As a big fan of SDWebImage, I was both shocked and dismayed that the Android world had no such component. If you’re not familiar, SDWebImage is an iOS UIImageView extension that lets you set Web URL’s and have them automatically loaded and cached for better performance later.

Often, a developer can get away with their own loading if a single screen has a single graphic to display. Not so for table views, which not only require a lot more concurrent loading but need to be able to properly handle cancelations efficiently as items scroll onto and off the screen.

So, Rapture In Venice has authored the URL-loading, caching WebImageView for Android developers and it’s available for free on GitHub. Documentation included.

Enjoy. :-)

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
