Why Toothpick and not Simple Guice with Butterknife? I used Roboguice since 1.1 and when they decided to no continue with Roboguice 3 just simple remove the Robo from Guice and start using Guice 4.0 and only inject the Context/Application when needed. If I want the bind view feature I simple use Butterknife. Found Guice 4.0 really simple to use if you only stick DI to your classes and Android Context only. Thanks!
