Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
Czyżby spełniało się to, co przewidział Jobs i naprawdę zbliża się koniec Flasha? Firma Adobe poinformowała o braku Flash Playera dla nowo zaprezentowanego Androida. Aplikacja umożliwiająca odtwarzanie animacji na stronach internetowych rzeczywiście zdaje się chylić ku upadkowi.
Have you ever heard someone complain that their Android phones were extremely slow, or they were bored with the Android interface and want something crisp and clean like the iPhone? Well, this post hopes to answer those questions in a practical way and maybe after following our customization steps, they would love their Android devices a little bit more. First of all, I would like to start pointing out some key misunderstandings that most casual Android users tend to misunderstood. When I asked my friends, why they didn’t use this application instead, it would speed up their overall experience on Android, they look back and ask, “Don’t you have to root your phone in order to change this application?” Installing widgets, launchers or even changing icons/lock screen DOES NOT require you to root your phones.
You know what one of the best things about Android is? Customization! No matter what your flavor, just about every inch of android can be customized, tweaked, or transformed and take on practically any kind of change imaginable to truly make your device your very own.
In February, we here at Android.AppStorm put together our best tips, tricks, features, and shortcuts . This month, we’ve gathered our favorite apps – the ones we use all the time, and that we’d recommend to our friends. There’s a bit of overlap, naturally – between us, we use four or five different Twitter apps! We’ve skipped all the stock apps, however; we’re not giving out awards for great design, we’re trying to recommend apps that you might not already be aware of. By the same token, I doubt we need to tell you about the official apps for Facebook or Twitter; if you’re already a user, you know about the app, and if you’re not a user, the apps are unlikely to convince you to become one. So here are 100 apps that, between us, we recommend trying out.
This is a guest post by Guenther Beyer, an Android UI and Design expert who recently launched AndroidIcons.com to help developers improve the look and feel of their apps. These days many developers are jumping on the mobile train for fame and fortune – and they are right in doing so – there isn’t a market growing as quickly. Great, unique ideas are emerging from small teams. Apps are built at work on lunch breaks.
The strict review guidelines followed in the Apple iOS App Store, in spite of all the flak it gets for being too strict or whimsical at times, ensures a certain quality for applications that get on the market. The Android Market’s open nature tends to work against it in some aspects, not the last of which is eye-candy. For those yearning for good, usable and contemporary UI design, trying to find the right applications in the Android Market can be quite a horrifying encounter. Let us save you that hassle then. Presented here are 40+ Android applications that boast some of the best user interfaces and icons. Although most of these applications score high on usability and utility, those are not the primary criteria for selection in this list.

Russian Translation via softdroid.net There’s a lot to get excited about in mobile application development today. With increasingly sophisticated hardware, tablet PCs and a variety of software platforms (Symbian OS, iOS, WebOS, Windows Phone 7…), the landscape for mobile developers is full of opportunities — and a little complex as well. So much choice can be overwhelming when you just want to get started building mobile applications . Which platform should you choose? What programming language should you learn?
Getting into Android development can be quite a challenge, particularly if you’re new to Java or Eclipse or both. Whatever your past experience, you might feel tempted to start working away without checking that you’re making the best use of the IDE. In this article, we’ll go over a few tips, tools and resources that can maximize Eclipse’s usefulness and hopefully save you a few headaches. You might of course already be familiar with some (or all) of them and even be aware of others that we haven’t covered. If so, please do feel free to mention them.
A smartphone war is raging, pitched as a neck and neck battle for market share; but I see it differently. Android is an open platform, iPhone is a lovely product, everything else is decoration. Android is most exciting in its incarnations outside of what is expected in mobile, desktop and tablets. I expect to see it in hundreds of future weird and wonderful products but in any case you’d best believe smartphone adoption isn’t going to slow down any time soon.
2011 has been an important year for Android. With devices like Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola XOOM and Kindle Fire turning heads in the market, atop the release of what is arguably the best iteration of the mobile OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) yet, it was only a matter of time before the head honchos of mobile app development began hopping onto the Android bandwagon. Not only has the year seen many big names debut on the Android Market, but many novice developers make big names for themselves, and to top it all off, the Market is now home to over 400,000 apps.
Ever since its inception, Android has taken the world by a storm. A bundle of the OS kernel, middleware, applications and frameworks, Android offers developers a chance to create awesome apps. Quite obviously, every developer will want to get his/her hands on Android. Therefore, in this article, I shall try to explain the basic concepts related to Android development from scratch. Unlike other articles found on the internet, this one assumes no prior knowledge of Android development.
