Many latest technological developments were announced at WWDC 2014 conducted by Cupertino based Apple Inc. Healthbook App, home kit, iOS 8 , OSX Yosemite etc were the main attractions of the event . Just as people were getting accustomed to the new features launched by Apple, Google had its IO Conference 2014 where announcements of Android L, Android Auto, Android TV etc were made. Many latest updations on these platforms and IOT enabled devices are on their way.
iOS 8 Beta 3 was recently launched for developers to test their apps and fix their bugs found on the earlier version of the platform. Some of the important features launched with this beta version is the better support for photos, iMessage and third party keyboard applications. Spotlight, search function and iCloud might also undergo improvements. This version of IOS will also come packaged with the much anticipated Health app to monitor and record user’s health data like heart monitor, BMI and track medications.
There has been a close integration as well as expansion of IOS and OS X through Continuity, family sharing features, interactive notifications and various improved versions of Apple owned apps. Changes have also been reflected upon weather app and view of wallpapers. iCloud drive has been augmented with new features along with enabling and disabling options in QuickType. The Health application has now been incremented with M&7 motion coprocessor for data sourcing. A tracker to record the consumption of caffeine has also been added in the same app.
Medical id has also been added as an emergency card feature. All these features are giving tough competition to the Google’s latest IO Conference announcements. The latest Android L has come up with important features of Material Design to add 3D animations, and a feel of depth in the appearance of the apps. Also shape of icons have been flattened like those in Apple’s apps. Hence developers constantly cater to the most versatile improvements arriving to both platforms and offering the consumers that gives them best functionality.
