Android 8.0 Oreo: Features & Highlights




Android started off with no of version & Google's home cooked OS has reached a point where you don't see much changed or any new UI tweaks, Few versions did get a complete makeover but few tried & failed. Android O came up with features which was much needed & few Custom ROM or Third party Launchers were providing it for ages. Stock experience is always better so these features are always welcome. Android O not only brought much needed changes but also made life simpler by adding & tweaking things for which we constantly download numerous Apps or maybe downloaded or rooted our device.

So without further a do let's see what are the notable features & Highlights of Android O:

1. User Interface - UI is something which gives the device a completely new look, when you feel bored with your device look & feel a new UI is the only way to revive things. Android O doesn't brings too much of improvements in terms of UI but keeps things simple & consolidates everything. It gives the UI cleaner look at organizing things in a pretty neat way. Talking about UI, the Main settings you see has clubbed few things which were a separate tab or options previously. The Icons have changed as well with the help of Adaptive Icons which would need developer level help to give it a new look.




   

2. Picture-in-Picture mode (PiP) - PiP mode is the flagship feature of Android O, it was a much needed & can be said the most awaited feature in Android. Having this features gives your smartphone a PC like an experience where one of your App is floating around the screen while you navigate & try to do things. For e.g. While reading some content or texting you can watch a youtube video without any hassle. Split screen can do the same but it sometimes causes a little pain while using split-screen. PiP works with just pressing the home button.



3. Notification Dots - Notification dot is another sweet addon as the Apps shows you a small dot when there is a notification or you can say unread batch counts. This feature is useful as it looks clean rather than showing you the no of notification a small dot does the job. When you tap & hold the Icon it will show you new options, this feature is already available in Nova launcher if you have used it anytime. As always said an inbuilt feature is always the best.



4. Smart text selection & APK source - Smart selection gives you more option when you select any text, it can be selected from a Mail/Browser/Messages etc. For eg., if you select a number it will give you an option to Dail or select whereas previously you have to select, copy open dial pad & then call. APK source is basically for security purpose, some might find this feature helpful while some may feel that it causes a lot of headaches. If you are a user who constantly downloads APK's from 3rd party source then this might be little annoying, 1 or 2 occasions should work completely fine.

5. Bluetooth Support & Auto Fill - High-performance Bluetooth audio was one of the first Oreo features to capture the attention of the Android masses. Sony donated its LDAC codec to Google for inclusion in Oreo, opening up the mobile OS to superior audio connections on supported hardware. Android O gets all tick when it comes to Bluetooth support so that all hardware doesn't sound the same & the true potential can be felt. Auto Fill is something which makes our life simpler by remembering the details you entered. Just how chrome works but this features helps to remember & auto-fill via App-wide.

6. Battery Optimization - There isn't any phone that provides battery as per our expectation, expectations can be different & also maybe unrealistic. The manufacturer has started to ship devices with bigger battery capacity & also with fast charging support. The main concern is if Android itself is not optimized then this hardware is just like a piece of brick. To change the same Android has made numerous changes when it comes to battery optimization. Android O brings in new optimization wherein the background limit is maintained by OS & Apps which runs without any reasons are cut through the process. The OS has made smarter to know the difference between Active & Passive background activity.





So these were few of the most anticipated features & changes hope you like it. Do share your comments below & let us know your thoughts on the same.

What You Need to Know About UX vs. UI for App Development




When designing a mobile app, prioritizing UX is essential. That said, UI is an equally important part of good native appdesign. If you don’t work in the field of software and app development, you may wonder what the difference is. Many people mistakenly use the terms UX and UI interchangeably. However, they actually refer to distinct elements of a mobile app, both of which play a crucial role in attracting and retaining users.

Understanding the Role of UX

UX is short for “user experience.” When a customer uses your app, the processes should be intuitive and simple.

The UX designer works behind the scenes to ensure a smooth experience for all users. Thus, you’re unlikely to even notice the quality of a UX designer’s work unless it’s poor. You expect an app to be easily understandable; you’ll only pay attention to the general user experience if it’s confusing and flawed.

To ensure a quality UX, designers study industry best practices, research user behavior, and take other necessary steps to better understand what customers are looking for in an app.

What a UI Designer Does

UI refers to the app’s “user interface.” The UI designer is essentially responsible for the concrete visual elements of the program. This includes typography, graphics, color scheme, widgets, buttons, and more.

The discipline of UI design can be compared to graphic design, where every discrete visual element must contribute to a consistent overall style. UI designers take on the added challenge of designing visuals that are interactive in nature: when a user clicks on a button, it needs to do something other than simply look appealing.
How They Differ

Both UX and UI designers play critical roles in the app development process, and often coordinate with each other to ensure the finished product is cohesive.

UX designers are particularly focused on making sure a user is able to complete specific tasks within an app. A visually-appealing product won’t succeed if customers can’t figure out how to use it for its intended purpose.

In this respect, UX is a science. Designers study their goals to determine the most logical way for an app’s processes to flow. Users should never be confused about what steps they should take next to complete a task. Even if they’re not confused, too many steps can result in a cumbersome UX – simplicity and efficiency are paramount.

UI design is more of an art than a science. The UX designer determines what a person actually experiences when using a specific feature. Meanwhile, the UI designer determines how that experience will look and feel. The app should be useful, but it should also “feel good” to use.

Both roles are critical. Quality UX ensures that users intuitively understand how an app functions without reading through instructions, while quality UI ensures that they enjoy the overall experience. Although there is a lot of overlap in their goals, UI designers and UX designers approach their jobs from different starting points. When they both do their jobs well, the result is an app that looks good and serves a legitimate purpose for the user.
