Android 4.1:Jelly Bean

Google unveiled Android 4.1, the latest version of its mobile operating system, code-named Jelly Bean, at the annual Google I/O developers’ conference. It but manages to bring several new features, enhancements and refinements to the entire Android OS.

Here are some exciting features:

  • Project Butter

The presence of Jelly Bean’s is focus on performance. This can be best described as Google’s latest attempt to tackle the problem through a project called Butter to improve the performance of the Android OS.
There are three things that look stunning wrapped on Butter Project, including for anti flickr, Vsync(vertical sync), To put it in simple terms, VSync is able to synchronize whatever changes you make by refreshing the LCD screen. VSync is said to be a fundamental piece in the jigsaw, especially when screen-related work is concerned. Triple Buffering to optimize OpenGL, as well as optimization of the processor to increase the responsiveness of the phone.

  • Touch

Google has also worked on Touch Responsiveness. Basically, in the real world, we touch physical objects all the time, gaining an immediate response of sensation. Google wants the same concept to apply to a touch screen display and Android is not the best example to tout, as iOS and Windows Phone platforms are superior in this aspect. Jelly Bean actually tries to predict where you’ll touch the screen next. And it’s important for Google to take steps to make the Android experience as smooth as possible.
It’s tough to tell how much of a difference Project Butter will truly make, but based on a bit of time with a Nexus 7 tablet running Jelly Bean; it seems as if Jelly Bean runs more smoothly than prior Android versions.

  • Voice Typing

Voice Typing feature is also available in offline mode. Voice Typing has the same idea in mind, although it has decided to do everything locally. This means you can even use Voice Typing when roaming, as no active data connection is required, and you need not receive a bill shock at the end of the month. The amount of lag time has also been reduced, so you should receive a faster response as well – resulting in an increase of productivity.

  • Widget

widgets are now able to re-size automatically whenever they are shifted over to a different home screen with far less real estate to work with. Not only that,  the rest of the icons are courteous enough to make way for the new widget. Automatic resizing for widgets is an extremely practical feature to have, while it also increases the overall fluidity of the user experience.

  • Keyboard

The keyboard in Jelly Bean is all about adding yet more language functionality. Included is the ability to do things like swap languages instantly thanks to a dedicated language select button. Custom keyboard inputs are also there for those who need them. It’s fast, and that’s the lasting impression it leaves.

  • Photo Gallery

Here we see an extremely wonderful feature .On Jelly Bean Android, take photos are claimed to be more intuitive. Deleting an image has just gotten far more intuitive and easier – all you need to do is just swipe it away, and it would be deleted. Hopefully there is an option to confirm the deletion process, as you can never quite tell whether an accidental brush to the side might result in your precious photos deleted .

  • Google Search

Another major update in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean would be the introduction of Google Now. As its name implies, Google Now will offer you the information you want. Google Now is basically search evolved, and tries to second-guess what you might be coming to look for based on previous searches and contextual factors. It will draw out results, presenting things like weather, sports results or appointment cards.

  • Notifications

Notifications is one of the biggest changes in Jelly Bean. Google almost got it right with Ice Cream Sandwich and in Jelly Bean they have filled in most of the gaps. Think of the notifications like as stripped down on the surface, but much more flexible should you need them to be.Notifications are stacked according to relevant applications with the uppermost being expanded. Below that, each individual notification can be expanded using pinch to zoom.

So, what do you think of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?

Android Beam was one of the most exciting features, It uses Wi-Fi Direct and NFC to allow consumers to transfer a 1GB movie file within three minutes, or a 10MB music file within two seconds, by simply touching another Galaxy S3 phone.

3. Pop up Play
Regardless, the large display is put to good use when the handset’s Pop Up Play feature is in action. This feature allows you to play a video anywhere on your screen while other apps simultaneously run on the same home screen.
