Android Developer Soapbox – Desktop-Like, Richer Media APIs


Hsu: So as a company
and as a developer, most of our experience
is not mobile, but actually on the desktop. Client–when we were talking
about client applications. And Android was really nice,
because the platform provides a lot of very desktop
kind of features. It’s not like
a watered-down mobile app– uh, mobile
operating system, really. You get a lot of powerful things
on the platform. One thing I would
like to see, however, is richer media APIs. The existing APIs
let us get what we get done
on the phone now, but, uh, we’d really like
to do some other things, and, uh, it doesn’t really
have that– that, uh, flexibility yet.
