Hi Carlos,
I see one hack in the overview page. I'd like to know what the advantages and disadvantages of using Scala instead of Java? Do you use Scala a lot in your daily Android development?

I worked for a company that had a scala module already coded before starting the android app.
I wrote that hack because I could manage to use it without needing to port it to Java.

Scala is gaining a lot of momentum but unfortunately is not being optimized for Android.
I wouldn't recommend to start from the scratch an android in scala, but it's interesting to know that it works
