Review on What’s new in Android 4.4 ‘KitKat’Google released the latest version of Android (version 4.4), known as KitKat on 31st Oct 2013. It is designed to work on a wide variety of devices. The new version of Android has got a lot of exciting features for both users and developers.
Some of the new features in the latest version of Android for developers to learn and explore are:
The screen recording feature of Android 4.4 lets you capture video of your app and save it as an MP4 file. The recording can done at any device-supported resolution and then shared directly from the device to a computer for post-production.
Full Screen Immersive Mode
Full-screen immersive mode in KitKat allows any app to go truly full-screen, hiding both the navigation and status bars and takes advantage of every last pixel on the screen of a smartphone or tablet. You simply need to do a swipe from the top or bottom of the screen, in order to display the system bars again. Basically, developers can hide the entire systems interface while the user is engaged in their apps(like e-reader and other media apps and games).
Android 4.4s new transitions framework allows app developers to define how one screen animate to another scene. Developers can use predefined transition types called TransitionManager that animate the properties that matters the most to your app.
Storage Access Framework
With the release of Android 4.4 KitKat, users now have a smoother way of accessing and creating documents in an app from a variety of cloud storage providers. Developers can add their own storage devices to Android without having to do it on a specific vendor by vendor basis.
