google phone, Nexus One. With this, expect the number of apps to increase significantly. So with the increased number of apps, do these developers have the right tools to find and fix bugs? Take a look at the leader of phone applications-iPhone. There have been several posts (here and here) that recommend using the Clang static analyzer. Apple has taken it one step further, apparently rejecting iPhone apps that
