    Is this still current?
    I am trying to use it in Android Studio 0.8.2 and I am getting a warning that BubbleIconFactory is deprecated, and the makeIcon() method does not exist 🙁
    I am quite the noob so I am not sure I added it correctly to my project, but at least import; gives no error…
    I need to create markers on the fly from other conditions in my code, any thoughts?
    Thank you.

    Took me about 12 hours now trying to integrate your library into my application (using Android Studio) but it just won't work. Always getting the "NoClassDefFoundError:". I tried referencing your library in every way I could imagine; obviously I am still doing something wrong. Too bad you didn't tell what to do 🙁 I will have to create my own bubble Icons now…
