Top 8 Android Applications 2010

Android applications are not very large as compared to your I phone applications, but there are still enough to be overwhelmed and moreover its applications are growing at an increasing rate.

The platform that is provided by Android is very big that anyone can make their home screen look different a month from now. Some of the best applications that I have found on Android are listed below:

  • Places Directory– With the help of this application, you can easily find the shops and services near your current location. From your restaurants to movie theatre to various medical facilities to taxis, this application is found to be accurate. Moreover, this application is much better than the information you retrieved from your GPS unit or similar information you can get from your I phones.
  • Pandora- This is one of the top Android applications 2010. Pandora basically acts a radio station for internet age. You can simply search by an artist or by song and it will also create a play list of your favorite songs. This application also places an occasional ad between your songs provided the ads should be well localized as well as useful.
  • Google Goggles- This application actually perform visual searches. Though its scope is limited in nature but its quite pretty and cool application. You can take pictures of various things and then this application tries to tell you what they are. One of the coolest features that this application provides is that if you take pictures of text in a foreign language then it will perform the task of translation for you.
  • Gist- Mostly the people scattered their contact lists on various computers or devices or on some online services. So, this application is really helpful for those people as this application bring altogether all the contacts even pull in stuff from the Web to help you stay up to date with your most important contacts. You can also find similar application on I phone.
  • Google Voice- The next top Android application 2010 is Google Voice. Apple rejected the Google voice application from I phone but I find this application really useful. This application provides you a phone number that can make ring to multiple places and moreover you can access all of your voicemail and text messages over the web. Through this application you can also make your mobile number private.
  • FxCamera- The camera provided by Android application has full customization options and also offers some great effects for photos. But the camera software is that part of the Android application which needs major improvement.
  • Astro File Manager- With the help of this application, you can navigate through Android file system. One of the great things about Android is that you have lower access to the system itself. So, this application really helps you.
  • Tricorder- This application converts your Android device into a virtual tricoder. Smart phones are also similar in function like your tricoders. This application also offers information on environment, including your GPS data, wireless data, and various sound measurements.

We created  this list of top Android Applications after looking into various android based directories,  ratings , reviews and downloads.

Questions received last week:

Hi Vinay, Will my  Mac software run on the iPhone?

No, but since iPhone software is developed using the same development tools as Mac software, it’s possible that developers will be able to re-use some of their code to make iPhone versions of their programs. But the entire user-interface layer of the iPhone, dubbed “Cocoa Touch,” is completely different from the Mac’s Cocoa interface layer, owing to the iPhone’s finger-based interface.

regards, vinay

Android Architecture

Android Architecture

Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications.

The following diagram shows the major components of the Android operating system.

android architecture
android architecture

The main components of the Android architecture:

1. Applications: These are applications written in Java. Some of basic applications includes an calendar, email client, SMS program, maps, making phone calls, accessing the Web browser, accessing your contacts list and others.

If you are an average user, this is the layer you will us most, rest all layers are used by Google programmers, developers and hardware manufacturers.

2. Application Framework: This is the skeleton or framework which all android developers has to follow. The developers can access all framework APIs an manage phone’s basic functions like resource allocation,  switching between processes or programs, telephone applications,  and keeping track of the phone’s physical location.

The architecture is well designed to simplify the reuse of components. Think of the application framework as a set of basic tools with which a developer can build much more complex tools.

3. Libraries: This layer consists of Android libraries written in C, C++, and used by various system. These libraries tells the device how to handle different kinds of data and  are exposed to Android developers via Android Application framework. Some of these libraries includes  media , graphics, 3d,SQLite,web browser library etc.

The Android runtime layer which includes set of core java libraries and DVM (Dalvik Virtual Machine) is also located in same layer.

4. Runtime Android: This layer includes set of base libraries that are required for java libraries.  Every Android application gets its own instance of Dalvik virtual machine. Dalvik has been written so that a device can run multiple VMs efficiently and it executes files in executable (.Dex) optimized for minimum memory.

5. Kernel – Linux: This layer includes Android’s memory management programs, security settings, power management software and several drivers for hardware , file system access, networking and inter-process-communication. The kernel also acts as an abstraction layer between hardware and the rest of the software stack.

Android GUI Architecture

android gui architecture
Android GUI Architecture

Android GUI is single-threaded, event-driven and built on a library of nestable components.

The Android UI framework is organized around the common Model-View-Controller pattern.

The Model : The model represents data or data container. You can see it as a database of pictures on your device. Say, any user wants to hear an audio file, he clicks play button and it triggers an event in your app,  now the app will get data from data store or database and as per input and creates data to be sent back to the user. You can refer this data as Model.

The View: The View is the portion of the application responsible for rendering the display, sending audio to speakers, generating tactile feedback, and so on.

Now as per above example, the view in a hypothetical audio player might contain a component that shows the album cover for the currently playing tune. User will always interact with this layer. User action’s on this layer will trigger events that will go to the application functions.

The Controller: The Controller is the portion of an application that responds to external actions: a keystroke, a screen tap, an incoming call, etc. It is implemented as an event queue. On User’s action, the control is passed over to controller and this will take care of all logic that needs to be done and prepare Model that need to be sent to view layer.

Mobile companies that are using  Android :

Right now the major players in mobile world using Android technology are:

  • HTC
  • Samsung
  • LG

Android versus iphone 3g

Android versus iphone 3g

A smart phone is the one that let you manage your calendar as well as emails. However some people used to carry an iphone while some wish to have an android phone with them. Both have different applications.

Listed down some of the differences between Andriod and iphone 3g

The huge application of the iphone count doesn’t help in certain situations. Apple only just added multitasking to its development community, something programmers have been working with on Android for a couple of years. The iphones doesn’t run widget which is an application that runs on the androids home screen.

Android suffers in other ways. The operating system that is designed in Android is freely available to anyone, so this makes the game designers in particular kind twitchy, especially if they know that the new iphone will only come out once a year, setting a new top bar standard when it does. The Android desktop is on a completely different level from the iPhone desktop. So, if you want to make comparison between them it becomes totally unfair.

Safari is the only browser that we used for the iPhone, and that browser still does not do Flash. However, the Android browser is one of the best browsers on the mobile market. It usually loads pages faster than Safari, has Flash support, and simply does everything a browser should do. Instead of just having icons bearing your phone’s desktop as in the case of iphone the Android phone adds widgets to the desktop.

Android was built with the intention of integrating with Google, but it doesnot integrate with the google in a manner. Want to search Google? Simply click the search button, enter your search string, and you’re off and running. Did I mention Google Voice? Yes, the Android has an app for that.

The concept of the multitasking can be applied in both the phones but the multitasking in android phone is much better than the iphone.
