@Fcasoli -

System settings -> battery stats lists apps and various hardware / software subsystems, ordered by their battery consumption. Just watching the overall battery indicator in the status bar is not enough to know which it is... :)
it was this source to make clear that consumption was mainly the Screen -> animated screen saver  ;)

@Kostya, cool, so you are now using Session Identifiers or Session Tickets for TLS resumption (if supported by the server)?

The server is a VPS, but it's hosted on a dedicated server that I manage, which is completely underused in terms of resources. Plus, I pass the aesni CPU flag over to the VPS, which should help with SSL performance (not for the actual key exchange, but for the rest of the encrypted communication). This, plus Aqua now caching the session (i.e. no more unnecessary key exchanges) really helps! ;)

@doc - I don't know the internals, it's all Android Java classes at the level I'm dealing with. Since 4.1 they've switched to OpenSSL libraries (from Bouncy Castle crypto that was used before). That's all I know.

My VPS is also seriously underutilized -- keeps the promo web site nice and fast :)

@andrewilley -- I assume this is in the context of the smart folder, which combines messages from multiple accounts / folders?

Each folder has (and has had, since forever) a color label that is used in the smart folder. The colors are assigned at random, but you can change them. Please see the FAQ (link below) under Smart Folder.

Yes, in the Smart Folder view, where messages from multiple accounts can be seen.

I know about (and use) the little triangular coloured markers in Smart Folders, but they are not very easy to distinguish & separate lines with various coloured icons/sender thumbnails/etc nearby.

What I was asking for was an option to have a simple plain coloured background for the whole message area within the list (in the same way you can choose to highlight read/unread messages, although I don't happen to use that particular option). The background colour already chosen in Account Options > Assign Colour would be an ideal one to use, so all messages relating to one account could have the same background colour. (The small corner flashes could still be used to indicate different additional folders as well, giving the best of both worlds that way).

"+ Unread message count badge for recent Samsung devices (stock launcher: TouchWiz)."

That is *really* nice feature! TouchWiz has API for that or how did you do it?
Can you add support for launcher in Nexus devices? My Nexus 7 is waiting :D

@pyler --

On the icon badges -- it's near the top of my personal "why I hate developing for Android" list.

Standard Android doesn't support this (meaning stock launcher, and stock firmware). Most major manufacturers implemented it so their devices can be just like an iPhone.

( a typical conversation: "- What brand is your iPhone? // - It's a Samsung, why?" )

Each of those implementations is only for that manufacturer's own apps (built into the firmware), with no official documentation, an they're incompatible with each other (naturally!).

However, someone figured out how to use the undocumented functions for Samsung's TouchWiz and posted it somewhere. All three or five lines of code.

Samsung can block this feature for third party apps if they choose to. Or go in the opposite direction and document it (in theory). There is no way to tell.

And to reiterate -- stock Android (really, stock Android launcher) does not support this feature.

If you really need this, feel free to install Nova Launcher Prime or Apex Launcher Pro. My app supports both.

I googled for it and found this link.  ::)

For Sony is there some code also  ;D Will you also support it?  8)

Yes, that's where I found it.

This is called "Stack Overflow driven development": 1) search for something in Google 2) find code on Stack Overflow 3) copy and paste. I love it, it's a great way to speed up development, with no need to strain my little brain by having to think.

Re: Sony -- not sure yet.

First, I need to borrow my nephew's Sony phone (I don't have any myself), and that won't happen until after the Olympics is over (long story).

Second, Sony specific code requires a permission. Every time an app has a new permission, Google Play makes users confirm the update, displaying the new permission (marked as such) and all the old ones.

And so every time, I get emails like "why does your app need access to the Internet, is it a virus?" and undoubtedly, some number of uninstalls and 1-star Google Play ratings.

Maybe... change notification icon in status bar according to number of new emails.. so icon in status bar = AquaMail icon with small circle with number of new emails inside..

Cleaner way?  ;)

These small additions can make users happy :) bcoz its cool :D

Counts in notification icons were supported by Android 2.*, a standard feature (unlike icon badges).

Since 3.0, counts only show in expanded notifications (lower right), not as status bar icon overlays.

Really?? They download an email app and wonder why it needs to connect to the net? Should they really be allowed to own a "smart" phone? :)

@doc -- I recognize a "reductio ad absurdum" type joke, but it already happened, and I had to post an explanation:
