Iterate 70: Google I/O 2014 roundtable


This will be a lot of fun. I love the guys at Shifty Jelly and the insight I imagine he can provide in to Android L should be really cool to hear. Pocketcasts is my most used third party app on iOS and my favorite app on Android. Partially because the syncing is so good, partially because the design on the Android version is top notch.

It will be a lot of fun hearing how and why Google didn't mention Glass at all in the keynote. Despite all the hype about wearables and wrist-tops. Fascinating.

Yeah, there just wasn't enough room and Glass got an update the day before I/O so it isn't dead by any means. Now G+, interesting omission.

Really guys. If Google wanted to update everyone on every product they'd need 3 days of 2 hr keynotes. I'm sure they saw the Apple Keynote and said lets just hit up Android Everywhere and somehow that Server guy must have begged to get on stage to talk about the cloud server products. That killed the keynote for sure.

There was a lot of great stuff announced at I/O, and like WWDC, a conference aimed at the developer for sure. I hope the new version of Android is more secure the previous versions. I think G+ is doomed to go from a star product to just an integrated only product, G+ will just be an API to add to your code and not much more.

Great episode guys. I was wondering how the Shifty guys would feel about Palette [the color picking library in Android now to accomplish what they spent plenty of time building into Pocket Casts].
