Behind the apps: Amazed

This week's developer video features Jason Tomlinson of Hands-On Mobile. He wrote Amazed, an application open sourced in the apps-for-android project. Things Jason mentions in the videos include:

  • Amazed was built primarily to get familiar with the accelerometer. This helped him in his work on Guitar Hero® World Tour Mobile for Android.
  • Using traceview to track down which methods take the most CPU cycles.

This and other Android developer videos can be found here.
