News for developers about Google I/O

Google I/O 2017

The long-awaited Google I/O finally went down recently near the company’s headquarters, the aptly named Googleplex, in Mountainview, California. The annual event is first and foremost a developer conference, but it also had a little bit of something for everyone else. The usual suspects were there; Android Wear, Google Assistant, Google TV and Google Home. There was plenty of SDK talk as well, but all eyes and ears were on the new, upcoming Android OS. The somewhat covertly-named Android O (which will most likely stand for Oreo) is currently in Beta and is set for release later this year.

Apps to teach children real-world skills

It is essential for a child to run wild at times. To discover the world and explore it at their own frantic pace is one of the joys of childhood, and there are studies which suggest that this is crucial to the natural development of the human children’s minds. These days adults’ often have a difficult time grasping this and want to give a child’s mental development a more structured path. Obviously, this has created a bit of a rift in the parenting community with many taking one side of the argument or the other. However, this need not be the case.

kids and mobile apps

Like most thing in life, there is a time and place for everything. There’s a time to turn the kids loose upon nature, and then there’s time to sit them down to study some real-world skills. Introducing what may seem like rigorous and demanding skill sets to children may illicit a knee jerk reaction to many parents at first, with many of them saying “Just let kids be kids.” But, it would almost be irresponsible not to expose them to such things given the current global, social and technological climates. A common misconception is that these real-world skills need to be taught to the children of today in the same manner that they were taught to the children or adolescents of yesteryears. This would be a mistake and highly inefficient. A possible solution to this may be to leverage current technologies.

Android Wear 2.0: new standalone devices

Smartwatches were hailed, at one point in time, as the next big thing when it came to mobile technology. The industry took the nostalgia from the era of Dick Tracy talking into his watch and catapulted it to the modern age of technology. Everyone is now comfortable interacting with their smartphones, tablets and other hypermobile devices, but for the main part smartwatches have been treated more as a novelty rather than as the powerful and revolutionary devices that they really are. This is especially true when it came to the smartwatches that were being powered by Google’s Android operating system.

Android wear 2.0 by Google

Google created the Android Wear OS for smartwatches.Just like it did with its smartphones, Google has allowed third party manufacturers to create and develop devices that will then run Android Wear. Sounds great in theory, and everyone else thought so. However, as devices were released new challenges faced Google and its smartwatch manufacturers like Samsung. There were two main gripes regarding Android Wear devices. The first was that there really weren’t any apps that were specifically built for Android Wear devices. The smartphone and tablet versions of the app merely sent a notification to the smartwatch in most instances. The second was that in order for the Android Wear device to function, even moderately, the smartphone needed to be in close proximity. Even though the devices look and functioned great, it was not as interactive as a smartphone and the overall user experience was much lower than expected. Google has pressed forward, and with their latest update of the Android Wear OS (appropriately named 2.0), has sought to bridge the gap in user experience and functionality.
