Building Rich, Animated Android User Interfaces (UIs): A Practical Solution for Software Engineers
This webinar presents practical solution for software engineers challenged to create the latest UIs and explores the use of the Inflexion UI platform in solving this UI problem.
Given the rise of Android across many products it is essential that device developers find creative ways to differentiate their devices in the market. Whether smart phones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment or TV type products, creating cutting edge UIs is essential in this quest for device differentiation.
Unfortunately creating cutting edge UIs for Android (and Linux) is both difficult and time consuming and often results in fixed UIs which are hard to modify as markets change.What You Will Learn
