Killer Way to Show a List of Items in Android Collection Widget

In the earlier versions of Android, app widgets could only display views like TextView, ImageView etc. But what if we want to show a list of items in our widget? For example, showing the list of temperature information for the whole next week. Collection widgets were introduced in Android 3.0 to provide this additional benefit. Collection widgets support ListView, GridView and StackView layouts.

Today, I am going to help you understand how the collection widget works. We are going to build an app widget for a Todo app. Collection widgets will be used to display the list of pending tasks.

Editorial: Is It the End of an Era for Windows?

The world of mobile has just passed an important milestone: Android is now the world's most popular operating system for accessing the internet. Research carried out by analytics firm StatCounter has found that in the month of March 2017, internet usage on Android surpassed internet usage on Windows. Yet StatCounter's CEO, Aodhan Cullen, was ecstatic: This is a milestone in technology history and the end of an era. [...] It marks the end of Microsoft’s leadership worldwide of the OS market which it has held since the 1980s. It also represents a major breakthrough for Android which held just 2.4% of global internet usage share only five years ago. Android is indeed making enormous leaps in the wider IT space, seducing millions of new users every year. Android has provided a viable platform for the world to access the internet. The shift to mobile has not been uniform accross the globe: In Europe, Android has just has 23.6% of the market share; in Africa it owns 53.5% (versus 35% for Windows), in Asia, 52.2% (versus 29.2% for Windows).
