Open Android Apps is a site that publishes functionality of apps that can be reused by 3rd parties, i.e. the app interface/intents filters. This is the missing link between the dependency manager (shown in 2010) and the intents registry (showing in 2009) of Android.
In this presentation the following questions are answered:
- How does the intent system of Android compare to other platforms?
- Which applications offer interfaces? An overview from recent app store analysis and common use cases
- What are the benefits, what the drawbacks of providing and using an interface?
Finally, a short demo is given showing the depency manager that uses data of the Open Android Apps database.
