I had been playing a lot games recently (blame Steam for it. ahahah) Anyway, over at twitter, Romain Guy from the Android team has been twitting good links/articles that would be visible in Android 2.2. Follow him for the Froyo goodness @romainguy

I love the new New HierarchyView feature, where you just give the psd to your creative guys. Now back to Steam (torchlight and soon warhammer40k) :)
