Android Police now supports Google AMP, and you'll love it even if you hate AMP

Accelerated Mobile Pages, or 'AMP' for short, is a project Google has been working on for a few years that makes it easier for sites to create faster mobile experiences. You've probably seen most of your favorite sites add support for AMP over the past year or two, and now you can count Android Police (your favorite site, obviously) among them!

Android Police has a new and improved image gallery

You probably already know that clicking any image in an Android Police post will open the gallery view. But the feature had a few problems - you couldn't zoom in, and it didn't fill the entire screen. We have now updated the gallery to fix these issues, and added a few new features!

Android Police has switched to HTTPS

The whole web is slowly marching towards HTTPS, especially since browsers like Chrome are starting to shame HTTP-only sites. After years of readers asking why we haven't already done so, I'm proud to announce that Android Police now supports HTTPS! If you're wondering what exactly that is, or why it matters, read on.

The most (and least) popular devices used to browse Android Police in 2017

Last August, I published a list of the most and least popular smartphones and tablets used on Android Police. That post was surprisingly popular - and I've had repeated requests for a follow-up. Now that well over a year has passed, I think the time is right for a new installment, and one spanning a far greater time period than the month-long data set I used to compile the last version.

This time, I'll be showing you which devices were the most popular across the whole of 2017. And, of course, I'll show you some of the outliers, to give you a sense of how some devices have fallen (or never grown) from the ranks.

What we use, 2017 edition: The stuff Jordan can't live without


So here we are already elbows-deep into 2017. Let me start off by saying that I love this job — I work with and I have met some great and intelligent people. By some miracle, I have earned the "right" to write up one of these posts. Now is your chance to see into the other side of your screen to get a glimpse of how I bring you such profound content.

Saying goodbye to Android Police and hello to Google

Sometimes telling my own story is a challenge. So, after more than 5 years at AP, figuring out what to include in this post and how to write it hasn't been easy. But in the interest of eliminating suspense, I’ll give you the news up front:

I'm joining Google as part of the Design Relations team!

Android Police has been a big part of my life since I first started talking to Artem about contributing back in 2011. I won’t spell out the whole story here - if you want all the gory details I’ll tell you over coffee. But being part of the AP team has given me innumerable opportunities for new experiences, exploration, expression, and friendship.

Have You Checked Out Our New-And-Improved YouTube Channel? You Should! (And Subscribe To It)

Guys, it's time we had a talk. There's... someone else. On our YouTube channel. His name is Mark Burstiner, and you've probably noticed some of the videos he's made for us in the past month (aren't they awesome?).

We know that, over the years, many of you have asked us here at Android Police to do videos. We pondered this a great many times, and a great many times we sort of tried, then stopped, then started again - and the quality just wasn't where we wanted it to be. Making videos is hard, it takes a skilled person to really put in the time and effort to do it right, and that person just hadn't come along - until now.

Saying Goodbye: After Five Years, I Bid Farewell To Android Police

Wow. What a journey this has been.

A little over five years ago, my first post — a [terrible] app review — was published on Android Police. The site was only a year old back then, and we were lucky to get 10 comments. That post had eight.

I still clearly remember the day that Artem asked me to come write for AP full-time — I was working a totally different type of job that I didn't like in the slightest, and I had done two app reviews for AP. I was at work when he messaged me on Hangouts (well, technically it was Google Talk back then) to tell me that the former full-time writer (yep, we only had one at the time) wasn't coming back, so he needed someone as a replacement.
