Android Meta-Market Model Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Droidcon UK 2010 Meta­Market Model    
  • 2. Developers: What Are the Android  Market's Problems?    
  • 3. Users: What Are the Android  Market's Problems?    
  • 4. Android Market ● Tactical Problem #1: Developers Dislike It – Limited descriptive material – No links – Only one-way feedback via comments – Rating spam – Etc.    
  • 5. Android Market ● Tactical Problem #2: Users Dislike It – Off-device searching ● Tough to type on the frakkin' keyboard – Better discovery options ● Tactical Problem #3: Glacial Innovation – Market reboot: 5 months and counting...    
  • 6. Android Market ● Strategic Problem: Locked-Up Data – No platform for ecosystem innovation – Relegated to pirating the data ● AppBrain, Androlib, etc. – Not unique to Google and Android ● Solution??? Route Around Damage    
  • 7. Adobe AIR ● Corporate Routing – Submit once, pushed into Market and additional markets – Data still owned by Adobe, most likely – Interesting but limited ● Only AIR ● Only Adobe-selected partners    
  • 8. Vision ● Developers – Write and publish rich description once – Description published in CC-licensed feed ● Markets you choose auto-list ● Used for other search engines, etc. – Android Market browser extension/bookmarklet ● Avoid rekeying in most information – Goal: negligible additional effort for you,   free data for ecosystem 
  • 9. Vision ● Users: many ways to find apps, in/out Market – On-device apps using richer data – Web sites ● Better search ● Recommendations ● Two-way interaction with developers ● Push-to-phone ● Based off of free data, not relying on Google good graces    
  • 10. Thoughts?    
  • 11. HOW?    
  • 12. How Do Blogs Work? ● Standards – RSS/Atom – Microformats (tags, reviews, etc.) ● Service Providers – Blog hosts – Comment engines (DISQUS, IntenseDebate) – Search engines, aggregators, etc.    
  • 13. Standards for Metadata ● Common App Description – Rich to start with, extensible for innovation – Direct data plus pointers ● Discussion/feedback (embeddable?) ● Description Publishing – In-APK via resource – Online via file, microformat, etc. ● CC licensed (see OpenStreetMap)    
  • 14. Build the Ecosystem ● Service Providers – Aggregator for feed of apps and updates – Comment/discussion engines ● Toolsmiths – Android Market bookmarklet/extension – Library project for standard “about” box based on metadata    
  • 15. Build the Ecosystem ● App Stores – Work off of the feed – Secured way to get APKs for paid apps ● User Experience – Sites and apps to search the aggregated apps – Link/embed feedback engines – Ratings republished via hReview, aggregated    
  • 16. Bootstrap ● Spike Solution – Initial standards – Android Market tool – Web app to collect/publish metadata – Aggregator – Lots and lots and lots of evangelism    
  • 17. Thoughts?
