Back in September of 2013 I wrote a pretty popular series of blog posts about the new features available in iOS called iOS7: Day-by-Day (it’s now available as a best-selling e-book if you’re interested ;]). Well, it’s time to show the other side of the aisle some love – Go Team Green!
Android 4.4, better known as KitKat, was released back in November of 2013, and it introduced some cool new features and APIs. Over the coming weeks I’ll take a look at some of the most interesting of these, with a series of blog posts. Sticking to a proven format, the blog posts will discuss the frameworks in detail, and will be backed up with source code for an app so that you can see exactly how the new features can be used in code.
The posts will be released on a weekly basis on this blog – starting tomorrow (18th Feb). Check back each week to catch the next instalment – this blog post will be updated with links to each post as it is published.
