More Developers Start Working on Android Apps

first_imgFlurry Smart Phone Industry Pulse July 2009 Final Related Posts Tags:#Apple#E-Books#news#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting frederic lardinois EBooks on Mobile PhonesFlurry also took a close look at eBook applications and noticed that the number of active users there is showing tremendous growth. Flurry tracked nearly 3 million active users of eBook apps in July, up from just around half a million in March. While Amazon and Barnes & Noble both offer eBook apps for the iPhone (and B&N also offers one for the Blackberry), Sony remains the only major eBook player without a mobile app. Judging from these numbers, the real battle for dominance in the eBook market might not happen around hardware devices like the Kindle or the Sony Reader. Instead, whichever company can dominate the eBook market on mobile phones might have a serious advantage over its competitors.center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… By the end of this year, Apple’s App Store will carry more than 100,000 apps. According to Flurry, which specializes in providing real-time analytics to mobile app developers on the iPhone, Android, JavaME, and Blackberry, new project starts among iPhone developers show no sign of slowing down. Flurry, however, also noticed that a growing number of developers have started to work on Android applications – maybe in reaction to Apple’s erratic App Store approval process. Over the past six months, the number of new Android apps that have integrated Flurry’s analytics doubled and the pipeline for new Android apps is also filling up quickly.Flurry currently tracks about 1,600 applications. The company argues that because developers often integrate analytics early on in the development process – as early as 6 months before an app ships – it can track “new project starts.” As always, we have to take these statistics with a grain of salt. After all, it’s possible that the number of developers who are integrating Flurry Analytics is growing and not the number of developers in general. Android Poised for GrowthStill, Flurry’s stats for Android are definitely encouraging, and there can be little doubt that more and more developers are starting to look at Android as an alternative platform – especially since Apple’s App Store approval process continues to be a mess.Flurry doesn’t track applications on Windows Mobile phones. Microsoft, however, is also trying to woo disgruntled iPhone developers and is now offering instructions for how to port iPhone apps to Windows Mobile.

USA Todays New AR Game Lets You Block Penalty Kicks Like Alyssa

With the help of AR, users can practice blocking penalty kicks from a life-size goal, including some that approach with 80 miles per hour — speeds that Naeher will be facing once the World Cup officially starts later this week.Gannett and USA Today emerging technology director Ray Soto readily admitted that he hadn’t been able to block any of those super-fast balls either when he demonstrated the experience at the sidelines of the Augmented World Expo in Santa Clara, Calif. last week. “You really don’t know where this is going to go, but I don’t think Alyssa does either,” he said. Soto said that his team initially just planned to include those 80 mph shots in the experience, but quickly realized that this would be too overwhelming for most users. That’s why the experience now also includes a much more manageable training phase, as well as an intermediate stage with balls coming in at 40 mph.The entire experience is modeled after real penalty kicks, tasking users to block 5 shots. It is being narrated in part by Naeher herself, who Soto’s team recently got to scan and turn into a 3D AR hologram. “Team USA and Alyssa were fantastic,” he said.In addition to the goalkeeper experience, USA Today is also launching a second AR component, which introduces Team USA on the field in a tabletop-like setting. Soto said that the app would be constantly updated to reflect any changes in Team USA’s line-up. The two-part AR experience went  live within USA Today’s iOS and Android apps Tuesday.center_img Popular on Variety last_img read more
