With a very simple and intuitive interface, Cinemadroid allows you to browse movie showtimes for the whole week in all theaters of your city. Browse showtimes by date, by hour, by movies, or by theatres...even by distance !
Mark your favorite showtimes to retrieve them, and send them to friends by mail or SMS. With a single click, add movies showtimes to your agenda.
Long clicks on showtimes, movies or theatres, will redirect to a web page giving more detailled informations like reviews, an overview of the movies, details about actor/actresses, and much more.

RoboSpice is an Open Source Android Library that eases writing asynchronous network requests.
GitHub repo : https://github.com/octo-online/robospice
RoboSpice motivations is an in-depth look at Android features related to asynchronous background tasks execution. This will explain :
* Why AsyncTasks are basically flawed
* Why Loaders work well, and why they don't fit when it comes to networking
* The basics of RoboSpice capabilities
This app is largely inspired by various questions on Stack Over Flow and aims to be a pedagogical introduction to RoboSpice, a brand new way to write asynchronous network requests.
Pinch, zoom and move inside a Mandelbrot fractal computed in an Android service...
RoboSpice has been designed to perform network requests asynchronously. This app demonstrates it can also be used in "offline" mode for tasks not related to the network.
You can find the library on GitHub :
There are some cases where application needs to provide more complex interactions that usuals, or new ones, not covered by Android UI Guidelines.
RoboDemo eases creating showcases / explaining / demonstrating of such activities to users.
It will display an overlay activity to illustrate the Activity under showcase. The explanations consist of a serie of
points to click on and a text. The Activity under showcase is dimmed and the showcase highlights some transparent area where
the user has to click.
Creation of DemoActivity is straightforward, have a look at the sample to put in place RoboDemo in your own app :
1. create a DemoActivity, using a custom DrawAdapter
2. transmit widget positions and texts to display during showcase to the DemoActivity from the Activity under showcase.
RoboDemo will ease all those steps and you will just have a few lines of code to add to your project.
