Google pushes devs to make better tablet apps

0. phoneArena 08 Oct 2012, 16:04 posted on

Google has put in place a lot of tools to help out developers and allow for apps to scale to the various screen sizes available with Android devices. Of course, responsive design is only a partial answer, and ultimately it is still on developers to make their apps better for Android tablets...

This is Google's shift in strategy and the right one. Apps autoscaling just doesn't work.

Every time Google does something to streamline the process for one of its services it never works in the end. Just like ICS was supposed to unify Android and keep devices updated for at least a year, it ended up causing a lot of devices to not get ICS until later while Jellybean is the current iteration.

dude? you know what you talking about? ICS was supposed to unify android TABLETS and PHONES, you know what that means? dev only needs to wrhite code once and works everywhere unlike iOS where devs need to write code for every change done on the hardware, and devices shipping with ICS are the ones supposed to get updates..... not older phones, you should shut it of you don't know what you are talking about

One world: Landscape. If you go to any store that sells Android tablets, they are all displayed in landscape mode. Don't developers get that they need to ensure their tablet versions also run in landscape? It's annoying when I am using my Transformer with the keyboard dock and the screen is sideways. Make tablet apps default to landscape.
