ACN Android Framework

ACN Android Framework is being developed to reduce application development effort and time providing custom...

  1. Application and Activity classes that encapsulate general configuration of application and initialization of many widely-used third-party libraries.
  2. View classes with sophisticated, yet easy-to-use features, powered by default views of Android and other third-party views shared on GitHub.

See test module for sample usage of the framework.
