In the previous post about Android Slices, we took a look at their possibilities, created our first Slice and tested it in different modes. In this article we will focus on more advanced slices which can take in-app actions and fetch data from our application. Let's take a look at Interactive and Dynamic Slices.

Android Slices are a brand new way to display remote content from your application in many different places, such as Google Search (and Google Assistant in the future). We can think of them as interactive, templated views. Thanks to standardized rules how Slices can be created, they can be used across many different Android versions. Slices are part of Android Jetpack, which makes them backwards compatible back to API 19 (KitKat) - so Slices will be available almost to all users of Android devices.

This article is part of a series: Android Security Analysis Tools, part one - JAADAS Android Security Analysis Tools, part two - DIVA app and AndroBugs Android Security Analysis Tools, part three - Drozer and QARK Android Security Analysis Tools, part four - MobSF   In the previous article, we began our exploration of security testing in Android applications. We started by discussing the testing problem and analyzing the first testing tools suggested by OWASP Mobile Testing Guide (MSTG). In this chapter, we will focus on the next tool for static security analysis suggested by MSTG - AndroBugs.

Being Kotlin enthusiasts and seeing how great 2017 KotlinConf talks were, when it was announced that the 2018 conference will take place in Amsterdam, we knew we must be there no matter what - we were not disappointed. The organization, talks, party, live concert (yeah there was even live concert by Queen and Freddie Mercury was brought back to life), ability to network with other Kotlin devs, all were top notch - the quality you could expect from JetBrains.

Log entries are very important in a developer’s life. We use it to display useful information, errors, workflows or even to debug something. Logs are very helpful during the development process, but should we leave them in a production app? Exposing information about the app Every information that we log can be a potential source of security issues!

Introduction The most important question when we create a new Android application from scratch is which architecture should we choose. Developers can choose between MVC, MVP, MVI and MVVM (among others). These architectural patterns are popular for Android development. For years, developers had to implement from scratch, by themselves, the application skeleton without any SDK support. After many years, at the annual Google I/O event, in May 2017, Google presented the Architecture Guide, in which object lifecycle is the most important functionality to support from the point of view of Android OS. During that I/O, Google presented some examples of Android Architecture Blueprints.

Instant apps are a great way to introduce users to native apps experience without the need of installation. App fragments called features can be downloaded quickly thanks to their size limitation (4MB). This brings great user experience to people who can't afford to install a whole application or don't want to download the whole app for one functionality. Simply assign app links to your feature modules. Now whenever a user clicks a link present in your Instant App schemas, and your app is verified, instead of opening the browser, the Play Store will download your feature, cache it and launch a portion of your native app.

One of the most important things in mobile development is secure communication, especially between the app and its backend server. Currently, the most common architecture of web services is REST based on HTTP. The best protection method for this model of communication is the TLS/SSL standard. It can be combined with the HTTP protocol to create an encrypted variant called HTTPs. HTTPs ensures safe, encrypted communication channels between client apps and the backend server. Moreover, implementing this security feature is very simple on Android. You just need to watch out for some common pitfalls.
