Functions Android L, which is missing in iOS 8 – androidinsider.ru

 Android L & # x438; Apple

A week has passed since the time when the operating system Apple iOS 8 became available to users. With it came many new features, including those that are familiar to users Android. But Google also has something to please the users. Android L, in addition to the previously discussed Material Design, has considerable set of new features and even more than iOS 8. Despite the fact that iOS 8 was a big step into the future, she has a lot to learn from Android.

 Android L

This is the opinion columnist Android Origin Anna Rose. As an example, it shows the number of such functions, which are in Android, but which lacks the iOS.

(1) First of all, Android L allows developers to integrate their applications with the Web search Google.

(2) In Android L also plan to add interactive notifications, such as those that appeared in iOS 8. But they will have a number of features not found in iOS 8 . appear in Android L advanced notice (Expanded Notifications), which will enable all notifications – not just text messages from Facebook – open in advanced mode. Will also be possible to answer them. Even phone calls will not interrupt what you are currently doing on your phone.

(3) In iOS also lacks the ability to edit the screenshots of the screen updates. This feature is already in Android, and Android L it will continue to develop. When you took a screenshot on your device, it appears in your Notification Wall. And immediately there you can easily edit it by just clicking on the notification and thus opening the image for editing. This function is, at first glance, it is not pretty, but it can save the user a lot of time by reducing editing time and allowing you to quickly share a picture.

(4) The battery, starting with the iOS 6 and still remains the problem of the operating system. In Android L will be fully updated system energy saving battery – Battery Saver mode. Of course, it is not even close to the effectiveness of the regime ultraenergosberezheniya (Ultra Battery Mode) from Samsung. Its main focus will be on how to stretch for as long as possible while the “last drop” of energy in the device battery. Discussed earlier Project Volta from Google is a new software that will add a bit of time working devaysa without recharging.

(5) Apple’s mobile operating system lacks even a single function, which Android has already for a long time. It is about the ability to uninstall preinstalled applications and replacing them with a more pleasant user counterparts. For example, the iOS user can not replace the Apple Maps Maps Google, as the Safari browser to Firefox and make their applications by default. But Android users have such an opportunity.

 Android L

So if these features are important to convince the user to choose an even better Android-flagship of the brand new iPhone 6? Or no phone based on Android can not even be compared with the products of Apple?

Google teaser final name for Android L on his birthday? – Mobiltelefon.Ru

This weekend, Google celebrated its 16th Birthday. September 27 search giant releases on the calendar since 2005, and before that celebration held on 7 September. Interestingly, neither the one nor the other day is the founding date of the company. The corporation was founded on 2 September 1998, and the Google domain was registered on September 15 last year. By the way, Google is a distortion of the word googol (googol), which represents 10 to the hundredth power (or one with a hundred zeros). Whatever it was, September is a landmark month for the company and Google said the event on his page on Google+, posting a cake with 17 candles (one for growth). At the top of the cake, we can see a wide variety of candies. Most likely, this is a reference to a commercial name Android L – the next generation of world’s most popular mobile operating system. Most often, the rumors say just about Lollipop (lollipop), but there were options and Lion (chocolate bar, continuing the traditions of KitKat) and Lime Pie (key lime pie).

The official release will take place next month. Get a glimpse of the new OS, you can from our review preview for developers.


Google has shown examples of applications for Android Auto – Ferra

In addition to the new mobile operating system, Google Android L also leads the development of operating systems for vehicles, which should see the light of day until the end of this year. And thanks to documents intended for developers, we can see how some will look for third-party applications Android Auto.

Recall that Android Auto will be used in vehicles as a board operating system, and control its functions will be the on-board touch screen car. However, applications for Android Auto will not be completely independent. In fact, it will be all the same applications that are installed on a smartphone or tablet driver and onboard vehicle system will only interact with them. For example, the on-board touch screen, users can read on your smartphone received a notification, control music playback, and use voice control system. The same system is used in the Android version for handheld devices: in order to install the application on smart watches, at the beginning you must install it on your smartphone.

In addition, between Android Wear and Android Auto traced another a close relationship: when creating software application developers for Android Auto also will not be able to show a lot of frivolity because Google decided to carefully protect the automotive user interface operating systems. For this reason, developers will not be able to use modified covers, or skins. However, be allowed to use several color schemes, which, incidentally, for the convenience of the driver will vary depending on time of day.

With the release of Android Auto users will be available a couple of types of third-party applications. These include applications to display on the cockpit display of incoming messages on the smartphone, as well as media players.

The first smartphone based on Android said sixth birthday – 3DNews

Mobile Google Android operating system has not yet been passed, even in primary school age – she was only six years old. The original system came out September 23, 2008 (then introduced the first commercial device – HTC G1 Dream) and then the announcement is unlikely many have given too much importance, but today the name of Android sounds in computer news around the world, perhaps even more than the name of the Windows . Those interested can read our review in 2009 of the first Android-devices and impressions of the Android 1.5 Cupcake.

HTC G 1 Dream

Each owner of a smartphone if not using Android-device, then, at least, is well aware of the OS from friends and relatives. Google is constantly reports on all new records: According to the second quarter of 2014 the share sold in the smartphone market is a whopping 85% – these figures show almost monopoly free outdoor operating in this sector.

On the Russian market Android officially came in July 2009 in the form of a smartphone Highscreen PP5420. Android platform was initially calculated mainly on the use of smart phones (although there have been attempts to use the mobile OS and tablets, for example, in the original Galaxy Tab with Android 2.2). With the release of the 2011 version of the Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet on the way the market was opened officially. Until the release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in 2012, version of Android for smartphones and tablets have evolved in parallel.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2010 could not compete with the iPad

In the tablet market, where previously dominated by Apple iOS thanks to the popularity iPad, today palm also belongs to Google Android (at least in terms of market share). By the end of 2013, according to analysts from Gartner, has sold about 121 million tablets based on Android – this is 62% of the world market for such devices (for comparison, in the same year, the share of iPad was 36%). Today, the gap has certainly increased in favor of Android thanks to an array of affordable tablets and ecosystem development Google.

Motorola Xoom – the first tablet based on “tablet» Android

This is due to the huge success of Android bidding on sensory environment. When the world was represented by the organization Open Handset Alliance November 5, 2007, it was a completely different Android. Google just realized the huge benefits which was released in the same 2007 iPhone and rejected the idea of ​​the release Android as an operating system for push smartphones without touch screens like the once-dominant Blackberry.

The second key factor is the popularity of free and open mobile operating system Google : these two combinations made possible simply breathtaking success. The number of different issued for 6 years smartphones, tablets, laptops and most diverse electronics based on Android defies description. Based on Android are many other more or less successful platform with its own ecosystem of applications and services. The most famous is incompatible with ecosystem Android platform based operating system from Google, you can call the Amazon Fire OS, but in China such OS tens, and in our market, there are examples like smart phones with firmware Yandex.Kit from Yandex.

Great variety of devices, modifications, Android and smartphones refresh problem on the actual assembly of the operating system hinder the development of the platform Google. The search giant is trying to deal with fragmentation. The latest of these initiatives is the Android One – cheap smartphones reference to emerging markets with guaranteed updates for two years directly from Google.

Now Google is preparing the launch of the next major version – Android L, which will bring more innovation than any of the other previously released releases. Promised a new “real” design, energy optimization Project Volta, a new runtime application ART and more. Android development continues – in front, of course, new achievements green robot.

Google promised to reliably protect your personal data from Android – androidinsider.ru

 Google & # x441; & # x434; & # x435; & # x43B; & # x430; & # x435; & # x442; & # x448; & # x438; & # x444; & # x440; & # x43E; & # x432; & # x430; & # x43D; & # x438; & # x435; & # x43F; & # x43E; & # x443; & # x43C; & # x43E; & # x43B; & # x447; & # x430; & # x43D; & # x438; & # x44E;

Many people are very sensitive to their data, trying to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. But, as we know, still there are moments when the attackers gain access to personal data or photographs. Google is in a Washington Post interview told what measures will be taken in the Android security of user data.

We are talking about how to encrypt data that is available to Android users since 2011. However, this feature was not enabled by default, and as they say security experts, most people are not even aware of its existence.

Now, however, Google has decided to slightly change the security policy. In the next version of the operating system Android L encryption function is enabled immediately after the activation of the device. Thus each user’s data will be protected.

«Over the past three years there in the Android encryption and keys are always stored locally, so no special services can not gain access to your phone without permission member. In our operating system Android L encryption will work on the device immediately out of the box, so you do not have to worry about turning it on, “- says a company spokeswoman Niki Christoff.

This step, according to Google, is part of a global change in technology companies in the defense of government surveillance. As we know, not just Google, but Apple is introducing more and more different methods to protect users’ personal data.

And how do you feel about the encryption on Android, it is turned on you?

Vesti.net: encryption on Android and Snowden about Syria – BBC News

In a short time encryption of data on all Android-powered devices will cease to be selective and will become mandatory for each user. Now all devices running the upcoming version of Android will ask the user to create a password to encrypt its data at the first turn on the phone, and to avoid this step is no longer possible.

The aim of Google – to make sure that all information on the phone or tablet running Android was password protected and would be inaccessible to all but its owner. In the first place, according to representatives of Google, it should complicate the process of gathering information about users of the secret services.

However, most likely, this is just a response to the actions of Apple. The fact that the encryption function exist on Android for more than three years, but it was included on request. However, in the wake of another surge of anxiety on the integrity of user data, which occurred after the network flowed private photos of Hollywood stars, Apple CEO Tim Cook took the correction of the company’s image. The first step in this direction was the mandatory encryption of user data in iOS8. And Google had no choice but to do the same.

It is also noteworthy that this happened a day after Tim Cook, broke sharply criticized on how IT-companies in Silicon Valley are treated personal information of its customers. In his open letter, Cook said that Apple has chosen a new privacy policy user data is fundamentally different from that of other companies in the first place – the policy of Google. According to Cook, Apple did not collect information about users of the browser history or e-mail, and will not sell it to advertisers. In other words, does not do than by the scheme of the monetization of Google.

In addition, Cook said that the new system of mandatory encryption, user information, such as photos, messages, mail, contacts, call history , notes and content from iTunes, are protected by a password, which can not get around, even at Apple. And to provide this information secret services have on their hands the device under iOS8 and the corresponding order, Apple can not for technical reasons. However, as noted by the Verge, then Tim Cook disingenuous, without specifying that control the user data, of course, possible. Apple’s website has a page that describes the principles of cooperation with law enforcement agencies, which states that the security services are now just need to bring yourself iPhone, iPod or iPad directly to the Apple headquarters in Cupertino. In other words, the secret services would be more difficult for remote wiretap, but the presence of the suspect device, decrypt the data will not be difficult.


 In a recent interview with Wired former CIA and NSA, Edward Snowden, shared new details regarding the work of the security services on the international scene. According to him, for the shutdown of the Internet in Syria in the midst of civil war, the government stood not, as previously thought, and the error was the operational arm of the United States NSA.

On Thursday, November 29, 2012, hackers from the group Tailored Access Operations tried to remotely install an exploit on one of the main router’s largest Internet service provider in Syria. This exploit was to give the NSA access to Internet traffic most of the Syrian citizens, and in particular – to their e-mail correspondence. But during the installation of spyware something went wrong, and the router is engaged in the distribution of Internet traffic of the country suddenly stopped responding. As it turned out, he was completely worn out. As a result, all Syria suddenly lost all connection to the Internet. According to Snowden, hackers TAO desperately trying to fix a broken their router remotely to hide traces of their presence and remove spyware that same program, but to no avail – the router does not respond. From the words of Snowden, in this moment of panic hackers in the command center Tailored Access Operations were only able to defuse the situation with a joke: “If we get caught, we say that it was Israel” “

Fortunately for the NSA, the Syrians were more passionate about restoring the connection to the Internet, rather than causes of the problem, and the incident no one, except for the NSA, he still had not learned.
