HowFarNow is an app I wrote. As you drive, it automatically sends text updates of your distance from a specific destination to a recipient from your contacts list.
I find it easy to forget that the “Guideline” element in a ConstraintLayout requires a value from 0 to 1 for its “layout_constraintGuide_percent” attribute:
<android.support.constraint.Guideline android:id="@+id/center_guideline" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:orientation="vertical" android:visibility="visible" app:layout_constraintGuide_percent="0.50" />
Don’t people usually think of numbers between 0 and 100 when they hear the word “percent”?
Android Studio 3.1.2’s layout designer does not seem to warn or complain if you use a value above 1 (e.g. “50”). But when I did that, the layout behaved unexpectedly.
Sorry. The Google Play Store has informed me that my ad-free, free, non-profit avocado browser app for Android violated the terms and conditions of the store. They have suspended the app.
I meant neither to offend nor to exploit UC Riverside’s excellent avocado database. I only wanted to make it available in a more convenient format for mobile devices. I wish the fine team that created and maintains the UCR Avocado database all the best. I encourage anyone from that UCR team who is interested in having UCR take ownership of the app’s Android Studio project and source code to contact me to facilitate a transfer. Cheers.
Moving on …
