Are you in the Android clan?6 posts
Yup, still got my one and a half year old Galaxy nexus.
I’m still happy with it especially when compared to the galaxy s3 which was released half a year later than it.
Should be a similar story with the nexus 4
It wasn’t a messaging platform anyway, it is a protcol

Nice idea I guess. Although the same applies, they don’t do that for you own music either.
Plus might shift a lot of music around a lot – if you’ve got more than one device you may have to keep being careful which device you’re sending it to.
Still nice idea
I reckon those type of Aesthetics would come in a 5.0 update – heavy card design push and better integration with google services (e.g. ability to delete photos on google+ from the gallery – or get rid of the gallery, chrome to be the default web browser in Android shipped with google apps)
I strongly suspect the Android team are working on making android more appliance like – let Google Play services deal with the apps etc and android deal with how to run apps.
That’s the impression I got from the IO
Ah no worries, like you I found it interesting but not many others around here commented on it much so it got lost quick.
Have you tried looking/posting the battery screen that shows what’s using up the battery?
You can’t access your own music let alone subscription music using Google Play web app without an internet connection.
I suspect if they were saved to the computer that the music would be easier to pirate. Plus it’s just hassle.
Rhett Reese never was good at farewells, so, uh, that’ll do, pig.
The website you want to use needs two-factor sign in.
Dropbox for example can use authenticator
Yep. I posted a thread about this when the article came out:
The hot word is “lag”

Depends on the app.
Some apps load images differently. Supposedly this could help as it won’t switch states so many times.
Proof is in the pudding and it will be a free update
Or use a bluetooth keyboard with android tablet.
That said, i’d go for a chromebook. Switching from web to word document/drive in android would get irritating fast.
No it doesn’t lag for me. Not even for pictures.
Annoyingly when i’m on a uni wi-fi it doesn’t receive messages – just sends then and shows where people have read up to (toggle to 3G and the messages that have been there for 20 mins suddenly turn up). Think this might be a wi-fi network issue though.
I did have issues with it at first but it’s been getting better everyday (literally) so I assume it’s something to do with the roll out.
They’re getting rid of tons of lines of code with the shift to blink engine.
I would suspect they’re trying to do something about the sluggishness of chrome

The chrome team doesn’t manage android.

it’s their job to make sure there is a good email client on board
That’s gmail. Job done.
It’s not there job to lure you to other email providers – they don’t really care if you use android, they want you to use their services.
Also it makes no sense that it scrolls horizontally.
Applications and widgets menu scrolls horizontally.
Navigate to different home screens horizontally.
Navigate through single pictures at a time horizontally
Scroll through google calendar horizontally in day and week view
Makes sense to me
I think the 3d effect doesn’t fit with the new style direction of android.
Fits in with the home screens and application menu. Probably the reason for it.
The hatching graphics just don’t fit anymore.
Just the graphic you don’t like?
The app is very functional – which is what is important when users are uploading 100 hours of video every minute. Hatching graphic is fine.
I think google have better things to be doing than these changes.
Similar to people “denying” lag; there will always be people complaining of lag.
You seem to have missed the point of a developer conference. The things you wanted would have little to do with developers.
Also I would like to see the option to add imap accounts to the gmail app – or improve the default mail app.
Or you could download a 3rd party email checker. Google want you to use their services – they spend a lot of time and money making them – doesn’t really make sense to spend money making other email better when you have your own email service which is ranked among the best.
They also want businesses to be using google services.
Also every android user has a gmail address.
The same can be said for the stock gallery app
I think it’s fine. After all it’s for viewing my pictures – I want the pictures and not much else, it does this well.
I don’t want lots of glitzy effects etc. How would you change gallery?
YouTube app is fine also. It went through a redesign before the rest of the apps.

UK too bro
Further graphics optimisations always welcomed to help my Galaxy nexus fight off it’s ageing hardware – not that I have that many complaints about it.
Thought i’d post the link to the (fantastic) anandtech article as this seems to be a hot topic on the forums

I guess. Although I get the impression that the roll in the industry that Steve had no longer exists.
Maybe that was the point I should have made.
It’s a valid point.
So really they announced an update for nearly 900 million android devices.
That’s really impressive
I read that as they would:
never use a cheaply made android phone
But you can see if the person has read your message. I find this more useful than labelling them as busy or away.
Ha ha. Yup. The think that is going to be causing the battery drain is using the device.
Or disable them.
