Como está a fragmentação do Android em 2014

Essa aparente distribuição aleatória de retângulos coloridos representa o estado da fragmentação do Android em 2014. O OpenSignal, um site dedicado a mapear todas as coisas no mundo mobile, coletou dados e encontrou 18.769 dispositivos diferentes baixando seu app no Android.

Se a fragmentação é algo realmente ruim é algo muito debatido. Por um lado, a imensa quantidade de tamanhos e dispositivos diferentes faz com que o desenvolvimento de um app amplamente acessível seja uma árdua tarefa, sem contar a dificuldade para fazer ele rodar otimizadamente em todos os dispositivos. Acha que testar um app nos smartphones mais populares é o bastante? Nada disso. A OpenSignal diz que os 10 dispositivos mais populares do ano passado cobriam apenas 21% do mercado. E esse número desde então caiu para 15%, então até mesmo testar um app se tornou mais difícil do que era.

Não vamos nem começar a falar sobre as pessoas que ainda usam o Android 2.2 Froyo. Quando o CEO da Apple Tim Cook subiu ao palco da WWDC 2014 para anunciar a adoção imensa do iOS 7 especialmente em comparação com o KitKat, que então estava em apenas 9% dos dispositivos, ele tinha um enorme sorriso no rosto. A OpenSignal diz que as coisas melhoraram desde então (agora está próximo dos 21%), mas não se compara com o iOS 7, que está em 9 a cada 10 dispositivos da Apple.

Por que atualizações rápidas do Android não importam tanto quanto antes

E o aumento dos sensores nos nossos smartphones também criam restrições técnicas para o desenvolvimento de apps. Claro que, com o tempo, sensores se tornam populares e aparecem em praticamente todos os dispositivos, mas alguns deles podem simplesmente ser descontinuados. Um exemplo lembrado pela OpenSignal vem da Samsung, que, quando foi do Galaxy S4 para o S5, deixou de lado os sensores de umidade e temperatura ambiente, e em troca colocou sensor de batimentos cardíacos e scanner de impressão digital. Essa constante mudança no cenário de smartphones e o que eles podem ou não fazer é algo bastante caótico, especialmente em comparação com iOS e Windows Phone.

No entanto, a fragmentação é, em parte, o que faz o Android tão bom e diferente dos outros. E o Google Play Services acaba compensando muitas das limitações das versões antigas do sistema do Google. Além disso, é sempre bom ter uma imensa variedade de opções, em todas as faixas de preço. Podemos ter o smartphone que melhor se adapta às nossas necessidades com o Android, e a fragmentação, em partes, ajuda nisso. Esse é o mundo maluco do Android que vivemos. [OpenSignal]

‘Toast Time’ Gets New Levels on August 27th



Force of Habit’s Toast Time [$2.99] was well-beloved last year, nabbing a 5-star rating from us. This arena shooter took some notes from Super Crate Box [$1.99] but really stood out as its own original action game. Now, six months after the game’s iOS release, Toast Time is getting a new level pack in a free update, releasing on August 27th.

Toast Time UpdateToast Time Update

The new level pack is called Uncle Martin’s Freezer Cabinet, and is an icy affair: all the levels involve trying to protect the clock while slipping around everywhere. There’s a total of 9 new levels, each with their own new bits of music. This brings the total number of levels to 54. These levels should prove to be rather challenging, as they’re full of enemies that will go right for the clock right away, sothese are best for advanced players. Haven’t played Toast Time in a while and lost your save? They’re available right away – the levels are to the left of the first set, and are available right away.

The update releases for both the iOS and Android versions of the game on the 27th, and will be a free update. As well, the game is releasing on Steam for those who want to try playing the game with a mouse.

Novas células solares transparentes poderão carregar seu smartphone no futuro

A ideia de um painel solar completamente transparente sempre foi um sonho. Tal tecnologia revolucionária significaria que poderíamos transformar nossas janelas em geradores de energia e também desenvolver smartphones com telas que carregam o dispositivo. E, pelo jeito, esse sonho está próximo de se tornar realidade.

Uma equipe de pesquisadores da Universidade Estadual de Michigan, nos EUA, desenvolveu um concentrador luminescente solar totalmente transparente. Enquanto painéis solares tradicionais coletam energia do sol usando células escuras de silício e convertem em eletricidade com o uso do efeito fotovoltaico, os concentradores solares focam a luz solar em um motor a calor que produz eletricidade. No caso desta nova tecnologia, o material parecido com plástico canaliza ondas de luz específicas de luz solar em direção às células solares fotovoltaicas presentes nas suas bordas. “Como o material não absorve nem emite luz no espectro visível, ele parece excepcionalmente transparente para olhos humanos”, disse Richard Lunt, que liderou à pesquisa.

bzqbrqekyg5fqsgvkrum

Cientistas já criaram células solares parcialmente transparentes no passado, mas a existência de células totalmente transparentes abre novas possibilidades. “Isso pode ser usado em prédios altos com muitas janelas, ou dispositivos móveis que exigem alta qualidade estética, como um smartphone ou e-reader”, diz Lunt.

Isso é bastante empolgante. Um smartphone movido a energia solar é um sonho para qualquer pessoa que odeie fios de recarga. E o que parecia um futuro quase impossível pode estar mais perto do que imaginávamos. [MSU]

Out Now: ‘Swing Copters’, ‘Deep Under The Sky’, ‘Spooklands’, ‘Pac-Man Forever’, ‘Motorsport Manager’ and More

Here we are at another Wednesday night already, and another big batch of new iOS games have just hit the US App Store. One new game that is especially noteworthy is Swing Copters, as it’s the newest game from Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen. Will this one reach that same level of popularity? I think it might just be too hard for a repeat performance, but we’ll see. Also be sure to check out Spooklands, which is finally available after a false-start release a couple weeks back, and Deep Under The Sky which is the new game from Incredipede creator Colin Northway. I also included The Firm and They Need To Be Fed 3 in the list even though they already launched earlier this week because you shouldn’t miss out on either.
