Not too long ago, Google released
the Android Jelly Bean raw source code for its Android Open Source Project. This
makes it possible for developers to work on updates and releases for tablet and
smartphone apps far more easily, and it also provides greater support and more features
to the Jelly Bean operating system.
Developers should have a greater
array of customization options, as well as the ability to add a greater number
of features to their Jelly Bean applications, because its compatible devices
and their binaries are already prepared to work with the source code.
The full, latest version of Jelly
Bean is available for use; the first device to utilize the OS is the Samsung
Galaxy Nexus HSPA+. This version is reported to have new features and faster,
more efficient app updates, on top of being easier to use. It also offers
resizable app widgets, improved speeds, better notifications, extended Android
Beam Bluetooth capabilities, and more.
Following this release,
Australia-based mobile app development company Smarter Apps announced that it
would be bringing in a set of feature-rich products and services to its clients
that are interested in developing for Jelly Bean.
