Bringing Your App’s Data To Every User’s Wrist With Android Wear

Montag, 9. Januar 2017 10:46




 


 

The most popular mobile operating system is known to be Android. One of the main reasons for its popularity is its ability to run on a huge number of devices, not only on phones and tablets. We find Android on TVs, watches, cars, even fridges and mirrors.

Bringing Your App’s Data To Every User’s Wrist

Android Wear is the version of the operating system specifically designed to extend the Android platform to wearables, with particular attention to smartwatches. These devices allow the user to consume information in a completely different way than traditional handheld devices: Data is presented at the right time depending on the user’s context, and interaction is less invasive and time-consuming than in a phone app.

Back in 2007, the world met the iPhone for the very first time. After Apple’s product debut, it took less than six months for work to begin on PhoneGap, which would become one of the first and most adopted frameworks for hybrid mobile app development — that is, for apps written simultaneously for multiple platforms using HTML, CSS and JavaScript, rather than coded in native languages.

When compared with the prospect of learning an entirely new language and development environment in order to program iOS (and soon Android) apps, the appeal of this type of development to the already huge population of web developers in the world was palpable.

Mobile applications are now a critical part of most enterprises, and there are many ways to create them, but what are the differences between these options and how do you choose between them? Do you choose to create native applications as Google and Apple intend? Do you choose to develop a mobile web hybrid application? Or do you find a middle ground?

We’re going to look at some of the common problems with developing mobile applications, both native and hybrid, and how NativeScript by Telerik fills the gap. We’ll proceed to develop a NativeScript Android and iOS application from scratch (using the supplied source code), and then convert the same application to use the bleeding-edge Angular 2 JavaScript framework.
