In general practice an Android developer use “HttpURLConnection” to use web services and do ant data communication over the internet. Its bit confusing as it gives an error to handle threads and Async tasks. So it makes the process too long cumbersome.
For quickly using data communication I prefer Volley library of android. Let’s learn more about it.

A few days back I was working on an offline application having an Image gallery. So the common feature which I needed for a user was to save gallery images in the device and Share those images in Whatsapp or other social media.
For that I read many tutorial and forums, after doing some study on how things work in ionic, I got to know that in the Ionic application we cannot save or share media applications assets files like images or PDF’s directly.

Using tab index attribute in HTML form fields a user can easily navigate to the next or previous field by merely using the keyboard. But after some presses, Tab index focus caret secretly goes to a new dimension where it becomes impossible to press tab to get back that caret guy in place. ultimately we use to move back caret guy in place.
So during a requirement where I wanted to trap carret guy in a wrapper so that even after continous tabbing caret we never be able to leave that defined wrapper. After defined at input field that will focus on first defined form field automatically.

The Ionic framework is best suited for the development of Hybrid apps, it provides ultimate and great features to remove that thin like to distinguish between Native and Hybrid apps. You can visit my previous post for another useful trick for Ionic optimizations.
In this post, we will discuss Template Caching technique which we can use in our Ionic applications, which optimizes the Ionic app to great extent. This will remove fluctuations which we face when we switch from one view to other as it preloads all view in advance.

Nowadays most of the mobile app developers moving towards hybrid apps which can be deployed on any platform without knowing any advanced languages. The best framework used to build hybrid apps is Ionic, which is gaining a lot of attention these days.
But if we compare a native and a hybrid, if may give you some performance lags as hybrid apps use web views. In latest OS systems like android, we can increase performance to a new level so that there will be nearly no difference in Hybrid apps.

Like native Android apps, we sometimes need a view, where list items can be loaded after user reached the bottom of all loaded list items. This behavior is recommended if we have a long list to load and we don’t want the user to tap next every time to view next set of list items.

During development of hybrid apps you hardly need to use Android Studio, and this gives a huge relief because you don’t need to start a heavy loaded application and wait to get it started from all cores . Thanks to CLI development integrated with ionic, a simple command and whoosh!!! your app is ready…

A few months back I was working on a project using Angular Material, believe me, guys angular Material is really an amazing framework which does not only create responsive apps with bootstrap structural design but it also adds a pinch of elegance to an application making it more beautiful to look at. It is gaining a lot of attention of developer due to a huge increasing in it’s demand.
Motion and ripple effects make my day…

Ionic Framework using AngularJS 1 is having some different type of input field styles like:
1) Placeholder Labels
2) Inline Labels
3) Stacked Labels
4) Floating Labels
5) Inset Forms
6) Input Icons
Documentation for these can be found here http://ionicframework.com/docs/components/#forms
But the style which I was looking for was a merge of both Floating labels plus Input Icons. There was not a way to use a blend of these anywhere. But after some CSS tweaking, I managed to achieve the piece I was looking for
