  • Nice. Quick upload. Thanks Phil . Posted via Android Central App
  • Welcome! Posted via Android Central App
  • I enjoy a quick turnaround from the live broadcast! Posted via Android Central App
  • Listening to the podcast as I type this. Jerry, what's stopping Google from forcing developers from using best practices?
    Posted via Android Central App on my Note 3. {going to have to listen to the podcast more often. This is my first and it's extremely informative.} ➰
  • Nothing is stopping them. Traditionally Google has been very permissive with developers, but they could mandate that developers have until a set date to have their apps updated to the latest API or they will be removed. I'm actually glad they don't, and let us choose which apps are worth keeping on our phones and tablets ourselves.
  • Thank you Jerry for clarifying SD "affair" even more ! Posted via Android Central App

  • You're welcome :) I'm glad we could take the time to talk about it, and that someone got something useful from it.
  • Android Central Podcast FTW! Posted via my SPARK enabled Sprint LG G2, with 32GBs of internal memory and no sdcard. (Bring on 4.4.2, I can handle it.)
  • I was glad you clarified the issue. Also glad I waited for 4.4.2 before I put a sd card in my Note3.
    Awesome AC.
  • Thanks for a great podcast! I listen every week just not live.
    About your Drive segment: I use drive and docs for all of my projects. If they'd have separated them I'd not even closely get the same structure that I have right now: All files that belong to a particular project now rest in that project folder, docs documents, word documents and everything else. In your way they'd be separated and so much more messy, at least for me. :-)
  • Great podcast! I watch it every Friday night and its a great way to start the weekend ! Posted via Android Central App
  • Just a heads up, Best Buy price matches Amazon if they're cheaper. As long as it's shipped and sold by Amazon. Posted via Android Central App
  • Cool stuff! Keep 'em coming ;)
