Android mobile apps development is more favored by Developers

Over the years, Android has become a favourite among users but also has gained the place of preference among developers. One of the core reasons behind it being so popular is its open source nature and customisations that iot brings to the table. Over all it offers a complete diversification of platform independence as compared to its rivals. There is no denying the fact that google play has been expanding over the years and has become the most versatile database of mobile applications overtaking Apple app store. The Android platform has been based on the principles of open source and allow user integrated customisations which has boosted it to the top spot among end users. Experienced developers prefer Android for various fundamental reasons. As per the reports, Android is chosen by 34.4 percent of developers while iOS is chosen by 32.7 percent of developers. This percentage comes down to 17.3 for HTML5 mobile apps and 4.5 percent for Windows. Over 84 percent of developers prefer Android tablets for developing apps to iOS as well as Windows. The dominating market share of Android is the major reason why developers are attracted to the platform. Moreover, there are many other reasons also why developers are driven towards Android : 1. It offers greater access and customization 2. It has a greater level of integration between applications and the platform Android has always provided a safe ground for newbie developers by offering them tools and services to jump the android bandwagon. The core issue with Apple is its tightly woven ecosystem, which makes it difficult to leave but Android has a plus point because of being open source. So unless users are looking for Apple’s hallmark, Android could certainly be better mobile OS choice for them.

Dynamic Grouping with Kendo and SQL

For a while now I’ve been building dashboard objects for some specific projects in the HTML5/jQuery framework – Kendo UI. Coming from an Xcelsius/Crystal Reports/SSRS development background, this has been a major change of approach for me with everything being accomplished purely in code. In my experience to engage users, dashboards need to be meaningful – presenting the right data to the right audience, and well formatted – using a clean and uncluttered layout and a tasteful colour palette. They also need to be responsive – loading quickly and reacting to user input without any drama. In this article I’ve written about a problem I came across while working on a customer project, and a slightly different way to go about resolving it. Changing Dates The brief for one of our projects was to create a dashboard that could display different time ranges based on a user selection. A very common request, and one we accomplished in Kendo by defining values in a user input and passing them back via our REST service to SQL stored procedures as a parameter to change our date range. The problem with this approach appears with any trend metric, where Kendo will default to a category axis label for each and every grouping. Fine if you have a sensible number of data points, but if you’re switching from a dashboard displaying a weeks-worth of data to one displaying a year, the effect on a trend chart is something like this…
