Show unused resources in Android Studio

Today when I was reading about how to decrease size of an APK file, I discovered a functionality that I have been looking for in Android Studio, it's how to show unused resources. This functionality becomes extremely helpful when you want to optimize your APK file before release, and I believe the smaller your APK file the more download your app will get.

Enough rambling, this is how you get it:
Analyze -> Inspect code...
Then in  Inspection windows (View -> Tool Windows -> Inspection), under Android Lint, you will find an entry named "Unused resources", click on it and you would get something like:

Oh, just one more note, I'm using Android Studio Beta 0.8.11 (Updated from Canary Channel)
Yeah, that's it.

Happy coding ;)
