  5. 5. POPULATION CREDIT CARDS US 317M 686M KOREA 50M 96M VIETNAM 89M 2M INDIA 1200M 24M INDONESIA 237M 10M The lack of credit cards excludes huge audience
  6. 6. + + Standout design that’s built to last Flow between your favourite apps in a smoother, faster way Nokia X distinctly Nokia with a little extra

  12. 12. Nokia X Analyser Submit .apk to Nokia Store 75% work unmodified Port using Nokia X Services SDK 25% need a little retouch Up to 8h porting* *For most apps, depending on application complexity and number of used APIs that need porting We give you easy to use online and offline tools to check your applications within seconds!

  16. 16. An API level 16 Android Virtual Device (AVD) with the Nokia X services enabled Both ARM & X86 images (HAXM accelerated, really fast!) Works with ADB! Nokia X Emulator
  17. 17. Baseline Platform Android 4.1 ------------------------------- Nokia X Software Platform 1.0 based on AOSP V 4.1 Google Maps Google In-App Billing Google Cloud Messaging Nokia X Adapting to Nokia Services
  18. 18. The Google and Nokia services can coexist in the applications Make sure you fail gracefully! You can load and use the one that is present at runtime A one time investment in terms of developer effort Allows submission of same APK to Google Play and the Nokia Store Address more users with a single release Simultaneous release of same version (QA permitting) in all stores Nokia X One APK approach
  19. 19. <permission android:name="(your_app_pkg).permission.C2D_MESSAGE" android:protectionLevel="signature" /> <uses-permission android:name="(your_app_pkg).permission.C2D_MESSAGE" /> <uses-permission android:name="" /> <uses-permission android:name="" /> <application ... > ... <receiver android:name="" android:permission=""> <intent-filter> <action android:name="" /> <action android:name="" /> <category android:name="(your_app_pkg)" /> </intent-filter> </receiver> <receiver android:name="" android:permission="" > <intent-filter> <action android:name="" /> <action android:name="" /> <category android:name="(your_app_pkg)" /> </intent-filter> </receiver> <service android:name=".PushIntentService" /> <service android:name=".GCMIntentService" /> </application> Nokia X One APK approach – common manifest
  20. 20. try { PushRegistrar.checkDevice(this); // (continue with Nokia Notifications logic) } catch (UnsupportedOperationException e1) { try { GCMRegistrar.checkDevice(this); // (continue with GCM logic) } catch (UnsupportedOperationException e2) { // neither notification service is available } } Nokia X One APK approach – runtime detection
  21. 21. No need to reinvent the wheel! The Nokia X SDK plugin contains One APK examples for all Nokia X APIs Latest versions also available on GitHub Nokia X One APK approach – samples
  22. 22. By default – DON’T TOUCH IT (all changes at platform, not API level)
  23. 23. Adopting Android UI to Nokia X UI requires tests Nokia X uses HDPI bucket Different font (like Nokia Pure) might mean different text length
  24. 24. Android’s Menu (3.0 and older) is replaced by Nokia’s Options menu.
  25. 25. Registration Publishing (NO yearly fees!) Analyser Service SDK
  26. 26. Nokia In Application Payment Downloads and Ads Nokia Developer Offers DVLUP developer program
