Google has launched a new mobile apps today counterpart to its Chrome Experiments site, Android Experiments.
The idea behind Android experiments is just like that of Chrome Experiements, it is to showcase apps that use new and cutting-edge technology, aesthetics and interfaces. All the apps in the Android Experiments Gallery will be open source so other developers can see how they were made.
The gallery contains about 20 experiments that range from innovative watch faces Android Wear to the IOIO Plotter, an Android tablet-powered that can draw on flip charts.
According to Google, the apps was built using the Android SDK and NDK, Android Wear, the IOIO board, Cinder, Processing, OpenFrameworks and Unity. “Each project challenges in small and big ways how we think of the devices we interact with every day,” Google design advocate Roman Nurik and Google Creative Lab member Richard The write today.
App developers who wish to have their apps on the site can submit their app now.
According to a Google spokeperson, the experiments will not get their devoted collection on the Google Play store, but they will be available for download on the site.
it seems this was made up to showcase what the technologies in Android and modern phones can do.
