I’ve been an android developer since Galaxy S1, but I am still learning to be a good developer. I’m always learning new techniques and improving beyond my own knowledge because there is always something new to learn and new libraries and techniques to discover.

In case you are an Android Developer and you’re wondering what you should learn next, here are some suggestions.

Have you ever wondered some of the top apps from financial, tools, games etc. etc in the Google Playstore contain ? I’ve decompile each apk and here are the most common libraries used.
