I recently gave the Audible audiobook service a try. They have a free month after which they charge £7.99 per month for a book credit, with additional books costing extra. Great, I thought, I’ll check it out. Unfortunately a small issue put me in touch with Audible’s customer service.

Google has extended Action Bar support for older devices (as early as Android 2.1) via support library 18.
This video provides an overview of how to update your existing app to use the new Action Bar apis and take full advantage of the Action Bar on older devices.
