This library has been deprecated, use ion instead:
UrlImageViewHelper will fill an ImageView with an image that is found at a URL.
The sample will do a Google Image Search and load/show the results asynchronously.
Download [the latest JAR](http://repository.sonatype.org/service/local/artifact/maven/redirect?r=central-proxy&g=com.koushikdutta.urlimageviewhelper&a=urlimageviewhelper&v=LATEST ) or grab via Maven:
UrlImageViewHelper will automatically download and manage all the web images and ImageViews. Duplicate urls will not be loaded into memory twice. Bitmap memory is managed by using a weak reference hash table, so as soon as the image is no longer used by you, it will be garbage collected automatically.
Usage is simple:
Want a placeholder image while it is being downloaded?
Don't want to use a placeholder resource, but a drawable instead?
What if you want to preload images for snazzy fast loading?
What if you only want to cache the images for a minute?
UrlImageViewHelper is pretty smart. It can even load the photo for an Android contact if given a Contact Content Provider URI.
Does it work in list adapters when views are reused? (convertView)
