Android R: A Rough Start
I had hoped to have a first version of Elements of Android R out soon. However, so far, the only Android R feature that I have found that works as advertised is the one-time permission grant. Everything else that I have tried – from “All Files Access” to raw paths to bubbles – has failed. And I’m spending time fighting regressions to boot (though, technically, I suppose the bubbles problem is a regression…).
I will continue poking at Android R. However, on the whole, I am waiting for DP2, and I will hopefully be able to write more positive things about Android R by then.
