Users have long complained about performance issues and it sucking up battery and last year Facebook s chief product officer, Chris Cox, took the unusual step of making his staff ditch their iPhones and move to Android until they sorted out the issues.But the problems have remained, and recently they led the Android blogger Russell Holly to dump the app, starting a chain reaction which revealed something rather interesting about the app s performance.Prompted by Holly s revelation that life on Android was better without Facebook s app, Reddit user pbrandes eth tested the app s impact on the performance of an LG G4.They found that when the Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps were uninstalled, other apps on the smartphone launched 15% faster.They found similar results when testing for app loading performance.Over the course of a day my Huawei Nexus 6P had 20% more battery.

Installing apps is a time consuming pain in the arse sometimes.Google just announced it s brilliant solution to this problem: Instant Apps.What s more exciting is that Instant Apps will be compatible all the way back to devices running Android Jellybean.The most common way to activate an Instant App download seems to be clicking on a link, but Google also suggests it could be done in other ways.In one example, an NFC tap actives the download of a payments app at a parking meter.Although Google s announcing the initiative today, it s not ready for prime time just yet.
Google has released a preview version of Android Wear 2.0 which, however, at this writing is only compatible with the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition and Huawei Watch. The interface has become darker and support alerts have been expanded. The platform has also received support for standalone apps that can run completely independent of the smartphone. They thus functions even when your phone is not connected. Spotify, for example, able to run on their own and play offline music. Android Wear 2.0 provides a new API for dials - all dials can display information from any installed application whatsoever.
Functionality will at first be limited to a little over 600 ATMs in San Francisco and the Bay Area, but Bank of America hopes to expand that number to 2,400 machines by the end of May and 5,000 by 2017.Bhat demonstrated during the session with Walgreens loyalty program, Balance Rewards.Users with an existing account can simply tap a button from an SMS message, email, or push notification, or if need be, get one relatively simply — Android Pay auto-populates the name, address, phone number, and email fields of a program s sign-up page.It s, in a nutshell, a collection of simple tools to help retailers and developers create a standardized payments experience across browsers and platforms, which according to Bhan is key to customer retention — Android Pay merchants that have added features like auto-filled checkout fields have seen up to a 25 percent increase in conversions.The Payment Request API dovetails with Google s Android Instant Apps project, a streaming system that allows mobile users to interact with apps without installing them.Finally, Google s added support within Android Pay for third-party payment processors including Stripe, Vantiv, and Braintree that only require developers to write a few lines of code to integrate, according to Bhan.
You will get hands on help from our friendly engineers on how to optimize your Android app for Chromebooks.And developers might be able to take advantage of the Play Store s significantly more mature deployment features, including A/B testing, staged app rollouts, developer replies, and others.Last month, eagle-eyed Reddit user TheWiseYoda spied a setting in an early release of Chrome OS — version 51 in the Developer Channel — that referenced a way to enable Android Apps on Chromebook devices.The groundwork for the migration has long been laid.Later that year, Google began letting publishers seed Android apps to seed users, but in a limited fashion — installs were restricted to the Chrome Web Store.Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that Google had been working for two years to merge Chrome OS and Android, and that it planned to launch the result — a new, unified operating system that runs on PCs — in 2017.

Google Classroom is being joined by a new Coursework API that will allow developers to have their applications further integrate with the aforementioned Classroom service.Classroom is Google s educational management system for teachers and schools, and it uses the company s own Drive platform.Today, Google has announced updates to its Classroom offering, saying that, among other things, reporting systems and gradebooks can now be setup to sync students grades with Google Classroom, removing the time sink of manually transferring grades.Developers also have the newly gained ability to store files in the same Drive folder as the rest of the resources in a class, or use course groups to manage file sharing permissions, says Google.The company already has some partners in testing with the new features, including GeoGebra, OpenEd, and Tynker, all of them being educational platforms.Until then, check out our Google I/O portal for all the news fresh off the ground floor.
This system will be released into the wild as soon as Google's done working on it - which doesn't appear to be all that long from now.That's just the beginning - it requires a smooth system to run in order to be adopted, and indeed accepted - by users worldwide.As such, Google suggests that Android Instant Apps will "Run Android apps as seamlessly as loading a webpage."Perhaps just as important as the speed at which these app bits open is the fact that this will all work on Android devices on Android versions as old as Jelly Bean.It's a system that lots and lots of smartphones are still running today - we can't all be Nexus users.Google's next step is, of course, allowing you to see just that one tiny portion of the app with the option to download the whole thing.
In a bid to win over more Indian developers, Apple on Wednesday announced it would set up by early next year a facility to help developers on best practices and to improve the design, quality and performance of their apps on the iOS platform.Apple estimates that over 1 million people in the city work in the tech sector, with over 40 percent of graduates from local universities specializing in engineering or IT.Apple s CEO Tim Cook is on his first visit to India, which he has identified as a growth market for the company, where he expects disproportionate growth versus the more developed areas.Developers usually try out a concept first on Android before offering an iOS version of the app, as it is easier to validate the concept with the large amount of feedback you get from Android users, he added.But iOS is also attractive for developers because users of the iPhone tend to have higher purchasing power and are more likely to retain apps they download, in contrast to Android users who frequently delete apps to save on memory on their phones, Mathew said.The company will also give developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world, and provide support on Apple s Swift programming language.
Chinese mobile dating app Tantan has raised a $32 million USD series C funding from a group of investors, including LB Investment, Vision Capital 元璟资本 , and DST Global.The latter is headed by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, whose investment portfolio includes big name tech companies, including Didi Chuxing, Xiaomi, Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter.After this round of funding, we plan to continue focusing on user pain points, improving daily usage, and consolidating our position in the social application industry, a PR spokesperson from Tantan told TechNode.Well this looks familiar…The company claims to have 2.5 million active users, about 80% of which are part of China s post-90 s generation.According to Chinese media, the male-to-female ratio on Tantan s app is 6:4.Founded in 2014, the Chinese app is almost identical to Tinder, down to its UI which lets users swipe left and right for potential matches.In 2015, the Beijing-based company came under fire when multiple security risks in the app were revealed by Hong Kong-based entrepreneur, Larry Salibra.By reverse-engineering the Chinese app, Mr. Salibra discovered that sensitive user data, including passwords and telephone numbers, were not encrypted and vulnerable to hackers.
Nvidia says its virtual desktop products will start at $2 per user, per monthNvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at the GTC conference on April 5, 2016Nvidia is introducing a new graphics card option for its Grid virtual desktop system, promising to cut the costs of streaming graphics-intensive applications to employees.Customers buy the graphics hardware in Grid servers from partners such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Dell, Cisco Systems and Nutanix, along with virtualization software such as VMware Horizon, Citrix XenApp and Citrix XenDesktop.It can also make workers more mobile, because the streamed apps can be accessed from anywhere and on almost any client, including a tablet.With the new M10 cards, Nvidia wants to branch out into the broader market for office workers, or what it calls knowledge workers."Every marketing person I know uses Photoshop or Illustrator, so these apps are becoming more widely used," he said.That includes the price of the Tesla M10, but it doesn't include the rest of the server hardware.
The goal is a peer-to-peer serverless hosting, storage and serving solution that is DDOS-resistant, fault-tolerant, has zero-downtime, and is censorship-resistant.This gave way to Web 2.0 and a "Faustian bargain" which traded control of content, access and user data for scalable hosting infrastructure which is kept cheap or free by selling on their profile info to third parties for targeted advertising.Swarm lead developer Viktor Trón told IBTimes UK: "It occurred to the founders of Ethereum quite early on that this could be a very good skeleton for a new generation of the web, a vision they termed Web 3.Firstly, as a content distribution system for Dapps; secondly for certain application logic which is not consensus critical which you don't want to be replicated on every node, think the database component of web applications; and thirdly, the blockchain itself could be stored in a decentralised way."And similarly if you had a decentralised Airbnb, then you would have all the accommodation offerings with the photos of everything on Swarm.The solution proposed in the orange paper uses cryptographically verifiable proof of custody combined with erasure coding a method of data protection in which data is broken into fragments, expanded and encoded with redundant data pieces and stored across a set of different locations or storage media .
It looks like Google may be changing the name of their app indexing protocol from Google App Indexing to Firebase App Indexing.Last night, I captured screen shots of Google changing the Google search developer page from saying Google App Indexing to Firebase App Indexing.But it seems Google changed it back this morning to just App Indexing.Yes, Firebase is a company Google acquired back in October 2014.So it is possible Google would renamed their mobile efforts Firebase and bring App Indexing into that.They also announced more features around this that we covered over here.
The next generation of air travel just got a step closer, with the successful completion of a rocket test in the Australian desert that could one day lead to flights from London to Sydney taking as little as two hours.The test is part of a series of ten, run by a team comprised of US and Australian military scientists.At the Woomera Testing Range, they were able to send an experimental scramjet attached to a rocket booster to an altitude of 278 kilometres with a top speed of Mach 7.5 - more than seven times the speed of sound.That's far faster than the 'supersonic' Concorde aircraft ever achieved, and passes the threshold for 'hypersonic travel' instead - defined as travel at more than five times the speed of sound."The practical application of that is you could fly long distances over the Earth very, very quickly but also that it's very useful as an alternative to a rocket for putting satellites into space.""It is a game-changing technology... and could revolutionise global air travel, providing cost-effective access to space," Australia's chief scientist Alex Zelinsky said in a statement.
With rent prices in cities like San Francisco, Portland, and New York soaring to astronomical heights as of late, hearing about the new rent-bidding service Rentberry is sure to put prospective renters in a tail-spin.So instead of going about renting an apartment the old-fashioned way — you know by submitting an application for the price that s listed — interested tenants now have the ability to place bids on any residences they re keen on, be it over or under the posted list price.This isn t just about people offering a lot of money, Lubinsky told Digital Trends.Application fees are a pain in the neck — especially if a renter doesn t actually move into a place they ve already spent money on — and not hearing back from a landlord causes undue stress during an already strenuous time.While the above examples are purely speculative, it remains to be seen just how exactly landlords and tenants will react to a venture like Rentberry.To address its main criticism, Lubinsky remained firm in asserting that if prices are destined to rise in the housing market, they will with or without a service like Rentberry.
