Introducing Bothie2!

Now it's a breeze to put yourself in your pictures.

Now you can be in all your holiday snaps! Bothie2 is a camera app that takes two photos for each shot -- one from the front, and one from the back -- and lets you combine them so that all your shots can have a personal touch, whatever you're looking at.
  • Take your main photo or inset photo with the tap of a button.
  • Zoom and pan your main photo.
  • Drag your inset into the sweet spot.
  • Not happy with either? Just take it again until you're happy! 
  • Done? Save your photo or share it to anyone!
Bothie2 is available on Google Play right now.

Google Play Services with Android Studio

Edit: This post is extremely deprecated -- with prejudice! It was written in an era when Google Play Services were not well integrated with Android Studio project work, and Android Studio itself was in its infancy.

This is a very quick guide to incorporating Google Play Services with your new Android Studio project.

Edit: [16:20 22/05/2013] I'll investigate the runtime NoClassDefFound error reported in the comments, and follow up later!

Edit: [23:17 27/05/2013] I'm coming to the conclusion that - as many have already pointed out - you really do need to include the entire library project in your solution. I'll post an update once I've fully tested this. 

In the meantime, please consider the advice below to be deprecated!

The first thing to say is: I fully expect the advice and guidance about how to work in Android Studio to change over time. Android Studio is in early access preview right now, and I'll bet my bottom dollar (is that a thing?) that over time it becomes m…

What's the best way to handle the Android camera?

This article is adapted from a response I gave on Reddit to the question "What's the best way to handle the camera?" in r/androiddev...

The Camera and Camera2 APIs are far from painless to use. If you've ever written an app that uses the camera (embedded in an activity or not), you've almost certainly come up against orientation issues, stretched previews, or weird quirks that change from manufacturer to manufacturer...

There are three good libraries out there that can save you from many common pitfalls:
Google's (unofficial) CameraView library.Mark Murphy's CWAC-Cam2 library.Dylan McKintyre's CameraKit for Android library. Each has different strengths. If you don't have time to read this whole article, here's a quick rule of thumb:
If you want to capture photos in a full-screen preview, but you don't want to have to rely on the native camera app, then use CWAC-Cam2.If you want to embed a preview into your Activity, use CameraKit. It's f…

Manually Testing Web Services in Visual Studio

The first time you debug a web service after creating it, Visual Studio will launch the WCF Test Client - a very useful piece of kit - and preload it with the details of your service.

In this article, we'll look first at testing your WCF service, and then an all-too-familiar issue that might crop up and spoil your fun!

Using the WCF Test Client


The WCF Test Client looks a bit like SoapUI, and is pretty similar in purpose: It allows you to connect to a service, enter some parameters and submit them to any given service method to see what you get.

After the first time you run the WCF Client, Visual Studio will forget all about launching it again until you make significant changes to it - which means when you subsequently hit f5 or choose Debug, it won't run again. It's worth knowing how to bring it up...

You can find it again by launching the Visual Studio Command Prompt, and launching wcftestclient.exe from there.

Once connected, making use of it is as simple as filling in …
