Word Lens finally hits Android, instant on screen language Translation


Friday 06th of July 2012 / androidspin.com
Way back in January we saw an app called Word Lens. It has been around for iOS for quite some time, but hadn’t made its way to Android yet. Well, that all changed just last week as Word Lens finally made its official debut on the Play Store.So what is Word Lens you ask? Well it is an augmented reality app that translates various languages of written text on your device’s screen to your language using the camera. This becomes extremely helpful when traveling in other country’s where the native language isn’t your own. Open the app and point it at signs, menus, newspapers or what ever you might need to understand. It is best explained by the super cool little promo video that they released a while ago, check it out.Pretty cool isn’t it. The app is on the Play Store and has two formats available. There is a free demo version that shows you how the word reverse and word erase functions work. It really isn’t all that amazing and is kind of annoying. Then you have the paid version which has been released at an introductory price of $4.99 which comes w

Why the Oracle-IBM pact could spell disaster for Android


Wednesday 13th of October 2010 / talkandroid.com
This past monday, it was announced that Oracle and IBM were buddying up  to collaborate on OpenJDK, which is Oracle’s open source Java implementation.//For those of you who aren’t up to speed on the whole Oracle versus Google fiasco, know that Oracle is suing Google over what it feels are patent infringements over Google’s use of Java in the Android OS, which Oracle took over the rights to when they acquired Sun Microsystems.Now, you may be wondering why IBM being thrown into the mix could be bad news for Google. As it turns out, Android apps are primarily coded in a restricted offset of the Java language, and Android’s ability to run this Java code has its foundation in the Harmony project, which is an open source Java implementation which was created under the Apache Software Foundation.The code that makes up Harmony was largely written by IBM employees, which is where things get sticky for Google and Android. In light of this new partnership with Oracle, IBM has said that they will be focusing most of their efforts on OpenJDK with Oracle, leaving ma

MIPS is porting Android 4.1 to MIPS-based tablets


Friday 20th of July 2012 / androidauthority.com
When Google made Android, they tried to make it run on every current and upcoming chip architectures, and they did that by creating the Dalvik Virtual Machine, with the vast majority of Android applications being built on it.There are however some types of apps, like 3D games, that either need a bit of extra performance, or were written in C++ on another platform. In many cases, it’s easier to just port this kind of apps as they are to Android, then it is to rewrite them in another language. That is why Google created the Native Development Kit for developers. However, the problem is these apps can be compiled for only one chip architecture at a time, and they won’t work cross-platform.In Android 4.0 and later, Google has started adding support for other chip architectures, including MIPS and x86, but that support comes mainly just for Dalvik apps. Intel has tried to solve the native app compatibility problem by emulating the native apps made for ARM on their chips, which causes some performance decrease, but at least most apps work by default.MIPS on the other hand hasn&

I know that i can develop a debugger for that compiler by using the Android operating system debugger APIs however it is compiling that source file programatically that seems to be the problem and i can't think of a way how to do it. Is there any way that i can do it or it simply is impossible right now on the android.

PHP or JSP(server side) and Java-Android(Client side)


Wednesday 18th of December 2013 / androidforums.com
I know a little java, android languages.Now I want to build an Android server-client application and for client side I will use Android(java) and for server side either JSP/servlet or PHP.So I have 2 questions:1)What is easier and faster to learn PHP or JSP/servlet(also don't forget that I also know java)? 2)Which one would work better? as the client side would be written in Android(java) may be the JSP/servlet would work better, or it doesn't matter?, and as PHP is the most used server language may be it would work better?Thank you in advance.
