A lot about Android is about the apps and a lot of times people don't know the development and story behind the developer's hard work. So it's great that Google is providing some great insight that details the origin behind some popular apps. In this series, we give focus to imeem and Amazon, two music based apps that are growing increasingly popular with Android users.

Here are the highlights:

  • Completing imeem took around 6 weeks
  • imeem utilizes SQL lite databases, regular expressions, and web service API calls
  • Amazon uses Apache HTTP Client, ListView, MediaPlayer, and ViewGroups
