(dev/ramblings) Optimizing Android apps with NEON
Posted on 2013-07-07, 6 comments, 92 +1's, imported from Google+/Chainfire

The past few weeks I've spent a lot of time optimizing quite a few DSLR Controller routines. Aside from doing some things in smarter (less expensive) ways, rescheduling code, and parallelizing where possible to make more efficient use of multi-core chips, there's also a lot of hand-crafted NEON code in there.

When faster code makes your app slower

I've been doing a lot of code optimization the past week or so, and it has made me run into some interesting issues.  One of them has been that faster code could actually lead to lower performance, and slower devices running faster code faster than faster devices.

I've never been a big fan of Android's Spinner widget (aka dropdown button or combobox) as it is pretty annoying to work with, and on now ancient Android versions they somehow just never came out the size you expected them to be (sucks for alignment) or would cut off (oversized) content in less than ideal places.

Yes, I'm getting tired of it as well. But the S4 is a tricksy ~~hobbit~~ device and it just keeps on ruining my day.

Apparently, Chrome is getting annoyed.

It appears there's been an update out for a while now, but I've not restarted Chrome in ... weeks? Over the span of some days, the menu button has gone from green, through orange, to red.
