News Google's Low-Code App Maker Now Generally Available Google announced the general availability of its low-code App Maker tool, designed to quickly create apps for its business-oriented G Suite portfolio. Unveiled as a preview in November 2016, it copies the model of other offerings in the growing low-code space, featuring a cloud-based IDE and built-in templates, drag-and-drop UI composability and point-and-click data modeling, which reportedly can let business developers easily create their own apps or drastically cut the time needed by professional coders to create apps. In announcing the general availability of App Maker, Google cited research indicating custom mobile apps can save employees 7.5 hours per week, one of the driving motivations behind the increasing universe of low-code tools in the face of a dearth of professional programmers. But the tool has a desktop/browser focus and doesn't produce native mobile apps, even for the company's own Android platform. However, … [Read more...] about Google’s Low-Code App Maker Now Generally Available — ADTmag

The newly released Android Style Guide is not only a great new tool for developers as well as a tool for Google in its fight against problems of inconsistent UI design in apps, but it actually says quite a lot about how Google has traditionally done things, how it is changing, and points to where Google still needs to keep working. Oddly, the way forward for Google has always been hidden in the Android logo itself. No brand logo has ever been remixed, altered and changed as much as the Android logo, and that parallels the platform itself. However, no matter how much the Android logo is remixed, it is always instantly recognizable as the Android logo, and that is the aim of Matias Duarte and the new Android Style Guide - to give the Android platform an underlying identity and consistency while still allowing the differentiation that has become the hallmark of the platform. If you're looking to pick nits with Google and Android, the first thing you'll notice about the new style … [Read more...] about The Android Style Guide and Google’s emerging identity

Last night, Google released an invite-only beta of a new email app called Inbox. It wasn't really expected, but I was able to get an invite for the app and I've been playing around with it. In many ways, I can see this already replacing Gmail as my go-to mail client on my phone, but it is somewhat odd that this was made as a completely new app, rather than simply a Gmail update.The basic idea of Inbox is to offer a more productive version of an email client. Rather than simply being a list of messages and conversations, Inbox understands that there is a lot more to be done with email. With that in mind, Inbox gathers your reminders, allows you to pin messages with reminders attached, automatically bring back messages that you don't want to deal with right away, and take contextual actions on certain messages. If you've used Gmail, Google Now, and Mailbox, then you will be familiar with everything found in Inbox. First of all, the app is an extension of the current iteration … [Read more...] about Google Inbox Hands-on: Gmail + Google Now + productivity = awesome
