Te Waka o Delphi – In a previous post I noted the absence of the BatteryManager class in the AndroidAPI.JNI units. This class contains some constants useful when reading battery information.

TPersistent.com – If you have never heard of DSharp, I would recommend taking a look. It provides a data binding mechanism, which unlike hcOPF’s does not require developers to create objects that descend from a specific base class.  Unlike LiveBindings introduced in XE2, there seem to be no significant ...
