Using Open Source Code

Hi Heather! Sorry to bombard you with so many questions. I always like to play safe.
My question this time is are we allowed to use other open source libraries? Here is one arbitrary example: https://github.com/futuresimple/android-floating-action-button/blob/master/README.md

Most open source libraries have an apache 2.0 license which basically means that they are free to use as we wish as long as I include somewhere in the app a reference to them. Most often the attribution is found in an About page or Licenses settings page. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you!

    Hi there, it sounds like you would meet the criteria in our rules, since you have permission to use it if you provide adequate acknowledgements. Take a look at the Warranties section in our Rules to be familiar with our requirements on this. Let me know if you still have questions!

    Wonderful, thank you! In the case that I use it, I will make sure to include attribution.
