Messaging feature on Android Gear

September 20, 2014 § Leave a comment

Messaging feature on Android GearSending messages on Android Gear feels as simple as it was to pass notes back in school. Keep in mind when your companions dependably felt adjacent? That inclination is the reason I cherish staying in contact with loved ones utilizing my gearable.

Your informing application likely as of now deals with Android Gear. With simply a couple of more lines of code you can open straightforward yet compelling gimmicks that let your clients impart significantly all the more smoothly.

Notifications for free

On the off chance that your Android application utilizes warnings to tell the client about new messages, these will work naturally on their Wearable. That is, the point at which you construct notices with the Notificationcompat.builder class, the framework deals with showing them legitimately, whether they show up on a handheld or gearable. Likewise, an “Open on telephone” activity will be included so its simple for the client to answer through the application on their handheld.

Answer like a champ

Messages on Gear get truly energizing when you can answer straightforwardly from the watch with your voice. Notwithstanding being super helpful, this dependably provides for me a Dick Tracy thrill…  yet perhaps that is just me. =]

To include this usefulness, its as basic as adding an activity to the notice by means of Gearableextender that incorporates a Remoteinput to your warning. After the client answers, you’ll simply get their voice include as a string from the Remoteinput included in the Intent. You can even incorporate content reactions the client can undoubtedly select from a rundown by passing a cluster of them to the setchoices strategy for the Remoteinput.

See who is messaging

Messages are more genuine when you are associated with the sender. That is the reason we prescribe you incorporate the photograph of the sender as the foundation of the warning. When the client takes advantage of the message, they likewise see who its from, which will make it matter more (or possibly that other thing, contingent upon who it is).

You ought to include a photograph with a determination of no less than 400×400, yet we prescribe 640×400. With the bigger size, the foundation will be given parallax scrolling. In the event that the foundation is to be incorporated in the apk, place it in the res/drawable-nodpi index. At that point call setbackground() on your Gearableextender and add it to your notice.

Custom actions

Essential warnings with answer by voice and a decent foundation picture are the most critical parts to accomplish immediately. Be that as it may why stop there? It’s not difficult to broaden the remarkable parts of your administration to the gearable. A straightforward first step is including a custom activity the way Omlet does. These are simply activities characterized with the Gearableextender that raise an expectation on the handheld.

Custom Layouts

Custom communication on the gearable, in the same way as the accompanying case from Textme, is clear to actualize. They have what gives off an impression of being a basic warning with an activity that permits the client to choose an emoticon. On the other hand, to demonstrate this emoticon picker, they are really issuing a notice from the gearable. The round excursion looks something like this:

  • The handheld gets another message, issues a notice setlocalonly(true), and makes an impression on the gearable utilizing the Data Layer API
  • The gearable gets that message utilizing the Gearablelistenerservice and issues a custom notice with a Pendingintent to dispatch an action when the client sees the warning
  • That action has a custom format characterized with the Gearable UI Library
  • Once the client chooses an emoticon, the gearable communicates something specific over to the handheld
  • The handheld gets that message and sends it along to the server.

Happy Reading. Subscribe us for more updates.

September 2, 2014 § Leave a comment

android lollipoAndroid Lollipop – the new, update from Google will release soon. After Kit Kat – Lollipop is the new OS for all Android Smartphone’s. They themselves discharged reviews for designers.

4th September 2014 Lenovo is all set for launching their new Smartphone with Andorid’s Lollipop update and handset model is Lenovo Vibe X2.

Below we are discussing some reasons that how the Lollipop is going to perform well:-

Look Changes: –

The looks and the easy to understand interface is the thing that positively makes an OS prevalent. Presently, the android lollipop has an altogether different methodology this time. It has a level foundation, however with 3d peculiarities. Indeed the most moment shadow and swells are given reasonable methodology.

It has 3d tiles that slide on each other focused around necessity. Furthermore the best part is that it has admittance for engineers to utilize this for themselves on their applications. The lollipop concentrates on uniting all your crucial gadgets. The TV, the machine, all has a striking resemblance. Furthermore an intuitive apparatus is produced so that there is no teleportation while exchanging gadgets.

Notices and lock screen:-

Android lollipop chips away at the guideline for prioritizing. Notices will be gotten just for the applications with necessity as saw by its use.

Something else about android L is that when you are playing a diversion, or utilizing another application, as opposed to strongly demonstrating the approaching calls, it reveals to you a notice asking whether you need to accept the call. This respectably diminishes undesirable aggravations.

This new gimmick cooks exceptionally well to the requests and needs of the application designers. Likewise, all the installed Google applications will be a great deal more subject to each other.

Android L battery life:-

In this way, when you think about a portable, what do you search for in any case? A decent client interface (that we effectively examined) and all the more imperatively, a great battery life. Few working frameworks are committed for this area!

Venture Volta by Google is the better approach for indicating how precisely the force of a versatile is squeezing out. Mobiles running the new Android lollipop will have higher battery life.

What it does is – uncover the points of interest of battery use to the client, so you can appropriately change your use. What specific procedure it takes after is not out yet, however it does spare battery.

Battery saver mode is naturally incorporated in the telephone. The battery life might be stretched out by up to 90 min! Not precisely has the force sparing of an average HTC or Samsung telephone however.

At the same time even without battery saver, our new lollipop wins the race. In a trial performed on Nexus 5 it was observed that the model running Android lollipop has 36% more battery life than the model running the Android.
