Hi Guys. Have you already downloaded Proxy Settings? No? You should! Please stop reading this post if you haven't already done! It's the first step!!
We need to provide the users simple and easy solutions. But I already told you that...
Today I need to update some comments I made regarding how to use the system proxy settings, for the following reason: a couple of months ago (ok, maybe I'm not The Flash), Google Developer Jesse Wilson spoke about the best practices for Android’s HTTP Clients, so I have to refresh the instructions for the developers in order to better handling the proxy settings in their own applications.
So what did Jesse say? I don't want to repeat what he already well explained. Basically the condensed part of his post is that if your target is >= Gingerbread (2.3) you should use HttpURLConnection for your Http Client.
